The location is great. High up on a hill in between the town and the castle. Look up above the house and you see the crenelated walls of the 12 century Moorish Castelo Sesimbra. Look down and you see Sesimbra town and the harbour and the ocean. You can spend the day in the garden watching the boats coming in and out of the harbour and in the far distance big ships on the horizon coming in and out of Setubal; you can see the crowds way down on the beaches in the town.
The house is a very interesting design, the main room and upstairs bar area are open plan. The upstairs has access to a balcony that wraps around half of the house with seating areas and a hammock. The bedrooms are quiet and dark in the night.
The hosts were friendly and helpful and ready to aid us with any problems we encountered. There were only a few small suggestions I would make to the owners to push my review from four to five stars, but these are too minor to list here.
I would recommend this property to my friends, I feel it was a good find on Trip Advisor and I would happily come and stay here again.
Lovely, well-equipped and spacious house in great location for beach and town. Quirky furnishings may not be to everyone's taste but we loved it. Friendly and efficient check-in / check-out service. Only downside is that pool was pretty cold, even in August, so could do with some solar power to warm it up a few degrees!
The house is situated fearly close to the shore, but very steep hills to walk down and climb up. - made good exercise for us all. The house has very exciting architecture and functioned very well for nine persons, six adults and three children. The house could need some renovations, especially the bathrooms. The laundry could be better, the towels sometimes smelt sour. We all had a very nice three weeks stay in Sesimbra.
The house and garden were delightful, both interesting and well maintained. Our all-age family valued the pool and the opportunity to relax. Lovely location too - we found the people of Sesimbra very friendly and helpful.
