“Great apartment”
Reviewed September 5, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

4 of us have just returned from a lovely 9 night stay in this apartment. First time we have booked an apartment privately. I was a little nervous before we arrived due to never having done this before however I was so relieved when we got to the apartment and everything was as expected and exactly how it looks in pictures. I don't think I would stay in a hotel again now or book a package holiday as we had a much better time staying in the apartment! No meal times to stick to or cheesy entertainment - you could just come and go as you wanted and please yourself. It was like a home from home with everything you would need - cooker, microwave, kettle, toaster, washer/dryer, iron, etc. The actual complex was in a great location - quiet but a short walk to bars, restaurants, shops & beach. The taxi rank was just at the bottom of the road and a ticket/excursions shop right beside the taxi rank if you want to organise any trips out. The apartment is in a corner location on the 1st floor which is great with 2 balconies (kitchen/lounge area opens out onto one balcony with table & chairs and the 2 bedrooms open out onto the other balcony) Great view of the pool and tennis court and we were surprised to see that we also had a sea view too! The apartment was extremely clean and tidy and essentials such as bread, milk, butter, orange juice etc was left for us arriving which was great as we arrived after shops had closed. Our beds were changed halfway through our stay and clean towels provided. The complex is very secure with keys needed to enter into the pool area. We booked our transfers through the management company, Luso Living, which was great - no hassle or stress and a very reasonable price. We all loved the place and I have already got my family looking at booking up to come here next year!

I would like to say a huge thank you to Claudia who I arranged everything with, she was so helpful and accommodating - nothing was too much trouble and she answered all of my questions very quickly and efficiently. Wish I could go back already!

My partner, our 2 year old daughter and I had a lovely week staying in Vista das Ondes in May 2014. We were met at the airport by a friendly driver with toddler car seat and travelled in comfort to our apt. The 2nd floor apt is in a new complex and is therefore very modern and spotlessly clean. I really appreciated that everything we needed was provided to a high standard - new travel cot with lovely sheets & blanket, kitchen we'll equipped, TV & DVD player (which we didn't use), WiFi, tennis racquets and even bucket & spade! The apt is approx 10 min walk to beach. The pools are great but very cold! There are a many good, reasonably priced restaurants within walking distance. There are 2 supermarkets nearby, a lovely bakery / cafe round the corner and a beautician for a nice treat (book ahead). All in all, a very enjoyable & relaxing week. Not the area if you are looking for nightlife but you can always taxi over to the livelier spots within 20-30 mins.

“Immaculate apartment with more than everything we needed”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I went for a week at Easter 2014 with my 2 daughters. We had booked the transport through the letting agent and that was totally stress free. As we arrived on a Sunday the driver assisted us with the keys and getting us access to the apartment. The accommodation was larger that i expected and had lots of simple things like salt and pepper, washing up liquid which in other self catering places i have been too you need to take. It was very clean and uncluttered. There was a welcome food pack at no extra charge with the basics. The only things that i would say as a slight negative are that the sun is only on the balconies until about 1pm and the pool is not heated, but the views are fantastic and at this time of year the pool area was really lovely and quiet and we were able to fully relax and unwind. I would highly recommend this holiday let as not only is it a lovely unit but it is ideally located close to good shops and restaurants with a fairly short walk downhill to the beach which is fantastic with lots of rock pools for the kids.
This was my first time in Portugal and i would go back again.

Management Response
Feb 7, 2013
It's always nice to hear from guests who have visited us the Algarve and ejoyed their stay! Vista das Ondas is very popular and holiday makers do like the added peace of mind of having a Property Management office on site to help with information and advice when visiting the area for the first time.

“What a great place for a break!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

This apartment is well appointed. The view from the balcony, especially as you eat breakfast, makes the day start well. There are several good restaurants and shops within walking distance so you do not need to cook if you do not want to. It is easy to explore the Algarve and to visit the beaches or just watch the world go by.

It is only a short distance from the cold wet weather in Britain but could be a world away. Highly recommended.
