We were lucky that during our stay we were the only couple in the whole villa, so we had the villa for ourselves, Sofia was really helpful and understanding and a perfect host, the villa is in a quiet location but only 5 min walk from the beach and main amenities.

My boyfriend and I stayed there for 4 days and had a great time! Villa Joaninha has a great view and is 2 minutes walking from the beach. Very clean and cozy. We highly recommend it. Sofia and her husband are the best hosts!

Villa owner was very hospitable and really wanted to do as much as possible to make our stay easy and enjoyable. There were no other guests there the night we stayed so we had the entire villa to ourselves. Amazing location--great view and just a brief walk down to the main street and beach. We really enjoyed our stay there!
