The space

The Orchid Room is one of 2 bedrooms to rent in my home Villa Erin, this luxury villa with large pool and numerous sun terraces all on ground floor. This ideal location is a 5 minute walk to Oura Beach with breathtaking views. There are numerous restaurants, bars and shops within a 2 minute walk as I'm located beside the famous Albufeira "Strip"
Transport can be arranged from airport to villa with advance notice, I'm a 2 minute walk from the bus stop which goes to Albufeira Old Town and other resorts

Guest access

Guests have access to the pool, sun terraces, breakfast counter, bar area, dining room, pool table, sitting room.

Interaction with guests

As I live in the property I'm generally always available for information on local attractions, restaurant and bar recommendations or just to chill out by the pool for a chat if I'm not walking my little bichon frise "Leah Blossom" by the beach

Richard is excellent with communication, making sure I was all set before staying at his home as well as after I left. His friend Lisa checked me in and was just lovely. She was very helpful throughout my stay. I appreciated the gated driveway where I kept my car. Richard's house is located right off of the main strip where most of the tourists visit bars and restaurants, however, it is very well secluded from the noise, so you can get a good night's sleep. His dog is a sweetheart as well!

Richards home was exactly as described and the reviews didn't do it justice. The villa was lovely and clean and so quiet for it's location, right off the strip. A 30 minute walk from the old town and 5 minutes from the beach. A fantastic location for bars and restaurants. Richard was absolutely amazing, by far the best host I've stayed with. He had great suggestions for food and nightlife and was wonderful to sit and chat with. He made me feel at home from the second I arrived and his communication during my stay was great. Leah Blossom completed the stay, a beautiful well behaved pup owned by Richard, she was lovely company when Richard was out and about. Couldn't speak reccomend more. Thank you Richard

Richard is an amazing host. He makes you feel welcomed and is willing to go out of his way to make sure your trip is wonderful. The room was nicely decorated, comfortable and very clean. The Villa is a block off of the main strip but still very quiet. It is a quick walk to the beach.

Villa Erin is situated just off the busy and lively strip of new town, making it a great location for the beach and restaurants. Don't let the close location of Villa Erin to the clubs put you off, as you will hardly hear a sound of the strip! While Richard was away in Ireland he still managed to be an attentive host, checking up on us whenever he could. He also left us in the care of his good friend Lisa and cute dog Leah. Both made our stay very enjoyable. I definitely recommend staying here if you want 1/ a good time 2/ relaxing atmosphere 3 /privacy and 4/ a great holiday with amazing memories Thank you again, Richard, Lisa and Leah xx

Richards place was just amazing. Super nice room with everything you could wish for. Had a nice swim in the outside swimming pool. Loved the little dog that cruised around the house. Richards friend Lisa was very friendly as well and welcomed us at the place. We would really like to come back and enjoy again!

Firstly the ease in communication with Richard was fantastic and do take advantage of booking your transfer with Jose, I'm sure he's the cheapest and certainly extremely punctual. Villa Erin is in an excellent location just off the beach end of the strip and surprisingly quiet given its lively location which seems a contradiction in terms but wait until you arrive and you will see exactly what I mean. Richard is there to warmly greet you and first impressions of the Villa are great. The photo's are all accurate but in real life you really get the wow factor. We stayed in the Orchid Room with a really spacious en-suite and a large walk in wardrobe. We were more than happy with the room-Richard also rents out a second room which was also fantastic. We were made to feel at home immediately with Richard and after our tour of the property which includes a rooftop terrace as well as the pool we sat with Richard and enjoyed a cold beer whilst picking his brain about what to do and see locally.He was also kind enough to invite us on a walk with Leah the cutest Bichon Frise you'll ever see the next morning. I must apologise Rich for leaving you negotiate the rocks on our beach walk with my wife Linda aka "Lara Croft" lol !!! So in a nutshell if your looking for something a bit special with an extremely attentive host then I'd highly recommend you booking the Villa Erin!!! Many thanks Rich Pat,Linda and Taia xxxxx
