About the Owner

Having lived in Portugal most of my adult life & loving this part of the Algarve, especially Lagos, Porto de Mós was the obvious choice as it still retains its typical Portuguese charm and as this is where I live it seemed the right choice to provide high quality holidays right here

Fantastic location and very spacious home

  • 4 of 5


1. FANTASTIC location...perfect..walking distance to beach.

2. Kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, glasses, and silverware.

3. Washer/dryer is very convenient.

4. Plenty of seating both indoor and outdoor for dining.

5. Pool and pool deck is spacious and clean.

6. Bathrooms and kitchen are very nice and spacious.

7. Villa is very spacious.


1. Bath towels (2 per person) are thin and poor quality (we asked for more and got 2 more per person for the week).

2. Bedding is poor quality...very thin and worn sheets. Pillows were not great.

3. I hired a cleaning person for 85 euros (midweek) but later saw in the welcome book it should have been 15 euros per hour. I had 2 people for 2 hours. Also...they did not change the bedding.

4. WIFI was an extra charge (and it didn't work well)...40 euros. The WIFI that is included is only in the living room of the house.

5. The music system was an extra charge...40 euros

6. The ping pong table was an extra charge...40 euros

7. Beach towels were an extra charge...5 euros each

8. There were no beach chairs/umbrellas to bring to the beach.

9. No noodles or anything in the pool itself.

10. Beds are small...perhaps they are full size, not queen.

11. I called after 3 weeks for the security deposit refund and it was refunded immediately. Not sure if it would have happened if I didn't inquire.

All in all it was a fantastic villa to stay at because of the location and the house itself. I would rather pay more in the initial price and not have to pay extra charges once I arrive. I also would like more luxurious towels and bedding. However, I would stay here again...I would just be better prepared.

The Perfect Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a lovely stay here. The house is beautifully planned & built, in a superb location. It is modern & as new, extremely spacious & is finished to a very high standard indeed. Lovely pool (did not need heating in July), big rooms/en suites & fully air conditioned throughout. The beach is on your doorstep, with lovely restaurants & Lagos just a mile away. If you want a holiday in the sun, with true quality accommodation, this is the one ! 10/10.

Beautiful property, great location, wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated the 50th wedding anniversary of our parents with a week long stay for 11 people aged 3 to 70. The house is in a great location - easy access to the beach and 2 restaurants. Each of the 4 bedrooms are beautiful appointed with large bathrooms, plenty of storage and vert comfortable space so we did not feel we were on top of each other. The kitchen and living room were large and also had plenty of space to spread out. The kitchen was well stocked with glasses, dishes and cooking utensils. There is also a nice charcoal grill that we cooked several meals on. We did not use the annex room attached but it would have been good if we had teenagers who wanted their own entrance and space. The annex has a bunk bend and double bed in the entry room, a porthole window and door to the pool level and a large bathroom with plenty of storage space, it also has air conditioning. The property manager John Griffiths was extremely helpful both from the initial inquiry stage to our arrival. We have rented other properties from him over the years and continue to return because of his professional manner and assistance. The pool was great - we had it heated for the younger kids and as the week went on it was too hot - John helped us turn down the heat so we could all enjoy it. The pool service also visited to add water and clean it for us during out stay. We rented a snookers and ping pong table for the older kids. They were placed in the garage and were a perfect way to entertain the kids after they were done swimming. The property is well maintained and has beautiful views of the ocean and area.

The furniture is very modern and fits the open airy spaces. We did have 2 younger kids that we had to keep an eye on so they didn't get to the pool without an adult. They stayed in the 2 upstairs rooms so they didn't have poolside access from their bedrooms but we also had to made sure the balcony doors were closed at all times so they didn't sneak out. And another minor point - with the lovely marble floors the dining room chairs made a loud noise for the rooms downstairs - I might add sliders to the chair legs to keep down the sound. These are two very minor details from an otherwise perfect vacation.

Luxury villa Casa Mar

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spacious villa close to beach. Interior was cool, light and airy with numerous spots outside to find one's own private space. Only a couple of hundred yards to two very acceptable beach front restaurants and a five minute drive into Lagos. Our family party of ten had a very happy time.

This was our 2ND stay at this villa. We previously visited in February 2015 and it was top of the list for a return trip. Relaxing, peaceful and oozing quality. Fully equipped and finished to a high standard it provides a spacious and comfortable retreat. I wouldn't hesitate recommending both the location & the villa. ( just try not to book the weeks I'd like :). )

The property was spectacular.

  • 5 of 5

We came to Lagos to celebrate 3 family members' birthdays. The view was incredible, we felt very relaxed sitting on the deck looking at the Atlantic ocean. We grilled a full meal and had everything necessary to do so. Each of us had our own room with bathroom. John and Carla were very attentive to our needs. We could walk to 2 restaurants on the beach, Antonio's was wonderful. I highly recommend Casa Mar. We also ate at Don Sebastaio and it was delicious. The marina was fun. Great vacation location and the Portuguese people were very gracious. Thanks John
