Mario's house in unique and comfortable. Everything had been recently "refreshed" and was very clean. Beautiful tiles and nice details. The location is literally a stone's throw from the main street in the old town and harbor, and about a 15 minute walk to the beach the other direction. Couldn't be better. It was unusually chilly during our recent mid April stay, but there were space heaters in the bedrooms, and the heatpump/AC in the main living area kept us quite toasty while inside. The kitchen was fully equipped. The bathrooms are updated, but note that most are very small and in two of them, the floor & shower are level, so that when you shower the entire bathroom gets wet, including in the one bathroom the toilet area and sink become soaked. (they are located immediately next to one another, and the entire bathroom is behind a glass shower-type folding door). However, having 4 ensuite bathrooms is amazing and rare in an old home like this! Additionally, there is a very nice tub in the 5th bathroom on the main living area. There is also a hand sprayer, but no permanent mount, so that is really just for bathing. The water pressure was good and the water was warm. Mario could not have been more accommodating or helpful. He took us on a little walking tour of the area and gave some great suggestions. In particular the Churrascuria where he recommended we eat the Piri Piri chicken was superb!!! great tip! he also showed us the nearest local market, that was really wonderful. The large supermarket is very close, as well. The negatives for our group were the orientation of the bedrooms. Since we had 2 children, the fact that 2 of the bedrooms were truly separate from the main living space of the house, meant going outside and down 16 stairs to one bedroom, and outside through the outdoor dining to get to the other. We just had to get "creative" with who roomed together, but that was just specific to our group. otherwise, the layout offers good privacy for sleeping. Also, LOTS of steps throughout, so not for anyone with any mobility issues. And parking, while usually available somewhere nearby, was very tricky. The town is old and the roads are extraordinarily narrow and winding. We had a large van, and found it much more practical to park nearer to the beach side of town than directly outside Mario's. Thanks for a great and unique stay!
