“Very clean, comfortable and quiet get away”
Reviewed 7 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Geraldine is an excellent host and her apartment was just what we were looking for in terms of a private, quiet get away for our honey moon. She was also easy to contact and responded quickly to our requests before and during our stay.

Bea and her new husband were super guests and very communicative. We tried to make their honeymoon as good as possible, despite a hiccup with the taxi pick up at the beginning, which was quickly and easily resolved. Do hope they can visit again.

Just spent a great week in this apartment with our 3 children age 15, 13,11. Eldest was on the sofa bed in the lounge area but this worked out fine. The apartment itself is clean and well furnished. Comfy beds. Its on the ground floor so great access to the pool which is a matter of yards away. The owner was very friendly and quick to respond to any queries. We were met on arrival by the apartment managers who went through everything with us and were contactable during our stay.
The resort is quite big but not busy at all. It has a basic supermarket, a bakery, a restaurant and a bar. It felt like there was hardly anyone there at times. It is definitely not a noisy place so if rest and relaxation is what you require this is perfect. You can walk to a beach in about 10 minutes (Ponta Preta) which is beautiful and has a lovely restaurant (which we visited twice we enjoyed it so much) but its not really a sunbathing beach - most people head in to the town for beach. The town is a free bus ride away (or about an hours walk along the beach) and is interesting and lively. Lots of bars, restaurants and a fabulous beach - the one you see in all the pictures! (Santa Maria) Our children loved to be there and soak up the atmosphere. Watersports of all sorts on the beach. Beautiful sand, clean and un crowded.
Cape Verde is an intriguing place- I'd like to go back and would definitely go back to this apartment again I do. There are island tours you can do but we didn't, preferring to just have a week of doing very little. A fab holiday.

Thank you Helen for a great review. Am surprised it was SO quiet, but we're going into low season now. Since the new management took over it has been busier plus there are more amenities around the resort and the very thriving town of Santa Maria is nearby so you can choose quiet or busy depending on your mood, or the kids can go off snorkeling etc whilst you relax... . . I look forward to hosting you again!!

“Quiet and Relaxing”
Reviewed 8 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

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.

Best Points:
- Met at the Airport
- Quiet with Good Amenities.
- Shuttle Bus
- Great View
- Chorizo Bread from the Site Bakery.
- Choccies :-)
- Eat at Chez Pastis....book in advance it's tiny and tables are hard to come by.

So pleased you both had a good time, and that everything was ok! You certainly made the most of your time there tryiing out many of the local amenities. It is very important to me that my guest's holiday is actually a restful holiday and not a hassle!! (Apart from things out of our control of course). I look forward to hosting you again, either here or Boa Vista (a different island altogether) perhaps? Many thanks again.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed 7 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The apartment is very nice and has all you need and the complex is also good but quiet. You can stay in your own area and have a very relaxing time by a quiet pool or join one of the others buildings on the complex (each with their own large pool) and soak up a different atmosphere (busier). One of the other buildings is operated by a Tour operator and has a pool bar where you can also have drinks and snacks. We enjoyed our own very large pool with only a few others sharing. The kids loved the space. There is a free shuttle bus to town that runs at certain times which was always busy and everyone pushing to get on. Limited seats on the bus but taxis are always there as a back up and not so expensive. The whole family came back relaxed and refreshed and have said we will go again in a couple of years.

Thank you for your review Shaun. I'm very happy you and the family enjoyed yourselves. It is a very busy time of year - so sorry the shuttle bus was so busy - I was there the week before and hardly anyone on it. That's Xmas and New Year for you plus the resort is getting busier since the new management have taken over and everything now is much smarter! I'm sure they will be improving the shuttle bus service as needed. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

“Relax No Stress”
Reviewed 4 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Arrived a little later than planned but most airlines are like the railways these days, a little late but get there in the end. Met by Trevor at the apartment who gave us the VIP tour & how to use everything including the wireless sim card. Superb leather sofas, one could be made into a double bed for larger parties, fully fitted kitchen including washing machine. The two large bedrooms, one had two singles the other had a kingsize bed and an en-suite both are bigger than our own at home so really spacious. Very comfortable dinning table solid wood and there is an outside table & chairs on the terrace just the thing for breakfast on the terrace overlooking the large pool & play area, had to feed the small birds though who join you for breakfast. We would never have thought we had the whole the pool to ourselves on most days, it was really peaceful, no sunbed hoggers putting towels on the sunbeds at six in the morning, screaming kids or 18-30's making fools of themselves a real pleasure to relax there. Small mini market on site along with a restaurant and a bank with ATM, most important was the bar at the Cactus block across the way that served a reasonable snack menu with the drink of your choice up to 9 pm, great if you don't want to move off site but it is only 3 euros each way to Santa Maria or free if you use the shuttle bus, Trevor gives you the passes for that. Plenty of bars restaurants in Santa Maria many on the beach others within easy walking distance. For days out & about there are fishing trips, jet skis, Kite surfing and for the more sedate of us there is boat trip or a full day island tour for 25 euros each. Peddlers can be a bit of a pain on the beach and around the jetty but just say no or haggle the price down most will settle for six or seven euros even though they start at 15-12
