I don’t know where you’ll find better value - this place is amazing! Huge room with a big private bathroom and Netflix. The house has wifi, rooftop area and a large common area to use. Everything is clean, there is good quality towels and linen and overall it’s very secure. We were soooo comfortable! Great tips and help for what to do in Faro too.

Filipe is very kind and helpful. He let us store our bags and change our clothes before check-in. The house is the cleanest air b&b we have been to and the rooftop balcony attached to our room was a real bonus. You can sit and relax up there in the sun, even in November! This is a really great place to stay to explore Faro. One bus from the airport is easy to find and cheap too. Really close to the old town and waterfront. Great stay. Thanks again.

Filipe's house is very charming and located near the center of Faro (everything is walking distance, as Faro itself is not very big). There is a big free parking lot close to the apartment, which was very convenient for us since we traveled by car. Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet Filipe since we stayed only for one night, but everything worked out perfectly, the communication was flawless and the instructions very clear. The whole house is cosy, bed sheets and bathroom were very clean and the bed was also very comfortable. Really nothing bad to say, I would certainly come again and recommend it to everyone visiting Faro :)

The room I had was very light and airy - characterful but well furnished and equipped, with an ensuite shower room. I liked the roof terrace too. Filipe was welcoming and friendly. The location was quite handy for the old town although too far for me to drag a suitcase over the cobbled pavements from the bus station . Filipe provided a map & info re cafes & restaurants which was helpful.

Response from Filipe:
Hello Pam, thank you so much for your nice comments here and in the guest book. As described in the listing the house is central located with a beautiful 10 min walk from the bus station and only a 3 min walk to the historical old Town. The walk is very nice along the old city and near the Ria Formosa natural park. :)
