We set the arrival time at your holiday home to be any time after 1600. This is to allow us time to prepare the holiday home for you. We are extremely flexible in that we will try and prepare the holiday home to coincide with your flight arrival time. But we can not guarantee this will happen. We are also happy to allow you leave baggage at the holiday home whilst the property is being prepared allowing you to get the most out of your holiday.
We ask that you carefully read the holiday home manual we will send you before the start of your holiday, as this contains all the contact information of the Manager who will be meeting you and looking after you during your holiday.
Our Manager will be expecting a telephone call from you on arrival day. The Manager will only attend the property after that phone call in readiness to meet you. We do not have a reception and each guest is met personally. If we have more than one client at once arriving we will let you know and ask that maybe you give us a little time. Maybe pop for a coffee and we can call you when we are ready to meet you. Our Manager will like to spend some time with you explaining how appliances work in the holiday home and let you know about the local area and will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
We set the departure time at 1000. We ask for your departure details or plans once you leave us. This way we can schedule our holiday home preparation for the next guest just like we did for you. If we can offer a later stay during the winter months we will try and accommodate you. In the Summer months due to the high volume of guests we have to strictly adhere to the 1000 departure time at the latest.

"This is a fantastic house. The location, decor, furnishings, cleanliness and equipment tick all of the boxes to make your stay in Olhão extremely enjoyable."
"Yet another fabulous stay, agency is outstanding when it comes to communication, flexibility and simply doing everything possible to accommodate our requests. The property is stunning and well located, definitely one of my favourites out of my 7 stays in Olhão. Simply love it."
"Merveilleuse maison de pêcheur typique portugaise. La propreté
est irréprochable. Elle est très bien située, proche du port, du
centre, des commerces. Nous avons utiliser le transfert Faro -Olhão
par Sunline et c'était top. Nous avons également louer une voiture
par And go-Rent a car et c'était parfait également. Tout ceci avec
les conseils précieux de Mars Algarve. Cette région est magnifique.
Nous pourrions y retourner les yeux fermés. Le seul bémol mais
totalement indépendant de la location, c'est la déception de ne pas
pouvoir se baigner dans la mer car la température y est trop
Maison très agréable et spacieuse. Charme authentique d'Olhao.
Nous avons eu un très agréable séjour à Olhão et beaucoup apprécié la maison de location.
Un grand merci à Olesia pour son accueil chaleureux.
Nous sommes bien rentrés et tenions à vous dire combien nous
avions aimé la location.
Tout était parfait et la déco très sympa.
"Jolie maison, bien équipée. Excellente literie. Bien située dans le vieux village, tout à pied. Mention spéciale pour Aline, son accueil efficace et sa gentillesse."
Lovely townhouse in an excellent location. Great roof terrace for sunbathing. Very comfortable and clean and exceptionally quite at night for a good nights sleep. Very near to the marina or the ferries to the islands. Wonderful restaurants and friendly locals. We will be back!
"Maison très agréable et rooftop parfait ! :)"
Sehr schönes Haus, mitten in der Altstadt von Olhao. Die Einrichtung ist sehr geschmackvoll und sehr wohnlich. Die Dachterrasse ist ganz toll! Der Sonnenuntergang kann von dort oben wunderbar genossen werden.
I'm missing Casa Agave already and Olhao!Waking up in New York City today was much different and I miss my morning walk to the market for fresh produce.I can't thank you all enough for a WONDERFUL stay and I look forward to coming again sometime as I truly fell in love with the area and was so impressed by everyone at your company and your fantastic service.
