About Rosaleen Crawford
We are a couple in our fifties who like to holiday in comfort. We both work long hours so we feel that our holidays should be special. Like lots of people we have been to all the usual holiday hot spots so we feel we know what people expect when they stay at our apartment. This is the first time we have owned a place abroad so we were very careful in selecting someone to look after the apartment and our guests for us. Teresa our local agent speaks perfect English and goes out of her way to ensure our guests are comfortable (she once made an ill guest chicken soup-you don't get that kind of service on a package deal!). She also owns the village tourist office so is the ideal person when it comes to to advising on everything from airport transfers to trips.
Rosaleen Crawford purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Rosaleen Crawford chose Olhos de Água
We loved the area as soon as we set eyes on it. Nestled between Vilamoura and Albufeira this is a real quaint fishing village. Here you can watch the fishermen unload their catch each day and eat that same catch that night in one of the many restaurants. A very relaxed place no need to get dressed up at night if you don't feel like it. Friendly people who have time to chat and are genuinely happy to see you. No loud discos etc but cafes by the beach, just perfect for watching the waves over a cold beer. It's our perfect place to unwind and best of all its only a couple of hours away.
What makes this Apartment unique
We have been renting our apartment out for most of the summers and reports back from our guests have been great. Each and every one had nothing but praise for the apartment and the complex. Location is a big plus, near enough to walk to the beach and all the restaurants and bars but quiet at the same time. Safe for children as there is no access to the complex without a key which parents are keen on. With the washer/dryer and dishwasher guests say they have rarely stayed anywhere so well equipped. Glad to say many of our guests have rebooked time and time again.

Perfect apartment, had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. Very clean, comfortable and well furnished. Ideally situated, close to shops, bars, restaurants and the beach. Will definitely return.
Hi Heather, Thank you so much for your kind review. So glad to hear you enjoyed our holiday home as much and we do. Look forward to hearing from you next time you plan on visiting.
Very nice apartment with all you need... a bit annoying when the water is turned off.
The apartment building is not good if you rely on a lift as very steep steps down to get in and did not see this in the literature. Very convenient for the bus stops and Expose very helpful. Lots of nice restaurants around. Great bakers nearby too.
Loved the location, apartment and weather - amazing for December.
Wonderful apartment, very impressive, central location in lovely fishing village. Well equipped with everything one would require. Absolutely nothing negative can be said of this apartment!
Thank you for your kind review we are really glad you enjoyed your stay.

Perfect family holiday 5*
Immediate response to initial query. We received quick response to all questions. One week before we received clear instructions. Arrival process was efficient. Apartment exceeded expectations, well catered for and very much home from home. The pool area was lovely and not too busy which suited us well. We travelled as a family of three and the apartment had plenty of room. Our 5 year old had a fab time. The location of the apartment was excellent, easy walking distance to supermarket, beach and lovely restaurants all close by. We would use apartment again if we were to revisit the area. Thank you for a fabulous stay. The Morgan Family x
Many thanks for your lovely review. So glad to hear you enjoyed our apartment as much as we do. Hope to hear from you next time you visit sunny Algarve.
Best wishes and thanks again for your booking.

The apartment was everything we needed and we were well supported by the nearby travel agency for s few trips we took.
We slept well each night and the air con was efficient but only needed a little . I'd recommend this for one parent and two children such that my holiday was.
Coast/Beach: 8 minute walk to the beautiful blue flag beach of Olhos de Agua beach with its sheltered coves. Falesia beach one of the finest in Europe is just around the headland and from here you can walk along the beach to Vilamoura across miles of golden sand. Travel: Faro airport only 25 minutes away by car. Albuferia 5 minutes by bus. Taxis & Bus stops 2 minutes from apartment. Car hire is available but not essential as the bus service is very good and cheap. Can arrange private transport from airport to apartment 30 euros if required. Private mini bus available to all major attractions via our managing agent Expose. Distances: 2 water parks Slide and Splash and Aqualand with easy driving distance. Zoomarine offering dolphin shows etc a 15 minute drive away. All are well worth a visit for adults and kids alike. The marina in Villamoura with its fabulous yachts is a ten minute drive away, great for lunch and people watching in the sunshine. Supermarket, pharmacy, restuarants and our agent all within 2 minutes walk. No need for a car! Further Details: Nightlife in Olhos d'Agua tends to be centred around the excellent restaurants and open aired cafes, for those looking for a more lively evening Albufeira is 3km away with the taxi rank being one minute away. Bus service is also available. Excellent restaurants; La Cigale overlooking the beach view is stunning. Azul fish restaurant in the village, excellent food and service. Restaurant Olhos De Agua excellent original Portuguese food with very friendly staff. So many nice places to eat it's hard to go wrong.
