8 out of 8 people recommend staying here

Couple from Dundrum , Ireland Sep 2016

We stayed in the villa for 8 nights in September and enjoyed our holiday there. The house is very large, modern and clean. The owner communicated with us a few times before our stay and when we arrived we dealt with a local property management company to get keys to the building. It was very easy booking. Also, the website provided has lots of information on the area such as restaurants, transport etc. There's several brochures in the house on the area and activities to do. We didnt hire a car but i would recommend that to stay in the house you might find it more comfortable with a car as although there's a bus stop around the corner, the buses are not very regular. The garden has a lovely seating area with bbq which we used many times. The Lidl supermarket is just across the road from the house. When we arrived there it was a nice surprise to see that there was some basic groceries milk, cereal, juice, tea coffee there for us. The gamesroom with pool table and table tennis are fantastic. The large pool was very clean and surprisingly deep. The deepest was over 8foot. We had it to ourselves a lot of the time as although there were people in the other 10 or so houses, not many people were using it at the same time. Also, there's a gypsy market in Quarteira on Wednesdays and it's just around the corner from the house. There's a large waterpark within 5minutes drive too. The only negatives are there's no wifi and the airconditioning is in the bedrooms only with none in the living room areas.

Thank you very much for your kind words.
With regard the air conditioning, the living area is double height and would be impossible to air condition efficiently due to the height. The house is designed to allow the side and back patio doors to be opened to allow a nice draft to circulate through the ground floor.
We are working on a cost effective wifi solution but we advise guests who need the internet to purchase a Portuguese sim at the airport and a WiFi dongle at the airport, this gives them a portable WiFi solution for the house, garden, beach etc. Many visitors actually prefer not to be online at the house, there is plenty to do at the house and the surroundings.

A house like that should have 2 cleaners, when we arrived there was still a lot of dirt and mess which obviously wasn't pleasant, apart from that the house and pool was lovely and so was the garden. I would recommend and try to book for next summer.

Reply from Sukhdev

Dear Jose Pais,
I am so sorry to hear that the house was not clean when you arrived - I will bring this up with the management company and ensure that it never happens again. I am glad you enjoyed the rest of your holiday and we look forward to welcoming you again next year.
Thank you again.

Family from Norton Canes, United Kingdom Jul 2016

Wow! What an amazing holiday!. The reason I have given a 3 star for advert accuracy is because the villa was SO much better than portrayed. The advert genuinely does not do it justice. We have had 9 wonderful days in the sun. The villa is stunning. We were so impressed with everything - the layout, the facilities, it was well equipped. The games room proved a real success with the whole family, especially when we needed respite from the sun! The air conditioned bedrooms proved to be a life saver too. We made friends with one of the residential neighbours and her grand daughter which was great for our youngest daughter as they spent a lot of time in the pool together. The convenience of Lidl across the road was brilliant and we often ate in or barbecued on the brick built bbq outside.
Portugal Property Management arranged our transfers and were on hand if we needed any assistance. All in all it was a perfect holiday and I highly recommend it to anyone wishing to visit the area.
I wish to thank Sukhdev and his family for their generosity in renting out his beautiful home. I'm sure if it was mine I'd want to keep it to myself!

Reply from Sukhdev

Thank you so much for your lovely comments.
It makes us happy that others are enjoying their stay at our house as much as we do.
Please tell you friends and we hope to welcome you back in the future.

From Pontefract, United Kingdom Sep 2011

Excellent well maintined property, spotless and well equipt. just a short drive to Vilamoura and Quitera and twenty five mins to Albufeiura. Supermarket just over road. Pool was shared but not really a problem.

From Stamford, USA Aug 2011

Beautiful home and an amazing experience staying here. We were 4 adults, 2 kids under 3 and everyone just loved the layout of the home, along with coming home after a day at the beach and going for a swim. We actually chose to rent on this trip because of our kids and not wanting to stay at our relatives house, living out of our suitcases. Dr. Khebbal was extremely helpful in providing information and detail on where to shop and eat. We went to some exciting beaches in the area, as well as drove to some...big recommendations Praia da Rocha and Praia da Marinha...we look forward to coming back to Portugal in the near future and hopefully renting this property again.

From Walton-on-thames, United Kingdom Jul 2009

Once we had excepted the cheaper alternative villas were already fully booked, this property appeared to tick all the boxes. Following a smooth journey (except for a final bumpy dirt track) we arrived punctually at the villa not to be disappointed. The villa is modern, spacious well equipped and beautifully maintained. With everything you need already there we spent alot of our time enjoying all it had to offer. The swimming pool is fantastic, quiet, spacious, clean and right at the end of the garden. Many happy hours were spent in the basement playing table-tennis and pool! Places to eat, days out and beaches are all available at a glance in the welcome pack provided. We really could not fault this place, highly recommend it, the smoothest holiday experience from the booking to our return. Thank you

We also went a drive to the hills and to Alte where we had our anniversary meal at a lovely riverside restaurant. We also went to the beaches which are so good- they do live up to their reputation! We ate at the local places and our best meal was at Bistro des Z'artes-which was very good indeed-we gave them your name as a reference!
