About Lee Kay

I live in North Devon, South West England with my 17yr old son.

I am a DJ/Producer and also run a business importing furniture from China and sell through my website www.contemporaryfurniture-uk.co.uk

I have furnished this apartment in Portugal to a very high standard with the funky contemporary furniture I have come to love.

I believe it really compliments the contemporary architecture of the apartment and complex as a whole.

Lee Kay purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Lee Kay chose Vilamoura

After years of searching for the right place in Spain and not finding anything, I started to look at Portugal, I instantly fell in love with the place, everything is so clean, and the grass and trees are green and being irrigated properly, unlike the brown landscape of so much of Spain, I felt like it was home from home.

Vilamoura in particular is stunning, its nicknamed the millionaires playground, and you really do feel like you are a part of something special when you are there, and although you are surrounded by beautiful Yachts worth millions, the price of food&drink is still very reasonable and affordable for everyone! The beaches are clean and you can find quiet time away from the crowds just as easy as you can find busy, buzzing nightlife and an all round great atmosphere.

What makes this apartment unique

This property is in a quiet position, away from noise and crowds, but it is still close enough to walk to a beach, bar, restaurant and busy marina.

The fact that it is so spacious also means there is room to get some quiet time even from your own family too!! Each room has its own terrace, and the roof terrace is amazing, I can sit up there for hours quite happily drinking wine, soaking up the sunshine and admiring the views!

The lower terrace is great for entertaining, its so big, with built in BBQ and dining table and chairs, there is also table tennis and dart board, here the kids can play safely while the adults sit around and relax while tending to the BBQ.

The weather is great most of the year round which is a welcome break from the rainy UK!

clean and spacious accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well equipped spacious accommodation with plenty of decks for out door living. Any problems were quickly and efficiently dealt with. Good location with easy access to all parts of the Algarve and Faro airport. Supermarkets nearby. The local town Quarteira is charming and has good restaurants and shops and a superb beach. Don't miss the gypsy market on Wednesdays - great bargains!!

What a lovely place to stay.Shaded areas for me and plenty of sun for the the wife.

Have stayed in Villamoura many times in recent years,and can honestly say the best value for money we have seen. Everything is close at hand and only a few euros to marina by taxi.

Would certainly recommend to friends and family.Hope to return again.

Fantastic Apartment !!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment as a family of 4 for 10 nights and absolutely loved it. We were met by Duncan who showed us around and gave us loads of information on the local area. It was lovely as we arrived late to find provisions including a bottle of wine !!! The apartment itself really is stunning, the rooms are large and modern and everything is spotless. The large patio was fantastic for relaxing, table tennis, bbq's etc and the roof terrace is a real bonus with fabulous views and is lovely place to star gaze at night.We spent most days by the pool as although it was peak season we often had the pool to ourselves, the beaches at both Vilamoura and Quarteria are lovely. We didn't hire a care and managed fine without one, it was around a 20 minute stroll down to Vilamoura Marina and less to Quarteria. There are local shops and restaurants a few minutes walk from the apartment which were also great. I have recommended the apartment to my family and friends if they are heading off the Vilamoura as I can't imagine finding a better place to stay and if we visit again we will definitely be booking this apartment. Lee the owner was a pleasure to deal with and I cannot recommend the apartment highly enough, we had a fantastic time staying there !!

Lovely apartment: good location

  • 4 of 5

Property was light and spacious. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.

Loved the different levels: having time away from my 3 boys was lovely on occasion.

Area had all we needed for a great holiday, enjoyed the beaches, various activities quads, family golf, etc. Such a great selection of restaurants with great views.

Boys loved excellent wifi( a must for children these days) and table tennis table and of course the pool! Even produced a synchro swimming performance: never laughed so much!

Portugal and this location and apartment all worth returning too!

Beatifully restful stay in a lovely appartment

  • 3 of 5

The Apartment and pool were perfect, Everything you could need for a chilled out break. It was a 20 minute walk to the beach and most of the restaurants which was just right for me to get a bit of exercise a few times a day! Taxis were easily available , we were going to a wedding so got taxis occasionally, but the walk is lovely. I would love to return to this apartment it was great for the money!

Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

The Algarve has something to offer everyone, with its natural beauty, and wealth of history. There are many places of interest to visit, and plenty of variety when eating out or looking for entertainment. It is well worth exploring the coastline and embracing the culture of the many quaint little fishing villages. The local dish is ‘Cataplana’, a mixed seafood platter which is delicious! Or why not travel a little bit inland and get to see a little of the traditional, rustic village life of that of the local farmers and fruit growers?

Down in the marina you can find boat trips a plenty including sightseeing trips to local tourist spots, go dolphin and whale watching, try water sports like jet skiing, parascending and deep sea fishing, even big game fishing. There are many sporting facilities located here. Soccer and tennis are very popular, and there is also a shooting range.


3 minute drive or 15 minute walk to beaches, Quartiera and Vilamoura beaches are beautiful and you can walk or cycle from one to the other.


This apartment is only 25 minutes from Faro airport. I recommend using Zitauto car rental, They are by far the cheapest and the best service, they meet you at the airport and there is no need to pay any deposit or have your credit card scanned, you simply hand over the cash and they give you the keys!! (Google Zitauto to find website)


You can get to all amenities including beach and marina in 3 minutes with a car....

Or you can walk to Vilamoura 'Old village' where there is some lovely buildings,shops and restaurants (15minutes)

Walk into Quarteira town where there are loads of shops, bars and restaurants and beautiful prominade (15 minutes)

And walk to Vilamoura marina or beach where there is an abundance of wonderful bars, restaurants and clubs (15 minutes)

Further Details:

Aquashow (Aquapark) is only 2 mins drive away which is great fun for all the family.

There is an abundance of watersports, sightseeing trips and fishing trips available from the marina, or if you fancy a quiet night in then there is a good selection of DVD's and books at the apartment for adults and children of all ages.

There are also some board games including Cranium, monopoly, scrabble, connect 4, snakes & ladders, ludo, pass the pigs and playing cards!!

A welcome pack including Tea, coffee, milk, juice, bread, crisps and a bottle of wine will be waiting for you upon arrival, just in case its late when you get there so that you can relax after your travel without needing to go shopping already!!
