About Mrs Saryu Thakrar

I am married with two great kids, and find that a good work life balance is important. Hence we really enjoy our time at our home in Vale Do Lobo, it is our haven in the sun!

Mrs Saryu Thakrar purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Mrs Saryu Thakrar chose Faro

The area is safe, beautiful, clean and has people who haven't forgotten the normal kind gestures of life.

The apartment is so roomy and fills up with natural light and gives a sense of space and Portugueseness! You are not simply in a holiday home anywhere you are in Apartment Sakira which is also our home and somewhere we love dearly.

The amazing views from the top terrace to include the sea are stunning as well as the fact that this is in a unique position to all the other apartments on Ruas das Acacias as it is south facing totally!

What makes this apartment unique

A modern apartment with the Tennis Academy (2 mins) and the Beach (10 mins) at your doorstep, gives a fantastic combination all year round.

Guestbook comments from the owner

' A lovely location and beautiful apartment! Everything we needed was there. Great decor too We had stayed in Ruas Das Acacias before but your apartment being south facing was bright and airy always and with the bonus of an amazing view including the sea from the top terrace too! Mr S

'We all had the most fantastic weeks' holiday, in fact we would go as far as to say best ever. I suppose the only thing I can say about appartment Sakira is WOW!!! The pictures on the web page site do not do it justice; it had everything and more and Thank You for giving us this chance to visit it.' Mr and Mrs H

'Superb Apartment, immaculate, clean light and airy. Tastefully decorated. Great Location too where we would juggle between Tennis, Swimming, Gym and the Beaches! Want to go back!' Mr and Mrs V.

'A great relaxing break, lovely and quiet in the summer, though not too far from the lively praca. I would take my family there year after year. What a great find!' Mr and Mrs T and Family

Really impressed with this lovely apartment, it was bright and airy and really comfortable. The apartment felt like home from home, with lots of hanging space and kitchen equipment. The 2 terraces were large with with lots of sunshine, and comfortable furniture. Would love to go back.
