I wanted to go celebrate my 61 birthday in Portugal. We saw this house and had visions of being in the pool sipping wine & champagne we got there on Sun the house was clean, very beautiful inside and out, but & was told the pool was going to be clean on Mon. The person came told my husband he will be back on Tues which is when I & called Maria telling her we slept late & wanted to know if the guy cleaned it no reply later I asked again she said he put chlorine in the pool and we can go in but said nothing about if it was clean also told her we were having a little trouble with the stove no reply. We were there for 5 nights and never went in the pool and that was the house selling point for us. There is no public transportation, cafes, Stores, spa's, supermarket within walking distance YOU NEED A CAR. I would have love to come back here but the lack of communication & things like the pool should have been clean before the guess arrive.
