About Rhonda Waters
Thank you for considering our villas. The villas are family owned, we are a mixture of honest retired and working professionals living in Scotland, Ireland and the Middle East. We have spent many holidays in Guia for the past 25 years. The location is perfect for us to meet as a family as it is only 30 minutes drive from Faro Airport. We love the peacefulness of both Villa Os Pinheiros, which is set amongst the vines and Villa Aguas, which is set within the quiet residential location of Quinta dos Alamos. We undertook the serious task of renovating Villa Os Pinheiros followed by Villa Aguas and have created beautiful comfortable homes. We believe that whatever is worth doing at all, is worth doing well. We can arrange a FaceTime call with myself or the villa manager.
Rhonda Waters purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Rhonda Waters chose Guia
We love the variety of good value restaurants in Guia and recommend the local small market for the daily fish, fruit and vegetables. The beautiful beaches are 4 km away. With fantastic shopping and entertainment nearby, including Algarve Shopping and the Zoomarine wildlife and theme park the central location of Guia it perfect for all ages.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa has been extensively remodelled to create a beautiful home that is both practical and comfortable. It has been furnished to an exceptionally high standard and will provide visitors with an oasis in the sun to unwind and enjoy the best of the Algarve. As a keen gardener we loved the established manicured private gardens which are surrounded by mature hedging. The magnificent gardens have meandering pathways through the lawns and plenty of mature palms and fruit trees.

We had an amazing 11 days staying in the cottage here. The cottage and villa are set in beautiful peaceful countryside. We were met by Carol who was so helpful and showed us round the property...had lovely chats with her during our stay. The gardens and properties are immaculate and have all facilities...cannot fault anything. Pool was heated for us pre-stay..it was so warm and is very clean. The villa is near all local ammenaties and Sir Cliff Richards villa and wine yards are 2 minutes walk away !
Do not hesitate to book a stay here...we will be back....loved it.
Luxury and then some
What a wonderful property, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The property is fully deserving of its title as a luxury villa. We arrived to a well stocked fridge of essentials, which was most welcome. The villa is spacious, with plenty of break out areas if a little peaceful solitude is required. If relaxing by the poolside is your idea of holiday bliss, then the poolside area is provided with everything you require, from various loungers and tranquil shaded areas. Our group contained both bathers and active members, so there was plenty of cycling, walking and golfing for the active. The basement level Games Room, allowed the late nighters amongst us to carry on our holiday spirit into the night without disturbing the early bedders, which was most welcome. Special shoutout to our hostess, Carol, for always being available if required and for being very informative about the local area. Great holiday, great venue.
Thank you for taking time to share your holiday experience at our villa. Glad that you had some fun in the games room, it's a popular place! Hope to see you again from the luxuryalgarvevilla team !
Gem in the Algarve
We had a fantastic stay at Villa Os Pinheiros. This villa has got the lot. A great location, secluded but 5 minutes from the best beaches and restaurants in the Algarve. We loved the heated pool, BBQ and games room. Most of our time was spent here just soaking up the sun and enjoying the villa. Everything is catered for and to a very high standard. Just perfect. It’s just a short walk to the town of Guia where we found some great restaurants that were very reasonably priced and with delicious menus. We will definitely return as soon as possible.
Thank you for the wonderful review, we agree the location of Villa Os Pinheiros is perfect.
Hope to see you again.

Villa Os Pinheiros
What a wonderful stay we had at this beautiful villa. It all starts when you enter through the electric gates which reveals the stunning gardens complete with palm trees, mature plants and an array of beautiful flowers. It really made an amazing first impression. It just gets better as you enter the main villa through the bright welcoming entrance opening into a luxurious open lounge area. We felt the villa just flowed naturally from the entrance through the main living area and out onto the dining balcony with magnificent panoramic views of the vines and countryside beyond. Our party of 5 adults and 4 children got settled quickly into the adjacent bedrooms and garden cottage. We loved the large heated pool which became the focal point of our stay as we were able to spend hours every day swimming then enjoying the BBQ area and games room adjacent. To be honest the kids were able to entertain themselves all day under the supervision of the adults with little fuss. There are plenty of areas within the gardens and upper roof terrace for anyone who wanted some time to themselves to read or sunbathe in the wonderful Algarve weather. The large dinning kitchen allowed us to dine in on several occasions during our stay as it has all the utensils required for those who love to cook and use the superb local produce bought at the market in Guia. When we did drag ourselves away from the villa we loved walking to the local restaurants in the quaint town of Guia. 15 minutes from the gates of Os Pinheiros and you have the choice of numerous restaurants of great quality. Dinning out was very reasonable and the selection is wide and varied. Our favourites included O Viera for the chicken piri piri, Ideal’s for the prawn and monkfish kebabs and Atlantico for fish or tasty steaks. All washed down with the local vino. All in all we can’t fault this wonderful villa in any way and hope by posting this review we can share this gem of the Algarve with others.
Thank you for the wonderful description of Os Pinheiros, you described it perfectly. We take great care in making the outside spaces special as this is where you will spend most of your time.
There is nothing better than having a stroll to Guia for a nice evening meal.
Hope to see you again,
The luxuryalgarvevilla team.
Stunning villa and cottage in the perfect locatio.
This is our 2nd visit to Villa Os Pinheiros. We had a lovely family holiday here then we moved to Villa Aguas nearby for a restful break.
What can I say, it is a truly outstanding high quality villa, with separate guest cottage which was perfect for our 3 generation family. I can honestly say that it is one of the finest villas in the area, set in peaceful landscaped gardens offering lovely country views, total seclusion and privacy, enclosed by fencing and electric gates. Sir Cliff Richard´s villa and vineyards surround the villa.
The large swimming pool was heated and had shallow roman steps which was idea for the younger grandchildren. The pool is surrounded by sunbathing and a shaded pergola area with 10 sun loungers and dining tables/chairs. The lawned garden were beautiful and we made a lot of use of the feature built-in BBQ area. On the beautiful terrace overlooking the pool and gardens is a large al fresco dining area. At the bottom of the garden there is a lovely thatched & decked pergola with 2 sunbeds. The different seating areas in the garden and mezzanine gave everyone their own space.
Everything about Os Pinheiros is as explained in the webpage and more, in reality it is better than the photos.
We have already booked for next year.
I would highly recommend this villa, the booking process was efficient and Carol the villa manager was very nice and had some good hints for our holiday.
Thank you for taking the time to submit your holiday experience at our villa.
See you next year.

Amazing Villa with Superb Facilities
We booked Villa Os Pinheiros the year prior to our arrival for my whole family (11 people) to celebrate my mums 60th Birthday. During the lead up to our stay Rhonda went above and beyond to help with all of our needs and questions, including help with transfers, recommendations for restaurants and activities and also organised a complimentary cake and champagne for my mums big day! The Villa itself was amazing and so luxurious, with lots of space and hideaways if needed when staying with a big family! The grounds and gardens were particularly spectacular and very well looked after. Carol the villa manager was always on hand if needed and we were well looked after. The location is also great with lots of beautiful, reasonably priced restaurants and lovely beaches nearby if you can steal yourself away from the pool. Overall we had a very special stay and one we will always remember and will definitely recommend to anyone thinking of a break in Portugal.
What a lovely celebration holiday you have had.
Delighted to hear that the villa lived up to your expectations it's perfect for a big family get together, we are looking forward to our family holiday soon.
Hope you can return soon, thank you for being great guests.
Rhonda and the luxuryalgarvevilla team.
