About the property

Comfortable, spacious, secluded, tranquil and only 2 minuets walk from the town

Inside the house…

The house accommodates 6 persons (8 max) and includes 1 double bedroom 1 twin bedroom, a mezzanine with 2 beds, a bathroom, a kitchen dining area, a large open plan living room and two outside terraces, one for sun and one for shade. The kitchen has everything that is required for cooking and enough space to sit with two tables and eight chairs, one inside and one outside. The living area has 2 sofas and a double sofa bed. The house has fan cooling in all rooms.

Outside the house…

There is a private garden with lovely views to the ocean. It has a mix of tropical plants with a sun terrace made from local sandstone. There is a raised shade terrace that has a table and chairs and a hammock. The shared environmentally friendly salt water infinity pool is 20m from the garden with perfect views over the sea. During much of the year you can see whales and flying fish from the terrace. It is completely quiet with no cars allowed, just the sound of the waves. There is access to a small-secluded beach accessible by steps built into the cliff, about fifty meters from the villa. A short walk through the village brings you out on the long white sandy main beach.

Your stay includes everything on the inventory (available on request) including bedding, house towels and beach towels. Also included is weekly cleaning, laundry (of bedding & towels), electricity, gas and water. You may also add a selection of activities such as diving, island tours, massage, super fast Wi-Fi and breakfast as optional extras.

About Philip

My name is Philip, that is me on the left :o) It is our aim to make your holiday as close to perfect as possible. We are passionate about Cape Verde, its people and its potential. If you haven’t been before, you must! If you have been, we are confident we can show you more. Cape Verde is an amazingly diverse holiday destination. Please ask any questions you like…

Philip purchased this villa in 2010

Why Philip chose Maio

The reason we decided to buy a house on the island of Maio is because it is the perfect ‘away from it all’ destination. It has sleepy towns with colorful little houses, hilly landscapes, limestone valleys, acacia forests and coconut palms and tranquility in abundance. There are long stretches of perfect white sandy beaches, warm clear waters with very little commercialism and the friendliest locals anywhere in Cape Verde.

What makes this villa unique

The unique benefits include a private garden with lovely views across the ocean. During much of the year you can see whales and flying fish from the terrace. It is completely quiet with no cars allowed, just the sound of the waves. If you want to take a swim the pool is only 10m away. It too had spectacular views; you can sit by the pool and watch the sun set over the neighboring island of Santiago.

Perfect Stay At A Wonderfull Place

  • 5 of 5

At Maio you can still feel as a traveler more than a tourist. Maio is a beautyfull little island. The resort of Stella Maris is very nice located. Phillips house is in the second row, has a beautiful view, a nice little garden and there is nothing missed for a great stay. We enjoyed our stay at Stella Maris 100%.

Lovely villa in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

This was my second – and I hope not my last – visit to this lovely villa in a superb location.

The villa is on a cliff top overlooking the Atlantic and ideally located between the small town centre of Vila do Maio and the beautiful beach at Ponta Preta. This beach has miles of golden sand and is almost deserted.

The villa is well appointed and has a beautiful garden, which includes a shady verandah as well as a sun terrace. There is a small infinity pool just a few steps from villa.

The villa is an ideal, ‘get away from it all’ location and I would complement the owner on the quality of the accommodation and the exceptional, personal service he offers.

I only return to places I like. It was so good the first time I went, I had to go back. I look forward to the next time.
