Holiday Rentals in Santa Maria

Just booked in Santa Maria

My place is close to Beautiful white sand beach. You’ll love my place because of It is a very beautiful and flat, with high end furniture, completely equipped, in a 5* resort, in a very tranquil area of the resort.. My place is good for couples, business travelers, and families (with kids).
  • We had a lovely stay at Fabrizio's apartment. The flat was very clean and in a great location. We walked to Santa Maria every day along the beach where we did all sorts of fun activities and ate extremely well. Fabrizio was extremely helpful and communicative in the lead up and throughout the week. A great place for some winter sun!

  • Really enjoyed our stay. Located in a good spot in the Tortuga Beach resort that offers a variety of two pools and the sea. The SPA is a big tip if you stumble upon a cloudy day. They often walk around the resort with open spots for that day at a 50% discount, making massages much better payable. We mainly dined at beach restaurant O'Grille, but were happy to find a supermarket to get some basic breakfast items (at Villa Verde) for the sake of variety. Santa Maria is close by and the beach there is a bit nicer, also does it offer a variety of restaurants to try from. Our favorite: Palm Beach, situated at the main beach. Cape Verde is good if you want to spend 1-1,5 weeks in the sun and maybe do (kite) surfing. Just don't expect the full positive tropical vibe and friendliness as you find it in South East Asia/Caribbean, and you will be happy for your choice.

  • We had a great stay at Fabrizio's place. Apartment was nice and spacious and the resort was nice too. Responded to all messages quickly and checked up regularly to see if everything was okay.

  • This is a flat of high quality in a quiet area close to beach and swimming pool. The activities of the complex was also open for us. The food at the resort complex was expensive, so we took a taxi to Santa Maria to eat there most nights. There was also a supermarked there to buy somethings for breakfast, and that gave us a pleasant stay with many possibilities.

  • Really nice apartment in a 5* resort, there was great communication and the kitchen was well equipped. The staff in the resort were so friendly and there's activities to do too such as yoga or beach volleyball. Would definitely return!

  • We stay in for a week. The apartment is nice and spacious, in a very nice resort with restaurants, bars and swimming pools, few meters from the beach and 5 minutes by taxi from the centre of Santa Maria. Fabrizio was very helpful and communicated very fast. Pleasant experience! :)

  • Fabrizio, opened the doors to us of one of his wonderful apartments. We enjoyed our stay in Sal very much. The Tortuga Resort is one of not the nicest one on Sal. The beach stunning. The sea food on Sal exquisite. Top rating in every category. Best wishes and thank you, Alex and Elna (first holiday without kids -who stayed with grandmother) it was like a second honeymoon

    Luxurious 3 bed 2 bathroom villa sat in the South phase of the spacious and very quiet Paradise Beach resort. The villa is fully air conditioned and tastefully furnished with high quality furniture throughout. Only 5 minute (€4) taxi ride to the bustling vibrant restaurants, shops and nightlife of Santa Maria. With a choice of pools and the beach only a few strides away the villa makes a fantastic place to get away from it all. Very quiet and relaxing resort.
    New to the market. Beautifully appointed, pool side with sea views.
    Beautiful flowers and landscaping. Several pools. Beach a few steps away. Generous spacious resort. Very quiet as generally privately owned thus rarely over 10% occupancy on the resort.
  • We had a very pleasant stay at Andy's Villa. The villa is new, clean and very spacious. Andy did his best to make our stay perfect

  • We loved this spacious house in this quiet area, very close to a wonderful beach. No people by the pool, great to almost have a pool of your own when your kids make noice. Yet a bit far from any supermarket, the taxi to town is only 4 Euros. We would really recommend this place!

    High quality furniture upgraded with adding a sofa bed which can sleep two people. It is part of a 5 stars resort with a beautiful common swimming pool, 10 minutes walking from the beach and the brand new BIKINI BEACH beach club.
  • It's okay. It wasn't a particularly good fit for me, although to each his own. There is considerable noise from the DJ & poolside activities just outside the apartment beginning at 10am everyday, so if you're a late sleeper expect to be woken up then.

