What a fabulous property! The stunning sunrise in the morning that we shall never forget and the overall views from the balcony are absolutely fabulous.

The property itself is as described and more. The owners have thought of everything that you could possibly need during your stay. It is immaculately clean and well maintained. The added bonus of having WiFi and use of the gym facilities was fantastic.

Excellent communication with the owner, which made it easier for us, even if it was a trivial question, prompt and helpful responses make a difference when booking a holiday. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment. It has been a fabulous holiday and our stay at this property has made it all the more enjoyable. Looking forward to coming back.

A fabulous property........

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this fabulous, first floor, apartment for a fifth consecutive year. The location is great, a 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive into the old town of Lagos. Steeped in history, markets, shops and a new modern marina offer a distraction from the town's vast golden beaches. Five minutes, by car, in the other direction will find you in the beautiful, unspoilt resort of Luz with its colourful sandstone cliffs and sandy beach.

This apartment really does have it all.....truly home from home. Beautifully furnished and well equipped it also offers an opportunity to simply be based at the Boa Vista resort without the need to venture further a field. Free access to indoor and outdoor pools, a gym and spa facilities, a restaurant and a quality 18 hole golf course, all within walking distance, provide all the ingredients for a wonderful holiday, both inside and outside the main holiday season.

Beautifully furnished, well maintained apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our holiday for the second year in this beautiful,well equipped, clean apartment. From the moment we booked the correspondence with the owner was very helpful and informative. The apartment is located five minutes away from the beautiful town of Lagos which is filled with lovely restraunts, culture and amazing beaches. We visited many other beaches local to Boavista. The apartment itself is very secure, beautifully decorated with access to a family-friendly pool. The apartment also provides access to the on-site gym and fitness centre and the pool passes also give a discount on the bar and on-site restaurant. The added addition of wi-fi in the apartment this year was a bonus! We look forward to returning very soon.

This apartment has everything you could possibly want and more, it is very clean,well presented and tastefully furnished. The room has WIFI (the code is issued by the owner upon booking). Access to the indoor pool with jacuzzi is included ( passes are issued when you book in at reception, but take your own towel as they are now charging 1 Euro a towel) There is a daily maid service and towels are changed twice a week.

The booking process was excellent, straight forward and efficient with no issues. The complex is a 5 minute drive from Lagos which is well worth a visit.

A Home away from Home.

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting to this apartment at least once a year for the past 5 years. The Apartment, as the heading of the review describes, is like home away from home. It's beautifully furnished and maintained with literally everything you will ever need for your stay, including a library of books, pool toys and a windbreaker. There are glorious views of Lagos and Praia Maia (the main beach) from the balcony and just 50m from the front door is the gated pool . For your comfort there are a/c units in each room with a safe and electric shutters for extra security

The BoaVista complex is impeccably maintained, with landscapers and maintenance crews constantly working on making a fabulous first impression. And that first impression doesn't disappoint with a gorgeous spa and club house, not to mention the fabulous golf course that snakes through the complex. My favour part of my BoaVista holiday is sitting at the outdoor veranda on the 19th hole, sipping a Vinho Verde and enjoying the cool breeze coming up from the valley. Bliss

Finally, location is brilliant. Some might call it remote, but I think the location is ideal as you're a 5 minute drive from Lagos, a 5 minute drive from Luz and a 5 minute drive from Mos, all with great beaches, restaurants and bars. However, a car is essential.

If you are looking for a relaxing, hassle free holiday, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Honsa's apartment - they are lovely people to deal with and Margaret will always email you before your holiday to make sure you have all the information and directions you need and also email you after your holiday to make sure everything went smoothly. They want you to enjoy your holiday at their apartment as much as we do every year - I know I'm looking forward already to my next stay there, and we're only just back!!
