Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we walked in, we felt instantly comfortable. The villa is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, comfortable & relaxing. It's placed in a quiet, respectable area & surrounded by great places to eat, drink, shop & take in Portugal's great beauty.

I like attention to detail and this villa had it all. A handy manual tells you everything you need to know, from operating equipment to places to visit. Steve & Joanna have put themselves in their guests' shoes & thought of everything. They were genuinely happy to help & make recommendations to make our stay as perfect as possible, which it was.

There's always something when you're away that you would change, but I can honestly say there was nothing! The whole stay from start to finish by far exceeded our expectations and we can't wait to go back.

Tips; 1) get a hire car, there's not much within walking distance and 2) take the owner's advice on restaurants, bars & places to visit - they've got great taste!

Thank you again Joanne, Steve & Haydn, best holiday ever & all thanks to you!

Claire, Sally & Lesley

Wonderful villa and such a relaxing place to enjoy the great surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully kept villa with lovely pool to the rear of the property which we utilised to the maximum during our week long stay.

Having holidayed in the Algarve for many years this area is absolutely perfect for the delights of Quinta do Lago and Val do Lobo with the best restaurants and beaches within five minutes journey of the villa.

Jo and Steve have set out the property to be very chilled and my family and I really enjoyed the opportunity to laze in the sunshine and when it was a little too warm, move inside to the coolness of the air conditioning.

I could not recommend staying there any higher as we enjoyed it so much we will be looking to book again really soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review regarding your recent stay at Casa Lilly, it is much appreciated. We are pleased that you found the house so accommodating, felt able to chill out and treated it like a home from home. We strive for all our guests to feel this way as family holidays together are so important. We are delighted that you enjoyed so many of the great restaurants in the area and made good use of the beaches too. As you mentioned in your review because the villa is nestled between both Quinta and Vale do Lobo it is easily accessible and centrally located. We hope we can welcome you all again in the future and thank you for your booking. Warm regards, Joanne and Steve

Casa lily ❤️

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd visit to casa lily, as soon as we open the door, it's like being home from home, flowers & delicious treats are there to welcome us! This quite little oasis offers privacy & relaxtion with a lovely outside patio & BBQ area with a small pool to cool off in, as the garden is a little sun trap!!! Inside is spacious & comfortable with generous sized bedrooms & a main family bathroom, lounge area & dining room is very sociable with all the amenities you require are in the kitchen to serve all meals & make delicious drinks!! We've had very happy days here & hopefully will return again, fabulous beaches & restaurants are 10 mins away & a great supermarket in the opposite direction in the Quinta da Lagos shopping center! Happy holidays!!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon at Casa Lilly and thank you for your kind words. We love to welcome our guests with little treats, especially after travelling - a relaxing glass of chilled wine or a lovely cup of tea with cake can really hit the spot on arrival. Once again we are pleased that you enjoyed the house and felt immediately at home, making good use of all the facilities on offer. We know from speaking to you that you made the most of dining out - this time trying a number of different restaurants from your previous stay and enjoying every one - Marias, Paixa and La Parilla were some of your favourites. We hope to welcome you back again in the future and in the meantime enjoy the start of your married life together! Warm regards, Joanne and Steve

Fantastic villa and owners!

  • 5 of 5

The villa has everything we (family of 5) were hoping for.

The excellent mattresses insured a good night's rest. The well-equiped kitchen, combined with Portugese ingredients from Apalonia-supermarket, brought us delicious 'mode-made' lunches.

The children (10, 9 and 3) had great fun in the heated pool.

The villa is in a quit neighborhood, there was hardly any traffic or 'noise'. A (rental) car is advised, since the neighborhood is purely residential.

Not only the villa was terrific, also the owners Joanne, Steve (and Haydn) are very helpfull and really make you feel welcome in their house.

In the area there are plenty of good restaurants. We enjoyed lunch at Pure Boutique in Quinta do Lago and Gigi's at the beach. Had nice diners at Florian, Maria's and Gourmet Natural. But also the burgers at the Hamburgeria Casavostra are great.

I would recommend Casa Lilly unreservedly to anyone!

Very confortable house

  • 4 of 5

We've had a very pleasant stay in casa Lilly.

The house is big and well furnished, the pool is great with kids and the neighbourhood is very quiet and fancy.

Nice visits around Faro, Loulé, the sand beaches, golfs etc...

It was our first time in Algarve. In some point it looks like Florida for golfs, resorts and beach (3 hours from Paris), but the "authentic" Portugal is always close. Everybody could be satisfied. Very good compromise.

And thanks to Joanne and Steve for their welcome and their assistance.

Owner's Response: Hi Frederic, Thank you so much for you lovely review. We are pleased that you and your family had a very pleasant stay at Casa Lilly and enjoyed both the house and the area. As you say the location offers both sides of Portugal - the upmarket (top class restaurants, coffee houses and shopping) and the authentic (local markets, local restaurants etc.) It sounds as though you really toured the area! We would love to welcome you back again and thank you for booking your holiday with us. Kind regards, Joanne and Steve
