About Jamie

We are an English/Canadian couple who on early retirement 10 years ago, decided to live in the beautiful Eastern Algarve.

Jamie purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Jamie chose Cabanas de Tavira

We chose Cabanas as it offers a natural beauty, incredible beaches, many quality golf courses, great restaurants and friendly atmosphere, with all the amenities one would need for a great holiday! We love the area so much we have bought other apartments here.

What makes this apartment unique

Cabanas apartment is only one street from the sea front promenade of Cabanas. Our private roof top terrace as well as two other large terraces are a treasure. Spaciousness, comfort and all you need for your get away is what we offer. We look forward to hearing from you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband & I spent 3 weeks in Portugal & had a wonderful time. The apartment is clean, well maintained and perfect size for two people. We could have easily stayed for a longer period of time if we had the chance. You have access to two balconies & a rooftop sunbathing area. You can easily walk to the local grocery store & there are numerous golf courses in the area You will find Jamie most welcoming available for any questions or problems you may have. Bren & Gord


Just wanted to let you know that Katie I had a fantastic time in Portugal apartment was lovely, we recommend it to anyone! Tom


We had a good time in the apartment still nice to be in the centre of the village! Many thanks. BevPaul

Fantastisches Appartment!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren sehr beeindruckt von den fantastischen Terrassen! Man konnte den ganzen Tag "draußen" verbringen, da es eine Terrasse zur Seeseite und eine zur Landseite gibt - egal, wie der Sonnenstand ist - man findet immer einen schönen Platz! Das Appartment ist sehr sauber und der Inhaber (bzw. bei unserem Aufenthalt sein Freund Ian) sorgte dafür, dass alles, was man benötigt, vorhanden war. Das Appartment liegt direkt gegenüber einer Snackbar mit gutem Frühstück und neben einer Bar mit Tanzfläche, so dass auch abendliche Aktivitäten in nächster Nähe verfügbar waren. Wir haben uns 2 Wochen lang sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne wierder.

A Very Special Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about the apartment and Cabanas. The communication with Jamie and Ian (when we arrived) was superb throughout.

The apartment is cosy but still feels spacious. A perfect retreat for days spent relaxing yet still being close enough to enjoy the beach, eat out at restaurants and get the little essentials at the various shops in the village.

We loved it.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at the Apartment, everything was beautifully clean and well presented. Dealing with Jamie was a pleasure, she took care of everything and even booked my transfers to and from the Airport. Ian was also on hand to welcome me and see me off, nothing was too much trouble for him. I am looking forward to returning.

Once again a great stay over Christmas and the New Year, apartment fantastic and even better than described.

The added bonus this year was almost four weeks of unbroken sunshine went home with a great tan.

I holiday alone and always feel completely safe in the apartment and out and about in Cabanas.

Another added attraction this year was a box that allowed me to access all English TV and great films, could keep up with Emmerdale!!

Jamie was great as usual and when she was away at the end of my stay Ian took great care of me, coming to say goodbye when I left reluctantly at the end of my stay.

Will return next Christmas can't wait.
