Lovely little house, perfect position

  • 5 of 5

We had a really wonderful time, everything was so easy to get to, fantastic restaurants within minutes walk.

The beach was beautiful and almost empty.

The house has everything you could possible need.

As other people have commented the local dogs are a bit of a pain with their barking but being on holiday you just turned over and went back to sleep.

Would like to book same week next year if possible just need to wait for Jet2 flight days for next year when they are released .

Thank you also for organizing the taxi's.

Best wishes

Ian and Pauline Tweeddale

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We are sorry about the dogs. You can hear them iall over Alvor. Where we live ourselves in Alvor we have dogs in the neighborhood as well. With the shutters completely down and closed you do not hear them anymore. We would love to be able to welcome you again. Most of our guests are returning. We aim for that and we continually try to improve the house and our services where we see a possibility. Hopefully till next year!

Lovely townhouse.

  • 4 of 5

We had great 2 week stay.The house is perfectly

situated with great views over the harbour,a good big comfy bed.The house is very well eguiped with everything you need. The only complaint we had was the lovely big 55 inch TV didnt'work. We don't go our holidays to watch TV but we like to catch up with the news. We think the WiFi is needing updated.

Lovely little house

  • 5 of 5

A well equipped and very comfortable little house with an amazing, and constantly changing, view of the harbour and estuary. It’s in a nice quiet area but still very close to everything I needed. Walking distance to supermarket, beach and loads of restaurants. Definitely a property I would return to.

Lovely house - great location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house, well equipped kitchen, great location - close to restaurants/bars, lovely views from terrace, big comfy bed, nice shower/bathroom, TV/Wi-Fi good.

Shame about the barking dogs, but I guess there's not much that can be done about that.

Stairs a little daunting, maybe not suitable for the elderly

However, definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for recommending casa do burro. We are glad to hear you found the big bed comfy and the shower/bathroom and the TV/ WIFI good and that you enjoyed the lovely views. I am sorry that you could hear the barking dogs in the village. It is true that there is not much we can do about that. However the whole house has double glass insulated windows and electric shutters in front of these windows. Closing the electric shutters at night should reduce hearing much from what goes on outside. We hope to welcome you again!
