House has a very private and secure location with in-yard parking space. Apartment has a wonderful balcony (famous sun-room) which opens to the garden and we really enjoyed having our breakfasts there. Kitchen is very well equipped, bathroom is spacious and comfortable, bed linen and towels are excellent quality, mattress is very comfortable. Apartment is very clean with fresh flowers in vases. There is also a moisture collector machine which in September was really very useful. The only shortage I can think of was that kitchen had a very little natural light. Muito obrigado Antonio!

So you will not be disappointed by coming here. The house has all the amenities, spacious rooms, a large wooded garden well maintained. A very good situation that allows hiking, swimming and rest. A very very nice place.

For you English people, the house of the friendly and helpful Herminio was a " Grand Designs "- dream home with vast high tech ( see out but not in ) glass frontage offering panoramic views of the ocean - nothing between you and the sea. Perfect serenity for you writers, artists or simply those needing total relaxation ! The house, on 3 stories boasts spotless facilities ( ladies and perhaps gents, you may need to take a hair dryer - although there may have been one added since our holiday in May ! ) and the upper terrace with barbecue is perfect . A car is needed if you wish to venture further to visit the quaint coastal villages dotted around this picturesque island and the more ' holiday typical resort features' of the capital ' Ponta Delgada.' Herminio will inform you of the superb local restaurants . We hope to return to this idyllic holiday home soon and often! Lucia and Steve, Newcastle upon Tyne, England.
