Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Fantastic - from the youngest at 15, to the eldest at 81
Far better in reality that what's shown on the photos. From when we first enquired about this villa, Norah, answered all of our questions promptly, and the communications throughout was first class. As arranged, our transport picked us up from the airport and they have thought of everything in the Villa. Very very spacious villa, so that our party of 10 were'nt on top of each other. To be honest, we didn't use the facilities downstairs, but for younger children, this would have been ideal for them to play table tennis and pool (keeping out of the sun). Gloria (the cleaner) came everyday, except the weekend, and was very efficient. We used a taxi service (2 x 8 seater mini bus) to pick up up from the villa and take us to the Old Town on a few occasions. Their English was superb and would recommend them (they use the Crazy Frog logo). All in all, I would recommend this villa, it was perfect for us. Thank you, John & Norah
A fantastic stay in a fantastic villa
When I first saw Norah and John's villa on HomeAway, it looked too good to be true. It seemed to have everything needed for my family of 9, which included three young grandchildren, to have the holiday of a lifetime. I found it hard to believe that so much was included in th villa. What a bonus. Even a selection of buggies to save us lugging our own.
I found from my first contact with Norah and John, that life was a breeze. Such a personal service from people who know how to put you at ease with the booking process and give you the confidence to know you have made the right decision. All queries were answered usuall within a few hours by phone or Email. Nothing is too much trouble for this lovely couple.
Prior to travelling to Portugal, Norah even sent me a handy travel pack including maps and info, enen showing the villa location on a street guide of Albufeira. I was told that an agent would meet us at the airport to hand over the villa keys. How good was that.
True to her word Norah's lovely agent was at the airport to greet us and hand us our villa keys. We collected our hire cars and travelled the 35 minutes to the villa. We arrived to hot temperatures and blue skies. The children were in the pool within minutes. A quick look around this amazing property left us open mouthed. It lived up to and even surpassed the detail given. The website photos do not do it justice. It is huge and every room is immaculate thanks to Gloria the cleaner who visits five days in the week to clean and change towels. This property is more 6 star than 5 star.
The children loved both games areas with snooker, table football and table tennis. There is even a floodlit stage and bar. Lots of inflatable toys and floating armchairs were available which made the pool enjoyable. All 5 bedrooms were air conditioned. We found that a ten minute walk took us to the strip area. The villa is in a fab location.
I can only say BOOK THIS VILLA, you won't be disappointed.
Barry a very happy guest.
Thank you Barry for taking the time to write a glowing report on the Villa.
We are delighted that you and your family, especially the children had a
wonderful holiday. Best Wishes John & Norah.
Over and beyond expectations.
What a fabulous house, thank you Norah and John for sharing this gem with us. We were a family of 8 adults and 2 children. The house is situated in a residential area so nice and quiet but only a 10 min walk from the strip, the beach being a further 10 min walk.
Everything you required was supplied, from the kitchen store cupboard to basic soaps, suncream, floats and vests for the children to utilise in the pool even charcoal for the bbq. The whole experience was second to none.
Zoo marine is well worth a visit, especially for the children and of course a boat trip is a must, with a bbq cooked for you on the beach....fabulous.
If you are still contemplating renting this villa then contemplate no longer...book it, I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
Once more thank you Norah for great communication and the discount vouchers you sent.
fantastic property in quiet peacefull area
I have only positives to say about this very spacous villa set in a quiet peacefull well kept area. Three couples and 4 children and a baby all thoroughly enjoyed our stay lots of room for us all without every feeling crowded. Villa is massive inside and out plus we all had our privacy which is very important. Very homely feel to it which is unusual in a rental villa this is down to the beautifull way villa is decorated. Lay out inside and out is perfect. The lay outside allows for lots of shaded places to hide from sun and lots of places to indulge in it.
We found the booking process excellent and same with information provide by John and Nora. A big thank you to both and i only hope to return again in the future
Perfect villa for all ages
We booked villa for a 4 generation family holiday, ages from 19 months to 89 years. It was perfect. The villa was even better, if that's possible, than shown by the online photographs. John and Norah were most helpful before, during and after our stay. Our grandsons loved the games rooms. The villa had everything one could want or need on holiday. Our thanks to Gloria for looking after the villa during our stay. Casa Bouganvilla is ideal for walking to the strip where there are loads of restaurants. We can recommend Martinique at the top of the strip, the new Dubliner (for breakfasts and evening meals) also Sizzling Stone at the bottom of the strip. Thank you John and Norah we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your beautiful villa.
A perfect holiday!
What more could we say about this villa that has not been said in all the other reviews!
Very deceiving as you pull up outside and think is this it, but WOW! When you open the front gate and walk into the mass of flowers covering almost the entire villa….it is stunning. You then enter the entrance hall and come across the magnificent spiral staircase and it goes on and on from there.
John and Norah have thoughtfully and tastefully decorated and equipped this villa to suit all people of all ages. Unlike other villas, you are supplied with items such as sun tan lotion, dishwasher tablets, washing powder, toilet rolls, soap, tea, coffee, even down to ice cubes to name but a few.
The villa itself is kept immaculately clean five times a week by Gloria, the lovely cleaner, not a speck of dust anywhere.
The customer service you will receive is also second to none. Norah contacts you immediately on your enquiry and will talk you through the villa and your requirements. She will advise on places of interest and recommend good places to eat (You must go to The Cockerel Country Kitchen, the food is outstanding!) She will send maps with everything highlighted, which were really helpful.
We can honestly say this is the best accommodation we have ever had and the best holiday, we were so lucky to find this gem….last minute too!
Do not hesitate in booking this villa now, we certainly will be going back time and time again.
The James Family.
The Villa is in a quiet residential area. It is the perfect location for the family who want the best - but don't want to have to go far to find the rest! It is within walking distance of a wide choice of restaurants/bars/shops/supermarkets & hairdressers. A fun train operates from the Strip to the Old Town of Albuferia & Fisherman's Beach. The town also boasts a new Marina. Vilamoura is 15 mins by car where you will find 5+ golf courses, International Marina, deep sea fishing trips & sea cruises. Along the coast of the Algarve are several water parks. A visit to Zoomarine to see the dolphins, seals, sharks & exotic birds makes for a happy family outing. The Algarve Shopping Centre is 10 mins by car where you will find a good choice of shops, restaurants, a cinema and bowling. Our management team can arrange day trips to local markets, golf and excursions to places of interest.
Golf: What can we say? The Algarve is a Golfer's Paradise. Fifteen minutes by car from the Villa is Vilamoura with its 5+ Golf Courses. These Courses are highly recommended and pre-booking is advised to avoid disappointment. You will find brochures in the Villa detailing the many other golf Courses on the Algarve.
