“Great location”

Just got back from a half term break with Hubby and 15 year old son. What a great spot. Believe all the reviews about the wind however don't let it put you off. We didn't really know what to expect as the only people we knew who had visited had travelled 'all inclusive' and I was a little concerned there would be nothing there for the independent traveller. A recent programme showcasing the area for buying a holiday home abroad made me feel better. The apartment is spot on location wise, yes you really can see the pool then the beach from the balcony. There is security however I think that must be just to prevent beach goers hogging the pool as we saw no problems. There are shops and restaurants/bars very close, both through the front street entrance and back beach entrance. There is ample to so most of it activity based - a lot of watersports and also things like island tours and Segway trips, we saw a few horses around too. 'No stress' is the local catch phrase and you definitely feel that way. Loraine is quick to respond to queries and offer advice. Wifi was arranged, it would be nice to have this included as standard these days. All in all we had a great time.

Thank you Phillipa and family so pleased you've enjoyed the apartment and Cape Verde, yes it is a very safe place and security is just to stop people not staying using pool. So glad the wifi router we offered was good for you

“Lovely”
Reviewed 19 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Kept up to date with owner. Answered all questions , probably pestered her with emails so my apologies.
Great apartment with stunning views.
You will have no problems staying here.
We were a bit annoyed as we were told to move our towels after 50 mins for putting towels down . Nothing to do with Lorraine but it is to do with other guests using their pool so it's not the owners fault. It is just a recent thing as Lorraine explained and also with the fact the guys around pool didn't know we were staying in Apartment 56 .
Apart from that apartments location, amenities and views were all top notch so 5 stars . Would defo go back .

Thank you for review, glad you enjoyed your stay, we are here to be pestered, sorry about the towels, yes our security guys have just been given new instructions, as people were reserving beds with towels for best part of day and not using them, that means other guests could not get a bed by the pool.

“Amazing ... Fabulous ... Terrific ... Wonderful ... Perfect ...”
Reviewed 25 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We had 2 wonderful weeks in Apartment 2 (not 56 - but they are owned by the same people). Whilst Apt 56 is on the first floor, Apt 2 is on the ground floor and - in our opinion - has the best location in Santa Maria. The location literally could not be any better, just a few feet from the beach and right next to the immaculately kept private pool area, with shops, restaurants and the bakery within a short walk.

Apartment 2 has 3 decent sized bedrooms (the largest room, a twin, being on the mezzanine floor), a large kitchen/diner/lounge and a shower room complete with bidet. The jewel in the crown for us was the huge patio with views over the beach and sea and, to the side, the pool. Already I'm missing my early morning cuppa out there before the rest of the family awoke!

This is clearly a well kept family home which has a great assortment of cooking equipment (there is no oven, but there is a microwave/grill, a George Foreman grill and a sandwich toaster) plus tons of local information, books, DVDs (not that we ever sat inside to be able to watch them!) and an assortment of games.

On site, all the staff were helpful and attentive and the owner, Lorraine, was incredibly efficient throughout the whole process, from booking, through to advice whilst we were there. She also arranged for us to be collected in style from the airport as it was my son's 14th birthday on the day we arrived: Alex and Stefan picked us up in a pick-up with bench seats in the back which the kids loved! They were a great source of local info and lovely guys too. Alex sings in many of the local bars 6 nights a week and is well worth seeking out for an enjoyable evening's entertainment.

We have stayed in Santa Maria previously but we think this is the best apartment in the town - and judging by the number of people who admired it as they passed, we were not the only ones! We can't wait to return next year.

“Fantastic relaxing holiday in amazing location”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

people found this review helpful

We arrived and as soon as we walked into No. 56 we could see the amazing view - it looks out over the pool and the edge of the pool falls on to the beach and ocean. There is a mezzanine floor up stairs which is a really good size and houses 2 single beds and a dressing table and wardrobe. the whole apartment is very airy and it has a balcony to sit and eat, play cards, read or just look at the amazing view.

there is a set of steps up to the back of the apartment - they are not long or steep but it would not suit anybody with limited mobility.

We had an amazing holiday and would definitely return.
We contacted the owner during our stay to ask a few questions and they were more than helpful - great owners
