The space

This villa has 7 double bedrooms and space for up to 14 people. Because this villa is much too big for me I have been renting out individual rooms to many different travellers from all over the world for many years. In this manner this villa has become something of a 'guesthouse', but here everyone has a big shared kitchen to use - there are three kitchens and three living rooms in the villa. There is one bedroom on the ground floor with en ensuite shower, all the other bedrooms share bathrooms (4 people per bathroom maximum).

Around the villa you will find:
Swimming pool & Baby pool
Tennis court
Sea view

The distances by car are as follows:
Beach 4 minutes
Golf course 4 minutes
Shops 15 minutes
Village Odiaxere 5 minutes
Lagos town 15 minutes
Airport Faro 55 minutes
Westcoast 40 minutes
Waterslide park 25 minutes
Sevilla 2.5 hours
Lisbon 3 hours

Breakfast is not provided and not included in the price.

The price displayed on airbnb is per big double bedroom per night. (3 of the bedrooms are large enough for 3 people.) For a small room with a shared bathroom the price is €50 per night.

My calender will often appear fully booked or not available for certain dates: please get in touch with me anyway as sometimes I do still have individual rooms available.

The kitchens have all the necessary amenities. There's wifi and all the other things you might need on your trip.

I can also rent out the entire top-floor of the villa which has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a living room and a kitchen so please ask me for more info if you are interested in renting the whole apartment.

Some of the bedrooms lead directly to a terrace with panoramic sea view.

Next to the villa there's a private tennis court and swimming pool. Let me know if you need private/group tennis lessons! I know a patient, qualified teacher!
There's also a little barbeque hut which seats up to 20 people with a large grill for cooking the fresh fish that you bought in the local market. This is free for everyone to use, just please clean up after yourselves! This place can also be great fun for the young ones in the family.

You'll need a car, as we are situated in the countryside, but the coast is a twenty minute walk away across the shrubs and golf course of Palmares Golf. Lagos is the nearest town and it is 10 minutes away. The village of Odiaxere is only 5 minutes away by car: here you will find a market on the weekend. In the historic, picturesque town of Lagos there are excellent restaurants and bars and there's a small zoo too.

In front of the villa is the lagoon, and beyond that the Atlantic. Kite-surfing beginners are welcome to take lessons in the lagoon: in the summer I host a lot of surfers as I work together with the professional water sports teachers at Algarve water sports. On occasion I also organize sunrise and morning Yoga sessions with an excellent local instructor. Depending on how many dancers are around I can also organize Tango Milongas.

Meia Praia, a 7 kilometre long beautiful white beach is a 4 minute drive away and the west coast (where there's big waves) is only 45 minutes.

My villa and the surrounding countryside is unique and off the beaten path. I love sports and my property is perfectly suited for sports and nature lovers. In the summertime I enjoy spending time with my guests in the grill-hut where all of us throw meat and fish onto the fire and enjoy the sunset whilst listening to nice music.

Other things to note

Bath towels and bed linen is provided.

House Rules
Check in is anytime after 2PM

Here are some rules which come in handy:

- do not trust your GPS/TOMTOM or 'Navi' to find my house, because you will get lost. Use the driving instructions that I have provided.

- the most important thing for me is that all of my guests feel at home and have a great time so please ask/tell me immediately if something is not working or missing.

- toilets/bathrooms: please dispose of paper, pads and toiletpaper in the bins next to the toilets and not in the toilet!

- towels: please don't take the white towels to the beach, these are only for use at the house. If you don't have your own towel for the beach just ask me and I will give you one.

- laundry: i charge 3 euros per machine. I give you the basket and show you which machine you can use and you get to hang your own laundry up!

- I am flexible with check-in and check-out but sometimes I do require guests to respect exact check-out times. Changes to check-in and check-out will be discussed further in my personal correspondence with you.

- Its great if people party a little bit in the grill-house, but please keep the noise levels down to 'normal' after midnight unless absolutely everyone is there and no-one is trying to sleep....

- Rubbish needs to be brought to the big communal bins that are dotted along the road to Lagos. Everyone should bring away their own rubbish, thank you!

- Things can break, this is not a big problem, please tell me so that I can replace it or fix it in time!

- I have old tennis rackets and oldish tennis balls which you can use. Once you have finished using them please dont leave it all spread out over the tennis court.

- trampoline: please only jump one person at the time (or try to keep to 100 kilos maximum).

- sun umbrellas: don't take the terrace or pool umbrellas to the beach because they might break and blow away. I do have beach umbrellas which have a lighter frame, they are stored in the little hut by the pool, feel free to take these.

- there is a cat and three dogs here. The cat likes to find the best comfortable beds to sleep on. If you have an allergy let me know in advance so that I keep the cat locked out.

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay. We had the whole top section of the house with great views and amazing privacy. We'd love to stay at Tunje's place again.

Thank you so much for such a relaxing and tranquil stay. The villa is beautiful, the location is remote but all the better as it is so peaceful and only 20 mins from Lagos. We enjoyed the well looked after pool and grounds and spent evenings on the patio listening to the piano practice echoing through the house, absolute bliss. Our only complaint would be the lack of wifi access but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would recommend for a relaxed and chilled environment as a base to explore the surrounding areas. The beaches were phenomenal!

Response from Tunje:
Dear Rachel, thanks for leaving a lovely review. Its a shame I wasnt able to meet you in person. I am very sorry about the wifi not working when you were there. The router probably needed re-booting and Isabelle was not aware how to do this. Am glad to read you enjoyed your stay nontheless and that you discovered those great beaches!

I HIGHLY recommend this wonderful home to any traveler; group, family, or solo. I was traveling alone and I couldn't have been treated better. They were warm and welcoming as we're all the other travelers staying at the property. The property has everything you could ask for and I had to have had the best room in the house...terrace with a sea view!! Just within a few short days it felt like home! In my opinion there is no downside, if I could give Tunje 10 stars I would! I can't wait till I can visit again! Thank You!!

This place is full of magic. The house is lovely, the ocean views are astonishing. The calm and fantastic garden, swimming pool and 5 dogs and a cat. We were renting two apartments in the main house for 12 people. We spent amazing week there. Isabelle and Tunje were very friendly. We already miss this wonderful place very much. We will defenately recommend it to our family and friends.

We stayed one week in the Villa. We were 6 people and stayed on the first floor. A perfect apartment for 6-7 people and with a nice balcony with sea view. We enjoyed our stay and it lived up to our expectations. There are a few things you need to know: 1) you need a car. min 3 miles to "everything" 2) You put toilet paper in the toilet. 3) The owner has 4 dogs and they barks from time to time. But otherwise nice dogs. The tennis court was fine and pool good too. Nice beaches 10 min drive away.

The villa was beautiful. A magnificent ocean view, swimming pool, comfortable bed, good kitchen for cooking, and nice bathroom. Tunje and her mother were extremely accommodating and gave great recommendations on where to eat and what to see. I wish I had stayed longer! The only regret was not having a car. It is a must. I had made a mistake with booking and was unable to get one the day of so I had to rely on taxis and they were not easy because I did not have international service to call and the house is a little bit outside of town.
