“Villa 41”
Reviewed 13 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This was our 1st time in Portugal and we loved it. There were 10 of us in the villa and there was ample room. Situated in a good location within easy walking distance of beach,new town and the old town. The pool was a really good size and sun terraces nice to sit at night and enjoy the view. Susanna was very approachable and helpful. Would defo go back

“We were robbed”
Reviewed 2 April 2016 for a stay in August 2015
2
people found this review helpful

This is now my third review of this villa I have no idea why the other two were removed as they were a true account of our holiday in this villa, OK on arrival villa is lovely especially the pool although it's very cold even in August, the description does say heated pool but sadly this wasn't available in August we did ask if we could pay for pool heating as we had babies with us but this was unavailable so the lovely pool wasn't used much. The villa is as pictured the outside area is much nicer the inside is quite dark but clean. There is a panic button but susanna the rental manager told us not to press under any circumstances we asked why it was there she said owners had installed it for some reason and to make sure the children didn't press it. On the second night half of us went out while the rest got ready, when they left they passed us oldies on the way back to the villa so the villa was empty for no more than one hour probably less my son had locked all doors and windows on leaving. When we arrived back with the children my young grandson asked for his iPad which we could not find along with mine and my daughters, we could not find them when the others returned they didn't know where they were we had actually been robbed though there was no sign of forced entry and everything was in place all our money phones iPads etc were gone. We called Susanna and the police they could not find where they had got in either, this ruined our holiday and I could not believe it when Susanna asked was we saying this for insurance reasons, we were outraged we lost everything and only half of us were insured anyway the younger ones who weren't receiving a harsh lesson, we were up all night waiting for the police and Susanna her reaction was shocking it was unheard of according to her. The following morning we realised every other villa on the street had alarms and cctv though we were told not to set the alarm, or use the panic button which surely begs the question why it has been fitted in the first place. As a family we have stayed in villas every year and never experienced any problems and for the above reasons I would not recommend this property and would like to warn future guests to be extra vigilant and make sure someone is in the villa at all times.

As property owner of villa 41 I would like to comment on review.
The answer is late because the villa has been almost fully rented for the summer 2016 already in january, so we have not looked at the webside until recently.
You have made a lot of complains in your review that have not been published, that is not in our control. And maybe all complaints were a way to disparage our villa as a vengeance because the breakage deposit was retained because you had to pay for all your damages to our villa. You knew the villa was a non smoking property. Every time vila management went to the villa there was a severe smell of some not very pleasant tobacco smell all over the villa and there were a considerable amount of burns from tobacco buds both inside and outside the property. The breakage deposit didn´t cover all the expenses incurred by you.
To be robbed is defenetly nothing that is common in our area. It is very nice area close to the sea and most of the houses have alarms because the owners can afford that. And normally the thiefs avoid going into houses with alarms as they don´t know if it is on or not.
Nevertheless we have a safetybox, so all of our guest should be safe about their belongings. All our guests are informed in our guestmap that the house has a safetybox. It is a pity that you didn´t use the safetybox.
The heater for the swimmingpool is used during the colder summer season march to may and sep to oct. Normally the water is warm from the pure sunshine from june to august. There is also an electric restriction with the poolheater – the electricity isn´t enough for both the heater and all the six aircondition in the same time. If the temperature in the poolwater will be below 21 degrees Celsius, villa management will discuss solutions with the guests.
Vila management, who is professionally renting out properties, is responsible for 13 properties and has never had such a bad customer as you. Of course you are not welcome to return to any of properties she looks after. That is of course also the reason why vila management’s temper was effected. Other reviews have just positive responses to Our vila management..

“10/10 Villa”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Came across this Villa with no reviews but it looked good so went ahead and booked it. Really good decision fantastic location and really good facilities especially the poolside! Susana the villa Owner also organised transfers for us from the airport and back which worked out cheaper then getting a taxi. We spent most nights at the strip ideal location never a need for a taxi within walking distance. Would 100% recommend suitable for any age and group as its both close to the old town and new town. We were a group of 12 lads 19 to 20.

“Top Villa in a Good Location”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We Rented for 10 nights late July early Aug 2015, the Villa is in a great location less than 5 mins walk to some local mini markets, Restaurants and a couple of small Bars. Just over 5 mins walk down to the beach past a few of the aforementioned shops, bars. The beach is very good with sunbed & parasol hire available along with a selection of water sports and about a 15 min walk along the sand to Fishermans beach at the old Town.
The old town is around a 20 min walk down hill then back up but a taxi back is only 5 euros + tip. the new town or Strip is about 15 mins walk mainly on the level (never needed a taxi back)
The villa looks stunning from the outside with the furniture a bit older fashioned and the toilets probably need updating.
The pool area is fantastic with 10 great sun loungers and a great sized pool, outside toilet and wash basin, a good shaded terrace area with large dining table overlook the pool. The only minor issues we had was the temp and control of the water flow in the showers.
as i said these things where very minor and reading the owners info they have just purchased the property late 2014 and are changing things bit by bit, once complete the villa will be an even more amazing place to stay.