  • Really beautiful experience, even better than the photos. Amazing hotel, amazing country, amazing citizen.

    Hamza2017-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • I never actually met Fabrizio but did meet his understudy Josias who was a very nice guy who helped with everything I needed. The apartment itself is amazing great views I was there buy myself but has a massive comfortable bed and a great sofa bed. You have access to all the perks of the resort and the chance to go all inclusive when you get there. I would definitely recommend this place and will definitely be back to Sal soon. Costs 3euro to town 4 at night in a taxi everyone who works in the resort are very nice and helpful .

    Frank2017-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • The place was great for us traveling with one child. The pool area in the resort is wonderful and the whole experience was lovely. Only mention is that the near by shop is a 10 min. walk away and it hasn't got the biggest selection. Since the flat is self catered this was a down point for us. But a part from that, we really enjoyed our stay in the flat!

  • Très bel appartement situé dans l'hôtel Melia avec accès à tous les services de l'hôtel : nombreuses piscines, animations, activités sportives... L'accès à la ville est très facile et rapide (l'île étant assez petite), navette de l'hôtel ou taxi pour 3euros. Tout le monde est aux petits soins pour vous faire passer de bonnes vacances !

  • Excellent service thought out from booking, airport taxi and overall stay at the apartment. It actually looks nicer in really. . Nice pool view with a reasonable size balcony. 5 mins stroll to the beach and 5 mins cab ride into Santa Maria. Sal beach club is a good spot to eat and drink, bonus if there's a game on. Information pack from host was a nice touch, came in very handy. You won't regret staying here.

  • Had a great stay for a week here with my boyfriend. The apartment is perfect for two, plenty big enough and very clean. The balcony has the sun all day which is great, and is one of the bigger balconys on the resort. It overlooks one of the multiple pools, but one of the quieter ones so no disturbance. We were there to kitesurf and so didn't go all inclusive, we just paid €3 for a taxi to town and had food there (delicious) before hitting the water. There is the option to eat on the resort and actually after a few days we realised it wasn't actually as expensive as we first thought (see note below*). The apartment is on the second floor which means it's very quiet and perfect for a relaxing stay!

  • I have just returned from a fantastic week's stay at John's fab apartment. It's great because you have the independence of an apartment within a 5* resort. It is very safe and secure with security at every gate. There is also space to park a car, should you decide to hire one. Oh, there is free WiFi, which I was able to access from the apartment and pretty much everywhere I went in the resort. I had my breakfast on the balcony every morning with a view of one of the swimming pools, and I watched the resort wake up. I didn't spend a lot of time in the resort. I was out exploring or walking along the beach. However, it was nice to watch a DVD some evenings. I cooked most nights. John has the best electric hob I have ever used - I want one! The kitchen is fully-equipped, so I shopped in the supermarket in Santa Maria and got my fruit and veg from the municipal market. I had a fab time. I would definitely recommend John's place to my family and friends, and I will stay there again if I return to Sal.

    Teresa2017-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment overlooking the pool. A fully equipped kitchen and comfortable living area makes it a home from home. The resort is huge so be prepared to walk. The beach is great and there are many pools etc to explore. I had a super time.

    Polly2016-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly what it says in the advert. Wonderful amenities and communication, easy transfer and lovely clean room with a pool view. Much better than we expected, we had a great time!

