Nanette Penthouse - Elegant, Spacious, Stunning Sea Views

Apartment in Maio with patio
The Penthouse is one of the most beautiful apartments in Maio. Elegant, spacious, modern, with a large terrace and a fantastic view of the ocean.
Tall rooms (which is great for the climate!).
Large windows - an extraordinary panoramic view.
Good position: the Penthouse is located at the edge of the pretty town of Vila do Maio, a few steps from the center and 2 small supermercados. Just a few minutes walk to the beautiful white sand beaches.

120 m² living space + 50 m² terrace

Living space:
2 bedrooms (with wardrobes), one with a large double bed 2 x 2 m.
In the second bedroom is another double bed (1.40 x 1.90 m) - so the apartment offers enough space for 3 or even 4 people.

Mosquito nets and 2 fans on request (usually not necessary!).

2 bathrooms (both with shower stalls, an additional bathroom with bidet).

Large living room with kitchen (with cupboards, gas oven, dishwasher, fridge with freezer, coffee machine ...).
Flat screen television.

1 storage room with a large shelf.

Beautiful view over the roofs of Vila do Maio: 250 (!) blue degree sea horizon Sometimes you see whales go by - and dolphins!

On the large terrace (50 m²) there is a white wooden canopy, a white seat bench, a tiled steel table, 2 sun loungers and an outdoor shower.

In this beautiful penthouse, you do not live in a tourist ghetto, you live near the life of a Cape Verdean village. But always "above all", with a spectacular view - like a belvedere!


You do not need a car (as the beaches and shops are close), but you can always rent one, for excursions or a tour of the island.
The price of your stay includes electricity, gas and water, cleaning of the apartment and change of bed linen and towels once a week (covered by the one-time cleaning fee).
The washing of your personal clothes is 1.000 CVE (or 9 Euro) for a wash.
All adults over 16 are obliged to pay Cape Verde's tourist tax:
€ 2 per person per night for up to 10 nights. This amount will be collected upon arrival by us or a friend.

! Also long term rental possible (on request, at a reduced price)!

The trip: To reach Maio, you must first fly to Praia / Santiago. Either via Lisbon or with Royal Air Maroc via Casablanca. Three times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) a plane (Binter Cabo Verde) flies from Praia to Maio in 10 minutes (in the summer months twice). There is also a ferry from Praia to Maio (normally Wednesday, Friday and Sunday), the crossing takes 3h40.
Rooms open to patios. Accommodations offer separate dining areas. Refrigerators and coffee/tea makers are provided. Bathrooms include showers and bidets. Housekeeping is provided on a limited basis.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

Wunderschöner Aufenthalt in Nanettes Penthouse
Schon vor unserem Aufenthalt wurden wir mit detaillierten und sehr liebevollen Informationen von den Gastgebern versorgt, sodass wir uns vor Ort super zurechtfinden und uns schon vorab ein wenig in Maio verlieben konnten. Auch die Betreuung vor Ort, wie der Transfer und die Schlüsselübergabe verliefen reibungslos und Fragen wurden zeitnah beantwortet. Die Lage des Appartements ist perfekt: ca. 2 Gehminuten zu den Supermärkten, 2 bis 10 Minuten zu verschiedenen Restaurants und 15 Minuten zum Hauptstrand. Wer es einsamer mag, geht den Hauptstrand weiter entlang bis hinter den Fähranleger oder an den westlich gelegenen Strand (beide ca. 30 Gehminuten und man ist quasi den ganzen Tag allein am Strand). Die Nachbarn sind alle sehr freundlich und grüßen (unbedingt mal 2 Häuser weiter bei "Schascha" alias Sandra essen gehen - sie grillt abends immer für ihre Familie, Nachbarn und neue Gäste). Das Appartement ist sehr sauber und gepflegt und super ausgestattet. Der Ausblick von der Dachterrasse ist mindestens so schön wie auf den Fotos und auch die Außendusche (sogar mit warmen Wasser) ist ein Traum. Das Appartement ist geräumig und hell und die Betten sehr bequem. Wir können dieses Appartement wärmstens weiterempfehlen und hoffen auf ein baldiges Widersehen. Nochmal vielen lieben Dank den super Gastgebern, Tamara und Holger
