A beautiful place in a perfect localisation!
Marìlia, our host, was extra helpful and caring. She told us everything about the village and recommended places worth visiting as well as where to eat the best fish in our lives (!). She also printed our return plane tickets for us.
The pillows were those with foam squares which was a pity. Wooden floors mean that you can hear people above (We were on the ground floor). It wasn't their problem, but it would be helpful to have the prices of the thermals displayed. Guide books are out of date as soon as they're printed
Loved the decor. Very tastefully renovated and decorated house. Kitchen was clean and modern. Also had some lovely old fashioned bits like the window shutters which keep out light and a stone washing tub do do hand washing. Loved the quirky light switches. The shower room is very modern. Great dressing gowns and towels. Liked the extra touch of the yellow towels for the thermals.
Great stay in a awesome accommodation.
You won't regret it - the best place to stay in the island, feels like home.
Excellent location, all necessary facilities are available, extremely clean and the hosts helped us a lot to discover the island!
Communication about arrival was lacking. Did not know that there was not a staffed front desk until after we had arrived and therefore no one was there to let us in/check us in. Made for a stressful stretch of time, trying to figure out a way to communicate to hotel (no internet access) and wondering if we had a place to stay.
Comfortable bed. Very clean. Charming architecture.
Comfortable bed, very clean, fully equiped kitchen

Noise isolation in the rooms could be better
We felt like at home. The concept is like you live in your own house for some days. There's access to an outdoor grill place where we actually did a barbecue. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. There's also a living room and an hidden reading corner with a book shelf in the first floor. The whole house is super clean and smells great. Our room was the number 4 with a view to the square in front of the house. The room has a beautiful view to the mountains and city and has a huge window with a french balcony. It is very lightful. Sr. Manuel, his wife and the house keeper are all very service minded and friendly. They made some extra towels available for us to take to the hot springs. That was a nice touch. One of the best guesthouse experience I have ever had.
Beautifully decorated but lacked functionality and cosiness.
Lack of functional items in the room. No towel rails. Only one small wardrobe for clothing. Window opening which could be used as fire escape blocked from opening by sink. Bunk bed looked nice but very high and ladder difficult to climb safely. No reception or staff permanantly on site to help with queries. Breakfast advertised but didn’t seem to be In offer on arrival.
The room was beautifully decorated with original features of house. Cleanliness excellent. Cleaner was friendly and helpful. Sea view from room.
Beautifully presented property with a nice kitchen and friendly staff.
Perfect stay in Ribeira Grande
We had a very nice stay in Ribeira Grande. The room was clean and spacious and we had a perfect view to the side of the plaza. We stayed there over New Years Eve and Ribeira Grande was a perfect place to celebrate the new year. Communications with the staff were great and they were very friendly. We would come back again!
11/10 host and room. Best for the price.

Fantastic time in a stunning place
Comfort location Staff
Lovely stay at Casa da Cascata
We bang our heads quite a few times in the ceiling as the room was in the roof. Our room was in the second floor which meant a lot of steps. Be careful in case you have difficulty on foot.
João and Vanessa's house is so lovely and so nicely decorated. We felt very well there. The room as well as the common spaces ( kitchen, bathrooms, garden, living room) were very clean. The kitchen was well equipped to cook. Our room had view on the mountain. We could park the car in front of the house or on a parking space 5 min away from the house. Internet was working fine. The house is located next to many restaurants and the swimming pool, very central in Ribeira grande. It was a good base for the discovery of the centre and east of the island.
