Casa Pendana - Luxury Two Bedroom Apartment with Free Wi-Fi
Introducing Casa Pendana our new luxury two bedroomed apartment with stunning sea views, furnished to a very high standard. A real 'home from home'.
Our vision is to create an environment that is calming, relaxing and stylish. Picture this, after a peaceful nights sleep, throw open the patio doors and step out onto the balcony; stretch, and take in that fresh sea air. Enjoy a lazy breakfast on one of the balconies, whilst feasting your eyes on that spectacular view. The only decision you need to make today, is whether you are going to have a day lazing by one of the 3 pools or beach. Maybe you fancy a more energetic day on one of the many championship golf courses or tennis court. Or explore the many attractions of the Algarve, Zoo Marine, one of the many water parks or how about a boat trip to the local grottos. As evening aproaches, chill on the balcony with a home cooked meal washed down with a bottle of local wine. Or maybe dine at one of the excellent local restaurants. For those who seek a more energetic evening, the lively resorts of Armacao de Pera and Albufeira are only a short taxi ride away.

About the Owner
Vista Bonita is owned by Sandra & Cecil. We would like to think that we offer a real 'home from home' for all our guests. We are now in our 8th year of renting out our apartment and very happy that most of our previous guests come back year after year. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail, and are constantly striving to ensure our guests feel the apartment is their own during their stay.
Sandra purchased this apartment in 2007
Why Sandra chose Carvoeiro / Lagoa region
We fell in love with the area the minute we set eyes on it. From the beautiful little chapel that sits proudly on the rocks, above the 2 stunning blue flag beaches below. We love the fact that there is a good selection of bars and restaurants all within walking distance, so there's no need to drive after a good night out. The area is very quiet and relaxing but it's great to know that the larger resort of Armacao de pera, is a 5 minute drive away, should we want a livelier day or night. There are some amazing cliff walks just down the road from the apartment with stunning scenery.
What makes this apartment unique
All our guests receive complimentary unlimited Wi-Fi (Vista Bonita Only), bathrobes, slippers & toiletries (both apartments).

Cozy appartment with pool.
Our family had a wonderfull vacation in this well equipped appartment. There was some ekstra service such as: towels, bedding and a arrival package with some food etc. The pool area was very child friendly, and wee used it every day. Nice area with supermarket and restaurant, small cities with markets and sealife. We can highly recommend this appartment.
Appartement très très Agréable.
Nous avons passé 16 jours inoubliables dans cet appartement qui est vraiment très beau et très bien entretenu. Nous y retournerons avec Grand plaisir. Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques merci à eux pour leur gentillesse et leur décoration et propreté de leur appartement. Un Grand BRAVO. C'était génial :-)

Nice apartment in nice area!
We stayed for one week in Chris and Carol's wonderful apartment Casa Pendana. They were very serviceminded to us both before and after our arrival. The beaches nearby are very nice and not to crowded. We didn't miss anything, the apartment was well equipped. The brochures found in the apartment advised us with both practical matters about the apartment and the surroundings as with things to do around on the Algarvian coastline.
We wouldn't hesitate for one moment to return!
Just returned from a most enjoyable stay in Casa Pendana. Huge praise to Chris and Carol for the apartments most artistic decor with facilities,furnishings and equipment much more than adequate. Every need is catered for including very good Wifi. 5 to 10 minutes walk brings you to the three beaches with the cliff walk overlooking two of the beaches our favourite. The apartment is also very convenient to an excellent supermarket and several excellent restaurants.
Casa Pendana – A Fantastic Apartment in a Lovely S
My family and I have just enjoyed two weeks in this lovely apartment – a real home from home except this has stunning sea-views and sunsets. It is obvious the owners Chris and Carol have put a lot of thought into making the apartment very comfortable for guests with high quality fixtures and furnishings. There are two bedrooms and bathrooms, a well -stocked kitchen, living/ dining room and a great balcony. Everything you need for a relaxing holiday is provided including a substantial welcome pack which was a great touch. Casa Pendana is located in an extremely well maintained complex with a great swimming pool and tennis courts. Just a short walk away are the beaches and cliffs with great restaurants and the most picturesque church located at the top of the cliff.
We cannot wait to go back! Thanks Chris and Carol for a fabulous holiday.
