About Angela Underwood & Kevin Bingham
We live in Woking, Surrey in England, we have 4 adult children between us. Angie and I work extremely hard and we love to travel as much as we can, especially to our second home in Portugal, where we can enjoy the beautiful beaches, the very friendly people, food and great weather. We are constantly up-grading or improving our apartment for every one`s comfort, so we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!
Angela Underwood & Kevin Bingham purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Angela Underwood & Kevin Bingham chose Areias de São João
We have been holidaying in Portugal for the past 22 years. We had always dreamt of owning our own home in Portugal. One day In the summer 2005 we were having a wonder around the beautiful Old Town, taking a break from the beach. We came across a local real estate agent and decided to just enquired about a 1 bedroom apartment. We didn`t really intend to buy an apartment that day, but the estate agent told us he had just the property for us,so he took us to view it!! Instantly we fell in love with it so we proceeded with the purchase!! The accomodation and location of this amazing apartment is just perfect!! Weather you want a relaxing or busy holiday, you will find everything you need within walking distance, this is one of the biggest reasons we bought it as it was very close to where we had always been used to staying.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our apartment faces the south, It's ideally located to all amenities so no need for a car. It is a safe and secure, comfortable, home from home, and larger than the average 1 bedroom apartment. We have beautiful private well maintained gardens and a lovely swimming pool.
Pool / Spa
Great holiday, fantastic apartment
Had a great holiday at this apartment, it was absolutely stunning and very homely, not like a holiday let at all. The location is great - so near to the "Strip" and yet no noise from it and about a 15 -20 mins walk from the "Old Town". There is a pool for the apartment residents with an adequate amount of sunbeds - so no having to get up at stupid o'clock to "reserve" your sunbed! Lol. Overall, this is a fantastic apartment which I would thoroughly recommend. We also managed to meet Angie and Kevin prior to our departure - lovely couple, very amiable.
Thank you Both for your lovely review, we always appreciate feedback from our tenants.
We try to keep our apartment comfortable and well equipped.
It was a pleasure to meet you both and pleased that your holiday was a great one!!
Hope to hear from you in the future!! 😎
We had a fantastic week in this apartment, the location is spot on, you have everything you need in the apartment, and everything you want outside, the apartment is close to the strip if that is what you want, or a stroll to the lovely old town. There are some amazing places to eat, the supermarket is 5 minutes walk away, bakery with freshly made bread and cakes just round the corner.
Would definitely recommend this apartment.
Good size apartment in quiet area, but only 5 minutes from Restaurants and Bars
Thank you for your review, I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay!!
The apartment is extremely clean, stylish and well equipped. Location great for the old town and the strip with the beautiful sandy beach being an easy stroll. Good restaurants within easy reach enjoyed the food and entertainment at Johnnys bar. Pool area clean and peaceful. Owners very helpful and happy to offer advice. Fantastic !
Thank you for your lovely review!!
The apartment was beautiful and very spacious! The balcony was the highlight - you could see the sea
Apartment had absolutely everything you could ever need on holiday - particularly the kitchen had lots of utensils. And the bed was so comfortable. The pool was lovely and very quiet. A car definitely not necessary, my friend and I walked everywhere. 5 minutes to the strip and 20 minutes to the old town. About 10/15 minutes to the beach dependent on what part you want to go to and a stones throw from a supermarket so very handy! Also lovely Greek restaurant just down the street from the apartment highly recommended. Angie was easy to communicate with and always lovely. Would recommend and would stay here again. Perfect for couples and even families if the kids don't mind a sofa bed!
