Our visit was during the horrible rains of the last few months, so the owners were dealing w/ pumping water off of their property and the overall bad weather. Nonetheless, it was the only hotel of our 3 week trip where we would not return. Prior to booking, I had inquired on laundry services available. Our stay here was mid-trip, and I planned our packing around being able to wash everything over our 3 night stay. They do have a washer, it's not free, and there is no dryer. The owners assured me even in the damp weather everything would dry. Glad I didn't take their advise, on the 3rd day even our underclothes were damp when I had to pack them up. The apt was not too clean, nor stocked too well. We rented one of their largest apts. because we wanted one with a tub for soaking. We never got water hot enough to soak. I know utilities are very expensive but the just-warm water and the radiators coming on for only a few hours at night were a drag, it was quite cold. It's a good 35 minute walk to downtown. We had some inquiries that required a phone call to local businesses, but since neither owner speaks Portugeuse, we knew they would not be able to assist us. The value was fantastic. I imagine the pool and BBQs are great in the summer. Onsite, safe parking is very convenient. Best part was the bed was really comfortable, and being the only guests onsight it was quiet and we slept very well.
