My boyfriend and I stayed in the balcony apartment of Casa Beachcomber for a couple of days in august. The apartment was quite small, but quirky and well equipped, and we relished having a private balcony overlooking the grounds and pool area. The property itself is quiet and secluded, with beautiful gardens. Colin, the caretaker, an absolute character, was more than welcoming and only too happy to show us around the other apartments (we arrived on turnover day so the previous guests had just moved out).
Although it was a pleasant walk from Beachcomber into Lagos (around 15/20 minutes), I would recommend a car, especially if you're planning on using local supermarkets, as it would be quite a hike back to the villa with a lot of shopping!
The only downside is that there was no air conditioning in the apartment, although during the afternoon the breeze picked up and by evening it was actually quite cool, so this definitely wasn't too much of a problem for us.
All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return to Casa beachcomber!
We stayed at Beachcombers in the Balcony apartment in September 2013. There was a lounge with very comfortable seating a well equipped kitchen a small bathroom with a spacious shower and a small bedroom with a triple aspect leading on to a large balcony from where you can see the sea. Colin who manages the property is always on hand for good local advice or if you have been before (as many have) a friendly chat. There is a large pool surrounded by ample good quality sun loungers and the scent of lavender coming from the excellently maintained gardens. There is also a hot tub and barbecue within the
Pool area. It's a beautiful peaceful property just outside the town of Lagos so a car is desirable. Lagos has a myriad restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets. We shall certainly return next year.
