We had a problem with the shower head in the downstairs bathroom, this was fixed the very same day.  There was also a problem with the upstairs shower - the floor leaked onto through the roof onto the patio's floor.  After many attempts to fix this problem it was still leaking - hope the owner can sort this out as this was a real concern.  The gas braai on the patio is very rusted, not all gas "pipes" are working properly.

It was an awesome holiday, all we can comment negatively is that the unit (No 2) needs some tlc, plumbing very poor, showers don’t drain well, but that’s actually all I can say bad, rest was great! Thanks for a great holiday!! Location location location!

It was fantastic and I must thank you for suggesting Farol da Barra when I enquired about accommodation. It was safe for the kids and we all really enjoyed it. It was difficult to pack up and leave.

Had had a great stay thank you - just think they need a big frying pan and a microwave would help. Maybe the owners should also get together and discuss a back up generator for busy December period. Otherwise we had an awesome holiday.

Thank you very much, we had a wonderful stay at Farol Da Barra

We had a great stay, only the power was troublesome but we were surprised to have power in the first place. The gentlemen cleaning our house every day was probably the highlight, friendly every time even do we were quite messy. The accommodation itself is very good, I hope the owner gets his wave protection measures sorted ;) overall a great place to visit and was an awesome stay.

Bennie and Domingo were fantastic. Only small criticism is that the units are very close to each other and you lose some privacy.
