Comfortable two storey villa with three (plus one) bedrooms and two bathrooms both revamped in 2013. A real sun trap as close to the ocean as permitted. Solid wood abounds including teak garden furniture, oiled wood shutters, and all wood interior furniture - a mixture of new and antique. Oak kitchen with varnished oak work surface. It has been furnished and improved as a home for aesthetics, comfort and practicality. Each room is uniquely decorated. Swing in the hammock and listen to the breeze rustling the oleanders and palm, and to the birds twittering. At night the sound of crickets and the ocean under the bright stars give a feeling of peace, far from the madding crowds. The tourist town of Santa Maria is only 10 minutes by motor. The resort was designed by a Cape Verdean architect and the high ceilings and overhangs keep the interior temperature pleasant by natural means. Hotel, restaurant, swimming pool, tennis court, bar, basic grocery store, small beaches and coves for swimming and snorkeling on site.
We holidayed in this villa before we bought. We liked being so close to the ocean, the direct sea view, sunbathing on our own roof terrace, the sounds of the waves and the warmth and cosiness of the outside dining area at night. With windows on three sides, there's lots of light and natural ventilation to enjoy being indoors too. There is a small beach within about 80 metres, for swimming and snorkelling, sunbathing or picnic. You will often be the only people there. The whole complex has security, and you can wander around freely, day or night, and just enjoy the simple things in life at the ocean's edge.
An extensive inventory is available upon request, to make this villa your home for your stay in Sal. Normally there is some food and drink for you to use and replenish so you don't come to a totally empty house. We have shipped full containers of furniture, equipment and decorations which we chose for this house which was already furnished. All windows have insect netting and there are oiled mahogany wood shutters on both floors. Shutters add security as well as keep out the sun's heat. If there are things flying around netting is very useful.
The owners have been letting property in the UK and overseas for over thirty years, and letting a villa in Sal since 2005.
