About the Owner

We have owned the villa since 2010 and use it ourselves as a holiday home for our family. We have a two year old son and two Mother in Laws who always come on holiday with us.

We have rented the villa out the whole time we have owned it and had some wonderful reviews from people who have stayed there.

We live in Nottingham in the UK.

Lovely new villa, beware if you would like heated

  • 3 of 5

New villa located on large development. You need a car during your stay here as only thing within walking distance is the beach and 2 restaurants down there. Both beach and restaurants were really good.

The heated pool was a big reason for us to book this particular villa. I contacted the owner to ensure the pool would be heated and I had acknowledgement that the heating would be on ready for our arrival.

When we arrived the pool was freezing cold. i contacted the owner on several occasions (not something i really wanted to keep on doing on holiday) who assured me that it would switched on that day. We were out for the next 2 days so assumed this had been done whilst we were out but still we couldn't tell a difference with the temperature and it was too cold to use.

On day 3 the pooling cleaning guys came and, by chance, we were in so were able to speak with them directly. They checked and said the heating was not on and so switched it on for us. From being turned on it takes a couple of days to heat up to a temperture we could use. I'd contacted the owner so many times to ensure the pool was heated before we arrived and during the first few days of our holiday and every time was assured the heating was on.

After a couple of days the pool was a lovely temperature and we are able to use it but only 2/3 days out of our 7 day stay. This was so dissappointing and really ruined it for us, as we have small children who wanted to use the pool.

When we arrived home we posted the keys back to the owner she didn't receive them so £20 was deducted from our deposit - £20 for a couple of keys to be cut is a little steep i thought!

We did have a lovely time in here but the pool not being heated and my having to constantly message the owner during my stay ruined it for me unfortunately.

Owner's Response: This is the first negative review I have had in the seven years that I have been renting out our beautiful villa. This particular traveller did not pay for the pool to be heated, as it clearly states it is an extra cost. Out of good will I asked our pool man to put it on for them when they had arrived, which he did. Unfortunately it does take a few days to heat up properly. When guests have paid for the heating I always make sure the pool is switched on at least three days in advance so that it's at a warm temperature. As for the keys, they have be cut in Lagos as the keys are not available in the UK. So £20 to get the keys re cut and sent back to me in the UK is actually less than what it cost me to do. The keys for the driveway gates have also not been returned which I did not charge them for because I didn't want to be petty! I wish I had now!

Wonderful holiday in a super villa

  • 5 of 5

The was a high degree of trepidation when booking with Owners Direct given the bad publicity they have had of late and clearly you have to be very careful to ensure that all is as it seems. I am happy so say that this was all it seemed. A super villa in what seems to be holiday villa close with everything you could wish for. I would strongly recommend a car as the villa is not close to shops and the owners will recommend both an excellent no frills car hire company and a first class executive travel company. A short walk from the beach do not be tempted to to take the cliff path down especially with children. The walk down the road is equally convenient and you are less likely to be visiting the local hospital with a fractured ankle. I agree with what was said about Antonios - very hit and miss both the food and especially the service....I think they have had a hospitality by-pass. There is an excellent manager locally to help with anything.

The only negative I would say is that the booking process is not the slickest. the website is not updated as often as some and there is a reluctance to provide and invoice or receipt for payments made - which adds a little to the unease when you have no ABTA cover. You pays your money etc.....and if you do I am sure you will enjoy your stay

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

This Villa was lovely with a beautiful pool, plenty of chairs and tables and equipment generally. Car is needed to go to the local shops but they are not expensive to hire. Beautiful beach with two bar/restaurants which is walk able to. Lagos is not to far away and is really nice.

excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with the villa. I went on holiday with my children and my grandson. Ample room in the villa for all the family and their partners. Large heated pool which was just great for my grandson. The villa is within walking distant of a lovely sandy beach with great restaurants on the beach front. The villa is in a nice quiet area and within a short drive to the town. We are planning another holiday this year and will definitely book the villa again.

5 Aussies in Portugal

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, the house was just like in the description. The layout of the house and pool were wonderful. We came in late on our flight and a simple phone call changed our key pick up etc.very helpful.

I could recommend this property for a large family or a group of friends to share ( like us) We ate out every night but it's also a perfect place to cook and enjoy the terrace. We really appreciated the information folder with instructions and guides.

The restaurant guides were correct and we recommend both sea front restaurants, but we found the staff at Antonios quite rude at the door on arrival, so we didn't go back there!

Location

From the Owner

We fell in love with Lagos when we were looking for an investment property. We had bought before in Albufeira, but once we visited Lagos and in particular Porto Do Mos, there was no question that we were going to invest in that area.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The stunning beach of Porto de Mos is only 5 minutes walk from the villa boasting two authentic Portuguese beach restaurants.

Travel:

Faro Airport is a 45 minute drive from the villa. There are plenty of car hire companies at the airport. A car is not essential as walking distance to Lagos town centre is 35 minutes and taxis are easily available.

Distances:

Lagos town centre and marina is 35 minutes walk or 5 minutes drive. There is a large supermarket (Intermarche) only 1km away.

Further Details:

Porto De Mos is amongst one of the most sought after areas in the Western Algarve and is set on the outskirts of the historical town of Lagos. This beautiful town is soaked in history and has an abundance of top class restaurants and a brand new marina. Lagos is a perfect family holiday.

The area is so peaceful and so close to the beach that we go for a walk every morning. The villa itself feels like a home from home and we immediately relax as soon as we unpack.
