“Fantastic apartment”

This is a lovely apartment right in the heart of central Albufeira. First floor with only stairs access so no good for those who cannot manage this. The bedrooms are a very good size with built in wardrobes and the beds are very comfortable. The fitted kitchen is very well kitted out (including a good washing machine), the bathroom has an over bath shower ( with a very decent sized bath if you prefer), and the living room has a comfortable sofa bed, flat screen TV (limited satellite channels but this is an ongoing thing with lots of places here due to a coverage dispute). Wi-fi access is also included in the rental charge. All bedding and towels are supplied. The balcony is fabulous and wraps around the front and side of the apartment. All windows are double glazed and also have security shutters. The beach is a short walk away (about 200 yards) as are shops, bars and the main taxi rank (50 yards). Bus stop is 25 yards away. Finally, what can l say about Ruban and Veronika who manage the apartment? They are an absolutely fantastic couple for whom nothing is too much trouble, and Veronika provides a little Welcome Pack with bus timetables, map, and contact details for her and Ruben. Had a great holiday.

“Great location good quality apartment”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

First thing to say is if you want to be where the action is, this is the place. Bars, restaurants and clubs are on your doorstep fantastic!. However, the owners have had the wisdom to fit good quality doors and windows so noise is subdued to a more than acceptable level and so,when you have had enough of the highlife you can just shut the doors and its gone

The fittings and decorations in the apartment are bright modern and appealing,with top quality appliances in the kitchen. There is everything you need if you wish to cook, but, both in the immediate vicinity and 100 meters to the Old town square there are lots of great eateries.

There is a fabulous uncrowded beech 100 meters away for sunworshippers or for those who want a leisurely stroll. The free Wi-Fi works very speedily so take your tablet or smart phone with you

Ruben the owner and his partner are extremely helpful and on hand for assistance if needed. This is a great place to stay and is excellent value.and comes highly recommended. So enjoy!

“excellent”
Reviewed September 24, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

we stayed at this apartment from 15th-22nd September and what a pleasure it was. We were met by Ruben (owners son) and his girlfriend who showed us around the apartment. They also informed us of places to go and see and were very helpful.
The apartment is right in the hub of the old town and there was always something going on (great for people watching). The balcony had sunshine all day, the apartment was well equipped and modern and only a 2 minute stroll to the beach.
Would like to thank Antonio for allowing us to stay in his lovely apartment and to Ruben and his girlfriend for being so welcoming and helpful

My Sister and I stayed in this apartment for just over 1 week. The apartment is absolutely fantastic and provides everything that a person would want while on vacation. The location is in a prime position for nightlife, beaches and the Old Town. I must mention Ruben Barulho, the owner and caretaker of the apartment, what a fantastic person to deal with. I unfortunately gave him the run around one day as i thought we had locked our key inside, it turned out it was in my pocket all the time. Ruben took it with great humor even though he went out of his way to get to us very quickly, needless to say i was mortified. Without doubt I would highly recommend this Apartment. Stay here for a fantastic holiday and again thank you Ruben.
