Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Tracy!

Our holiday went very well! Very many thanks.

Villa 33 is perfect for a group like ours. The pool is ideal and as you know we hit a real heatwave for part of the time. Even the Portuguese were complaining!

A real plus too was Rosa and the CAPS team. Knowing how meticulous and organised you are (that's a compliment by the way!) I can see why you have confidence in her. She (and Carla) are spot on. She bends over backwards to ensure all is running as well as possible and her team work extremely well.

Great villa - very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son (nearly 13) and I stayed here for a week in August. We had a thoroughly enjoyable week, dipping in and out of the super pool and lazing around the well-appointed villa.

The whole experience, from initial booking to the last day when we had an extra couple of hours in the villa rather than having to wait around at the airport, was extremely good. The management company on site were very helpful and not having known what to expect it made the week even better to know we were in good hands and any queries could be resolved quickly and with no fuss. They even organised the transfers from Faro airport - about 50 minutes door to door - and both ways we had very pleasant and helpful drivers.

The town of Alvor is about a 25 minute walk down hill most of the way so even in the heat it wasn't too arduous. Then a taxi back after our evening meal (or after the one big shop we did) was a snip at €5. Very friendly town and the restaurants we ate in were all good - we tried a different one each night.

All in all a very good week!

Nice villa but very disappointed with owner.

  • 1 of 5

Very disappointed with the owner of this villa. We had some breakages and she replaced the broken items with items of a higher and more expensive standard and charged us for the more expensive replacements and then expressed surprise when I asked for sight of the receipts. We had to buy a coffee pot as there wasn't one but didn't ask for reimbursement. In almost twenty years of renting such properties this is the first time we have experienced a disappointing attitude from the owner.

Owner's Response: Dear Gillian Thank you for your feedback, I do my utmost to try to ensure all my guests have a pleasant stay in the villa, which I am pleased to see you enjoyed and the many communications whilst you were holidaying at the villa communicated this to me - We are loving it here, and C***a is lovely and most helpful. We are not looking forward to returning to the rain! Cheers, Unfortunately breakages do occur and it is for that reason we ask for a security deposit of £300.00. A sun lounger and chairs were broken along with a towel rail, mosquito net, etc. We had to purchase temporary standard replacements of the furniture for the next guests’ use. I refunded half of the breakage (£150) and posted you sight of the relevant invoice. We had a new induction hob installed prior to the start of the season and the existing coffee pot was not compatible with the hob - I am afraid I missed this being a non-coffee drinker! Once you pointed this out, our management company hastily purchased a replacement and indeed the coffee pot you also purchased you left at the villa. I am sad to hear, 8 months after your holiday, you felt I did not come up to standard. Since letting the villa in 2009 you are the first person I have failed and I apologise for that. Tracy

A villa to remember!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family holiday in a villa and we would now find it hard to stay anywhere else! The villa was fabulous, situated in a lovely quiet peacful location, spotlessly clean, well equiped and decorated to a very high standard. The pool was a lovely size and benefited from the sun all day long. The garden area was immaculate too so a perfect spot for total relaxation and a barbie to finish off a chilled out day.

Tracey the owner made the booking process very easy and her management team based in Alvor were great. So helpful and pleasant.

I cannot recommend this villa enough and will definitely be back.

This was a real holiday to remember for us all!

Another relaxing week in this beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this beautiful family villa. I can't recommend this villa enough! It is situated in the pictureque fishing town of Alvor with it many restaurants and bars, the small road it is on is so peaceful with other villas as it's neighbours. The villa is decorated and equipped to a high standard, the pool is just amazing, my children lived in it for a full week! It is a lovely walk to the beach via Alto Golf. On an evening we got a taxi in to Alvor for €5 but it is also a lovely walk down to the centre.

Tracy with whom we booked the villa with is very helpful, professional and responds promptly to all your enquiries. The ladies who meet and greet you are excellent and you can contact them at anytime for assistance.

Overall, the perfect holiday! Can't wait to return.

Absolutely Ideal

  • 5 of 5

Having returned to Alvor and Alto Golf/Club properties for 25 years, we have to say that this was our BEST holiday experience.

The villa provided everything that we required; its was clean and very comfortable and all of our group (4 Adults) immediately felt 'at home'.

We spent hours chilling-out around the pool and listening to 'the silence'.

We were welcomed with some basic essentials (wine _IS_ an essential for a holiday) and of course the small Alvor town has its own Pingo Doce Supermarket about 2 miles from the villa, so additional provisions were easily accessible.

Will we return - without question!

Thank you to everyone who made our short holiday such a great time.

Perfect villa for a holiday with family or friends

  • 5 of 5

Superb villa,fantastic pool, excellent location and marvellous management!


Villa: Very well appointed to a high standard in all areas. Particularly extensive lounge and TV (Wi-fi too!)area opening onto poolside. Bedroom design with double room and separate twin on same floor great for families and the whole of the top floor is a master suite; huge seating area with an additional sofa bed and extensive top terrace where we also enjoyed BBQ and dinner.

Pool: Wonderful! Large and immaculately maintained. Couldn't get the kids (or wife) out! Set in lovely (well-maintained) garden with car port at rear.

Location: Brilliant-for us. One beach (Vau) is ten minute stroll. Golf course even closer! We discovered Alvor beach on this trip, very walkable or ten minutes by car. Numerous extremely good beach bars and restaurants.

Dining: Three or four lovely, family-friendly restaurants and bakery/snack bars within few minutes walk.

Alvor itself is a delightful village/port. Masses of family owned delightful restaurants sprawl down to a refurbished and smart seafront. Vibrant but not raucous. Stroll down in twenty minutes or taxi for £3!

Management: Best I've encountered, from Tracy(owner) and her comprehensive descriptions, directions, floorplans and maps of local walks to Rosa (manager) and her team who are outstanding. Rosa could not be more helpful with advice and bookings- perfect English (as she married a brit!). Nothing too much trouble and ensured everything excellently maintained.

In summary: the perfect villa for a fun-filled family and friends holiday. Our second visit -hopefully not our last!
