Caldas de Rainha House Rental Photos and Description

3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6, beach views from all rooms

CASA OZ is a three bedroom house situated right on the beach in the very quiet, non touristy village of Bom Sucesso at the mouth of Obidos Lagoon on the Costa da Prata, 1 hour north of Lisbon., The house, fully renovated in early 2009 is in a location that cannot be bettered. A 10m stroll across the road is the white sand beach of a crystal clear lagoon with swimming, sailing and kayaking. 150 meters around the headland is the surfing beach of Rio Cortico. The house is about 5 minutes from the famous golf course and resort at Praia d'el Rei with the fishing port of Peniche and the surfing Mecca at Baleal a few kilometres along the beachfront road. The village is well served with facilities, with a restaurant, mini market, and a cafe all within 100 meters of the house. Grocery supplies and fresh bread are available daily. The magnificent walled Roman town of Obidos is a short 15 minute drive. Medical services, shops and supermarkets are available at Caldas de Rainha 25 minutes away.

Local attractions: You can search under 'Gronho Portugal' in Google Earth for a view of the location. The house is bookmarked with a yellow pin and called Casa Oz.

The property is close to the World Heritage listed Obidos, and an easy drive to the fishing village of Peniche, the the world renowned and prize winning golf course at Praia del Rei and the Marriott Hotel, the castle at Tomar, the Monastry at Alcobaca, the ferry to Berlengas Islands, the town square markets at Caldas, and even close enough to Lisbon for a night out on the town.

Stunning views in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We spent five nights in this extremely comfortable clean and well equipped property and our only complaint is that it wasn't long enough ! The location is fabulous , and so peaceful it was hard to believe it was Portugal in August ! Not suitable for those who need a hectic nightlife .Ours was a very last minute booking and Vera was unbelievably helpful and also recommend a great restauraunt for the first evening which was our daughters birthday. The children loved the bikes , and the hire shop across the road was great for two more . Try the paddle boarding , the instructors are excellent and the lagoon is the perfect place for it!

Magical Christmas on the beach

  • 5 of 5

With very clear directions it was easy to find the house. Driving down towards the lagoon it was love at first sight. A breathtaking view. Things only got better when we discovered in the house that both from the sitting room and the big bedroom we had that breathtaking view. The house was extremely comfortable and the kitchen complete, allowing us to prepare a X mas feast of a dinner. The owner was very helpfull and responsive to our specific wishes, so we enjoyed our Portugese Xmas tree and decorations. We spend our two weeks with long walks, cozy evenings with the open fire place in the downstairs kitchen/dining area and sightseeing. With Obidos close by, Nazarè for an historical new years eve and Lisbon at an hours drive, plenty to do and see. Sad to leave, but as a family we took many cherished memories with us. Casa Oz, a place not to miss!

Great house, fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

This house is exceptionally well equipped with everything you need. The furniture and beds are very comfortable and the location just by the lagoon so peaceful and beautiful. On our arrival we found the house easily from the directions given and the house was very clean and spacious. The layout of the house makes the most of the lagoon views which are hard to beat. There are just a few bars & eating places in Bom Sucesso so if your looking for nightlife its not the place to be, but if you want a "get away from it all holiday" it definately is. We found the restaurants good and the people very friendly and the cost of eating out very reasonable for good fresh food. Obidos medieval city is a bit touristy but still picturesque and worth a visit. Caldas de Rainha if you want shopping has a good selection of shops. Nazare I wouldn't recommend, it felt like any seaside town in the world and "brash". Sao Martinho however was a lovely place set in a horshoe bay and well worth a visit.The owner was friendly and very helpful with any queries and went out of her way to help sort out a problem we had. I would definately recommend this house, its in a fantastic location and well above the standards we have seen in many rental properties.

The Costa da Prata is situated on the west coast north of Lisbon and largely avoids the excesses of the overdeveloped Algarve. It is close to magnificent historic walled town of Obidos, and the hot spa town of Caldas da Rainha, and a short drive from the world heritage monastery at Alcobaca. Take the A8 north from Lisbon airport in the direction of Torres Vedras/Leiria. At approximately 65kms take exit 13 and follow the signs to Peniche/Obidos. Turn left at the first traffic lights to Peniche and then right at the next lights to Vau/Bom Sucesso. Follow the well marked road through a beautiful pine forest, until the stunning view of the lagoon mouth and the Atlantic tells you that you are almost there. Take first left marked Bairro 5 turn right at the traffic circle and No 63 is a short distance on the right. Welcome!

Other Activities: visiting historic and word heritage sites
