About Jonathan and Shirley

We are Jonathan and Shirley. We live in rural East Sussex and are semi retired. We originally bought an apartment in Praia D'el Rey in 2005 and have loved visiting 2 or 3 times a year ever since. As we have a little more time now we decided that we would like to spend more time in Portugal and that a larger property would be ideal. Late in 2015 we sold our apartment and started looking for our new home in Portugal. We looked at lots of properties before finding our perfect villa. We walked into this one and knew instantly that it was for us and what a great decision it has turned out to be. We successfully rented our apartment for 10 years and enjoyed some great feedback from our guests so we have no hesitation in offering our villa for holiday lets and hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.

Jonathan and Shirley purchased this villa in 2016

Why Jonathan and Shirley chose Praia D'el Rey

We have been visiting the Silver Coast of Portugal since 2005. We love this unspoilt area. The beaches, towns and villages but most of all the people. A friendlier country is hard to imagine. There is so much to do and see here and we seem to find something new every trip. The history of Portugal is fascinating and the wonderful architecture of the churches, abbeys etc is stunning. We like to soak up the local atmosphere by sitting at one of the many cafes in the nearby towns. Baleal (a small bohemian surfing paradise) is one of our favourite places. The wonderful thing about our time in Portugal is that we feel able to relax from the moment we arrive

What makes this villa unique

The villa has a very spacious feel to it with the open plan living area. The ability to open the four french doors emphasises this by giving the impression of bringing the terraces and gardens into the villa. All the rooms are lovely and bright. The quiet location is a big positive for us being on the edge of Praia D'el Rey but still within walking distance of all the resort facilities.

Absolutely stunning even better than the pictures. Perfect for relaxing, beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is extremely spacious equipped and designed with everything that you need. Very tastefully decorated and clean.

As the villa sleeps 6 our only comment would be for there to be sufficient sunbeds for all however we do appreciate there were several areas to lounge.

Sad to leave.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review and we are delighted that you loved our villa. Thanks also for your constructive comment about the sun loungers. We have four of them as there are the two other lounging areas, both of which can seat 4 people and we took the view that not everyone would be wanting to use the loungers at the same time. Given your comment we will review this at the end of this season and see whether we can find suitable, matching ones for next year. We hope to welcome you back in the future.

Fantastic week in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

We were very fortunate with the weather

Sunny all week, which enhanced our experience staying at this lovely villa, we have wanted for nothing the villa provides everything you would need, making it home from home. We love the lay out of the villa, always a position to soak up the sun, nice pool, great loungers and chairs perfect. Interior is gorgeous very well appointed and fab layout, immediately pleasing when you enter.All perfect and very comfortable: three lovely bedrooms, three great bathrooms, along with great kitchen,dining and lounge area, all fresh and decorated lovely.

We loved the position easy walk to clubhouse and hotel facilities. Everyday we would walk down to hotel on to the truly most amazing beach, with glorious views down to Mare restaurant then back up to villa passing the clubhouse, perfect.

The Playa del Rey golf course is probably my favourite golf course I have played stunning, I have visited this area many times and the more I visit the more I love it.

Thank you for a lovely family holiday.

A lovely experience from start to finish

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 days at the villa and very much enjoyed the experience. The villa is very spacious, well appointed and comfortable. We liked being based on the edge of the prestigious Praia D'el Rey development since it was very quiet and peaceful, but still within easy reach of the resort facilities and the local beaches - as well as being a good base from which to explore the Silver Coast. In addition to only being one hour from Lisbon (travelling on empty motorways is delightful compared to the congested UK!), the villa is within 15 minutes of Obidos (a jewel of Portugal) and other places such as Batalha, Nazare and Leiria can be reached within an hour. Restaurants are best off the resort with Serra D'el Rei, Peniche, Baleal and Ferrel all within easy reach. The hosts and their local agent were very pleasant and responsive. Highly recommended. Many thanks for a great holiday experience.

Perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was luxurious, super comfortable and very well quipped. We liked the location because compared to other villas in the area, it overlooked trees at the back rather than other villas; the garden was tidy with lovely plants; and there were no insects such as mosquitos which was a relief. The villa was very spacious, with great dimensions, ample bathrooms, great showers, reliable wifi and proper, family sized, sturdy and comfortable furniture. We stayed in a beach-front house for our first week but preferred this villa for our second because of space and comfort. We would love to come back for future holidays.

Wir haben uns in dem Haus sehr wohl gefühlt. Sehr gepflegtes und komfortables Anwesen!

