Overview

About the property

This older style property is in a central location, in a residential area close to the popular Praia d'Oura and centre of Areias de Sao Joao. Praia d'Oura is approximately two miles East of Albufeira. It is within walking distance of the beach, restaurants and shops and is an excellent choice for families with young children or teenagers.

The house has been completely refurbished to a high standard and it's newly decorated. The accomodation is divided into two areas.

First floor: Living/dining room/open kitchen, 1 double bedroom, 2 twin bedrooms, 2 shower rooms.

Ground floor: Living room/Kitchenette( not for cooking, light meals only), 1 double bedroom en-suite, 2 twin bedrooms, 1 bathroom. This is not available for groups of 6 or less people.

Enclosed garden with swimming pool, barbeque, poolside shower and wc.

If you would like to rent a Motorcycle there is a place near by called VESPA RENT where you can do this or look them up on www.vesparent.com

Transfers: We have a regular driver who does the transfer to and from Airport for us as he knows the house and is reasonable, a minibus for 8 is € 60 and a taxi for 4 €45 one way only. You might find it cheaper but they don't drop you outside the house but at certain local points.

Praia Da Oura is famous for the 'strip', a long avenue with a wide selection of restaurants, bars and nightclubs. This makes Praia Da Oura suitable for all types of holidays, whether you are looking for a peaceful break on a golden beach or nightclubs till dawn!

There is a good selection of golf courses within a short drive and water slide parks and a zoo marine for the children.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Myself and a group of friends stayed at Casa Malindi in May and had a fantastic holiday. The Villa was well maintained, beautifully decorated throughout. The Kitchen area is well stocked and brilliantly equipped for a large group of 12. The Pool area was gorgeous, with plenty sunny spots and shady areas for the non sunworshippers of the group. The BBQ area and outside table provided plenty space and seating for us, with a little area as our private dancefloor. Fantastically situtated, on a quiet back street but only a short walk away from the bustling 'Strip'. The Owner and her staff, incuding the pool mainatinence and the cleaner, were very helpful and answered our emails and queries without hesitation. We will be definitely returing to this Villa. Members of our group have even commented on how much they would like to bring their own families for a holiday. A big thanks to all involved, especially with your help in arranging our transfers to and from the airport. A lovely Villa, you will not be disappointed.

Great Villa in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Arrived 1st June and villa was all ready for us. Plenty of room in each bedroom. Kitchen was nice and clean and there was even the beer chilling in the fridge that we had requested. Pool is superb, a bit cold when first in but very refreshing after that. Close to bars, restaurants and shops and just a short taxi ride to the old town for even more bars restaurants and shops. Its the 2nd year running we have been here and am hoping to make it a hat trick next year.

Spacious, clean villa with all facilities you need

Our group thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Malindi, our second visit in 2 years. The pool and outside space really complements the villa and was very welcome on hot days!

Great for family group. Near restaurants and beach

  • 5 of 5

Layout of villa was perfect for myself and family.

The upper floor bedrooms suited one son, wife and 3 children with 2 shower rooms. Lower floor accommodated myself, other son, wife and 2 children with 1 ensuite and 1 bathroom.

The pool was good size(although pretty cold} but the children loved it.

Beach. restaurants and shops within a few minutes walk.

We also had perfect weather so all family enjoyed break.

Great villa for a 50th birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

We are 10 ladies between the ages of 39 to 53 celebrating a 50th birthday. The villa and pool were lovely and exactly as described on the website. The villa, pool & area around the pool were very clean. We loved the fact that the villa was split into two annexes with a small kitchen and living room on the ground floor which was really handy for those staying in the Bedrooms on the ground floor. The bedrooms were actually larger than they appeared on the website. The kitchen was very well equipped with every utensil you could want. The pool was a great size with plenty of umberellas and shady areas for those that didn't want to lay in the sun. The location was perfect just a couple of minutes walk from the 'strip' and around a 15 minute walk to the beach. We all had a great time and would definitely return to this villa when we next visit this part of Portugal. We can also recommend the nightclub Libertos that we visited a few times during our stay - It is shown on the villa website.

Fab villa for hen weekend!

  • 5 of 5

13 of us stayed here for my hen do for a long weekend in June. The villa was perfect and the location was great. It was set slightly further away from the strip so it was quiet but only took two minutes to walk to the strip. The rooms was large and the beds were comfortable - couldn't have asked for a better villa for my hen do and would definitely come back!

Highly recommend it!!

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

We were delayed so didn't arrive at the villa until 3am but the instructions for key box etc were very straight forward. The villa's description is spot on. The villa is very spacious for the 9 of us (3 mums and 6 teenagers). The kids loved having the separate lounge and the pool was big enough for us all to cool down in. It is in a very lively resort so it was perfect to be able to return to the calmness and quiet of the villa when needed. The shops, bars, restaurants and beach are a short walk away and we did get the little yellow train into the old town which was great value.and very easy. The house keeper, cleaner and pool man were excellent. We received our security deposit within a week of our return. We would highly recommend this villa.
