Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Wonderful spacious and clean villa in a lovely part of the Algarve
Four generations of one family enjoyed a wonderful 2 week holiday in this lovely villa. So relaxing around the super pool and very spacious inside. A few good local restaurants nearby and a well stocked supermarket. Hexagon and Oregano restaurants in Sesmarias, where the villa is located, definitely worth a visit. Carvoeiro is a 35 minute walk and is a lovely town. Ferragudo and Silves also worth a visit. A car is not essential but if you want to see a lot of the area it would be useful, we used Uber taxis which were reasonably priced and reliable. We used Sunline transfers to get from the airport to the villa and found them very reliable.We would highly recomend the villa and would definitely book it again if back inthe area.

Wonderful villa
Had a wonderful week in this immaculate villa which was spacious, very clean and contained everything we needed and more. Lovely grounds and pool. We enjoyed playing table tennis and there were many areas to relax in the grounds, giving the option of shade if desired. The information folder within the villa is very detailed and helpful and the owner Debbi was so helpful in her emails prior to arriving at the villa. A number of restaurants a short walk away and a small supermarket just round the corner. Carvoeiro town 20-30 mins walk away depending on your walking pace. Beaches stunning and caves definitely worth a visit. We used taxis on a number of occasions and found them to be reasonably priced. My daughter summed up Casa Jovic by saying ‘a dream come true’.

Merveilleuse villa 5 étoiles
Nous avons passé deux semaines de rêve à Casa Jovic... La réservation s'est déroulée sans aucun problème, le contact avec la propriétaire anglaise est excellent, elle répond à vos mails en moins de 24h et envoie, une fois le règlement effectué, une documentation complète sur la location, les facilités, l'accès, la récupération des clés etc. Le paiement est sécurisé et aucun problème dans les arrhes, caution et frais réels. La maison est idéalement située à Sesmarias, quartier résidentiel entre Carvoeiro et Ferragudo (10 minutes en voiture), à 45 minutes de l'aéroport de Faro via autoroute, avec un petit supermarché à 3 minutes à pieds et un hypermarché à 10 minutes en voiture. Nous n'avons été gênés par aucun problème de voisinage. La location d'une voiture est conseillée pour pouvoir visiter les alentours. Sur place, vous avez le contact d'une "intendante" qui gère la maison et vos éventuels problèmes ou demandes. La maison comporte 4 chambres spacieuses dont une suite parentale avec jacuzzi. Les trois autres chambres ont également des salles de bain ou d'eau attenantes. Toutes les chambres sont impeccables, ultra confortables avec une super literie. La maison dispose également d'une grande salle (grande table, TV écran plat, wii, wifi, lecteur DVD....) et d'une cuisine entièrement équipée (lave-linge, lave-vaisselle etc... en parfait état de marche). Le ménage est réalisé plusieurs fois par semaine avec changement des serviettes et draps. Sur les extérieurs, la piscine et le jardin sont très bien entretenus et il y a tout le nécessaire pour en profiter largement : nombreux transats (8), deux tables de jardin, une table de ping pong (n'oubliez pas vos raquettes non fournies), un super BBQ... Le jardin n'est pas très grand (il fait juste le tour de la maison) mais cela suffit largement. Au total cette maison est vraiment digne d'un 5 étoiles, la propriétaire est géniale et vous pouvez la louer les yeux fermés, c'est d'ailleurs ce que nous referons l'année prochaine!

Fantastic Accomodations - Perfectly located, spotless, with fine amenities!
A small group of friends and I traveled to the Algarve and stayed at Casa Jovic. This home is perfectly located and central to all points, yet quietly removed and situated on a hillside with other beautiful homes. It's incredibly well maintained both inside and outside and quite spacious. Bedrooms had large ensuite baths and perfectly comfortable beds and linens. The main bedroom has an expansive veranda on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool. The Living room is large and comfortable with double doors opening straight out onto the pool deck. The pool water was pristine and well kept. Wifi was available throughout the home. Best of all is the location of this home. As mentioned, situated in a quiet affluent neighborhood, but surrounded within a kilometer or two or three by the charming villages of Carvoeiro, Ferragudo and Portimao with fantastic beaches, restaurants and nightlife. Would highly recommend to anyone with assurance. A plus: owner/manager quite easy to work with!

