It is an amazing house! Fully made of wood which gives an amazing smell inside the rooms. It is very clean and tidy, surrounded by plants that grow in local forests and national park. The furniture is made localy from bamboo that also grows in forests which makes rooms look authentic, warm and cozy. There are all the necessities in the house: towels, soap, toilet paper. In the kitchen you can find coffee made in São Tomé, tea, suger, oil etc. The owner Arcadio is an energetic, open and very social person that knows his country really well. Always ready to help to make your stay comfortable. I highly recommend this house! The place I'd choose if i stayed to live.
