What makes this apartment unique

Very Central, on the beach and within walking distance to an abundance of restaurants an bars! Car not needed

Guestbook comments from the owner

" We have all had a great time here, great apartment, pool and view. The kids really enjoyed the pool and spent most of the 2 weeks under water. The best for us was the luxury of this apartment and all that it provided along with the Old Town's back streets.

The Marina was disappointing at night with no taxis! Hope to be back again next year"

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment in May for a week. We absolutely loved it. It's in a great spot. The beach is just a short walk. The Old Town was about a 20 minute walk. The kitchen was very well equipped. I would definitely recommend a stay here.

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time in 14 months we have visited Quinta de Barracuda. Super modern apartments with spectacular sea views, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Close walking distance to a wide selection of bars and restaurants. Would not hesitate in recommending these apartments. already planning our next trip.

Perfect, territory, building & apartments. Super

  • 4 of 5

Quinta de Barracuda has a closed territory from outside it means private & secured. Rules managed by the guests, that creates calm & relaxing atmosphere. 300 m to the perfect beach, 15 min by walking to the old town. Perfect apartments with everything you need to leave for a two weeks. Management polite & fully oriented to customers, easy to communicate & hear the clients individual situation. Nothing to ad to the words "Best in the town and probably country". One the best vacation in my life (43 years). Thank You Anna Maria for everything. Tomas & Kristina

Beautiful ocean front condo

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Quinta Barracuda in various apartments over the course of three months, from early February until the end of April. During that time, we had family members join us for two weeks, so we were able to check out their condominium accommodations as well. Every one of the condo units we saw were spotlessly clean, modern, efficient, and comfortable. The proximity to the beach and views from each unit was spectacular, allowing us to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean at night!

Furthermore, the service provided by Maria and her colleagues on site (Kevin and Louise), was first class. Any minor issue that arose was promptly and professionally addressed.

The location of Quinta Barracuda is tough to beat, in that a vehicle was not required, as we were able to walk to most services in Albufeira. The condo complex is also close to both taxi rank and bus stops, and a walk or bus ride to the main bus and train stations for intercity excursions.

The only issue was the state of the tennis court, that was in a state of disrepair, but we were able to find two tennis facilities close by. Having said this, the current state of disrepair did not stop others from using the court for pickleball.

We highly recommend Quinta Barracuda, and the service provided by Maria Douglas of and have already recommended her and Quinta Barracuda to friends and family.

Simply outstanding, just as stated in description. Kevin who showed us to our apartment was lovely and polite.

So clean and beautifully decorated. The pool area is great with artificial grass and plenty of sunbeds. Beach is three min walk away from the gate near the pool. From the front gate lined by trees you can reach two other beaches either side of the Auromar hotel. Visit Chilli pepper restaurant next door, stunning food and friendly owner. Definitely going back.

Perfect! Great communication! Immaculate property

  • 5 of 5

Returned from a wonderful 9night stay in apartment B02. This was a wonderful ground floor sea facing and corner apartment. The apartment was immaculate and everything was arranged perfectly. Maria was excellent at arranging everything we needed and the communication with her from the booking right up to the week of departure was excellent. Everything was perfect. Cannot recommend Maria and the apartment highly enough! Will definitely be returning. My husband and myself with our three kids had the best time.

What’s so special?................With location being one of the keys to a great holiday, it is worth noting that the location here is truly remarkable, it boasts spectacular sea-views of Albufeira bay and the Old Town.

It's only a 2 minute stroll through the private gated access to the beach. A leisurely 15 minutes stroll along the beach takes you into the Old Town of Albufeira with it’s quaint cobbled streets and amazing cuisine.

The famous buzzing ‘Strip’ is only a 5 minute walk!

Golf: The Algarve was awarded 'Established Golf Destination Of The Year 2006' by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators.

There are 3 local golf courses a short drive away, the closest being a 5 minute drive away.

These are Salgados (18 holes), Pine Cliffs (9 holes) Balaia Golf (9 holes).

Some of the other world class golf courses in Vilamoura include Victoria, Millenium, Pinhal, and Old Course which are approximately 15-20 minutes drive away

In addition to the many courses in the central and western Algarve, there are also numerous high-class courses in the eastern Algarve and nearby Costa de la Luz in Spain. Amongst these are signature courses from two of the world's greatest names in golf; Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus, and Quinta Do Vale designed by Seve Ballesteros. Both of these courses can be reached from the apartment in around an hour.
