“Return to relaxing, stunning views and the great hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2011

Our 2nd visit and as ever the hosts were welcoming, even remmebering our prefernecs for breakfast and staying up even though our flight was delayed. They have worked hard on improving it since last year and the pool is beautifully done. Susannah has worked hard at this and she runs the most friendly place we have ever stayed at. The beaches as ever are stunning and enjoyed visiting Cascais. restaurants were very reasonable. Will be back next year!

We stayed at the Quinta for a couple of nights. Overall it was good, but we have had better. However, the location next to the beach (Praia grande and Praia das Macas) was perfect.

Overview:

++ Great location next to beaches and not far from Sintra ( Palacio da Pena!)
Owners were friendly and helpful
Room was quite big
Breakfast was ok with fresh eggs

- - Our general impression was that the Quinta was a bit messy. For us the 3 big dogs in and around the house were not our favourite, including the smell of them in the house (though they were very calm) and the fact that they are around the pool area (and sometimes in the pool). If you like dogs, however, this may not be a big deal.
Also the towels were not changed and the room was a bit flat.

My wife and two small children spent 12 days at Quinta Beira Mar in August. The weather was superb and the position of this guesthouse was unbeatable. There were 3 differing but beautiful beaches in walking distance. It reminded us of Cornwall with sun and more picturesque views. The sea is rough but the beaches have streams and places the kids could play. The town was quaint and we loved the day trips we undertook on the old tram was a real highlight to sintra and the toy museum which our children still talk about. The owners rae gracious and helpful, always offering to help and advice. They even offered to baby sit - what service! They hosted a BBQ for all the guests staying and charged very little - serving fresh squid and speciality pork with some lovely roasted potatoes. Pudding was ice cream- delicious. On other nights we had spaghetti bolognaise and also chicken with roasted vegetables. But the highlight was the breakfast- cereals, speciality cheeses, hams, fresh fruit and pastries- a light Portuguese breakfast it most certainly was not! But delicious it was! Suzanna as hostess was the hostess with the mostest, a lovely smile welcomed us to breakfast and she could not have been more helpful. Her husband Jerry was also a good host and manned the BBQ expertly. We have already booked our return trip, this place is a little piece of heaven!

I stayed at this wonderful bespoke B&B with my wife and two young children. Located superbly for the surrounding beaches, just 2 minutes from the trendy surf beach of Praia Pequena and about 10-15 minutes to the two larger beaches at Praia das Macas and Praia Grande (both have swimming pools nearby). Also great for visting nearby Sintra and only 45 minutes into central Lisbon.
The owners were very friendly and allowed us to BBQ at the house in the evenings. We also made use of the new swimming pool, perfect for a few lengths before a breakfast including fresh eggs from the on site chickens. Will be returning in 2010....

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2009

The House is lovely, very well looked after and in a fantastic location; 1 minute walk to one beach, 5-10 mins to two other beaches with amazing restaurants (I highly recommend the yummy seafood at "Oceano" in Praia das Maçãs) Our room was large, very clean and beautifully decorated, fantastic view of the gardens and sea from our big balcony. The Owners are very friendly and welcoming, and full of great suggestions for day trips and things to do. There is a fantastic outdoor seating & BBQ area, new swimming pool and even two chickens - so fresh eggs every morning! Wifi and English Sky TV channels came in handy on the one rainy night we had. They have a couple of adorable dogs which were extremely well behaved and wonderful company.
Would recommend walking to Praia das Maçãs and getting the tram into Sintra for the day, its only 2Euros each way and gives you amazing views of the villages and mountains. Also the Quinta da Regaleira in Sintra is extraordinary, make sure you walk all around the gardens and underground tunnels and read about the history and symbology behind it all!
We had a truly perfect and memorable holiday at Quinta Beira Mar, would recommend to couples, families and singles alike!
