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.

Our online Guest book is compatible with smart phones and tablets meaning you can take the guest book with you where ever you go to maximise your holiday experience.
During your holiday if you find places not in the book you would like to recommend to future guests please do let us know and we would love to add them to our book. The idea is to offer a great book that guests find useful.

"El apartamento es tal y como aparece en las fotografías. Tiene
todas las comodidades y está todo muy nuevo. Pese a estar en una
calle donde hay algún edificio vacío y medio en ruinas, la
ubicación es muy buena y parece segura, a un solo paso del río.
Nuestra estancia ha sido fantástica en este lugar, así que lo
recomiendo al 100%"
"Apartamento con todas las comodidades. Todo muy nuevo. Menaje de cocina completísimo. Claudia de Mars Algarve fue muy agradable. Recomendable al 100%."
Top service, top apartment. A bit noisy with morning supermarket delivery, but where is Tavira not loud in the morning? All in all, very good, including the friendly and helpful care by the staff. We'll be back!
