My name is Fernanda and I am a kindergarten teacher on retirement process.

I studied here in the area and only went away for the college education. I worked in several areas of Portugal but settled down here and bought a flat, first in Caldas da Rainha, and then this little house in Óbidos.

I used to love my job but got very ill and had to retire earlier.

Fernanda Nunes purchased this house in 2003

I purchased this house in 2003 and lived in it until 2011, when I married a neighbour and moved to his house in the same row of houses. We decided to live here, instead of purchasing elsewhere because we are charmed with this little corner, so close to everything we need and yet so quiet and in such beautiful environment.

In here we wake up with the sound of birds singing and you hardly believe you are 500 meters away from big coaches stoping by to let tourists out to visit the town, everyday.

From the porchway of the house where we can seat and enjoy a drink or a meal, while, if anyone passes by, they smile, greet you and move on, because they are neighbours, people who live here in the area.

From the ackside varanda there's a lovely view to one of the castle towers and the surrounding hills and garden.

LOVELY RESTFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in Obidos was memorable and the Obidos Town Home added to our experience. On our arrival we were greeted by Fernanda, the gracious personable owner who took us through the home to acquaint us with its amenities. The home is well equipped with everything required for preparing meals or relaxing in the large lounge. In addition, there is a patio and a courtyard available to enjoy the outdoors. It was a treat to have parking right outside the front door. A well stocked welcome package awaited us with items for making sandwiches. The house is a short walk from the walled medieval town and its attractions. We spent the 2nd day of our stay driving north along the coast as far as Nazare. The scenery is magnificent and the trip added to our enjoyment of the time there. I would highly recommend the Obidos Town Vacation Rental as a lovely place to stop and enjoy this area of Portugal.

EXCELLENT PROPERTY !

  • 5 of 5
Francais:

Obidos est une ville médievalle charmante, entourée de longues murailles, qui attire de trés nombreux touristes.
Dans la maison de Madame Nunez vous ne serez pas génés par le flux touristique, car elle est située dans un quartier calme, à un quart d’heure de marche du centre d’Obidos. Elle est comfortable avec tout l’équipement nécessaire. Madame Nunez vous accueillera chaleureusement et s’efforcera de rendre votre séjour agréable.
L’avantage de la location est que vous n’êtes pas obligés de disposer d’une voiture. En effet, il y a un super-marché à un quart d’heure de marche et d’Obidos vous pouvez prendre le train ou l’autobus pour Lisbonne, Porto, Coimbra ou beaucoup d’autres endroits à haute valeur culturelle et historique.
Trés bonnes possibilités de marche à pied. A cinq minutes de la maison, vous pourrez marcher pendant des heures parmis les vignes, les vergers (abricots, nectarines, pêches, etc...), les champs de fleurs sauvages. Avec toujours à l’horizon, pour ne pas se perdre, la longue muraille d’Obidos ....

Norsk, dansk, svensk

Obidos er en sjarmerende middelalderby, omkranset av store festningsmurer, som tiltrekker seg mange turister.
I huset til Fru Nunez, vil ikke turistmengden være forstyrrende siden det befinner seg i et rolig strøk, et kvarter å gå til Obidos sentrum. Huset er komfortabelt med alt nødvendig utstyr. Fru Nunez tar godt imot sine gjester og vil gjøre sitt beste for at de opplever en fin ferie.
Fordelen med å leie hus i Obidos, er at det er strengt tatt ikke nødvendig å disponere bil. Det finnes en matbutikk i gåavstand, og fra Obidos er det mulig å ta tog eller buss til Lisboa, Porto, Coimbra og andre historiske og kulturelle severdigheter. Det er også gode muligheter for å gå tur i naturen. Like ved huset, kan en gå i timesvis blant frukthager, vinranker og blomstrende åkrer. Med alltid i sikte, (for ikke gå seg vill), Obidos mektige festningsmurer …..

Owner's Response: It is a pleasure to welcome travellers and make them feel confortable and safe.

The location of the house serves different styles of holiday. It has a good location for golf, for beach holidays, to know several historic interesting towns, but also to relax and enjoy a quite neighbourhood.
The house itself is confortable, pleasant and equipped with all the things one needs at home.
As owner I try to make people welcome, and let them know that They will be assisted if necessary.

NICE HOUSE FOR TWO PEOPLE

  • 3 of 5
Fernanda is a very friendly and sympathetic person and she was very kind in picking us up from the bus station. The house is well maintained and cosy, with a bathtub and a nice veranda. We'd love to give this house 5 stars, because we really liked it, but unfortunately we found out that Fernanda is not completely correct with its description. When she showed us the house, I asked where the coffee machine is and she answered "Since I don't drink coffee, there is no coffee machine", but as of today, on the Portuguese page it's written that there is a "cafeteira electrica". The Portuguese page says also "grande cama de casal" (large double bed), which sounds like a king size bed, but in fact it's just a normal double bed (queen size - as stated on the English version of the page) and the mattress of this bed is not "firm" but pretty soft. As of today, she also advertises the house as "1 Quarto, Acomoda 3" ("1 Bedroom, Accommodates 3"). The third person must sleep on the sofa bed. When I opened it, I was shocked! I have slept many times on sofa beds (like the ones from Ikea) and they were very comfortable. Believe me, this one was just terrible. Its "mattress" is maybe only 5 cm thin. It's like sleeping right on the bedstead. On the next day I told her that I almost didn't sleep and Fernanda replied "Well, actually the house is advertised for only 2 people", which isn't true ("1 Bedroom, Sleeps 3").

So, for 2 people, despite the soft mattress on the double bed and the lack of a coffee machine, we'd still recommend this house. But, opposed to its description, with this unbelievably awful sofa "bed", it's definitely not suitable for 3 people.

Owner's Response: First of all i would like to say that i am terribly sorry that someone had such a bad time in my house, which I proudly advertise as confortable.
The second thing is the proximity of the owner, that I hope works as a plus for the guests, by assisting them without interfering.
The issues point out on this review are mainly:
The softness of the matress,
The size of the bed,
The lack of a coffee machine,
The unconfortableness of the sofa.
For future renters I must say: The matress is firm, but I suppose that it depends to what kind of matress one is used to sleep on. On the portuguese version says "firm, but adjustable to the body" literal translation. And it does say "large double bed" and i'm sorry I don't mean to sugest it's king size,
The bed is actually a double bed. They are standart size, I can't do anything about it.
The Cafeteira electrica, translated as "coffee machine" might be my mistake, i don't translate cafeteira electrica as coffee machine, but as a boiler. My mistake, but that's how we refer in portuguese to the instrument to boile water.
The guest was quite right about the sofa, though. It is a standart bed sofa, not a cheap one, purchased in a shop, but it is small and not very confortable for one adult. The guest complained that is legs were droping out. Quite right so. This sofa is meant for couples with one child, not exactly for adult people, because it is a single bed sofa and too short for tall people.
Dear future guests:
I can assure, however, that I would never answer to any of your questions in the way it is stated in this review. I pride myself in beeing polite, and I try to do anything to make people feel safe, at home, and confortable.
But everybody has the right to dislike my house. In this particular case I didn't charge the night they spent in my house, gave the guest his money back, and allowed him to stay as long as he wanted, while using the internet, cook lunch, and everything they needed or wanted to do until they were ready to be picked up by someone else to go to another place.
No hard feelings, shook hands, and wish them the best.
In spite of what is being sugested I am really interested in my guests confort and to provide them a very pleasant stay in any way I can.
And please bear in mind that english is not my first language. Some times I can misunderstand or not be accurate in the way I express ideas in english. But I would never be unpolite. That I can assure you.
The owner
