About Jacqueline Dean
We are Jonathon and Jacqueline Dean and we live in Surrey, England. We have only owned the house a short time but have been visiting the Algarve for many years. Jonathon is a very keen golfer and Jacqueline is a very keen sunbather! so we enjoy the best of both worlds. We have two teenage children who love the water parks and especially Zoomarine which we have visited many times.
Jacqueline Dean purchased this Villa in 2016
Why Jacqueline Dean chose Mato Serrão
It's a lovely house with views to the sea. Having the bedrooms downstairs mean they stay reasonably cool even at the height of summer. We also have a log burner and wall heaters so the house can also be used in the winter months. The swimming pool area is spacious with lots of sunloungers, and it also has a kiddy pool and play area. Even in the busiest months the pool area is never over crowded.

A very pleasant property with great facilities and good location. Ideal for a relaxing family break
Great home with all facilities we needed, The only downside was fridge shelf was broken, but did not affect our holiday.
Thank you for your lovely review, hope to have you as a guest again in the future

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday as a family of 6, 4 adults and 2 children. The villa was very spacious, lovely and clean and well equiped. We were pleased to find lots of umbrellas for our use around the pool which were very greatfully received. The gardens were beautiful and well maintained and the office staff were very helpful. The pool was lovely and quiet with plenty of sun beds and was enjoyed every day by the children. We would highly recommend to others. Thank you for letting us stay at your property Jacqueline.
Thank you so much for your lovely review Helen, I couldn't have asked for nicer guests.
Clean, well planned house in a charming location with well maintained gardens and pool.
This was a delightful place to spend our holiday.
The house was immaculately clean and very well furnished, equipped with everything needed down to the last tea-spoon. There is a quiet, efficient, air-conditioning system in every room and in every bathroom ,and the upstairs toilet, good quality towels were provided together with a bottle of liquid soap.
From the wide balcony, which includes a table and seating for six, there is a panoramic view of the Carvoeiro bay from dawn to sunset.
At night the paths in the vicinity have sensor lights, and there are lights on the steps to the house, so that one is safe right up to the front door. There is parking outside the front door.
However, perhaps the most appreciated extra for us was the fact that renting the house entitles us to use the splendid private pool, the snack bar and the restaurant of the club house, which is only a very short walk through the private gardens. The pool is cleaned daily and a life guard is on duty for the length of opening time. There is a charming pool for toddlers and the main pool is spacious. A large number of sunbeds are available without charge. Entry is strictly restricted to those who live or rent houses in this small complex and unpleasant or disrupting behavior is not tolerated.
The office in the complex is open every week day where the staff are happy to help with many small things such as booking a taxi or fixing something in the house.
I would not hesitate to recommend this house to my friends who have children, grandchildren or simply want a quiet, trouble free holiday in the beautiful Algarve.

Thank you so much for your lovely review, I couldn't have asked for a nicer guest!. Hope to have you stay again in the future.
Lovely property, great location - excellent holiday base
This lovely villa was home from home for our recent trip. All the facilities were excellent, and the owner was very helpful and communicative in making sure everything was planned for our arrival. The location was peaceful, the villa beautifully furnished and an added bonus was the good quality WiFi and English Sky - we even got to watch THE Royal Wedding, which I was expecting to miss!!!! Have visited the area before - so we knew we would like the location, but this is the best we have ever stayed in. Fully recommended and we would like to be able to return.
Beautiful, well furnished holiday house on a lovely complex
My wife, daughter and I have just returned from a wonderful stay in Casa Tiwi. The above heading does not really do justice to this house, it is more like a home than a holiday house.
. Wonderfully furnished with everything you could need. Everything worked perfectly, TV, DVD player, washing machine, microwave, dishwasher et al. Which is something I am rarely able to say from previous holidays
The weather was very hot, so the air conditioning and blinds were very useful for keeping the house cool. The house was spotless when we arrived and the three lovely en suite bathrooms were great with an instant and constant supply of hot water even when we were all showering at the same time.
There are plenty of DVDs, books and games for people who want to stay in and beach or pool equipment for younger families, and for cooler times of year there was a good supply of blankets and hot water bottles to complement the quality bed linen.
Val de Milho golf course is a short drive (3 minutes) or 10 minute walk away and although not on the Villamoura scale it is a tricky 9 hole par 3 course but I did find it a bit expensive at 32 euros for 9 holes,a small bag of 5 old clubs and 5 old balls. Then found when I got back there is a bag of old balls in the cabinet in the lounge.
Carvoiero is a 6 or 7 minute drive away and quite a busy little town with little parking space, with every type of eating and drinking establishment available together with the usual tourist shops and a few small supermarkets but for more serious shopping there is an Intermarche supermarket 10 minutes away and more in Lagoa a few more minutes.
There are lots of beaches around Carvoiero but unfortunately not really any in walking distance
All in all this is a lovely villa on a lovely complex with pool,bar and restaurant close at hand with much much more 10 minutes away and from our experience I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending it to families or groups
Thanks for your lovely review, would love to have you as a guest again sometime in the future.
We're surrounded by top class golf courses. Slide and Splash water park is a 5 minute drive away. Zoomarine is a 15 minute drive away with dolphins and sea lion attractions, a funfair and its own waterpark.
There is a horse riding centre about 20 minutes drive away.
Lots of restaurants and bars in Carvoeiro town of every description. Several large supermarkets within a short drive.
Aqua shopping centre is a new outlet shopping centre in Portimao which is appx 15 mins by car.
