“Una casa estupenda en lo mejor del Algarve”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2014

Las fotos no describen la casa y el entorno: LA REALIDAD ES MEJOR. Tiene todas las comodidades que se pueden esperar, baños excelentes, buenos colchones, menaje de cocina, ropa de cama y toallas de muy buena calidad. Excelente servicio de limpieza y la amabilidad de Dº Inés de regalo. Las terrazas son para disfrutar después de un buen día de playa. Seguramente el año siguiente repitamos.

We had a lovely stay in Casa Gaivota, the weather was gorgeous and we loved chilling out on the balcony in the sun. The apartment was immaculate and had everything we needed. It's a short wander to the local beach but you really need a car to get to supermarkets and other places. Highlight was sitting on the patio in the evening watching the sunset with a glass of wine. Heaven.

“Beautiful Home and Location”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2013

Hi Susan, we have just returned from a lovely holiday in your beautiful home and country. We really had a lovely relaxing time. We loved staying in Villa Gaivota. We hope to back for longer next time. My daughter did miss the swimming pool though. We also did need a car...I didn't realise it was so far from the village. I will be in touch again. Thank you Susan. Best regards, Antoinette.

“The Perfect Condo”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2013

Hi Susan.We had the perfect condo and weather for our visit to Portugal. Thoroughly enjoyed it . The one suggestion I would make for your condo is that you consider changing the master bedroom to the ocean view. It is a larger room and the bathroom is much bigger.If we ever go back to the algarve we would definitely stay at your place and would highly recommend it to others.Thanks again. Paul and Kaye

“Beautiful Holiday!!!”

Reviewed 30 Apr 2013

The house was beautiful!!   I did all our own cooking except for two meals, so we got to know the fish markets and the Lidl quite  well. The fish market in Portimao was a giant supermarket just for fish. We had three really good beach days and the other day was windy and rainy so we did some shopping. I loved seeing all the spring flowers and birds at this time of year, it was really stunning. I am really glad we went on the off season...I can't imagine how anybody gets through the streets in august and when all the houses and apt.s at Vila Giavota are full -- it must be quite a crowd. It was lovely to have it so quiet. We took some nice walks on the cliff paths and my daughter took a lot of pictures. So here is my (hopefully) useful feedback for visitors to your place who are not familiar with the area.  It would be helpful to have a list of places like the Lidl and pharmacy and other shops that people might need to start their stay along with a map. We had a GPS but it wasn't useful for finding anything other than gas and restaurants. For people used to the area this wouldn't be necessary, but what seems obvious  and clear to locals isn't at all when you are seeing something for the first time. Another set of instructions might be useful for using the oven, microwave and washing machine... I never did figure out the microwave...but that was fine as we didn't really need it. Again, this might only be an issue for North americans like us. I think it is a fabulous place and the setting was so wonderful compared to many of the resorts and developments nearby. We loved the way we could follow the sun on the  balconies and porches and the views were amazing. I did go swimming one day and it was splendid.  The other days we did a lot of walking in the water and lying on the sand. I would happily come back and bring the rest of our family next time.

“The Place is Like a Postcard”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2013

I stayed there over the summer and I had a wonderful time enjoying the sun and beaches. You can walk 5 minutes to get to one of 2 Beaches Praia dos Caneiros or Praia de Pantadinho. The Praia dos Caneiros is very hedonistic with sun beds and lounge chairs and you can even request a massage. The Restaurant Rei das Praias which happens to be on stilts has the best Sopa de Marisco meaning Seafood Soup. Its not cheap to eat there but the food is delicious. The other beach is on the other side Praia do Pintadinho and there is also a restaurant there that serves a delicious Seafood Rice.. There is even a great Indian restaurant nearby although I cant remember the name The apartment is clean and spacious and the kitchen self catering so at times we would eat in as there are tons of supermarkets nearby at its a bit easier with younger kids. We had a wonderful time in the algarve as the weather is always perfect and people are really friendly and laid back. It gets a bit busy in the august but that makes it so much more enjoyable as there are so many parties in the town of Ferragudo. There are Some good restaurants in town located a 5 min drive from the house O Velho Novo with very generous portions . I also enjoyed going to algarve Shopping and I have heard there is a new mall that just opened up even closer now In Portimao called aqua Portimao which is a 15 min drive. All in all our trip was wonderful and I would definetely return...

“Picture Perfect Holiday Retreat”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2013

The house is in a great location within a few minutes walk to a beautiful beach. There are several fun things to do in the area and only a short drive to some larger towns with tourist attractions. The house is clean and people in the community are very friendly. I would recommend this rental property to anyone looking for an enjoyable and relaxing picture perfect retreat.
