About the Owner

We never imagined we'd own a holiday property as we love to travel and explore new places. We had our first holiday in the Algarve with our little boy, then 2. We stayed in one of the 6 properties that make up Ocean View. We had a fantastic time. It got us thinking about how relaxed family holidays would be if we knew what to expect when we got there. The idea of going somewhere new and different made our little boy rather anxious. 2 years later we returned to Praia da Luz having decided to try and buy a property. We couldn't quite believe it when Ocean View 4 was available to buy just when we were visiting. Having compared this to lots of other properties, we just couldn't beat the location and view, so peaceful and relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"I'm very happy to confirm that we stayed at Ocean View 4 last February (2012), and the house was lovely, exactly as described except possibly even better than in the pictures - wonderfully light and spacious. It's in an ideal position, on a very quiet road with glorious, uninterrupted sea views and five minutes easy walk from the town centre. Jane, the property manager, and her husband, do a great job of keeping the house clean and well-maintained and were very helpful with local information. Our family had a thoroughly enjoyable stay, and have re-booked for another week this year."

Great location - Basic minimums

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for 4 nights September 2016. House has great views overlooking ocean.Loved the quiet area and location.Town house style with terrace and good size.

Amenities were minimal...and place needs some TLC..

Master shower needs mounting redone. Shower head doesn't,t hold in place and water flow either burning hot or cold...Needs a regulator...

Towels are very small and need to be changed..They were white at one point...

No garbage in master bathroom. Needed a small plastic bag for waste.

On terrace,no umbrella to shelter from the sun.

Dishes available were ok but not sufficient.

Furniture in living room uncomfortable and dated...blankets over stained cushions...

In summary.It was acceptable but could be a lot better addressing some of the above...

Owner's Response: We're so happy you enjoyed the location and the great views overlooking the ocean. It's is so lovely to just sit and enjoy the peace, quiet and ocean! Thank you so much for your very thoughtful feedback, we take all feedback to heart. For the terrace, we had been having so much trouble with the umbrellas...they break, they are difficult to move around, they blow up in the wind etc, so a couple of years ago we chose to invest in the automated retractable sun shade to cover the whole terrace. We found this to be a great solution. For the shower - sounds like it needs work so we will get Jane to have someone in to look at it. There used to be a garbage can in the master bath so we will make sure that returns to it's rightful place! Towels are a european bath size which sound like they have had some work to do this summer. We replace them every year so that will be addressed. I'm surprised about the dishes, every Spring, Jane takes aa full inventory and I know this past Spring we replaced a lot of items. Perhaps we lost more than we realized during the season. For the living room, the sofas are on our list to replace. We just had a big investment in an all new air conditioning system so the sofas are next on the list Thanks again for your feedback, so glad you enjoyed those great views!

Calls us back year after year

  • 5 of 5

We're here now. Seven times it eight years. Either we have very little imagination or we love the place. It is very much the latter. Perfect location. Spectacular views. Enough to do or not do if you're that way inclined. We are! Sitting in the garden now, taking a break from Grisham, watching the boats and listening to the sea, louder than usual this year but no less relaxing for it. We're leaving in a couple of days, never a nice thought. Solace taken though in the knowledge we'll be back.

Ocean View 4, try it, I guarantee you'll like it.

A bit of heaven in Luz

  • 5 of 5

The property is accurately described. Lovely place. Clean. Over looks ocean (no beach, but no beach promised). So relaxing. Set up is great. Jane met us and explained everything. Great customer service. Would return again! Thanks Liz and Jane

This property is located in a small village of Luz. You really do not need a car other than to visit the countryside and other towns if you like. Luz has a beach, restaurants, small shops and markets. Really enjoyed our stay.

Fabulous villa for a wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Weather not as warm as we might have expected but this is no fault of this marvellous villa that provides everything one could wish for to make a wonderful holiday. It is well equipped with great attention to detail, even down to pool towels being supplied. The villa is ideally situated within easy, flat walking distance of the village centre. The attractive sandy beach is just a few more minutes away. Luz has many good quality restaurants (make sure you book). We tried several and were never disappointed. The underground car parking at the villa is a huge bonus and the unrestricted sea view is just amazing and must make this villa have one of the best positions in Luz.

We hope we will be able to return sometime soon.

Excellent clean and spacious villa overlooking the sea. Views fantastic 5 mins walk from Luz centre

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully located villa overlooking the sea and only 5 mins walk from centre of Luz. The owners were very helpful before we went and provided a vey welcome pack as our flight was delayed and we arrived at midnight! The villa is spacious and well equipped with a well maintained garden providing sunbathing opportunities and a shared pool close by. We went over new year and had excellent weather which contributed to a fab stay. Definitely coming back ASAP!!

We just love the location. A view to enjoy and photograph time after time. Walking distance to the beach, restaurants and bars. Far enough away from everything to be peaceful.

From the Owner

Ocean View is truly a view you'll want to photograph and enjoy day after day! You will also enjoy the spaciousness of the inside of the villa. Even when the villa is full with 6 adults you will still feel like there is plenty of space for you all. The upstairs balcony is a great place to hide away and read your book. The shared swimming pool is in a lovely location again with a fab view and it can be a bonus that the noise of the pool is set far enough away that it won't disturb. For people with very young children, not having a pool immediately outside your sliding doors can be a relief, no need to worry the little ones will venture out on their own. We visit twice a year at the beginning and end of the season to enjoy a holiday and to check the place over. We take pride in knowing it is well equipped and well presented.
