Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed here one week during July 2013 and were very happy with the apartment, the location and the host! The apartment is big. modern and airy with close proximity to the beach (around 10 mins walk). The swimmingpool is just outside the apartment, making it all very easy to enjoy. There are a couple of restaurants and grocery stores nearby as well. Parking is easy and is just in front of the building complex.
Custódia and Rui are great hosts and always prepared to help with any queries you might have - our flight got delayed and they still stayed at the apartment until 2.30 AM when we arrived...
For us this was a great home away from home and we give our warmest recommendations.
