Superb View, Great Location, Helpful Host

  • 5 of 5

We rented condo #323 Cero Branco from the very helpful Esmeralda for March, 2017.

The condo is well equipped with refrigerator, full stove with convection oven, dishwasher and clothes washer.

This one bdrm condo is roomy, bright, with 3 sets of sliding glass doors that can make the condo completely open air to the large balcony that has both sun and shade areas.

The view of the ocean, beach and old town is spectacular.

It takes 8-10 minutes to walk downhill (including a double escalator) to reach the beach and the old town centre.

Another 8-10 minute walk in the opposite direction takes you to the giant Modelo Continente grocery store. Restaurants, post office, Spar mini-market, banks are all very close - a short walk.

We definitely recommend this condo - a perfect location! Lots of parking on the street.

Ola e obrigado Esmeralda.

Fab holiday

  • 4 of 5


The owners have a few apartments at the Cerro Branco but we stayed and would highly recommend this one..

The apartment itself is lovely and big fab decor and everything you could want including deck chairs on the balcony and candles... real home from home.. great for the 4 of us...

(If there was any negs it would be that there's no double bed in the bedroom, and no aircon in there)... aircon only in the living space..

The view is to die for.. sea and old town are wonderful..

The pool area is kept clean and tidy. Usually plenty of sun beds to go round.. our boys loved it...

The old town is wonderful and the walk into town is an easy 5 mins and if u have a car parking is usually ok apart from when they have any sort of fiesta on in the square then it's a bit of a drive round the block a few times.. good that it's a one way system though.. easy..

All in all a great stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay again in this apartment...

Thank you

Esmeralda and Joao...

Great stay but it was spoiled by terrible Beds

  • 3 of 5

The apartment #117 is in a great location and its got pretty much everything you will need to enjoy your holiday. There are some points the owners should fix though! then it will get 5 stars.

1. Get new Beds, the existing ones are the most uncomfortable Beds we have ever slept in.

2. We stayed for 10 nights and had the same set of Bed linen for the entire stay! there should be two sets for this long a stay.

3. The spare Towels are old and very rough, they should be replaced also

4. The Pillows are just as bead as the Beds please replace them!

The above points spoiled our stay slightly as you need a good nights sleep. You cannot get this at apt 117 as it is now sorry.

Spacious, Great Location, Superb Views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week at the end of September. We were so very pleasantly surprised when Esmeralda opened the door to the apartment as it has been refurbished since the photos on the listing were taken. The colours and furnishings are gorgeous. The apartment is very well equipped, very comfortable and really spacious. The terrace is amazing with fabulous views and both sunny and shady areas to enjoy. It took only 5 or so mins to walk down to the beach and old town. There's also a safe and washing machine that aren't mentioned in the listing. We can definitely recommend this apartment and I hope that we can visit again. Thank-you Esmeralda and Maria

This apartment, located high above the old town was ideal as a holiday let with magical ocean and old town views. It is extremely large and has everything needed for a self catering holiday. There are local and international supermarkets within walking distance. The owners could not do more to make you welcome. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment.

a lovely apartment and well recommended

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Maria who was very helpful and told us about the property and area. The apartment was amazing and newly refurbished the view was amazing, the pool was set up every morning with sun beds and covers and umbrellas. The whole complex was well kept and clean and I could not fault this holiday. We will without doubt be back as the whole process was seamless and perfect from the initial enquiry to end of the holiday. Thanks for looking after us and if you are thinking about staying then look no further.
