About Sheila Robinson

Casa Concha has been owned by the Robinson family since it was built in 1971 and is a much loved second home to us. We love to spend time there as a family as it is ideal for all ages and very safe for our five young grandchildren. We especially love the garden and pool which is wonderful to relax in and have the all important BBQs - the men in our family are all excellent BBQ chefs! When we can tear ourselves away, the short very scenic walk to the beach and Praca gives us a little exercise. The bars and restaurants down at the Praca, with the night time live entertainment from June - September, are very popular with us as well.

Sheila Robinson purchased this villa in 1971

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to say that we all had a great time in Portugal and your villa

was perfect and very lovely. We will definitely be looking to book again. August 2014

We wanted to write and thank you for allowing us to use your villa. Both families had an excellent holiday and the villa was brilliant. There was so much space, lots of extras to entertain the children and the pool was great for all of us.

In your letter you asked for any feedback. From us the villa is perfect and worked well for the 2 families. The only thing we could have done with was a bit more fridge space. I think that we eat in more than most and also like our drinks cold which is why the fridge was always full. However, it was just one thing we all agreed on. Thank you again for letting us use your beautiful home. We are hoping to rebook next summer but we just have to check holiday dates before enquiring. August 2014 (NB An extra fridge/freezer has been added now).

We had a wonderful time with the family and as you can imagine lots of poolside antics. You have a beautiful home, it's a real treasure with location too. We didn't want to come home, 7 days is too short but we were spoilt having the time we had. July 2014

Our 6th stay at casa concha

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th stay and yet again had a wonderful time

The villa is kept beautifully and the gardens this year were stunning

Christina as usual was fantastic (even done the ironing which we had left to dry) would love a Christina at home

Sheila thank you for letting out your villa we feel like we have a timeshare and I am sure we will back for a 7th visit

Debbie and family

Perfect villa. Gorgeous garden and pool area- even the photos don't do it justice. It's perfect for a little one running around and the pool is heated!

Great interior with all necessities and Christina the cleaner who comes in is lovely, very unobtrusive.

Only short 15 min walk to Praca and to local resort shop so great location.

Would recommend (and return myself again and again)

Thanks Sheila!!!

We stayed in Casa Concha in late April and had a brilliant time. We went with our two children (6 months and 3) plus grandparents and a couple of other family members and the villa exceeded our expectations.

Firstly The communication with Sheila before and during the trip was excellent and she really did go out of her way to ensure everything was in order.

The villa is in a great location to explore Vale Do Lobo and surrounding areas with a fabulous garden and pool area. We had the pool heated and it was nice and warm (even warm enough for our 6 month old), and the area around the pool was great for relaxing in the sun (it was mid 20's when we were there).

Inside the villa is extremely well appointed with everything you might expect. The cleaner 'Christina' came in most days and was brilliant (could do with her at home).

We have stayed in numerous villas in this area and this was the best yet. We will be booking again for next year.

It is much appreciated to have your comments as we try very hard to make sure all our guests have a happy and trouble free holiday when staying in our lovely villa. We are very lucky to have a superb team over in Portugal looking after things for us in our absence. It was a pleasure to have you stay in Casa Concha and we look forward to welcoming you back in 2016!

Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Concha with two other friends who, like ourselves, have experienced many other self-catering villas in the past. All four of us tend to be very fussy about our holiday accommodation. We all agreed that Casa Concha is absolutely top notch, from the level of equipment to the quality of fittings and the comfort of beds, sofas etc. The garden, where we spent most of our time, is an absolute gem with beautiful planting, superb pool, great BBQ, lots of different places to sit either in the sun or shade and very private. The location in Vale do Lobo makes the villa very well placed for both the beach, restaurants, golf club house and the local supermarket, which are all within walking distance. We would definitely recommend this villa to our nearest and dearest and will certainly book again for ourselves. Perfect!

PS. The current photographs of the bathrooms don't do it justice as they have all been updated and are quite superb!

Casa Consha

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fantastic week in this very very well equipped villa. The pool was so warm & the gardens beautiful & well kept. Our children were thrilled to find a cupboard full of tennis bats & balls, toys and lots of buckets & spades. Which I'm sure you'll agree end up costing a fortune before you even hit the beach!!! We felt very safe & secure in this villa & in the area of Vale do lobo as it has its own security team driving round the resort 24hrs a day. Sheila & David has a beautiful Villa & we would highly recommend it to anyone..
