This is a top floor high spec apartment with all rooms exiting onto a front facing balcony with a 180 panoramic degree sea views. Apartment will sleep 4 - 6 comfortably in the two bedroom and with one extra sofabed in the living room and an extra bed in one of the bedrooms. It is fully air-conditioned and has a fully fitted kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer, extractor etc.
We take great pride in the apartment, which is our home during wintertime. Hopefully the reviews from previous guests help "sell" the apartment much better than we ever can, we are very proud of the reviews.
The apartment is located in a small private complex (22 apartments in total) on the third (top) floor with direct access via a lift, which also goes to the underground car parking area. There is a dedicated car parking space, which is particularly useful in the high season. All rooms are forward facing onto a curved 15 meters (50 ft) balcony, which faces the sea - the balcony is an ideal spot to watch the sunrise or simply to "chill out" during the day and watch the ever changing sea views and boats coming in and out of the marina. At light you can see the lights from Faro, Vilamoura and Loulé. The bedrooms rarely get too hot in the night, even during July / August.
The apartment benefits from all the usual "mod cons" you would expect such as air conditioning, good WIFI via broadband and TV and films which can be seen via MEO-TV with a numerous of channels. There is also a DVD-player and lots of films to watch if you get tired of the sea-life scenery.
Both bedrooms are equipped with very good quality beds and mattresses and en-suite facilities, shower/bath with the master bedroom and walk in shower in the second bathroom.
There is a very private swimming pool (within a walled garden) to the rear of the complex, which is therefore very secure. It's ideal for the children with a separate paddling pool. This area is a suntrap for sun worshippers and is protected from winds due the high walls.
As commented upon in the numerous "guest reviews" the apartment is located in a quiet residential neighbourhood on the West of the Old Town, with lovely views of the small fishing port, which leads to the marina (around the corner). It's therefore ideal if you just wish to have a quiet relaxing break or if you want a little more "excitement" it takes only approximately 10 minutes to walk to the Old Town Square / Fisherman's Beach and about the same time to walk to the Marina.
If you hire a car you can reach several stunning beaches such as Galé and Falesia but the majority of our guests rarely hire a car as they can enjoy the stunning beaches Albufeira has to offer, Fisherman's Beach and the main beach (in front of the tunnel). Taxis and bus transport within the town are reliable and reasonably priced, for example it costs approx. 5 euros to get a taxi back to the apartment from the Old Town Centre. If you fancy exploring the area, the main motorway runs across the Algarve from Spain and is usually pretty quiet, with reasonable toll prices. It's worth visiting local areas/towns in the Algarve, such as the Monchique Mountains, Silves, Loulé, Portimao, Lagos, Sagres and Faro. The retail park at Guia and Zoo-marina/Water Park are also worth a visit.
If you are food and drink lovers, there are numerous restaurants within easy walking distance in the Old Town or the Marina and we have a guest book in the apartment, with many recommendations from guests who have stayed in the apartment. If you like wine, the Portuguese reds and whites are worth a try - and are reasonably priced in the local restaurants, many of which are run by lovely families. For the gourmets there is a stunning two star Michelin restaurant just 10 min away, Vila Joya. Definitely worth a visit!
In order to secure a booking, please contact of us and we'll take you through the process and explain how everything works. It's quite straightforward. A deposit of 25% of the booking fee is required at the outset, with the balance (plus security bond of €250) then payable 6 weeks before your stay.
Our agent, Karon of Top Hat is always available to deal with any problems you may have whilst on holiday, she can also arrange airport transfers to and from Faro Airport if required. Karon will also be there when you arrive to carry out a "meet and greet" when the keys will be handed over and she'll explain how everything works in the apartment. The previous owners have used Karon and her team since they started renting out the apartment in 2011.
We hope the above gives you a flavour of Albufeira, the Algarve and most importantly the penthouse apartment, we look forward to hearing from you.

Hemos estado un matrimonio con dos hijos durante 10 días en este apartamento y nos ha parecido maravilloso. La ubicación es perfecta. Está en una zona muy tranquila de Albufeira y a sólo 10 minutos caminando de la playa y del centro . Hay un supermercado bastante completo a 2 minutos andando. El apartamento está nuevo. Es amplio y está muy limpio. Tiene aire acondicionado en cada dormitorio y en el salón , cosa importante en verano . Además , está bien equipado : lavadora , lavavajillas , TV , WIFI ... El balcón es un lujo . Tiene unas vistas al mar impresionantes . Por la tarde da la sombra y con la brisa que corre se está muy a gusto. Mis hijos disfrutaron mucho de la piscina. No es muy grande , pero hace su función. El dueño del apartamento ha sido muy amable y ha estado disponible en todo momento. Por todo esto , recomendaría a todo el mundo este apartamento. Si tuviera que volver a Albufeira , repetiría sin dudarlo. Ha sido un acierto.

