About Karen Chalmers

We are first time owners of this 2 bed luxury apartment build completion in 2009. We had intended to only keep it for personal and family use, hence the homely and luxurious furnishings. However events forced us to offer rentals and we really enjoy getting to know our guests and hearing their holiday explorations and experiences. We live in England in a village so were smitten on our first visit to the village of Cabanas.

Karen Chalmers purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Karen Chalmers chose Conceição

We fell in love with the area on our first visit due to the location and lack of commercialism. We love the local cuisine at the local restaurants and cafes, the locals are all so friendly. Walking on the beach is amazing and equals many beaches we have visited all over the world! It is only 30-40 mins drive from Faro and very central for Golf courses and the beach.

What makes this apartment unique

The minute we arrive we feel like we are at home, as many of our guests have also commented. We pride ourselves on our luxury beds and linen and providing little extras to make your holiday more enjoyable. Every guest has told us what a fantastic holiday they have had and we get many repeat bookings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This felt like a home away from home - greater than our expectations. We have already booked again

L & H London

BR Bedfordshire

We had a fab week. The weather!

Your apartment and the location were perfect.

Cabanas beach is a favourite of all three of us now!

CM, Notts.

Every detail was accurate. It really is luxury, the pictures do not do it justice. We all had a fabulous fortnight and will be booking next year.

D & F Clapham

We can't wait to go again. Cabanas is a lovely village beautiful restaurants for all ages. Our kids were totally happy so that made it for us. The train ride to the water park was great.

Last year we said we could do with more beach chairs and now the owners have put 6 plus a couple for the kids and light ones for the beach. There is nothing else they could improve on.

5 Star in every way.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment came recommended by a relative and it totally lived up to our expectations. We found the property 5 star in every way, clean and well maintained. Every thing that one would need was provided by the owners, and the swimming pool was excellent. All E mails were responded to quickly and on return from our hols. the bond was refunded promptly. We would not hesitate in recommending this property to friends and family. There is a supermarket and restaurants in close proximity, and many more in Cabanas and the ones we tried were first class.

Modern, clean & pleasant

  • 5 of 5

Two week stay in early summer. The apartment is very well maintained with good quality furniture and fittings. The place has a homely feel rather than a lived-in holiday let which can sometimes be the case. WiFi which now seems sadly a necessary part of modern life was a good bonus & essential for teenagers! Front and rear balconies provide good options to avoid, if you wish, the high sun or for when the pool area or neighbours' evening celebrations are a little noisy. To be fair this wasn't common and the area was generally quiet, when we did visit the pool we didn't struggle to secure a sunbed - might not be the same in high summer but the apartment provides its own chairs, beds etc.

Cabanas is a great location which we've been to before - plenty of choices of places to eat, something to suit all tastes and the local people are extremely friendly. The beaches are stunning, we tended to drive out to a favourite quiet location but Cabanas beach will not disappoint. Though it's a bit of hike down to the boat taxi on a hot day.

Great Out of Season Break

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully furnished & equipped - far superior to other places we have stayed. Very relaxing sitting around the large pool. Weather was a bit mixed on a couple of days (it was October!) but still plenty to do as the local shops and restaurants were all open despite being "out of season". Surprising number of restaurants so we tended to take pot luck - no disappointments and very good value for money.

Avoiding the school holidays is certainly cost effective and didn't seem to impact our desire for relaxation at all. Would definitely recommend to friends (but only after we had chosen our weeks!).

Amazing time

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic week in Portugal. It was our first visit and will not be our last. The apartment was absolutely fantastic and you could not fault anything. The pool area was spotless and was never too busy. The restaurants and bars down in Cabanas were all great offering excellent food and all reasonably priced. A lot had free WiFi which was great ax we had our 13yr old son with us. We did not hire a car but arranged through the owners a private pick up to and from the airport which worked out great. Taxi down to Cabanas only cost 5€ which we thought was pretty reasonable too. Just can't fault anything about this holiday other than we wished we had stayed for longer!

Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

We spend 14 great days in Cabanas and surrounding areas. The accommondation ist high standard. The equipment, facilities and furnishing are complete and we missed nothing. A supermarket, money-maschine and post-office can be reached in few minutes by foot. The promenade with good restaurants at the water side are about two kilometers away. We had a rental car all the time and recommend this for a longer stay. The sandy beach is right for families with children in every age.
