Condo/Apartment
A stunning penthouse apartment on Boa Vista Island, with panoramic sea views, romantic and private. The property has been built using the colours and style of Portuguese colonial architecture, with a single central courtyard, typical of the colonial past, overlooked by romantic wooden balconies. A short stroll to the beach, beach restaurants and Sal Rei, and a short drive from the airport. Outside: large private terrace, with sea views, 4 large sofas, outside table and chairs etc. It hardly ever rains, so this is fantastic living space. A wonderful setting for a romantic holiday....A stunning penthouse apartment on Boa Vista Island, with panoramic sea views, romantic and private.

This review was shock to us, coming 9 months after these guests stayed. However, we remember that they arrived just a week after the freak torrential rain and floods on Boa Vista, when Casa Velha was surrounded by receding floodwaters. No wonder they have bad...More
