•Review Submitted: 19-Jun-2013 We have again to Marks lovely apartment and this time it was even nicer as renovations had been carried out and some new furnishings and white goods added. The apartment is in an ideal location near to all the amenities but not noisy. It has everything you need for your holiday.

We hired a car and parking was no problem, we always managed to get a space.

Although a little early in the season to use the pool this time we have in past vists used it and although it is shared the other apartments do not seem to use it so we had a large private pool to urselves and this time even though we didn't use the pool the pool area is a nice option for sitting in the sun.

If you have not been to Carvoerio before you will have a pleasant surprise it is unspoilt but still with lots of restaurants, bars etc, The beach is lovely and there are some amazing cliff top walks to the many other lovely beaches along the coast. Be sure to but some oranges from the vender.

Great location for our holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week 19th - 26th Sept 2016 at Mark's apartment. Booking the stay was no problem through Mark via email. All the info given was correct and apartment and facilities were as advertised.

This is our 4th visit to Carvoeiro and the apartment is spot on placement wise to be in walking distance of everything. There are plenty of steep hills around here so where this apt is you are no more than a 5 min walk to the beach and on the edge of Restaurant Hill so plenty of bars and restaurants en-route.

The apartment was well fitted for the 3 of us and suited our needs. As we were only there a week we ate out every night so can’t say how well the kitchen was equipped, but it seemed to have a lot of cups plate’s glasses etc. The roof terrace is up a couple of flights of stairs and has a brick bbq, table and chairs and is quite private.

The pool was just round the back of the apartment up a short hill in an enclosed garden and we practically had it to ourselves every day. Mark has his own sunbeds, mats and umbrella, so you would always have a bed even if it was to get packed.

Even in September the restaurants were very busy still and we made reservations earlier in the week for 2-3 places. We can recommend Elliotts, Happy’s, A Marisqueira, and Le Cro. We would have also liked to try Ele & Ela and A Gale but these were both fully booked. We enjoyed our meal at The Wolf steak restaurant but it was very pricey, and the fillet and T-bone my partner had in the smaller cheaper places was just as good. A Marisqueira did the best bbq sword fish, and Elliotts has really good fillet with peppercorn sauce. Well, safe to say you won’t go hungry in Carvoeiro!

We would definitely come back here again and stay at one of Marks apartments.

Many thanks – Cara & Mike

Lovely spacious apartment, walking distance to eve

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Carvoeiro the holiday in Carvoeiro was a great success, and the apartment met all our expectations. The apartment was everything we needed and is very clean and tidy (Very nice). We liked the large roof terrace where you could also barbecue. Located in a quiet street just around the corner from shops and restaurants and bars all within 2 minutes’ walk and the beach is only a 5 minutes’ walk away. There is no air con, but did not need it even in even in July, the apartment is cool and fans are provided free of charge in all rooms. Lots of places to eat and a nice touch to have a free bottle of wine arranged by Mark at local restaurants. In short, a must. Parking was absolutely fine near the apartment. The pool was well used by us and most of the time we had the sole use of it. We called Lisa on leaving Faro airport who met us on arrival at the apartment and was very friendly and informative.

Contact with the owner was very good. Mark was very helpful at all times (Thanks Mark and Lisa)

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Booking this apartment was stress free and simple, Mark was very helpful at all times. The apartment is exactly how it appears on the pictures - everything is clean and tidy. Lisa met us on arrival and was very friendly and informative. We got lost leaving Faro airport and I called Lisa who was very helpful. The location of the apt is spot on, it was central yet quiet. I stayed here with 3 friends and it's perfect for a girly getaway. We hired a car and explored the amazing beaches nearby - parking was absolutely fine near the apartment. Carvoeiro is a great town, so if you are planning a visit, I would highly recommend this apartment. (There is no air con which we knew but it did get quite hot at night - fans are provided though ). Thanks Mark and Lisa!

Enjoyable stay in Carvoeiro

  • 4 of 5

Onze vakantie in Carvoeiro was een groot succes. Het weer was prachtig en het appartement voldeed aan onze verwachtingen. Erg prettig vonden wij het grote dakterras waar je ook mocht barbecuen. Ligging in een rustige straat maar om de hoek een leuke straat met winkels en restaurantjes. Binnen 5 minuten loop je naar het strand. Het contact met de eigenaar was bijzonder goed. Kortom, een aanrader.

Everything you want

  • 5 of 5

If you want a home from home apartment, this is the place to stay. It has everything you have at home and more. The entire apartment is comfy and spacious. The beds are very comfortable, the first holiday in years where we haven't woke with back ache!

The pool is well maintained and a bonus that Mark has his own sunbeds and parasols. There is a selection of goodies for the beach and pool which are good quality and very useful.

Lots of places to eat and a nice touch to have a free bottle of wine arranged by Mark at local restaurants.

A definite return visit for us...can't wait to go back.

Walking distance to everything

  • 4 of 5

Apt is ideally situated just 250m from centre of Carvoiero and the beach. It is uphill but manageable though, we were with my inlaws who are in there sixties and it was fine, but maybe not if you have mobility issues. The apt itself is a fine size, we had a 3 year old with us also and it didn't feel cramped (babychair and spacious cot provided). The pool is actually about 20m away around the corner, but we had it to ourselves most days, there were 3 people there the busiest day. Didn't really use the roof terrace as it was too warm for me, but has a bbq and is a nice area if you are more used to the heat than I am!

Main advantage is location, walking distance to bars and restaurants, so no need for taxis. Mark was very good to deal with, it was my first time renting from an owner and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.

Best restaurants we visited were Ele & Ela, Onze & Taste.
