“Charming house in historical location with small deficits”
Reviewed 6 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Cozy House is a three-floor house with two bed/living rooms, a large kitchen, a bathroom and a roof terrace with a splendid view over the old town of Lagos. The house has a cozy & clean atmosphere and is furnished with a style of simple elegance.

However be warned that during the winter months it can be quite chilly and if you turn the heaters on and are using - for example - the cooking facilities at the same time...then the electricity system of the household might be overloaded -> therefore use it with special care and hope for mild weather ;-)

But as a holiday apartment for the warmer seasons it most certainly is an excellent choice and the authentic location invites you to explore the town and walk to the seaside with its harbour.

All in all a great value for money and for a pleasant stay in spring, summer and (early) autumn we would definitely recommend it without hesitation :-)

“Excellent house, excellent location for Lagos”
Reviewed 12 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Had a great week at Cozy House. The roof terrace was a delight and we spent many pleasant ours enjoying it!

We planned to stay in a property located inside the Old Town, so even in lower season, the area would not seem too quiet. This is exactly how it turned out. There was lots of local people living in the area and there was always friendly voices to be heard around the place (not intrusive though) and all the shops and restaurants were just a short walk away.

“Wonderful house in excellent location”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Having stayed in an apartment in the old town before we were delighted to find a house there & we weren't disappointed, Cozy House is spotlessly clean in a great location with everything you need if you can do without wi-fi & if you really can't both restaurants nearby have it & Citizen Cafe don't mind you using it even when not eating there, very nice people. The roof terrace is wonderful with amazing views across the rooftops of the old town, great place for eating out, however, it was very windy when we were there so not possible all of the time but we still made the most of it anytime we could.
The beds were very comfortable, bathroom perfect & everything you need in the kitchen. Our only problem was that the washing machine/dryer wasn't working & we needed it as we didn't bring enough warm clothes as in jeans etc., I got in touch Claudio via sms & that evening when we got back the house had been cleaned with fresh sheets & towels supplied which was great, however, the machine was never fixed, not so important but we could have done with it.
The location is brilliant as you can go everywhere on foot and the beaches are only about a 10 minute walk, great local shops all around you for bread etc., but especially the fresh fruit.
All in all great holiday & I'd definitely go back.

“Beautiful authentic house in the centre of Lagos!”
Reviewed 21 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

When we came in the house we knew that our stay in Lagos was going to be perfect. 2 big bedrooms (1 of them even has a hammock), a nice bathroom, an equipped kitchen and even a rooftop terrace (it was a little bit cold in the evenings because of the wind). Everything was very clean and the communication with the owner went very good. The house is situated in the centre of Lagos, we went everywhere on foot. The only thing we missed was WiFi but everything else was totally perfect.
