The property for sale in Cape Verde that you are viewing might be designed for adults, so it may lack certain safety features for children. You can look for a property for sale in Cape Verde that is childproof, or you can add these safety features yourself after you move in. These are some of the features you might consider adding:

A Pool Cover or Fence - There have been several tragic stories of young toddlers falling into an open swimming pool and drowning before their parents even realize where they have gone. If you have young children who cannot swim, make sure that your pool is covered or has a fence or barricade around it.

Child Proof Locks - These are cheap and easy to install, and can be useful to child-proof any cupboards, drawers or closets that contain dangerous objects like knives or cleaning chemicals.

Baby Gates - A plastic gate that can install across any doorway or hallway, this can restrict areas of the house that are unsafe and prevent your toddler or baby from accidently falling down stairs.

Childproofing your holiday home will give you peace of mind and let everyone in the family relax and have fun!
