About Malcolm & Marion Townend

We are a young at heart, retired couple who just love being in Portugal.

Malcolm & Marion Townend purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Malcolm & Marion Townend chose Luz

We came to Portugal for the first time in 2001 and went away owning our own apartment. The most expensive holiday we have ever had but we have never regretted it.

We never tire of the sea view from our balcony and the friendliness and diversity of the village.

What makes this apartment unique

We understand the trepidation some travellers may experience when making the transition from 'package holidays' to arranging your own holiday accommodation. We try to make this as easy as possible for you by being as helpful as we can.

Praia da Luz is central to everything that you would ever want or need from a holiday.

The heated swimming pool with surrounding sun beds set in a garden environment is so relaxing you will not want to go home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Malcolm and Marion's superbly equipped apartment in the beach resort of Praia de Luz was truly a home from home. Our balcony had a sea view and overlooked the pool which we had pretty much to ourselves most of our stay. Praia de Luz is lovely, wonderful beach within a few minutes walk of the apartment and also local restaurants and supermarket. Nearby Lagos offered more restaurants and trips, a really lovely part of Portugal and an area we would love to visit again. We kept in touch with M&M and found them extremely helpful, friendly and good hosts.

Fabulous

  • 5 out of 5
The location is fabulous, the apartment is fabulous and Malcolm and Marion's presentation of the apartment, its cleanliness and its facilities is second to none. While centrally located in Luz, the apartment is away from the hub hub and has plenty of pool space in which to relax and soak up the sun and tranquility. The pool and its surrounding are very well looked after. This apartment is an ideal base from which to explore the wonders and the beauty of the Algarve and we cannot recommend it more strongly. You will not be disappointed.

Clean,comfortable and perfect location!

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a 10 day stay and had a lovely, relaxing holiday. This is our 4th visit to Praia da Luz and this apartment was immaculate, the most comfortable and in the best location by far. The real plus for us is that the bed was extremely comfortable and meant that niether of us had our usual 'holiday backache!'...a real bonus.
The resort has everything that you need on site, good restaurants, lovely sandy beach, clean pool and adequate shops. Although we had a hire car it was not vital and you could have a very enjoyable time staying at the resort. All in all a perfect, sunny, relaxing holiday and we would thoroughly recommend staying at this apartment.

Wonderful Holiday Experience

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed in Luz on many occasions, stopping in a variety of apartments/villas and this was easily the best place we have stayed in.

We booked this wonderful apartment directly on the internet and the whole process was made effortless by Malcolm and Marion who were very efficient in responding to our queries and questions.

On arriving were very pleased to see that the apartment was exactly as described and more....it was very well maintained and spotlessly clean. We spent two weeks in the apartment and the place was literally "home from home". From the large and comfy bedrooms to the well stocked kitchen, the entire apartment had everything to meet our needs for a very relaxing holiday.

The apartment is set in the small Cristaluz complex and we spent many hours relaxing around the quiet pool area with sunbeds being available at all times during the day.

It's location was ideal as it is only two minutes walk from the main supermarket in Luz and five minutes to the beach. Luz is a small resort with wonderful restaurants and all of them are within walking distance from the apartment. We did spend a couple of evenings in the apartment cooking our own meals and it was a great experience to sit on the spacious balcony enjoying the views with a few glasses of wine.

The entire holiday was faultless from start to finish. Many thanks to Malcolm and Marion who provided us with a wonderful holiday experience - we will certainly be returning again!

Holiday of a life time

  • 5 out of 5
This was the first time we have ventured abroad with our children who are 15 and 11 Malcolm and Marion made the whole experience easy, booking, paying, and planning our holiday. When we arrived the apartment had every thing we needed and more, it was a beautiful clean welcoming apartment and we felt at home, Malcolm and Marion were very helpful and friendly, and they maintain the apartment to a high standard. We enjoyed a lot of activities locally, from the beach we enjoyed all number of water activities, then a grotto and snorkelling boat trip from Logos, Slip and Slide water park a short drive away, but the highlight was the Dolphin Watching trip from the Beach Hut on the beach, it was fantastic and will live with us forever. In the evening we would eat locally, there are many restaurants to choose from, or we would also cook our own meals, the supermarket is very near by and the cooking facilities in the apartment were all you would need and more.
In between all the activities we really enjoyed relaxing by the pool reading a book while our children played in the pool.
I would recommend Malcolm and Marion’s apartment to any one it was a fantastic holiday
Thank you very much Malcolm and Marion for sharing your wonderful apartment with us
