About Pauline McGovern

My wife and I are two professionals. We are both in full time employment in Ireland. We have three children, one is a doctor and the other two are university students.

We visited Vilamoura, at first, on a holiday and really fell for the wonderful range of leisure facilities, restaurants and bars in this resort. We were also impressed by the cleanliness and care and attention which is evident throughout Vilamoura. The apartment itself is so convenient to everything that transport is unnecessary.

Pauline McGovern purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Pauline McGovern chose Loule region

The Vilamoura resort attracts a very nice clientele, there is none of the lager-loutish element which is so evident in many other resorts. It has a vast range of facilities and activities to offer all age groups ranging from golf to watersports.

The weather is beautiful--not extremely hot and still sunshine everyday. English is very widely spoken which is a bonus as we are not fluent Portuguese speakers although we do try to use Portuguese, as a mark of respect to our hosts.

What makes this apartment unique

We particularly enjoy strolling along the large marina every evening. Our property is adjacent to the Marina. The marina is continuously full of yachts and cruisers of all descriptions. It has shops, restaurants, bars, everything! We also love the beach, the golf, the weather and the people who are so obliging, helpful and welcoming.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"This apartment is totally convenient for those who will not have access to a car whilst still providing cool underground parking for those who do have one."

Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Great apartment in great location.

  • 5 of 5

The quality of the fittings in the apartment was apparent right away from the entrance from the landing - the lock on the door was of Fort Knox standard! Superb quality throughout and, if anything, Pauline's description undersells it. The location would take some beating - round the corner, down some steps and you are amidst the bars and restaurants at the marina, unlike most apartments in Vilamoura which are a long way out. I look forward to returning!

Beautiful apartment - very close to the Marina

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, clean and very well equipped apartment in a quiet and very secure location, but only 2 or 3 minutes walk from the main Marina area of Vilamoura. I would recommend highly. The owner, Pauline, could not have been more helpful throughout - from the initial booking to completion of the holiday. She arranged our airport transfers with a very efficient local company and even allowed us to remain in the apartment an extra few hours on our final day due to a let evening flight. She helped make our holiday an easy and relaxing experience.

Amazing apartment with a hotel feel

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in quite a few rental properties and indeed owned ourselves abroad but this is the best apartment we have ever stayed in. Initially we booked based on location and it couldn't have been better, only 50m from the marina. The apartment building is immaculate (more like a hotel) with someone on reception 24/7 and you couldn't hear neighbours/ people in the corridors at all. The apartment itself is truly home from home with details such as heated towel rails in both bathrooms and washer/dryer. We loved the jacuzzi bath and shower with jets and steam. The pool area is well maintained and wasn't crowded even in August. I have already recommended this apartment to friends.

5 Star Appartment

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to Villamora to this beautiful Appartment. The location is perfect situated within a few minutes walk to the beach and just around the corner from the marina and restaurants. Quiet location and yet so central to everything you need.

The Appartment is extremely clean, spacious and lovely furnishings. We got great use from the huge balcony which has the evening sun and the kids loved the pool which is in the garden on the ground floor.

Pauline the owner was very helpful with all our queries, taxi transfers and all the other little questions we had.

This was our first time in Villamora and we definitely intend on a return to Pauline's Appartment.

Had a lovely week here in Vilamoura and Pauline's apt was just perfect in every way. It was spotless, comfortable and in a prime location. Pauline was really informative and assisted us with booking of transfers which were first class. Fully equipped and furnished to a high standard. Beds were so comfortable. Thanks Pauline for letting us rent your apt and wouldn't hesitate to book again or recommend to friends and family
