Your home under our wings
We help you with the maintenance and lease of your holiday home in the Algarve

We take care of your home

From purchase to possible renovations and rental of properties: we take care of any aspect regarding the purchase, renovations, lease and upkeep of your (future) home. With a great deal of passion and a sharp eye for detail. We’re proactive and will keep you updated on all aspects of the process. Our company takes care of several holiday homes in Loulé, Sao Brás, Quarteira, Vilamoura, Boliqueime and Albufeira.


Real estate & rental management

We’ll visit your home every week. We will air the house, check all lights and flush all toilets and sinks. Additionally, we will check your alarm system and air-conditioning every year.

Pool maintenance

Not every swimming pool is the same, that’s why for us, there isn’t a one size fits all maintenance protocol. Therefore, we use a personalised approach for each home that comes into our care. We’ll check the water parameters weekly and clean the filters and swimming pool.

Garden maintenance

Besides weekly garden maintenance, we also take great care of your flowers and plants and keep an eye on bigger pruning jobs. We’ll also help with the construction and improvement of your garden and irrigation system.


For years, we’ve been working together closely with several professionals, to help guide renovations and remodeling of the houses in our care. We manage your project and take care of all communication and any financial affairs.

Other Activities

We love to help you with any aspects of getting and keeping your home in the best shape. From the process of leasing to administrative proceedings. We are proactive, solution-oriented and forward-thinking.

Nice to meet you!

We are Don and Frederieke, from Gaivota Homes. In 2012, we moved to Portugal, and started taking care of a family member’s holiday home. We did this with a lot of pleasure and care. So much, so that nowadays we take care and own up to 20 properties in the Algarve. We manage holiday homes in and around the cities of Loulé, Quarteira, Faro, Vilamoura and Albufeira. We know the area well and are more than familiar with the Portuguese way of life. We’d love to tell you more about what exactly we do precisely, and all things concerning the letting of your (holiday)home in Portugal.