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr groß und bietet alles, was man für einen entspannten und komfortablen Urlaub benötigt. Wir haben uns von der ersten Minute an sehr willkommen gefühlt. So ist z.B. die Küche gut zur Selbstversorgung ausgestattet und der Wohnbereich und die Schlafräume sind großzügig bemessen. Besonders schön sind die verschiedenen Sitzgelegenheiten draußen und der liebevoll angelegte Garten. Der Pool lädt zum Schwimmen ein, die Wassertemperatur war zu unserer Zeit angenehm. Der betreuende Service war sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend und hat bei Fragen jederzeit weitergeholfen.

Die Lage des Hauses ist ruhig und sehr günstig, um sowohl schöne Strände als auch sehenswerte Orte Portugals zu besuchen (Obidos, Lissabon, Tomar, Porto...)

Aus unserer Sicht ist die Unterkunft uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We are happy to read that you liked the villa and recommend it. We are especially pleased to hear that you found our managing agent (Priscila) so helpful. It sounds like you took the opportunity to explore the area and this is something we encourage our guests to do as it is such a beautiful area. Of course it is an equally good place to just relax and enjoy the villa and the sun. Thank you for choosing our villa. We enjoyed having you as guests and we hope to welcome you back again in the future. Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung. Wir hoffen jedoch, dass sie bei Ihrer Reiseplanung weiterhilft. Wir freuen uns besonders, dass Sie unseren Geschäftsführer (Priscila) so hilfreich fanden. Es klingt wie Sie die Gelegenheit, die Gegend zu erkunden und das ist etwas, was wir ermutigen unsere Gäste zu tun, da es so eine schöne Gegend ist. Natürlich ist es ein ebenso guter Ort, um einfach nur zu entspannen und die Villa und die Sonne zu genießen. Vielen Dank für die Wahl unserer Villa. Wir hoffen jedoch, dass sie bei Ihrer Reiseplanung weiterhilft. Original auf Englisch Language Weaver Bewerten Sie diese Übersetzung: Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung Mangelhaft Gut

Stunning villa inside and out

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from Praia del Rey where two families shared this top class villa. We made plenty of use of the facilities, especially the outside barbecue, the seating spread around the outside of the property and the boys used the pool although we did find the water extremely cold which was a pity. The area of the resort where the villa is located is very quiet and it takes a good 15/20 minutes to walk to the Marriott hotel if you want to use their facilities (12 euros a day for the gym or 35 euros a day for the outside pool). It's essential to hire a car as there are some lovely areas to explore locally such as Obidos, Baleal and Peniche. We also like the beach at Foz da Arelha and did a day trip to Lisbon. If you outsource restaurants outside of the resort the cost is very reasonable and the Portuguese people very friendly. Although the resort has been established around the golf course, even as a non golfer I would definitely recommend this villa if someone was looking to explore this area.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review and we are so pleased that you liked our villa so much. It sounds like you took the opportunity to explore this lovely part of Portugal. You make a very good point about the resort not being just for golfers. Sorry to read about you thinking that the swimming pool was cold. This is the first time we have had this comment. We do suggest to guests that they keep the pool cover on when the pool is not being used. This helps to warm it during the day and insulate it at night. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Car: recommended

The local Praia Del Rey beach is just a 3 minute drive away and stretches for miles in both directions from the resort and is excellent for fine sand, sunbathing, walking and surfing. Many other beaches nearby. There are restaurants at the Hotel and at the golf clubhouse both of which are within walking distance. The clubhouse welcomes everyone, not just golfers. Mare is a fish restaurant on the resort too which is located in the Praia D'el Rey village about a 15 minute walk. It has spectacular views of the ocean and is beautiful as the sun goes down. The restaurants and beach cafes at Baleal are particularly popular. There is also a lagoon at Obidos for swimming, windsurfing or sailing. Peniche and Baleal are great for surfing and there are a number of good schools for beginners.

Lisbon airport is approximately 50 minutes drive. It is a simple journey mostly on motorway. We recommend that you hire a car at the airport where there are plenty of operators to choose from.

There is a local shop on the resort which caters for essentials. Serra D'el Rei the nearest village is about 10 mins away and is where our managing agent has her office. It has a couple of good restaurants, several cafés (one of which sells delicious fresh-baked bread and cakes) and a great butcher, plus a couple of small supermarkets. Obidos is a 15 min drive. This lovely (World Heritage) walled city has a good supermarket on the outskirts and many restaurants. There are often festivals held here and the Medieval one held in the Summer is definitely worth a visit. Caldas Da Rainha is a large town about 20 mins drive away and has plenty of good supermarkets, shops and an excellent market.

Our managing agent will provide you with a guide to the area. This has information on supermarkets and restaurants (with directions from PDR), sports/activities, general information on villages and useful numbers/contacts. The guides are available in English, French and Portuguese.
