Rosy's place is simply fantastic. A perfect retreat to wind down and relax. Rosy is always on hand to cater for your specific needs and the location is simply perfect. Her restaraunt also serves some of the best pasta you'll ever eat.

We had a great stay in this cabin and our hosts were friendly, relaxed and kind. Rosy' breakfast was great and the coffee was delicious! The area is quiet which is perfect for us but if you are looking for wifi and state of the art facilities this isn't for you.

My husband and I had the most relaxing time in Boa Vista - which was exactly what we needed! The pictures don't do this piece of paradise justice; the beach is beautiful with clear blue waters and turtles swimming past throughout the day. The room is fresh and clean with everything we needed and Rosy and family were fabulous hosts. They helped my husband secretly organise a birthday cake to be made by a local cafe, reserved us a table at a local restaurant and booked me in a relaxing massage. Wonderful! Although we opted for a mostly relaxed holiday, they offered to take us surfing and the opportunity to kite/windsurf was always available. On our final day, Attila took us out on the catamaran, despite the choppy seas and we kept our eyes open for whales. There are some excellent local bars and restaurants if you want to eat out and we indulged heavily in the freshly caught fish; gorgeous! I would fully recommend staying here, ideal location just outside of the town so it's generally very quiet. No street lights, so take a torch or risk walking over hundreds of crabs. There was one night when a local party kept us awake until 3am - very loud. But otherwise, perfect. Thank you Rosy for your fabulous hospitality!

After hiking Santo Antao for a week, our stay with Rosy and Atila was just what we needed. Rosy and Atila made us feel welcome from the start. They have a really amazing beach cabin. The bed is great, the tatami better, and the hammock best. With the wind howling around the house and the sand between your toes you feel close to nature. With the beach on your doorstep, restaurant around the corner and their dive centre next door it is easy to select the right mix of activities and chill-out time. We learned a lot about the island and the Boa Vistans while hanging out on the porch chatting to Rosy and Atila. They were also very helpful in arranging transport and excursions. Highly recommended! Thanks for a brilliant week!

We had a lovely week in the hut. Rosie and Atilla were very welcoming and great hosts. The room is huge and position is fantastic - just like the pictures. No hot water was bearable as the weather was hot and so we managed a week with cold showers. Bed was very comfortable and the hammocks a joy. We did hear a couple of loud parties during the week which kept us awake but most of the time it was just the sound of the sea and the occasional donkey! The town is a 10 min walk away and there are a few restaurants serving wonderful fish at a very reasonable price. Atilla took us out on the hobi cat one day in search of whales, which was excellent fun! Unfortunately we didn't see any whales but we did spot turtles right infront of us whilst lying on our own reserved loungers! A great week - we were sad to leave.

Rosy was a wonderful host, warm, kind and friendly. She made us feel really welcome. The location of the beach hut could not be better or closer to the sea front. Idyllic, peaceful and calm. Yes its basic, but that is exactly its charm. If you are looking for hot water and internet this is not for you. If you want to get in touch with nature, completely escape and if water based activities is your thing this is the ideal place to be. We loved it
