Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in Aug 2015 and had a fantastic holiday in this superb apartment with luxury fixtures/fittings. Great position on small complex with views over the pool which was quiet even at peak season meaning we often had it to ourselves! Pool large enough for lengths yet very child friendly. Superb layout with sunny first floor patio which was bathed in sunlight all day. Great BBQ, fantastic roof terrace with luxury rattan furniture. Car hire recommended for travel to beaches, free short tennis on site and 5 star Villa sol hotel and golf course clubhouse 2 minutes walk away for a 'luxury' drink or dining. Very secure with blackout shutters and efficient air con. Sky TV. A very good supermarket nearby and Oscars Irish pub with live entertainment nightly. We were hoping for a relaxing holiday and that is exactly what we got and more. We look forward to returning.

perfect location , perfect accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We use the villa every year for a week’s golf and the location, amenities and layout suits our needs.

Joanne is a fantastic host and within 4 weeks of our return to the UK we re-book for the next year.

Everything is so simple and easy, from picking your keys up at the security house, finding the apartment, with plenty of off street parking on the door step, to returning your keys on departure.

Joanne even provides the contact of someone local in case of any issues, which I can say, in our 3 years we haven’t had to use.

We have the phone no. of Costas a local taxi driver and on an evening he collects us from the door step and takes us down to the marina then completes the return journey at the end of the evening ( approx. 10 euros )

The layout is spacious clean and tidy, with the use of Wi-Fi and a wide variety of TV Channels at your disposal.

There is also a few basics stored in a drawer if you forget to bring (adaptors, chargers, maps etc.)

There is also a well-stocked supermarket within a 5 mins drive, with a few shops/eateries within the complex.

The apartment is located within 15mins drive of all the Oceanic Golf Courses which suits our personal needs, and at the end of the cul-de-sac is the car park to Vila Sol Golf Course.

Overall we cannot find fault with the accommodation and plan on using Joanne’s hospitality for many years to come.

All we needed

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in June 2016 & it was just what we needed. The place is very clean & tidy with all the mod cons. Apart from all the great restaurants

within a 10 minute drive, my wife loved the large rooftop balcony where away from it all there was a lovely breeze when it got too hot. It was also good because I prefer the beach & she prefers the pool so due to to the apartments location we were able to alternate days at both. I love my golf

& the Vila Sol course is great. It's a 27 hole course & has something for everyone & the apartment is only a few hundred yards from the clubhouse.

The food & drink is really good in the clubhouse & the staff were very friendly. I thought the golf was a bit pricey though, so to get around it we played a couple of other courses & Twighlight at Vila Sol.( which was 45 Euro & had plenty of time to finish the round & it was cooler) ;-)

Thank you to Joanne for all the help & recommendations. I hope you'll have us back next year.

Kind regards

Mr N King

Owner's Response: Dear Nick, I'm so glad you both had a great stay at Vila Sol and in my apartment. Of course I would be very pleased to welcome you back next year (but sadly, I don't think the golf will get any cheaper!) Kind regards, Jo

First Class Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous apartment with everything you could need for a relaxing, enjoyable holiday. The owner was extremely helpful, as was the lady who looked after the apartment locally. The apartment was extremely clean and comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped. We loved the complex, so peaceful and very child friendly. There is so much space round the pool and it was never too busy. Excellent on site facilities and nowhere is more than a few minutes drive. Would highly recommend this apartment and we have booked again for 2015.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous stay over New Year, weather was great and a lovely clean apartment with good facilities including internet and TV. Well maintained complex with superb food at some local restaurants and beyond but car hire is recommended. Nearest supermarket only a few minutes away. Reasonable twilight golf rates and the course was in excellent condition. Club house serves a good breakfast and lunch in a nice setting and enjoyed evening drinks at the hotel. Booking procedure was simple enough, bathroom door handle came off during our stay but the agent was quick to send someone to fix it the next day. Thoroughly enjoyed and look forward to coming back!

Overall a good experience

  • 3 of 5

Spacious clean apartment, in a nice area on a lovely quiet, safe, complex.

There are a couple of issues with the apartment and should be reflected in the price. My husband loves his TV and the advert States UK Sky TV this is not the case, there are only a couple of UK channels available. There is Wifi but painfully slow and twice during our stay didn't work. Pillows need upgrading. No bin in the kitchen.

The pool and sunbeds (or lack of them) is an issue. There are no communal sunbeds so if you want to sit by the pool you would need to manuvere the apartment sunbeds down three flights of stairs, through the apartment and back again.(the sunbeds don't fold). However on the complex next door there are sunbeds (in theory you are not meant to use them but nobody would know where you were staying although could be an issue in summer).

Communication with the owner could be better especially when it involved money, we had to chase her a few times. We booked late so manged to get a bit of a discount, the actual price we paid reflected the standard and quality of the apartment.

There is plenty of storage space. Kitchen appliances are in good condition and clean. The master bed is very comfortable and super king sized. Plenty of outdoor space including a nice roof terrace, but no shade. Car essential

We had a great time at the appartment!

Although we did not use the rooftop terrace because of the heat and no sunscreen

Will come back again!

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beaches at Vilamoura and Quarteira are a 5-10 min drive away. Ancao beach and the Ria Formosa nature reserve are about 15-20 minutes away. The Algarve is full of fabulous clean, unspoilt beaches so if you'd like to explore a little you will find some that are non commercialised.

Travel:

The apartment is just 20 minutes drive from Faro airport, a taxi will cost approx 30 euro maybe more if supplements are added to carry golf clubs. It may be beneficial to hire a car if you want to explore the surrounding areas but a taxi into Vilamoura costs in the region of 10 euros.

Distances:

The on-site pub Oscars, Wildfire Smokehouse and Grill, wine bistro, newsagent, deli and restaurants etc are a 10 minute walk away (1km) The Vilamoura marina is a 5-10 min drive away as is the old fishing village of the adjacent Quarteira (local market on weds). The town of Loule is just 10 mins drive away which hosts a market on a Saturday.

Further Details:

Close to the entrance to the complex are a few excellent restaurants where you can enjoy typical Portuguese dining, meat and fish at prices more reasonable prices than those charged at Vilamoura marina. There is also a michelin star restaurant near the Hilton hotel in the old village called Willies.

There is an ATM machine at the golf club house and a Barclays bank and ATM at the entrance to the complex where the bar/restaurants are. The hotel spa offers guests a range of soothing therapies for total relaxation including skin care, body treatments, massages, hydrotherapy and hairdresser.
