House/Apartments to Rent in Carvoeiro, Algarve
Who We Are
Daniella (Dani) and Douglas (Doug) have retired and now live on the beautiful Portuguese coastline. They own 3 rental properties in Carvoeiro: Quintal da Oliveira (Courtyard of the Olive Tree) and Vida de Praia (Beach Life) - NEW: Jardim à Vista, a new rental property in the stunning city of Porto!!! Together they have traveled widely (Doug worked for a major airline company) and have lived in the UK, France, Brazil, Canada, Germany, and the USA. Daniella is a qualified chef and barista who owned/ran her own Café business in Colorado, USA, and speaks Portuguese (Brazil), German, English, and French (as well as some Italian and Spanish). Doug is Irish, and Daniella is Brazilian.
Whilst living in Colorado, they visited Carvoeiro several years ago (almost by accident while exploring the coast by car) and immediately fell in love with the little coastal village. It took a few more years before they purchased Quintal and Vida. Both of the properties are unique and decorated with attention to detail and fully equipped to be your home away from home.
Porto came around a bit later, in 2023. Life is all about balance, and Porto offers a rich and vibrant city experience, and being in the heart of the city, the Jardim à Vista studio apartment is a total oasis; even the huge garden in the city (hence the name) is special.
"Having traveled so much and stayed in many, many different places, we quickly learned that a pretty picture of an apartment does not always mean it is a great place for a week or two of holiday. We pride ourselves (through experience) in fitting out our rentals with everything you could ever need (and then some!) to make your stay comfortable, enjoyable, and hassle-free. It is the little things that can make all the difference, especially for those with families. We actually live in each of the properties for a while during the off-season, so we can actually see first-hand what needs improvement to make it a "home," not just a "vacation rental".
"We also work closely with Elite Management in Carvoeiro, who are located close to all the properties and look after our guests from the time they arrive to the time they leave. Kate and all the team in the office are mega helpful, and everyone is super friendly. From the time you pick up your keys to the day you leave, you are in good hands."
In Porto, we work with Nomad's agency, who make sure all our guests are well received and super helpful from the get-go.
"Your vacation time is really important to recharge the batteries, so we suggest you find out all you can beforehand, make the right decision, and book with confidence. Carvoeiro is a wonderful place, so we hope you can come to visit us - you won't regret it."

Our Clients Testimonials
This was a 5 star stay at Quintal. The house itself is compact but gorgeous. It is furnished and decorated to a very high level. All the appliances are from the best brands. They thought of everything. Every little detail has been thought through. Comfortable beds, best linen, fully equipped kitchen, wonderful shower. I could go on and on but you get the picture. The location is perfect. There is parking just in front of the house. It is a short walk to the beach. The town itself is very picturesque. The walks along the cliffs outstanding. An excellent bakery 2 minutes walk opens at 7am for fresh bread and Portuguese pastries. Supermarkets a few minutes drive. Also many good restaurants in the town with fair prices. Carvoeiro is located in the middle of the Algarve so every place of interest is within a 60 minutes drive. We visited the whole Algarve from one side to the other. We also had the pleasure of meeting Doug and Daniella who are lovely people. Sean from Brazil, July 2020
We had a great time in Carvoeiros, we had a car and travelled around but Carvoeiros was by far the best beach, best people and very fun for families. The house was very cute with personal touches everywhere. So much love put in it. We loved the space, very clean and comfortable beds, shower was great too and place immaculate clean. Thanks Mena for looking after us, we hope to come back again!
