“Fabulous condo and location”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

A big "thank you" to Theresa for renting your lovely condo to us for 6 weeks. Your place is extremely well equipped with everything we needed to feel at home. It is also so centrally located to everything and even though we rented a car for 5 weeks, we were able to walk to the Strip, the beach, Old Town, grocery stores, and the many lovely restaurants available in Albufeira in a matter of minutes. We felt very safe in this gated community. (Theresa, my emails to you have been returned so you must have changed your email address?)

“Beautiful & Tranquil”

Just wanted to say a big thanks to Theresa. Myself, my husband, two kids and my mum and dad said in the Barracuda for 10 wonderful days. Apartments D11 & D13. The apartments are finished to a very high standard and has everything you would ever need. So peaceful and quiet and the location really made the holiday and a big plus - no rushing around for sunbeds!! We have stayed before in Parque da Corcovada, just down from the Bull ring which were really good but you cant beat being down by the sea!! Didn't attempt the beach walk to the old town as the sand was very hot and also shelly which made it difficult to walk, but a short walk up the hill from the apartment you could get a taxi into the old town or turn right at the top brought you to the bottom of the strip. We never had a bad meal as I done alot of research on tripadvisor before I left and found alot of lovely restaurants both in the old town and the new town (bottom of strip). If back in Portugal again, wouldnt stay anywhere else!! Thanks again Theresa xx

“Peace and Tranquility, a home from home”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Great communication from the owner both by phone and email during the weeks leading up to the holiday, nothing was too much bother.
Beautiful secure gated complex with a driveway leading up from the road.
The apartment is modern,spacious, bright and clean with all the comforts of home, and a lovely pool to top it off.
The sandy beach is only a couple of minutes away.
Under 10 mins walks you to the "Strip" with plenty of shops and restaurants, and about 15 minutes in the other direction will take you to the Old Town area (my favourite) of Albufeira either by road, or if you fancy a stroll along the waters edge at the beach in the evening, it will lead you straight into the old town as well.
We would definitely go back as it is a great base for a relaxing holiday.

Stayed here with my boyfriend and his parents, the apartment was lovely and stylish with absolutely everything you would need! The apartment was spacious and only 2 min from the beach and 5 minutes from the strip. Old town is about 15 min down the road but is well worth the walk. The whole area is beautiful, be sure to go to the beach where you can rent 2 sunbirds and a umbrella for 10 euro then receive a free bottle of wine 2 free cocktails, coffee, beer or soft drinks at sunset beach hut. The trip was fab and I would visit the apartments again with no hesitation. Beautiful

We stayed for 6 nights at this apartment. Dave picked us up from the airport and right from the start was friendly and talkative. We arrived quite late and Theresa was there to meet us and as promised our complimentary goods were in the fridge. The apartment was terrific, clean and equipped with all that you need for a self catering holiday. The location of the Quinta da Barracuda is ideal whether you are looking for the new or old town. Our preference is the old town which was a lovely stroll along the beach. We have to say this was the best self catering apartment we have stayed in and there have been a few over the years! Thank you so much to both Theresa and Dave, friendly, professional and reliable.
