Immerse yourself in the authentic local culture of this historic small boat fishing port while staying at Casa Santo Antonio. This elegant and newly restored home with all the modern amenities is located on a scenic property offering panoramic views of the ocean front, horizon, Mt. Brazil, as well as the quaint parish and bay of Sao Mateus. The cloud formations are quite amazing! Notice how rapidly the sky changes throughout the day, but what is most thrilling are the rainbows, that stretch across the Island sky, from end to end...truly spectacular! From the east facing terraces you can witness the day begin with a brilliant sunrise over Mount Brasil. Watch the explosion of water color paint the sky orange, red, pink, violet, blue and lavender. Utterly breathtaking.
Situated atop a tall sea wall that resembles a fortress with its well-appointed large balconies, spacious stone patio seating/dining areas, and magnificent views from every window, this house is the perfect get away for those looking for an ocean front community experience. Upon arrival our caretaker will welcome you, to give you the keys, and a tour of the house to answer any questions you might have. It is very clean, secure, and decorated with hand painted tile art by one of our local artists. Adjacent to a lively fishing port that boasts the best seafood dining on the island, you will find that within walking distance are several restaurants, local pastry and coffee shops, an artisan hand crafted gift shop, a historic church, ice cream parlor, grocery store, gas station, nightclub, whaling museum and access to the pier on the bay. Local festivals right on the port especially the 2nd week of August bring the party to your front door. Very private but not quiet this location is for those looking to stay where the action is day and night. The port is alive and bustling at times.
