Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

Elegant villa with loads of space. 3 bedrooms with the master suite being separate and upstairs. Very well equipped kitchen, lots of crockery, pans etc. Dishwasher, although we didn't use it. Washing machine as well. Internet service was very good. Photos on website are accurate. It is in a nice neighbourhood and the property is well-cared for. The weather wasn't great at the beginning which meant we had to use the heating which was a bit expensive, but we were glad there was heating. Cabanas is a lovely town a little less touristy especially in winter. Loads of restaurants to choose from and all excellent. The people in town are so friendly & helpful. Villa in easy walking distance of the whole town. Highly recommend this villa and if we were to go again we would have no qualms about renting it again.

We had a day at a "Taste of Algarve" a cooking and eating experience just outside Tavira which we thoroughly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you Carrie. It makes very happy to know you enjoyed your holidays in my villa. I loved having you and I almost felt responsible for the bad weather you had most of the time, also quite unusual. It was a real pleasure having you and you will always be welcome.

Wonderful villa w pool, close to beach and town

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully maintained villa; front and rear garden; spacious rooms; plenty of space for a family of four with Grandma as well; all the facilities we needed.

Teresa was attentive to all our needs, and was very friendly. The villa was comfortable, with everything we needed, and no more than two minutes from the sea front.

Great sized pool; with a garden front and back, so plenty of space for the boys to play while we enjoyed the sun.

Cabanas / Conceicao is a small town with a lovely feel, and with a very pleasant boardwalk promenade, and plenty of good restaurants, with a couple of little supermarkets, and all the major east Algarve tourist attractions are very accessible.

I'd highly recommend.

Nice and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Really relaxing two weeks in Portugal watching the kids jump in and out of the pool. The villa was a great size for a family of four and the garden is of a great size to let the children loose! Only a 2 minute walk to restaurants, shops, supermarkets and the beach. Lovely 2 weeks, many thanks Teresa.

Nice but a bit tired

  • 3 of 5

We have just spent two weeks at "Coco Loco" in Cabanas de Tavira, one week with our adult children and partners, one week with other family. We were celebrating our Ruby Wedding Anniversary, our daughter's recent wedding, and our son's engagement. The owner was very kind and left us a bottle of bubbly to help us celebrate!

The villa is very central, just a short walk to the main boardwalk and nightlife, cafés, restaurants. It was very well maintained on the outside, garden watered every day, pool cleaned weekly, a lovely environment to sit and enjoy the sun and al fresco dining. There is a lovely, shaded terrace by the pool, quite private, and a roof terrace which we used in the evening ( too hot during the day!).

The inside of the villa itself is very spacious and displays lots of beautiful artwork, sculptures, pictures and ceramics - the owner has very good taste in art! The kitchen is well stoked with crockery etc., microwave, dishwasher, and lots of little extras to be found in the cupboards. No grill pan, unfortunately, or roasting tin, but there were lovely earthenware casseroles which sufficed.

The bedrooms , especially the master en suite, were clean and well presented, as were the bathrooms.

On the down side, we felt the inside of the villa was a bit "tired" - the suite in the lounge was not the freshest, the door handle to the sun roof kept falling off, despite our numerous attempts to fix it. In the master bedroom, there are odd curtains, one of which was very faded - a feature by the interior designer, apparently! The bed sheets ( though beautifully laundered ) were old and faded - all in all a bit of a let down, compared to the high standard of the exterior of the villa.

Also cleaning, even weekly, is NOT included in the price, and no cleaning materials were supplied - worth bearing in mind when booking!

With a little bit of an update, we feel the villa would better reflect the rental charge.

Perfect villa holiday

  • 5 of 5

I have recently returned from a three week stay in villa co-loco in cabanas near tavira in the eastern algarve.

The villa was spacious with a beautiful pool area and very well maintained gardens, we all had a wonderful time, the villa was very well equipped with everything we needed for cooking, having BBQ's etc and just a very short stroll away were excellent restaurants, the beach here in cabanas is lovely with a small beach bar and parasols with beds if you wanted.

Overall we had a brilliant holiday staying in a beautiful villa.

Activity and Interests


Cabanas beach is at a walking distance from the villa and to get there you have to take a fishermen's boat across the estuary which belongs to Parque Natural da Ria Formosa. The journey takes a few minutes and is vey pleasant and relaxing. There are several other magnificent beaches with golden sand near by all easilly accessible by car. They all have the EEC blue flag for cleanliness and pollution free water.


Cabanas is only 35km from Faro International Airport and a few kilometres from Spain. The Eastern Algarve is considered to be the most unspoilt and picturesque part in the Algarve. The town of Tavira, about ten minutes by car from Cabanas is recommended for its historical past, Roman architectures, medieval castle,38 historic churches and its four beautiful bridges spanning the Gilão river dividing the town and allowing for spectacular riverside life with restaurants, caffes public gardens


Cabanas is near everything you might need: interesting places, restaurants, cafes and even a fabulous daily market in "Tavira" where you can buy fish straight off the boats and fruit and vegetables from the local farmers. Spain is only 25 minutes away by car and you can even plan a day in fantastic Sevilla.

Further Details:

In the villa you will find a specially made booklet giving you all sort of information and indications about places to visit, restaurants, beaches, and all you might need to help to have a good holiday.
