House with character in a beautiful location

4 of 5
The house is very clean, well equipped and has lots of character. Marta and Nuno went out of their way to add personal touches such as a welcome basket of food and Christmas decorations. It was great to be able to sit out on the terrace and enjoy the fantastic sea views. The location of the house is very convenient for touring the island especially since it has easy access to the fast road linking Ponta Delgada and Nordeste.

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.
