Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Susana's apartment is absolutely beautiful with every convenience you could want for a short or longer term stay.

    The kitchen is fully stocked with equipment for cooking a gourmet meal (the espresso machine is a lovely touch) and there was tea, coffee and even beer in the fridge on a "use and replace" basis.

    Susana has thought of everything and has perfume and toiletries freely available for use in the bathroom (I think she works for a fashion/beauty company in Lisbon!)

    Thank you so much for a lovely stay!

  • Lovely flat in good location, on few occasions we took taxi as only €4 and if you are tired it takes 10-15 min up the hill. Kitchen has all that you may need inc disheasher and washing machine which is great, the only down side was missing air con :( for the first few days it was ok as temp outside was below 30 however afterwards it was well over 30 and i must admit it was difficult to sleep - no air inside at all.
    However i still think it is great płace and great host Susana - nice/warm and caring person!
    I would def come back but not the hottest months

  • This lovely flat was just what a friend and I needed to relax for a week in the delightful seaside town of Cascias. Our hosts were welcoming and warm and left lots of little extras around the flat to make our stay special. I would highly recommend their place and also Cascais-a jewel in this part of Portugal's' coastline.

  • Superbe appartement ! La lumière était au rendez-vous et l'appartement fidèle au nombreuse photos. Très propre, tout le nécessaire ( et même plus) était disponible afin de se sentir chez-soi. La présence du Wi-Fi était grandement appréciée. Plages, resto, magasins, train et autobus sont effectivement facile d'accès, tout en bas de la côte. Susana et Luis on été vraiment acceuillant avec notre famille nous laissant même jouets, basinette et poussette pour notre fils de 1 ans et demi. Toutes nos demandes de renseignement on été répondues. Le quartier est tranquille et ,malgré la côte que nous devions remonter le soir avec nos deux enfants, il faisait toujours bon rentrer à la maison. Certains matins nous avons même vu le berger et ses chèvres partir au paturage en passant par le ravin. On se sentait vraiment ailleurs !

  • We loved our stay at the Sunshine Duplex. The apartment is bright, stylish and very homely. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, a short, if a little hilly walk from the town center and beach.

    Susana was the perfect host - checked in with us before we left home, picked us up from the train on arrival, gave us a little tour of the town and then dropped us back at the station at the end of the week. Could not have been more welcoming.

    Looking forward to going back.

  • This flat is very comfortable, full of light and with an amazing view over a park! The internet worked fine and the hosts are very easy going people that will do anything you need to make you feel at home. Definitely recommended! :)

  • Das war ein voller Erfolg. Bei unserer Ankunft im Flughafen stand Luis schon in der Empfangshalle, um uns abzuholen. Danach Fahrt zur Wohnung mit kurzer Einweisung und Schlüsselübergabe. Er hat uns dann noch netterweise angeboten, uns ins Zentrum des Ortes zu fahren, denn wir wollten noch Essen gehen und kannten uns nicht aus. Also sind wir mit ihm gefahren, waren dort genau richtig und hatten eine gute Auswahl an Restaurants.
    Für unseren Vater-Sohn-Urlaub war die Wohnung ideal. Alles da, was man braucht. Ruhig und eine schöne Aussicht. Ein Auto hatten wir nicht gemietet. Das brauchten wir auch nicht. Mit der Bahn, dem Bus und mit dem Taxis waren wir günstig und schnell überall dort, wo wir hinwollten. Sintra, Cabo da Roca, Lissabon mit Expo, Burg und Christo Rei und Torre de Belem. Zu Fuß zur Boca do inferno und nach Estoril. Wir sind sogar mit dem Taxi über die Ponte Vasco da Gama gefahren.
    Einen Abend waren wir bei Susanna eingeladen und haben eine sehr nette Zeit verbracht.
    Am Tage des Rückfluges stand Luis vor der Tür und hat uns wieder zum Flughafen gefahren. Alles ganz prima gelaufen. Vielen Dank an Susana und Luis.

  • The Sunshine Duplex is absolutely great place to stay. It was well-equipped and in a great location. Close to Lisbon by train and a short walk to the beach. We had a great time in Susana's flat in Cascais. That was a good week at the 25th our wedding anniversary.
    It is clean, modern and neat! Susana (and Luis :) is a great host that treats her guests with hospitality. Susana's husband was also very welcoming and was really helpful and flexible, he came to pick us up at the train station. In January/Febrauary was a great weather, sunny and warm week, and the Cascais is a lovely place to walk along the beach, and so convenient for tourists to sightseeing the Lisbon.
    Highly recommended!

  • O apartamento é excelente, bem localizado, e tem tudo o que é necessário para se ter uma ótima estadia. A Susana é uma pessoa muito atenciosa e se empenha ao máximo para que seus hóspedes se sintam bem e confortáveis, dando também todo o apoio para informações de lazer na região de Cascais e (website hidden) certeza eu e minha esposa voltaríamos a nos hospedar em seu apartamento.

Half Portuguese, Half Swede, 100% Mother of a 4 year old girl. Journalist in a fashion magazine, I live with another journalist, addicted to cars as much as I am to creams and perfume. I travel a lot with work but nothing beats coming back from the airport on the Marginal road on the Estoril Coast and arriving in beautiful Cascais. Home sweet home! Vacations I really loved: South India, Toquio & Kyoto, Istambul and southTurkey, Croatia, Yucatan, Greek Islands, Prague, Budapest, Rome, S Tomé, Turks & Caicos... Favorite work destinations: Paris, London, Milan, NY, what else? ps. we used to live in the duplex flat but when the family grew we moved to a triplex in the same building, that's how much we love the apartments here and the location. Any issues during your stay: just knock on our door!
