What a fabulous house, thank you Norah and John for sharing this gem with us. We were a family of 8 adults and 2 children. The house is situated in a residential area so nice and quiet but only a 10 min walk from the strip, the beach being a further 10 min walk.
Everything you required was supplied, from the kitchen store cupboard to basic soaps, suncream, floats and vests for the children to utilise in the pool even charcoal for the bbq. The whole experience was second to none.
Zoo marine is well worth a visit, especially for the children and of course a boat trip is a must, with a bbq cooked for you on the beach....fabulous.
If you are still contemplating renting this villa then contemplate no longer...book it, I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
Once more thank you Norah for great communication and the discount vouchers you sent.
We booked villa for a 4 generation family holiday, ages from 19 months to 89 years. It was perfect. The villa was even better, if that's possible, than shown by the online photographs. John and Norah were most helpful before, during and after our stay. Our grandsons loved the games rooms. The villa had everything one could want or need on holiday. Our thanks to Gloria for looking after the villa during our stay. Casa Bouganvilla is ideal for walking to the strip where there are loads of restaurants. We can recommend Martinique at the top of the strip, the new Dubliner (for breakfasts and evening meals) also Sizzling Stone at the bottom of the strip. Thank you John and Norah we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your beautiful villa.
What more could we say about this villa that has not been said in all the other reviews!
Very deceiving as you pull up outside and think is this it, but WOW! When you open the front gate and walk into the mass of flowers covering almost the entire villa….it is stunning. You then enter the entrance hall and come across the magnificent spiral staircase and it goes on and on from there.
John and Norah have thoughtfully and tastefully decorated and equipped this villa to suit all people of all ages. Unlike other villas, you are supplied with items such as sun tan lotion, dishwasher tablets, washing powder, toilet rolls, soap, tea, coffee, even down to ice cubes to name but a few.
The villa itself is kept immaculately clean five times a week by Gloria, the lovely cleaner, not a speck of dust anywhere.
The customer service you will receive is also second to none. Norah contacts you immediately on your enquiry and will talk you through the villa and your requirements. She will advise on places of interest and recommend good places to eat (You must go to The Cockerel Country Kitchen, the food is outstanding!) She will send maps with everything highlighted, which were really helpful.
We can honestly say this is the best accommodation we have ever had and the best holiday, we were so lucky to find this gem….last minute too!
Do not hesitate in booking this villa now, we certainly will be going back time and time again.
The James Family.
If you are reading this review and are considering whether to rent this property out then think no more if the villa, price and location suit your needs. From the moment we decided to choose this villa I felt at ease due to the care and attention that we received from Norah. We, a group of families have been renting for 9 Years or more now without any problems but I can honestly say that this was the first time that we had received calls from the owner to see who we were, what we were looking for, what age group etc. and not only to protect their villa but genuinely to take an interest in what we wanted.
Help was provided in choosing the car hire and once at the villa there was all sorts of information about the villa and surrounding area. The villa itself was more than adequate for us a party consisting of 7 adults and 3 children ranging from 1 to 71. There were plenty of sunbeds to lounge around the pool, which saw sun all day and a BBQ area big enough to cater for us all.
On entering the villa you were on the middle floor. This consisted of a medium size living room with a TV which included Sky. There were also plenty of books and games available. A good size kitchen had all that you required, a safe was also available in what I would call an old fashioned pantry. Also on this floor was a dining room and a very large living room, which was mainly used by those not wanting to listen to the TV. Upstairs were 3 large bedrooms with the main one having a small separate room attached and an en-suite, perfect if you have a small baby. Downstairs in the basement there were a further 2 bedrooms, a dance floor, bar, table tennis, pool table and football game. Ideal for having a laugh.
As mentioned in previous reviews Gloria the house maid came daily and carried out her work with a smile even when the kids were pestering her. The villa is within walking distance of the main strip and restaurants but you will require transport to get your shopping. We didn’t find a supermarket that catered for all our needs but they were all within reasonable distance.
