About Stephen

Myself and my wife bought this apartment because the views from the balcony are just unbeatable. Looking straight across the golf course (not that we're golfers!) to the marina and the sea is something rare and we had not managed to find it before. At night the sunset is just breath taking. As the property was for our own use as much as rental we decided to put in good quality furniture throughout so we wouldn't feel that it was cheapened in any way. The walk to the marina and the beach is great, especially now they have finished all the landscaping along the main avenue, although the back road is much quicker (approx. 10 mins +/-). We would love to spend more time there, however we cannot, so we hope that you can enjoy it for us! If you have any questions please ask.

Stephen purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Stephen chose Vilamoura

Vilamoura has always been a place we love. The marina is simply fantastic with all the little bars and restaurants. Sadly my wife enjoys the boutique shopping as well, which is the only draw back! Everything you need is within shooting distance and the airport is just a 10 minute drive away. We like to have a car as we do wherever we go, to remain independent, and with kids it's easier to be able to throw everything in the car than clamber around with bags full of things! We wanted to be just far away that we didn't get over run with tourists, but close enough to everything that we didn't feel isolated. Apparently the new 5* Tivoli hotel felt the same way we did.

What makes this apartment unique

Quite simply the views from the 100m2 terrace is something other properties do not have, I know I've looked many, many times. Oh and if the sun is too much, there's another 50sq.m over looking the pool that you can use to get some shade!

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Your apartment was fabulous, we loved everything about it, especially the sunrise and sunsets that we enjoyed from the terrace. Beautifully decorated and very spacious, we will definitely be back' Anne

"if you decide to sell your apartment, put me down as interested. the views were spectacular" Mark

"We were a little worried about booking through the internet, as you never know what it will be like when you arrive. I'm so happy we did the apartment was much nicer than we had ever hoped. We will be back next year for sure. (if not before!). Mrs. Webber

High Class, Clean and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We have booked the apartment for our up and coming honeymoon in April. Prior to the honeymoon stay, we decided to stay at the apartment, whilst we visited Portugal to finalise our wedding plans.

The apartment is very well presented and comfortable, the communication from Steohen the landlord was also superb.

We would highly recommend people to stay at his apartment.

Great terrace

  • 5 of 5

This is a smart apartment in a very secure block. The biggest selling point is the large terrace - we were there in Jan/Feb and got full sun all day. Not able to have breakfast outside every day, but were able to sunbathe nearly every day.

Spacious as it only has the one bedroom. AC worked okay.

Outside table showing signs of wear and some of the crockery too, but the owners have obviously gone for top of the range equipment and fittings originally.

Service lift from secure garage comes up only yards from front door which is great.

No local facilities so get used to getting in the car for everything.

Thank you for the welcome pack.

Would consider again.

Everything we hoped it would be.

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely quiet apartment with fabulous views and we loved having a balcony both ends as we could choose to have shade whilst eating breakfast and watch sunset for dinner or my girlfriend sunbathing before breakfast some days !

Owner was so accommodating and efficient - everything we asked about was immediately answered - even beach towels and cards for the Boris Bikes were made available - underground parking and lift directly to front door of apartment was so convenient when shopping - we will definitely be back - only thing I was concerned about was the pool looked small and shallow in the photos - not so in reality - 1.5m deep with a kiddie pool next to it and with Portuguese pools normally being unheated, the main pool not being enormous was brilliant as the sun had a chance to warm it to perfect temperature - it was refreshing rather than breathtakingly cold !

Fantastic modern ideally located penthouse near Vilamoura.

  • 5 of 5

Top floor penthouse, modern & stylishly furnished, convenient for the golf courses, beaches, Vilamoura marina and inland access. We stayed at Stephen's apartment in April and had a fabulous week due in the most part to the comfort and convenience of the complex. From here you can access the main coastal route easily, the town is only a 10 minute drive away, the lovely inland villages perhaps 20 minutes, and the motorway 10 minutes. The complex is very clean and modern, quiet (in April), spacious, sunny (capturing the morning sun for breakfast and evening sun for 'wine o'clock'), with the added advantage of underground parking and a swimming pool. The apartment itself is scrupulously clean, modern, providing all the conveniences and has so much space due to the layout. Stephen has provided all you could need with very clear and helpful instructions for arriving and staying. We loved the views, the peace, the privacy and the house martins (making their nests). Would definitely recommend it and hopefully will be going again.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in October and absolutely loved it. The apartment was even better than we anticipated and had everything we could possibly need. Stephen was on hand if we needed him (not that we did). The resort itself is beautiful. I would highly recommend staying here, we had a fantastic holiday.
