About Nini

I am of Portuguese nationality, but lived in the UK for the passed 45 years. I am originally from Lisbon, where my family still is. I feel very much part of the English heritage but when the plane touches down in Faro, something warms my heart and I think 'I am home'. Married to Raj (born in Mauritius) for 43 years with 2 loving children, Carlos and Sonia and now a much wanted and loved grandson. I am very much a DIY person. Love to do all sorts, carpentry, sewing, baking, gardening, etc. I am a very busy bee! The apartment in Albufeira is very much my project and I love to spend time on the computer to answer any queries about it.

Nini purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Nini chose Albufeira

Back in Jan 2004, after my retirement I went on a girls holiday and stayed at Clube Albufeira. We had a lovely time. I felt so peaceful and relaxed that when I got back home I urged my husband to go to Algarve and invest in a property there. We went back in May and looked around different places, but my heart was set on the Club Albufeira. I really felt at home there. Far enough from the crowds to feel we were in the countryside, but not too far from the sea and town. We purchased the place in September and immediately started to update it. New floors, new kitchen & new bathrooms and a new lick of paint. It's home from home now and by the lovely comments we have received on our guest book, we think we have made a nice comfortable space to be enjoyed by all.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is in good location, just in front of the Restaurant 'O Pavinhao', which over looks one of the 4 pools within the complex. It is also a 'stones throw' away from the main Reception where you can exchange money, find information, book events and arrange transport.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much- we had a wonderful time in your apart. It was quite perfect and even better than we had expected. It is very spacious and comfortable with every possible convenience. We were especially impressed at everything that was available to us to use from a number of glasses to all the TV and gadgets. We couldn't figure out how to use the oven/cooker (we will leave instructions). Maps were very helpful, weather fantastic. We look forward to

visiting again in the future. Mr. G. Bowden. 11-7-2007

Thank you so much for making Terry an I so welcome in your apartment and one we felt at home in. We had fun cooking with the BBQ and sitting in the garden area with our drinks.

Beautiful big apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment. Very clean with loads of space for big families. Everything we needed and more. Wish we could have stayed longer. The veranda was my favourite place. Opavillos restaurant is a must so friendly and lovely food.

Nini was a pleasure to work with and gave me so much information and helpful advice. I hope to return very soon. Thank you Nini it was a pleasure to rent your gorgeous homely apartment ☺

Ideal family holiday, everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic time again at this wonderful family apartment, all the home comforts you would require. Renting this apartment apartment feels more like your borrowing someone's home, as opposed to renting a minimalist rental.

It's the second time we have used this apartment, and we have always made to feel welcome, the owner being very courteous on each occasion providing 2nd keys and a safe.

The location is excellent, close to all amenities on site, and walkable distance to town, however there is everything on the complex you could need for a fabulous holiday, the restauraunts are very good with a wide choice. Love staying here & would have no hesitation at staying at thi apartment again (probably next year)

Our second visit was as good and relaxing as the first, our children and grandchildren have echoed this in the past. Every thing catered for, weather warm an sunny and such a relaxing time.

Well done Raj and Ninita.

Sorry to be back home from this luxury loved and cared for apartment the facilities were 5* only down side it was difficult to venture out from all the superior home comforts that Raj and Nini have provided but when you do the four pools are lovely and the food at the restaurant opposite is excellent and the portuguese lady who attended to our culinary needs was so nice and friendly. This is a perfect base for exploring the beautiful beaches and town and we would not hesitate to recommend this apartment. Go to the restaurant on the beach front in the old town (with the little flames) celebrated a birthday there was superb and If you do get a rain shower go for a pastry at the patisery near a chemist its next to a road but a real treat Our 5th holiday in this region and we prefer to try different places Portugal has become hard to beat particularly the beach at Salgados I could sit on this beach for ever (could go on and on will have to go for 10 days next year 7 days wasnt long enough thanks to the owners Raj and Nini it was marvellous x
