Hi Caroline
Just a quick note to say we had the most amazing time once again at the villa it was perfect in every way….
Everything went swimmingly x
Hayley B- July 2023 - Hibernia

Villa Hibernia was the perfect villa for our needs. 5 en-suite bedrooms and huge open plan lounge/kitchen diner spilling out onto large terrace overlooking pool. Large pool terrace with lots of grassy areas.
The villa is quite well situated in a nice area and across the road from Baia Grande Hotel, which is a nice reference point for taxis.
The villa was well equipped with lots of extras.
The service from local agent Nuno and booking agent, Ocean Villas was excellent and would definately book again.

Hi Caroline,

I just wanted to say thank you for organising our booking to the wonderful Villa Rene in Vilamoura.
We all had a fantastic time and we were delighted with the villa and how it was kitted out. There was everything we could have wanted and more.
There was a very small issue with a handle coming off a door but that was fixed the morning after reporting without issue.

All in all, highly recommended.

Hi Caroline 

Just a brief line to say we had a fabulous time in the Algarve. Villa Mila is a really wonderful, homely destination and it was a pleasure to meet Victor and Maria, an elderly (79 and 78) husband and wife team who tend to the wonderful garden. They grow papaya, olives, pomegranates and cumquats as well as varied plants and bushes. Guests can pick the fruit. The pool is the cleanest we have experienced in a Villa. 

Thanks for all your help, we will probably book again for the same time next year in the next few days although easyJet hasn’t published its Summer 2024 programme yet.
Alan P - April 2023 - Villa Mila

Hi Caroline,

Apologies I meant to email you before now.

Just a quick note to say we had a great time at the villa and the whole holiday went without a hitch! The villa was great and we couldn’t have been happier, the view and the location to town and the marina were perfect, although the walk back up the hill from the marina is a bit of a killer 😊 Thankfully we jumped in a TUK-TUK instead of walking!
IAN LB - Aug 2022 - Laranjeira

We had a great time, thankyou.

We thought the villa was very well set up and clean, the welcome materials useful and the location excellent. We also appreciated the speed with which the villa manager sorted us out when we managed to lock ourselves out!

Overall we were really pleased and very much enjoyed our stay. 

Best regards
Amy - May 22 - Laranjeira


We had a great stay at Villa Laranjeira and the holiday has done us a world of good.
Wee bit of feedback for you and may I express these are not a criticism just our observations: 

We weren’t given a fob for the house alarm; The smoke alarm in the kitchen on the ceiling was open with no batteries in it .
The safe wasn’t working and the batteries in the main bedroom remote for the air conditioning had run out with no spares , we just replaced them as they were only €1. 
None of this bothered us , and I know on reflection a phone call to the agent would probably have sorted these things out . 

May I reiterate these are not complaints just observations 

All in all we’ve had another fantastic holiday at the villa 

Hi Caroline, I wanted to drop you this quick note to say thank you for everything regarding the villa holiday we had in Portugal.
We arrived home yesterday after a great week in the sun.

The villa was fantastic and well maintained and Nuno the villa manager was very helpful throughout our stay.
I know Covid delayed this vacation for us by a couple of years but it was well worth the effort in the end.
Many thanks, Michael
Michael F. - July 2022 - VILLA BIANCA

