“A perfect stay at Quiet Waters”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Vitor and Claudio were exceptionally attentive hosts, greeting us on arrival and guiding us through their beautiful house and grounds. We also arrived early but they looked after our bags until everything was perfectly clean; meanwhile we took a stroll to one of the local restaurants. There are lovely places to eat nearby, our favourite was the delightful seafood restaurant on the shore in Fabrica. The beach is picturesque and not too busy (though you need to take shade unless you go there early in the morning or late in the afternoon - that was our favourite time to go! Sometimes we took the boat across but we walked there or back at low tide - this was a fun family adventure but others may prefer to follow the tide table to get boats both ways (very reasonably priced). Other days we relaxed at the apartment, by the beautiful nature pool and swam beside the frogs on the lily pads...
It is advisable to take a car to get to the supermarket and visit the local area but not entirely necessary as you may hire bikes to get to and from Manta Rota and taxis will take you to and from the train station or quaint little city of Tavira. We hired a car, reasonably priced, from Tavira just for a few days and relaxed on the other days, taking a chance to enjoy the apartment, gardens and gorgeous views. The house will probably have everything you need and is very spacious and luxiourious but if you do want advice on anything the owners are very helpful! We are a large family including a toddler and university student and two more children in-between but we all enjoyed this special place and dream about going back again...

“Wonderful and relaxing place to stay.”
Reviewed 10 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This is a fantastic apartment with private garden close to a lovely small traditional village. Great for relaxing with easy access to fantastic beaches but lively seaside towns within 10 minute drive. Vitor the owner couldn't be more helpful with directions and recommendations. Certainly hope to return.

“Peace and quiet”
Reviewed 21 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I guess peace and quiet summarizes our week in this wonderful apartment. It is perfect in every sense. The apartment is comfortable, has everything you need (we went with two children and made most of our meals at home) and is quite beautiful too. The best part is the terrace with the lawn in front... Wonderful for us to rest in the shade while the kids run up and down in the garden. The pool is wonderful. The water is warm and the kids really enjoyed watching the frogs.
Cacela is a really small typical village, but it's so charming and has good places to eat. It's at walking distance, so we would go for dinner or just for a walk. It was really pleasant. The access to the beach is also made from the village. We would cross by foot when the tide was low. The beach is one of the most beautiful, ones in the Algarve (if not in the country). It has some shallow waters which is great for children and it is really calm and not crowded at all.
I also have to mention Vitor. We could not have asked for a better host - Available, forthcoming, super-nice and thoughtful.
We could not recommend this apartment more and we will surely return.

“A good place for a relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 8 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Vitor is an excellent host. He is really communicative; he 'phoned us a few times before we left home to speak in person to us and was quickly in touch during the week by email while we where there to answer any questions we had.
Only five minutes walk away from Quiet Waters is Cacela Velha, which is a charming little village relatively untouched by time and has some nice restaurants and the local beach is very clean and on one occasion, we had it to ourselves.
If you want a quiet, relaxing break, Quiet Waters is for you. We will definitely return another time.

“Lives up to its name 'Quiet Waters'”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Truely a marvellous place. Apartment clean, uncluttered and comfortable. Having the covered patio was great for very warm days. Eco pool was fun not just for swimming but sitting at side watching all the frogs and dragon flies, stunning and so peaceful.
Vitor was there to meet us and gave us advice on the surrounding area. His advice on how and where to cross the lagoon to the beach was great. We probably would not have tried it otherwise. It's a must do thing.
With Cacela Velha just a walk away was a bonus. Going out for dinner you didn't need to drive, just out the gates and a 3 minutes walk away 2 restaurants, both great.
A place to chill out and relax, but nice and central to visit the sights of Eastern Algarve.
