The property was well maintained but the location was very remote with no amenities close by.
The accommodation was clean and tidy, with sufficient bedding and towels for the guests visiting. These were not changed however over the 10 days we visited. The pool was advertised as being heated but the heating actually should be requested in advance, which we were not made aware of. There was also a cost implication for the heated pool which again, we were not made aware of this prior to our arrival. As a result some of our damage deposit was withheld as payment for the heated pool. I feel that this information should be made much clearer on the initial inventory for the property. This then enables guests to make a decision as to if they actually wish to pay for this facility or not!
In addition, the property is advertised as possibly sleeping upto 8 persons, yet there was only 4 sun loungers available, we were able to manage this as there was only 5 adults in our party, but had other members of our family been able to join us, this would have been difficult.
There was also a problem with all of the guests being bitten during the night- these bites were identified at the pharmacy as being from bed bugs. Although the property was clean, the property may benefit from the mattresses being sprayed to eradicate any potential bed bugs.
Overall although we enjoyed our holiday we feel this area/property did not suit the needs of our family. A CAR IS ESSENTIAL!
Thank you for your suggestions and review.
Changeover of linens and towels only occurs for 15 days stays or by specific request of the guests.
I must clarify that in my correspondence with you, when booking, you were clearly informed that, for the swimming pool to be heated, there was an extra cost and the ad also refers that explicitly!!!
To my surprise the heating system was turned on, without my knowledge and authorization, during your visit either by you or someone in your party, so I do believe it is my right to charge for that service, as it is advertised.
Also, the property offers 6 sun loungers, plus dinning table with another 6 chairs, more than enough for a party of 8. Nevertheless, I'll contact my management company to get more sun beds, so that future guests can enjoy the beautiful garden and pool area.
The bites are something completely new to me, the mattresses are cleaned every month with a power vacuum cleaner and put in the sun every 6 months.
However, when the final cleaning was done, we noticed several dead mosquitoes in the walls, so probably you were bitten by these, since it is very normal in that area to have mosquitoes around and they do bite, this is why I leave mosquitoes electric devices in every room...
The ad is also very clear about the location of the property and I also inform that car is essencial, so perhaps you did not study the map to best suit your family needs...
Excellent superbe villa
Villa moderne tout équipée /propre avec une piscine chauffée
Tolles Haus. Ruhiges Wohngebiet. Sehr gerne wieder
Klasse Abwicklung. Gebäude in einem guten Gesamtzustand. Gerne wieder.
Korkzieher fehlte und wurde prompt gebracht.
Rolige omgivelser og fantastisk natur.
Vi havde 2 dejlige uger i meget rolige omgivelser. Men vi kunne ikke bruge skabene i værelser og køkken da de lugtede meget af fugt/mug. Den lugt var også i store dele af huset.
Muy bien cuidada y la atención de Luis Santos perfecta.
Si quieres relajarte no dudes en alquilar esta casa... Muy tranquila y muy cerca de una playa completamente vacía... Únicamente hay que hacer la compra a unos 10 kms. Pero no hay muchos problemas de tráfico...
Muy buenas instalaciones pero carencia de detalles.
Casa hermosa y grande de nueva construcción, barbacoa, piscina climatizada, etc. Pero ni pinzas para mover la brasa, ni para la carne, ni un perchero en la casa.... Incómodo en ese sentido para habitar.
Algo alejado de lugares donde comer o tomar algo, 2.5km lo más cercano.
No hay tiendas ni supermercados cercanas, hay que ir en coche.
Entorno maravilloso pero falto de vida.
La casa bien.
Casa das Laranjeiras, number 40 at Pinhal Village, is about 5 minutes from the nearest point on the shore of Obidos Lagoon. We are close to the beaches of the lagoon and the bigger beaches and sometimes wilder sea on the west coast. Golf is at Bom Sucesso, Praia D'el Rey and Campo Real. Beaches and best surf is at Baleal and Peniche. There is a water sports centre near Foz do Arhelo which also has interesting bars, cafes and restaurants. Obidos, a beautiful ancient medieval hill town, and Porto Sao Martinho, a lovely seaside town, are within about 30 minutes drive. Each has a supermarket.
Golf: Nearest golf courses are at Bom Sucesso, Praia D'el Rey, and Campo Real.
