2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Apartment in Old Town Albufeira, Central Algarve
About Bobby Duffin
My wife and I are both semi retired and spend a lot of time travelling. Our family are all grown up and are in their twenties. We visit Albufeira about once a month, and love the place. It really is a second home to us but we have decided to rent it out during the summer season as we are not over then.
Bobby Duffin purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Bobby Duffin chose Albufeira
When we decided to buy a home overseas there was only one place we were interested in and that was the Algarve. Being only 2 or 3 hours from the UK and with the same time zone was a big factor. With low cost flights every day and the beautiful beaches, climate and the friendly Portuguese people, there really was no other country we considered. We looked at a lot of property along the whole Algarve but when we viewed this apartment we decided it was for us straight away and signed for it there and then. It is in a nice quiet area but only 5 minutes to the beach and Old Town Square. There is nothing as nice as sipping a glass of vino tinto on the balcony at sunset and watching the fishing boats lights flickering on the sea, and the nightly catch is available in the restaurants the next day.
What makes this Apartment unique
Near to beach and near to the Old Town Square with all the entertainment but far enough away to be nice and quiet. There is a bus stop 20 metres away but everything you need is within walking distance so no car is required. A well stocked supermarket is just round the corner, 2 mins away.
Minimum age of primary renter:25
Max guests:4 (sleeps up to 4 adults)
To comply with the Rental License the maximum number of guests permitted is 4. The management will cancel a booking if there are more than 4 guests.

100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Great spot for the family
We stayed five nights at this property and Bobby was hands down the best owner we have ever dealt with for any VRBO. His communication was amazing and he always responded in a timely fashion. The apartment itself was great, very close to the beach and old town. Would recommend this unit to anyone visiting.
This was the first time that we had done this type of holiday having always been on package holidays and I was a bit nervous about things going wrong. However I had nothing to worry about as it couldn't have gone more smoothly. We booked the transfers through Bobby and the taxi company were there waiting for us at the airport. The apartment was lovely, spacious, spotlessly clean and had everything that you could possibly need. It's ideally situated in a quiet area but close enough to walk to the beach, marina and old town. It was our first time in Albufeira and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We did the caves and dolphin boat trip, Zoomarine and the highlight of the trip was the Alsafari sunset tour which was an absolute blast. This has been our favourite holiday so far and we would definitely love to return again. Thanks Bobby!
Had a great 2 weeks at Bobby's apartment. The apartment is well appointed and all the appliances are high spec and work well. The apartment was very clean and the interim clean was well above par. The apartment is spacious with plenty of balcony space which catches the morning sun so when you want some cool in the evening it is in the shade. The apartment is at the top of a hill so gives superb views, the downside of this is the walk back from the Old Town and the beach but after 2 weeks of doing this fitness certainly improves. The beach and Old Town are about 10 minutes walk from the apartment so you are close enough to enjoy them without all the noise and bustle. The addition of beach towels was also very good as there was no need to worry about getting them dry to pack. Bobby was a very good host and even allowed us a late check out as we had a late flight, he also co-ordinated with the agent in Albufeira when our outbound flight was delayed. A great holiday and if we were to visit Albufeira again we would select Bobby's apartment as our first choice.
The apartment was in a lovely location a good distance from the hustle and bustle of the town and beach.
There are several different routes to get you into the hub of things and mostly only takes about 10 minutes.
The security at the apartment was quite impressive and you felt safe and secure at all times.
The furnishings are of a high standard and great effort has been made to make you feel.
Portugal is a fantastic holiday location with great beaches and scenery.
But the best thing is the friendliness of the Portuguese people and the amazing food...
If you like fresh fish or shellfish then this place is heaven for you.
I thoroughly recommend the area and the apartment .
Perfect location - all amenities easily accesible. Excellent accommodation.
Spent a very relaxing week in Albufeiro - the accommodation is an immaculate apartment that is well equipped and comfortable.
Wonderful Condo in Albufeira
We had a wonderful vacation and so enjoyed our stay in your beautiful condo. It is equipped with everything one would need. The beds are comfortable, the condo is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The room sizes are very good with a balcony off of each room. The bathrooms are lovely and the air conditioning works very well. There is a lovely swimming pool to enjoy too. We look forward to staying here again in future. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a great rental in Albufeira.
The main Old Town beach is 5 minutes walk away, there is a lift to take you to the beautiful golden sand if you don't want to walk down the steps. The Marina is a 10 minute walk away with lots of restaurants to enjoy and watch the world go by.
Faro airport is 30 minutes away, we can advise and put you in touch with transfer companies that we have used and car hire companies that are UK based.
The Algarve is only about 80 miles from one end to the other and the property is right in the middle so everywhere is easily accessible.
There are about 14 water parks and amazing beaches over the full length of the Algarve. There is a bus stop 30 metres away to many of these and ticket shops to book trips nearby.
