Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Jacqui,

Just a quick line to how much we enjoyed staying at your apartment in Lagos, which we thought was excellent and could not of wanted for more as everything that we needed was there. The location was ideal and liked being able to wander down to the Marina and Town in the evenings. We all had a lovely time and Rue looked after us on our arrival and whilst we were there.

Thanks again for helping to make a holiday to remember.

Best Wishes

Great apartment and good location.

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here. Carlos was very helpful getting us settled in at the apartment. Communication with the owner was top notch. Jacqui responded to all my emails and questions quickly and accurately. The apartment itself is exactly as shown. Very comfortable for the beds, couch and all amenities. We felt like it was home. Extra special was the Christmas tree and decorations as we arrived 2 days before Christmas and were there for the holiday. Can't find any fault in staying here as it was large and spacious, very quiet and comfortable, excellent coffee shop across the street, and having a supermarket across also was very convenient. Takes about 10-15 minute walk to the marina and the old town square, but it was a comfortable walk and helped to walk off all the delicious food we ate.

Kitchen was well equipped. Showers were always hot. The pool is very nice, but we were so busy, we didn't get a chance to use it. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, large and comfortable place for holiday.

Excellent luxury apartment a short walk from the Marina and Old Town

  • 5 of 5

Booked the apartment for two weeks in August 2017 with my wife and three daughters. It's located in a luxury block a few minutes from the main promenade into Lagos Town Centre and Marina by foot. The apartment couldn't have been better with three large bedrooms (all air con; important when the day temp is 35 degrees) and a marvellous living area (air con) with satellite and catch up TV as well as Wifi. There is an excellent kitchen which has a washing machine for your towels and clothes as well as two large sun terraces.

The Lidl across the road is great for stocking up on water and essentials for the apartment. The indoor swimming pool and gym were good and the only minor gripe was the jacuzzi was out of order during our stay. However, we spent most of our time at the beach and in the old town so it wasn't really an issue. Lagos is marvellous (quite windy) and very good for families. We'd recommend Borsalino, an Italian restaurant a few minutes from the apartment for lovely food but we ate in many Lagos restaurants and were very happy. Great apartment and great resort.

Lovely spacious apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is really lovely, very spacious and just as the photos. The building is nice and all the communal areas are clean and tidy. There is a communal garage accessed via an electric door so safe area for the hire car. Carlos met us on arrival and showed us around, he was very helpful. We only contacted him once while we stayed but he answered quickly and returned my call as promised. The pool and gym area were deserted so we had it all to ourselves. It was spotlessly clean but the showers in the changing area didn't have shower heads so there was just one by the pool and one by the steam room. Adequate if it's just a few of you. The area is very residential so surrounded by lots of other similar buildings, Lidl is literally across the road. It's quite a walk to the beach and the loungers and parasols are 12 euro for 2, a bit pricey I thought, so we bought our own parasols and left them in the apartment so hopefully they will be there for others to use. Beach towels are provided, just wash them through in the machine and hang them out before you leave. There is no denying the beaches along this coast are beautiful. The old town is full of life, street music, acrobats and much more. You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants, most of whom have tables and chairs in the street.

A couple of things to note. There is no welcome pack, which was a shame because we'd had a long journey and just a drink would have been nice. Lidl is close by but going shopping at 10.30pm wasn't the first thing on my list! A word of warning, the floors in the apartment are beautiful but lethal, one of our party stepped out of the bath onto the bathmat which slipped away like a hover board and she fell. She was badly bruised and shaken but thankfully nothing broken.

We enjoyed our stay very much, walked miles, but that wont do us any harm!

Owner's Response: Hello Miriam Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our apartment. We are delighted that you had a good holiday and enjoyed Lagos which is indeed beautiful with lots of things to do and see. We do hope your friend is okay after the fall you have described; we were disappointed to hear about this; thank goodness nothing was broken as you say. I had a fall 2 years ago on perfectly good level ground and broke my ankle so know the trauma that a fall can have. All our bathroom floors have anti slip tiles and indeed with the use of a bathmat this should not have happened. We have had guests for nearly 10 years now and this is the first incident. We were sorry to hear this. With regard to the welcome pack, yes, we do provide this but there is a small charge for same, we certainly would have obliged your group with milk, tea, coffee should you have mentioned this beforehand; there is nearly always a supply of dry goods in the kitchen. Thank you again for your review and we do hope we can welcome you back to 'Nora' sometime in the future. Enjoy the rest of the english summer and thank you for choosing our apartment. Jacqui

Wonderful Lagos apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five really enjoyed this lovely apartment. It had plenty of room for all of us, and a nice sized kitchen to fix a few meals in as well. The beds were very comfortable and it was nice to have some outdoor seating. The only drawback's were that we were unable to get the Jacuzzi to heat up and the apartment was advertised as having a washer and dryer, but there was no dryer. Having a dryer was a great perk for us since we were in Portugal for a month and needed to do our own laundry. Air drying worked, but was tedious considering we had five people and a lot of laundry. It's not enough to take off any stars, but I would recommend removing the advertisement of a clothing dryer from the listing. All in all, it was a wonderful stay! I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone thinking of visiting Lagos .

Owner's Response: Hello Paula thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. I was not aware that we had ticked 'tumble dryer' facility on our advertisement and have since removed it. We apologise for any inconvenience. We always feel there is adequate drying outside on the clothes line and prefer to use this method ourselves, avoiding further electricity charges. . Guests do need to switch the jacuzzi on for some time before it comes up to the preferred heat. Thank you again for renting and perhaps we can welcome you back one day in the future. Best Regards Jacqui
