Lovely spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay here, the apartment was spacious and bright and had everything in it you could want, a lovely big balcony overlooking the large pool and in a peaceful area, it is around a 15-20 min walk to the Marina and taxis back about 5 euro, Sheila was very helpful and showed us round and the apartment has its own sunbeds which is a bonus, a small welcome pack was a nice gesture and would definitely use this apartment again.

Excellent stay would definitely recommend

  • 5 of 5

Wanting a 4 day short break to Portugal decided to try Vilamoura as it was so close to the airport and booked this apartment on the reviews listed, we weren't disappointed. Sheila who owns the apartment was fantastic from enquiry to returning our deposit within a day of returning. She organised transfers which were reasonable and on time, even receiving a txt the day before departure back to the UK to confirm exact time of pick up. Sheila met us on arrival and explained everything we needed to know. She is on hand if you need her but otherwise just leaves you to enjoy your stay. The apartment itself is spotless, spacious, quiet and fantastically equipped. As other people have mentioned we had the pool more or less to ourselves and the balcony overlooking the pool is the perfect place for an evening drink. The communal areas are also immaculate and the roof terrace of the building has an amazing view, including the nearest golf course. Although about a mile walk to town and the marina, it's an easy walk and if you don't fancy the return stroll, we had a taxi one night and it was only 5 Euros. There are more than enough restaurants to choose from and the beach is lovely. Definitely a good find!!!

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

What can we say. Was a pleasure to stay in Sheila & Ians lovely apartment. It is a home from home, with everything we needed. Nice big balcony overlooking pool,super quiet almost had it to ourselves the whole time we were there.Sheila could not do enough for us during our stay,she was so kind and extremely helpful. As no one was due in on the day we were leaving she let us stay as long as we needed to and printed off our boarding passes. We would definitely stay again in the future and recommend it to others. Thanks Sheila.

Spacious apartment with a great balcony

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Sheila & Ian's apartment and it was outstanding once again. It's a comfort to return to a place that's so spacious and well equipped. It's plain to see the owners take great pride in their property and this is shown in their high standards of cleanliness, maintenance, and additions like a new high chair and baby cot. The apartment block is quiet and relaxing without being subdued. Sheila had the lights on and the place ready when we arrived, which we felt was a lovely touch. Already planning to come back in 2018. Thanks again for a lovely stay!

We had an amazing week at Sheila's apartment. Sheila contacted us before we arrived and gave us lots of information about the area, she also arranged for someone to pick us up at the airport. She even offered to do food shopping for us. She met us at the apartment when we arrived and texted us on a couple of occasions during our stay. The apartment is extremely clean, very homely and very comfortable. We enjoyed swimming in the pool which was usually very quiet. Lots of time was also enjoyed sitting on the balcony overlooking the pool. I would highly recommend this property to anyone thinking of spending some time in Portugal, Vilamoura is the perfect destination.

Wonderful stay in a well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a great 11 days in this apartment in March 2016. Sheila couldn't have done enough to ensure we had everything we needed. She was great the night we arrived - we got slightly lost so she came and found us and brought us to the apartment. If you are a sun worshipper like we are you will not be disappointed. Early morning you get the sun on the outside balcony overlooking the road, from early afternoon to sundown the sun is on the large rear balcony that overlooks the pool. The apartment is large, safe and secure: there's underground / exclusive parking which must be an added bonus in summer when it's extremely hot out. We enjoyed our stay that much we sought to book again for 2 months time but unfortunately the apartment is booked up for practically the entire summer. Not surprised really. We have been to vilamoura 7 times now and have never stayed at the same place twice, but we will definitely be back to vilas romanas - thanks again Sheila!
