About Eileen Tipper

Myself Brian Middler together with partner Jo, sister Dawn and her husband Kenny are the proud new owners of the newly named Casa Freedom. We live in Aberdeenshire in Scotland where there is not a lot of sun so we thought we should get our own place in the sun. Our Property Manager Eileen takes our bookings and looks after our apartment and clients with complete efficiency. Eileen can also arrange your transfers or car hire if required (not essential). She will also call to see you on your first day to ensure all is to your satisfaction.

Eileen Tipper purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Eileen Tipper chose Albufeira

We loved the apartment as soon as we saw it, its bright and spacious. The open plan area has lovely open views from the balconies. The bedrooms are downstairs and both have direct access to the gardens. Our apartment is close to one of the 4 pools and also to the Reception and mini market.

What makes this apartment unique

We chose Clube Albufeira for its closeness to the Old Town with all its bars, restaurants, lovely beaches and also for the many golf courses around the area.

The complex is well maintained with lovely garden areas, 4 pools with snack bars and restaurants if you dont feel like heading into town,

Guestbook comments from the manager

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was big and very well equipped. We had a couple of little glitches but they were dealt with very promptly by Eileen, the manager of the property. Easy to get into Albefuira either by walking (about 30 minutes) or shuttle bus. We walked (we are in our late 60's) and didn't find it a problem, however the area is probably not suitable for people with mobility issues. The apartment is definitely well suited for families or two couples, with plenty of space for everyone.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at Casa Freedom, travelled with my husband and our friends and thier two children aged 6 and 8. The apartment has two bedrooms one with a massive king size bed which was so comfortable, this room also has an ensuite shower room, the second room has twin beds and is next to the main bathroom. There are bunk beds in an alcove right beside the bedrooms which the children loved.

Upstairs is the open plan living/Dining room and small but very well equipped kitchen, there is also another toilet as well as two balconies.

We loved our evenings spent in the garden outside apartment with a bbq and a few drinks and as both bedrooms have patio doors leading to garden once the children went to bed we were just steps away.

The apartment is very close to one of the pools and the owners have even provided inflatables for the pool, there is also a selection of books,games,dvd's and PlayStation games.

We didn't venture too far from the complex but reception will call for taxis if needed and there is a courtesy bus during the day into the old town which is full of shops, restaurants and bars.

Must mention Eileen the property manager who answered all of our many pre trip questions without delay and who also organised our airport transfers it was great knowing everything was under control thanks Eileen we hope to return one day.

Wonderful apartment, fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This is really a wonderful place to stay! It was our second time in this apartment; the first time through the previous owners. We loved it the first time, but the improvements the new owners have made are great!

It's got all the amenities one needs; the owners have even considered needs of families with children (safety gate for the stairs, even beach toys, books, and games). Very comfortable, and although we hardly used the new air conditioning, it was nice to have available just in case.

Along with the owners, who have done so much, special thanks to property manager Eileen, who made this trip as painless as possible by answering all of our questions and taking such good care of us.

Thanks for a great holiday!

Lovely relaxing stay in this home from home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this lovely apartment with my dad and two children and we had a great time. The apartment was spotlessly clean when we arrived, we came in on a late evening flight and had emailed Eileen the manager to ask for a welcome pack, everything we asked for was there and we just paid her when she visited the following day. She told us to let her know if she could help us with anything else and to call if we had any problems, happily we had no problems at all but got the feeling that nothing would be too much trouble for her she was lovely.

The apartment is in a great position just behind O Pavilhao restaurant and pool it is also just a few minutes walk to the small mini market and reception.

The apartment itself is bright, clean and well looked after and has everything you could possibly need including hairdryer and hair straighteners, iron and ironing board, there is a good selection of dvd's and books for both adults and children and we loved being able to play our own music via Bluetooth to the docking station.

The bedrooms are downstairs and they felt quite cool at night so we didn't need the air conditioning on, they were also nice and dark because of the outside shutters.

The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could ever need and we did eat in a couple of times.

O Pavilhao is really nice to eat at with a snack menu during the day and a la carte at night. If you want to go in to town reception will call a taxi for you it costs about four euros there is an amazing amount of restaurants and bars lots with live music and there's a great atmosphere.

The beaches are beautiful and the old town was our favourite part.

We all had a great time and would love to go back again, would recommend this apartment for its size as it gives you that bit more privacy and for its proximity to the pool, shop and reception

Spring Golf Break

  • 5 of 5

Went with 3 friends for a short spring golfing break, fantastic apartment in a super resort on the outskirts of Albufeira. The apartment is bright, spacious, well maintained and only a short walk from reception. Although its only a 2 bedroom with the sofa bed and the 2 additional bunk beds it could easily have slept 8, with a full equipped kitchen and 2 balcony's. The resort has everything you could want for a family holiday, golf holiday or just a short break with friends, the local amenities were a short walk away. The centre of Albufeira was a 5 min. taxi ride away, taxi's if ordered thru reception seemed to be there waiting for you every time as you got to reception which is only a few minutes walk away. The many swimming pools were always clean and the restaurants were excellent. Would definitely recommend it regardless of your holiday type, hope to get the opportunity to go back again.
