As a sporting family of four, with busy every day lives, we wanted something that was more than a home-from-home.
We instantly fell in love with the resort, the surrounding area and above all the climate is wonderful.
The resort has a range of children's activities for all ages. With fantastic surfing beaches and 3 gorgeous swimming pools to choose from, all perfectly positioned from our house, you will not want to leave!
There are many sporting activities to choose from. From cycling, paddle boarding, surfing , body boarding, canoeing, golf, tennis and football you really will be spoilt for choice..
Debbie O'Brien purchased this house in 2007
We have endeavoured to create something special in a truly remarkable location which like minded people will enjoy.
This modern townhouse is located centrally and within walking distance of Praia del Rey's perfect blend of un-spoilt beaches.
Whether you enjoy active beach sports such as surfing, tennis, golf, family time in the security of peaceful gardens, or maybe just a bit of me-time, being pampered in the 5* Marriott Hotel.
Well this location has this and more!
The beaches here offer a true paradise with some being almost deserted. The difficult part is choosing which beach to visit.
If you are adventurous and like to explore, you will be surprised at the peace and beauty of Praia del Rey's beach, the perfect waves that can be found at the Super Tubos in Peniche, the tranquility of Sao Martinho do Porto or the simple natural beauty of Baleal beach.You really are spoilt for choice!
However it is at the end of each day when the silver shimmer on the ocean's horizon that shows off the Atlantic at its best and most beautiful.
This well proportioned townhouse has all the features for a great family holiday experience.
It has been furnished to reflect the standards of a 5* resort; elegant rooms, first floor and garden terrace dining, spacious gardens, with three private heated swimming pools. It's no wonder we loved it, from the first time we saw it.
Few resorts are more perfectly situated than Praia del Rey. Still within easy reach of the capitol Lisbon, this 230 hectare estate overlooks the wide Atlantic ocean and has magnificent views, making it one of the most desirable locations in Portugal.
Such beautiful surroundings also offer a host of activities; nature trails, horse riding, mountain biking and hiking are all on offer. Surf trips, sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving, jet-skiing, game fishing and many other water sports are all available from the resort or in the nearby Obidos lagoon.
Or why not simply leave your stresses behind, relax and enjoy your holiday with a wonderful glass of local wine in the beautiful surroundings of Vila dos Principes.
We have returned, rested and tanned (some more than others) back to a cooler, darker UK.
Debbie, we both have to say from the moment we opened the door the WOW factor hit us. It has taken a while to find a holiday accommodation that we truly felt was home from home and everything was perfect.
Pools on site were great, clean and relaxed, plenty to do within the area.
Weather was brilliant the only downside was that the 10 days went too quick.
We had a wonderful time in Lisbon, Obidos and Sintra but the best day trip was a boat ride from Peniche to the island of Berlengas.
The crossing took 25 minutes and we added a guide and cave tour to the excursion. The island had a small beach cove and it was idyllic. Beautiful clear water, gave wonderful views of many shoals of fish through a glass bottomed boat.
Although the sea was cold at first, many visitors took the opportunity to snorkel and swim in the bay.
A perfect day trip.
Thanks again, you have a wonderful home in Portugal

The villa was excellent, everything was of high quality and comfortable and the décor very soothing. Despite having unusually heavy rain - courtesy of hurricane Gonzalo - we did not need heating and did not use the log burner, although in colder weather it would make the lounge/diner very cosy and Debbie provides sufficient logs to get you going. In the 'off' season the estate the villa is on is very quiet, although the golf course and club house on the resort always were very active and if there for a longer time they seemed to offer activities such as yoga courses. The beach at the resort is fantastic and we enjoyed several walks there and watching surfers riding the waves was thrilling. We chose this villa because we like a bit of space and the flats viewed on-line all looked a bit cramped. The villa offered great indoor and outdoor space and I would imagine in summer with children would be just the ticket having good pools in secure surroundings. For the likes of us - older couples without children out of season - its position mid-way along the Silver Coast - was the attraction, allowing us to drive both north and south to access the historical sites we were interested in. There are 3 UNESCO world heritage sites in driving distance - though two of them at Tomar and Batalha are longish drives around one and half hours but can be done together on one day if you get off early. The other Alcobaca is about an hour away.The town of Mafra has an interesting old palace to visit and is not far from the wonderful fairytale site of Sintra. Cascais/Estoril are more cosmopolitan seaside resorts - a longish drive again but still accessible as a day trip from the villa. Debbie's recommendations on trips and things to do are excellent. We followed a lot of her recommendations and found her directions and advice very helpful. All in all a first rate experience.
Our family of 4 stayed for 5 nights and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The listing is exactly as you will find, with a very well-maintained and furnished unit. Everything (and more) was available and made it easy to 'entertain' our young children while at the same time feeling secure about letting them play outside in the patio and garden area as we ran around sorting things out for the many day trips we took or just putting together lunch or dinner for ourselves. Having a place in a gated community with a security guard is another added benefit and he was very helpful when we had questions as we went in and out.
