Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5, and differ very much in age, myself, my hushand, 21 year old daughter who has just finished University so needed and fancied a free holiday, a 17 year old son and 8 year old son so to find an apartment to suit my family can be hard, this was great, big enough for the 5 of us, it was spotless and had everything you needed, nothing had been forgotton. The pool was great to, most days we had it to ourselves and the couple of days we didn't there was only a couple of Portugese families round, it was so chilled and peaceful. It was our first time in Portugal and to be honest the time we went we chose the busiest time of the year, beginning of August and it was also the Portugese holidays so the area was very very busy but everything was pretty much in walking distance as getting a taxi was quite hard some days as the queues was massive with it been so busy, the strip is a comfortable walk of 5 minutes, the old town is a little bit further and having an 8 year old on our shoulders can be difficult with the heat but it was manageable, we got the train sometimes and a tuk tuk which was fun. The old town is stunning, we loved it and the beaches are fab. We normally go to Cyprus as we love Cyprus but I can honestly say the beaches was just as nice here.

All in all we could not have asked for a better host in Andy he was incredible to be honest, was waiting for us on our arrival which was a very late flight, sorted out everything, was just a call away, the fan in the apartment broke while we was there, I e-mailed Andy and the same day he brought a brand new one,, you cannot ask for anything more than that,he was great. It is the third year we have stayed in a private apartment now and Andy was the best host ever.

When we first got to Portugal we thought it was rather expensive as when our family of 5 was going for a drink just for 5 simple drinks it could be 15 Euros but after a couple of days we realised the Portugese bars was a lot more reasonable, i.e. same drinks for 8 Euros. There are quite a few Portugese bars to just very slightly off the beaten track and they are great, all have pool tables, darts etc etc.

I would recommend this apartment for anyone wanting a reasonable, clean, very assessible apartment. Would I every go back, YES WE WOULD.

Lovely large apartment in central location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days here in May. The apartment had everything we needed & when we had a small problem we rang Andy & he came very quickly & sorted it out. The pool we had to ourselves most days which was great & sunbeds were provided for our own use with cushions we took down from the apartment. The apartment is located about a 10 min walk from the Strip one way & Old Town is in the opposite direction probably about a 15-20 min walk, we always got a taxi which was roughly 5 euros. The area surrounding the apartment was on the flat & there are 3 supermarkets, a bakery & a few restaurants close by. We had a lovely holiday here, great weather & many thanks to Andy for making it all so easy.

Sue & Nigel.

Perfect Break Away

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I have just returned from a perfect break away. Communication with Andy prior to arrival was very good and he picked us up from the airport. The apartment is immaculate and has everything that you need. The pool is lovely and we had it to ourselves the whole time. It's in a good location - quick transfer from the airport, supermarket very close by, short walk to 'the strip' and a quick taxi ride into the old town. Highly recommended.

Prime location.

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Andy's apartment had everything you could need for a good holiday, and was in a good location 5 mins from strip and 15 mins to old town. Had pool to ourselves all week and Andy provides​ your own personal sunbeds and mats.Only downside was traffic noise during night. You may have to invest in some earplugs if you are a light sleeper like me. But overall good value for money.

Great location, Great apartment, Great host

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant holiday, Andy the owner could not do enough for you, from the first enquiry email to the drop off at the airport. After a late arrival Andy picked us up and had all the basics waiting for us milk, bread, water & loo rolls etc waiting for us. Arrived at the apartment which was spotless, the English TV and WiFi was a godsend with 2 kids in tow, it has a lovely big pool which we had to ourselves, ideally situated between the Strip and Old Town, the Old Town is much better for families in my opinion, overall a great weeks break, thanks Andy
