perfect apartment!!!

  • 5 of 5

we have just returned from this apartment and it was just perfect. the flat is immaculate, the underground parking so handy, the owner is excellent to deal with and i would recommend this flat to my friends. we hired a car and drove all round the region, and also found it handy to use for the supermarket.favourite day out was to the 'end of the world' at cape st vincent and the fabulous beach at belixe. the beach at praia da rocha is also postcard perfect.great holiday, highly recommended +++

Very spacious apartment with everything you could possibly need within.

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic stay in Praia da Rocha. The apartment was absolutely perfect with a great sea view from the main balcony. Pool is very large and varied in busyness while we were there. Sometimes we had it to ourselves for several hours, especially between 2pm and 4pm we found. But I never saw more than half a dozen people poolside at any one time, even though it was August when we went. 2 sunbeds were a great bonus by the pool marked with the apartment number, as not all the apartments in the condo had sunbeds and just used towels on the grass. Apartment is VERY spacious with all mod cons. It was very hot when we went so we did use the air con a fair amount. There is also a bonus side balcony off the kitchen which was great for hanging out washing. There are no British channels on the TV so if you are English speaking be sure to bring a laptop where you can watch iPlayer, films, etc.! We paid a very small amount extra for Wi-Fi and it was a godsend with the children, aged 9 and 14! We didn't hire a car in the end but supermarkets and beach are only 10 minutes away by foot. The beaches are spectacular. We preferred the beaches to the right as you face the sea where there were more interesting rocky outcrops and it wasn't so busy as on the main strip, which looked a bit like sardines in a tin. Cut through the caravan park to get to the quieter beaches on the right hand side. Can highly recommend the boat trip into the caves - 3 hours long was just right and the resident boat parrot highly entertaining! Trip cost 30 Euros per adult, 15 per child (under 12) and well worth it. Down the main strip are lots of market holders - be sure to barter with them and the same with the hair braiders - my daughter really wanted it done and we bartered 5 euros off. Definitely would like to return to this amazing place. Antonio is so very lucky to own this gorgeous apartment. :o)

Lovely spacious apartment with sea view

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here last week for 8 days. We arrived late Sunday night so no 1 was able to meet us. Antonio gave us a detailed email with details of keys and codes for the apartment. Which was all easy to find and use. It really helps!!

The apartment was spacious and was great for 4 adults and 2 children.

The balcony was lovely to sit and have breakfast or a meal on. It’s a shame it isn’t a little bit bigger.

We had a lovely week in the area which we have visited on day trips before. Lots of lovely restaurants no more then a 20 minute walk.

There is a lovely swimming pool which is a great size and kids spent most of there time in there. It is such a shame that it isn’t cleaned more often as with the open space and building site next door you get lots of trees and bits in the water. Also some repairs need to be made to the pool. Lots of tiles are coming off and some holes in the pool which a few of us caught our feet on. We came away with a few grazes from the missing tiles and rough parts of the pool. That really let the pool down as it’s a great size and you don’t get many like that anymore.

Once it was clean the children (and the adults) loved spending time in the water.

The 2 Sun loungers were great especially as we were down there so long most days.

The girls loved the park too!!

The only other fault was the WiFi. Most days the connection was so slow nothing would work. With 2 younger children films and CBeebies is a must..... with such a poor connection it was a long week watching the few programs we downloaded.

Thank you Antonio for being a great host even though we didn’t meet you!

Maybe 1 year we will come back and stay :)

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is lovely and maintained to a high level. The location is fairly good with only a 5minute walk to the beach and the start of the main front. The beaches are amazing in Portugal, they go on forever but shame the sea isn't warmer.

We hired a car so we were out and about and made it easy to nip to big supermarket to get supply's. Very well equipment kitchen. The only downsides to the apartment is not having any loungers round the pool, had to sit on the grass. The other thing is there is a building site right next door, didn't bother us too much but would have been nicer without the drilling but they do have Sunday's off! The apartment block itself felt very safe and friendly.

Great family holiday.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family rented Antonios apartment in July/August 2012. Before I comment on the apartment I must also name check the Taxi firm we used for the airport transfers - "Algarve 365". They were excellent and reliable. Also all drivers are from the UK and on the way to the apartment were more than helpful in giving us an overview of the area and hints on places to go, shops, restaurants etc. Couldn't recommend them enough.

As for the apartment, well, what you see in Antonios pictures is what you get. A very modern, well kept and clean apartment in a relatively new apartment complex. It is very spacious, well presented & very comfortable. We had a small issue with hot water on the first day, but between Antonio on the phone and some friends of his in the same building we soon discovered that it was a building issue, not just affecting one apartment. But after the first night we had no recurrence. Another plus for us with renting a property was access to the very nice patio & pool. Unlike a Hotel, most time we had it all to ourselves - no fighting for a place near the pool here.

In terms of location, this also could not have been much better. It was about 10 mins to the 'strip' were there was an abundance of restaurants of all types and price ranges. Beaches are excellent too. For those unfamiliar, as we were, with Praia Du Rocha it is a very Family type resort. An excellent size and not over commercialised. We found it easy to get around, mostly using local buses and people were helpful in pointing us in the right direction etc. we visited a few other resorts and this was for us one of the best. We had visited Albufeira quite a number of years ago and returned on this trip to find it unrecognisable and very commercialised.

For shopping should you wish to do some of your own cooking or just basics I.e. water. We would suggest visiting the large supermarket which can be found by turning right out of the apartment street and heading to the main road. Turn right again and then keep walking. It's quite a walk, about 30 mins, but we did this, stocked up and got a taxi back. Well worth doing than keep carrying water etc around in the heat.

Many thanks Antonio. You have a great apartment in a great location which provided us with a superb setting for a marvellous holiday.

David, Kay & Family

My girlfriend and I stayed at Antonio's apartment in June.

We were slightly unsure about private letting an apartment but Antonio answered all of our questions and was very prompt and quick in getting back to us. Antonio provides the very best customer service!

On arrival at the apartment we were met by Lu who was great and showed us around the apartment and grounds which are very well kept.

The apartment is simply stunning and the pictures do not do it justice. It has all of the facilities you need and was very homely. The design is very modern and the kitchen is very functional. The apartment is also very secure so you don't have to worry when you go out.

The beach is only a five minute walk away from the apartment and is picture postcard perfect!!!

The nearest small shop is only a few minutes away and there is a larger supermarket on the strip for bigger supplies.

The main strip is only a 7 minute walk away and there are bars and restaurants everywhere. 'la casa da rocha' restaurant does amazing seafood (try their garlic piri-piri prawns!) and has a beautiful sea view in the evening.

The people in Praia De Rocha were very friendly and I would reccomend learning some basic Portuguese before you go. We found that we received better service in most places by attempting to converse in Portuguese.

The only downside was that we were only there for 1 week, we now wish that we had booked 2!

All in all a lovely place and a stunning apartment! I would recomend this apartment to anyone looking for a home from home place. It is suitable for families and couples looking for a great getaway!

We would certainly book this place again!

Many thanks Antonio.
