About Kathy Hey

Retired bookkeeper from Leeds in West Yorkshire.

Married with grandchildren.

I love bowls, holidays & The Algarve. Particularly Armacao de Pera. We enjoy sharing the experience ..

Kathy Hey purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Kathy Hey chose Armação de Pêra

We fell in love with the Algarve. And particularly Armacao de Pera. We had been holidaying there for about 6 years & decided to buy our home from home. We let it out for two reasons. We want people to enjoy their holidays as much as we enjoy ours and also it helps pay the bills.

What makes this apartment unique

It is so near the wonderful beach. We fall in love with it again every time we visit. The town has loads of good cheap restaurants or you can dine in with lovely cheap wines.. The roof top pool & huge balcony are great & gives us a great sense of space.

It is furnished with English Furniture & Portuguese décor.

And we feel we have more than an apartment with our huge 130 sq mtr Balcony as we have so much outdoor space.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Spent 3 weeks in this fab apartment and can honestly say it is the best we have ever been to, everything you could ever want Kathy has provided, even cleaning and bed change once a week and Sonja met us for a meet and greet a total first for us when renting privately, so helpful when booking and our transfer was also arranged and everything went smoothly, loved armaco and everything about it, restaurants, beach, and live music on beach most nights.I have a 9 year old son and plenty for him to do also, we spent many hours at the roof top pool which most days we had to ourselves fab, we loved our holiday so much we have booked to return next year.we feel we have found our perfect place. Thanks for everything kathy we loved our summer holiday 2011.

This was my first trip to Portugal and I was over the moon with how lovely Armacao de Pera is, beautiful beaches, wonderful restaurants and our apartment was amazing. This is a true gem and will most definitely be returning. Thanks.

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was so lovely and Kathy and her agents were lovely and helpful. Apartment has everything you need and was spotless and bigger than expected. Pool on the roof was great and often I was only one in there. Terrace was greatly appreciated by my partner. Can't wait to return

Huge terrace is not to be missed.

  • 5 of 5

Me and my partner both loved our stay here last month. The apartment is huge, stylish and well equiped, the photos really do not do it justice. The terrace is the perfect place to either spend the morning sunbathing, or the evenings having a BBQ. It is set back just far enough from the sea front to remain quiet, but close enough to wander down easily. Armacao is very pretty and in a great location, we rented a car and visited other towns along the Algarve. We would definitely recommend the apartment, great value and sure to have a fantastic holiday.

Amazing home from home near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Portugal a number of times and this by far was the best. The apartment is really lovely and has everything you need and more. We felt right at home. The service we received from Kathy before we arrived was second to none and the lovely team she has on the other end who let us into the property and showed us around (may I add exceptionally late at night as our flight was so delayed) and who were so helpful during our stay.

The apartment itself is very spacious, we travelled with our 4 month old baby and found it very easy, it was kitted out with everything you need. We enjoyed most evenings on the terrace having dinner. They have a lovely wood burning BBQ, a beautiful hidden swimming pool on the roof with amazing views for when you need to cool down. Air con, UK TV so we could keep up to date with the news. There are ample grocery stores in walking distance and the beach and cafes/ bars are a lovely short walk away.

This property really does tick all the boxes and we so look forward to visiting again.

Excellent Holiday Apartment1

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do the apartment justice. It's even more impressive in 'the flesh'!

Immaculately presented with everything you would wish for in a top notch holiday accommodation. The terrace is massive and the roof pool is an excellent alternative to the beach on those lazy days.

Additionally, the location is great for all of your needs and Armacao de Pera is a delightful resort full of lovely restaurants.

Lastly, but by no means least, Kathy is a pleasure to deal with.

It is only 5 mins walk (300 mtrs) to the beautiful sandy beaches. The main beach is huge. Miles of soft golden sands is certainly no exaggeration. Pick a main busy beach or a quite secluded cove. Access varies from track & steps to straight onto the beach. There is a beautiful new promenade with lots of lively cafes & shops.One of our favourites is Pedro's on Fishermans beach.There are lots of wonderful Restaurants with english & portuguese cuisine and of course freshly court fish & seafood.

Buses available from Armacao to all over the Algarve & even to Lisbon.
