We have rented Marlon's penthouse between 3 friends as a base to explore the surfing spots in the Algarve.
The apartment was ideally located in a quiet narrow street in the center of Lagos with breathtaking views of beaches and old town from the terrace.
The old town is paved and mostly closed to traffic and you will have all commodities at your doorstep from (surf) shops to bars , to restaurants, etc...
The apartment is modern, well designed , spacious and clean. All amenities are available which is an added bonus for those travelling from far away like us .
Obviously the roof terrace is a fantastic asset to the property.
A car is not necessary but you have easy access to secured underground parking within 5mn walk from base.
Marlon was very responsive and accommodating which made the whole booking process easy. He gave us quite a few tips too regarding surfing conditions throughout our stay :)
We will definitely recommend Marlon's penthouse to anybody looking for a great, convenient base in Lagos
Perfectly located in town, close to restaurants, and within easy walking distance of the marina & beach.
Not accessible to the doorstep and no parking, however, you can drive to within 50 metres of the front door and I parked at the top of the hill under the Castle walls, a 5 minute walk and free.
Everything in this property is as described.
Well worth the visit
The apartment is very modern, immaculately clean and is in the most brilliant central location in Lagos. Considering the central location of the apartment, it was so quiet, even when sitting on the rooftop terrace, which had great views.
The apartment is in a very secure building, I think there were only 6 apartments in the block.
Bars and restaurants are literally seconds away.
A car is absolutely not necessary as the apartment is so central. There are supermarkets of various sizes nearby, but we used a small supermarket that was within a minutes walk away. Although a car is not necessary, we did have a car. There is an underground car park a few minutes walk from the apartment, my husband did find a free parking space about 10 minutes walk.
This was our third time staying in Lagos and would recommend the area.
The owner was very helpful and responded very quickly to our queries prior to us booking the apartment. We had one query while we were in the apartment and the owner responded to our question very quickly.
We used Tripadvisor for all our restaurants and had great meals each night.
We would 100% recommend the apartment.
Penthouse was really spacious and well equipped. Greta location inthe centre of the old town of Lagos and fabulous roof garden. Really enjoyed our stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this Lagos Penthouse. A brilliant location not far from the beach and in a lovely area of Lagos' old town. We loved the fact that the sun was always shining on one of the 2 terraces or on the roof terrace where it was brilliant to relax at the end of the day.
The apartment itself had everything we could have hoped for and was really tastefully decorated and comfy too. In fact we both had the best night's sleep we've had in a long time!
I would definitely recommend staying here and hopefully we'll be able to visit again soon.
My partner also fell in love with Don Toro across the way where he said he had the best fillet steak yet!
