“Little Bit of Paradise”
Reviewed 28 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Well the picture gallery does Villa Kimbo no favors, it far surpasses what you will expect seeing pictures. The Villa itself is located approx. 5 minute drive from Luz town and is so peaceful it is un-true, no noise or light pollution at all. When we arrived the Villa was ready with a lovely welcome pack which saved on running around on immediate arrival, and proved to be a wonderful home for our week. I cannot honestly remember the last time I was so relaxed, all amenities are on site, including Pool, Patios, BBQ. The owners were away when we arrived but called in to see us later in the week but other than that we were left to our own devices, and if I had my choice I would happily have over stayed our time, indefinitely. Would I recommend Villa Kimbo? Undoubtedly, Would I stay again at Villa Kimbo? Yes, yes, yes, in a heartbeat. Just I may not be so easy to remove if I visit again.

“Fantastic Villa”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Well what can we say as well, we can only reiterate what lot of other reviews has said..
We also found Jose & Teresa most obliging hosts and owners...
The welcome was fantastic, even though we were far too early to take over the Villa..( After 3pm)
Jose told us not to worry, and directed us to one of the outside terraces...
He then promptly went and served us up with cold beers (Most Welcome they were too)..
When we were allowed to enter the Villa we found a wonderful "Welcome Pack" with all fresh supplies you could want to start your holiday...Beers Wines, Bread, Ham, Butter Ect, Ect, too many to list...
Our hosts then left us to get on with it and unpack ect...
The Villa was very clean as was the bedding, we found extra bedding in the wardrobes as well as extra pillows & blankets (If was Needed), and also all towels including Pool/Beach towels..
The next morning both our hosts arrived and checked with us if we needed anything, or we have had any problems..(None was Found)..
We found the position of the Villa very private and quiet, (except for the birds and the excited geese) ...which we all loved to hear..(being Country Bumpkins) we also had fun in feeding them in the morning.. they seem to know what time we took our El Fresco breakfast, and wanted some of ours...
On one of outside 2 terraces...Our weather for late Sept/early Oct was very good to us..Sun, Sun, sun & very warm during the day....
You Definitely need a car (unless you are very active and love walking) as the main shops are 3/4 miles away, with plenty of our well known supermarkets such as : Lidl, Aldi, and also theirs as Intermarche, all very easy to find in Lagos...
The only negative we could find in Villa, is our bed was very hard (Our Personal Preference), some others might prefer that type of bed....
We could not praise the Villa and of course the owners in making our holiday experience fantastic, keep up the good work Jose & Teresa.....
We will return one day, soon.... Many Thanks..

“Wonderfully warm welcome and a home from home villa”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

people found this review helpful

Well , what can I say .... The owners Joze & Theresa deserve five stars on their welcome alone. We stayed at villa Kimbo , myself , partner and 3 children from 30th August to 5th Sept and we did not want to leave !!

We arrived late in the evening and was welcomed by Joze , a very warm hearted genuine person who instantly made us feel at home. The fridge was stocked of milk ,juice , bread , butter ,jam , wine, ham , cheese .....everything you'd need for a supper and breakfast ! We felt safe and secure and knew help was never far away if needed.

The villa is huge and spotlessly clean with everything you can think of and more to make your stay a comfortable and pleasant one.

From inflatables to ironing board and even washing powder for the washing machine.For extra plates and bowls check out the cupboard in the living room! And for mosquito plugs check out the drawer outside the main bedroom. Although none of us were bitten at all by anything,

The grounds are perfectly kept and the orchard offers an abundance of fruit which Joze told us to pick and use. The grounds are private , no one overlooking you at all. There is a smaller villa in the grounds but we never saw the people staying there as its so private.

The geese are lovely and it was great to be able to feed them every day.

The children enjoyed the huge pool which is sloped and gets quite deep at the deep end. My children can all swim but I guess this is not ideal for toddlers, however there was a blow up paddling pool to hand that I would have used if needed.

There is also a children's play area at the front of the property and a jacuzzi (payable locally).

There is ample bedding and towels ( inc. beach towels) provided.

The beach at Praia de Luz is 5 minutes by car and is lovely and sandy, Lagos is around 10 mins away and also has lovely beaches and great little shopping area along the front and back streets.

We stocked up at the intermarche in Lagos for the week which saved us lots of money. We did go out in Praia de Roche and Sangres a couple of times. We didn't venture out in Espiche but there are a few restaurants. We couldn't find a shop there though !

All in all a wonderful Villa run by wonderful people. I would certainly return in a heart beat and highly recommend this Villa to anyone wanting a laid back peaceful holiday , no noise , no hassle just perfect

“Perfect Villa holiday with a fantastic pool”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

Four of us spent a week here in June 2015, what a lovely holiday. The welcome from Teresa and Jose was wonderful and they had provided everything we needed to settle in as well as directions to the nearest supermarkets which were open late even on a Sunday - we used the supermarket and Lidl at Lagos - 10 minutes drive away. The villa was spotlessly clean, well laid out and provided lots of space inside and out. The kitchen had everything we needed including a juicer so we could have fresh orange juice daily from their own orchard. The pool was fantastic and cool after a day exploring the nearby beaches but never cold.
The villa is in a very quiet location so a car is essential but does mean peace and quiet at night. Shops and beaches are a short drive away.

Thank you Teresa and Jose we can't wait to visit again.

“Perfect”

Following a warm welcome from owners Jose and Teresa we settled straight in to our stay. The villa is in a perfect location for us - in the countryside but a short drive to the supermarket, shops and beach. The villa is very comfortable with internet access and satellite TV (if you really need it!). The villa itself really is a wonderful place to stay. The internal layout, décor and furnishings are excellent. Outside, the pool is fantastic and very clean with plenty of sun loungers, tables and chairs etc. - again all clean and in nearly new order. All supported by a great BBQ area too. In fact we only left the villa to stock up on food and drink the whole time we were there as it just had everything we needed!
We fully intend to undertake a return visit and see Teresa and Jose again. They really are magnificent hosts - always there if you needed anything at all whilst letting you enjoy your stay in peace at the same time!
