About Mr John Nevins
The house is family owned. We have been holidaying in Portugal for over twenty years along with our four children and friends. After renting for many years we took the plunge and the house was purchased in 2006 and we haven't looked back! Portugal and more specifically Praia da Luz, has offered us a welcome break from our busy working lives. The children have also enjoyed the area having 'grown up' from toddlers into adults who now holiday there several times a year.
Mr John Nevins purchased this House in 2006
Why Mr John Nevins chose Luz
This property offers fantastic ocean views in a quiet and yet convenient location on the edge of the village of Praia da Luz. It offers excellent and spacious accommodation for people who wish to get away from it all with a larger family group or friends. The house is large enough to give everyone their own space, while at the same time having spacious indoor and outdoor areas for people to be together. Luz itself is delightful all year round, offering something for everyone. There are quiet coastal walks nearby, fantastic beaches with a wide range of water sports, picturesque villages and towns either a walk or short drive away, various sporting opportunities and most of all beautiful year round sunshine!

Great property in a fantastic location!
We had a large group of 19 people and this villa was the perfect getaway in Luz. Only a short walk to the beach and surf, yet located in a nice quiet street, the villa offered a comfortable and luxurious stay for everyone. Great facilities include the amazing pool, BBQ area and terrace over looking the sea. Also perfect for waking up to amazing sunrises!
Had a fantastic time!!!
We had a fabulous time in a great villa - 2 families with 3 generations in each and wanted for nothing. We were warmly welcomed by John & Sue who were very helpful and rightly proud to show us around their lovely villa. We knew the area well anyway but it's a bonus having the Aparthotel next door. I'd highly recommend this villa for larger parties and I'm sure we'll be back.
We are pleased that you and your group enjoyed your stay at our house and also the facilities of the nearby Vila Luz! We hope to see you again one day soon. Don't forget to book early as it is filling up fast!

Luz 5/08/17 - Family get together
We were a party of 13 with an age range from 3 to 65 and the villa was a great choice for everyone...! Sue and John responded and resolved, very quickly, the issue we had to ensure our holiday was as relaxing as could be in this very well equipped villa. The location of the villa to Luz and the aparthotel (next door) was excellent, especially the aparthotel where we would take our evening aperitifs during the hotels happy hour (what a bonus this turned out to be as suggested by John). Would definitely consider going back for another enjoyable vacation...
Thank you for your comments. We are happy that you all had a good time in Luz and thought that the house was a good choice for your family. The location is ideal if you want a quick drink in the nearby hotel or a stroll down to the village.
We hope to see you again one day. You will be most welcome.
Amazing Sea Views from a Great Property
From the outset, John and Sue are great hosts, friendly, helpful and easy to deal with. Clearly they love this area and have put a lot of time into the house and terrace/pool - inside and outside are even larger than the photos suggest.
Rooms all great with plenty of space for large group (13 of us , can take 16), and 4 rooms open onto poolside terraces, with 2 to the rear courtyard (table tennis). Two safes in a couple of rooms.
It's certainly hot here in late July/August - sea breezes pick up from late afternoon. Blackout/sunblock blinds cool it down. Aircon throughout very effective and quiet. Large kitchen and plenty of worktops. Good wifi for a house full of teenage users!
Just ten min walk into the village centre - a couple of nearby supermarkets (Spar and Baptista) and a number of good bars and restaurants. Helpful hint for main summer season - you need to book restaurants as a large group several days in advance - they all get very full quickly. Mostly easier to get into from 8.45pm onwards, eat late like the Portuguese and have an afternoon siesta.
Another 3 minutes walk to the main large beach, good for swimming and plenty of watersports.
A very English visited and staffed resort - it was good to go to other places and hear more Portuguese and multi-national voices.
Thoroughly recommended. Enjoy...
Thank you for your review and for the detailed information you have given future guests about the house and the area. We note especially the mention of the cooler evenings in the Summer as guests should always have a warmer garment to wear if eating outdoors in the evening! (The first time we came my wife brought just one cardigan and had to wear it every evening for the fortnight!) Also good advice too about the booking in advance for restaurants, especially for larger groups. There are a large number of restaurants here but some are quite small!
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at the house and the local area. If you want to get away from it next time you may want to try our more remote property No: 6920942 which also caters for larger groups!
Hope to meet you here again in Portugal some day.
Fabulous villa ideally situated.
villa was lovely well equipped & ideal for a large party.
Everything was clean & very tidy, kitchen pretty well equipped.
John & his wife were very pleasant & sorted a couple of issues we had, both of which were minor.
We would definitely book the villa again.
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and maybe we will see you back in Luz one day!
Wonderful vacation in Luz, July 2017
We had a fantastic week in Casa Vista Oceana where we were celebrating my 70th birthday.
We were 7 adults and 6 Children who all enjoyed the lovely house. Plenty of rooms for all and both the children and the adults loved the pool with the remarkable view over the Atlantic Ocean.
There were plenty of space for us all at the dining table, both inside and outside. We had all our meals at the top terrace table where we could enjoy the marvellous view.
We can really recommend this lovely house for large famalies and friends!
Thank you John and Sue!
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We are happy that you enjoyed your family celebration in our villa. We hope to see you and your family back in Luz at any time.
Praia da Luz is a fishing village with a sandy beach approximately 10 minutes walk from the house. From the house itself you can go for long coastal walks on the cliff tops towards either Burgau or Lagos. There are many beautiful beaches within a short driving distance, including the surfing beaches of the Western Algarve. There are 3 golf courses nearby, including the famous Boavista Course just 2 kilometres away. There are many places of interest to visit such as the historic town on Lagos with its daily fish market and wide range of shops. The mountain village of Monchique and the spa of the Caladas do Monchique, Sagres and the Lighthouse at Cape St.Vincent are just a short drive away. The main tourist resorts of the Algarve, Praia da Rocha, Albufeira, Vilamoura, are also nearby and well worth a visit.