    Anna2017-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • From start to finish everything lived up to expectation giving me a lovely relaxing holiday in excellent accommodation on Sal, Capo Verde. Ahead of travel John provided me with clear instructions and useful information to make my holiday stress free and enjoyable. We were met at the airport and taken directly to the resort. This was a nice touch after a 6 hour flight. John arranged this and the price paid to the driver by me was no more than the normal taxi fare The flat itself is ideally situated with a wonderful 2nd floor view from a good sized balcony. There is easy access to the pool as well the other facilities within the resort. It has modern fittings throughout and the resort's wifi even works within the property which is a real asset. The resort's beach is a pleasant stroll and the night time in-resort entertainment was good. I shopped for supplies both at 'Farmers' Mini market within the nearby 'Villa Verde' apartment complex as well as the 'Cazu' Supermarket in Santa Maria. There wasn't much of a price difference although the latter had a wider choice. I ate in Santa Maria each night choosing the more rustic outlets which provided excellent value for money. I can recommend the following two local eateries which do not feature on Trip Advisor. 'Bar de Nosh' and 'Camara-Camara' both close to the walled football pitch. I preferred to use the local currency which I obtained from ATMs located in the resort and outside banks in 'Villa Verde' and Santa Maria. All the people I met on the Island were genuinely friendly and keen to help. Will return in 2018 or 2019 and hope to avail John of his accommodation once again Many thanks Peter Jones

  • If you’re looking for some sunshine and relaxation, this is the place to go. The appartment is very nice, clean and spacious and the resort is great. The pools are clean and nice and you can walk straight to the beach. The town is a taxi ride away with lots of restaurants and bars. This is really an amazing deal!

  • Geri's apartment at the Melia Dunas was fantastic. We arrived at the airport to a taxi transfer which worked smoothly. Upon arrival to the resort we had our luggage looked after. The apartment is spacious with air con and great facilities. The resort is wonderful 9 pools with activities all day. We opted out of the all inclusive (€300 pp) as we wanted to try the local restaurants in Santa Maria (€3-4 taxi ride or 1-1.5 beach walk). I cannot recommend the island or resort anymore. If you're thinking about going do it!

  • I can't say enough good things about Geri's place!! I loved the activities and hangout spots at the resort. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Cape Verde and would highly recommend her place. Ps: Thanks for the welcome pack Geri :)

    Mbalenhle2017-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • Geri's apartment is in the heart of the resort. It's the second time I've stayed at Melia Dunas and I'm sure it won't be the last. I should imagine I will book with Geri again in the very near future! It's the perfect getaway and great value!

    Georgia2016-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a good stay in the apartment of Geri although the world around - the resort - is not our peace of cake (artificial world). The facilities in the resort on the other hand are pleasant. The apartment is well equipped and has a cosy little garden near one of the swimming pools. And the location is perfect to walk to Santa Maria - either by beach or by the road. It takes more than hour 1/2. Santa Maria is touristic but in a cozy way. You really are in Cabo Verde.

    Marie-José2016-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is great, spacious for 2 people, fully equipped. right next to one of the quieter pools, good selection of DVDs/books available and check in was very easy. Melia itself is lovely - total 5* resort. We didn't use the services there beyond the pools and the occasional drink (reasonably priced - £2 for coffee/small beer/tea) - we would have had a meal on site but found it too difficult to find prices/hotel staff kept giving different information with the check in guy just saying 'very expensive' so we decided against. Not a problem as it was just for our first night but it seems the only way to find out prices is to go and order. The hotel is quite out of the way and obviously set up for all inclusive but once we figured out the area we were glad we had not gone for that option - there is a free bus from the hotel at 9, 10, 11am and back at 4, 5, 6pm. Taxis always available and we thought that taking a taxi a couple of times a day was a fair trade off for staying at such a lovely place. Also, the Ponta Preta beach restaurant was a handy find - 15 min walk there for times when you don't want to go into town for food. Food in town ranged from roughly 15euro for a meal and drink on the main road to 5 euro for a meal and drink in the local eats which were very good. Cannot fault the weather in April, each day was bright sunshine, night times are quite draughty so long dresses/trousers and a jacket were more suitable. Overall, this place is perfect for a peaceful, relaxing holiday and will be my choice of accommodation if I visit Cape Verde in the future.

