This spacious, well-equipped villa was perfect for our two week stay on Sal and was exactly as described on the website. Everything was provided inside and out and the pool was cleaned every day. We were met at the airport by a very friendly, English speaking taxi driver who became our dedicated driver for our entire stay. On arrival at the villa we were met by Trevor, who introduced us to the villa and was a very useful source of information and advice regarding all aspects of our holiday. The resort itself was quiet but the supermarket on-site was ideal for basics and essentials. The main town of Santa Maria with its numerous bars and restaurants was only 5 minutes away by taxi, or a 10 minute stroll to the restaurant on Ponta Preta beach was great for lunches. The information given, and the arrangements made, by Paul and Sandy meant that our holiday got off to a great start and stayed that way! H & B

Hi Paul We had a great holiday with wall to wall sunshine. The villa was perfect for our needs and your tips were extremely useful in regard to eating places and, in particular, your taxi driver whom we found to be excellent and extremely prompt and reliable. We used him quite a lot. Presumably the recession has reduced the number of visitors but it did mean that the area was quiet and relaxing when we were in the villa. We would have no hesitation in recommending the villa and are very likely to return in the future, although perhaps next year. Thank you for all your help and interest. Regards A W

Firstly the information that is given by owners, Paul and Sandy, is great. There are comprehensive details about the villa, the surrounding area, taxi charges etc. There is a list of restaurants - their cuisine and prices making the choice in the evening very simple. There is even listed the name of a taxi driver and his number to you can book a taxi. The villa itself surpassed our expectations. It is extremely comfortable with every mod con available. Small things like having plenty of glasses, cutlery, cups etc so you are not having to wash up all the time. The villa is furnished to a very high standard. The sun terrace outside is definitely a sun trap at all times of the day. The pool is great for cooling off in. We walked to the beach each day, the bar serves great salads. We ate out every night and always felt safe walking around Santa Maria in the evenings. If you are looking for guaranteed sunshine, a no hassle holiday, in a very comfortable villa then this is the place for you !!! ZC

Back from 2 glorious weeks in the winter sun and the combination of an excellent modern Villa (just as described), a short walk to the local white sandy beaches (stretching for more miles than you will ever cover), and the quaint local town of Santa Maria (mixed in with the friendliness of the Cape Verdean people) has left us totally chilled from our "wintersun" holiday in Sal over the festive period. If you love your water sports or just watching them, enjoy warm winds meeting the Atlantic waves, constantly dry hot weather, good local food/hospitality, and the simple charm of a relatively undeveloped island, then this is for you. Being in a less economically developed area may mean experiencing some servicing issues from time to time but donít let this put you off as overall the location is a gem of a place and the villa owners will do their utmost to support you to ensure you have a great time during your stay. Will we return then? the answer is a definite yes !

The house is very spacious, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, large living room. In the kitchen all necessary equipment is present. In the garden you find a nice swimmingpool, sunbeds and a BBQ. Within a few walking minutes from the Villa you are on the beach. We had a really good vacation in the villa. Our children loved to play in the pool, watch their DVD's on the tv, or take a look from the terrace on the roof of the villa. The Villa is situated on the Villa Verde Resort. This Resort is very large and quiet, many swimmingpools, children playgrounds, supermarket, restaurant etc. So, everything you need is nearby. Within a few driving minutes you are in Santa Maria with a beautiful beach, many nice cafe's, restaurants and shops. We would recommend this villa to everyone who is looking for a relaxing vacation.

We recently stayed in this lovely villa and had a great holiday. It was really spacious and very new with large terraces for relaxing on the comfy sun-beds. It has an enclosed garden and small pool, which the kids loved and its location is great. It's been tastefully furnished and everything you could possibly need is included. A little bit of advise, take a couple of tea towels with you, as the maids didn't supply us with any. The resort was a little quiet when we were there, as it had only just opened, but it suited us fine, as we just wanted to chill out and relax, which we certainly did. We would recommend going into the local town of Santa Maria for restaurants, many of which are located right on the beach, as the one on the resort is not as good as those in the town. Santa Maria is about 4/5 minutes by car or taxi (3 Euros). The owners send you a really handy "information pack" whch proved very useful. The resort also provides a shuttle bus that runs 4 times a day which takes you into Santa Maria, which is very convenient. We all loved Cape Verde, which is so different to European countries, we will definitely go back again and also stay at the villa again as well, a really great holiday.
