What our guests say…

Hi Mr. Marten,

We want to thank you for the way you received and accompanied us during our stay at Quinta Roninho.
Super cozy place, super comfortable house, super clean and fragrant. Super affordable and very hospitable hosts!
It was a vacation to rest and relax, something that is super compatible with accommodation at Quinta Roninho!

Thanks for everything!
Best regards, Ana ‘- (July 2020)

Mr. Maarten
These four days we spent at Quinta Roninho were splendid, both for the excellence of the facilities, for the stunning landscape that is enjoyed, and for the tranquility that surrounded us.
The apartment is very well equipped and with great taste.
We hope to return one day.
I hope that the pandemic will pass quickly and that the crisis that affected tourism will be overcome.
Best regards Jorge’- (june 2020)

Last autumn vacation we went to Portugal with our family with 3 children for the first time. We stayed 6 days in the beautiful apartment of Quinta Roninho. What we enjoyed there. From the beautiful view from our terrace on the pool and the beautiful valley behind it. The apartment was super neat, modern, clean and fully equipped. Maarten had arranged for some goodies to drink and eat in the fridge upon arrival. Furthermore, he was always ready to help us or provide advice if we were going on a trip or wanted to eat out. We have been to Lisbon, Obidos (an old fortified town), Peniche (the beach) and a dino park. In short, plenty to do in the area. We would heartily recommend this apartment to others. Greetings Martin and Saskia. ”(October 2019, translated from Dutch))

We have spent a wonderful week at Quinta Roninho. What a beautiful apartment. We were in the Lisboa apartment. Woke up with sun in our bedroom. A super nice and large terrace with lots of privacy. And beautiful view. Super clean. Stylishly furnished. Maarten is a very enthusiastic host. Welcomed us with a clear explanation and a wonderful welcome package. The swimming pool and garden are beautiful. You can really see that Maarten is proud of his Quinta. Rightly so. Just a place to come back. Thanks for the nice week. Greetings Joseph and Colette. ”(October 2019, translated from Dutch)

Last, unfortunately, day in beautiful Portugal. So much seen in Lisbon, Porto, Peniche, Nazaré etc. Also the hospitality of Ronan Elaine and Maarten cannot be described. Everything was right in this vacation. Eating drinking people culture etc. I don’t have to go to the gym for the first month to train my arm muscles. Many thanks again to you. Hope to be able to come back again next year. ”- Gerard, Monique (September 2019, translated from Dutch)

Already a week at home and looking back on a great time in Portugal. We want to thank you for the wonderful time at Quinta Roninho. It was so nice to stay in your beautiful apartment! You have really thought of everything, from kitchen to bathroom and everything around it; a sense of luxury and comfort. The great view and you as host (with Ronan of course :)) made us feel warm and welcome. We really enjoyed meeting you and have really admired the fantastic place that you have created! Was very nice to eat together and be together. Enjoy the good things, life and each other, wish you all the best! Thanks again. Kind regards Tom, Carla, Saar, Louie. ‘(July 2019, translated from Dutch)

We had a fantastic week at Quinta Roninho, Lisboa apartment. The apartment was clean, luxurious and fully equipped. From all kitchen utensils to board games, books, magazines and a stocked fridge. The roof terrace is very spacious and also safe for smaller children, with a beautiful view of the swimming pool and the landscape behind it. The location is quiet, so a rental car is necessary, but with the car you are quickly in either Bombarral or Obidos for groceries and / or shops. Quinta Roninho is a fantastic place for many trips in the area. A true gem !! Maarten and Elaine have created a beautiful place here and are very helpful and hospitable, so we will gladly return next year! We really enjoyed it, thank you very much for everything. ”- Ingrid (July2019, translated from Dutch)

We have rented apartment Porto (downstairs) for two weeks and that is fully equipped. The decor is modern but cozy, spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is very extensive, with enough pots and pans that you can cook well with and enough kitchenware that makes cooking in the apartment pleasant. For us it was also important that the apartment is child friendly, with the fenced garden and many useful items such as a box with box blanket, changing mat, diaper bucket, baby swimming pool, children’s plates and cutlery. The WiFi signal is also strong in and around the apartment. The view is beautiful and relaxing, also absolutely one of the plus points of Quinta Roninho we think. Maarten is very hospitable and knows a lot about the area. Conclusion, we are very enthusiastic! – Froukje, Jan kees and Julian (June 2019, translated from Dutch)

‘We’ve had two great weeks at Quinta Roninho. The apartment is clean, spacious, and fully equipped. We frequently cooked our own meals, which was easy to do in the very complete kitchen. The living room provides a beautiful view of the Portuguese countryside with Montejunto hill in the distance. At 670 meters it is the highest point in the area. The large sun terrace provides a great private sitting area. In addition, it is possible to sit in the beautifully landscaped garden with its swimming pool.

Quinta Roninho is situated in an appealing, and — in the preseason period when we visited — a very peaceful area. There are several supermarkets and restaurants at a 15-minute driving distance. At an hour’s distance there are many varied sights to be seen. Beaches, natural areas, the medieval town of Obidos, or exciting Lisbon. The remarkable sculpture garden Bacalhoa Buddha Eden is about 10 minutes away, and is well worth a visit.

