“Great experience in beautiful surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We enjoyed the ten days at Casa Bamboo. Achim and Isabel are perfect hosts and made our stay most enjoyable. The one room appartment, a former bar, is well and tastefully equiped and even suited for a rainy spring day (heating worked nicely). Even though the room is really spacious, it could become a little bit crowded for 4 adults.

After staying here I feel so relaxed and calm. A real holiday where the stuff knows your needs and are very friendly and professional. We had a beautiful room with Aboriginal paintings and very nice clours. I will certainly come back next year. Not one disappointment everything so clean and nice ... Love to all staff

Certainly the best accommodation of the whole trip through the Algarve and the Alentejo coast in Portugal.
Isabel and her family rent five rooms in their big house and run this project with a lot of heart.
We rested in a high ceiling room with ethnic decoration based on earth colours and Australian aboriginal inspired paintings.
Outside we could hear the murmur of the waves and in the mornings have breakfast in the terrace watching the spectacular dunes of Bordeira beach.
Casa Bamboo is one of this places you would wish to come back soon.
@Wifi in most parts of the house.

We stayed in one of the rooms on the back of the house, it's extremely clean, very nicely decorated and comfortable. The location is great, very quite and cozy, and really close to the ocean. Isabel and Achim are very warm and friendly and that made our stay here extremely enjoyable. We'd like to come back hopefully soon enough and we highly recommend this place at any time.

We stayed in the apartment and really loved it! It was immaculate, comfortable and beautiful. Isobel and Joachem are wonderful hosts and they really made us feel welcome and at home. We would definately recommend this magnificent place!

A great surfing beach is within walking distance and the cafes in the village centre, are lovely and serve good, affordable food.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are lovely, but the self-catering apartment is a real treat! Don't worry about...

Our stay here was one of the most memorable parts of our trip, and Casa Bamboo will always be a special place for us. Hosts Isabel and Joachim are very warm and welcoming and have decorated the place with their own personal touch, which made the place feel a lot less like a hotel and more like home.

Carrapeteira is a great location, away from the bustling beaches of the southern coast. Being a natural reserve, there is very little construction or development, and the village is extremely charming, but also small. You will have to drive to neighboring towns to get almost anything.

Extremely kind and friendly Isabel and Joachim built this 4-room B&B about 10 years ago. I believe 3 are single rooms and the fourth is an apartment. We stayed in one of the single rooms. It is on the back of the house, facing their beautiful patio. Isabel and joachim did most of the finish construction themselves, and they paid loving attention to every detail.

Our room was simple, but beautiful rather than spartan. The bed was extremely comfortable and the organic cotton sheets were very high quality and so soft. And breakfast...yum! Again, simple, but delicious and beatifully presented, and locally provisioned (arugula from their garden, local bakery bread daily, local honey, etc.).

Isabel and Joacim are multi-lingual, and speak excellent English. The location is stunningly beautiful and peaceful. Quiet and extremely relaxing. If you're looking for a great place to party after a long day at the beach, this isn't for you. But, if you're looking for quiet, sparkling clean, attention to detail, and very charming hosts, Bamboo is your place in Carrapateira!

The only negative...no wifi. But, we found free wifi at the top of the street at Restaurante Cabrita.
