About Kevin McHugh
We bought the apartment in 2008 and have spent the last 9 years holidaying in the apartment. We have children who are 10 and 13 years old and we are really conscious of child safety and knowing how to ensure children enjoy themselves (and therefore allow parents to relax!) We spent a long time travelling around the Algarve before we settled on the village of Olhos D'Agua. It really is a beautiful village. Most of the rentals are families but also we have our fair share of couples, friends and retirees, with many return customers. A true testimony to the quality the apartment and resort offers.

Why Kevin McHugh chose Albufeira
Restaurants are fantastic Beaches are beautiful and provide an excellent opportunity to dine al fresco whilst enjoying breath taking views. The Portuguese people are second to none when it comes to family friendly atmospheres and nothing is too much when it comes down to customer service.

Very secure We will be back soon

Thank you so much for your kind words. We do strive to ensure your break meets your expectations. Hope to see you again soon!
Excellent Apartment, great location.
We have used HomeAway for several years and have never been disappointed, this year was no exception.
Kevin’s apartment was exactly as described. We found the king size bed very comfortable and also both bedrooms are spacious. The kitchen is well equipped with all the basics. The complex is very secure and has a nice pool area which was well used and had a good atmosphere.
The location within the town is ideal: just far enough from the centre to be quiet; just close enough to be convenient for amenities. Particularly important for a self-catering apartment, there are two supermarkets within a 5 minute walk. A car is not necessary here; a good local bus service will take you to explore places like Albufeira or Vilamora. There is a good selection of restaurants in Olhos d'Agua; several just at the end of the street.
Olhos d'Agua is a lovely bustling little town with a nice atmosphere but avoiding the high-rise feel of the bigger resorts. However, the beach is quite small and tends to get crammed with sunbathers, particularly when the tide is in. As an alternative, we preferred Falesia beach, surely the Algarve’s finest? Five miles of golden sand plus a café and sunbeds. Falesia beach can reached by a 15-20 minute walk, we would recommend asking locally for directions.
Kevin was very helpful throughout the booking process and the local representative was waiting for us on our arrival and gave us a nice welcome. Highly recommended.
Excellent location, lovely property
A very convenient location made our stay very easy. 5 minutes walk to a bakery and supermarket, a good choice of restaurants within 10 minutes walk.
Property was spacious, spotless and contained everything we could possibly need, swimming pool was perfect for my 4 and 7 year olds.
Property owner was very helpful and responsive to my questions beforehand.
A very easy and relaxing holiday.
Spacious appartment in good location
The apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped. The communal pool area was great, with a shallow toddler pool that was good for young children. A good selection of restaurants in walking distance. We really enjoyed our stay.
Lovely appartment, lovely area, great holiday!
The apartment is well equipped and contained everything we needed for our 2 week stay. The security was good to see and made us feel at ease when we were around the pool area and just in general. I was impressed with the pools and outside space, especially the grassed areas (comfortable to lay on if you could not get a sunbed) with trees providing some good shade. The reserving of sunbeds did happen so early risers will benefit here.
Kevin was very helpful with good communication which was much appreciated as this was the first time we had travelled without booking a package holiday. Kevin also arranged the transfers which was very handy. Tracy met us on arrival and gave us a tour of the apartment.
Of note the fans/blowers for the aircon units are placed on the larger balcony but around a corner so when they are venting hot air it does not vent onto somebody on the balcony. The balconies are placed to get the late afternoon and evening sun which was very pleasant
We did not hire a car and to be honest there is no need if you are going to remain in the local area. There are numerous restaurants, shops, bars and two supermarkets close by. The beach is about 8-10 minutes walk away but it did get very busy, however a short walk up the coast reveals little hidden beaches.
Our children made numerous friends during our stay so we did spend a lot of time around the pool soaking up the sun. Its true what people say, if your children are happy and enjoying their holiday you will too and we did enjoy it!
I would definitely return to Vista Das Ondas as it ticks all of the right boxes to make your stay an enjoyable one.
Thanks Dale for your kind words. We holiday in the apartment and resort every year and you are 100% correct. If the kids are happy, we are happy. Hope to see you again soon.
