I took a group of friends to Gustavo's house, and as we life a bit far, everyone was tired and stressed by the long hours driving to get there. But as soon as we got to Gustavo's house, we were all amazed and impressed by the location and the house itself. It literally cheered us up.
We really wanted to stay longer, but we had to work the next days. We're definitely coming back.
Our group like to cook at home, have some beers, and enjoy the beach. The place is perfect! The shore is not crowded, there is plenty of space for jogging and to play beach games. And as soon as we wanted to eat, or take a cold shower, we would just walk into the house, which was extremely convenient.
Gustavo was very kind and explained everything about the house, its facilities, the neighbourhood and the cities around.
Everything was pretty clean and tidy. Every question we had about the house, we could give him a call and he would help us out straight away;
It was all perfect and I really recommend this place. Thanks a lot Gustavo!!!
Gustavo was a fabulously attentive and contentious host. We had the most amazing time staying in his gorgeous house, and exploring the area.
Very little to say, apart from how great our time there was, and a big thank you to Gustavo for looking after us so well :)
