The apartment is located 5 minute walk from Praia de Marinha beach which is beautiful. It is also only a short drive from Carvoeiro which is a lovely seaside town. Kate recommended us to go the annual Black and White festival which was happening on the evening that we arrived. It did not disappoint, great food, live music and a party on the beach. One of the best nights of our holiday. Thanks to Kate for the recommendation. The apartment is relatively easy to find. Kate provided great instructions for getting there and there is a black book which has all the info you need for your stay. (local amenities, rules, contact info, etc) On arrival after unlocking the front door, we were given a shock to find a bird flying around one of the bedrooms. We noticed one of the balcony doors had been left open. Luckily the bird flew out relatively quick but it had left its mark on one of the beds. Kate offered to send the maid out to get this changed however we were only a party of 3 so it wasn't an issue. On 2 of the mornings during our stay, the flat had no running water. I text Kate and she responded straight away to explain that the apartments are not connected to the mains so she organised a water truck delivery which was sent out within a couple of hours. Unfortunately on the second occasion however it was the morning we were leaving and we had an early morning flight. To make it worse, there was no electricity in the whole block. We ended up getting ready and packing in the dark using our phone as torches. A few other niggles would be, stains on a few of the towels, very creaky double bed and lack of basics like washing up liquid, hand soap and toilet roll. Overall though, we all enjoyed the stay, had a great holiday and would recommend the apartment.

The apartment was great. On the second floor with a balcony. Just down the street from the amazing beach. Tons of beaches and restaurants just 10 minute drive away. As well as grocery stores. It is about a 45 minute drive from Faro. There's plenty of towels and a cleaning lady that came while we were gone so we didn't interact. No traffic other than the apartment parking which is right in front. Super clean and all the information we needed was emailed at time of booking and in a binder in the apartment.

We had an excellent stay in this gorgeous apartment! Communication with Katharine was great and she provided all the important info about how to get there. The location is a bit remote from the town life, but yet within about a 20 min walk from lovely Benagil. The stunning beach and cliffs are on the doorstep! We would definitely come back. Thank you

The apartment is in a really good, quiet location, right next to one of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal - Praia da Marhina. There were hardly any neighbours to be seen, which meant that you could have the swimming pool and the bathing areas all to yourself. We loved having meals / drinks on the balcony with the view of the beautiful garden and the ocean.

Great apartment and fantastic location. Host provided with some directions to follow as it was pretty hard to navigate given satnav does pick it up on the maps. Apartment is situated on the Praia da Marinha which is amazing. It is tucked away from all the buzz of Albufeira, which we loved. The only slight downside was that when we arrived pretty late at night there were very little basics supplied such as hand soap and toilet paper almost run out. No washing up liquid, shower gel or anything like that was provided. Other than that we had plenty of towels, beach towels, all you need to cook and eat was there. The host was also very friendly and responsive. Overall really enjoyed our and would 100% come back! Thank you.

Wondreful location, minutes walk to Marinha beach and easy access to trails along the cliffs. As stated, you need a car to access shopping and restaurants. Describtion was accurate, apartment was spacious and comfortable, pool was very clean, parking was close and always available, staff and grounds keepers were very friendly. Family with teenagers loved the R & R and cultural experience this place and region provides.

The apartment is not up to regular standards: it was dirty and tatty. But the location is amazing.
