2 bed, 2 bath Penthouse duplex apartment with spectacular views over the sea/ocean and the Old Town. In a most enviable location, elevated on the edge of the Old Town you get the views 'to die for' without the climb up and down to the town and beach which are just a ride away on the outside escalator a few metres from the apartment block. So after a hard day sunbathing on the beach, shopping, or just exploring the Old Town, or after a relaxing evening in one of the dozens of restaurants, your penthouse apartment is just an escalator ride away. (No taxis required). But if even that sounds too energetic why not while the day away around the pool and then retreat to one of your balconies for sundowners and a romantic 'alfresco' meal taking in the truly spectacular views at dusk.
The two floor duplex apartment has been recently decorated with some new artwork too, new air con units, re-fitted kitchen, some new out door furniture on the balconies, new bed linen & towels, all adding to the modern yet traditional style and comfort of the apartment. There is a Sony flat screen TV in the lounge with a 'local' Meo streaming box giving dozens of channels & movies from Portugese TV, and a UK TV streaming box also giving dozens of TV channels & movies from UK & international TV providers, plus 7 day catch-up. Free 'unlimited' wifi internet access is provided so all connected devices are catered for..! There is also a CD player, a DVD player together with a selection of CDs & DVDs. A large selection of books completes the indoor 'entertainment' provided.
Outside there are balconies upstairs & down, and with the duplex layout some privacy is provided if two couples or a family require it. The two bathrooms ( one upstairs & one down) add to the convenience and comfort of guests as well. The small kitchen is well equipped, modern with granite worktops, Bosh ceramic hob and oven, stainless steel extractor, under worktop fridge and small worktop freezer. Two stools at the small drinks bar in the bay window overlooking the ocean , Old Town & beach complete the kitchen layout. A small utility cupboard off the entrance hall houses the electric hot water boiler and washing machine.
Outside the apartment front door, just down a few steps is the lovely, recently re-tiled, pool, it also has spectacular views over the town, ocean and beach, it has a shallow and deep end, and a sun deck area. At the far end, down a few steps is a small shady garden area where you can cool off if dipping in the pool is not enough...!
Due to the great location of the apartment a car ( or taxis) is absolutely not necessary, as everything for a great holiday is literally on your doorstep, but should guests hire a car to explore further afield we own a space in the ground floor garage which they can use at no extra cost.
Great apartment with fantastic view.

Stayed for 12 days with two teenage daughters in this lovely apartment which exceeded expectations, very spacious, clean and well equipped. Met by Steve to show us around which was really helpful. Lots of little extras like beach towels, cupboard full of items such as umbrellas and cool box which were really useful. Lovely view from both balconies and the kitchen. Ideally located for the lovely pool (no shortage of sunbeds as other residents only used them when actually at the pool), escalators to the beach and restaurants/bars. The duplex layout suited us as teenagers had the singles and en-suite upstairs and we had the downstairs near to kitchen/lounge. Amy answered any questions very quickly on behalf of Keith and was great in helping us decide between this apartment and their other apartment in the same block. We would highly recommend this apartment, you would be hard pressed to find a better one. When we return this will be first on our list. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

We have been coming to this apartment (and the other one in the complex) for a number of years and it is always fantastic.
In the weeks leading up, the owner always contacts us to see if there is anything we need swapping around as we have a 3 and 6 year old.
We are always met at the front entrance by Steve, who shows us up and explains any changes to the apartment (TV, WiFi etc) to us. The apartment is always spotless when we get there too.
Our favourite part is that we can be on the beach quick as a flash and also back in the apartment at night without having to queue for the taxis.
Already booked for 2019 too!
Excellent Penthouse and holiday
By Alison Crisp on 11-Apr-2018
We rented this penthouse from 11/04/18 to 18/04/18. This is our second stay and for both visits found the apartment to be spotlessly clean and well maintained and the views from the balconies are stunning. Keith, the owner, is great to deal with and very helpful and answered any queries quickly and on arrival Steve welcomed us and again is very helpful if you need any advice. The location of the penthouse is fantastic, only a few minutes walk to the beach and local cafes and many restaurants. The old town square is a lovely place to sit and have a drink whilst soaking up the sunshine. There’s lots to do locally and we enjoyed one of the cave boat trips booked via the Agar Experience at the Marina. We would thoroughly recommend this penthouse and have already booked our return visit for next year. Thanks to Keith and Steve.

We booked Keith's apartment for 2 weeks. The contact with Keith was excellent. The apt was very clean and had everything you could wish for on hols. Location was superb. We would highly recommend this property. Steve who does meet & greet tells you everything you need to know & his wife Debbie keeps the apt spotless. We enjoyed it so much we have booked again for next year.

We booked Keith's beautiful apartment for 10 days. I had never booked directly before and Keith was brilliant, he responded immediately and professionally to any questions that I had. Just before travelling, Keith gave me the contact details of Steve who would meet us at the apartment on arrival. Steve was waiting for us with a cheery smile, showed us the ropes and gave us some tips on good places to eat etc. The apartment was top notch, the location was superb overlooking Fisherman's beach with views to die for, perfectly situated for a holiday exploring the Old Town. We truly could not have asked for any better. The apartment was spacious and airy, the aircon was great and there was everything you could need facility wise and more- even things like beach mats, cool box, beach umbrellas, hairdryers, loads of books in a book case (I read a couple and left one there too!) Large flat screen TV and wifi. The apartment was spotlessly clean too. I also found the fact that the apartment had a bedroom and bathroom upstairs really good as it gave my son and his girlfriend a little more privacy. There was a small safe to put valuables in which was useful. The pool was quiet and just a few steps down from the apartment which was perfect. The only one tiny thing I could have done with in the apartment was a small freezer as we just had the small compartment within the fridge. It would have been handy to put ice creams in and my husband likes to virtually freeze his drinks in hot weather but just a small point really as we managed. Thank you so much Keith for allowing us to use your property, it really was home from home and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to any friend or family. I really do hope to return again in the future.

This was our third visit to this apartment as always it was clean and tidy,well equipped with every single thing you could want, a washer easy to use, iron etc it was like being in your own home but with added sunshine, will defo be going back because of the friendly service from Steve and Debbie who do your meet and greet and the professional way it is all arranged by Keith, hope to see you all soon Kim & Michael Taylor. Darlington.
The views are to die for especially at sunset on the balcony drinking a few glasses of Baileys!!!! (not wine Keith( This was the 2nd time we stayed in this fabulous apartment. We could not fault this apartment or communication via Steve and Keith. Keith has been just brilliant regarding communication regarding booking, customer service etc. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have already booked for 2016 and we are only home since 13/09/15 (but contacted Keith during our holiday from 3/9/15 - 13/09/15).The location is wonderful and easy to access the Old Town square and everything it has to offer. The apartment was very clean, very well maintained and comfortable and has has all the amenities that would would need for a self-catering holiday - even DVDs to watch! The property was found to be better than advertised. We especially benefited from the availability of WiFi within the apartment. Furthermore, the air-conditioning was just brill both in living room and bedrooms. We would recommend this property to family and friends. Can't wait until we go back to Albufeira and this property next year.
