I do not understand why Eunice and her family did not use the washing machine and the dishwasher. They are both working fine. As to the Nespresso coffee machine, if one doesn't use the adequate capsules, it may not work properly, but I never noticed that it drips. I'll check anyway, thank you for warning.
Concerning distances from the city and airport of Lisbon, in the advertisement, I give fair information about it, no intention to cheat anyone. Actyually, In summer people come here on holiday to rest and enjoy the sea and nature around and they occasionally drive to Lisbon, but the main purpose is not to visit the capital. If that is the purpose, than it is better to rent a house in the city. If Eunice had asked me I would have advised her not to choose the place.
I do feel sorry that the weather did not cooperate, but I could do nothing about it. After months with no rain, the last 1,5 month has been terribly wet.
Come back in Summer and visit Serra da Arrábida and the wild beaches in the area.
