Casalinda is a self-catering, modern, spacious and bright Townhouse (villa, semidetached unit) for holiday rental and WALKING distance to the Vilamoura Marina. Emphasising the 'walking distance' as there are not many properties in the area that are not this ideally located. The complex has a communal swimming pool and its surrounded by well maintained beautiful gardens.
Sleeps up to 6 and perfect set up for family with teenagers or the grandparents as upstairs there is one bedroom, bathroom and balcony so there is privacy if needed (the stairs that to go to the first floor are in the foyer and there is a door that can be locked at bottom of stairs so it gives complete privacy if required).
Downstairs there are 2 Bedrooms (1 double bed, 2 single beds and cot if required) with ample wardrobe space, 2 new bathrooms, one en-suite. Upstairs there is a very spacious area with one bedroom, a bathroom and balcony.
The single beds on the two of the bedrooms can be joined for couples. There is a cot for babies.
The Town house is bright, spacious and contemporary furnished.
It has an open plan kitchen/living/dining room, with sliding doors to 2 big patios that lead to the garden and swimming pool. The kitchen is big and fully equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, hob, oven, microwave, coffee machine, toaster, smoothie maker.
The dining room seats 6 and there is a high chair for babies. The kitchen counter has 3 high chairs.
There are international TV channels offering a variety of channels. There is a small library with about 20 books.
The main patio has a BBQ, table, chairs and 6 sun loungers. There is a smaller table on the dining room patio. The sun loungers you see on the main picture are just for the your usage. Swimming pool/beach towels are also supplied.
Best located unit in the complex as it offers privacy and at same time it is right next to pool (refer to the photos).
Very peaceful location surrounded by trees, with walking, cycling paths and golf courses (there are 5 golf courses in Vilamoura), 10 Minute walk to soft, sandy beach, casino and stunning Vilamoura Marina with its lovely restaurants, gorgeous shops and lively pubs. Water park nearby, great for kids. Excursions can be booked at the Marina and there is plenty to choose from.
Free Wifi and Satellite TV with over 100 channels. There is also a few selection of books.
Daily cleaning services provided at extra cost. If you are staying for 2 weeks there will be a 'mini' cleaning service provided after one week. The towels will be changed but not the bed linen.
The property is a villa/townhouse in a gated community consisting of 12 units. The majority of the units are not rented out and used by owners certain weeks of the year, so it does not get crowed, it has happened in the past that my clients have the whole of the complex communal areas to themselves.
The complex swimming pool is not heated and has the following measurements:
depth: shallow end 1m, middle 1.5m, deepest end 2.5m
There is no need to book a car as everything is within walking distance and if you want to explore the rest of Algarve, you can book excursions at the Marina.
If you do rent a car, there are two parking bays allocated to the unit inside the gated complex.
Its also close to the well know Vilamoura Golf courses and because the property is spacious and has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms it is ideal for 'golf' getaways.
I do recommend that you book your transfer from/to airport and have a very good contact which is Antonio Cardoso.
Antonio speaks English and he is very reliable. His prices are as follows;
€30/each way (up to 4 pax) and €45 (up to 6 pax), there’s a 20% surcharge for all collections between 21:00 and 06:00am.
Antonio also does transfers back and forth to the golf courses.
I supply 4 FREE Bike rentals from the Vilamoura Public Bikes system allowing you to benefit from the network of 32 stations, with a total of 150 bicycles. Each station includes attachment points to park bicycles.
The network covers the whole of Vilamoura, both its business/tourist and residential areas, and the system is designed to allow users to rent bicycles and return them to any station, therefore avoiding the need to go to a central point to collect or return them. There is a post just a 5 minute walk from the property. Bikes can only be used for 45 minutes at one time otherwise there is a fine. You can drop them at a bike stand and pick up another bike various times during the day.
