Attention to detail does not go unnoticed here. On our arrival at the airport we are met by a friendly person, Paula made sure and waited for us to get our car rental that Josie arranged. A short drive as we followed Paula to the house; a wide automated gate opened up and much to our surprise what a large property everything nice and inviting. As soon as we got out of the car, we inhaled the fresh air and felt the ocean breeze. The house was freshly cleaned, supper equipped the best pots and frying pans we've ever come across in any rental; also the quality white linens on the beds where crisp smelling so fresh and so inviting. The reception was topped with a lovely meal, and the nice touch of fresh flowers on lovely candelabra. Our group of four were very happy with this accommodation, made for a very easy getting around. The ladies in our group were very happy here and without hesitation we recommend it to all.

House has a very private and secure location with in-yard parking space. Apartment has a wonderful balcony (famous sun-room) which opens to the garden and we really enjoyed having our breakfasts there. Kitchen is very well equipped, bathroom is spacious and comfortable, bed linen and towels are excellent quality, mattress is very comfortable. Apartment is very clean with fresh flowers in vases. There is also a moisture collector machine which in September was really very useful. The only shortage I can think of was that kitchen had a very little natural light. Muito obrigado Antonio!

So you will not be disappointed by coming here. The house has all the amenities, spacious rooms, a large wooded garden well maintained. A very good situation that allows hiking, swimming and rest. A very very nice place.
