“Perfect place for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful part of Portugal”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at TaviraPad for 2 weeks during July 2016 and could not have wished for a better experience. The owners, Merry and Simon, have put a great deal of thought into TaviraPad to make sure that it is welcoming and comfortable.

The flat was as described and absolutely spotless with lots of extra touches which made it a real home from home. Wine, beer, fresh bread and oranges were all waiting for us on arrival - all very much enjoyed and appreciated.

As well as a spacious apartment the wow factor is the large private terrace where we spent lots of time. Don't miss the added bonus of a lovely private terrace on the top floor. We enjoyed many evenings with a glass of wine, lying on the sunloungers stargazing. Bliss!

TaviraPad is a really pleasant 10 minute walk from the centre of the town and thanks to Merry and Simon's great recommendations, we had lovely meals every day. If you don't feel like moving from the sunlounger then Lidl and Aldi are within a five minute walk and the perfect places to stock up on supplies for lazy lunches on the terrace.

Merry and Simon have the perfect combination for a successful holiday let - good communication and thoughtful touches which made it a very happy experience for us. Thank you!

Liked best: Merry and Simon's attention to detail was the icing on the cake of a very enjoyable stay
Liked least: Trip Advisor booking process was confusing- not the fault of the owners. Their common sense and good communication solved problems caused by Trip Advisor's booking

Thank you Linda and Bernard. It was an absolute pleasure to have you stay at TaviraPad! You were 5-Star guests from the very start! It gave us a lot of joy to know that TaviraPad worked it's magic on you and days on the terraces under the deep blue sky during long afternoons and nights under the stars gave you such a happy and memorable holiday!!! I hope that we will have the chance to see you here again before too long!!!

“Fantastic Apartment”

Styed at his apartment from 6/6/16-13/6/16

My wife and I have for many years rented apartments and Villas in a number of places in Europe, rarely have we had an apartment such as this.
On arrival we were met by Merry and Simon the owners a lovely friendly couple made us feel most welcome. On entering the apartment, it is clear as well as being absolutely spotless, that a great deal of time and effort has been made preparing it for our arrival.
You would think Merry and Simon must have looked at the comments/complaints for other apartments and decided to make sure they did not make the same mistakes, as they have catered for every eventuality, down to a pen and note pad for your shopping list. The quality of the furnishings both inside and out as well as the décor is of a very high standard. The items of food and wine that were provided and not requested by us was fantastic and very much appreciated after our journey. They even provide a large Lidl supermarket only 10 mins walk from the door (well maybe not personally)
The apartment is large and roomy with a fantastic terrace you access from both bedrooms and the kitchen. A private roof terrace is also available, although we never used it.

Altogether a first class apartment not to be missed I only hope if you are reading this and decide to book you and any other guest treat the place with the respect both it and Merry and Simon deserve

Very pleasant stay

Very nice apartment near the center of Tavira. Super welcome from Merry and Simon. We appreciated that when we arrived, the fridge was well stocked for our attention (the wine was excellent!). The apartment was very clean and very pleasant to live in.The neighborhood is very quiet and parking in front of the building is nice. We took advantage of the private terrace of the 3rd floor always very sunny.
We highly recommend this location.

Die Wohnung im Hochparterre ist sehr gut ausgestattet und ansprechend möbliert. Bei der Ankunft wurden wir sehr freundlich begrüßt und mit allen nötigen Informationen versehen. Merry und Simon sind wirklich sehr nett. Im Kühlschrank fanden wir z.B. Brot, Marmelade, Wein, Bier.... weit mehr als wir erwartet hätten. Die Wohnung liegt in einer ruhigen Wohnanlage Nähe zur Altstadt. Wer Sonne schätzt, geht auf die Dachterrasse im 3. Stock. Die Terrasse in der Wohnung hingegen liegt im Schatten, jedenfalls im Herbst. Im übrigen können wir nur die positiven Bewertungen bestätigen!! Sehr gefallen hat uns der Drink zum Sonnenuntergang mit fantastischem Blick auf der Dachterrasse der Bar Nomad im Hotel Maria Nova. Vielen Dank Merry und Simon für einen unbeschwerten Aufenthalt. Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Thank you Bjoern for your fine review!! So glad that you enjoyed a happy and relaxed time in Tavira!!! It was a pleasur to meet you and we look forward to welcoming you again!

The apartment in the Hochparterre is very well equipped and attractively furnished. On arrival we were greeted very friendly and provided with all necessary information. Merry and Simon are really very nice. In the refrigerator we found e.g. Bread, jam, wine, beer .... far more than we would have expected. The apartment is located in a quiet residential area close to the old town. If you like sun, go to the roof terrace on the 3rd floor. The terrace in the apartment, on the other hand, is in the shade, at least in autumn. Otherwise, we can only confirm the positive reviews !! We enjoyed the drink at sunset with a fantastic view of the roof terrace of the bar Nomad in the hotel Maria Nova. Thank you Merry and Simon for an immaculate stay. We will be back.
