Lagos Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment at the start of September 2017 and found it lived up to the description and previous reviews.

The correspondence with the owner was good and there was someone to greet you and show you all the apartment details.

The apartment is well appointed and has everything you will need. We found it to be well located for a easy walk into the old town. Having a supermarket opposite was also handy.

I would happily stay here again and recommend it both for couples and families.

Wonderful Lagos apartment

  • 5 of 5

This large and well-appointed apartment in Lagos is centrally located and provides easy access to the Lagos Old Town as well as its wonderful and diverse beaches. The host, Michael Carroll, was flexible, responsive and wonderful to work with. The rental experience was a pleasure from start to finish, and our family loved Lagos and its environs.

Fantastic first class holiday accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family holiday for six adults in Lagos. The apartment is extremely spacious, clean and well equipped in a peaceful residential area. The sun terrace is very relaxing at all times of the day. The property is close to all local amenities and a few minutes walk to the harbour and historic old town, where there are restaurants galore to choose from. The Lidl supermarket offers a wide range of foods and is conveniently located across the road, making self catering very easy to manage.

My only negative comment is that the leisure facilites for the apartment block need to be better maintained as neither the jacuzzi or sauna were working throughout our stay.

However, the property is excellent value for money and I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for high quality self catering accomodation in The Algarve.

Fantastic apartment! Within walking distant to marina, town, bus terminal. Rooftop deck and patio next to living room and kitchen were our favorite spots! Kitchen is fully equipped. Supermarket across the street and great Italian restaurant Borsalino's is right around the corner.

High quality apartment in town centre

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as described and convenient for a short New Year stay. I can imagine roof terrace is very pleasant in the warmer months. Indoor pool and leisure facilities good. Obviously a private apartment block and very quiet which suited is. Organisation from owner and his agent very efficient. All furniture/beds high quality etc. Lidl across the road also very useful.

Amazing apartment

You'll not find a better apartment for the price in Lagos. Plenty of room for 6 adults. Fantastic roof terrace for chilling. Fully equipped kitchen. Gym, sauna, swimming pool downstairs, supermarket across the road and only a couple of minutes walk to the marina and town. Who could want for any more? Don't delay, book today!!!

About Michael Carroll

We are a married couple, Michael is a lawyer (barrister) and Marie recently disposed of her own retail business. Our apartment will someday be our residence for some of the colder months at home and with this specifically in mind we purchased it - new - in 2007. We have three grown up children, Ronan is a harbour pilot, Eoin a sociologist who is director of a centre promoting social justice and Cian is a lawyer practising in Paris.

Michael Carroll purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Michael Carroll chose Lagos Centre

We wanted the apartment to be in a location that has its own community and history, with stunning scenery and plenty to do, that has a pleasant climate, that has within walking distance all the services and shops that are available to us at home and that is close to an airport a short flight away from our other home. At the same time we wanted the apartment to be totally private and in a quiet part of Lagos.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is less than an hour from the major international airport in the Algarve region, it is situated in a residential area and so avoids the excesses of tourism, yet it is a short walk from the main beach, the marina and the historic old town. It is a large home, totally private, a penthouse with internal staircase access to its own rooftop sun terrace that is almost as big as the apartment and is not overlooked. Our guests keep telling us that the photos don't do it justice. So we are perfectly happy to stay in the apartment, and we can walk to any of the local attractions and shops. Lagos is an ideal base for the Algarve generally, everything is within driving distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed staying at the apartment

1 Nov2014

The flat was terrific.... and we had an extremely nice time

1 Nov2014

Thanks once again for allowing us to make use of your apartment. Great week with great weather no doubt we will be back for at least September.

3 Oct2014

Many thanks for the use of your apartment. It ticked every box for us as a group of golfers. We enjoyed a relaxing week close to all the action of Lagos and the courses of Boavista and Palmares. Will be in touch when we next arrange to golf near Lagos


We just wanted to email our thanks for letting us rent your beautiful apartment for the past two weeks. It is by far the best apartment we have booked through the Owner's Direct website and is so well equipped. The sun terrace was a fantastic bonus as was the pool (though we didn't quite ever work out how to heat the jacuzzi!). We also loved the area, ... managed to enjoy some windsurfing despite the rather chilly Atlantic.

We and our two children hope to book again next August if it's possible.

24 Aug 2014

Many thanks for the use of the apartment ....... had a terrific holiday and as before the quality of the apartment made it so relaxing and private. The week went so quickly, we'll have to consider staying longer or even off season in the future but we'll want to return sometime in the future.....


Hi Michael, just a few words to say many thanks for letting us use your lovely apartment in Lagos, we had a fabulous time and the accommodation was exactly as we had hoped.

1 Aug 2014

So we got here no problem , very excited would be a slight understatement !! Carlos was so helpful. We dropped bags and went and got a bite to eat..... I cannot believe the value for money, we had a delicious meal and plenty of wine for a lot less than you would get at home........

Your home here is lovely and I really look forward to seeing more of Lagos tomorrow

22June 2014

You have a lovely spacious apartment we were all very comfortable there.

We will be returning to Lagos in the future and will definitely contact you first to see if the apartment is available 22May 2014

Your apartment is beautiful and my mother is now enjoying her final week there. Carlos is a lovely man and nothing is too much trouble...I hope we will be booking again soon 28Apr 2014

We had a great time and Carlos was a great help. Hopefully you will allow us to return 14Apr 2014

Your apt is fabulous, everything you could possibly need is provided. Loved the roof terrace... We will definitely be recommending your apt to all our friends and family... 26Mar 2014

We had a lovely stay in your wonderful apartment & if I come back to Lagos would have no hesitation in booking it again 17Jul 2013

Well you are lucky you got your apartment back the ladies loved it so much I was fearful they would take to squatting in it! They loved the area, the location, everything 26Jun 2013
