“excellent host, brilliant location.”
Reviewed 20 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Joao is an excellent host , meet us at the airport even though we had rented a car , so that he could guide us to the apartment . Excellent apartment only 10 mins from airport and easy to find, the pool was for our soul use and was lovely with a outdoor hot water shower which was wonderful!
The apartment was simple furnished but everything you need is there including air dryer, coffee machine , juicer , iron etc. . the outdoor roof terrace is generous with plenty sunbeds and seating with views over farmland.
If you need any travel or restaurant advise Joao is an excellent source of advise as his recommendation lead us to some lovely locations which we would not have found otherwise.
we will visit again.

“Wonderful host”
Reviewed 21 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The location of this rental was central to exploring several areas of the Algarve area. The neighbourhood was quiet at night so it was easy to sleep. The deck area was wonderful for relaxing in the evenings or with morning coffee. Joao B was a thoughtful host, he picked us up at the train station and showed us around town, and drove us to the local grocery store for supplies. The pool was beautiful! It was the perfect place to relax after spending 10 days touring the cities of Lisbon and Porto.
The apartment is small but was all we needed as three adults travelling together. The bunk beds are better suited to children but we had no issues. Overall the apartment is compact but well laid out with all the basics needed to relax or cook a meal.

“Fantastic pool and terrace!”
Reviewed 21 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Well situated, compact holiday rental with a good sized terrace for sunbathing and BBQ. The wonderful salt-water pool is amazing, and it has an outdoor shower which we used more than the shower in the house; shower gin and tonics became regular part of the early evening routine! Free wifi and satellite TV are provided, and the house is well-stocked with beach gear and games too.
João the owner is an absolute gentleman. He met us at the car rental place so we could follow him back; provided us with a mobile internet device for the car, free of charge; gave us plenty of local advice and recommendations, nothing was too much trouble. The fridge was stocked with a welcome pack of local beers and wine, and some basic essentials. We only cooked indoors a couple of times, then barbequed any other time we didn't go out, which was lovely while having a drink on the terrace.
It was particularly hot during our stay and the house doesn't have air conditioning; plenty of fans were provided, but we still found it difficult to sleep until it cooled down in the early hours. Most locals don't have aircon, but João told us he is looking into having it installed.
We would certainly stay there again!

Thank you for your review.
In fact it was unusual hot during your stay which I believe can be a little bit unconfortable for those who can't stand heat.
Until this moment I never felt the need of air conditioning specialy because never had a complain so far about it.
Now, I might consider the possibility of installing one device to make it cooler.

“Very nice”
Reviewed 27 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a very nice stay. Picked us up on arrival and dropped is back when left for a small fee. The hosts are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. On arrival we were driven around to see the area. There is everything you need. There's toiletries, towels, a hair dryer and a few luxuries waiting in the apartment. Was very clean and could use the pool when ever we wanted. You have your own entrance and the dogs are friendly when they approach. The shops and immunities are about 20 min walk but there is everything you need for food shopping. And has the sun all day. We enjoyed our stay as it was just a relaxing holiday for us. Would recommend if you want the same. Thank you for having us and all the best.

“Compact home from home apartment ideally placed to access everything Faro and the surrounding countryside has to offer.”
Reviewed 3 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

2 kilometres from the airport, Faro Beach, Rio Formosa National Park and downtown Faro it's a great place to explore from.
Host Joao is the best. Nothing is too much trouble, he is kind and friendly and a great source of information. He even drove us around to help us get our bearings and find the best pastel de nata ( custard tarts)!
The place is great but Joao and Terese make the difference.
For any low key bird watchers who may be interested, we saw amongst other things:
Cattle Egret, Hoopoe, Azure winged Magpie, White Stork,Serin. Woodchat Shrike and Blackcap from the balcony. Birdwatching from a hammock,
Looking forward to our next visit!