If this were a hotel, it would get 5 stars
Stayed with friends in June at this property. Spotlessly clean, and maintained to a very high standard throughout. Bedrooms are huge with new beds, ensuite bathrooms are large with decent water pressure from the showers. Living room has 2 decent sized sofas and is a great place to relax/ have a snooze outside of the heat. Wifi was pretty quick on the ground floor considering the thickness of the walls. Very close to local villages and some stunning restaurants (it's walk able, but best to get a cab or rent a car). Would definitely go back!

Lovely villa, loads to do
Casa Jovic is a superb base for exploring the Algarve, if you can drag yourself away. The house is fantastic, and really well-equipped, and we loved hanging out at the pool and barbequing. With four huge ensuite bedrooms, it could easily accommodate two families. When we did manage to leave, we enjoyed the local beaches, especially Caneiros (great swimming and seafood) and our kids thought Splash & Slide, the local water park, was marvellous. Though we mostly ate in, we did enjoy the tapas restaurant on the seafront in Carvoeiro and Oregano in Sesmarias. It was a wonderful holiday, and we can't wait to go back.

Fab villa, great location, no complaints!
We stayed in Casa Jovic for a week in september and had a fab time! The villa is beautiful and we had everything and more available to us, it was clean, well maintained and a home away from home. Although we only used one room as a couple the villa is very spacious for groups/families. We only had one issue with no hot water on one occasion but this was rectified straight away by the handy man. The communication with Debbi the owner was first class and we had our transfer arranged from the airport - a seamless service from the get go. Thank you Debbi. We did not hire a car but still managed to explore the local area and towns carverio on foot (30mins stroll) and ferrugdo (10 min drive by taxi) which was about 10euro each way. The local restaurants are lovely, Oregano, Bon Bon, l'orange and Hexagon which where fantastic - all walkable (see trip advisor reviews). We will definitely be back to explore more of Portugal.

Large beautiful villa for a relaxing holiday with plenty to do and see
Casa Jovic is between the lively resort of Carvoiero and the more Portuguese fishing towns of Ferragudo and Portimao. The rooms are huge and spotlessly clean with maid service twice a week. Four large double bedrooms each with en-suite make it very comfortable, and the villa has all the mod cons you would want. The terrace and pool area are ideal for sunbathing, barbecues and eating al fresco. The villa is so well equipped we couldn't think of anything else we could have needed. Sesmarias has a great local shop for fresh bread and provisions just 200 yards away, and a further short walk to a friendly local bar and other shops and restaurant options. There are at least three supermarkets within a few miles, but a car is needed to get around. We particularly took advantage of the local orange grower for freshly squeezed OJ every day. Regards stuff to see and do - Carvoiero is 2-3 miles away, a lively little resort with plenty of shops and restaurants, a nice small beach, and not too many Irish pubs or fish and chip shops that blight Spain. Portugal seems more chilled and relaxed than Spain as a whole. Praia Grande at Ferragudo is fantastic beach with shallow sand - great for kids. Portimao marina and Praia de Rocha beach great for football, volleyball, loads of bars and restaurants. Silves inland has castle, and leads up into mountains at Monchique. Go-karting at the autodrome is fantastic. Lagos is well worth a visit. Boat trips to see the caves are good from both Portimao and Lagos, you can also hire your own boat if that's your thing. Golfing is well available both locally and a little bit further awa at Vale de Lobo or Vilamoura, which has a great marina with Figo's Bar etc. I could go on.... Casa Jovic offers something for everything in the area or you can just chill out back at the villa and its pool. We loved it!!!

Lovely Villa
Our family of 2 adults and 3 children (4,9,13) had a lovely time at Casa Jovic, where we stayed for 10 days. It is a comfortably furnished, spacious villa which has everything you need for your holiday, including wi-fi. We spent a lot of time around and in the lovely pool, and having BBQ's. We also made use of the 3 local cafes/restaurants, we particularly liked Donatos which does great pizzas. It was handy having the small supermarket within walking distance. We explored a few of the local beaches, as recommended in the very helpful owners manual left in the villa which had a lot of detail about the local area in it. The villa is only a 5 minute from Carvoeiro, and we had a some great nights there. All in all a great time was had by all.
