The house looked great
The room sizes were nice
Each room was accompanied with a bathroom
The kitchen was well equip with utensils
Communication with the owner was good
WiFi was non-existent
Swimming Pool was extremely dirty
Little to no hot water
Did not meet the owner face to face (We were shown around by someone with very limited knowledge of English)
Severe lack of bins in the house
Too many flies inside the house no matter how clean the place was kept
Jacuzzi Bath did not work
There was nothing to do in the local area (Everything took at least 4 miles to get to)
Was not shown everything in the house (Had to figure most things out)
The heating never came on
1. Have someone who speaks a little English do the initial tour
2. Have a hand book for visitors detailing any enquiries that might arise eg where the heating can be controlled, how to operate the pool controls, where to find a good local taxi service, where to or not to eat in the local area, the location of the activities mentioned in the advert
3. Electric fly killers throughout the house but definitely in the kitchen
4. A reliable wifi system
5. Cleaning supplies - There were hardly any and we had to buy our own toilet roll and air fresheners
We had a very great stay in Esposende.
The house and the garden are very nice. Everything is very tended: The garden is well invested and the pool is very clean, too. It was cleaned by the poolboys a several times due our stay.
I guess I don’t have to write anything about the BBQ-area: The pictures may speak for themselves.
The rooms are clean and big. Also to distinguish is, that every single room has its own bathroom. In addition, there is a toilet on the ground floor.
You can find shops and restaurants in close quarters and it is only a 15min walk to the beach.
Special thanks to Mike, the hirer. He is very, very nice and helpful- he’s a good example fort he Portuguese hospitality.
We will surely come back again!
We were staying with a group of 10 persons for 5 days in the villa. The size of the house is impressive and quite sufficient for 10 people. Just the 6 bathrooms are already a dream. The rooms are large and beautiful, especially the attic room is crazy. The large garden and beautiful roof terrace invite you to leisurely relax in the open. Just the kitchen is angled a bit, but equipped. The home ownership is so nice and always helpful.
We stayed for a couple of days by 2011's New Year's Eve, and must say we really loved it! The house is well located, close to the N13 road in a very quite area, and has plenty of space for big families and groups.
We were pleased that all rooms had their own bathrooms, everything was very clean, and all equipment was in good condition. It had everything you could want, from central heating to Internet access and cable TV.
And of course, must state that the owner is very friendly and attentive.
Highly recommended to stay and relax for some days.
