About the property

This two storey semi-detached villa with its brandnew luxury exterior features a private large heated pool, a separate children's pool section and nature views and is a walkable distance to the beach and ideal for a family or group of friends.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD

This semi-detached two storey Villa is located at the end of a quiet residential cul-de-sac in the resort of Dunas Douradas, between the luxury resorts of Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and Dunas Douradas Beach Club, in central Algarve.

The Villa backs straight onto the Pine Trees and therefore affords beautiful views and more privacy - a privilege enjoyed by only a few houses in the resort, which will make your stay a truly relaxing experience. A 10-15 minute walk takes you to nearby Garrao beach, its beach front restaurants and the ocean.

The pinewood surroundings can be enjoyed from the South facing living room, the deck beside the private pool and BBQ area, or from the first floor balcony window.

The Dunas Douradas clubhouse with its bar, restaurant, large communal pool, tennis courts and mini market is a one minute walk away.

Europe's finest golf courses of Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo are just a 5 minute drive away, as are a host of additional activities such as horse riding, watersports, go karting, cinema, shopping, bars, restaurants and water parks to name a few. See more details in the location description.

THE VILLA

This air-conditioned* two storey semi-detached villa with a private large heated* pool and a separate children’s pool section is ideal for a family or group of friends wanting to get away from it all without being isolated.

The south-facing exterior receives sun all day long and offers the ideal space for relaxing in the sun or dining al fresco, with a large ceramic-tiled pool including a kids section for your children’s enjoyment.

A large sun sail, sun loungers, a dining table, a BBQ and a glass wall to the pine trees round off the outdoor experience of the villa. The pool and outside area have been completely refurbished in 2015 and are the star attraction of this beautifully kept property.

On the inside, the villa offers an open-plan living and dining area with a fully equipped kitchen and lounge area. The living area features a wood-burning stove, cable TV, DVD, portable stereo and wireless internet. Sliding doors provide access to the private outside, deck and pool.

The ground floor bedroom features twin beds, a wardrobe and sliding doors to the outside. It also has its own adjacent bathroom.

The first floor master double bedroom with ensuite full bathroom features a double bed, wardrobe and beautiful views over the private pool and the pine trees beyond.

The bedrooms do not have a shared wall, which makes this villa a great option for two couples sharing and/or holidays with children.

Perfect holiday home from home

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the villa and resort is fantastic. There is usually something that doesn't quite live up to the description - but not in this case! The villa is lovely; really well equipped and comfortable and the outside space is superb. You feel like you are at a luxury resort with the view out to the pines and your own well cared for pool. But it is the little extras that really make this place special. There are two cupboards full of outdoor toys. Nespresso capsules have been pre sourced for you so you can enjoy a good cup of coffee. There are DVDs ready for a rainy day. The wifi works wonderfully. The showers are great. The beds are comfortable. It is clear that Lynn the owner has a great eye for detail and really cares about providing a great holiday. And finally, Dunas Doradas itself is lovely. The beaches genuinely are a walk away. The communal pool is lovely. There are tennis courts if you want to be more active or a spa if not. And the mini market sells freshly made bread and croissants each morning. What more do you need??

Great location in Dunas Douradas

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this villa. The weather was perfect from start to end and Lynn made sure everything was perfect on arrival. The property was clean and tidy and I would recommend this property to anyone. When there was the odd problem Lynn got it sorted immediately and was always on hand to help, giving excellent customer care. The beach and plenty of restaurants are all within walking distance (we would particularly recommend Xenia).

We had a really love holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Susan, we are very happy you enjoyed the villa and especially the pool heating so much. If used as directed it really is a like a big bath tub! As stated in our ad, we do always recommend car rental since the airport transfer plus a couple of taxi rides tend in the end to work out more expensive. This is the case for all villas in the resorts. We are always on hand to recommend sites for car rentals if requested. Hope to receive you again in the future!

Comfortable, clean and private villa with new patio and pool area.

  • 5 of 5

The pool area was perfect for a family; clean and modern and with a large pool with a deeper end with enough space for a competent swimmer to swim lengths plus an additional smaller side pool to sit in that would suit smaller children, non swimmers or those who just want to read a book whilst sitting in the water!

The house was modern, comfortable and clean and had all the amenities required to make it a true 'home from home'

The sandy beach and amenties at the Dunas Douradas beach club are a short walk away although the pool at the villa was perfect so we spent most of our time there

The owner, Lynn, is well organised and thoughtful and gave us a warm welcome and plenty of recommendations of how to make the most of our stay in the area

I would recommend this property to friends and relatives

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Trudi! I am glad you enjoyed the villa so much. It is great to hear that the effort we went through to design a pool that offers more than your usual plunge pool is appreciated!

Great family stay with excellent pool

  • 5 of 5

Good spot to explore the Dunas Douradas surroundings. The villa itself is very complete and great for families. Lynn, the owner, is very welcoming and proved helpful before and after arrival. The recently added pool is a great boon, with view of the nature reserve & sun all day, in particular we liked the shallow kids section of the pool for our 2 year old. The resort is very nice- we enjoyed a few lunches at the club with its excellent communal pool or at the nearby beach. Well-supplied supermarkets are 5 mins drive away but the mini market at the club provides fresh morning bread. Our kids loved the open air cinema picnic - thanks for the suggestion Lynn!. From here we also explored a bit further afield, like the forum Algarve mall in Faro and even a day trip to Seville. All in all a great stay.

Beautifully appointed

  • 4 of 5

Great welcome, great owner, great facilities and great location. We had a brilliant week with 2 adults and 3 children (13,5,3). The villa had everything we needed and Lynn was easily accessible for any questions. The villa's pool is a real highlight, especially with the separate children's area and the provision of little extras (eg pool toys, dvds etc) meant that we could get straight on with our holiday. We used taxis rather than hire a car for the whole week as our priorities were the beach and pool but if you want to do lots of days out then a car is a better option. The beach is a 15 min walk (with children) but is huge with plenty to do and see. Zoomarine appears to be an obligatory day out but despite the ticket cost is actually really good value as there is so much to do and it's all included in the price. Overall, a really good villa in a good location with a lovely owner! Highly recommended!
