House with a very appealing architecture, based on a fusion of traditional and experimental designs. The pool, although small, fits the need for a cool dip in a sunny summer afternoon. The house is somewhat moist what is normal around the region but which makes it not very suitable for someone with allergies. The Host was always nice and thoughtful. Excellent place to have a rest if you enjoy the rustic countryside living.
Apartment well located in Lisbon.
Nice welcome from Richard.
Following a problem, we have not had the apartment expected but another equivalent.
Appartement bien situé à Lisbonne.
Accueil agréable de Richard.
Suite à un problème, nous n'avons pas eu l'appartement prévu mais un autre équivalent.
Thank you that you have organized ourselves such a beautiful apartment in the city center, as it was a problem with your apartment.
The new apartment was great. totally modern.
Danke dass Sie uns eine so schöne Wohnung mitten in der Stadt organisiert haben, als es mit Ihrer Wohnung ein Problem gab.
Die neue Wohnung war super. total modern.
Nice appartement in the center of the city. Welcoming and helpfull host. We had a wonderful stay in Lisbon.
Oh, this is difficult…the house is both a wonder and a nightmare. Let's start with the wonders.
The house is truly unique; rebuild with an artistic sense for decorating and an almost surrealistic remodelling (rebuilding) of an old house; the floors are mounted into one big open room; basically build with a rock as one part of the construction. The decoration is very original, artistic and with a lot of taste (although maybe not for everybody) - the funitures are elegant - old but chosen with taste. On top of the house there is a terrace and a (very) small pool.
So what's not to like?
Unfortunately quite a lot…
The construction of the house against the rock (being a former wine cellar I believe) creates a _very_ humid and damp environment. True, my son and I are asthmatics (though not very much and usually quite under control), but even the two non-asthmatics in our family complained about breathing difficulties immediately upon arrival; our noses were stuffed and our eyes were irritated as well. The bed linings (and beds) were damp and one room was just plain unusable.
The toilet was broken; the handle fell of every time we used it, and the water ran like Niagara Falls…non stop. The bathroom is situated in the middle of the house, so the most logical passageway is through the bathroom. The door to the toilet doesn't close completely even when locked (leaving a gap of 2-4 cm).
The bath is open in the bathroom and water flows into the next room every time someone is taking a shower.
Within a few hours we realized that we could not possibly stay in the house and took our leave after sleeping there one night (as we had arrived late and had nowhere to go – otherwise we had left immediately). The next morning we sneezing and coughing, returned the keys to the next door bar, and made for Lisbon where we booked a traditional hotel.
We promptly contacted both the owner (who, it should be said, seems like a very nice person) and of course Wimdu and explained our experience.
No refund was made - not even in part.
I guess that is he name of the game when using services like Wimdu, but it most definitely ensured that we are going for traditional hotels and the like in the future.
I cannot imagine any of my colleagues or friends who would accept a house like this for their holidays. And I am truly really sorry to say so, for I have a lot of sympathy for both the hose and the owner.

I celebrated my 26 bday at Richards property and it really was amazing.
The flat is extreeemly welcoming and incredibly cozy we like it very much and the terrace its perfect:)y it realy made me feel like home.
The position is very privileged because its situated in a very bohemic location called Old Village.
You can easily get to Vilamoura or the beach it takes arround 20 min by foot.
The 3 swimmingpools help you relax and enjoy the sun as well the restaurants and everything in old village makes your stay be wonderful.
I really hope i have the opportunity to rent this gorgeous flat again.
Thank you very much Richard it was great!!
The apartment in Lisbon is situated in the old center, yet it is a quiet street without a lot of traffic. It is a practical, cosy and clean home. You can see the history of the building combined with a modern bathroom and careful maintenance.
Although the mattress was quite thin, the next time we stay in Lisbon we will surely try to stay in this house again.
Richard is a nice guy who tries to make you feel at home.
