Geraldine purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Geraldine chose Santa Maria
This is a personally furnished and equipped apt., giving a first class luxury and comfortable stay for any guest, whether self catering or using all inclusive or partial hotel packages. Lovely island with guaranteed (almostl), ALL YEAR ROUND SUN. All mod cons here, but island and towns/villages retaining original African/Portuguese charm.
What makes this Apartment unique
A luxurious apt having it's own private patio leading from the sitting room, overlooking and close to the pool and gardens, bar and the many facilities and amenities of a 5 star hotel, giving a brilliant relaxing or activity holiday for all age groups. 5 min taxi ride to Santa Maria with many restaurants and bars to suit all budgets and tastes.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great stay, really nice apartment on a fantastic resort. The owner could not do enough to help.
Lovely property - ideal for family of three. Would definitely come again.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Home from home
We spent a week in the apartment and there was everything that we required. No complaints whatsoever.
Thank you for your review. We're happy you enjoyed your stay, hope to see you again sometime, either here or perhaps in boa Vista?
A fantastic holiday
Just came back from a 3 week stay at Geraldine apartment. We have a great time her apartment has everything that you need . We had a couple of hiccups one that was our doing which were both dealt with quickly by Geraldine. The complex is really lovely. There is entertainment each night on the complex.Santa Maria is a taxi ride away where you can go to eat at one of the many restaurants. We also went in during the days , many little shops to go and buy some souvenirs of your visit to Cape Verde. All in all we had a great time and as they say over there No Stress.
Jane and partner were great guests, very communicative which always helps. A pleasure to have them stay and they would be most welcome any time either here or on Boa Vista. Thanks again for choosing my apt.
We travelled as a family with kids, and stayed in Geri apartment, and couldn't be better. The resort is huge and new, the staff is so gentlle, have so many different pools (heaven for the children), and Geri is a nice and so sweet host, always asking if we need something, and if the trip is gone well. We arrived at night, and we had some food waiting for us, for the breakfast in the next morning (milk, coffee, bread, butter, etc, etc,). Wonderful ideia when you have kids and arrive so late.
The apartment was very clean, and at night is very quiet
We hope to came back!!
Great apt and resort. Easy to travel into Santa Maria.
From the beginning Geraldine was very helpful, answering every question quickly. The location of apt is perfect, opposite a beautiful pool and short walk to hotel reception, all other pools/amenities and gorgeous beach. The apt is bright and comfortable and everything is as described. It has a pretty garden which has a shady patio for breakfast then full sun till evening. There s a courtesy bus or cheap taxis into Santa Maria tho we enjoyed the walk. In fact we enjoyed it so much we have already booked it for next year.
Absolutely great guests, a pleasure to host. Were quick to inform me of any problems, so things could be put right as soon as possible (although everything in Cabo Verde is very laid back and relaxed - manyana is next week, or next month!!). Look forward to seeing them again next year. Thank you Maureen and Colin.
Perfect apartment and fantastic location.
I had a lovely stay at Geri's apartment. Everything in the apartment is accurately described. The apartment offers plenty of amenities which is part of the resort. The city of Santa Maria is only a 5 minute taxi ride. Overall a pleasant experience and a fantastic holiday.
Thank you, Dat, for a nice review. I am very happy you enjoyed your holiday in my apt and the resort/town etc. You found some nice things to do! I look forward to hosting you again. Gx
