Julio and Darlene were extremely helpful and nice. We arrived late and Julio waited to show us around house. Washing machine broke during our stay and Julio sorted out a new washing machine in the same day! We were well impressed with that. If we had any questions the response was very fast. Cons: We were a group of 7 (3 couples and a single person). Not all of the bedrooms where equally big (nice big master bedroom but other 2 double rooms were much smaller) furthermore upstairs bathroom for the 2 double rooms was very small and not suited for tall people at all. Because of the unusual warm weather we had some bugs in house but that was dealt with fast and you can expect that since it is almost like countryside house. Pros: Swimming pool and garden area is amazing. Our group enjoyed most time swimming, sunbathing and having BBQ. House is very private and we didn't get disturbed by any neighbors and we couldn't disturb anyone which is good if you like to go for late night 'dunk' in the swimming pool. Big kitchen and living room. We enjoyed cooking in the house very much. Dogs were great company, Lucy was not around much but the small puppy Pipo was always around looking for friendship and games. Great if you are driving because you can safely park. To summarize we had a great stay and it is perfect for bigger groups and families. Julio and Darlene get 10 out of 10 for hosting from us.

The villa was absolutely fantastic. The rooms were a great size (particularly the master bedroom) and the living room and kitchen were fab and well equipped. We particularly loved the pool! There was a large shopping centre only 10 mins away, whilst the train station was also located nearby (10 - 15 mins walk). The centre of Setúbal was a little bit further away, approx 25 - 30 mins by foot to the old town. Although a bit of a walk away, the route to the centre is very simple and completely doable. The dogs were a nice addition to the villa. Lucie, the German Shepherd, mostly suited herself and is a lovely, gentle natured dog whilst the puppy is much more lively and energetic. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the villa and would recommend it to other holiday-goers. Darlene and Julio were helpful and friendly and remained in contact with us during out stay. They were also extremely accommodating r.e. check-in and check-out and showed us around the villa when we arrived. They introduced us to a taxi driver called Victor who was very dependable and kind and who offered reasonable prices for travel. Overall a great place to stay.

Julio and Darlene were the best hosts I've had using AirBnB. We stayed in their big, beautiful, comfortable, secluded home for a very special life process and they were so accommodating and supportive! The home is spacious and the garden is filled with a variety of old fruit trees - a perfect place to calm down... Thank you for everything Julio and Darlene!

Our arrival was by taxi from Lisbon and thanks to the combination of host Darlene and the taxi driver, we were able to find our way to the Villa. The location is out of town, probably best to describe it as edge of town. It is indeed a garden of peaceful tranquillity tucked away in between various business premises and the neighbourhood is not very flattering. But don't be put off as this place is a typical Portuguese traditional villa style property with some lovely formal garden area an pool, but with some rustic tumbledown areas too that have been left to nature and contrast to the formality of the main gardens. The property comes as a pleasant surprise considering its unassuming frontage. Without a hire car, we thought we'd be in trouble getting around, but we proved that you really don't need one as taxis can be called and in minutes will be waiting at the gate. They are always friendly and one or two even speak fluent English and can tell you much more about the area (call (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) for really helpful, friendly taxi driver - spoke perfect English). Once you find your favourite taxi driver, they'll always be there for you - all so helpful. Next to mention are the permanent residents - two adorable dogs, Lunar and Lucie. They live on the property and always friendly and so pleased to see you after a day out. Spoiling them both with treats and BBQ leftovers was always great fun - they get so excited. Never a chore, always a pleasure those two - and tears on departure from my daughters! We've never experienced an AirBNB place with live-in pets, but I must say it was a great having them there, lovely girls they are. Once you start getting around, there's an abundance of places to visit, all close by. Setubal itself is a charming town, plenty of fish restaurants and pretty squares. The main market is open until 2pm every day and is superb - not to be missed and really good prices. The beaches (7 of them in total) surrounding Setubal are amazing, and the mountain views spectacular. Take a Tuk Tuk tour from the town centre for an unforgettable tour of Arrabida National Park. Must sees are Palmela (castle and pretty town), Azeitao (market on Sundays). Our hosts were always very helpful and to be honest we had the greatest time -one of the best. I can't see any reason not to give 5 stars.

Darlene and Julio are fantastic hosts and really made us (EMAIL HIDDEN)munication prior and during our stay was excellent. They gave us information on the local area and helped us with organising trains for a day out in Lisbon. If you don't have transport, Darlene's friend Victor also has a taxi (mini bus) he is very nice, reliable and competively priced. We used him for a day trip to Sesimbra as we had family stayin there. The villa is extremely private and is not overlooked by anyone so you can totally relax. It really is a lovely place to stay with masses of space for children to run about freely. It has a large well equipped kitchen and a great pool for diving and jumping in. The villa also has two very friendly dogs that welcome you back home with wagging tails, chickens and goldfish. Enjoy!
