Spacious, comfortable villa
This villa is very large with lots of communal areas for everyone to relax in. The kitchen is large and equipped with two fridges - we used one for food, one for drinks. We enjoyed the pool and it was large enough for several adults to swim simultaneously. It was lovely sitting on the loungers round the pool and we used the BBQ too. A choice of beaches within walking distance. The villa is situated in a quiet area which is not overcrowded with tourists yet close enough to Albufeira for shopping/entertainment - a definite bonus. At times, there was noise from the hotel (behind the wall) but this did not spoil our stay. We had rented cars and this made shopping at Lidl easy. The villa was very clean and all furnishings in very good condition. Thanks
Perfect Outdoor Area, Less Perfect Indoors
First of all, I have to say that Lina was excellent! She was so quick to respond to any questions/issues, and tried to be as helpful as possible. I will say the house itself though fell short of expectations. The outdoors area was perfect - beautiful pool, great space for a group to sit outside together. However, the inside area fell short of expectations. While there was plenty of room, the house was not well stocked at all. There was not enough toilet paper for the group, garbage cans in rooms like bathrooms were MIA, some bathrooms were missing hand soap, towels provided were minimal, there was no laundry detergent left for use with the washing machine (usually houses provided that), and the kitchen smelled like sulfur upon entering the house. I was very disappointed at how poorly the house was stocked for even the most basic of supplies for our stay. In addition, some of the sheets were stained, and some of the appliances were broken, such as the shower head in the master bathroom. The house was not in the shape I would have expected. That being said, Lina was excellent at addressing many of these concerns - she sent someone over to provide more towels, change the stained sheets, and fix the shower head. So in terms of customer service, Lina was EXCELLENT. But overall the house fell a bit short of expectations.
Thanks for your comment.
The house must has what the people need when they arrive not all they need for the holidays. You can see in the homeaway what the house has. The beach towels must be required and payed. But I never solicited the money when the guest needs that.
I am very unhappy about what happened with some problems about the maintenance of the house. It never can happen. I think that the housekeeper resolved that quickly. The checkin was at 4 pm and she did the better that she could after the others guests left the villa for you could get in early.
The region of Albufeira has a problem with sewage because when are wind sometimes the smell can be felt in the house and like you said me it became better. The problem is not with the house and it happens only sometimes and not every years. I have already notified the competent authorities to make a revision of the sewers in the street where the house is located.
I hope you have had excellent days in S. Rafael despite everything because it is a beautiful beach.
Villa is beautiful, extremely clean and very spacious. We took 3 adults with learning disabilities plus 4 Support Workers. It provided the perfect base for us so have now returned 2 years in a row. Beautiful swimming pool. Great built in BBQ and lots of outdoor seating surrounding the villa. Restaurants around corner. Near to beaches and easy to get into Old Town, Albufeira for more choice of restaurants and shops. Extremely friendly and helpful villa host Lina.
Lovely gift of food and wine for a light meal when we arrived after a long journey. Would absolutely stay again and highly recommend. Thank you.
Thanks very much for your kind words. It was a pleasure to receive you in my house and it is so good to know that you liked Sao Rafael and Albufeira. I hope see you again in the future.
AMAMOS COMO SEMPRE
Muito obrigada pelo seu simpático comentário.
É ótimo ter na nossa casa hóspedes que aqui se sentem bem e que partilham essa experiência.
Prachtige, ruime villa
Met 10 man in totaal 10 dagen in deze villa mogen verblijven. De villa was bij aankomst erg schoon en goed onderhouden. De villa is echt prachtig en de tuin met zwembad is erg mooi. De omgeving is rustig met een erg mooi strandje in de buurt. Wel ligt de villa dus in een buitenstadje van Albufeira, maar taxi's reden af en aan waardoor ook Albufeira zelf goed breikbaar was. Vooraf en tijdens het verblijf was de eigenaar goed bereikbaar en vriendelijk. Het enige nadeel van de vakantie was dat op dag 2 de schoonmaakploeg al langs kwam, waardoor de schoonmaak nog niet echt nodig was en later tijdens het verblijf eigenlijk wel. Al met al een uitstekend verblijf gehad.
Velfungerende hus med grei beliggenhet. Veldig bra uteområde.
Norsk familie som hadde en flott ferie i dette huset. Fin beliggenhet, men uten bil må man belage seg på å gå en del. Veldig hjelpsom og hyggelig eier. Hagen og bassenget ble svært mye brukt og var godt likt av ungdommene i familien. Vi kommer gjerne tilbake til dette huset.
