The story of RENT4REST started in Sesimbra in our family´s beach house, built by my parents in 1984, where I spent all the weekends and vacations of my childhood and youth.
It was in this house that my brother and me learned how to ride a bicycle and how to swim, and collected many other memories that mark our lives. This is a house full of memories of vacations, endless days of playing with cousins, walks on the beach, dives on the swimming pool in the summer, and in winter wonderful evenings by the fireplace. It was in this house that a little bit older, we had our friends over for weekends of fun. Nowadays with our family growing, we want our kids to have the same memories.
To allow the rehabilitation of the house, and because we like to have visits from families and groups from different countries, one day I dared my father to rent our beach house in Sesimbra to guests.
Having guests from all over the world became an experience so rewarding that we decided to create RENT4REST and rent other family and friends properties.
My name is Filipa, I`m an Environmental Engineer and Veterinarian, but at the present time I dedicate myself exclusively to the management of RENT4REST. I`m the one who will answer all your reservations requests, answer all your doubts and most of the times I´ll be the one to welcome you at your arrival. In the management of RENT4REST I rely on the help of my husband Filipe and my father António. We work with certified partners for services of occasional Check-in, Cleaning, Maintenance, Transfers and Tours.
We manage all our properties. They were picked for having unique characteristics like a great view or great location, in front of the beach, on a golf course or in the city center.
Whether you are planning a romantic getaway, or a vacation for family and friends, all our houses are furnished and equipped to make sure that you are comfortable. Most of our houses have Cable TV and free Wi-Fi.
The apartment was great, very conveniently located on the eastern side of the park which is in front of the Casino Estoril. The balcony faces west, so sun in the evening, but not in the morning, which we preferred. The apartment block is in need of an update (the carpet in the hallways is badly marked), the apartment itself is a little shabby, but otherwise convenient and clean. It's on the first floor served by lifts (and stairs). The air conditioning works well and is relatively quiet, and we did not need it overnight (it came on in the early afternoon, whilst we were out and with the curtains shut it was nice and cool for when we returned during the evening). The wifi is reasonably quick - we had no problems with our phones, tablets, etc.
It is very convenient for the railway - which is clean, on time and cheap to use. Also, convenient for the beach (just the other side of the railway lines). We many times walked to and back from Cascais, along the esplanade, but also took advantage of the railway when needed - it's a 4 minute trip, they run every 20 minutes, the carriages are clean, the seats comfortable and they're air conditioned! Two very good restaurants Pinto's on our side and Pinto 1 on the opposite side of the park. Oh and a great chinese restaurant a couple of streets away towards Lisbon.
We used the apartment as our base while we attended the NOS Alive festival down the coast at Alges. It's in a great location and the balcony gives a great view of the gardens, the beach and the sea. It's also very close to Estoril station so getting into Lisbon is easy. It's also a nice walk to Cascais along the promenade.
Good things about the apartment: drinking cold beers on the balcony, kitchen has everything you need, air con, powerful shower
One thing to look at: the balcony has a metal shutter which was not in use during our stay. It presumably blocks out the late night noise from the nearby Estoril Beach Club. This wasn't a problem for us as we weren't getting back from NOS Alive at around 4am but I would imagine anyone trying to get to sleep around midnight would be disturbed by the noise if the balcony shutters were not working during their stay.
Overall, a very pleasant stay.
Thanks to Filipa for her quick responses re questions on arrival and departure - made things easy for us.
Great apartment, good location for Lisbon & beach, the balcony situated at the central Estoril square, the airconditioning & fast wifi is also great. There's some little disadvantages such as noisy night disco on the beach in the weekend, no coffee machine and generally the equipment of the kitchen.
Wonderful apartment in Estoril. Location is a must, close to the Casino, to the magnificent Tamariz Beach (what a sidewalk, 6 Km by the sea, fantastic), and 2 minutes away on foot to the train station that can bring us to Lisbon! Perfect Location. The apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay, quality toilets and furnishure, the kitchen is equipped with everything you need for meals at home. Owner is a very nice person and very available. Close to the apartment you have everything you need on foot, restaurants, pharmacy and supermarket. Estoril is close to Sintra, and Guincho, and of course LIsbon. What fantastic sunny days and sunsets, great memories of excellent moments, and the best is the balcony in the apartment to enjoy them. Highly reccomended!
The Atlantic resorts of Estoril and Cascais - which along with nearby Sintra make up Portugal so-called 'Golden Triangle' - are an excellent base for visitors to Portugal. Within easy reach of the capital Lisbon by train from Cais do Sodre station both Estoril and Cascais, (less than 30 minutes apart on foot) have long been the preferred getaway of rich Lisboetas and well-to-do European visitors. Known as a haunt of international spies in World War II and later hideaway of various pretenders to European thrones, Estoril is now a palm-fringed, pastel playground of the well-off and well connected, drawn by a winning combination of Europe's largest casino, a range of first-class hotels and some superb golf courses. Praia de Tamariz is the lovely beach at the centre of the town with showers, an ocean swimming pool and a number of Estoril is a very beautiful village by the sea, a 25-minute drive from the Lisbon centre and a 15-minute drive from the magical Sintra Village. Lisbon, features historical areas such as Alfama, Belém, Chiado, Rossio and Bairro Alto. The Portela International Airport is a 26-minute drive away.
