Villa Santa, Beautiful spacious 6 bedroom Villa, Private pool

Overview

Villa Santa, is located on Estrada d Santa Eulalia. Beside the Oura area, it is a short walk to the Santa Eulalia beach, approximately 5 minutes walk, restaurans and bars are 5-10 minutes walk depending on what type of food and nightlife you are after. The strip where you will find the main area for bars, restaurants, cafes,and nightlife is located 5 minutes walk from the villa.

Villa Santa benefits from being located close to the 5 star Santa Eulalia Hotel where you can share the facilities of the bar and restaurant that looks onto the beach and sea. Eulalia Beach is only a short walk away and provides one of the best beaches in the Algarve, with golden sand, and clear water.

There are golf courses located with a couple of minutes drive, or 10-15 minutes will get you to Vilamoura where you will find the best golf courses in the Algarve in my opinion.

Beautiful Exterior
You will notice as you arrive at Villa Santa, the warm paint colours used to the outside of the property, creating a relaxing holiday environment. As you enter the gates you will find an area to park up to three cars. The Villa is surrounded by fencing to provide privacy and security for your stay.

The swimming pool area is south facing, you will find high quality sunloungers and dining area. The dining area is located underneath a large mature tree to provide shade. The sunloungers surround the swimming pool on the tiles and lawn area to the make the best use of the sun and Villa Santa's facilities.

There is an outside BBQ beside the kitchen where you can cook up a feast after going to one of the many fish markets, or just go to the large Supermarket located approximately 5 minutes walk from the Villa.

There are 2 large glass sliding doors that face onto the swimming pool from the living room and dining area. Perfect for those who may have had enough of the sun but still want to look out.

spacious Interior
As you enter the main door of Villa Santa you will find yourself in a modern fully integrated open plan Italian Kitchen finished in Oak, with Breakfast table. Good size room and easily accommodate cooking for upto 16 people.

Once you leave the kitchen you will arrive in the open plan living / dining room area where you will first notice the light airy feel from the double height ceilings, glass roof, and double sliding doors. All furniture is modern and excellent quality. There is a large dining area for up to 10 people.

Stayed Saturday 13 September 2014 with Family
We were a party of 10 who are veterens of villa holidays and I can only express my dispointment in villa santa, which can no means be discribed as a luxury villa in its present condition but may be if money was spent on it.When we arrived I did as reuested as rang tha manager Jimmy who as I understood would have a member of his team wating for us. We were actually let in to the villa by the minibus driver and did not see a representative until we were about to go out in the evening and this was after I rang Jimmy to report that we were greated with a big pool of water in the kitchen. To cut a long story short we were disapointed in the quality of the bedding ( particulary the pillows), the kitfchen utensals ( insufficient dishes for the over), the seal on the over was not functional as the over constantly set off the fire alarm, the quality of the furnishings- the cushions on the sofas were grotty and had no substance to them ( had seen better days) and there were only wine glasses for a party of 10!! The outside !!furniture first of all was insufficient for our group and had chairs which we could not use as they were broken. neither of the toasters worked and the kettle was faulty. Admitadly, we did get the toaster replaced and after a near miss with boiling water and a number of phone calls got a new kettle. I realise that we holiday at the end of the season when the villa would have been well used but you would expect an inspection prior to guests arriving would identify any problems. All of our issues were reported to the villa manager . On the plus side the location of this villa if fabulous for local facilities with plent of places to eat and a local supermarket and the pool was great. Please dont think that I am a moaner but having had 15 years experience of villa holidays we have high standards which on this occassion was not met.

The villa is lovely and we had a great holiday. During the first few days we came up against a few problems that I felt could have been resolved if more attention and care had been spent checking the villa. Shower heads were useless either not working or not staying up right. Whilst showering the water did not run away very quickly and you ended standing in a couple of inches of dirty water. The shower heads were replaced. Not enough hot water for a villa that sleep 16. The hot water ran out after two showers. After we were told this was normal something was touch on the boiler and we had hot water. Two chairs around the table were unsafe, one collapsing as my elderly mother sat on it. An overhead cupboard door in the kitchen came off as I opened it, luckily enough I managed to hold on to it. As the dishwasher emptied out its dirty water, it came up into the small sink and into the cupboard below. I emailed Patrick Kennedy with my concerns and had no reply to my email. I was very disappointed to say the least. I would be very surprised if this review ends up on any website. I feel this is a very accurate account.

Great villa, fantastic location. 12 of us stayed here on a golf break in mid-October 2012. Villa is finished and furnished to a high standard and is very spacious. Sits in its own grounds so is nice and private and secure. 5 minutes walk to the strip and some great restaurants and bars within 2mins walk - notably the Chinese restaurant just up the street. Jimmy the owner is a great guy - and the welcome package with water, tea, bread, loo rolls and a couple of bottles of wine was a really nice touch.

