About Karen Wainwright

We live in the UK with our children, but love to escape to Portugal, as often as possible! With the flight being only 2 and a half hours and the resort being less than thirty minutes from the airport, it makes it all very easy. We hope you will enjoy the villa as much as we do!

Karen Wainwright purchased this villa in 1996

Why Karen Wainwright chose Algarve

We have been visiting the Algarve since we were children. We bought this lovely villa in a perfect location away from the road and with beautiful views over Tennis Valley.

Vale do Lobo is a great resort with lovely restaurants, bars, beaches and golf courses.

What makes this villa unique

We have renovated the villa and put in new bathrooms, kitchen, tiling, TVs with sky, wifi and air-con. You will love it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Absolutely perfect for our golf and tennis tour!' - Hugh Lenon.



'You could not ask for a more comfortable villa' - Chris Foden.



'Just a quick note to say thanks for use of a wonderful villa - we just returned home having thoroughly enjoyed our trip! If anything, the pictures online don't do the villa justice! We found it brilliantly located in the resort and perfectly suited to our needs with a young family.' - Lidia

Exactly as advertised very clean and comfortable. A great vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Even before we went the information provided was excellent and filled us with confidence. The owners could not have been more helpful and their response time to the smallest of questions was exceptional. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending both the villa and the owners to anyone considering this villa as a holiday destination. Thank You Both For A Great Time.

Jim & Catherine.

Lovely Villa, can't wait to go back.

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was clean, well equipped and perfect for a family holiday. from the moment we booked the Villa the owners were fantastic. we received so much information from them before we left regarding the villa and the local area that it made our stay so much more enjoyable. they even helped us with making bookings for the local golf course with a discount.

The pool was great and the kids loved it, it was a good move to pay the extra to have it heated at this time of year.

The only thing we didn't do and wish we had was hire a car. it is definitely a good idea to have one if you have young children, although the local taxi's were great and were always ready to pick us up within 10 minutes.

overall a great holiday in a great location in a very nice Villa. we can't wait for our next visit.

Thank you for our 3 weeks of peace in your villa.

  • 4 of 5

We took a risk staying in the Algarve in February and March, but it is beautiful. The fields are full of wild flowers and the roads are empty. The villa is charming, really well equipped and furnished and the location is perfect. Everything is within easy distance and our walks to Marias and along the beach were just lovely. Cannot recommend it enough. Thank you for the thoughtful touches.

As always, terrific!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property or it's next door sister on a number of occasions in the past and as usual found it in perfect readiness for our arrival. The property sees the sun all day and on this visit we chose to have the pool heated, good move! The area is well provided for eating out and as usual we revisited a number of favourites along with some of the newer offerings. I will leave the reader to discover their own because in truth there are very few poor restaurants in the local area. All in all another great holiday at the Wainwright property and we intend return in the Autumn as usual.

Perfect in many ways

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for just over a week at Easter. The villa was great, spacious, well furnished and had everything you could possibly need. The location was superb, right in the middle of Vale do Lobo. The tennis courts right beside and had a great time watching all the tennis. The pool whilst quite small was heated and perfect for our small children.

We ate in a number of times and the bbq was great to have and eating out easy with wide range of restaurants on the road to Almancil.

Good information provided, and easy to organise with owners.

We will definitely be back and would look to stay here as first preference having stayed in many overs the years in the location

Ideal holiday villa

  • 4 of 5

The property certainly lived up to the description and photos. Location is ideal, a nice stroll away from a beautiful beach and restaurants. The setting of the villa, overlooking the tennis courts,made for interesting viewing during a tournament. There is also a very convenient cafe bar and excellent Chinese restaurant on the complex, just a stone's throw away.

The villa was immaculate and furnished to a high standard.

In all, we loved this property and would certainly recommend it to others. We will definitely use it again.
