“Sublime tranquility”
Reviewed 23 April 2012 for a stay in August 2011

Relaxation with stunning views with that all important big pool and deck area- perfect. The unspoilt view of a valley is rare in the Algarve but this is what you get in great comfort with luxury added touches- wifi, skytv, 2 separate bar areas and games area so perfect for a family. If you want an hour of total peace the reading area bulit in the adjacent olive grow is a great touch. The bustle of Albefuria is a short drive if you want to liven things up or go dolphine spotting (recommended- se photo) but get back to your villa and you will have total peace and quiet,

“Kaya Kwanga is the perfect hideaway to kick back and relax with family and friends.”
Reviewed 1 March 2012 for a stay in July 2011

You cannot fail to relax and unwind at Kaya Kwanga. The set up is perfect for a family gathering. We travelled as a couple with two young boys and were joined by my Father to celebrate his 70th birthday and a teenage neice. My sister flew in as a suprise from Australia and we could not have had a better family reunion. The villa feels remote but is a short drive to local restaurnauts and a large shopping mall where you can purchase any provision you could ever need during your stay. The stunning beaches of the Algarve are an easy drive away.
The villa is very spacious with plenty of decks, verandahs and sitting areas so everyone has their own space. The lower deck is ideal for breakfast and lunch under the umbrella whilst the upstairs verandah is perfect for a bbq while watching the sun set with a bottle of local wine. The owners have managed to retain rustic charm while providing every modern comfort and the decor is very tastefull. The outside area is outstanding with a good sized pool with plenty of sunbeds and shady areas. The 'lookout' is perfect to chill out and take in the views over the olive groves.
Stephanie could not have been more helpful with the booking and the local property manager was extremely helpful while we were there. It all went like clockwork. Can't wait to return!

“Fantastic both in terms of Accommodation and Owners/Manager”
Reviewed 7 February 2012 for a stay in November 2011

I stayed with my family in Kaya Kwanga. There was seven of us, five adults and two young children.

We found the villa on the Internet and it appeared to be just what we needed. We weren't disappointed! It was fabulous.

A spacious and excellently equipped property, carefully maintained by the owners and manager so that it feels so homely whilst staying there. The facilities were many and varied.

The breakfast terrace overlooks the olive, almond, orange and pomegranate trees, and a path leads you down to the fantastic heated pool where we all had fun splashing around and relaxing on the loungers.

Attention to detail is incredible, in that everything needed is provided and so much more. You'll be able to see this from the many photos on the Internet of this property.
Things that you may not be aware of from the photos are all the extras that are in the villa, such as plenty of reading material for all ages, games to play, DVD's to watch.

The Manager there was extremely helpful and was easy to contact and happy to come over and see us about any queries we had.

Stephanie (Villa owner) was in touch regularly and treated us more like friends than rental strangers!

I would have no hesitation in recommending Kaya Kwanga to anyone wanting a spacious family villa to enjoy a relaxing holiday in Portugal.

A couple of points I would note: You need a vehicle to get out and about, and the drive to the Villa has some very narrow lanes to negotiate so it helps if you don't have huge hire vehicles to navigate the route with.

Management Response
24 Jul 2018
Thank you Nicole for taking the time to write this very nice review. I very much appreciate this. I have taken the liberty to translate the review into English below for our English speaking travelers:

"Villa Kaya Kwanga is idyllically situated outside of a tiny village. It is absolutely quiet and you are completely alone. The villa has enough space (we were four adults, three children) and is equipped with everything you need. The pool is very well maintained and you can relax there great. Super great beaches are easy to reach by car. The landlady is super nice and provides the guests before the holiday start with all the important information. An all-round successful holiday. We'll definitely be back !!"
