About Nicky Burns.

Lived in the Algarve for 12 years with wife & three children who attended International school,owner of a property maintenance company since 1990 till present date.

Nicky Burns. purchased this villa in 2000

Why Nicky Burns. chose Carvoeiro / Lagoa region

Because I had first choice of any villas on the estate as I bought off plan in what is considered the best location onsite,fantastic views close but not too close to the pools and Restarant/bar.

Very comfortable villa with King sized bed in Master bedroom and good sized beds in twin bedroom,both bedrooms En-suite one with full size Bath including Shower And the other bathroom with walk in Shower,Comfortable Settee with two Matching Armchairs,English TV & Radio and a DVD a big selection of books for the readers.

I bought this and the villa next door simply because I thought they were top specification villas in one of the best locations around which I myself would be more than happy to stay in and have friends and family stay over as well as clients,over the years I have had numerous repeat bookings long term and short term so I must be doing something right!One of my regular clients is an Ex Sporting Lisbon footballer who now plays for Liverpool we have had some good banter over the years which will only increase now he is in England and hopefully playing against my team Arsenal!

I bought this villa as it's in a great area for holiday makers with everything you could on your door step,Supermarket,Restaurants,Bars,Banks etc etc,wonderful beaches,waterparks for great fun at reasonable prices and for the ladies smashing Shopping Malls within a 15 minute drive.Go to Guia where there are plenty of Chicken Piri Piri restaurants which is where Nandos got there idea from it's the original Piri Piri and the best,go to Silves a 15 minute drive from the villa explore the 'real' Portugal meandering through the streets & shops a must is to visit the Castle and all of its Medival splendour or go to the top of the Monchique Mountains where on a clear day you can see as far as Spain along the coast.Carvoeiro itself is a lovely town with its own ambience the area is predominately couples and family orientated I would say and I'm pretty sure you would like it and probably return!

What makes this villa unique

For clients on repeat bookings I offer discounts as a loyalty bonus.

Long term bookings receive discounts.

To assist and help potential new clients to the max and give them the benefit of my experience.

Lovely Property

  • 4 of 5

Vila Vita is situated in a good location. It's very comfortable clean and well equipped. It's a short taxi ride from the centre, where there are many good restaurants. Locally there is the Lighthouse restaurant, enjoyed breakfast here. The view from Vila Vita is amazing. Overall very pleased would recommend to family & friends. The only issue we had was we could not find an information pack.

You will never tire of the view

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed in this villa and will be re-visiting again soon hopefully. I went with my wife and six month old for a week which was delightful. Club Golfemar itself is really well maintained, the pool is lovely with a restaurant that looks across the ocean. The villa itself was ideal for us. A nice big bed and view from the bedroom is great. Kitchen has all mod cons and particularly handy when we arrived late at night was converter plugs in the draws so the baby monitor could go straight on etc. Nice touch with the Peppa Pig DVD, so baby was entertained whilst getting ready in the mornings. All of this was nothing compared to coming back early evening and having a glass of wine on the roof terrace. I would never tire of that view. A glass of chilled white and some locally bought clams which my wife cooked for an early evening appetiser, with that view, was great. Found a lovely restaurant not too far away in Benagil, above the beach, which was super. Overall a great stay, it looked as if it had been recently spruced up with new rug and other bits, and little touches made life easier. Would recommend to friends and family.

Vila Vita, Clube Golfemar Carvoeiro

  • 2 of 5

Beautiful location really lovely area unfortunately the villa was not up to the standard we are used to. The furniture was old and tired, lacking in kitchen equipment, and general maintenance is needed. There was no information whatsoever available to us and no emergency numbers. I would not recommend this particular property to family or friends, but we would definately recommend Clube golfmar. There is a beautiful swimming pool and additional childrens pool a well stocked snack bar and The Lighthouse restaurant and bar is excellent with beautiful views.

Owner's Response: Rather Gobsmacked,it's the first time in 11 years that a client has said that there is not enough kitchen equiptment,just check my itinerary I honestly think I have everything needed,this client also must have missed the drawer under the TV with all telephone numbers for Taxis,Doctors,police etc plus a comprehensive guide to restaurants bars etc throughout Carvoeiro and beyond. In response to the comment about old furniture and general maintenance well you only have to take a look at the photos on this website for you to make up your own minds. It did hurt when I received these comments but I don't suppose you can please everyone,in my defence I recently had a client staying when the fridge stopped working,the client was totally understanding realising things do happen,I have therefore offered him a free week which he and his wife has gratefully accepted. I totally understand how important holidays are for people and I always try my utmost to deliver a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
