We stayed for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The apartment is very spacious and well equiped. Having a small child, it was great being able to put him to bed then sit and relax downstairs without worrying about the noise! Lovely having so many balconies too... The welcome groceries were very thoughtful and generous too. Excellent value for money
Would definitely recommend this apartment.

"Hard act to follow"
How can you follow all the good reviews of this apartment and owners. We can only confirm all the fantastic comments on trip advisor and in the guest book in the apartment. Directions fron Faro as given by Mo were spot on, as was the welcome. Had a fantastic 2 weeks and hope to return later this year. Thanks again, Mo and Nige.

"Comfortable apartment with everything you could need"
We found our stay there very comfortable. Apartment was spacious and gleaming. Mo and Nige had everything you could possibly need.I stayed with my husband and 3 children ages 8, 6 and 5months.
The only extras other than clothes we needed to bring were few nappies and babies food as everything else was there.
The apartment was within walking distance from everything.there is also a taxi rank 5mins away.there is a beautiful bakery just facing there and it is a must that you visit lol.
Will definitely stay there again.
If you decide to stay there you won't regret it.

Just back from a great week at this apartment. the apartment is very clean and comfortable with a lot of extra little extras. We especially loved the plentiful supply of SOFT towels both for the apartment and the beach/pool. There were even inflatables for the pool including a pump! Hair dryers and straightners, tissues etc. the welcome pack was great if you want a cuppa when you arrive. Air con is not necessary as there is a lovely breeze throughout the apartment when both balcony doors are open. The pool area is nice clean and quite and there is a bar serving drinks/snacks adjacent to it. Just call through the terrace doors and they will come and serve you!!!! the apartment is located close the the strip prob ten mins walk. A taxi to the old town is only €4 or the tourist train @ €3.50 for two. We could not in any way fault this apartment as it is top class in its price range. Maureen arranged a taxi transfer for us and he was english speaking - thanks Dave- and very efficient!!! both the beach in the new town and the old one are great. the old town being larger - the taxi/tourist train take you right there. the restaurants both in the Old/new Town are all of very high quality and the Sea Bass/Bream are a must. As a 50+ couple we found entertainment for all ages. 5*
thanks again Maureen and Nigel.

We have just come back from an unforgettable holiday in Albufeira. The apartment is in a great location - just 10 mins from The Strip which has some great bars and shops. We especially liked the Blue Sea Cocktail Bar. A 15 minute walk and you are at the lovely Oura beach. For 5 Euros a taxi will take you to the Old town. We couldn't have asked for better weather.
The owners of the apartment - Mo and Nige are lovely. Very friendly and accommodating and it is great that they live next door so you don't have to go far to speak to them about anything.
The kitchen had all the utensils you could ask for. The apartment was spotless and it is great that beach towels are supplied. You could always get sunbeds by the pool which for August was brilliant. The shallow end of the main pool is not that shallow but there is a baby pool for the little ones.
We are definitely going to book it again and would recommend it.
