  • 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.

  • 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! :)

  • 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!

  • We loved staying in Susana's bright and cheerful apartment. Susana was a friendly and accommodating host. She made careful arrangements for her friend to meet us on arrival since she was going to be away, then came to meet us the following day. We even found welcoming gifts of wine and chocolates for our anniversary on arrival. The apartment had a lovely view at the back and was within easy walking distance for grocery shopping, restaurants and the train station. We loved the town of Cascais as well - such a lovely place to walk along the beach, and so convenient to Lisbon and Sintra for sightseeing.

  • We rented the sunshine Duplex for the weekend for 6 people and the experience was absolutely perfect! The flat is very nice and you have everything you need (for the girls, its heaven! Susane leaves you make up/shower product which are really good!). Susana's husband was also very welcoming and was really helpful and flexible, he came to pick us up at the airport and also took us back on the sunday!. We would definitely recommend to stay in the sunshine duplex!! We hope we can come back !

  • Our family had a great stay in the sunshine duplex. It's the little things that matter and Susana made us feel really welcome in her flat. It was especially convenient staying with a baby as she had a cot for us to use and also left lots of toys for the little nipper to play with.

    If you're thinking of staying in Cascais, I'd definitely recommend this place.

  • We had a wonderful time in Cascais and staying in Susana's place. The home has a lovely, cosy and bright feel to it. Susana did a wonderful job making sure we were comfortable and was always a quick text/call away if we needed anything. I hope to go back again soon!

About
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!
