Overview

Vilamoura Resort and Golf area Villa Rental Photos and Description

4BR, 4BA with high quality finishings incl SKY TV inc movies and sport.full A/C

Fantastic value. Free WiFi, Free Sky Sports and Free Sky Movies. This is a modern, recently built 4 bedroom (3 en-suite) 4 bathroom town house with marble and wooden floors throughout in an ideal location in Vilamoura. It is furnished to an extremely high standard and is fully air conditioned. If you don't wish to hire a car we have a local bus stop immediately opposite our house and one stop takes you to the Marina and Falesia beach. There is a timetable in the house. Wi-Fi available and free.

We have SKY+ TV including all SKY Movies and SKY Sports.

It has a BBQ/dining patio overlooking the large 15 m by 6 m pool which is only 5 paces from the house. Kitchen is equipped with Bosche fittings and is a pleasure to cook in.

Only 900 yards to 3 of the golf clubhouses ( Laguna, Millenium and Victoria) and a 4 minute drive to the marina area and beaches. Overlooks the Millenium Golf course and the sea beyond. Would suit golfers and families alike.

Entry leads you to the large open plan dinning area with solid wooden dining table with 8 leather seats, and large sitting area with new leather 3 seater, 2 seater and large armchair. Large LCD TV with DVD player and full SKY TV.

Pool: The pool is large, 15 m by 6 m and although shared with other residents is rarely used by them. Most of our neighbours either live there and take the pool for granted or use their houses as holiday homes. We have 4 sun beds dedicated for your personal use plus you can use another two of the communal beds. As our Villa is at the end of the complex you only have one neighbour. You also have great space directly in front and as the pool is only 5 paces from the Villa terrace it's easy to dive in and out without to much running about. Please have a look at our previous guests reviews. They rate us as 5 star and amongst the best villas in the Algarve. They will confirm that everyone who has visited us has enjoyed and would highly recommend our villa.

About Alfie Henighen

We are a family from Scotland who wanted a second home abroad to take advantage of the sun during our harsh winters at home. We looked at La Manga in spain before deciding that we preferred Portugal as the people seem much more friendly and Vilamoura is so diverse in offering a varied lifestyle for waterspouts, golf, beaches, nightlife and so much more.

Alfie Henighen purchased this villa in 2006

Why Alfie Henighen chose Vilamoura Resort and Golf area

We fell in love with this Villa as it was perfect for us, Right beside 3 of the golf courses yet minutes from the lively marina, The house itself is ideal as it has 4 bedrooms, two on the top floor and two on the ground floor separated by the level containing the kitchen, dinning area, sitting area and a patio with direct access to the pool which is only 5 paces from the house.

What makes this villa unique

Having the ability to lie beside the pool and soak up the sun whilst our kids can play safely in the pool right beside the house is perfect for us. If the sun is too much you can sit on the patio in shade, have a cool drink and still be a part of whats going on. The fact that we have Sky TV with all the movies and all the sports channels gives us an alternative relaxing feature which we would miss.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Recommends property: Yes

The villa was absolutely beautiful. Everything about it's furnishing was great, the kitchen had all the pots and pans you could need to cook up whatever dishes you want. The dinning room table had plenty of room for all of us (8) and there was evening a table outside. The pool was right outside the villa which was great as we could walk right out to the deckchairs. Alfie was brilliant, he provided loads of information before we went out, was quick to respond to any questions and also provided helpful phone numbers for taxis. The location of the villa is a bit away from villamora and ideally you would have a car but we didn't and it wasn't a problem. We were able to get a taxi for 1 euro each to take us to the marina/beach. Also it was only about 25 euros for a small taxi to get to albufera (which is where the best nightlife is). Would absolutely recommend this villa to anyone!

We will be back !

