About Mary

After visiting Portugal with friends we decided we loved it so much that we bought our apartment so we could have a home from home in an area we loved. We regard this as our second home and have lovingly refurbished the apartment. We hope that our guests experience the same comfortable ambience.

There is something for everyone in the area, and our family looks forward to returning again and again to "our little piece of paradise".

Mary purchased this apartment in 2002

Great apartment on a nice complex

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Mary's apartment. The rooms were light and airy, the kitchen was practical, lounge and bathroom great. Being equipped with a washing machine was very handy too.

The pool complex was great. Not too busy and very clean with a good selection of food and drinks. It is cash only.

Parking was secure and convenient. Will definitely be back. Thank you

A lovely comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described on the website. It was clean, airy and welcoming and the maid service was efficient. The owner was extremely easy to deal with and answered all enquiries promptly. I would certainly recommend the apartment to friends and family. It suited us perfectly as its location was not only close to the airport but was surrounded by well maintained golfing complexes and, more importantly for us, many areas for watching birds. We enjoyed long walks from the apartment but were also able to visit other areas in and around the Algarve easily.
