September 2022 We had a wonderful holiday together with our friends. The villa is very suitable for a family holiday. It was very clean, the furnishings are functional. The pool was perfect for the kids. Thanks a lot Susie for your support and cooperation before/during our stay. We had a great time and we‘ve enjoyed our stay at the Villa.
July 2022 - Stunning home in a great location. This villa was the perfect place for our family holiday. It was ideal travelling with different generations and everyone (from baby to OAP had a wonderful time). The villa is equipped to an incredibly high standard. Susie was an exceptional host and went above and beyond to make our stay seamless. Couldn’t recommend this place more or give it any higher praise
May 2022 The villa is wonderful for a family of eight or for four couples; there are three bedrooms on the ground floor which is ideal for older people who struggle with stairs! The photos don't really do it justice; the kitchen, lounge area and dining area are all open plan and it's a lovely bright space. The pool is great and we had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxed time.
May 2022 It was really mega beautiful. The villa was a dream. We enjoyed it very much. The location was perfect. Only 5 min to the sea. I thank you very much ???We will be back again.
June 2022 Such a great week. Perfect Villa for a family stay. Kitchen so well kitted out and it was spotless. Would definitely return!
MAY 2022. Susie was a very good host. Communication was friendly, clear and fast. The apartment is superclean and very stylish. It had everything you need. A great swimming pool HEATED!! That was perfect. The kids played in it all day! We stayed with our two young children (6 and 9). It was perfect for our family and very close to the beach (10 min drive). We would highly recommend the Villa and would love to come back!
JAN 2022. We had a great stay at the villa. It was very clean. We were the first ones to use the pool heating which was wonderful!
OCT 2021. What a fantastic week myself and my friends had at the villa. It truly is a beautiful villa and very well equipped! The pool is a fabulous size and sunshine all day long which is just great. A short walk is a small village and a very cheap taxi ride into the main town. Even though we had a car we could have survived with the local taxis. There was nothing at all we could have had more to make this such a great holiday! We have all spoken about returning another time which says it all! Thanks Susie , you have were also on first hand when we were there and answered all our questions before arrival. Truly first class :)
JULY 2021. Great family villa within a 15min walk to a small supermarket, restaurant & bar. The swimming pool area & extended garden is perfect for children to swim / run around. There is a BBQ although you have to get creative with the setup not difficult if your used to BBQing. Air conditioning is in the master bedroom upstairs ONLY however there are portable fans in all the bedrooms. The villa itself is clean, modern and has everything you would need for an enjoyable stay.
Modern, super clean, top! We would rent it again
Wonderful villa for a family holiday. Great facilities, amazing views, great space. Susie, we really enjoyed our holiday at the villa and appreciated all you arranged for us. The space for us all was amazing, the kitchen great for everyone, bedrooms and bathrooms worked well for all. Thank you.
Beautiful house on a perfect location, near the coast. Our holiday and the house were perfect and also your service and the location of the house. We had a beautiful staying! We will certainly come back to Portugal.
Very clean, well presented and comfortable villa. Perfect for our holiday. The house is central to both Benagil and carvieuera. A 10 minute walk to several restaurants, one was particularly good with a swing in the garden to occupy the smaller generation. Either a 30 minute walk, or a few minutes drive from Benagil, it's caves, beach and lovely restaurants. I'd recommend a car to explore further afield and to get to the larger supermarkets. There's nothing better than picking a fresh pomegranate to dress a salad, then enjoy an evening meal next to the pool.
The house, the pool and the fireplace were very enjoyable and we have had a great Holiday with two families. The beaches in the area are beautiful and the view is great!
We liked to be here. Suzie is very caring and sincere host. Everything was just great! Photos and description of the property were accurate and correspond with what we found. Arrival instructions precise, although the first arrival is quite difficult.
Nice villa just outside Carvoeiro We arrived this nice villa just outside Carvoeiro. Thanx to Susie that organised everything well. This white villa is just ten minutes outside Carvoeiro. Close to Rocka Mar. Good parking for several cars. We had two. Nice pool area. The beds are a bit hard and the diningtable is small to seven people. This can easily be fixed. Very happy about this place. Close to beaches and other activities. Many golf courses close by.
