Nice Apartment, Ungracious Host
This apartment is nicely decorated, bright and close to the beach. However, if you are looking for quiet at night then don't book as the pubs are close by, (on the same street) and it can be very loud past midnight. I would have given this apartment higher ratings overall if it wasn't for the lack of hospitality from the hosts. We travelled from the north of Portugal to the south and stayed in 3 other VRBOs. Every single VRBO EXCEPT this one provided complimentary coffee, sugar for at least our first morning and toilet paper. This host left us a third a roll of toilet paper and no coffee/sugar. We did not expect coffee or toilet paper for our entire stay but just enough to get us started. The owner also asks for the guest to take out the garbage at the end of their stay which we didn't mind but they had left NO garbage bags in which to do so or even garbage bags in the kitchen or bathroom bins! When we contacted the owner and asked if maybe we weren't looking in the right places and therefore couldn't find the trash bags, a couple pods of coffee and toilet paper, she said, "Well we're not a hotel. We don't provide those things." VERY VERY ungracious and unwelcoming especially compared to the 3 other VRBOs we stayed in in Lisbon, Cascais and Porto. Every single one of the other locations left us a bottle of wine, bottled water, coffee, sugar, hand soap, soap to wash hands, and of course toilet paper and trash bags. All of this was standard at the other 3. Not to mention the Porto host gave us a welcome gift of chocolate and a Porto tile souvenir, and arranged our tours. The Lisbon host was super gracious and even helped us retrieve our luggage from the parking lot and at the end of our stay helped us take our luggage back to the parking lot. The Cascais host was simply phenomenal. As a welcome gift he presented us with a fantastic bottle of wine, a freshly baked angel food cake, bottle of sparkling water and cherries! Unbelievable.
So in conclusion DO NOT BOOK WITH THIS HOST IN BURGAU. SPEND YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY WITH HOSTS THAT APPRECIATE YOUR BUSINESS AND CARE ABOUT YOUR VISIT IN THEIR LOCATION.
Fresh centrally located apartment in small but perfectly formed Burgau
Attending a wedding in Burgau this lovely ground floor apartment was ideal for our needs. Although located on one of the streets leading down to the beach, we were not disturbed by passing traffic (hardly any at night and not much during the day). We found the location to be fairly quiet and sleeping in the bedroom at the rear of the apartment we always had a good nights sleep. The apartment has a fresh appearance with nice finishing touches and is fully equipped with all amenities to make a stay very comfortable. The only thing lacking was a kettle so we had to use the microwave to heat up water for hot drinks. Following feedback to the owner a kettle will now be provided. At the rear of the apartment there is a small terrace equipped with table and chairs and a barbecue making it ideal for outside eating.
Burgau has plenty of restaurants and bars providing ample choice for eating and drinking out. Directly opposite the apartment is a small Indian restaurant which we used on one occasion and we were not disappointed. There are good walking opportunities along the coast (mainly cliff paths) in both directions to nearby villages.
We experienced one slight problem early during our stay when we could not unlock the apartment door but the owner responded to this quickly and the lock was replaced within a couple of hours.
Certainly, if visiting Burgau again we would chose to stay in this apartment.
Lovely weeks stay
Excellent apartment, in a wonderful location.
Very comfortable, well equipped and nicely decorated.
Burgau is a lovely town, excellent restaurants and bars with very friendly locals.
Good location and well proportioned for price
A super compact apartment in the centre of Burgau. Close to beach and all amenities. Clean fully fitted kitchen with everything you will need. Large charcoal built in chimney bbq within small, handy outdoor space. Good value for money. One disappointment and cryticism is that we booked for 11 nights but did not receive a towel or linen change during the duration of our stay; we have always had this service with other rentals - I would make this requirement & necessity clear at time of booking especially when paying a ‘nightly’ rate. Apart from this I would strongly recommend this well laid out apartment.
Lovely apartment good location
Lovely place fab location but would have been really nice to have had a welcome pack, even if it was just tea coffee & milk ☹️
Super location and apartment
Staying in this lovely apartment that was perfectly situated made our beach holiday very easy and very enjoyable. Burgau is a friendly , small community with everything you need nearby and a lovely beach to while away the hours. In winter obviously there are few business’ up and running but that’s why we chose an apartment with a kitchen. We had no trouble cooking here as everything was well
equipped and working. Equally the apartment we chose was nicely done out and generally comfortable;the owner was on the other end of the phone for any quieries or questions we had which was reassuring and we were very happy with our stay. This apartment is easily big enough for a family of four with its two bedrooms and a sofa bed in the lounge. The WiFi worked with no issues. We stayed here in winter so there is an air con unit for a blast of heat in the main living space, but it can be chilly if you feel the cold so bring your slippers.We will definitely return here.
Burgau is the perfect place for your holiday, the beach is less than 100 meters from the apartment, and although not very big is a beautiful beach with calm and transparent waters. It has blue flag and is watched.
Burgau has a centuries-old fishing tradition and still there are ruins of old fort.
For the more active people there are hiking trails or bike rides and for those who have cars, there is the possibility of discovering deserted beaches along the coast. Salema Beach or Luz Beach can be reached in a few minutes by car.
Various restaurants, bars, cafés, minimarkets and ATM are also available.
