About Rik Harkness

I live in the north east England and have been going to the Algarve with my family for many years.

We always wanted to buy an apartment there but until we visited Lagos and enjoyed it so much we were hooked.

We are a well traveled family that has discovered many parts of the world. Many years ago we discovered the Algarve the only thing i can say is why not sooner.

After spending 7 years in the South of France we thought we had seen it all sadly we had to leave France only to discover the Algarve, and what a find with its abundance of sandy beaches forever going caves & coast lines not to mention excellent value for money restaurants, & shops.

Rik Harkness purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Rik Harkness chose Lagos

We are a well traveled family that has discovered many parts of the world.

Many years ago we discovered the Algarve the only thing i can say is why not sooner.

After spending 7 years in the South of France we thought we had seen it all.

Then we found the Algarve. With the apartment being on the top floor with all day sunshine four patio doors that follow onto it, air con, a surround system in each room, so you can all enjoy your own taste of music, the beautiful shared pool with its well landscaped gardens & palm trees.

As well as the video entrance system including pin code to access the property & its own dedicated car parking space if required.

As its location is quiet but at the same time 10 mins walk to the Marina restaurants, beaches, markets & shops. water parks, golf,etc.

What makes this apartment unique

Being on the top floor of any apartment block is a must endless sunshine or you can always go in the shade if you need to, or just take the lift down to the swimming pool.

Or if thats not what you want to do take a walk down to the Marina (10 mins or so longer if you stop at one of the

snack bars on the way down the one opposite Lidls is cheap good & plentiful.

Pass here & you arrive at the Port/Marina where they are endless cruises, water sports, boat fishing, bbq boat lunches, exploring caves by boat, seeing the dolphins, the list is endless.

Opposite the Marina heading towards the beautiful historical town of Lagos with its many restaurants, museums, & very welcoming, friendly atmosphere, the local people love to make you feel at home nothing seems to be a problem for them.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have visited Lagos on four separate occasions and found this apartment to be exactly as described. We had a fantastic time the apartment was of a very high standard. We are already looking at booking the apartment again soon, fantastic value for money, would highly recommend, very easy dealing with the owner (Mr Harkness) as he was very helpful with dealing with any queries we had.

I have travelled all over Europe with my wife and children and have have experienced the Algarve to be child friendly and great for adults aswell. The apartment is outstanding especially with been on the top floor, having young children the child facilities not just the cot and high chair that is normally supplied the owner has even supplied child friendly cups, plates, etc.

We would highly recommend as nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

We're just back from a wonderful holiday in Lagos.

Rik's apartment is HUGE & so well equipped, clean & modern. The balcony was great - lots of space. Wi-Fi was excellent the whole time & a bonus to have Sky TV. Rik was brilliant to deal with from the minute I enquired about his apartment - always very helpful with very quick responses to any queries. Steve from the agency in Lagos was also a great help. The pool is lovely & warm.

Aldi right next door was incredibly handy.

Lagos is a great place to stay - lots of lovely restaurants & the Marina is lovely. The weather was fabulous.

We did the dolphin trip & went to Slide & Splash - great trips well worth the money.

All in all we had a wonderful holiday - no rushing out at silly o'clock to get a sunbed.

Thank you Rik - your apartment was a great place to stay & we really appreciate all your help.

We will be back!!

Debbie & the family

Owner's Response: It`s always with great pleasure to deal with wonderful guests like Debbie & Family, especially when they tell you that their children made new friends in Lagos (always a nice comment to say), that just goes to show what a family friendly orientated place to go and visit, as it makes everything that we are achieving so much more worth while and even more determined to continue to do in the future. We really will look forward to seeing you in the near future. Rik

The Smith family stay.

  • 5 of 5

Rik's apartment is everything and more than all the previous reviews. Everything has been provided to ensure that you have a stress free stay. Beautiful interior, comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen and the shower was powerful just what you need after a day on the beach! Loads of restaurants and bars in Largos Marina but with Aldi on your doorstep just as easy to cook and enjoy the sunset with a nice cold glass of Champagne or Prosecco. Rik was on hand when we needed him after our Grandson left the key in our apartment locking us out - problem was solved within 15 minutes, thanks again Rik. Wouldn't hesitate coming back. Great two weeks, thanks Stephanie, Arthur and Daniel.

