Friendly and very helpful host. Nice clean comfortable room. Pleasant garden we could use. 200m from beach. Resort pleasant, nothing special other than nice beach and waves (good for surfers) and nice sea view. Perhaps a little touristy as seems to be a key destination at weekends for Lisbonites. Nice walks along clifftop to next village / beach. Nice restaurants in village, although we preferred the small back one over the obvious posh ones and also in next village.

Castro house is a beautiful house with very lovely rooms. Very good location, close to the beach and not far from Sintra, Cascais and Lisbon. Alvaro and Yolanda are very friendly and helpful. They make you feel at home (very important when you travel alone!). I can highly recommend staying at the Castro Beach House!

Álvaro and Yolanda were very friendly and always available to answer to all our needs (from providing us with a parasol for the beach to driving us to Monserrate Palace!). Moreover, as stated in the other comments, the house is beautiful and very well renovated (about a year ago). Actually, there is three houses, and the one containing the present room has a shared living room (where everybody eats breakfast in the morning) and 3 other rooms also available on Airbnb. The breakfast is great and thanks to Álvaro and his wife, my girlfriend and I have become big fans of the tomatoes and the pumpkins jam! There is also a great garden, of course, a nice beach only 5min away. However, I recommend you renting a car (or a scooter) because public transport in the area is very bad and expensive (we experienced it!). Moreover, we had several days of bad weather early July so be advised, there is not a lot of things to do in Praia das Maçãs (but there is a lot around). On the negative side, due to the shared living room being right next to this room, there is quite a lot of noise from 8:30am to 10am (breakfast time, depending on the other guests) which is annoying if you want to sleep longer in the morning. That is why I would advise you to rent the other rooms in that house which are on the sides of the house (while the living room is in the middle). Moreover, even if we had a nice breakfast awaiting for us every morning, it is always (about) the same and after several days, it gets really annoying. Finally, we had several stains on our bed sheets which was strange as everything else was very clean. In summary, we definitely recommend staying at Álvaro and Yolanda's place as they surely have the best accommodation in the area and they will do everything to make your stay enjoyable!

Álvaro and Yolanda were very kind and welcoming hosts. They did a beautiful job restoring and decorating this house and the rooms. They put much love and effort into it and now very happily share the results with their guests. The room has a comfortable bed, storage space for clothing, and a comfortable and clean batroom. The backyard is a great place for sunbathing, but with the beach around the corner it's difficult to choose. It's 30 mins (bus) to 45 mins (tram) to beautiful Sintra, for daytrips to the fairytale-like palaces, castle etc. From Lisbon it's an easy 45-mins trainride to Sintra. It was an absolute pleasure to stay here!

Álvaro war ein super freundlicher Gastgeber. Er hatte immer gute Tipps für Ausflüge und Sehenswürdigkeiten oder hat uns auch mal mit Kleinigkeiten wie etwa ein Schälchen Erdnüsse oder Obst überrascht. Der Garten ist sehr gepflegt, es stehen Liegen und Sonnenschirme zur Verfügung. Auf dem Anwesen gibt es mehrere Zimmer bzw. Appartements, doch es ist großzügig Platz für alle. Parkplätze sind hinter dem Haus ebenfalls ausreichend vorhanden. Unser Zimmer (mit eigenem Bad) war sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sauber und hell. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt!

La casa es perfecta, al lado del mar y muy tranquila. Se puede aparcar en la puerta y tiene un jardín común muy agradable donde poder descansar y tomar el sol, además da una gran sensación de espacio. La habitación es muy limpia y con acabados muy bonitos. Álvaro es un anfitrión ejemplar; agradable, atento y súper educado. Además puede aconsejarte en todo lo que necesites ¡y en varios idiomas! Muchas gracias Álvaro por tus desayunos y tu buen humor día tras día. ¡Y por enseñarnos portugués! Obrigado

Nestes últimos anos dediquei-me a recuperar a casa de férias do meu bisavô, a casa Castro que agora disponibilizo ao turismo.
Gosto de viajar e de me aventurar com algum conforto. Vivi em Timor Leste e em Cabo Verde.
A leitura sobretudo de romance histórico é a minha preferida. A música, mantenho-me pelos anos 60/70 ou clássica. A cozinha portuguesa é para mim das melhores do mundo, pela sua riqueza e variedade. Sobre doçaria é melhor nem falar.
