“Fantastic Apartment in a Beautiful Part of the Eastern Algarve”

Reviewed 12 Mar 2016

This was our second stay in this lovely, well equipped apartment in Cabanas. It has everything you need to make for a good holiday - 2 good sized bedrooms, 2 bath/shower rooms, huge lounge, good sized kitchen with everything you will need (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave etc) and a lovely sunny front balcony overlooking the beautiful communal pool which has ample sunbeds. There are lots of extras - towels provided, hairdryer, huge Tv with a good choice of DVD'S, books, games, cards etc. The complex has underground parking (though a car is not really necessary in Cabanas as the train station is very close by, and cheap to use), a table tennis table, a gym and a football table. The bars and a good choice of restaurants are literally just around the corner. It's cheap to eat out in this part of the Algarve. The border to Spain is very easily accessible, as is the gorgeous up market little town of Tavira and the gorgeous restaurants and beaches of Fuseta . Absolutely love this area and the mild climate; the flights are short, cheap to buy and it's only 40 minutes from Faro - can't wait till we're back again later in the year!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely review, we agree with everything you have said, it's the perfect place to return to whatever the season, look forward to welcoming you back. Charmayne and Ron.

“The whole experience was fantastic from start to finish.”

Reviewed 16 Nov 2015

The apartment was outstanding, Ron and Charmayne - thank you for letting us stay in your homely apartment. Also, the couple that looked after the apartment, Dina and Vitor, were so helpful and friendly which helped make the holiday. Local restaurants and bars must visit, not a bad word to say.

Owner's reply: Thank you, glad you had fun, it would be hard not to enjoy Cabanas! Look forward to hearing from you again soon. Ron and Charmayne

“Fantastic stay - beautiful apartment, great location and amazing sunshine”

Reviewed 12 Nov 2015

What can I say... simply, fantastic! From booking with the owners of the apartment to them keeping in touch, offering us help and advise, accommodating our needs, they were brilliant, Thank you. The apartment was so spacious, very clean and modern, everything we needed on hand. Swimming pool in the complex was so clean and quiet to chill by the pool in the sunshine. The town very quant with a great selection of bars serving lovely cocktails, restaurants for beautiful food with very reasonable prices and the beach with miles of white sand was stunning. Everyone was so friendly in resort, very warming and relaxing...and the couple looking after the apartment were so professional, friendly and entertaining. All in all - an amazing little break with friends. I WILL be definitely returning (for longer next time). We were so lucky to have wall to wall sunshine and didn't expect to be sunbathing this time of year... an added bonus. Thank you so much to you all x

Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed your stay, we look forward to hearing from you very soon. Ron and Charmayne

Really enjoyed our two weeks in this apartment in Cabanas. It was very spacious and had everything we needed. It could easily accommodate 6 people so my husband and I had plenty of room and a bathroom each! Very handy for local bars and restaurants and bus for Tavira just around the corner. Caught train a couple of times to Monte Gordo and Villa Real. Eating out was a pleasure as always in Portugal and so cheap. This was our fourth trip to the East Algarve and will definitely be returning again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for a lovely review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay, you are welcome back anytime.

“Fantastic apartment in a beautiful town, superb beach,”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2015

Even before we booked nothing was too much trouble for Ron and Charmayne as they answered all our questions about the apartment and area persuading us it was a great place for us to holiday. Communication was very helpful and friendly before our departure and on arrival we couldn't have been more pleased with the apartment, the size, equipment, location, all were perfect. Dina and Vitor were very helpful and it was reassuring to know they were on hand if necessary. The apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped for our family (2 adults 4 children 7-18) The pool was wonderful, lots of room for sunbathing and enjoying the water - we even had the pool to ourselves at times even though it is shared with the other 22 apartments. The balcony of the main room is spacious and overlooks the pool, handy to call everyone in to eat! It is accessed via a side gate which is seconds from the apartment entrance. The complex was quiet and well maintained. Transfers from the airport via shuttle direct worked very well with no need at all for a car whilst there. Local transport is good and a trip down the lagoon to Tavira a must. A highlight for our teenage children was the unlimited free wifi which also worked around the pool area! A 5 minute walk to the nearest Spar shop selling the basic groceries and lovely fresh bread. Only a few minutes stroll to the sea front and the wonderful boardwalk made for lovely picturesque evenings out, with great restaurants, ice cream parlours and cheap beer!! Cabanas is a beautiful town with friendly locals and a relaxed atmosphere We can't wait to return :)

Owner's reply: A Big thank you for letting us persuade you that Cabanas is the place to be for a relaxing holiday for all ages. Look forward to welcoming you all here next year. Cheers Ron and Charmayne

