“First stay with airbnb...LOVED it!!”
OCT. 28 – NOV. 2 Casa da Travessa, Gabriela, Obidos, Portugal RETURN TO OBIDOS 10 YEARS LATER Ten years is a long time, but if the memory is lasting, then maybe it’s not so long. We wanted to return to Obidos and our only regret is that it took 10 years. Thanks to Airbnb we were able to stay in a property within the walls of the village. We had no interest in swimming pools and proximity to a beach. We wanted a “village” experience. Gabriela and her Cassa da Travessavillage provided a unique experience and will be as memorable as our first visit 10 years ago. This was our first venture with Airbnb and did not know totally what to expect. Gabriela made it easy. She was very responsive by e-mail contact and arranged to meet us outside the walls of the village. She lead us by car through the gates of this ancient walled village. We followed in our small rental car. Hint: Small car is essential for navigating the very narrow streets in the village, but at the same time a lot of fun and part of the experience. A parking space was provided near the house with appropriate parking authorization. Gabriela introduced the house to us and it was a total delight. The property is a charming two level small house that fits perfectly with the small street and neighboring houses. The front door opens directly to a pedestrian only small street with only the occasional sound of voices of a few tourists and neighbors walking by. The downstairs has an entrance foyer, a living room with sofas and TV. Guessing the sofas could be converted to sleeping accommodations, but not an issue since we were a couple. Behind the living room is fully functional kitchen, complete with full size refrigerator, microwave, oven, and top burner cooker. All crockery, plates, bowls, pots, pans, coffee maker, teapot, and utensils were available and more than adequate for cooking and dining in. A modern and exceptional supermarket is located a couple of miles outside the walls of the village and can easily provide all the staples you will want. Gabriela explained all the functions of the kitchen appliances, internet, door keys, laundry, etc. and answered all questions. Her command of English is excellent and we had no problems communicating. The upstairs consists of two bedrooms and full bath. One bedroom has two twin beds, the other bedroom has one twin bed. Both bedrooms overlook the street. The bedrooms were of ample size and provided more than enough room for our luggage and assorted belongings. The bath was a tub/shower and the bathroom was of good size with plenty of hot water. Our visit was at the end of October so heating/cooling was not an issue. A portable electric radiator was available for room heating if required. Our thinking is that these houses have substantial wall construction and along with the temperate climate of this part of Portugal, mechanical means of heating/cooling is not a big issue. The entire house was impeccably clean and pristine. It is obvious the house has been well maintained. Obidos is a lovely, walled village, and worthy of all your time being spent within the walls. We chose to make some day trips to nearby location, Santarem, Fatima, Alcobaca, Peniche, and Tomar. The Airbnb photos and descriptions were accurate and not misleading. For a “in the village” experience, the Cassa da Travessa is perfect. Obidos is an enchanting place and it’s a thrill to “live in the village” for a short while. We had no issues that required Gabriela’s assistance, although she resides just up the street and around the corner. Gabriela was a delight to meet and we wish her much success with Airbnb. She was our first encounter with Airbnb and we were extremely happy with the experience. It was a privilege and honor to be recipients of her hospitality and kindness. Doris and Don Virginia, USA
