Welcome to my newly painted and decorated 2 bedroom apartment located in the stunning beach front development of Porto Antigo 1, Santa Maria, the islands most sort after development.

The apartment consists of 2 bedrooms, one twin bedroom and one mezzanine style double bedroom as well as a double sofa bed in the living area. There is a shower room and kitchenette as well as a nice large balcony.

The apartment is furnished to high standard with a fan in each bedroom, a mosquito screen on the window in the downstairs bedroom and air-conditioning in the living area. The apartment is bright and colourful creating a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere during your stay. There are double doors leading from the living area to the balcony which when opened provide a lovely cool breeze throughout the building.


Porto Antigo 1 is a quiet and relaxed development on the edge of Santa Maria town opposite a large open square. The apartment is just a few seconds walk from the pool which overlooks a small secluded beach enclosed by the old port walls. This makes it ideal for children to swim and play in safety. The beach is also totally private and therefore can be rather quiet as it's only used by people staying in Porto Antigo 1. There are 2 restaurants onsite, one at the entrance to the development the other on the waters edge, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner it is the ideal place to grab a refreshing drink or bite to eat after a long day sunbathing.

Porto Antigo 1 is situated on the edge of the town and is less than 5 minutes walk to the town square in the heart of Santa Maria with its wide range of shops, bars and restaurants. Some developments situated in the centre of Santa Maria town can suffer from noise pollution from near by bars, this is not the case with Porto Antigo 1.

You are only 3 minutes walk from the excellent Tam Tams bar/restaurant with 5 stars on trip advisor and very popular with the local expats.

You are 2 minutes to the local bakery which is wonderful for fresh bread in the morning.

Just opposite the main entrance is a small local shop selling all your daily essential plus wireless internet credit.




Some people have been advised that they need to get a visa in advance, this is not the case. As your holiday will be classed as 'flight only', not a 'package holiday' it is advised that you get a visa at the airport on arrival. This is very simple process that we have been through many times. It is actually better than having a prearranged visa as you get to bypass the long immigration que.

This is the case for most european countries however some countries can be different to others so it is best to check.


Airport transfers can be arranged upon request to and from the airport. We have a reliable, trusted, very friendly and helpful driver who we always use. He can speak excellent English, Portuguese and a little German. He will meet you with the key, show you around the apartment, answer any questions you have regarding things to do and places to see, he will also be the contact on island in case of an emergency.


Bedding and bathroom towels included at 'check in'.

Please note the only cleaning and laundry included is at the end of your stay upon 'check out'.

If you require any extra cleaning, new towels or bedding 'during your stay' then this can be provided for an extra charge.


We are willing to be flexible on 'Check out' time so long as there are no other guests arriving that day.

If there are new incoming guests the check out time will be 10.00am. Depending on guests arrival time I may be able to make it later.


Smoking is allowed on the balcony only.

"Fantastic well equipped apartment in a beautiful location!"

Porto Antigo is a beautiful apartment complex, close to everywhere in town. This apartment was like home from home, so well equipped. The owners looked after us arranging airport transfers with the lovely Ido. They also text to make sure we were happy and having a great time. I would definitely recommend this apartment if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Santa Maria, Sal, Cape Verde!

"Great apartment, great location, great people - thanks Becky and Ildo."

Apartment was great, location was too, real close to everything we needed - from the tourist and locals bars, music and plenty of good restaurants to the local bakery or beach/quay to buy freshly caught tuna or go out fishing with the local boys catching 200 lb marlin on handlines!! Becky was really helpful and so was Ildo. Thank you both for all your help and kindness. Look forward to meeting up again in the future. Ian and Nick

"No Stress! Fantastic location & great place"

We wanted some winter sun & Sal was perfect for this, the apartment is only a minute from the pool & private beach area and a few minutes from the massive sandy beach you'll see in all the adverts etc. The place itself was really nice, we loved the mezzanine style for the main bedroom & the general comfy & welcoming feel. Its got everything you need, big fridge, freezer, fully equipped kitchen (tho we didn't really cook, we mostly wandered along the beach & ate in the local restaurants). The locals are all really friendly, and there's very much a 'holiday' atmosphere, plenty of bars etc if you're fancying a night out but the apartment is set a few streets back from the livelier part of town so its lovely and quiet. We wandered around Santa Maria and felt that the apartment was definitely in the nicer end (tho its all pretty nice), the little pair etc is all very picturesque. Ultimately the the location is the key, the beach is by far the best one I've been to and the sea is beautiful and warm all year round. There's loads of water-sports and tours etc on offer if you're feeling more energetic. high;y recommend.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. I'm so pleased you had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed staying in our apartment. All the best Becky
