Why Pedro Vieira chose Portinho da Arrábida
Casa Sul Mar was built for my grand mother in 1950 by the famous portuguese designer Eduardo Anahory. The house has always been used as a family holiday and week end hide out, being rented at times when we spent holidays elsewhere. My grand mother passed away in 2010, and I inherited the house from my mother and started a complete renovation maintaining the full original traits of the house but giving it all the confort and amnities of a modern house. Today you can be at Casa Sul Mar as confortable during the hot Arrábida summer as well as during the winter time. The house coupled with the mystic environment of Serra da Arrábida with its unique ocean view and luxuriant vegetation, make this spot my favorite place in the world.

an amazing place to stay in an extraordinarily beautiful part of Portugal
This is a truly amazing property. It is set in the Arrabida National Park which is beautiful, and the view from the property of Setubal Bay is breathtaking. The owner of the property couldn't have been more helpful, with really useful advice about how to make the most of our two days there (even lending us his umbrella!!!). It was such a pity we didn't have more time as there is so much to see and do - time on the lovely little private beach, a five minute walk from the house (I wish we had gone in the summer so we could go snorkelling), time in Portinho da Arrabida, a tiny group of houses and cafes and a beach fifteen minutes' walk in the other direction from the house. We also went out to Sesimbra and saw the fishing port and the castle, we took a boat trip to see the wonderful dolphins of the Sado Estuary and we rode horses on the beach at Comporta across the estuary past Troia as the sun was setting. It was then wonderful to come back to the house and sit by the fire and watch the ocean. I can't recommend this house or the area enough. AMAZING!
Dear C. and family, thank you so much for your wonderful and detailed of your stay at our house. Next time you simply have to stay longer and enjoy everything else Arrábida has to offer.
Até breve. Obrigado
Being so near to the beach gave us a luxurious-feeling. You can stare over the see, look at the waves and small boats. The house and the veranda were perfect. So was the small swimmingpool (Which is not in the garden of the house but in the garden of the owner, very closeby). The small bay is perfect, the kids used the snorkeling-gear and were happy. Actually we were looking forward to the bicycles and the kayak (as mentioned at the website), but they are not there. There was a SUP but you couldn’t use it, Maybe When you ask. A good, good house to recommend!
Best view ever, close to beach and sightseeing
Very nice owner, excellent contact in advance. The house is locatet in a private way, the main road is a bit away.
The house description was really accurate, it was clean an well-maintened. Wonderfull view (ships, dolphins, sunrise ...)nice garden, two terraces (sun from sunrise till afternoon) and pool (owner's garden), which was small but very practical (we loved it). About 100 m away, it descends a staircase to the small beach (to swim or to snorkel in the protected bay. The other (also very popular) beaches are not far away (20 minutes by foot, half an hour by car) in Serra Arrabida oder the "Open Ocean" by meca.
It is a very good house in a popular region, sightseeing, swimming.. including. We highly recommand Casa sul Mar and we say OBRIGADO to Raquel and Pedro.
Thank you very much for your very kind review we trully appreciate families who enjoy our house for what it is we try to make our best to make it an extension of who we are so your review could not be better :-). We certainly hope to have the pleasure of hosting you again in the near future.

Gigantische Aussicht in äußerst beliebter Region
Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter war im Vorfeld ganz hervorragend. Wir haben uns bestens "betreut" gefühlt (Kontakt, Tipps, Schnorchelausrüstung...).
Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, wobei das Wohn-Esszimmer der zentrale Raum mit großer Fensterfront zur herrlichen Terrasse ist. Man hat einen tollen Ausblick auf Schiffe (Setubalhafen) und manchmal sogar Delfine. Das ist auf jeden Fall ein Highlight! Die Küche ist bestens ausgestattet, wir haben nichts vermisst. Es gibt zwei WC (eines von außen zugänglich) und ein kleines, schönes Bad (war für uns Zwei ganz wunderbar ausreichend). Die Schlafräume sind recht klein, die Matratzen waren uns zu hart und zu dünn (ist aber Geschmackssache!). Nachts ist es (bis auf ein paar Hunde) angenehm ruhig.
Der Pool ist klasse (klein aber fein) und wir haben ihn wirklich gerne genutzt! Der kleine Strand unterhalb des Hauses bietet allerbeste Schnorchelmöglichkeiten, man kann im glasklarem Wasser sehr schön schwimmen oder auf dem Surfboard paddeln. Allerdings ist der Strand auch sehr gut besucht, wie viele Strände an der Serra Arrabida. Die Strände am offenen Atlantik (bei Meca) sind weiter, aber auch windig und haben ganz ordentliche Wellen (überwacht).
Viele interessante Ausflugsziele (Evora, Marvao, Alcacer, Troia (im südlichen Bereich), Lissabon, Setubal, Sessimbra...) sind in max 2 Std bestens zu erreichen.
Ein wunderbares Haus in bester, sehr beliebter Lage mit guten Ausflugsmöglichkeiten und äußerst netten Vermietern.
Dear S and W,
It was a pleasure hosting you in our house thank you for your very kind review. We certainly hope we can have the pleasure of hosting you again in the near future.

Dear S. Thank you very much for your review. It was for us a pleasure in hosting you and your wonderful family and we hope we can host you all again in the future.
