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.

Zalige vakantie op een toplocatie!
Wij ( ik en mijn dochter van 15 jaar) hebben genoten van een zalig verblijf in het appartement van Sophie en Wim. Dit is gelegen op een toplocatie met een prachtig uitzicht vanop het terras. Net zoals vorig jaar werden wij hartelijk ontvangen en was alles tip top in orde. Het appartement beschikt over alle comfort en is heel gezellig ingericht. Bovendien beschikt het over een zwembad boven op het dak waar het aangenaam vertoeven is. Je kan in de buurt heerlijk wandelen, lekker gaan eten maar ook zelf koken in de goed uitgeruste keuken (met uitzicht op de ondergaande zon) is een aanrader! Een topverblijf in een topappartement!

Gezellig appartement met gastvrije ontvangst
Wij verbleven 4 weken in appartement Waterfront, het in Marokkaanse stijl ingerichte appartement van Sophie en Wim,. Als wijmet de huurauto aankomen rijden, zien we het licht al branden. Wat een welkom,de koffie staat klaar! We genieten van de luxe van het appartement,alles is aanwezig. Het ontbreekt ons aan niets. Gezellige woonkamer, TV met Canal Digital, heerlijk bed en en suite badkamer. De ruime keuken heeft zels een wasmachine, droger en afwasmachine. En als er iets is, bel je Wim en Sophie die je direkt helpen. Een aanrader in de zonnige Algarve. Peter en Marijke,januari 2020

Meer dan fantastisch
Een bijzonder appartement aan het eind van de boulevard. Prachtig uitzicht (richting Faro) met iedere avond een altijd andere zonsondergang. Je blijft er van genieten. Appartement is meer dan compleet ingericht met echt alles wat je nodig hebt, ook voor meerdere weken verblijf. Binnen 6/7 minuten lopen ben je in het gezellige centrum van Olhão of van de bekende supermarkten Continente of Lidl. Tientalle restaurantjes in de buurt. De een nog beter als de andere. Uitschieter vinden wij Tapas e Lendas. Wij gaan volgend jaar weer voor een lange tijd. Als je vragen of problemen hebt, kun je altijd terecht bij de Nederlandse eigenaren Wim en Sophie. Ze doen echt alles voor je om het je naar de zin te maken.

Home from home
Third year in a row at this wonderful apartment. Wim and Sophie cant do enough for you. The interior is first class with everything you need. The view from the balcony is superb. You can watch the Flamingos and other birds. Wim even gave us binoculars to get a better view. Also the guys picking cockles when the tide goes out. It is a short 5 minute walk to bars and excellent restaurants. Only 10 minutes to get the ferry or train into Faro. Try Love Tuk tours just 2 minutes away. You can book various tours and is excellent. This apartment is better than any hotel and I would highly recommend it.

We've already booked again for next year
We had an extended stay in Olhao to escape the London winter. The apartment was exceptional - much more homely than is the norm in a holiday rental. The views of the Ria Formosa are spectacular particularly at sunset and we kept binoculars handy to observe the comings and goings of the birdlife and clam pickers throughout the days. S & W are friendly, welcoming and helpful hosts - intervening to provide language assistance when we needed to find healthcare. Olhao itself is intriguing - it has its own solid local life which is a treat to join in with. Recommended unreservedly.

Relaxing in Olhao
This was our first time in this apartment and hope it won't be our last. We found the apartment to be homely with lots of little extras, immaculately clean and comfortable. Sophie & William gave us a warm welcome and went out of their way to make us feel at home. We were there for a month and really didn't want to leave. So hopefully we will be back next year. We highly recommend this apartment and say again, thank you, Sophie & William for a brill holiday.

Beautifully decorated and clean apartment
Me and my mother stayed in this beautiful apartment for a week. The booking was made very easy and straightforward with the owner and all information was provided efficiently. In the apartment itself, which is decorated in a Moroccan theme and is really beautiful, supplied everything and more than what we needed. The weather was lovely for our week, quite hot some days but having the benefit of the rooftop pool was really great. Lovely views over the Ria Formosa. We will definitely be returning to either this apartment or one of the other apartments which the owner has. Really efficient and friendly service!

Wonderful Week in Olhao
This is our third visit to Olhao, having stayed in both the Real Marina Hotel and a town house in the heart of the port. But this experience topped the lot, beginning with the warm welcome from Sophie and Wim on our arrival, to the beautiful Moroccan furnishings in our apartment with superb terrace and fabulous unspoiled views which was more than adequately equipped with all modern appliances and little thoughtful items supplied (toiletries, beach towels, parasol etc) which made our stay all the more comfortable and very much home from home, we had just the most wonderful week and didn't want to leave! The location, the cleanliness and hospitality of our hosts will ensure we will hopefully return once again. If you are looking to holiday in Olhao look no further than this apartment.

About the neighbourhood
Olhão, a lively fishing port, still retains its original character with a strong Moorish influence. It is 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.
Getting around
There is ample public transport: local and regional buses and a train station at walking distance. Also several supermarkets and many restaurants and bars/cafes at walking distance.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
There are many direct flights from various European countries to Faro, also with budget airlines such as Ryan Air, Easy Jet, Monarch and Transavia. Village Marina, Olhão is located only 15km from Faro Airport. There is a bus and train connection (only from the centre of Faro) to Olhão, but the easiest is to hire a car at one of the many car hire companies or get a taxi (Euro 20-25).
