Large 3-bedroom apartment with small private garden directly above Dona Ana beach.
This quirky apartment is our largest and has a lovely little private garden enclosed by low walls with a lockable gate. The garden is secluded from the outside bustle and is a perfect spot for sunbathing and having an early evening dinner. The apartment is perfect for large families or groups of friends, providing comfortable living for up to six adults (additional children can be accommodated, please ask).
There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large living room with dining area, and a kitchen equipped with all standard amenities (fridge-freezer, stove-top oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, coffee-maker and toaster). There is also a washing machine (no dryer) and all bookings include linens, duvets and bath towels for the number of people in the party.
We rent year-round so electric heaters are provided for winter rentals. Please note this apartment has no air conditioning but ceiling and/or floor fans in every room. We provide some coal for the coal grill but if more is needed, coal is available cheaply in local stores.
Things to note about this apartment:
The surrounding area
The apartment is part of a larger beachfront property which has been in our family for the past 50+ years, having originally started as a small fishermans cottage. We currently also rent the upstairs apartment which is a one-bedroom place with a secluded terrace and spectacular view of the sea. Both apartments have separate entrances and parking areas.
The area surrounding the property is generally pretty quiet and there are two neighborhood stores functioning year-round, as well as a small coffee shop open during the summer months. The entire property faces the sea and to one side has a tourist condo and on the other side the cliffs that go all the way to Ponta da Piedade (please check the map provided for info on the surrounding area) - however, the upstairs apartment and terrace is completely secluded from the nearby tourist condo.
PLEASE READ -- IMPORTANT INFORMATION
to book with CasaTrigoso, you must agree to the following:
Please be aware that our property is a quirky old beach house and sometimes has quirky old beach house problems (sometimes the gas bottles need to be changed, the fuse may trip, and random things may break). We are a tiny mother-daughter business and we do our very best to quickly solve any issues that may arise, but prospective guests should be fully aware that our apartments are not newly built, do not have fancy stainless steel kitchens or the latest décor. If you would like a new apartment, there are plenty of wonderful options in and around Lagos that you will likely enjoy more than staying with us. If, however, you enjoy cozy old houses with stunning ocean views and plenty of character (and possibly a resident spider or two) then do consider booking with us — we will welcome you with open arms.
Check-in/out: check-in is from 16:00 onwards and check-out is before 11:00. CasaTrigoso operates with self check-ins, this means that guests will let themselves in upon arrival. A few weeks before arrival, we will send guests a welcome pack containing travel directions, check-in details as well as a link for guests to submit the legally required identification information (see below).
Smoking is NOT allowed inside any of the apartments, please only smoke outdoors.
Cleaning fee: for stays under 4 nights we charge a flat-rate cleaning fee of EUR 100. We only charge a cleaning fee for these shorter stays, any stay 4 nights or above will incur no extra fees whatsoever.
Key service: each booking will include ONLY ONE set of keys. When not at the apartment, please keep the keys inside the lockbox. Each time a member of staff is called out to the apartment because of lost keys / keys left inside the apartment, there will be a €30 service fee. Lost keys will incur an additional €15 charge.
Additional guests: we charge EUR 20 per person per night for parties of more than six people in the garden apartment, four people in the veranda and patio apartments, and two people in the terrace apartment.
Bedding and towels: these will be provided for the number of people in your party. If you stay with us for over a week, someone will stop by on day 7 or 8 with some new linens for you and will ask for your old ones to wash. We will almost always remember to do this, but if not, please just get in touch and we'll fix it.
Toilet paper, coal for the grill, etc.: we will provide enough for the first few days, but guests are responsible for purchasing their own.
European Union identification law: we require that all non-Portuguese guests (including minors traveling with family) provide us with the following information: nationality, date of birth, place of birth, document type (passport, ID), document number, document country of issue, country of residence.
Travel insurance: we strongly urge all guests to purchase appropriate travel insurance to cover cancellations, or to book with a credit card that includes travel insurance. Because we can offer no guarantee that cancelled bookings will be refunded in whole or in part, it is important that guests have adequate insurance.
