AWAY FROM IT ALL
When you’re longing to get away, find a tranquil place far from everything. Hidden in the forest, but with breath-taking ocean views, luxury amenities, and memories to last a lifetime - you'll find yourself at Escape by the Sea.
Choose one of our four contemporary cottages - each with traditional accents - luxuriously furnished with fully-equipped kitchens. Spend your days on Fogo Island’s many hiking trails, enjoying eco-tours, whale watching, and iceberg spotting, and your evenings in front of a roaring fire pit with a delicious dinner from one of the many restaurants on Fogo Island.
Nestled in a wooded break away from roads and traffic with the ocean just footsteps away, Escape by the Sea offers a stay like no other.
Are you ready to escape?
MEET KIM & KAYLA
Kim Holmes and Kayla Shea are joint owners of Escape by the Sea. Sisters-in-law and best friends, the two began Escape by the Sea as a nightly-cottage rental to fill a gap in the island’s tourism industry.
Kim and Kayla are both proud to take on this adventure as business partners/great friends & sister in-laws. They are real life yin and yang.
They believe Escape by the Sea Inc. is going to fill a gap in the tourism industry on Fogo Island. They are excited at the prospect of what this new business venture will bring to her life.
Kim, a mom of two, has a drive for business from years of owning and working in an art gallery/framing shop where she found her passion meeting and chatting with tourists from all over the world. Kayla, a nurse and mom to three, brings a zest for life and passion for creating excitement for each guest.
Kim and Kayla are confident Escape by the Sea will be the experience of a lifetime for their guests, a place built of beautiful memories, where every visitor can take a piece of their escape home.
