About the Owner

We live in the UK and have been married for 19 years. Have one son who is now studying towards his A' levels. We have had the good fortune to be able to enjoy many holidays, Lagos in particular. My husband and I are both from very large families so the apartment will be greatly utilised! We both enjoy many sports, my husband Golf, hence purchasing an apartment in the Algarve, whilst our son loves the water. Myself I enjoy the sun, sea, sand and sangria!!!!

Laid back in Lagos

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a fantastic eight day holiday at this super apartment in Lagos. The apartment and the complex are in a great location for easy walking access of restaurants, the marina, supermarkets, beaches, the bus and train stations, all of the old town (and more). The apartment and complex are beautifully maintained and clean and we felt very safe and secure. The main apartment faces the marina and the bay, and gets the morning sun which meant that after sunbathing down by the pool, you have somewhere in shade to relax. The barbecue is fantastic, so easy to light, very sturdy and adjustable and just right for cooking the superb fish bought fresh from the fish market which is a short walk away. We found that because of the electric shutters on the windows we were able to keep the apartment cool during the day even during the very hottest day. We hardly needed to use the air conditioning. The main bedroom has plenty of wardrobe space and hangers and a very handy safe for valuables. We didn't try the jacuzzi bath but I'm sure that would be great in cooler weather. The kitchen is well equipped but we ate out most nights so didn't use the oven. Often we've found that fridges struggle to properly keep food and drinks cool but no such problems with the very good fridge freezer in this apartment. Dishwasher, washing machine all did what they needed to do, and although we didn't use the television much it was a great size and has access to all the main UK channels. We did use the very good wifi which was very useful for catching up on social media without using expensive data roaming.

The owner and agent were very responsive to emails and our arrival at the apartment and I would have no hesitation in recommending others in making a booking.

Beautiful apartment in ideal position

  • 5 of 5

My family of 3 stayed for 11 nights in this perfectly located apartment. Lovely poolside with plenty of sun-loungers. Quiet through the night so no problem sleeping. Apartment equipped with every home comfort. Just a 10 minute walk to the restaurants in the Old Town and the Marina. Would thoroughly recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to enjoy lovely Lagos.

Excellent apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a lovely 2 week holiday at this apartment in Lagos. We had no problems when booking the apartment and the owner was very helpful and gave us a few recommendations on transfers and local restaurants. On arrival we received a very warm welcome from the owners representative, which also included a very useful welcome pack. The apartment was spotlessly clean, modern and very comfortable. It was very well equipped and the free wifi worked really well. The location was perfect being a short walk to the marina and the old town. There are also local bars and restaurants close to the apartment. There is a large supermarket about 5 minutes walk away, as well as other local shops. You could see the marina, the sea and the beach from the balcony. The pool area was spotlessly clean, with plenty of sun beds, and the grounds of the apartments were very well maintained. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to others and definitely will book again when we next go to Lagos.

We have stayed in many properties and this is definately one of the best.

It is in a good position with everything in walking distance and sits in well maintained grounds.

Inside the fixtures and fittings are a credit to the owners with everything one would need for a perfect holiday.

No hesitation in recommending this apartment.

From the Owner

I first visited Lagos some 25 years ago when I was young and single. Lagos was only a fraction of the size it is today. I fell in love with the quaint little town and marina. It was very relaxing and held a special charm. Having now been married for 19 years and having a family of our own we have visited the Algarve on numerous occaisons staying at different resorts. It it only in recent years that my husband, family and in-laws started to visit the town. They too fell in love with the area so much that my husband and I finally decided to purchase our first holiday home here. We had always planned to retire to Portugal and buy somewhere later on in life but as soon as my husband saw the apartment there was no going back. The area is so safe, friendly and holds a special magic.

From the Owner

We enjoy the benefits of not having to rush around being stressed that everyday life brings. Sitting on the balcony, sipping the odd glass of wine and starring out over the views where you can lose yourselves for the odd hour or so. The pace of life is so much more relaxing and all amenities are so close by that the apartment is like "home from home". The apartment has the use of a large shared pool which when it gets a little too hot you can indulge in or alternatively the beaches are within walking distance. On the other hand you can always stroll around the Marina and stop off for a quick earned drink before retiring back to the apartment.
