About Carol

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 Resort and Golf area

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?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Family of 5 adults, stayed at Carol's apartment for a week, weather was great, apartment is exactly as per the pictures, pool is great, cleaned/maintained every day, the apartment has everything you could possibly need, very clean and a great space, the only thing which might be useful would be passes for the free bikes, nearest supermarket is about 40 minute walk and the marina about a 50 minute walk, the supermarket will call a taxi for you which is great. Lamparo restaurant in the marina is a must if you like Italian food. I would recommend Carol's apartment and will definitely be back.

Fantastic holiday!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very well equipped, clean and a good size overlooking the swimming pool. Carol (owner) was very helpful and prompt with answering any queries.

I would recommend going to Zoomarine and the Family golf course in Vilamoura (snacks were a good price).

We had a brilliant holiday and would definitely recommend staying at the apartment. Hope to visit again soon!

Beautiful weather, week and accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed on the Millenium Golf Course for a family wedding and it certainly didn't disappoint, Vilamoura is stunning, the weather was just perfect and the apartment although called one in name is certainly up to villa standards. Three great sized bedrooms especially the main one where accompanied by a large living room another bathroom and a huge balcony leading to the pool. The apartment had every need catered for and I would not hesitate in going back there, loved our week, thank you again, Michael, Alison, Amy, Tom and Sarah

Happy Holiday Stay in Carol's Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are just back home from a wonderful and peaceful family holiday in Carol's beautiful Apartment situated on the famous Oceanico Millennium Golf Course.

It is just five minutes drive to the nearby beautiful Vilamoura Marina and the clean sandy beach of Falasia.

The Apartment is fully furnished and equipped to a very high standard with free Wifi and a flat screen TV. The kitchen has all the facilities and outdoors there is a built-in BBQ which we used several times to cook some of our meals and dine al fresco on the large terrace which overlooks the lovely swimming pool below.

It is located in a very safe, clean and family friendly area of Vilamoura surrounded by some other beautiful properties.

The Apartment is fully furnished and kept spotlessly clean with very comfortable beds. The weather was lovely and warm throughout our happy stay there from the end June to first week of July and we had full use of the excellent air conditioning throughout the Apartment!

We would highly recommend this location as do the other friendly guests who frequently return each year to enjoy Carol's excellently maintained Apartment with the great amenities as very accurately described in her HomeAway

advertisement. A five star experience all round *****!

Private Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Quiet retreat amongst quality estate apartments and beautiful homes right beside golf course overlooking the pool. Immaculately clean, beds comfy. Parking at door. Apartment excellently appointed for easy self catering, home away from home. Weather was amazingly warm in October and we ate on the patio terrace every morning and evening. Supermarket close as is the magnificent Marina where you are spoilt for choice in restaurants. Definitely want to come back!

Again we had a fabulous time. Weather was glorious, pool was a little cold but that didn't stop the children. The apartment is great as it is clean, fully equipped with everything you need. Supermarkets all close at hand. Splash and Swim was great fun. The only down side for us was that eating out seemed so expensive, even away from the Marina.

If you want a relaxing, quiet holiday I recommend this apartment. Very minor point which would be nice is a greater selection of DVDs.

Hope to return again soon. Thank you Carol
