Ocean-Front Villas with Heated 21m Pool and Fabulous Garden next to the Seashore - Ocean Villas Apt (2 Bedrooms) AL 5740



Updated: 01-Sep-2016
Villas in Praia da Luz, Western Algarve - Idyllic Location close to Beach, Restaurants and Shops

Ocean Villas - A very special find! There is nowhere to match the fabulous location of Ocean Villas with its glorious ocean-front gardens, completely re-landscaped for 2009 and greatly extended with a private path leading directly to the seashore. Ocean Villas is a luxury development of two and three bedroom villas and one or two bedroom apartments set around a magnificent, tropical lagoon-style swimming pool. It is in an enviable position right on the sea-front on the quieter side of the charming small town of Praia da Luz. The centre of Luz with all its shops, restaurants and facilities is just a couple of minutes walk away. There is a small sandy beach very close to the villas and the main beach of Praia da Luz is on the other side of the Fort less than 5 minutes walk away. A lane separates the villas from the large lawned gardens that stretch right down to the seashore. Car not required. The historic city of Lagos is 6km by road. Watersports, golf, surfing, boat trips close by.

Lovely apartment but owner very unhelpful

  • 4 of 5

The apartments are beautiful. Very clean and equipped with everything you need including washing machine, drying clothes horse, plenty of kitchen cutlery and other utensils. No air con in living area but it is in bedrooms. When we arrived unfortunately the air con was broke and we were told it would not be fixed. We were quite annoyed about this as we have a 4 year old and 18 month old so they would not have been able to sleep in the heat. Thought ut was quite strange that in a large grouo booking and we wers tge only couple with chikdren to be out in the inky apartment with no aur con. The owner told us we could have our money back but there was obviously no where else to stay in the height of the summer. Thankfully another guest in our group booking swapped apartments and we got air con. Ursula (the owner) son also thrashed the place the night before we left, we got the impression this is a regular occurence when he gets drunk. No apologies were given to us and we were the apartment right beside where the guy kicked off. We were extremely frightened and thank God another family in the apartment beside us rang the police. Because of this nasty woman we will not be returning.

Owner's Response: This booking was not made through Owners Direct or directly with Ocean Villas but we shall be pleased to respond. This guest was part of a Wedding party and her villa had been chosen by The Bride and Groom who tried to meet the expectations of all their invited guests. Ocean Villas enjoys a spectacular location very close walking distance to all the shops and restaurants with its own spectacular ocean front gardens and private path to the seashore. There are five linked 3 bedroom villas and 4 semi detached two bedroom villas. We apologise that an incident in a neighbouring detached villa that is not part of Ocean Villas caused some inconvenience but complete privacy from neighbours is only possible if booking a large detached villa in the countryside. We do offer air conditioning in the bedrooms at a small extra charge but in this case no a/c was booked. If this guest had booked a/c then a villa would have been allocated with a/c on her arrival. In the event another guest kindly offered to swap villas so the problem was resolved.
