Between the balcony and the spacious rooms and the comfy living area, this place is great. The pool gets lots of sun and it's a very quiet yet easily accessible location. I had a great time there with friends.

“Perfect apartment in Alvor”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I can't say enough good things about this place.

The keys for the apartment and information on just about everything on the apartment and locality were given to us well in advance of flying to Portugal.

From the first moment of entering the apartment, which couldn't have been easier to find from the directions given to us, we felt right at home. It was perfectly clean and had everything you could think of. We had 4 of us staying but it would sleep 6 people very comfortably and there's two toilets which was a god send! The bed was so comfortable, we're still longing for it since we came home.

In the apartment there is just about every kitchen utensil you could think of, there's a big TV with loads of channels and an Xbox which was great for the mornings with a hangover or for when waiting for others to get ready before going out. I'd recommend Forza Racing on the Xbox for epic multiplayer battles to keep everyone entertained! There is also a fast wifi connection.

The balcony overlooks the pool which was perfect for the days that we didn't feel like going to the beach. There's also a BBQ area which we made use of on one of the nights. It's got two big pits, one for meat and one for fish BBQing, a sink, tables and chairs and lighting if it gets dark.

The beaches and town centre of Alvor is a short walk away and there are plenty of fantastic restaurants and bars to choose from. Just by the front door of the apartment the is a map of Alvor with the best restaurants and bars recommended on it.

The only negative thing about the apartment and Alvor was having to leave it!

“Working break in Alvor”
Reviewed 6 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

I stayed in Alvor for a month back in May on a working holiday. Michael's apartment had everything I needed to really enjoy my stay. Booking was super easy and he really made things simple by sending me everything I needed before I left for Portugal. The apartment has fast broadband, English tv, new beds and lots of clean linen and towels. The whole apartment is really finished to a high standard with quality furniture and tasteful art. The kitchen is clean and has everything you need also.

There is a nice view of the pool and sea from the village and I walked into the village every night. The beach is short walk away also. I had a really relaxing holiday and I’ll definitely consider staying here again!

“Ideal location, facilities and setting for those wishing to unwind.”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A seamless experience from the moment of booking right up to departure for home. The property was spotless, well maintained and kitted out as if someone was leaving there. The owners clearly put a lot of thought into ensuring the tenants had all the basic necessities (and more) they required for the duration of their stay. A return is definitely on the cards!

“Excellent appartment with pool close to beach”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Our family of 5 persons stayed in this appartment the last week of July.
I recommend this appartment for all of the following reasons: it was clean, very well equipped, well furnished, beds with good mattres, walking distance to beachs as well to town-centre, swimming pool area including toilets and showers with a person looking after the area whole day. The kids really enjoyed the pool and the X-Box. The owner responds quickly to all our questions and provides lots of information off the area. We have been several times in the Algarve but this value for money is hard to beat.
Thank you Michael and till our next visitar to the Algarve.
