Snagging on an easy Sunday morning - The soon to be Dunas Beach Club .....................

She who must be obeyed remarked to me yesterday that you know when you’re getting old because you're up early not to watch the MOTD repeat but to listen to Radio 2's  Steve Wright Sunday love songs followed by Michael Ball’s brunch show  topped off by Elaine Page! Even more frightening is when you realize that you know a lot more of the words to Chris De Burgh’s “Lady in Red“ than you care to admit!

And speaking of scary; is the Colonel in Libya dressed by Jamiroque?! Where does he get those hats?!

Anyway, we've attached some current photos of The Resort Groups's Dunas Beach Club Resort on Sal Island in Cape Verde. The snagging window, which is Snagging Overseas talk for the period when you can get your overseas property inspected for possible defects -  is set for July 2011. The photo above is of the Dunas Beach Club Boulevard.

If you have not already sorted Snagging Overseas to snag your Dunas Beach Club property then hurry and make sure you get your booking forms. For information on inspecting your Resort Group apartment or villa in Sal, Cape Verde, contact us by email or by telephone on +44 (0) 208 1448 200

Below is a photo of the front line villas looking directly over that beautiful beach - its the location that hollywood stars expect when they pack their bathers!

And speaking of Hollywood I've been leading the celebrations today with the success of our boy over the pond. New Oscar winner Mr Christian Bale - snagger to the stars - born in Wales and raised in Portugal he's like one of our very own! Congrats to him and all the other British Stars - a truly great night. And a rather subdued office - must get one of the Colonel's hats and hide in the back!

For all your snagging inspections make sure you book with the world's nunber one snagging company and check out the website for more photos of Dunas and other Sal developments.

Keep on Keepin on and have a snag free week.

INSURANCE for Cape Verde!

Intasure - insurance that speaks your language

Such has been the number of requests to our staff in Portugal and in Cape Verde for insurance company recommendations that we thought it best to post some information on here for you all.

The company that we have worked with for some time is Intasure. Some people have been told by their lawyers or by other insurance companies or by Tecnicil themselves that they have to use a Cape Verdean company and we can assure you that this is totally FALSE! Maybe they do it to protect their own market which is fine but we always recommend the best on the market and after speaking to IMPAR on Sal we have come to the conclusion that you are all far better of with the Intasure option.

How to get the insurance? Simple, just follow the link anove or below and speak to them direct. They really will take care of you.

From a Village in Palmela Portugal to Houses In Paradise in Brasil - Snagging Holds no Boundries

Oh indeed Snagging Overseas, the world's fastest growing property inspection company haa returned to the Portugal version of Legoland! That coloured village in the very nearly complete Palmela Village Golf Resort.

The developer of Palmela Village, Pelicano, continue to prove that it only needs a couple of weeks to finish a build ( or even start it! ) and for all of you folks completing in Blocks M270 we'll be back on site in a few weeks so book now for your snagging  inspection. Remember Snagging Overseas has been snagging properties on Palmela Village since 2005! We love the Village - even No 6 from the prisoner has a property on site. Snagging Overseas favourite architect and part time video aficionado (!!!)  Mr Tom├ís Taveira ( he's been in his 70's for over 20 years now! ) has moved on from the " Trumpton " sports arena where the Lions of Lisbon strut and snag their paws and has been commissioned to design the Sao Paulo football stadium in Brasil for the 2014 world cup final - expect the look to be louder than 40,000 vuvuzelas!

While we're on the subject of Brazil. Snagging Overseas is pleased to announce that we will shortly resume snagging inspections with our Portuguese speaking snagging brothers and sisters in the northern Natal area of the home of football. For those of you with " Houses in Paradise " or property anywhre in the Brazlian area of Natal please contact info@snaggingoverseas.com and get the expert touch from the people in the know. Remember we can snag your property in Brazil, prepare a snaggin report in Portuguese and present it to your lawyer and developer for rectification. We will then spend a few weeks while they get the items rectified and then we will go back for a second inspection.

 We don't just do snagging..................Coming to a theatre near you soon!"Snagging Overseas - The Movie." In 3D.

Vila Verde - January 2011

Raphis - January 2011

Raphis - January 2011

Raphis – is that a Cabo Verdean R2D2 in the photo? Or a huge flagon of Estrela!

Melaleuca - January 2011

Melaleuca - January 2011

Melaleuca - January 2011

Melaleuca Community, Vila Verde Santa Maria – Under the well known Sal health and safety regulations it’s not a hard hat you need – its thick grey toweling socks which I am pleased to report were being worn - Viewable and pungent. We have heard tha Tecnicil is about to release the last community in Phase Two of this finally coming together Cape Verdean development for inspections. And some of the apartments are nearly finished – At Snagging Overseas we are now taking bookings for property inspections on this and any other property in Cape Verde.  

Playground - January 2011

Kiddie’s playground – or the Santa Maria version of Stonehenge. As we know Tecnicil began work on Vila Verde a tad before the historic UNESCO site in Wiltshire and local Archaeologists believe there is a direct link to the Sporting Lisbon Football stadium - clearly Mr Taveiras has been let loose again judging by the colour scheme!

Aloe - July 2009

Aloe - January 2011

Canna - July 2009

Canna - January 2011

Aloe / Canna – These are taken from the same spot 18 months apart. Some difference. So it can be done - To quote our favorite waiter from Barcelona “eeevennttttually”. Just imagine what the whole resort will look like in another 18 months!

Wembley Way - January 2011

Lantana / Cactus – is this the wembley way? (Although unlike the original Wembley way I don’t think this has been built by German POW’s in 1948!) 

Tennis Court - January 2011

Tennis court – reminds me of the courts I “graced “as a young lad in Wales – who needs nets! Let’s hope it’s finished before our Andy wins a slam!

Clubhouse - January 2011

Clubhouse – no official opening date as yet, however the Richard Bingham Bridge Club seemed to be in full swing during lunch.

Supermarket Interior - January 2011

Supermarket Exterior - January 2011

Supermarket – more “sparse ‘da’s “ than Spa at the moment and lets hope common sense prevails and the corner shop owner has a more competitive spam and hotdog selection than Santa Maria!   

So Vila Verde Resort at Santa Maria, as Jorge Benchimol told me once it is supposed to be called, is actually in danger of being finished. If you need snagging on the resort then please contact us on info@snaggingoverseas.com You can get information on other developments we have snagged on Sal Island on our main website. for the record we have snagged apartments in every comunity in Vila Verde.

We are also snagging apartments in the Resort Group's resort of Dunas. So why choose anyone else?

Snagging Overseas in Cape Verde now since 2008.
