The location is already said a lot about. You're in hiking paradise and probably at the best spot in Cabo Verde. The rooms are nice, nothing really special, but nice. But the owner. She makes my review average. She's rather rude, acts as the queen of the property and treats customers as their seconds. Not that you realize when you... More

When your are planning to visit Santo Antao this is a must-see accommodation. It lies withing the mountains. Everything is well organized and the rooms (my room was Fogo) was spacious and had great views. Beds are a bit small but comfortable. Great hot shower en-suite. During the day you can reach the best hikes for most of them are... More

Stayed for 5 days and hit the highlights of Santo Antao from one of the most beautiful locations on the island. Just took private and shared taxis as well as walk from the door. Katrinja will advise what to do each day and she's never wrong. Lovely atmosphere in the house at breakfast and dinner. Trekkers paradise!

Casa das Ilhas is a very peaceful place. It is in a fairly remote location with good walking around and superb views. The resident cats and dogs are friendly and the hosts welcoming. The hosts run a very tight ship; however, we could have been provided with a bit more information when we arrived, such as time of dinner and... More

I stayed 3 nights with Madame Katelijne who runs the Casa das Ilhas Hotel and enjoyed myself throughout. My room was spacious, in fact more like an apartment and the setting of the hotel was charming perched on a hilltop with a steep access on a path thru sugar cane fields (porters can be arranged). Katelijne provided all services you... More

We stayed 2 nights and loved it, wished we'd stayed longer. Stunning location with a steep climb up to it, bags are taken up for you. Kate, the polyglot host was really helpful with walks, alugueres, or general info. Simple, tasty food around a communal dining table made for a sociable evening. Great hiking all around. We had cloudy weather... More

This is an amazing little place in the middle of the Paul valley. Very worth the hike and functions perfectly as a centre to explore the area. The view is just incredible. The rooms and the food are basic, nothing fancy but just what you need. I can imagine that once it gets busier the dining room might be a... More

We don't normally write recommendations for accommodations, however the very harsh and unfair comments of the Italian gentleman we read (brutta esperienca) made us. We happend to stay at casa das ilhas at the same time that he did. In our opinion he was rude and out of place in this super friendly casa familiar. It is true that this... More

My partner and I had a wonderful stay here. It's a great location for both hiking in the hills and getting to the main town. The owners, Kate and her associate have created a very special place, a peaceful home from home for well seasoned and friendly travelers. It's perched on a hill, 10 to 15 minutes walk from the...

The beauty of this place lies in it's simplicity and location. Situated in a beautiful valley and surrounded by the most fantastic landscape, these simple lodges allow you access to some of the best hikes available on the island. The hosts have a detailed knowledge of the area and are able to recommend various walks and hikes that allow you... More
