We had a wonderful holiday (one week, beginning of June) at Raquel's apartment. The apartment had everything we needed and the view is amazing! We had a rental car and could always park in front of the apartment. Beaches are only a short drive away (5 minutes to Praia de Dona Ana or 10 minutes to Meia Praia). The apartment was very clean and communication with Raquel and Filipa was always easy. Thanks a lot for a wonderful holiday!

My mom and her friends stayed at Raquel's place during their holiday for 10 days in the end of May and have only the best things to say - it exceeded all their expectations, everything was 110% - clean, spacy, amazing view/balcony, huge kitchen where all 4 of them could easily fit and cook together comfortably, it had all of the kitchen essentials you could think of, and they could find everything they needed all over the appartment. It was cosy and it truly felt like home, which was really special! The communication with Raquel was very smooth and quick - she answered all my questions and messages promptly and helped with all she could during their stay. Filipa, who met them on the first day was so great as well! Both hosts were kind, attentive and helpfull, truly caring about their guests. I can not express my appreciation more :) So glad that we picked her place and highly recommend for those who are wondering where to stay in Lagos - search and think no more - you found it! :)

We were met by Filipa who does a great job of keeping the apartment clean, she was friendly and helpful, we spent our mornings in the sun on the balcony, which looks out over Lagos and over the sea, the apartment doesn't have Air-con, but we found it wasn't necessary as there was a nice cool sea breeze and an electric fan if needed,the shower worked fine and we had no problems, we had three meals at Braso, which is two minutes walk straight across the road, silva and his wife run this small restaurant, which can get busy sometimes, Silva has a cheeky sense of humor which is great, patience is a virtue and the food is worth the wait. we had a couple of meals and drinks at "The Garden" which was a really chilled out place, very rustic, sort of hippy, had ribs and they were fantastic. Old Lagos town is relaxed, people are not pushy, very laid back, great place to relax and people watch. when can go back ;@)

Great experience at Raquel's house! We didn't meet Raquel personally, but communication with her was quick and easy. She arranged our arrival and prepared a bottle of wine, typical sausages and oranges as a welcoming pack. The apartment is very comfortable, bright, super spacious and was very clean. The kitchen is fully equipped. Towels and bed linen of very good quality. Cleaning once a week is included and very much appreciated! The terrace has excellent views. WiFi and TV are excellent too. We would love to come back and recommend it 100%

Well unfortunately this will be a negative review based mostly on our experience with the host Raquel. I will be objective and start with the positives. The apartment is big, bright, and looks like the pictures. There is a nice balcony with a great view. The WiFi was fast and reliable. The location of the apartment is Ok if you have a car. If not, its at least 20 min walk to the centre of town and about 25 to the closest beach, both uphill on the way back. The bed in the master bedroom is terrible, so narrow and bouncy and completely unrealistic for 2 adults. The pillows were so cheap and felt like they were filled with popcorn. We were given towels each week that smelled like mold and had to be washed with hot water and detergent before they were even useable. The entire apartment is filled to the brim with nic naks, therefore was very difficult to dust and keep clean. For example, the kitchen was overflowing with 5 sets of glassware, yet lacking very basic things such as a garbage can, or a decent frying pan or cutting board. With all of this aside, I have to say our experence with Raquel was the worst of it. We had rented the entire apartment on a long term, monthly basis at an agreed upon rate. We unexpectedly had a close friend come to stay with us for 7 nights. We reviewed our reservation on AirBnb, even modified it to show 3 guests and the difference in price said "Zero", so we didn't think much of this. We introduced our friend to the housekeeper and went along our bussiness as usual. We then got a Nasty email from Raquel basically saying we were criminals for trying to hide extra people, filled with statements such as "You must pay!!!". We were so taken aback by the accusations and aggression from her. We explained that no where in the reservation did is say anything about extra money for an extra person but she would have none of it. We finally agreed to pay her when my Mom stayed with us for four nights as we did not want any more conflict. Things went down hill from here. Raquel began to send the housekeeper on random days and at random times as if to spy on us. We found this to be extreamely DISRESPECTFUL and and unbelievable INVASION OF PRIVACY. She then proceeded to strip the entire second bedroom and bathroom (which we had paid for) of any towel or linen as if to ban us from using it. I had read some negative reviews of Raquel before i booked this apartment, and I chose to ignore them. Man do I wish I hadn't. If you are planning a trip to Lagos, do yourself a favor and stay as far away from Raquel and this apartment as you can, for she can and will ruin your vacation.
