Condo/Apartment
OCEAN VIEW is an algarvewaterfrontapartment with 3 bedrooms, located in Marina Village Olhão. The Village Marina complex includes several apartment blocks with 4 floors. However, since the orientation is north-south, there are only four blocks where the end on the south side is located directly on the boulevard. The first two blocks are part of the 5* Real Marina & Spa hotel. So the number of private apartments with 'super' views is very limited and those all have three bedrooms. Our corner apartment is one of those. Our luxury apartment is located in the third building on the third floor (2 elevators available), right on the boulevard of Olhão. It is just minutes' walk from the ferries to the beautiful islands Armona and Culatra, where you can really relax on beautiful and quiet beaches. ...OCEAN VIEW is an algarvewaterfrontapartment with 3 bedrooms, located in Marina Village Olhão.

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.

Apartment der Superlative
Hier stimmt wirklich alles. Toller Standort, fantastischer Blick, super Ausstattung, netter Kontakt zu den Eigentümern. Und dann kommen noch die idealen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants in der unmittelbaren Umgebung dazu. Auch nach dem ersten beeindruckenden Eindruck bleibt das Glücksgefühl bestehen. Wir freuen uns auf die bevorstehenden Tage.

Supermooi appartement in Olhao *****
Wat een geweldige week hebben we weer gehad! We zijn er nu voor de vijfde keer geweest en het voelt als thuiskomen. Wat hebben weer enorm genoten en wat zijn Sophie en Wim ook gastvrij. :-) Je kunt het zo gek niet bedenken aan alles is werkelijk gedacht, er staat zelfs een biertje en een wijntje koud bij aankomst. Ook mag je van alles gebruiken en kan je ook weer aan kan vullen zoals koffie/thee/kruiden/ enz...…….zo is het voor elke gast perfect geregeld. De bedden zijn zeer goed en het appartement is luxe ingericht, het balkon zeg maar gerust(terras) is behoorlijk groot en biedt een heel mooi uitzicht. Je komt er helemaal tot rust, we kijken alweer uit naar volgend jaar!!

SUPERB VIEWS, best in complex!
Apartment Ocean View has a wonderful location: from all rooms beautiful views over the Nature Reserve Ria Formosa, the marina and the islands Farol and Culatra. Over the last 5 years we have stayed in apartments all over Europe on at least 20 occasions and this rates as the best apartment we have stayed in. It had everything you could want . Very friendly and efficient owners, excellent location,. The views of the sun setting from the balcony were fantastic as were the choice and quality of the many restaurants within 10- 15 minutes stroll. I would recommend it to my friends and also we would return to Olhao and to this apartment again. PIET HOLLANDER, August 2019

Amazing Apartment, Location and Hosts
Leaving this place will be making us sad. Sophie and Wim gave us a warm welcome and they were great hosts during our stay. We loved the apartment, tours to islands, beaches and Olhão as a whole. The views were amazing from the balcony of the sea, Farol and Culatra and the fishermen along with amazing weather. We could not have asked for more. The pool upstairs was perfect for our 3 year old and the other children. 5 Star all around and we will be back. Thanks Sophie and Wim. See you soon.

Beautiful apartment *****
Beautiful apartment! I has been the fourth time we visited this location and most likely not the past time te come! The apartment offers a lot os space and it is 100% complete. From repair sewing kit till books or umbrella, you name it and it is there. Good beds and comfortable matrasses, wifi like home. Ideal located at the edge of the town, perfect vieuw of the Ria Formosa and from the diner table through the window. Very nice is seeing the people gathering clams which are being offered tot he local restaurants and are available for lunch or diner. The owners, Wim and Sophie, complete the stay and make you feel as idf you come home.

Again enjoyed!
Already for the sixth time I spent a week in an apartment of Sophie and Wim. This time I stayed in Oceanview. And as always, everything was in perfect order. All three apartments are fully and tastefully furnished. All you need is there and well cleaned. The view from the balcony of Oceanview is great. I enjoy this every time. Sophie and Wim, thanks again and hopefully until next year.

About the neighbourhood
Olhão, a lively fishing port, still retains its original character with a strong Moorish influence the place to be for people who love the real Portugal, with its history and culture, beautiful islands and beaches, nature and interesting hinterland. The 1.3 km long boulevard in Olhão is one of the finest in the Algarve with green parks and playgrounds. Striking are the famous red market halls with daily (except Sunday) fresh fish, vegetables and fruits. On Saturday there is a local product / gypsy market. There are many excellent cafes/coffee shops, shops, bars and restaurants. The choice of restaurants is great and the very fresh fish, clams, squid, crabs and shrimp are excellent.A good starting point for exploring the town is the tower of Our Lady of the Rosary: the baroque church in the centre.From here you can see hundreds of typical rooftop terraces on the roofs of the whitewashed cubes from which the city derives its unique view. Stroll through the maze of streets and white houses in the picturesque fishing district.
Getting around
