About Liz Webster

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.

Liz Webster purchased this villa in 2007

Why Liz Webster chose Lagos region

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

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."

Fantastic Spacious Villa with superb sea views!!

  • 5 of 5

Very very pleased with this villa we stayed at in Luz.

Kitchen is very large and well kitted out.

All of the downstairs has plenty of room and great views over the Atlantic.

Breakfast & dinner was always fun because of just sitting outside looking at the sea and listening to the birds....can never get tired of this.

Upstairs has 3 large bedrooms all with aircon, one with en-suite and a master bathroom.

Walk to seafront along rocks was about 1min and a slow walks to bars & restuarants was 5mins.

We have stayed in alot of villas but this is one of the largest and well furnished we have stayed in for the approx £1000 pw range (high season).

Plenty of plus points for this villa....books,Jenga,games,kids toys,videos,Sat TV, sound system in lounge, aircon in lounge and in the 3rd floor basement are waterpistols,fishing nets etc,but the biggest factor is the STUNNING sea views from downstairs and 2 of the 3 bedrooms (what a way to wake up every morning)

Downside......showers seem to go hot then cool then hot again annoying ( i like long hot showers) door locks very secure but a bit hard to open especially in the 3rd floor basement/garage door and finally underground garage for all the villas seemed to be having few problems during our stay (no problems getting in/out though) but this was fixed on a final day.

I would certainly give this villa a 9.5 out of 10 not everything was perfect (but what place ever is?) but for once the villa & location was better than expectations and we all left happy, refreshed and very sun-tanned.

Would certainly book again if in the area and say to you book here you will love it!!

Owner's Response: So happy you had such a great time and enjoyed the villa. Your comments are much appreciated. The views, the spacious nature of the villa are our favorites and we do try to make sure it is equipped to meet everyone's needs. We are heading there in October and will check on the showers.....thanks for giving us the heads up on that. We'd be happy to have you back anytime! Thanks so much.

Wonderful large villa in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Ocean View 4. The villa is a generous size and we didn't feel on top in each other even though there were 6 of us. It's got stunning sea views and is positioned so that you are only a few minutes walk from Luz centre, but you retain the peace and quiet. Plenty of bars and restaurants nearby and a 8 seater taxi is only 13 Euros to Lagos, if you feel like leaving the village.

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

we loved the location being a little out of town but close enough to walk everywhere. the unit is spacious and the view from the terrace was so beautiful, overlooking the ocean. It made for some wonderful breezes on a hot day. the apartment does need some TLC though. the outdoor loungers were really thread worn and there were no pads provided. the same for the chairs around the outdoor table - four of the six had major holes in the seats or the backs were ripping which mad them a little prickly to sit in. over all we loved the space in and out but it needs a really good cleaning. The bathroom on the main floor was awfully dirty and was used to keep all the cleaning mops, etc in it. would have been better if all the cleaning stuff was kept downstairs in the storage. Had to ask for waste baskets for upstairs master bath. We loved Luz and did like the unit - it just needs a really good cleaning.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the great location of our villa, the terrace and the view of course! You are right, it a bonus to be able to walk everywhere, and on the flat instead of negotiating that big hill in Luz! Thank you so much for your feedback, we will make sure we address the cleaning issues and get those mops placed in the basement storage. We'll also take a closer look at the chairs, they do take a beating in the hot sun all day so if it's time to replace them, we'll get onto that. Thanks again for your feedback.

Almost perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is the ideal property for a family holiday. A spacious attractive house in a quiet and convenient spot. House and private garden directly overlook the sea. Large shared pool just round the corner, beautifully done and well placed for young children.

Only negative was the bad UK TV reception but that's the BBC's fault.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and had fun in the pool! You are right, the BBC has made it a lot harder to get in Portugal now but we keep trying different ways of getting the best reception we can!!!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Had never been to Luz (...the coast or even Portugal) but loved the experience and highly recommend.

The property is spacious with fantastic views and great location. A few minute walk to town center and beach, short drive to other attractions on the coast.

Luz is a great town with some very nice restaurants. The weather in late May was perfect. We can't wait to come back to Luz and Ocean Villa 4

Owner's Response: So glad you had such a lovely time and great weather....makes that view even more inviting :) As you say, Luz is a lovely town and really well placed for visiting the rest of the south and west coasts. Thanks so much.
