Well equipped, our self catering villa had a small private garden and nice balcony from where we had a nice view over Tofinho and the sea. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The local manager, Mr. Domingos, is very helpful, discreet and professional.

We had a three bedroom and it was well set up, great location if you don't mind not being in the village. Beach is a quick walk down a little path. Stunning pool. Great service from the staff - although didn't always knock! Loved the little internal courtyard and privacy of the three bedrooms. We went with friends who had...

We had a great time at Casa John. We rented two 3 bedroom houses with sea views for our group and we had a blast. The houses were spacious enough for our whole group to meet up for dinner in one house each night. We bought prawns and lagosta from the local fishermen/boys that passed by on the road everyday....

Family holiday with Grannies, children and grandchildren. Wonderful. Stunning views and beaches, really well equipped lodges. Fresh prawns, crayfish and fish in abundance. Staff helpful. Difficult to find in the dark for newcomers but that in itself an adventure! What a pleasure. Thank you

the house was much more thet we expected. It's situated ina wonderful position with a terrace where you can have breakfast while watching dolphins and whales. The staff is very helpful. A suggestion: get fresh lagostas from the local fishermen (we paid them 250 mtn a kilo) and use the barbecue in the internal garden.

We were in a group of 6 friends for 10 nights over Christmas and New Year. The house was more than spacious, super comfortable and built for entertaining. It was also frequently cleaned. Casa John is perfectly nestled away from the hustle and bustle of the town with paths leading off to quieter beaches... but still close enough to walk...

We love Casa John. The hospitality of the staff is always super and the accommodation is gorgeous and not to forget to mention the view and sparkling pool. Walking distance to town but sufficiently far for total peace and quiet.

We were in a group of 12 adults and 4 children (4-10yrs) sharing three of the six cottages. The cottages were very spacious and comfortable to live in. They were well equiped, although 2 kettles and 2 toasters broke during the visit. Some parts of the cottages had seen better days and needed fixing such as the toilet and door...

“We stayed in 2 houses. First house no. 6 Which has 2 bedrooms which were comfortable and were equal in size and house number 3 which has 3 bedrooms but only master bedroom is comfortable because rest of the 2 rooms were very small and therefore we felt little bit hot and suffocated. Its only fine if you'll keep the door open but the view from the balcony was amazing.”
