Carvoeiro is a small picturesque fishing village in the Algarve. The house is close to the center in a quiet condominium, free parking in front of the house (available anytime). 50 meters to the main street, 350m & 600m to the nearest beaches. The house has a traditional architecture and was partially renovated in 2018. Has good sized areas, great natural temperature for summer/winter and a private balcony facing the garden where you can have your meals or just chill out in the hammock.

The space
My parents live very close and I bought this house to visit them often. So when I'm not short renting I'm escaping from Lisbon and I head for this little paradise for it's incredible beaches and relaxation. For this reason the house has everything a family could need for it's daily use. It's cosy, has good areas, the kitchen was fully renovated, the house has great natural temperature, and a lovely balcony, facing the garden with a BBQ and a hammock.

I have available a portable electric heating 2000w. The heater's not advertised in Airbnb - just to prevent misuse. You will have to ask me to become available. Unfortunately electricity in Portugal is one of the highest in Europe (really!). We will set a value that's included for your reservation and whatever is beyond that I charge the real cost of electricity spent over that to you.

The electricity house cost is normally 6 kWh (or less) per day, without the heater. I'll presume and offer, included in the reservation price 12 kWh per day with no extra cost for you. It should be enough for 3 hours of daily use of the heater. (2000W electric heater ON x 3 hours = 6 kWh)

The cost per kWh in Portugal is 0.227€ (Vat tax included). When you check in, we take the kWh number and when you check out, again. The electricity consumed beyond the average daily (10 kWh) should be payed by you through Airbnb's payment platform.

By our experience some guests found it useful and needed for the months of November - March. But at the same time other's didn't found that need. Everyone's different and besides the fireplace with wood available (without extra cost) there's also the heater available in these conditions. Our main worry is for the guest to feel comfortable, but because heater misuse there has to be some rules.

Where you’ll be

Carvoeiro, Faro, Portugal

The house is located in a condominium and the neighbourhood is super quiet, with gardens and a exquisite architecture. It has available free-parking (in case you're by car). Just around the corner, 3 minutes walking, you'll be in the main street of Carvoeiro (Rua do Farol) with all it's restaurants, cafés, bars, entertainment and the beach 5 minutes further. Surrounding the house, some by walking distance, other's just 5 minutes away by car, you have a dozen of paradisiac beaches to choose from. You may want to stay for a few more days... :)

About 12 years ago i started to host in my family house dozens of travellers and backpackers from all parts of the world who opened my horizons and showed me totally different ways of living. In the middle of this, like Robert Frost i reached two roads who diverged in a wood, and i took.. a year to travel in the Middle East and North of Africa hitchiking and homestaying with many locals, who somehow, changed me forever. Obviously that made me have the travel bug within me, and from time to time i need to leave Portugal and explore. I'm a economist working in wealth managment directly with clients as a freelancer. At the same time I work as a tour leader, with small groups of people or small companies/projects, organising and helping out their trips all around Portugal (and abroad - to Iran, Egypt, Turkey and Greece), in a tailor made way and sharing moments with local people and local knowledge to achieve unique experiences when travelling. Apart from this, im still that young teenager, 12 years ago, who just loves to host and meet foreigners, in that perspective, nothing had really changed.

During your stay

I have a auto check-in through a key box located at the door. I will provide you the password after you book the house. This makes all things easier. You can arrive anytime you feel like or in case you change plans, it's all up to you without the need of giving satisfactions or feel pressure because someone is waiting. The house is ready to use and I'm always available thought message, phone or even WhatsApp (feel free to add me!). In case of emergency, I have family close by or the cleaning lady that lives 200 meters from the house. Nothing to worry about.
