Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We live in Swansea,Wales in the UK. Paul is a carpenter and Jackie an accountant. We have two children Gemma 12 and Christopher 9.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Maria:
We committed to the property offplan back in 2008. We were originally looking to buy in Fuerteventura and hadn't even heard of Cape Verde,but the property magazines were advertising Cape Verde as an up and coming tourist destination. The Paradise Beach complex appealed to us over other developments on the island of Sal,due to the high quality and spacious design of the complex ,with all properties overlooking a pool.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We love the friendliness of the locals,their catchphrase being 'Cape Verde-no stress' We also love the year round sunshine and lack of rainfall,tranquillity of the resort,comfort and outlook of the apartment and choice of bars and restaurants in nearby Santa Maria.
