About Sandro Jose Guedelha Arez

My name is Sandro Arez. I'm 37 years old and I'm a Accountant.

Why Sandro Jose Guedelha Arez chose Olhos de Água

We love Albufeira because of the fantastic facilities in the area. There are some beautiful beaches and the marina boasts a great range of bars and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Faro airport less than an hours drive away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We rented this villa for the last 2 weeks in July and there were five of us in our party (2 children 11yrs and 15yrs). The villa is located not far from the Velamar Hotel and has easy access to local restaurants and supermarket. My father was with us (65yrs) so we did not walk to the beach but it was only a couple of minutes in the car, otherwise it would have been approx a 10min walk. The villa itself had everything that we needed and more. The access to BBC and ITV was an added bonus just to keep up to date with UK news. The villa easily sleeps 8 people and the master bedroom has a large dressing area which could be used for extra beds. The maid service is very thorough and the villa and gardens are in excellent condition. We have been lucky to rent many lovely villas in France, Spain and Portugal over the last few years but this one seemed to offer everyhing - location, facilities and cleanliness - we will definately be back.Recommended for:Families with Teenagers.Scoobie's Scotland

Enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately the weather was not brilliant, very windy but this did not stop us using the heated pool

Spacious, great pool and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Casa De Aguias in May 18 and had a fabulous time. It was a family trip consisting of two couples and 5 kids aged from 7 to 15 and the villa was spacious with plenty of bathrooms and a generous kitchen and living area. The pool was without a doubt a highlight . We chose the heated option and would highly recommend it to anyone planning to visit at this time of year. The kids spent hours in it and all absolutely loved the warm water. It was clean and a decent size too so all enjoyed it. Sandro the owner was very helpful and answered all my emails promptly and was there to welcome us on the day we arrived. As it was early May it was a little chilly on the first night and Sandro sent over heaters for the living room but we only used them for first few evenings as weather was gorgeous for most of our stay and villa was warm. The villa is in an excellent location and in easy walking distance to lots of shops, cafes and a lovely Italian restaurant which we ate in a few nights and it was lovely to be able to walk home without using the car all the time. Santa Eulalia beach was a 2 min drive away and was perfect as it was never overcrowded with ample parking and a restaurant sitting on the beach for snacks and showers etc. We hired a car and Vilamoura marina and Albufeira Old town were in easy distance with lots of activities to avail of. The 3 hour cruise and kayaking are just two that we enjoyed of the many on offer. Slide and Splash was a half hour drive but well worth a visit. Overall we had a super time and loved this villa and it’s location. We would definitely visit again!

Nice villa in good location

  • 3 of 5

Nice villa, well situated, However, there is no heating in living area making it cold and damp feeling out of season. Luckily I managed to get a couple of heaters from a relative in the area otherwise it would have been too cold, especially as we had 4 grand children with us aged 4, 3,2 and 4 months.

Also we asked for the pool to be heated for our arrival, and knowing it takes about 10 days to heat up reminded the owner of this request in good time before we travelled. When we arrived however, the pool was cold, and the owner informed us he had only put the heating on 2 days earlier. The pool was heating very slowly, and after 2 days unknown to us the owner came round and switched the heating off. When I reported that the heating was off he said that because the weather was poor he didn't think we would use the pool, but that was exactly why we wanted it heated. He switched the heating back on but then it failed to work after 1 day, so we gave up on it. The owner basically said that it wasn't possible to heat the pool up to an acceptable temperature out of season. I think this should be made highlighted in the description. I personally think the owner was trying to keep costs down by putting the heating on near arrival day, and setting the temperature low. It backfired as I declined to pay for the heated pool.The lack of a heated pool seriously effected our holiday.

In summary, I think this would be a good location in season, but not out of season

Lovely villa in a good location.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful private villa which is in a good location not too far from shops and amenities. The outside pool area is fantastic,not overlooked by any other properties with well kept gardens. When we had a problem with the pool, the owner was very quick to get it sorted out.

The only negative was that there was no hand soap in the bathrooms or dishwasher tablets for the dishwasher. This is a very small negative in what was a wonderful stay!

We would definitely return for another visit!

Beautiful villa perfect for families. Plenty of shops, restaurants and bars within walking distance.

  • 4 of 5

Family of 8 returned from a week stay in Casa De Agua. The owner, Sandro, is a very helpful in the lead up to the holiday. Always replied to any questions we had via email.

Sandro met us on arrival to show us around his property and also stopped by the day before we left.

The villa itself is set in a brilliant location. A quiet beach town between Albufeira and Vilamoura. There is plenty to see and do within 1/2 hour car journey. We had a hire car for the week that we used everyday and only used 1/4 tank.

Facilities in the villa are great, and very accommodating for families with children. However, there are lots of steps inside the villa and in the grounds of the property. Our 2 year old enjoyed the play area outside but we had to keep an extra close eye on him due to all the steps. It's perhaps not the best villa for those with limited mobility.

The pool area is very nice, it is not overlooked and quiet when needed. There is plenty of patio furniture and table tennis to enjoy. It was well worth the extra money for the heated pool for the toddler.

There is plenty of storage space in all the bedrooms with hangers provided.

The kitchen is big with plenty of utensils, crockery and cutlery.

Only 1 toilet roll per bathroom was the only essential provided. So we had to buy that and more items like hand soap / salt/pepper / tea/coffee/sugar. There is a small supermarket 5-10mins walk away that we used for daily groceries, but we drove about 15mins to the nearest Lidl for bigger food shops.

As we didn't use up everything, it would be interesting to see if the non-perishing items are left or cleared out before the next guests arrive.

If you arrive at the villa late, after travelling it would be nice to have a small welcome hamper to see you through the night, saving you from hunter/gathering late at night. This is the only reason for not giving 5stars.

Overall we had an excellent holiday with plenty of great local food and drink to gourge on. We recommend getting a hire car, but it's easy to get a €10-15 taxi ride to Old Town Albufeira to the west or Vilamoura Marina to the east. The reception staff at the hotel at the bottom of the street were happy to book for us or you could flag one down at the bus/taxi stops on the main road.

The cleaners come twice weekly, replacing bed linen and bath towels and pool towels if required.

I would definitely book to stay at this villa again with or without children.

Beautiful Property, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 of us (Work Colleagues) stayed here for 10 days from 30th September, and had a wonderful time. This Villa is set in the perfect Location being the last property on the lane so no overlooking neighbors or passing traffic, but still close enough to local amenities.

The Swimming was fabulous and never empty of people!

All in all an excellent villa for a family or for entertaining and we all hope to be back next year! Thank you Sandro :)
