Good points were that the apartment was good. Spacious good balconies with good view and could sunbathe . Shower was great.
Bad points . Check in not until 3 . 4 30 before somone came to clean apartment .
Was very cold and apartment was high up so we were cold at night . No blankets just ONE sheet to keep us warm . Slept with clothes on and beach towels over us. We asked owner about blankets and were asked there is only supposed to be 1 person . Sent confirmation of booking for 3 people . No response . Person you get keys for not very helpfull either .
If we came back to Cape Very (really doubt ) i will stay where i have stayed before .
The last guests I believe did not leave till the last minute.It is very rare that it is cold in Cape Verde and there are now blankets in the apartment just in case.On the Emails the client sent me it said one person but when I checked the original booking it Said there were Three people that was. Something to do with ownersdirect not sure why.I have told my agent to be more helpful.
Great owner - Shoddy management
The apartment is great but had faults, door to the twin bedroom balcony was hanging off, major ant problem and nobody knew anything about keys. Fortunately the owner had provided the keysafe number.
All worked OK but the management agent refused to speak to us, claiming she didn't speak English, other owners who were there at the time said that she ALWAYS does this, so we couldn't arrange extra cleaning (and there are no brooms / dust pans provided) and had to go and buy our own extra towels. Also only two sunlounger mattresses and the two single beds need the mattresses replacing.
Prachtig uitzicht. Net appartement. Als je iets mist mailen naar reisagent en er word direct gereag
Mooi uizicht over zwembad en zee. Midden in het dorp met lokale bevolking met eetcafe en andere gelegenheden. Super geweest
Mooi en net appartement
Thank you for your comments I am glad you liked the apartment and Santa Maria.Mike
SIMPLY SPECTACULAR! Very recommended
We spent two weeks in August in Mike's apartment and we had a great time.
The keys were handed over by a travel agency located in the same building of the apartment, managed by two gentle sisters, which also managed the guided tour of the island and more for us... THANK YOU!
This self-catering apartment is clean, spacious, comfortable and perfectly located in Santa Maria. It's just a few steps away from the center, shops, supermarkets, pubs and restaurants.
And... it has direct access to the beach!
The big seafront terrace on the back side, offers a great view on the swimming pool and the beautiful sea (exactly as illustrated on the pictures of the announcement).
There is another terrace on the street side, useful for drying laundry.
The living room with open kitchen is also quite big and the air conditioning cools the entire apartment... even if, opening the windows on both sides, there was a pleasant temperature in the house.
Security and cleaning staff are very friendly and the entire residence is accurately supervised and cleaned.
We surely recommend Mike's apartment, if you wish to spend your holidays on Sal Island.
Coast/Beach: The beach is a few metres from the apartment as per pictures as is the coast. The beach is as perfect as you can get. It consists of fine powdery sand all along the fantastic long beach. the sea is also clean and turquoise in colour. There is no pollution on the beach. Travel: Sal airport is a short taxi drive away of about 12 minutes. You do not need to hire a car as the Island is not very large. There is a bus service from Sal to the only other town of Espargos which costs 1 euro each way or 10 Euro for a taxi there. Distances: There is only one other town on the Island and that is called Espargos which is ten kilometeres away. There are also the old salt mines which are located near Espargos in an old extinct Volcano which is quite interesting as part of it is still in use. There is a turtle sanctuary located along the coast as well. Further Details: The town of Santa Maria has all the facilities as other small resorts ie The local bakery is located on the next street. Because the apartment is located centrally in the middle of the town all the shops and restaurants are only a short walk away as are the banks. There is also quad biking and buggy driving to do as well. You can go scuba diving and fishing from the pier or from a boat. There is also kite surfing wind surfing and all other water sports including jet ski riding as well.
