About the property

Private Villa in Vilamoura, Central Algarve, Portugal Private Gardens, Pool, BBQ, Pool Table, Tv/DVD, Air-con , 10 Mins Walk To Beach, Marina

'Superb location' catering for large groups of adults and families looking to celebrate together.

The exclusive Vilamoura resort area offers a fabulous diversity of experiences, from the quiet pine forest ambles and Atlantic beaches, to the glamorous Yacht Marina, casino, shooting club, tennis club, riding school and a choice of nightclubs.

The main attractions are the marina, beach, many PGA standard golf courses and Aquashow water park. The area's past is brought to the forefront with a preserved Roman site and the Museum of Cerro da Vila.

This traditional 1970's villa is the closest privately owned villa to the marina making the shortest possible walk to the marina, town, shops and restaurants.

It is set in beautiful south facing gardens with its own private pool (Heating and child safety fence available additional charges apply), Sun loungers, Charcoal BBQ, & 3 terraces overlooking the pool.

There is also a pool table, 2 lounge rooms, Tv/DVD, PS3, wi-fi and air-con in every bedroom.

The local golf courses are all within a 1km radius (5 min car/taxi ride).

Transport/Transfers can be organised.

We do not recommend young children use the basement level as the interior staircase is very steep.

Please also note the swimming pool is not fenced off and there is no lifeguard, the pool is used at your own risk so children / non swimmers will need to be supervised at all times. We offer a child safety fence for the pool which can be fitted prior to your arrival if you have small children for a fee of £50.

Also please check photographs and be aware 1 bedroom in the basement is self-contained and doesn't have a window.

The villa sleeps 17 ppl in standard beds, and a further 4 people in 2 X double sofa beds so that makes our 21 person recommendation. We also have 2 portable fold out beds (65KG weight limit) which sleep a further 2 people.

Bedroom 1 = King (ensuite)

Bedroom 2 = King + single (shared family bathroom)

Bedroom 3 = twin (shared family bathroom)

Bedroom 4 = King + single (ensuite)

Bedroom 5 = twin (shower room in corridor)

Bedroom 6 = double + single (ensuite)

Bedroom 7 = twin (ensuite)

Basement lounge = double sofa bed

Main lounge = double sofa bed

(Optional 2 X fold out singles, single futon, 4 travel cots for babies)

We have a single futon and 2 small fold out beds all of which can be placed in any room and are suitable for someone 65kg or under.

We also have 4 travels cots and 2 highchairs available but please bring your own bedding for the cots due to risks associated with SIDS we do not provide these.

Perfect for my hen do - will be returning for group holidays

  • 5 of 5

The villa is lovely. Super spacious, gorgeous gardens, great sized pool, plenty of sun loungers and seating/dining areas.

It’s only a short walk down to the Marina

18 women all in one house and at no point did we feel cramped in.

Had an absolutely amazing time!

Great Location, Great Villa, Great Value

  • 5 of 5

I'm always sceptical when it comes to online holiday accommodation pictures, but if anything, the pictures underplayed how nice it was to stay here. Large grounds, a good size pool and fairly modern tech in terms of Wifi, Air Con, etc. There is a security system which is reassuring and the villa is only a 10 minute walk to the main marina. A big plus was how engaged the owner was from the moment of my initial enquiry and they provide you with a large and comprehensive user guide for your trip. A great property for a large grouping.

Excellent family get away - perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This villa was perfect for our group of mixed ages within 4 generations of our family. It was very clean, and more modern than the online pictures reflect, I think the decor and some furniture has been modernised since the pictures were taken. there was loads of space that you don’t see on the pictures and the villa was well stocked with all utensils you may need. The interior stairs to the basement are too steep for small children or elderly people but the outdoor staircases are very safe so we used those mainly to access this floor. The pool area is beautiful and the pool heating was a bonus at this time of year otherwise I don’t think we could have braved it. Being so close to the marina meant we could all come and go to the beach and town as we pleased, or on mass. Victoria was very friendly and helpful When planning our trip. Nuno was excellent for transfers and online continente supermarket delivery saved us a lot of hassle I would certainly recommend that to future guests. Thank you for a fantastic good value holiday we would definitely like to return soon.

Disappointing. Villa not to the standard I was expecting

  • 3 of 5

Good location within walking distance to the Marina. However this isn't a luxury villa. Strong musty smell of damp, particularly on the lower level. Tricky twisting stairs were difficult for some of the group who were staying downstairs. Shower heads either missing or damaged. Some external areas had not been cleaned and areas of plaster work needed repairing. Bedding clean and kitchen well kitted out. Built up area with road noise. Despite our initial disappointment we had a good time, regardless of the points already mentioned. I feel it isnt really worth the money and would not necessarily recommend it as it does not tally with the current description in the advert. Its not a LUXURY VILLA.

Owner's Response: thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. My apologies that the villa did not meet your expectations and I will be forwarding your comments about the musty smell and shower heads to our cleaning company, who are usually excellent. If you had brought these issues to our attention during your stay we certainly would have rectified it for you. I would like to point out the villa is not advertised as a 'luxury villa' and I certainly wouldn't claim that, or want guests to expect that. It's advertised as a 'large villa'. It is advertised as being in a prime location, as you confirm, within walking distance of the luxury vilamoura resort and Marina. As noted in previous reviews the description and photographs are a true representation of the villa and as all other guests have been extremely happy (including the guests staying the week before and after yourselves) I can only assume you misread the description. The villa is located in a residential area, it is near to the road, it would not be so close to the marina if it were in a rural secluded location. The location of the villa is accurate on the map on the listing. Also your friend visited the villa prior to your stay so I would have thought your group expected this residential location. Our pricing structure is designed to provide value for money and equates to £30 pp per night at capacity so I don't think guests normally expect luxury for this price. I am pleased you still had a good time and enjoyed your holiday.
