I really enjoyed the house and its privacy... no neighbours!!
The only thing that could be improved is to have the minimum for the kitchen (soap for dishes, oil, salt and pepper).
Kathy was very nice and very quick in her reply.
Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We are very pleased you enjoyed the villa and surrounding areas, and had an enjoyable holiday.
We have endeavoured to equip the kitchen for everything that one would need, or have in their own . The villa is self catering, and I feel to leave oil, and condiments out for approximately eight months would be unhygienic.
You were a delight to deal with, and I hope you choose us again.
Best regards - Kathy & Francisco

Well equipped but problems with hot water supply.
Poor water pressure in basement rooms. Hot water supply intermittent. Location good and villa in a very tranquil setting. WiFi excellent and plenty of poolside equipment
Thank you for feedback Tommy, I do apologise for the problem with the hot water. It is regrettable that things can go wrong anywhere, anytime, and It’s unfortunate you didn’t contact myself or speak with Nazare regarding the hot water problem in the ground floor bathroom. When you left Nazare noticed this, and it was literally repaired in minutes. The water pressure in the villa is very good, the problem can occur when there is a mains burst, which will effect all the houses in the area.
Best regards, Kathy & Francisco
The villa is stunning! It's located near Budens and only 10 min drive from a very cheap supermarket (Lidl). Close by is Sagres town and numerous beautiful beaches to surf at or just sunbathe on!
The villa itself is huge! There's loads of space and is immaculate. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped for self-catering and the pool area is like a little paradise. We had a cleaner visit us every other day which was also a lovely touch - coming home to a spotless villa and freshly made bed after a day of surfing is amazing!
Communication with Kathy is excellent. She's quick to respond and incredibly flexible. It's been a fantastic experience overall and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying here. Just to note that a car is definitely required. Thank you Kathy and Nazare for making our stay so perfect!
Thank you so very much Stephen for taking the time and trouble to write this amazing review, we so appreciate it.
We are more than pleased you had a great holiday, and it was real pleasure to have guests like you to stay, and there is no doubt, we would love to have you back again.
Best regards, Kathy & Francisco
pretty much perfect
located just off of the main road but far enough away for traffic noise to not be an issue.
The place is fantastic. Spacious bedrooms a great pool and a kitchen that has everything you could ever think of.
There is a lounge and tv which we didn't use but is very nice - we spent all our time outside and if windy in the sheltered dining space near the BBQ.
The place was spotless and incredibly well equipped.
There is aircon throughout on the ground floor but im pretty sure this didn't get turned on once as it was plenty cool enough in the evenings.
We adopted the local dog and a cat - the dog likes steak and grilled chicken if anyone sees him but don't leave your trainers outside the front door as he takes them home with him.
Cant wait to go back next year.
will be back next year
Hi Nick, so happy to receive your review, and thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to write this - we so appreciate it.

Thank you Peter, we really appreciate your feedback.
