“Fantastic Apartment with No Stress”
Reviewed 16 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This apartment has everything you could wish for, great location yet a five minute walk into Santa Maria very quiet on an evening, (unlikely the apartment in Porto Antigo we stayed in for the next two weeks which was above a bar and we paid double the price compared with our first week in this apartment!). Transfer was a breeze taxi from the airport and Shirley was waiting for us at the apartment with the keys. For the price this is a bargain. Would highly recommend - hopefully we will be back next January.
Keep up the good work and thanks again.

“Very good value for a clean and well equipped apartment in a quiet location close to the sea.”

This apartment is at the quieter end of Santa Maria about 15 min walk to the centre where there are plenty of places to eat and drink. The apartment was very clean and well equipped with even a wall safe (at no extra charge!). The sea is close but the beach here is rocky so you have to go to the pier where the huge sandy beach, featured on tourist brochures, begins. Santa Maria is still largely unspoilt and we found everyone unfailingly friendly and helpful and were not pestered at all. There are plenty of taxis with local journeys only costing 2-3 euros and the owner will arrange a taxi to collect and return you to the airport for only 15 euros. Its easy to get a visa on arrival and everywhere accepts euros so there is no need to change strerling to CVE's.

Stayed for 2 weeks. Apartment and block clean and bright with good security. Lovely sea view. Furnishings basic but functional and great value for the money when compared with others. The whole area in and around town is on the flat, ideal for walking or cycling. Windy but still very warm. The only paved areas are in the centre of Santa Maria and the capital of Espargos, everywhere else on the island is dirt tracks but easy to travel on. Deby is a good source for local information for persons with limited time on the island. Only used the cooking facilities for light bites as there is a wealth of various restaurant cuisine within easy walking distance. Only drawback was the dogs choir at certain times of the day. Shops for provisions are also just a stroll from the apartment. A tip for the street vendors is to haggle a purchase of a necklace and wrist-band on the first day and this can be shown when anyone approaches to attempt a sale. There are no vendors in the area of the apartment apart from the fruit/veg lady who passes by the apartment most days.
