Amazing Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

First impression walking in the door was "WOW". It was so much more spacious than can been seen in the photos. We had a good look around the apartment, especially the kitchen which had pots,pans,a full sized oven (yes we did use it), toaster, microwave,washing machine etc. I can't think of anything missing!

As a plus in our book, this complex encourages recycling and huge black designated bins are clearly seen outside on the roadside.

After unpacking we headed out to find the famous"Strip". It is a 15 minute walk, some of it uphill, but it is not unpleasant and is far enough away to insure a good night's sleep. We did this walk at all hours of the night and never once felt in any sort of danger, most people we met were just like us...coming home after a great night out!

The next morning we woke to bright sunshine and once the shutter went up we stepped out on the balcony to look at the pool and we saw there were lots of people but still lots of loungers vacant.We never actually made it to the beach, because we were so happy with the pool!

The location of this apartment is fantastic. It is spotlessly clean, linen service is once a week, you can walk comfortably to everything in new Albufeira and the Old Town is a 4 euro taxi ride away. Don't be afraid to explore the side roads off the strip because we found some hidden gems of restaurants in these areas. The Cockeral County Kitchen being one of the best.

In the 3 weeks we were there we did 2 big shopping trips once to Mondelo Shopping Centre (Continente), and the other to Lidl. Both are an 8 euro return trip by taxi. I personally preferred Mondelo because it has such a great range of produce.

There is a pretty good medium sized supermarket 5 minutes walk from the apartment walking directly across the Globe Roundabout, keeping the Fantastic Chinese clothing shop on your right and going a further 2 blocks.

This property is owned by Mike & Julie who were very helpful and friendly from the very start. Answering every question and email promptly.

We would recommend this apartment to friends and family or anyone else because it was just like home!

Lovely apartment,spot on.

  • 5 of 5

Robert & Carol,

We hired a car from the airport to the apartment,and the directions the owner gave us was spot on.

We thought the apartment was lovely,there is every think you need is there.

It is in a good location,for shops,restaurants and beach,all in walking distance.

And the pool is right out side our balcony.

The weather was really good in the 60's all the time we were there,and we did'nt see a cloud in the sky from the time we landed until the time we went home on New years day.

I would go again to the apartment,and i would recommend it to any one and friends.

Bob & Carol from Cardiff,Wales.

Spot on spot

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week in this apartment and found it exactly as advertised. It was fully equipped (except for a hairdryer) and we were so glad it had air con as the weather was very hot and it helped that the pool was just below our balcony. The Strip and Tourist train were only 5 minutes walk away so no need to hire a car. We would definately recommend the apartment to anyone.

Dutch family with 2 boys

  • 5 of 5

Through the holiday rentals UK site we booked this lovely appartment in Albufeira for a short breakout in early summer with our 2 boys of 6 and 3.

Driving from Faro airport with our rental car was very easy and we received a warm welcome from the English speaking management staff always around on this nice and clean appartment complex.

The appartment on the first floor is very clean and well equiped and lives up to the expectation from the photo's on the site.

The boys couldn't wait to jump into the pool and we could watch them from our balcony. They had a great time with other kids, mostly from UK so they could practice their English.

The appartment is conveniently located for supermarkets, shops and restaurants. We also made a short trip to Silves castle, which we really recommend as a nice local village away from the beach resorts at no more then half hour drive.

The satellite TV enabled us to watch all games of the Dutch team in South Africa, who knocked out Brasil during our stay in Albufeira. Unfortunately after we returned home, they lost the final, but this could not spoil our memory of the nice stay in the Corcovada appartment in Albufeira.

Last but not least, the communication with the owners Mike & Julie, for booking and enquiries, was very friendly and comfortable.

Lovely Relaxing Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is beautifully decorated and truly a home away from home. The location is perfect, a walking distance to the centre, strip and beach but just far away enough not to be rowdy.

Restaurants and supermarkets are also within walking distance and there was a little dvd rental shop nearby for when we wanted a quiet evening in.

The TV has freeview, the kitchen is fully equipped and theres air con in every room! We also found the owners and management team to be very friendly and helpful whenever we had an enquiry.

We would definately recommend this beautiful apartment and hope to return again.

The apartmetent itself was clean and very accommodating with air conditioning and all mod cons. The owner provided excellent customer service by highlighting activities and attractions to visit and places to eat.

We would definitely recomend the property to a friend!
