Especially helpful when doing hikes on yourself. Doing that saves you money compared to guided hikes and to me it's more preferable than having another person around. Before our stay, the owner, Kateleine helped us with doing our hike directly from the ferry from Mindelo. That was perfect for us. We arranged that her guy Jerry picked us up and... More

Probably not for everybody, but if you like to be in the middle of the hills in a very beautiful valley, away from a road, eating together with the other guests, receiving expert local advice, walking and hiking, ... Casa das Ilhas is a fantastic place to stay a few days.

Fantastic location! Takes a little effort to get there, but worth every step! The way this place is organized by Katelijne is great. You feel like you are home away from home. Katelijne is very helpful, and adapts all plans and ideas on personal needs and interests. Great food, great hospitality and great location. I would recommend this to all!... More

We spend four unforgettable nights in Casa da Ilhas, which played a key role in the success of our visit to Santo Antão. These were probably the best days of a two weeks trip to Cape Verde. Almost everything was great. Of course, there is always space for improvements, but this is valid even for a 5 stars hotel. The... More

The location is already said a lot about. You're in hiking paradise and probably at the best spot in Cabo Verde. The rooms are nice, nothing really special, but nice. But the owner. She makes my review average. She's rather rude, acts as the queen of the property and treats customers as their seconds. Not that you realize when you... More

When your are planning to visit Santo Antao this is a must-see accommodation. It lies withing the mountains. Everything is well organized and the rooms (my room was Fogo) was spacious and had great views. Beds are a bit small but comfortable. Great hot shower en-suite. During the day you can reach the best hikes for most of them are... More

Stayed for 5 days and hit the highlights of Santo Antao from one of the most beautiful locations on the island. Just took private and shared taxis as well as walk from the door. Katrinja will advise what to do each day and she's never wrong. Lovely atmosphere in the house at breakfast and dinner. Trekkers paradise!

Casa das Ilhas is a very peaceful place. It is in a fairly remote location with good walking around and superb views. The resident cats and dogs are friendly and the hosts welcoming. The hosts run a very tight ship; however, we could have been provided with a bit more information when we arrived, such as time of dinner and... More

I stayed 3 nights with Madame Katelijne who runs the Casa das Ilhas Hotel and enjoyed myself throughout. My room was spacious, in fact more like an apartment and the setting of the hotel was charming perched on a hilltop with a steep access on a path thru sugar cane fields (porters can be arranged). Katelijne provided all services you... More