We returned several weeks ago from Portugal, we had an excellent stay. I send this email to thank you for your work so that our holidays went well. The House was beautiful and we have been very pleased with our stay. Carvoeiro is a very pretty village.
Really superb! the villa is fantastic. Everything was perfect. the booking, the Organization for the arrival... And the House is a small paradise. Congrats Susie. This villa is a privileged place for a pleasant stay. The isolated, but close to all amenities, location allows a welcome peacefulness for a stay in the Algarve. Comfort inside and outside is without comment. What to say when everything is perfect? Everything was provided for our arrival, the pool maintenance and even the cleaning lady! The rooms, in number, the bathrooms for each room (or almost), cooking well designed the dining living room (unused due to the weather) spacious... and the pool terrace overlooking the sea, where we stayed for the whole week. indescribable. Carvoeiro is really a very pleasant village and the month of may enables beautiful days without the disadvantages of the midsummer. an address to do not miss it. We will return!
We wanted an out of season private villa with a pool and found Casa Alexandra.45 min drive from the airport with easy to find directions. Villa is off the beaten track down an unmade road. First impressions from the outside are that it is a little tired. But once we went inside, we were very happy. 4 great sized bedrooms, huge lounge and dining room, spacious and VERY well equipped kitchen. Free WIFI (I was told you had to pay before I went). Plenty of outside space. Immaculately clean. There was just two of us, so we picked our room and shut the rest off. Pool is great and was cleaned by a chap on day 3. Cleaner also came by on day 3. Overall. A great villa with good amenities. Car recommended. Closest shop and restaurant in walking distance though.
Had a superb holiday with self, wife, 2 children and 1 granddaughter at this lovely spacious villa in june for our family. Weather fabulous. Lovely pool which we used daily and useful BBQ. In fact we had all our meals outside on the shaded terrace. Perfect! We will be going back. Well equipped villa and handy for the local minimarket, although we drove mostly to the Intermarche, 10 minutes away. We all love peace and quiet and this location hit the spot 100%. Lovely beach nearby with easy parking. Regular villa cleaning done thoroughly, and also the pool, which was just as it should be and great temperature as the ambient was 27-32 degrees during our visit, so a cool dip was very welcome. Roll on next year, if I can wait that long ! Many thanks to Susie who came to make sure everything was OK. Thanks for the directions without which we would still be driving about!
We arrived in Faro very late on the Monday night, Susie (the agent) provided a mobile number to contact just in case, but the great instructions she provided meant that we arrived with the minimal of fuss. The location was great, not too near the neighbours, yet close enough to get to the local town and stunning nearby beaches. The villa was just as described on the website, well equipped and very comfortable. We used the lovely deep pool every day- as we went in Spring it was a little chilly, but that didn't stop the children enjoying it. The maid, Magdalena came to clean twice in a week and she was lovely. All in all brilliant relaxing week in a beautuful location, we would definitely go back.
We really liked the Villa and enjoyed our holidays there. We will be in contact in the future. Thank you for your time.
Hi Susie, we're back in sunny Bournemouth and would like to thank you for your part in hiring us the villa. We both loved it, and intend to come back again, and of course we will contact you when we do.
FIVE STARS! 6 friends (2 couples & 2 singles) needed a quiet getaway for a week and this was perfect. Everything was as described on the website, except the big Palm tree has gone! We found it on Google-Earth and realised that there were few near neighbours yet we would be near the coast...perfect for us. We didn't find any beaches within walking distance but it was so hot that we would have used the car with Air-con anyway. Parking anywhere was never a problem and the 'Intermarche' Supermarket was also a short-drive away. We don't really like towns or noisy bars, so we spent most of the time going to lovely beaches, cooking on the BBQ at the villa and playing silly games in the pool. We ate every meal outside. We could not fault the accommodation except might feel you needed aircon to sleep better in the heat - but then this villa is a lot cheaper than others with more facilities.
Lovely and very big house in nice and quiet neighborhood. Due to the time of year it gets cold indoor at night but we got along by use of the fireplace. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking as well as dishwasher, washing machine, microwave etc. Unfortunately we could not use the lovely pool due to the temperature. All in all a great stay at a very reasonable price.
