About The Owner

When you live in Canada, you need to be chasing the sun at any opportunity.

Portugal is one of the handful of countries I really enjoy spending some time every year.

The choice of Portugal fits with all of the attributes I look for in an holiday abroad such as being friendly, safe and modern in addition to being affordable with good weather and food. Culture, history and beauty are other factors I consider.

I like it so much that I have purchased accommodations for myself when visiting and to make them available to other visitors for the remainder of the year.

Quarteira (Search Property Ref:P8522) and Vilamoura (Search Property Ref:P14562) in central Algarve were chosen due to its proximity to the airport and the highways heading to Lisbon and its great beaches and surroundi

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008

Why The Owner chose Quarteira

As I mentioned above, Portugal is one of a handful of countries that our family choose to spend part of the year. Quarteira is the location of one of the residences I stay when visiting this beautiful country in the Winter months. I like its simplicity, convenience and location. With supermarkets and the daily fish and vegetable market very close by and the peaceful but colorful environment created by all the foreigners spending part of their winter there.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, convenience and comfort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you so much for the few days spent in your apartment - everything went very smoothly and we had a great time in the Algarve - thanks again". J. Neves, S. Africa October 2012



"We really enjoyed our time in your accommodation. It is very conveniently located and was very suitable for our needs. Although it was cloudy and wet for some of the time we were able to have a really good break and came home feeling refreshed. We enjoyed many long walks .

We would be very happy to recommend your apartment - entrance not great looking but inside made up for it". J. Peden, UK October 2012

Ideal Apartment & Location

  • 5 of 5

Dear Ray, I had a wonderful week in Portugal and thank you for the use of your apartment. It was perfect for my needs, spotlessly clean and with every conceivable piece of household equipment anyone would ever need. Being so centrally located made things even easier for me than I expected and with the bus station so close it was simple for me to get around most of the Algarve by bus. I especially appreciated the free fast reliable broadband connection for keeping in touch with home. All in all, I had a great relaxing week in very nice surroundings and nice warm weather. Once again than you for the use of your apartment.

Super spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

I have recently spent 11 weeks in this lovely light modern apartment, it as everything you would need for a great holiday.

The location is ideal just metres from the wonderful prom, beach, cafes and bars, the supermarket and bakery are almost next door very handy for your bread and pastries.

My advice unless you are on a golfing holiday would be to make Quarteira your base and walk (about a mile) or get the 75cents bus to Vilamoura the neighbouring resort which is said to be more upmarket and its prices reflect this especially around the Marina (which is beautiful). There is a Hotel on the beach in Quarteira where you can enjoy a glass of wine for 2.50€ which for a Hotel I thank is amazing value.

I am hoping that I shall be fortunate to return next

winter, thank you Ray

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was stunning, totally spotless, modern and funky and has everything you would ever need. It has a lovely kitchenette and two separate "dining areas", comfy couches, Wi-Fi and TV, plenty pots/pans/crockery etc, a super comfy bed and a great shower!

It is situated above a supermarket, next to a chemist and surrounded on all sides by great shops, bars and restaurants and takes less than a minute to walk to the beach!

I would highly recommend this apartment to friends and family - I'll certainly be back next year.

While you're there, you must really pop in to Pic-Nic restaurant along the promenade, the waiters were great, food fantastic and the wine was sensational.

Ray, thank you for allowing me to rent your apartment, it made a great holiday even better.

Kindest Regards

Joanne

Owner's Response: Thank you Joanne, It's a very nice review. I am happy you had a good time. I heard the weather was still nice. Pic-Nic Restaurant is a great choice. The food is very good. There is a large selection of restaurants in the immediate area and good food and wine is a fact of life in Portugal mainly for seafood lovers. I will be looking forward to your next visit. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a joyful 2015, I thank you for your kind words. Ray

Ideally located modern apartment

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this ideally located central apartment from 21st June for 10 days and had a most pleasant stay. The apartment is situated in the heart of Quarteira and is central to; Beach/banks/shops/carparking/supermarket/pharmacy./restaurants.. all at the doorstep. I would highly recommend this apartment to couples but unfortunately not for children as windows are easily opened and there is no balcony or ledge... but apart from this first class. Thank you Ray and Odett ( who met us rather late on our arrival)
