Guestbook comments from the owner

Left on Jun 1, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Our 5th time to this wonderful apartment - such a lovely place (only 9 apartments in the very secure block) and has everything you need, totally home from home. The owners (Sam & Shaun) can't do enough for you to ensure you have a wonderful time. It's in a fab location just opposite a lovely beach, beach bars and just down the road from Lagos (5mins in the car or around 30mins walk by beach or road (note there's a few beach bars on the way which are fun to stop at). We hire a car as we're always on the look out for surf, so travel down to Sagres stopping off at many of the lovely beaches along the way. But if you don't have a car, there's a train station opposite or a bus stop which are very easy to use (very handy and used many times when feeling lazy in the evenings and want an evening in Lagos!!). The only negative is that we don't own it and had to come home, but already looking forward to next year.
