About Jayne Edwards

We are a couple from Manchester who wanted a holiday home with all year round sunshine.

We like Self-Catering holidays rather than All Inclusive because we like to explore and sample everything the area has to offer.

Jayne Edwards purchased this house in 2011

Why Jayne Edwards chose Santa Maria

We holidayed here in 2008 and fell in love with the place. The climate is fantastic! We found the locals were really friendly and the food fabulous.

What makes this house unique

We chose this house because it leads directly to the large swimming pool, the main resort Clubhouse and the childrens play area.

Dec 2016 - Holiday Cape Verde

  • 5 of 5

The town house was beautiful -- far more spacious than we had anticipated -- the bedrooms are a very good size - Loads of wardrobe space - lovely en-suite bathrooms, There is a good size roof top terrace with another good size terrace on the ground floor which overlooks the gardens. The House was very clean and modern -- we would definitely return to this property -- the owners were very helpful with information for our stay --

The location of the property is very quiet and is about a 10 minute bus ride from Santa Maria town but there is a free bus at allocated times from the resort although a taxi is not expensive. The location suited ourselves as we wanted somewhere quiet - The complex that the townhouse is on has a small supermarket which does stock all the necessities and a few eating places -- but for restaurants you do need to go into Santa Marie (The buses do run in an evening) --

On the resort there is a swimming pool very near house and I understand that there is also tennis court which again are on the resort and near to the town house but we did not use these.

The beach is about a 10 - 15 minutes walk

The food in all the restaurants we ate in was excellent with the prices being very similar to the UK

The Island and resort gave us exactly what we wanted a very relaxing and quiet holiday.

Het huis zag er op zich prima uit, wel een paar opmerkingen:

er is lekkage in de eerste badkamer, dit is te zien wanneer je aan de eethoek zit, daar druppelt het uit de muur.

En de matrassen van de 1-persoonsbedden zijn aan vervanging toe.

Verder hebben we enorm genoten op het resort, heerlijk rustig en super vriendelijk personeel, heel behulpvaardig. Kortom: een heerlijke vakantie gehad met super mooi weer!

Owner's Response: Hi Sandra Thank you for your comments. The leak was unfortunate and is being fixed by maintenance very soon. Sorry if this caused you any inconvenience. The single beds have hardly been used and mattress toppers have been placed on them for extra comfort. I'm pleased that you enjoyed your holiday.
