From the owner

Fine modern apartment with views to sea and lift access. This 2 bed apartment accommodates up to 6 people. There is ensuite to master bedroom and a family bathroom. Large living room opening onto large south and west facing balcony - ideal for evening drinks as the sun sets! Inside there is a large separate kitchen and entrance hall and inner hall to bedrooms. The apartment is equipped with TV,DVD player and WiFi. The kitchen has hob, oven, microwave, washing machine toaster electric kettle, mixer and sandwich maker. Outside a fine shared pool gets the sun almost all day and gives scope for a decent swim and with a very shallow section for very young children (about 15cm deep). There are sun beds around the pool. Located on a slight rise there are good views all round and open country and villas to the rear of the property. A short walk leads to the sea front which has been upgraded and is largely pedestrianised. Armacao de Pera is a nice town with a fishermens end and good restaurants with excellent fresh fish dishes. There is a good range of local shops and a covered daily market for fish and vegetables.

This is second visit . We found it as good this time as last time. The apartment was spotlessly clean. We would not hesitate to return again here.

Guest - Smith of Bristol; May 2011

A Great 10 days. The kids loved the apartment and the pool; plenty of space and very comfy beds. Good breeze every night. Great sunsets. Recommend Slide and Splash and Zoo Marine as great days out and also Albandeira beach – on the way to Carvoeiro.

Guest - Woodward of Bristol; July-August 2011

Our best family holiday to date! There is nothing we could find fault with. A great apartment, wonderfully set out and equipped. The pool is great; the local beach and restaurants are fab. Would love to come back.

Owner's reply:
Tis review is only poor because the guests say they could not get the internet. The internet has worked for every other guest to date and these guests di not advise either us or our lady out in Algarve of any problem. As we knew nothing of any issue they had with the internet we were not in a position to deal with it. We have since asked our lady in Algarve to test it herself to check that it is working. It seems to us unreasonable to down grade our position when they do not raise any issue they feel they have.

Owner's reply:
We thank our guests and as always try to accommodate any reasonable wishes. We have long been concerned at the loss in the recent years of the TV channels that once were available via satellite, but that disappeared when channels changed to a new satellite with a more focused beam that does not include south of Portugal. However we have found that using the internet we can pick up most of the terrestrial channels from UK. These may be transferred to the TV with a usb link cable from the computer /tablet to the TV. We thank our guest who looked after the apartment so everyone was happy. We see that we have achieved a number of 5 ratings recently and will try to continue to deserve that rating.

Never had an experience like this before

Owner's reply:
Never had a Client like this before and hopefully never again. nothing we did or provided was right. Clients can ask for extra food or provisions but we have always offered a super 2 bedroomed apartment in a fine quiet location at a lower rental than many smaller apartments. We cannot then put in many provisions that may not be required. They chose to save money and arrive very late but expect our lady to be there to meet them - most clients arrive by early evening not around midnight! When it came to leaving they did not just want to leave their luggage as we had expected but stayed in the apartment making it difficult for our lady to do the cleaning and prepare for the next guests. This was in the height of the season and we were fully booked! Please just read the other reviews to get a more realistic picture of what is offered. As a result of these guests we will not offer anyone the right to stay late on the leaving day until we are certain we have no guests arriving shortly after they leave; a shame but one learns that some people will not co-operate at all.

We continue to try to keep the apartment up to a high standard. We will investigate further the TV problem and offer advice on getting programmes to our guests once we have completed a review on a visit .ourselves. There are a number of DVDs available in the apartment for use by guests, but you are of course welcome to bring your own selection. We feel the balcony and the nice long shared pool are particularly good features of the apartment.
