A home from home.

  • 4 of 5

Great location . Very close to the old town and the beach. Lovely outside areas including a charming courtyard at the back equipped with bbq. Beautifully furnished with everything you could need for a relaxing stay. Andy the manager was available at all times to answer any queries and give advice.The pool was a little walk away but was lovely and peaceful - felt like our own private pool.Albufeira has a lot to offer with great beaches,good restaurants and plenty of activities if you are so inclined. Weather was fantastic even though it was the beginning of October- not a cloud in the sky! Found a fantastic bar not far from the apartment called Sal Rosa. It was quirky with a fabulous traditional tiled terrace overlooking the ocean and served the best cocktails. All in all a great holiday.

All you need in Albufeira

  • 5 of 5

Contact with the owners beforehand was easy and prompt. The manager in Albufeira made sure that everything was well arranged, pick up from the airport was very handy. The place was reallly clean and everything you need was provided. The outside areas are really nice for relaxing. The walk down to town and the beach is short, the walk back is a little bit of a climb but no problem at all

Thanks for the brilliant service!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to submit a review as it's important for others to get 'up to date' feedback from guests staying in our apartment (especially those coming back for another stay) so they can make an informed decision, so we really appreciate you doing this. We take great pride in our apartment and the care of our guests and this reflects in the work we, along with Andy & Nikki, put in before and during a stay to ensure all our clients (like you) are 100% happy so they can enjoy their holiday. We are glad you had a great time (again) and look forward to having you come back and stay with us again in July 2017 (your dates have been reserved in our diary). Kind Regards Rob & Kim

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment everything you need for a perfect holiday. Close to beach, the square and a supermarket 2 minutes walk down the road. Me and my daughter stayed here for 9 days, it was lovely and clean with everything you would need for a perfect holiday, we cooked a couple of times in the apartment had loads of facilities, there's a BBQ in the back courtyard we didn't use but handy if needed. Great wifi and large tv with English channels. We used transfers with Andy and Nicki who were very friendly and very informative about places to go in Albufeira. Great value for money with plenty of space and comfortable beds. Would def recommend staying here. Had a brilliant holiday in lovely apartment.

Great location and excellent value

  • 5 of 5

Just had a great two weeks at Rob's apartment. It is in a great location with three supermarkets and half a dozen bars all within 5 mins walk. Walk into old town and beach about 10 mins.

The apartment was just as advertised, very clean and the bathroom like new. We had sunshine on the front garden area from crack of dawn until 3.30 {not bad for mid April}.Only used the rear courtyard a few times as we preferred the front of the property. Andy, the property manager, did our airport transfers and could not have been more helpful. My wife is allergic to perfumes etc and the whole team of Rob, Andy and Nikki went to great lengths to accommodate this for which we are very grateful.

We enjoyed our stay very much and wish we had booked another week.

Owner's Response: Firstly, thanks for taking the time to write your review following your stay as its always good for other potential clients to get accurate feedback from other staying guests. We believe customer service is very important, so having Andy & Nikki living locally means our guests have complete confidence when booking that throughout the duration of their stay they will always have someone to speak to close by to assist them (if required). We always endeavour to do our very best to accommodate any client specific requests (such as yours) or other requirements whenever possible. We are pleased you both had a great time at our apartment and hope to have you come back to stay with us again very soon. Kind Regards Rob & Kim

Location

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach is the famous Fisherman's beach (approx 250m) which you can actually see from the apartment communal doorway or from the road just along from the apartment. A stroll of approx. 5 minutes takes you right to the new sea wall and walkway area which you follow along down to the beach or continue on to Old Town Square (approx. 500m). The Square has been extensively improved over the last few years to accommodate the vast number of visitors to this beautiful part of the Algarve.

Travel:

Faro airport is just 30 minutes away by car. Car hire is not necessary for your stay due to the apartments location but if you are intending on exploring the other beautiful beaches and places of interest then a car may be more cost effective for you. We can arrange airport transfer for you (please request at time of booking) a small fee will be payable for this transfer directly to the driver.

Distances:

Albufeira is made up of many areas to appeal to different tastes. The Square, which is reached within 10 minutes, has numerous bars, restaurants and shops with street entertainment in the summer months. The Strip, famous for the nightlife and bars is the other side of Old Town, far enough away to not be disturbed by noise and near enough by taxi (approx 5-10 mins) should you wish to experience. Other attractions nearby include Zoomarine, Slide and Splash, Algarve Zoo and various boat trips.

Further Details:

Very close by is a newspaper shop, a local Alisuper supermarket (approx. 5 mins), cafes, bars and many restaurants accommodating a number of cuisines. The Square (approx. 500m or 10 mins walk) in the centre of Old Town hosts a number of interesting shops, banks with ATMs and public telephones, as well as more bars, cafes and restaurants. Equally accessible is the new marina, which hosts a growing number of bars and restaurants too, thanks to the recently completed walkway overlooking the ocean all the way!

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: The secure rear courtyard makes this property particularly appealing for those with young children as access is only gained via the bedroom patio doors. Equally appealing is the fact that the front sun terrace, and this area, act as 'sun-traps' during the summer months and are perfect for alfresco dining, particularly with the use of the built-in BBQ. We believe that every feature of the apartment has been carefully thought out and designed for your comfort and relaxation. Located on a quiet one-way street this apartment provides a 'perfect base' for enjoying all the delights that Albufeira has to offer (for example; The Square, Fisherman's beach, the new marina and a host of restaurants, cafes and bars). Local supermarket a short walk down the street. Room fans provided and wall heater fitted. Non smokers preferred but in the event that you are a smoker please smoke outside using either terrace - ashtrays are supplied. Free WiFi access. Now with air-conditioning (optional extra) Outside: This unique apartment benefits from a private sun terrace to the front of the property (which is above street level and has a partial sea view) with stone table and bench seats (ideal for breakfast, lunch/dinner or evening meals outside). It also has a secure and pretty courtyard area to the rear, which includes a number of colourful plants and a brick built barbeque (for your sole use). A table and recliner chairs make this 'the perfect area' to dine outside during warm evenings. External lights illuminate both areas and solar lights set off the planted area to the rear. The courtyard houses a built in cupboard where the washing machine is located along with mops, brooms and a bucket. A clothes drier and pegs are also supplied. Although the apartment itself does not have a pool we do however have a membership to a private local pool which is only a few minutes walk away (approx. 500m), and is available for our clients to use included in the rental fee (so at no extra charge). Utility Room: Washing machine housed in external cupboard along with cleaning utensils (mop, bucket, brush etc.) Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen included in the price and the apartment is cleaned after a one week rental and linen changed. Other: A small hall area houses another double wardrobe (clothes hangers supplied) for extra storage with drawers and a digital safe for your valuables should you choose to use this. Sun loungers are provided (along with pads) for your personal use and comfort.
