“Superb location and views!”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have recently returned from a two week holiday with our two daughters and have had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. Philippa was very professional but also friendly and reassuring from start to finish.
The views from the large, L shaped balcony really enhanced our time there and were more than we expected. The apartment itself was large, well equiped and extremely clean, although a little tired and probably in need of updating, however, this didn't detract from our holiday.
Albufeira old town has something for everyone and was only a few minutes walk away. We haven't been in peak season before and I must admit, it was very busy but again, it didn't bother us too much and the girls enjoyed it! You can hear the 'buzz' from the town at night but it didn't disturb us at all really as we were usually shattered!
I must mention the transfers to and from the airport, which Philippa organised for us. They were extremely professional and friendly and not expensive compared to package holiday coach transfers. I would definitely recommend their excellent service.
In conclusion, a fantastic holiday which I would certainly do again!

“Best View, it was like Heaven!”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My Husband and I traveled to Albufeira and could not of asked for a better place to stay. Philippa the owner was so helpful with any of our questions and even had a Welcome Packet with all things needed to know ready for you. It was spacious, clean, gorgeous with a unbeatable view. Walking distance to anything important and just all around the perfect place. We would recommend this to anyone!

“Perfect apartment great holiday”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Me and four friends stayed in this apartment during the last week of June.

The location was perfect, less than 5 minutes to get to Old Town and the beach. New town is walking distance but we always got a taxi for around 5 euros. There are also two supermarkets near by which was useful.

The apartment is perfect, the pictures do not do it justice. It was a lot bigger than expected and the view from the balcony is breath taking.

Philippa was very nice and helpful with the booking, she always replied quickly with lots of information. She was also very kind to arrange an airport transfer for my sister who was staying at another location.

It is great value for money. Has all the utensils you could need, very clean, towels were also provided and the apartment overall is homely. We felt at home from the moment we stepped in.

This apartment is great for up to five people, we were worried about the sleeping arrangements but we needn't have been. The sofa beds were very comfortable and the apartment was a perfect size for us.

There's a lot of stairs to get to the apartment as it is on the top floor - this wasn't a problem for us though.

Thank you Philippa for a smooth easy booking no doubt we will be back! =)

“Spacious, big balcony, great view”
Reviewed September 19, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

A nice place to stay in Albufeira, with a great view of the city centre and the beach. Both the apartment and the balcony are nice and spacious, and a big pool and lots of space around it in the common areas. Complex and apartment a bit run-down, but no worse than expected, and certainly not in a way that hampered the experience - purely cosmetic.

“Nice Accomodation”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The apartment was spotlessly clean on arrival. There was a nice sized kitchen, dining area and living area. The bedroom was a nice size also and the beds were comfortable. It is a 5 min walk to the escalators which take you to the old town. It was very quiet where it was located.

There is no air con in the apartment but there was two fans which were very useful in the apartment.

One thing to note is that the apartment while spotlessly clean was quite older than what it appears in the pictures. The bathroom is in need of updating as is some of the tiles on the floor.
