“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The Santa maria residence is a super charming flat with all comfort that you need to spend great holidays in the island of Sal, Cabo Verde.
It's a 10 minutes walk from the center of Santa Maria where night life and shopping happen, but we're sure you'll enjoy that little walk under the stars after a nice dinner downtown.

You'll surely have a sort of "protection angel" that you'll probably never see, while staying at the Santa Maria Residence. We've experienced a day without electricity, and on our coming home at night we found a couple of candles and a lighter in front of our door, with a little note: "in case you need"...... What a lovely experience.

The contact with David was great also, everything was combined through email, even the code to open the safe where the key was hidden. We absolutely recommend this house!

Thank you once again David

Many thanks N for your review. The pots and pans will be replaced on my next visit to the flat, I don't think that many people cook and they are used very little hence why it had been missed that some had started to rust.

You state that the balcony is in the shade for most of the day.. I think this is a little misleading... I would agree that there is almost always some shade on the balcony but that there is also always sufficient sun to sunbath on the balcony year round.

I am glad you made the comment about the absence of mosquitos it is a regular question I am asked by guests prior to their visit. Occasionally there are one or 2 but normally there are none. Fitted to the flat is an electronic insect repelled which can be used by guests if they wish.

Thanks again for your review and we would welcome you back anytime

Regards

David

Many thanks for the review. As proven by this review the flat is Large spacious and nice...!

yes it is a 10 minute walk into town, its not far and its a nice walk. Many of the other resort locations are miles outside town and you need to catch a taxi in and out.

The balcony is fabulous with panoramic views over virtually 180 degrees along the beach. The nearby surf shack is The Josh Angulo Surf/Kite/Windsurf School which is about 300m away. They serve great food, cold beer and ice creams!

Am really glad you enjoyed your holiday

Thanks again

“Relaxing winter sun”
Reviewed 30 March 2012 for a stay in January 2012

We wanted a winter sun getaway and chose Sal mainly for the kite surfing and water sports. Although some parts of Sal/Santa Maria are undergoing development the apartment is in the best location on a quiet stretch of beach but within easy walking distance of the main town. The balcony is perfect for relaxing and gazing out to sea. The apartment is very well equipped with everything you need for your stay, hairdryer, cooking equipment (although we ate out most nights), and stereo.
David the owner was very helpful before and during our stay and arranged for a Taxi to pick us up from the airport. He was full of helpful advice about Cape Verde and the local area.
The locals are very friendly and proud of their island, always keen for you to look in their shop but if you are courteous they do not hassle too much. As I was told many times “We are here for you....No Stress! Be happy!”
Angulo’s windsurf centre is a short stroll down the beach and offers the best tuna burger I have ever tasted, a great spot to watch the sea and listen to some chilled out music. There are many places to eat and drink in town. I recommend Gigi’s for good Italian food at a reasonable price, Leonardos if you really want to treat yourself. Take a taxi to the restaurant on the beach at Ponta Preta for a cold beer or basic lunch and watch the Kite/surf action next to the giant sand dune.
I would highly recommend place for anyone wanting a winter sun fix and it is a must for anyone into windsurfing, kite surfing, surfing, fishing, or just relaxing in the sun. I’m really missing that balcony!
