Wonderful views and sounds of waves

4 of 5
Our family of 4 stayed here for 7 nights in June. We were all very happy, comfortable and relaxed staying at Sea Bay House and were all really pleased with our choice. We felt very much as though we were living with the locals. The views from the panoramic windows running along the house were wonderful and we sat outside enjoying breakfast every morning listening to the sounds of the waves and watching people snorkelling. In the evenings, we often choose to eat in, as the kitchen was supplied with everything you could need- a great supermarket 3 mins drive- and we enjoyed the views and watching the birds and the lights of the beautiful church. There was loads of storage space in both bedrooms. The little store 2 doors down was so friendly and we had our 8 rolls waiting for us every morning. Miss being there already. Sandra, who is Diogo's friend who welcomed us into the property, was so lovely and made sure we had everything we needed. A great week in Sao Miguel.
