Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for the use of Casa Maui. It really was a lovely place to stay, with all our needs catered for before and during our stay.

Thank you for providing the groceries and beer, for our arrival, these along with the other provisions already in the kitchen were very much appreciated.

Our bedrooms and bathrooms were all spot on, along with bath and beach towels. I must also thank you and the lovely cleaner lady (I'm sorry I can't remember her name) for providing us all with clean bedding and towels when we had any alteration in our numbers - so many comings and goings!! But she was there at every re arrangement, tidying up and even putting up the camp bed for us! Superb service!

The pool and patio area were our 'base camp' around which we spent a lot of our time, access to the kitchen & laundry fridge were easy.

We used the bbq a few times, along with the herbs from the garden - I didn't know Rosemary could grow so big! The mint helped to make a few cocktails too!

Stuart was very attentive and kept the pool in good order, gave us advice about the taxi return to the airport & fixed a couple of minor issues immediately. I don't know if he told you, but the iron stopped working and we replaced it, by way of paying for our shopping. It wasn't very expensive at all and I left the receipt and guarantee in the box in the cupboard with the iron etc.

All the air con, tv channels and ESPECIALLY the WIFI were excellent!

So all in all a fantastic time and cannot fault the villa for facilities, value for money, location or quality of service you and your team provided. 10 out of 10!

Thank you!

Second time around here - just simply ticked all our boxes as usual.

  • 5 of 5

As stated, this is the second time in 3 years we have stayed at this property.

All I can say is that we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Just a super villa in a secluded private estate - calm and peaceful.

We will always come back to this villa should we stay again in the Algarve.

Super place as always.

Great villa with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific week here and the location of the villa is only a 15 minute walk into the centre of town. You also have the facilities of the Quinta do paraiso resort with bar pool restaurant take away and mini market on your doorstep.

Carvoeiro itself is great fantastic restaurants live music in the square and a mixture of quiet and lively bars.

We were on holiday with 4 teenagers and there was something for all of them.

However the main plus of the holiday was the villa , the pool area was just brilliant getting the sun all day with the shaded area with table and chairs to chill out.

The villa was spotless with all mod cons air-conditioning internet and satellite TV and excellent WiFi a must for teenagers.

The kitchen had all the facilities you need and Stuart checked in on us regularly to make sure we were ok and to clean the pool.

We got fresh towels and a clean on the 3rd day

It was only 14 euros in a taxi to the water park which I would also recommend.

I would come back here in a minute a thoroughly brilliant holiday experience

We have just returned from Casa Maui. We cannot fault the property and service we received.

We had, at one point, 7 in our party, including my self and husband, sister and brother in law and 3 early 20 year olds.

The villa was very clean and tidy with nice furniture, It has 3 very nicely sized bedrooms one with an ensuite. The family bathroom and ensuite both a good size, with good showers. Beds were comfy and fresh bedding and towels provided very regularly. With the bonus of having pool towels too.

We had a number of comings and goings in our party and Jane organised the cleaner (so sorry I can't remember her name) to come in at every re arrangement and she changed the beds and provided fresh towels, she even put up a camp bed for a few nights for us. Excellent service!

The kitchen and laundry room were well equipped and all in good working order,

As were the air conditioning, satellite, Internet TV and the wifi was FANTASTIC! (First time we have ever had a faultless connection on holiday!). All at no extra cost to original price quoted/paid.

The pool area was lovely with the garden, a few mosquitos but kept at bay with citronella candles in the lovely candle holders.

We used the bbq a couple of times and helped ourselves to the herbs!

The patio table provided the perfect base to spend the evenings, have lunch or just to get a bit of shade after using the sunbeds.

Stuart came regularly to sort out any minor issues and kept the pool in good order.

We had s small hire car, but there was plenty of room for s couple of cars in the drive.

The reception, communal pool and shop are all only a two minute walk away. Carvoeiro was only a 15 minute stroll too. Quite steep to get down to town in any direction, but not too arduous and a taxi is easy to come by to come back up or there is a minibus available from reception a few times a day, going to and from the town.

Casa Maui is perhaps not the most glamorous or 'fancy' villa you could chose but I really not cannot fault the facilities, location, service and value for money. Perfect in every way.

Thank you, we throughly enjoyed our holiday in Casa Maui!

Fantastic villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

Our second time staying at Casa Maui with our two children aged 7 and 2 and my sister in law and we've already booked for next year! The villa is spacious inside and out, really well equipped and lovely pool/ outdoor area. It really is a home from home and Jane is always so friendly and helpful. We love the location - very peaceful but only a 10-15 min walk from the town and lots of beautiful beaches nearby. Can't wait to come back!!

The town boasts a multitude of quality bars and restaurants to suit all. There are numerous shops, hairdressing salons, estate agents, banks, pharmacies and supermarkets all in and around the town centre. There are two large water parks on the outskirts of Carvoeiro and the famous Zoomarine where you can swim with the dolphins.

The villa is also ideally situated for nature lovers, being equidistant between Ria Formosa nature Reserve near Faro and Ria de Alvor between Portimoa and Lagos - both havens for migratory birds.
