In 2000 Anna’s parents 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 Holiday Rental Portugal [link https://www.holiday-rental-portugal.com) and Silver Coast Living were born, providing holiday rentals and property management services to property owners at Praia d’el Rey.
In 2015 Anna’s mother retired and Anna took over the businesses from her. Anna and her family have been enjoying holidays at Praia d'el Rey for years and as each of her two daughters (now aged 3 and 5) arrived, they were introduced to the area too.
From small beginnings we now have over 100 properties that are managed through Silver Coast Living,and rented through our sister company Holiday Rental Portugal Ltd to guests from all over the world, many of whom return year on year.
In 2018 we have opened a new office in Ferrel, Silver Coast Living Baleal, to provide property management services to property owners in Peniche, Baleal and Ferrel. The popularity of this area has grown and grown and every year the numbers of visitors increase, as do the number of properties that are purchased by non-Portuguese owners. With our extensive experience in property management and the skills of a strong team in place, we are well placed to extend our service to property owners in these areas.
Our enthusiasm for the Silver Coast region is undiminished and we love to share our knowledge and discoveries with guests and clients. The Silver Coast is a great base from which to explore North and West Portugal or simply to discover the ‘real’ Portugal.
Most of the team is local, living either in Serra d’el Rey or Ferrel. Anna’s ‘other’ home is South West London.
