About Nancy Dawe

We are Canadians resident in Malaysia, where we have lived for almost 15 years. We travel frequently, love to explore, and have always dreamed about owning a property in the Algarve. We find the Portuguese people are incredibly friendly, the area is steeped in history, the wine is amazing, and the food is delicious.

Nancy Dawe purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Nancy Dawe chose Algarve Region

After traveling the breadth of the Algarve region, we liked the feel of the Vilamoura area the best. There is foreign influence, but not too much as to dilute the character of the local people, English is widely spoken, and you can reach beautiful, quaint villages or ruins within just a 15-20 minute drive of Vila Sol. Or, you can chose to relax or walk on the beach, go shopping, or engage in water sports at the nearby marina. So much to like about it!

What makes this townhome unique

The Palmrya resort is immaculately maintained, family-friendly, and close to lots of amenities so quickly became our first choice when deciding where to invest. As recent golf enthusiasts, we love the fact that there is so much choice in premier golf courses within 5 km.

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Casa Amelda. The town house was just perfect. Modern, clean, lovely furniture and décor, comfy beds, wonderfully soft towels and bed linen, a very well equipped kitchen, gorgeous rattan sun loungers on the roof terrace, we were left wanting for nothing.

The owner was a dream to deal with, provided us with very clear information about getting to, entering and exiting the property and we were absolutely delighted with a welcome 'gift' of beautiful fresh flowers, fresh bread rolls, tea, coffee, cheese, ham, biscuits, cake, fresh fruit, tomatoes, water, wine, beers (in the fridge) and other soft drinks for the children.

Palmyra itself was lovely. Stunning gardens and pools, and very peaceful. There weren't many other families who used the pool, so we often had the pool area to ourselves, just lovely! If you're looking for a peaceful haven to relax in, Casa Amelda ticks every box. And I would urge all guests to keep the house in the immaculate state it was found in!! It's too good not to.

Thank you so much Nancy for THE perfect holiday, we absolutely loved it and will definitely return xx

Fantastic, modern townhouse

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse is fully equipped with everything you will possibly need for a relaxing holiday. Nancy the owner was a pleasure to deal with and was extremely efficient which made the whole process of renting the property very easy. Nancy supplied detailed directions and all relevant information needed for entering the gated complex and the townhouse itself.

Underground parking was brilliant, especially as we had a couple of days when it rained, which meant we could enter the townhouse from the underground parking without the need for getting very wet! In the summer this must be a huge benefit for keeping the car nice and cool.

The house itself was spotlessly clean and all the furniture is modern and in excellent condition. The beds are extremely comfortable (unlike many rented properties) and all the bedrooms and bathrooms are very spacious. Plenty of towels are included and changed during the week.

Nancy also surprised us with food in the fridge (bread, milk, eggs, juice, cold meats and cheese) and a good supply of fruit and wine.

The complex is beautifully maintained, with daily pool cleaning and garden maintenance. The complex is quite large with four areas of houses and communal pools, but during our stay it was very quiet (October half term).

The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances and has all the equipment needed to prepare meals and there is also a BBQ outside on the patio. We found two very good restaurants at the entrance into the Vila Sol complex and these were Wildfire Smokehouse and Wine Bistro (next to the Deli Cafe). Wildfire Smokehouse is very popular and reservations are needed (even out of season), the food was excellent and we paid €130 for two adults and one 12 year old (pricy but a lovely treat). The staff at the Wine Bistro are extremely friendly and offer a very warm welcome. The steaks were equally as good as at the Wildfire, but were less expensive.

You will definitely need a car for getting around, local supermarkets are about 2 or 3 miles away and it takes about 10 minutes to drive from the property down to the marina in Vilamoura. We had a lovely holiday and would definitely return in the future.

We stayed at Casa Amelda in August. We couldn't have chosen better. From the start Nancy was an absolute dream to deal with. On arrival at the townhouse there was a welcome tray with fruit, tea and coffee and the fridge was stocked with eggs, milk, ham and water. They had thought of everything

We loved the townhouse, which was immaculate, and we very quickly felt at home. The beds were big and very comfortable. We particularly liked the walk-in wardrobe in the master suite. The kitchen was very well stocked for crockery and utensils. The television had lots of English speaking channels and a DVD player.

The pool area is small but it suited us as it didn't get busy, we could always find sun beds. The roof terrace was lovely too.

We would definitely recommend Casa Amelda, in fact we have booked again for next year. Perfect!
