About Steve Crawley

My wife and I live in the South of England and we enjoy visiting our property in Boavista as often as possible, often having family and friends join us for part of our stays. We really love the immaculately kept Boavista Resort, the local area, the golf, the incredible range of restaurants and of course the year long lovely weather there! We have not regretted our purchase at Boavista for one single second, and are always looking forward to our next trip back!

Steve Crawley purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Steve Crawley chose Lagos

This part of the Algarve is still quite unspoilt, and everything is certainly better value for money at this end of the Algarve. From golf prices to eating out, everything is far more reasonably priced, whilst the quality of everything is still present.

What makes this apartment unique

We absolutely love our property at Boavista - we have our own secure area within the integral garage where we can keep items there to save on luggage each time we travel, the double aspect garden space in our particular apartment is much larger than the average plot and it is south facing so we have sun all day. As a very recent build, the apartment is Boavista's latest design, which we much prefer over the older style apartment layouts at the Resort. Although we have full golf views front and back, we are not in any 'firing line' for stray golf balls, which we wouldn't like. We feel our location, plot, and design is 'just perfect'!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic two weeks at Boavista, the resort was beautiful and had all the facilities we needed and more. The children loved making friends around the pool and the club house provided a really varied menu, as well as a variety of theme nights, eg bbq night with music. The apartment was immaculate, show home standard with above and beyond the amenities needed and very importantly very comfy beds. There was an immaculately tendered and private garden where we enjoyed bbqs. Out of 10 we would give this holiday a definite 10.

Mr & Mrs McKirgan of Hertfordshire, England. August 2013

We were very impressed with the Boavista resort and its accessibility to Lagos and Luz. You are lucky to own such a nice property in a beautiful part of the world. We hope we will be able to visit again in the near future.

Magnificent Apartment & Resort !!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic 12 night stay here in May. The apartment is well appointed all round, as described, with a spacious modern open plan kitchen / dining / lounge area. This particular apartment benefits from a large immaculately maintained garden area to the front & side, which receives full sun from early morning & into the evening ...ideal for early morning breakfasts or evening teas on the patio. Facilities within the resort were excellent & included unlimited free use of the 'Essential Fitness & Spa' and use of the communal outdoor pool which was spotless. The golf course itself is very well maintained & provides a challenge for all levels of player ...it provides some fantastic views towards the Bay Of Lagos, Luz, & the Monchique mountains. There are numerous other courses nearby, notably Palmares which is a must play if you are a golfer. All the resort staff were very welcoming, pleasant & friendly. The resort provided an excellent base from which to explore the unspoilt Western Algarve area, & also heading further north along the west coast towards the Alantejo Region, where we found the fantastic beaches of Amado & Bordeira. ...The cliff top drive between these two beaches, with it's various stop off viewing points, was amazing ! An information pack, compiled by the owners, was provided in the apartment which proved useful in highlighting places to visit & favourite places to dine.

I would certainly recommend that if you are thinking of a family holiday, a golfing holiday, or simply intend exploring the magnificent landscape of the Western Algarve, then this is the place to stay ! ...5 Star !!!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this two bedroomed apartment. It was very modern and tastefully decorated. It is open plan and has a lovely feel to it. The apartment is on a corner plot with a large garden and located opposite the lovely communal pool. The property also benefits from having a garage which is a must in the hot weather.

The owner is a pleasure to deal with and nothing is too much trouble.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property. It is of a very, very high standard.

simply fantastic.

we have been a few days of August in this apartment and we have been fully satisfied. It has the best qualities and is in an area close to the Porto Moss beach, with restaurants of very good quality. With well maintained common areas and with all the details you need.

We will definitely return.
