Beautiful house close to the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay recently in Azhenas Do Mar. This house is situated in a great area, close to a lot of beautiful beaches and villages. We found the house had everything we needed. Rosa was really helpful with any questions we had. We really enjoyed sitting in front of the pool reading and enjoying the view of the pool and ocean in the background. The jacuzzi tub was a nice addition.

We just got back from our stay in this house with our 3 children (10y, 8y and 3y). The children liked the house (jacuzzi was a big hit!), but for us there were a few downfalls. The house is located next to a busy secondary road, which makes it very noisy. It is also dangerous to leave the house by foot as there is no pavement. At the time we were there there were buildingworks going on in the house opposit, which made it even noisier and impeded on our privacy because the workmen could look into the garden... We also had problems with the poolwater which wasn't right and which was creating a skinrash and eye irritation. The owner did respond quickly when we told her about it and several times someone came to check the water, but the problem (with the ph) remained. A real shame, because by the end of the holiday the children were to scared to go into the pool... So overall, the house itself is nice, but if you want a quiet week without noise this is not the right choice for you.

Owner's Response: Dear Mrs Tina, I would like to express our opinion about the facts that you announced which are the following: - Our region, Sintra-Colares, was surprised by a very high temperature, it was 33 - 38 degrees of temperature which is unusual in our region. This increase in temperature changed the waters of the pools, chlorine, pH, etc. After the intervention of the technical everything returned to normal. - Regarding the noise from a neighboring house, actually that house was recovered, it was a summer house of the portuguese royal families, very old, that become beautiful in the portuguese style. Actually took place recently the placement of the windows, which may have caused some noise. However, it was a one-off situation. - Concerning the way Azenhas do Mar - Praia das Maçãs, I must say that the Azenhas do Mar village is an old fishing village, has an ocean pool and over many decades has become a peaceful and inspiring holiday destination. As the antiquity of the village with its centuries-old houses of the portuguese royal families, the streets are narrow, including the route Azenhas do Mar - Praia das Maçãs, but beautiful with the Atlantic Oceon on the right side next to us. Quinta do Mar, recently recovered, with everything new, has an ideal location. In front of the sea, is situated 500 meters from the Azenhas do Mar beach and 5 minutes from Praia das Maçãs, which is also a fantastic beach with abundant water sports, excelent salt water pool, as well as many restaurants, coffee shops, bars, handicraft, and so on. The region offers a typical tramline that connects Praia das Maçãs-Sintra, all day and all summer. I'm sorry you did not like our area. Greetings, Rosa

Lovely Villa - fantastic holiday.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this lovely Villas for two weeks in August. We found it absolutely wonderful in nearly every way. The Villa itself, isn't very old and everything inside and out is in perfect condition. We found it very clean and is complete with everything that you might need. The kitchen is very well equipped and the TV and surround system are new and to a good standard. The villa really is a "home from home" and is more comfortable than many I have stayed in over the years. In terms of location, it is almost perfect albeit for children and the elderly it is a good 10-15 minutes walk from the beach - I think that it is not ideal terrain for a pushchair. However I managed to walk into Praia Das Macas every morning for a newspaper and a coffee.

The pool is fantastic for children with a ledge almost all of the way around and it was cleaned at least once during our stay. The only minor negative is that this Villa is not entirely private in as much as that the owners live within the grounds in their own house. We didn't find this a problem as they were not intrusive and kept them selves to them them selves, however I do feel that the price of this Villa does not represent the fact that you do not have total privacy - didn't affect us but you should be aware.

Rosa was very nice and friendly always trying to ensure that our holiday was perfect.

In summary I have rented at least four Villas around this location and this was by far the best !

This property was great - really superbly equipped and appointed with privacy of a great pool. Hosts could not have been more helpful. We are a family including 3 children and our expectations were exceeded. Location requires a car but assuming that, we highly recommend this property.

Sehr schönes Haus, toller Pool

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren Ende Oktober im "Quinta do mar" und es war ein sehr schöner Aufenthalt dort. Das Haus ist hervorragend ausgestattet und eingerichtet, es fehlt wirklich nichts. Die Terrasse, der Garten und der Pool sind super schön, wir haben uns hier sehr gerne, oft den ganzen Vormittag dort aufgehalten und sind auch abends gerne wieder "heim gekommen". Manchmal hat die angrenzende Straße ein wenig gestört, das wäre aber kein Grund, nicht wieder dort hinzufahren. Wir leben zu Hause ohne Straßengeräusche und sind daher sicher verwöhnt. Die nähere Umgebung des Hauses bietet alles, was man braucht (Gaststätten, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, etc.) und das Meer ist so nah, dass man es häufig auf der Terrasse rauschen hört. Die Strände und kleinen Buchten in der Nähe haben uns auch sehr gut gefallen. Die Vermieterin des Hauses war zur Schlüsselübergabe vor Ort, ist super nett und jederzeit telefonisch erreichbar. Wirklich eine sehr schöne Location!
