Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment is so well-equipped and comfortable – and the first time I’ve ever had enough hangers! Had originally dismissed the complex as I feared it might have been too far from Carvoeiro, as I have problem with my knees and hips. However this was not the case, we did walk and on other days walked to a local bar, ordered a drink and simply called a taxi!



Truly enjoyed the peace and quiet and the lovely gardens. Trevor also hugely enjoyed the roof top BBQ at lunchtimes, where the stunning views just enhanced the experience. Thank you for a wonderful time – we’ll be back!

Lovely apartment, beautiful complex

  • 5 of 5

I have recently returned from a nine night stay at this gorgeous apartment with my partner and three year old son.

Prior to, and after booking, I had frequent contact with Tessa, the owner, and she always responded within a couple of hours, giving me confidence in my booking (this was my first time using HomeAway) and answering any questions I had.

Full details of the apartment, and directions, were sent in good time prior to departure, as were the keys.

The apartment itself was spotless and spacious (and I had my own bathroom, so this made me very happy!). The owners had thought of everything to make their guests comfortable, and it was really appreciated.

The beds were comfortable, the showers were hot and powerful, and the kitchen had everything you could need.

The roof terrace is beautiful and has a BBQ, but we just didn't get time to use it.

The complex is pristine, and feels very safe. There are beautiful flowers growing outside the apartments and they are stunning.

The apartment is about a five minute drive into Carvoeiro, and we never had a problem finding somewhere to park. I'd say that it would take about 20-30 minutes to walk but we didn't attempt this.

Carvoeiro is a lovely place; some great restaurants (we especially like Ele and Ela), and the square comes alive at night with entertainment. My son called the square 'the disco' and loved to get up and dance with other children.

Some other highlights include...

Sunset clifftop walk near the lighthouse at Rocha Brava;

Mount Foia, the highest point in the Algarve (nice and breezy up there so great on a really hot day);

Boat trip from Benagil to visit numerous caves;

Silves, and it's castle;

Praia de Marinha Beach, and it's secret beach.

We visited somewhere different every day and feel that there's so much to see, so it looks like we'll have to return.

Huge thanks to Tessa and family for allowing us to stay.

Claire, Warren and Henry (Bispham, nr Blackpool, Lancashire).

Owner's Response: Thank you Claire for your lovely comments. It is not often that we have much correspondence with our guests, but I'm glad I was able to put you at ease with your booking. It is always a pleasure to know that our guests have not only enjoyed staying in our apartment and the complex, but have also been out and about and visited some of the many places of interest. We hope that you'll return soon.

Just the Ticket!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived very late and were relieved to find the apartment very easily. After a good night’s sleep we ventured out to find the supermarket. The owner had recommended Jumbo to be one of the cheapest (and for petrol too). Once we had food and drink everything else was a breeze. Relaxed by the pool where the kids (7 & 9) had a great time and made new friends. Found several great beaches, although finding a parking space wasn’t easy. We didn’t eat out much and enjoyed the evenings having a BBQ on the roof terrace. The apartment itself was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and superbly furnished. The kitchen had everything we needed. A great holiday hope to return soon.

A PLACE TO RELAX AND ENJOY

  • 5 of 5

This has been one of the most relaxing holidays we have had in a long time. We liked the fact that the complex gates locked so we were able to relax and really enjoy our holiday whilst the kids played in the garden and pools (thank you for use of the beach and pool toys – saved us a fortune as normally we’d leave them behind). Can definitely recommend A Rede and Oasis restaurants.

We’ve been back a month and are just looking at dates for next summer. We can really recommend staying here if you’re looking for an easy, uncomplicated and relaxing holiday with children. Our kids loved it – as they didn’t have us checking up on them every 5 minutes and made lots of new friends. We tried several restaurants in Carvoeiro but the best had to be ‘Oasis’ – went there twice!

The best holiday we have had in a long time. Roll on summer 2017.

A wonderful relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had been recommended Carvoeiro by some friends as we wanted a holiday we’d not been before, which had good restaurants and bars but not the clubs and pubs associated with most resorts. Carvoeiro was just perfect.

The apartment was just what we wanted and absolutely ideal for the 4 of us. Large rooms with lovely comfortable furniture and with plenty of space both inside and out. Fully fitted kitchen with everything for our needs – made a change to have a proper oven and hob and not just 2 rings!

Loved breakfast on the terrace in the morning listening to the world wake up and enjoyed BBQ’s on the roof. Walked to several of the local restaurants and into the town – Really enjoyed El and Ela and Rosa’s Bar in Sesmarias, where we couldn’t believe the price of beer – cheapest we found on holiday!

The owners must be very proud to own this property it is one of the best we have ever stayed in. They have obviously taken a great deal of trouble to ensure that their guests have everything they might need on their holiday. It is a fantastic property on an amazing complex in a great location. Met some lovely people and are looking forward to going back again. Thank you for letting us stay we had the most relaxing and wonderful time.

Just what the doctor ordered

  • 5 of 5

Lovely modern apartment and well equipped. Chose a ground floor apartment this year for the outside space and much easier with the kids. Great sun trap just in front of the apartment and plenty of shade on the terrace and ideal for watching our lot in the pool! Had a small problem with the TV, spoke to a lovely Dutch lady who with a quick call got it sorted! A real mix of people on this small complex from couples to families of all ages – best thing, everyone was so friendly and the kids had a great time which in turn made our holiday so much more relaxing. Just what the doctor ordered!!!!

Definitely One to Recommend……..

  • 5 of 5

Being in the travel industry, I have stayed in many different types of accommodation and in some bizarre locations. This accommodation was a random choice and I have to say it was very good. To coin the phrase 'it did exactly what it said on the tin' is incredibly accurate. Modern, clean and comfortable and in a very good location.

Booking was simple and the owners really helpful. Clear directions and information on the apartment was received well in advance of the start of my holiday. The apartment had up-to-date information on things to do/see locally and further afield.

I know this reads like an advert, but such is my job, this review is to let anyone reading this know that not only is Carvoeiro and the Algarve a lovely place to visit, but this is a truly lovely apartment and complex to stay in. A definite recommendation to anyone thinking of booking their holiday here, you won’t be disappointed.
