“Faultless”

We had never been to Portugal before and were delighted with the location of this apartment.
It is a very spacious apartment including bath and shower. Very well furnished and spotless apartment. Kitchen had all utensils etc . Roof top pool was an added extra.
Welcome pack included which was great until we went the local supermarket. Amarcao do Pera has fantastic beaches and restaurants within 5 minutes walking distance.
We hope to return in the near future.
Jon and Caroline have been fantastic and nothing is too much trouble to ensure you have a pleasant and stress free holiday.
We hope to return as soon as we can.
The title says it all...Faultless!

“Very Modern Clean Comfortable Flat”
Reviewed 27 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

people found this review helpful

We have stayed here twice now and plan to return in February 2015
The flat is spacious, spotlessly clean with plenty of equipment. It is in a good location being about 5 minutes walk from the sea front. There is parking outside and a space underground, which would be really useful in the height of the season, when cars get hot if left outside.
We always go off season and this is one of the few flats we have found which face west, thereby bringing in the sun when the days start to get chilly. There is air con for when the days are warm. The balcony is lovely for breakfast, lunch and early evening drinks!
I have never met the owner, but he is very amenable and accommodating, always replies to emails and didn't mind a bit when I broke his teapot!

“Great apartment, well situated with all the 'mod cons'.”

This is a lovely, modern, spacious, very well equipped, nicely furnished and comfortable apartment that is conveniently situated for local beaches and amenities and also for exploring the wider Algarve. The agent (a British expat who lives locally) was there waiting for us when we arrived and she provided a very good ‘meet and greet’ service with lots of useful orientation tips. A generous welcome pack was provided, and the owners (Jon and Caroline) have also provided lots of useful information for days out, restaurants, etc. and there’s a whole library of films and TV channels if you fancy an evening in. Secure underground parking is great if you have a car. Ample bed linen, towels, tea towels, etc. and full size dishwasher and washing machine provided, with good sized clothes airer available for drying on the balcony. The air conditioning worked well and was very quiet, and the rooftop pool, was perfect for a cool dip after a hot day out, with views to the sea and surrounding area.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at this apartment. The apartment had everything- a home from home. Aoartment had satellite tv, films on hard drive, current books, parasols, sunbeds etc etc. Also very convenient to the centre, beaches, supermarkets and restaurants. Roof top swimming pool is the jewel in the crown! Great stay

“A great apartment!”

person found this review helpful

The apartment is situated a short walk away from the town and beach. We found the apartment clean and was very well equipped with everything we needed for our holiday. As we travelled at the end of October the weather wasn't always that great but the apartment had loads of films and games to keep our children amused on the rainy days.
The beach is golden sand and the sea very clear, we had an excellent stay and would go back again.

“What a great Apartment!!”

From the first contact to the final hand over of keys back to owner, I can attest to the following:
- Jon was Professional, informative, helpful, clear on pricing (no hidden costs)
- Kept contact via email on a "as you go" basis, every step of the booking & stay
- Apartment is in a modern security building, swimming pool on the roof & an allocated car spot in the lockup garage
- Owr contact person on arrival was super helpful / friendly, articulate and professional
- Apartment presented very well, with all mod cons & finishes, and extra owner touches for that special stay ie: Wine/beer/welcome fruit platter, Beach chairs/games, wood/coal for the outdoor BBQ, even some cleaning/washing products already available.
- Short 10mnt walk to beach/local shops/strip
We had a wonderful stay and I strongly recommend you to select this apartment for your Algarve trip... you will not be disappointed !

“Nice & convenient”
Reviewed 25 June 2013 for a stay in July 2011

The apartment is nice and clean and very close to all ammenities and the beach. We used the apartment as a base for travelling the Algarve to look for a villa to buy. Furniture in the lounge could be a bit more comfortable.
