Great holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Really happy with the peace and seclusion this house gave us. Very clean and well equipped, it's got everything. Great showers, kitchen , pool, bbq area and wi fi, spot on.

Half an hour from the airport and 10-15 mins from the lovely Tavira and the beaches, great location.

All instructions and directions were supplied to make this an easy week away. The photo's don't do this house justice, it's nicer than we expected and the weather was fab in June.

A car is essential.

Fantastic property, quiet location, lovely pool

  • 4 of 5

The property was perfect for our family (2 adults, 1 child). The property was clean and very well equipped. The rooms are a very good size. The BBQ house is ideal as it has a big BBQ and a sink. The pool was a lovely size for the 3 of us and the patio area was perfect. The villa is remote yet only a few minutes drive from the nearest village and about 10-15 minutes drive to Tavira and local beaches. Sue, the owner, was very helpful and very accomodating and always answered my pre-stay queries promptly. The map she provided us to find the property was spot-on! If you want a wonderful property in the middle of nowhere, this is the property for you! As soon as we came back to the UK we booked it again for our 2014 summer holiday.

lovely cottage in a rural setting

  • 4 of 5

Casa Havana was perfect for our family. The cottage has good facilities, was clean and welcoming. The pool area is lovely - indeed we managed several swims at night. The covered BBQ area was very useful. The cottage is well located and it was fairly easy to get to the Tavira beaches and also to get onto the motorway for trips to the waterparks etc. We would definitely visit again. Great regular contact as well with the owner who couldn't have been more helpful.

Very disappointing

  • 1 of 5

What a disappointing villa! Arrived with our barbeque coals and fresh fish looking forward to a swim. Spent my first half hour vacuuming up the ant powder sprinkled liberally round the back doors, kitchen units, and lidless bin. Decided not to swim as the pool was not looking too clean. Went to cook on the barbeque but there were no tools.

Casa Havana may have been “newly modernised” several years ago when the description was written but it is now getting a bit down at heel. No hot water in the ensuite if the sun didn’t shine, broken lock on the bathroom door, the list seemed to grow the longer we stayed. Be warned, there are many lovely villas with conscientious owners in the Algarve. Casa Havana is one to avoid.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately every once in a while you get a client that is extreamly difficult and unable to please in any way, Mr Moffett is this person. His list of complaints were endless and completely unfounded. The manager calls at the villa twice a week to clean the pool and check all is OK, Mr Moffett made no complaint at any time but waited 7 months to do so. As the owner I make sure that the villa and pool are clean at all times even when empty. I beleive this man to be a compensation seeker as his complaint are a pack of lies. Warning to all villa owners, beware of Mr Moffett of Paisley, Scotland, An absolute nightmare. Sue Hadden,

Lovely villa in a rural area

  • 5 of 5

A really lovely villa in a secluded area. The villa was very well equipped and the pool was delightful, we used the fantastic barbecue to cook our fish bought from the fish market in Tavira caught that morning. The kitchen had everything you needed and the books in the sideboard proved useful. We had fantastic weather and would recommend Tavira Island. The big supermarket in the shopping centre we thought was quite expensive make use of the smaller local ones and the market.

Owner's Response: Many clients inform me that they have had a most enjoyable holiday at Casa Havana and that the villa was first class, they email me on their return with comments that make me very proud, many return year after year, unfortunately they do not make their comments known on HomeAway website. Kind regards, Sue Hadden
