About Kevin Bingham

We live in Surrey in England, we have 4 grown up children between us, Angie and I work extremely hard and we love to travel as much as we can, our second home is in Portugal where we enjoy the beautiful beaches, friendly people and great weather. We are constantly up-grading or improving our apartment for every one`s comfort, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!

Kevin Bingham purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Kevin Bingham chose Albufeira

We have been holidaying in Portugal for the past 19 years. We had dreamt of owning our own home in Portugal one day when In the summer 2005 we were browsing around window shopping in local real estate agents and we showed some interest in one bedroom apartments, but not really intentionally going to buy but the estate agent told us he had just the property for us, he took us to view this apartment, instantly we fell in love with it so we proceeded to purchase it, The accomodation and location are just perfect!!

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment faces the south, It's ideally located to all amenities no need for a car, safe and secure, comfortable, home from home, and larger than average 1 bedroom apartments, private well maintained gardens and lovely swimming pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent location the best, fabulous spacious apartment, close to everything, we will recommend to family and friends, Kevin & Angie extremely helpful.

This apartment is in the perfect location only 2 minutes from the strip and you can also enjoy a good nights sleep. The old town is a 15 minute walk away and is also great for night life. The apartment has everything that you need and is very well furnished. We tried Jonny Hoopers restaurant only 5 mins walk and had a fantastic meal there worth googling. overall 10 out of 10 will definitely be back. Helen and John

High spec apartment,great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are just back from two weeks here. The apartment ticked all the boxes with top furnishings and linen. The kitchen had everything we needed and a nice south facing balcony.Although only a 5 minute walk from the strip it was a really quiet apartment. Loved the super king sized bed, such a good sleep. The pool area was very clean and plenty of loungers at any time of day. Only a few minutes from the local supermarket and the bread/cake shop round the corner was amazing and so reasonable. I would love to stay here again, I could not fault it at all.

Fabulous apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 2 weeks holiday in this lovely apartment, which was ideally situated for all our favourite bars and eating places on the strip. It is in a very quiet area, yet just a 5 minute stroll to the middle of the strip.

The apartment was great, and has everything you need.

We went to the pool area every day, and there were always sunbeds available.

Thanks to Angie & Kevin for all your help.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks holiday, and would definitely stay here again.

Wish we were still there !

A modern well positioned apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weeks stay in this apartment which is centrally based so you are close to the beach, the strip and supermarkets all within 5 mins walking distance. The supermarkets sell the most amazing selection of fresh fish and very cheap good wine.

The apartment is very comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated, all bed linen and towels were to a high quality and everything we needed was provided.

There are endless places to eat, we had a really memorable Indian meal just around the corner.

The pool area is kept clean and there were always sun beds available. We had a few problems with the key to the pool area as the lock was worn but I'm sure this will be resolved.

Kevin and Angie are extremely helpful, they gave lots of info regarding the apartment and surrounding area, immediate responses to any questions and couldn't do enough to make sure our stay was perfect. Thank you

We would definitely stay here again.
