About Geraldine McCauley

My wife and I originally bought a boat in Lagos Portugal.

We purchased the boat 12 years ago, we planned to travel round the Med. All these plans changed when we left Lagos we just seemed to want to get back to Lagos. After holidaying here up to 10 times a year we decided to sell the boat and buy an apartment 7 years ago. We decided to buy another studio on the 6th floor, of the same building that we now live in. We now have many friends down here who all speak to us and are very friendly, also to guests who have stayed here. Since moving to Lagos, I am now doing airport transfers as back in England I had 20 years experience running my own taxi business. I also rent out mobility scooters. My wife helps with management of properties. We know the area quite well, any queries please just ask

Geraldine McCauley purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Geraldine McCauley chose Ameijeira

The most breathtaking view of Lagos Bay and Monchique mountains. Guests have said "No photos can do this view justice". The property has just been fully renovated,new kitchen,shower room,new floors.

What makes this apartment unique

There are some very good restaurants within 5 minutes walk which offer excellent food at reasonable prices.

More restaurants available in town 10 minutes walk with stunning view across the ocean. Beaches are within 5 to 10 minutes walk, from small cove beaches to larger beaches with some water sports.The marina has many trips from fishing to grotto trips and dolphin watching. Bus stop outside apartment building runs a circular trip round town and more beaches. A good mix of historic places to visit along with the new. Four good golf courses within 15 minute drive, nearest one 5 minutes.

Amazing flat with incredible views!

My husband and I absolutely loved staying here. It's in a great location within close proximity to beautiful beaches, great restaurants and bars. It was our first time to Lagos and we fell in love with city! This place made our holiday perfect. When we go back we definitely want to stay here again.

Nice place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Studio apartment on the 6th floor of a block. Compact but very well laid out. Shower area modern and well done quite recently. Adequate kitchen area which is probably just about the best equipped small apartment kitchen we have ever had. Really nice to have some cleaning stuff and some salt/pepper, tea bags, coffee etc. left in the apartment which we replaced. Comfortable twin beds. The small balcony really does enhance the pleasure of the stay, wonderful views over the town of Lagos and also the sea. Would definitely like to return.

Very Special Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

We returned to stay in this apartment for the 3rd time last week and it is now where we can say we got engaged in. On the only rainy day of the week I recieved a proposal after some sangria : ) We love staying in this awesome studio with the most amazing view you could ever imagine waking up to and it is in a perfect location to amazing beaches and main town all in walking distance. We love it and maybe next time we stay will be our honeymoon : ) It is owned by a great funny and very kind generous couple. The low cost has meant that we have been able to afford holidays when finance has been tight for us...money couldn't pay for the view from the balconey..
