“Superb accommodation on a memorable holiday!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Dave and Maria's beach house was by far the best accommodation we have ever stayed in! The location is practically on the beach, next door to the surf shop and across the road from the supermarket. It is a 20 min stroll into Peniche town and harbour and 10 min stroll from the bus station. The house was equipped with everything we needed for our stay, from plug adapters to wi-fi to bicycles for getting around Peniche. Dave and Maria were a pleasure to deal with and we have very happy memories from our stay in Peniche!

“Lovely Beach House with extras”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Dave and Maria were helpful and patient throughout the process of us organising our trip to Portugal. We had 3 nights in Lisbon before taking the bus to Peniche (9 Euros single, approx. 90 minutes) where we enjoyed a lovely week in 'Sutton's Retreat.' Bedroom (huge but hard bed!) and bathroom are clean and spacious. Bikes, surfboards, (even if we weren't brave enough to use them!) and garden furniture all available but unfortunately they were stored in open plan sitting/dining room area which made it feel a bit cluttered as every inch of space is taken up with storage. However the bikes and boards are extras not usually offered in other holiday accommodation. Supermarkets and small cafes nearby. Many good, reasonably priced restaurants a pleasant 15 minute stroll away though the lovely wee town. English spoken everywhere. Bus station very handy for day trips. You don't need a car. Lots of surfing lessons going on but beach was never really busy. Lots of kite flying in the evenings. Friendly elderly couple next door. Great time was had by all.

“You cant get any closer to the beach!”

We stayed at Suttons retreat in October 2010, having never been to Portugal before we were not sure what to expect. Well, we were pleasantly surprised, the accomodation isnt close to the beach, its on the beach which was amazing. stepping out of the front door theres plenty of parking, and about 5 steps to the sandy banks and the beach bar. Great for surfers, Peniche is rated in the top ten surf spots in the world, so you will not be dissapointed, Baleal and Subertubos a stones throw away, about 5 mins in the car. there are surf schools nearby offering surfing and Kite surfing lessons.

The accomodation was clean and comfortable, and perfect for what we wanted. Theres a great supermarket over the road, a newsagents, Surf Shop (where you can also hire surf or body boards at a daily rate) round the corner and the Tourist Information is next door, so you will always be able to find something to do! venturing into Peniche itself, there is a small shopping precinct, and plenty of bars and resturants with great views of the marina. Theres boat trips avaliable from Peniche to Berlenga, there are several companies with information at the Marina.

Suttons Retreat was about one hours drive north of Lisbon, it is very easy to find and is on the main road into Peniche.

We have booked to go again in June 2011

Thank you for a great holiday and we are looking forward to our next one.
