We do not add a lot to the rental for use of the pool. We charge cheap rental and let you decide how often you wish to go to the pool.bear in mind you have a world class beach with-in walking distance and you will spend plenty of time there.so it seems fairer not to add 7 days cost for using the pool onto your rental rate.

About ken or chris

Former scaffolding business owner but suffered a nasty working accident. Sold the business and bought 1 bed apartment,so I could regularly get the benefit of the Algarve sun and beneficial air. Loved the area so much that a bigger two bedroom apartment was wanted and keeping 2 apartments presented good rental potential. By this time it was pointless selling the 1 bedroom for a low price if you could manage to keep it.

ken or chris purchased this apartment in 2004

Why ken or chris chose Tavira region

These properties are very well located and are bright,modern and secure.Built after 2000 there are not the plumbing and drainage problems associated with older Portuguese properties.Both apartments are spacious and designed as homes to live in,rather than cheap holiday lets.

What makes this apartment unique

Due to having no mortgages we can offer more affordable rental rates whilst giving top class accommodation. Plus as owners visiting for heath reasons 3-4 times per year we can keep the properties in good order for our guests. Owners who rarely if ever visit their foreign properties do not know the condition of them,such as when a room needs decorating or items need replacing. You get the best of both worlds with us for,quality and affordability.

PWe were so happy when we arrived at the apartment - it was so warm and comfortable and had everything we wanted for our winter holiday. Shops, cafes and restaurants close by and Tavira just a few minutes drive away. We would highly recommend this apartment and location

Thank you Chris & Ken

Excellent 10 days in Cabanas

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bedroom apartment was absolutely brilliant for our needs for 10 days - 2 adults and 2 children (13 and a 8 month old baby). It's excellently located a mere 150 yards from Conceicao train station which links to Villa Real in the east and Lagos in the west. Train's were on time and quite inexpensive. We used to train to travel to Villa real a few days and then onto Spain on the ferry which was 5 euros each way for all of us, leaving you in Ayamonte in just over 10 minutes. Be sure to do this.

There is a convenient supermarket 200 yards up the hill past the Church which is reasonably stocked and priced, with great fresh bread. Watch for queues and narrow aisles!!

Cabanas itself was a mere 10 minutes walk and had an array of great places to eat, with a good range of dishes across the different establishments. The seafront was very quaint and we indulged in an after dinner ice cream almost every night. Very peaceful and very safe at all times.

Cabanas beach required a short water taxi which again was very cheap - 75 cents each way. A simply stunning beach awaited us. We also visited Tavira which was a nice place and worth a visit.

Finally Ken and Chris were absolutely brilliant to deal with and answered any queries promptly and accurately. Extremely professional and only too happy to help. They arranged for Sophie to let us have access earlier than anticipated to the apartment, which was greatly appreciated after an early morning flight. Sophie was very informative about the area and getting about, and very kindly arranged out earlier morning transfer when leaving.

Great apartment, very well located and genuine and kind people to deal with!!

Lovely relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely apartment with everything you could ask for and more, exactly as described on the site. Ken very helpful from start to finish with information about the area, directions etc., excellent customer service. The apartment was welcoming, spotlessly clean and the kitchen equipment made cooking a real treat not the usual self-catering experience! Lovely little extras: helpful information about local shops, attractions and restaurants, books and DVDs to use. We just hope our glowing review doesn't attract so many bookings that we won't be able to book again for next year!

1 bed apartment Conceicao

  • 5 of 5

I realise this review may make re-booking a little harder but here goes...it was superb... everything as you would want it to be ...very clean ,well decorated ,furnished to high standards etc.... just what we wanted.

Near the N125 road but far enough away to not be heard , a 2 min walk to the supermarket , bank , chemist , cafe & bar (which sells English newspaers)

Tavira was less than 6 euro in a taxi , also the many excellent restaurants & bars in Cabanas were a 3.5 euro taxi if the gentle walk or the meal was too much....

A 30 min drive & 3 euro ferry & you are in Spain...The owners have a large selection of maps & guide books so you are never short of things to do or places to go. We went in late September and it was still quite busy without being full on , you have pleanty of room on the beach without having to wait for the ferries etc...this is one holiday and apartment we WILL repeat.....

I would recommend this apartment

  • 4 of 5


As the price was so reasonable i worried about the standard of the accomadation but i need not have worried. The apartment it's self was spacious & airy as well as being well furnished.

The area was convenient for both beaches & towns locally

I would recommend using these apartments

Large Spacious Flat

  • 5 of 5

We had a very happy time here in this ground floor flat. Flicking through the other reviews everything they say is true about the large dimensions of the flat. I would just add that the flat is cool inside - which we needed as the temperature edged over 30c end of June - and my partner remarked how clean it was too.

So a good base to either explore the eastern Algarve or just relax in Cabanas. If you have very young children you will be impressed also by the number of playgrounds in Conceicao and Cabanas.

I would whole heartedly recommend the flat.

Owner's Response: We Ken & Chris are truly thankfully for such a nice review.Especially as the writer endorses earlier quite glowing reviews. We do strive hard to deliver affordable prices with top quality accommodation. We know sometimes people feel something has to be wrong if it is so cheap.Far from it! We have kept overheads very low and entirely manage the property ourselves .We can say with hands on hearts that we visit at least three times per year and do what needs to be done to keep everything good for our clients. It does keep us busy and so often forgetting to ask for reviews but we will strive to remember more often as they are so important in helping potential customers form an opinion

Car: not necessary

Better than any condominium pool and much cleaner. The Hairy Lemon Pool and great restaurant and bar is now Open! Spend Christmas in our 1 bed apartment and get 4 course xmas dinner for 35 euros.What a Deal!. Plus,Horse riding, Golf, Bowls,Tennis,AWARD Winning Beach. You will be out of the noise of the many nighttime activities of Cabanas but close enough to walk down and take part. Cabanas shuts the roads down at night so people can partake safely in all the fun during summer.Situated in the Ria Formosa the apartment is in an urbanization rather than a resort. It is very pretty and safe.. 10 minutes walk from the lagoon, marina and beaches of Cabanas East Algarve. Tavira an old Roman town is 4 km away. A small railway station is 2 minutes walk from apartments,very cheap and you can go to many towns all along the Algarve, very cheaply. Horseriding,Bowls and golf and Swimming pool all nearby.Superb tourist town of Montegordo close by. Zoomarine and water sports within easy reach. Day trips to Seville which is 2 hours away can be booked on the urbanization as can trips to Lisbon. Golf course 3 min walk from apartments. Albufeira is just over an hour on the train. Guadiana river is 20 minutes by train for ferry crossing to lovely Spanish town Ayemonte. Many more beaches and towns within easy reach. Impossible to run out of things to do. Even a ferry ride over too Morrocco usually two day trip. You are in Conceicao as said 1km from Cabanas (10 minutes walk).Conceicao has everything you could need for a holiday or longer lets. Shops are less than 5 minutes from either apartment and include a good and cost effective supermarket; chemist;seafood shop;bars;a cafe,2 restaurants;local store,doctor;dentist and a hairstylist etc;etc. The pool is less than five minutes walk and has a restaurant and bar,plus internet cafe. Just five minutes drive is a modern shopping mall with cinemas. For walkers there are numerous local walks and the Ria Formosa nature reserve.

Benamor golf 5 minutes walk.
