About Catherine & David

We are David & Catherine & have been married for 15 yrs.’, we have two teenage Daughters , for the last 10 yrs.’ we have dreamed of owning our own holiday home in the sun ,somewhere we can go on yearly holidays & eventually retire to a warmer climate. We have looked at main land Spain, Majorca & all the Canary Islands searching for the right place, but nowhere felt right like home.

We eventually decided to have a change from Spain & try Portugal as we had heard such good things about it, we have been coming to Portugal now for the past 2 yrs.’ & fell in love , The old town is charming and a real treat to walk around the Beautiful beaches the Friendly people, low price of living & warm Mediterranean climate with over 300 days of sun a year ,. We decided to buy an apartment in Albufeira to hopefully one day retire here, & I can say it has been the best thing we have done. We really hope you like our apartment as we have tried to make like home with all our extra touches, We come all year round and we love it. We hope you will too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Catherine and David,

We had a brilliant time in Portugal - your apartment is spacious and comfortable and we loved the setting. Albufeira in the evenings was amazing - easy to walk to and even easier to get back from by taxi !

Exceptional! 5/5 -
(20 traveller reviews)


Such a comfortable and relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment very clean, comfortable and spacious with everything you could possibly need within a wonderfully quiet location on the complex. The apartment is perfectly located between any of it's four beautiful swimming pool areas, the mini market, snack bars and restaurants, all of which are just a tiny walk away.

The old town is a good walk away but a taxi is only 5 euros and gets you there much quicker. The reception staff who are very helpful and friendly, will ring you a taxi for a very small fee and the taxis show up almost instantly so getting a taxi wasn't any hassle at all.

The description of the apartment is true to every word which is what really sold this holiday to us and we were not disappointed. We would recommend this apartment to anyone.

Fantastic stay in Clube Albufeira apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment in a quiet location. Very spacious with everything you could possibly need. Taxis to old town can be booked through reception and cost 4 to 5 euro. Supermarket across the road has a good selection and reasonably priced.

We loved our stay here with everyone preferring the lower pool. The only downside was the wifi. You paid for the use but only one person could use it at any one time. Teenagers not happy with this.

David and Catherine were amazing to work with. So supportive and provided invaluable information. I would highly recommend their apartment.

A real home from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for a week as family of four. The apartment has everything you could need, the air con was invaluable in high temperatures. Clube Albufeira is a well kept complex. The pool areas are large and spotlessly clean and tidy. The pool never felt crowded. We used all 3 complex restaurants and the food and service was very good. Caza Azul even ran a hot buffet evening. I had reservations about the distance between Clube Albufeira and Albufeira itself, however the taxis were simple to access and the reception was helpful for taxis and trips. All in all a very hassle free and relaxing week which was just what we were looking for.

Everything you need and more

  • 5 of 5

From the moment i booked the apartment Catherine & David were so welcoming and helpful. The description of the apartment was spot on...well no in fact it was better than described.

The apartment, was spotlessly clean. There was everything in the kitchen you could ask for and more. There was loads of room. The kingsize bed was great. As usually on holiday its a small double bed. So The en-suite bathroom was brilliant. The other bathroom was beside the twin room - so we each had an ensuite. The apartment is in a quite location. Yet, a stones throw to the nearest pool, which was great. The gardens surrounding the apartment, the swimming pool and the complex were greatly maintained.Thankyou Catherine & David for letting us your apartment. If you are considering staying in Clube Albufeira - dont look past this apartment. You will not be disappointed!!

Fantastic, lovely home for a week

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful apartment - everything we needed and more. Very clean & spacious - especially the living/dining room. Terrace leads out onto a grassed area where our son could play whilst we relaxed in one of the (4) sun loungers provided. Only a minutes' walk from the closest swimming pool and cafe, where the kids club was. The owners were extremely quick to respond to any queries and our deposit was promptly returned following our stay. A quiet spot for a relaxing break, but not far from Albufeira's Old Town - highly recommended.
