We purchased our lovely apartment in Vilamoura around 10 years ago after having seached for somewhere that felt like it could be home in the region . Shortly after purchasing the apartment we moved to Sydney Australia, where we still live, although we always go back to Portugal at least once a year to enjoy a holiday in the apartment and the lovely Portuguese atmosphere.
Why Carol chose Vilamoura
The apartment is in a small complex of only 12 apartments and so is never overcrowded even on the rare occasions when all apartments are being used. The area is very quiet although only five minutes drive from the lively Marina and beautiful beach - the best of both worlds. We have a lovely view directly over the pool and golf course from our large terrace - an ideal place to sit and relax with a glass of something cool at the end of the day.
What makes this Apartment unique
Having stayed in many holiday rental apartments over the years we wanted to make sure that our apartment was furnished and equipped to provide a 'home away from home'. Vilamoura is a beautifully kept resort with palm tree lined roads, excellent restaurants and bars and of course the fabulous 7Km long Falesia beach. What more can you ask for?

Lovely garden and pool
This is a very clean and well equipped apartment in a lovely, quiet setting. It is a little more bijou than the photos would suggest with the living room seating tight for 6 adults. That said, the apartment has all you would need and the garden / outlook and large pool lovely. A car is really essential.
A beautiful apartment in a wonderful location.
The apartment is immaculate. There are three lovely bedrooms , all with access to outside terraces . There is ample wardrobe space even for a long stay. The living areas are spacious even for 7 of us! Kitchen is well equipped just like home or better. The 2 bathrooms are beautiful in fact the children thought the rain showers were one of the highlights of their holiday ! The pool is literally a couple of steps from the terrace , both the gardens and pool are immaculate. As for location Vilamoura is fantastic as it is a short drive from the airport and a couple of minutes from the most beautiful beaches and stretches of the Algarve coastline.
Thanks Carol , we will certainly be back for a 3 rd visit .
Limited space low comfort not well maintained.
We arrived on a Saturda afternoon and it was 12 deg Celsius outside. Well it was abaout 15 deg Celsius inside because the heating only worked in a bedroom. The caretaker rold us the hearing was broken for some time.
Carol, the administratir for the flat, did not get anyone to fix the hearing but placed a tiny electrical one in the livingroom.
Apsrt from a freezing cold place, the cupboards were a bit filthy. We had expected some form of reduction of rental fee for that freezing experience but Carol refused that.
Because broken heating means also broke A/C, one should ensure that the installation works prior to booking this outlet.
The flat was rented for six persons. For anyone to stay there with a group of six, here is my advise: you should be very close because you will be very very close. There is virtually no space to have a decent breakfirst or seating for more than four people.
I certainly cannot recommend this place.
Unfortunately the details in this review are far from accurate.
The heating was checked prior to the guest’s arrival and was working. The unit for 2 rooms then broke down but the heating in the other 2 rooms, additional radiator and wood burner were all functioning. The management company then provided an additional heater as a back up until the technician was able to attend. Portugal does not enjoy a tropical climate and travellers should be aware of average temperatures when considering what time if the year to travel.
There is a dining table with 6 chairs which comfortably accommodates 6 people in the lounge/dining room. There is a small table n the kitchen which is not advertised as an eating area. There are two sofas and a chair unit in the lounge so adequate seating for 6 people.
We were not previously made aware of any if the other issues the guest raised and so had no opportunity to address these during their stay. We pride ourselves in maintenance and cleanliness of the property as attested to by our numerous other reviews.
We were disappointed by the aggressive tone of correspondence from this guest and would not recommend him to other owners.
October sunshine break
Clean, tidy and well equipped apartment, as described. Ideal for families but you definitely need a car as its a long walk into the centre of Vilamoura. Access to the Vilamoura public bike system isn't possible without owner supplied card which wasn't provided for us. Facilities at the apartment are great and the pool was very quiet although a bit cold. Would definitely recommend staying here.
Hi Michael. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We cannot provide cards for the residents cycle facility due to issues with claiming reimbursement for hire charges and the Council has not extended the scheme for visitors. There are however several cycle hire shops who will deliver to the apartment for guests who wish to cycle.
The pool heating is a recycling system and is dependent on the number of hours of sun, before your stay there were several cloudy days and so the temperature drops, but the water is still warmer than without any heating system averaging 24-25 degrees over the last month.
Perfect haven to relax after golf
The property ticked all of our boxes and provided spacious and very comfortable accommodation. I would look to use it again when I am next back in Vilamoura.
Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you back.
Fantastic Family Holiday in Vilamoura
Thank you Carol for renting your beautiful 3 bedroom apartment to my family for 3 weeks in July '17. Our 3 kids loved the very private quiet pool, most of the time we were the only ones using it. The Apt. was exactly as described - homely, clean, fully functional kitchen, and the newly renovated showers were a prefect way to end a day of sunbathing before heading to the marina.
Only downside was the location is a little too far to walk to the Marina so a car is definitely recommended, which i must add was highlighted by Carol from the outset.
I would recommend this apartment in a heartbeat. Thank you for the memories. J.
Thank you John. We do encourage guests to hire a car and driving is very easy in the area. Taxis are also easily available and we also have guests who hire bikes. We are pleased you all enjoyed your stay - we love the pool too.
