Lucked up and found Salav Guesthouse on my first visit to Praia. The staff were incredibly friendly and attentive, the home and grounds were quiet, safe and extremely well-maintained. Loved the sounds (Cabo Verdan music always playing in the background) smells (sandalwood?, clean & fresh) and sights (incredible view). Spent some time using the patio overlooking the ocean as an unofficial office (using WiFi to work on a project, hosting partners). The room was comfortable and just like the rest of the house, featured meticulously curated African décor. Breakfast there was always a perfect way to start the day. Sharing a bathroom was not a problem during my week’s stay – and all of the other great things about this place more than made up for any inconvenience. It truly was a home away from home and I highly recommend Salav Guesthouse.
