About Liz Webster

We never imagined we'd own a holiday property as we love to travel and explore new places. We had our first holiday in the Algarve with our little boy, then 2. We stayed in one of the 6 properties that make up Ocean View. We had a fantastic time. It got us thinking about how relaxed family holidays would be if we knew what to expect when we got there. The idea of going somewhere new and different made our little boy rather anxious. 2 years later we returned to Praia da Luz having decided to try and buy a property. We couldn't quite believe it when Ocean View 4 was available to buy just when we were visiting. Having compared this to lots of other properties, we just couldn't beat the location and view, so peaceful and relaxing.

Liz Webster purchased this villa in 2007

Why Liz Webster chose Luz

We just love the location. A view to enjoy and photograph time after time. Walking distance to the beach, restaurants and bars. Far enough away from everything to be peaceful.

What makes this villa unique

Ocean View is truly a view you'll want to photograph and enjoy day after day! You will also enjoy the spaciousness of the inside of the villa. Even when the villa is full with 6 adults you will still feel like there is plenty of space for you all. The upstairs balcony is a great place to hide away and read your book. The shared swimming pool is in a lovely location again with a fab view and it can be a bonus that the noise of the pool is set far enough away that it won't disturb. For people with very young children, not having a pool immediately outside your sliding doors can be a relief, no need to worry the little ones will venture out on their own. We visit twice a year at the beginning and end of the season to enjoy a holiday and to check the place over. We take pride in knowing it is well equipped and well presented.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"I'm very happy to confirm that we stayed at Ocean View 4 last February (2012), and the house was lovely, exactly as described except possibly even better than in the pictures - wonderfully light and spacious. It's in an ideal position, on a very quiet road with glorious, uninterrupted sea views and five minutes easy walk from the town centre. Jane, the property manager, and her husband, do a great job of keeping the house clean and well-maintained and were very helpful with local information. Our family had a thoroughly enjoyable stay, and have re-booked for another week this year."

Beautifully presented villa equipped with everything you need to have a fabulous time.

Right on the sea front with a south facing garden so sun all day. Comfortable interior with open plan layout downstairs.

Overall a fantastic holiday villa.

Ocean View, the clue really is in the title!

  • 5 of 5

Our 9th time at Ocean View 4 in Luz and each time it gets better. It is the perfect place to instantly relax. Trust me, the view takes some beating, fantastic.

The villa is far enough away from the town to be lovely and quiet but close enough to make all the amenities easily accessible.

It has all the things you will need and more, it really is lovely. The garden overlooking the ocean is a gem, there are plenty of things to do in Luz though you may not want to leave that garden!

An easy five stars out of five.

Location to die for

  • 4 of 5

The location is perfect, beautiful views & a short walk to bars & restaurants. Although it's a shared pool we usually had it to ourselves & it was a good social area to meet fellow residents. Very spacious comfortable accommodation & the kitchen was well equipped, however the sunloungers need replacing & the shutter door to the double bedroom had to be kicked open & jams when you try to close it which was a bit noisy for our neighbours. We can recommend the water sports. Did the sofa ride, jets skis & dolphin spotting trip, although we didn't see any dolphins, but Orcas instead! Amazing. The cliff walks are excellent & we even made it to Burgau for breakfast one morning. We'll be back, thanks.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the location and the pool...I agree, the shared pool tends to work really well and you do often get it to yourselves as everyone comes and goes at different times. Thank you for your helpful feedback on the sun loungers, they do get sun blasted all day and never last quite as long as we'd like them to! They have been replaced now.

A beautiful spot with a lovely view of the ocean from the front yard

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was well furnished, well equipped, and spotlessly clean with enough room to spread out,

It was a short walk to the village centre with all the amenities required.

This would be a great place to enjoy a longer stay

Jane was very good about responding promptly to any questions we had.
