Mature couple, stayed for eight nights. Communication with Nigel and Luisa was very good. facilities as described, pleasant seating area and lovely pool.
The apartment is just a leisurely 15 min stroll from the busy marina, but is set in a lovely peaceful environment. The pool, which we had to ourselves most of the time, is literally 10 metres from the enclosed patio area, which was where we spent most of our afternoons and early evenings. The apartment itself is very spacious and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The welcoming pack was very much appreciated and unexpected. The owner, Nigel, was very easy to deal with when booking and answered all our questions very quickly. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return to this apartment in the near future.
We stayed here for a week in the middle of September. We had a nearly 3 year old and 4 month old with us. When we arrived there was a bottle of wine, rolls and ham which was a very nice touch. The apartment is modern and very well equipped and the dishwasher and washing machine were a godsend. There are lots of English channels on the tv and the wifi is excellent. There is air conditioning in the bedrooms but not in the living area. This wasn't really an issue as once you keep the windows opened and shutters closed it stays nice and cool.
The garden area has a table and chairs and also nice loungers for sitting by the pool. The pool is about 15ft from the gate which is very handy. The gate is nice and safe too. We always tied something around it aswell just to be extra cautious. As others have said, the pool is very cold but it didn't seem to bother my nearly 3 year old! There was never more than 2 or 3 other people around the pool so we mostly had it to ourselves.
There is a bar around the corner that serves food. We never had any but drink is cheap and they are very friendly and good for booking a taxi if you don't want to walk to the marina. Taxi costs between €3.40 and €5 in general.
The spar is about 8/10 minute walk away and is well stocked. There is another supermarket called jafers another 3 minutes walk and we found this cheaper and had more choice.
Near the spar there are a number of small bars that also serve snacks/sandwiches and breakfast. Both very reasonable. There is a restaurant called Martinellis in the same area that serves amazing food, lovely wine and very friendly staff.
The marina is about 15 minutes away but it is a nice walk. there are lots of nice restaurants here depending on what you like but something for everybody.
If you are not averse to walking and like peace and quiet then this place is perfect.
This is a great family sized apartment, walking distance to the marina and beach but the bonus for us with small children is the private walled garden by the pool so we know are safe and can't wander into the pool alone.
The apartment complex was very quiet and we had the pool to ourselves most days. Felt like a Villa at times!
The apartment is perfectly sized and the closest one to the pool. Very large family bathroom wth two sinks, bath/shower, toilet and bidet. Air con in both rooms, good sized, comfy beds and pillows and plenty of wardrobe space.
The garden area is perfect for catching the sun and also to 'contain' children safely so they can play without fear of them going into the pool.
The garden furniture has been upgraded since these pics were taken, very smart black/grey wicker table and chairs with large umbrella.
Can't complain at all here. Would highly recommend.
Comfortable apartment,pool could not be nearer,quiet usually,some days it felt like having our own private pool.Personally I would prefer a tumble drier to a dishwasher but not essential.100 metres to nearest restaurant or 10 minutes walk to local Spar and some cafe/bars.An easy 20 minute walk to the Marina with an excellent choice of bars and restaurants quite reasonably priced.I would definitely stay again.
This was our first time to Vilamoura but we have rented other apartments in other Algarve resorts for many years.
This apartment is exactly how the profile describes it. Its spotlessly clean and comfortable. Very spacious and bright and breezy.
The apartments are in lovely gardens with a great pool. Quiet and plush area of Vilamoura brilliantly located for the supermarket and shops/cafes etc.
My only 1 tiny gripe if I had to be pushed is that the pool wasn't heated but I appreciate this isn't always possible/practical and rare for pools to be so.
For the money this is an excellent choice to rent privately in Vilamoura. We would even return to this property in the future which we dont usually do as we like to do other things. We had a lovely time.
