CASA SURINA is near the beach walking -5 minuts, there are supermarkets, restaurants , bars ... near by, and to go to Old town (center Albufeira) or to the strip ( Oura) it takes 10 minutes walking... CASA SURINA is just in the middle!
Zoo Marine and Waterpark, within 30 mins drive.
We booked this property at the last minute due to our existing accommodation being unsuitable. Within an hour of booking I had received an email from the owner, providing their contact details and sorting arrangements for our arrival. Maria the housekeeper had the house ready for us within a few hours of the last guests leaving. The house was very clean and tidy and she made sure that we had everything we needed.
The house itself is in a lovely location set between the Albufeira strip and the old town, both of which are within 10 - 15 mins walk. Although the house is off the main road it has a private driveway with lockable gates and the road was not busy enough to really take much notice. The pool and garden area are secluded and very well kept and the outdoor patio area was excellent for enjoying some al fresco eating. The beach is 5 minutes walk away and there are a selec tion of bars and cafes en route.
The house is well stocked with accessories and the kitchen area was more than adequate for anyone wanting to do self catering.
We would definitely stay there again !

Overall we were very happy with our stay at Casa Surina.
The location was ideal for the Strip, Old Town and Beach with some restaurants and bars only a minute or two away.
The maid and gardener looked after things well, although the barbeque area was a bit messy (not that we used it).
The pool was fine but quite deep with a steep slope after the steps. It would be an idea to mark the depth on the side of the pool so that visitors were aware before entering.
We would have no problem returning to Casa Surina.

The villa and pool were superb and was everything it stated on the site.
The two disappointments were :
The barbecue was rusty and dirty so we werent able to use it.
We never knew when the maid was coming in and in the first week we didnt see her for four days!! As you can imagine with four adults and two babies in nappies we had a fair amount of rubbish and ended up having to dispose of this ourselves!! Not what we expected. Also we didnt know when the bedding or towels were going to be changed as there was nothing in the villa to tell us. It would have been helpful if a notice is put up saying when the maid is coming in and when the bedding/towels are changed.
Apart from these items we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Hi Pam, Thank you for your review. About your coments i have to say: The barbecue is cleaned everytime it´s used and has a big cleanning on the end of each booking, every year i leave at CASA SURINA new iron utensils, so it´s stange that you found them rusty. On your stay - from 6/6/2009 to 20/6/2009, there where 2 portuguese hollidays - 10/6 and 11/6, that is wy you didn´t see Maria for four days in that week- the 2 hollidays and the weekend - like all normal workers she has the right to rest at weekends and hollidays. Maria goes to CASA SURINA every week day, depending on the guests wishes she goes in the morning or in the afternoon, you choose! The bedding and towels are changed every week, as usual. I live in Lisbon, but all guests have my mobil phone number wich is conected 24 hours a day, if you had any questions or comments you could always call me. Hope to see you again. Regards Teresa

I had a fab holiday and renting the villa was the best thing we did. The hole family enjoyed using the villa even my 5 year old nephew, who enjoyed working his way through the videos that were available. The villa met all our expectations and more, we were very pleased and thought that it was a nice touch that there were some inflatables to use. The washing machine came in very handy particularly with a child. The description was very accurate and we have no complaints. I would definately recommend it to a friend and would love to rent the villa again myself. The neighbours and the locals were very friendly and helpful and made us feel at home. The owners of the villa have thought of everything to make their visitors holiday comfortable. It was nice to arrive to a friendly note and a fresh bunch of jasmine on the table. A wonderful experience and hope to repeat it. Thank you very much.

