About the Owner

I've now taken early retirement, having worked full time in central London for more years than I care to remember! The house was new when we purchased it back in 2004.

We are keen supporters of CHICKS (Country Holidays for Inner City Kids) a charity that provides holidays for disadvantaged children. We will donate 5% of all rental income to CHICKS in 2016.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly as described and very spacious for 7 of us including 4 teenagers. The house was very clean , well maintained and had everything we needed for our stay including a thoughtful welcome pack .

The boys had their own basement bedroom and bathroom with a games room next door. The TV and WFI were great . We spent most of our time around the lovely pool using inflatables from the house . The local shop and cafe with tasty pastries is a 15-20 min walk away. We played tennis and used the driving range a the 5 Star Hotel opposite the house and the kids were regulars to kiosk by the hotel pool where they could buy ice creams. We didn't hire a car but it was easy to book a taxi from the Hotel which we did most evenings to eat at the Marina in Vilamoura. Jenny was fantastic and provided all the information we needed about the house and local area.We had a lovely stay and not a cloud in the sky for 9 days !

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described on the website and is very well equipped and maintained. The provision of bread, milk, butter, juice, beer etc., with coffee/tea in the cupboards on arrival was a nice touch and enabled us to settle in quickly. Situated opposite the 5 star Vila Sol hotel meant it was very easy to organise taxis, and the selection of great eating houses and small shops that included a bakery/cafe and grocery store approximately 15-20 mins walk away, meant the hiring a car was not required. The property is also only a stone's throw from the golf clubhouse and 10 mins taxi ride from Vilamoura. The owner of the property has also been extremely helpful throughout and we would have no hesitation about recommending this Townhouse to anyone seeking a beach or golf holiday on the Algarve.

Fantastic house for families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house with our 3 kids (14,10 & 6) for 2 weeks. The house is spotlessly clean and in a brilliant location beside the hotel and golf club. The kitchen is really well equipped and makes cooking a pleasure. Kids loved the basement games and all the inflatable pool toys. TV and wifi were superb. Sunset Villas is a very family friendly location with kids of all ages staying there. Our kids made so many friends and we only saw them when they were hungry. Jenny is a great host and her helpful tips & instructions made everything stress free. We're already planning our return.

Great spacious house, lovely resort.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house with all required amenities, and nice welcome on arrival. The house is near the pool yet far enough for any noise to be cancelled out by the lovely water features. Husband played golf, great course, also the bar looked nice in the hotel opposite but we were to busy to get there in the end. Visited Vilamoura harbor (recommend Salmora tapas restaurant on the road behind the front). Also visited Loule and the beautiful Praia da Falesia (Beach).

Five star - we'll be back

  • 5 of 5

This luxurious villa is even bigger and better than it looks in the photos! It felt spacious even when occupied by our family of two adults and four big teenagers! The interior is finished to a very high standard with a beautiful combination of sheer curtains, smooth wood, cool granite, textured tiles and warm terracotta’s. The three bathrooms and downstairs cloakroom meant no queuing for showers after swimming. It is very well equipped, from cool bags in the kitchen, pool toys in the basement, and a small library of DVDs and books in the living room. I did worry that our teenagers might not have enough to do as the villa is located in a quiet area – but I need not have worried. They spent hours in the pool and when they eventually returned to the villa they were more than entertained by the combination of free WiFi (essential for teenagers!) and lively table tennis & football tournaments in the basement games room (which was well used when it was too hot to sit by the pool). And there were plenty of activities just a short drive away, including teenage night-life! Our teenage nephew was particularly pleased at having his own personal suite (the basement bedroom and bathroom) all to himself - as he quite often ends up on a bedsofa in other smaller villas! This Villa is brilliantly located for exploring the Algarve, from beaches to mountains and only a 30 minute hop from the airport. Car hire is a must, and the nearby toll road makes everywhere quick and easy to reach. We recommend the spa village of Monchique and the peak of Foia for views over the mountains, and Praia da Marinha which was well worth the trek down the stairs to the sandy beach. The Villa Owner has provided a really useful book that lists all these places and more, with directions that actually work (far better than our satnav!), and the recommended restaurants list took the gamble out of eating out. Finally the Owner’s policy of not booking back-to-back makes such a difference as it takes the stress out of packing up and leaving. I can’t recommend this villa more. Our teenagers loved it and we will definitely be back!

A relaxing and chilled holiday

  • 5 of 5

I had the most wonderful holiday at sunset villas. The complex is very well maintained, quiet and relaxing ( before school holidays ) The house has all mod cons - home from home and again is spotlessly clean and well maintained. Everyone that we met couldn't have been nicer - a really positive vibe here. The owners have left a really comprehensive review of the area with idiot proof directions to various local attractions. You do need a car but the driving is easy once you get into the swing of it. Fabulous holiday - already looking to book next year!!

From the Owner

I usually provide a welcome pack, so that you don't have to shop immediately you arrive. The house is well away from road and traffic noise. We also have a basement garage that houses a full size table tennis table and table football machine. We have free private broadband and UK TV programmes, that includes a 7 day 'catch up' feature, so you can still see your favourite programmes, but at a convenient time. I don't typically have back-to-back bookings, even during the high season, so guests can leave the house at a time that suits them.
