Stella Maris villa Maio has three bedrooms (V3), together with tropical garden and perched on a cliff top with sea views. There is a shared salt water infinity pool together with lovely beaches. The house is comfortable, spacious, secluded, tranquil and unspoilt… Travel to Maio is via Praia, the capital of Cape Verde.

Inside the property
The property sleeps six people and comprises three bedrooms (1 king size; two each with two single beds), one bathroom, a kitchen dining area, a large open plan living room and two outside terraces (one for sun together with one for shade). The bedrooms comprise one double with sea views (as seen in photo), one with two single beds, together with a mezzanine floor that has two single beds, ideal for kids (Total 6 beds + 1 double sofa bed). The kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed for self-catering. For outside dining on the terrace there is an additional table with four chairs.

In the large open plan living room there is a double sofa bed, two sofas, and an LG smart TV. The TV has satellite channels, internet, Skype, Facebook (+ other apps). There is also a bluetooth sound bar, which can play music from your bluetooth device and also works with the TV. There is free wifi and also a portable router, for which a sim can be purchased from the local telecoms shop. The house has fan cooling in all rooms and windows have fly screens.

Outside the property
There is a large covered terrace for shade, which is in addition to a separate sun terrace. There are two soft sun loungers, two hammocks and the private garden has a mix of tropical plants. Due to its location and aspect it is sheltered from the prevailing trade winds so it is warm, even in the winter months. It is also exceptionally quiet because no traffic is allowed in the development. On occasions you may see whales or flying fish from the garden. There is private access to a small-secluded sandy beach* accessible by occupants of residence Stella Maris down steps built into the cliff about fifty meters from the villa.

* Please note: at certain times of the year the waves in Cape Verde can be quite large, therefore this can make bathing in the sea challenging. However this doesn’t normally last more than a day or two. Sometimes under these conditions the sand can shift quite dramatically. The small beach close to the villa usually has less sand June to November and conversely much more sand December to May. The main beach (Bitxe Rotxa) in Vila do Maio (8 min) and Ponta Preta beach (12 min) always have lots of sand.

The infinity pool is shared with the other residents of Stella Maris and is close to, and visible from the house – just 20m away. Although shared, the pool is not heavily used. You will often have it to yourself. It looks west over the ocean, so it is a lovely place to relax and watch the sunset. To the right of the pool is the little beach and just below the pool is a rocky ledge where you can go fishing or snorkeling depending on the sea conditions. If you are a strong swimmer and have fins it is possible to swim right round to the main beach to the right, or even up to another tiny beach to the left that can only be accessed from the sea. We suggest you only do this if the sea is calm though.

Each time a guest stays we ask how we can improve, or whether there is anything we can add. As a result we added: two additional beds for kids (mezzanine); a baby’s cot; a smart TV; a bluetooth sound system; a large safe for a laptop; hammocks; sun loungers; a sun terrace; a beautiful private tropical garden; direct access to the pool; extra security. To the best of our knowledge no other accommodation offers all of these.

What’s included
The price of your stay includes everything on the inventory (available on request). We put out 1 shower towel and 1 beach towel per person, but if you need more please ask. Also included is electricity, gas and water plus the essentials for the start of your holiday such as, water, soap, shower gel, washing up liquid, toilet paper.

Some guests prefer privacy, whilst others prefer a regular linen change, so if your stay is longer than one week, an additional weekly linen change can be requested at no extra cost. This can be arranged with the house manager on arrival.

Extra charges
Laundry for personal items is €8.5 for one wash (5kg).

You may also add a number of different activities (diving, fishing, island tours, etc)

Cape Verde Tourist Tax is payable by all adults over the age of 16. The cost is €2 per person per night to a maximum of 10 nights. This will be collected by the House Manager on arrival.

What to expect
Cape Verde is not a wealthy country and Maio is a charming, but simple island. With this in mind it is wise not to expect too much luxury. The house is nice and we have tried to supply everything you need, it is well equipped and comfortable. But outside life is simple and basic for many.

Great spot in Maio

By Diego on 29-Jan-2022

Great spot in Maio to relax and explore the island. Probably worth investing in longer stays to fully appreciate the relaxing atmosphere (we had only 3 days). Perfect anyways for our needs, ideal and safe for kids. Maio wild beaches are fantastic!

Everything we could ask for and more!

By Francis on 03-Dec-2021

We have visited Cape Verde many times but this was our first trip to Maio and we would highly recommend both the island experience and Cliff Top Villa. This accommodation was everything we could ask for and more. Carrolyn is a gem and spared no effort to ensure our visit was enjoyed, we will certainly be back. Cape Verde is a wonderful country and visitors would do well to remember that it consists of ten islands, each one unique. From now on we intend to make Santiago our base but visit one more each time.
