Fabulous villa in a lovely location
We were 2 couples who stayed at this villa for 12 days and loved every minute. The home is clean, bright and spacious. The pool was perfect to cool off in and relax around after a day of sightseeing. The location was very private yet minutes from groceries and highway access and the best little restaurant with the best food ever! Owners were very responsive and really helpful. We would stay here again for sure! Highly recommend!

Fantastic villa in beautiful location
We had a great stay in the villa. The kids practically lived in the pool and the views from the deck are stunning. The villa itself is very well equipped and the lay out is perfect. We were 2 families (4 adults and 4 children) and we had plenty of space. We had one problem when we were there but after messaging Richard he responded in minutes and the management company came and got it all fixed 15 minutes after that! We were very impressed and appreciative of the the speedy response.
Óbidos is beautiful with lots of lovely restaurants and gift shops. The local restaurant served really good food and is definitely worth a visit. The beaches are beautiful and the lagoon is great for the kids with calm shallow water to play in.
Overall would definitely recommend and would love to go back.
Great time as always!
This was our 7th time at this wonderful villa and that says it all. We love this place. Great location, great food and a great swimming pool. Beaches are superb as well. Left a couple of inflatables for the next guests as well. Thanks to the Allens.
The pool was a good size for the kids to enjoy. The local restaurant is very good.
Richard was very helpful when booking. We had a number of queries when we were at the villa and Richard was very responsive. Villa is in a good location to visit the beach towns and local markets. We stayed for two weeks and the bed linen was not changed. Other villas I have rented the linen has been changed after the 1st week. The pool and bbq area was enjoyed by the whole family as were the plums we picked at the end of the garden. The local restaurant is a must very good food for adults and kids. Overall we really enjoyed staying at this villa.
Thank you for the review which was welcome. The linen can be changed at anytime for a small charge as listed in our information. We are sorry you felt you had to downgrade our rating as a result of this and we will endeavour to make this clearer for our future guests. We strive to make our guests feel very welcome and always provide help where we can. Early and late arrival were provided at no extra cost on this rental as an example. Never the less we always try to improve to make our guests stay even better.
