    About this property

    In the Center of Cascais, the Favorite Vacation Site of Past Portuguese Kings

    Beautiful three bedroom apartment in the historic center of Cascais, 25 km from the capital city Lisbon, accommodating 5 adults or 4 adults with two small children. Three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 large living room with separate dining area, foyer and fully equipped kitchen with a washing machine. Two bedrooms have double beds each, third one has a sofa bed for a single person or two (small) children. Living room has cable TV with free programming, fire place, and a separate dining area. Also in there is a sofa that can be opened for another bed, should need arise. The spectacular Cascais beaches are just a stone throw away, so are the new marina and yacht club. Several museums, a concert hall, supermarket, mall with shops for any taste and desire all in close proximity too. The majestic Mareshal Carmona park with a castle and arboretum is almost around the corner and invites you to a quiet afternoon stroll during which your children can play away at the on-site playground. Follow your daily activities with a hearty dinner in restaurants, taverns, cafes or bars that abound close-by, in the center of Cascais, offering a great variety of Portuguese and international culinary delights. Portuguese wines gaining ground in the world market, some rival and even top the best French varietals. You could experience that with any of your dining. Staying in Cascais without a car should not be a problem. Everything is so close to the apartment that you can walk everywhere with no effort. If you have a longer tour it is in your mind, you can walk to the bus or train station or take a taxi to visit the capital city of Lisbon, the Casino in Estoril, the world famous town of Sintra with its monuments and curious micro climate or, the equally famous Guincho beach, a world-wide recognized surfer's paradise. All-in-all, you can look forward I'm going to have a great vacation.

    A really lovely apartment

    We really enjoyed our stay in Cascais. The apartment was clean and although it took us a while to find the plates in the cupboard beside the table it had everything we needed except maybe a kettle. When we arrived after a very long day Paula gave us a quick tour but she was unable to tell us where the nearest supermarket was. She suggested we go into town and ask there. I think a folder of useful information would help. For example we were looking for the bins and then discovered communal bins down the street. Overall it was a great base for our holiday.

    2/5

    Good location but lacking miscellaneous items.

    Location to the center town square was the best thing about this place. Bathrooms were clean and nice. Other than that,it was dirty and dusty. Desperately needed a fresh paint job. Towels & bed sheets were shabby. Cookware & glassware were questionable. Coffee pot filter was moldy having been left there from previous renters and never cleaned. However, brought to the attention of the host, it was replaced with a new one. Necessary items were not provided for: Toilet paper, paper towels, sugar, coffee etc. .

    5/5 Excellent

    Fantastic

    Great location only a few minutes walk from the heart of Cascais. Would thoroughly recommend it. It was so relaxing to spend time there in the evening after a busy hot day.

    Old and Cold

    The apartment had some charming and positive features. It was spotless and it was large with high ceilings. The location is not in the prime cobblestone street section of Cascais. In fact, it got a fair amount of traffic. But it was, by a hair, in the historic quarter. The building is fairly old. Some rooms, including baths were renovated, but the kitchen was “quaint” with appliances that had seen better days. The issues on balance outweighed the positives. So much so we left early despite having paid for the unused nights. We chose Cascais and the historic quarter because we wanted a peaceful location to recouperate from some recent stressful events. The next morning we were awakened by a loud banging vibration. When the noise didn’t stop by the afternoon we went upstairs to find the source. We soon realized it was coming from outside. To be specific it was a jack hammer being used to excavate through solid rock. All day, every day but Sunday from 8 am to around 6 pm. We consider nearby construction something that ought to be disclosed. Then there was the heat, more precisely the lack of heat. This fairly large, oddly configured unit’s sole heat capability was two plug in radiators, one of which was too small to heat the smallest space. This probably would not be a problem in late spring and summer. But in winter we needed layers and sweaters to be comfortable and could only shower in the afternoon after pre-heating the bathroom. Then the power went out in some places but not others. We texted and emailed our host, Maria Jose. No response. We realized there had to be a circuit box. It was pretty archaic but we figured it out and got the power back. Good thing because we didn’t hear back from Maria Jose until the next afternoon. She explained that she was with a very ill cousin in the hospital and apologized profusely for the delay and told us she had never rented the place in winter before. We told her we were sorry for her situation and now OK, but we were going to leave early because the noise and the apartment were just not acceptable. She said she would refund the unused nights rent. All we got was the security deposit. Things happen in life. But we believe strongly that if you chose to go into the business of renting you need a backup system. Maria Jose lives nearly two hours away. If a renter did something as simple as walk out the door without their keys they would be locked out with no solution. Not acceptable.

    5/5 Excellent
