About Joanne Jones

We are a family of four from Gloucestershire, UK.

We bought 'Casa Lilly' in March 2005 as a base to visit our family who are based in Quinta do Lago.

We have had lots of special times in Portugal and hope that our guests enjoy and love the area as much as we do.

Joanne Jones purchased this house in 2005

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks you for the use of your home. We had a great time. We often holiday in Vale Do Lobo / Quinta do Lago area and will contact you again if looking for a villa of this size. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends. Service was 1st class and the villa was immaculate.

Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

We are returning visitors and always have an excellent holiday when we come here. The Villa is like a home from home, with everything available you can think of. The minute you walk in, you feel relaxed and happy. The property is clean and well equipped, in a peaceful area but near to amenities - I can't fault it at all.

Take the advice from the owners with regards to where to go and where to eat, they have very good taste! It's easy to pay more money for a rubbish meal than less money for an excellent one sometimes, so do trust their advice and you won't be disappointed.

Thank you Steve, Joanne & Haydn for your help, advice, hospitality and strive to make sure we had a good time, we will be back (again!).

Very child friendly nice house

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here for 2 weeks in September 2017 for 2 weeks with my husband, infant daughter and parents in law. The house was nice, and any issues/questions we had were resolved immediately by the owner's father in law who lives there, as well as the girls who manage the property. Everyone was super helpful (the cleaner who was a lovely woman even babysat for us!). The great thing was that my daughter is only one, and it was great for her... they had everything from high chair, travel cot, plastic bowls, toys etc. It was fantastic. Also crucially they had stair gates (very important for Portuguese properties with dangerous marble stairs) as well as a pool guard. Overall very happy with the stay. A good price for what is a notoriously expensive area. I would go back.

Absolutely fantastic, super location a home from home.....

  • 5 of 5

A great family friendly Villa in a great location, the closest beach is less than a mile away which was lovely with great water sports.

The villa was perfect with a super pool and all the Satellite channels which was great for the kids to watch all the sport channels and movies.

The BBQ was a great asset for us to relax on the patio area with a quick dip in the pool when it got too hot.

The closest supermarkets Pingo Doce are less than a 5 minute drive away for all your groceries.

The slippers and gowns were a nice touch too.

The Cheeky Pup bar / restaurant was a great place for dining or just a drink located in a square with other restaurants, a 5 minute drive away.

Thanks to owners Jo and Steve for a super holiday 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Owner's Response: We are very happy that you all enjoyed your family holiday at Casa Lilly. We know that you made great use of the BBQ and that your teenagers loved the TV system showing all of the sports and latest films. The slippers and dressing gowns are a new addition for our guests and everyone seems to appreciate these little extra touches. A few of our guests this year have mentioned the Cheeky Pup restaurant so we will need to pay it a visit when we are next out in Portugal! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon and thenk you for your booking - Jo and Steve

Like home from home-with extras!

  • 5 of 5

A warm and wonderful welcome from Joanne. We very much appreciated the cake which we were able to have with a great cup of tea after our early start!. it was also great to be welcomed by Haydn with his knowledge of the area and to be shown how the new television system works-although the weather was so good we were able to use catch up when it was dark!

We found Casa Lilly perfect for us and will be returning next year.

Many thanks.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jane and Malcolm for your warm and friendly review of Casa Lilly. We are pleased that you found the house so comfortable and were able to relax so quickly on arrival. The television system was upgraded earlier this year with the up to date film releases, catch up and record facilities. Guests never need to miss their favourite TV programmes whilst away! I will pass your thanks onto Haydn too! He really is a fountain of knowledge and enjoys ensuring that all of our guests are happy and comfortable. We would of course love to welcome you back again in June 2018 and will keep in touch. Thank you for your booking. Warm regards, Joanne and Steve Jones
