Jose was an excellent host. He was in touch as soon as we were in touch via text to let us know how to reach the apartment and gave recommendations for supermarkets and activities. He also arranged for us to rent two bikes which was very handy! We loved the location of the apartment and also found the staff in the restaurant Wax very handy - they are clearly used to Jose's guests and were very happy to allow us to bring food/drinks to our porch area of the apartment (as well as store our bags). We were even able to check out later than planned which was a huge help as it meant that we did not have to sit around the airport for too long. We would gladly recommend it/go back again!
Casa perfeito! Muitooo bom. Até melhor do que imaginamos. Adoramos este apartamento. Tem todos os equimentos em casa. Também tem uma varanda grande. Podem ver o mar ali e em casa. Limpa e bonita! E o dono é uma pessoa sabe viver bem:) E uma pessoa muitooo simpática. Passámos 4 dias ali e vivemos muito feliz aqui
Jose was very nice! Our reservation changed slightly from what was originally booked and he was flexible and accommodating. He gave us a great tour of the place on our arrival and made sure we had everything we needed.
The view of the ocean is GORGEOUS, as are the daily sunsets. The only downside is this is obstructed by a busy restaurant patio during the day. It may not be too obvious from the photos, but there is only a glass door that separates you from a patio of about 50 diners at the restaurant. This didn't bother us, but if you are a private person it could be something to make note of.
We visited Faro in mid March, so it was a fairly quiet town as it was off season. Not much to do in the area, but relax and take in the beautiful view. There is a grocery store a 5 minute drive away and the home has everything you need to cook all your meals. There is also an amazing gelato and coffee bar in the restaurant downstairs for dessert.
If wifi is important to you, there is only access to the public wifi from the restaurant downstairs. Its patchy and unreliable, so don't count on it if you need to work, or want to watch movies/play music, but you really should just be enjoying the beach at this beautiful home!
I cannot recommend this property and host enough. He went above and beyond to make us feel a home and we had a the most wonderful time on the beach. Gorgeous apartment (even nicer in person!) fab bar downstairs with great food and drink. Such a beautiful place to spend some time and you could just walk down the beach for miles and miles. The sun sets on the sea outside the back door. Just heaven!
Most of all Jose is such a nice guy and collected us from the airport, arranged bike rental and even had the kitchen stocked for us.
Thanks, Ranae and Audrey
ps. Extra special for us as we got engaged on our 2nd last day here!
Jose's house is fantastic it is on Faro beach that is giving you an amazing ocean view from the living room. The house is full equipped and has a huge area for cooking and eating, Just downstairs very cool café&bar&restaurant. Jose was a great host since we pleased to stay one day more and arrived one day late he was very tolerant. Just recommend to everyone!!
Great appartment in a beautiful surrounding on the beach! It gave you a feeling as if you were at home. The kitchen had all the equipment you need. Every night you could see the sunset from the balcony.
Very handy was the beach bar under the appartment, where you could get great burgers, pizza's, icecream and fresh fruitjuices. Because of the bar and also because of the busy road it can be a bit noisy, but the music in the bar is not loud at all andthe bar closes around midnight. So if you don't go to bed to early it is not a problem at all.
It was also great that we got to chairs on the beach to use.
From the appartment you are in half an hour ride in nice places, like Faro itself, Ilha do Farol, Tavira, Loule, etc.
I would certainly go back there.
José was nice and very helpful. The location on the beach was great and the apartment was nicely decorated and well equipped. Wax is a nice place to eat and drink and we had use of the reserved sun-loungers and parasols on the beach.
Just an awesome place to stay in Faro. The apartment and the view are amazing. Perfectly equipped with all you need, internet, TV, dish washer, washing machine, dishes, pans and pots. Great terrace and direct access to the beach. Fantastics shower. José was a great host. Very helpful and easy to communicate with. We had a great time and will come back again.
Jose was a wonderful host meeting us at the apartment and pointing out points of interest and things to do.
Jose was a great host! Picked me up from the bus station and have me a quick tour of the town and beach area. The apartment was beautiful and spacious. Backing into the beach with a bar at the rear. What else could you ask for. We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend it!!
