About Elizabeth Cooke

I was enchanted by the village of Carvoeiro when I came to live here 15 years ago. I love the changing seasons which attracts different visitors. The Summer brings the hustle and bussle of happy holiday makers, enjoying the live music on the square, the warm ocean and the beautiful sandy beaches. The Autumn feels like a second Spring in the year when I take my dogs on my favourite walks along the cliffs. I love the flowers that bloom in this period of the year. In Winter time I concentrate on conquering the never ending challenge of golf. When the Spring time comes, this encourages me to take out my paint brush to capture the beauty of the emerging spring flowers. All year long I so enjoy meeting friends for a light lunch or a glass of wine at one of the delightful terraces.

Why Elizabeth Cooke chose Carvoeiro area

I came upon Casa Eliza purely by chance and fell in love with it. The roof terrace is wonderful with fabulous views of the sea and Carvoeiro. All this only less than a 5 minute walk from the village square.

What makes this apartment unique

The unique location of the apartment in the vicinity of beach, bars and restaurants makes your holiday effortless. The large sweeping balcony around two sides of the property and a spacious roof terrace of 45 square meters, makes Casa Eliza perfect for dining, relaxing on a sun bed or just enjoying the amazing views.

The swimming pool with sun lounges includes a paddle pool and is on your doorstep. It is only shared by 12 apartments.

The roomy apartment is well equipped for all your needs to help make your holiday stress free, happy and memorable.

We were stunned by how perfect the apartment was, it really is luxurious. It is even better than the photographs. The roof terrace is an added bonus, just perfect. We have already booked for 4 weeks next year. Liz is lovely and eager to attend to any issues (not that we had any) and the welcome pack was a nice surprise.

10 Star Accommodation

Have just come back from staying at Liz's apartment and have to say that the apartment was absolutely amazing. Everything was immaculate and the roof terrace was fantastic to enjoy a glass of wine and soak up the rays. Liz was an absolute delight to deal with from initial enquiry to checking out and the welcome pack was a bonus. I just now have to find a slot to book for next year. Lee

What a lovely welcome from Liz. The apartment shows her little artistic touches and was spacious and spotless. Close to shops and restaurants, but in a quiet location. Book early to avoid disappointment!

Probably the best 1 bedroom on the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

We have opted for self-catering apartments in preference to hotels for years now, and we have to say this place knocks all others into a cocked hat as far as quality in concerned. It's superb in every department: location, facilities and warmth of welcome. If proof is needed, try and find a clear week to book this place out next year !. The main season is booked out completely, and almost certainly by returning guests. Lovely, lovely apartment , worth every penny.

Fantastic 5 star

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at Casa Elisa for 12 days, my wife and I can only confirm what has already been written in the previous reviews, that they are spot on. Fantastic lady, superb location, extremely well catered and maintained apartment. Also must agree about the bed, best nights sleep we have had on holiday for a long time. We wanted to take it home but I think the excess luggage might have been a bit much. Would have no hesitation in recommending friends and family in staying here if they are visiting Carveiro. Once again Liz thanks for making our stay a pleasurable one.

beautiful modern property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at casa Eliza last week and can't wait to book our next stay there. From start to finish Liz was a wonderful and welcoming host, we were made to feel extremely welcome. we were attracted to the apartment because it looked so fresh and modern - it was completely refurbished in 2014. It looked lovely on the web-site but was even better in real life: spotlessly clean and there was absolutely nothing it lacked. all the furnishings were new and modern and very tasteful. we were absolutely delighted to find we had a huge super-king size bed which was actually more comfortable than our own (and ours is a good one) - so often in holiday-lets you get a hard flat mattress so this was a real bonus. We spent lots of time on our two terraces and also the roof terrace which was lovely for a glass of wine in the evening to catch the last rays. it was only a 5 minute stroll into town and to the beach and there are many lovely restaurants to choose from- we favoured the more traditional Portuguese ones, Vimar bar and restaurant being a particular favourite along with mar da fora and o pescador. it was nice to have the option of the pool as well: lots of sun loungers and a relief not to suffer the 'towels at dawn' scenario and the rush for sun beds. one afternoon we were the only ones there. Liz also provided us with a welcome pack of fresh groceries and a very nice bottle of chilled wine for which we were extremely grateful. All in all a great stay in a beautiful apartment - we look forward to our next visit
