Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a great holiday and your home was really lovely.I could have stayed a 3rd week I enjoyed it so much.The beach is really fabulous and the girl on site doing the activities with the children gave them a great break from the heat during the day. They really enjoyed spending time with her. My sister is going to your house in August so I have been telling her all about it! I would have no hesitations recommending your property, and we may even be back next year.Thanks for everything !

Super Villa

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a 9 night stay in this super Villa, it was home away from home, the attention to detail was second to none. It is so big and spacious so much more than the pictures, air conditioning through out is amazing. It was so quiet and a good night sleep was had by all each night. The pool area is so clean and always sunbeds available at any time of the day. Tommys supermarket down the road was well stocked each day and the fresh bread and rolls were brillant. We went to the old town most nights, if you dont have a car you will need a taxi but they are cheap. All in all we had a fabulous stay and we are looking forward to our return again hopefully next year.

Fabulous Villa

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a brilliant 9 night stay at this Villa, it was home away from home. The attention to detail from the owners was second to none. The Villa had everything you needed for a self catering holiday. The Kitchen was hugely stocked with all your essentials, even down to dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, bin bags, cooking oil, salt, pepper. The Villa its self is so spacious and air conditioning in each room, loads of storage, toilet up stairs and down stairs. Loads of fluffy towels too. The pool is super clean, no problem with sunbeds at any time of day. The Villa is a bit out from the Old town but taxis are widely available. I cannot thank the owner Bernadette enough, her quick response to each question I had etc. Looking forward to our return, hopefully next year.

Great villa and wonderful pool

  • 4 of 5

Good location, a car is essential as although you could walk to the old town and marina, a 45 minute walk in 35 degree heat would not be much fun.

Villa was clean and well equipped, air conditioning fantastic. The pool was fab, much bigger than it looked in the pictures and never too busy.

Resort restaurant was ok - nothing special but decent value.

Giant chess & draughts gave much fun in the late evenings!

Plenty to do within 5 mins drive and some lovely towns and villages half an hour away - Loule and Alte a great day out.

Booking and info from Bernadette was straightforward and prompt - we've already recommended both the area and the villa to friends and family. Thanks for a wonderful holiday!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We were delighted you and the girls had such a wonderful holiday in our villa. As you said a car is great as it gives you such freedom, but we have had guests who prefer to use the option of taxis and buses and they also managed well as the location is so central. The weather has been hot in the Algarve but I was glad to hear you enjoyed the air conditioning throughout the villa, it gives you great comfort day and night. The pools are lovely and I think because beautiful Sao Rafael beach is only a 5 minute walk a lot of guests like to go there also, and this means the pool is never too busy. There is something for everybody !! Thanks again for recommending our villa to your friends, and hopefully you will stay again in the future. Kind regards, Bernadette.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are delighted that you and your teenagers had a great holiday. It is an ideal location as you can choose to do as much or as little as you want during your stay. You can have a really busy or a really relaxing break ! I am glad to hear you enjoyed the comforts of our villa. We are always upgrading the furniture and appliances to ensure guests have all the little luxuries they would like while away from home. The resort staff were delighted that you mentioned how you found them so helpful and pleasant. We notice a lot of guests are pleased that reception in the resort is available 24 hours a day. It is very useful to be able to ask somebody for information or advice if you need it. Thanks again for your comments and hopefully you will stay in our villa again in the future. Kind regards, Bernadette.

Very nice experience indeed

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week in this lovely property. It was very clean and comfortable. Every room had an air conditioning which made our stay very pleasant despite of a very hot weather. Kitchen was also well equipped. The property is within a walking distance form a spectacular beach.

The owner of the property was extremely helpful during the whole reservation process. It was a great pleasure to to be in touch with her.

This is without any doubt a great place to stay and I can recommend it to anyone.

Fantastic Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful villa is set in family friendly quiet resort. One of the only places I've stayed where the photos do not do it justice as the apartment is much bigger than we expected. We comfortably slept 6 adults and a baby. The resort has been very well designed so each villa feels very private and quiet. The resort itself is very family orientated, with beautiful pools a tennis court, a playground and is always clean and quiet. Sao Rafael beach is absolutely stunning and is within easy walking distance around 5 minutes. It is much more family orientated and less touristy than Albuferia's main beach. My family and I had a very relaxing holiday and would love to go back soon. The only negative thing I can say is that the nearest supermarket was a little expensive but taxi's to Albuferia are cheap (6-7 Euros) where there are many larger supermarkets including an LIDL where you can buy everything you need.

Owner's Response: I am really happy that you had such a good time and that the holiday and our villa exceeded your expectations ! We have added many extras just to make it even more comfortable. It is so true what you said, it is difficult to capture in photos the spaciousness of the villa and its beautiful high ceilings. I am delighted you visited Sao Rafael beach as it is so near and is truly magnificent. The small local supermarket may be a little more expensive, but we find it very convenient to have it located only a 2 minute walk away, for any essentials you may have forgotten. And of course we love their fresh bread rolls in the morning !! I agree, going to one of the large supermarkets to stock up for the week is a good idea. Thats why we installed the large fridge freezer so you have plenty of space for supplies. We usually recommend the supermarket at the nearby Modelo Shopping Centre, but there are several nearby. Thanks again for you comments and hopefully we will see you and your family again soon. Kind regards, Bernadette.
