About patricia jaycock

We moved from England to Lagos in 1999 and live there till 2004, we loved living there but moved to Ireland to give our teenage children a better education. The whole family loved living in Portugal and miss it very much. Our children are now grown up and we all still enjoy visiting Portugal and still have many friends there. We have over the years renovated the villa and we love spending time there, we hope you will love it and the area as much as we do.

patricia jaycock purchased this villa in 2003

Why patricia jaycock chose Luz

We love this villa because it is wonderfully quiet and private but near beaches, towns and all activities. It has lots of space inside and out and we have had up to 10 family and friends staying there. The outside area is great for BBQ's and has speakers to listen to music outside and when dark the pool lights give a great atmosphere. We enjoy walking and there are some great walks from the villa and in general area. The time of year we love most is May/June and September/October when the weather is beautiful and its not so crowded.

What makes this villa unique

There is everything you will need to enjoy your holiday, You are greeted by Joao the villa manager, he will show you round supply you with your keys, show you how everything works and answer all your questions,Maria and the maids will visit twice weekly there will be a welcome selection of hot and cold drinks waiting for you in the kitchen, free to use coloured beach / bathing towels If you have a baby there is a cot and high chair set up and ready for you If you require extra beds these will be set up and ready for you.

Absolutely wonderful stay at a gorgeous villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautiful and spacious. A real home from home comprising everything you would possibly need. A child friendly pool with plenty of seating and sun beds outside. Towels are changed midweek. There were even dishwasher tablets, and other essentials there including a lovely welcome pack. The owners have clearly thought of everything to make our stay a memorable one.

Fantastic family villa

  • 5 of 5

The greatest compliment you can ever pay to a holiday villa, is wanting to go back and missing the place when you get home. Which is how we felt about our trip. We loved staying in this beautifully appointed house with everything you need for a lovely holiday. Many happy hours were spent sat around the pool and terrace area, but you also have Luz with its beautiful beach and great restaurants close by. It is an excellent base for exploring the area too.

The villa is extremely comfortable, spacious and clean. We stayed for two weeks with friends and there was plenty of space for everyone and wifi for the teenagers. Definitely hope to return. The owners were on hand to promptly resolve a problem with the fridge, couldn't fault the customer service.

Thank you for such a great holiday. 😊

Relaxing family fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday. The villa lived up to all our expectations. It was very highly appointed and had everything we could wish for. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and everything was spotlessly clean. We needed somewhere quiet to relax and this was it. It's set in a peaceful location in lovely surroundings. My girls especially loved the hammocks and swinging chair for relaxing/ reading. The pool just right for cooling down in. Very easy access to both Luz and Lagos. Fabulous and would highly recommend.

a very beautiful and relaxing villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very clean and tasteful. Beautiful patio and pool well-secluded from neighbouring houses, spacious and stylish bedrooms, well-equipped kitchen. we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the house, especially because it is not far away from beautiful beaches of the western Algarve.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Rocha Baixa is an absolutely beautiful, well equipped home away from home. There was nothing that we could not access at our fingertips. The grounds and house were spotlessly clean with mid week cleaners coming in for towel changes and cleaning. State of the art kitchen made it very easy to prepare foods not only for breakfast and lunches, but dinners as well with barbequing close at hand.

Lagos is about a ten minute drive away with all the needs for markets and grocery stores required. Great fun wandering up the waterside with local vendors and their goods. We did have a car which made it very easy to travel around. Beaches were close at hand however the wonderful pool was an easy access to relax either in the sun or shade.

This was our first visit to Portugal and we would love to return again. We would highly recommend this property to all.

Thank you Pat and Trisch for our wonderful stay.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Rocha Baixa , it was a Home away from Home for us as we stayed for 5 weeks. The villa is spotless clean, one of the best equipped kitchens we have so far come across - and we travel a lot , all over the world . We enjoyed the heated pool and the private outside space with a well equipped barbecue and shaded areas to relax and eat.

There is a huge collection of DVD's and CD's as well as an I- Pod station for music inside & outside and a comfortable sofa to lounge on.

Rocha Baixa is conveniently situated between Lagos & Luz - a few minutes drive to beautiful beaches , although there are buses and taxis, a car is definitely recommended.

There is a holiday complex a couple of min walk with a nice bar & pool area and good food, the manager Carlos speaks perfect english and is very welcoming.

We enjoyed our stay a lot - thank you Pat & Trisch for creating such a great space.
