“Outstanding Villa in fantastic location”
Reviewed July 3, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Rented for a week after carefully reviewing a range of villas. Turned out to be everything we hoped for and then some.

The owner was very responsive and helpful (renting a car was definitely the best option) and the villa was appointed to a very high standard. We wanted for nothing. The pool was superb and provided a great retreat from the sun.

The villa is very close to the beach which tends to get busy late morning so we went early and the pool in the afternoon. We'd highly recommend a boat trip to the caves from Benagil beach (€20 per head) as recommended to us by a neighbour. Shops are nearby (although not onsite) and there is are plenty of eating options nearby - Italian onsite. We ate in the villa every night as the facilities are great.

Overall, it was a superb villa in a great location allowing us and our teenage children to recharge. Oh, worth noting that the wifi/internet connection works a treat. Allowed social media updates/connection and access to our normal streaming services - apparently a must-have for the teenage harmony.

Hi Kevin
thanks for the great review. We try to keep the villa in the shape we would like it to be for ourselves. So there always are changes for the better like the fiber internet and multitude of TV channels.
Hope to receive you again some day.

“The best location on the Algarve”
Reviewed September 6, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Casa Miramar is just a perfect place to stay the views from the villas terrace, upper terrace, pool and garden over the ocean are amazing. A few minutes walk down the steps to one of the best beaches. Villa is beautiful and has everything you require free wifi and Apple TV too. Would definitely recommend

“Great location, beautiful home!”
Reviewed May 27, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Once you arrive you will never want to leave! The view is spectacular and the house is beautiful. Fully stocked. The best we've experienced ( and we have rented a lot of vacation homes). This house can easily accomodate 6 people. We spent our morning drinking coffee and admiring the view from the upper deck. Afternoons were spent either exploring
carvoeiro (had a rental car - private parking was provided) or swimming in the pool. Late afternoon and early morning walks along the nature path just outside the back gate provided exercise plus extraordinary views. This place has it all. An unforgettable vacation!!!

Dear Mary,

Thank you for your kind words. We do take pride in offering more than a standard holiday home, thus the well stocked house. And we are always trying to make it even better...

Best regards, Herman

“Fantastic, our ideal summer holiday!”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Casa Miramar during the last week of July 2014 and had a wonderful holiday. We are a family of 5, with two boys aged 12 and 10 and a girl almost 8. For us the best thing about the holiday was the gorgeous villa with the pool and fantastic sea views. The children spent hours playing in the pool every day while we were able to relax, read a book and enjoy the lovely views. We went to the beach a few times, which was fun o get to, a 5 minute walk down quite a few steps and through a tunnel in the rock. The beach was clean, sandy and very pretty. The sea was a little cold, but I enjoyed quite a few long swims. There is another beach further up, called Benagil, which is also very pretty. It's about a 25-30 minute walk from the villa. You can buy ice cream there and also there are a few restaurants. Most importantly is the fact that you can go on a boat trip from there to visit the very impressive caves around the coast. We took a boat from Carvoeiro and since we were worried that the children might get sick, decided to take the 1 hour trip rather than the 1 hr 20 or 1 hr 45. We learned later that by doing this we missed seeing the most impressive caves, had we caught the boat at Benagil we would have seen the best caves within the hour trip as they are near Benagil. Having said this we really enjoyed the boat trip and out visit to Carvoeiro. We also had a good day out at the waterpark, Aqualand, there are two in the area and we decided to go to this one as it was the closest.
We ate in and had a bbq most evenings, it was so lovely to sit out in the evenings in such a beautiful setting that we didn't want to go anywhere. We did our shopping at the Intermarche supermarket between Carvoeiro and Lagoa, it was open on a Sunday morning which was great for us as we arrived late on the Satuday. It was well stocked with anything that you might want and seemed reasonably priced. We did try the restaurant on site one evening. We had a very warm welcome, good service, tasty food and a very enjoyable evening.
When booking the holiday I was worried that the weather might be too hot during the last week of July, but I have to say this wasn't the case, for me the weather was perfect, lovely and warm with a light sea breeze.
The only thing left for me to say is if you're thinking of booking this villa, do it! You won't regret it.

“"Heaven on Earth"”
Reviewed April 16, 2013 for a stay in June 2012

A really magnificent villa, can’t fault anything about it, spotless, overlooks the sea, great views, one of the closest villas to the beach. Beautiful pool, lovely décor inside villa, a fabulous roof terrace-need I continue?! There are plenty of towels, an extremely well equipped kitchen, lots of DVDs, pool toys, books & tennis rackets. The best & most luxurious holiday I have had since the children came along. We travelled with 3 small children; they still talk about the pool & their room. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else. You need a car, the villa is Clube Atlantico/Carvoeiro,it has its own communal pool-that’s lovely too- Carvoeiro is a nice small town-bouncy castles on beach-nice places to eat out. My only fear writing this review is that I won’t get a booking for 2013. My advice-go for it!!
