My husband and I stayed at this apartment from the12th - 26th June 2014, we booked and paid through trip advisor, communication from the owners, Justa and Adelaide, was very prompt and professional, they dealt with all our queries about the apartment and also organised our taxi to collect and return us to the airport.
The apartment is in a great location, steps from the beach and pedestrian walkway and 2 min from shops, bars and good selection of restaurants.
There kitchen has everything you could need, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, big fridge/freezer, etc. The living area has two sofas, free wifi and a new modern tv with ZON cable, this gives some English speaking channels ( mainly BBC news,Nat geo and us soaps) also a DVD player, there are 2 balconies a small one to the side, which is great for drying clothes and a bigger one to the front with table and chairs looking out onto the beach.There are no problems with noise from bars etc, the apartment has double glazing and also excellent individual room air conditioning, quarteira is a laid back resort so doubt noise would ever be problem.
The apartment has been refurbished so fittings are new, kitchen & bathrooms, lovely jacuzzi bath, big powerful shower, all spotlessly clean.
Although we used the apartment as a couple there is plenty of space for 6 adults without it feeling crowded. The apartment building can only be entered via a key, there are 12 apartments most of which appeared to be occupied permanently by local people, so we had no concerns over security.
We would definitely stay here again!!!
