We stayed at "Jacaranda" one bed apartment for two weeks. The apartment was clean and tidy, but lacked one thing to make the stay comfortable, AIR CONDITIONING". In the bedroom there was a humidifier which was not much good. The owner loaned us a large stand up fan, which we moved about the apartment to keep cool, without the fan it would have been very warm, although some nights it can cool right down with a sea breeze. In the apartment there is no facilities to wash clothes, although the owner provides a free laundry service, which is a little unpredictable. The one downside was the toilet, you can not flush paper down the loo, a bin is provided for dirty toilet tissue, which was to be emptied on a daily basis, during our stay two days were missed out of our two weeks, not good enough. The apartment its self is comfortable and the kitchen has enough utensils for self catering. Hot water was always available and the shower was great, good pressure. The TV had only one english speaking channel, BBC News 24, which was a big disappoinment. The free Wifi was first class, great reception at all times. The pool was of a good size and there was always room to get a swim. Our apartment had a good private patio for sunbathing, and was close to the pool.If you want to get to the beach, there is a pathway through the gardens, although some steep steps but managible. The host Johanna Kwarts was always to hand if you had any queries. The lock on the front patio door is very fiddly and some times hard to lock, but you soon get used to that. Inside the bedroom there is a electronic safe, good point. When young children are staying in the apartments, they can be rather noisy around the pool area. All in all we enjoyed our stay, it was very restful.
Die Vermieterin macht einen netten und freundlichen Eindruck.
Tipp: Nicht auf Kalender/Verfügbarkeit verlassen (letzte Pflege vor drei Wochen) und nicht das "Buchung anfragen" Formular verwenden (keine Antwort nach zwei Tagen) sondern immer direkt anrufen. Alles andere bringt nur Verzögerung & Frust.
Die Beschreibung des Objekts ist absolut zutreffend. Wir haben uns wie zu Hause gefühlt. Die Ausstattung der Wohnung mit hochwertigen Möbeln und Einrichtungsgegenständen, der Küche mit allen Geräten und hochwertigem Geschirr und Gläsern, die liebevolle Betreuung, die absolute Sauberkeit (Reinigung 2x pro Woche, inkl. persönlicher Wäsche) - alles top. Schöner Meerblick von der Terrasse, zum Strand Fussweg durch die Anlage und dann Treppenweg die Steilküste hinunter. Lagos ist ein tolles Städtchen. Wir werden wiederkommen.
The quiet and intimate beach of `Porto de Mós` is surrounded by the famous Algarve rock-formations and is only a 2 minutes walk away. At the beach you'll find some typical Portuguese restaurants with cosy terraces.
