Another fab stay in Porto de Mos!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in the apartment, having also stayed in summer 2015. It was just as we remembered, and we loved going back to the apartment and this area of Portugal.

The apartment is well stocked and in great condition. It has a lovely view of the pool area and the garden gets the evening sun which is great!

It is 5-10 mins walk to Porto de Mos beach and the cliff walk - which we only discovered this year but which is worth a visit for the great views!

As before, we hope to return next year as we all (family of 4 - kids aged 3 & 5) loved it just as much as last year!

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a two month stay at this apartment and could not fault anything about it. Gary always responded quickly and courteously to (my many) questions, he really was a gentleman to deal with. Doreen was waiting for us on arrival and the apartment was spotless. Everything we could have needed was provided and the apartment is very comfortable.

The beach bar/restaurant CampiMar was excellent for food and drinks, watching the sunsets while sipping a cocktail and in Lagos at the Marina the Oasis cafe is a must for excellent food and service. Would definitely recommend this apartment.

A pleasant quiet winter stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent two months, Feb. and March 2016, at Casa Ella. Ours was a two-month let at a time of year that we hoped would anticipate springtime in Canada. We were not disappointed, as we were not expecting summer weather, and the winter sun could be quite warm. Not enough for swimming in the lovely pool, but great for the patio.

First off, we need to express how much we enjoyed our stay in the apartment. It was well equipped, clean and readily accessible (for septuagenarians). The underground garage was very easy to access, a rare feature when compared to surrounding apartment buildings. The apartment is blessed with a south-facing patio that provides sun most of the day.

We very much appreciated the ready access to the Porto do Mos beach (a 15-minute walk at our slower pace) and the unexpected pleasure of the walking trails on the cliffs. The walk toward Praia da Luz became one of our favourite activities, especially since we could access the trail in less than five minutes.

We had not realized how much we needed to get appropriate rest and exercise after a two-year bout of extreme activity for our age: births, weddings, sale and purchase of houses, etc. As a result a single feature of the apartment became a godsend: the exterior blinds that kept the sunshine out until we woke up - sometimes after 10 AM!

Communication with Gary was easy and dependable. We very much appreciated his food and drink "care package" that was left for us, which meant that after a transatlantic flight we did not need to scrounge around for a quick meal immediately upon arrival. We also appreciated the ready access to the property managers. Doreen and Fred were always friendly, efficient, helpful, and available with help and advice when there was something we needed.

We would strongly recommend this apartment for visitors who enjoy a quiet, peaceful winter stay, and yet be close enough to drive in quickly to Lagos or grocery stores. We would gladly return.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this fantastic apartment for a 2 week break. It was our first holiday with our son who was 11 months old, so we needed something memorable but safe at the same time. We got exactly what we wanted. The apartment is modern and very comfortable with good size rooms and plenty of space, The patio was a great space for our son to go outside and play and we knew he was safe to do so. The location to Lagos was perfect as we enjoyed the walk into the Harbour and especially all the different bars and restaurants in Old Town. The service we received on arrival was first class as was the whole booking process. There was nothing I would have changed about our stay and would recommend this apartment for anyone looking for a nice relaxing holiday. We booked to go back as soon as we returned home.
