Excellent apartment in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed 8 nights here with hubby and two teenage sons. All looking for a bit of 'chill out ' time. Apartment was immaculate and had everything we needed - seperate bathroom for the boys and plenty of storage. Dishwasher and washer useful for cutting down on the packing. Plenty of on site info, and we actually booked the taxi for the return airport trip - costing 2 thirds of our trip from the airport - so very useful. Pool area almost deserted till after lunch, and the whole resort was getting busier as we left, but we never queued for a restaurant - and the choice was amazing. Plenty of choice - especially for the seafood lover, and usually cooked fresh to order.

Lovely harbour and the beach was a 10 min walk - it was near some cafes etc and was beautifully clean. The area is not too hilly, and the promenade was a pleasant evening stroll.

Dealing direct with Jo was brilliant, and made the overall experience very efficient.

Would definitely return - thoroughly enjoyable.

excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

Just to echo previous review this is an excellent apartment in the fine resort of Lagos. Stayed end of July beginning of August apartment is clean spacious and has everything you need. Location is very central with marina and town centre a short stroll away. There's a pingo doce supermarket just a couple minutes walk which had excellent choice and was very reasonably priced.

Air conditioning in bedrooms and lounge was very welcome with temperatures never falling below 30 degrees. And with teenage daughters the WiFi worked a charm with good coverage indoors (it didn't quite stretch to the lovely sun terrace).

Shared pool in complex was fine for a dip and we managed to find sunbeds most days even at this busy time of year.

First time booking direct with an owner so a liitle wary but Jo was a pleasure to deal with. Would recommend apartment to anyone.

Fabulous Appartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 weeks in July in this apartment in Lagos - my wife and I and our 8 year old boy and 4 year old girl. The apartment was absolutely brilliant - everything said in the description is totally accurate regarding tv, wifi and kitchen equipment, etc.

The terrace is particularly good. A very large, completely private sunny space which we used to eat, play, read, listen to music and even dry clothes!

The location is also fabulous. 1 minute to the terrific Cafe Fresco across the road, 5 minutes to Pingo Doce supermarket. 10 minutes and you are right in the centre of town having passed more than a dozen good restaurants or bars on the way and 15 minutes will take you to the beautiful Maia Praia (having passed the Marina on the way). The bus station is only minutes away too.

All communications regarding the rental were perfect too. Fast, friendly with very clear instructions at every stage.

I really can't recommend this property highly enough.

5 Star amazing holiday and apartment!

We had the most amazing holiday in Lagos, the apartment was beyond our expectations, modern, clean and had everything we needed and more. Well positioned for either walk to beach or into the marina and town centre. Absolutely loved the big sunny patio, we will definitely be back, can't wait. Thank you Jo and Pete, highly recommend to anyone looking.

First Class Apartment and Facilities

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 days at this wonderful apartment in Lagos. The owner Jo was extremely helpful during the booking and planning and ensured that we arrived with all the correct information, also a welcome pack which was greatly appreciated. The weather on our trip was changeable and this brought the apartment into even greater use. A real home from home with all the facilities you would need, including wi-fi, television, cooking and washing facilities and I have to say the comfiest bed I have slept in when on holiday. The apartment is in a great location, close to everything Lagos has to offer. The pool and play park were ideal for our 10 year old son, even in the rain. I would thoroughly recommend this beautiful apartment and having spent many holidays in Lagos it is one of the best...thanks for a great holiday...Derek, Wendy and Dylan.

No Hassle Relaxation- Sept.2014

  • 5 of 5

As mentioned in other reviews, the apartment is ideally situated to make the most of all Lagos's many attractions. Easy walking distance from most of the 200+ restaurants, bars, cafes even for us oldsters.

The apartment looks and feels like someone's home rather than a rental investment. It is spotless and well maintained with everything you could ever need supplied.

Jo made the whole rental process very easy, responded promptly to e- mails and was very efficient in completing the finances.

I'm sure we've all experienced the other end of the spectrum, so it took much of the strain out before we arrived.

We look forward to doing it again soon.
