Perfect get away
Perfect family home with complete privacy and security. The villa is well maintained and doesn't lack anything. Very spacious and the bedrooms are separated to give everyone a very private and comfortable feeling. We had a great stay there and am great full to the home owner for providing a fruit basket, coffee, milk, eggs, etc. as we arrived late in the evening. There are many great Golf courses, restaurants, shops, and activities in and around the property. Luxury and comfort. Thank you for hosting us.”
We were two couples ones with a nine year old child. The house was perfect for everyone and is purpose made for any child of that age. The slide and pool is perfect as is the general landscaping of the pool surrounds. The barbecue area is exceptionally thought and laid out. The house inside had everything with a very well equipped kitchen and sitting areas. The main bedroom balcony is a treat. The owner was especially very helpful before our arrival and his amusing intro book was a very good guide to avoid eating mistakes and get to the heart of the area (assuming you wanted to leave the house). Very stress free stay in a nice area and worth anybody's keys. Thank you very much David!”
We enjoyed a wonderful week at this lovely home outside of Faro. The back yard is spacious and gave us the feel of being at a five star resort. The outdoor kitchen and dining areas are over the top as well as the lovely pool with waterfall and slide. Although we did not swim the weather was sunny and in the mid sixties for most of our stay over Christmas so we thoroughly enjoyed the patio areas. The inside of the home has a zen like feel yet comfotable and cozy. There are plenty of day trips (Lagos, Faro, Seville) that we felt like we barely scratched the surface. The owner is gracious and helpful and I would highly recommend any member to reserve this property.”
Our stay in Casa Wadma from arrival to departure was a pleasure. Our host David is quite a character and his information pack was both amusing and informative with great attention to detail. The house was presented in show house condition and is ideally located to take advantage of all the Algarve has to offer. The slide at the pool was a real treat. We had an unavoidable leak with a water filter fitting and a team of 5 including a plumber, housekeepers and a representative from the management company were on site in 15 mins. David has a fabulous support system in place and we are happy to recommend his beautiful home unreservedly . "We will be back". ”