Location of the apartment was excellent, easy walk to the beach, marina and the old strip. Great views from the balcony. Apartment was spotless and had all amenities. Great to have wifi also. Would highly recommend this apartment to anyone
By GRAHAM PURCELL on 16-Jul-2017
Just back from two wonderful weeks at this excellant apartment (family of 4 adults) It has everything you could need for a self-catering holiday including great wi-fi, air con, (a real godsend as it was boiling hot) stunning views, and an easy stroll to either the old town, the beautiful beach or the marina. This apartment exceeded our expectations and we will definitely return in the future.
Immaculate accomodation with superb view!
By Colin Elliot on 02-Jul-2017
The apartment is in immaculate condition with all the equipment for self catering. The furniture on the extensive balcony is all any one could ask for with superb sea/ mountain and town views. The area around the apartment has bars and very good restaurants, would highly recommend this accommodation
Great apartment with fantastic views
By KENNETH HARKIN on 22-Jun-2017
We have stayed all over the Algarve and this was one of our best apartments. It was clean, the person (Joel) who met us was very friendly and explained how everything worked. He even showed me the private reserved spot in the basement for my car. The apartment was spotless and the owner left a welcome package which was a really nice gesture. The apartment was like a home from home. The only suggestion I would make is to install a grap rail so you can something to grip when leaving the bath! I nearly came a cropper! The balcony has decent quality furniture and faces East-my preference for morning sun. The local bar (Arte Bar) was a nice stopping off place on the way back. Its only a 5 minute walk to the apartment. Overall, we noticed an increase in the amount of stag parties in the Old Town. Maybe they were advised the OT is far better than the Strip! We will definately return and finally I would like to add that the owner has been a joy to deal with. Kenneth and Mary Harkin.
Great Apartment - Views- Location likewise.

Beautiful apartment and great location!
By Olivia Van Der on 20-Apr-2017
It was a really lovely, well kept and clean property. Great location - far enough away from the noise of the town centre, but a 5/10 minute walk to the beach, beautiful restaurants and shops. Will definitely be referring this property to others and personally going back, Paul and Shelley were very pleasant to deal with and made sure everything was organised and covered before our arrival.
By John Dow on 19-Jan-2017
A super apartment with great views, we have stayed here numerous times and it never disappoints us as it is well equipped with everything you need including good WiFi. The apartment is in a great location with great views out to sea from the large balcony with bars and restaurants only a short walk away and for those who wish to explore further there is a local bus stop (Giro Bus) close by which will take you round the town and onto the main bus/coach station. Paul and Shelley are great owners to deal with, very friendly and always quick to reply to any enquiries. We would highly recommend this apartment for your stay in Albufeira John and Ann.
Lovely relaxing break
By Karon Crawford on 28-Sep-2016
I stayed at this apartment with my mum and nephew and it had all the facilities we needed for a very comfortable stay. The place was very clean and had a fantastic balcony which had very comfortable furniture to sit in the sun for hours.

Beautiful apartment. Good for Old Town & Marina.
By Ian Lawson on 30-Jul-2016
The apartment is on the top floor of a smallish apartment block with lovely sea views (although slightly obscured by the hotel roof opposite). The balcony is long, with comfortable outdoor furniture, and is a lovely place to sit and look out to sea - both day and evening. It is a beautifully furnished, spotless and very comfortable apartment. With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, it was perfect for our family of 4 with our 15 and 12 year old sons. In fact - they often didn't want to leave the apartment as they enjoyed just 'chilling' there. In terms of location, it is midway between Old Town (about 10-15 mins walk) and the Marina (about 15-20 mins walk). Both areas are nice for a night out. It took us about 10 mins to walk to the elevator down to Fisherman's Beach, which is a beautiful but busy so get there before 10am if you want sun-loungers and umbrellas. There is a decent sized supermarket a couple of minutes walk downhill (uphill carrying shopping bags). We bought food for breakfast and lunch in the apartment, as well as wine and beer for late night drinks on the balcony. We then ate out each night at various places. The pool area is small and private. It's a bit shady in the mornings but has sun from around lunch time. There are plenty of loungers for the residents and lots of inflatables for the kids. At first I thought it was a bit small, but actually we really enjoyed it sat down there and found it very peaceful. We frequented a very friendly bar called Artes Bar next to the supermarket, where they had a great BBQ night, music and cocktails. We also went there on the first night as we arrived quite late after the supermarket had closed, and we were able to get pizza delivered to the table from the restaurant next door. There are also plenty of different restaurants and bars as you walk towards the Old Town. In summary, it's a quiet, private location but within walking distance of livelier places. If you like big hotels with lots to do and entertainment, then maybe not for you. But if you want a relaxing, private, peaceful time and the freedom to arrange your own itinerary and choose different places to eat and drink, then it is perfect. The communication from the owners was excellent before and after the trip. The agent met us at the apartment to show us round, after a quick phone call on leaving the apartment. If I could change anything - I'd have stayed a few more days as we only had a week.
