“Fantastic apartment in beautiful location”

Reviewed 6 May 2018

We stayed in Sao Rafael for 11 nights for our honeymoon. The apartment was very spacious, light and clean. It had everything we needed e.g. washing machine, beach equipment, hair dryer...The apartment area has a swimming pool we could have used and this would have been ideal for summer months. It was also handy to be so close to the Atlântico Hotel which has spa facilities and an indoor pool. I was very impressed with how well maintained the apartment area is. This apartment offers a balcony with a sea view. Stunning views while sharing food and a bottle of wine. We spent many days at the beach; there are two beaches near the apartment (5 - 10 minute walk). Both beaches had restaurants with lovely fish and seafood. I recommend the grilled sardines. We would love to come back in the near future and will stay in the same apartment again in Sao Rafael. Thanks, Craig and Samantha. p.s The guest book in the apartment was really useful as it gave us ideas on where to eat, local activities etc.

Owner's reply: Craig and Sam thank you for your kind comments. I am so pleased your honeymoon went well. Congratulations to you both and I wish you both well for the future. Best wishes Andrew.

Our stay at this apartment was superb! The location is near to the best beach we ever saw. At the beach is a wonderful restaurant with delicious fish dishes. The surrounding area is full of flowers and it’s wonderful to wake up and look out of the window and see the sea. We visited the old town, the museum and the marina. We enjoyed our stay! We can definitely recommend this apartment! Thanks to the owner for providing this superb apartment with all the things you need for a great holiday. Fikriye and Cengiz

Owner's reply: Fikriye and cengiz. Thank you very much for your kind words. I am so pleased you and your family had a lovely stay at my apartment and in Sao Rafael. You are welcome to return any time. Kind regards Andrew.

“Great relaxed getaway”

Reviewed 22 May 2017

The apartment is in a great location - Sao Rafael is so close to several beaches and restaurants and the pool is just a short walk through the lovely grounds. The apartment itself is well equipped with everything you could need. The view from the balcony is amazing and we spent many evenings enjoying using the BBQ. We used uber to pick up essentials from the Aldi nearby. Brilliant holiday, thank you!

Owner's reply: Dear Elaine. I am so pleased you had a lovely time. Thank you for your kind words. Please come back soon. You will be welcome anytime. Kind regards Andrew

“Lovely apartment, centrally located,but away from the hustle ,and close to the beach”

Reviewed 31 Mar 2017

My first impression was the lovely area when we arrived,and after entering the apartment was how lovely it was inside with all modcons you can imagine,then went out to the balcony and was delighted with the sea view. We quickly went down to the beach which is a short walk away and seen a lovely stretch of pure White sand and a restaurant right on the beach. We then went for dinner at the Seasons Restaurant which is part if the Ponte Grande which is about 15 minute walk,and the meal was lovely. Next day went to the Marina which is about 1mile & a half away,which is all down hill but would recommended a taxi to get back because the hill in sao Rafael is a 1 in 10 gradient?? We also went into Albuferia old town which for us was the highlight of our time their lively town with lovely walks along the beach and full of hotels, Restaurant's and entertainment. I spent lovely afternoons on the balcony chilling,where you can get the sun till 2pm, and read my books and enjoyed the tranquillity of the area. Everything about the apartment is first class with WiF,i sky television and music channels,the bedrooms were comfortable and if you wanted to stay longer their is a washing machine as well. I arranged yellowfish taxies which met us at airport and took us to the apartment and came back for us for a great price all available by email before you get their. Can recommended this apartment and the area for a great short break or a long holiday for couples or families .

Owner's reply: Hi Tom. Thank you very much for taking the time to leave me an in depth review. It is much appreciated. I am so pleased you had a great time here. Please let me know when you would like to return. Kind regards Andrew

“Short Stay”

Reviewed 7 Feb 2017

Luxurious apartment with excellent amenities, wonderful sea view from the balcony and has everything you need and more. Easy walking distance to a beautiful beach and fantastic restaurants. The pool area was delightful but being January didn't take a dip, but it would be a great place to chill during the summer. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay, everyone was helpful and friendly, and will definitely booked this apartment again for a longer stay.

Owner's reply: Hi kate. I am so glad you had a pleasant stay. Thank you for your kind words. Come back soon. Kind regards Andrew.

“Fantastic location, excellent accomodation”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2016

This holiday rental is fantastic. It’s been the best holiday we’ve had in ages. This two bedroom apartment is comfortable; the views are lovely. It’s very well managed and was spotlessly clean on arrival. Note there are two key holders! There is a communal pool a short walk away, the beach is also accessible by a ten-minute walk downhill. Nearby there is a lovely beach bar and restaurant. As a matter of fact, there were numerous great restaurants within walking distance. Praia Grande, Sao Rafael Beach bar and Margem Sul to name a few. We had a hire car and so drove to the supermarket for essentials, there’s a lot of room to store things in the apartment, there’s a fridge, a freezer and a small separate table top fridge for drinks which is really handy. The kitchen is well equipped with kettle and everything you need to make a nice dinner, most importantly, a dishwasher. Watching the sun set off the balcony was one of my favourite things to do. There’s a washing machine, iron etc. All the linen and towels are included except big beach towels which you will need to supply. It was really hot when we arrived so there was only a duvet cover on the bed, but as the nights cooled we found a duvet to put in it. It was amazingly quiet in the evenings, the bed was comfortable and we had such good sleep. We will definitely be back.

Owner's reply: Dear Marianna. It seems you had a very nice time at Sao Rafael. Thank you for your kind comments on my apartment. You will always be welcome to return. Kind regards Andy.

“Superb apartment in quiet picturesque location”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2016

We are a family of 5, with 3 older teens and we were blown away by the beautiful apartment and the fabulous views from the balcony. There was plenty of room even with using the bed settee as a fifth bed. The pool also was very good and we never had any issues getting sunbeds etc. It;s a shame the poolside bar/snack bar is closed as it would have been an asset but it's a quick walk to the apartment so not a problem. The one downside for us was Sao Raphael itself was a bit quiet and we found a car useful or taxi's into old town Albufeira or the marina for evenings out etc. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked a number of meals or used the BBQ on the balcony. All in all a super apartment, a beautiful resort and love the attention to detail of the little extras the owner had supplied such as sun parasols, an umbrella (I doubt it's ever used!) and lots of kitchen appliances. Thanks so much.

Owner's reply: Dear Julie. I am so pleased you and your family had a very nice stay at Sao Rafael. Also thank you for your kind comments on my apartment. I would always welcome you back at any time. kind regards. Andrew.

“Wonderful holiday made even better by a superb apartment!”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2016

We had our holiday here at Easter. It was a bit chilly in the evenings but the apartment was wonderfully cosy with heating as well as air conditioning. It was well equipped with excellent décor and a beautiful view from the balcony. The gorgeous sandy beach was only a short walk away and our 7 year old loved it! The restaurants were very good with friendly, helpful staff, and again only a short walk from the Sao Rafael apartments. Our favourite was the Praia Grande with wonderful sea views from the terrace. We hired a car in Albufeira Old Town, which was very useful for supermarket shopping and exploring. We loved our day trip to Villamoura where we played Crazy Golf at the Roman themed Park and had a lovely evening meal at the Marina. We would definitely visit again in the future.

Owner's reply: Dear Paul and Fiona. Thank you very much for leaving a review I am so pleased you all had a very good stay. Thank you for your kind remarks. I will always have an open door for you if in the future you would like to return. Kind regards Andrew.
