Renting period November-December 2003

Riky to owner:

Dear Harry,

First of all we must wish you luck and good health for 2004. Sorry for our late reply: We have used the Christmas days to list all photograph.

Two photographs of us we attached, so that you can see also we have used - with much pleasure - your house.

It was GREAT! We mainly lived upstairs. Here the view was splendid. Disadvantage was, however, that it cooled rather down at night.

For this reason we have used the fireplace and electrical radiator.

In fact also we really would not know well what we would need to be improved.

(The roof will be meanwhile repaired. It has kept us a night awake when it was very windy).

We are so satisfied that we have passed on the address to several acquaintances. We have gladly made our contribution for the guest book!

A lot of greetings and who knows.... We see you again in your house.

Riky & Marius, Nienke & Jorg. Lars

Renting period April 2004

Henk to owner:

Dear Harry,

We are now 5 weeks back in Holland, but that does not mean that we have forgotten it. I just still want to say thanks for the delicious and superb house to the edge of Bensafrim.

We indeed drove to it easily. We had the best and most relaxed house so far.

When I saw that beautiful road to Aljezur, then the water was running out of the mouth, to ride this with my race bicycle.

Now I am heavily training for the Mont Ventoux on June 12. Therefore, I hope to be able to use it again with some bicycle friends.

And Viola was an absolute darling. We have eaten the last evening in the restaurant where she worked. In fact, she had her birthday that day.

Many thanks to you once again and I will recommend it to everyone, but perhaps you do not want to much renting it out.

Hi Harry

Back in the rainy Netherlands .. Is very disappointing ...

Henk, myself and the kids wanted to thank you.

We had a wonderful time at Casa contente!

If you ever think to sell the house, let us know ... anything!

 Ann, again ... in August 2012 to owner (translated from Dutch by owner):

Hi harry,
Sorry for the late response, but I apparently lost the connection from my camera to the PC, so you still have to wait before I can send you the pictures of the second bedroom
We have had a wonderful holiday at Casa ContenteSo much so, the kids really, really like to go back next year. Can you give an option for us from July 20 to August 10?
One suggestion: It would be really nice if you
by then also had a dining table and chairs for 6 people on the upper terrace.
It's really too bad that you can not eat on that little table above. Perhaps buying wooden patio furniture? :-).
Pleas write down our advance reservation option, and the pictures will come as soon as possible!
Thanks also to Maria and her husband, they do a good job!
Ann & Family
Note owner: Upper Terrace furniture has been replaced in May 2013.
