About Eileen Tipper

Myself Brian Middler together with partner Jo, sister Dawn and her husband Kenny are the proud new owners of the newly named Casa Freedom. We live in Aberdeenshire in Scotland where there is not a lot of sun so we thought we should get our own place in the sun. Our Property Manager Eileen takes our bookings and looks after our apartment and clients with complete efficiency. Eileen can also arrange your transfers or car hire if required (not essential). She will also call to see you on your first day to ensure all is to your satisfaction.

Eileen Tipper purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Eileen Tipper chose Albufeira

We loved the apartment as soon as we saw it, its bright and spacious. The open plan area has lovely open views from the balconies. The bedrooms are downstairs and both have direct access to the gardens. Our apartment is close to one of the 4 pools and also to the Reception and mini market.

What makes this apartment unique

We chose Clube Albufeira for its closeness to the Old Town with all its bars, restaurants, lovely beaches and also for the many golf courses around the area.

The complex is well maintained with lovely garden areas, 4 pools with snack bars and restaurants if you dont feel like heading into town,

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you very much for a wonderful stay in your apartment. We really enjoyed ourselves and we needed was here. We would love to return someday.

Beautiful, clean spacious apartment. Well equipped and located in a quiet part of the site.

  • 5 of 5

Well looked after by property manager who arranged transfers for us and communicated well throughout the reservation process and during our stay. There was nothing else we needed during our stay. We found Club Albufeira a great venue with four lovely pools that are clean and well managed: plenty to do on site. The town is a reasonable walk but manageable when tackled at the cooler part of the day. Local taxi firms are reasonable. We would recommend this apartment to anyone who is looking for a quiet few days in the sun.

Great holiday, thats what its all about!

  • 5 of 5

The minute we booked, we had great correspondence with the lady who looks after the house. Eileen is very helpful and keen to help make your holiday go with ease. We opted for airport pickup which was great and reccommended which let us avoid those nasty hire car price hikes at this time of year. After a short journey we arrived at Casa Freedom. This is a well laid out house with great features split over 2 levels so may not suit people who find stairs challenging. The kitchen dining area was open plan with great space. Plenty of utensiles, pots and pans, plates dish washer wash machine etc for people who may cook from time to time. Two balconies on the upper floor which has seating bbq area etc. Tv xbox and internet available. Wc on this level also. Decor is good, vibrant and clutter free. Downstair there are 2 rooms, 1 with bouble bed and en suit which includes a shower the other with 2 single beds. A large Wc which included a bath/shower combined. There is an area with bunk beds which would suit children or small adult. Air con upstairs and downstairs. Downstairs their is also a patio area off the main bedroom which hosts table chairs and sun loungers this is a great area as the sun is at this side of the house a during morning to late aftetnoon. The house was clean, tidy and well laid out. Towels and bed linen where provided. Bed linen changed each week. The Eileen checked in to make sure everything was ok and trouble free. As a family of 2 adults and 2 kids of 8 and 5 years old we had plenty to do in the area with the old town 5 minutes taxi ride or 15 minute walk well maybe 20 with 2 kids. 4 Pool areas was good, well maintained and clean. We had a very enjoyable stay at Casa Freedom and would reccomend to anyone. May not suit people who have difficulty with steps as there are plenty in the area. This is nothing to do with Casa Freedim though.

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was big and very well equipped. We had a couple of little glitches but they were dealt with very promptly by Eileen, the manager of the property. Easy to get into Albefuira either by walking (about 30 minutes) or shuttle bus. We walked (we are in our late 60's) and didn't find it a problem, however the area is probably not suitable for people with mobility issues. The apartment is definitely well suited for families or two couples, with plenty of space for everyone.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at Casa Freedom, travelled with my husband and our friends and thier two children aged 6 and 8. The apartment has two bedrooms one with a massive king size bed which was so comfortable, this room also has an ensuite shower room, the second room has twin beds and is next to the main bathroom. There are bunk beds in an alcove right beside the bedrooms which the children loved.

Upstairs is the open plan living/Dining room and small but very well equipped kitchen, there is also another toilet as well as two balconies.

We loved our evenings spent in the garden outside apartment with a bbq and a few drinks and as both bedrooms have patio doors leading to garden once the children went to bed we were just steps away.

The apartment is very close to one of the pools and the owners have even provided inflatables for the pool, there is also a selection of books,games,dvd's and PlayStation games.

We didn't venture too far from the complex but reception will call for taxis if needed and there is a courtesy bus during the day into the old town which is full of shops, restaurants and bars.

Must mention Eileen the property manager who answered all of our many pre trip questions without delay and who also organised our airport transfers it was great knowing everything was under control thanks Eileen we hope to return one day.

Wonderful apartment, fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This is really a wonderful place to stay! It was our second time in this apartment; the first time through the previous owners. We loved it the first time, but the improvements the new owners have made are great!

It's got all the amenities one needs; the owners have even considered needs of families with children (safety gate for the stairs, even beach toys, books, and games). Very comfortable, and although we hardly used the new air conditioning, it was nice to have available just in case.

Along with the owners, who have done so much, special thanks to property manager Eileen, who made this trip as painless as possible by answering all of our questions and taking such good care of us.

Thanks for a great holiday!

Lovely relaxing stay in this home from home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this lovely apartment with my dad and two children and we had a great time. The apartment was spotlessly clean when we arrived, we came in on a late evening flight and had emailed Eileen the manager to ask for a welcome pack, everything we asked for was there and we just paid her when she visited the following day. She told us to let her know if she could help us with anything else and to call if we had any problems, happily we had no problems at all but got the feeling that nothing would be too much trouble for her she was lovely.

The apartment is in a great position just behind O Pavilhao restaurant and pool it is also just a few minutes walk to the small mini market and reception.

The apartment itself is bright, clean and well looked after and has everything you could possibly need including hairdryer and hair straighteners, iron and ironing board, there is a good selection of dvd's and books for both adults and children and we loved being able to play our own music via Bluetooth to the docking station.

The bedrooms are downstairs and they felt quite cool at night so we didn't need the air conditioning on, they were also nice and dark because of the outside shutters.

The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could ever need and we did eat in a couple of times.

O Pavilhao is really nice to eat at with a snack menu during the day and a la carte at night. If you want to go in to town reception will call a taxi for you it costs about four euros there is an amazing amount of restaurants and bars lots with live music and there's a great atmosphere.

The beaches are beautiful and the old town was our favourite part.

We all had a great time and would love to go back again, would recommend this apartment for its size as it gives you that bit more privacy and for its proximity to the pool, shop and reception
