Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear David,

Just wanted to give you some feedback from our recent holiday - we had a very enjoyable stay, everything went smoothly from the directions from Faro via a taxi to our departure. The villa was well equipped with any minor problems very swiftly addressed by Sam. We ate out using some of the restaurants recommended by you or cooked for ourselves following purchase of fresh fish & veg from the market. Having close access to supermarkets was a bonus as our group likes to enjoy breakfast & lunch at the villa when possible while enjoying the sunshine. We may well wish to return to your lovely villa in the next year or so - perhaps you may even offer a discount. Please pass on our gratitude to both Sam & Steve for their advice & support when required - much appreciated.

This is the second time the family have stayed at this villa, it is fantastic property with everything you need. We will be back again as a perfect place to explore this part of the Algarve & Fuseta allows you to experience the real Portugal. I could not recommend this Villa enough and thanks David & Liz for another fantastic holiday.

Perfect Safe Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were well impressed with the villa. The owners are very nice and take pride in their holiday home. It is very well equipped from the garden to the kitchen. Rachael (from the UK), who meets and greets for the owners, is very nice and speaks fluent Portuguese. The beach is only a ten minute walk from the villa, and the train station is less! My family are already looking at dates for our return. I could not recommend it enough for families.

Spacious and well equipped villa

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with 4 adults and 2 children and had beautiful weather except the last day. In the villa we found everything we needed. The swimming pool was small but enough for us and the garden was lovely for sunbathing and playing for the children. We loved the BBQ. Satisfied as we were I sent an email on the fifth day to the owners: "After the beautiful weather (till now) it's time to let you know that we are excited about the (very) spacious villa and well equipped kitchen. So we enjoy our stay here very much, the (grand)girls ( 4 and 3) were immediately delighted with the unexpected toys inside and outside, and village, ferry and beaches are easy to reach and pleasant to spend leisure. In short, it meets our expectations ( and more). The reception and information we got from Sophie were very helpfull.

It's a pity we have just 2 days left..."

Lovely holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely holiday and would go back to this property but feel I should mention a couple of things so potential renters are not disappointed. The property was spacious with lovely terraces and well equipped. The wifi worked well most of the time and we were left a lovely starter food hamper which included a bottle of wine and beer. The representative was very welcoming and helpful and so was the owner when we had a problem with the alarm system. We were a little disappointed when we arrived to see that a block of apartments had been built in front of the property and therefore blocking out the views advertised on the villa site (the pictures should be changed). However, you could still see the sea to the side when on the second floor terrace and from the rooftop you could see over the block of apartments to a lovely view. Also there was no shower in the master/family bedroom there was a curtain and provision for a shower on the tap but no shower, and with eight adults wanting showers it put pressure on the showers in the other two bathrooms especially as the tanks only held enough hot water for 2/3 quick showers. Beds were very hard but this is often the case with rentals, a shame really when memory foam mattresses/toppers are relatively cheap. The only other thing I will say is to be careful to make sure the curtains are closed in the family bedroom when dressing as one of the security camera's is positioned to face the window. Fuseta is a lovely quiet place to stay and the train to Ta vera was especially nice. All in all a lovely holiday and with just a couple of things that if put right, would make it perfect! I would recommend the property to friends and relatives.

Holiday 6th - 18th May 2009

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on our holiday last year. This villa is certainly luxious and defintely more spacious than any other we would have stayed at. The house itself was like walking into a family home from home with a mediterrean twist. Anything we needed for ourselves or the kids was there, very clean and very well maintained. The property and area itself was very safe and we had no qualms at any stage about our childrens safety or security which meant that Mum & Dad had a very relaxed holiday. Resturants, shops etc. within walking distance. The kids loved the train trip into nearby Fuzeta which was an adventure in itself - again safety not an issue. Customer services second to none. Also great to deal with Irish owners who understand needs and wants of the irish customer/family. HIghly recommend!! Will be back!!

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Spent one week with my family in this beautiful spacious villa last October (7th to 19th October 2009). The property is maintained to a very high standard and is spotlessly clean. The private pool is really nice and there are lots of things to in the area. We were just a short train journey away from Taveria and could walk to the beach in less than five minutes if we got bored of the pool. We had a lovely relaxing time and would highly recommend the venue to other families. Can't wait to return - hopefully in 2010.
