Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Beautiful villa with stunning views
We have just returned from a week in this amazing family friendly villa. A fabulous welcome pack was waiting for us on our arrival, far more generous than anywhere else we have previously stayed. The pool had been heated to 29 degrees, which meant the whole family could go in every day even though it was only Easter. The villa was equipped with everything you could possibly want on holiday including numerous pool toys to keep the children entertained. The huge beach that was only a 5 minute drive away was virtually deserted all week and a great place to watch the local surfers. We look forward to going back again next year!

Fabulous Villa - spectacular views
We were a family of 8 adults (one wheelchair user) and 2 babies who arrived at the Villa on Saturday afternoon to be greeted by the owner Carlos who welcomed us all. He had kindly put some milk, butter, cheese, cold meats and yoghurts in the fridge, fruit on the table and left beer and wine for us too. As we drove down the drive to the Villa we were stunned by the views and were delighted that the first impressions were indeed as good as the video we had seen on line. The villa is very well maintained, the en-suite bedrooms are all large with fantastic views over the Lagoon and beyond out to the Atlantic. Carlos had arranged for a hoist and electric bed for the accessible suite on the ground floor which had a bedroom and bathroom that were both spacious enough for my husband's electric wheelchair. The property is perfect for a large family or group of friends and fantastic for wheelchair users. The Villa was very comfortable, very clean, and had a well equipped kitchen and laundry room (needed with small ones). The dining and sitting room has fantastic views across the lagoon. There were bikes, helmets (2 baby seats on bikes) in the garage which also saw many games of table tennis played. The pool had a hoist for getting my husband into the clean, very warm water. The pool area is surrounded by a glass safely barrier and had a children’s swimming area within the pool itself. It was lovely to swim and look over the lagoon. The villa has a BBQ, crazy golf, small indoor gym, small outdoor gym, hammocks, children's play area and plenty of outside space. In short the Villa was home from home. The beach is a short drive from the Villa and there are restaurants and food shopping within a short driving distance too. This property is an ideal holiday location for a large group especially with a disabled member amongst them. Can’t wait to go back.

Fabulous house in a fabulous location
As a family of 12 (7adults and 5 children) we found the house to be spacious and very comfortable. Carlos, the owner, was very helpful and eager to satisfy our every need. The location was great...a pleasant 15 minutes walking distance from the beaches and cafés. The house was equipped with bicycles which enabled us to ride there with the children. The lovely nearby town of Caldas da Rainha was only a ten minute drive away and it supplied all our needs. The view from the house was staggering. It was lovely to wake up to, to see at sundown and at night too....a real paradise! The children had so much fun with the football table and the ping-pong that we had trouble tearing them away when we wanted to go places. Unfortunately, because of the weather, they were only able to swim once in the pool! Casa da Lago was indeed a dream house which catered to our every need. We, as well as the children, would love to return to the house again and we will certainly recommend it to our friends!

Ett perfekt boende för storfamilj, dvs föräldrar, barn och barnbarn
Vi var 11 personer 6 vuxna och 5 barn i åldern 12-16 år. 3 dubbelrum för oss vuxna och 2 rum med 2 resp 3 seperata sängar. Alla rum med eget badrum. Helt perfekt för oss. Barnen uppskattade verkligen poolen som var uppvärmd och hade en temperatur på 27 grader. Våra matlag fungerade perfekt i köket. Plats för oss alla att äta både inne och ute. Vardagsrummet stort och där kunde vi alla umgås. Alla rum med stora fönster ut mot lagunen. Vid förflyttning korta avstånd fanns det cyklar att ta till, men bil är en fördel för att se omgivningen. Lagunen är sevärd i sig, en marina finns där man kan hyra olika småbåtar. På andra sidan lagunen finns tre golfbanor, en av dem en mästarbana. Ett måste är att besöka Obidos, ett kulturminne. Hela området har många kulturminnen och inåt landet finns vindistrikt. Vill man inte laga sin mat så finns det på gångavstånd en tapas restaurang som vi verkligen uppskattade. Summa summarum ett hus och ett område att uppskatta.

