Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Susie, The villa was really lovely and the size was impressive. The outstanding feature is the 16m pool and was actually the main reason we booked that villa, albeit we knew the area well and knew it was close walking distance to beach as well.

We’ve been at villas before with electric gates, automatic awnings (close automatically if windy) and the full Sky package before, but these are fairly small areas of improvement.

Overall though the villa was very nice and the maid, gardener and pool cleaner were all very good at doing their job without being in the way.

Thanks for everything

Lovely villa but in need of maintenance.

  • 3 of 5

Although advertised as villa with heated pool & air con, these are not included in price shown.

Some maintenance required -

Some of the windows do not lock.

Microwave door broken.

One cupboard door in kitchen hanging off.

One of the sofa's has a broken leg and is barely useable, it did not hold any weight or movement so we had to wedge it against the wall and not use it after it collapsed when I sat on it and hurt my back! This was referred to in manual in the villa so is known about. In my opinion this is not acceptable & sofa should be repaired or replaced. What is it with the sofa throws too? They fall off when you sit on the sofa!

TV/satellite system is virtually useless for viewing.

Travel cot provided had a mattress that does not fit the cot properly and in my opinion is not safe.

Whilst the pool is fantastic, it is leaking ( as advised by a man who was one of 4 workmen that appeared unannounced at the pool whilst we were relaxing), and the water level lowered during the time we were there.

Front & kitchen door to villa very stiff and difficult to open. Again this is referred to in the manual with instructions how to open & close the doors. In my opinion they should be attended to do that they open & close properly.

The beach & town are quite a long walk from villa and uphill on return.

Owner's Response: 1. The listing clearly states air conditioning and pool heat are extras. 2. Only one window lock is faulty. A wood block is in the runner to prevent it being opened from outside. There are metal shutters so security is not compromised. 3. The microwave lever snapped but it does not affect the use of the microwave in any way. 4. The kitchen door hinge came a bit loose so the maid tightened it, at no point was it "hanging off". 5. We experienced a problem the previous week with the sofa, which was why we left the warning note. However, there are 3 sofas so plenty of space to sit on the other two. New sofas are on order. There are throws on sofas to protect them from sun oil. They are tied on securely so if they come untied, they can simply be tied on again. 6. The TV system is fine although a bit complicated and occasionally needs to be unplugged to reboot. If you were having difficulties you could have contacted us and we would have explained how to operate it. 7. The travel cot comes with mattress provided which fits the cot and is perfectly safe. This cot has been in use for a couple of years and no other guests have complained. 8. A leak was identified in the pool during your stay. The water level was not "lowered", it leaked out and had to be resolved quickly to prevent further drainage. It only dropped 3 cm below normal level. 2 technicians came to inspect and were there for a matter of minutes. 9. We have not received complaints about the front or kitchen doors, so we cannot understand the nature of this complaint. The instructions are to prevent anyone using them incorrectly because this could damage them. These instructions are intended as a precaution only. 10. The distance to the beach and town are clearly stated on the villa listing. If you stay in Carvoeiro, you have to go up one of the hills to get out of the town centre which is in a valley. In summary, the villa is not brand new and sometimes things can go wrong or break. We endeavour to resolve any problems quickly, with as little inconvenience as possible to guests. We ask guests to contact us while in resort if they have issues so that we can attempt to resolve them and would have done so if you had contacted us. I will finalise by mentioning that three of this year's guests have already booked to return to the villa next year and they will enjoy the benefit of 3 new bathrooms, a newly fitted kitchen and new sofas, among other things before the start of next Summer season.

Great holiday . Great villa

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this lovely villa with 7 friends to celebrate my 50 th birthday. We had a fantastic holiday , the villa was so well equipped with everything we could possibly need for self catering , a rural setting so didn't have to worry about laughing too loud !! It's worth paying for the pool to be heated as did a lot of evening swimming , you do need taxi to get to town as was a long walk and dark . But you can walk to beach but it's still

Away and a hill which killed us in the heat ! My birthday just so happened to land on the big black and white festival which was amazing and went on till the early hours . I would definitely stay here again was not crowded at all with 8 of us as very spacious and a massive pool ! Would hire a car though next time . Susie and rosa were lovely and on hand for any questions. All In all a great holiday location and lovely villa

Absolutely perfect, wouldn't hesitate to book again

  • 5 of 5

We were a little apprehensive about booking a villa separately, but as we were taking 5 teenage children a large pool and a bit privacy was top of our list, we just hoped the villa was as described.

