Hi, we are Tracy & Paul Maxwell from Blundellsands near Liverpool, I (Paul) am the Managing Director of a local oil company and my wife runs the household and caters for our two kids who are still at home (cause they have it so good!). We love it when we can get out to Carvoeiro which is not as often as we would like.

Paul & Tracy Maxwell purchased this apartment in 2007

It's perfect, right location in a nice quiet spot yet only a couple of hundred metres from all the restaurants, bars and beach (not easy to get that combination). The apartment was built in the early nineties and is a quality build to a high standard, the layout is super with the private ensuite bedroom area and spacious lounge. Balcony is full width and not overlooked, it is near to the pool but not right overlooking it which is what we wanted, ideal for a peaceful drink, and the view is lovely. It ticked all the boxes for me, I knew it would be good for rentals because of this and in the years following been proved right, its been a great investment!

The one thing I would say that makes this apartment great for holidaymakers is the location, many apartments claim to be in Carvoeiro which these days covers a wide area and often this can mean in the general vicinity, but when guest arrive they find themselves one or two kilometres out of town, not such of problem except in peak periods when taxis are busy and car parking impossible. Our apartment is right there in the town centre, a five minute walk away from the square by the beach, yet is just far enough away from the main street to be quiet and peaceful at night.

FAB APARTMENT JUST AS DESCRIBED

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is ideal for those looking for a location far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the town but near enough to walk (5 mins and you're on the main street).

The apartment itself is perfect. Tastefully decorated, comfortable sofa & chairs (not like the usual uncomfortable sofas you tend to get), satellite TV for those that want to keep in touch with the British soaps, an iPOD docking station so that you can listen to your own music and a dishwasher which is an added bonus for those wanting to dine in the apartment. The lovely thing as well about this apartment is having the beach towels provided (8 in total).......... definitely a space and weight saver in your luggage. Having the washing machine was even better because you could have a clean beach towel every day if you wanted. Both bedrooms in the apartment are spacious with loads of storage space for those extra outfits you've brought instead of the beach towels. The master bedroom has a king sized bed for that extra comfort.

The balcony is really spacious and overlooks the gardens and path to the pool which is just to the left of the apartment so although you can't fully see it from the apartment you can get to it in half a minute. From the balcony you can also see the sea in the distance and catch the lovely sunsets on the horizon.

We were a party of 4 adults and never felt on top of each other because the apartment is so roomy and spacious.

The only downside I can think of is that there is no air conditioning (although fans can be hired) so those going in high season may get a little hot on those humid nights. We went mid September and it was fine.

Carvoeiro itself is a lovely little resort with a gorgeous little sandy cove off the main square. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to suit all tases and a number of little shops and boutiques to browse.

If we return to Carvoeiro again, we would certainly try to book this apartment again.

PERFECT APARTMENT, EXACTLY AS ADVERTISED

  • 4 of 5
We had a very comfortable time here in spite of 4 days of rain and cold temperatures. The wood burner was much in use and so we were kept warm. The apartment was beautifully furnished and all requirements met,apart from a few small saucepans which would have been useful! Parking was right outside the steps to the apartment, and for active people a pleasant walk down into the town, so no need to take the car. It would be a haul up the hill with shopping!
We had a lovely time and would hope to return another year, and would certainly recommend to friends. Thank you Paul & Debbie.

CARVOEIRO 2012

  • 5 of 5
It was fabulous to be back in Carvoeiro after not being here for two years. Although it is our 4th time here now, the place still appeals to us as much as ever. It was lovely to be back in the apartment again, it felt like home as soon as we stepped in the front door, it has everything you could wish for and all the amenities on your doorstep. We'll be back!

SUMMER 2011

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four stayed at this apartment in August 2011 and we had a fabulous time, the apartment was clean and spacious and nicely laid out and well equipped, the reception staff were lovely and ever so helpful. It was about 3 mins walk to the main restaurants and shops and about 5 mins to the great sandy beach. I was told before that there was a world of difference with apartments that are fully managed on site and those that are not, I have experienced both and would always choose this type if you just want to relax in a hassle free environment. Well worth a visit!

GREAT APARTMENT GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The apartment and location was fabulous! Spotlessly clean and tidy, maid in each day making beds etc, heaven for us unpaid housekeepers! Great staff in reception who were very friendly and helpful. Apartment was big and had everything you need, even tennis raquets! The main bedroom was great actually a small suite on its own off the hallway with its own little entrance hall and en-suite. The terrace was very pleasant, not overlooked and with nice views. Outside was a pool area which had plenty of sunbeds and was lovely and clean.
One of the best things was the location, we have stayed in carvoeiro before and thought we would be very near the centre only to be dissapointed at the walk, this apartment was very close to the centre an easy 5 min walk, but just far enough away from the main street to be nice and quiet at night. Carvoeiro has some of the best restaurants in the algarve too many to name and the fishermans beach set in the cove in the town centre is to behold. That makes carvoeiro such a lovely little place because it is so compact but has it all, beach, lovely town and your accomodation all right there close together. Perfect! Can't wait til we come back.

Car: not necessary

For those that know Carvoeiro it is a hidden gem on the Algarve and remains as yet undiscovered and has not been spoiled by large over development, the village is in a lovely setting centred around the square right by Carvoeiro beach which is nestled in a lovely cove where there are many very good cafes & restaurants. Monte Dourado resort enjoys a privileged hill-top position above Carvoeiro beach and within a short walk of the beach and the centre of the village, there are tennis courts on site and a nice 9 hole par 3 golf course (Vale de Milho) just up the road or a more challenging 18 holes each at Pinta & Gramacho 10 minutes away, Carvoeiro is set on a really beautiful stretch of coast with cliff tops mingled with super sandy cove beaches. Slide & Spash water park is 5 minutes away in Lagoa and Zoomarine theme park is within 20 mins.

In summer especially it is impossible to park in the town this is why we think the location of this apartment is fabulous, no need for a taxi.
