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 +++

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.

We went to stay at Antonio's apartment for our honeymoon in July 2011. We were very unsure about private letting an apartment but the pictures were amazing and Antonio seemed nice so we went for it. We had also been to the resort before and knew the location of the apartment so we were happy with where it was.

When we arrived, Antonio came to meet us and took us personally to the apartment. He was very friendly and showed us around the apartment and the grounds.

The apartment was as shown in the pictures! Really luxurious! We spent most of our time on the large balcony and as Antonio suggested, we used his extension cable most mornings in order to take the toaster out onto the balcony for our continental breakfasts.

The grounds and pool area were perfect. Most days we were the only people lounging around the pool in peace and quiet and the extremely secure entrance to the grounds meant that you were never disturbed by the public.

In the evening, it was a 5-7 minute walk up to the main strip and there are restaurants everywhere. 'Food & Wine' and 'La Dolce Vita' were the best restaurants we went to. It was a bit of a walk out to the Casino (which did excellent cocktails) and again further out to the Fortaleza but well worth the walk. On the way back, you could jump in a taxi outside the Jupiter Hotel and it was only 4 euros to get home.

If you prefer the beach to the private pool, again, it is a 5minute walk directly opposite from the apartment balcony. This is the most pleasant part of the strip of the beach as it is quieter than further along.

For supplies, there is a mini supermarket 3minutes away on foot from the apartment if you walk up in the direction of the hotel 'Clube Praia Mar' and round the corner. It was ideal for fresh bread, milk etc and much better priced than the shops on the strip. When buying large bottles of water, this small walk back to the apartment was accessible.

I would certainly recommend any couple or family to Antonio's apartment. It would easily fit four adults and two children. I would certainly give Antonio our custom again if we return to Portugal!

Great value, great location, home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment for the months of April and May 2011 based on the great reviews and the great correspondence I had with Antonio prior to renting. We were not disappointed. Antonio is an absolute charm and provided top notch customer service. He is awesome.

This apartment is plenty roomy (we had 2 and one guest for 10 days) spotless, very nicely decorated, extremely secure and comes with everything you need to make it your home away from home. The grounds are kept immaculate. It is very convenient to 2 of the city bus lines and a 10-15 minute walk up to Av. Tomas Cabreira. Although more than feasible to take the city bus to the market, grocery store and area attractions, some may find a car more convenient. We did not have a car and managed.

I would recommend this property to any of my friends or relatives. Antonio and his apartment were a GREAT find!
