About the property

2 Bedroom Apartment in Porto Antigo II with Air Conditioning and Sea Views.

Relaxing by your own apartment, soaking up the sun by the infinity pool and gazing across the glistening sea into the horizon - sounds like paradise. But that's exactly what you will get here at Porto Antigo II, a boutique resort complex bursting with character and about as close to the warm sea as you can get.

This resort is ideal for both families and couples, its location in the very heart of Santa Maria is second-to-none with all bars, restaurants and shops no more than a minutes walk away. Our apartment is fitted with a fully-equipped kitchen, spacious lounge and two bedrooms. Enjoy watching the sun set from our patio and ensure the most memorable of holidays.

Porto Antigo II is quite simply the finest development on the island of Sal. Situated right on the beach in the heart of Santa Maria, it is already the most sought after destination for the discerning traveller. The complex is kept private and secure by staff who are always in attendance. It is only a 20 minute taxi ride to and from the airport (10-15 euros) near Espargos. It has a large freshwater swimming pool which is cleaned daily, new sun loungers and magnificent gardens. Our large two bedroom apartment is situated on the ground floor with stunning views of Santa Maria beach and the new pier. You can see and hear the waves rolling in from the patios off the sitting room and main bedroom.

About Stephen Haylett

My name is Stephen and I bought this apartment nearly 10 years ago when we first visited the islands. I live in UK with my wife and two children. We come to Santa Maria every year.

Stephen Haylett purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Stephen Haylett chose Santa Maria

Location. Location. Location.

On the beach and in the centre of town but still quiet and peaceful. From our bedroom patio it is a 35 metre walk to the white sandy beach. Always quiet around the pool during the day yet still only 100 metres from the town square and its restaurants and bars.

What makes this apartment unique

Nowhere on the island can you be in the centre of the town and be on the beach and still have a quiet private pool and gardens looking out to sea.

Its a very small complex of privately owned apartments. Private pool area. 24 hour staff on site.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stephen the owner was really helpful from the beginning with all my questions.. Re the area! The apartment was in lovely condition and clean, exactly as told, right on the beach and by pool. The staff around Porto Antigo where excellent, so friendly with our little boy! We will definitely be back to Porto Antigo again...we fell in love with Santa Maria And it's fun loving musical people! Such a stunning place. Which makes it perfect for couples or friends without kids. Overall an excellent stay and thank you Stephen& all the best😊

Very pleasant apartment and location!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the appartment was very pleasant. It is very well equipped. On the patio you have a view at the ocean and furthermore you see the local life passing by on the path along the side of the apartmentblock. The appartment is very close to the beach so we woke up every morning with coffee at the beach!
