Stayed at Garupa 12-19 March 2015. Great location directly on the beach overlooking the bay as stated on the website. Comfortable with everything we needed. Anyana very helpful especially connecting to wifi! Great food at beach bars to the left. Interesting adventures in town... We would not enjoy staying in all inclusive complexes. Garupa gave us the opportunity to sample local life, great food and people. Great holiday
We spent one week each in Garoupa and Atum appartements in Sal Rei. We had a wonderful time. Both appartments are very well located, very close to the beach and within short walking distances to "downton" Sal Rei.
The internet pictures reflect the reality. The owner Chris was very helpful.
We definitely want to come back. Garoupa and Atum will be our first choice.

We, a group of four, stayed in Chris' and Ayanas appartement in July 2014 and it was just perfect. The appartement is quiet but well located to the town as well as to the beach. There is even WiFi and a mobilephone included which is very handy to organize tours. Be sure too book one with Claudio. He showed us some beatiful spots on the island and gave us good restaurant recommendations.
I can only recommend this appartement! If you stay on Boa Vista in an all inclusive resort you will miss so much of this island!
This apartment was absolutely great. It is very spacious and clean. Nicely decorated with huge patio overlooking bay. I was worried that it is located directly on the beach and it will be loud but nothing more wrong. It was an oasis of quietness. We loved the views it offers and close proximity to shops and main square where you can find local restaurants. Definitely it was best option for us as we did not want to stay somewhere away from city in closed all inclusive resort. And it paid back as it is only 5 minutes away from the main square and on Friday evening you can walk to listen locals playing live music and watch then dance. The apartment is fully protected with mosquito nets which is super important as there might be few mosquitoes on the island but it protects you from annoying flies. I am truly glad we decided to rent this apartment as I would not get the full picture of local lifestyle staying somewhere outside city. Next to the apartment you have also pharmacy and hospital which was handy, few banks, veggie market, Chinese grocery stores, butcher shop. and Shell station where locals say they have best cachupa in town - surprisingly.15 minutes away you can find Casa dos Pescados where locals sell fresh fish daily. The nice touch is when you book this apartment owners organize pick up from and to the airport. Maybe the only thing I would change is frying pan as it looks bit worn. If I will come back to Boa Vista I will stay here again.

It was only one week we spent at Ayana's and Cristiano's apartment, but this time was really unbevievable. People living on Boavista told us this apartment was the best place to stay for holidays on the island. Ayana helped us to make a whale watching tour on a catamaran and also a 4 wheel drive with super friendly Claudio to the most beautiful beaches of the island.
Everrything was perfect and normally this is one of the addresses you shoulnd't give away, because when you would like to come back, there is no more chance to get a free date;-)
