Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious villa with lovely south facing aspect. Stunning views to wake up to and the sound of the waves added total relaxation to our holiday. Very nice pool and terrace with plenty of lounging and entertainment areas. We had a super holiday with easy walks along the beach to Albufeira town. Will definitely visit again!

Fantastic Villa overlooking the Sea.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful two weeks at Casa Do Mar. The villa is in a wonderful location and kept to a high standard. The kids loved the pool and the ping pong table provide lots of fun.

Beautiful Villa, exceeding expectations

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was everything we hoped for and more! It was clean, comfortable and has everything you need for a perfect villa holiday. Florence was great, really helpful with the booking and answering any queries both before and after our stay. We have recommended it to everyone as it would be well suited to any type of group on holiday. Stunning views over the beach and sea, and a perfectly quiet location but still within walking distance to nightlife, or an inexpensive taxi into the Old Town. Can't wait to book again next year!

Great location but getting a bit tired

  • 4 of 5

Location is great, we walked along the beach to Albufeira several times. Some of the maintenance is in need of attention as below:

No mirror in the main bedroom

Poor lighting in the bathroom

Shower heads leaking, covered in limescale, fittings damaged so that shower would not stay in place in lower bedroom 2

Fridge underpowered and badly needs defrosting

Fitting in the fridge missing

Floor mats did not appear until day 3

concrete between the tiles around the pool is crumbling making walking around uncomfortable

Grill from oven is missing therefore not possible to grill if you do not want to BBQ

WiFi code not listed in the book, needed to run modem upside down to get code, ok for us with tech savvy children but could be difficult for others

Reception did not respond to request for foam rather than feather pillows

Overall a bit on the expensive side for the quality of the villa but rescued by the location

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Have recently returned from a week at the villa - travelled with my husband plus 3 older teenagers. It was perfectly placed for us all as it took around a 10 minute walk along the beach to the old town and the same time to the 'Strip' where the boys visited most nights. The villa has the most stunning views and a perfect way to have breakfast each morning looking at the ocean. It was very clean and a nice touch was having some milk, tea/coffee, bread, ham and cheese provided for when we arrived. The pool was great - of good size with plenty of sunshine all day long and I did pay to have the pool heated which was well worth the money. Had slight problem with aircon in one of the bedrooms but reported this and it was dealt with straight away. Only British channels on the TV were the news channels, we did let them know as it was meant to have freeview - again they did try to resolve the problem, even changed the skybox box. Would return.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic week in a perfectly located villa. The Sea views are spectacular and the pool area is secluded, peaceful and catches the Sun all day long.

The Old Town is very walkable along the beach, and taxis are plentiful for returning home each evening. We would definitely return.

Beachfront villas such as 'Casa do Mar' are extremely rare. This semi - detached villa has been refurbished, to a very high standard. The villa enjoys a fantastic location directly above the beach with wonderful sea views - they cannot get any better ! The beach is accessed by way of a paved footpath that leads directly to the beach bar / restaurant, which is only a 2 to 3 minute walk. There are many amenities very close including a mini market and a good selection of bars and restaurants. Albufeira town is just 2 kms, approx 30 minutes walk, but only about 15 minutes if you walk along the beach. The villa is located within a private cul de sac.

The swimming pool can be heated ( this is available as an optional extra ). The pool is surrounded by terraces with 6 quality sunbeds and a brick built BBQ, poolside shower and a pool bathroom with shower. To the side of the villa is a spacious lawned area of approx 130 M2.
