For a great, chill out holiday without hassle
We have stayed twice at Lagos Marina for a week each time on two consecutive years. On each stay, we had a really great, easy going time.
For starters, you have a stunning sandy beach just a few minutes walk away. We enjoyed great weather in late September and also in the last week of October (25-30 C - hot enough to get a tan, mild enough to be pleasant). The beach is safe, clean, and has a few beachbars dotted along it, with proper, good food.
The house we stayed in was modern, clean with all mod cons (and many that you wouldnt expect, such as the roof top terrace, barbecue, jacuzzi, table tennis and bikes on the ground floor). We used the large swimming pool on occasion, but the draw of the endless beach was too good to resist.
Location: the house is within a short walk to everywhere: the marina is about a minute away (we did a couple of outings aroudn the bay to see the coast, dolphins, caves etc); there's a large supermarket about 3 mins away; beach about 3-5 mins, Lagos centre (which has a pleasant small, traditional seaside town feel to it) about 10mins walk, with a good selection of good restaurants and many shops and bars; golf course and 4 star hotel with excellent tennis courts and spa/massage about 10 mins. Its a really great place to stay if you want to chill out and relax.
In terms of accomodation, we had 8 people across 3 generations staying in the house on one occasion. On the following year we had 7 people (all late 30s and it worked equally well.
It worked so well for us, which is why we went back, We know about a dozen other people who have similarly stayed here and had a great holiday.
Owner's Response: Thanks folks - we try to provide a hotel-like experience at a much lower cost. Sounds like we got it right this time. We hope to see you for visit number 3 in the next few years! Very best wishes Paul