We visited in the early weeks of Spring, and we had some luck with the weather, so we spent a considerable amount of time enjoying the sun and peace on our own terrace with a good book.

Maarten and Elaine were always available and very helpful when we had questions. They have made a wonderful place for themselves and their guests in Portugal, and we will certainly return there at some point.’– Petra and Sidney (March 2019, translated from Dutch)

What have we enjoyed with our 2 children (2 & 5 years) from our stay in your beautiful apartment! Super furnished, beautiful colors, nice furniture but above all very comfortable. All is present and incredibly clean. The bedrooms have wonderful beds and the bathroom is very spacious and luxurious. The view was fantastic on the terrace and in the living room. Unfortunately the pool was a bit cold at this time of the year for swimming. The garden is wonderful for the kids to run around, and the trampoline and play cars were also a success. And of course you dear Ronan! The area is also very entertaining with beautiful beaches and nice towns. Thank you for your good care (nothing was too much), fun and enthusiasm.- Jeroen, Manon, Sophie and Max (October 2018, translated from Dutch)

We had a fantastic holiday! The Quinta Roninho apartments are delightful; completely furnished, attractive and super clean. We were with our 16 month old son and stayed in the upstairs apartment (Lisboa). Since he is busy with his first steps I searched for accommodation where he could play freely without the dangers of stairs and open swimming pool. And we found it! The little man could snuggle around everywhere and the fully fenced terrace also gave peace outside. Furthermore, everything was taken care of: a cot with aerasleep, changing mat, diaper bucket, high chair and even a children’s pool. Maarten was very hospitable and we could ask everything, everything was taken out of the cupboard to give us a great holiday. On arrival there were already some cold drinks, in the meantime the beds were changed and the apartment cleaned, we received tips about the sights and the surroundings and the last day we flew home late in the afternoon, but it was still arranged that our son was still could sleep in an apartment. In short: really enjoyed our holiday thanks to the beautiful apartment and the enormous hospitality! Ps. The saltwater pool is also very nice! Especially when you have sensitive (child) skin very pleasant.- Michel, Linda, Mees (September 2018, translated from Dutch ).

We were lucky with booking an apartment at Quinta Roninho. And what a pearl we had found in the costa da prata. We stayed one week in apartment Oporto. After ou plane landed in Lisboa we contacted our host Maarten to confirmour somewhat delayed arrival. Because of the delay, he took the opportunity to inform if we needed anything for breakfast the next morning. When we arrived in yhe apartment, not only did we find our friendly host waiting to show us around, we also found our groceries for the next morning plus wine/beer and snacks to welcome us. The apartment was literally new, modern, tastefully decorated and furnished. Kitchen was well equipped so you cab cook a decebt meal if you want. The view over the valley was great. The swimming pool was clean and pleasant because of th slightly salt water. The village itself is quiet and within a strolling distance there is nothing of interest. We visted Caldas da Rainha, Obido (15 min) and Peniche (25 min ) more than once. In a distance of 3,5 km you can visit a wonderful parc Buddha Eden garden of peace. You look youreyes out by seeing so many art sculptures. At Peniche you can enjoy golf surfing. Maarten has shown to have a keen eye for detail, is very handy himself- could probably fix most inconveniences then and there- and is a very nice guy at the same time. We highly recommend this place.- Matthijs en Christine ( August 2018, translated from Dutch)

‘A lovely place in a great location, with great views! We have enjoyed Maarten and Elaine’s hospitality and the well-furnished apartment for one week. Everything was present, and even the fridge was filled upon our arrival! Nice pool with pleasant beds, and a beautifully landscaped garden with enough space for the kids to enjoy themselves. The apartments are located in a quiet village, from where you can easily explore the beautiful environment. Recommended!’ – Valkenburg Family (Juli 2018, translated from Dutch)

‘We had a wonderful relaxed stay in this beautiful, new, and spacious apartment with beautiful views. Owner Maarten and his wife put in every effort to give their guests a pleasant stay, including a delicious cooled wine that awaits you on your arrival! We were there with our college-going children, but even without kids (or with very young kids) it is a fine place. The village is very small, but a large supermarket, golf course, beaches, and Obidos are at a driving distance.’ Recommended!!’ – Peter (Juli 2018, translated from Dutch)

‘We had a fantastic holiday! The apartments at Quinta Roninho are marvelous; completely furnished, tasteful, and very clean. We were there with our 16-month old son, in the upper apartment (Lisboa). Because he is currently taking his first steps, we were looking for a safe accomodation where he could play freely without the risk of falling from the stairs or into an open pool. And we found it! The little man could safely crawl around, and the well-fenced terrace provided a peace of mind outside as well. For the rest, everyhing was taken care of: a cot with aerosleep, a changing pillow, diaper bucket, children’s seat, and even a baby tub. Maarten was very hospitable, and we could ask for anything. No effort was spared to give us a great holiday. When we arrived the drinks were cold, during our stay the beds and the apartment were cleaned, and we got many sightseeing tips. We had a late flight in the afternoon, but Maarten arranged for  our boy to have a nap in one of the apartments nonetheless. In short: we really enjoyed our holiday, thanks to the beautiful apartment and the generous hospitality! P.S., the saltwater swimming pool is very pleasant, especially for sensitive (children’s) skins.’ – Michel, Linda en Mees (August 2018, translated from Dutch)
