Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

4 of us arrived in Portugal on the 12th of August and stayed for a week. This is the 3rd time we have stayed in this apartment and definately not the last. It's like home from home for us. When you walk in to the apartment you can tell it is well looked after. It has a modern homely feel to it which we love, it's also very clean. It is situated approx 15 minute walk from the beach, bars and restaurants on the praća which is great. Tina is really helpful and answered any questions that we had, a pleasure to deal with. I would definately recommend anyone to stay in this apartment.

Thank you!!

Summer vacation with family

  • 4 of 5

Very nice apartment. Good location. Clean, good beds, air conditioning, TV, enough closets and nice little kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher. Small balcony with gas BBQ witch we used 3 times. Bigger balcony on top level for sunbathing and hang the beach towels. Apolonia is a great supermarket. Many nice restaurants. We had a rental car. We missed Wifi and a swimming pool for the kids.

We had a lovely time. Very relaxed. We went to Faro old town and Forum Algarve shopping mall. Every day to the beach. Sometimes the waves are challenging. We sure would come again to this apartment. Also the communication with the owner was excellent.
