Very good value for money, clean & spacious

  • 4 of 5

Brilliant communication with David before our trip & he gave me all the information needed to get straight to the apartment. Bela met us & handed the keys over promptly to us after explaining a little about the apartment. The apartment is very spacious & gave us plenty of room. There was everything we needed with regards to utensils and cooking facilities. The balconies at the rear of the apartment are lovely sun traps & the view is great.

Upon arrival there was even a bottle of beer & wine in the fridge & soft drinks for the kids, which after a long drive down from Lisbon was brilliant! If you drive, parking outside is sporadic and first come first served, but I managed fine. The nearest Supermarche is less than 5 minutes drive or 15 min walk, so no problem. It's easy to walk into town, where there is everything you need to eat & drink out. The beach is about 15 min walk as well, so not awful & even the walk to Ponta de Piedade only takes around 25 min & it's well worth it!

The only niggles are that its on the 3rd floor, so not that easy to carry case up the stairs & there is no lift; however all was managed. Also, it can be noisy early in the morning as its a residential area with lots of traffic noise & from the bin lorries especially.

Apart from that though, very good value for money, clean & spacious, lovely owner to deal with & thanks very much. Hope to come back again.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My partner & I stayed in the apartment for 1 week at the beginning of June . It was spacious, comfortable & clean & perfectly situated for walking into Lagos. The beautiful beaches are all within walking reach & we did a wonderful walk along the cliffs to the viewpoint & further on to Praia de Luz, taking a bus back. Lagos is a lovely town with lots of bars, cafes & restaurants to hang out in & the fish market is brilliant. We made use of David's barbeque on the balcony. We particularly enjoyed sitting at the rooftop bar above the market to catch the evening sunshine & enjoy the view of the harbour & out to sea.

Thanks to David for providing us with lots of information about the area & ensuring we had what we needed. I would recommend the apartment & the area for a holiday.

A Thoroughly Relaxing Week In Lagos

  • 4 of 5

My fiancée and I spent a lovely week at this spacious, clean and well-placed apartment, which offers splendid views of the beach from the balcony dining table. The apartment is comfortable and has all amenities we required, plus more: the washing machine and clothes line care in very handy indeed! With the town just a short stroll away, we were able to enjoy all Lagos has to offer with ease, with no need for taxis home. We'll certainly return to stay at this apartment in the future! Thank you!

Lovely Lagos

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I spent two lovely weeks in the apartment. It is spacious, clean, and has all you need to have a wonderful time in this city. The location is fantastic, almost touching the Old Town walls, which makes locating yourself a piece of cake. The apartment is surrounded by some fantastic restaurants, (my favourite, Bom Apetite – shameless plug). The beaches are well within walking distance and safe. There is ample choice of supermarkets to get all you need for your stay, all within walking distance. David was very helpful from initial contact right through to holiday time and beyond. The price of this let may have some people thinking that there might be something wrong with the flat, but I can assure those people that there is not, this is just a really good deal and should be snapped up immediately! Happy holidays and good health to all who stay here.

Sunny Lagos

  • 5 of 5

Having been to this flat for 6 years in a row originally as a boys holiday and ending up as a returning venue for my fiancé and I. This flat has spectacular views stretching across the Algarvian peninsula, the kitchen is well equipped for my particular exploration of cooking the culinary delicacies of the local fish market. A must visit venue for everone. The flat is extremely spacious, well designed and light, also being on the top floor it is quiet and cool in the summer heat. We have friends in Lagos so two bedrooms always helps if guests wish to stay after a BBQ on the spacious balcony over looking Lagos at night. A must stay place for any people visiting Lagos either for the first time or returning adventurers.

Lovely Lagos

  • 3 of 5

Myself and two girlfriends wanted a relaxing week in Lagos close to the centre and all the bars and restaurants and David's apartment certainly catered for this. The apt is v spacious and comfortable and really well equipped. We really had everything we wanted. David was very helpful before and after our trip and he gave us some great tips and pointers. The centre of lagos is very close as is the beach. Lagos itself is a great spot and the food and value for money is excellent. The temp drops quite quickly at night so we could open the doors of the apt at night but air con during the day would have be brilliant. That and a lift would have upped this to 4 stars but I definitely would return and stay here again. Also Bela was great and the apt was spotless! Thanks David.
