About the Owner

We are June, Sonia and Phil and we bought the apartment in September 2007. Sonia and Phil live in Warwickshire. Phil is a telecoms engineer and Sonia works part time as an editor on a puzzles magazine. Our two gorgeous children, Arthur, who is five, and Molly, aged three, are already big fans of holidays at the apartment where they get to spend the morning at the beach, the afternoon in the pool and the evening eating lots of yummy food. June is Sonia's mum. She lives in Northamptonshire but works for Network Rail in London.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"A great apartment in a secure, friendly and well maintained complex and area. Ideal for both a relaxing 'do nothing' holiday or a good base for exploring the area. We generally did nothing and enjoyed the excellent pool facilities then took our exercise in the evenings by walking to the Marina! Apartment well equipped with lots of extras (books, toys, towels etc). Plenty of hot water!

(Naylor family, August 2012)



"We would love to go back! Loved the whole time there and did loads of training and eating good food. One of my colleagues here is keen to do something similar, is it OK to give your details? He has two young kids"

(Lawrence & Wendy, triathlon training over Christmas and New Year 2012)



"The apartment and grounds were immaculately kept and the apartment having everything we needed plus a few lovely extras like the iPod dock. The complex felt safe and secure. The pool area is fantastic, not too noisy or crowded and again beautifully clean."

(Lacey family, March 2013)

Beautiful, safe area with very well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

Family of 4: 2 adults, 2 toddlers - all enjoyed!

The surrounding area of the apartment is beautiful, it's green, it's floral and there's not a neon sign in sight.

The complex is very secure and well maintained. The people (both locals and holidaymakers) were very welcoming. We recommend A Carpa restaurant around the corner.

The apartment itself is a home from home. Extremely well equipped, so much so that many items didn't even make it out of our suitcase.

It's clean, it's spacious and the pool view from the terrace is great. It is also quite cool in the apartment even without the aircon on.

This was our first holiday abroad with our children and it couldn't have been more ideal. We're already planning to return next summer.

The owners are extremely helpful as is Alain who does the airport transfers. Top guy!

Highly recommended.

Brilliant!

Great place for quiet stay

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Sunday 6th September. We had originally booked this apartment for our 1st holiday with our 21 month old daughter in April. However due to an illness at the last minute we had to cancel. Thankfully June was soooo understanding and allowed us to re book at no extra cost at a time that suited us. This was so unexpected but we were really appreciative of this. Before we arrived they had booked a taxi to bring us from the airport and return us on the day we left. The apartment is in great condition and is a lovely ground floor apartment that gets the sun all evening from about 1pm. It's about a 20-25 minute walk to the marina but there is a road train that runs ever 50 minutes that is great and our daughter loved it. Overall I would recommend this apartment for young children as the pool is really well kept and was never really busy. Loads of toys for kids to play with and keep them entertained. Thanks to June and Sonia for a truly great holiday!

Fantastic apartment in Villamoura

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in October 2013 with our 3 children (11,11,6). We had an amazing holiday and loved the location of the apartment. We did hire a car which made it easier to get around! The area was very quiet in October, the nearest restaurants were closed so a car was essential. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable with a large ground floor balcony. There are lots of extras that you wouldn't normally expect which are very useful. A selection of DVD's, kids toys, internet, towels and useful store cupboard items. The apartment complex is lovely with well kept swimming pool, gardens and tennis court. In October the pool was very cold but lovely to sit around, the weather was gorgeous when we were there. I would definitely recommend the apartment, the owners go out of their way to ensure you have a lovely holiday.

Da Praia Aartments, Vilamoura

  • 5 of 5

Not our first visit to the Apartment and fully enjoyed our family holiday as much as last time.

All arrangements and booking with June (the owner) very straight forward and usual easy transfer from the airport arranged by June.

The apartment offers everything you need and is very clean and modern. Probably one of the best positioned, being ground floor with a nice view across the pool area from the outside dining/sitting area.

The apartment is part of a small complex and is key code gated and very secure. Many of the other apartments are resident and privately owned and therefore not crowds of other holiday makers on package holidays. The whole grounds and gardens are very well looked after and there is a very large pool, sun beds, toilet facilities and an excellent tennis court. Nice to sit by the pool all day and have a picnic on the grass.

Great location for us as it is a very quiet area with easy access to a Spar and other local shop within a 5 mins walk. Would recommend Spar (turn left out of complex and left again). Fresh bread and everything you need.

It takes about 30 minutes to walk to Vilamoura marina and it is a really pleasant walk in the evening along a specially constructed, well lit and garden landscaped pathway down the centre of the main road in to town. Never got bored of doing this walk and walking around the marina with busy shops, bars and millionaires yachts etc Lovely atmosphere.

Would recommend the apartment to anyone for a very relaxing and peaceful holiday - Oh and fantastic Algarve sunshine.

Perfect bliss!

  • 5 of 5

This complex is secure, quiet, well tended, clean and very close to everything you need in Vilamoura. A lovely stroll to the fabulous Marina in the evenings to eat at one of the many excellent restaurants. Supermarkets within a couple of minutes walk and a couple of decent local eateries too. Beaches are fab, so many they never get crowded. I will certainly be visiting again. My Grandchildren love it too and look forward to their next visit.

Fabulous Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just lovely. Plenty of space, all mod cons as well as being spotless and well maintained. The location is quiet but not far from Vilamoura centre although a car is very useful, particularly when shopping at the supermarket. My partner, his 19 year old daughter and myself had a wonderful holiday and would recommend this property as it has everything to make your stay very comfortable and relaxed. Thank you.

Location

From the Owner

We visited the Algarve for a family holiday to celebrate June's 50th birthday and had a wonderful time so when we decided to take the plunge and invest in a holiday rental apartment, Vilamoura seemed an obvious choice. Phil already enjoyed playing golf so he was impressed by the amazing choice of courses on offer and June has had lessons so she can join in the fun - even little Arthur is a budding golfer now! We all love the great beaches and the friendly atmosphere in the Marina.

Facilities

From the Owner

We love how much space there is around the pool with the pretty gardens, palm trees for shade and plenty of grass for the kids to let off steam without bothering anyone else! With a supermarket, cafés, restaurants, and bars just 2 minutes walk away we often find we have no need to venture much further than the end of the road on a relaxing break. But if we do want to head further afield, the stroll down to the Marina is very pleasant or we can take the road train which the kids just love! We can also arrange bike hire, car hire, day trips and golf games at the booking agency just around the corner. We've made the sure the apartment is really well kitted out for young families as we know that happy children equal happy parents!