Fantastic accommodation in truly beautiful unspoiled location
Our stay in Casa Do Lago was a very special holiday, The villa is ideally located to take in the excellent views of the Atlantic and Lagoa de Obidos. To wake up each morning to such breath taking scenery was really special. During our weeks stay we visited Nazare, Salir do Porte( the high sloped dune there is amazing to see), Fatima and Obidos. All within easy reach. The local village of Foz do Arelho has excellent beaches and at least two excellent restaurants that we dined in.The villa has an excellent pool. The kids and the adults loved the pool(which overlooks the stunning views), the cycling, crazy golf, barbecue area, playground, table tennis and of course the excellent weather. The owner, Carlos, was very helpful and provides a great personal touch. We had a fantastic relaxing week.

The Perfect 'Big Birthday' Holiday !
We stayed at Casa do Lago for my 60th birthday celebrations last August. It's a beautifully located property with great facilities for all of the extended family party that came on the trip. Foz do Arelho is a nice small resort with excellent beaches and restaurants, and the property is a short drive, or even a reasonable walk from there. Because of all the facilities at the property, you could spend most of your time there, as there was plenty to keep everyone amused, but there are other resorts to visit if you so wish. We would recommend a trip to Obidos, just a 15 minute drive away, a small, medieval town with plenty of shopping and eating places, without being over commercialised. Caldas da Rainha market is also worth a visit, again a short drive away.

Fantastic Holiday
This is the second time that we stayed in Casa do Lago. There were 9 of us ranging from 70 to 8 years old. As in the previous year we all had a brilliant time. The house is lovely to stay in and has all you need regarding facilities and appliances - even UK TV channels which enabled us to watch the end of the Olympics. It is home from home. Outside there are great facilities including the beautifully warm swimming pool. We all had a great time and were sad to leave. If I could change one thing it would be for the sea to be less rough. However hang said this all the children enjoyed windsurfing on the lagoon which is warm and totally safe, only a very short drive from the house.

A wonderful holiday in an amazing venue.
A luxurious villa set high on a hill providing a spectacular view over the lagoon and over towards the sea. All mod cons provided an easy, relaxing self catered holiday. A beautiful pool, well screened for child safety, was set in a pretty garden which also had great keep fit equipment and provided great fun for the whole family. The ping pong table, dart board and table football provided fun for all and the bicycles were used daily to either ride down to the beach or to the sailing club on the lagoon which provided more entertainment for the family. Villa was clean and comfortable and a comprenhensive and delicious starter pack was waiting for us on arrival. A fabulous holiday which was perfect for our whole family 3 months to to 60+.

Could not be in a nicer place for a family holiday
The best equipped villa we ever stayed in with an excellant welcome pack when we arrived,everything was of a high standard and catered for both adults and children. The area is quiet and unspoilt , the local sailing club was great value and very friendly. Having 11 bicycles on site was fantastis as we got to get out and see the local area on them. There is a excelent fish restaurant beside the beach + other good value places to eat . This place was made for relaxation.

Perfect holiday villa for a large group with bags of character
We rented Casa do Lago to celebrate our birthdays with a group of friends and it proved to be just perfect. Each room has an ensuite and a view, the pool is a good size with plenty of room for everyone to sunbathe and the garden holds many surprises! We rented another villa down the road for other friends and it was easy to host them in Casa do Lago given the size of the living room and kitchen and also the outdoor barbecue. The size of the house is also helpful on rainy days, when we were able to watch DVDs as a group in comfort. The style of the house is very distinct and quite imposing when you arrive. Location wise it's an hour's drive from Lisbon so relatively easy to reach in a hire car from a budget airline flight. The nearest town, Foz do Areldo, has a few nice bars and restaurants and a trip to nearby Obidos is a must - what a beautiful historic town. The owners were a pleasure to deal with, helpful and friendly, and the price very competitive for what you get. We hope to be back - perhaps with friends who have children, as it's very well set up for kids too.
