About Beverley Walker

Hi, my name is Beverley; I am married to Gary and have 3 daughters, 31, 29 and 15 years of age.

I work as a part time Finance Assistant in one of the local schools.

I am originally from Lincolnshire but now live in the beautiful town of Maldon in Essex.

Beverley Walker purchased this villa in 2008

Why Beverley Walker chose Alpouvar

We bought the plot of land in 2006/7 and designed the villa ourselves. All in all Casa Vida took just over a year to build and finish. It has always been an ambition of ours to design and build a property.

We choose Portugal for many reasons... the weather, the beaches and the friendly Portuguese people. We choose Clube Albufeira for the facilities that are on offer and for the fact that the resort is nice and quiet with all the hustle and bustle not being too far away if you need it.

We have equipped Casa Vida for our use as well as the rental market and take great pride in our villa, enquiries and rentals.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Vida is very large, open and spacious. It is very well equipped with toys and games to amuse the children and a pool table and football game to amuse the dads so mums all you have to do is grab a book from the bookshelf downstairs, grab a wine and a sunlounger and relax... something we don't do often!

Everybody enjoys Casa Vida. I take a lot of pride in communicating with my guests to ensure they have the best time ever. So if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Reading the guest book every year really gives me a sense of immense pleasure and happiness, knowing that all my guests enjoy Casa Vida and the complex as much as my family and I.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We went to this villa as 8 adults and 4 children (2 of which were young babies), we had a lot of questions regarding sleeping arrangements for the babies and if formula milk and nappies were supplied locally and at what charge - all these questions were answered and pictures were also sent of which foruma and nappies were sold. when we arrived sonja met us and give a very warm welcome, give us a tour of the villa and drew on a map were we could find local ammenties and some of her recommendations. The villa was superb, so much room for all of us, having our own pool and bbq area was the highlight - also not having to get up at 7am to put towels on the sunloungers. unfortunalty we had a family bereavment and we left to go home early on 2 separate days, the owener Beverley ensured our tranfers to airport were changed at no extra cost. Sonja came to the villa before we left to ensure we didnt need anything else. The only problem we had was a lot of taxis could not find the property. Would highly reccomend this villa and we hope to be back soon.

A stunning villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

With plenty of modern living space, amazing pool and children's pool, this villa ticked every box for us, there was 12 of us who stayed at the villa.

Very friendly people, extremely helpful and our stay was made easier by Beverley contacting us in advance organising, transfers to and from the airport and giving us Roger who owns a local taxi company to take us on excursions and to and from the local towns he was incredibly helpful!

Thank you all for making our holiday perfect we will defiantly be retuning.

We were a mixed age family with an age range from 6 months to 54 years old and everybody was very impressed with the villa.

Great villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We took our family of 15 to the villa and had a great time. Beverley has thought of everything to entertain the children from all ages and the adults too.

This is the 2nd time we have been to Villa Casa Vida. We will be back hopefully in the not too distant future.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic venue for a family holiday. We travelled as a party of 11 ranging from 3 years old to 63 years old and the villa catered for all. Great location not to far from albufeira, very clean and well maintained with all the equipment/accessories you need. We spent most of our time outside around the pool area as this was a great location to spend some quality family time. Would definitely recommend this Villa for a family holiday and we will definitely be returning again in the future.

Holiday of a lifetime.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was all we had wished for ,clean, quality accomodation, that was spacious and airy with a pool to die for! (especially in 35 degree heat !) We booked for all our family to celebrate a special occasion and the villa, and Clube Albufeira proved to be all that we hoped and wished for. The owner provided us with a lot of information about the villa and area around which proved invaluable. It was a pleasant 20 minute walk from the villa into the old town, or a 4-5 euro taxi ride, and an evening visit is quite interesting ! It was a family holiday which we all felt was faultless, thanks to the quality of our accomodation, the weather, and the service provided by the owners service staff. Thanks to you all.

Amazing Villa, 2nd time visiting with 3rd booked!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic Villa in excellent location. Beverley, the owner, is great and efficient to deal with and all the information she provides before your departure is fantastic. Sonja, the villa manager see's to your every need when you are on-site. The pool at the villa is great, we were at pains to leave it during the day when we were on our outings. The kitchen has everything you need and more (better then my kitchen at home). The TV room is great, especially for the kids to relax if they want a rest from the sun, and to have all the sky channels is a great bonus. Bedrooms with en-suite were a great size and meticulously clean. The games room is a very cool place at night and excellent for after dinner drinks. Anyone wanting a luxury villa in a great location would do well to book Casa Vida.

Wow Wow Wow

  • 5 of 5

10 of us had the most amazing family holiday at this superb villa during the last week of June. From the first contact with Beverley in March to our departure day we couldn't have asked for more help and communication. Beverly was fantastic in correspondence from the outset and Sonja so helpful on our arrival at the villa and during our stay.

The villa is stunning.

Age ranges in our group were 20-55. Us "old 'uns" thought the "kids" would be off and out day and night however with such a fantastic place to stay with great facilities none of us ever wanted to stray too far. The pool,games room and a round table outside that seated all 10 of us made for some great entertainment during our stay.

We did a couple of "big shops", one at Pingo Doce and the other at Lidl, then other than that top ups at the on site shop were fine for us (it's not overpriced). The taxis all charged us double the normal amount when we had lots of shopping, otherwise we only paid around €3.50 from the Old Town. The walk to the Old Town and the Pingo Doce is pleasant and takes around 25 mins at a steady pace. For some of us this wasn't our first visit to Albuferia so we were familiar with all that it has to offer. Sonya arranged transport for us for a trip to Vilamoura, well worth a visit to see the gorgeous marina and eat some lovely sardines on the quayside.

Wonderfully equipped, great sized rooms and en suite facilities, (the Master Bedroom is massive with its own terrace!) if you're looking for a wonderful family Villa in a great holiday destination then look no further than Casa Vida.
