We stayed at Bob and Dalva's apartment for six weeks this past April and May. Having traveled quite a lot and stayed in many different rental apartments, without a doubt, Bob and Dalva's was by far one of the best we've ever stayed at. It is bright and very spacious, extremely well equipped (from lots of linens, to a well stocked kitchen, to tons of books and games), and very comfortable.
The view from the apartment is gorgeous, and we were pleasantly surprised to find that the beach right in front of the apartment has now been restored and is beautiful. We loved walking along the beach, which stretches for as far as you can see. The location of the apartment is very handy to two different supermarkets, pharmacies, Shopping Guararapes, busses and taxis. It is a quieter area than Boa Viagem, but we very much enjoyed that, and as others have mentioned, it was easy enough to get to sights and the centre of the city by taxi or bus.
It is clear that this apartment is set up as a home and not just as a rental apartment, and Bob and Dalva were wonderful hosts and clearly (even just via email) very warm and kind people. They made us feel very at home and made our stay very easy and smooth. Thank you for a wonderful stay in Piedade!
