About Shea William Halligan
I've been living in Brasil for over 18 years. I spend most of my time Rio de Janeiro and Praia do Forte. I bought this property 10 years ago as a retreat/sanctuary from the hectic pace of Rio. My family and I spend several months a year here and have decorated this property as if it were our primary home. We plan on living there full time in the future.
Shea William Halligan purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Shea William Halligan chose Açu da Torre
We fell in love with Praia do Forte the first moment we arrived in 2006. I purchased this unit as it was being constructed within days of arriving here. We've been spending 3+ months a year here ever since...
What makes this Condo unique
This is simply the best and most convenient location in Praia do Forte. It also has some of the largest oceanfront open space of any condominium in the area. It is truly a sanctuary, yet you are a 5 minute walk from all the hustle and bustle of the villa and the Projeto Tamar. The Piscinas Natural are directly in front of the apt as is the best snorkeling.

The location and pool facilities were great. It bordered the beach and the town was steps away!
Our stay was awesome. After running around Rio and hiking in Lencois relaxing at PDF is what we needed.
Nice house, great condo super safe and clean. House rusty and ammenities not all working
Awesome location in a really nice condominium. Super safe, Great views, and very nice communal pool with great views. The house was comfortable but the kitchen and toilets had rusty. Air conditioning was not working on one the rooms but it got solved within the day. Fans in the room were not working. Some windows did not properly close and mosquitos came in. Very poor wifi coming from the communal pool, we only had wifi in the terrace and it worked very poorly. Good house but somehow espensive considering it was shabby and not properly taken care of
I am very sorry that your experience at my home did not meet your expectations. The cleaning crew was there most of the day before you arrived. I have never received any complaints about their work or lack of cleanliness, especially in the kitchen and bathrooms. My home is located on the beach next, to the lighthouse/point and there are constant ocean breezes coming off the water. As such, it is a constant battle with the elements of nature, electronics like ceiling fans, batteries in remote controls and wifi adapters are constantly being destroyed. This was the case with the 1 month old A/C you mention, the salt air had destroyed the batteries in the remote control. This was quickly resolved with new batteries. The same was true of the WiFi adapter in the upstairs bedroom, the the salt air had shorted it out. I am sorry that we were not able to replace it until Monday. Same problem with the ceiling fans, they are set to be replaced next week. I spend 4 to 5 months a year here and it has always been my goal to ensure that my guests have the best experience possible.
Adoramos o nosso feriado da Páscoa neste lugar paradisíaco. Sem dúvidas, a melhor localização da Praia do Forte! E o apartamento é muito aconchegante e bem decorado! Voltaremos outras vezes!
Não muito confortável
O imóvel é bem básico, estava empoeirado, com roupas de cama envelhecidas, não tem TV, nem Wi-fi. E não tem blackout nos quartos, ou seja, as 5h da manhã vc acorda com o sol na cara. Relação custo-benefício ruim.
Apto muito aconchegante, com vista belíssima, mobiliário excelente, Infra estrutura do condomínio muito boa!!!
Muito boa impressão
Excelente condomínio, com ótima área de piscina e localização ao lado da Vila, o que facilita muito o dia dia.
Experiência bastante positiva.
