Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Richard & Annika,



from the speed and content of your first response to the detail given in your booking form and manual/directions, we knew we were in for a great holiday. nothing could prepare us however, for the spectacular property and views (not to mention the giant heated pool!) we encountered. the house has so much space and is full of modern equipment and very luxury you could imagine.



The area is quite spectacular with the beach being the highlight and to be honest the most spectacular we have ever seen! Obidos is like stepping back in time to an unspoilt medieval era!



thank you so much for all your help and advice on where to go, what to see and where & what to eat!



lovely, lovely lovely! :-)) (see you next year)

Casa dos Pinheiros is located in a small village overlooking stunning Obidos (which has good facilities) and the Lagoon on the Atlantic seafront. Situated on a hilltop, you can see for miles and we adored chilling out by the pool, taking in the views. There is an excellent restaurant within walking distance. The villa is modern, large and very well furnished. It was very clean and well maintained. The detailed handbook produced by the owners was extremely helpful. They also provide a good choice of books to read and good TV/DVD setup. The villa is easy to find and provides a perfect base for exploring this beautiful part of the country. Pegadas dos Dinossaurios, a bit further afield near Fatima, is well worth the visit: www.pegadasdedinossaurios.org

Lovely view, clean, comfortable and spacious villa suitable for families of all ages.

  • 5 of 5

When we first arrived at the villa, great first impression- the villa has a great view over the valley and hills right down to the ocean in the distance. Kids couldn't wait to jump into the pool and this continued to be a major highlight for them the whole week.

We made good use of the BBQ and sat round the outdoor table after dark drinking port and eating cheese until late in the evening which was most enjoyable. The local restaurant (within walking distance) coped well when our unbooked party of eight turned up- the food was delicious and on top of the traditional Portuguese fare, they have a pizza menu which extends way beyond anything you might get at back in our chain restaurants in the UK.

Pool was great, really nice to go somewhere where you have a pool all to yourselves. Children also loved picking plums in the orchard- driving around the area there are fruit growers everywhere and you see pears, lemons and peaches amongst other things.

Beach at Foz was superb, really clean and safe for kids (we went to the lagoon side which is ideal if you have younger children).

Obidos is fantastic and is literally a few minutes drive. Parking is abundant as this tiny town attracts visitors from far and wide because it is so picturesque. Loads of eateries and shops and plenty to photograph!

Villa is ideal for families with all age groups, we ranged from 3- 73 and it suited all. We contacted the owner by text when the gas bottle ran out and we couldn't open the cupboard to switch to the reserve- he had it sorted really quickly, no fuss, no drama whatsoever. Very helpful.

I would say we were all surprised by the negative review left a few weeks back by other visitors. We really couldn't see where they were coming from and felt they would be very hard pushed to justify their comments.

A fantastic villa in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely family holiday.We really enjoyed the pool. We spent a lot of time at the lagoon which was perfect for the kids while some of us went surfing in the Atlantic.Lots of cheap great places to eat especially the restaurant near the villa. We enjoyed walking around Obidos and found people very helpful and pleasant. The villa is well equipped but we did think that bedding and towels needed updating. We hope to come back again next year.

Great place, Great area

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by the house on arrival then the view from the rear of the property is truly breathtaking. the house is very well equipped and we wanted for nothing - the kids said "why can't we live in a house like this!" the BBQ area was fab as we had great weather and the respite from the sun was very welcome when eating.

The area is amazing with the sea,beach, lagoon and Obidos offering unspoilt beauty and history with great restaurants etc. the local restaurant O'Tracadinho (check spelling) was so nice with great food at great prices and we were royally looked after after mentioning where we were staying.

highly recommended and only point i would make is to perhaps have an additional travel cot.

Great time had by all!

Lovely country, disappointing, damp,dirty,mouldy v

  • 1 of 5

Embarrassingly oversold villa. We were all very excited after viewing pictures and reading the reviews. On our arrival we were greeted by mould in every room including on the sofa.Beds were damp and bedding and pillows were filthy. The jacuzzi bath did not work. Pool was missing tiles and not suitable for children at all.The villa was sadly in need of maintenance. Dreaded coming back daily as sleeping was almost impossible on damp mattresses. The previous reviews of 8 people staying there the week before us was hard to believe where did they sleep?? I have to give one star just for Obidos nice town,as for views of sea and lagoon binoculars might have helped. Orchard and fruit trees ? Sunbeds filthy with black mould,dirty barbeque need i go on. Would indeed like a refund ??

Owner's Response: Fear not! All is well and I cannot begin to explain why these people said such horrible things. My wife and I were devastated by this post. I have spoken to the guests and they can give no eveidinece or real explanation for their comments, other than asking for a refund! I asked why they did not contact the agent or call us if there was indeed some mould or damp bed linen – their response was “they didn’t need the stress” I then asked why he chose to sleep on damp bed sheets for 2 weeks – no reply was forthcoming We had just left the house before they arrived, so categorically know that it was in tip top condition. We had three guests in the house prior to us and they all left great reviews. We sent our agent straight up to the house to investigate and chat to our current guests and everything was fine and the guests were having a good time. The house does have some small areas of blistered paint and there are some tiles missing from the pool, but is nothing more than fair wear and tear. If I was to replace all the mini tiles that come adrift on our beautiful pool, I would spend most of the summer underwater! Finally, please be reassured that this is the first bad review we have had in 10 years of renting out or lovely house, when you read the current guest book and other reviews on line you will get the truth of the matter.