As a party of thirteen woman who holiday every year in hotels in the algarve, we decided to try a villa holiday for a change , Transfers were booked with the owner and as we all arrived at different times each driver was waiting in the terminal and knew exactly were the villa was and we all arrived within 40 minutes, Villa was spotlessly clean , Jimmy the manager even moved beds around for us with a smile, He pointed us to the lovely santa eaulia beach, Our days were spent lazing around the beautiful pool area and the restaurants were only a five to ten minute walk , The villa was large enough for us all and all the bedrooms had mirrors and plenty of sockets for hairdryers ect. We are now all villa converts and you could not do any better than this one it has it all . roll on june 2013

This property was absolutely fantastic and brilliant value for money, villa santa provided myself and eight friends with the space we needed to make sure we kept the peace for a week living together but also gave us a home away from home where we all felt very comfortable, it was excellently furnished with a modern feel and had everything we needed whilst staying there. The beach is roughly 10 minutes away, as is the strip which is nice to have a walk back from after having a nice meal at many of the available restaurants. Shops and cafes are just round the corner which was ideal and perfect for the use of the supermarket as we didnt have to walk far after carrying heavy items. The swimming pool was of good size for up to 9 of us to use and throughout our stay we couldnt find fault with this lovely property that we would all recommend to similar sized groups of friends and families. We hope to be able to visit again sometime in the not too distant future, The Billericay School 6th form group.

This property met my familys needs very well. Its spacious, and very comfortable. Close to all the amentities (shops, resturants, bank, tourist info etc.) The property details are accurate except for the pool, its not heated. The property was clean on our arrival, we were met and welcomed by the friendly property manager who gave us a few basics, showed us whats what and did say if we needed anything to call him. During our stay we thought the propety lacked cleaning products and equipment eg. cleaning cloths, mop, dust pan and brush ect. There is only one broom, a hoover that needs cleaning and a broken mop, which we could not use. In order to keep the bathroom, kitchen and floors clean and tidy as we use it. Needs one extra broom, one for indoor, one of outside, and a couple of mats by the doors. and kitchen. The kitchen is adaquately equiped though the kettle did not work, we managed without it. The shower heads in some of the bathrooms work okay but need matainence, and a few of the lights did not have working light bulbs. These things are minor, easily remedy, and didnot taint our stay in anyway. To be totally fair we should of told the property manager as he did say call if we need to, but we were too busy enjoying our holiday! I definitely recommend to other family members and friends.

Myself and 10 of my friends just arrived back this afternoon from Villa Santa in Alubufeira and we were so well looked after. The villa itself looks even better in real life and everything ran smoothly from having a preorganised bus at the airport to collect us and bring us back to the airport this morning to collecting the key from the property manager who couldnt have done enough for us. The Villa was spotless as was the swimming pool and I fully intend to return here with my wife to be.Location was excellent and I ( or any othe 10 friends) couldnt fault it one bit. Thank you all for a wonderful stay.

For my 60th birthday I decided to book a villa in Portugal with my family a group of 10 people ,as this was my first time booking a Villa I read the comments & the reviews and decided to book the Villa Santa .I contacted Patrick Kennedy who looked after all the administration from the dates, cost and the airport transfers he handled everything very professionally . When we arrived at the Villa we were meet by the maintenance manger Jimmy who couldnt do enough for us. When we entered the Villa we couldnt believe the size and the Quality of the living conditions it exceeded all our expectations. The girls didnt complain with the 4 unsuite bathrooms. We had so much fun outside with the swimming pool and snooker table.The location is perfect ,turn right when you leave the villa there is a small strip of restaurants and a supermarket also there is the Coyote Bar 1euo 50 a pint did we have some craic in there.. Then if you turn to your right when leaving the Villa 5min down the road on the right hand side there is this beautiful little beach with snacks bars and restaurants we spent some time there. So just to round it off we had a fantastic time at the Villa Santa ,would we go back again Yes.. Yes.. Yes.. I highly recommend this holiday for anyone with a large group of people .. Note* The family want to go back next year for my 61st......

We stayed at Villa Santa at the end of June and the holiday exceeded our expectations. We were a large group on a girls weekend, and the villlas facilities were perfect. Clean and well set up. We spent our days sunbathing by the private pool or going for the short walk down to the beach. In the evenings the good kitchen facilities allowed us to easily cook at home, or we walked 10 -15 mins to the strip for the nightlife. The supermarket is 5 mins up the road which is very convenient, but the villa is set back from the main road which is great as it maintains privacy. Security was not an issue with the villa safely set up with additional gates - but it didnt feel like a prison either. The villa itself was larger than we expected with a huge open plan living/sitting area, and large enough bedrooms. Ample bathrooms also meant no one ever had to wait which is very important with a large group of girls! Jimmy, the villa manager, was fantastic and helped us out with everything we needed. He was easily contactable and made our stay easier. They were also able to assist with transfers to and from the airport which was very convenient. Splitting the cost between us made the stay very reasonable and great valur for money - weve already been planning our next trip back and would trust that staying there again would be another fantastic holiday.