Fantastic villa, excellently maintained

We booked to stay here via Ocean Villas initially for June 2020 and had to postpone for 2 years due to Covid. Caroline at Ocean Villas was really great letting us move our booking forward both times. Eventually we got here this year and it was worth the wait! We are a group of 'mature' ladies who have holidayed together for more than 10 years in Spain, Portugal & Lanzarote and this is the best villa we've ever stayed in. Each of the 5 bedrooms was really nice and all had their own bathrooms. There were even lovely toiletries provided too. Everywhere was spotless and very well maintained. Beautiful large kitchen with everything you could possibly need. Plenty of sunbeds and space in the garden and round the pool. There are some nice restaurants within walking distance - especially Dom Dinis, and at Seasons Restaurant Sports bar they have Karaoke night and a couple of nights with tribute entertainers. The hotel Baia Grand is practically next door and you can walk there and get the receptionist to call a taxi for you - this was a great help as a landmark as well whenever we were taxiing home from the Old Town (10 minutes away) At the bottom of the road you can get through to the cliff top coastal walk which is beautiful - a bit rugged and rocky but worth the effort. The gentleman who met us to show us round the villa was really helpful and gave us his number so we could whatsapp him with any questions. Nothing was too much trouble. There was a mid week clean where beds & towels were changed and floors etc cleaned - this was very thorough and again the ladies were very friendly. We did a big shop by taxi when we arrived and then topped up when we were out and about - there isn't really a decent supermarket within walking distance but there's a Spar 1.5km away so we sometimes walked there and then taxied back. I would highly recommend this villa.
Sue A - July 2022 - VILLA HIBERNIA


We had a really lovely time thank you and your place is just so beautiful, perfect for our family with its different entertaining areas too. The location is perfect also, far enough away from the town for us oldies but close enough for our children who are in their twenties and one a teenager, they loved it!

Sherrie G - June 2022 - QUINTUS COURT

We have just returned from a week at this beautiful villa. 6 adults and 4 children under 4. It had everything you could wish for and more. Loads of space both inside and out. We paid extra to have the pool heated and it was well worth it, the children spent hours in and out of the pool. The only downside is that the location is a little far out from supermarkets and restaurants. We used taxis to go to a large supermarket which cost us about £5. The property could do with an information folder to give people information about the local area. It was only by chance that we found the beautiful local beach. Overall I would highly recommend this property.
Anne O - May 2022 - VILLA HIBERNIA

Caza Azul - Thank you
Just wanted to say although my birthday & holiday did not go according to plan and some of my family members were unable to come due to Covid and the last minute quarantine restrictions the three of us that did decide to go had a fantastic time. Turning 50 was not so bad with the weather and a lovely clean pool to jump into. Downside having to quarantine on our return.

Caza Azul villa was amazing, very clean and tidy and had everything you could wish for. Rogerio was very helpful on arrival and also the taxi company recommended by yourselves were prompt and on time on picking us up both on our arrival and departure to the airport.

Hopefully should we get to some normal next year I will definitely consider returning in 2021 and I will ensure that both family and friends are aware of the excellent service  and understanding you and your company supplied throughout the pandemic.

Margaret L- CASA AZUL 

Hi Caroline,
Just a quick email to say thank you for the assistance you have given for our holiday.

We arrived back safe and sound, disappointed to quarantine having witnessed the safety in Albufeira but that's out of our hands.
The villa was fantastic!.
I hope the quarantine ends as soon as possible for you.
Mark D - - Laranjeira

Hi Caroline
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help in organising our family holiday.
We had an amazing time, in our favourite area of Portugal and have made memories to last a lifetime. The villa was in the perfect location and suited the age ranges really well.
Thanks again and we will be looking forward to booking with you again!
Kind regards


Hi Caroline
Just to let you know we had a fantastic holiday at Quintus Court. It really is a beautiful villa and we were thrilled with it.

The pool and and garden area was stunning, and private, and we could not have hoped for better.

It really was just perfect!

Also thanks to you for making the booking process so easy - we will certainly book with you next time, hopefully to the same villa

Thanks a lot

Judith W - Quintus Court

Hi Caroline, hope you are well.
Just a short note to thank you and the team at Ocean Villas along with Rogerio and the team in Portugal for arranging the rental of the apartment at Rosal. As usual the service we received was excellent and our holiday went without a hitch, which in truth is why we keep returning, everything is so easy.
The apartment was also the usual high standard of comfort and cleanliness, Rogerio was waiting for us, showed us around and then left us to it which again is exactly what we are looking for, please pass on my thanks to him.
I.S. - Rosal

Hello Caroline and Gareth , We are just back from a wonderful week  in  Casa Azul and just I wanted to say a big thank you all round !
Everything was perfect and everyone enjoyed the week very much indeed.  The whole family loved every minute and the villa proved just perfect.  The two downstairs bedrooms were ideal for daughter and grandchildren while myself and my husband and my sister in law and my niece were very happy in the rooms upstairs.

