A fabulous family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We really couldn't have asked for more when arriving at this beautiful apartment. With 2 small children, easy is at the top of the wish list for holidays and this certainly was. The apartment was spotlessly clean, beautifully renovated and decorated and huge!! It was in a perfect spot for the beach, pool and exploring further afield. A real home from home. We will most certainly be back next year. Thanks for all your help Maria, we loved it!

Pristine accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Returned to vale do lobo after being there in July this year on a family holiday. Came this time with my eldest son who is a very keen tennis player. Rented Maria and Lee's apartment for the first time and certainly won't be the last. Location was perfect for tennis academy which is literally minutes away. Academy is amazing with excellent coaches and facilities. The apartment is immaculate throughout and extremely modern and luxurious. Couldn't have asked for a more comfortable apartment. The photos don't do it justice. Even my son gave it a 'wow' when we opened the door for the first time! Couldn't find fault with anything. Twenty minutes walk to the beach which is simply beautiful. Even saw a pod of dolphins swimming so close to the shore one day. Maria was so helpful from start to finish and therefore I would recommend anyone to rent from her.

Thank you Maria and Lee. It was a privilege to stay in your beautiful home. Looking forward to returning next year for sure. x

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our holiday at 859D so much the apartment has every thing and more than mentioned in the listing, beautifully furnished equipped and spotlessly clean, The owners were so easy to contact and thought of everything in their information pack, perfect. The resort itself is so peaceful and tranquil and in the evening the restaurants and entertainment in the Praca are perfect. The service offered by the circuit bus is amazing.

Thank you again

A highly recommended apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is exactly as described. It is very clean and well looked after and has great amenities. We felt at home as soon as we arrived - we have two small children (who loved the film choices available on the Apple TV!) and the apartment was perfect for us, plenty of room for all 4 of us.

We had great communication from the owner throughout, even offering restaurant recommendations, and cannot fault their customer service.

Vale de Lobo is a really nice resort, with restaurants, swimming pools and the beach and kids club all within easy reach.

We had a great week and would highly recommend this apartment.
