“Great, away from the crowds apartment”
Reviewed 30 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The apartment was lovely and the view over the sea and beach amazing. The weather was warm but not too hot (had expected higher temperatures in August). Also more cloud than expected but this probably suited our fair, British skin! The constant sea breeze meant that evenings were cool so bring at least one warmer top. The beach was stunning and manned by lifeguards near the apartment every day. Swimming in the sea not always advised as the waves can be dangerous. Ideal for a quiet, away from it all holiday. The resort is very attractive but still being developed in places (not currently near the apartment). Golf, tennis and other activities are available on site but too expensive for us! Only spent one lunchtime at the clubhouse but very relaxing in a lovely setting. Otherwise not much to do for older teenagers apart from swimming. Would recommend a visit to Escola De Vela Da Lagoa - the Lagoon Sailing School outside Foz do Arelho on the north side of Obidos Lagoon. Particularly enjoyed a trip to Obidos town where there is also an easy to find supermarket (about 20-25 minutes away). The very small supermarket on site is expensive with limited stock. Might be worth considering a welcome pack as it saves rushing out to buy supplies on arrival. The apartment is on a top floor so not really suitable for anyone who struggles with stairs!
The owner was very helpful and communication was good at all times. Part of a very quiet complex in an away from it all location. You'll need to travel at least an hour to visit major tourist places like Lisbon and Sintra. Flew to Porto from Stansted. Very easy route apart from getting in and out of Porto. Did cost about 40 Euros in tolls though. Some of the tolls can only be paid at the post office two days later! Bit of a pain. Overall, a very enjoyable holiday.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 28 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

I would highly recommend this apartment. We had an amazing holiday - it is in a fantastic position with the most spectacular view. The apartment is comfortable, well appointed and in great condition. The main balcony gets the sun for most of the day and evening. It is five minutes to the beach, shop and pools. We had use of two mountain bikes and there was no shortage of parking for the hire car. We also made use of the welcome pack facility which you can pay extra for. This came in handy as our flight was late and we didn't arrive at the apartment until 9.30pm. A great holiday in a great location.

“Delightful, relaxing apartment”
Reviewed 19 March 2012 for a stay in February 2012

Stayed at Beach Balcony for 2 weeks as part of a winter holiday travelling through France, Northern Spain and Portugal and found it a peaceful haven after travelling and staying in hotels. The apartment lives up to its name with fantastic views of the beach, is spacious and very well equipped, including good wi-fi and large flat screen TV with English channels. Furnishings were of a good quality and condition. The kitchen and it's ample cooking facilities / utensils made it easy to do some 'home' cooking after weeks of travelling. We played golf six times at Praia D'el Rey and twice at Royal Obidos (about 3 miles drive away, newly opened and fantastic course - except for it's surrounding "moonscape") and would recommend the apartment to golfers. Overall a great apartment, owner helpful and informative and deposit returned promptly.

“Beautiful, comfortable and with a great view.”
Reviewed 10 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011

We stayed for a week at this apartment and found it to exceed our expectations. The beach in this area is very beautiful and the access was very easy. We like to cook and we found the apartment to be well furnished for cooking and it was great that some of the basic staples were available such as salt, sugar, and some spices. The washing machine worked well and we were able to discover a rapid cycle that is usually illusive in European machines. The owner was very helpful with suggestions and was rapidly responsive in answering questions about the apartment. We paint and the restful, quiet environment was conducive to our hobby. There is a water color I painted of the balcony that I enjoyed frequently with a glass of wine. We highly recommend this apartment. It is a good location for a visit to the central west portion of Portugal. The property didn't show on our GPS but the directions were great that the owner provided. www.merrygoart.com
