Not happy about not finding an accommodation in Velas town, we settled on the Cantinho das Buganvilias, which was nearby and not too inconvenient since we had a car. We were afraid that we wouldn’t be able to find it, but saw the sign for Ponta de Queimada and there it was, almost at the end of the road. (I believe the sign says Pta de Queimada and you turn in at the church.) Also, transport from the airport and/or port can be arranged in advance with the property.
This seems like a brand new facility on a residential street (although I think someone said it was about 8 years old). Trees and vines abound, both on the property and along the street, providing a lovely green environment. There are two swimming pools – one indoor and the other outdoor - as well as an exercise facility and full restaurant. This last amenity is convenient as there didn’t seem to be any other options within walking distance. Velas is a short drive away.
All of the rooms are apartments, with a full kitchen, dining area and large living room. Our unit had two bedrooms – one with two twin beds and one with a king sized bed. The bathroom was large enough for two people at the same time – two sinks, toilet, bidet, shower and tub. The décor was modern and pleasant. Windows abound, with two walls of windows in the living room and large windows in each of the bedrooms. Linens and sheets were a nice quality.
Overall, given the size of the apartment for the price made the Cantinho das Buganvilias a good deal and the amenities made for a comfortable stay.
