About The Owner

My name is Orla and my husbands name is Glen. We have 2 boys Ian 21 and Greg 14 and the baby of the family Bugsy (our Cavalier King Charles), aged 4, who is spoilt rotten! We live and work in Dublin, Ireland, which we love if only we could get a little more sunshine!

The Owner purchased this villa in 2006

Why The Owner chose Vilamoura

We were looking for a place in Portugal as we went on holidays there a lot and loved the people and their easy way of life. As soon as we saw our villa we fell in love, both with the villa and the location. We have tried to furnish it as a second home as we like to go over ourselves a lot, being from Ireland we don't see much sunshine here! There is so much to do within minutes of the villa, golfing, the beach, go-karting, tennis etc, with shops, hotel and restaurants within walking distance, so you can have an active holiday or just chill out in the garden in peace and quiet. The Marina is amazing with every type of restuarant and entertainment you could want.

We love the time we spend in our 2nd home in Portugal and we hope that if you choose to holiday here that you do too.

What makes this villa unique

With 2 boys we tried to think of their 'entertainment' if we decided to spend the day just relaxing in the garden, so we put a pool table, ps2, games, satallite TV into the family room. The pool at the villa is very large and is only shared by 15 other villas, so most of the time they have that to themselves, they can lark around as much as they want. The hotel is great too as they can go over there, it is just around the corner and play games, watch the football etc 'with other lads' as they tell us.

Comfortable and well decorated Vila. treat pool

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for two weeks with the family. Loved the Vila and its location right next to the old golf course.

Small condo with a dozen villas, large pool we had almost to ourselves, will definitely recommend and come back again. Thanks Glen and Orla

Ok villa won't recommend though

  • 2 of 5

We spent 10days here and upon arrival nearly had a coronary just looking at the stairs. They are lethal and especially not suitable for people with young children. I feel this should have been pointed out to us at time of booking as we stated on booking form child of 1 and 4!

Internet was not available upon request despite stating on website, and washing machine DOES NOT work. I did not go on holidays to spend days on end effectively in a workhouse hand washing clothes I expected this to work and having ask the guy for help several times it remained in that state! Linen was meant to be changed weekly and despite our stay being over the week, they were not changed.

Apart from that villa is quite nicely decorated and outside area and pool area nice although again very open and not safe for kids!