“A great find!”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2015

First and foremost, communication with the owners was excellent from when we booked to our return to the UK. I initially enquired about the availability of the apartment after reading other reviews and the owner was very quick to respond which meant I could go ahead a book flights. The apartment itself was very clean and tidy and had all the necessary kitchen appliances which meant we could enjoy meals there and also travel light. There was even a cool bag and ice block that we used for our days out. This spacious apartment is in a nice small complex (I'm guessing it's the smallest or one of the smallest complexes in the area). We stayed there with our 6 and 4 year old and spent time everyday down by the pool. We never struggled to find a sun lounger regardless of the time we ventured to the pool. Another positive is that it is within 5 minutes walk from the main boardwalk and restaurants. There is also a Spar a couple of minutes walk away which is handy for basics such as water and milk. I would recommend a trip to the shopping centre in Tavira for those planning to do a big shop. Also, many of the good restaurants don't open in the evening until 1830-1900 so it is worth booking in advance especially if you have young children who are not used to staying up late. Our favourite place to eat in the evening was Europa. D'Ines (which is very near the apartment) is also very good. The town of Tavira is worth a visit especially by water taxi. There are various kiosks on the boardwalk offering boat trips and kayak hire. We had a fabulous time staying in Ron and Charmaynes apartment. We would return and would also recommend it to family and friends. Thank You to Vitor and Dina who were local contacts during our stay. Thank You Ron and Charmayne

Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed our apartment and Cabanas, we hope to see you again soon. Thank You. Ron and Charmayne

“Not a bad thing to say!”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2015

Not long back from our recent stay at this apartment and we couldn't be happier. We were greeted by the lovely Dina and Vitor, who showed us how everything worked etc. The apartment is much bigger than we expected so with 4 adults and 2 children there was no getting under each others feet! The balcony looks over the pool which is accessible through a side gate and has plenty of sunbeds and parasols. There is also a toilet not far from the pool which was great with small children, we didnt have to keep running upstairs with them! You dont have to walk far to find restaurants, bars and cafes of all shapes and sizes, selling a great variety of dishes and drinks. None of us had a bad meal here the whole holiday and the beer is pretty cheap Would recommend wandering down the side streets to find the hidden restaurants! We took many trips to the next town Tavira, which was beautiful and well worth a visit. Either by taxi for under €10 (or by water taxi if you're brave enough!) Or by train. The boat to the beach took under 2 minutes and is beautiful, pure sand with a couple of little cafes for food, drink and ice creams. We had a brilliant time here, we can't thank the owners enough for their help with booking flights and their knowledge of the local area and things to do! We can't wait to go back!!

Owner's reply: Glad you enjoyed your time in Cabanas, you are welcome back anytime. Ron and Charmayne

“Beautiful well-equipped apartment very close to the beach in Cabanas.”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2015

This apartment in stunning Cabanas had all you could need for a holiday abroad .... and more! Large rooms with good quality furniture, two bedrooms both with en suite bath/shower rooms, well equipped kitchen including a dish washer and washing machine, large lounge/dining area and a beautiful balcony with sun chairs (where the sun shone all day every day for the three weeks that we were there in February/March). Excellent connection to wifi at all times, and a beautiful pool added to our enjoyment. There was a large TV and many dvd's if you fancy a night in! The apartment was a short walk to the prom area which has a good choice of bars and good, value-for-money restaurants, and plenty to do in the evenings (live music, a karaoke bar etc). We used the train a lot which made getting around the area very cheap and easy to do. We went to Tavira many times (also easy to walk to, along the salt flats) Albufeira, and Fuseta A (amazing sea food restaurants and beaches). Would highly recommend this apartment and we will definitely go back again soon! The owners were very informative before, during and after our holiday.

Owner's reply: Thank You for your lovely review, glad you enjoyed our apartment and the local area, we would love you to come back to Cabanas, Look forward to hearing from you again soon. Charmayne and Ron

“Location, Location, Location! Great Apartment, Great Resort!”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2014

We spent a month in Casa das andorinhas iberica and had a fantastic time. I would recommend this place to anybody who is seeking a relaxing vacation. The quality and standard of the apartment was high and the location was excellent. Step out of the front door, turn the corner and 2 minutes later you are walking the splendid boardwalk, restaurants, bars, shops are on your left and the rich beauty of the Ria Formosa on your right - now what more do you want from a vacation? The short boat trip to the fabulous Cabanas beach is a very pleasant morning commute! The vast sandy beach was always a pleasure. The nearby town of Tavira is a beautiful traditional Portuguse town which we also fell in love with. Having been to many places in the Algarve this is without argument the best. Our hosts could not have been more helpful. Nothing was any trouble for Ron and Charmayne. I would like to thank especially Jeff and Wendy, the property managers. They do a fantastic job at making sure everything is right for you. Ron and Charmayne - Thank you.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your kind words and the pleasure in enjoying the area as much as you did . We are also of the opinion it is the best !! You are welcome back any time , hope to see you soon , Ron and Charmayne
