We would like to say this was the best villa we have been to but in all honesty it fell way short. We have previously stayed in some seriously nice villas through HomeAway. First impression was the cursory tour of the villa - not particularly friendly or welcoming. The villa was clean and tidy and the pool looked amazing.

The real impression started on the first night as the beds were so hard we ended up getting the pool lounger cushions to put on our bed whilst my son felt it would be better to sleep on the marble floor!

Even if this had helped at all, sleep was interrupted, as it was throughout the holiday, with the owners dogs (5 of) barking most nights until 1.30am followed by an encore at about 5.30am. Just as you thought it was ok to snooze about 6am the resident cockrel then started his daily routine joined not long after by the local dogs.

So we got up and made our way to the pool in what was 35-40 degree heat to find daily mounds of cat faeces on the grass areas around the pool. This was baking nicely in the sun and making a lovely playground for the flies to join us round the pool. Not pleasant!

There was about 10 cats and numerous kittens roaming the property which meant the kitchen door had to be kept closed as they were always hanging around and were clearly not fazed by strangers. Whilst we managed to keep the cats out there was little we could do little about the ants! There were numerous infestations throughout the villa which the owners came in once to spray but to no avail. We had to keep the kitchen pretty much food free except for the fridge. We did try and use a bin under the sink but each time the ants just swarmed in (quite literally).

Back at the pool it was nigh on impossible to get 5 people under 1 parasol in the midday heat. 6 loungers, 3 parasol bases, 1 parasol!!! More parasols noted in the owners garden!!

Whilst it would have been ideal to speak to the owner, there was no interaction and their constant loud bickering made it quite impossible to approach.

Whilst the picture of this villa (pool) is beautiful, the outside décor was shabby.

All in all Albufeira was, as always, fabulous. This is a very genuine appraisal on what we encountered and for these reasons we would not return or recommend this villa.

Too much noise, too many cats, too many dogs, hard beds, way too many ants and 1 noisy cockrel!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Michael I am so sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience in Casa Rodrigues and let me answer the points you raised. Previous guests that have stayed in the villa and have given a true and honest feedback of their stay which reflects on their comments of the villa which yours are not entirely correct. When you arrived you and your family were shown round the villa and were made to feel welcome by the Maid. Unfortunately her English is not the best she made you feel welcomed as she gave you some fruit and you had myself as point of contact which you choose not to contact me the owner. The villa does not have any cats and unfortunately previous guests have given food to a couple of stray cats and they have some kittens, so guests are cat lovers they will feed them which is not in our control. The villa is located in a rural location which means other villas around will have dogs. The villa next door only has one dog which does not make a sound. On arrival Mike you were provided with three sun umbrellas after you left and you were given your breakage deposit back we found 2 umbrellas damaged my fault for not checking which we have replaced. The only reason you ended up with one umbrella was because you broke the others. Unfortunately you left food items like cakes, sweets out not sealed which meant antes came round to invade these items and also every day you had loads of bits of food in the sink and Ice cream was spilled on the pool area which attracted antes which Maid came round and sprayed and cleaned the infected areas The maid came round twice to clean this for due to your lack of consideration. The Mattresses in Portugal are harder than the uk as you did not mention to the maid or contacted me to relsolve you hard bed. We could supplied you with a mattress topper to make it softer but as I only know of your issues via these comments We are here to try and help every guest Mr Shackleton to a good stay, unfortunately if we do not know of any issues that one has so one can not resolve any issue. The villa is reasonable priced obviously a brand new villa will have a much higher price this is what you are used too. The villa is not "shabby" and it is well maintained and looked after. I personally think you are not used to the type of villa in a rural location it would be more appropriate you to go to a golf course/ complex villa.

Excellent value for money with a great pool.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely fortnight at this villa. The property is as described and has everything you need. There is plenty out outside areas for sitting and pool was great. The owners were very pleasant and tolerant of our dog during the stay. Perfect for a family. I would recommend the villa for anyone who wants to be away from the nightlife but near enough to access the restaurants and beaches.

Simply brilliant

  • 5 of 5

I don't think I've ever stayed in such a beautiful place. The villa is spacious and spotlessly clean. This property offers peace and quite at an affordable cost. I would without doubt recommend this villa to anyone.

Wonderful, peaceful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week and thoroughly enjoyed the stay.

The house and grounds were lovely and what a treat having that pool to ourselves. It has been a relaxing break that we did not want to leave. Many thanks for the hospitality to all. Very helpful and accommodating. Julie and John. 😎

Beautiful pool and location

  • 4 of 5

This semi-detached villa is lovely, it has amazing spacious rooms and a great garden and pool. All of the rooms are brilliant with all the facilities and equipment etc you need. The communication was amazing and had lots of lovely touches like being given extra driving instructions and being met at the gate with the key. The villa is very secure and in a very quiet location. We used the pool every day, it's a little chilly as expected in October but that didn't bother the children at all. It is very clean and was cleaned half way through the week. The villa grounds have lots of cats, so great for animal lovers too. We would reccomend it, and have only knocked one star off as one member of our group is very frightened of cats. Other than that a beautiful place with great owner.

We loved a beach called Praia da Marinha, which is not far away from the villa. We also had a great day in Seville.

Perfect place to relax

  • 4 of 5

The villa itself is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. We were provided with a cot and high chair for our toddler and the pool is perfect for young children with steps leading in. The top step became our 1 year old's paddling pool! By car most of the sights are within a 30 minutes and the villa is very close to Zoomarine and Krazy World which are great day trips foe kids. A great villa for relaxing and enjoying a beautiful area.
