Discover the hidden treasures of the island
Unlike some of the other islands on Cape Verde, São Vicente hasn’t been overrun by tourists yet. This offers a unique opportunity to discover the real Cape Verde. Because we want you to enjoy it as much as we do, we’ll share the best scenic walks, viewpoints, beaches and other things to do on this beautiful, sunny island.
Looking for some the best lunch or dinner spots? Ask us about our favorites during your stay with us.
A stay in Case Bom Dia will offer you a glimpse into our keto lifestyle and an opportunity to give it a try as well or expand your existing keto knowledge. Without any obligation of course. You’re on holiday after all.
Our mornings start with a healthy keto friendly breakfast at our communal table.
For those of you who feel sporty, join us on our daily run, walk or ocean swim.
Want to immerse yourself in the local culture and buy some daily fresh ingredients for lunch or dinner while at it? Come along on our trips to the local fruit, vegetable or fish market. We’ll also show you the good supermarkets and some ‘hidden’ little shops not to be missed.
We love to get to know our guests better and spend some time together. So why not join us for a drink under the stars ,enjoy an afternoon coffee or tea in our lounge area, or watch a movie in our outdoor cinema. The choice is yours. We can’t wait to meet you.
Whenever we travel (wether for work or leisure) we like to stay at guesthouses and b&b's where the hosts live or spend a considerable amount of time. They're the best access to inside information and a guarantee to get to see / know the less touristy places. At Casa Bom Dia we got exactly what we hoped for. Sofie, Christoph and their two boys Mateo and Timo went out of their way to create a place that felt like home, made us feel welcome, gave us some great tips on things to see and do on the island and on Santo Antao, took us on adventurous trips over the weekend in their Land Rover, showed us some great gems in Mindelo and surprised us with an amazing breakfast each morning (don't forget to try the yoghurt). All while respecting our privacy to the max. The colonial house - yes it's bright yellow - had some great features we loved: the rooftop terrace with open air kitchen (if you like you can cook your own lunch and diner here), communal table, bar, hammocks and an unbeatable view on the city, the mountains and the harbour, an open air cinema, good wifi and let's not forget, karaoke :-). Our room - with direct access to the rooftop terrace - had all the comfort we needed, including a private terrace where we enjoyed numerous sunrises and sunsets. At just 10 minutes by foot from the city centre and 15 min from Laghina beach and amidst a lively local neighbourhood, the location couldn't have been better for us. By the way, if you're into the keto lifestyle you might for sure want to check this place out. O, and almost forgot to mention: they offer free airport / port pick-up. Trust me, that's exactly what you need upon arrival.
Casa Bom Dia haalt je gratis op aan de luchthaven en brengt je in 20' naar het prachtige koloniale huis, waar je met een hartelijke ontvangst verwelkomt wordt. Wij kregen een rondleiding van de woning met als topper het dakterras met open keuken waarvan je gebruik kan maken. Kamers zijn in dezelfde stijl ingericht en voorzien van het nodige comfort. Het ontbijt kan je samen met de familie nemen met keuze tussen Keto- of normaal ontbijt, wij probeerden de 2 variaties en het heeft gesmaakt. Mindelo is een aangename plaats met verschillende mogelijkheden, Sofie en Christoph delen graag alle info die je nodig hebt om uw verblijf zo aangenaam mogelijk door te brengen. Casa Bom Dia is een echte aanrader, en wij zullen hier zeker terug gaan.
