Condo - Abulfeira - Very nice stay
Condo - Abulfeira - Very nice stay
We just got back from a three weeks stay in Abulfeira. The location of the condo is just great. All you need is just around you. The apartment is clean and well maintained. The furniture are modest but functional. The kitchen is well equipped compared to other kitchens we had in other properties. you can buy your tours tickets right across the street. The bus shop and bus stops are less than 100m away. Under the apartment there is a fabulous café/bakery where you can buy your croissant and fresh bred everyday. The Ali grocery store is also very close. Sincerely, everything is around you, from shops to restaurants to bars, cafés, you name it. Tina, the local agent is super great. She takes her job at heart and she ensures that you have everything you need. We recommend this condo for sure. Also Margarida the owner is great and quite helpful. The airport transfer, Romano, was also punctual and very friendly and helpful. Norman Ottawa, Canada

A Great First Visit
A Great First Visit
We stayed at this property for one month (Feb 2013). The apartment was well appointed, clean, and an excellent size. The biggest plus for this apartment is its location. It is close to everything (day tours, old town square, restaurants, shopping, rental cars - simply anything you can think of). Tina, the contact person at the apartment was very helpful, and pleasant to deal with. She also arranged transport from the Faro Airport. Cost of 70 euros return. We were pleased with the apartment and would recommend it for any stay. We found Albufeira and its people very pleasant, although in Feb it was indeed chilly in the night. We particularly enjoyed the closeness of the apartment to the ocean ; a short walk. Although we were out of season for the large crowds and many tourists, day tours which are arranged across the street from the apartment with pick up steps from the same location, were plentiful and a very reasonable cost. I highly recommend the trip to Seville.

Wonderful location and very functional apartment
Wonderful location and very functional apartment
Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids - ages 3 and 5) stayed at this apartment for 6 nights the beginning of June. The photos and the description are completely accurate for what you'll get with this great little apartment. The location is fantastic - right in the middle of old town (but still a quiet apartment building), close to the beach, and easily accessible parking. We had a rented car for the week so we could do a couple day trips out of the area, which helped make the trip more interesting for the kids (since they can burn out on the beach 6 days in a row!). The apartment was clean and roomy for 4 of us - we were very comfortable there. The kitchen/bathroom was adequately stocked, though I was surprised to see no dishwashing soap or toilet paper as part of the amenities. We had breakfast and a couple dinners in the apartment; we ate the rest of the meals in restaurants. The burners on the stove weren't adjustable, but we made do. The oven worked great, as did the microwave, coffee maker, fridge, and washing machine. The layout of the building was interesting, providing a lot of options. The apartment is located on the 6th floor. You can exit out the back of the building on the 4th floor (for most direct access to Tunel Beach 1/4 mile away). The parking garage is on the 2nd floor. Finally, you can exit out the front of the building on the ground floor (the closest location to shops and restaurants). The elevator provides easy step free access to all of it. An agent met us when we first got there to provide us keys and a quick overview of the place. She was very kind and quick to replace a burned out lightbulb in the bathroom. It is a bit tricky to find the first time - Google maps led us astray. And the parking garage is a tight circle of spirals to drive through. We were very happy here and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing vacation in Albufeira, Portugal!

Had a wonderful vacation last two weeks of May. The apartment was perfect for our family. Spotless and roomy. The location couldn't be better. Walk to everything including a short walk to the beach and ton's of restaurants. I would highly recommend this apartment as it has all the conveniences (including a washing machine) and it couldn't be in a better spot. I would highly recommend a vacation in beautiful Portugal, and I would rent this apartment again without any hesitation. We rented a car with a GPS which I would highly recommend as there are many beautiful, interesting towns within 40 min's to 1 hours drive. The 1 hour boat tour in Lagos to see the caves is just gorgeous.

Owner response: Thank you!
Dear Margarida......Like they say..........location location location.......what a perfect apartment in the perfect spot in Albufiera. The pictures don't really do it justice , we found it much larger than we thought and the bonus underground parking was great. Every amenity was considered and Tina was just great (even though we got lost and kept her waiting) Tina hoped you liked the wine. Albufiera is one of the best spots we have visited anywhere in the world. Like the apartment the town is clean and bright and the beach was perfect. Food............don't get me started...............lol. It was really the perfect place to spend my 60th birthday. Thanks again and we will not only recomend your place but we will be back.

The apartment was beautiful and the location was perfect. Every morning we would get fresh bread from the Supermarket only steps away. This apartment came with an unexpectedly bonus- Parking Garage!!! We parked our car and walked everywhere and the beach was only a 5 to 10 minute walk. Albufeira was a perfect match for my daughters, entertainment for my 19 year old and 9 year old. Every night, there was something going on that fit all ages. Thank you for sharing your property with us. I have recomended this property to family and friends.

We had the best time in Portugal, and this wonderful condo made it even better. The apartment is spacious, cozy and has all the comforts to have a relaxing time. The apartment is in the center of town, so you can easily walk to shopping, dining and beaches. It it looks out to a quiet street and has a beautiful view out of all rooms. Albufeira is great, but I would encourage you to explore the rest of Algarve, especially the eastern part, where the beaches are less crowded and the water is a fewer degrees warmer. Check out a little island beach in Cacela Velha, which is only an hour away from the condo and driving is very easy. I would definitely stay at this apartment again or recommend it to anyone who is going to Portugal. Thank you again, Margarida.

Dear Margarida, We had a wonderful time in Albufeira at your apartment, it had everything we needed for a nice relaxing vacation. The location was perfect for shopping and dining, and it was only a few minute walk to the beach. Our two year old couldn't get enough of the sand and water, and threw a fit when it was time to leave. Thanks again for lowering my blood pressure and wishing I could be on vacation forever.

D. Margarida,Acabamos de chegar de Portugal aonde passamos um tempomaravilhoso sobretudo no Algarve.Gostamos muito de Albufeira, especialmente o ambienteà noite. Esperamos voltar lá um dia. Está de parabéns! O seu apartamento é impecável. Muito limpo, asseado e com todas as conveniências.A D. Tina foi muito simpática.Quando chegamos verificamos que a torneira da cozinhaestava partida e tivemos medo de usá-la porque podiasoltar a água. Logo telefonamos à D.Tina eimediatamente ela enviou alguém para arranjá-la.Queremos agradecer-lhe esta oportunidade. Foi uma boaexperiência alugar pela Internet. A D. Margarida foimuito atenciosa. Obrigada!Se alguma vez vier a Toronto ou se quiser visitar oNorte de Portugal tentaremos orientá-la para que a suavisita também seja agradável.Já sabe que vou dar a saber aos meus amigos e famíliao facto que tem um belo apartamento. Muito obrigada por tudo!!!Guida
