One bed light and airy corner apartment on the first floor of the prestigious Porto Antigo 2. Perfectly situated within the complex to benefit from superb unobstructed views of the large freshwater pool, gardens, beach and bay of Santa Maria from the spacious balcony.All furniture and fittings have been carefully chosen personally by the owners. The apartment is South facing making full use of the year round sunshine. Porto Antigo 2 has a unique, setting which borders the white sandy beach yet is only a short stroll from the captivating town where there are plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes. Perfect for a relaxing beach holiday in the sun with plenty of water sports on offer.
Porto Antigo 2 has a prime beach-front setting and the one of the best beaches on the island is literally on the doorstep. It is perfect for a wide range of watersports or simply swimming, sunbathing and relaxing in the fantastic year round climate.
Our apartment is one of only a few on the complex which benefits from the superb view of both the swimming pool and the bay of Santa Maria.
The apartment will be cleaned & sheets and towels changed once for a 7 night stay and three times for a 14 night holiday.
Beach towels can be exchanged daily at no extra charge.
We offer a 24 hour English speaking reception service.
Santa Maria is one of the worlds top locations for wind and kite surfing as well as being an excellent destination for fishing, diving and sailing. There is a good selection of mini-markets and delicatessens in town as well as the local bakery situated on the street behind Porto Antigo. Fresh is landed daily at the nearby pier. Alternatively there are plenty of restaurants to suit all tastes from Italian, Chinese and Indian to superb local Cape Verdean cuisine.
The airport on Sal is just an easy 15 minute drive from Santa Maria. The cost for a taxi is just 10 euros. Pre-booking is not necessary as there are always plenty available at the airport. Car hire is not essential as most things are within walking distance from the apartment.
We booked this apartment on a personal recommendation from a friend who had stayed there last year and were pleasantly surprised that everything was just as they had described.
The location has to be the best on the island. A quiet relaxing pool area with a beautiful beach right in front of the apartment. It was the perfect base to explore the charming town of Santa Maria with it's mix of European and African culture.
The apartment had everything we needed and the interior was of a high quality and well maintained. Although not a large apartment it was plenty big enough for a couple and the balcony was spacious with the added bonus that it overlooked the beach and pool area. We did have a power cut one morning for a couple of hours but this did not spoil our enjoyment.
We didn't eat in the apartment much as there were many different restaurants to choose from and the prices were very reasonable. Our favourite find was "Caranguejo" a small restaurant in the centre of Santa Maria serving delicious homemade pizzas and local fish and meat dishes.
We had sunshine everyday and were grateful for the air conditioning and fans provided.
A week went far too quickly and next time we will stay for longer.
We would recommend this apartment to a couple or two friends who are looking for a relaxing or water sports holiday in the sun.
A special thank you to Sandra who answered all our emails quickly and provided all the information we required. We will be in touch soon.

We were really impressed with the apartment and complex.
The location was perfect no need for hire cars or taxis. We were really glad we chose to stay in the town of Santa Maria and not on one of the big developments near the airport.
The apartment was of a high standard, spotlessly clean and well equipped.
Santa Maria was quiet but charming. I believe it is busier in the winter months but this suited us perfectly as there were still plenty of lovely restaurants open to eat in and some great beach bars next to Porto Antigo complex.
Our days were spent round the pool or on the beach right in front of the apartment. Our idea of bliss!
We would love to return and would definitely choose to stay in the same apartment again.
I really don't like giving amazing reviews because selfishly if I tell people how good the place is, it's harder for me to book it again when I want to.
The apartment is amazing though, location you can't fault and the view from the balcony is perfect. It has everything you'll need for a holiday.
It's spotlessly clean, the kitchen has everything you'll need if you want to self cater, the air con is great and everything is modern. This definitely gets a 10/10.
Simple apartment, close to beach and pool, with lovely view from balcony.
Apartment well stocked with cooking and kitchen appliances and utensils.
Only negative comment is that apartment could have done with another clean and change of sheets and towels during stay.
Santa Maria is a small town with some fabulous restaurants to suit all budgets, and a wide variety of shops.
You can walk for miles along the beach
Just returned from a lovely week in the warm sunshine. Very pleased with Sandra's apartment. The description and photographs in the advert were genuine and accurate which was a great relief as this was the first time we have booked accommodation ourselves. Usually we go on package holidays but this was so much better.
Check in was quick and easy and when we reported a light bulb not working it was quickly replaced. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. There was no free wifi but we used one of the beach bars near to the complex that offered wifi so it was not a problem.
We ate all our breakfasts on the balcony watching the fishing boats and for evening meals we enjoyed eating out in Santa Maria. We found lots of choice and all the restaurants were really close by.
The island is still developing but this was all part of the charm.
We can honestly say we felt very pleased with our choice of both apartment and complex and would love to return in the future.
We had a great stay in Sandra's lovely apartment which had everything we needed plus amazing views over Santa Maria beach. We loved our time here and would definitely come back! Great communication leading up to our holiday with lots of useful tips. Thanks Sandra
Porto Antigo is one of only a few true front line developments actually situated in Santa Maria with apartments to rent. It benefits from a large freshwater swimming pool. There are new comfortable sun loungers round the pool on the sun deck. The complex is attractively landscaped as the photographs show and you are literally only steps away from the beach, sea and fishing pier. There are no roads to cross.It is a peaceful complex yet is within a couple of minutes walk to the centre of Santa Maria with it's bars, restaurants and colourful shops. A fantastic beach location in a much sought after complex.
Other Activities: Great for all types of water based activities and enjoying life in the sun.
