All we ask is that you enjoy your stay, relax feel at home. Feel free to enjoy all we have to offer, in your own time and space. You are on holiday ;o)
The reservation was canceled 48 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I am very sorry to have had to cancel your reservation, I have not taken this decision lightly.
Unfortunately because of situations out of our control, we are unable to receive any guests.
Our access road has been dug up to lay pipes for a new sewerage system. It will take between 7 –9 weeks.
So until such time as it is possible to drive up our road and also be guaranteed water etc, we will have to remain closed.
One again we sincerely apologise for this. We had no advanced warning.
Wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen von Mandy und Philip und ihren Katzen, obwohl wir mangels GPS einige Probleme mit dem Auffinden des Hauses hatten. Uns wurden dann die Räumlichkeiten gezeigt, das Wohnzimmer zur gemeinsamen Nutzung, die gemeinsame Küche mit eigenem Fach im Kühlschrank, das Bad zur gemeinsamen Nutzung und unser Schlafzimmer. Den schönen Außenbereich hätten wir nutzen können, wenn das Wetter besser gewesen wäre. Der Blick auf Lissabon ist atemberaubend.
Die asiatische Ausrichtung incl. Duft von Räucherstäbchen muss man mögen.
Die Gastgeber waren uns gegenüber sehr vertrauensvoll - vielen Dank dafür.

We loved our stay at Mandy and Philip's. they are a lovely couple and made us feel at home.
their home is quite cosy and everything was impecable . the garden is a gem and a secluded, quiet place to relax, spend time, enjoying the cool breeze and the comfortable , oriental style little corners they created with so much care ....
they also took time to sit and spend a bit with us, sharing their experiences and the special wine produced in that area.
thank you both for a lovely stay
Mandy et Philippe nous ont reçu, moi et ma compagne, chez eux pour 3 nuits. La chambre est un peu serré mais le lit est confortable. On y dort très bien. L'endroit est très calme pour ceux qui n'aime pas l'agitation de la ville, ce que nous recherchions. Nous avions accès à la cuisine (bien équipée) au salon et à la douche dans le jardin. Celui-ci est très beau avec différentes plantes et fleurs et une belle vue sur Lisbonne et sa région. La situation géographique nous à permis de visiter le Cabo Espichel, Sesimbra, la région de Troia à Comporta et Carasqueria, et le château de Palmela.
Bien dommage, nous n'avons pas beaucoup communiqué avec nos hôte, problème de langue ? Pourtant je me débrouille en Portugais !
We spend three wonderful days at Mandy and Phillip's.
The place is a beautiful retreat not far from the rush of Lisbon, and they are just amazing people to meet.
Follow Phillip's advice and go have a "Prato Terra e Mar" at Lancelote.
Or try is barbecue...
Beyond that, they really are what Airbnb is about.
Come as guests, leave as friends.
We really hope to see you again !
Julien and Faustine.
It was a nice and delightful home to rest. Mandy and Phillip are kind and very helpful for everything we need, especially with good restaurant and Moscatel wine! Their suggestions were always the best.
Thanks a lot.
Mandys guesthouse is super lovely! We went there by public transport and it worked out well when we checked the timetables ahead. The place was only a short walk away from the bus stop. So glad we went there. The neighborhood was so charming. There were no tourists anywhere near which was perfect. The house and the yard were cozy and you have to try the outdoor shower.

I am from the Uk, but have had a loving relationship with Portugal for over 24 years. I live here with my partner Philip who is Dutch. We enjoy travelling and long for the time when we can go further East, Asia is where our hearts lay.
We enjoy very much meeting new people and helping them have the best holiday they can while under our care.
We love to meet new people but also love to have people who keep returning :) that's why we love hosting
We look forward to meeting you _/|\_