The kids loved the pools as well as the local beaches. We got to see a great sunset one night just below the Marriott hotel and we were the only ones on the beach. A trip to the Obidos lagoon was also a welcome treat for them at low tide to be able to jump in puddles, play in the sand and search for shells. We also spent time at the Baleal beaches which again were perfect for them.
We also made trips to the town of Obidos, Sintra/Cascais as well as the limestone caves at Mira de Aire - trips that we all enjoyed. The location was perfect for trips that were just short enough for everyone to be happy and/or could be used for quick power naps as we raced to get back to the pools/beach in the afternoons.
My only 'regret' is that I didn't get a chance to get a round of golf in due to all the other activities - so I suppose that will have to be left to next time we visit ;) We have relatives in the area and could have stayed with them but decided we wanted our own family time and we're definitely glad we made the decision to rent from Debbie. She was very thorough and thoughtful about making sure we were going to enjoy our stay and we most certainly did. We will certainly be recommending Debbie's place to others.
Myself, husband and 15 year old son stayed here for 5 nights and had a fantastic time .The house is stunning ,definitely 5 star accommodation ,spotlessly clean and is very well equipped with everything you could possibly want and need. .The master bedroom leads onto a gorgeous upper terraced area which is a real sun trap,perfect to sit and relax and catch the last few hours of sun.There is a huge master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a smaller shower room and toilet downstairs .The large downstairs patio area was perfect for our 'chilled out ' evening BBQs .The kitchen is well equipped (better than my own at home !) Debbie has thought of everything ,from board games,bodyboards ,Dvds,the list is endless and not forgetting her book of recommendations which we affectionately renamed 'The Bible.' Everything you need to know is in the book . Restaurants , trips out , beaches ,Golf courses ,supermarkets,local butchers to name but a few .We ate in a few of the restaurants that Debbie recommended and they were all excellent .I even emailed Debbie a question whilst we were there and she quickly replied with an answer . Olga, the property manager also popped by to check that everything was as we expected and was happy to answer my questions about the local history .I would highly recommend a trip to the beautiful town of Obidos , a labyrinth of cobblestoned streets and try the Ginjinha -cherry liquor served in edible chocolate cups - a real treat .The club house is a 2 min walk from the house and the beach 10 mins .I regularly ran to the beach and back early mornings and felt very safe in doing so .We were lucky enough to be there at the same time as the portuguese football team were training for the world cup .The players roamed around the Marriott hotel and were happy to sign autographs and say hello.
This is a very friendly and peaceful resort .
My husband and Son played golf here and at the Royal Obidos which is about 10 mins away by car .The food in the club house is excellent . Excellent customer service from Debbie from start to finish .We left feeling very relaxed but sad to leave such an amazing place .We will be back .
Very nice place to stay, all the family really enjoyed it!
Welcoming house, we were feeling at home. Easy access to the pools, the club house and golf course. 10 minutes walking distance from the beaches.
Debbie is really friendly and helpful, Olga as well.
We would definitely come back for summer holidays.
The accommodation was of a very high standard and we were wanting for nothing especially regarding kitchen equipment etc.
Your info booklet was really informative and useful. We dined at one of the recommended restaurants - the one in Ferrel which was excellent. Tasty, very reasonably priced food was a hit with the whole family.
The baby cot was great and Olga gave us a very cute blanket to use which was a nice touch. The welcome food pack was also useful and appreciated.
Our older children (aged 7 and 5) had great fun in the pools and on the beach at Baleal.
On the whole a wonderful place for a Family holiday!
Very many thanks for the rental experience.
We spent a wonderful time at the prai del rey. The beach is unique and the waves really impressive. Our son (8 years) received even a signature and a photo of Cristiano Ronaldo, who has prepared himself there on one match.
The house is in the quiet part of the resort complex. It leaves nothing to be desired and we felt very comfortable.
The award winning Praia del Rey is ranked Portugal's No.1, 18 hole championship golf course (Peugeot) and is ranked 13th in Europe by Golf World. Set amongst extensive pine forests and undulating dunes, with spectacular views over the Atlantic and the Berlenga islands beyond, Praia del Rey is arguably the most picturesque golf course in Europe.
It boasts a 5* Marriott Hotel, which has a state of the art spa and gym complex, children’s play ground and an array of options for dining, whether it be casual dining by the pool or in the beautiful 'Romy' restaurant which offers fine dining. In the evening relax with a glass of your favourite drink and watch the sun set. It really is the perfect end to the day!
The Vila dos Principes condominium is the only gated condominium within the resort. There are 3 heated swimming pools to use (heated Mid April - Mid October please enquire if specifics to the temperature of the pool are required) and we are perfectly placed to enjoy all 3 pools.
The properties close proximity to the beach, tennis centre and golf club make it ideal for families and sport lovers.The Golf Clubhouse, Academy and 1st Tee are all within a two minute walk.
The Tennis Academy with 7 courts, is a short walk away. The long un-spoilt sandy beach - a 15 minute walk from the property - is ideal for more adventurous beach activities and hosts many international surfing events.
