The apartment was a great place to stay with endless beautiful beaches just a couple of minutes walk, and shopping, restaurants, and markets all within a few minutes walk.
The apartment itself is bright, clean, spacious, and equipped with plenty of dishes, utensils, and kitchen appliances. It also has cable TV in the bedrooms and the living room. There is a washing machine, air conditioning/heating units, an outdoor bbq on the patio, a playpen/crib for little kids, and beach toys and bags.
The location and the comfort and amenities of the apartment make it the perfect spot to stay in the Algarve. It is minutes walk from Quarteira, a town with Portuguese restaurants, shops, cafés, and markets, and minutes walk from Vilamoura, a more touristy area with a gorgeous marina and shops. It is also a short drive from the cute market town of Loulé, and the Algarve capital, Faro, and many other sights. We would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a mix of a relaxing beach vacation and Portuguese culture.
As the person (mother) who booked the rental I would also like to add my comments:
The owner, Paul was a pleasure to deal with. He is highly organized, efficient, and helpful. Every e-mail was promptly answered and his information was thorough. According to my daughter everything was perfect, and even better than advertised.
