Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a lovely time and the house is one of the best we have ever stayed in. Love the fact that you have provided those extra touches – would love to come back. The weather was a bit hit & miss but the fire made it lovely and cosy. Loved the maid service, I felt very spoilt . Thank you for making it so welcoming.

This villa could be amazing but needs a little TLC

  • 2 of 5

There were some wonderful things about this villa. Firstly it has to be the cleanest holiday rental property we have ever stayed in which was brilliant. It was immaculate and the cleaner Mahlia came three times during our week stay! The kitchen is a cooks dream and is equipped with everything you could possibly need (equipment and condiments) so we did not have to shop for the basics as it was all taken care off. The showers were brilliant too with lots of hot water and fantastic water pressure and it was the perfect setting in the hills for a quiet stay.

Unfortunately the external of the villa and the outside amenities have obliviously been neglected for some time and this let the villa down. It is no longer as beautifully white washed and immaculate as the pictures of it show. The drive is un-maintained and has the appearance of a river bed which means extreme care is required when walking or driving up the steep hill to the villa entrance. Most disappointing of all was the pool and pool area. My partner and I love to swim and the pool was a key decider for us in choosing this villa. Even though we had freakishly and unexpected cold weather during our stay (an average of 14 degrees for a week in June!!!) I would still have used the pool as it appeared to be heated. Unfortunately the pool was filthy so even though the water was warm, we did not dare get into it. This was not just a few floating leaves... it was dirty all round the sides and the bottom of the pool with weeds growing around pool and the patio area surrounding the pool.

As I said at the beginning this review this villa could be incredible and it looks like when the photo was taken it was. In it's current condition it definitely is not luxury, but a little bit of TLC could make it that way again. It's obvious the owners have gone to great lengths to try and think of everything to make a visitors stay as lovely as possible which makes it such a shame that the little bit of neglect has let it down.

Fabulous Property Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

Cash Ninho was exactly what we had hoped for. Located above Monchique in beautiful surroundings. Plenty of space for the family to spread out (we were 4 generations) and also large communal areas for family meals. We all loved the pool, particularly our grandaughter who learned to swim this trip.

Also conveniently located for the beach (about 25 minutes drive to Portiamo) with Albufeira and Lagos about 40/45 minutes away. All 3 locations have very different things to offer. These were just the things that we did do and there were plenty of other areas to explore had he had more time.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Superb in all respects.

  • 5 of 5

The whole party were very impressed with every aspect of this villa. The kitchen was extremely well resourced with cupboard space, crockery and cutlery plus a wide range of condiments. Pride of place must be the stove with its 5 rings, hot plate, twin ovens and grill. Money has obviously been spent here. A real bonus was that the stove ran on gas, and not the ubiquitous electricity which is found in most Algarve rented properties, which makes cooking more of a lottery. The lounge was equally good, very spacious comprising stylish, comfortable furniture and a range of reading and video materials. Beds were also very comfortable and all bedrooms had ensuite facilities, three of which were unusually large. Once again fixtures had been chosen with an eye for quality. The children particularly took great delight in the pool and the plethora of inflatables (with foot pump), having at least 4 spells a day. The pool is unusually large for a villa measuring, 10X4 metres so a decent swimming length was possible. It is terraced as is the house, the ground floor having a particularly large area. This villa has no shortcomings in our view, quite the reverse in fact.

Wonderful, family friendly house!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic few days in this amazing property. It has a huge amount of space with ensuite bathrooms for every room. It is was beautifully clean and comfortable. For me it was perfect in that it was that rare thing - a house that is peaceful, rural and isolated yet within easy walking distance of several great restaurants!

There is a lovely pool (we paid extra for heating and so glad we did - it was wonderfully warm and we swam even on the cooler days). The area itself is stunning and there are plenty of places to explore nearby. There were also toys and DVDs to amuse the children which is always a bonus! I really recommend this property for a group of friends or a family group.

Relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house - spacious, modern and with an amazing view down the mountain all the way to the coast. The property is well maintained and has everything available that you need for your stay. Great location in the hills near lovely town of Monchique and with great range of restaurants at the end of the drive.

Thanks so much.

Peace, tranquility and everything you might need

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Casa Nino on a number of occasions. It is a wonderful place! Beautiful views to the coast, a great pool and equipped with everything you might need. It is a very peaceful place, with lots of privacy yet at the same time it is close enough to walk to two restaraunts. The property managers are always keen to help, and of course it is in Monchique which is a magical place itself. Thank you for letting us stay.
