About Ian Walker
We are a married couple who like a good standard of accommodation when on holiday. We decided to buy as we wanted a home from home where we felt relaxed with some home comforts. Everyone has a hectic life these days so we hope we can provide as many things as possible for you to relax and enjoy your holiday. I hope you like our home as much as we do!
Ian Walker purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Ian Walker chose Portimão
We had had previous holidays in this location and loved it so much we decided to buy a property! We have visited lots of resorts in the Algarve and found that the western Algarve in particular was more family friendly and unspoilt than some of the more central resorts. It has several things that appeals to us, the weather, lots of choice of restaurants and cafes and a good choice of beaches all within a few minutes drive and the golf courses. We also liked the fact that it is well served by several airlines all year round to Faro. Also you can visit different locations very easily we particularly like: Alvor, Praia da Rocha, Lagos and Carvoeiro each with its own merits.
What makes this Apartment unique
Oasis Parque is unique in the sense that it is a country club with excellent facilities and well maintained grounds and properties, yet within easy reach of various attractions and resorts. We visit our property on a regular basis to ensure it is well maintained and is kept to a high standard. We provide tennis rackets and lots of things for the beach and for those with children we have a travel cot, a booster seat, bottle steriliser and a high chair. The apartment is situated close to the swimming pool and is handy for the cafe but still maintains privacy. We have had plenty of positive feedback and have some clients that come back year after year.

Quiet, clean, convenient, beautiful...
I had a bit of trouble finding it at first, but I clicked the address link in the Home Away UK app, which doesn't have a space before the first '99'. There; if you're reading this now you know how to get to the best possible property you could hope for.
The location was perfect for us, a family of 5 with all the children under 10. It was safe, clean, well equipped, and comfortable. All the amazing places we saw were all within a 15 minute drive. At the end of the day, it was like coming home to your own personal space, away from the noise and busy hustle of the heavy tourist areas.
The owner is kind and helpful, and responds almost immediately to any questions or concerns.
10 out of 10! We'll be coming back ASAP!
Glad that you really enjoyed the place and look forward to you coming back
Gorgeous, spotless and well equiped.
Well placed to explore area. Car recommended. Oasis Parque is perfect for relaxing and peaceful family time. All communications with the owner were prompt and all instructions clear.
The garden area with sunloungers and bbq was lovely to have and eating in was easy due to well equiped kitchen. Beds very comfortable and lots of towels available.
The card key controled pool area was spotless (even after the ash fall from the fires) and no mad dash to save sunbeds went on.Despite it being August beds were always available until late morning.
We travelled as a family of four (two older teens) and all came back relaxed and rested. Perfect for us and would love to return.
Excellent apartment in a great location
We visited this apartment and Oasis Parque in early May 2018 and were very pleased with both. The apartment exceeded expectations and I really can't fault it. It was bright and airy, very clean and well maintained. The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of spare bedding and towels if needed. There is a utility room with extra bits and bobs, such as toys and cool bag, which were useful. There were additional oil filled heaters as well as the over-the-door air con/heat units for the cool nights and mornings. The TV had lots of English channels. Oasis Parque is in a lovely peaceful district just a few minutes drive from Portimão and Alvor (both well worth visiting time and again). The indoor and outdoor pools and surrounding areas were very clean and well maintained and there were plenty of sun loungers to choose from around the pools and in a small, hedged secluded area (and plenty of sunshine with temps of 25°C+ to enjoy). We were there early in the season, so the Country Club was very quiet and peaceful and we often had the outdoor areas to ourselves. I guess if you're there in July/August it would be a lot busier. The outdoor pools were too cold for me tho the kids were happy to go in and had a great time. The Jacuzzi was fab. There is a coffee shop/restaurant which local friends told me serves great English breakfast and is one of their favourite places to meet up for coffees mid morning. We arrived after 11pm, tired and thirsty and went to the cafe where we were warmly greeted and were able to buy some beer & G&Ts to take back to the apartment as well as some bottled water and milk for morning brews. There are several supermarkets within a few minutes drive to stock up on essentials. Overall, if you're wanting somewhere to stay for a relaxing break with on site food & drink yet close enough to beaches and shopping then this apartment on Oasis Parque ticks all the boxes. Even if you've not hired a car, taxi fares are cheap so it's no problem to visit any of the great places nearby. I know where I'll be staying next time I need an apartment in this area of the Algarve!
Thank you for your great review. It is always good to receive feedback so that we can make it even better. We do take pride in making it a home from home to ensure that our guests have a memorable holiday. We look forward to you visiting again.
Fantastic apartment on wonderful complex
What a wonderful apartment! A real home from home!
We came (still here at the moment) as a family of 5 -
X2 adults x2 children and 1 baby!
We settled here very quickly. The apartment has everything you should need- you couldn't fault it.
The oasis parque complex was ideal for us as we used the heated indoor pool everyday as it was a little warmer than the outdoor pool for the month of April. The little park on site was handy too for a little play time if you have children.
The beds are very comfortable and at night time it is very quiet making it easy to relax and wind down after each day.
The garden was a massive hit for us as it allowed our 10 month old to crawl around outside un harmed and enjoy the weather.
It's also a massive perk to have had a fast wifi connection to keep in touch with people and a wide selection of tv channels (for the children) to watch.
The location here is brilliant- close to the shops (we had a hired car- highly recommended)
which, we got fresh food from everyday.
Portimao shopping centre is also close if you are a keen shopper!
Beaches are within 15 mins drive away and are beautiful. Well worth a visit!
You have the lovely board walk too in Alvor if you are a keen walker.
We felt very safe here and the locals are very friendly.
This holiday destination and apartment is highly recommended and we would definitely look at returning here in the future without any hesitation.
Ian has been very informative and very pleasant to deal with and we thank you for letting us use your holiday home to create a lovely holiday that we have had and will still enjoy until it's time to head home.
a home away from home
We stayed at this apartment with our two toddlers for the first week of October. It is really a home away from home - all of the home comforts you need in the Portuguese sunshine. The apartment is really well presented, in a very safe and pleasant surroundings. The beaches at Alvor are about 10 mins drive away, and the shops in Portimao are about 3 minutes drive. Highly recommended for families or couples.
Lovely location and property. Well maintained and well appointed. We really enjoyed our stay.
There is choice of beautiful beaches from wide stretches of sand to small coves surrounded by cliffs within 10 mins drive at Alvor. Others close by are Praia da Rocha and Praia do Vau. The local coastline is spectacular and offers some of the best cliff walks in the Algarve with stunning views. Slide and splash waterpark is 15 mins drive near Lagoa.
With completion of the new motorway, Faro Airport is now only 45 mins drive. Lisbon airport is approx 2.5 hours away.
Within walking distance from Oasis Parque are a few friendly local bars and restaurants and a large supermarket. Alvor and Praia da Rocha about 5km away. Portimao Centro is approx 4km away with an extensive range of boutiques etc. The town of Lagos and its new marina are a 15-20 mins drive to the West. A visit to the historic town of Silves, about 30mins away is highly recommended as is a drive up to the mountain spa town of Monchique.
Cashpoints are available in Leclerc supermarket (10 mins walk), Alvor, Portimao and Praia da Rocha. Banks in Portimao and Praia da Rocha. Shops, restaurants and bars all within 10 minute walk.
