Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, great location, Andy the host made the week stress free, he even sorted beautiful blue skies and sunshine for us for the week, we also asked Andy to transfer us to and from the airport, the apartment is well equiped for a self catering holiday, with a large comfy king size bed and wifi, the apartment is in a quiet residential area, we found a walkway opposite the apartment that leads direct to the sea front approx 10 minute stroll. Andy showed on arrival the pool area we had access to, this was again a 10 minute stroll from the apartment , the pool area was quiet , we found the couple that run the pool bar very friendly bar snacks good and reasonable priced

We both had a very pleasant stay in Andys apartment , we will be booking again,

Lovely appartment

  • 5 of 5

This appartment is just perfect for couples,its notvto far from the fishermans beach and restaurants ect.It is well equipped with everything you need for a self catering stay.There is english tv and lots of channels to choose from.There is a balcony at the front overlooking the street and a balconyoff the bedroom overlooking a private courtyard belonhing to the neighbors which I think is a little strange if you want to sit out there,not very private if they are out there also.This area is mostly residential ,only down side is the dogs that bark and set one another off.I would definitely stay here again even with the barking dogs .All in all a very nice apartment.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment. We had a really comfortable stay here, Andy was great, picked us up from the airport and dropped us off, showed us where the pool was, provided a cot and a baby seat also! He is one of the friendliest guys and nothing was too much trouble. Apartment was a little walk down to the main square and beach just away from the hustle and bustle from the centre. Taxi was 5€ from the town and near bus stop to go to all the main attractions. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay here and will be returning in the future.

Thanks Andy,

Matt, laura and olivia x

Fantastic location and apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment and location. Everything inside that you would need. Short walk to the old town with several small bars on the way. Andy was fantastic. He picked us up from the airport, showed us around the apartment, took us to the pool and dropped us at the supermarket. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend the apartment.

Just perfect

  • 4 of 5

Had an amazing time in Albufiera Old Town. The apartment was clean and well maintained. The beds were the most comfortable we have ever had whilst on holiday! The apartment is well located with only a 10 minute walk to the beach, restaurants and a large supermarket that contained a butcher, deli and an amazing fresh fruit and veg selection. You will not want for anything.

Andy was amazing. He personally picked us up and took us back to the airport. Such a nice attentive guy. He is always on hand should you need him and takes great pride in what he does. Nothing is too much.

The apartment has everything you will need for a self catering holiday including wifi which was great for our teenager daughter.

I would not hesitate to reccomend this or any of Andy's apartments. You will not be dissapointed.
