A couple of minutes' level walk brings you to the waterside village boardwalk, with its enormous range of restaurants, street cafes, and shops.

The little daily market sells fresh fish, vegetables and fruit, - there's also a butcher and several local supermarkets to stock up on freshly baked bread and other treats - so you can dine equally well "at home" if desired.

The charming town of Tavira is not to be missed, and you can even pop over to Spain for the day. Free off-road car-parking is available outside both our holiday boltholes.

The perfect holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the BeachHut Was absolutely perfect. It was just as described or probably even better. The apartment is beautifully furnished with everything you could need and on the doorstep of the most beautiful beach.

Restaurants in abundance to suit every taste and the only regret we had is we only booked for five nights!

We will definitely be going back next year and staying at the Beach Hut. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Fiona for making our stay perfect.

Seashell Studio - Brilliant

  • 5 of 5

We managed a visit to the beach, a boat trip to Octupus Capital, a Tuk Tuk tour of Tavira, a gentle circular walk to Conceicao and back, a visit to Fort San Joao da Barra and eat at most of the resturants here. We found all the Resturants excellent venues to eat at. The accommodation was quiet and cosy but not

too far away from the complex facilities.

Perfect hideaway with access to amenities

  • 5 of 5

A perfect hideaway yet has access to great amenities. The apartment balcony has beautiful views over the lagoon towards the sea. It is compact but well laid out with absolutely everything to hand. The owner has thought of everything to ensure a comfortable stay. Many thanks.

An apartment with a stunning view.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a most enjoyable week at this apartment. Everything you needed was provided as stated in the description. Views from the balcony are stunning, it felt very relaxing watching the the boats go buy and the fishermen going out early in the morning. Fiona the owner was very helpful and was available if there were any problems. We have already booked to spend another week at the apartment in October!

Simply Fantastic

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful apartment, the location is spot on!!! Fabulous views from the balcony of the little boats and sea. short walk to brilliant range of restaurants, bars and cafes. (We spent a lot of time in a cafe right on the front called Vitaminas, well priced homecooked food, we even went for breakfast!!) The apartment itself is styled incredibly well and Fiona has made best use of the space and layout. Everything is clean and modern, the bathroom could maybe do with a refresh, but having said that I was quite happy, and believe you me I am ultra fussy. My husband and I had a wonderful relaxing week, we spent a lot of time in the apartment because the weather was a bit mixed, the atmosphere and comfort of the apartment meant that we were able to relax and read, watch the boats from the balcony, without feeling that we needed to go out.

Well done Fiona, I wish we could discover more gems like yours, goes without saying that we will be back!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Kay&Graham - Thanks so much for your lovely comments and I'm so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. I do agree the bathroom needs some refreshing and we're looking to get that done over the winter. It's true our location is perfect for enjoying all that Cabanas village has to offer and I'm particularly pleased that you felt comfortable and "at home" in the apartment - as that's my aim. Hope to be able to welcome you again another time.

Apartment with Views

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at The Beach Hut for a number of reasons. It is very well located, being within a few minutes walk from shops, restaurants and bus stop as well as from the beach and lagoon. There is a delightful board walk alongside the lagoon with lots of opportunities for strolling while enjoying the views. Parking is very easy immediately outside the building. There are endless opportunities too for sightseeing, whether crossing the border into Spain, visiting the beautiful town of Tavira or Faro itself. Or you could take boat trips to Tavira of a ferry across to the beach. There are also numerous unspoilt villages where the way of life has barely changed in centuries.

What we particularly love about the eastern Algarve is its unspoilt nature and authenticity, a million miles away from big, brash tourist resorts. The wild flowers in spring are amongst the best, if not the best we have experienced anywhere in Europe. There are also numerous walking opportunities of great variety, from pristine beaches to quiet rivers, lofty hilltops and rural footpaths leading from one little hamlet to another.

The apartment itself is charming, very clean and comfortable and it is obvious that a great deal of thought and care has gone into the provision of everything one could possibly need. We like to prepare our own meals and were delighted to find good quality pans, sharp knives, even olive oil and vinegar provided. Hot water was always plentiful and the beds particularly comfortable. We like to read and very much appreciated good reading lights in both the living and bedrooms.

A great highlight for us was breakfast in the sunshine on the balcony, watching the boats and life on the water. We travelled around a lot during our stay, using the fantastic motorway as much as possible - well worth the cost in our view with very little traffic, making for very enjoyable driving. We spent most of our time walking and followed some of the excellent routes provided by the Algarve's Tourist Offices. Some are even waymarked to assist in route-finding.

We were sorry to leave, well aware that there was still much to explore. We would certainly recommend the Beach Hut and very much hope to return ourselves before long. We have stayed in many self-catering establishments over the years, from 5-bedroomed villas to campervans. We would certainly rate the Beach Hut as among the very best.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review, June. Although the apartment is tiny, we've tried to ensure it's super-comfortable and provides those little touches that make guests feel at home. We're delighted also that you enjoyed exploring the area - we agree with you: the Eastern Algarve is a jewel :) Look forward to welcoming you again.