The beach was just a short drive away and Zoo Marine was well worth a visit. There is a bull ring a short walk away if that is your thing as well.
As stated at the beginning one of the reasons I have taken to writing this review is purely because of Norah. On many occasions whilst renting we have been fed up as simple information hasn't been available, this wasn’t the case here so give it a try.
We have just returned home from a 2 week family holiday in this beautiful Villa.
We were a large group - 6 adults, teenager(15) & 3 small children aged 21/2, 15months & 10 months.
The villa is very spacious, giving us all plenty of space without being on top of each other, we all had our own bathroom facilites which was great. The kitchen area has everything you can possibly need, coffee machine makes lovely coffee and dishwasher was well used.
The pool area was the main focus of our day and great fun was had by everyone, a playpen was provided which we found very useful for the little ones.
We had some lovely evenings around the BBQ area after the children had gone to bed, where my son played chef and served up some tasty food.
A daily maid service was provide by lovely Gloria, she was marvellous, she arrived every day to clean, make beds etc which really made the holiday a very relaxing experience. It was lovely to return to the villa after the day out to find the place spotless.
The men also spent some great evenings in the games room, playing pool and drinking at the bar. This room was also used as a place for the young ones to run around and let off steam.
The villa is in a good quiet location for a great family holiday, but the strip is a short walk away, where we found a lovely Italian restaurant.
We spent a couple of days in the Old Town of Albuferia, very easy to get to on the little train ( 4 Euros for a day ticket) the train runs from early morning until late into the evening.
I would just like to add how great Norah is, I had to contact her quite a few times to rearrange dates, she also arranged for an extra highchair to be provided, nothing was too much trouble for her.
I would highly recommend this Villa if you are looking for a place to have a great family holiday.
Hi John & Norah, Just like to drop you a line and say thanks for the use of your wonderfully modern, clean and equipped villa.
It has everything that a family could wish for (and more).
This is the second time we have stayed here and once again was pleased by the high standards you have maintained.
Whatever you do don't ever change your cleaner, she is worth her weight in gold. (nothing was ever a problem to her).
We come to the Algarve twice a year (7th. year) and like to go to different areas, hence not being to your villa since 2008.
We have to say that this has to be the best villa we have ever stayed at. The location is ideal and only a gentle 5/10 min stroll to the Strip (just far enough to be away from the hustle & bustle). It may not be as long as 4 years before we are back again.
I'm not sure, but I think your rental prices are less than what we paid in 2008. It was goood value then, and is even better now (being slightly cheaper but not spoiling the high standards you have maintained in the villa).
My wife and I have always say "you only get what you pay for", and the price we paid for our 6 day stay is definitely very good value for money.
Thanks once again Ken, Diane & family
The Villa is in a quiet residential area. It is the perfect location for the family who want the best - but don't want to have to go far to find the rest! It is within walking distance of a wide choice of restaurants/bars/shops/supermarkets & hairdressers. A fun train operates from the Strip to the Old Town of Albuferia & Fisherman's Beach. The town also boasts a new Marina. Vilamoura is 15 mins by car where you will find 5+ golf courses, International Marina, deep sea fishing trips & sea cruises. Along the coast of the Algarve are several water parks. A visit to Zoomarine to see the dolphins, seals, sharks & exotic birds makes for a happy family outing. The Algarve Shopping Centre is 10 mins by car where you will find a good choice of shops, restaurants, a cinema and bowling. Our management team can arrange day trips to local markets, golf and excursions to places of interest.
Golf: What can we say? The Algarve is a Golfer's Paradise. Fifteen minutes by car from the Villa is Vilamoura with its 5+ Golf Courses. These Courses are highly recommended and pre-booking is advised to avoid disappointment. You will find brochures in the Villa detailing the many other golf Courses on the Algarve.
