Exciting apartment that defines it on the seafront is reductive being directly in contact with the sea, the night sleeps cradled by the sound of the sea. As part of a residence, guests can use all the condominium services such as swimming pool, private beach with sun loungers, common tropical garden with comfortable sofas for a relaxation area served by free wifi and parking. The apartment is located on the third floor and is serviced by a lift, even the apartment has wifi.
“From the very start, I cannot fault this apartment. Mirco got in contact beforehand to arrange all the details from the pick up at the airport to meeting Genilda at the apartment. All our questions regarding the apartment and surrounding area were answered promptly. The property itself is beautiful and modern. You have a very good sized apartment that has everything you might need. The living/dining area looks out onto the stunning coastline and as the area is not "touristy" it is very peaceful and unspoilt. It can be windy sat out on the balcony but some nights we went down to the pool area as there are tables and chairs down there. There is also security although at this point I would mention that at no time during our stay did we feel unsafe. Genilda met us at the apartment when we checked in and went through everything we needed to know. Helder met us at the airport in his taxi and took us to the apartment for the equivalent of around £10. He was also on hand to take us back and fore the town which worked out at around £2.50 one way. The town of Mindelo had a good choice of food shops/markets, restaurants and some other general shops. If you do choose to walk it takes just under an hour and is around 3 miles but a good part of the way you are walking alongside the beach on good pathways. All in all I would recommend this place if you want somewhere that is modern, peaceful and off the beaten track. The pool area has plenty of good sun loungers and although there is a private beach close by, it's not a beach we used. There was a gorgeous beach just past the town of Mindelo which was much nicer. I must add that during this time, the Covid19 virus was closing airports and causing disruptions. Mirco and Genilda were supportive during this time.”

“This is the perfect location for your stay: very close to the centre, the harbour and the beach, very quiet, in a safe neighbourhood. The apartment is amazing: comfortable, huge, good bed and furniture, tastefully decorated and very clean. It is on the 3rd. (highest) floor of a small building, 38 steps, from the sea just a little bit slope-up. Between the livingroom and kitchen is a spacious, shady roofterrace with good seats and table. Nice place to relax outside with view on the houses and feeling the wind blow. Even by high temperatures the apartment stays comfortably cool inside. The contact with Vanda and Emanuel was very good, quick, friendly and helpful. Highly recommended! Carla and Jan, Holland”

“I booked this property purely based on the view on the first picture and we were not disappointed! I wanted somewhere special and private for me and my sister to chill out for my 50th Birthday, Karen's ocean view home was perfect. Two enormous patio doors look out onto the sea. The accommodation comprises a large sitting room diner/kitchen (me and sister moved the dining table so we could eat and look out of one door and still benefit from the seating in the second door, the open plan space was that accommodating! Bedrooms - all three had double beds and fitted wardrobes, there was one ensuite shower / WC off the main ocean facing bedroom (my room) and the second bathroom was off the sitting room. Both have shower cubicles, this is the only thing that renders the property not really suitable for disabled guests as there is a downstairs bedroom and access is easy from the car parking area. All towels and bedding were supplied and although limited, we found the kitchen amenities adequate. There is an upper terrace which we benefited from when we BBQed our fish. Proper sun trap too. There is lots to do around the area if you plan to make your own entertainment and have a car (essential). We went into Mindelo most days which is a 25 minute drive. At this time of the year (Feb) the sun goes down behind our mountain about 4.30 at the house and yet is still high in the sky in Mindelo so we'd get more sunshine on Mindelo beach. Saramansa for wind surfing is an amazing people watching place and we went to Baia Dos Gatas for swimming. Again, in Feb I think it is technically winter so it can be cool in the evenings. Its also windy, which means you can burn easily as its deceptive. The roads are strangely very good despite being made mostly from cobble stones! Very quiet and drivers are not usually in much of a rush. The house was spotlessly clean, Dilson, the house manager was very attentive and not at all pushy, he helped us change Euros to escudios and got us a 4x4 car to rent. Also arranged to get the tripping hot water fuse fixed on the same day. Told us places he recommended too. He is also a hiking guide so very useful. We went for a two night stay on Santo Antoas which was for my actual birthday treat. I loved our stay in the house by the ocean, there is nothing to rival waking up to the sound of the sea.”
