What a fabulous week we had at Casa Beachcomber.

  • Submitted: Dec 3, 2012

What a fabulous week we had at Casa Beachcomber, the location is perfect for those who want peace and quiet without the need of a short train ride to get a loaf of bread in the morning. I would recommend having the use of a small car if you have children with you but walking to the marina is not out of the question. The old country club makes for a perfect little hide-away without being pretentious or exclusive. The individual apartments, quirky layout, mature gardens and well maintained facilities are ideal for those not wanting the formal atmosphere of a hotel complex and yet a cut above the non-descript masses of apartment blocks springing up. I cannot praise highly enough the friendly and helpful assistance from Colin at the resort and Agatha, a delight to deal with. If you have teenagers who need entertaining, BoomBoom every night and like football bars this is probably not for you but if you can put up with a good read by the pool, a sea of gin & tonic, the smell of the garden flowers and the prospect of a Portuguese supper ahead of you, then I think you would not be too disappointed.

My boyfriend and me want just to say thankyou for the wonderful week that we had spent in your beautiful cottage apartment. The apartment was delicious, big and comfortable, a very quiet place. Colin was incredible, he suggested to us lots of restaurants, he was always very pleasant. Thankyou again. I hope we could come back again to Casa Beachcomber.

The perfect place to stay!

We spent ten days in early September at this lovely place - and congratulated ourselves for having found this hideaway! The property is beautiful, lush garden, fantastic pool, nice terasses and balkonies, everything excellenty maintained (thanks to Colin, the caretaker, who is a very nice person and always willing to give advice or a helping hand!!). The Villa is placed on a hill a little outside of Lagos centre and the Marina. It took us about 20 Minutes to walk down to where the restaurants and the Marina are, but we had a car (which we would recommend to get to all the lovely beaches and bays arround this area). Lagos itself turned out to be an excellent starting point for various activities. There are lots of nice beaches and snorcheling spots nearby, we rented a motorbike one day to go to the West Coast and the Monchique Mountains (it's amazing how quickly you are away from the average beach tourism and feel like now you are REALLY in Portugal) and in the Marina there is a lot of water sports on offer (we went on a sailing trip, but they also have grotto trips, kayaking, glas-bottom boats, speed boats, etc.)
Once you are back home after a day ful of activities, Lagos offers a great variety of restaurants and bars. And if you don't want to walk back up to Casa Beachcomber, you can take a cab for arround 5 or 6 Euros. There is also a big supermarket (Pingo Doce) nearby Casa Beachcomber (close to the Marina) where you can get everything you need to self-supply you. the kitchen in the Pool Appartment that we stayed in was perfectly equipped and we also used the huge Barbecue that they have at the pool. Ah - and we actually used the jacuzzi as well: We didn't think we would because it was really hot weather during our stay in Lagos - but after our motorbike trip we were quite chilled through and enjoyed half an hour in hot, bubbling water.

All in all we would highly recommend Casa Beachcomber for everyone that doens't want to stay in a hotel "ghetto" but prefers to have a lot of space and freedom - without having to lack comfort and nice, well-maintained surroundings. We could make use of all the lively sides of Lagos - but didn't HAVE to. We fell in love with the idea of coming back with all our friends and rent the whole Villa (not just one appartment) - but, well, I guess that idea has to wait for a little more :) Anyway - we would come back agai any time - thanks, Colin, and thanks, Agatha!

Review on all 6 apartments at Casa Beachcomber

  • Submitted: May 30, 2011
  • Stayed: May 2011
A group of 17 of us, 8 to 55 yrs rented the 6 apartments during May 2010. We were worried at first, as it would be easy for such a large group to get under each others feet over a two week period, but we shouldn't have worried - the apartments are spacious and spread out just enough so we could enjoy our own privacy, but close enough and large enough so we could get together and party!

On arrival at the Villa,our breaths were taken away by the luxurious property which confronted us. It was far larger and far more spectacular than the photos had portrayed and we couldn't believe this was all "ours" for the next two weeks. We were greeted by Colin the caretaker - a lovely guy who was so helpful throughout our stay, plus he knew exactly how much attention to give us - he was there when we needed him, joined in when we asked him to, but stayed out of the way enough to allow us to feel uninterrupted when required. The rooms were all beautiful - huge! Even the smaller apartments were much larger than other 1-bedroomed apartments we've stayed at around Europe. They were spotlessly clean, and equiped for all of our needs - Colin even managed to find us an ice crusher to make our Strawberry Dakari cocktails that we enjoyed at the numerous bar-b-ques we had around the pool in the evenings. And talking of the pool, all 17 of us had a fantastic time in the pool together and there was still plenty of room! Early evening we all retired to our own apartments for a bath or shower and a bit of rest, then we got together at one of the large patio areas for some relaxing drinks before heading off out to eat/drink. The cafe 2-3 minutes walk away was usually our first point of call; and they made us all a wicked Sunday Lunch one Saturday evening - it was the best Beef I'd ever eaten, with all homemade trimmings (Yorkshires/Stuffing/Roast Spuds, etc.) and they only charged 9 Euros a head. Evening entertainment there was also good a couple of nights - just one guitarist and a singer - but after a couple(?) of beers/wines we all enjoyed a dance.

All-in-all this was one of the best holidays we've taken. The apartments were certainly the best ever and Lagos was lovely. I would thoroughly recommend these apartments for people of all ages and groups of 2-20, as we certainly plan on returning. A big thank you to Agatha and Mike, and of course, to Colin.

Beachcomber is as delightful and relaxing as it sounds. You can see twinkling of the sea from here, but you’re surrounded by stirring countryside. It’s prime walking territory. You could head for a hike in the hills or be in town or on the unspoilt Meia Praia beach in 10 minutes. On the way, at Marina de Lagos where boat frequently set sail for leisure, fishing or watch dolphins in the ocean, it's truly amazing sights. Or you may prefer to take a leisurely walk on the Promenade by the river; a wonderful place to watch sunset. The delightful Lagos centre with its historic Castle, churches and traditional tiled buildings set along wander of cobble streets, squares with fountains where there are fantastic selections of restaurants, café and bars. Zoomarine, Slide & Splash and ZooLagos are within half an hour by car. For Golf lovers, Beachcomber is only 1 km away from Palamres, 10 minutes from Boa Vista, 15 minutes from Parque de Floresta to the West and Penina to the East.

Other Activities: Restaurants and bars at the Marina and Pingo doce supermarket are with in 15 minutes walk

Beachcomber is accessed through secure electronic gates with keypad. Private drive to ample car parking. Large beautiful well planted mature garden with orange and lemon trees for shade near the pool. Lovely, well maintained lawn that used to be a bowling green. A purpose built barbecue , 5 person jacuzzi / hot tub under palm tree and a swing seat all near the pool. Lagos is popular with holidaymakers from northern Portugal and so boasts a vast array of fantastic restaurants, interesting sights and stunning coastline and beaches. Sun worshippers will not be disappointed with the reliable Algarve weather bringing them the best to either relaxing in private by the villa’s large pool, or it’s a short walk to the longest beach in the area, Meia Praia. Those looking for sightseeing are in the middle of the best that the Algarve has to offer, yet renting an apartment in Beachcomber gives you a welcoming home to come back to each evening.
