Interaction with Guests
I will interact via email with my guests as I will probably be in Europe when you visit the flat.
Jerome who lives on the flat right above us will be able to guide you and give you some information if you need anything.
He will also organise the transfer for you from the airport to the flat for about 10 to 15 euros (check the price with the driver upon arrival).
The driver will have the keys to the flat. Easy.
I just love being in the middle of the village and yet be 3 minutes walk from the beach.
The neighbourhood is very safe.
The only people living in the building are Jerome, a friend who lives there with his family and us.
There's a very great feeling about the place.
The flat is right in the middle of the village so you don't need a car.
If you want to go to kite beach or to do a tour around the island, you can always take a taxi or rent a car to one of the many companies available.
Other Things to Note
We fell in love with Cape Verde and Sal seven years ago when we first came to do kite surfing.
We kept coming and coming year after year, sometimes twice a year.
Last year, we did a documentary about 3 kids on the island. It's called the Boys from Ponta Preta.
(You can view it on vimeo)
Soon after finishing the film, we decided to buy the studio apartment. We decorated it for it to feel like "home".
The purpose is for us to help discovering the place to our friends and other people as it's such an amazing destination for surfing, kitesurfing, and windsurfing.
We could go on and on about how amazing Cape Verdian people are and how friendly and welcoming they have always been with us.
That's what the Cape Verde experience is all about.
A/C is not included in the price.
It’s 35 euros per week. If you need/want it, just ask for the remote control.

Alles in Ordnung. Wir hatten eine ganz schöne Zeit in Santa Maria.
Nach unserer Ankunft am Flughafen wurden wir wie mit Sophie besprochen vom Taxi abgeholt. Der Schlüssel für die Wohnung war organisiert, die Wohnung tip top. Gut gelegen nah am Zentrum, angemessen ruhig. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Bank ganz in der Nähe. Sophie hat uns in jeder erdenklichen Situation geholfen und Tips gegeben. Thanks Sophie.
Sophie was very helpful with further tips about Sal, e.g.kitesurf schools, or the organization of the transfer. She provided a document with names of spots, bars and restaurants that were indeed the best locations. Although there's no wlan in the apartment you can get free wlan on the public square.
We had a great time in Sophies apartment. Everything was organized perfectly (airport transfer, keys etc.). Especially Jerome was very friendly and helpful. The flat was very clean and comfortable. The only thing you should know is that the apartment is directly at a noisy street, just in case if you like to sleep with open window. Nevertheless we definitely recommend the apartment.
Had a great time at Sophie's place... It's really central and near to the beach! We didn't meet Sophie personally but she organized everything very good! Tnx Sophie
Het appartement was exact zoals beschreven zoals in de advertentie. Bij aankomst was alles piekfijn in orde. Leuke locatie, zeer goed gelegen bij alle restaurants/ bars en vlakbij het strand. We waren wel blij dat we oorsdopjes bijhadden, er was 's nachts vaak lawaai vanop straat...
Zowel transfer van/naar de vlieghaven als overhandigen van de sleutels verliep zeer vlot.

About the Host, Sophie
I am a London-based French photographer.
I fell in love with Cape Verde when I first went there on holiday 10 years ago. So 2 years ago, I decided to buy a flat there. It makes me happy to know that I own a little piece of this paradise.
