Overview

About the property

Sleeps 4: 2-double bedrooms. 16 years old, well equipped, spacious garden

Flexible CHANGE-OVER days outside high season. Very well-equipped, unique ground-floor apartment (end of the building). Private large, secluded garden with flowers, shrubs and very large fully furnished patio with awning, sunbeds, chairs and tables. Average-sized pool (shared with only 9 other flats) with open aspect. We are on a short, quiet road in a 'villas-only' zone of this unspoilt, select fishing village. Many sandy beaches in country areas within easy reach. 8 Holidaymakers' favourable reviews. Carvoeiro is many people's favourite Algarve resort, and our apartment is really unique in its garden and 3 patios, its ideal location so close to the attractive beach, and its comfortable furniture, which we chose in the 3 years when we actually lived there. The bedrooms do not adjoin!

The ultimate indicator, we have more and more customers coming back with repeat bookings.:

JANUARY 2018

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 4 weeks in January. Loved every minute.Very comfortable apartment with everything needed available. Lovely private garden which catches the sun all day. Car or taxi needed to get to the bigger supermarkets (3.5 kms) or to the centre as walking involves very steep hills.

Location, Location, Location!

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time to stay at Villas do Mar and once again it did not disappoint. The apartment is exactly as described with the garden being the number one attraction (for us). Even in December we were able to breakfast outside in the sunshine! The beautiful cliff board-walk is at the end of the road and the beach, shops, restaurants etc. are just a few minutes walk downhill. It is a bit of a climb back up the hill so may not suit those with mobility problems.

We loved it and hope to return. Thank you Tessa and Justin.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Denise for your kind comments, which are most helpful. I agree about the steep walk downhill to the beach, but there are a few good restaurants on a level with our apartment about 5-10 mins walk away at the top of restaurant hill, so the location is not entirely unsuitable for people with mobility problems. Looking forward to your return..

Very enjoyable week

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week at Tessa and Justin's apartment.

The apartment was spotlessly clean and very well equipped.

The outside area was very nice to sit in and the location of the apartment could not have been better. My only suggestion for an improvement would be to get wifi installed. However, this is only a small point and did not take from the enjoyment of the week we had.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive comments Ken. We would agree with all you say. The reason we have not installed wifi is in order to keep our prices down, but guests can hire a router at extra cost and this works very well.

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

A very spacious apartment which is very well equipped. A lovely large garden with plenty of sunny and shaded areas. The location is ideal for the town and beach, we will definitely be recommending the apartment to family and friends. Carvoeiro is a beautiful town with loads of very good quality restaurants, our favourites included Le Cro, Tapas Iberica, Primavera, Wolf Bar & Grill. With fabulous cliff walks to gorgeous coves, beautiful sunsets..... We can't wait to return.

Simply Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

A really lovely apartment (with a garden area much bigger than the photo suggests) 2 mins from Algar Seco - with fantastic walks and fabulous views to the sea.

Very clean and well maintained with everything provided for a great holiday - couldn't have been better.

Recommend car hire to explore other beaches and coastline close by.

Owners both lovely and very helpful.

A truly great find. Thank you again, Claire

About M. Justins & T. Justins

Why M. Justins & T. Justins chose Carvoeiro

We bought this apartment for our own use when it was newly built, because it was unique in having its own private garden, placed in a quiet location, yet close to all amenities. Access to the garden is via French windows from each of the 3 main rooms.

What makes this apartment unique

Private, well-stocked garden. Peaceful, as well as attractive location, yet 5 minutes walking distance from sandy beach, lively square, all restaurants, bars and shops. No need to hire a car.
