What makes this Apartment unique
We really liked this apartment as the location is just ideal if you don´t want to hire a car, you can walk to the beach in just a few minutes and there is a great selection of bars and restaurants nearby. It´s a lovely spacious apartment, set on two floors so there is more than enough space for 4 people.

Convenient, Clean, Wonderful!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Carvoeiro at this two-bedroom duplex. The apartment was very convenient, very clean, and very well supplied. The beds were very comfortable - and although we had some rain and wind, the bedrooms were never cold or damp. Emma and Mike were wonderful hosts, responding quickly to any of our inquiries. We appreciated their immediate service to restore our TV reception and to install new bulbs. We would recommend this apartment for its convenience to the town and restaurants - in hilly Carvoeiro there were no hills to climb! Thanks for a wonderful stay!
Fantastic Duplex Apartment in a beautiful Village
Have been coming to the Algarve for over thirty years and this apartment was one of the best we have stayed in.
It has everything you would need for a self catering holiday the beds are very comfortable and everything was spotless ,
It was great having the 3 places to sunbathe although it was January we had plenty of sun a bonus
The booking process was excellent and Emma and Mike met us at the apartment which was great .
There was a welcome pack in the fridge which we appreciated very much .
The toilet down the stairs was a bonus as I am on the wrong side of seventy it was brilliant not having to climb the stairs.
The village of Carvoeiro is a beautiful place to stay and this apartment is close to all the amenities .
The accommodation was exactly as described. The location was excellent - with numerous restaurants within a 5 minute walk. The apartment had everything we needed and was extremely clean and well-maintained.
Emma and Mike were amazing! It was such a nice gesture to meet us as we arrived and when we left. Thank you.
Emma gave us some recommendations of local restaurants, plus we discovered many more. We spent a day at Splash n Slide - we bought our tickets from a shop on "Restaurant Hill" and since there was 4 of us, it turned out cheaper to go by taxi (the taxi rank was a 3 minute walk away from the apartment). We also got a taxi to the local Supermarche to bulk buy our groceries, but the shops nearby were perfect for buying day to day items such as water and bread.
It was such a great location, we have booked again to visit in summer 2018.
Nice apartment and great location
This bright spacious apartment had all the facilities as memtioned and more on top.
There was small essential items in the fridge as a welcome pack.
The cupboards were well stocked with condiments on goingly by guests .
The apartment was very clean and bright.
Its location means no hills to climb to access ,the beach is 300 yards away and restaurants,bars and supermarkets are nearby.
Emma was very professional with booking arrangements and meeting us on arrival/departure.
I hope to visit again next year .

Comfortable, quiet and relaxing
We enjoyed a relaxing week here with our two children (11 & 13). The apartment was comfortable with air conditioning in the bedrooms and fans elsewhere. It had everything we needed. The location was perfect in that it was quiet, yet only a few minutes walk from the beach and local restaurants. The pool was really lovely too. We didn't have a hire care but took taxis to go to further afield beaches and the larger (cheaper) supermarket (all journeys we took were <10 euros). We spent most days on the local beach (snorkelling) and by the pool relaxing and having a daily ice cream from a great selection. Other highlights: boardwalk to the plunge pools (Algar Seco) & boat trip from the beach. Emma and Mike were really welcoming, had put a few goodies in the fridge and gave us some useful taxi / restaurant tips.
The apartment has everything you need including nice touches like cool box and parasol. Really handy to beach and restaurants.Mike and Emma couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you so much for your lovely review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We work with the owners to try and ensure the apartment has everything required for guests to have a relaxing holiday so we are very happy that you had everything you needed. We do hope to see you back in Carvoeiro in future. Many thanks Emma and Mike
