“Magnolia, a beautiful tree, perfect name for a fabulous apartment”

We looked at several possible apartments when planning our trip to Portugal and the Algarve region. We settled on the small town of Guia. After reading and reviewing the pictures of several apartments in Guia, we kept coming back to the Magnolia. When we arrived, we were not disappointed. The apartment was very clean and decorated in a way that is very comfortable for reading and relaxing. The kitchen was completely stocked and easy for 2 to work in and prepare light breakfasts or snacks. We loved the outside patio for evening cocktails and snacks. The pool was also a positive. One in our group swam several times. The location of the apartment is perfect. You can walk for coffee in the AM and then there are several great restaurant choices for excellent fish and pork in the town. We were never disappointed

“Great Location and Good Value”

We booked this property based on the reviews and pictures and we were not disappointed. We have been to Guia several times over the last 25 years and have seen the town grow considerably but fortunately it has continued to remain a very pleasant base for a holiday. Magnolia is ideally placed for visiting any of the very good restaurants which are all within a short walk. The Apartment itself is comfortable with everything you require for an enjoyable stay. The terrace is a delight where you can sit in the shade or enjoy the sun for a large part of the day. You will be hard pressed to find better value than this apartment in this area.

“Great Apartment in great location”

Nigel & Rosie have a great apartment with excellent furnishings and everything you need to enjoy a good holiday. Security is fantastic and very reassuring. Secure underground parking if required. The terrace enjoys the sun for the whole of the afternoon and is ideal if you just want to chill. Guia is a great central location with a number of good restaurants and cafés. The Atlantico and Palladium are good quality restaurants and Guia Football Club is great for a light lunch or an evening meal. The N125 and the Motorway are within easy reach and Zoo Marine is a short journey and a good day out.

Great apartment, comfortable and equipped with everything you might need. Guia is a great little town, nice and relaxed and great local restaurants especially if you enjoy piri piri as we do! Overall very happy and would stay again, lovely terrace/garden area also.

“A lovely apartment in a good location”
Reviewed November 7, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Nigel & Rosie’s ground floor apartment in Guia is for their own use as well as rentals and reflects an obvious taste for quality, being spacious, very well appointed and well maintained.
Whilst there are a number of fine & varied restaurants within walking distance, the kitchen has every possible modern appliance if required, with a large dining table in the lounge and another on the covered patio (plenty of loungers) that opens onto a small private garden.
Guia is fairly centrally located on the Algarve and well placed for the many and different attractions, for which we find a car essential. There was plenty of parking space when there (October) and also more secure underground gated parking, though not used by us.
The apartment itself is very secure, having external roller shutters to all windows, an alarm system and a small safe, which can be set to a combination of your choice.
We did not use the leisure complex but saw that it was equipped as described and well maintained.
There are many other facilities, per the property description, and suffice it to say we would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and would return to this better class of rental when next in the Algarve.

This apartment was great, the owners had left a handbook covering absolutely everything from instructions for all the electrical equipment to reviews on all the local restaurants. the accommodation was clean and tidy and really accessible.

Highly recommended..

“Ideal location excellent facilities and very comfortable”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Had a wonderful stay at this apartment, located in the centre of Guia with its fantastic restaurants,proximity to great beaches and the Algarve shopping centre. The apartment has a lovely sunny terrace/garden and has been tastefully decorated throughout. The kitchen is equipped to a high standard should you want to eat in. There is a good dining area inside but we made more use of the dining area on the terrace due to the great weather. A very comfortable apartment which we would highly recommend.