  • My friend and I stayed at Geri's apartment for one week in January. From booking Geri was available when needed and provided us with lots of info to get us started. The apartment itself was extremely confortable with quality furnishings, more than was expected from a rental. There is a full modern bathroom and gorgeous terrace overlooking the pool. We didnt need it but there is air con too. If you are spending time in the apartment there is a good selection of tv channels. The resort is huge and you have the option of upgrading to all inclusive/half board. We preferred to eat out in the town which is 3/4 Euros (3-4 min drive) in a taxi and has a large selection of places to choose from. The hotel resort has numerous pools and bars and their food is also of a high quality. There is a beach in the resort which is stunning. Whilst in Cape Verde there are lots of excursions available and we tried the buggies- highly recommended! We would not hesitate to book this apartment again due to its comfort, location, facilites and flexibility. Thanks Geri!

    kara 2017-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Geri responded to my original request and subsequent questions very quickly. Her instructions were clear and easy to follow. The complex is less than 2 years old, so the apartment was clean and comfortable! Loved the soft leather sofas in the living room! We went for self-catering option. For this purpose, you will find all your essentials in the apartment - pots, pans, dishes, microwave, toasted, kettle, etc. There was a loaf of bread, crackers and butter in the fridge, which was a nice touch. We were also left an almost full bottle of rum, which may have been a left-over from previous occupants, but it certainly helped to pass the time on the first evening. There's a selection of board games and films to keep you entertained once the sun has gone down, and the TV has 6-7 film channels as well. Geri's apartment is on the ground floor with a lovely terrace and overlooking a quiet pool. Just a short walk from the main reception and an outdoor theatre, which has shows every evening. Beach towels in the resort get snapped up extremely quickly, so make sure to get one as soon as the towel booths open! All-in-all, we're glad we chose to stay here and not in Santa Maria. It's such a good value compared to the hotels in the village!

  • Geri's place it's really nice, you will feel like at home, people at the hotel are very helpful as well. I highly recommend it to everybody looking for a comfy and quiet place. Thanks again Geraldine.

    Light & spacious 2 bedroom apartment near the vibrant town of Santa Maria & wonderful sandy beach of Ponta Preta; balconies off each bedroom and a large living space balcony w/ BBQ offer the perfect spaces to relax & unwind. You'll be met at the airport on arrival and transferred by taxi straight to the resort (included in the price), which will hopefully make for a nice, hassle-free start to your break.
    The island of Sal in Cape Verde is a beautiful retreat offering visitors the chance to unwind in a unspoilt region of the world described as the African Caribbean. The apartment in Vila Verde is spacious and comfortable and provides you with all the home appliances you'll need for a stress-free week. Situated close to Santa Maria, as well as Kite Beach and the white sandy beaches of Ponta Preta and Tortuga, visitors will discover a large choice of activities including kite-surfing, snorkelling, diving, jet ski, surfing, quad biking and segway experiences.

Santa Maria, just 2km away, has a vibrant night life with a wide range of restaurants and bars, with friendly locals adding to the experience. Delicious fish is freshly caught and delivered to the restaurants by the local fisherman.
    The people, the space, the beaches, the unspoilt charm of the Island of Sal and its inhabitants. Vila Verde is an award winning development of apartments, townhouses and 3 and 4 bed villas in Sal just 300 meters from the white sandy Ponta Preta Beach. Designed by Nuno Leonidas , who has designed many major prestigious developments around the world. Designed with a relaxed , spacious atmosphere in a colonial village style and using the highest quality specifications.
  • Contact with Mark was very good. The apartment looked exactly as shown in the photos (unlike some previous airnbnb stays)and is very well maintained. The complex is pretty quiet at the moment but there is a very clean pool and pool bar area as well as a regular free shuttle bus to Santa Maria. The town is a five minute drive in the bus or a 3 euro taxi ride. The beaches and the sunshine are the main thing to go to Sal for as unless you are a kite/wind surfer there is not a lot to do, which was perfect for us as we just wanted to relax in the sunshine for a week. Mark arranged taxi collection from the airport even though we arrived at 1 am in the morning, which was much appreciated.

