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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We absolutely loved everything about the apartment.Very well equipped, tastefully furnished and centrally located for restaurants, supermarkets and shops. Highly recommended." Marian & Ray Martin, Essex



Just dropping you a quick line to thank you for the use of your beautiful apartment over the last week and a half. Your very eloquent description of your apartment still doesn't do it justice ! Everything from the arranged transport, location , comfort , equipment was first class .

It was our first time in Olhos D'Agua , even though we have been regular visitors to Portugal over the years ,and again we were very impressed . The beach is fantastic, and the variety of little cafes and bars around the prom were all excellent !

Many thanks again , Noel & Dee O'Sullivan Ireland

Perfect family holiday 5*

  • 5 of 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

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

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.

lovely appartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this lovely appartment in August 2016. Our transfers were sorted for us, good both ways. The location is very good with plenty of bars and restaurants near by. The appartment is lovely, modern and clean. Would recommend this. It's a 35-40 minutes walk to the main strip or 10 minutes taxi. Lovely beaches 5-10 minutes walk. We really enjoyed our stay.
