                                                              Lovely apartment, lovely setting

                                                              We have stayed in Alvor before a few times in larger hotels. However, we decided to try renting a private apartment, this apartment did not disappoint. We found the apartment through the HomeAway website, Chris was quick to respond and luckily for us our week was available for rental. This was a first time rental for the owners so we were the first people in the apartment. When we arrived in Alvor we were met and given keys and a tour of the apartment. Straight away we could see how Very clean, tidy and modern the apartment was...i am very particular with cleanliness!! It was light, airy and very spacious for the 5 of us, myself, husband 2 yr old daughter and grandparents. We had a lovely view of the pool from the spacious balcony. The complex is situated perfectly for both the beach and the town. Not too far to walk and this is with a pram! The complex was clean and well maintained (apart from however be aware of the lifts breaking down! we got some exercise i suppose walking up and down the stairs). We would not hesitate to come back to this apartment. We really enjoyed our stay both in Alvor and the Apartment.

                                                              Excelllent in every way, had a fantastic .

                                                              The apartment was very well presented, spotlessly clean and located ideally for a family within the complex. Air-conditioning was well maintained and worked without fault (I found this to be a problem in the past). the location of the complex was brilliant, enough out of the way but a 5 minute stroll to all the beach, restaurants and bars (I would recommend booking the terraces for eating, it can be difficult to get a table without booking and they are very good). All in all one of the best accommodations I have stayed in and would suit couples or families. Lastly and most importantly the lady looking after us in the apartment on behalf of the owners (Bernadette) was absolutely brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and she really looked after us which got our holiday off the starting blocks very quickly. GIVE IT A GO BUT LEAVE ME TWO WEEKS OVER NEXT SUMMER ! Kieron and girls.

                                                              The Bird's Nest is perfect!

                                                              Our 2 families stayed at The Bird's Nest for 7 days. It accommodated 9 of us beautifully. It is modern and so well laid out - we had so much space for the nine of us. It has everything you require to cook, clean, relax, etc. It has 4 great outside spaces as well. It is so well-situated within Alvor - you can easily walk to a restaurants, pubs, the beach or the markets. The owners are helpful and very responsive and if you have any questions during your stay Sonia is readily available to help. I can highly recommend The Bird's Nest. We are already discussing returning next summer.