    Susan2015-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great holidays at Mark's place. We loved Cape Verde and the flat was great, it is very spacious, clean and comfortable and having the balcony with a barbecue is ideal to make the most of the good weather. The rooms were big and have their own private balconies and bathrooms. The shared swimming pools located around the area are big and quiet. The property manager arranged a cab from the airport for us and helped us settle in when we arrived. Note that you have to take a cab to go to the beach in Santa Maria, but we knew this beforehand, so no bad surprises there. Walking is technically feasible (20-25 minutes) but has to be along a busy road which didn't seem very safe. You can walk to Ponta Preta which is a surfing beach (not for swimming) in about 10-15 minutes. Mark was very quick to respond to all our questions and arranged everything smoothly. Thanks for everything!

  • Very Spacious, clean and new apartment. Mark was very help full setting us up with help of Trevor the local guy out there on call support. Mark is extremely responsive. We staid here in April and this makes Villa Verde complex pretty much deserted. Beaches are in my opinion just a little walk to far. With kite gear 15-20 minutes to Punta Preta. Kite beach is 3 minutes with a car, we used a rental. Taxis are plenty and affordable. (+/- 4 euros to Santa Maria). Car rental is 50 a day deal making possible. During our stay the lift was not working, appartment is on the 2nd floor

  • Mark, We really enjoyed our stay, the apartment was great. Next time we are in Sal you will be hearing from us. We loved Villa Verde and the local surrounding area. The accommodation was just as it was presented and more. Thanks again

  • Comfortable apprtment. Beds were great. Second bathroom shower just serviceable. Biggest problem is shortage of fresh foods. Don't go if cooking your own meals are important. There is a selection of nice reasonably priced restuarant, bar, cafe types in the center of "town". Walking 30 minutes. Is free shuttle but not frequent. Taxi's are not expensive. Diving for experienced dive masters so-so. Once was enough. Plenty of peace and quiet. Nice pool and reasonable cafe.

  • We have just returned from 2 weeks on Sal where we stayed in Marks great apartment. The apartment is in a quiet and modern resort just outside Santa Maria. The apartment has great views of as it's on the 2nd floor and is very well equipped with nice furniture and everything you need for your stay. Mark was extremely helpful with information about the island and organizing our family (6 people) a transfer from the airport to the apartment where the key was waiting for us with his local rep. He also recommended us to the best Kite Surfing school on the island Kiteboard Club. I would have no hesitation in returning to this apartment again and would like to thank Mark for all his support in making our trip to Sal unforgettable. All the best Leo.

  • The apartment was comfortable and had everything to make my stay a comfortable experience. The host was very positive, honest and always responded to my queries without delay. This applied during the booking period and throughout my stay. Very helpful, personal but definitely not intrusive. Good relationship has prevailed. There was free transport provided from the complex in which the apartment is located to the centre of town (Santa Maria) and plentiful cheap taxi services. There is a local shop on site for basic needs, a nearby pool bar for snacks, a restaurant and a Pizza House also within the complex. The complex as a whole is very clean, quiet and presentable.

  • Great apartment - photos very accurate, modern, clean and spacious. Everything works well. Mark was an excellent host and provided great info on where to go/what to do in Santa Maria ahead of the trip. When I arrived, I was greeted by a pre-arranged taxi at the airport, which took me straight to the apartment where I met the English property manager, Trevor. Trevor was very helpful in showing me around the apartment, as well as the wider resort – restaurant, pool, bar and supermarket. Vila Verde is itself quiet, though a short taxi ride into Santa Maria (for the princely sum of €3), where there countless restaurants and bars to choose from. Kite beach is also around a 5 min ride for those that way inclined. Very happy with trip and would definitely recommend. Thanks Mark.

    Appartamento al piano terra nel Melia tortuga beach resort a sud dell'isola di Sal. Dista 5 min di taxi da Santa Maria o dalla spiaggia di Kite beach. Appartamento moderno completo di tutto situato vicino al ristorante e alla reception.

Enjoy and tks to see one of ours offer.
  • The place is very nice! Great option for a group of four or family with two children. The host is very friendly.

  • Paolo was easy to get in touch with, he answered every day on e-mail and he gave us good tips on where to go and what to eat at Cape Verde. We did not meet him, but the apartment is good and so is he.

  • Everything really fine. Perfect apartment and Paolo is quite nice and friendly. We enjoyed our stay and can recommend the apt. for everyone =).

