“Fabulous location, excellently appointed apartment with welcoming and attentive owners.”
Reviewed June 13, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My family and I stayed from 31st May 2015 for 1 week. We were met at the airport by the taxi transfer arranged for us by the owner. We arrived at the apartment to a warm welcome where we were shown around and provided with lots of information about the area and things we could do during our stay. The apartment was the perfect size for our party (4 adults and 1 toddler). The swimming pool and roof terrace were ideal with ample space for the sun loungers provided - as well as this the area was very child friendly. The apartment is a short stroll away from the centre of town which has fabulous fruit and fish markets as well as a lovely restaurants. There were also two children's play areas within short walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will happily come back again. We would also like to thank Sophie and Wim for their excellent hospitality in particular they're welcome gift for our daughter which made her feel at home straight away. As well as this they came to the rescue to help my husband and father while in the supermarket as they realised they could not carry all that had been purchased back to apartment!

“Well presented apartment tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean”
Reviewed May 18, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay from beginning to end. The owner's were friendly and helpful and quick to respond when we were unable to operate the TV on 2 occasions. The apartment has the most amazing view which changes throughout the day. Walking into town to eat is very easy and as we had a rental car we were able to explore the local area. There is a Supermarket (Lidl) some 10 minutes walk away and a wheeled pull along trolley to carry your groceries has been thoughtfully left in the apartment by the owner's. This was our first experience of renting an apartment which was well equipped and the washing machine took 15 minutes for a quick wash!! All in all a very memorable stay which we hope to repeat in the not too distant future.

“An exceptional apartment with exceptional owners.”

Sophie and Wim welcomed us with a much needed tea and cake, on learning that my elderly mother had forgotten her walking stick they came back again next morning with one for her, they are fantastic hosts who would go out of their way to make ones holiday one to remember. The apartment is five star at least, stocked with everything one could possibly need like,toothbrushes,toothpaste, dental floss, sun cream,after sun, spices , salt, sugar ,olive oil, I could go on. So we didn't have to buy any essentials. The decor is beautiful with lovely objects of art around the place which adds to the beauty of the place.we could easily have stayed all day on the balcony as the views of the Ria Farmosa are exceptional ,watching the fishing boats coming in with their catches, watching the wildlife, people picking clams.
We ate out every night in a different resturaunts and had amazing seafood every night which was very reasonable. We took the public ferry out to the islands to the deserted beaches and again great resturaunts with fantastic seafood. This was my 4 th time in Olhao and probably the best time because the apartment was so special and Sophie and Wim did everything they could to make our stay amazing.

A nice modern apartment very tastefully decorated, sited on the edge of Olhao with a large balcony which overlooks the sea and marshes. The tide is very evident and fascinating to watch it ebb and flow. It is close to several restaurants and an easy walk to the ferries that will take you to the islands. Sofie and Wim the owners are very helpful.

“Location, apartment, owners all absolute first class”
Reviewed September 19, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

When you arrive at this beautiful apartment looking out on the waster in Olhao you are immediately struck by a couple of things. The first is the apartment itself, which has commanding views of the estuary, and is as neat as a pin. Every possible request has been catered for here, from timetables of the local ferries which take you to the beaches to cold beers in the fridge for thirsty Australian travellers. Everything is fastidiously looked after here, and there are some great touches like basic cooking materials in the cupboards, a cooler to take your lunch and drinks to the beach (and a beach umbrella and trolley naturally), books on the local area, maps, restaurant guides, a plunge pool on the roof, everything.
A short walk down the road to the restaurants that line the main street of this little fishing village and the markets that operate daily (except Sunday), walk across the road to get the hotel ferry or down into town to get the public one which is cheaper but more crowded. Sophie and Wim are great hosts, very careful to make sure you are looked after, and Wim even trundled us around to the bus station on our last day to save us trying to get a cab with all our luggage. All up, a modern spotless apartment in a good spot with great hosts. If you are doing the Algarve area for the first time, this is a great place to start.
