Thanks so much for a comfortable stay. Bed is super comfortable and the fully stocked fridge was wonderful to arrive to. We loved having sole access to the beautiful pool and great selection of books. We were also very grateful for the sun umbrella and beach mats - so handy! Currently no system in the house to play music so bring along a speaker if you fancy some tunes! The cupboard and drawer space in the bedroom was great. Best to have a car to get to and from the house as cycling would be hot and hard up those hills! The local roads are great to run along but go early as it can get hot! It's very peaceful up at the house with no traffic or any other noise for that matter. Christine, John and Henry were great hosts; respectful of privacy and warm and attentive if needed. Thank you!

Well, let's be straight. The place is lovely as John and Christine are. It's a very good place to have some rest, swimming if you want to, reading. And about that, an English bookshop in Lagos belongs to John where you can find a lot of books! Moreover it's not far from Lagos where there are beautiful landscapes, beaches, and where you can go out for eating or drinking a beer. I guess that renting a car is a plus for the journey, otherwise there are buses 3 times a day or you can order taxis for not so much money to go in the town Lagos.

What a gem! The cottage was just perfect and it was so fabulous to arrive to a fully-stocked fridge. Christine and family made our stay so enjoyable and comfortable, and the added extras such as toys and paddling pool for our little boy were very much appreciated. The location was great for us, and to have sole use of the pool felt like a real treat. We'll certainly be returning if we get the chance!

I do not give 5-star reviews lightly; I believe 5 stars not only mean that everything went according to expectations, but rather that the host went above and beyond their duty in order to provide an unforgettable stay. In this case, it was a very easy decision. Christine, John, and their family, made our vacation a real bliss. We were able to relax from the very beginning, when we found a full fridge that allowed us to rest after the long trip instead of rushing to the supermarket. The place is superb. Quiet, cozy, well furnished, it is not easy to find such a great house at such a competitive price. In the end, it was the Westropp's that made the difference. They went an extra mile (and a hundred more) to make sure we were happy with our stay, informed about the best places to go, and that the only thing we had to do was relax. In summary, book now before somebody else does it. You will not regret it, we definitely did not.
