Spacious villa with pool and great games room

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sarah was a lovely villa, well furnished with all the amenities anyone could want. The outside was spacious with plenty of seating and a lovely pool, but it was the games room that really proved to be the star of the show. We had a great week at the villa. There was a lovely (quiet) beach within a 10 minute walk and the restaurants and bars in the marina area were also within walking distance. Chris the owner was very helpful before and during our stay. Highly recommended.

Great villa with a great owner

  • 5 of 5

I was a bit apprehensive booking a villa but from day 1 my dealings with Chris, the owner, were excellent.

He always replied to emails speedily & sent a great supply of info about the booking & arrivals procedure & the others services he offered, private boat hire, shopping service etc.

Chris arranged our transfer & We had some hiccups on arrival but was met by Arine at the villa who was wonderful & gave us a lift down to the local Supermarket (Pingo Doce) to get supplies.

We were a party of 10 & the villa was excellent for us, lots of room to find a quiet corner if needed, great air conditioning in the bedrooms & a very clean pool. The pool at Casa Sarah is smaller than that at Casa Maurice but was plenty for all of us to play.

The villa is about a 5 min walk to a little shop but about 15 to Pingo Doce and along part of the road there is no pavement so is a little dangerous so single file. Also we never walked back up at night as there is one steep bit & no lighting so get a cab..... which by the way are AWFUL !!!!!!! Getting a cab is like finding a unicorn, they have their own agenda & waited for up to 1 hour on 2 occasions.

Anyway, that aside I would recommend Casa Sarah in a heartbeat, well equipped & laid out, in very quiet surroundings and within a lovely garden.

Thank you once again Chris for the fuel for the fondue & everything else. We had a ball x

Owner's Response: I am delighted that the clients enjoyed Casa Sarah for their holiday and the booking process and assistance we provide throughout the stay was very well received. A holiday is a very special occasion for guests and can be daunting for them when going to a foreign destination as a large group. Just a word about local taxis they can be swamped during the very busy month of August. All in all I am delighted that these clients enjoyed a lovely holiday and found my accommodation to be thoroughly enjoyable.

Beautiful villa in fabulous setting

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sarah is a wonderful villa with every amenity you could ask for. It is in a secluded quiet location at the end of a cul de sac. The layout is ideal for families or friends sharing the villa, with enough room for everyone. It was superbly clean and modern and the kitchen even has 2 fridge freezers, so plenty of room to keep your drinks cold. The garden and pool area were immaculate,, with plenty of seating for sunbathing or outdoor dining.. The built in barbecue was of great use.. We met both the owner and the manager of the property whilst we were there and nothing was too much trouble.. We were there as a family group of 6 adults and 3 children under 5. I would recommend the villa to others , but the only negative was the location to both the beach and Lagos town. The nearest small supermarket is 0.5 mile and 10 minutes walk. The actual Marina is 1 mile and a good 20 mins walk, while the main square in Lagos with plenty of bars and restaurants is 1.3 miles and about 30 minutes. These distances are accurate as we walked there each day and my son in law had a special watch that measured distances , for his daily runs!!. The beach is a good 30 minutes walk. So if you have children or don't like walking then a car would be recommended as a must... Overall it was a very good holiday.

Owner's Response: It is always satisfying to hear that our guests thoroughly enjoy their stay at 'Casa Sarah', we delight in providing every amenity for our clients. It is particularly important that we provide quality equipment and furnishings throughout and give thought in catering for every family member from the youngest to the eldest.'Casa Sarah' is in an ideal location providing privacy and seclusion for complete relaxation and yet being close walking distance to the beach of Meai Praia, the Marina and the town centre. It is interesting to see that the guest above has unfortunately not discovered the short cuts available to the beach in particular, however, we have the solution and we are now providing a handout map to all guests when they check into the Villa, at the time of meeting our local property manager Dinis. The useful hand-out map enables guests to easily find the most convenient walking routes to the beach, shops and to the nearby Marina and town. For clarity on the Villas exact location please do ask me to send you a link to a useful google satelitte map which illustrates the propertys location to all amenities. I am always delighted to help you and to get your holiday visit off to the best possible start.

Beautiful Villa in a lovely town

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sarah is an amazing villa. It was still spacious even with 10 people, and the pool and garden are lovely.

Chris (the owner) was so helpful when we were booking our holiday, answering the smallest of questions very quickly.

The villa is about a 15 min walk from the marina and about 20 mins from the town. Lagos is a brillant town, with something for everyone.

I'd strongly recommend casa sarah to anyone.

We will definately be back!

Easter holiday at Casa Sarah

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent holiday at Casa Sarah, with 5 assorted teenagers.

Chris was very helpful and responded promptly to enquiries.

The house was an easy 40 minutes from Faro airport, though we should probably have used the satnav as I've forgotten how to follow written instructions.

The house is in a quiet cul-de-sac of similar properties, mostly second homes. The house easily accommodated us all with enough space for us all to do our own thing. I often had to remind the boys to emerge from the fun packed games room for some fresh air when the sun was out

They had great fun horsing around in the pool, and I was pleased we had asked for it to be heated, so they could still play in it in the evening and on rainy days.

The beach is wide and lovely, very clean and almost empty though there are a couple of discreet bars tucked away. It is only a 10 minute walk along an unmade road through a beautiful pasture. Most days there were great breakers for splashing in, but on one of the mill pond days we saw a school of dolphins playing about 30m from where the kids were swimming!

The back of the house opens onto a green open space with fantastic birdlife, and the houses on the other side feel quite distant, and are mostly screened with trees.

Visiting Albufeira made us realise how lucky we were to stay in a peaceful area,but close to amenities, with low key Lagos itself within walking distance for the kids.

The house is very clean and well equipped , with insect screens upstairs and shutters on all the windows.The sofas are comfy and the bedrooms and bathrooms goodsized, (but difficult to fit more than 8 round the dining table).

The kitchen is well equipped with coffee maker, blender, microwave etc.There are dishwasher tabs to get you started. The TV and DVD worked fine (limited English satellite channels, and we couldn't find any local ones).

Most of the activities locally weren't open during our stay, Aquapark opens in June and pedalos etc in May, but that did reduce costs!

We were texted about the volcanic disruption by a friend the night before we were due to leave, and Chris was so helpful when I made contact. We were able to stay on as the house wasn't booked for the following week. In the end our return was delayed a whole week ,so I can attest to the washing machine working. Chris very kindly waived the rental fee for the second week, which is in great contrast to the horror stories we have heard.

Unusually for us we are very likely to return

A fantastic holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Dear Chris,

I wanted to send you this message on behalf of my family to thank you

for your part in what was a fantastic summer holiday this year.

We had an excellent time, something that should not be assumed with 3 children, one of which is 2 years of age and with the beach so easily accessible, it was great fun to see her paddle in the sea.

The accommodation was fantastic, immaculately clean, well furnished and maintained, offering us all the amenities we required.

Much of our time was spent relaxing by the pool and having evening bar-b-ques- despite the great location allowing us to readily explore the wonderful town of Lagos and many other of the locations on the Algarve, all of which were in the information pack that you provided us with, another attention to detail that you should be commended for.

Thanks once again and we will be in touch about the next reservation!
