“8 People, 7th Heaven”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had one of our most fabulous Holidays at Casa Josef this year. From the moment Joe picked us up from the airport we were having grrrreat time. Joe and Carol were very attentive and kind without being overpowering; suggesting great ideas and understanding our needs.
The pool was really fantastic - we spent some time in the water (or lying next to it) every day for 2 weeks. The rooms were spacious and cool, the kitchen was spot on for our needs and the barbecue area really useful for alfresco evening meals. Throw in TV and Internet access, Table Tennis and Table Football then everyone is happy. And the main attraction, the seclusion and views from the villa - even though the Village and Hypermarket are a walk away or only 5 minutes by car. We'll be back.

“Excellent holiday!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Loved every minute of our holiday at Casa Josef. Picked up from the airport by Joe himself and then given a tour of the local village with recommendations for dinner and bars. Also suggestions of beaches and things to do nearby. Villa its self immaculate thanks to Joes wife Carol and has everything you need to have a relaxing holiday. Very spacious villa with lovely pool, terrace and bbq area which came in very handy during the stay. Villa its self very secluded and lovely for a peaceful holiday relaxing in the sun. Thank you Joe and Carol for a lovely time and making it so relaxing and stress free.

“Great holiday, great place, will return”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed for 2 weeks. picked up from the airport by Joe, he was great telling us about things to do during our stay, he was so helpful. Also said if we needed a taxi at all just to give him a call, if he was available in the van to take us somewhere he would. At the villa we had a nice surprise everything was very clean, and very well equipped with everything we needed. it was so peaceful, relaxing, and private. shopping and beaches great. we had a great time and will return

“You Have to Check this Place out!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

This Villa pretty much ticks all the boxes. The location could not be more perfect. In the country, walking distance to a town and 20 minutes drive to any number of fabulous beaches. We stayed here for 2 months and travelled to Aljazur and Sagres in the West and Seville and Gibraltar in the East. If you have been to Spain/Portugal before you probably know all about the dogs barking!! At Casa Josef the cicadas chirp for just an hour after sundown, the cockerels are far enough away to amuse but not annoy and there are no barking dogs close by. The location is perfect and you can be sure of enjoying a peaceful time here. Guia is just a mile away and there are numerous restaurants, bars, and other amenities. The Algarve shopping Centre is just 2 mins up the highway with excellent shopping from food to fashion.

The bedrooms look a bit white on the photographs but they are clean and the largest we have seen in a rental villa. Plenty of room to “move in” properly and be comfortable. The beds are comfortable and the master suite has a Queen size bed. (High on my list!)

Carol & Joe are wonderful people. They live 5 minutes away and will be there immediately if you have any problems/questions. You will enjoy your stay here.

“What a fantastic villa!!!”
Reviewed October 16, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

people found this review helpful

Stayed at the Casa Josef in Sept 2012 after communication with the owner Joe.
Firstly:- Joe is very quick in responding to emails even though he lives out Portugal.
Secondly :- WOW what a place!!
The Villa is very well laid out taking upto 10 people with comfort and has been decorated with some thought. The views are amazing and the pool was great.

I needed a holiday to get away from my normal 9-9 life and I found it here. You have 1 neighbour approx 100yds away but with hedges screening you are unlooked over. a real haven in a very busy world.

15-20 minute walk into the village of Guia which is a pleasant walk with virtually no cars on the road until you get into Guia.

The Owner "Joe & Carol"

You couldn't find 2 more accommodating people if you tried.
Joe met us at the villa on arriving. He showed us around and explained bits and bobs. We had bread, butter, ham, cheese, tea, coffee, beer and wine ready for us in the kitchen to get us started. I asked where I could buy a caffeteaire as I love my coffee in the morning. Joe said not to worry as he would get one from home. 30 mins later he returns with 2 for my choice.
We had a questions about the boiler as the water wasn't coming out as hot as we thought. 20 mins later he is round and fixing it with new batteries (Portuguese thing I think) and sorted.
Joe met us driving into the village one evening and offered to drive us around as a bit of a tour to show where the best restaurants where and the local shops. He also took us around his other villas. Casa Metcar which is surrounded by Cliff Richards Vineyard has amasing views and lots of grounds.
Joe and Carol clearly value their clients and with do almost anything to make sure everything goes right. In all the villas I have stayed in, these guys as owners are definitely the best at what they do. Joe even offered to taxi us into Albufeira one evening to go for a meal, you don't get that everyday!!!!
This villa had everything I needed for my holiday and is definitely one I will return too.
You get great location with great service and friendly helpful owners. Its what dreams are made of.

We had a 2 week holiday here, 4 adults & 4 children, the villa is very spacious and child friendly and the pool was a godsend, thoroughly enjoyed by all of us! Joe & Carol were very attentive, always on hand if you needed them. We would definitely return.

“Beautiful Villa, fantastic pool and wonderful hosts”
Reviewed August 1, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We booked this villa for our honeymoon and stayed for 9 nights with our 3 children aged 9, 6 and 2 - everything went very smoothly from the booking to the transfers.

We arrived at the villa to a heartwarming welcome of a congratuatory card and bottle of champagne, the kitchen was stocked with wine, beer, bread, cheese, mik etc - all we needed to get settled in. Joe arranged to drop in the next morning to take us up to the supermarket to get groceries etc. He went to great trouble to show us around the area and let us know about all the events and attractions in the area for the kids. Joe even dropped over cool bags for us to take on days out to Zoo Marine etc.
I can't say enough about the pride that Joe and Carol take in making sure that their guest enjoy their stay, they even invited us into their home one day for drinks and snacks after finding us wandering about town a bit hot and lost! While we were there the kids took a shine to Sammy the Seal (inflatabe pool toy) and Sammy was prompty delivered to our pool one day while we were out - it was a great suprise for the kids and they were delighted.
The villa itself was spotless and had every thing that you could possibly need and then some. The grounds were fantastic with a beautiful big pool, outdoor shower, 2 outdoor dining areas, barbeque, outdoor fridge, fusball & ping pong tables and atmospheric lighting for evening time.

Would definitely stay again and would certainly recommend to anyone. Loved it!
