About Mairead Ui Cheannabhain

Fáilte chuig Cabanas - yes we are gaeilgeóirs as Gaillimh and BÁC (from Galway and Dublin). We just love this place and hopefully semi retire here eventually. Its easy to get to with flights daily into Faro and we can be in our apt in 35min. We sometimes rent a car but not essential as transport is good and taxi's are reasonable.

Mairead Ui Cheannabhain purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Mairead Ui Cheannabhain chose Tavira region

We just purchased this beautiful apt in this little haven Cabanas, we have been coming here for the past 15 years when our family were young and now they come with their family. We love everything about this peaceful place with the tastiest food and reasonable restaurants. Love love love this place! Enjoy and look after our lovely apt please!! Over the last year we have updated and upgraded with lots of flower and plants planted and also a lovely gazebo on roof terrace

What makes this apartment unique

We always come back from our holidays in Cabanas relaxed and looking forward to going back there again. There is nothing like sitting in our own place now reading or resting, the sunroom is so nice and cosy, all windows have blackout blinds so you can snooze in the afternoon reading your book or paper.

Fabulous home

  • 5 of 5

A real home with many personal touches. Really comfortable & well kitted out. Fabulous balconies that enable you to get sun or shade. Mairead responded quickly to emails & made for an easy booking process. Great location just yards from sea, cafes, restaurants. Fabulous take away next door. Everything is very cheap & met some wonderfully helpful people. Lovely quiet village. All in all a fantastic stay. Thankyou!

fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here despite the weather. I know it does not have an oven but who needs one when you have a takeaway 1 min away where a bbq chicken costs £4.50. you can catch the sun all day and then pick from the many restuarants within a 5 min walk and they are so cheap.

We went to the italian had 1 starter 2 mains 1 bottle of wine and a large beer for £22 you really can't complain about that. The apartment is lovely and clean with a comfortable bed and english TV, all in all you won't find better unless you want to go to the ritz and pay the price. Great value for money and would thoroughly reccommend it. The booking process is easy and mairead always answers your e mails.

Thank you Mairead

It was our first visit to this area of the Algarve and what a fantastic place. So relaxing and chilled out.

A small village yet everything you would need all within walking distance.

Mariead was most helpful and gave us lots of information on restaurants,shops,bars etc.

The apartment was stunning really home from home.

Lovely views from all balconies.

Can,t wait to go back.

Wonderful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous apartment in a great location with great views of the Ria Formosa. We have visited Cabanas many times & stayed in some great apartments but this one tops the lot! Mairead the owner was very helpful with her information on the area with regard to recommending restaurants, train & bus times etc etc. The apartment has four huge balcony's & a huge sun terrace, air condition, a living / dining room. We will certainly be back here in the near future. Ps take the train from up the road (a 10 min walk) to Villa Real a really nice town where you can take a boat over the river Gaurdiana i to Spain if you wish.

Chill Out

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is the ideal place for a relaxing holiday with plenty of home comforts. The outside space is perfect as you can avail of sunshine all day on the spacious balconies and roof terrace. The conservatory area is great for those breezy nights that you sometimes get in Portugal. The location in Cabanas is very convenient to all facilities. There's even a brilliant take away next door if you really feel like relaxing even more!!!! Owner Mairead has been so helpful to us with recommendations for rests etc and sending on timetables for the bus and train. Thank You.

What a find.

  • 5 of 5

I had the privilege of being the first guest to stay here earlier this May and found it to be excellent.

The best things about the apartment are its central position, literally 20m from the seafront and lovely boardwalk alongside the Ria da Formosa, and the 4 terraces. Two of the spacious terraces face east so are great for breakfast/coffee in the morning and the other on the same level runs the whole length of the property, facing south west, so has sun from early afternoon to sunset and has plenty of space for al fresco eating. The roof terrace, approached up a spiral staircase, commands wonderful 360degree views down the Ria to the Islas and up to the hills.

The interior is a spacious apartment for 2 persons with a good foldout bed in the lounge for another 2. The kitchen is well equipped, the lounge comfortable with a wood burner, the bedroom cool, and it has the advantage of a sunny dining area to one side. All the windows and patio doors have manual shutters and most have mosquito screens. Being on the 3rd floor means that not only are the views superb, but the breeze keeps it cool. As it has clearly been someones home, it has a homely feel with interesting furniture and paintings – not a bare holiday let.

If you don’t know Cabanas I shouldn’t tell you as it should really be kept secret! (This was my 4th visit in 16 months) A superb, genuine fishing village with a harmonious level of tourism, a beautiful Ria, superb beaches accessed mainly by the 5 minute small boat trip, plenty of small restaurants and good value snack bars open from 0700 to the early hours (but not rowdy). It has a pleasantly lively atmosphere in early and late season, but I understand that August is pretty manic. Excellent cycling along the Ria da Formosa track, good rail connections both east and west and a good choice of interesting places to visit outside the village. A 10 minute drive up into the hills takes you to nearly deserted places with good views down to the coast.

..and the big plus is that the local people are genuinely friendly.
