Perfect apartment with lovely views

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, modern and newly furnished apartment with a large living room that gives it a wonderful open feeling. There is Wi-Fi upon request (essential) and a decent TV with a whole host of European channels - there are also some English entertainment channels. The beds in the two bedrooms were firm but comfortable giving great support without feeling like you're sleeping on a board! There was adequate space for our clothes in the built in cupboards with plenty of clothes hangers. The two bedrooms and bathroom with shower were clean and have a quality finish - a nice touch is that, as well as towel rails being provided, there are two large hooks behind each door to hang your towel or bathrobe. The kitchen is well stocked with all the appliances, crockery and utensils that are required for a holiday. There is also a coffee plunger which was very handy for a morning coffee, especially to have with our pastel de natas from the local bakery! A kettle and toaster were some other great added extras. However we didn't have to use many other of the appliances such as the oven, since the restaurants along the promenade are so good and great value for money! . The condominium's swimming pools are just perfect. The apartment is at the further end of the complex away from the swimming pool so one is not subjected to the noise from the pool - this allowed us to have a relaxing time on the terraces whilst reading the paper and drinking our coffee! The best bit about the apartment is the upper roof terrace which has magnificent views over the Formosa River and sea. There is a small table and two chairs so we would spend many a late afternoon having a sun downer whilst admiring the view. There are sun loungers which allows for private sunbathing since the terrace is not overlooked. A few minutes away from the apartment is the main promenade in Cabanas. This boardwalk stretches from one side of Cabanas to the other and is a pleasant walk alongside the Formosa River. On the opposite side of the road are a great variety of bars, restaurants, a bakery (for the pastel de nata) and cash machines. We ate at a different restaurant each evening and enjoyed quality food at very reasonable prices. A favourite of ours was the Sabores da Ria - we loved the fish. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in Cabanas and simply loved the apartment.

Perfect Holiday Apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The holiday exceeded all of our expectations - and that is a tall order with two very exacting teenagers in tow! The property had magnificent views - all around terracing on two levels with plenty of outdoor seating / dining and lounging equipment. The lounge was well equipped with CD player TV. The property tastefully decorated and equipped to exceedingly high standards - everything was catered for, including outdoor BBQ. The property itself was down a quiet side street with a restaurant across the road and a bakery a couple of doors away - everything within very easy and simple walking distance. A fantastic choice of cafes and bars and restaurants to suit all - and best of all Cabanas remains relatively untainted by commercialism. The boat taxi to the beach added to the uniqueness of the place What can i say - the holiday was marvelous - even the Teenagers have voted to go back !! Thank you Mark for letting out your wonderful holiday home - exceptional !

Great Apartment in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay the apartment was spotlessly clean and well furnished, the outside terraces had the sun all day dependent on which one was used. In easy walking distance of the front on which the majority of restaurants are located and just around the corner from the Happy Sailor restaurant and Bar well worth a visit.

We will definitely be returning

Comfortable, sophisticated, a great holiday apt

  • 5 of 5

We had a fab week here. Very spacious and the double bedroom and twin bedroom gave a luxury hotel feel for half the price. We ate out mostly but there was a lovely kitchen and dining room and also a great outdoor barbecue and dinning area. Cabanas is lovely, the village beach is huge and very clean. Eating out was cheap and the fish was always good quality and value . We found it easy to get around and walked to most places in the daytime and at night. Overall we had an amazing stay here and would highly recommend this apartment.

A great weeks holiday - will be back next year.

  • 5 of 5

2 bed apartment , went with a few friends for a weeks holiday. the apartment was easy to find , parking right outside. It is nice and quiet at night with the hustle and bustle of the bars and restaurants just a short 5 mins away on the prom. Plenty of choice for food. The apartemnt owner met us at agreed time and showed us around and took time explaining how everything worked. 2 huge roof terraces give excellent privacy and we enjoyed many hours sitting out there, with sea views. Also a substantial BBQ on roof terrace. The pool was quiet and very clean, for the time of year it was surprisingly warm! Beds were very comfortable and the whole apartment very clean, modern and well decorated. The owner was very friendly, helpful and approachable and left us his mobile for any problems - there were none ! He suggested a few places to check out - Manta Rota beach was great and definitely worth a visit. Umpteen golf courses in the area as well. Steak on the stone in the Jolly Sailor is a must. Best part was the ample roof terrace. This is my 2nd visit and will certainly return.

Cabanas is a small picturesque holiday resort set in the Ria Formosa nature reserve, an area of outstanding beauty protected by sandy white barrier islands and natural dunes. The long golden beach is one of the best beaches in the Algarve. Cabanas has all the amenities and for example an excellent choice of eating out. There are some great restaurants, cafes and bars that run along the pretty promenade with beautiful sea views. Cabanas is perfectly situated to visit areas of interest in the Algarve such as the historical town of Tavira with its Roman bridge. You are also only a short drive to Spain where you can take the opportunity to visit whilst on holiday.