I know I had made  a particular point of asking for the pool to be substantially heated and it most certainly was!    Babies and grandparents alike loved every minute in the pool and were in it Morning noon and night!   In fact my 2 year old granddaughter got over her fear of water and by the end of the week we Couldn’t keep her out of it !!

We have all agreed that a repeat week next year is a must and Ocean Villas will be our first choice,   so again very many thanks for all your help and to the Portuguese team for their part in our excellent week ‘s holiday  
Kind Regards
DW-Casa Azul

Gareth,  Just a belated note to thank you for organising our rental of Quintus Court. The villa was absolutely fabulous and ideal for our family gathering, and we were very well looked after by the maid, Lourdes. Hopefully we will be back in the future as we all had such a good time there.
Once again many thanks
R.L – Quintus Court

Hi Gareth,
We have just returned from our 11 night stay in Albuferia after using ocean villas for the first time.We have been going to Portugal since our girls were of a young age and this was our first time of breaking away from going to the same place again and
again. We have had the best holiday, the apartment was Suberb, the transfer excellent and Nuno who greeted us at the apartment was fab so so helpful, he couldn't of done more. The details you sent me prior to our holiday were faultless and we were abit nervous that everything would go to plan and it most certainly did. Thankyou for helping us make lots of family memories and we will definitely recommend you to other people and will use you again.
Thankyou very much
P - Rosal

5 Star Service - Our whole experience with Ocean Villas has been first class. Our accommodation was amazing and at a great price that couldn’t be bettered anywhere else online. The level of service and correspondence that we received from Gareth at Ocean Villas throughout was of the highest order. We are already looking to book again for next year”.
Mr R.J. - Tivoli Victoria Residences

I just wanted to contact you to let you know what a great week we had at the Villa Pinheiro last week. The villa was brilliant and the villa manager who we saw most days was so helpful. We would definitely return and will use your website for future holidays.
N.B. - Villa Pinheiro

Just wanted to say what an amazing week we had at Villa Alice in Albufeira. The Villa was in an excellent location - close to the Strip & local amenities but in a nice quiet residential area so very easy to relax & take advantage of the lovely pool! The transfers that you also arranged went without a hitch & the 2 drivers that we had were great. The Villa contained pretty much everything you could need (we did miss having music - but will know to bring an ipod next time!) Definitely planning to rent this Villa again next year!
A.M. - Villa Alice

Just wanted to feedback on staying at Villa Pinheiro, Pateo. The villa was top notch and everything was well looked after, we couldn't have been looked after better. They had left us a welcoming pack which was extremely helpful as we arrived very late at the villa. Can you pass on our thanks to the Villa owner and we will certainly consider staying there again.
L.S. - Villa Pinheiro

We have just returned from a week at Villa Hibernia and wanted to convey the excellent service we got from your local agents. I would like you to pass on our thanks to your agents for their efficient and courteous responses. The Villa was excellent all that we wanted.
P.E. - Villa Hibernia

Just wanted to say we had a really fabulous holiday in Casa Azul. The villa was perfect - very light, airy, spacious and well equipped. The kids loved the pool (I’m very glad we chose to have it heated) and the beaches nearby. We had a very relaxed, laid back week which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you to you for your advice – it was spot on. We had some lovely meals, found some great beaches and the water park was a big hit. Please also pass on our sincere thanks to Rogerio and Nuno who were incredibly helpful. They helped make the holiday feel like a real break and nothing was too much trouble for them. I would highly recommend this villa and your service, thank you.

After enjoying a week at the Martinhal just wanted to say thank you, and also request some info on a possible repeat booking.Look forward to hearing from you and thanks again for excellent service last time round.

