About Simon & Lynn

I relocated to Portugal in September 2001 to take up a position in Lisbon. In 2003 I moved down to the Algarve and rented this apartment for four years before buying it in 2007. I have used it as my home now for eight years and have recently returned to spend more time back in the UK.

I have made many friends in the Algarve and love the place. Returned back there four times in 2014 and can't wait to return in 2015.

Simon & Lynn purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Simon & Lynn chose Vilamoura

I have been visiting Portugal for the past 35 years on and off to play golf and holiday. I saw Vilamoura grow up from nothing to what it is today 'the largest man made resort in Europe'. Now internationally famous for its five golf courses it has so much more to offer all of which have a strong outdoor sport theme. It now has offers approx 24 miles of pedestrian and cycling routes, circuit training with dedicated stations, swimming, tennis, water sports, golden beaches or just chillin out under the blue skies.

Comforting to know when you arrive there is no long drive from Faro Airport - just 25 minutes by car or take a private transfer.

What makes this apartment unique

In a word: convenience. The apartment backs directly into the garden and is like having an additional room. Easy to keep on eye on the small ones as they play by the pool. Having a bathroom the same level as the pool is a real bonus. The terrace has a lovely table with four chairs and parasol for some al-fresco dining.

Alternatively simply walk down the main Avenida to the Marina or enjoy the various restaurants and bars on offer across the road.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We love that the apartment is on the ground floor so we can wake up with the morning sun and just walk out to the pool to enjoy a refreshing dip before breakfasting on the lovely terrace watching the world wake up, and even in the busy holiday time the pool area is rarely very busy and there is plenty of space for everyone to enjoy the beautiful garden with sparkling pool. Only a pleasant 15-20 minute walk through landscaped pathways is Vilamoura Marina with its smart cosmopolitan harbour, designer shops, bars and a variety of fantastic restaurants, cafes, bars and night life – we enjoy nothing better than sitting in one of the waterside bars listening to the chill out music and people watching! - Phil & Helen Crowther

Amazing first family holiday. Great location for couples and families, had a lot on offer!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family holiday abroad with a 3 and 7 year old. We were met by Ian who was not only very welcoming and showed us around the apartment but he also took my husband in the car to show him where the local shop and pharmacy was. Nothing was ever too much for Ian who was always at the end of a phone to answer any of our questions.

The apartment itself exceeded our expectations. Generous in size and all you need for a family holiday. The pool is right outside the apartment and your own sun beds are provided.

The area of the apartment is spot on. Not to far away from the marina but far enough that your not on the doorstep to it. There is a lovely complex across the road with a spar, breakfast place which makes the best pancakes, very amazing restaurant on the corner beside spar (always book to avoid disappointment) and also parky's bar.

Had the most amazing 11 days away in Simon's apartment and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. We hope to be back again next year.

Owner's Response: Hi Shaun, Delighted you all had such a great time and the children were able to access the pools safely from the ground floor terrace. The small complex across the road keeps improving, like the nearby Marina, and I didn't know about those pancakes! Look forward to you all returning soon.

Lovely property - well equipped, clean, spacious and great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 10days at the property in June with our 3 year old. The apartment was very clean and spacious. Well equipped - good cooking facilities plus bbq, a load of DVDs to keep up entertained and lovely terrace to eat on / relax as well as the garden / pool.

The apartment is about 15 mins walk from the marina so away from the bustle it close enough to enjoy what Villamoura has to offer. We rented bicycles from the travel office over the road which were great for getting around.

Simon kindly made some restaurant recommendations which were great - we ate out at a few which were all excellent.

Good mini golf nearby and the cafe over the road did lovely pastries

A thoroughly enjoyable stay - would definitely recommend the apartment. Simon could not have been more helpful through the process.

Total relaxation!!

  • 5 of 5

Home from home accommodation was the icing on the cake for our visit to Los Arcos - the pool area extends from the terrace giving the feeling that this is your own personal space.Location to the harbour, with its superb restaurants is a strolling distance away - which is just what you need after a day of inactivity. The beach has fantastic clean sand and lifeguards - perfect with children in mind. The property is 2 mins from a well stocked supermarket and authentic local restaurant. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to all - couples, family's or someone just wanting to get away. Believe me you'll love it!

Owner's Response: You finally made it to Vilamoura - it's been a longtime coming! Delighted you had such a great time. Thought the beach and Marina would come up to expectation especially to someone who lives on the lovely Fylde coastline. Your dates are confirmed for 2016.

Wecloming apartment with the lot

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for nearly 3 weeks in July. Our stayed kicked ff well when we arrived and the kitchen was stocked with a load of basics - that madea smooth and easy start.

The blacony is a good size, good BBQ and outdoor table setting, perfect for those warm evenings.

It is a ground floor apartment so you can just stroll out to the pool with ease.

We were there oustide of school holidays and the place wa really quiet. Perfect as we were there with our 2 young kids. We made friends with some of the permanent residents who were very friendly.

Internet worked well.

The only downside of the location is 5 minute drive to the marina and 5 minute drive to the beach. However there are shops, resaurants, cafes across the road.

Simon was very helpful and a great host.

Recommended.

Thank you

A chilled week

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at Faro airport to be greeted by Yellowfish transfers we felt relaxed and at ease, a short journey to Vilamoura where our host Andy was waiting to show us around our apartment. The apartment is home from home, great facilities, warm, inviting, every amenity that could be needed. The surroundings and the pool area are extremely well maintained, clean and inviting.

We had a fabulous week exploring some great restaurants, beach bars, beaches and the Marina, local supermarkets and a great bar Parky's, only a few 100 yards away. We would without hesitation return to this property.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in Vilamoura. What a beautiful and peaceful place with everything you need in a holiday! The apartment was lovely with a great ground floor balcony that lead to the pool and sun bed area. Both the beach and marina were great places to visit with excellent restaurants. A perfect holiday! I will never stay in a hotel or package holiday resort now that I have experienced this.