This is our third visit to this appt. CAN'T FAULT IT immaculately clean, extremely well equipped and well located for Marina, Centre square for lovely resreraunts, live music and local beaches which are a must.

Very nicely furnished and the sky tv is a huge bonus.

Huge balcony which gets sun until late evening enabling bbq facility to be used until late which is a treat.

Pool area kept spotless and very well maintained, each appt having sole use of there own sunbeds...so no towels on sunbeds to reserve, as this is a pet hate to me so brilliant!

Well worth the money as you get lots of space, air con, and bluetooth music to all rooms, a family bathroom and 1 en-suite, large living space and large kitchen.

Third time and just getr better

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time that we have been to Rik`s apartment and it just gets better we can`t praise it enough, exactly what it says on the tin. If you want a short or long break (we have done both), it`s perfect shop`s supermarket`s, bar`s, restaurant`s, Lagos Marina, beach, town center all within 20 mins of the apartment. If you like a pool view from the balcony Rik`s apartment is directly overlooking it.

We are already looking forward to going back in September can`t wait.

Once again thank`s Rik for making our stay as relaxing and pleasant as possible.

Absolutely top class.Clean, Spacious , comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 16 nights, a family of 5 and it was the best holiday we ever had!All that is needed is there, kitchen is fab, beds very comfortable and the all important Tv channels for the Lions matches! The pool was lovely, quiet , which we loved. Sunbeds and inflatables there for the kids too.Very safe access from the pool, to apartment by elevator, which made it all very easy.An Aldi is right next door which was great for breakfast, lunches...we had our pick of places to eat by night, locally and in Lagos which we drove to and walked to as well, it's very accessible from here. We went to the beach a few days too, gorgeous beaches, all within a few minutes drive, so again, easy.we did a trip to Portimao which was lovely too, to the markets. and to Decathalon Sports store.

All the information is provided in the apartment which was agreat help.

Thank you so much Rik, everything was handled quite easily for us before and after our stay.We had a fantastic time and I would recommend your apartment to all!

Owner's Response: Hi Julie Once again Julie it is with great pleasure to deal with such a wonderful family, we are so pleased that you made full use of all amenities in the apartment and use of the pool. It`s also good of you to mention that you had a wide choice of eating places by night, as they are also very well priced. Lagos is one of those destinations that is has lots of history, character , not forgetting a well balanced night life for all, no matter what age. We look forward to hearing from your friends & family in the future. All the best Rik

Wonderful apartment - home from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely apartment for 5 days but wish it had been longer. It was just as described on the listing, in fact, it was better. It was so comfortable and spacious - we were completely relaxed and 'slept like logs'!! The area was lovely and quiet at night time. The apartment had everything you could wish for, was well maintained and very clean and the swimming pool was lovely. Having Aldi directly next door was a bonus too. It was about a 20 minute easy walk to the Marina/promenade. Lagos was a lovely resort and was full of people of all ages. Both Rik and his property manager, Steve, were very helpful at all times and Rik especially was a pleasure to deal with. We would definitely stay in this apartment again and would highly recommend to others.

15- 20 minute walk to the nearest sandy beach, which includes water sports or if you just prefer a beach walk to the picturesque coves all the way to Meia Praia. You will never have a problem finding space on the beach as they are so vast.


No car required as all facilities within walking distance. Faro airport 45 mins away, although we can arrange a meet and greet at the airport if you prefer. If wishing to travel further out of Lagos there is a train station by the beach which can take you to several local towns on the beautiful Algarve coastline.

There is also a bus station that runs opposite the marina or there is no shortage of car hiring places or if you are out in Lagos it only costs around 4 euros for a taxi home.


Main town of Lagos within 5 minutes walk. Portimao is around a 20 minute drive.
