Townhouse in Praia Del Rey. Nr. Obidos, Silver Coast, Portugal - Spectacular Front Line Beach And Ocean Views, Equipped To The Highest Standards.1 Min Walk to Beach
About Siobhan Jones
Hello! We are Clive & Siobhan Jones, based in Holmfirth West Yorkshire. Together with our three children, we enjoyed many holidays in Portugal prior to buying our townhouse in Praia Del Rey. Our only disappointment is the lack of time we get to spend there!
Siobhan Jones purchased this House in 2008
Why Siobhan Jones chose Amoreira
We were attracted to Praia Del Rey by the relatively unspoiled area. It's less touristy than the Algarve & is home to the most friendly of Portuguese people. There are many typical little Portuguese villages close by, with a range of festivals & galas. The most famous one being the medieval town of Obidos which is certainly worth a trip. In July they have a Medieval Festival, August Opera, & in March, a Chocolate Festival! Praia Del Rey was our first holiday with children, when we actually came home feeling refreshed! Despite being a 5* resort, everything is very relaxed & casual.
What makes this House unique
We consider our location to be the best in the resort with unbeatable Ocean & Golf views, the Beach Village on our doorstep, & so many activities on offer. If you prefer to simply relax & take in the view you couldn't be better placed. We have equipped our home to offer guests a truly relaxing home from home experience. We spent several years searching for the perfect holiday home & we really think we found it!

Stunning location and beautiful house!
We absolutely loved our stay at Praia Del Rey. The house has simply breathtaking views - it was so peaceful to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and just watch the waves roll in. Everything in the house was turned out to an impeccably high standard and we wanted for nothing! Thank you so much for a blissful holiday!
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday!
Perfect ocean getaway
With Portugal as popular and busy as it is, the location of this townhouse provided a peaceful escape. The property is exactly as described - very spacious, comfortable, and well equipped. As it sits closest to the sea, one is scarcely aware of the other residences surrounding.
We were well positioned for day trips to Peniche, Obidos, Nazare and beyond. But it was always a delight to return to the sound, sight and naturalness of the sea.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay & hope that you can visit again.
Great rental with very good facilities.
Thank you for your review; it is much appreciated. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay.
Fantastic location and beautiful house.
The house is a well proportioned and luxurious two bedroom home with the living rooms upstairs. Everything in the house is top quality and well designed. The views of the beach and the setting sun from the large terrace are breathtaking. Good swimming pools and local amenities but you will need a car to get to bigger shops and busier tourist areas. Obidos, Peniche and Caldas da Rainha are all well worth visiting. That is if you can drag yourself away from the beach and pool!
We are a family of six and used the very comfy sofa bed to accommodate our smallest children. We were certainly more than comfortable as there is loads of room. A fab property.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay & look forward to welcoming you back to Praia Del Rey in the future.
Location, location, location -- you can't beat the ocean view and easy access to the beach!
This is the place you want to stay if you want an unobstructed view of the ocean and easy access to the beach. My college-age girls sat on the patio all day reading and relaxing even though we had a cloudy stay. Beachfront restaurant not open and pool too cool to swim in with the cloudy days. The villa is very well appointed, however, our biggest disappointment was to find the advertised king-sized bed in the master bedroom was simply a double. Only 3 large wine glasses, missing instructions on how to turn on the heat, had to search for the owner's book on the villa, missing instructions on what to do at check-out, eg. where to leave the key, etc. Despite these downsides -- waking up to the sound of the ocean every day -- I would still recommend a stay here! Marriott Hotel concierge very helpful when planning day trips.
Thank you for your review, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay & appreciated the beautiful ocean views.
We can confirm that the beach village restaurant is now open; your stay was earlier in the season, but hopefully you enjoyed the other restaurants in the resort.
Our stock of water glasses (or large wine glasses) has now been replenished. I trust that you found that there was a sufficient amount of standard sized wine glasses.
House-keeping have been advised to leave the information book in a more prominent place for future guests.
The heating is pre-programmed to come on if the temperature falls below 20 degrees Celsius.
The key drop box outside the door is for collection & depositing the key. Apologies if it was not clear that this is where keys should be left on departure.
We are pleased that our property manager was on hand to handle your enquiries.
We can confirm that the bed in the master bedroom is King Size (6 inches wider than a double bed). North American terms for bed sizes differ from UK/European.
Breathtaking view/sounds of waves.
Wonderful stay !The pool was clean and not too cold. Ocean was too rough to swim in but we enjoyed the sounds of the waves crashing at night.
Place was very clean and quiet. Large rooms and lots of space in the living room/dining room . The deck was a good size and the deck furniture very comfortable. View was spectacular !! It is a view you will never get tired of. Sunsets were amazing!
The location is close to the charming town of Obidos where we enjoyed walking the streets and listening to live music played at the gateway to the town and at the castle. It was nice to be able to see the artisan wares in the shops and to enjoy a light lunch. To save on money I would suggest bringing a picnic and eating in the garden off to the north, closer to the castle, off one of the side streets. .
A great place to escape for peace and quiet. Thank-you.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay & hope that we can welcome you back soon.
