Keep the inside and gardens tidy deposing of rubbish properly. If you go out for the evening be considerate of the other residents if you come back late or in the early hours.
This apartment is excellent. It is modern, spacious, well furnished and with excellent appliances so is ideal for self caterers. It is in a great spot within the complex, on the ground floor and close to the pool area which whilst I was staying was very quiet. The whole area is quiet.
Location is good, quite a short walk to the Marina and the centre of Vilamoura for shops and restaurants. It is also close to the golf courses and would make an ideal place to stay for a golfing holiday.
The owner was very helpful before and during my stay and answered a couple of queries I had very quickly, and also allowed me to check in early and check out late which helped me a lot.
Mark, thanks for such a great review. Anytime you wish to return please drop me an email and I will do my beat to slot you in. Thanks again for staying. Regards Mark
Spent two weeks in October at this apartment on the ground floor. Very clean and spacious and of high standard within a small complex .
Pool was great, a few footsteps away from apartment.
Easy walking distance to the Marina where you will find lots of restaurants to choose from, family golf also nearby which is worth a visit.
Taxis cost between 4 and 7 Euros depending on the time of day / night you use them.
Would return to this apartment again.
Communication with Mark the owner was great.
Has no one was in the apartment prior to our arrival we were able to enter the apartment a lot earlier than 14:00hrs which was a bonus has we had an early morning flight. Thank you so much Mark for this.
Very clean and close to the pool.
The apartment is very spacious and includes all the mod cons. It is a short walk to Vilamoura centre.
Very enjoyable stay and will definitely return to apartment j!
We’ve stayed at Praia Village on 2 previous occasions, but having this ground floor apartment made our holiday even more enjoyable. The apartment was very clean and spacious and had everything you could need . The owner was always prompt in communicating and kindly accommodated our early check in. A fantastic apartment in very well maintained grounds with a great swimming pool. We’ll definitely be back.
Thanks for such a great review, David. Drop me an email anytime as and when you want to return and I will do my utmost to facilitate that happening.
A wonderful second stay at Apt.J
Our family of 3 returned to Apt.J again this year as we enjoyed it so much last year. Mark arranged our private transfer from the airport which made it hassle free (especially with a toddler). We were able to get in to the apartment early as no one had been staying the day before. The apartment was spotlessly clean and the beds and travel cot were all made up ready. Our little one absolutely loved the pool area and being on the ground floor it was such easy access. We love that the complex never feels too crowded and is in a quiet area of vilamoura. Mark was very helpful with queries we had during our stay and I couldn’t fault his communication with us prior to the holiday either. A stress free and very relaxing holiday! Just what we needed. We will most definitely be back to stay. Thankyou so much to Mark and his wife for allowing us to stay in their apartment for a second time.
Charlie, Carl and Freddie
Thanks Charlie for such a fabulous review. It’s always a pleasure to have you. Drop me an email or text anytime you want to stay. I’ll look forward to hearing from you soon. Take care Mark
The Algarve, situated in the south of Portugal, is an ideal location for a wonderful holiday for all ages. It offers practically year round sunshine and boasts some of Europe's best golf courses. Vilamoura is the tourist resort par excellence. The biggest private holiday development in Portugal has golf courses, a wide range of other sports facilities and an incredible marina with a variety of entertainment. Falesia beach: This is the closest beach to our apartment. When not enjoying the wonderful Algarve sunshine or wandering along the shore, more active visitors can stimulate their adrenaline with sports such as windsurfing, water-skiing, jet-skiing or just relax pedalling a pedalo, fishing or enjoying drinks and snacks in the bar along the beachfront. The colourful shop windows are an invitation difficult to resist. From well known international trade marks to the regional and rustic shops, you can always finds the right gift for that special someone.
Other Activities: Zoomarine, Slide and Splash Aqua Park
Golf: The Algarve is renowned for some of the world's finest championship golf courses. Each of the five, 18 hole courses are superbly designed with the par 72 Victoria Golf Course which opened in September 2004, having been designed by Arnold Palmer. It had €18 million invested in it making it one of the best and exclusive complexes in the world. These attract dedicated players and champions worldwide — and are host to numerous prestigious tournaments, several televised. If you're a keen golfer, Vilamoura is the place to be. Four of these courses were the first to be officially recognised for their dedication to preserving the environment, having received an ISO 14001 certificate in 1998. An award of which Vilamoura is very proud — the first environmental certification given to a golf course operator in Europe. Each has its own driving range and a prestigious clubhouse and Vilamoura itself offers a dedicated golfing academy with full teaching facilities, a driving range and a 3-hole practice course to help all levels of players. Vilamoura is a true golfer's paradise, with all five championship courses in the close vicinity of the apartment. Quinta do Lago Golf Club and Vale do Lobo Golf Club are also very close by and are within driving distance. We can put you in touch with agencies to accommodate your golfing needs and discounts.
