Since October 2018, I am the property manager of my sister's apartment "Bem-vindo", located on the 1st floor of an apartment building, in a quiet residential area in Tavira, overlooking this beautiful little city.
Update February 2019: The Maria Nova Lounge hotel next to the apartment is currently undergoing a renovation. The prognosis is that the work will be completed in early April 2019. The builders work from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday to Friday, so there may be some noise.
The main entrance of this block gives access to four residential units: two on the ground floor - separated from each other by the central staircase - and two on the first floor. Both apartments on the first floor (one of them my sister's "Bem-vindo") have their own roof terrace, accessible through an easily accessible stone staircase.
When you enter "Bem-vindo", the spacious hall will immediately invite you. There is sufficient space for jackets, shoes, luggage trolleys and so on. From this central area you have access to all rooms: on your left you can enter the living room through french doors, right in front of is the entrance to the kitchen and on the right you'll find respectively the bedroom, the bathroom and the separate toilet.
The living room is equipped with a small and a large sofa, an eating bar (half in the living room, half in the open kitchen) and a high breakfast table near the window. In the bookcase you will find several reading books and the TV has more than 100 channels. Furthermore, "Bem-vindo" has fiber internet!
The large, open kitchen is fully equipped. You will find plenty of pots, pans, lots of crockery and glassware, but also an ever-changing stock in kitchen cupboards (such as spices, pasta, rice, coffee, etc.), for everyone's use, and supplemented by each tenant of one's own choice!
The spacious bedroom has a double bed, double duvet (with plaid and/or spare duvet in the wardrobe cooler nights), bedside tables and fixed wardrobes.
The bathroom has been completely renovated in 2018 and is equipped with a spacious shower and sink. The toilet is next to this bathroom, in a separate room.
"Bem-vindo" has two air conditioning units: one in the living room and one in the bedroom.
The apartment "Bem-vindo" is located right aside the renovated hotel Maria Nova, and it really only takes 5 minutes to walk down to the city centre!
