The communication from the host was excellent. The house is beautiful and had every amenity. The floors were unbelievably clean - which was incredible given the property is in the country surrounded by dirt / rocks. The entire house was super clean. The pool was very nice, although cold, just like the oceans in Portugal! For the price, this house can't be beat. Wifi was spotty, although the host worked hard trying to fix it, we only had working internet for 1 of our 6 days of staying, which definitely added an unexpected cost to our cell phone bill. The house is in a perfect central location between Portimao and Lagoa. We loved the gated drive and that every room has it's own bathroom - that was wonderful. The beds aren't very comfortable, so some had aching backs and the sofas are quite old in the house, but again, for the price, you can't expect super luxury,. All in all, it's a wonderful house, the host and his mother are excellent and we would highly recommend this property.
