The ground floor is set in a tranquil walled garden. The first and top floors have commanding views over the South Atlantic. The property is secluded within its own high walls and has gardens and a large swimming pool. The gardens around the pool at the rear and the front gardens are fully established. The accommodations are as follows - there are 3 separate bedrooms and the lounge with proper single beds - Master bedroom - first floor, ocean view terrace, AC and ceiling fan, queen bed with great mattress, large closet. Rear bedroom - first floor, mountain view, AC, ceiling fan, double bed and large closet. Pool bedroom - Ground floor, opens onto garden terrace, double bed with great new mattress, AC, ceiling fan, large closet, en suite shower room.

Your hosts, Eduardo and Philip, are a Brazilian/British married couple who live mostly in London, but for about 2 months of the year here. This is not a holiday house but our own home that we feel is a very special place and want to share with you
The property is very large. We have a caretaker, Eden, and a housekeeper, Rose who have their own fully self contained flat on premises. They can provide support for your stay if you so choose
We have two dogs and two cats. They all live outside, but will come in if you let them. The dogs are a useful security support but are super friendly. The cats are very friendly as well. Please advise us if you have allergy issues as we can usually house the cats with Eden and Rose
The beach is simply stunning - tranquil, yet occasionally wild. The sea directly in front of the house is not safe for swimming but if you walk a bit further to the right there is a protected bay which is safer and has a lifeguard. Always check with the locals about the water
For this reason we built the swimming pool, so you can relax on the beach but cool off and swim in the pool
Please note that the pool is 1 metre deep at its shallowest and 2 m at its deepest. Please be careful, particularly with children
The house has three kitchens so you have a choice of catering depending upon your mood and the weather. The top floor has a BBQ oven, fridge, sink and cutlery/crockery - so is great for a BBQ lunch, a dinner under the stars or just a beer in the hammocks. The main kitchen on the first floor is fully equipped and now with a brand new large fridge freezer - ideal for most catering. Finally we have a kitchen bar by the pool, this has a free-standing BBQ oven, fridge, sink and cutlery/crockery. The pool area is more protected than the top terrace
