Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved it here, so close to beach and Old Town Square, no hill for a change, on a quiet Portuguese residential street, We almost felt like one of the neighbours after the sun turned us a little bronze, Apartment really neat and we loved the Roof Terrace, barbecued 5 times, Wonderful, will be back! Thanks Andy, Maurice and Jean.

Our 3rd time here with our family, fabulous location, We love the quaint street its on, no fast cars, don't worry about the kids when walking to the beach for a change, and really cosy inside at night, kids love it! Thanks Andrea, Mark and family.

We wondered where he was taking us, such a small street and stairway off the street, but hey, an Aladdin's cave, what a roof terrace, We have had our best holiday yet in Albufeira, the booking, personal pick up was all so efficient, thank you, took all the stress from us, and thanks for sorting us with a Dentist! Joan and Freda.

Super Holiday Apartment 5*

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband, daughter and mum in August. The apartment is perfect. Ideally located being only a short walk from the beach, restaurants and bars. With a small shop downstairs and a supermarket within a very short walk - what more could you ask for. The kitchen had everything we needed as did the lounge area. We thoroughly enjoyed the roof terrace - what a view! It did get quite hot up there but that didn't bother us. Wi-Fi was available for a small charge - which we didn't mind.

The swimming pool was great - plenty of sunbeds, clean and well maintained. The pool bar served some fantastic snacks and ice cold drinks with shaded areas to sit under when it go too hot. We didn't mind the walk to the swimming pool - it's not that far at all.

I would definitely recommend this apartment. Andy could not have been any more helpful - a wonderful guy. We will come back and stay here.

Perfectly located in Portugal

  • 5 of 5

My brother, my Mum and I went to this beautiful Apartment in July. It is perfectly located, only a few minutes from the beach where you either take the lift or you go for the fit Version and take the steps. We went to Restaurants 3 times, for the only reason that we did not want to be in a Tourist crowd but to enjoy our Family Holiday. There is a tiny grovery shop only 2 meters from the Apartment with the most necessary (open from Monday till Sunday), and then there was a big grocery shop with normal opening hours and everything you Need for a perfect vacay 5-8 minutes by foot. We prepared breakfast in the kitchen and on the less windy Mornings had it on our rooftop terrace with a priceless view over the sea! TV and Wi-Fi were available, though we did not use neither of them. The kitchen was fully equipped and we only had to buy coffee and oil. Hairdressers, many towels and even umbrellas (which was extremely important for my brother who wasnt used to the sun at all).

You can reach the Harbour within 15 minutes by foot, maybe even less. From there, we went on a beautiful catamaran tour which I can absolutely recommend! A few more minutes by car and you'll reach the next beach (or just take the bus).

If youre Walking 5-10 minutes you are in the middle of a touristic street with many People, Tourist Shops, Restaurants and bars. So even partying would not be a Problem.

I can definitely tell Familys to go and enjoy Andys Apartment. It has been super easy to book it and he was always helpful and available.

Have a nice stay in Portugal!

Brilliant holiday

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this property for 5 nights and would highly recommend. Andy collected us from the Airport, such a lovely gentleman who really looked after us. Nothing was too much trouble, from giving us a run down of the location to recommending a great wee place to eat. The property is in a great location, handy to everything and what a beautiful view from the roof terrace.

Super Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The Apartment was lovely and cool, our sons enjoyed the WiFi and Satellite TV which kept them entertained in the hot afternoons (July). The Apartment was very clean and had the all the home comforts you need. The location was fantastic and so near to the beach, the shops and the old town square which was full of bars, restaurants and street entertainment.

Our favourite place to eat was McAli’s Bar and Restaurant - it was more expensive than most of the others but it was well worth it, the food was delicious and a lovely setting, especially on the root terrace.

We would love to come back and stay here thank you ever so much Andy for your warm welcome and picking us up from the airport.

Car: not necessary


2 mins walk to Albufeiras immaculate 2 local beaches, maintained on a daily basis by the local council.


Faro is some 30 minutes drive away. If you require, customer collection and return is arranged for a small amount and you are taken right to the door with the apartment keys (handed to you at the airport). If you wish to hire a car then arrangements are made to meet with apartment key etc.


Many local towns and villages are within driving distance, however, Albufeira does have countless bars, restaurants and shops (including supermarkets) within minutes walking distance, a hire car is really not necessary if you prefer to just relax!

Further Details:

Albufeira offers a superb range of shops, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. Should a car be required, we can provide information on local companies who offer a good service and competitive rates. There is always someone on call, usually the owner himself who personally makes sure everything runs smoothly, living only 5 mins away!
