Beautiful spot to relax
We stayed at the property in February 2019 for 11 days with our 2 children (14 and 6) its in a lovely spot and has beautiful views over the beach.
The facilities are well appointed and had everything you need including towels, tv, washing machine and internet is available at an extra cost.
The beds are a bit tired and could benefit from new mattresses but were ok. The shutters in the upstairs room were noisy during the night due to the wind so had to keep them open but this wasn’t a major issue.
The weather was beautiful and not overly windy but you do need a light jacket or jumper in the evenings. The pool is nice and the gardens are well kept although you may have trouble getting a lounger on busy days, but the beach is just over the road and the large balcony is also a nice spot to enjoy the sun and loungers are provided.
The small shop onsite was the cheapest prices we found but has a limited variey of products, but the shops in town had better choice.
I can recommend the Columbus restaurant across the road, reasonable prices and good food, also Cape Fruit a short walk away for breakfast.
It’s worth booking an island tour if you want to see all the sights we really enjoyed this but book at the tourist hut in town for the cheapest prices.
You do get bothered a bit in town from people wanting you to visit the indoor market but a quick no thanks or I’ve already been is all that’s needed. Beware the tourist shops and stalls as they do try to charge extortionate prices especially if you’ve got kids with you.
Also the quad bike hire are worth it for a fun afternoon.
If you’re looking for somewhere to relax and enjoy the loveley weather and beautiful views I would definitely recommend it.
I would also say it’s worth changing your money to the local currency rather than euros as you get more for your money, we did this at a bank in town for a small fee. Also try to get smaller notes as no one has change!
There are plenty if taxis available and it takes less than a few minutes to wait to flag one down it's between 15-20 Euro’s from the airport and a 2-3 Euro’s for a trip into town but it’s only 10-15 minutes walk.
The owner is friendly and offers support and advice, there is also an office onsite if you need any assistance during your stay.
I’m sure we will be back soon!
Thank you so much for taking the time to review the apartment and share your thoughts on the area. Sounds like you had a great trip and of course, we'd love to welcome you back again! I'll pass on your feedback regarding the beds, we're hoping to replace these soon.
Glad you had a lovely time.
Best apartment in the complex! lovely views and quiet location but still easy walking to get food
Had a lovely week, Great location and all very clean and the pool was great too. Slight problem with the air-conditioning which wasn't sorted during our stay and meant we couldn't sleep in the mezzanine but otherwise it was great
Thanks Alice, really pleased you had a great trip and enjoyed the apartment. As discussed, apologies for the air-conditioning problem and hope it didn't affect your stay too much. Hopefully we can welcome you back in the future :)
Rundherum schöner Urlaub
Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen, vor allem die schöne Lage mit herrlichem Blick über das Meer, die großzügige Terrasse beim Frühstücken und die wirklich komplette Einrichtung, mehr als man braucht!!
Die Wohnung war sauber und gepflegt, die Restaurants in der Nähe, kurz gesagt wir kommen wieder.
Lieber Elsbeth. Vielen Dank für das nette Feedback und wir freuen uns, dass Sie Ihren Urlaub genossen haben. Wir freuen uns, Sie bald wieder zu begrüßen!
Very relaxing holiday
Property was ideal in a great location. Enjoyed time just lying on the balcony, equally it was only a short walk to a lovely beach. Property was well epuipt and very peaceful. Their were ample places to eat and drink only a 10 minute walk away. The town pier was was brilliant for watching the locals bring in the fish, never knew tuna was so big. Will definitely be back.
Hi Colin. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the lovely feedback. We hope to welcome you again in the future. Have a lovely Christmas!
Bel appartement, belle vue...
Bel appartement, belle terrasse, très bien placé, l'hyper centre est accessible à pied, de jour comme de nuit, ainsi on est au calme.
Vue sur mer, piscine dans la résidence.
Les capverdiens sont à la hauteur de leur réputation, gentils, serviables, souriants et surtout le mot d'ordre "NO STRESS" rend les vacances géniales!
Nous avons apprécié la qualité de nombreux restaurants à Santa Maria ( et leur propreté).
Bref, nous reviendrons!
Ravi que vous avez apprécié vos vacances avec nous, bien sûr, nous serions ravis de vous revoir.

Absolutely perfect apartment in perfect situation, with easy access to a huge variety of restaurants, with fantastic views in all directions. Highly recommended. Photos shows if off very well. Penthouse was very clean although a little tired BUT perfect for us. We didn't use the daily clean service as we're tidy people. Manager was very helpful. Paid 8.50 Euros for 2 weeks internet. This must be one of the best apartments in Santa Maria but don't want to advertise it too much as may not be available when we want to go next year! BRILLIANT, many thanks
Absolutely delighted you enjoyed The Penthouse, See you next year x
This is an island full of character and culture. It is not commercialised yet although there is some development on the west coast of the island. The locals are cheery and the daily catch dragged onto the jetty is a great sight, they even cut fresh Tuna steaks for you!
The apartment is located on the second floor (top floor) within the Leme Bedje Complex with amazing views over the beach and windsurf centre and short walk from the centre of Santa Maria.
