“A "holiday home"?-Not what we expected”
Reviewed September 18, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

As I said- your enjoyment of this holiday home will be dependant on your expectations.
Our expectations of a holiday home is -somewhere you can relax, chill by the pool, feel calm and quiet, safe and comfortable. A place with good facilities, someplace clean, and private. A place you get a nice welcome pack- a few basic cleaning things, some water, a bottle of wine.. a loo roll. Close to restaurants, beach and shopping facilities.
We booked this holiday home for two weeks. It had three reviews all five stars, though old from 2013- we gave it the benefit of the doubt. the location is six km from Esposende.
Location was not great, in a small road with quite a bit of traffic, difficult to pass in places.
The people who own the house are very welcoming- it was indeed very difficult for us to tell them of our discontent, so, we found another place and left 5 days early. I am writing this review in truth, to tell prospective renters what to expect.

The people who own this house live next door. Their home is a large beautiful contemporary home.
The holiday house however, is not- it is very old.

The decor, and furniture's dated and old fashioned. The lounge suite smelt very badly of must, like it had been damp. We could not use this room because of this.
The smell permeated the house. We tried to spend as little time as possible in the house.
The bed was hard as nails, very uncomfortable. It is a must - that the beds in holiday homes are comfortable and fresh.
The house was not as clean as we would have liked. We spent the first day cleaning it.
The house was not well equipped as a starter- there was not even a bottle of water or a grain of salt or a toilet roll. We arrived late in the evening and had to go straight to the supermarket to buy basic supplies of cleaning stuff and food. It would have been nice if the owners had thought a little more of those basic needs.
The very worst experience was the bull terrier dog they kept under the house. This dog was angry- He was left locked in a small space all day. He barked incessantly at every car, person passing by. He tried to attack us as we mounted the steps to the property. He kept us from sleeping until late- and woke us early with the cockerel.
The WIFI was terrible and kept falling over until the owner ran a cable to the house after four days.
The swimming pool was nice, but the area was not nicely kept. the outdoor kitchen had a barbecue, it was not inviting or clean. The whole place was full of flies.
I would suggest that people think hard about their expectations before booking. If you want pure rustic Portugal, are good with animals, and county life. this house is spacious for a family. Would I recommend it for a older couple who like their comfort. NO.
