We are lucky enough to have met some amazing people who have become good friends too – many of which have kindly put reviews on Netmums and Mumsnet, please click on the links below to see more reviews.

“We LOVE Toca do Mocho!!! We have just come back from our second visit. We have one child (he was 18 months on first visit and is 4 and a half now). It is very quiet (there will only ever be one other family) so you always have plenty of space to relax and play in the pool or the playroom.

Sadie and Mick are amazing hosts and make you feel really welcome. There is a menu to choose from that Mick cooks (his cooking is fantastic) or they will babysit so you can go out to the lovely restaurants they recommend (with a taxi service there and back).

The pool area is fab with good sunloungers and toys for the pool. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained.

There is a good playroom with all the toys for indoors, pool and beach that you would need. Packing is easy as cots etc are all provided.

This is a perfect mix of self catering and B&B. Sadie and Mick are always available but are never intrusive. Toca do Mocho is a great place for exploring the Algarve and Spain. We are sure we will visit again!”

What a find!  This is the first place we’ve been that we would openly recommend to ANYBODY & EVERYBODY!  Wonderful hosts; fabulous food; great apartment and facilities and a stunning setting to boot!  The hospitality was second to none, going the extra mile in all areas.  We felt so relaxed here and it was the perfect setting for Jessie’s (6 months) first holiday.  Thank you Mick & Sadie!!  We’re getting excited about coming back already

Thanks everso much for making our stay here brilliant!  It has been an ideal location for us with a young family.  the sightseeing and ‘exploring’ has been very much appreciated and having the pool to ourselves has been a luxury!  Will definately be singing your praises in terms of food, apartment, and brilliant hospitality.  Thanks Again.

I’ve been around The Algarve, and you ain’t going to find as we say in Sheffield “Owt” to match.  Therefore all who follow enjoy the service and the area, it’s peaceful and as they say out here ‘tranquil’.  Good wishes to all.

Arrived on recommendation from previous guests NOT disappointed at all.  Apartment superb, well equipped, clean, spacious, location second to none, great views – pool fantastic.  Finally got our 3 year old in the ‘big’ pool on our last day.  Mick, Sadie & Mac perfect hosts as attentive or discrete as required.  Food superb – Sticky Ribs awesome.  One BIG THANK YOU for a completely stress free, relaxing enjoyable first family holiday alone.  Well done all.  Will definitely recommend to others.  PS – our last supper was Lamb Curry – a big tick for that.

A thousand thanks for you three (yes, Mac included) for making us 3 feel so welcome and above all for giving Martha a perfect first holiday.  As you know, we were hesitant about bringing her abroad so soon but took the plunge after reading the glowing recommendations on Netmums.  Rest assured you’ll have another one tomorrow!  Apartment, baby stuff, food and your hospitality were all perfect and you should be proud of what you’ve acheived here.  We will be back with re-inforcements!

When we found this on Netmums we thought it must be too good to be true!  I just can’t believe how fantastic this holiday has been.  Everything for our 16 month old is provided and our 10 year old wasn’t bored once!  The food is simply out of this world, from the Calzone to the amazing Roast Dinner.  Mick and Sadie are just so generous and knowledgeable and have everything provided to make this such a perfect holiday.  We loved the little train down to the beach with the borrowed beach mats & umbrellas it was the best day out!  Thank you Sadie & Mick for a fantastic holiday in every way – See you next year!

The apartment was as gorgeous as we had imagined.  Thank you for your friendly homely welcome and for always being there with help and guidance.  You have created the perfect family home from home and we look forward to our next visit.
