About David Bevis
I have been married to a lovely Portuguese lady from Sesimbra for the last 27 yrs. We currently live in England, but are hoping to retire to Sesimbra in 2018. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I joined the Metropolitan Police as a cadet aged 16 years in 1974. I then became an officer in 1976 and worked as a Police Officer until retiring in 2012. In 2013, I started a new career with the British Transport Police as a Civilian and still work for them I am a family man and we have 3 grown up children and 6 grand children. I always look forward to our holidays in Sesimbra. It is here that I can relax, eat the best food and drink fabulous wines. I love to go fishing and enjoy lovely walks in the area. I also love to see the little owls in Cabo Espichel and Azoia, and go to see them at least twice a week. I can't wait to be able to call Sesimbra my home

Fabulous apartment, amazing terrace, and beautiful sunsets.
We have just returned from a very happy two week stay. The apartment was perfectly situated for us, with views over the countryside and to the sea.
It was clean and well stocked throughout, with lots of linens. The kitchen had a good selection of crockery, glass wear, pots and pans.
The terrace was amazing, HUGE, with sun beds, and a table and chairs. Great to relax on with a glass of wine, watching the sun go down.
The pool and gardens were in good order, mostly we had it all to ourselves!
There was a little cafe just out the back, that also sold fresh bread and pastries.
We all agreed this was one of our most favourite stays in Portugal!
Thank you so much for your kind comments.
We have equipped the apartment with everything we would have at home. When we bought the apartment, we were amazed at the size of the terrace and the wonderful views. It is special when the sun sets over Cabo Espichel and when I have stayed in the apartment it has been a highlight of the day. I have a high powered pair of binoculars and also used to enjoy watching the ships and cruise liners going in and out of Lisbon. I could even read the names of them.
I would like to also thank you Sean and Lisa for leaving the place so clean and tidy, which was amazing considering how early you had to leave.
As for the pool, it is not the first time that guests have said that they had the pool to themselves most of the time.
Our next guests arrived later in the afternoon which was on a Saturday, from Spain, we had the privilege of showing them around the apartment, which is rare for us as we are normally in the UK. It was lovely to see their response. I asked if the apartment was sufficient for their needs. The reply was perfect, then he said even better than perfect.
Even though the weather was perfect, there was no one using the pool.
I hope that you visit Sesimbra again in the future.
Kind regards Dave
Perfect location to relax
The property is located about 45mins from centre of Lisbon and close to seaside town of Sesimbra which makes it a great location
The apartment is really well furnished and has an amazing balcony with views to the Atlantic coast. The pool and garden are lovely and never busy as just a few apartments have access.
There are some great local restaurants to which provide amazing value for money and local dishes
We loved our stay
Hi Martin I am really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I look forward to you returning in the future kind regards Dave
Bel appartement avec grande terrasse et belle piscine
Un appartement très spacieux avec 3 belles chambres, une literie confortable et tout ce qu’il faut pour profiter confortablement des vacances. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié la grande terrasse et la piscine spacieuse. La région est belle surtout les plages Lagoa de Albufeira et Meco. À refaire !
Liebe Betreuung vor Ort.
Wir waren etwas enttäuscht. Die Wohnung innen war sauber und gut ausgestattet. Die Betreuung vor Ort war sehr nett, hilfsbereit und freundlich. Die Lage des Mehrfamilienhauses war nicht so toll. Die grpße Terasse war durch Dauer-Wind nicht nutzbar.
I am very disappointed with the review. On one hand we are told that the apartment inside was clean and well equipped. The care on site was very nice, helpful and friendly.
The comment about the location is obviously a personal thing, this is the 1st time that we have been told that the location of the apartment building was not great. The location was always clearly given. It is 5 minutes from the centre of Sesimbra. Next to a lovely cafe. When previously advertised on Rentalia. we had 21 reviews, it was rated about 4.8 out of 5.
The large terrace was not usable by constant wind. I am sorry, but it was windy, this is very unusual at this time of the year, but, we cannot be held responsible for bad weather. It is a great shame, but, the terrace is a vast place to relax and enjoy the sea views and the views across the countryside.
Valeu a pena!!!
Local sossegado, espaço amplo e próximo de várias praias.
Très bon séjour!!
Appartement très agréable avec une super terrasse, piscine agréable, à refaire.
I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay
