About The Owner

When you live in Canada, you need to be chasing the sun at any opportunity.

Portugal is one of the handful of countries I really enjoy spending some time every year.

The choice of Portugal fits with all of the attributes I look for in an holiday abroad such as being friendly, safe and modern in addition to being affordable with good weather and food. Culture, history and beauty are other factors I consider.

I like it so much that I have purchased accommodations for myself when visiting and to make them available to other visitors for the remainder of the year.

Quarteira (Search Property Ref:P8522) and Vilamoura (Search Property Ref:P14562) in central Algarve were chosen due to its proximity to the airport and the highways heading to Lisbon and its great beaches and surroundi

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008

Why The Owner chose Loule region

As I mentioned above, Portugal is one of a handful of countries that our family choose to spend part of the year. Quarteira is the location of one of the residences I stay when visiting this beautiful country in the Winter months. I like its simplicity, convenience and location. With supermarkets and the daily fish and vegetable market very close by and the peaceful but colorful environment created by all the foreigners spending part of their winter there.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, convenience and comfort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you so much for the few days spent in your apartment - everything went very smoothly and we had a great time in the Algarve - thanks again". J. Neves, S. Africa October 2012



"We really enjoyed our time in your accommodation. It is very conveniently located and was very suitable for our needs. Although it was cloudy and wet for some of the time we were able to have a really good break and came home feeling refreshed. We enjoyed many long walks .

We would be very happy to recommend your apartment - entrance not great looking but inside made up for it". J. Peden, UK October 2012



"Quero felicitá-lo pelo bonito apartamento, bem decorado, com tudo o que é necessário, desde o wc, cozinha com todos os utensilios e electrodomésticos, Achei o congelador um pouco pequeno para 4 pessoas,mas geri as compras doutra maneira e funcionou, a internet e a tv por cabo, ar condicionado, foi tudo excelente, as camas e roupas tudo bom, e muito limpo".

Fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at this property! We arrived early before the appartment was ready but the cleaner allowed us to drop our bags and change in to our beach clothing which we thought was very kind. When we returned, the appartment was very clean and well equipped.

It is very close (less than a 2 minute walk) to a lovely sandy beach, which stretches for miles with lots of cafes and shops. We stayed with 2 our little girls who also loved it, there was even a body board and a bucket and spade to dig in the sand, (we left a few little toys there just in case somebody else comes after us with little children).

A supermarket and a bakery are on the ground floor of the building with a good selection of food and drink but be aware that they do not allow you to take rucksacks in to the store with you!

There are too many restaurants to choose from on the sea front so we can't say which is the best but we enjoyed our meals out at the places we visited.

We have already recommended this appartment to our family and we are planning to return in two years time.

Just back from our second stay at Ray's lovely apartment.

As always this apartment ticks all the boxes. Clean and well equipped(nice new sofa beds), right on the doorstep for the beach,eating out and the supermarket/shops.

Once again Odette was on hand to answer any questions we had.

We will be booking again for next year.

Many thanks to Ray and Odette.

Very nice apartment in a central location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very well equipped with everything needed for a self catering holiday. It was bright, clean and spacious with plenty of seating room. The wifi had very good speeds.

The communication from the owner was excellent right from the start of booking the holiday and he provided us with links to plenty of information in his emails.

Just around the corner there is a good supermarket with everything you would need. It is centrally located, so plenty of places around to eat, drink and shop.

The nearby beach was really nice to spend time on or just to walk along the promenade. Villamoura is only a pleasant 45 minute stroll and well worth visiting or you could take the bus from the nearby bus station very cheaply. Or a taxi from the bus station.

As the apartment does have such a central location the traffic noise from early in the morning is apparent.

If you are looking for a holiday with everything on your doorstep then I would highly recommend this lovely apartment.

Great return visit

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to the apartment in Quiterria and it felt like a home from home . It is a fantastic apartment for a couple very modern and clean. It is about 50 yards from the beach and all your restaurants and bars. We will definitely return here again.

First time on owners direct.

  • 4 of 5

First impression was it was a bit smaller than i expected but actually found it to be comfortable and being central to everything you need literally 100 yards from the beach and shops just outside the apartment after a couple of days it did start to feel quite homely and i am probably just being picky but it really was a good base for our two weeks in Quarteira.

Owner's Response: Hello, Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed it. I know the first impression of the building is not the most impressive ( a combination of poor condominium administration and economic issues) and does not relate to the apartment itself. Its a safe area and as you said very handy for the beach and shopping. Thank you, Ray
