My boyfriend and I had an amazing time in Maarten's flat. We didn't get to meet Maarten himself, but his friend Nuno - who was fantastic! - greeted us and let us in. The place hadn't been open since February (we arrived at the end of April), so there were a few little things off, but overall the flat was beautiful and the view was absolutely breathtaking. The bed was comfortable, the shower hot, and we enjoyed the surround sound in the living room when we took a break from the sun. We loved being a little removed from the all the hustle and bustle of the center of Albufeira (which really is very touristy) and enjoyed the walk into town and the beach. I would definitely recommend this flat to anyone looking for comfortable accommodations, with a stellar view and minutes from delicious restaurants, fun bars and a gorgeous beach!!
That apartment was everything we could ever wished for - the view to the sea was breathtaking, rooms were very lovely, apartment had everything you could think of - from WiFi to hair straighteners. All of us 5 were extremely happy that we chose this place. Maarten was very quick and helpful with answering all our questions and Nuno, who greeted us in Albufeira, was also such a big help. Thank you so-so much!
The House is really nice and the location is perfect, 10 min till the beach and the city center. The views from the house are great and it has a big balcony where you can enjoy sunset while dinning.
Nous avons séjourné à 3 durant 10 jours dans l'appartement de Maarten à Albufeira en aout. Nous avons reçu un super accueil de notre hôte, sympathique, ouvert et attentif. La résidence est parfaitement situé car à la fois proche du centre et à l'écart des festivités nocturnes qui agite le coeur de la ville. l'appartement est grand et spacieux. Très propre et bien équipé, des lits confortables, un grands salon et un balcon avec vue sur la mer imprenable ou l'on peut diner en observant le paysage. La piscine de la résidence est assez grande pour que les habitants ne se marche pas sur les pieds, la proximité du restaurant de la résidence laisse le plaisir de se ravitailler. un super marché complets est à 10 minutes à pieds de la maison.
Breff si vous souhaitez découvrir Albufeira et sa région l'Algarve, l'appartement de Maarten est une destination incontournable.
We stayed at Maarten vacation home in Albuferia for a few day. Will say the town was a bit too touristy for us but we didn't do the proper research before heading down from Lisbon. Maarten had his friend Nuno open the house to us and he was a wealth of information. Guided us and was a nice guy.
The house had just been open for the season so it wasn't 100% clean but for us it wasn't an issue. A couple towels here and there. Easy cleanup. It's not the most modern homes though but it's to expect in the area. One thing that we enjoyed was the pool, proximity to the beach.
A few notes the place has a small fridge so if you'd like to cook (if you're on holiday probably not) then might have some issues. Also the location is maybe a 10 minute walk down hill to the beach. So you can spend your day in the sun. The staff in the apartment complex are awesome and they have a meal plan that is priced nicely. On premises there are tennis courts and 2 pools. We ended most nights sitting at the pool, drinking a libation and watching the World Cup with fellow travelers.
Final note the downtown of Albufeira is full of touristy places, so if you're looking for real Portugal (and 1/2 the prices) try visiting restaurants and attractions slight outside of the main old town.
