Customer Reviews

Great house. Location is perfect and the host is very friendly. Perfect for a bigger group. Strongly recommend.Ovidiu
Massive villa within walking distance of the beach Great location Very clean well maintained. Great facilities including underground garage. Nice pool. Outside area slightly smaller than expected and over looked by the adjacent villa. Great BBQ and out door dining area Overall a great villa lots of space could easily accommodate 2 families. I would stay there again and would recommend it. Vicky
We stayed here with 6 adults and 2 under 5’s. We loved the house. It is super spacious and gave everybody enough room to breath and not get on top of one another. The rooms are all big and the beds are comfortable enough. The lack of lighting on the terrace was a bit unusual but it didn’t stop us enjoying the warm evenings with a glass of wine. The pool is a good size and was well used. It being gated meant that we could rest assured that the kids could not get to it when we weren’t looking. Great peace of mind. The issue with the air conditioning was dealt with swiftly and we got a refund as soon as we got home. Communication with Susie was great and quite quick and the recommendations she gave us before our stay were a very nice touch. Overall the house is lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would highly recommend this property.Ev
We had a fabulous time! The villa has lots of space and fitted out with everything you will need! Susie was fantastic in communicating all the way through the booking and we would will def be returning.Paul Hart
EN: Very nice, we loved the pool during the hot weather. FR: Très bonne prestation. Nous avons adoré la piscine durant les fortes chaleurs Jean luc Befferat
Lovely villa in a lovely location. We were a family of 8 staying in this villa. 3 in their 70's, 3 teens and 2 in their 40's. Such a lovely Large villa. So very spacious, lots of bathrooms, no one was ever on top of each other. Very clean, towels, bedding, villa and pool cleaned in the week. So many extras, made the villa a 'home from home' Pool area lovely, patio a real sun trap. Lovely eating outside. Excellent location, nice and quiet. 5 min walk to the beach and into the town. Lovely beach and restaurants. Cannot fault this villa in any way. We would recommend and visit again. Darren H
DE: Hele fijne villa, in werkelijkheid is het mooier dan op de foto's! Fijn zwembad en op loopafstand van het centrum EN: Very nice villa, in reality it is more beautiful than in the pictures! Fine swimming pool and within walking distance of the town centre Anke A.
The location of this villa was perfect for us, a short walk to the quiet beach and about 15 minutes to the main part of the town. The villa is spacious and provides everything you could possibly need, the beds are comfortable and the size of the house allows everyone to have more than enough space. With air conditioning in every room, and all of the double rooms with its own balcony and access to its own bathroom, we were all able to enjoy our privacy when we wanted it. We had small children with us, so wanted pool safety and house security. We got both here, with a fenced off pool, steps into the water and locked entry gates controlled with security codes. It worked very well. The private terrace area is great, just off the kitchen and next to the pool, we enjoyed a family breakfast before heading of to do many of the acitivies and trips available locally. Loved the place and all plan to go back to stay again.Unknown
It's a very generous and well maintained House with a small garden with a sun terrace and swimming pool. The description of the object is exactly right. During our one-week stay, the towels were changed once in between.Unknown
The villa is ideally positioned, not too far from the city centre and not too far from the beach, for the quiet holiday under the sun of the Algarve.Anon.