By Ann Speed on 20-May-2016
The apartment is in a quiet location within walking distance of the town centre, although up hill on the way back! However, that is why there is a lovely view across the bay. Check in was easy and the apartment was extremely clean. The apartment is well furnished and having wi-fi is a real bonus. The owners, Paul and Shelley were great to deal with and very helpful. I definitely recommend this apartment. You have the benefit of the town but are far enough away that the late night partying doesn't affect you
A view with wow factor!
By Anonymous on 30-Mar-2016
Pristine apartment with all home comforts (internet particularly appreciated by teenagers) situated in a quiet area but only short walk to bars and restaurants of old town. Beautiful terrace for sunny morning breakfast with a stunning view right across the bay. Paul & Shelly provided everything for a hassle free holiday including arranging a reasonably priced airport transfer. Would definately visit again and would recommend to friends.
As surprises go "the Best"
By Nancy Buttle on 12-Oct-2015
Every single thing about this break was 100% perfect and went without a hitch. With hardly 24 hours notice these hardy owners confirmed availability, arranged and confirmed transfers and organised us to be met and shown around. We asked about the apartment Wednesday morning and were sat on the balcony in the sun Thursday lunchtime. The apartment exceeded all of our wishes and in fact is far better than its written description or photographs indicate. Guess the panoramic sea view balcony to be about 50 foot long and furnished beyond belief. Inside the apartment is a DREAM, immaculately furnished, spotlessly clean and has facilities superior to any 5* Hotel. Listing individual rooms each and every one earns a resounding 10 out of 10 for quality, comfort and facilities. We had a fabulous time and were reluctant to leave. We would highly recommend contacting Paul and/or Shelley if you are seeking a first class superior apartment which you can book quickly, simply and 100% stress free. Our thanks go to all concerned Paul and Shelley for a quick and easy booking, to Karon, Top Hat Services, and to Dario, Front Row Transfers. Alan & Nance October 2015
Fantastic apartment in great location!
By Kim S on 07-Oct-2015
The apartment was presented to an extremely high standard, and is in a fantastic location. Just a 10 min stroll to the beach, old town restaurants, and marina. The balcony has a beautiful panoramic view, and added bonus that the owners have left binoculars so you can watch the small fishing boats going out in the evenings. We were amazed by how quickly the owners, Paul & Shelley respond to any queries, most impressive! The four of us had a brilliant holiday, and would recommend to anyone. Although as one reviewer said before, ladies, leave the heels at home!
By Caron Stubbs on 21-Sep-2015
we was pleasantly surprised to find out transfer waiting for us at the airport ( organised by the owner ). we was even more surprised to find the apartment was infact so much better than we expected and the photos on the website do not do it justice!! the apartment is of an excellent standard with every minor detail taken into account to help make your holiday as relaxed as possible great communications with the owner always responds very quickly to any correspondance we will definately be coming back here and highly recommend it to you all we went down to Artes Bar and had a BBQ there, its on every Sunday all you can eat for 8.50 euros.... well worth a try, but you need to book a table, we found lots of little bars in the town so many to mention, there is so much choice of nice restaurants with sea views we had a fantastic holiday and we was really sorry to have to come home my only advice is leave your heels at home ladies as there are quite a few hills in parts of the town thank you so much Paul and Shelley for sharing this wonderful apartment with us
By Alex H on 23-Aug-2015
Our family of five have just returned from a great week in Albuferia. The apartment was fantastic, very modern, spacious,clean and with brilliant sea views. The apartment is only a ten minute stroll to the beautiful old town and a 15 minute walk to the marina. We all had a brilliant time and hope to return again. Special thanks to Paul and Shelley the owners for organising the transfers to and from the airport which were superb and all their help.
By Suzanne M on 09-Aug-2015
A fabulous apartment with great views. Very clean and furnished to a very high standard. Set in a very quiet part of the town but only 10min walk to the Old Town or a 5 Euro Taxi ride. Excellent communication from the owner and any queries were answered very promptly. Overall a great family holiday made even better by our accommodation which I would highly recommend
A homely apartment with immaculate sea views!
By Kiran And Family on 27-Jul-2015
Paul and Shelley were absolutely brilliant throughout our booking. The whole process was completed very swiftly and they were very much accessible in terms of promptly responding to emails. Before our arrival in Portugal, they had sent us a brilliant and very informative booklet which specified details of the apartment and also the local area (telling us which were recommended restaurants and places that were worth a visit.) I had found this highly useful as it was our first time in Old Town Albufiera. The apartment was absolutely beautiful and the view from the balcony was just immaculate. The apartment has been very well looked after and has a very warm and homely feel. The apartment is very modern, clean and so well equipped. I would highly recommend for anyone to stay here. We will definitely be looking to stay here again on out next visit to Albufiera. I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed! Thank you ever so much Paul and Shelley for all your help throughout our booking and for giving us such an amazing apartment, which has the most amazing sea views! Kiran & family
