"Hot, Happy and Heavenly Equiped"

This poolside house has everything you need for a long or short stay. Within walking distance of Old Town and beautiful beach. Well enough equipped to just stay poolside in the lovely green surroundings if you prefer. Clean and Comfortable.

Thank you Karen for your nice comments. I hope you all return soon.

"Great place to stay"

This is a lovely villa which is exactly as described on the website. It is well furnished, communication is very good, and on site facilities are as described: a good on site pool, spacious and air conditioned rooms. It's a 20 minute walk to the town but there's an excellent restaurant within 5 mins (A cocheira). A small but perfectly suitable mini market within 10 mins and two larger supermarkets a drive or 15 min walk. If you want to experience the Algarve, this is a very good place to locate.

Thank you for your lovely review. Please come again one day!!! Cathy and Gary.

"It does exactly what it says on the tin"

Everything the owners state is true.The villa was perfect in every sense from arrival to departure.Clean/spacious/secure/bootiful views day and night/good local restaurant/supermarket etc.A relaxing short walk to the old town where all you might require is to hand at very reasonable prices.The gentleman the owners offer to collect you is a true ex pat and always helpful, he is a busy man so if you need to book him for outings please do so a.s.a.p.It is our intention to return.Thanks again for everything Cathy and Gary.

Hi Pete, thank you so much for your great review - it was a pleasure to communicate with you and we really hope that you'll book again. Enjoy you holiday in Canada next year. Oh,and thanks for all your hard work watering the plants!! HA HA X

This lovely property is situated in a private gated garden with shared pool - the sun terrace and pool really made our holiday. The property is very well equipped and would suit families as well as couples. It is in a quiet area with 2 restaurants and a coffee shop close by. The local supermarket is within walking distance but a taxi home is recommended. The owners of this property were extremely helpful when booking and nothing was too much trouble.

Thank you for your nice comments. Hope you'll return sometime in the future.

"Fantastic Villa, great location, great price..!! (can I please go back)"

Stayed here with my wife and another couple for an anniversary trip, what can I say, was blown away when we opened the front shutters and seen what we had. First time Ive ever stayed foreign where the accommadation looked even better in real life. The Villa was spotless, the outside area was maintained to a very high standard, clean, cut grass, clean pool - basically not a mark anywhere, top class. Inside the living areas was spacious (although spent most time outside) and modern, included LCD TV, DVD Player and selection of DVDs for kids etc, the kitchen had everything we needed the rooms had ensuites, again modern & spotless with air con and beautiful views from each balcony (one on each bedroom). Another toilet and shower downstairs and a communial BBQ area just out back of the property. The condominium had 6 other Villas, only 1 more in use apart from ours, so very quiet, though I imagine it wouldn't ever get too noisy with only 7 villas. The surrounding area looks new and all properties are highly maintained. Small cafe/pub at bottom of street with great value for money (bottle of Sagres 1.20 Euro.!) Theres a supermarket 5-6 min walk from villa stocking everything you'll need..or a large Lidle perhaps 15walk. Old Town is about 15min walk (if even) theres a path that basically takes you right down.....would go back tomorrow..!

Thank you so much for your great comments, we really appreciate that!! We take pride in keeping the place well maintained and we obviously have a good cleaner!! ---- Yes, you can go back again! Hope to hear from you again in the near future.

"Fabulous Villa"

Have just returned from staying at this fabulous villa. It was all it promised to be and the personal touches were very much appreciated e.g. milk in the fridge which was a very welcoming sight as we arrived at 1.00 in the morning also the games, dvds, videos were very much appreciated by my teenagers and helped from boredom setting in. This villa really is a home from home with everything you could possibly want could not fault it in any way. The gardens and pool were kept immaculately clean by the local couple. Kevin did our airport transfers and would highly recommend him. The old town is only a 20 min. stroll away along a lovely level pathway. The local supermarket is about 5 min walk where you can get all your daily needs and Lidl is about 20 min walk where you can get a big shop. Taxis pull in and out of Lidl all the time so you can easily get your shopping home if you have no car. I would highly recommend the local restaurant "Farm Village" food was fabulous and staff very friendly. The other restaurant "A Cocheira" is also another lovely restaurant but is a bit more pricey. We would have no problem in recommending this villa to anybody to say in and indeed hope to return again.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We certainly hope that you will go again sometime. It has been a pleasure communicating with you. Cathy and Gary.

"Quiet and comfortable"

We were in Cathy and Gary’s house from the 5th to the 21st of September, 2012. There are two bedrooms, both en-suit and with single beds. They are well situated to give privacy to two couples. Each has a balcony, one over the pool to the rear of the house and one on the front of the house, over the entrance. There is air conditioning in both bedrooms and a ceiling fan in the living room area. My wife and I along with her two sisters, all at retirement age, were comfortable in the accommodation. It is part of a quiet block of 8 town houses, in a residential part of Albufeira. The location combines the best of both worlds. It is about a 20 minute walk, 5 minute car ride or 4 euro taxi ride to the centre of old Albufeira if a person wants entertainment, but in a quiet setting if a person wants to rest and relax in the pool. There is a local person on the block that looks after the property and can be helpful although Cathy and Gary were very quick to sort out any questions we had on the phone.

"All the conveniences of Home in a Luxury Villa"

From the very first e-mail until the last Cathy was very prompt to reply and nothing was too much to ask for. We spent three relaxing weeks in her Casa Caterina enjoying all the amenities of home and more. The electronic gated entrance gave us peace of mind and at no time did we feel uneasy about the area. We enjoyed several dinners at a nearby restaurant recommended by Cathy and the fact that it was only a five minute walk away was a bonus. She gave us detailed instructions for walking or driving to Lidl which we found to be very helpful. Although the days were shorter since it was February we experienced three full weeks of sunshine and no clouds. We purchased a hiking book from the Albufeira tourist office and explored the countryside at length. This gave us the opportunity to see local Portuguese life as it has been over the generations. We come from an area of the world that has central heating so living without it was all part of the cultural experience. We did miss internet until we purchased access through Worton with a USB stick. The movies, music and books available at the villa were a nice touch. The outside furniture for the patios would also have been a plus if we had had a chance to use it. We will return later in the spring to enjoy Casa Caterina under somewhat warmer temperatures.

weather excellent nothing much to do in area no walks,excellent if your a sun worshiper,lovely resturant at end of road people very friendly .White goods a little iffy especially washing machine ,for me personally far too built up but if your lucky with the weather and your looking to be close to the town then its for you

Thank you for your comments. I have taken on board your comment about the washing machine and have now arrange to replace it with a brand new one as the other one (which is only 2 years old) seemed to have a mind of its own! However, we've had no other complaints about any of the other white goods. As regards 'nothing to do in the area' I make it very clear before people book that it is in a quiet area, but that it is very central to all attractions - most visitors comment that they didn't have enough time to do and see everything! Like most holiday resorts, a lot of places close down in the winter and especially Christmas week which is when you were there. I would love you to return in the spring/summer when you would see Algarve at it's best and I could recommend some good walks. Thank you for your custom.
