Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The appartment is more than right. We arrived very late at night and somebody was waiting for us. Is clean and well equipped. Right in the center of town, where the action is. Swimming pool is great. Is right is noisy but nothing you can't do with a pair of earplugs.
    Concerning the matress of the mezzanine, is a bit soft but is 190 cm long wich is right.
    The shower is great and the kitchen too.
    We had no problems at all.
    A good value for money.

  • nice apartment in the center of Santa Maria. Well equipped and in good shape. Sometimes some noise from the pubs around could be heard, but nothing that could not be slept through. Linda and Gary where helpful all the way and quick to respond to any messages and questions.

  • Very nice apartment in the very city centre of Santa Maria. Shops, bars, restaurants are around the corner, just as the beach.
    We enjoyed our stay in the apartment very much and very glad not to have chosen for one of the large hotels in the neighbourhood.

    The only downside of the apartment is indeed that it is noisy, but after days of kite surfing and diving we have little problems sleeping in the end...
    The arranged taxi driver (Ildo) was very helpful and airport transport was smooth this way..

    Many thanks for their kindness
    Perhaps I will repeat one day...

  • Beautiful and confortable apartment, clean and new. We have felt ourselves very well. It has everything necessary, even to cook yourself.
    At night you can hear the music from the nearby bar, but that did not bother us.
    All in all a very nice holiday. Thank you!

  • We had a great time in the apartment from Gary and Linda. Everything is exactly like the pictures, very spacious and clean. The location is in the city center of Santa Maria and a 2 minute walk to the beach. The communication with Gary and Linda was excellent; they were very quick in replying to e-mails and even arranged a pick-up at the airport. We wanted to stay two extra nights in the apartment, as the apartment was still available, it wasn’t a problem.

    We didn’t have problems with the noise, but like the other reviewers mentioned; if you are a light sleeper bring your earplugs.

    Thanks again for the stay in your lovely apartment!

  • A lovely appartment in the middle of Santa Maria! We enjoyed our stay. The taxi driver Lidho (who picked us up from the airport) was a friendly guy. The appartment got everything you need for a nice stay. As mentioned in other reviews there is noise from outside. Especially during the weekends. So bring earplugs or enjoy the evening life of santa maria and you will have a good time!

    May 2013
  • it was just like the pictures showed us! clean, spacious, good location. The nights get a bit noisy, but we came prepared with earplugs, so we slept perfectly!

    Taxi-driver Ildo is a great guy!

    Thanks for the stay.

  • Santa Maria may not show the most authentic side of Cape Verdian culture, but the neighbourhood is safe and easy.
    The apartment has many advantages : near the beach, the restaurants and the shops.
    Everything is very clean and just like it is described.

    Thanks Linda & Gary!
