We booked 6 nights at Casas Buganvilla to use it as a base for hiking along the Rota Vincenta. I hadn't noticed before booking that credit cards were not accepted. A few days after booking, I received a message from the host, Rodney, asking for a bank transfer of 300 euros (half the cost of the booking). I sent the money a few days later for a cost of $30 Canadian. I let Rodney know that the money was on its way and that it may take a few days. Two days before we were due to arrive at Casas Buganvilla, we got a message from Booking.com that our reservation had been canceled. After finally getting in touch with Rodney, he told us he never received the deposit. He agreed to hold the reservation once we reassured him that we would show up. We ended up spending many hours on the phone and in emails with our bank to find out what happened to the money. We paid Rodney in cash for the full cost of the room. On our return home, our bank finally received confirmation that the money had been deposited in Rodney's account, two days after we sent it and two weeks before our arrival. Rodney said he didn't realize that it was our deposit since he received 290 instead of 300 euro, as there were fees for the transfer. He can't keep track of the deposits for a three room property! After several messages and phone calls, Rodney finally returned our double payment. We did not receive the full amount back, we estimate that we lost about $70 Canadian in the transaction not to mention the hassle of trying to deal with this on vacation. Our bank also waived all the fees involved so that is more costs due to an error. For the property itself, the room is fine. It is a little smaller than I expected. It can sleep four as there is a loft with two beds that you could use. I was glad for the extra space so that we could store our luggage. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need to make quick meals. The wood burning fireplace was nice. It is hard to get it started properly though, we need help from Rodney to get a fire going. The location was good. It is right on the Rota Vicenta. It is a short drive from Porto Covo where you can get groceries and there are some restaurants. A bit further is Villanova de Millefontes where there are more shops and restaurants.

Short stop during a weekend in May/2018 Energy recharged a top capapcity!!! The Place... Very well designed and implemented, congrats to the Owner!!! Well done! There's a small lagoon, where we can experience the nature, and enjoy a canoo The room area is really nice too, with a spectacular view of the entire property There's a private barbecue for each room, so if you stay longer, you would like to give it a try The surrounding area... Lots of beautiful places to visit, especially beach (Ilha do Pessegueiro, just 5min by car), or Porto Covo 8min by car, both, driviing really slow to enjoy all the views, else, would take 2 min and 4 min The places to eat... Ask the Owner! We did it, and it was the best!!! Enjoy!

We had a fantastic stay at Casas Buganvilla. The houses are very well designed and very clean. The outside seating area and the views are fantastic. It's an easy walk to Porto covo via a sandy path. Rodney had kept beers in the fridge for us which was great.The facilities are top class and the bathroom was very clean. We really want to go back and stay here for a week. I really miss this place.

We walked the 3+ miles from Porto Covo. We were the only people staying the night, and had 2 of the apartments. The rooms were spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The kitchens were well provisioned, and spices and oil (and a couple of beers) were provided. The stove top was difficult to work, but Rodney helped. We had a a fire outside and watched the stars. A great night. And a great way to start the walk. Rodney even walked us back to the trail (it wasn't difficult).
