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.
Lovely place, perfectly located, ocean view and through the private gate within a minute on the beach, can people ask for more?
Although we were very late due to a flight-delay, we received a warm welcome, with a smile.
Super weekend, thanks Pedro and Sofia.
We can recommend "Spot3", just opened restaurant on the beach. Perfect fish! very nice people.
Wir haben wundervolle Tage in der schönen Villa Joaninha bei Sofia verbracht. Sofia hat uns die Gegend erklärt, mit einer Karte ausgestattet und uns super Tips zum Essengehen gegeben. Das Zimmer ist einfach aber sehr schön eingerichtet und die Unterkunft an sich sauber und gemütlich! Man fühlt sich hier wie zu Hause, ganz zu Schweigen von dem kleinen Balkon mit Meerblick! Man möchte am liebsten für immer dort sitzen, sein Frühstück genießen und das Meer betrachten.
Sehr zu empfehlen und ich hoffe wir kommen bald wieder!
Danke für Alles Sofia,
Julia & Can
We had a wonderful time in Praia da Rocha. Beautiful weather, nice walkings, very friendly people and good food. All the ingredients for a great holiday. Sofia is a perfect host, Villa Joaninha a good place to stay with a beautiful view. We will surely come back. Frank & Betty
Sofia et son mari sont des gens charmants et attentionnés qui ont tout fait pour rendre notre séjour agréable. Nous ne pouvions espérer un meilleur accueil !
De plus, la Villa Johanina est très bien située (face à la plage, avec un accès directe à la rue commerçante plus bas) et l'endroit est fidèle à ce que montrent les photos. Nous y avons passé un très bon moment, d'autant plus appréciable et tranquille que nous étions les seuls occupants :-) Muito obrigada!

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!
