What my guests loved it more:

Svenja (Mar 2017) the mattress was really comfortable!

Martine (Fev 2017) thank you for all the informations you gave us, the flat is very well décorated

Marc (Out 2016) Tout

Anne (Sept 2016) I felt Maria had put a lot of thought into what her guests would need staying in the flat. The pictures accurately reflected the flat and its environs. The location was superb and I didn't feel the need to move far from the flat - it was just so comfortable.

Arantxa (Ago 2016) Thank you so much for all your help! You really dont know what you have here!!!!

Vincent (Jun 2016) L'appartement est très bien équipé. La terrasse est super. Wifi super

Dale (May 2016)Maria, thank you again hour hosting us. We were extremely impressed with you, your apartment, and Praia da Luz. We will return one day. Cheers! D&C

Max (Apr 2016) “Die Aussicht. Die Lage. Die Größe der Wohnung. Das Bad. Die gut ausgestattete Küche. Eigentlich alles ;-) ”

Seb (Apr 2016) Lage (Nähe zum Naturschutzgebiet, Lagos, Strand) Die Einrichtung ist so schön! Ich würde meine Wohnung ganz ähnlich einrichten

Laura (Fev 2016) Everything was really nice! Thank you!

Jordi (NOV 2015) Kitchen. Views

Bob (Nov 2015) The personal touches and the help from Enrique and Carla made us feel very welcome and of course the lovely views made it a holiday to remeber.

Martine (Out 2015) confortable,belle terasse où on peut dejeuner au soleil et faire des barbecus

Sven (Out 2015) Greatest apartment of our portugal trip (we stayed at 7 places in total).

Mél (Out 2015) Joli appartement, propre et agréable. On se réveil vraiment aux sons des vagues..

Angela (Ago 2015) Destacar que estaba todo muy limpio, así da gusto!! Cuidado todo al detalle ;-)

Shannon (Jun 2015) Thank you so much for the incredible stay in Luz! We absolutely loved it and hope to come back very very soon! Shannon xx

Hilke (Maio 2015) The appartment offered every thing we needed for our stay in Praia da Luz!

Bianca (Maio 2015) We loved everything about this place! The location is great, our host, Maria was excellent; funny, understanding, welcoming and simply very nice! We are very grateful of our meet with the lovely area and people of Portugal, Luz! Everything was perfectly thought for! We simply had to enjoy!

Lucia (Abr 2015) Terraza en el mar

What they think that I should change:

Sven (Out 2015) Nothing to do. It is perfect.
Martine (Out 2015) difficile de mieux faire super
Mél (Out 2015) Dommage que nous n'ayons pas rencontré notre hôte. Cela dit nous avons quand même bien été accueilli
Bhavesh (Ago 2015) Unfortunately the address provided did not have enough information for our taxi driver to find it. It was very frustrating. The check in time is very late, with an early check out time (although to be fair to the host, it is clearly and accurately listed).

Great place! Literally one block from the pedestrian area of Luz and the beach. All the restaurants are within 5 minutes also. The apartment was great, exactly what you need. The only downside was one of the balcony doors didn't work but that was okay because the main balcony did open and was wonderful!! You can see the water, and hear the waves. Thanks Maria!

Maria’s apartment is a real Gem! It is located Praia da luz which is a 5km away from central Lagos which I did not realise when booking this accommodation, however it worked out to be a blessing in disguise! We loved staying 20 metres or so from the beach and local cafes. Was great having a generously sized apartment to ourselves for a few days! Comfy bed, great shower.

We spent 3 nights in the apartment of Maria and we truly enjoyed our time at her beautiful place. The apartment was well equipped, there was all the stuff you could need. The place was just like in the photos (cute and beautifully decorated) and the location was awesome; 2 minutes walking to the beach and a food market just next to the building. The village is really calm and small but also very pretty and there goes often busses to Lagos (bus trip takes about 20 minutes). Also the check-in and check-out was easy to arrange with Maria's assistant and they were really flexible with everything. I would definitely recommend Maria's place, I have nothing to complain about. Thank you so much again!

Maria's place was clean, tastefully decorated and thoughtfully prepared for her guests. It looked exactly as advertised. Maria was a top notch communicator -- from booking to arriving, during our stay and even after! She is a ten star host who went the extra mile to ensure that we were comfortable and had a great vacation in Portugal even after we checked out. The balcony was lovely and it was nice to hear the waves from our room :) We noticed that the shower stalls are smaller in Portugal than the ones we have in Canada, so this is something to keep in mind if you require space. Also, be prepared to climb the steps to access the unit. This was not an issue for us at all because there are only two half flights, but seniors or anyone with accessibility issues may have problems. Overall an excellent stay! Would highly recommend :)

Maria's flat is ideally located, just 5 minutes from the beach, and is perfect to relax and enjoy your holidays, especially with the balcony (barbecue and seaview :) ). Communication was smooth - by email with Maria - and also with her friend Carla who welcomed us. We had a great time, I highly recommend Maria's place!

Great location to explore Algarve, fine neighborhood, with lots of good things to do with kids. Cozy apartment, with a wonderful sea view where you can make barbecue. Maria was really kind, always ready to comunicate and made our stay the most comfortable. Carla was really nice and prestative too. I only have good things to say, we had a wonderful time I will never forget.