Amazing villa. Very clean, spacious and lovely pool. The location was amazing, very close to the strip and to many good and cheap restaurants and bars. The landlord was very chilled out and everything was organised perfectly. 5 star rating and will definitely book through this site again. Had an amazing time and thank u jimmy for making the whole holiday very fun and being a very good landlord.

Property was absolutely ideal - great location, good condition, clean, spacious ( a lot more spacious than it appears on the photos) - couldnt have asked for more, and great value for money if you are in a big group. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, and would not hesitate in booking again if I was going back to the algarve. Thanks!

Excellent for large groups who want the privacy of their own villa but want to be a short walk from the action on the strip. We took a party of golfers along with a few non-golfers, it proved an excellent base for everyone. Would definitely recommend this property.

We stayed in the middle of may with 4 other families and we were absolutely delighted with the villa, it is so spacious we didnt feel as tho we got on top of each other, evrything is fairly new and decorated well, all bedrooms are a lovely size and the pool is perfect. Villa is in a great location and not far from everything. All in all we had a fab time and were gutted to come home, have reccommend to others already and will def be looking at returning !!!!

We have recently stayed at Villa Santa for my friends hen party. The booking and was smooth and I found Patrick extremely helpful with transfers etc. The villa is lovely and decorated to a high standard. The manager in Portugal couldnt be any more helpful and overall would highly recommend a stay!!
Verified
The villa is well situated, only ten minutes walk from the beaches and strip of bars and therefore ideal for a group of friends wanting a short break. It is spacious with plenty of bathrooms, large kitchen, lounge and excellent pool / sunlounge area. The villa has a well equipped kitchen with all mod cons and generally the villa is well furnished to a contemporary standard, however some of the good looking furniture was liable to fall off in your hand, suggesting rather quickly cobbled together, which was s shame. The pool is fabulous and can accomodate approx twelve in the sunny garden area easily, through beware from some noise from the road. All in all, excellent value for money with a large group, in a great location and highly reccommended, the landlord in Albufeira is very accomodating nd the whole boooking / taking the keys to checking out process was excellent. Ensure you check lights work, beds have mattresses and doors lock prior to taking the keys, as we were one bed short (this was previously broken). N.b. Coyote bar (3 mins) serves 1 Euro a beer! Go into town for a more classy night (about 5 euro a taxi), as the strip caters more for the brits, and ensure you go to the beaches as they are brilliant. When arriving from the ariport ask for the Santa Eullalia Beach Club Hotel (next door to villa Santa) to ensure taxis know where theyre going.

Excellent property. The photos do not do the place justice. Very near to local amenities, beaches/restaurants/bars etc. Felt secure and had a safe. On a main road but we did not notice the noise at all. Our only difficulty was finding the place. It is near the 3* beach resort, not the 5* resort as advertised. They are quite a distance apart on foot. Overall an excellent, luxurious place for a holiday. Highly recommended.

Wonderful Holiday” Reviewed April 23, 2014 NEW Our family of 13, eight adults and 5 children spent a week at the villa. It is in a great location for beaches, supermarket, bars and restaurants and although just off a busy main road it is walled off and private. The spacious garden is a Sun trap with an inviting pool which we all enjoyed. The villa is spacious with modern amenities and comfortable beds. There are smoke detectors in all downstairs rooms. It is a perfect villa for those with children as downstairs is open plan, spacious with practical furniture. We were provided with high chairs and a cot and there is instant response at the end of a phone if you need it. We enjoyed cooking on the barbeque but also used Teasers bar just 2 minutes away for breakfast and snacks. Not only is it good food and service but very cheap too. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here - it went far too quick. This review is the subjective opinion of a TripAdvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
28 May 2013 “Fantastic place to stay.” I was in a party of 16 girls on a hen do and we all were very impressed with the villa and the facilities. When we arrived we realised that 2 fold up beds were missing but the owner brought then round almost straight away. Nothing was too much trouble. The villa itself was really spacious and the pool area was fantastic. The location was great with a supermarket a couple of minutes away and close to the strip. Im sure the other girls would recommend the villa like myself.
18 Mar 2013 “We had a fab break.” The villa was lovely. The service was great. We would definitely stay there again. The only problem was the weather we would look to go there in the summer season to take full advantage of the pool and outdoor area. The villa was very spacious I will definitely recommend to other family and friends.

I stayed in Villa Santa with a group of 15 girls in July 2010. The villa provided an excellent base. It is located in my favourite part of Albufeira Town, just a short walk to bars, restaurants and my favourite beach. The villa was clean on arrival, pool man was finishing off the pool and we were met by someone who showed us around. We were worried that it maybe too small for our group but we pleasently surprised by how large the villa was inside and out and we were able to move around for 2 weeks without getting in each others way. The villa was cleaned at the start of the second week, and the gardens were cut early one morning. Jimmy the manager came around on a few occassions and made sure that we were happy. I would definately recommend this villa, and this company that we booked through. Throughout the booking we were kept informed of key collection etc, they organised taxis and local information on the area. Many thanks and looking forward to staying in 2011
