CASA Happy Huckleberry

Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Baleal, Peniche, Leiria District, Central Portugal
Up a quite lane, beach side of the road in Baleal, which backs on to farm land and the beach. This house is spacious, lots of seaside touches, light and bright, with enough room to sleep6- 8 comfortably (10 at an additional charge) The top of the house is great for kids with it's own shower room, like a loft apartment because it's so big, and the views from there are stunning. Sea views nearly all around this house. You can see the spire of the 5 star Marriot Hotel which is about 5 minutes by car up the farm lane with one of the best golf courses in Europe, and voted 8th best in the world. It's so easy to relax in Baleal, yet your close enough to wander over the road to the cocktail bar and game club or down the road for a great meal at great prices. And you can walk to the beach along by the cliffs for some stunning scenery a... Read more

Interaction with guests
Depending on your time of arrival and my availability I either greet you or leave the keys for you. But I am always available by phone or SMS message 24/7. I live about 20 minutes away if there is any emergency (hopefully not) The house is simple to navigate and the Wifi code is on the kitchen door and as long as you take your rubbish to the bins on the street daily as we don't have bin men then all should be easy.

Great location. 1 Minute walk to the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and a two minute walk from the beaches. Close to the grocery store. With a hired car with a GPS it was easy to find. It proved to be the ideal base for...More

About the neighbourhood
paradise and our house is on the doorstep of what is now reconised as one of the best places to surf in Europe. only 2 minutes walk down to the beach. Lagido beach in Baleal and Supertubos are visited by the best surfers in the World and we hold the Rip Curl World surfing championships here every year.
There are ofter discos at the beach bars in Baleal For people who like to relax out our back windows you see the farms and the coast, beautiful. Our neighbours are locals and twice a week a farmer comes up our lane in his lorry and toots his horn and sells his fruit, fresh and delicious. There's lots of lovely walks and you can hire bikes in Peniche and at the Marriot hotel if you feel like a bike ride around. The weather is nice mainly all year round we had Christmas dinner in the ga...
Getting around
Walking, local cabs are cheap, take your car or hop on a bus. Baleal has a bus service that takes you to Peniche and from Peniche you can go almost anywhere in Portugal. Lisbon is 1 hour on the bus and cheap, around 8 euros.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Lisbon: 80.0 km
Railway: Caldas da Rainha. But buses are faster.: 25.0 km
Ferry: Lisbon: 80.0 km
Coming from the airport you follow the A8 Oeste towards the direction of Loures, Campo Grande, and Leiria all the way till you see the exit for Peniche on the IP6, about 50 minutes. Then follow the IP6 until the main Peniche roundabout and turn right towards Baleal. Follow the coast road all the way along and past the main beach up the slight incline of the road towards Ferrel Village. On the left, you will see the boutique Hotel called 'Peniche Surf Lodge' You turn directly left there and left again and you have arrived in my lane.
Or you can get the bus from Campo Grande or Sete a Rios to Peniche & get a cab which is cheap or I can arrange a cab company from Peniche to bring you from the airport, it's cheaper than getting a Lisbon cab.
