The apartment itself was very nice, the pool was excellent and at your doorstep. São Rafael beach was so close by only a few minutes walk with activities like kayaking available. The leaflets and guide left by the host was very helpful in deciding what to do (I'd highly recommended paragliding). Also the range of books and DVDs left by the host was also great addition. The apartment is about 50 minute walk away to Albufeira oldtown and about 25 to the Marina. We regularly went to Albufeira and would advise to get an uber rather than a taxi as it's much cheaper approx €5 compared to €8-9 by taxi and the Uber's can pick you up wherever you are instead of having to go to a taxi rank. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay here and would go back.

Great apartment with all you need for a relaxing stay at the Algarve. Good beaches and pool in very close proximity, which we really liked. The lack of wifi for us was not necessarily disturbing as it gave us more time to relax and explore the surroundings. Both Miguel and Steven were very helpful and forthcoming. Agree with posts above, some additional kitchen supplies would be great to have. Overall, very recommendable!

Response from Steven:
Thank you for your kind review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and you were able to relax and enjoy The Algarve. As the supplies issue seems to be mentioned by a few previous guests we are going to arrange for a welcome pack to be available for the next season.

Steven ´s apartment was exactly what we were lookimg for. A really cozy apartment for 2 people to spend several days in Algarve. Close to the beach, walkable in 5 min, with parking spot in front of the apartment. We did not check ourselves the availability of the pool but I am pretty sure there would be no problem. Not only that the apartment is nicely located for calm vacation but also the pool area is oposite to the terrase so my worries about listening to kids at 8 in the morning jumping in the pool did not come true

Stephen gave us all information required. Yellow fish transfers are great. Both drivers were punctuate and very helpful. Anna at the pool complex was lovely and very helpful too. I can not praise Stephen and his apartment enough. Thank you.
