This place was a lot cheaper than a lot of other villas we'd looked at & I think we were a bit concerned before we went. But we needn't have been worried. This is a lovely, clean welcoming holiday home. The shared pool is only a few yards away and was huge. It was only ever used by a couple of families at a time so never felt too full or busy. There's a lovely garden with bbq facilities. The only thing is the house is spread across 3 floors so if you're travelling with someone with mobility issues or very young children its sonething to consider. There is also only air conditioning in the 2 rooms at the top of the house, but fans are provided in the other 2 rooms. There's a supermarket and couple of bars and restaurants within walking distance. But we'd hired a car and was glad we had as the beach was too far to walk and meant we could explore a few more restaurants. Singhs Indian was particularly good (better than back home, we went twice!). Overall would recommend visiting, lovely place.
Good Luck finding this place, even our sat nav couldn't find it
I booked this Villa as it stated it was in Guia, a place I love. It isn't and its a drive away from the town, not walking. The villa is a nice size but does need to have a few things done, Barbi, not good. 1 Bowl, with a family of 7 this wasn't good. Towels, only 1 small hand towel until we asked for more, as the cupboard with the towels, iron and iron board was locked., and also No Sunbeds when we arrived on Monday 17th July, we again said something and on Friday we had 4 Delivered.
On the details it states there is Air Con in the Main Bedroom, there isn't. The Agent really needs to change the details as this is false advertising, along with saying the Villa is in Guia. The Air con unit in the top bedroom was broke, I hope that the Landlord has this fixed asap for the other people staying here as it is getting hotter by the day, and the 2 top bedrooms are in the loft so very hot. Overall its a nice place, but as there are so many places to stay I feel the agent/landlord needs to spend some money to get this villa back to a good standard if they want to carry on charging top money for it. The good points, nice size, walking distance to supermarkets and some lovely restaurants.
My first worry was when the transfer driver met us he said the address didn't exist, after getting past that hurdle I arrived at a decent 4 bed four bathroom town house that sleeps up to 12, which we couldnt gain entry to after 3 hrs of sitting outside this apartment baring in mind I had 4 children under the age of 7, the caretaker and mates done there best to get us inside but the lock was knackered, so something else was sorted which we couldn't gain entry to again we eventually got in to somewhere for the night after midnight with 4 hungry miserable children, next day we was able to enter our premises we paid for, the reprensitive Tina Fielding was very unapologetic neither compassionate, not one phone call to see if we was in ok or whether our holiday apartment was to satisfaction nothing you'd think that would be the least after the awful start to the holiday. After being informed I would be compensated for my first night she and her partner was very rude, I booked an apartment that sleeps up to 12 I had 9 in my party, some how this seemed to be a problem for her and instead of focusing on the problem they chose to focus on me having 9 in my party, I don't remember ever seeing section asking how many people travelling and if I did miss it, I book an apartment that had more than enough space to fit everybody, I'm not the most computer savvy so maybe there was a section. Nevertheless the apartment had more than enough space, for some reason she thought I'd rent a town house that sleeps upto 12 for a couple , if there a was a problem she should of informed me when I booked the transfer because asked for all the personnel coming, even if it was more money or whatever they could of just said instead seemed to accuse me or booking an apartment knowing I'm bringing more people than they thought which I don't see had any relevants because as I said the apartment slept up to 12 that's why I booked it in the first place. Lovely apartment except BBQ was daralic and no iron either. Very cosy you immediately felt at home there very nice community too.
Perfect location and centrally located in the Albufeira area. Close by the beaches, shopping area, and clubs but far away from the crowds and noise to truly relax. The housing complex is secure to include a parking garage.
The villa was so ideal as a beautiful base to go and explore the Algarve. A lovely relaxing garden and bbq area and the swimming pool was very clean, spacious and ideal for children of all ages. There was also excellent support every step of the way with a special mention to Tina and not to mention Kevin who were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for you and always there for any questions.
Very impressed and lovely neighbours with excellent Parking available.
The villa had all the immenties and very well kept.
Thanks guys for an excellent holiday base,
Look forward to staying again,
With best regards,
Matt and family.
