The apartment was great. We were welcomed by Denis, and later by Jonas, when we arrived and shown to the apartment, which had a few nice unexpected extras, like filtered water and a stovetop coffee filter. The apartment was spacious and had a nice view over the garden and to the hills in the distance. It is located on a very quiet street. It takes about 25 minutes to walk to Praia Mole and the same to Praia Joaquina. Overall, a really relaxing place to stay.
Me and my friend stayed in secret bay apartment 3 which was absolutely fantastic. The apartment is well kept, clean, has alll the essentials and is in a beautiful location.
What made our stay extra special was the hosts. The hosts were (Denis and Jonas) hospitable, welcoming, provided lots of local information and helped us with any request we had .
We look forward to returning in the future. Thank you once again
This was my first Airbnb experience and it was great! Everything was correct and exactly as advertised. Denis and Jonas responded very quickly to our needs (for example, drinking water). The apartment is nice and quiet, perfect for relaxing -- and being within walking distance (no need for bus) from 3 excellent beaches is a big plus. We enjoyed the DVD collection, too.
Denis welcomed me when I arrived. I had one of the upper apartments. It was like seen on the photos. The view was nice from the balcony.with hammock was beautiful. The whole stay was very laid back. I recommend renting a car to get to all beaches in Florianopoliis.
Denis and Jonas were great hosts who were easily available for questions. Beautiful apartment, and would come back in a heart beat. Thanks guys!!
Denis y Jonas fueron excelentes anfitriones. Nos ayudaron en todo lo que necesitamos para hacer nuestra estadía más cómoda y nos hicieron sentir muy cómodos en todo momento.
El departamento tiene todas las comodidades para pasar una vacaciones geniales y sentir a la vez la calidez de estar en una casa en la que se puede desayunar en una terraza encantadora escuchando sólo el sonido de los pájaros. Todas las instalaciones funcionan correctamente. Tranquilo, silencioso y muy cercano a playas geniales como Mole, Joaquina y Galeta.
Muy bien de precio también por lo que recomiendo ampliamente el sitio para pasar unas vacaciones.
The secret is out! Best place to stay whilst visiting the beautiful Florianopolis.
Located ideally between gorgeous Joaquina beach and Mole beach. The apartments are a great base and are equipped to make you feel really comfortable throughout.
Not only are the apartments perfect but the hosts (who stay next door) made the stay truly special.
Denis and Jonas go above and beyond to make sure that you are comfortable and that you feel at home. Way above any service I have had before.
I cannot recommend this place enough and I am looking forward to returning to my second home in the future already!
Great location, a short walk to the gorgeous Joaquina Beach. Other beaches, including Mole, and the truly amazing Galheta Beach, are also within walking distance.
The apartment is as on the photos. I was worried about the mattress, but it was absolutely fine, in fact, better than many mattresses I experienced in hotels. The kitchen is basic, but has all I needed. Towels and bedsheets were provided.
I especially liked the check-in system, where I didn’t have to worry about arriving on time, picking up the keys, etc. The apartment was simply open with the keys, as well as the WiFi password, on the table! This is evidently a very safe area. Whenever I had a question, it was answered within seconds via Whatsapp. I had all the privacy I needed, while feeling safe at the same time, knowing that the owners live next door.
I wouldn’t hesitate to book the same place again, if I ever return to Florianopolis.
Appartement très sympa. Tranquille. Les propriétaires sont très gentil, aimable et vous aide volontiers.
We stayed in Denis/Jonas' apartment for 4 night. We landed on Christmas Day, but Denis was very kind to meet us anyway. The apartment is a bit off the beaten path (I recommend renting a scooter), but the property is beautiful. The apartment is exactly as advertised, as well. There is a ceiling fan in the main bedroom, which helped w the heat. My only suggestion would be for an a/c window unit. Otherwise, a very pleasant stay!
Denis is an ideal guest. Intelligent, with a good sense of humor, easy going. Very tidy, polite and respectful to my property. He is a host himself so he knows how it all works from both points of views. Totally recommended.
Secret Bay is one of the best places in Joaquina district. It is perfectly located, close to Joaquina beech and to Mole, Galheta and Barra. There are plenty great restaurantes nearby and the walk to Lagoa downtown is beautiful.
The apartment was very comfortable, it had everything I expected and more, besides the gym is dreamy with a great view to the park.. The neighborhood is quiet and the owners, Denis and Jonas, are great people. They answered to my every request promptly and efficiently! I'm planning to travel back to Florianopolis this year, Secret Bay is the place to stay.
Many thanks to Denis and Jonas for your hospitality, you guys rock!