    Phillip2016-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and comfy apartment in a luxury resort. As it is a private apartment, you have to pay for any of the services that the resort offers, which are utterly expensive. We asked for towels for the swimming pool and they rejected our asking because we were staying in a private apartment. Besides that, the resort is calm and the location is great if you have a rental car.

    Xavier2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Paolo is a very nice and committed Host. He solved little technical problems quickly and efficient, it was always and at any time easy to contact and reach him. Phantastic and efficient service. The flat is exactly as shown on the pictures. Nothing less, but nothing more. It is furnished functionally. The private terrace is not really usable, so it is recommended to chill out on the public areas of the resort.

  • Travelled with 2 children (8 and 10) Very nice and functional apartment. Very well situated in the quiet part of the resort and pretty close to the swimming pool. Kitchen had all the amenities for making light meals. Good fridge and freezer for ice cubes. A real bonus was the water cleaning system under the kitchen sink. Saved us from going to the shops in town to get drinking water. Perfect with the beach towels provided for us too. The beach and waves were too rough to go swimming, however it was possible at Bikini Beach (the bar on the sea with stone breakwater around it) just about 50 meters to the north. Mostly we went to the Santa Maria Beach in town which was perfect. Only a 10 minutes taxi (3 euro) or hotel shuttle (free) ride. Taxi is very easy and you don't have to bargain or hackle as the price is fixed. The first couple of days the local guys in town will greet you with "Don't you recognize me? I work at your resort. Can I help you?" They usually don't work at your resort or recognize you - only your resort bracelet. They don't hassle you. Are quite nice but would of course like to earn a euro or two. Our favorite restaurant was Creparia Sol Doce at the pier (only open for lunch and closed Wednesday). If you like crepes and fresh orange juice and good coffee. This is the place. The best though is their grilled fish with home cut fries. If you are a connoisseur ask for Barriga de atum (tunas belly) which is a special piece of meat from below the head. Very very delicious. So are their tuna steaks, wahoo and amberjack. We can also highly recommend going for an island trip with the only female taxi driver on Sal. Her name is Tete and she calls herself Taxi Lady (ask to be picked up by her if you book transfer from airport). We communicated with her via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). All in all a very good stay in Capo Verde.

  • I would highly recommend staying with these guys. They are amazing!! The place was better then described. The communication with both Henry and Frankie was spot on. Given that everything is imported in Sal when I asked for things they delivered. They were very attentive to our needs. The place itself was high end, clean and lovely. It's away from the complex so it's very peaceful and you still have your privacy. 100% use these guys.

  • We had a lovely time at Geri's apt in Vila Verde. It was a lovely apartment fully kitted out. Geri was extremely helpful and responded very quickly to any queries. Trevor was also on hand and lives close by for any queries and help. It was sometimes too quiet but being our first week in Cape Verde it was very relaxing albeit quite humid. We used the pool next door at Cactus apartments which has a cafe by the pool. The pool at Canna (Geri's apt) was quiet and hardly used - there was some minor construction work at that bar and therefore no service there. We loved Ponta Preta beach which can be reached by the courtesy bus and the last bus back is at 7pm so you get to see the sunset - just wonderful. You can walk there but I have a mobility issue. The sea can be rough there but it was relatively calm for us and we spent most of the time in the sea. The beach and restaurant are lovely. The courtesy bus also goes into Santa Maria. We were lucky enough to attend the annual festival on the beach when there. Kite beach is further away (not too far) but a must to book a trip to see the turtles laying eggs there in September. All in all a fabulous time was spent at the apartment. The only thing we could have done with is the aircon which unfortunately was out of action but this was an issue for the block not something Geri could sort for us but she did have adequate fans and a portable aircon unit which sufficed. I definitely recommend Geri's apt and would love to book again sometime in the future.

  • Comfortable, spacious appartement. A nice and safe place to stay with kids. It is good to know that Santa Maria can be reached by taxi or a free shuttle service. Vila Verde a bit desolate, but the services are very good. There is some space for improvements (the kitchen was not really clean), but overall i would recommend this place! Free WiFi available near the pool in front of the appartement.

