What a lucky find was this apartment. When we viewed it on Holiday Lettings, it seemed too good to be true, but we have used this company before and have never been disappointed, so went ahead with the booking.
The apartment was exactly as described, with large, well proportioned rooms, a spacious balcony complete with efficient barbecue, table and chairs, where we had breakfast every day as well as BBQs in the evening. There was also a huge private roof terrace, accessed by an internal spiral staircase, with comfortable shaded seating, another table and sun loungers. There were also several nice shrubs in pots, with their own automatic irrigation system.
The furnishings inside the apartment were of top quality, with leather sofas, solid wood sideboards and a glass-topped dining table (which we did not use!). Everything was spotlessly clean and the beds very comfortable. Special mention must be made of Carlos, the owner's agent, who met us on arrival and showed us around the apartment and the excellent communal swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and gym. Whenever we needed assistance or advice, a quick text to Carlos had him at our door within a few minutes. He was always cheerful and efficient and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for him.
Our communications with the owner, Fraser, was also flawless. He answered all of our queries promptly and kept us informed of everything we needed to do regarding the booking.
There are two supermarkets, Lidl and Pingo Doce within two minutes walk and a lovely Italian restaurant, Borsalino, again only two minutes walk away. The marina and promenade were less than ten minutes walk and the walled Old Town with its myriad of shops and eateries just fifteen minutes along the promenade.
In short, we were delighted with the accommodation, communications and friendliness of both Fraser and Carlos and would heartily recommend this superb apartment for a quiet, relaxing holiday in Lagos, with everything within easy walking distance, even for oldies like ourselves!