  • 5 of 5

If we had one bad thing to say about the Villa ..... we would be lying ! We had the pool practically to ourselves for the week ...... the place was kitted out even better than described ..... and the useful guide provided by Alfie covered everything we could have wanted to know. Nice and quiet if you have kids to get to sleep and yet just a few minutes taxi or a 35 minute walk from the heart of the Marina restaurants and nightlife ...... Alfies taxi recommendation would lift all 6 of us at 10 minutes notice by text. We weren't there for Golf but that was our loss because they are all around the complex and superb quality golf courses at that. Our biggest fear was that 6 of us would get under each other's feet for the week but the Villa is huge ...... 3 floors ....... it's bright, airy, modern, a real home from home ....... and we will be back !!!!

Owner's Response: Wow. Thanks Emmett. We really appreciate great reviews such as this. Our house is not that photogenic (or we are not very good at taking photos) and its amazing how often our guests are delighted when they arrive to find the quality, value and space is so much more than they expected. I believe if we could translate the quality of our house onto the website guests would pay a lot more to use it. However we are happy with our rental rates and the amount of guests who come back year after year tells us that we offer a great deal. The best recommendation you can get is from previous guests and we are delighted with our consistent 5 star rating. Alfie

Brilliant villa in a super location

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning a golf trip to the golfing playground that is Villa Moura you must stay here. Perfect location so close to five great courses. With so little driving time there is always great opportunity to relax and cool off in the pool before heading into town. I couldn't be complimentary enough about Alfie's place. Do yourself a favour and book it now!!!

Spacious villa in nice location

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean, modern and spacious villa which is really well equipped (Sky TV, dishwasher, WiFi, A/C etc). The air conditioning is ice cold if you want it to be and the showers are powerful. As other reviews state, the pool seems under appreciated by other residents and we mostly had it to ourselves. The location is good, close enough to the marina etc but not too close! One thing to note is that the WiFi is on a prepay system per hour so may not be suitable if you do require constant internet access, but the connection is good and the system works well if you just need it an hour or two each day (as we did). The service from Alfie the owner was faultless and we would definitely rent from him again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review Jonathan. We will have free WiFi organised for all guests from January 2016 and no one will have to pay anything and will have 24 hour WiFi. Always looking to give the very best service at all times and guest feedback is invaluable. Thanks for that. Alfie

fantastic relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the villa for 2 weeks and we had an absolutely fantastic holiday. I don't think the pictures do the villa justice its a lovely place and lots of room for 8 of us. The pool is shared but rarely was there other people in and think most I seen was 10 which included 5 of the kids in our group. Alfie is there to help you with anything and gave us useful info. The villa has full sky package including all films and sport which we found brilliant to occupy the children when the sun was it its hottest so we could keep them in the shade. The marina is about 10mins drive from the villa although if you there is a path where everyone seems to run. We would definitely be back. Thanks for a great stay Alfie

Owner's Response: Andy Thank you so much for your kind review. Its great for us to hear that the features we think are important really make the difference to family holidays.Like Free Sky Movies and Sky Sports, and the pool being so enjoyably empty most of the time. I agree that the pictures don't do the house justice and this means that guests are pleasantly surprised rather than disappointed when they arrive. We are delighted that all of our reviews are top rated.

Vilamoura is a friendly vibrant town with a lovely marina full of restaurants and bars. It is also the home of 6 golf courses namely Victoria, Old Course, Pinhal, Millenium, Laguna and Vila Sol. Our Villa overlooks the 10th hole of the Millenium Course and is about 800 yards from both the Millenium and Laguna clubhouses and 900 yards from the Victoria clubhouse. Vilamoura is only 25 min from Faro Airport which is regularly served by Easy Jet, Ryainair and Jet2. The villa is only a 4 min drive to the marina and taxi's are easily available. It is a very pleasant walk and would take around 30 minutes. There is a tourist road train which runs on a loop around the resort and costs 2 Euro. It passes at the end of our road about 400 yards away and runs every 25 minutes or so. This can be used to go to the marina or various beaches in and around the resort. We have the perfect blend of being away from the noise and hub tub of the marina but also being very accessible when required.

Golf: Millenium, Laguna, and Victoria only 900 yards away.

Pinhal and Old course about 4 minute drive.

Vila Sol about 10 min drive.

Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo about 25 min drive.

Faldo and O'Connor courses about 25 min drive.