The property provided excellent accommodation for 4 Adults and 2 teenagers. The rooms were good sizes and light and airy - as always the beds could have been more comfortable and better and more pillows would have been nice. The living area was spacious and comfortable with a bed settee - which did get used by the other couple when the snoring got too much. The kitchen was really well equipped with plenty of crockery. cutlery, serving dishes and cooking utensils - the sharp knives were even sharp! Outside the pool was lovely - but be warned it's very deep and doesn't really have a shallow end - fine for us but watch out with very little ones or non swimmers. The garden is lovely and well established. The BBQ was OK but (as always) needed a good clean before use. The location was pretty good - a 10 min walk to the Strip and a taxi ride to the old town. Maria our maid was really friendly and helpful and came in most days. Would definitely book again in future and have been to this area many times.
First of all, thank you very much for making the first review for SURINA! We are glad that you enjoy your stay and have the intention to come back. About the pillows we took care of your desire and there are already more available. The cleaning of the BBQ is going to have an extra attention in the future, but because it is outside, its always more difficult to keep it perfectly cleaned. Concerning the pool, it’s true that is large and deep - 2.5 meters in the deepest part - and that it doesn’t have a shallow end. But the steps are large and mainly the first one, is very good for small children to play in... I have four! :-) Hope to hear from you again!

It was the first time I have booked a property through villa renters. Details for getting to the property were detailed & accurate. Jaqueline-the property owner was very helpful with suggestions for restaurants, sights, wineries etc.
A television would have been great & the overall cleanliness of the property was a bit lax.
I will definitely use your service again in the future, perhaps to stay elsewhere in Europe.

Lovely house, with oriental influences located in a quiet environment but at same time nearby old city center and new downtown supermarket and bus access at the door kitchen is fully equipped pool is terrific"
The accommodation was fantastic and suited us as a family of 5 perfectly. The villa was really lovely, well kept and very clean. The pool and garden area also were ideal for our holiday. The location of the Villa was in a lovely spot and all the amenities were within walking distance. Gorgeous views of the sea. We didnt have any late night noise which is ideal when you are away on holiday with your children. Everything was very home from home which was what we were looking for when we booked to stay at Surina and that is what we found when we arrived. All in all excellent accommodation.
Situation idyllique, jolie villa bien entretenue, service de ménage très sympa -de quoi passer de très belles vacances!
As a group of 7 friends on holiday, we had a fantastic time staying at the villa. It had just the right amount of cosiness and had everything we could want. Even the little touches like a large amount of glasses so we didnt have to keep washing up (although there was a dishwasher as well). The pool was much larger than we expected and much deeper. The garden was enclosed so noone from the road could see in. The housekeeper, Maria, was lovely and we managed to communicate even without a common language! She even sung me happy birthday when she arrived and saw me opening presents. Was a fantastic stay, very close to everything. The owner was very helpful and even recommended a restaurant- it was very good! We intend on going back next year!!!"
The Villa was very clean and well equiped with all you could need, it also had a good collection of DVDd which kept the children happy after they tired with the large pool and great outdoor area. It was well positioned only ten minutes in either direction to the Old Town or the Strip and a couple of minutes to the beach. The restaurant across the road was excellent and also does take away. The upstairs bedrooms have a sea view and there are plenty of seats inside and out. All in all it is a wonderful villa and we will certainly be visiting it again."
"Das Haus war sehr sauber,der Garten und der große Swimmingpool sehr gepflegt.Die Küche ist optimal ausgestattet. Casa Surina liegt an der Strasse, allerdings sind alle Schlafzimmer zum Garten ausgerichtet,so das man gut schlafen kann. Der Balkon an den Schlafzimmern im 1 Stock bitet einen wunderbaren Blick auf das Meer. Das Meer erreicht man in wenigen Minuten. "
Casa Surina was very nice. Location perfect. 5 min walk to the Strip, old Albufeira and the beach. The pool super. Sometimes a man came to clean the pool. Maria, the housemaid, a lovely woman. When we asked she come and clean the house. We were with 6 adults, each couple a bedroom. Kitchen everything there.We almost live 10 days outside, the weather was very good, the garden great, bbq oke in the garden. Breakfast every morning on the great table under the veranda. We ended the day with vinos under the veranda. The restaurant over the road very good and nice people. The owner helped us with the bbq. We had some problems but when we called Teresa, the owner in Lissabon, she helps us immidiately. Overall: we had a fantastic time in a nice house in Portuguese style/ambiance."
Casa Surina est très agréable avec comme atouts principaux sa terrasse et son coin barbecue, sa grande piscine et sa proximité de la plage. Spacieuse pour 2 couples, nous y avons passé une très bonne semaine, avec le beau temps au rendez-vous. Nous y retournerons lannée prochaine.
