Guestbook comments from the owner

What a fantastic place & location, so well equipped and situated.

Great being so close to the beach, restaurants & shops, especially with a two year old in tow.

We've had a wonderfully relaxed holiday & highly recommend staying in this apartment. A very special experience.

Thank you

Very well equipped and fabulous location.

  • 5 of 5

Would certainly recommend this property, a fabulous location just seconds from the beach and a perfect location within the old town. Not suitable for guests who struggle with stairs but was perfect for us 5 girls. Would certainly stay here again.

Truly Amazing

  • 5 of 5

There is so much I could write about - it was met and surpassed all my expectations of Ilbufeira and surrounding areas. Our excursions will leave so many great memories. This apartment in Old Town was the perfect location - you could walk to all shops and restaurants. The only hold back for those who have trouble doing stairs, there were three floors, but we four senior ladies had no problem. It as very clean, well equipped and comfortable beds. It was well decorated (we are all critical in all aspects of hotels, apartments) but rest assure, no one could complain. Jane was so patient with me and answered all my questions before arriving and everything she suggested worked out to perfection. I am compelled to highly recommend May, our driver who put up with all our questions. Once he picked us up at the airport (Jane’s recommendation). We were so comfortable with his driving and professionalism, we hired him for all our tours and actually booked him to travel to Spain for our second week. He always had so many surprises with his off the road (markets, countryside treasures) while taking us to where we wanted to visit. I would highly recommend him and brought back his family business cards for friends travelling to Ilbufeira. Very Great family man and makes travelling so much easier. His famous last words “this is your vacation - no worries and take your time”.

Thanks Jane and May

Owner's Response: We have had much 'hotter' weather this October, so sorry you felt it too hot to sit out. As it is the end of the season of course all showers will be looked at , if you had let us know while staying we would have popped down no problem. As it is an apartment and you go up stairs to it yes there are stairs, we actually where very pleased that 'two fish plaice' was up a level when the flooding of 'old town' Alburferia happened two years ago! The water came up to above the letter box! Thank you for your comments we continue to improve year by year with your help and feedback!

I really can't recommended this place enough! The apartment itself is amazing. Fully equipped everything you could ever need spotlessly clean! Bedrooms all include hairdryer their own mirrors which was a great bonus as their were 8 girls getting ready to experience the nightlife which is basically on the door step. Fans in every room. Even though the apartment location is directly next to beach bars and restaurants we could all sleep perfectly fine especially as the beds and bedding were so comfortable. Jane has been great at communicating made everything so easy for our holiday including transfers and provided all information. I cannot wait to book this apartment again. Thank you again for a fantastic holiday apartment and all your help.

Great family holiday!

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a ten day stay at two fish plaice. We were so sad to leave,a fabulous holiday for our family. Jane was fantastic from the moment we booked and made sure we were well looked after with transfers, meeting us at the house, helping with the safe and even driving myself and my baby boy to hospital! Nothing was a problem. Brilliant. The flat is so close to the beach which was great for two small boys and so many places to eat and drink nearby. No need for taxis unless you are wanting to go further afield. We walked to marina took maybe 20 mins and a lovely walk for everyone. The only down side which wasn't an issue for us was the noise from the nearby bars, but as we all slept very well after good food and sea air it didn't bother us at all. Definitely recommend to everyone!

Nearby you will find a super market,wine merchant,restaurants and bars and a taxi rank.

Below the apartment is an ice crem parlour! Next best thing to an Indian Resturant we think!

You will not be disappointed when you enjoy your first glass of wine or beer on the balcony terrace taking in the buzz of life below you.

If you have never been to Albufeira Old Town before, you will be amazed by the number of bars and restaurants, the quality of the entertainment, live bands and hospitality shown by the local Portugease.

The smell of piri piri chicken will fill your heart with glee.

We can now recommend this apartment for not only those wishing to party...but also families!

From one side of the balcony terrace you can enjoy a unique view of an unused brick built chimney which was part of

a former fish processing plant, the chimney is now a protected feature of the Old Town and homes a pair of storks which you may be lucky enough to see in the breeding season.

This amazing apartment has been LOVINGLY RESTORED & MODERNISED to provide first class accommodation for eight lucky guests.
