General description

  • Secondary home
New apartment, one bedroom, one bathroom at the centre of town, 5 minutes away from paradisiac beaches, 5 minutes away from grocery store. Perfect for a couple or a solo-traveler. Don't mind the mess, I just had a busy day ;) I will obviously leave it spotless for whoever wishes to spend in this little paradise their Christmas holiday.
Sal is well known for its excellent conditions for kitesurfing and surfing, specially in the months of winter. We have got sunny and hot temperatures all year round. I know this sounds like a dream and you might be wondering why I am leaving, I am originally from Spain and off to spend the Holidays with my family, however, I have some plants that I grow hydroponically, which need to be taken care of. I will explain every detail to my future house-sitters, it is actually very simple! I do not wish to occupy any houses as an exchange, since I am going back home, but I do ask for 150€ to help me pay rent, water and electricity these three weeks that I will be away. I will leave room for clothes, toiletries, and the house is set up with everything you need.

Needs and Animals

  • My plants
  • Vegetable patch
I only need from my house sitter to keep an eye on my plants, technically it will all be automatized, however the tank will need a refill half way through with water and nutrients. It is important in hydroponic cultivation to keep an eye on the plants daily to make sure there arent any problems, in any case, I am one phone call away to solve any doubts!

The apartment is at the end of the town and therefore gets a lovely breeze running through all-day. It is clean, new and has excellent views to the town from the balcony, and to the sea from the bedroom. Life in Sal island is dreamy. The apartment is sufficiently far away from the main street to not hear the music of the night-life. Therefore perfect if you are looking for a relaxing holiday at the beach, snorkeling, visiting its many turistic attractions etc. If on the other hand you want to come for the kite and surf, you also have night life 7 days a week a 10 minute walk away from the apartment.
From the pictures you may see a big yellow building, that is the municipal house, there is a market, and a place to fill up the water jugs with drinkeable water (even if water from the tap is potable, we recommend not drinking it). As you can see, located right in the perfect spot.

  • One room of which one bedroom
  • Contemporary

There is not much more to say about this beautiful island except that it must be visited ASAP. It is also very used to tourists, so Christmas and New Years event will take place everywhere in town.

firm dates

I have not bought my tickets yet, waiting for a house-sitter to confirm, however I cannot negotiate the dates. I would like for the house-sitters to come a day before for me to explain everything that needs explanation.
