Overview

This apartment is right in front of the sea and you can walk down to the beach in a minute. It is located at Dona Ana beach - one of the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve - and only a 5-minute drive or 20-minute walk from downtown Lagos.


Ideal for families and groups of friends
The apartment has a large patio right in front of the sea which is perfect for ball games. The patio is enclosed by low walls and has a large lockable gate, making it particularly safe for young children to play in. There is also a rose garden towards the side of the patio and a cactus garden in the back. The large outdoor area is perfect also for grilling food and inviting friends over to dinner with a stunning view of the sea.


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.

Summary:

2 bedroom apartment with large patio and jaw-dropping sea view, directly above Dona Ana beach.

Great location! Easy to access the beach and town. The view from the patio and living room was amazing! We plan on returning soon.

Fabulous location just seconds from the beach. Villa was clean and very well kept. Very comfortable. Maria was excellent as she explained where the finer dining and other shopping locations were situated. Scenery amazing. So much to see and do, after 2 weeks of holidays at the villa we did not want to leave! We will be returning.

The house is really nice and good. The courtyard gives you more space to play, park the car, have dinner and expand yourself. The furniture is basic and not very beautiful (is the only part of the house that could be improved, althought for the price is reasonable), but was enough for our needs. The house was very clean and confortable. The owners live next door and are very nice. And I almost forgot: the best part of the house is the location. Is right next to the best and most beautiful beach in Algarve. Is so close that you can go to the beach barefoot. This is huge. So, overall, I will recommend this house and come back if I have the chance.
Philip: "We could not imagine a better location, and the apartment was very comfortable, laid back and just what we needed."
Katharina: "We had a wonderful holiday at Maria´s house and would always recommend it to everyone who likes staying right at the beach, relax and lie in the sun. The view onto the sea is amazing even at night! Everything is in good conditions, clean and well kept. The apartment is big enough for four persons, Lagos is just a 10 minutes walk away, you can find everything you need there. Wish we could have stayed longer! We will definitley come back and enjoy it again, thank you!"
Joseph: "Great place to spend some time with family,take the short cut to town and you are there in 10-15 minutes."
Daniella: "The apartment was very spacious and in a great location! It is located just steps from a beautiful beach. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. Overall, a great value."
Michael, from Airbnb.com: "This little paradise by the sea is a perfect spot for small families. Two modern bathrooms, two comfortable bedrooms, a convenient kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher, a pleasant living and dining room and a delightful patio for playing games - all with an amazing view right onto one of the most beautiful beaches on the coast of Lagos - Praia Dona Ana. We felt fortunate to have stumbled upon this affordable gem. And the owner was such a wonderful and accomodating host. We highly recommend this little oasis on the cliffs above the sea."

The owner was very helpful. And when i arrived alex and lujba showed us around. Most things u need are there in the appartment. Don ana 1 of my favourate beaches and just a few steps away, i will diffently be booking again next year, thanks maria alex and lujba for a great stay.
We did not have a hard time finding the apartment once we arrived in Lagos. From the apartment it is only a short drive to the parking garage just outside of downtown Lagos. You can walk downtown from the apartment, but if you have a car the parking is inexpensive, well lit and has an attendant. We made good use of the apartment's gated parking area. We really appreciated the beach located directly in front of the apartment. It does get busy on the beach but you can always find space. We didn't need to visit the big beach on the other side of Lagos. Nearby you can also access other areas of the shoreline which have some stunning views. From the apartment it is only a 30 minute drive or so to Sagres, which has even more amazing views. The apartment itself was quite large and the 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom combination was perfect for 4 people. Although we didn't do laundry or cook at the apartment, all of the appliances seemed rather new. I can't imagine finding a better apartment located right in front of the beach. We basically had our own private resort. Thanks for the great stay!
Maria has a lovely space and she is both welcoming and charming. she met us and xplained the house, and there was even a caretaker on site in case of emergencies. all the elements were in order and the house is very cute. indeed it is directly above a beach and very near to many shops etc. however. i think it is very important to know that this house sits directly in the shadow of a giant condo / resort. this element may or may not be a concern for you?
Great Location, Nice apartmentCommunications with owner, directions, service on location were all great. The location is really fine, right above the beach and with a small coffee shop about 50 meters away. The house was very clean and the kitchen is well stocked with utensils, appliances, pots & pans, coffee maker, tea kettle, etc. Beds are very comfortable. Two bathrooms very convenient. A crib is provided for the many families that come here with small children. The sofas in the living room and on the porch could easily serve as single beds. There is a clothes washer and a dishwasher. The staff at the house are very courteous and helpful, we appreciated their assistance very much. A really good seafood restaurant a short distance away. There is a TV also, but we never used it. We were just two people, but this is a very good spot for families.
An unexpected picturesque beach front apartmentA delightful property, literally a stone's throw from the beach, and so much more authentic that the nearby apartment blocks. Lovely seafood restaurant nearby, and owner was very helpful- actually gave us the larger apartment to give us more room.I would recommend this place without reservation.

About the owner
The apartments I'm renting are both part of the larger family property I grew up in. Both apartments face the sea and are only a few metres from Dona Ana beach. While the bottom apartment with the patio is great for families, the top apartment is ideal for couples. The apartments are decorated simply but carefully, so that they will feel as 'homey' as possible.
