About our home

We are looking for a UK seaside holiday in the last 2 weeks of August of 2019 (please!) - swap or points. We have had a lot of requests from people who aren't able to offer their holiday home at this time - I'm afraid I'm unable to respond to all of these requests. We are currently searching for our UK summer beach holiday in the last 2 weeks of August.

Our amazing holiday home is perfectly equipped for a superb family holiday. There are 4 double bedrooms - a large superking bed with ensuite, twin room and then 2 large doubles with a double bed and single in each. A very well equipped kitchen with EVERYTHING you could possibly need (Granny has spent a lot of time at the house and there is even a popcorn maker!) and plenty of bottle openers!
Dishwasher, washing machine and lines to dry your washing outside - doesn't take long! And a lemon tree for those important gin and tonic lemons!
You will need a car if you are planning on leaving the house and visit one of the lovely beaches (10 mins drive to a lovely one!) - but the outdoor pool with a hard cover will keep you entertained if that isn't an option. The hard cover has been amazing for us with small children as once it is shut, you don't need to be watching it the whole time - it makes for a much for restful holiday for those with adventurous toddlers!
Photos of interior to follow - it's very comfortable!
We don't have wifi or tv, but there are loads of DVDs and a tv (not connected to an aerial though but useful for siesta DVD watching!) and you can hire a wifi dongle thing from the airport which means that you are online.
Our barbecue is a thing of beauty!
There is a cot and also a travel cot, plus 2 high chairs.
We can provide towels and bedding and can arrange for a cleaner and laundry service at the end of your stay and the cost is based on laundry weight and house grubbiness - or we can come to a mutual arrangement.
We are house swap novices! Whilst this is a holiday home, we don't let it commercially so it is full of personal touches and feels very homely. Whilst there are lots of baby bits of kit, there are a lot of stairs and they're marble / stone so something to consider (though we have been there with toddlers and been just fine!) Not really suitable for wheelchairs or people with mobility issues, though there are rails / handles on the stairs for support.
We are very near The Old Course at Vilamoura (advance booking essential) for golfers - and there are waterparks nearby if that is your thing.
We are looking for house swaps during school holidays and are also interested in long weekend City Breaks - we are open to suggestions from those interested in swapping anywhere!

Family - 3 children (7-14) , keen on water sports, UK beach holidays please!
