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.
Pool / Spa
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Couldn't get over the size of the apartment, we normally do hotels but this time we fancied a wee change, and glad we did, totally well looked after apartment, clean, and all and more in the great kitchen, everything is within walking distance beach, bars / restaurant's, some nice eateries close by, although literally minutes from the main road the apartment was quiet and we enjoyed our sleep and rest, certainly would have no hesitation in recommending a stay here or rebooting a break for ourselves again.
Thanks Kevin for a very enjoyable experience
Thank you for your kind words!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the apartment. The complex and resort are indeed a bit of a hidden gem. We strive to ensure your well deserved break is as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.
We hope to see you back as soon as possible!
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.
Lovely apartment, really enjoyed our stay. Everything we needed and in a great location for the local town.
Stayed for ten days and had great relaxing time. Kevin gave us loads of information let us check out later on our return spit on. The apartment is in a great location everything is within walking distance great restaurants and bars a little gem in the algarve will be back again.
