About this listing
Spectacularly located, modern flat, offering 180º unobstructed panoramic views of the Atlantic ocean. The spacious open floor plan and double balcony enable a wonderful holidaying experience. The beach is accessible by foot (5 minutes). Free parking.
Stunning and Spacious 1 Bedroom Modern Studio Flat in the heart of Sesimbra: a mere 5 minute walk to/from the beach and a 40 minute drive from Lisbon.
This genuine mid-century modern flat dates from the late 1960s, and epitomises the style of that period: a continuous open floor plan, large horizontal windows, indirect soft lighting, abundant use of tropical hardwoods and flexible use of the available space.
In particular, the generous window layout, running the whole length of the flat, makes the guests feel as if they are floating above water. It is, in both sound and vision, a truly unique sensation.
Plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars can be found within a 5-10 min walk. Sesimbra is famous for its fish and there are more seafood and fish restaurants than I could name here... Also, the nearby Hotel & Spa is equipped with plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars. For a more local (and arguably better) experience walk further westwards and you will find yourself at the heart of the village - were plenty of award-winning restaurants can be found. One excellent and affordable choice is Isaías, a local grill just 5 min away from the flat, at the intersection of Manuel de Arriaga and Afonso Henriques. It will not disappoint.

Interaction with Guests
I normally reply instantly to any queries.
Either myself or my associate in Sesimbra will handover the keys upon check in.
The flat is situated in east Sesimbra, right next to the brand new Sesimbra Hotel & Spa. The apartment block is ideally located: central and yet quiet enough enough to offer a sense of privacy and tranquility.
Sesimbra is reasonably well connected. Buses leave to and from Lisbon every 1-2 hours, each journey taking about one hour. Bus 207 from TST leaves from Sesimbra and end in Praça de Espanha, in central Lisbon.
Your will find the flat in perfect cleaning condition. Please leave it as clean as you found it - within reason.
All rubbish MUST be taken out before check out and not left inside the flat.
WiFi Internet access is available throughout the flat and is free of charge for guest use.
Upon check out, please close both balcony doors and shutters, and draw the window curtains. Also please turn all the lights off when not in the flat - it pays to be environmentally friendly, and it helps me keep prices low!
From Sep 1 - Nov 30, 2015 the minimum stay is 4 nights.
Tivemos umas férias muito agradáveis no apartamento do Francisco. A descrição da casa e a localização estão adequadas à realidade, bem como a distância a percorrer até à praia. Uns minutos a pé e está-se logo na praia da Califórnia. A vista da varanda é estupenda!
Francisco was very helpful doing our arrival. No problems. Fantastic view from the apartment.
Lo hemos pasado muy bien en la casa de Francisco. Las vistas al mar son increíbles y es como ir en un barco. Dormir con el sonido de las olas nos ha encantado también. La casa tenía de todo y no hemos echado nada en falta. El único apunte menos positivo fue el hecho de haber esperado un buen rato para que nos abrieran la puerta. El anuncio ponía que tenía 2 habitaciones y en realidad es una habitación con dos camas de matrimónio. Para nosotros no fue un problema, pero para quien quiera más privacidad creo q está bien saberlo. En general, muy buena experiencia!!
Carla - esperaste un buen rato porque llegaste más cedo que la hora prevista. Desgraciadamente también saliste sin decir a que horas lo harías. Os hizo un especial favor cuando dejé que se quedasen solo 2 noches y no parece que tus comentarios sean razonables. Y si, el apartamiento tiene dos habitaciones: 1 salón y 1 dormitorio. No sé de que te quejas.
This is a wonderful flat. Very comfortable, convenient and what an amazing view! The flat has got everything you need for a relaxing holiday in Sesimbra.
Great communication with the host. Thank you!
Espaço agradável, pequeno e acolhedor, tornando-se perfeito para duas pessoas. A vista da varanda sobre a baía de Sesimbra é de cortar a respiração; como a casa é envidraçada acorda-se a olhar para o mar.
A casa não é nova mas estava limpa e bem equipada, e o estacionamento não foi um problema. No ultimo dia ficámos sem água quente provavelmente devido à bateria do esquentador, mas fora isso tudo o resto correu bem. É uma boa opção para quem quer passar um pedaço em Sesimbra, num ambiente acolhedor presenteado com uma vista fantástica.
We loved our stay at this apartment! Franscisco was really helpful and as he was going to sesimbra the day we arrived he kindly picked us up from the train station! Thanks again Francisco!
We stayed for 9 nights in total and as it was may the beach was and town were really peaceful, however the weekend became really busy and a noisy family moved in upstairs who kept us up fpr most of the night so we explored surrounding areas, like setubal. When monday morning came around again the tranquility returned.
Great host, great apartment, great location, lovely town. Would highly recommend this apartment. We were very sad to go home.

About the Host, Francisco
I am a designer and live between Portugal and the UK.
I love larges cities and dislike making plans - Lisbon best enjoyed when you are prepared to occasionally change course.
