The space

Wonderful 2 bedroom 1 bath apartment, centrally located, just 3 min walk to the city park with playground and skate park, 10 min walk to the city centre with its cafés, bars, shops, market and other places of interest, and less than 15 min walk to the nearest beach. 20 min leisurely and pleasant walk to the Marina.

The apartment has 3 balconies - 2 of them with sea view. The kitchen is new with a table seating 6+. Separate laundry area.

Each bedroom has a 150x200 bed, with one of the bedrooms also having a cot and a single bed.
Each bedroom has both drawer and hanging clothes storage.

There's free Wi-Fi, Cable television, and speakers which you can plug into your phone, tablet or laptop for decent sound quality when you listen to music.

There are no power adaptors. I used to provide several, but they have slowly disappeared and I've decided not to replace them. If you forgot to bring your own, please don't purchase them from a "Chinese Shop" - they usually don't comply with EU safety standards. Instead, you should be able to get one from one of the major supermarkets, or, in the town centre, in R. Infante de Sagres, there is an electric equipment shop.

The street has several amenities, including a post office, a few cafés and restaurants with wonderful typical Portuguese food. There's also a butcher, a small grocer and a laundry place, among other businesses.

One of the best things about my apartment is how close it is to everything without being in the middle of it all. So you can walk to a nice restaurant and back without worrying about taking a cab back home after drinking that wonderful "vinho", yet it's far enough away you don't have to deal with the noise from all the ones who decided to stay up and out until 7 a.m.!

Joy's apartment is the perfect place to stay in Lagos. It was an easy walk down t the shops of Lagos and a (hilly) but nice walk to the best beaches. We had no trouble parking the car and loved exploring Lagos from here. The balconies have a great view and are the perfect place to sit in the sun and relax. The apartment is beautifully decorated and a fun place to explore. We had everything we needed to cook and the apartment was stocked with plenty of things to keep you comfortable and entertained.

Joy's place is a lovely apartment situated within walking distance of the historic city centre. It is very airy and bright and was very well kept and clean. The apartment itself is also stocked with anything one might need during a holiday - Joy was even kind enough to provide beach towels and parasols. The area around the apartment is very quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the centre's narrow roads. Overall our stay at joy's place was very comfortable and enjoyable and would recommend her apartment for anyone visiting Lagos!

The apartment is situated in a perfect location. Not far from beaches and city center. In the apartment you'll have everything you need. We wanted a quiet place and Joyce's place was a perfect choice.

This place is an easy walk into the old city, but it's nice to be in an area where you can also easily go out by car to explore other areas. Very well furnished and comfortable apartment.

Wow! The apartment is huge and you have a wonderful bay view from the balcony. We found everything in place that we needed - even a sunshade. Joy is a perfect host - she gave us all necessary information and many valuable recommendations!

I was born in Africa, raised in Europe and educated in America. My eclectic background is reflected on my flat in Portugal, which I love to bits. Its character has been built over time with collected things and gifts from here and there. I love books, music and art and I hav…
