"Fantastic holiday experience!"
Lagos was a wonderful place to visit...great for walking, visiting the 'old town', enjoying restaurants, and going sight-seeing to nearby towns using public transportation. This apartment is situated in an ideal location to enjoy everything the area offers. It is very close to the bus station, where there is an amazing market on Saturday mornings. We especially valued the professionalism and helpfulness of Michaela and Sandra. Besides the great location, the apartment is very clean, secure, and comfortable, including the beds. It really was a wonderful place to spend our holidays, we' always treasure our memories. Thank you very kindly,

"Great apartment within easy reach of everything you need or would want to see."
Communication about the rental was great from the start and this continued right up until the end of our holiday. The apartment was great, furnished nicely, clean and really well situated in Lagos - we could easily get to the main centre and it was a great walk, either through the old streets or down along the harbour entrance. The pool in the complex was great for refreshing dips at the end of the day or if we were feeling energetic, for an early morning wake-up! We will be recommending this apartment to our friends.

"Great apartment in a great location."
Book with confidence.
From the moment we emailed Michaela an enquiry about availability of the apartment, we received an almost instant reply and all following correspondence was dealt with in the same manner. We were met by Sandra on arrival at the apartment, who was very friendly and gave us a tour of the apartment and the complex. We had an early flight and we were delighted to be given access to the apartment straight away as it was not occupied that morning. The apartment itself is very spacious and very well equipped for all cooking needs. We don't usually cook while on holiday, but with the facilities in this apartment along with the fact that there are two supermarkets (Pingo Doce and Lidl) within easy walking distance, cooking was no problem.
Both bedrooms are large with plenty of storage space and have high quality beds with the most comfortable mattresses.
The apartment complex has two pools (one indoor) both with max depth of 1.5m. and a jacuzzi. There is a baby pool also.
Outside on the ground floor is Cafe Fresco, which has a great menu for snacks and evening meals at reasonable prices.
The train and bus stations are also nearby and great if planning any daytrips. Bus at approx 200m and the train
station is less than 10 mins walk.(across the footbridge).
We travelled to and from the airport using Yellow fish transfers. We have used this company many times and find them most reliable and friendly.
A plus for this apartment is that it is located in an area where there are no hills to be negotiated and the centre of town is only 10 mins walk away.
By the way our security deposit was returned to our account on the night we arrived back home. Service!
Thanks once again to Michaela and Rui for the use of their wonderful apartment. We would recommend it to our friends.

We had a truly enjoyable stay in this modern, clean and nicely decorated apartment. I was a bit apprehensive about the location but it was really only a very short walk into the historic centre with all the lovely restaurants and shops. Excellent service from owner and management company (Michaela and Sandra)
I will certainly recommend to anyone I know going to Portugal and looking for a great location

"Fabulous accommodations and Michaela owner is great to deal with"
Just returned from a 2 month stay in Lagos...accommodations were wonderful/pictures do not do it justice...very large, clean and well equipped condo...5 minute walk to the center of old town with all shops and restaurants..5 minutes to the marina....the Fresco cafe that is attached to the condo building has the best carrot cake & also lunch specials for 8.50 euro...all meals very resonably priced in Lagos...and the wine compared to Toronto Canada...3.90 euro you can purchase a good red or white bottle of wine...The on-site management who was Sandra was wonderful to deal with and easily available if needed...For all of the above reasons I rate this holiday as excellent....Cheers Frank DeMois & Armand Gagne...
thankyou so much for your lovely comments, you were the perfect guests! we are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. welcome back anytime ;0)

"Excellent apartment, great location"
Everything is very close. Supermarket and bus station are in few minutes walk. Barber shop and coffee shop (with wifi) are in the same building. The appartment it self is quite big. It was more than enough space for two of us. The kitchen is well equiped. Everything works. We enjoyed our stay very much!
