Description from owner

Description

Spacious and stylishly furnished to a high standard, this south facing duplex apartment with stunning sea views is set in a tranquil and convenient position within an exclusive development in beautiful landscaped grounds with swimming pool, bar/ restaurant, two tennis courts and windmill. The complex is located on a hill and has spectacular views across Albufeira, the sea and surrounding hills. It is only 10 minutes walk from vibrant Albufeira Old Town and beaches and a similar distance from the new Albufeira Marina; ideally located for those who like to be within easy walking distance of excellent facilities, while still enjoying a relaxing holiday away from it all.

The apartment has 3 terraces: There is a South facing terrace between the ground floor and first floor to the front of the house with magnificent sea views and views over Albufeira. This is an amazing sun trap as it gets the sun all day. It has 2 sun recliners and side tables. The second terrace is on the top floor off the master bedroom and provides views over the landscaped gardens, pool and windmill and views over Albufeira beyond. Additionally, there is a good sized private patio on the ground floor off the lounge giving access to the beautiful gardens, shared pool with separate shower and toilet facilities and the poolside bar/restaurant. This has table and seating for 4 and has a built in barbeque. You will be spoilt for choice of terraces on which to sunbathe, enjoy al fresco dining, take in the stunning views all round or simply watch the sun go down while enjoying a glass of local wine.

The apartment offers everything you need for a self-catering base to explore the Algarve; a real home from home. It is on two floors, with no apartments above or below, and therefore has the feel of a townhouse. Living areas are open plan and spacious. The kitchen/ dining area was refurbished in April 2015 with new fitted units and new appliances and is fully equipped with electric oven, hob, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, kettle, toaster, iron and has a dining table seating four. The large lounge has patio doors leading out to the patio. It has two double leather sofabeds, a small put u up single bed and an armchair and coffee table, together with 40” Flat screen SMART TV, some UK Channels, Free WIFI, iphone speaker , DVD and CD player. In the recently refurbished separate bathroom, there is a separate shower cubicle, as well as a shower over the bath, and WC and wash basin (with large mirror over vanity unit), and there is also a downstairs cloakroom. There are ample built-in wardrobes (with safe inside) in the Master bedroom, together with a dressing table, chair and mirror, as well as the double bed and bedside tables. Lounge and bedroom are fully air conditioned/ heated.

The well-established, landscaped gardens are beautifully maintained, with plenty of mature palm trees, fruit trees and shrubs; the complex is awash with colour for most of the year. The Windmill has been lovingly restored and sits alongside the swimming pool and bar/restaurant where a little music in the background is the perfect accompaniment to a light meal or refreshing cool drink.

“Amazing apartment”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2019

This apartment is spacious over 3 floors with 3 terraces to choose from so spoilt for choice. 4 of us stayed as a family with a 14 and 18 year old and we never felt on top of each other. It is located facing the pool and has amazing sea views also. It had everything you would need in a home from home. The swimming pool and onsite facilities are one of the best we have stayed at in albufiera over the years. The wifi is excellent and lots of books and games to use. The airport transfer was excellent and the welcome pack was very much appreciated. Will definately be back

Response from the owner Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review - it is much appreciated. We are pleased that you enjoyed staying at our apartment and hope that you will stay with us again in the future.

“Family Holiday”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2019

Just returned from a wonderful week at Rob's apartment. Stayed here with 2 kids aged 13 & 9 who thoroughly enjoyed the pool. The apartment is very spacious and feels like a home from home . A short walk to the old town and Marina was no problem, more effort required on way back but worth it for the views. Overall fabulous holiday and would recommend if thinking of Albuferia as it is in a quieter location but close to the busier old town, beach and marina. Thanks.

Response from the owner Thankful for taking the time to complete a review - it is much appreciated. We are glad that you had a good holiday.

Response from the owner Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for your kind words. We replaced the mattress when we were out earlier in the year, as although the other one was not old we found it too hard - so glad you liked the new one too! Hopefully we can welcome you again in the future.

“A lovely Retreat”

Reviewed 26 Feb 2018

We stayed in Robs place from 8th-15th February 2018. all in all this apartment was great and perfect for a winters break. it had everything we required with two young children to keep them occupied. DVD player, games etc. all amenities we required, washing machine, dishwasher, cooker. i would advise anyone coming to albuferia during the winter months to be prepared, know whats on around the resort and what areas to go as in the winter months there is a few selected areas where people go and the rest is dead as a door nail. i would advise anyone to make the trip on "carnival week". we took the bus to loule for the carnival and what a day out it was! our pool was shut so if you have young kids make sure you know where the indoor pools are and if you can use them. the apartment is a ten minute walk from the old town in which you can get the small tram to the new town, the hill wasnt a problem for us as we prepaired the walk up in the evening as exercise, but it is quite hilly so be prepared for a bit of exercise or its taxis! we would hope to stay here again and cant wait for more carnivals next feb!

Response from the owner Thank you for taking the time to complete a review - we are pleased that the apartment had everything that you needed and that you intend to stay with us again. Gill and I have never been to the carnival, but it sounds fun - maybe one year!
