Manta Rota is a quiet village but has an eclectic mix of places to eat and enjoy coffee or drinks. The owner Graham provided great insight into the area prior to our visit which was extremely useful. The beaches are fantastic and there is a lot of history to be discovered. Nearby larger towns and within striking distance for which we used the recommended local taxi driver Nuno, again his local knowledge was most welcome. The townhouse is equipped with everything one could wish for and has three sun terraces which we loved. Kate the keyholder was always on hand in case of any difficulties and was extremely helpful. All in all, a fantastic holiday and a property that I would highly recommend. Thankyou, Graham, Kate and Nuno.

The location was fantastic - so close to the pretty boardwalk (great sunsets), the local eating and drinking haunts and the ferry to the beach. We really enjoyed a great prawn curry at Cantinho do pescador which is only a few minutes walk from the apartment. Vitamas Bar is really good for a lovely cup of coffee and breakfast. The apartment itself is in great condition and beautifully decorated. It is really spacious for two and would easily fit a child in as well. It is decorated and furnished like someone's home rather than a rental property! The best part of our stay was spending a lot of time at the beautiful swimming pool, I think it is a must to have a pool like this when booking an apartment. Overall we had a great time in this apartment and Cabanas. Mark made the whole booking process really straight forward and gave us loads of tips on where to go and what to see. Thanks for everything, see you next year.
