We had an amazing time on our 7 day stay. First, Mauricio's home was lovely and so much attention to detail was put into providing us with all the amenities we could ask for. He aslo provided a book of recommendation that have been well thought out - we went to most of them and they were spot on. We visited Sinthra on our last day and quickly realized we should have started there- It was absolutely beautiful. Lisobn and Cascais were also wonderful with plenty of restaurants that served amazingly great food at a very reasonable price. We can't wait to book again! Thanks for being such a great host!
Buy there local wine - it's awesome and cheap; Mauricio's porch was perfect to relax and wind down with a glass!!!!!
Stayed here for a week with my family. This house met all our needs. All amenities were available and the conditions of this house was immaculate, very clean and beautiful decor. I would strongly recommend this home to anyone wanting a great, safe relaxing vacation. Mauricio was a great host always keeping in touch making sure everything was ok.
I would like to take this opportunity and thank for all you did to make our stay a wonderfull one. Upon arrival we were welcomed nicely and provided with usefull information and handy tips Once we reached the house, it was beyond our expectation. I came here to spend a week with my wife, mother and parents in law. The accomodation suited this purpose perfectly. Everything you need is there, it's clean, enough privacy for everyone, the area is quiet and peacefull, good Wi-Fi, a bakery nearby and on and on. During our stay Maurico was happy to help with tips on reasturants and things/places we could explore. There are guides and maps of Portugal available in the house. I would definitley comeback and recommend this place to anyone looking for a great accomodation in this area. Muito obrigado para tudo!
We stayed here for 6 nights at the end of April/beginning of May. As soon as I booked I got a very welcoming message from Mauricio and lots of helpful information followed. The house itself is lovely - about a 20 minute walk from the centre of town in a very quiet residential area. It's very well equipped and the outside area is much bigger than it looks on the photos! Mauricio checked in with us several times to check everything was ok which was really nice. Highly recommended for couples or families!
Cascais is a great beach community, a lot of great restaurants and conveniently located to all the highways, bus service and metro. Many shops and great restaurants. Host, made himself available to us and was very knowledgeable and helpful. His home was beautifully furnished and very clean. First experience in Portugal and we will be back.
Where do I begin....my family and I stayed at the Casa dos Sonhos on January 2-7. Mauricio texted me to make sure that we had arrived to house safe and sound. When we arrived we opened the doors to a beautiful, immaculate, cozy, well equipped home. There was a binder that included key information regarding the house and it also contained a list of local restaurants that came highly recommended. The house was well equipped: toaster, washer, heaters,extra cozy blankets, Q-tips, shampoo, and it even had a hair straightener,which I totally appreciated. Mauricio checked in via text throughout our trip to ensure that we were doing well. The house is located in a great location,close to the beach and supermarket. I highly recommend this beautiful home! Two thumbs up! 5 stars!
This is our first visit to Cascais and in Portugal and we visited over the Christmas holidays (2016). We are a family of five, mum, dad and three grown sons.
The owner (Mauricio) of Casa dos Sonhos sent us tips prior to the visit which was invaluable. In addition, Mauricio made contact via phone/email to answer questions prior to our departure. He provided instructions which made our travel on train from Lisbon airport very easy.
I’m glad we choose Casa dos Sonhos to stay as the accommodation exceeded our expectations. The house was impeccable and very comfortable for us. The Wi-Fi and TV channels were vast with lots to choose from, so much so that the boys were too comfortable and were reluctant to leave the house.
If I were to rate the accommodation, I’ll give it a five star rating. Because of the amenities provided e.g. beddings, cooking utensils, decorations, outside space, Nespresso coffee machine with the pods etc. Most importantly, the accommodation is located in a tranquil neighbourhood……….
Our best aspect of the accommodation was opening the door to find the most gorgeous beautiful Christmas tree – this shows the extra length that Mauricio and his wife have gone to make our stay a happy experience. On Christmas Eve, Mauricio arranged for a treat of exquisite Portuguese delicious delicacies to be delivered and laid out for us.
The location of the house served as an easy gateway to the different tourist and local sites. Staying at the house gave us the opportunity to experience how the local Portuguese lives. In addition, we were able to travel easily to the various tourist sites. For example, we had a leisurely walk to Boca do Inferno, Cascais. We also visited the museums in Cascais which were within walking distance from the house. We visited Cidadela de Cascais – Cascais Fort, which holds lots of history about Portugal.
We particularly enjoyed our trip to Lisbon city centre in the evening. We travelled by train from Cascais to Cais do Sadre Station. The journey was about 45 minutes and costed a few Euros. Lisbon comes alive at night with lots of street performances and eateries.
There are places we are yet to visit in Cascais so we are planning our next visit…….to be continued