Hi Caroline, We have just returned from Villa Mila and wanted to drop you a quick email so say thank you so much for the fantastic service. We had a brilliant time, everything ran smoothly and the Villa was fantastic.
We will definately use your company again and recommend to others!
A.E. - Villa Mila

Just back from our stay in Villa Bonita, Gale. We enjoyed our stay very much in Villa Bonita - The Apolinia supermarket was much nearer - in fact it could be accessed directly out the back gate—a major plus bringing the shopping home. Thank you for all your help, since we made the original booking several months ago. We would look very positively at booking a villa (including Villa Bonita) with your company again.
H.C - Villa Bonita

Hi Gareth, Just wanted to get in touch and say how very much we enjoyed our recent stay at the Vila Rosal apartment. The standard of accommodation was exceptional and the complex itself immaculately clean, peaceful and very secure. The facilities within the apartment were pristine with everything in 'show-room' condition and the pool towels a lovely extra also. From our initial contact with yourself through to meeting the manager on site everything went very smoothly. Having stayed in apartments in this area many times before, the Vila Rosal development exceeded all others and to top everything off, the maid service was also exceptional being more frequent and thorough than expected. We would be more than happy to book with yourselves again next year and have already recommended your company to our family and friends.
M.S. - Rosal Apartments

Thank you for organising Villa Quintus Court for us again this year. Please would you let Nuno/Rogerio know how pleased we were with their service and that of the lady that came in every other day to clean and tidy up. We are already reconsidering rebooking this wonderful Villa next year.
D.D. - Quintus Court

Our second holiday at Quintus court was even better than the first. We all approved the new outdoor seating area and named it the 'executive lounge'. Once again, the villa was spotless, gardens beautifully maintained and every effort had been made by Rogerio and Nuno for our comfort. The table-tennis table was very well used and our 11year old granddaughter organised the 'Quintus Court Open', with an Olympic style ceremony for the winners. All eight of us had a lovely, memorable holiday. The transfers and car hire arrangements were perfect, weather great, beaches, especially Gale Beach, superb and local restaurants welcoming. Our thanks go to the owners of this beautiful villa for allowing us to 'live the dream' for two wonderful weeks.
G.J. - Quintus Court

Gareth – just wanted to drop a note to say how much we loved the recommendation you gave us – we had a fabulous time and nothing was left to chance by you and your team when catering for our needs. Thank you very much and we will most definitely be back in Monte De Quinta! Best,
S.H. - Monte da Quinta

Just to let you know we absolutely loved the villa, and had a fantastic holiday. It was so central and the shop at the end of the road, so convenient. The transfer was great also. We would love to book again for next year, so would like to enquire about prices and availability. Kindest regards, a very happy Ocean Villas customer

I just wanted to say that we have returned from our Villa Mimosa at Martinhal incredibly happy. The residence was of the highest standard and resort facilities, particularly the childrens’ clubs were first rate. I would have no hesitation in recommending this resort to any of your clients. Thank you once again for your help on this.
K.J. - Martinhal

We are at Villa Sara and just wanted to say thank you - we are very much satisfied. It is really very private, comfortable. Personnal here is very nice and very qualitative (if I can say so). So thank you very much for your good job - we are happy. This was our first experience of renting villa and now we cannot understand how can we live in a hotel further :-) So next time we will definately contact to you again.
J.P. - Villa Sara

After returning from holiday on Friday evening I wanted to provide you with some immediate feedback.The apartment Villa Rosal was outstanding. The place was described as luxurious on your website and it really was. It was spacious and had everything we could possibly need. The complex was quiet, clean and relaxed. We would definitely recommend your company and would definitely visit this apartment again. It was just the break we needed. We were very impressed so thank you.
N.F. - Rosal Apartments

Thank you so much for your help! We had a lovely holiday in Vilamoura. The house was in fantastic location and we will definately be going back again. We are now even looking at buying in Vilamoura asd we fell in love with it so much. It is a fantastic place to leave the hussle and bussle.
