“Feels like home”
Reviewed 14 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Tavirapad is a comfortable apartment, fully equipped. It is within walking distance of the charming Tavira where there are many good restaurants. The beautiful Ria Formosa is located a few kilometers away where there are beautiful beaches. The owners are very friendly and give you a warm welcome with wine, beer, water, fresh fruit, etc. They are very interested in their guests and regularly ask if everything is okay. A fine place for a wonderful holiday.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My wife and I have just returned from a 10 night stay at tavirapad.
We found the whole holiday from start to finish perfect from the welcome with much appreciated welcome pack,wine beer cakes and much more to a farewell drink at the secret restaurant (Snackbar Churrasquera Jorge & Lia) a must visit just behind apartment.Everthing in the other reviews are correct tavirapad wants for nothing every conceivable extra is provided,it is in a perfect location very short walk to town and to train station so a car is not necessary.
Favourite restaurant this visit was xico through the square and just up the hill.
As good as tavirapad is without doubt the best part are the owners Merry & simon who are two of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet.
Would recommend and will return next time we visit tavira

If i’m honest I don’t want to post a review - we just want to keep this amazing apartment all to ourselves!! The quality of this apartment is 5* and Merry and Simon were the perfect hosts - we arrived to find wine, beer, fresh bread, oranges and more and all the little touches that make such a difference, and they continued to make sure everything was alright during our holiday. The terrace is perfect for morning sun, the roof terrace tops off the day’s sun and evenings spent back on the terrace with a glass (or two) of wine were just perfect. Beaches are within easy reach, either by the waterferry to Ilha de Tavira or within a few minutes drive to Pedras d’el Rei. On top of that, the centre of the town is less than 10 minutes away with numerous restaurants to try and places to sit and people watch!! Without doubt one of the best apartments and holidays we have had - Merry and Simon, thank you so much x

Dear Caroline & Ian, thank you so much for your kind words. We really enjoyed hosting you right from your enthusiastic and appreciative arrival to your happy but reluctant departure. You made us feel that it was all worthwhile and that you too have fallen for the magic of Tavira. We look forward to seeing you again..... soon!! Xx

“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!!!
