About Ms S. Carr
I purchased my first villa in the Algarve in 1996/1997. After having seen dozens of different villas along the Algarvian coast up to Burgau, west of Lagos, I fell in love with the town of Carvoeiro and its "small seaside town" atmosphere and charm. The town centre is small but it has everything to offer: shops, banks, pharmacy, numerous restaurants and plenty of bars and cafes and of course sandy beaches. I moved to live permanently in the Algarve in 2000 leaving behind a busy career in the City in London and I set up a villa management business. I look forward to welcoming you in the villa. Best regards Sam Carr
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The villa is wonderful with large, spacious rooms and grounds. The kids loved playing in the gardens and in the pool. Just a 10 minute walk from Carvoeiro centre and beach with plenty of bars and restaurants. The eight of us had a wonderful time with special thanks to Sam throughout the whole booking, build up and stay !!
Thank you for your fantastic review which is greatly appreciated. It is always rewarding to know that guests have enjoyed their stay. Obviously it would be our pleasure to welcome you again at Casa Joaninha or any other villa that I manage in the area.
Old but nice
A bit worn out
But nice spot
A fantastic villa for our family holiday
We had a brilliant time at Casa Joaninha. Our group was 6 adults and 2 small children, the villa was perfect for us as the two double bedrooms are very large so there was more than enough space for cots and other baby equipment. The layout of the villa is great, there are several areas to sit and eat outside, including the upstairs roof terrace with barbecue which was fantastic in the evenings. The pool was perfect for our group, especially as it has steps which make it much easier and safer for the children, as well as a gate. The host was superb too, she ensured that we had everything we needed and even provided a few drinks and snacks for us upon arrival. All in all we couldn't find any fault with our stay and would highly recommend it to others looking for a family holiday in the Algarve.
Thank you for your review which is much appreciated. It is fantastic to hear that you and the family enjoyed your stay and I look forward to welcoming you again at Casa Joaninha or at any other of my villas.
Very well equipped, nice walks to restaurants - within fifteen minutes walk to the beach and centre of town. Helpful mamager and excellent cleaning staff of villa and pool. We would definately go again.
Love, love, love Casa Joaninha
This villa has everything. Spacious air conditioned rooms, large lounge with TV plus additional lounge on the first floor. Large terraces, heated pool, BBQ, washing machine, dishwasher and, as a self-employed web developer, solid wifi for that spot of work late in the evening (and some Netflix for the children).
The villa is set within the Quinta do Paraiso resort and their reception, bar/restaurant, pool and mini-market are a stones throw.
Both Carvoeiro beaches are within short walking distance too, just 15 mins to the main beach.
As for Sam, the villa manager, very accommodating, had the fridge filled with some basics for eating after our late night flight arrival.
We are a family of 6. Our kids are 9, 8, 4, 3 and they've had a blast, my in-laws also joined us during our last week and things didn't feel cramped.
I'd have no hesitation in booking this villa again or indeed any other that Sam manages.
Thanks for making our holiday great.
Agréable séjour et belles prestations
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans une maison idéalement placé pour accéder aux commodités (plage, commerce et restaurant ). Les prestations accordées dans le cadre à location sont top (ménage en cours de séjour, accueil, literie et équipement...)..
Une préconisation : un frigo plus grand serait à prévoir pour des familles de huit personnes. Il s’agit là d’un détail...
Nous recommandons vivement cette location...
Thank you for your review which is greatly appreciated. Nice to hear you enjoyed your stay and the villa, and we hope that you, Jerome and the families will return in not-so-distance future.
