About Patrick McNamee

We are a family of from Northern Ireland, Patrick, Sheila and sons Jordan and James.

Patrick McNamee purchased this villa in 2007

Why Patrick McNamee chose Vau

We fell in love with this area on our first visit in 2006 and having viewed a property in front of our villa we were bowled over by the stunning views and when we stood on the adjoining plot knew that this is where we wanted to buy

What makes this villa unique

The property was built for us and to the very highest standards. It is gated and enclosed giving a very private and secure feel whilst still proving some stunning views of the lagoon and Atlantic ocean

What a beautiful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

The property was immaculate on arrival, and the house is exactly as described. It was spacious even for eight of us (two families). It is so well equipped we didn't eat out much or venture very far as the kids loved the pool and spent hours in it. The local beach is beautiful. We did a day trip to Obidos which was lovely, and ventured round to Foz, however we all agreed, the Bom Successo beach side of the lagoon is by far the best! We have some great memories to treasure, and Patrick was so helpful throughout the whole process (including when we managed to lock ourselves out of the house on our last day!). Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us.

Stunning Location / Great Villa / Great Golf

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 9 month old son and I along with a group of friends (with kids also) have just left this villa after a 10 day break. We all had a great time. The villa has everything you could need as a group. The Obidos Lagoon area is spectacular. It has so much to offer. Safe swimming & bathing for toddlers, kids and adults. Paddle boarding and various other water sports for the more adventurous. Great golf at a choice of courses. We played Bom Succeso and Royal Obidos. Both were a challenge. Then there is the surf in Peniche (approx 20km away or a boat ride from lagoon to Balael beach) or across the bay in Foz De Arelho for those brave enough to swim across at low tide. The beautiful walled town of Obidos is a great day out for all also. I could go on! We will be back for a third visit for sure!

Best holiday to date - what a location!!

  • 5 of 5

What a find! So perfect that we have already booked for next year. The villa is outstanding on many counts: incredibly spacious, well equipped, sensitively designed and has a wonderfully fresh feel about it. The pool and surrounding grounds are a real bonus and we spent much time taking a dip or playing ball games in the evenings. We loved the roof-top terrace which overlooked the lagoon and also made great use of the bar-b-que.

The location is stunning and from our bedroom window we could look out over the lagoon to Foz and enjoy the rising sun in the mornings. The two nearby restaurant/bars were friendly and served very reasonable food.

We visited nearby Obidos and really enjoyed this quaint village with its cobbled streets and market stalls – a must for all who rent the villa. A visit to other beaches although not necessary was also interesting and we found a safe surfing beach (although a little busy) called Baleal some 30 minutes away.

Patrick and Sheila, the owners were extremely helpful and went out of their way to ensure that we were thoroughly prepared for our holiday. All in all my wife and I agree that this was probably the best holiday that we have had to date.

This really is a lovely place to stay, great care has been taken by the owners to ensure that everything you would want is in the villa.

The layout of the villa is extremely versatile, it suits all ages from 0 to 100+. The photographs are good but it's even better when you are there. We were a group of 6 adults and we found the villa to be very spacious with the bonus of there being more than one balcony/terrace you could always find a quiet area.

There is a lovely enclosed garden which is very well maintained and where of course is a great swimming pool. From the villa there are stunning views of the sea and the beach is within easy walking distance. The beach area is massive and there is a lagoon which is great for families with small children.

The surrounding area is a non stop adventure, there is something for everyone whether it's just lazing round the pool, fantastic walks, paddle boarding on the lagoon and of course golf which was easily arranged and only about 20 - 30 minutes away depending on golf course.

We did hire a car which enabled us to go further afield and vist the many unspoilt villages and countryside, and of course restaurants. If you didn't want to hire a car there are still places to eat within walking distance and a small shop.

I would 100% recommend this villa, I cannot find anything negative, the owners are very helpful and were more than happy to assist with any question we put to them. Everything is in the villa that you will need from a sun hat to a basket of logs , all you need to do now is BOOK IT!

great stay in Bom Sucesso

  • 5 of 5

The house is really beautyful, we enjoyed the excellent facilities, especially the pool and the seat with the grill. The nice support from the owner and the housekeeper was realy helpful! Although the weather could have been better, there are a lot of opportunities to spend time (walking, golf resorts, sightseeing etc.) There is absolutely nothing to complain about from our end! Overall: a great time in Bom Sucesso

This fantastic 4 bed villa is situated in the old part of the Perola Da Lagoa village next to the exclusive contemporary Golf, Leisure & Design resort of Bom Sucesso (3km) and the well known Praia D'El Rey Golf & Beach Resort (5km). The villa is only 200m from the Obidos Lagoon & Atlantic Ocean. Close by there is a wide range of activities on offer from walking along the lagoon on the recently made wooden path or try your hand at wind-sailing, canoeing or even water skiing at the water-sports centre. The mouth of the river is where you will catch your dinner with the locals daily catching large dinner party sized Sea Bass, perfect for BBQ! Amenities include some lovely fish restaurants on the beach and a cafe and local shop.

Golf: There are 3 Championship Golf courses with 10 minutes drive. Praia Del Rey is one of the finest golf courses in Portugal if not Europe and has some stunning holes on the back 9 running alongside the Atlantic. Bom Sucesso is a modern inland course on the new Bom Sucesso Design Resort with some very picturesque holes with views of Obidos Lagoon and with 17 and 18, two of the most daunting closing holes you will play. Royal Obidos, a new course opened in 2012 was designed by Seve Ballesteros. This Championship course is beautifully landscaped on a hillside setting with views of the Atlantic Ocean. It pays to pre-book with each course directly or through a tee-times booking agency before you travel to get the best rates.
