Snippets from a few Reviews.....

'Ann and Christy, many thanks for providing us with a first class apartment. We enjoyed our first week so much, we, as you well know contacted you and extended our stay to nearly three weeks....... We will be using your apartment in the future as it is one of the best we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in lots. Thanks again hope to speak again soon.' Bob & Sue.

Hi Ann and Christy, Just a quick email to let you know, we just had by far the loveliest holiday in your apartment. I envy you owning a place like that. We were there for 10 days. And, it was the one holiday we would have been quiet happy to have stayed there longer, if not forever...... We have been booking apartments off the net now for a good few years and yours has been so far the best ever.' B&J

I am a primary teacher and my husband, Christopher, is a haulier involved in furniture distribution. We first visited the Algarve on our honeymoon in 1984. We fell in love with the place and the people so we returned as often as we could during the following years. When we decided to invest in a holiday home, the Algarve was the obvious choice.

Christopher & Ann purchased this apartment in 2004

We chose Vilamoura because it is so close to Faro airport, around 20 mins. Also, Vilamoura is a vibrant resort and always lively, even in low season. It's a popular destination for tourists of all nationalities as well as golfers, boating and water sports enthusiasts.

The location of the apartment in the upmarket area of Terracos do Pinhal is ideal. The area is favoured by families and couples of all ages as well as golfing groups and is a haven of peace and tranquility, but still just a short distance from the centre of town. Younger, larger groups are more inclined to stay around the Marina area where things can get lively at night!

The apartment complex itself is gated and secure so we always feel safe when we are there. We have made many good friends over the years, mostly Irish, English and Scottish, although the Portuguese owners and guests are also very friendly. We always look forward to returning each year to meet up with old friends and maybe make some new ones. It's great to sit by the pool chatting with the neighbours and see the children all playing together, whether they speak the same language or not. It seems they all understand the language of fun!

When looking for an apartment, one thing that was a 'must have' was a ground floor property with a large outdoor space for barbecuing, entertaining and just enjoying being outdoors. Although we looked at many properties, as soon as we stepped out onto the terrace of this one it immediately felt right.

I remember hunkering down along the wall of the terrace and imagining myself sitting on a sofa swing. As I looked across the gardens and pool to the fabulous view beyond I knew that we had finally found our new holiday home.

One of the first things we bought was a sofa swing which, 8 years later, is still one of my favourite places in the world! The terrace is south facing so it gets the sun all day and although it is just a few metres to the pool, it's still quite private. It means that sun worshippers have the choice of lounging by the pool, having a chat with the neighbours, while keeping an eye on the kids or, if they prefer to relax and read or snooze, they can make use of the sunbeds on the terrace. Very convenient if a cold drink from the fridge is required or maybe an ice-cream from the freezer?

The addition of Wifi in 2007 proved invaluable. It means that guests can keep up to date with business and family while away and also the teenagers are kept happy! The Sky TV package is also great when you just want a quiet night in after a day out at the beach or sightseeing.

5 Hi Ann
I thought I really must drop you a line to say a big thank you as we really did enjoy staying at your apartment, all of the facilities have been very well thought out and are of a very high standard. We made good use of the gas BBQ and spent most evenings sitting on the swing, chatting and drinking wine once the children were in bed. We ate in most nights and so were very pleased with the well fitted kitchen, especially the dishwasher! We had a very enjoyable holiday and we would definitely recommend staying at your apartment, not only due to the excellent facilities, but the good communication between us regarding the access of the apartment (for my wheelchair) and arranging collection at the airport in a minibus. Many thanks again, K.T. (June 2007.) Hi ! I would like to thank you for the facilities you made for us during our stay in Vilamoura. We appreciated the apartment and the surrounding area and we had a wonderful time there. Ahmed F. Morocco

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would have no problem
recommending the property or area. The apartment had everything we needed & indeed could be described as "a home away from home" Everything we needed to know was explained very well. However I would recommend possibly hiring a car as the taxi service in Villamoura is very slow.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! It is indeed our 'home away from home' and we take great pleasure in sharing it with our guests. Glad you and your family enjoyed your stay.

We have always found the taxi service to be very efficient and reasonably priced in Vilamoura. We use 'Nuno's' taxi firm who are extremely reliable and helpful and always on time. But I see your stay was in August. This is the busiest time of the year in Vilamoura as it is the Portuguese annual holidays and the Algarve seems to be their prime destination! I can understand why the taxis would be under pressure then.

We would regularly accommodate parties who don't hire a car (including some of my family) and if they didn't fancy walking, they would use taxis, the local bus and even our public bikes to get around with no problems at all. I think you were just unlucky to have been there at such a busy time.

Thanks again for taking the time to post a review. Much appreciated. We would love to accommodate you all again some time.

Best wishes
Ann & Christopher

We stay in this apartment for two weeks every summer (we've lost count of the years). My workmates think I own a property in Portugal (I wish). If I did, I'd like to think it would be an apartment of this standard!

We stayed at the apartment for 10 days in May - myself, husband, 3 year old daughter and 1 year old son. It was ideal for our needs. A travel cot and high chair were provided. 2 bathrooms made bath-times manageable. The lounge, garden area and pool were great and always quiet. The kitchen was very well equiped and it was a lifesaver to be able to pre-order groceries for our arrival. Great to have home comforts like wireless and Sky TV when we chose to use them. Vilamoura Marina was lovely and we were within easy access of loads of beaches, markets and eating-out areas. We also made good use of the gas barbeque at the apartment, and outdoor furniture. The kids loved the swing sofa. Would highly recommend for families. Ann and Maria were very helpful and obliging.

We had a wonderful holiday in Ann's apartment which is a true home from home. Maria, the local lady who oversees everything went beyond the call of duty and was extremely helpful.

Lovely apartment, everything we could possibly need and more thoughtfully supplied, clean pool, would definately go again.Free wi fi kept our teenage sons happy!
Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review our holiday home, Claire. Yes, having a teenager myself, I know how they love their Wifi! I'll pass on your comments to Maria form Golfinho Servicos. It's reassuring to know that our guests are always well looked after. Best wishes, Ann & Christy.

Vilamoura is a premier resort on the magnificent Algarve coast, famous for its bustling marina, its golden beaches and its superb golf courses as well as its shops, bars, restaurants and casino. Nearby amenities include water parks, Zoomarine aquarium and marine park and the largest offer of facilities and activities of any resort in Portugal. Vilamoura also embraces a vast wetland area, extremely rich in plant and bird life and close to the marina is the site of an old Roman villa. It is situated just 20 minutes drive from Faro airport. (Airport transfers arranged on request.) While car hire is recommended, it is by no means essential. There is an excellent local bus service with a stop nearby. The bus route services the Vilamoura area (including supermarket and Marina), as well as local towns and villages, e.g. Quarteira, Faro and Albufeira. The local taxis are also reliable and cheap. Free use of two public bikes also provided.

Other Activities: Dolphin-watching, mini-golf, bowls, karting, casino, jogging circuits, quad biking, walking groups. Shooting and scuba diving clubs-beginners welcome.

Vilamoura is renowned for its world class golf courses. There are six courses within a few minutes from the apartment, some within walking distance.
