Spacious 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom villa with own private pool.
About Mike Taylor
We live in Dorest and bought the villa some 2 years ago. We use it for a lot in the winter months and with the family in the summer.when we are not there we rent it so other people can enjoy the area as much as we do.
Mike Taylor purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Mike Taylor chose Carvoeiro
The villa sits in between Carvoeiro with its plenty of restaurants and beach and Ferragudo which is a quiet town with shops and restaurants. I would recommend a car to explore the lovely beaches which are hidden away, most with cafetieres for that cold drink in the hot summer.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa has its own private pool and is very spacious and homely.

Our Family Holiday Carvoeiro 2019
The villa was everything we could have wished for with the exception of air conditioning but I’m sure this was reflected in the price, so cannot complain.
Great family holiday
We've just returned from a week's stay at Casa Sunrise and had a wonderful time. We were a group of 7 adults and found the villa very spacious, especially the pool area. There were always plenty of places for us all to sit/lounge in the sun or shade.
The location is good, a short walk (90 seconds) from a fabulous Italian restaurant (Luisa's) a small supermarket and just 8 minutes by taxi to Carvoeiro ( we used Uber nearly every day which was quick and easy and cost about 6Euros into Carvoeiro). You can't however walk to a beach, within 25 minutes you can get to a cliff top walk, but not down to the beach itself. During our stay we went to a wedding at Alba Suites Resort and Spa which was about 25 minutes away in the car. There's also a larger supermarket and a Lidl within a 10 minute drive.
The décor is a little dated (or traditional) and the kitchen and downstairs bathroom could do with an upgrade (in particular the shower and kitchen appliances), but this didn't really affect our stay (although the fridge is incredibly loud overnight and you can hear it from the downstairs bedrooms). The pool towels provided were very small and you only get allocated one bath towel and one hand towel per person (so no spare hand towels to have in the bathroom).
All in all, we all really enjoyed our stay, the communication with Mike was excellent, the check-in/out process went smoothly (we were allowed to arrive early and leave late) and Kevin popped in to check we were ok on our second day. We could've done with a guide book to show us how to use the appliances, where the nearest bins were and that someone would be coming to clean the pool twice a week!
If the villa is available for your holiday, do not hesitate to book.
Stayed here last year, it only gets better. We had a brilliant time in Casa Sunrise with the pool area and spacious accommodation. With the local shop and restaurants it really was a lovely holiday. We hired a car to explore the local beaches which were fabulous . 10 out of 10 all round.
We have just returned from Casa Sunrise which was just amazing. The villa is exactly as advertised and in fact better than expected. Fantastic pool/bbq area. Plenty of seating for soaking up the sun, eating and relaxing. All the rooms are spacious and well furnished. Everything available for a fantastic holiday. The only down point was the lack of towels and when the lady came to clean she only replaced 4 towels. But again this wasn't really an issue as the washing machine solved that problem. Loved the place it located well. Local shop (has everything you need and not too expensive) 2min walk from villa, a couple of bar/restaurants 3 mins walk from villa and an excellent pizza restaurant too. Aldi's an uber ride away approx €4. Urbers are the best and cheapest way to get around and they were always available. We all absolutely loved everything about our holiday and celebrating my 50th birthday in Casa Sunrise thank you.
Spacious and great location
This was our families first time in a villa and we would definitely be having another holiday in a villa!
Location was perfect. Supermarket round the corner and a excellent restaurant next door. If you want to go into town just download the uber app on your phone. A lot cheaper than taxis there.
The villa had more than enough room for us all. It was perfect but the only downfall was, the on suite bathroom downstairs needs a re vamp like the upstairs. It wasnt the cleanest and the nath held stagnant water in the middle. Also even though the pool was great and we all had fun. Our 15 month old could only stay in for 10 mins as it was too cold for him.
Apart from that we cannot fault anything else.
If you like walking you can even walk into cavoeiro town from the villa.
Thanks for the feed back Laura. Pleased you had a lovely time in the villa. We have planned to up-date the on-suite during the winter this year to match the upstairs. As far as the water in the bath, I'm looking into that with my manager.
Hope to see you again in the future,
Stayed here last year so this was our second time. Already looking at next year!!! Such a nice and quiet area with a short drive to Carvoeiro and lovely beaches to explore we all had a great time.
See you next Year.
There are two water parks within a 10 minute drive.The local beaches have frequent boat trips which explore the caves they also have trips to go dolphin watching. Or you can drive to find the numerous lovely sandy beaches which are all within a 20 minute radius of the villa.
