About Nancy Dawe

We are Canadians resident in Malaysia, where we have lived for over 15 years. We travel frequently, love to explore, and have always dreamed about owning a property in the Algarve. We find the Portuguese people are incredibly friendly, the area is steeped in history, the wine is amazing, and the food is delicious.

Nancy Dawe purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Nancy Dawe chose Vilamoura

After traveling the breadth of the Algarve region, we liked the feel of the Vilamoura area the best. There is foreign influence, but not too much as to dilute the character of the local people, English is widely spoken, and you can reach beautiful, quaint villages or ruins within just a 15-20 minute drive of Vila Sol. Or, you can chose to relax or walk on the beach, go shopping, or engage in water sports at the nearby marina. So much to like about it!

What makes this townhome unique

The Palmrya resort is immaculately maintained, family-friendly, and close to lots of amenities so quickly became our first choice when deciding where to invest. As recent golf enthusiasts, we love the fact that there is so much choice in premier golf courses within 5 km.

Lovely holiday townhouse

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing 10 day stay at Casa Amelda. The start was not so good however. We arrived at 6 pm and it was apparent by the lack of a welcome pack, previous occupant's food in the fridge and duvet cover draped over the dining room table , no duvets on beds and towels on airier drying, that we were not expected. A call to the manager resulted in a profuse apology and she quickly arranged for a house made to attend. To say we were upset and very disappointed was an understatement . Be warned, the owners next door can be very noisy. They had a party on the Saturday and they were moving furniture at 1 am on the Sundeck. It was as if they were in our bedroom. The towels bed linen cutlery and crockery were excellent. There is a microwave but no suitable glassware to use, so we couldn't use it. Wifi is adequate at 10 Mbps, numerous tv channels but few English speaking.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback. We again apologize for the unexpected, unprepared condition of the unit upon arrival - a highly unusual occurrence. However, we have raised the issue with our property managers to ensure that this does not happen again. We are sorry to hear that you experienced such disruption from the unit next door. We are unable to control guest behaviour in other units but will bring this episode to the attention of the condominium board at Palmyra. I will also equip our kitchen with some extra crockery. We appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention in order for us to act upon them so that we may improve our guest experience at Casa Amelda.

Luxurious place to relax in the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

Casa Amalda is a great place to relax. This luxury condo is situated in the Palmyra gated complex inside Vila Sol (a huge golf course complex near Quarteira and Vilamoura ). We are not golfers but we enjoyed the beautiful grounds next to the house and the great infinity pool just steps from the terrace.

The house has 3 clean, up to date, bathrooms and three spacious bedrooms with very comfortable beds. The house and the grounds are just superb and have all the commodities you need.

At our arrival there was a welcome basket with wine, fruits, bread etc. This was a real plus and was greatly appreciated since we arrived late and did not know were the market was. We were somewhat surprised to have this huge welcome basket but no soap in any of the washrooms. This detailed was mentioned to the person responsible on sight and the next day the situation was resolved.

The check-in and check out was easy and went according to planned.

The only downside to this rental would be that you absolutely need a car. The complex is so huge it takes at least a 5 minute drive to get out.However, with a car you are in paradise!!

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Casa Amelda. The town house was just perfect. Modern, clean, lovely furniture and décor, comfy beds, wonderfully soft towels and bed linen, a very well equipped kitchen, gorgeous rattan sun loungers on the roof terrace, we were left wanting for nothing.

The owner was a dream to deal with, provided us with very clear information about getting to, entering and exiting the property and we were absolutely delighted with a welcome 'gift' of beautiful fresh flowers, fresh bread rolls, tea, coffee, cheese, ham, biscuits, cake, fresh fruit, tomatoes, water, wine, beers (in the fridge) and other soft drinks for the children.

Palmyra itself was lovely. Stunning gardens and pools, and very peaceful. There weren't many other families who used the pool, so we often had the pool area to ourselves, just lovely! If you're looking for a peaceful haven to relax in, Casa Amelda ticks every box. And I would urge all guests to keep the house in the immaculate state it was found in!! It's too good not to.

Thank you so much Nancy for THE perfect holiday, we absolutely loved it and will definitely return xx
