Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello Sue & Steve, We had a lovely holiday at Casa Sunnyside,and thank you for taking the time and care to enquire how we got on.

We thought the house was beautiful, Very nicely furnished and very comfortable,It suited us very well the kitchen was excellent and well equipped the lady's that did the cleaning made a very good and thorough job of it. One of the best things about the house is how convenientto Lagos town it is, We fell in love with the place in fact Luz barely got a look in. RESTAURANTS Limited to faddy children Our favourite's were the Fontinaria in Espiche and the O'Poco in Luz.

BEACH'S Praia da Bordeira at Carrapatateira is probably the most amazing beach I have ever seen,and if you have other guests with children do recomment it, our children 4 and 5 years old had a whale of a time,the stream running down to the sea through the sand dunes is warm and they were so happy to play and pretended to be on a desert island.We also liked Praia Meia beach Lagos.

Lovely villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect villa for our family holiday. Spotlessly clean when we arrived with a beautiful garden and big swimming pool. It was well maintained by a visit from maids to clean, gardeners and pool cleaners once a week.

The swimming pool is at the front of the property but is screened with planting so you feel it is private enough.

The air con in the bedrooms and comfortable beds made for a good nights sleep.

The villa had everything you could need for a family, even golf clubs are supplied!

The area surrounding the villa is a quiet residential one. We used the local Aldeia Azul resort every day for meals, evening drinks, tennis and a football pitch for the kids. It is a couple of minutes stroll from the villa and definately enhanced our holiday.

Praia de Luz was pretty and we enjoyed a few restaurants. Booking a day in advance is definitely needed.

We got taxis into Luz for our evening meals which cost around €10 each way.

A car is very useful if you want to explore more than just Luz.

Luz is fairly quiet but a good base to explore other coastal towns and villages.

We had a boat trip to watch Dolphins which was with "beach hut water sports" on the beach front. It was amazing!

Thank you for sharing this awesome villa. Highly recommend.

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

Its a lovely villa with a great pool,and gardens, in a very quiet location. The villa has everything you require to make your stay as good as it can be. There is plenty of very nice restaurants in Lagos however if you want to use the built in barbecue then you must visit the Fish Market in Lagos. Beautiful beaches nearby too.

Super Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well equipped villa. We had a very enjoyable comfortable week. The outside space is very good for enjoying the pool and eating in the sunshine. I would recommend car hire if staying more than one week. We managed with taxis. There is a new family resort one minute walk away, which is excellent for food and drinks. We went to Lagos from the villa only 10 minutes in taxi, it's worth a visit. Luz is closer, but this was the only disappointment of the holiday. The villa is in a very quiet area.

Everything you need and more

  • 5 of 5

Have just come back from a great weeks stay at this lovely villa. The location is great and very easy to get into Luz and Lagos. The villa itself is well presented and has everything you need. In fact when you thought it was not there if you looked into the utility room (or as one of our party named it. The room of a thousand things), you found it. You can tell the owners use this villa as it is very homely and not just a holiday let. We had such a nice time we are looking to book for next year.

A fantastic homely villa, you won't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family holiday at this villa.

It is ideally situated and close to some lovely beaches and restaurants. The villa is extremely well equipped, there is ample space for dining either inside or out and plenty of space to lounge and watch TV, DVD's etc if this is your preference, good wifi.

Very large kitchen with every appliance you could want on holiday and an excess of crockery, cutlery, glasses etc. Great poolside space, the bulk of the holiday was spent around the pool with plenty of loungers and BBQ. Great management service who acted immediately on any request. A very homely feel to the place and we didn't want to leave.

Check out the beef chop at the "Look Steak Café" in Praia Da Luz next to the Famous Kelly's Bar.
