Guestbook comments from the owner

Wir haben 2 herrliche Wochen in dieser wunderbaren Wohnung mit ihrem großen Balkon verbracht. An der Ausstattung fehlt absolut nichts. Es war alles sehr gepflegt mit wöchentlichem Wäschewechsel und geschmackvoll. Als nette Geste empfanden wir die bereitstehende Erstversorgung. So bald möglich werden wir wiederkommen.

Im "Capri" haben wir sehr gut gespeist, wenn wir nicht zu Hause gekocht haben.

Elegant, well-equipped apartment

We spent 2 glorious weeks in this beautiful apartment with its large balcony. There was absolutely nothing missing with the facilities.

It was all very well maintained with a weekly change of linen and nicely ecorated.

We thought the waiting welcome pack was a nice touch.

We will be back as soon as possible .

We have dined very well at The "Capri", if we did not want to cook at home.

Clean, bright, well stocked and efficient

  • 5 of 5

We loved this modern updated apartment, and even though we didn’t get in until late, Alvaro was there to greet us and there were a few staples in the fridge. The beds are comfortable which is my first criteria on vacation. We were unlucky with the weather April 7-15 but would definitely come back to enjoy the lovely walks and views on the ‘Ria Formosa right outside the door. There is a little traffic noise on the bedroom side which faces quite a busy street but overall an excellent choice!

Lovely Place in a Lovely Little Town

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Linda Hunt's condo over the Christmas holiday. Obviously, no one has control of the weather & unfortunately, our hopes of sun and temperatures in the 60's & low 70's during the day over winter break was not in the cards for us. There was a front that just wouldn't leave with temp's staying around the 50's during the day with drizzling rain. The front, of course, left the day we needed to head back to Lisbon. The day we left Fuseta, at 10am, it was 70 degrees F and people were walking around in shorts. So, going to this area of Portugal at this time of year was a learning curve for us. Many shops and restaurants were closed for the season, which actually isn't so bad if you're looking for quiet and peaceful walks at sunrise and sunset. Also, because of the choppier seas during this time of year and lack of the huge summer crowds, there wasn't a lot of fresh fish options, especially the freshly caught sardines my husband was so looking forward to. Linda's condo was lovely and the kitchen was top notch with lots of fun amenities. The pots and pans need updating though. The nonstick surface on all were scratched and worn and not very nice to use. This is an easy fix though. The balcony from the condo is lovely and if you sit close to the wall, you can see the inlet. The condo is in the middle of the building, not seaside front so the views are not the greatest looking out the windows. Also, another recommendation would be to put lined drapes in the windows. The yellow glow of the street lamp came blazing in every night through the sheer curtains and because of safety/fire reasons, you can't use the electronic metal storm shutters to give you shade from this light. Alvaro, Ms. Hunt's "go to" person, was very nice and responded quickly in answering our questions by texting him through Whatsapp . The internet connection was very good and the location of the condo is excellent. Walking distance to all bayside restaurants and cafes. Fuseta is a charming little sleepy fishing village. It is also only two hours from Seville, Spain so to find a bit more action for our bored 15 year old, we drove there for the day and rented Segways. So, to sum it up, this condo had all the bells and whistles to make our stay very comfortable during a not so great time, weather wise. This part of Portugal is very beautiful but next time, we will shoot for the warmer seasons.

Owner's Response: Hello Pam, Many thanks for taking the time to review our property and your comments, in particular in respect of the pots and pans, were very much appreciated. As you said the pots and pans are an easy fix but something that we should definitely have picked up before now. We have taken this on board and Alvaro is sourcing some new equipment for us in readiness for our next guests. I was a little surprised by your remarks about the curtains as this has never been mentioned before. I can only assume that our previous guests were comfortable using the shutters, which I must confess is what we do when we are staying at the apartment. However, this is something that we do need to consider and I will look at alternative options when I go over in February. I am sorry the weather was not kind to you, it makes such a difference when the sun is shining even if it's not baking hot. It sounds like you made the most of it though and hopefully it hasn't put you off going back to Fuseta at some point in the future. Thank you again for your review. Linda

Fantastic apartment in a front line beach location

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful modern spacious apartment with everything you could want from a holiday home. A private terrace with barbecue for the fresh fish from the local market. Air condition in all rooms. A number of restaurants on the doorstep overlooking the estuary and its stretch of beach. Definitely going back.

Nice place to be

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended! This apartment is truly home with all the accessories you could possibly require, also tidy and clean. It is well located, very close to all the amenities and within easy walking distance to the beach, ferry etc. We have had a very good time with two children for 2 weeks in July. Especially, we appreciated very much the kind contact in advance for preparation as well as in place when we arrived. We have enjoyed the terrace each morning for breakfast. Fuseta is a nice place to stay for a family, not to big but everything around. We even did not miss a car and preferred the local train instead.

Comfortable modern apartment near the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week in Algarve. The apartment is really comfortable and well equipped. The most important is that you feel at home there. A kitchen area is huge and has everything you might need. We spent most of the time around a large table on a spacious terrace. All rooms have air conditioners that was extremely important in August. There are two or three umbrellas and a lot of beach towels. Fuseta is a pretty quiet fishing village, especially in the first half of the day. However, there were pretty loud concerts during 4 out of our 8 evenings. On top, a road under bedrooms' windows is pretty noisy, so leaving windows open at night was not an option. However, it was not really needed as nights were still hot and air conditioners worked properly. The windows block noise pretty well and we had an excellent night sleep. Besides concerts, a small bazaar and some restaurants Fuseta has nothing to offer for entertainment. However, we did not expect miracles and planned some trips around. The best nearest nice place is a small town Tavira, just 15 km away. We also had trips to the West coast (ca 1,5 h drive) and a picturesque shore near Lagos and Alporchinhos (50 min - 1h 15min drive depending on the place). Spain is only 40 km away and we visited also Seville (ca 2 h drive). The downside was an extremely high temperature - ca 38 C. Nevertheless, it was great. In my opinion, a car is a must to enjoy the place. Travelling is one thing, but the other is shopping for food. Fuseta's main supermarket is a couple km away. We also tried local fish market and some bigger stores in other towns nearby. To note, car rental prices are really attractive in Portugal and might be as low as 10 EUR per day for VW Polo. The last but not least is the ocean. The nearest beach is quite ok if you do not have time, but I do recommend taking a ferry to an island to get to the real ocean. It will take just 10-15 min including a walk to the wharf. Nevertheless, make sure that you return before 6:30 pm, otherwise you might have to spend up to an hour in a queue during high season.

To summarize: I do recommend this outstandingly comfortable and spacious apartment both as a springboard for an exploration of Algarve and Andalusia, as well as a nice quiet harbour for enjoying the ocean and vhino verde.
