We have NEVER gone to the same place twice on holiday, never mind to the same house, but that's how good Cabanas Beach House is!
There are 13 of us - 3 couples, 5 teens, and a 9 and 6 year old, and I can honestly say that the house was perfect. With volleyball, table tennis, badminton, pool table, darts, bikes, swimming pool, hot tub, gym and a massive garden it is like having your own resort without having to share it with anyone. There is so much space, and so many options for outdoor seating, that you can find a quiet and peaceful spot without any bother.
The outdoor dining area, with huge round table, is just the hub of the house and all 13 of us enjoyed many happy family meals round it. With an outdoor oven, pizza oven and various BBQs, cooking and eating is a complete pleasure .
The fresh fruit from the garden each day is lovely and the fresh oysters delivered by Jose were a lovely bonus.
It's a 15 minute stroll down into Cabanas, which is just a lovely Portuguese seaside town. If you are looking for massive bars and all-you-can-eat English breakfasts, you will be disappointed. However you will find a vibrant and lovely wee place with a great selection of bars and restaurants along the seafront (and many off the beaten track too).
Jose and Ana are just the loveliest people - nothing is too much trouble for them and they are generous and kind hosts.
We won't be back next year, as we have lots more of the world to explore, but I definitely hope to visit again at some point!
