Second stay here was as amazing as the first!

5 of 5
This house is even more beautiful than the pictures suggest! This house would be perfect for sharing with 3 couples - the bedroom arrangement allows for lots of space & privacy and the living areas are all huge. The outdoor spaces - gorgeous! Unfortunately November weather doesn't invite lazing around the pool. No matter!! There is lots to do & see on Pico and Casa do Ananas is perfectly positioned for exploring. Only minutes drive from a central position on the main coastal road and also from the road that cuts across the island to Sao Roque. Less than 5 minute drive into the town of Lajes do Pico where you find a reasonably sized grocery store, several restaurants, and the Whaling Museum. An added bonus for those who enjoy good food - the house is located only minutes walk to an excellent restaurant! If you are looking for a peaceful stay in an elegant home on an amazing out-of-the-way island - Casa do Ananas is the place to stay.

Great little house in a good location to see the west of the island.

We had good communication with Catarina and she was friendly and helpful upon welcoming us to the property. The house was perfect for our four night stay with everything we needed. We particularly liked the outdoor area with barbecue at the rear of the property. It is a traditional village house which has been refurbished in a sympathetic style. There is a supermarket before you enter the road to the village which sells everything you might need. We explored the west of the island from the house seeing Sete Cidades which is amazing and we kayaked on the lagoon. It is possible to tour the whole island from here. Sao Miguel is stunningly beautiful and surpassed our expectations as we love the countryside and walking.
