Excellent location and fabulous comfortable apartment. perfect holiday we will be back again! Maura Mccormick 2009

I spent 3 weeks in this apt & what a great find it was! Just a stones throw from the marina & all that it has to offer. Sonia Gordon 2010

We had a wonderful holiday in this very comfortable, stylish apt. It was spotlessly clean, like a home from home & very central to everything. Sarah Bucks 2011

Cannot speak a bad word about this apartment. Great location right next to the marina, adajcent the numerous pubs and restaurants and only a 2 min walk from the main supermarket (in case you want to rustle up something yourself). The apartment has everthing you need for a pleasant stay, very clean and well equipped. The owner is very helpfull and was much appreciated coming up to our trip. Would definetly recommended this place to anyone looking for a lovely apartment.

Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Vilamoura and we certainly could not have picked a better location or apartment. The apartment was spotlessly clean, comfortable, well equipped having everything we needed. Its location on the Marina was ideal for the many restaurants, bars, shops, and two superb beaches.

The information and assistance provided to us by the owners Audrey & Val and their manager Isobella was most helpful.

We most certainly will be returning and would highly recommend this apartment/location.

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your apartment. Its location could not be better, literally 50 seconds to the marina and even less to the great restaurants on the door step.

We loved the apartment and sitting out on the balcony each night was bliss. My wife Liz’s favorite part was the daily stroll and I do mean a stroll (around 10 minutes) to the beautiful beach. We sometimes stopped along the way for a coffee or just potter around the shops.

All in all we had a wonderful holiday and would have no hesitation recommending the apartment to anyone. Everything in the apartment was as it’s shown on your page and we will definitely be staying there again.

Pat & Liz, Carlow, Ireland.

Adequate NOT Luxury

  • 2 of 5

The bathroom is en suite so the apartment is suitable for a couple. The toilet did not flush properly, we had to manually flush using a 5 litre water bottle (I reported this to the owner). The TV receiver did not work (I did report this, the owner knew about it but didn't tell us). The picture of the view from the balcony is not accurate. The location to The Marina was good, however the apartment is at the back of the restaurants so the view on leaving the apartment leaves a lot to be desired!

We would not return to this apartment.

Owner's Response: Dear Karen thank you very much for your feedback. We appreciate any pointers that will help us to make our future guests stay with us more enjoyable. Firstly we have been running a successful business for over 8 years attracting all good reviews & happy clients with many repeat bookings. Yes the bathroom is ensuite as shown in the photograph & stated on the website. This has been rented to couples, families & friends before without a problem.We were not aware of a plumbing problem but our manager called a plumber immediately & rectified the problem. As for the tv,this is a regional problem in Portugal & we explained that we were in the process of sorting it out. We apologised that what you could watch was limited. Yes the location of the apartment is good. Thank you. The photo of the marina was taken from the balcony.And the seventh photo on this website shows the apartments exact location from the marina so we don't think this is misleading but honest. As for luxury the photos speak for themselves. And yes the apartment is also adequate in that it is well equipped for holiday makers.Compared to other apartments on the marina & in the immediate vicinity, we fee that we still offer excellent value for money. Kind regards Audrey & Va Darcy

These parks are normally open from April to September. Zoomarine (15/20 mins by car) is open most of the year, is also a full day of enjoyment for all the family, with amazing dolphins, seals/ sea lions eta as well as the superb 4D cinema screen. The Roman ruins of Cerro da Vila lie just 500 metres from the apartment & are evidence that this modern resort area does have an intriguing past - historically & geographically.


The apartment overlooks sea & marina, minutes stroll to beautiful Falesia beach. This beach is known as one of the best. Its name refers to the red cliffs which provide the back drop to the beach. Stretching about 6km west towards Albufeira, the beach is great for walks ( as well as sunbathing!) & there are cafes dotted along the way. Watersports are available at certain points on the beach. At the end you can walk up & over to Oihos de Aqua & its cosy beach. To the east is Vilamoura beach.

Car hire is easy to arrange once in Vilamoura. Free on street parking spaces provided outside apartment.


2 minutes stroll to town centre with all amenities. Children's aqua show & park only 5 minutes in taxi. Faro is approx 20 mins by car & 30 mins by bus from the marina. Faro has a nice small marina ( next to the lagoon nature reserve),pedestrianised shopping/cafe area & interesting historic quarter-one adjacent to the next & perfect for a day or half a day if pushed for time.

The apartment is on the marina which for us was of the utmost importance. Being so central one can walk everywhere within minutes. Where as most other apartments are 20/30 minutes walk to the marina, it is on our doorstep!
