I had the great privilege to spend 10 days in this guesthouse in Santa Teresa. I love the bustling vibe of the city and can enjoy that even more when I can retreat to a home with peace and quiet. So it was perfect! At night you'll just be listening to the crickets.
I have really enjoyed coocking in the fully equiped kitchen, having a drink or doing yoga on the enormous terace and just chilling in the hammock. Not to mention waking up, opening the window and saying "bom dia!" to Christ looking over you from the top of the hill!
As said, I also love the city life, for this, there are three busses taking you down to various parts of the city centre. So you're always connected. Moreover it is simply fun to take the bus, look at the marvellous neighbourhood and listen to all the chatting (sometimes even singing) around you. I also always felt super safe.
Then there's the host, Marjon. I just love her. You can always hop into her place with any question. She'll give you all the info and tips you need and make sure that you have a great time.
