About the property

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 all ensuite, 4 bathroom town house with marble and wooden floors throughout in an ideal location in Vilamoura.

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.

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.

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

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!

Beautiful Villa very well equiped

  • 5 of 5

We loved Alfie's villa. The house is pristine and looks much better in real life than in pictures. We had plenty of room for our family of 6 adults and two toddlers. The pool is huge and really quiet and we found getting to the marina very straightforward despite not renting a car. We usually took and uber and it was around 4 euro per trip. Really highly reccomend this villa!

Very clean exactly what was advertised. Nothing disappointed

  • 5 of 5

Alfie was extremely helpful. From booking to after we got home nothing was a bother for him. His helpful hints helped us get to the villa without getting lost (a first). The house is lovely everything you need is provided. His recommendations for things to do restaurants and taxis etc were invaluable. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Clean modern well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 of us adults, a 14 yr old boy and 2 girls aged 7 and 10 who stayed in the apartment. The apartment was well split for 2 families to stay without trampling on each other and gave us all the necessary privacy. The owner Alfie gave us a list of helpful hints which covered everything we needed to know and recommended a taxi company run by Nuno who was a godsend. It was cheaper for us all to travel together to the Marina each night by one of his mini buses than to travel by bus. The apartment was exceptionally clean and well equipped and the pool was used almost exclusively by our 2 families. The security was excellent and made it easier to let the girls go out to the pool without worrying. Alfie was very accommodating with our arrival and checkout times and was a pleasure to deal with. All in all it was just like home from home but with added extras. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and it's owner. We will definitely return here, wonderful holiday fantastic weather and an apartment that made our stay even more of a pleasure - thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your apartment Alfie.

We were a family of 6 staying at Alfie's house. Two adults and four teenagers. The three older teenagers took over the basement and myself, husband and 13 year old daughter took the first floor accommodation. Loads of space for us to spread out and three showers for us to use - great when we came back from the beach late and then off to dinner all within an hour of arriving back. Everywhere was all very clean and tidy. Pool area was clean and the kids had a great time with the pool as it was available to use until 11pm at night. Kitchen was well equipped which we used for four nights out of the seven. Plenty of sunbeds for our use and our teenage boys enjoyed the Sky Sports as the football season had just started and the wifi was essential for the teenagers! Alfie was very helpful and produced a very comprehensive guide to accessing the property, amenities, restaurant guide and taxi information which proved invaluable. Special thanks to Katrina for sorting out taxis for us at very short notice and speaking impeccable English! Alfie always responded very quickly and was helpful with car hire. We love Portugal as in August the heat is bearable with a wonderful breeze so is just right for us and what more could you ask for with blue skies everyday! This villa is about a 10 minute drive from the marina which was fine for us as we didn't want to have any noise at night. It is about a 45 minute walk which is a little far in the heat but we had a car and also used the taxis which cost 10 euros each way. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Thank you.

Excellent 2 week stay!

  • 5 of 5

Alfie's villa was superb! It had everything we needed for a 2 week stay and was extremely clean. The area felt very safe which was reassuring. The children loved the pool also which was quiet on majority of days! It was a little bit further out from Marina than I expected but still only €8 in a taxi. Also thanks to Alfie for all the recommendations on restaurants! We hope to return!

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.