  • Thank you Geri. We enjoyed our stay very much! Sandro

    Sandro2015-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic communication from start to finish, this included checking that we had arrived safely and that there were no issues with the apartment (there weren't) Trevor- onsite manager- met us upon arrival at the apartment and was a font of knowledge regarding local amenities and the island in general, he also arranged a tour of the island for us. The location itself is quiet and some days we had the pool to ourselves, perfect place to relax. The supermarket had all the basics and we found prices comparable to those in Santa Maria. Free shuttle bus service into Santa Maria was great, we used it a lot, taxis are in abundance and at only 3-4 euros is a good alternative. We didn't use wifi in the apartment, the maun reception has wifi which we took advantage of whilst waiting for the bus. Ponta Preta beach is a 15-20 min walk and is beautiful, well worth the walk. There is only one restaurant there so make sure you take plenty of water. We also booked the 1/2 day sailing which I would highly recommend. Great choice of bars and restaurants in Santa Maria and at weekends the main road is closed off and the road becomes an overspill for the bars and restaurants filling up with tables and chairs. It was our first visit to Cape Verde and we will definitely return.

  • Geri was extremely helpful and friendly throughout the booking process. Geri ensured that the apartment manager was ready for our arrival and he arranged for us to be picked up from the airport by taxi and met us at the apartment to go through everything. The apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped with everything you would need for a holiday. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. It was blissfully quiet in the apartment block- we had the pool area to ourselves for most of the week. The pool was fairly large and clean, but a bit chilly! There is a small shop on site for the essentials and a bar in the next door apartment for snacks and drinks. The food at the on site restaurant was pretty good, with excellent service. We also went to a BBQ on Saturday at the on site Club House where there was live music and really good food. The complex felt safe and there were security guards at the entrances and patrolling. The apartment is a short taxi ride away from the town in Santa Maria and there is also a shuttle bus that takes you into the town. Santa Maria was lively and busy- lots of bars, restaurants and shops. The beach was beautiful but busy - get down there early if you want a sun lounger! The apartment is close to Ponte Preta beach, which is apparently excellent for kite surfing. You can walk there in 20 minutes or get the shuttle bus or taxi. There is a beach bar there for refreshments. We loved our first time in Cape Verde and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Geri's lovely apartment. We hope you will too! Cat and Dan

  • We had a lovely stay at Villa Verde. The Apartment was immaculate, the development was quiet and friendly with some great amenities. Host was very helpful in run up to arrival. We were picked up directly at the airport and met by there apartment manager who was very helpful. Easy access to Santa Maria via shuttle or taxi. Can walk. Or just hang out on Ponta Preta and have a beer. As an extra touch they left us a bottle of Fizz and some Choccies are this was our honeymoon. The people Cape Verde are lovely and there is some cracking restaurants. Beer is quite drinkable too.

  • Zuerst einmal muss ich sagen, dass Geri sehr schnell antwortet und super hilfsbereit ist, auch wenn es nur darum geht, erste Informationen einzuholen. Ansonsten hat die Buchung reibungslos funktioniert. Trevor stand uns während des gesamten Aufenthaltes zur Verfügung und war grundsätzlich immer erreichbar. Ein kleines "Arrival pack" aus Milch, Eiern, Butter usw hat uns ermöglicht, den ersten Tag entspannt zu starten. :-) Das Appartement selbst ist sehr sehr geräumig und mit komfortablen Betten, 2 Bädern, sowie einer sehr modernen Küche ausgestattet. Auf dem Balkon lassen sich tagsüber perfekt die Sonnenstrahlen genießen, mehrere Pools Sorgen für die nötige Abkühlung. Mückenempfindliche Personen sollten in jedem Fall Insektenspray oder Autan mitnehmen, die Biester sind höchst aggressiv! Nun sind allerdings auch Netzte vor den Fenstern angebracht, sodass auch nachts alles aufgelassen werden kann. Generell hat und alles in allem sehr gut gefallen, ich würde allerdings empfehlen eher im November zur High Season, als um diese Zeit, wo kaum etwas los ist, zu fahren.

