Home | Our Story

We are delighted that in 2022 ownership of Holiday Rental Portugal will pass to Suddenly Lda, owned by Priscila Correia. Priscila has lived and worked in the area all her life, having seen Praia d’el Rey grow from sand dunes and pine trees to what it is today. Priscila and her team pride themselves on offering a fantastic service to their clients and they holiday guests.

A mini-history of Holiday Rental Portugal

In 2000 Marianne and Rod Marianne and Rod bought a property at Praia d’el Rey Golf & Beach Resort and loved the area so much that they moved here permanently in 2002, even bringing their cats Barney and Alfie with them. Many new friends and owners asked them to rent and look after their properties and so the rental and management business was born.

In 2015 Marianne retired and her daughter Anna Waterman took over the business, along with the sister property management company Silver Coast Living. Anna continued to grow the business and from small beginnings the companies soon had over 100 properties, managed through our sister company Silver Coast Living Lda and rented to guests from all over the world, many of whom return year on year.

In 2022 Anna has decided that now is the time move on, passing the companies and the team to Priscila Coreia. It has always been important that guests experience a true personal service from those who know and love the area. Priscila has lived and worked in the area all her life having seen Praia ‘del Rey grow from Sand dune and pine trees to what it is today. Priscila’s shared values and focus on great customer service made her the best fit to take over the running of the companies.

We are not like standard travel agents who never see the destination that they are promoting. Our team live and work in the area and are all very lucky that Praia d’el Rey and the Silver Coast region of Portugal is ‘home’. We really are the best people to talk to for help and advice on your holiday here.

Our Properties

For many years we would holiday with our family in different places around Europe, but we would always choose to rent a villa or apartment over a hotel. For us we always preferred having a mini ‘home from home’ and the informality and freedom that a self-catering holiday provides, not to mention the cost savings!

Having stayed in some great places, and some not so great places, we have a pretty good idea what makes a great holiday villa or apartment. We have very high standards, and as such pride ourselves on presenting our guests with a choice of high quality apartments and villas, all beautifully furnished and with personal touches from the property owners.

All our rental properties have the Alojamento Locale (AL licence) – the Portuguese property rental licence. They all contain safety equipment such as smoke alarms, CO detectors, fire blanket and fire extinguisher and every boiler has an annual maintenance inspection.

Villas With Private Pools

All our villas have their own swimming pools with sensational views either over gardens and pine trees, the golf course, or overlooking the ocean.

Villas With Shared Pools

Based on the traditional village style, these are adjoining properties situated around a large swimming pool. Set in beautiful surroundings, these are a great option for a holiday with all the benefits of a villa holiday but at a lower cost. These are often a more favourable option for families with children as they can make friends with other children nearby.

Holiday Apartments

Our apartments are all beautifully furnished and again will be minutes from a large swimming pool. Our apartments are great value without sacrificing style and comfort.

Why Book With Us?

We pride ourselves on offering our guests the best possible service. We are happy and have the time to talk to you about our different villas or apartments to ensure you have the perfect property for your holiday, so if you have questions on what would be best for you give us a call or send us an email. Our dedication to ensuring your holiday is a great one is why so many of our guests come back year after year.
