Was it bait-and-switch?

  • 2 of 5

A month before arrival, we booked the beautiful place shown here in the center of Faro (being in the center was critically important to us). BUT .... just before we arrived Pedro told us that there had been a booking error and he needed to put us in a nearby cottage. Pedro was charming and undoubtedly meant well. However, the cottage was not quite finished with its renovations and outside the center of the city. He contributed to our car-rental cost (to somewhat compensate for the inconvenience) but a-not-quite-finshd-space just was not what we contracted for.

Great place to stay in Faro

  • 5 of 5

Great location, a house placed in a nice and interesting neighborhood, close to the historical center of Faro. Pedro was a great host and recommended us the best restaurant nearby. I wish we could stay a couple of weeks longer. Looking forward to coming back!

Paid Rental Rented to Someone Else

  • 1 of 5

While it is possible that this owner is well meaning, it is unacceptable to find a paid and confirmed apartment rented to someone else 24 hr.s before scheduled arrival. Although the credit card company will get our money back. It should have been returned immediately. This was our first bad experience with vrbo after numerous good ones.

Nice Space, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

It took us a while to realize what a great location the house is in. Our GPS brought us in the worst way and it was only after exploring Faro on foot that we could appreciate where we were. The house is very close to Old Town with some superb restaurants and the shopping district. We used the house as the base for exploring Faro as well as the Algarve and it was a perfect location for that. We also loved that just next door was a cafe that was very popular with the locals and where we ended up have our breakfast every morning that we were in Faro. We also had several dinners that were, in our opinion, among the best in our entire stay in Portugal. There were a few unfinished details in the house, but that didn't bother us and the outdoor spaces were awesome for just relaxing. Overall, we greatly enjoyed our stay!

Agree with everything in the previous post!

  • 5 of 5

In fact, we did most of the same things on our vacation! Great base to branch out from. Pedro was very accommodating.

The house would not be suitable for young children due to the open stairway but we have no complaints at all.

Portugal was lovely, hope to return someday.

A geat base for a stay in Faro

  • 4 of 5

The house made an imaginative base for access to various Faro locations such as the University, the old city and for exploring the surrounding countryside and other villages. The accomodation felt very light and airy with unique modern architecture, especially the open plan staircase and light wells. We stayed here for three weeks while on "workation" and the useful wireless internet facilitated a good place from which to work remotely. Having a washing machine and clothes drying locations was invaluable as no-one can travel with three weeks worth of clothing! Some features of the building were not complete and some fittings and fixtures were at times unreliable but never-the-less we got by. No doubt these will be easily fixed by the owner in the near future. The nearby take-away BBQ chicken shop surprisingly cooked the best take-away roast chicken ever, while a cafe just a few doors away provides a good opportunity for getting to know the locals. There was a mini supermarket and bakery close by for daily groceries and more. The old city was a few minutes walk away, full of interesting nooks and crannies, restaurants and churches. We loved the storks that seem to occupy any elevated flat surface with their huge nests, and at the weekend, the bells from the Carmo church chime reassuringly every quarter of an hour. As we were visiting during March and the weather was quite chilly, the owner Pedro provided firewood for the evenings. We weren't able to make the best use of the verandahs and outside furniture, but a bicycle at a small extra cost was useful for accessing the excellent local swimming pool and indoor food market. The area is interesting, lively on occasion and well lit at night, with a regular supply of visitors to the Carmo church by means of a city tour bus in the style of a train-on-wheels, that for a few euros will take you to see all the places of importance in this small city. For adventures further afield, the bus and train stations are nearby, and we recommend visits to the Ilha Desserta with the Animaris boat tour company (yellow sweatshirts) and to Tavira by train, where the walled castle garden is a true delight. If you are looking for a great little base while staying in Faro itself then we can recommend this house and know that you will receive a warm and friendly welcome from Pedro.
