About Lynne Marshall

Gary and I live in Leicestershire and have four children between us - all now in their twenties! We also have a Labradoodle and a Goldendoodle to complete the family.

I am a dog behaviourist owning a company called Love Your Dog Training. I also manage our apartment in Portugal and really enjoying liaising with our guests to ensure that you have a holiday of a lifetime.

We have travelled widely and never been back to the same place twice until we went to the Algarve. It has so much to offer - great food and wine, fabulous beaches, the best weather year round, golf, water sports and lots to do for children of all ages. We have found as a holiday destination it is impossible to beat and we love going over whenever we can.

Lynne Marshall purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Lynne Marshall chose Quarteira

What a fantastic apartment was all we could say when we had the opportunity to buy this apartment off plan. It was semi built so we could see its potential and were told that we could design the interior ourselves.

The floor to ceiling windows showed off the sea views to perfection and we asked the builders to knock down a wall to create a more contemporary feel.

We really enjoyed designing the interiors and choosing the tiles, bathrooms, kitchens and furniture ourselves. From comments our guests have made we have been successful in creating a modern but very stylish and comfortable apartment which we love staying in ourselves! The photos don't do it justice.

What makes this apartment unique

Delphine apartment is in the centre of the promenade overlooking the beach and so close to everything. There are no noisy bars or restaurants near us but everything is on hand for you. Great in all seasons including the winter as the resort does not close down.

The apartment is set up so you have sea views from every room - like us you will be stunned as you walk in to the apartment for the first time and experience the views at first hand. The balcony is accessible from all rooms and is a great place to sit out, sunbathe or just enjoy a meal.

The Portuguese families all enjoy their evening promenade along the sea front and you can find local entertainers, stalls, music in the summer months. It is a very safe and fun environment to enjoy your holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for providing such stunningly beautiful accommodation. We have had a thoroughly enjoyable time and I am happy that I followed my instinct and booked the accommodation with yourself. I felt very confident after speaking to you several months back that I was making the right choice. You have exceptional taste in decor and I sincerely admire the pride and professionalism that you have in your business.

Your apartment is stunning - a real wow factor on arrival, what a fantastic location - we couldn't have asked for more. It is the nicest apartment on the strip, even from the outside, and we absolutely loved the area of Quarteira. We will definately be returning!

Well, just came back from a few days in Quarteira, and let me tell you that you have a great apartment there, very very good indeed. I enjoyed the apartment very much (the view is great, the location wonderful) and for sure i'll return and recommend it to everyone.

What more can we say....Beautiful apartment with equally stunning views.

This was our first trip to Portugal and would not hesitate to return. The whole experience was great, Lynne was extremely helpful and professional, transfers arranged and on time, a beautiful apartment and a lovely area to stay.

Our short stay meant that we did not have much time to explore the area but we did manage the walk to Vilamoura a couple of times but actually preferred the atmosphere and friendliness of the more Portuguese area of Quarteira. There were some lovely restaurants close to the apartment and loved the Coral beach bar.

The only disappointment is that we didn't stay long enough but hope to rectify that some time.

All together a lovely first experience of Portugal.

Jo, Paul and Ben

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very enjoyable two weeks In Quarteira. This apartment couldn't be in a better position - facing the beach and convenient to restaurants and shops.

The booking system was very efficient .

We would recommend this apartment and will definitely be back!

Stunning apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week in this stunning apartment and MUST visit again!! The apartment has everything you need and we were most impressed with the attention that has paid to details - books to borrow, dvd's, magazines, everything you need in the kitchen (no need to go out buying the essentials such as washing up liquid, foil, cling film etc!). Everything was spotlessly clean. When we arrived there was a welcome pack which we very much appreciated.

The views from the balcony are superb - it was easy just to sit on the balcony, relax and watch the world go by. The position is perfect being wakling distance to lots of bars, restaurants, the fish market and of course the beach is right outside the font door.

We had a fantastic week and look forward to our next visit.

Many thanks to Lynne who was most helpful with the booking process

10 days at the beach

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this property from Sep 13-23, 2017, a family of 3. Let's start with the positives: The apartment is spacious, clean and has a good location. There is underground parking if you have a car. The beach is right across the street. I enjoyed the most the ocean view and the sound of the waves that could be heard from every room. The cleaning ladies were very nice and helpful. Not so great: The housekeeper, Xavier, who met us upon arrival was not so helpful and seemed to be in a big rush to leave. The kitchen needs to be better equipped with plates, glasses, a table cloth would be nice, the pots are in pretty bad shape. Also missing are beach towels. Guests going to the beach would expect to find a beach towel at the property. We bought 2 and left them there, hopefully future guests can benefit. The sofa in the living room is pretty beat up and uncomfortable. Last, in the main bathroom the shower curtain needs to be changed asap ( I took a picture, but decided not to attach it) and there is no towel rack or a hook anywhere in that bathroom. All in all, we liked the apartment and the few shortcomings would be an easy to fix by the owner.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that you enjoyed the lovely location of our apartment and that you found the apartment clean and tidy. The sound of the sea and the views are amazing! I am so sorry however that the shower curtain was not in a good condition, this really is unacceptable and I taken this up with our Management company. Likewise I have asked for immediate replacements of the pots and restocking of plates, glasses etc. I do mention that we don’t provide beach towels, with the sand and the salt they deteriorate very quickly and often aren’t suitable for reuse. Thanks for leaving yours though. I am so sorry that you didn’t mention these items whilst you were there, as you say easily remedied and we would have been only too happy to do so. I hope it didn’t spoil your holiday in any way and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Beautiful apartment with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

A really relaxing holiday with everything close by, beautiful views. Found lovely little beach cafe on first day and returned everyday for lunchtime drinks and lunch, great pizzas.

A very Portugese resort with lots going on day and night.

Within 20 minute walk of Villamoura with its impressive marina and restaurants.

Very helpful owners who made the whole process very smooth and easy.

Thank you

The beach is fabulous and suitable for children. It is blue flag rated, clean and stretches for miles. There are many wonderful and reasonably priced sea front restaurants in both directions. There is a wide tree lined promenade for walking or cycling with lots of coffee shops, restaurants and shops. You can hire sunbeds and parasols all along the beach.


Faro Airport - hire a car or I can book a taxi to bring you straight to the apartment. We provide full directions and our meet and greet service will be there on your arrival. The airport is 20 minutes away.

Quarteira has all the amenities you will need for a super holiday but if you would like to explore the area we can provide details of a reputable car hire service.


Hire a bike, walk or drive to Vilamoura marina - it is a 30 minute walk or a 5 minute drive. Val de Lobo is a walk down the coast or a short drive. Visit the town of Altes high up in the mountains for superb pottery bargains. Visit the Aqua Show Water Park great fun and just a 5 minute drive away.

Further Details:

However, there is plenty to do in Quarteira itself. Choose your own freshly caught fish at the famous fish market, buy your souvenirs at the famous weekly local market, try out great restaurants with both a Portuguese and an international flavour. Children’s play areas, supermarkets, local entertainment.
