About The Owner

We are a family of 5, recently moved back to Ireland, after having lived in the U.S. for over 20 years. Villa Do Mar has been our "home from home" in Europe and we have enjoyed spending every summer, Christmas and Easter there for the last 10 years. We purchased the villa and then spent a year fully-renovating it and choosing only the best materials, appliances etc. Now that we are based in Europe, we want to explore other parts of Europe so are renting our villa.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2006

Why The Owner chose Praia D'el Rey

Villa Do Mar, is a special place with the best views in this private resort! Praia Del Rey is a very safe resort with everything one could want from the award winning golf course, to 2 kids clubs, tennis club, the Marriott Hotel, steps away as well as the beach. The surrounding area is very beautiful and un-spoilt. The Portuguese people are wonderful as is the food!

What makes this villa unique

When this property came up for sale, we couldn't believe it! It has the best views on the resort with 1.5 acres of land. (Now, one can't build this close to the ocean anywhere in Europe!) It is a large villa with 5 bedrooms, and with plenty of indoor/outside space, more than enough room for everyone! The views are what sold us on the villa. After buying it, we embarked on a 1-year extensive renovation, literally down to the bare walls! Everything was re-done to a very high standard. We brought most of our furniture from America, including the mattresses, most of which are memory foam. As well as searching for antiques over the years, we now have the "house of our dreams"! Hope you enjoy it as much as we have over the years!

Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

Villa Do Mar is everything you could want in a villa holiday - 5* accommodation, right on the ocean front, a beautiful pale sandy beach and amazing views of the Silver Coast.

We (two families) combined our stay with a short break in Lisbon (well worth doing), hiring cars for the duration of our holiday. The journey to the villa was very straight forward and on arrival was afforded the "wow" factor.

The house is very spacious with large pool, games room and outdoor garden area which was enjoyed by all. Inside was very clean, comfortable and tastefully furnished.

A car is essential for grocery shopping, sightseeing, eating out. We would recommend a trip to Obidos and the Lagoon area (Lagos de Obidos) which is beautiful.

The house manual is exhaustive and just one example of the excellent customer service offered by Suzanne and Karl. Nothing was too much trouble for them from start to finish. They went out of their way to make sure our holiday was 'perfect'.

We had a fabulous holiday and hope to return in the not too distant future.

Great house, great memories. Thank you.

Fantastic villa, with superb views

  • 4 of 5

We have just arrived back from a two week break, the villa is amazing with plenty of land surrounding it. The pool was a big hit with everyone and the boys loved the games room. We couldn't get the TV to work in the games room or one of the double bedrooms. We had read previous comment that the pool was cold, but I have to say we found the temperature was perfect. I would highly recommend the villa to groups or large families and I would definitely return.

Music Video location

  • 4 of 5

Great place, as described. Easy to find and self drive journey from Lisbon airport was simple. Barbq's every night, supermarkets aren't far away.

Family spent most of the time in and around the pool or playing table tennis.

Plenty of space to spread out, Marriott is very handy for golf and a grown-ups cocktail night out!

Fabulous for a relaxing holiday with a big group

  • 4 of 5

Our party consisted of 5 families - 5 Mums with 7 children (aged 5 - 10) and we had a wonderful holiday here. The villa and grounds are spacious and we loved the different zones where people gravitated to depending on what they wanted to do; we were never on top of each other. The expanse of garden was fantastic for the 7 children.

It is isolated, you do really need a car. We knew this and had planned for this which involved a trip to Obidos to the supermarket for a MAMMOTH shop. The local small shop is 3km walk away up the hill (you can pay 5 Euros to catch the Marriot shuttle bus back or walk the 2k across the beach.) We ate out at the Marriott club house a couple of times which was good for the kids.

Note that the villa sleeps 10 people, it could do with a sofa bed in the study off the master bedroom; we had to improvise a bed with sofa cushions and use the small sofa there. There is a chalet in the garden which sleeps 2 which would be ok for teenagers for a week but not appropriate for younger children or adults.

The kitchen was very well equipped with high quality implements/crockery etc - one point to note is that there isn't seating for everyone to have dinner together - it didn't bother us (kids in one room - us on the terrace!) but it might be an issue for others. We went in early July and the pool was cold (it's windy by the Atlantic). You can pay to heat the pool - if we were to return we'd pay for that.

The fire-pit was awesome - I suggest that if people want to have a fire pit they do 2 things: 1. scour the beach for driftwood - we did and got lots (we couldn't find the logs in the supermarket) and 2. remove your wood during the day as the sprinkler system comes on at random times and it soaks the wood. The kids totally loved running through the sprinklers.

There's no built in air conditioning - we didn't need it when we went - it is breezy and you can open the french doors downstairs and keep the shutters across to get the breeze. The portable a/c units were not very effective.

I miss the crash of the waves and that view now that I'm home. I'd love to go back - with a car next time to explore some more and eat in more traditional Portuguese places. So all in all a relaxing and refreshing holiday - 4 stars rather than 5 because of the sleeping arrangements/isolated location/cold pool.

Owner's Response: Dear Joanna, Thank you for your detailed review stating it was "fabulous for a relaxing holiday with a big group" and we were delighted to hear that you would like to come back! With that being said, we were a bit surprised to find you had given us a 4-star rating! The sleeping arrangements are clearly stated on the website on the very front page: Luxury villa, cliff top, panoramic ocean views, sleeps 10, guest house sleeps 2. The pool is not heated, which is stated on the website and putting the solar panel cover on every night ensures that the pool stays at a comfortable level. Isolated spot...we are on the Atlantic Ocean with the views! With the fabulous technology today, one can see exactly where we are located so it should come as no surprise! The hotel is next door, the beach is steps away and there is a shop. As this is a golf resort it is not located in a town/village so a car is highly recommended. As you stated, "you knew this and had planned for this", yet you didn't rent a car. The fire pit is a wonderful spot and had you read the Guest Manual, which I emailed you in advance (and there is a hard copy in the villa), on page 14 it tells you where you can buy the easy logs to light the fire pit. And as for the a/c units, they are actually dehumidifiers. There is no a/c as we state on the website due to the close proximity to the ocean and the temperature dropping during the evenings.

Fantastic Views

  • 5 of 5

We had a guys surf/kitesurf trip to Portugal and we stayed at this wonderful house. Great house, great views, great times. We did not see a lot of the traditional tourist sights (besides the surf), but it was still a great trip with seriously fun waves. We did travel to Nazare one day to witness some of the biggest surf ever ridden, which was stunning to see in person. Every meal we had in Portugal was delicious and very reasonably priced. We spent lots of time in Baleal and I would highly recommend the beaches there. We surfed out in front of the house also, but some days it was just too big (Hurricane Nicole swell), so we retreated to more protected breaks around Baleal. We also visited Obidos castle and the surrounding small enclosed fortress town, which we would highly recommend. This was the first time, but I firmly believe that it will not be the last time that we will rent this house. The location just cannot be beat and we cannot wait to return again soon. Great memories are built in houses like this.

Super villa in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday in this stunning villa was wonderful. The house was very clean and comfortable and we had so much space both inside and outside the villa. The views over the ocean were amazing and we loved watching the beautiful sunsets each evening. The games room was a big bonus for our children and the swimming pool was great.The owners were very helpful and provided a very good customer service. If you want to stay at the Praia del Rey resort then I would highly recommend staying in this villa - the villa itself was lovely and the location was perfect.
