                                                                                                      4 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the appt, which is on the first floor of a courtyard style complex, as usual quiet in mid-october. The balcony faces inwards overlooking the patio & swimming pool, which is good as the outside view is of a less salubrious part of Lagos; while the noise from the road below each of the bedrooms disturbs a little when the shutters are open. The advantage of being this close to town of-course, is that you can wander into the old town in the evening & enjoy the plentiful restaurants, without worrying if that was your first or fourth glass of wine ! The appartment has everything required to ensure a great holiday, from web based TV to a parasol for those beach trips, if I had to be hypercritical some of the equipment is due an update or replacement eg the barbeque, but that is being really picky & I'm sure is in hand for the 2018 season. There are far more positives than negatives to report such as the superfast broadband which works in every room including the veranda, secure underground parking & a properly equipped kitchen with an super efficient fridge for chilling those Super Bocks for evenings on the veranda. The only thing which would put me of returning is the lack of air-con, although not a problem in October. Communications with Veronica the owner worked well, and despite arriving late in the night, the instructions guided us straight to the door and we gained entry without drama. In a nut shell we were sorry to go home as we love Lagos, and would certainly use this appt again.
