Just back from a week’s holiday in Lagos Portugal. I rented a penthouse Apartment #8056106 from Aileen 0’Sullivan and to be honest the photos don’t do it justice…it is amazing. I was travelling with my 85 year old father, my 60 year sister who had had an operation the day before we flew and my other sister who had flown in from Australia. Well the apartment more than met our needs which were very varied. The apartment is huge with very comfortable beds and furniture – something you don’t find everywhere. The apartment has 3 terraces – 2 of which are very big. The location of the apartment is fantastic – 5 min stroll to the seafront and a large supermarket across the road. From enquiry stage to final checkout everything ran very smoothly – nothing was a problem for Aileen – she even had a phone call with my Dad! Aileen has 2 great guys looking after her property in Lagos – Rui her agent and Sergei who does the airport transfers. We actually engaged Sergei, for a fee, to take us up the mountains and down to Cape Vincent – he even booked restaurants for us in out of the way places which made us feel like VIP’s
Finally, I have to say this is one of the best holidays I have ever had, my family would agree, and this is down to Aileen – fab, huge, comfy, safe apartment, excellent location, nothing too much trouble, excellent service from initial enquiry to support on the ground when we arrived and throughout our stay
From the bottom of our hearts Aileen thanks for giving us a 5 star gold experience
We (two couples in late 50th) stayed in the apartment for 4 days at the end of our two weeks vacation in Portugal. If I was doing it again, I would skip the south all together, but our friends wanted to have a few days just to relax. Apartment complex (with pool, hot tub, etc - perfect for summer, but nobody used it while we there) is a good 15 minutes walk from Lagos center and 15-20 minutes walk to the beach. Both walks are ok, but not really enjoyable by itself. You can drive to the beach if you have a car. Beach is amazing! It is much better than many Caribbean beaches (very wide, clean, white soft sand), minus water temperature.
There is a big fully stocked supermarket downstairs, very convenient, but also somewhat noisy early morning during deliveries.
The apartment itself is very spacious and has all the necessary amenities. A few things need improvement though. Internet was very problematic, TV lacking any choices and there was no sports channels at all, to the huge disappointment of our guys, who were looking forward to watch some good European soccer. Also bathrooms need some counter space, as there was nowhere to put toiletries (we ended up taking chairs from the kitchen). We were told than the owner will come early next year and will take care of all issues.
A lovely spacious apartment set 2 mins walk from the nearest supermarket,
5 minutes walk to great restaurants, scenic marina and 15 minute walk to fantastic beaches. Aileen couldnt accomodate us anymore and was really helpful.
This family friendly apartment ticked all of the boxes for us. Loads of space in the 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, very spacious living and dining area, wifi, good size balconies enjoying the sun all day long. The photos do not do this place justice. Complex Indoor and outdoor pool suited for smaller ones and for people wanting a quick dip to cool out of the sun. We didnt use the small gym or feel the need to use the sauna but I suppose that they are nice to have. Would have no hesitation in recommending this place.
Apartment was first class and I would highly recommend it. Great location at the centre of lagos. Apartment owner Aileen was very helpful and responsive and even arranged airport transfers.
This penthouse apartment is beautiful and exceeded expectations. It is immaculate with everything you could possibly need for a holiday. The furnishings both inside and outside are first class. Communication with the owner was smooth and she is very pleasant and answered all questions. I would highly recommend staying here.
We were fortunate enough to find this luxury penthouse for our holiday in Lagos. I can only say that the owner Aileen maintains this to the highest of standard, making your holiday like a home away from home. It is located within an easy 5 minute walk from the marina area, where you will find an array of bars and restaurants, offering many different cuisines. The street atmosphere is tremendous.
If you want to stay around the apartment, then you will find the indoor heated swimming pool as well as the outdoor pool. In addition there are ample communal sun beds.
When we return to Lagos, Aileen will be our first point of contact.
Very enjoyable stay. Beds were very comfortable with good quality linens and towels. Large balconies on both side of the apartment, Building was very quiet with good security. Swimming pool and gym with plenty of chairs available. Center of town was about a 7 min walk away but the were also a number of restaurants right around the property. There is a large supermarket just a couple of minutes walk away. The owner was very easy to deal with responding to any questions promptly and offering lots of advice about the local area. Check in and out went very smoothly. I would highly recommend this property.
