Why Pedro Vieira chose Portinho da Arrábida

Casa Sul Mar was built for my grand mother in 1950 by the famous portuguese designer Eduardo Anahory. The house has always been used as a family holiday and week end hide out, being rented at times when we spent holidays elsewhere. My grand mother passed away in 2010, and I inherited the house from my mother and started a complete renovation maintaining the full original traits of the house but giving it all the confort and amnities of a modern house. Today you can be at Casa Sul Mar as confortable during the hot Arrábida summer as well as during the winter time. The house coupled with the mystic environment of Serra da Arrábida with its unique ocean view and luxuriant vegetation, make this spot my favorite place in the world.

Best view ever, close to beach and sightseeing

  • 5 of 5

Very nice owner, excellent contact in advance. The house is locatet in a private way, the main road is a bit away.

The house description was really accurate, it was clean an well-maintened. Wonderfull view (ships, dolphins, sunrise ...)nice garden, two terraces (sun from sunrise till afternoon) and pool (owner's garden), which was small but very practical (we loved it). About 100 m away, it descends a staircase to the small beach (to swim or to snorkel in the protected bay. The other (also very popular) beaches are not far away (20 minutes by foot, half an hour by car) in Serra Arrabida oder the "Open Ocean" by meca.

It is a very good house in a popular region, sightseeing, swimming.. including. We highly recommand Casa sul Mar and we say OBRIGADO to Raquel and Pedro.

Gigantische Aussicht in äußerst beliebter Region

  • 5 of 5

Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter war im Vorfeld ganz hervorragend. Wir haben uns bestens "betreut" gefühlt (Kontakt, Tipps, Schnorchelausrüstung...).

Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, wobei das Wohn-Esszimmer der zentrale Raum mit großer Fensterfront zur herrlichen Terrasse ist. Man hat einen tollen Ausblick auf Schiffe (Setubalhafen) und manchmal sogar Delfine. Das ist auf jeden Fall ein Highlight! Die Küche ist bestens ausgestattet, wir haben nichts vermisst. Es gibt zwei WC (eines von außen zugänglich) und ein kleines, schönes Bad (war für uns Zwei ganz wunderbar ausreichend). Die Schlafräume sind recht klein, die Matratzen waren uns zu hart und zu dünn (ist aber Geschmackssache!). Nachts ist es (bis auf ein paar Hunde) angenehm ruhig.

Der Pool ist klasse (klein aber fein) und wir haben ihn wirklich gerne genutzt! Der kleine Strand unterhalb des Hauses bietet allerbeste Schnorchelmöglichkeiten, man kann im glasklarem Wasser sehr schön schwimmen oder auf dem Surfboard paddeln. Allerdings ist der Strand auch sehr gut besucht, wie viele Strände an der Serra Arrabida. Die Strände am offenen Atlantik (bei Meca) sind weiter, aber auch windig und haben ganz ordentliche Wellen (überwacht).

Viele interessante Ausflugsziele (Evora, Marvao, Alcacer, Troia (im südlichen Bereich), Lissabon, Setubal, Sessimbra...) sind in max 2 Std bestens zu erreichen.

Ein wunderbares Haus in bester, sehr beliebter Lage mit guten Ausflugsmöglichkeiten und äußerst netten Vermietern.

Wonderful holiday in an exceptionally beautiful part of the Portuguese coast

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Sul Mar. The Arrabida is a beautiful coast and the view from the terrace is absolutely stunning. We were with 4 adults (mother, daughter + partner and son) and the house was perfectly suitable for that. However, I can imagine that with more guests, it might get a little cramped. The bedrooms are fairly small and there is only one bathroom - which I believe would never be enough for 8 people (queuing for the shower on holiday). My advice to Pedro would be to add an extra (outdoor) shower.

We had some small troubles in the two weeks that we were there (a slow wifi, no hot water) but Pedro was there to solve things right away.

The kitchen is well-equipped and the spacious lay-out of the living room, opening up to the terrace, make it a very comfortable and nice place to stay. Furthermore the interior design and its details are very well chosen, making it a homely and warm. Overall a very nice place to spend some time on the Portugese coast and to make you instantly feel at home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. Please allow me to answer to your concerns. We are always careful to say the house is suitable for 6 adults and 2 children as one of the bedrooms only has a children bunk bed and as you were only 4 adults we did not pose this issue. Unfortunatly you only told us about the hot water on the day you left and that was an easy thing to fix as it was fixed in 5 minutes after you told us about it. As to the internet it has peaks but this is an issue with the whole area due to the mountain right behind the house and unfortunatly there is other internet service provider to the area. IT was a pleasure hosting you and your family and we are glad that despite the minor issues you have found we will be able to host you again next year. Obrigado and see you next July.

Little heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

An amazing experience from the start! Pedro and his wife Raquel made us feel at home from the moment we got to Casa Sul Mar! They greeted us with a beautiful bottle of wine, and handmade local cheese. Provided us with information on the area, restaurants, beaches, local wineries, cheese shops ... the list goes on.

We are truly grateful to them for allowing us to see this Little heaven of theirs:)

The house is fabulous, much nicer in real life.

Thank you so much for everything! May we meet again very soon!!!
