1. Surrounding Area

Spacious villa with swimming pool, air conditioning, Wi-Fi and games room, enjoying an elevated location with beautiful views to the marina, in a peaceful housing estate, between the well known São Rafael beach with beach bar/restaurant and the colourful Marina of Albufeira, with shops, cafes and restaurants.

To the West, and within a very short drive (5 min.) one can find some of the Algarve's best beaches, like Galé, Salgados, Evaristo, São Lourenço, just to name a few, the Salgados Golf Course and Nature Reserve (with walkway - great for bird watching), a quality supermarket and a variety of restaurants, one with 2 Michelin Stars. All beaches have bars/restaurants, serving delicious meals during the holiday season.

The town centre, located 5 km East of the villa, with shopping centre and its picturesque old town along the sandy Fishermen's beach (also accessible through an elevator) offers an abundance of shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and live shows during the holiday season.

The charming village of Guia, with several restaurants specialising in Chicken Piri-Piri (chicken with spicy sauce), banks and cake shops is just a 5 min drive away. Just outside Guia you will find Zoomarine, an aquarium with dolphin show (great for kids) and the second largest shopping centre in the region, with many shops, restaurants, cinema and a hypermarket.

For a great family day out, there is also a choice of water parks, karting track and a zoo with mini golf.

Great location and villa for super family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Villa was clean, large and very comfortable. Good facilities - both in kitchen appliances/utensils and recreation. Kaiser properties (local agents) were very helpful and efficient when we had a problem with the toaster and oven (fixed immediately). Good wi-fi, flat screen TV (updated since the photo was taken). Air con in the 4 main bedrooms was brilliant - need a fan if using the extra 5th bedroom upstairs. Swimming pool area great - superb views towards the marina. Only drawback is that as the villa is on the ridge it can be a bit windy at times - so watch umbrellas, airbeds etc if left out!!!

We didn't hire a car we used taxis which were very reasonable but as it was July they weren't always around when you wanted one (Tip - if using taxis try to book in advance and state times for pick up - when we did that they worked well). There were 8 of us in our party ranging from 26yrs to 57yrs and we had a brilliant holiday, The location meant we could walk to the marina (20mins) the beach (15mins) local bar (5 mins) Albufiera (40mins) or stay in and play table football/ pool tournaments - all tastes catered for and we had some brilliant barbecues. I was a little worried when booking as I'm used to booking package holidays (ABTA) but everything was fine - flights, transfers, villa and service received. The breakage deposit was refunded virtually immediately on our return. We were very happy with our holiday and would definitely recommend the villa - in fact we may well return next year.

Villa Sunny

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic week at Villa Sunny. There were ten of us in total 6 adults and 4 children, ages from 9-13. Villas was spacious, clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Is located overlooking the marina which is about a 15 minute walk and has a number of bars and restaurants. Nearest supermarket (which has a bakery) is approx, 10 minute walk although we used to get a taxi to the larger one in Albufeira to stock up. We didn't hire a car as stayed local to the villa all week, we arranged taxi transfer directly though HomeAway and service as excellent. The driver stopped off at lettings office and picked up the key for us on the way and returned it for us on the way back. The service we received during the whole booking process was excellent as was the service provided in resort. If we return to Portugal again, will definitely use HomeAway again.

Great villa, great location, great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa with superb pool area. We really enjoyed our stay in this villa. The area is very calm but not isolated, close to the beach and Albufeira old town and marina. Loved the basement with poo table. Would recommend this villa to everyone looking to spend a nice holiday in the Algarve.

Unforgettable Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvellous time in this villa. Booking process was very easy, directions were accurate and key collection ran smoothly. Local services were excellent.

We specially enjoyed the spacious pool area (a real sun trap) with barbecue, outside dining area and nice views. Kids (and adults) loved the games room. The villa is very spacious so even being a party a party of 9 we never felt like sitting on top of each other.

Albufeira town and the beach and nearby.

We absolutely loved it and hope to be back soon.

Sao Rafael Luxury villa

  • 4 of 5

Just back from 12 night stay in Villa Sunny. House was exactly as described and what you see in the pictures is what you get. We consisted of two families with five children under 5, the house comfortably fitted us all and the children especially liked the games room in the basement. The house is in an elevated position so has great views all around. The cleaner came twice a week and ensured the house was cleaned to a high standard. We didn't hire a car even though it is recommended which meant quite a bit of walking the first week we were there before we started to rely on the excellent taxi service. Sao Rafael beach is a 15-20 minute walk downhill with just the one restaurant down there. Albufiera marina is roughly the same timeframe of a walk, there are several restaurants there and a few things for the kids to do. We went into the old town in Albufiera several times for a greater variety of restaurants. There is a chinese restaurant, portuguese restaurant and a bar within a 8 minute walk from the villa. There are also two hotels that we didn't eat in, one is Maritor which I would not recommend anyone to go into as the staff and management were very rude to us on the two occasions we went in. The first time we were waiting on a taxi outside and the manager came out and lied about the taxi ringing and him telling it that there was nobody waiting and then told us to wait outside on the street. The second time we asked them to ring a taxi for us and we offered to pay but we were refused, we went to the next hotel called CS Sao Rafael and they were very obliging and hotel looked very nice. Another place nearby that I highly recommend is Scoobys bar, its a 3 km walk from the villa but they offer a free shuttle bus service to your villa and back. Staff are very friendly and they have playground, crazy golf and swimming pool there. We also went to Zoomarine while we were there, it was good but a bit expensive for what you get to see, Dolphin show is worth seeing though.

Overall I would recommend this house but probably not for families with toddlers like us as there were a number of ornaments around the house, a glass table between the two bedrooms upstairs, a spiralling staircase that was a bit dangerous for our toddlers and the pool gets quite deep very quickly. It would be ideal for families with children over 7 that didnt mind a few walks if you didn't want to hire a car. It was our first time booking direct and I will be doing so again in the future.
