We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at this apartment. The apartment had everything- a home from home. Aoartment had satellite tv, films on hard drive, current books, parasols, sunbeds etc etc. Also very convenient to the centre, beaches, supermarkets and restaurants. Roof top swimming pool is the jewel in the crown! Great stay

“A great apartment!”
Reviewed 29 June 2013 for a stay in October 2011

person found this review helpful

The apartment is situated a short walk away from the town and beach. We found the apartment clean and was very well equipped with everything we needed for our holiday. As we travelled at the end of October the weather wasn't always that great but the apartment had loads of films and games to keep our children amused on the rainy days.
The beach is golden sand and the sea very clear, we had an excellent stay and would go back again.

“What a great Apartment!!”

From the first contact to the final hand over of keys back to owner, I can attest to the following:
- Jon was Professional, informative, helpful, clear on pricing (no hidden costs)
- Kept contact via email on a "as you go" basis, every step of the booking & stay
- Apartment is in a modern security building, swimming pool on the roof & an allocated car spot in the lockup garage
- Owr contact person on arrival was super helpful / friendly, articulate and professional
- Apartment presented very well, with all mod cons & finishes, and extra owner touches for that special stay ie: Wine/beer/welcome fruit platter, Beach chairs/games, wood/coal for the outdoor BBQ, even some cleaning/washing products already available.
- Short 10mnt walk to beach/local shops/strip
We had a wonderful stay and I strongly recommend you to select this apartment for your Algarve trip... you will not be disappointed !

“Nice & convenient”
Reviewed 26 June 2013 for a stay in July 2011

The apartment is nice and clean and very close to all ammenities and the beach. We used the apartment as a base for travelling the Algarve to look for a villa to buy. Furniture in the lounge could be a bit more comfortable.

“Spacious, luxurious, comfortable flat”
Reviewed 22 June 2013 for a stay in January 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed in this apartment for three months from January until April 2013. We actually chose it the previous year, whilst we were in Portugal, from many that were available.
This flat has large airy sunny rooms. The lounge faces west so gets the benefit of the afternoon and evening sun, which settles nicely on the balcony.
I have never before enjoyed such a well equipped flat. Everything you could possibly need was provided - right down to the citrus press! The beds were large and comfortable, with loads of bedding, there was constant piping hot water with masses of towels, and there was an endless supply of DVDs together with Sky TV.
The flat is in a good position, being perhaps 5 minutes stroll from the sand, the promenade, the shops, and some bars and restaurants, and within walking distance of a decent supermarket.
Jon, the owner was very helpful and forgiving. (I broke his teapot!) and the English speaking agent was more than willing to pop round and sort out any problems.
I would recommend this flat to anybody and will almost certainly go back agian
