About Janette Kay

We came to Sao Martinho with some friends who were buying a property. We fell in love with the place as it it reminded us of our other favourite place Cornwall, but in the sun.

We live in a small town called Ramsbottom that has fantastic walking but we love to holiday by the sea.

Janette Kay purchased this house in 2007

Why Janette Kay chose São Martinho do Porto

The house is comfortable and spacious with all amenities near by, there is no trouble parking in summer during the busy months. It is within walking distance of the beach, town and local amenities such as the supermarket and market. The market is great for fresh produce and fish at a really reasonable price, it is where the locals shop. There is a bread shop near the market as well as a chicken shop so you don't need to venture far for all your needs.

What makes this house unique

Quiet, spacious property with parking. It is perfectly situated out of the hustle and bustle of the busy town in the summer but still within walking distance.

Lovely, clean villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa was clean, roomy, with a well-equipped kitchen. The backyard was a nice place to relax and for my 3-year old grandson to play. The house was very close to a large supermarket. Although within walking distance to the beach, with a young child and stuff to carry, we opted to take the car instead. Anyone seeing this review should know to pack your own beach towels and beach blanket; other beach items are provided. The owner (Janette) and property manager (Alison) were very good at keeping the lines of communication open with me.

My only recommendation to the owner would be to provide portable fans in each bedroom. The second floor gets a bit stifling when the weather is hot.

Fantastic stay in Sao Martinho do Porto.

  • 5 of 5

The property was new and the rooms very big. It's a wonderful house in a lovely place very calm. It's 15 minutes walking from the beach but that it is not a big inconvenience. Sao Martinho is lovely and the people of the village very friendly.

Definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

The house was big and spotless and the 3 bathrooms meant we could all shower quickly. The wifi meant kids could play on iPads and the availability in ps4 is just great.Nearby market sells fresh bread,pastries and fruit and veg.

The location is fantastic,close to cafés and 10 min walk from the beach. Fabulous ice-cream shop nearby selling the most marvellous ice-creams/waffles/crepes.

The kids had to most amazing time at the beaches' inflatable play in the water.

Highly recommend staying there,the owners are most reliable and helpful.

Will most certainly stay there again!!

Thoroughly enjoy the stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for 12 nights, 2 adults and 2 young children. The house is spacious, furnished to a high standard will all the necessary appliances. The children particularly liked playing in the garden and also the fact we had several barbrques during our stay.

The location of the house is ideal within an easy walk to the centre of Sao Martinho for the beach, bars, shops and restaurants. Also, there are numerous places to visit within 30 mins drive of the house.

We would definitely recommend Sao Martinho and this house for a relaxing holiday, we are looking to go back next year.

Thanks Janette and Alan for allowing us to stay.

- a very nice house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house at the end of the season. It is spacious and well equipped and has everything you would need for a lovely holiday.

It is a short walk to the beach - which has something for everyone, the children especially loved it and we're kept busy all day.

In all a lovely place to stay - we hope to return to very soon.
