“Great apartment and fantastic guest support and welcome”

This is a great apartment in the quieter part of Santa Maria. The photos are pretty accurate and real. It is spacious, clean and well looked after with sufficient in the kitchen to self-cater and very quiet. There is lots of space and furniture and equipment was in good condition. We liked the large fridge freezer, comfortable beds, large balcony with comfy loungers and the good showers in both bathrooms. Bed linen and towels were fine too. There is air-conditioning but we didn’t need to use it as the sea breeze was sufficiently cooling all day and night. The balcony enjoys great sea views and for watching wind surfers during the day and for some fabulous sunsets in the evening– there is an unfinished single storey building indirectly front but it doesn’t inhibit the view. We organised a mid-stay clean as well – useful as it’s windy in Cape Verde so sand seems to get in whatever you try to do.
Ilaria is a wonderful hostess. She is so welcoming and helpful and really cares, and she wanted to make sure we had a great holiday - which we did. Nothing was too much trouble and when things didn't work first time she was immediately there to sort it out. She has lots of advice and suggestions of where to go and what to do so it feels like having a personal rep on hand.
This was our fourth visit to Santa Maria and we like the Antonio Sousa beach area having previously rented an apartment in Leme Bedje – but we found it was sometimes quite noisy there. The apartment is close to Angulos (our favourite bar) and there are a couple more bars now to choose from including the smart Fashion Beach Club (which has a pool). Sea swimming is better nearer Santa Maria where there are also lots of bars and restaurants but there are a couple of good walks along the sea near the apartment. It’s just a 10-15 minute walk into town, a strolling distance we were happy with, especially as it’s so much quieter at Antonio Sousa.
The supermarket nearby isn’t as good as it once was but the taxi round-trip to Cazu was 5Euros and they were pretty well stocked this time.
