The room is in a traditional Portuguese house which has a very nice balcony facing the sea, it is very good located in a quite area and one block from praia da rocha (beach). This beach has a lot of space and has many restaurants to enjoy a good fish with sea view.
The bathroom and shower has a lot of natural light and were always clean, the kitchen is also big and has all you need to make a nice dinner, the living room has lots of books, a TV, sofas, dining table and the sunny balcony. This house is great to have it as a base to explore Algarve beaches. Close to the house (15 min drive) we found our favorite beach in Portugal called Praia dos caneiros. BTW, you can borrow beach umbrella in the house. :-) Sofia and her husband were always very nice and helpful, they gave us great recommendations. Sofia, Thank you very much for all, you are the best. :-) In summary, we enjoyed our stay very much and we can highly recommend this place in Portimão.
Sophia and her husband made us feel most welcome! She popped in a few times a day to make sure our needs and wants were met. If we had a question Sophie would hunt up the answer and let us know. The location was wonderful, the accommodations very clean, quiet and just what we wanted. I only have the utmost regard for our hostess, Sophia, and wish her well! Thank you, Sophia, for an amazing experience in the Algarve!
From the initial message from Sofia to confirm our booking, Sofia was friendly, helpful and warm. We let Sofia know the things we were interested in experiencing whilst there and both she and her husband were brilliant. They gave us directions, made bookings for us and generally advised us on how to get the most out of the area. We went on holiday to relax and found Sofia's easy manner and friendliness just the thing. Sofia even got up early on our last day to see us onto our shuttle bus and wave goodbye. We really think she is lovely and can't wait to get back and have another holiday there in the sunshine, with the beautiful beach and fresh fish.
It was nice and clean room and we felt very comfortable in it. Sofia was the best host. Helped us with everything we needed and made our stay as pleasant as possible. We would recommend this place to everyone who wants to stay in Portimao.
We hebben een heerlijke week gehad bij Sofia. Het appartement is op loopafstand van het strand, diverse winkels en restaurants. Ook de playa da rocha is op loopafstand te bewonderen. De kamers zijn schoon en de bedden zijn goed.
Het appartement is zeer aan te bevelen en in verhouding met de prijs.
Excelente localização, a dois minutos da praia, perto de restaurantes e lojas. As instalações são agradáveis e muito limpas. Local muito sossegado apesar de estar perto de tudo.
Sofia is the best airbnb host I've ever had, backed up by her brilliant husband. Her house is like the house in UP, a lovely quiet oasis amidst the towers of Portimao beach, with a wide and totally open view across the sea from the really peaceful balcony (much bigger than it looks in the pictures), it didn't feel like being in a city by the sea in the quiet nights or the birdsong mornings.
But much more valuable than the apartment (clean, comfortable, everything you need to cook, helpful travel documents) was how kind and helpful Sofia was - she organised and booked our bus tickets, helped us get the cheapest hire car and then her and her husband drove us and all our stuff (surfboards and all) to the bus stop. When I realised I'd stupidly left my wallet and keys behind in a shop, she went there immediately, got them, and passed them on to a friend to get back to me. A brilliant apartment, a SUPER host.

About the Host, Sofia
I love to welcome friends, to cook for them, to show them our beautiful region. I love nature, the beach, the sea. I love children. I love reading, walking, cooking.
I love the sunshine, laughter, warm summer nights.
If I had to leave the Algarve, I'd want to move somewhere where I can wear shorts and flipflops all year round.
At Villa Joaninha, guests are friends that we get to know while they stay with us. It is important for us that your stay is relaxed, informal and happy. Happiness really is key!
