Our Story

The story of RENT4REST started at our family´s beach house in Sesimbra, that was built by my parents in 1984, and where I spent most of the weekends and vacations of my childhood and youth.

It was in this house that my brother and I learned how to ride a bicycle and how to swim and collected many other memories that marked our lives. This is a house full of memories from vacations, endless days of playing with cousins, walks on the beach, dives on the swimming pool in the summer, and in winter wonderful evenings by the fireplace. It was in this house that a little bit older, we had our friends over for weekends of fun. Nowadays with our family growing, we want our kids to have the same memories.

To allow the rehabilitation of the house, and because we like to have visits from families and groups from different countries, one day I challenged my father to rent our beach house in Sesimbra to guests.

Having guests from all over the world became such a rewarding experience that we decided to create RENT4REST and rent other properties owned by family and friends.

My name is Filipa, I`m an Environmental Engineer and Veterinarian, but presently I dedicate myself exclusively to the management of RENT4REST. I`m the one who will answer all your reservations requests, answer all your questions and doubts and most of the times I´ll be the one to welcome you upon your arrival. To help me out with the management of RENT4REST I rely on the help of my husband Filipe and my father António. We work with certified partners for services of occasional Check-in, Cleaning, Maintenance, Transfers and Tours.

We manage all our properties. Each of them was picked because of unique characteristics that distinguish them, such as great views or great location, in front of the beach, on a golf course or in the city center.

Whether you are planning a romantic getaway, a vacation for family and friends or simply a restful getaway, all our houses are furnished and equipped to make sure that you feel comfortable. Most of our houses have Cable TV and free Wi-Fi.

As parents we understand the difficulties of traveling with kids and toddlers. That`s why, in order to make it easier, we provide, for free, crib, food chair and other accessories (upon request). Some of our properties also have toys, games, kids TV channels and a babysitting service (for an extra fee)

In order to know us better, you can also read some of the reviews we got on certified booking websites like Homeaway, Airbnb, Booking.com or TripAdvisor.

Thank you for wanting to know us better, we hope to meet you soon.

Best Regards,

Filipa Leitão de Aguiar
