Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our week here! Will definitely miss the beaches and grottos - a highlight for sure! We wandered in to Old Town (easy walk) most evenings for dinner. A particularly nice spot was Veneza. If you are seated indoors, it's a delight to watch the kitchen staff work their magic. Another lovely dinner spot, very near the apartment (stone tulip roundabout) is Alma Lusa. They have a Fado show on Wednesdays (reservations a must!) - fantastic! Make sure you hire a boat at the beach for a grotto tour!!!!

Perfect Accommodation Great Location

  • 5 of 5

First class accommodation with everything we needed for a great stay. WiFi and international TV for a relaxing night in. A relaxing stroll to Lagos centre for a great night out. Some great restuarants, one of which (Paradisio) is a stones throw from the apartment.

Thanks for a superb stay will be looking to book for a 6th time with you soon.

Extremely well maintained and furnished apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time and the weather was excellent. Lagos has a nice laid back feel with a very cosmopolitan feel to it and lots of young people. Your apartment is so nice and spacious and ideal for us - its in such a great location for the beach and town and just what we hoped for. Our grown up children enjoyed it as well - one of the most laid back holidays we have had. Lagorent taxis were excellent. We hired a car for 3 days and went to Silves castle, cathedral and ancient town which I really liked, also Sagres and the beach at Boco de Rio where we had a picnic and explored the remains of the Roman villa falling on to the beach, and the last day saw us go to Aljezur to see the ruined spectacular 12th century castle then to lovely Monchique and Mount Fajo.

Thank you for the lovely follow up email and of course for allowing us to rent your wonderful apartment for our 2 week holiday recently. We had the most amazing time and it was so nice to be able to come back to a beautifully furnished and comfortable apartment after a long day out exploring or at the beach. I was very impressed with everything available at the apartment and in particular all the cooking equipment, utensils, crockery etc. in the kitchen.

Great destination !

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious apartment with huge terrace overlooking the pool. Nice décor. Clean and very well equipped with everything you could need - from picnic stuff, cool boxes to hairdryers. A real home away from home. Local access to loads of beaches - a short walk or drive if you don't fancy walking. Good local bus service. Food shops and restaurants locally or a short walk into town to enjoy a stroll along the waters edge to Lagos old town to enjoy one of the many restaurants there. A great destination -we loved it. Recommend it.

A Lagos gem

  • 5 of 5

The DA2 unit is spacious, bright, and very well furnished, the best we have encountered in over 10 years of renting "self-catering" apartments. All rooms have sliding doors opening to a large deck, with table, chairs, and lounge chairs for sunbathing. There is easy access to the pool from this deck. The local property managers were very responsive to our calls.

It is a short walk to the Dona Ana beach, and to walking trails along the cliffs, with stunning views of the ocean and the town of Lagos. There are numerous restaurants within a few minutes walk, and the old walled city is just a 10 minute stroll away, with more shops, cafes, and restaurants.

The owners provide extremely helpful advice in advance about travel to Lagos, about the unit, and about the town. Ken and Marie make a genuine effort to ensure that you have an enjoyable holiday. We had a terrific time and highly recommend this rental home.

Back Again To A Stunning Apartment In Lagos

  • 5 of 5

Dear Ken and Marie

Thanks so much for welcoming our family back to your beautiful apartment in Lagos.

We stayed with you in the summer of 2015 and fell in love with Lagos and everything it has to offer. We vowed to return and knew exactly where we would stay.

Once again Marie from the onset you took very good care of us from organising airport transfers to facilitating an early entry time after a long journey.

We arrived to an apartment which was spanking clean( and I'm terribly hard to please with clean!!) and had a lovely welcome pack of wine, water and cereal. Nice not to have to immediately race to the shops.

We were met by a very friendly and patient Property Manager who showed us the ropes.

Not only is the level of care provided first class, the apartment really has it all.

We enjoyed the space on the sun terrace and the furniture provide both by day and night and how perfect to walk 6 steps to the pool.

The apartment is well stocked with everything, kitchenware, picnic ware and beach kit. We also took full advantage of book and DVD librarys.

There is also a huge amount of detailed info in the apartment which led to lots of lovely trips and dining experiences.

We feel very blessed to have found this apartment and have booked to return next year....... only 48 weeks to go!!

Thanks again Marie and Ken.

Best Regards.

Bob, Jane, Lewis and Rowan.
