Photos and Description of this Santa Maria holiday apartment

Great studio in the perfect private resort Porto Antigo 2 in joyful Santa Maria

This is a studio apartment in the private resort of Porto Antigo 2, right on the beach in Santa Maria. The studio has a small balcony overlooking the tropical gardens, with fresh-water pool with direct path to a heavenly beach; there are no roads to cross and no traffic to spoil the view. Behind the resort is the town of Santa Maria with its shops, bars and restaurants. The studio comprises a living/sleeping room with balcony and kitchenette; and a shower-room with toilet and bidet.

Please note that all the photos in this listing are taken from the apartment itself or from the resort pool and beach (i.e. all within a minute of the apartment) (except for a few that are labelled as such); they are therefore genuine photos not just generic photos as shown in some listings.

About Anna Markey

I completely fell in love with Santa Maria on my my first visit, and went back a second time a month later! On the second visit I stayed at Porto Antigo 2, and I decided if ever an apartment became available I would buy it. A couple of years later I got my wish: the perfect small studio in the perfect location.

The photo of me is in the local Creole restaurant in town ... the first place I had a beer and a meal in Santa Maria on day one of my first visit ... and still a favourite haunt of mine!

Why Anna Markey chose Sal

This is a small but ''perfectly formed'' property with everything you need for a holiday in this location. Even when inside you have the lovely view of the gardens and privacy due to the tropical trees and plants in front of your balcony. A glimpse of the blue pool, and the beach is just beyond the pool.

What makes this apartment unique

Unlike some apartments where the security guards pass your door every few minutes, this property on the first floor has no-one passing in front of your window - yet you still have the security. You have brilliant tropical plants in front of the balcony, and a partial pool view. You can leave stuff on the balcony as it's very safe. I think it's the best part of the complex, within the best complex!

Lovely studio apartment overlooking beautiful tropical gardens and the pool

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect and was right on the beach. It was clean, well maintained and had everything we needed. We had breakfast on the balcony in the morning sun. The pool was perfect in a relaxing tranquil area. Being right on the beach meant that we could pop back for anything we needed. The shops were a minute away so we could get everything we needed. There was a good choice of restaurants nearby from great local low cost ones, such as Angela's on the beach which had lovely local cuisine, to more expensive ones. We met Anna the owner who was lovely and friendly and we had dinner with her at Le Prive, great French cuisine, and she gave us lots of tips and advice to make our stay great; which it was! She also had booklets in the apartment with lots of information on the island which was very helpful. We would highly recommend Anna's apartment! We are definitely going back!

The resort is on the beach, so there are no roads to cross to enjoy a morning swim or stroll along the amazing sands towards the pier. Behind the resort is the town of Santa Maria with all its shops, bars and restaurants, so it couldn't be better located.
