Why Malcolm & Tessa 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. We can arrange transfers from Faro airport with a local taxi company at much cheaper rates.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Beautiful spacious apartment, central location
We had the most fabulous week here.
The apartment its self was spotless when we arrived and instructions to gain access were clear and concise from Tessa our host. The private garden was great for lying out on the sun loungers and it got the sun for the day. The pool at the back was a welcome addition for a quick dip to cool off in the heat, and it too was clean and never busy.
Tessa out host was great communicating with us and even arranged taxi pick up and drop off from the airport which was fantastic.
All in all a great apartment with easy access to the town and stunning views from the boardwalk just 100m or so down the road.
Really glad we chose to stay here and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for some where to stay that is spacious and quite in Carvoerio!
We would definitely return!
Thanks a million Tessa for everything!!
We felt at home pretty much immediately and loved how close it was to the beach.
this was a peaceful apartment in a good location provided you can climb the hill. has its own garden which was a bonus and pleasant to sit in. comfortable.
Thank you for your honest review. We agree that the shortest route up from the beach and village is steep, but there is a longer route which is a gentle hill.
Couldn't have asked for better.
The apartment is conveniently placed by the boardwalk and if is very easy to walk into Carvoeiro and restaurant hill. It was beautifully clean and very well equipped with a lovely garden and plenty of outdoor space. I would recommend staying here to anyone.
Thank you for your helpful comments. It is good to know that you appreciate the desirable location of our apartment, and we realise the importance of having high standards of cleaning.
Spacious, quiet and attractive flat near coast with private garden and use of swimming pool
This ground floor flat is at the west end of an attractive white staggered two storey building. It opens up via patio doors from the lounge (with extendable external awning) and both bedrooms onto a partly paved enclosed garden. There is a small private swimming pool at the east end which we could use.
Inside there is a large lounge/dining room, modest but adequate kitchen, fridge/freezer room adjacent, and two double bedrooms with large but unintrusive built-in mirrored wardrobes. All normal equipment was provided.
The location was ideal for us as close to the coast with its boardwalk east and short walk down into the centre and to the sandy beach with clear water. The cliffs here are an amazing yellow/orange colour and eroded with caves and dramatic shapes.
The owners are a friendly couple who called in once to check all was ok.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay.
Thank you for your kind and very helpful, full description of our apartment, garden, and area. We do appreciate your thoroughness in writing it. Tessa and Malcolm
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.
Thank you for your kind words and we appreciate all comments so we can make any necessary improvements. Sorry that the hills were a problem though.
