Thoroughly enjoyed our break
We have stayed in Cabanas many times but this was our 1st time renting a property on the Quinta Velha complex as it is so popular. We stayed for 5 weeks and the images of the villa do not do it justice it was really amazing more like a 'home from home' than a holiday rental. Lots of personal touches even the sofa reclined!!
We did not use the upstairs (bathroom and 2 bedrooms) as we were only a couple so chose the downstairs twin bedroom with the adjacent bathroom. The beds were amazingly comfortable with lovely mattress toppers to ensure you had a wonderful nights sleep. The kitchen was very well equipped and it had the largest fridge/freezer we have ever come across and plenty of room throughout if the villa is used to full capacity ( sleeps 8 in total)
Karine who looks after the villa was great, always on hand to sort out any problems and she called several times when passing just to make sure we were ok and did not need anything. Our experience with Fernando through the booking process was also 1st class , highly efficient and professional.
The roof solarium has 2 sunbeds with mattresses with fabulous 360 degree view and we used them several times as an alternative to the communal pool or beach. Our only constructive suggestion would be the provision of some outdoor furniture on the large 1st floor balcony that caught the late afternoon and evening sun. As there were only two of us we used 2 chairs up there from the downstairs patio area table and chairs so it was not a problem for us.
All in all we had the most amazing holiday in the most wonderful villa in our favourite place Cabanas. Would we return , without a doubt even it is very difficult to book this villa as it is so popular!
This is great holiday villa, very well-equipped and furnished, ideally located and on a nice site.
We enjoyed this so much, we have booked again!
Spacious, well equipped villa in great location
We have recently stayed at this villa for 2 months and absolutely loved it. In the months leading up to our stay, we had plenty of contact with the owner and the arrival and handover process was carried very efficiently by Karine the manager who was helpful and friendly.
The villa is lovely, very well maintained and the most well equipped of anywhere we have previously stayed. It had every utensil etc you could need and the toaster worked great! The promenade, river and main part of Cabanas is a 10-15 minute walk away and was somewhere we enjoyed walking to daily. We visited over Winter so it was very quiet, which we preferred.
This villa is very well located for the restaurants and bars in Cabanas and also Tavira which is a short car ride away.
There are also lots of different, easy walks that we did daily from the villa which were lovely especially because of the large variety of birds that we spotted along the way.
I would easily recommend staying in this villa, we had a wonderful holiday. I have fallen in love with this part of Portugal and would stay here again.
Lovely Apartment, great pool, good communication with owner
Although the website says that only 2 of the 3 bedrooms have aircon, they all have aircon as well as the lounge area, which was a big plus.
Off road car parking outside house.
The individual building is situated in a complex of similar properties, with a communal pool. The house is on 3 levels, the very upper one being a small sun terrace, the 2nd has a large sun terrace which is accessed off the landing. Also on the 2nd floor there is a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, a large separate family bathroom with bath/shower. The ground floor has another twin bedroom and separate smaller bathroom with just a shower. This can be accessed from the lounge area (which is open plan with the dining and kitchen). A curtain or door off the lounge would be a great addition to solve the problem of being seen from the lounge as you go from bedroom to bathroom and visa versa.
The wardrobe space in each bedroom is very good and there are adequate towels (no tea towels though!) The house is well maintained and looks quite new, it's an advertisement for IKEA, complete with quite hard beds that need toppers!
Kitchen had most things you need, could have done with a small pan for boiling eggs, egg cups, some non-stick utensils and a corkscrew that worked! The toaster was abysmal, tiny toy affair that burnt more than it toasted and we had to request a kettle from the lady that looks after the place. Not sure how anyone made tea before us!
The lounge/dining room is spacious and airy. Off the lounge there are double doors that lead onto a good sized patio area with table and chairs for 6, so eating alfresco is comfortable.
Watching the bats zooming past at dusk is another treat!
There are fly-net screens on most of the windows but we had quite a few persistent ants in the kitchen!
Wonderful swimming pool with lots of loungers and sun umbrellas, well-kept lawn areas. There is a bar and restaurant in the complex.
The location is good, short walk down a well-lit road to the main sea-facing street.
If I was visiting this part of Portugal again, we would definitely stay in this 3 bed house.
cabanas is a quite place but the best place I,ve ever stopped.
