We, Anthony, Stephanie and our son Lenny, are very pleased to welcome you to Manga Verde Beach Residence (MVBR), our little paradise on earth. Davi and Jose, our security and handymen, will happily guide you through the common areas.
We can speak French, English, Spanish, Malagasy, Brazilian Portuguese, German, Flemish, and Hebrew, so we will surely find a way to exchange with each other and share our travel stories! Before settling in in Brazil we worked for Art in All of Us, the NGO we founded, and gave workshops in schools in 193 countries, using art to promote tolerance and cultural exchanges. Today the NGOs activities are still followed by hundreds of children daily.
Manga Verde is a family residency and we are doing our very best to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We kindly request your co-operation in observing the following rules. Please come to see us should you experience any problem during your stay.
Check-in and Check-out
Check-in is at 3 pm, and check-out is by 11 am. Depending on availability, it might be possible for you to arrive slightly earlier, or stay longer, but please check with us in advance. For security and legal reasons please present your local ID card, or Passport upon Check-in for registration.
We have decorated each apartment with love and some with unique pieces., and we invite you to check that every decorative item, furniture and appliances provided in the apartment when you entered is still present when you leave. We have achecklist of inventory for you to check when you arrive and before leaving. We will gladly quickly go through it with you.
We apply a Strict 30 Days cancellation policy: cancellations made by email 30 full days prior to local check in time and day (3:00 PM if not specified at booking) can claim a 50% refund of accommodation fees.
Please note there is no refund for cancellations made less than 30 days before booked check-un.
If a guest decides to leave early, nights not spent are not refunded.
Maintenance of the apartments
We understand that accidents happen. But we do ask that you please let us know when they do. Chances are we can fix them as effortlessly as possible which also means better chances of having your full security deposit returned too.
Our maximum occupancy requirement is 6 persons (adult and children included) per apartment, except for Hidden Beauty (#7) which can host up to 4 persons.
We understand that for a whole variety of reasons, you may want additional guests to stay in the place. In that event, please let us know in advance. We’re reasonable folk and will accommodate wherever possible.
You are welcome to have friends over for the day until 10pm, as long as they are in reasonable numbers.
To be considerate to others, we kindly ask our guests to respect each other’s peace by reducing noise from 10 PM to 7 AM.
Please discard sanitary napkins, tampons, diapers and baby wipes in the bins we’ve provided in the bathrooms. Only body waste and toilet paper belong to the toilet.
Please don’t forget to turn off lights and the A/C when you are not in the apartment, and to make sure to close doors and windows when using the A/C.
All our electricity runs on 220V.
To ensure full safety of our guest’s belongings, please make sure to keep the car gate closed and the pedestrian gate locked at night as a precautionary measure. Whilst being one of the safest areas, we want to ensure every guest’s stay remains problem free, and this is just one small and simple thing we’re able to do to ensure that. Please report any loss of keys immediately to Anthony and Stephanie.
Please take care of your own belongings in the apartment, or any other part of MVBR, as Manga Verde cannot be hold responsible for any loss occurred.
Pool and safety
We love swimming under the moon and stars and are happy to offer you a 24h access to pool as well. We will inform the guests when the pool is closed for night maintenance (usually from 9 PM onwards).
Please help us keep that rule for future guests by respecting the quiet time (10PM-7AM).
In order to help us maintain our pool crystal clear, please shower before jumping in. Please note that we have no lifeguard on duty.
For safety reasons, we also kindly ask you to only use reusable plastic glasses and bottles in the pool area.
Smoking and drugs
We have a strict no smoking and drug policy, although you are welcome to smoke on the parking area, and to use the ashtrays provided.
There are big rubbish bins at the entrance of the property behind the laundry room where you can dispose of your trash.
Please ask us first if you would like to bring a pet.
Each apartment has one dedicated parking place.
Photographs and Video’s
Should you like to take photographs and video’s on MVBR for commercial or public purposes, please let us know. We will be happy to discuss it with you.
