Fabulous Villa / 4 bedrooms / 5 bathrooms / sleeps 10 in Praia D'el Rey Portugal

Bedrooms 4
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 - 14 nights


About the property

Enter Praia D'el Rey (which translates as the beach of the King), through the pinewood and eucalyptus forests and you will discover the reason why the resort has won so many awards by the travel industry.

Tatonka is situated overlooking the 9th fairway of the magnificent, award-winning Praia D'El Rey Championship golf course. The villa actually is a 5 bedroom villa all with en-suite bathrooms although the owners keep one bedroom reserved for their personal storage - the bathroom remaining available for guests.

The Master suite on the first floor consists of a large bedroom with a Super King-sized bed (6' x 6' 6") and bathroom with both a large bath and large separate corner shower. There is a private door onto the first floor terrace.

There is a further large double bedroom (with 2 extra single beds which can be moved if required) on the first floor with en-suite bath and separate shower.

On the ground floor the 3rd double bedroom has an en-suite shower and also a door which opens onto one of the outside terraces.

The twin-bedded room with ensuite and shower is also situated on the ground floor. In addition there is also a separate 5th bathroom.

All bedrooms are equipped with a Hair Dryer.

The bespoke fully fitted kitchen and utility area contains all the amenities one would expect from a villa of this quality. Electric cooker with gas hob, dishwasher, microwave, American-style fridge/freezer with ice dispenser, washing machine, tumble dryer, coffee machine, automatic bread maker etc. etc. With breakfast bar.

The sunken lounge area seats 8 people comfortably to watch the 42" flat screen TV. There is a multi-channel satellite box and DVD player..

There is seating for 10 around the large dining table.

There are covered terraces around the rear of the house leading to the mature gardens and pool. A built-in barbeque is right next to the tranquil dining patio area. There are 2 large open terraces on the 1st & 2nd floors. The top terrace is totally secluded and ideal for private sunbathing.

There is a floodlit Boules/Pétanque Court which provides hours of fun for the whole family.

Villa Tatonka is ideal for either a family or golf holiday (or both). The fantastic beaches of the resort are just a short walk away (10 mins), or enjoy a game of tennis on one of the floodlit courts just a 5 minute walk.

Baleal is a famous surfing beach that regularly hosts the World Championships and is only a 10 minute car journey away. Within a few minutes drive of the villa in the nearby villages are a selection of local bars, cafés and restaurants that offer fantastic value for local and international cuisine . Set within a delightful resort development, which boasts miles of uncrowded sandy beaches, it is the perfect holiday destination.

Praia D'El Rey - fit for a King!

Fantastic villa with great facilities and amazing service from Peter

  • 5 of 5

Villa Tatonka offers fantastic size and facilities offering everything that a large family or group of families could ever need.

Peter is also fantastic at getting back to you, flexible and accommodating

The pool is a lovely size, the summer house area great for shade in the daytime and relaxing in the evening. The pétanque area is a lovely bonus.

Villa Tatonka? Simply: great! ;)

  • 5 of 5

Well, what can I say about this wonderful house, Villa Tatonka? Simply: great! ;)

Let me start like this:

This was our third time in Praia D’el Rey, so we’ve already learnt the one thing, that everybody should know: Do not go to Praia D’el Rey without a car. Although Praia D’el Rey is a wonderful place, if you want to see a bit more, you will need a car, as public transportation is nonexistent.

We also found that this area is missing a “typical café”. There is of course the Clubhouse and it’s café, but a “typical” (as is very common across Portugal) is still missing from here.

But ok… this has nothing to do with the Villa Tatonka. So let me switch back to the Villa itself:

First of all I have to complain that the photos shown on HomeAway or FeWo-Direct (as it’s called in Germany) are NOT a true reflection of the house in reality!

– In Reality the house is much more beautiful! - Really, I am not exaggerating! Although the photos do show a nice Villa, in reality it is even better!

It’s a huge and comfortable house with a big entrance hall, big rooms and with enough place for everybody, both inside and out!

We were there as two families: each with 2 adults and 2 children, so 8 people in total.

The heated pool was fantastic and the surrounding garden also very, very nice. The house is completely fully equipped, so we weren’t missing anything. The built-in grill outside is fantastic and the kitchen is almost too big. The bedrooms with their ensuite bathrooms have everything and allow you to have a comfortable sleep.

For us adults, the highlight (every evening) was the “pavilion”. The massive pavilion is built with glass panes on both sides, so it is light, allowing you to see through it whilst still providing good wind protection, a must at night when the wind can be cold!

What I also need to mention is, that upfront we received a very good information pack from the property owner, with all the necessary information about the Villa, Praia D’el Rey, the surrounding area and even the rest of Portugal! – This was very good!

In addition, Mrs Olga came to welcome us. She was very kind and said that we could call her whenever we needed to. However, in the end, with the very comprehensive information pack, we didn’t need to call for any additional help!

To keep it short: Villa Tatonka is a great house allowing you to have a wonderful stay in Praia D’el Rey!

Thanks a lot!

Owner's Response: Many thanks Armando for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review and all your kind words, they are much appreciated. You are not the first guest to have told us that our photographs do not do the villa justice - we will try to improve them! We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
