The story of RENT4REST started at our family ́s beach house in Sesimbra. It was built by my parents in 1984, and it’s where I spent most of the weekends and vacation, in my childhood and youth.
It was in this house that my brother and I learned how to ride a bicycle, how to swim and lived so many other happy moments. 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.
