It's the perfect location, you can see the beach, check out the waves and are just one block back from Europe's top Marina with it's restaurants, shops and buzzing nightlife. You can also chill on 2 large sunny balconies, relax in peace. Sip champagne as the sun goes down and your only worry will be which restaurant to wander to that evening. Our favourite is O 'Retiro directly south of us on the beach or the yachties hang out at Aquavite on the Marina. The Thai Beach Bar on Falesia beach is great for gently dancing the night away, as is Puro Beach (Vilamoura) which is even closer. The beach directly south of the balcony has lifeguards, double beds for hire, palm tree sunshades with loungers, or you can just throw down a towel and take an umbrella, or go down to the house pool and have a refreshing bath. There is a convenient supermarket on the ground floor that does the basics, but a larger one, and the famous fish market of Quarteira, are a just short stroll east along the beach. Of course there is all the golf and sailing too. The wilder, endless dune backed beach of Falesia is to the west, for longer, less peopled walks. SeaStar apartment was re-designed and renovated in 2016, so everything is new, the beds are comfy and the linens are cotton. Great for 2 couples or a family with 3 kids.

New owner. Bernt bought this apartment in July 2018 from Melodie and Hugh who designed the apartment. They have lived all over the world, Melodie in advertising and Hugh in Engineering, and have had an old farmhouse in Portugal for the last 20 years. Bernt will keep the same policy as Melodi and Hugh. Fernanda, the housemanager will greet you on arrival and gives you all advice or help you may need as well as a few treats.
Bernt purchased this Apartment in 2018
Why Bernt chose Vilamoura
Sun, sea, wine. Wild open beaches and countryside. The food tastes great, just try a local orange....you will never eat a supermarket one again. The Portuguese actually like the English too.....
What makes this Apartment unique
Location. You are right in the centre of all the beaches, restaurants, sports and buzzing nightlife of a major up-market resort....yet the flat itself is end of corridor and private.

Absolutely fantastic! First class!
We have just returned to Canada following a 2 month holiday at Sea Star Apartment in beautiful Vilamoura, where we were warmly greeted by Melodie and Hugh. A lively and helpful discussion followed on places to eat, things to do and see in the town and around the Algarve, while we sat on the large balcony enjoying appetizers and wine. The beautifully furnished and recently renovated flat was very comfortable and welcoming with Melodie’s delightful decorative touches, all of which exceeded our expectations in every way. We had been left a large bowl of delicious local oranges, bread, cheese, milk, eggs, cake and wine which were so appreciated! The kitchen was well equipped, allowing us to make many of our meals, assisted at times by the propane barbeque. There was great storage in both bedrooms and bathroom which also had a new washing machine. The flat was well situated a block away from the Marina with its’ many restaurants, bars, little shops and just a short walk to the beach. Unfortunately the time of year didn’t allow us to use the beach or the pool! Plans are already in the making to hopefully return to Sea Star again next year. Thank you, Melodie and Hugh, for the opportunity to enjoy your lovely flat!
Thank you for your very kind words. So glad you guys had such a good time and share our love of all things Portuguese.....you are welcome back anytime!
The apartment was lovely and very well equiped
The reviews I read before booking are genuine. The flat has been completely refurbished, spotless.
The flat is central for everything in Vilamoura and Melodie and Hugh have thought of everything to make for a comfortable, enjoyable holiday even down to lightweight deck chairs and parasols to take to beach which is 5 minute walk.
I will not hesitate to book this apartment again when I return to Vilamoura.
Home from home apartment
We spent the last week of August in this property with our two oldest grandchildren - 15 and 10 yrs old. We had a great time and would recommend this property to anyone looking for a comfortable, clean and spacious apartment with all the facilities on hand to make the holiday go smoothly. Melodie and Hugh we're very helpful and friendly and were on hand for any queries before and during the holiday. The accommodation was one of the best we've stayed in as it was very comfortable and had a relaxing feel to it. It was just a few minutes walk to the marina and beaches where there were plenty of restaurants, take-aways and shops. The swimming pool area was great and we had no problems finding sunbeds at any time during the day, which is surprising considering it was a busy time of year. There was a very handy cafe adjoining the complex and a small supermarket too. I would certainly use this place again should I go back to Vilamoura.
Excellent apartment - beautiful location
We have just returned from a week staying in Melodie & Hugh's apartment in Vilamoura. A most beautiful 2 bedroom apartment in a really stunning location it has everything you would need. Situated only a short walk from the beach the apartment block also has a great swimming pool with adequate sun loungers. There is also a supermarket just around the corner and the famous marina is only a few hundred yards away where you can access any number of amazing restaurants and cafes. I would have no hesitation in recommending Melodie & Hugh's apartment for a holiday in Vilamoura and am so looking forward to returning there again. Perfect.
Lovely apartment in a perfect location of Vilamoura
We were met by Melodie and Hugh and shown round their lovely apartment which has been renovated inside the last few years so everything in it is pretty new. It's a great apartment in a great location , very close to the marina and one of the many beaches. The balconies of the apartment look out to the sea,an ideal place for breakfast or a drink in the evening. Melodie had left us wine, fruit , water , cheese etc which was very thoughtful.
The pool area wasn't too busy and we were always able to get a sun bed. The Apartment block itself looks tired and needs painted as does the area around the perimeter of the pool area.
We had a brilliant week and the apartment really is excellent
