“A lovely apartment in a good location”
Reviewed 7 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Nigel & Rosie’s ground floor apartment in Guia is for their own use as well as rentals and reflects an obvious taste for quality, being spacious, very well appointed and well maintained.
Whilst there are a number of fine & varied restaurants within walking distance, the kitchen has every possible modern appliance if required, with a large dining table in the lounge and another on the covered patio (plenty of loungers) that opens onto a small private garden.
Guia is fairly centrally located on the Algarve and well placed for the many and different attractions, for which we find a car essential. There was plenty of parking space when there (October) and also more secure underground gated parking, though not used by us.
The apartment itself is very secure, having external roller shutters to all windows, an alarm system and a small safe, which can be set to a combination of your choice.
We did not use the leisure complex but saw that it was equipped as described and well maintained.
There are many other facilities, per the property description, and suffice it to say we would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and would return to this better class of rental when next in the Algarve.

This apartment was great, the owners had left a handbook covering absolutely everything from instructions for all the electrical equipment to reviews on all the local restaurants. the accommodation was clean and tidy and really accessible.

Highly recommended..

“Ideal location excellent facilities and very comfortable”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Had a wonderful stay at this apartment, located in the centre of Guia with its fantastic restaurants,proximity to great beaches and the Algarve shopping centre. The apartment has a lovely sunny terrace/garden and has been tastefully decorated throughout. The kitchen is equipped to a high standard should you want to eat in. There is a good dining area inside but we made more use of the dining area on the terrace due to the great weather. A very comfortable apartment which we would highly recommend.

“Excellent apartment in a brilliant location”

We’ve stayed in this apartment several times over the past few years and we keep returning because it offers everything we need for a self catering family holiday.
The property is spotless, well-equipped and decorated to a high standard. It’s the ideal size for a family of four. The decking area with sun loungers is perfect for chilling out after a busy day. The outside dining area is great for al fresco breakfasts and dinner.
Guia is a lovely village, and the best chicken piri piri restaurant - Ramires - is a 5 min walk. The nearest beaches are Gale, Lourenço (has a summer time lounge bar on the beach) and Evaristo (home of fish restaurant of the same name), all within a 10 minute drive. There’s a little shop within a 2 minute walk from the apartment that stocks essential items and the Portuguese owners are very friendly.
Guia is centrally located for all major attractions and a short drive away from Zoomarine, Slide and Splash, Aqualand and Almancil karting to name a few. Vilamoura and Portimao are less than 30 minutes drive. We’ve previously driven to Sagres and also crossed the border into Spain (a little over an hours drive in each direction). Algarve shopping centre (5 minute drive) is great for a bit of retail therapy, and Continente supermarket sells just about everything!
Our children love this place and we always thoroughly enjoy our holiday!
