“Excellent and Amazing - I could not ask for more!!!!”

Carmen from start to the end looked after us. At every stage she provided us with updates and also ensured that everything was perfect for us from her side.

Regularly sent messages to me during my stay to ensure we had everything we needed. If anything was required then it was just a phone call away.

She booked our taxis for us on request, ensured the swimming pool was cleaned up for the next day etc.

We had all our privacy, the villa itself was perfect for a holiday. We had all the essentials needed for our trip.

I would definitely recommend this villa and hope to go back again very soon.

Thank you very much Carmen for your service.

“Fantastic accommodation - great owners”

We stayed at this 'villa' for 2 weeks with my whole family and we had an amazing time. The accommodation was perfect - there was 4 separate parts to the accommodation which worked great for us - each family had their own bathrooms, kitchens and living rooms and outside areas, which included a seating area and outdoor bbq. Most of the rooms had air-con, but the ones that didnt we were given a fan so it was still comfortable during the night. The owners provided us with wi-fi which was great.
During the day and the evening there was ample space for us all to be together and sit together. The pool area was great - there was plenty of sun loungers and seats and the pool itself was a great size - it had a shallow end and a good size deep end which suited us for both the kids and adults.
The area for us all to sit out on a night was great and there was enough seats for us all to be together.
Each of the apartments were great, the owners ensured there was plenty of pots, glasses, pans and utensils for us to use. There was also plenty of towels for indoor use. We had washing machines as well which helped. There wasn't one in every apartment, but there was one in the pool room (which also had a toilet, shower & sink in).
The owners of the apartments were great, so lovely & friendly. They met us there on arrival and went through everything we needed to know. We had to message them a couple of times with a few minor things but they replied straight away & came to resolve the issues on the same day - they couldn't have been more helpful. The cleaners came half way through our stay and changed all the bedding and cleaned everywhere for us, but there was cleaning products and equipment to do this during the other days.
I would totally recommend this place for large families as well as smaller groups as the main doors are all separate and each apartment has everything you need.
In terms of location we found it to be great - there was Mr Freddies restaurant at the end of the track which was gorgeous (we ate there 3 times during our stay!). There was other restaurants within walking distance so plenty of variety - Blu was another favourite. The supermarket was about 20 minutes walk away, but they can call you a taxi when you have done your shopping so it was fine for us. The first week we hired cars so we could visit the local areas, but if cars aren't an option local taxis can take you to places such as Vale Do Lobo, Albuferia and Villamoura.
In terms of getting to the apartment from the airport we booked a transfer who were fabulous - they were called Easy Transfer - I contacted them direct on their website and then by email and they were great. http://www.easytransfer.pt/en/services - so easy and very reasonable.
If we ever decided to go back to Portugal we wouldn't hesitate in booking this accommodation again.
Thanks for a great stay!!

“Amazing value, relaxing, private and friendly!”

Carmen (and her father, who we met on the first day) were the friendliest and most helpful hosts- we didn't know what to expect when we arrived but our holiday turned out to be perfect. The villa has it's own pool, when we arrived we had to wait a few hours to check in (due to an early flight) but could relax by the pool straight away- it had an outhouse with shower and toilet right by it so we settled in without a problem. We did have to share the pool with other families from the bottom villas, so we'd recommend this venue for a bigger group, however we were lucky as the families were all lovely and friendly.

We (a group of 7) had the top floor (which consisted of 2 separate, similar sized apartments) which were perfect- they were spacious, modern with kitchen facilities, wifi, and both had a lovely terrace with barbecue area. We walked to the local Aldi every day (around 20 minutes away) for food supplies and got a taxi back with the shopping (taxis are really cheap!), and had plenty of kitchen space and fridge space to store everything. The bedrooms were a decent size and had the possibility for couples or singles, the only downside was that there was only one bathroom in each apartment and this was an ensuite to the double bedroom, but we went to the outhouse at night time so we didn't disturb the couples. Also (probably similar to most properties) the plumbing meant we couldn't put toilet paper down the toilet. Unfortunately we couldn't find bin liners to change the bins in the toilet when they got full so if we had stayed for longer this might have become a problem but we may have just not looked hard enough!

We thought it might be a problem not being near to the beach but the pool area was so lovely we only went to the beach for a day- it was easy and cheap to get there by taxi (around €12 for a 7 seater, takes around 10-15 minutes). Advice: book taxis with plenty of time as they tended to be late, and find a local taxi number as other Algarve taxis will take even longer to arrive!

We didn't get a chance to eat at the local restaurant- Mr Freddie's, but would have if we had time, it's just around the corner and had a romantic outdoor area and was busy most nights we went past it.

All in all we would definitely recommend the Beach Mansion, it was the perfect holiday, affordable and high-quality. Thank you so much Carmen!!
