Apartment overview - owner's description

*New for 2017* Sunny Sea view 1 bed apartment as close as you can get to the stunning, sandy Arrifes beach & Sao Rafael beach in Albufeira

This lovely sea-view 1 bed apartment is set amongst lush tropical gardens just a 5 minute stroll to the picture-perfect Arrifes beach! Due to strict building regulations along this unspoilt coastline, this apartment is about as close as you can legally be to Arrifes beach whilst still retaining the sea-view!

Now taking bookings for the first time for 2017, this apartment has been privately owned since new and has never before been rented. Improvements before renting will include new flat screen TV's with integral DVD/CD players in both the lounge and bedroom, new twin beds with good quality mattresses that can be integrated to form a Super King Size cw memory foam topper (so you dont' feel the join!), and a sofa bed in the lounge for single or double occupancy. There will be new curtains & bedding throughout for a more modern feel! A new children's cot-bed and highchair will also be available. WIFI will be installed.

A further walk of 5 minutes will take you to the beautiful Blue Flag Sao Rafael beach which is Tripadvisor's number 3 of 98 things to do in Albufeira! It's famous for its fine golden sand, clear waters and limestone rock formations.

A photographers paradise, there are also other stunning beaches closeby - Da Vigia, Praia Do Ninho de Andorinha (Swallows Nest Beach), Praia da Ponta Pequena (Small Point Beach), & Praia Da Ponta Grande to name a few of the small secluded beaches on your doorstep! Praia Da Coelha (Rabbit Beach) is accessed via. a short walk along a footpath from the car park which passes through Olive trees, ancient Carob trees and Bamboo groves, all simply stunning!

The Sao Rafael area is often referred to as the "Beverley Hills of Albufeira" due to it's extremely beautiful surroundings and select accommodation. There are many excellent restaurants within walking distance including "A Sardinho" which specialises in fresh fish dishes on the beach, the Restaurant Praia de Sao Rafael which is on Sao Rafael beach and serves food all day. The well reviewed Praia Grande Restaurant is on your doorstep. Also a short 7 minute drive away in Gale you will find the increasingly famous 2 Michelin starred Restaurant, Vila Joya!

If you prefer something more exotic there is a local Chinese restaurant also!
Or if you prefer a livelier scene just jump on the local bus or take a taxi and you're in Albufeira Marina in 5 minutes or Albufeira old town with its multitude of shops, bars & restaurants, in 15 minutes!
You can find Watersports, Dolphin spotting, boat & fishing trips, plenty of cycling and walking & lots of other activities to keep you entertained. Or alternatively you could just enjoy the scenery, the food, the plentiful sunshine, the lovely pools (both adults and children's) & just chill!

Review of Aquamarine Sao Rafael Seaview apartment michaelsaul64 Maidstone, United Kingdom Relaxing holiday Left on Jul 3, 2017 for a stay in Jun 2017 Perfect place for a relaxing holiday, the beach and restaurant which is a two minute walk away was superb. The apartment was comfy especially the bed, shower was brilliant and it had all the home comforts you need. It was also very clean. "Dear Michael & Debbie Thank you for your lovely review, it was very kind of you. I'm really glad you enjoyed your holiday & that the new beds were comfortable. I hope to welcome you back again soon Best regards Julie"

Graham R May 2017

Review of Aquamarine Sao Rafael Seaview apartment Graham R Northampton, United Kingdom Lovely apartment in peaceful location near the Atlantic Left on May 31, 2017 for a stay in May 2017 The one bedroom apartment is located near to a hotel & conference centre. It is a residential area and is not a lively resort. The apartment overlooks a beautifully maintained garden is only a short walk to two wonderful beaches. There are a number of similar apartments located in the area, and all occupiers have access to a swimming pool. There are 4 or 5 restaurants within walking distance, however to get full advantage of the location, a hire car would be useful. Albufeira marina is a mile away where you can get several types of boat trips in the Atlantic for cruising the coast, or dolphin watching. Further afield are Water parks. A mini-market is close, but the big supermarkets are not within walking distance. The apartment has one bedroom and a "settee convertible" in the sitting area. It is ideal for a couple, although 4 people could be accommodated. There is air conditioning in the kitchen/sitting area and in the bedroom which is very efficient. The bathroom is large with an over bath shower and twin basins, toilet & bidet. The kitchen is very well equipped with a full cooker, microwave & a dishwasher. Could easily prepare a full dinner (although we didn't). As the apartment is on the second floor, there is a good view of the ocean from the balcony. Mosquito mesh screens are provided on all windows and doors. We could definitely recommend this apartment for anyone visiting the Algarve, although to get the maximum benefit of its location, you would need a car. Your response: "Dear Graham Thank you for your kind words and very comprehensive review and for taking the time to write in so much detail. It's much appreciated. I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the apartment and hope to welcome you back again soon. Kind regards Julie"

Sheena L Apr 2017

Review of Aquamarine Sao Rafael Seaview apartment sheenalygate Albufeira, Portugal Perfect location and best sleep ever! Left on May 14, 2017 for a stay in May 2017 This apartment has a new owner who has spent money on a number of items such as the beds. We are quite fussy about the beds and really value having a good nights sleep ; we slept so well every night waking fresh to explore the beautiful surroundings the next day! She also provided a new mattress for the pull out bed which our 16 year old was using so he was equally as comfortable. The gardens are lovely and very well maintained, the view from the balcony is scenic. The location is perfect, nice and quiet, there is a 5 star hotel across the road if you want to eat there and join in with what's going on. The beach is on the doorstep and is beautiful. There are many small coves to explore and great cliff top walks with stunning scenery. We hired a car and visited some of the villages round about, driving there is pretty straightforward. Julie the owner was really helpful texting information we would need, we chatted on the phone before we booked which gave us reassurance before paying. All in all, we had a great time and will be back. Your response: "Dear Sheena Thank you for your really lovely review, that's very kind of you. You and your family have been great during the whole process and I hope to welcome you back again soon. Kind regards Julie"

Review of Aquamarine Sao Rafael Seaview apartment annied763 Greater Manchester, United Kingdom Great apartment in a Beautiful location Left on Apr 26, 2017 for a stay in Mar 2017 Stayed for 1 week at the end of March in this apartment with a friend. As it had only recently been purchased by the owner nearly everything was new! Beds were fantastic can link together or separate into singles and were so comfy!! There was a large bathroom with 2 sinks and a great open plan kitchen - I would recommend the apartment and facilities. Location is fantastic just a short walk from the beach, also the Sao Rafael complex had a pool that could be used and there was a great 5* hotel next to the apartment which we had dinner in twice - as food was excellent! We enjoyed the place and location so much that I am planning on going back next year with hubby and the kids :-) If you are thinking of booking, do it - you wont be disappointed!! Th Your response: "Dear Annie Thank you for such an amazing review and I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards Julie"
