Air conditioned Villa, AL Nº 46/2009/16995, Private Pool,Terraces,Mature Garden

Overview

Property

Updated: 18-Jul-2016
Villa near Lagos, 2 floors, Super views towards the sea, large sunny pool terraces, BBQ area, BBC TV and internet.

This atractive and popular villa Casa Vista Linda is situated in an elevated position behind the lovely long sandy Meia Praia beach near Lagos. It is about a 5-minute drive to the beach or the town. The Lagos Marina with lots of cafés and restaurants is at the end of the lane, about a 15 minutes walk, and a further 5 minutes will take you across the pedestrian bridge over the river to the main Lagos esplanade. This walk is not suitable for pushchairs or the very young. The nearest golf course, the re-designed Onyria/ Palmares course, is perhaps a 10 minute drive; Boa Vista is just the other side of Lagos town and a further 2 courses, tennis courts and riding stables are all within 30 minutes by car. The villa is spacious and airy and has been furnished and equipped to a good standard. The half acre of garden is large, mature and well tended.

Just to say we had a wonderful holiday at the villa and thank you for your assistance. Robson family 31 July to 14 August 2014.



Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a huge thank you once again from the Peel family with regards to our stay at Vista Linda 30 June to 14 July 2011. We had a fabulous two weeks in Lagos and were most impressed with both the standard of the villa and the professional personal service supplied by Rosemary Reynolds. We would not hesitate to recommend you to others in the future.



Just a quick note to thank you Rosemary and your daughter Nicola for a wonderful Holiday.The villa was wonderful and your assistance in arranging Taxis etc helped to a memorable vacation. Once again Thanks - family stayed 13 to 20 August 2009

A lovely, spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

We booked Casa Vista Linda at the last minute for just the two of us. The directions from Rosemary to get us from the airport to the villa in our hire car were great. Although the hire car was useful and it meant we could go a bit further afield, I don't really think you 'absolutely need' a car to stay here. It's a 15 min walk to the marina (although the roads are quite bumpy and not lit at night) and there are plenty of cheap taxis to bring you back in the evening. There is a small shop about 10 mins walk away and a Pingo Doce supermarket a further 5/10 mins, where you could always get a taxi back up the hill with your shopping.

The villa itself looks fabulous from the outside; in its own grounds with a huge pool and gardens. It had a lockable exterior gate and roll-down shutters on most of the windows, both for security and to keep the house cool during the day. The pool and patio areas are very large and not overlooked by neighbouring villas. The pool doesn't have heating but in early September it had all summer to warm up and was quite nice. There is plenty of outdoor seating and patio loungers. The view from the master bedroom balcony is stunning - looking out over Lagos and the rocks on the beach in the distance.

The bed in the master suite was comfortable and there were lots of hangers provided in the wardrobes. The maids came twice during our stay of 9 nights, and although we got towel changes, the bedsheets were not changed but this wasn't a big deal.

For those who like to cook at home, the kitchen was amply provided for in terms of crockery, glasses, pots and pans etc. The oven and built-in microwave looked new and we had no problem with the oven temp (perhaps it has been replaced since the last reviewer commented).

The large TV in the living room could receive English (non-Sky) channels and the internet worked perfectly throughout our stay.

Are there any downsides? Not really. If I were lucky enough to be buying this property for myself, I would probably update the bathrooms and the kitchen units (all functional but a wee bit dated), and have heating in the pool but would I recommend it as a holiday rental - yes, definitely!

Superb Location and stunning views

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time at Casa Vista Linda and it did not disappoint from the description on line. It was very well appointed and the maid Ana kept everything very clean and tidy.

The views from the property were amazing overlooking Lagos and the sea. Although there were other villas next door it was very private, secluded and quiet with great birdlife.

The pool was lovely but cold even with the pool cover on when not in use - you couldn't stay in very long - it could do with heating, especially in low seasons - not sure how it will be in high season.

The bedrooms were large and well furnished but the bathrooms could do with a bit of updating, although perfectly useable. The kitchen was very spacious and well equipped although we did have some problems with the oven keeping it a regular temperature, so couldn't use it for cooking. The lounge and dining room was very spacious and the TV had all UK channels and Wifi, albeit a bit intermittent but something that you get used to apparently in Portugal.

The main terrace was huge running along the back of the property with lots of room for sunbathing and eating outside and the views of Lagos and the sea were stunning. This definitely sold the villa to us - superb.

Many thanks to Rosemary and Nicola from the management company who were very helpful as usual with any problems we had.

The villa is located uphill from Lagos so a car is a necessity. Very close to the local supermarket and shops in Lagos with a large free car park at the back of the marina to access the town centre.

As we like to eat in most of the time and cook ourselves we found the food shop and wine a lot cheaper than in the UK. We ate out a few times at our favourite restaurant in Lagos Veneza, getting a taxi each way which was very cheap.

As we have been to Lagos many times before we relaxed at the villa more this year but worth a trip out to the Monchice hills, Loule and surrounding areas - beautiful and stunning countryside.

We would high recommend this villa and will definitely be going back again.

Booking Notes:
A deposit of 25% is required to confirm a booking. The rent balance is then due 8 weeks before the start of your holiday. There is a damage deposit of £300 to be paid on arrival.

Changeover Day:
We prefer the change over day on a Thursday but this maybe relaxed in low seasons.

The above rents are for 5-6 people but there are reduced rents for fewer people except in the high/peak seasons. Also there are reductions for late bookings and lets of 3 weeks or more. Please apply.
The owners use this villa in the winter so it is not rented from early November to the end of March every year.
