About Monina Hurl-Hodges

We have 3 daughters, and as a family love to travel. Lagos is such a beautiful town, with everything a family could need. My husband and I also like to go there by ourselves, and enjoy the restaurants and bars when we get the chance!

Monina Hurl-Hodges purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Monina Hurl-Hodges chose Lagos region

We wanted somewhere where a car was not necessary. Our apartment is perfectly situated, within a short walking distance of the marina, beach and old town, right beside cafes and supermarkets, yet on a quiet side street. Perfect!

What makes this apartment unique

The balconies get the sun from dawn to late afternoon, so while my teenagers may want to lie in, my husband and I can use the gym in the morning, or go for a stroll, picking up a latte from the Cafe Fresco in the complex, or the Pingo Doce store round the corner. Then bring breakfast back to enjoy in the sunshine on our lovely terrace. The ideal way to start a day lazing by the pool, at the beach, or going for a stunning cliff walk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are now back after a lovely week in Lagos! Your apartment is gorgeous - prestine, very spacious and well equipped - the best one we have ever stayed in. And so well located next to the marina and old town. We tried out all the local restaurants - our favourite was No Patio. Thanks for providing the sunbeds. We used them once by the pool (very comfy). On the other days we drove to local beaches. Your Lagos guide was very helpful. We referred to it many times - especially for the beaches! Thanks again for such a fabulous apartment!

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans cet appartement très spacieux avec une terrasse bien exposée, où nous avons déjeuné chaque jour en décembre. L'appartement est clair, agréable et Carla très réactive .

Good apartment, spacious, clean and quiet whilst being very close to the amenities of Lagos town

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is of a high standard, bright and modern. Furnishings are clean and well chosen. We found the neighbours friendly and helpful. The location of the apartment is excellent being within easy walking distance of the facilities of the delightful old town of Lagos. Coastal walks and very scenic beaches are nearby. Parking in the immediate vicinity of the apartment is free though car hire is not necessary as the bus station is only a few minutes walk away.

We had an amazing stay in Portugal, right from enquiry Molina was attentive and quick to respond and accommodating. The apartment is perfect for a family holiday - it is spacious and has everything you need and more - even down to a coffee maker - it's like home from home. The location is perfect - far enough away but close enough with a five minute walk into Lagos which has lovely restaurants and beaches. There is also a supermarket within walking distance. Thank you Monina we will return - you helped make our holiday seamless.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We were 2 couples, using Lagos as a base for golf and beach. The apartment was clean and functional, and located a 10 minute walk to the heart of the old town. We were met by the property manager, who gave us instructions on how to operate the door. Unfortunately, we did not know about the fact that the washing machine has a delayed door opening once the cycle finishes, so we broke the latch upon opening. The repair was expedited quickly and we were charged $200 Canadian from our damage damage, which is on the high side of what we would have expected.

Overall, I would recommend this apartment. The owner was prompt in returning emails, and the facilities are very good. Parking is readily available right outside the building too - very convenient.

Owner's Response: I am really glad you enjoyed your stay in Lagos. It was unfortunate that the charge for the damage, 79 Euro, ended up costing you so much in Canadian dollars. The reason being, on returning the rest of your security deposit, your Canadian bank's process of receiving the money created a large bank charge for you. However, as long as you had a good holiday, that is the main thing.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a lovely stay in Lagos. The apartment was perfect for our family. It was our home for 2 weeks and we felt so relaxed and comfortable from the moment we arrived. The location is perfectly located near the marina, town, train station for day trips and a 10 min walk to the beautiful beach. The facilities in the apt and complex were exactly what we needed with a baby in tow and we loved the option of the indoor pool for an early morning swim if it was a bit too cold for our daughter. Frescos is the best breakfast place in Lagos and it was perfect having it on our doorstep. We could find no faults with the apt and were grateful for the extra touches such as the stash of dvds & books and the dolce gusto coffee machine. We wouldn't hesitate to return. Thanks Monina for your hospitality, you've always been a pleasure to deal with throughout the process and that you for sharing your lovely home with us.

Lagos is the hidden gem of the Algarve and perfect for golfers! Protected by its 16th century walls, this picturesque town retains its old-world Portuguese charm. A fine selection of restaurants offering international cuisine, pavement cafes and stylish boutiques line the maze of cobbled streets. There is a superb fresh fish market, with fruit and vegetables for sale on the upper level.

Less than 15 minutes walk from the apartment is the fabulous Meia Praia beach - 5km of golden sand with every facility you could ask for, and the quieter town beach at Praia da Batata. A further 7 beaches are within easy reach, many of which are served by the local road train.

There are many golf courses within easy reach, including the beautiful Boa Vista in Lagos itself. Boat trips are available to view the grottos and sea caves, or to go Dolphin watching out at sea.

Please see Facebook 'Monina H Lagos' for lots of photographs of the complex, Lagos town, and our favourite restaurants and bars.
