“The best holiday we have ever had”
Reviewed 8 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Having returned from our holiday a few weeks ago and got back into the 'rat race' i thought it was time to write a review about our holiday. From start to finish i can honestly say it was a world class experience. Karl and Daphne not only greeted us, they took us out for lunch and showed us the best supermarkets, they were there if needed but kept in the background.Nothing was too much trouble, you are treated as a friend not just another punter.
The 'nest' is very well kitted out, very clean with a welcome pack that included cold beer which was very welcome in the Algarve heat.
We were so happy we booked to return while we were still on holiday there.
If you only go to Portugal once, book the 'Nest' and enjoy a fabulous holiday with world class hosts

“A relaxing break in the Eastern Algarve”
Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We enjoyed a relaxing break in the Eastern Algarve. The surrounding villages offer great restaurants, lovely markets and lots to see and do. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and nothing is too much trouble for Karl and Daphne

“First Class Holiday Accommodation with the perfect hosts”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We shall certainly return to spend another holiday here. Karl and Daphne are just delightful and made our holiday most enjoyable. The "Nest" has everything you may need and enjoys wonderful panoramic views over the Algarve while enjoying a countryside situation which is peaceful and relaxing. Only minutes from the hustle and bustle of Faro and within easy reach of the airport. The bird life is stunning with azure-winged magpies, warblers, doves, spotless starlings, hoopoe and woodpecker - and that's just in the garden of Casa Lami! This is a "must visit" location, ideal for a couple and you are assured of a warm and friendly welcome. We could not recommend this highly enough. What a great holiday we had! Thanks K & D!

“Perfect 10”
Reviewed 28 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Before our trip Karl emailed helpful tips on car rental and nearby supermarkets alongside excellent instructions to find 'the nest'. On evening arrival we found thoughtful essentials provided in the kitchen and bathroom including a tasty selection of items in the fridge. 'The nest' was spotless and is definitely on the quaint side on first encounter. It sits high up on a hillside allowing a great outlook of the Faro area. Karl and Daph are available on site as their house is next door and offered great advice on things to do, places to see and local restaurants. They are also naturally tactful and our privacy was also respected. Walking or jogging is a pleasure in the neighbouring countryside using 'the nest' as a starting point with breathtaking views on offer from the top of the rise. In short we had a ball and will be back. Obrigado Karl and Daph!

Karl and Daphne definitely deserve the great reviews they have had so far. They are exceptionally accommodating and the location of the nest is great too. The surrounding area is fairly quiet and remote but also close enough for shops and restaurants... I would highly recommend this to anyone who needs a nice relaxing break :) Thanks Karl and Daph!
