“Great stay”
Reviewed January 14, 2018 for a stay in November 2017

We were met at the apartment by Lizy who was so informative she told us everything we needed to know about the apartment, the complex and Santa maria. The apartment is spacious, modern and comfortable. We spent our days by the pool and had lunch at the pool bar, it was reasonably priced and really good. Santa Maria is about 20 mins walk away or there is the free shuttle bus, this does get busy so get there early, taxis are around too and not expensive. Will definitely stay again!

We booked for 5 weeks in Jan/Feb. Firstly the owner Jeanette was extremely helpful, answering any questions quickly. She arranged our pick up from the airport, about 15 minute journey and the lovely helpful manager Lizzi met us and explained everything about the apartment and location. The apt is spacious and modern with lovely furniture. It s very clean and bright with lots of storage and everything you need is in there. The balcony is also large with a table and 4 chairs and space for the clothes dryer. It has sun all afternoon. The pool/garden/bar is very clean and well maintained with plenty of sunbeds, it's quiet there which suited us but if you like it more noisy walk over to the Cactus pool/bar (about 30 seconds). There's a mini supermarket, restaurants and bars on the site. There's a free minibus into Santa Maria frequently through the day, easily available taxis for 3euro but we often preferred the 20 minute stroll. There are several beaches with lots of water sports but Santa Maria beach is the most beautiful with many bars and restaurants to suit every pocket. It was hot and sunny, the local people were friendly and fun. We enjoyed it so much that we wanted to book the same period next year but it had already been booked, so we re now looking in the same area. Definitely recommend Jeanette and this apartment.

“Modern, comfortable, clean and well equipped apartment”

Extremely well equipped ground floor apartment in the Canna area of the complex. We spent an extremely comfortable and restful 14 nights in this very pleasant apartment. On arrival it was spotlessly clean and there was everything that was needed for a pleasant stay. Everything " worked" and the China, glass and cooking utensils were of high quality and in great condition. Trevor, the manager, was always on hand if help was needed and he was a mine of useful, local information. The terraces were large and comfortable and only a few yards from the immaculately clean swimming pool and loungers. For most of the time there was only ourselves and four other owners/ guests around this pool. The area was always quiet and well maintained. A taxi into Santa Maria was €3 during the day and €4 at night, Taxis were plentiful and could be ordered from Recetion. It was a few minutes, easy , walk to the beach. The whole of Vila Verde was quiet, that suited us admirably ! I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this apartment. Canna A no: 003
