What a fabulous view, so relaxing and peaceful and everything to hand. While the children watched a dvd at night we sat on the balcony with a bottle or two watching the world go by. I want to go back again. PJ Scotland

Home from Home. We have now been 4 times Harold treats us like part of the family, nothing is too much trouble cannot recommend him, the location or the apartment high enough. SB. Cardiff

Loved every minute of it, the kids loved the beach and the banana boat ride when we were hungry one of us just nipped back to the apartment and made some sandwiches it was only a couple of minutes away. The handy thing was you could keep an eye on the children from the kitchen in the pool below. P.N. Reading

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful 5 days in this property. Clean and spacious with everything you need. Situated right near to the beach with stunning views out to sea. Restaurants and Supermarkets close by and a short walk to the strip. Would highly recommend this apartment and the owner Harold was great and contactable if we needed anything.

Thank you Harold

Stunning appartment, with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a family of 3, from 31/8/16 till 11/9/16. We had a wonderful holiday. It was so great sitting on the balcony at night listening to the waves tumbling on the beach. Shops and restaurants was in close proximity. My teenage daughter loved visiting the Chinese shop on the Strip. Very cheap and it stocks all kinds of goodies. The beach is beautiful. We went to zoomarine and the old town, the dolphin show was great. All in all a great holiday, and we would really recommend a stay here. The apartment is very spacious and very well equipped. Thank you Harold.

Regards Ilse

Great Apartment!

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at this apartment. The pool area was lovely and quiet and the beach was just on the doorstep. It was so lovely to wake up to the sound of the sea. Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Very steep walk up to the strip, not for the faint hearted. Very clear and helpful communication from Harold on booking and leading up to our trip, made everything so easy. Would recommend this apartment for a lovely relaxing holiday.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a great, spacious and well maintained apt. With shops, bars & restaurants on your door-step. The Strip is a short walk away while the Old Town is a short Taxi ride (you can also walk). Would highly recommend this apartment with the relaxing sound of the sea washing up on a beautiful beach.

Oura heaven

  • 4 of 5

Lovely well maintained apartment on 3rd floor. Double doors from main bedroom and kitchen onto the balcony which overlooks the pool and the sea. Perfect for a quiet family holiday but the Strip and The Old Town are close enough to walk. There is a well stocked local shop across the street with reasonable prices and a little bakery just around the corner for the breakfast pastries. Highly recommended.

Amazing apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in the perfect location! You definitely have the best of both worlds as it can be quiet and relaxing listening to the waves or you can have a short walk up to the busy strip/catch the tourist train down to the old town. The apartment itself is so lovely and has everything you need. I'd 100% recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to stay in Albufeira!
