Seaview Apartment is situated in the idyllic algarvian village of Praia da Luz, literally a few steps from the beautiful sandy beaches. You will also be two minutes walk from the local restaurants, supermarkets (stocked with international products),

The space

What is really great about this place is the fantastic views of the sea and Praia da Luz cliffs and of course the location 2 minutes walk from the beach. Another reason the location is so great is because the apartment is close to everything shops, cafés, bars and restaurants. It is even a minute away from the bus stop and taxi rank.

Guest access

Guests will have the use of two bedrooms, one bathroom, a fully equipped and operational kitchen, a living room with dinning area and a large open terrace with sea and cliff views, ideal for barbeques (equipment included). Wifi is not included but if you must have internet access on holiday there are cafés really close with WiFi or even the local library where you have WiFi and computers to use for free.

The living room has a TV with access to four Portuguese channels and some foreign channels.
We also have a small book swapping shelf in the flat.

Interaction with guests

I like to help guests with any question they have if I can. It is so important for me that guests have a good holiday. Guests will then have a contact number for me and my phone will always be on and any messages or calls will be answered quickly, I also only live 5 minutes away. Depending on how many days guests are staying I will be popping by to do housekeeping and make sure everything is going well. I am not invasive though and do respect guests privacy.

Other things to note

We really miss living here and look forward to spending holidays here relaxing on the beach, walking along the promenade and watching the sunset from the veranda, so we hope you enjoy it too.

Viky has a spacious apartment on the see front. Very close to bars and restaurants. I bit noisy as there are restaurants under the flat (i recommend Restaurant Atlantico, the best see food/portugal food we had during our stay, great service). We loved having our breakfast on the terrace with a gorgeous view. The flat was minimalist was very clean. Only disappointment that the bed was uncomfortable and the washing machine didn't work properly. Apart from that, we really enjoyed our stay in Luz.

Response from Viky:
Those issues are important and we are trying to deal with them but it isnt easy when the apartment is permanently occupied. The apartment is meant to be basic and minimalist elsewhere you have mentioned flat pillows (did you see that there were more in the cuboard in the bedroom? )and a hoover that doesnt work (the hoover is not for guest use, it does work but only we know how to use it.) there are two brooms and the apartment is not very big. Also you mentioned I should invest more in the apartment, although this is being done gradually and when possible, I would like to remind that large investments mean large price readjustments and I like to keep the price affordable.

Viky was a wonderfully attentive host at our check in and then gave us all of the space we needed to enjoy this place. It's really really well located above several lovely restaurants and the sea really is THAT close and indescribably clear and blue! :) the villages in the area are also worth exploring, especially to the east, so this makes a great spot to stay totally or to use as a jump point. Also, special thanks to Viky for helping us reunite with the mobile phone that we so foolishly left behind. Wonderful customer service! :)

Everything was perfect, and for us the location was ground zero. Thank you

Viky is a very friendly and nice host. She immediately took action after a problem we had in the appartment. She cleaned the house twice during our stay and provided us also twice with new towels. Tip: If you get the WIFI password from the restaurant below, you can use it in the appartment as well:-) very close to the beach. We enjoyed our stay:-)

Wonderful location very close to the beach and with a gorgeous view from a private patio. Viky is terrific and found us when we got lost on our way into town and led us in the right direction. The flat is basic but comfortable but you won't spend much time indoors with the beautiful surroundings. The flat sits above a restaurant but surprisingly little noise travels up into the flat. Would recommend to others.

Nous avons passé un très bon sejour chez Viky pendant 10 jours. La mer est juste a côté ainsi que des restos et a 200m, quelques bars. L'appart correspond bien aux photos et je recommande pour tous ceux qui souhaitent visiter et explorer l'Algarve!

Viky User Profile

Hello I was born and raised in Lagos and lived in London for ten years where I took my Anthropology degrees and had my daughter. I am quite passionate about the Algarve it has a hidden identity that most tourists don't see, Lagos area is quite rich artistically and the cultural and local historical identity is quite interesting. If you are into that then the book The First Global Village might be interesting. Lagos and Praia da Luz are both really good for holiday but if I want to go out every night partying I would choose Lagos and if I wanted to mostly go to the beach, rest and party sometimes I would choose Praia da Luz. But like I said : I would be happy in either place on holiday.
