When you walk in for the first time you'll be amazed by the space - and the central location is also great (although you want to keep the windows closed at night and keep cool with the air con as some of the 4am revellers can occasionally be rather boisterous). If you want a great base for a relaxing break, this is it. There were a few minor niggles which we've reported to Marlon; once they have been fixed (as I am sure they will be) this penthouse would certainly be a 5 star stay.
Very good experience in this lovely penthouse apartment which is very well situated and handy for bars and resturants and shops
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.