  • Logement tres propre bien equipe et spacieux avec une jolie vue sur la piscine qui vu le peu de personne pourrait passer pour notre piscine privee. Il peut parraitre un peu a l'ecart de santa maria mais avec le systeme de navette gratuite et de taxi a 3€ santa maria n'est qu'a 5 minutes. Un petit super marcher a 5 minutes a pied est aussi tres pratique. Nous avons passe une excellente semaine dans le logement de Geri qui a bien organise notre arrivee en pleine nuit avec le taxi qui a attendu notre entree dans les leux pour partir. Et lizzi qui nous a accueilli le lendemain etait de bon consieils. Merci Geri d'avoir tout bien organise.

  • We had a fantastic time at Penny's apartment and would definitely recommend it anytime. It is very new, modern, clean, well-equipped and has very easy access to the very big, very clean and well-maintained pool right outside. The apartment is located in the Melia Dunas resort which is a short cab ride away from Santa Maria. The beaches surrounding it are beautiful, albeit a little tricky to swim in as there are rocks and strong currents at times, however, they are great for walks and photo opportunities. The restaurants in the resort are totally overpriced, though the food is good, so you might want to treat yourself one night. Our favourite hang out was the local restaurant at Ponta Preta beach - amazing views and fantastic food. Penny is an excellent host, she was always at hand for questions and provided lots of very useful information for our stay. She can organise airport transfer which is extremely handy - the driver speaks very well English. All in all a great experience - thank you Penny!

Island of Sal The climate is fantastic, the locals and fellow holiday makers are friendly and welcoming, the food is amazing, the beaches are fantastic, year round sum. Local restaurants, bars, spas, 'Latino-Portuguese-African' blend of music and culture adds to relaxation. This is paradise! "No Stress" as the Cape Verde motto goes is so true! Cape Verde is just south of the Canaries and defiantly worth flying that extra hour south of the Canaries for more guaranteed sunshine, far superior beaches and unique blend of Brazilian/Portuguese/African culture. The island is a magnet for water sports with all forms of surfing (windsurfing championships held here January/February some years), boating, deep sea fishing, diving and snorkeling. Others like to sit back and watch the world go by and mop up the sunshine. Jazz and music festivals held May to August each year. Great base for island hopping for longer stay guests. Many love the thrill of quad bikes, which can be hired, alternatively, hire a bicycle and explore. Various excursions exist, too, including fishing trips, boat rides and Island hopping trips. Wildlife enthusiasts may wish to visit in turtle season. Island tours include a visit to the Salt Mine (more like a lagoon), Espargos and the Blue Eye which is an illusion in a sea edge cavern. In Santa Maria (the main tourist town) and Espargos (the capital city of the island) there are many shops which sell African crafts, food and drinks. Eating out varies from Cape Verdean restaurants serving fresh fish daily to British & Italian. Great bars in the town and along the edge of the beach in Santa Maria. Sal's tourist nationalities are typically British, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Scandinavian.

  • - Good communication from AJP before stay. - Good transfer to and from airport, appreciated extra 3G data and extra bottle of fizz in the welcome pack. - Nice townhouse (a few updates could make this a more finished article, new sofas, or even cushions for the sofa, new bathroom items - some items hanging off with poly filler or something similar, and a few general rust marks). Townhouse was lovely and spacious. - Although the lack of air con and no of water on the two different occasions was sorted in 48hrs. Would reccomend before each new let, that air con units are checked as part of the pre clean and checks, and that the back up water tank is full incase the mains water runs out in parts of the island again. - Although ants to be expected in hot climate, would reccomend a spray to be available for renters to use, so they can kill the ants and stop them getting too far or climbing the walls. When we purchased a spray, the little blighters soon dyed. Overall townhouse was nice, some issues slightly disappointing but owners/let agents were nice people and did sort out in the end. Nice complex, with nice pool areas and with easy to access town via reasonably priced taxis.
