Guestbook comments from the owner

Review #5545984 "Excellent Apartment"



We stayed for 11 nights at the apartment and can only say good things about our stay, nothing negative at all. The kitchen is like a home from home, with excellent facilities. The apartment is very spacious, the 2 bedrooms having plenty of room and the living room is huge. The balconies are also very spacious. The pool area was spotlessly clean and was very quiet and peaceful. It is in an ideal location with just a short walk to the beach and the bars and restaurants. We would definetely recommend the apartment and will for sure book again. Heather & Brian, Scotland

Fabulous Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous spacious and spotlessly clean apartment. Stayed for 2 weeks with our 2 children ages 10 & 7. Two large bedrooms with plenty of wardrobe space. Large sitting room and dining area and fully equipped modern kitchen. 2 balconies which get the sun all day long. We had full use of the pool which we had to ourselves most of the day.

This apartment is in a fab area as it is close to the marina, beach and main strip but yet far enough away that it is perfect at night time. All the above areas are less than a 5 minute walk.

We didn't want or need for anything while we stayed & will definitely be back next summer. Already looking at dates and flights.

Highly recommended.

Thanks again George for all your help.

Fantastic Appartment very clean

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very spacious and spotlessly clean and is suitable for a group/family of up to 5 people. In a nice, quiet and peaceful location. The TV and WiFi service included ensured that we kept in touch with the outside world. Spacious car parking also available.

Its only about a 5 min walk to the beach and a 3 min walk to the main strip where there is a great selection of restaurants, pubs shops and amenities.

George was very helpful during the booking process and always available to offer guidance on places to visit, eating recommendations and always available to answer any questions. Overall a great holiday. Fantastic accommodation and highly recommended. We will be back.

Fantastic Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We came to Praia Da Rocha for a family wedding at the end of July 2015 and quite frankly could not have picked a more perfect apartment for this. The apartment itself is beautiful and spacious (very handy with two children to accommodate) and has everything you could possibly need. The swimming pool also was perfect and very quiet (having it to ourselves most of the time). and the location was spot on, only a 5 min walk to the beach, shops and restaurants and just across the road from the apartment was the pick up point to the parks such as Zoo Marine and Slide and Splash. Both Stephen and George were always very helpful throughout the booking process and answered any questions we had and even recommended the guy (Tom) for our airport transfers who was also brilliant. Having never been to Portugal before, we have certainly been won over and will most definately be returning
