From the moment we booked our stay at this beautiful villa until we had to leave we had the most amazing holiday. Chris was so helpful with every aspect from booking the accomodation to arranging the airport transfers and made sure we had everything we needed during our visit. We were met at the villa by a lovely local lady Arina who went through everything with us and was so helpful to us during our stay when we needed a pushchair for our sick child. We were a group of 7 (4 adults, 1 teen and 2 kids) and the villa was very spacious and comfortable, the kitchen was fully equipped, we felt right at home. The kids loved the pool. It was only minutes away from the beautiful marina and so quiet and peaceful at night which was ideal. We are looking forward to returning to Casa Jolie, Thank you Chris & Team. The O'Shea & O'Connor families.
From booking this villa to getting ready to depart Everything was outstanding! Chris the owner went out of his way to make sure we were ok. Apart from the normals like the villa being absolutely Perfect for ourselves & our 2 kids & my parents to letting us know where to rent our car and all the usual stuff! BUT on flight my 5 year old was sick and we had to rush her to hospital- it was scarlet fever so taxis back & forth cost a fortune as we had to go to portmaoi twice with her. We then got a car but had never driven foreign before & we were so nervous! Then by day 3 we had to go with our 1 year old and even do the service in these hospitals is outstanding they misdiagnosed him and sent us home. That night after speaking to Chris the owner he told us we were not to drive but to ring him immediately if he got worse and he would take my husband ( my parents were not out at this stage ) and our son so I could stay with my other sick child ! He totally relaxed us as we hadn't a clue where we were let alone drive to a foreign hospital in the middle of the night!!
We made it through the night keeping the temp at bay & went following morning ! Mothers instinct told me he too had scarlet fever. After a few days it all settled & Chris arrived with ice pop for the patients !
The rest of the holidays was just amazing. Beaches are spotless & golden ! Get the pool heated . Well worth it !
Thanks so much Chris x
We chose Casa Jolie for a two week family holiday in May. From first contacting Chris the owner everything was fantastic. There were two families both of us with young children. All areas of the house both inside and outside were spotless and had everything you needed to make you feel at home. The villa was modern and well equipped. With ample living space both inside and out. We paid for the pool to be heated which was a must for May, but well worth the money, would advise all with children to do so. I would recommend anyone to visit Casa Jolie, it was central to Lagos with the Marina 10 mins walk away and the centre of town less than 20. Lagos itself is a beautiful town with lots to do and plenty of lovely restaurants to eat in.. All in all a fantastic holiday and we will be back..

Casa Jolie has everything you could possibly want. Very comfortable modern accommodation and an extremely well fitted out kitchen. We had our grownup children and a 3 month old grandchild with us so we needed somewhere very quiet but within easy reach of many restaurants and nightlife. Portafinos restaurant was our favourite.. Casa Jolie ticked the boxes. Taxis to and from town cost approx 5 euros so cheap as chips.
Chris provided us with an extremely professional service from start to finish together with a very comprehensive brochure. Many thanks for a great holiday!
I stayed at Casa Jolie in September 2014 with a group of 8 friends. The villa met our needs perfectly - the pool and outdoor area is ideal for enjoying the sun, and we were close enough to the beach and town (which is about a 10-15min walk) that we could pop out whenever we liked. The local supermarket is a short drive and there is a small convenience shop around the corner also. I would recommend Casa Jolie to any group looking for a villa in Lagos!
