About Frankie Dunn (Mrs)

We are retired hoteliers from the UK. This has given us an in depth knowledge of what the service industry is all about. We live a three minute drive from our rental properties and this enables us to give a personal service to our guests.

Frankie Dunn (Mrs) purchased this house in 2007

Why Frankie Dunn (Mrs) chose Mexilhoeira Grande

Our villa overlooks the village where my rental properties are situated. We used to come to the Algarve for golfing holidays, and came to love the area and the Portuguese people.

What makes this house unique

I have nine grandchildren, so I am very used to the needs of our younger guests. I offer a free babysitting service on one evening during a booking to allow parents a romantic child free evening out.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just to say thanks you Frankie. We have had the wonderful holiday that we both needed.The sun shone all of the first week. It was a shame about the rain in the second week but we made up for it by driving to some beautiful places that we would not have seen if the sun had been shining. We will be back.

Amazing affordable and high quality property

  • 5 out of 5
We were so impressed with both the booking process and the quality of the villa. The pictures are very accurate although make the villa look a little smaller than it's actual size! On arrival, Frankie (the owner) greeted us, and was very friendly. She gave us a quick tour and showed us some essentials and goodies she had left in the fridge - very kind.
The villa itself is such good value for money and of a very high quality. The complex it is situated in feels very exclusive and is beautifully peaceful. We spent many a happy night out on the terrace eating and by the pool during the day.
While in Portugal we didn't hire a car, as it was very expensive for a group of our size and age (all 19 or 20). We found Yellowfish Transfers excellent to transfer from Faro Airport and used Lagos Central Taxis/Taxiarade while at the villa. Both companies were excellent, although on the first day it was a little hard explaining the position of the villa to drivers. This was no issue on subsequent days as we called the personal number of the lady at Lagos Central Taxis, who promptly came and picked us up. Both taxi services were very reasonable - costing about €15 for a group of 6 to travel to Lagos - under €3 each!
Excursions we particularly enjoyed included the Meia Praia in Lagos, with lunch at Linda's beach bar, watersports in Luz (very affordable and fun), Slide and Splash waterpark and nights out in Praia da Rocha and Lagos. We thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend the Three Monkeys Bar in Lagos - it was a great, fun place with amazing bar staff and a young clientele.
All in all, we would have no hesitation in returning to the villa/the Algarve. It was an amazing find and we are very grateful to Frankie for all her help and advice.

Excellent, extremely comfortable

  • 5 out of 5
This holiday was one of the best we have been on, the villa with Wi Fi and a four star feel about it, Frankie left all the essentials needed for a great stay, it is close to the beaches and to the local town,there is a local restaurant in walking distance where,if you have the daily special it will cost 7Euro's each for a three course meal with wine. This villa is ideal for families and couples, even at the height of the season it was not busy and having the pool on the doorstep was fantastic. I can honestly say there is not one thing I did not enjoy about the villa.

Owner's Response: Many thanks to you both. I am very glad that you have had another good holiday with us. It is always good to see our guests return year after year, knowing that they feel that our properties are "a home away from home" for them. I look forward to seeing you again in the Spring. Kindest regards Frankie

Eine tolle Villa- ein toller Urlaub

  • 5 out of 5
Wir verbrachten zwei herrliche Wochen im Casa Mimosa. Die Villa ist super ausgestattet, mit allem was man so braucht, der Pool ist toll, die Lage super. Man ist schnell in Lagos und man kann viele kleine Ausflüge in der Umgebung machen.
Frankies, Willkommenspaket war toll und sie stand mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Das Restaurant um die Ecke, bietet tolles, frisches Essen (vor allem frischen gegrillten Fisch!!!) und das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist super. Alles in Allem ein erholsamer, toller Urlaub. Wir planen bereits eine Wiederholung!!!
Danke für Alles, Frankie,
Anja und Jürgen

Owner's Response: Hi, thank you very much for your kind comments. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday with us and that you would like to return. Has Elias allowed you to take his Portuguese football kit off long enough for you to wash it? You are a lovely family and I hope that you felt that Casa Mimosa was a home away from home. I look forward to your next visit. Kindest regards Frankie
