“Best in the West”
Reviewed 6 May 2015 for a stay in March 2015

person found this review helpful

Our second year running at what has become our favourite property yet in 20+ years of renting in the Algarve. The spacious interior offers charm and a cosy homeliness plus all the facilities we need including wifi. With its large area of garden containing many varieties of shrubs and diverse fruit trees, there is always something new to see and if you like your own space you can easily find it here or on the balcony, glass in hand watching the setting sun, poolside, or in one of the many other sun-kissed nooks and crannies round the property. The location is ideal for proximity to wonderful beaches, the historic town of Lagos, Luz, golf courses and a plethora of restaurants to suit every taste and pocket. Being close to the road there is minimal but unobtrusive traffic noise. After one day in holiday mode it just becomes a background hum and indoors no noise at all. Our stays have been for a month and three weeks in this lovely house, so noise did not preclude our return, nor hopefully will it in the future, d.v. Should you need her the ever helpful managing agent, Maria Jose, is only a phone call away to offer advice and assistance. Our dealings with Molly, the owner have been nothing but professional, cheery, friendly and always helpful. Thanks Molly for allowing us to spend special time at Casa Mimosa.

“Fab Villa”
Reviewed 4 February 2015 for a stay in July 2014

Have spent many months debating whether to write this review, the villa is fantastic, pool and pool area fantastic, lagos is stunning, Molly is brilliant & very helpful as was Maria
Only thing is that you can clearly hear the very busy main road that runs past the villa.
We did have a great holiday thou and would definitely recommend the villa if the road noise did not bother you

I am glad you did write the review Chris as it does help other guests make up their mind. I will admit you can hear the trafic on the road if you sit out on the Balcony upstairs ( I love to sit out and watch the world go by with a glass of vino in the evening) but if you are inside the Villa because of the double glazing you do not hear the trafic and by the pool is very peaceful so it is only if you are out on the balcony upstairs that it can be heard. Im so glad you enjoyed your holiday and hope to see you again

“Excellent Villa”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A fantastic villa which was perfect for our group of three couples. Booking was easy and Molly the owner was very helpful and flexible. The Pool guy, the cleaners and Maria, the person who greeted us and showed us around were all very good and the towns of Lagos and Luz were wonderful.
I would definitely recommend both the resort and this villa.

“Fantastic villa for a family holiday”
Reviewed 8 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

An excellent villa which was perfect for our group of three couples, (us plus our two sons and their girlfriends.) Booking was easy and the owner was very helpful and flexible. The villa is big enough to give everyone space and the pool area is excellent, sunny all day and the pool is big enough to swim in properly and deep enough to dive into! Better than many communal pools, though some of the pool furniture could do with some attention. There is also a large brick barbie by the pool. The rooms are all roomy and nicely decorated, bedrooms on the ground floor and living area upstairs to take in the view. The villa is on a large plot with a lovely garden and so is nice and private with views of both Lagos and Luz from the curved balcony. Lagos is only a short drive, but it's too far to walk so a car is a must, though taxi's were reasonable and will pick you up from the villa ( there are numbers in the house ). The villa is quite close to the main road and whilst you can't see it you can hear it - it didn't bother us but it may be an issue for some. Lagos is a great town with fantastic beaches and would definitely recommend both the resort and this villa - excellent!
