“could be improved”
Reviewed October 23, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Poconova 4 is in a very good position in Cascais and would not disappoint.
I have only awarded 3 out of 5 because the interior is needing some upgrading.
The downstairs bedroom has a slight smell of damp and some of the lightbulbs in the bedroom and bathroom do not work.The kitchen is in good order apart from lightbulbs once again.
The lounge is very small and the chairs very uncomfortable and there is really only soft seating for two people.
Television is very small and so old that chromecast or firestick cannot be used.
Upstairs the main bedroom is of a good size and once again has a small television which I am afraid I could not get to work.
The ensuite bathroom has a door that is very difficult to open as the handle is loose and the door rubs on the floor.
If these problems are addressed then this would be a very good rental.

“Lovely town house”
Reviewed September 18, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Beautiful and completely contemporary town house on several levels in a lovely little cobbled street. Well equipped and perfectly clean. The location of the property was perfect for us as we didn't want to use a car for this holiday. Less than 5 minute walk brings you to grocery, shops, takeaways, restaurants, bars and beach. Many other lovely beaches are also close by. 10 minutes brings you to bus and rail station for easy access into Belem and Lisbon by rail and Sintra by bus. Coastal walk into Estoril is also a must.

We had a wonderful holiday - there was certainly plenty to do for a week's holiday and enjoyed this lovely house. Marcos the owner provided an excellent transfer service - thank you

Liked best: Location and property - beautiful modernisation of old building
Liked least: Unfortunately only tiny balcony but we'd expected that and it was as advertised - if only there could be an outside sunbathing area then it would be fantastic - I realise it 's not possible sadly

“Great Location”
Reviewed March 30, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Easy 10 minute walk from the Cascais train station. Travelled with my spouse and my four children age 8 to13. We did not have a car and relied on public transportation so this place was perfect for us. Great location as it was close to the shops, restaurants, beach, mall and public transportation. We walked to most of the tourist attractions on Cascais such as the Boca do Inferno, Parque Marechal Carmona with the Museu Condes de Castro. The main bus station is below the mall across the street from the Train station. We took this bus to Sintra for the day to explore the Castles. An all day bus fare per person costs 12.50 Euros and allows you to take the bus in Sintra as well up to go up to the castles. I would definitely recommend this as it is a long way to walk up.

This place is clean with modern furnishings. We liked the open concept and minimalist look. The wi-fi was very reliable. Also, the owner, Marcos, was always very prompt in replying back if I had any questions. We loved Cascais and hope to return again!

“Superb location, modern design with plenty of space”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The house is set back from the main square and sheltered from noise. Set in amongst the cobbled streets the modern interior design is a clever contrast and the decor and fittings are to a high standard. The layout is roomy and comfortable and has all amenities for short and longer stays.
The location is ideal, only 5 minutes from the train station and with the beach and restaurants on your doorstep.
The town itself has a bit of everything, plenty of choice for restaurants and the owner provides a few tips for places to eat that are just off the the main tourist streets and a real treat to find. Whether you want to relax on the beach, take a walk along the promenade or be more energetic and try out the waterspouts and free bicycles to venture further out, Cascais is a great place to visit.

“Location, location, location”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Poconovo 4 is a perfect place to stay in Cascais centre. It is just minutes walking to the main square, Marina, park, train station, bus station, shopping, restaurants, bars and beach. My husband and I and two friends stayed at this great house for 10 days and had a good time.

As advertised, the house is crisp and modern, the beds were comfy and there is a living room/dinning room and kitchen with all amenities that make it perfectly suitable for self catering.

Marcos was a good host, very accommodating and was there to greet us on late arrival and departure. Thank you!

We recommend this house as a perfect Cascais city centre rental.