It turned out to be perfect for us and exactly as described. It’s a great size villa, well laid out and has everything you could want. The pool is massive and very deep....around 3m. We opted for the pool heating and it was spot on, it really took the edge off the water, as a result we used it all day long. The great thing for the kids was the ability to use the pool first thing in the morning and even late at night, we’re used to pools opening and closing at certain times so this was amazing for us. Swimming at night in a heated pool with the stars over your head was brilliant!

All the bedrooms are twins and a good size, two have ensuite, there’s a large bathroom and separate toilet, decent dining areas (inside and out) and a well equipped kitchen. There’s plenty of space to catch up on a tan if that’s your thing with a great roof terrace that gets sun all day long. We didn’t pay for air-conditioning so it was quite hot in the villa but fortunately there’s plenty of fans to move some of the hot air about.

The villa is in a lovely quiet area but even with five teenagers we didn’t feel like we were making too much noise or being a nuisance, there’s quite a lot of space between villas which I think helps.

If I had to pick a downside it would be the distance you need to walk to the local shops…….you pay the price for peace and quiet. We didn’t get a hire car as on google maps everything you need is within 15-30 min walk. We thought it would be straightforward but it’s a hilly place so when you’re going up/down hills in 30+ degree heat, we’ll, it was tiring to say the least. We ended up getting a taxi to pick us up from the villa to take us to the centre of town, even a minibus was only 8 Euro’s so not too expensive. Fortunately, everything we needed to know was in the welcome book, taxi number, shop locations, everything.

We are already talking about our next trip out, which is very rare for us. We never seem to go back to places but we loved it here. If you’re considering this villa or have booked it I would recommend you pay for pool heating, get the welcome pack so you have food & beer when you arrive, pay for air-conditioning and consider getting a hire car, although it’s not essential if you’re willing to get taxi’s and pay for the transfers.

Séjour inoubliable, villa spacieuse.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour. La villa est tout simplement superbe et bien équipée. La TRES grands piscine et la villa sont bien entretenues par un personnel discret et efficace. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié le service du ménage effectué plusieurs fois durant notre séjour, ce qui nous laisse tout le loisir de profiter pleinement de nos vacances. Quelques soucis avant notre arrivée car nous avions oublié de confirmer notre réservation mais Susie a été formidable et tout est rentré dans l'ordre. Organisation impeccable. Dommage qu'elle ne propose pas de location dans d'autres pays. Excellent restaurant à proximité ( quelques minutes à pied : Vale do Milho) avec un propriétaire charmant!).

Villa à réserver les yeux fermés!

Good size property but a little tired

  • 3 of 5

It would have been nice to have someone there on arrival to take us through the little foibles of the key fob and television.

The entrance instructions were good but knowing our arrival time, a rep could have been there

The villa itself is looking a bit tired. I can understand trying to reduce wear on the settees, but the covers were not comfortable

The welcome pack was good but maybe an idea would be to give a list of say 2 dozen items the client can chose a certain number from for the price and reduce waste. This could include large bottles of water

The Vale do Milho restaurant was excellent with Fernando giving wonderful service

The Vale do Milho golf, we thought was expensive unless you went for their offers. Also the opening times for food did not correspond to what was advertised which led to a disappointment and no return

It is a villa that would be best for a family or group using as a base to go out in cars to explore the countryside

Casa jacaranda 5-star villa, wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Casa Jacaranda is a 5 - star villa that was everything we expected.... and more! Spacious and clean, large rooms, fully-equipped kitchen, well laid out. The living room is comfortable with ample seating and there is a lovely large barbecue area with outside seating where we enjoyed many happy evenings. The pool is absolutely huge and the pool heating meant we were able to swim in November. Prior to our arrival we were provided with directions to the villa which made it simple to find and a welcome pack was waiting for us so we could eat lunch as soon as we arrived. A staff member soon arrived to greet us and ensure we had everything we needed and gave us lots of local information. Susie also provided us with a list of places to explore and wonderful local restaurants. I would thoroughly recommend Susie and her team at Carvoeiro Villa Holidays for whom nothing was too much trouble, they really made our holiday special.
