“Best guest house ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2011

The host, Cristiana is sooo warm and lovely, she made us feel at home, very hospitable and friendly. Had a few nice chats with her, she's just so personable. You dont even need to do research as she has a map of Cascais and will show you all the places to go to.
The house itself is wonderfully decorated and can really see Cristiana's creative personality through her tasteful choices of furniture and displays. The bed is also nicely put together with a very comfortable bed and duck down pillows and duvet. Our room was a double room with a cute balcony. The place is about 10mins walk to the town centre and bus/train station or 3mins drive, very accessible.

I will definitely stay here again, no doubt about it. We were so sad when we left, I just wished we stayed here longer!

Decided to spend 3 nights in Cascais after the Lisbon festival of San Antonio In Lisbon and so glad that I did. Agarre o momento which means seize the day or carpe diem for those who are fond of Latin is run by Christiana who is a hostess with the mostest. Cascais is an oasis of calm and culture and Christiana provides the personal touch. In addition, she recommended a wonderful local fish restaurant (not a tourist in sight apart from myself!) called Pateo do Pedisco just up the road from the guest house. Wish I had planned to stay for longer!

Very nice and lovely guesthouse with a lot of charme and a wonderful hostess. The bathroom and also the other parts of the hostel are cleaned every day. The hostess is very friendly and works hard each and every guest.
I've spent in a very loving atmosphere wonderful days and hope to eventually once again.

Only at 10 min walking distance of what there is to see and to do in Cascais, this nice guest house is run by Cristiana mother of Vasco 7. A caring owner with whom I had lots of nice conversations and cafes. Confortable place, clean, quiet, you have access to a very well equiped kitchen, a cozy living room with stereo system, television with cable, free Wi-FI and a good provision of drinks with or without alchool. If you go there to see Cascais and the surroundings such as Sintra, Guincho or Cabo da Roca, this guest house is a MUST. I stayed there for 2 weeks. I really enjoyed it.

Cute little guest house in Cascais - about 3 mins from the town's centre. Extremely clean and great location. Most impressive was the service! Owner and manager was amazing - so friendly and kind. Made us feel so comfortable and like we were right at home. We were almost sad to leave! Will definitely come back one day, and will also recommend to others. Definitely worth a stay!!

My boyfriend and I planned a trip throughout Europe for a total of 6 weeks. Near the end of our stay, after traveling several locations, we agreed to make it all the way to Portugal. Not knowing where exactly to stay we relied on Trip Advisor to help us decide. We settled with an average rated guesthouse without the bells and whistles and had in store for us a big surprise. Upon arrival to Agarre O Momento we were greeted by Cristiana, the new hostel owner, and were showed to our room. She was very accommodating and was there to help at all times. She recommended places to eat, things to see, and even helped us arrange for a scooter to Guincho beach! Throughout our stay, Cristiana and several of the other travelers became friends to us and made our trip to Europe more even more rewarding for the new friendships we developed. I would highly recommend Agarre O Momento for its laid back atmosphere, accommodation and hospitality to its guests, and the comfortable atmosphere provided by this location and the amazing woman who runs it.
