The home is extremely comfortable and was perfect for our trip. Situated in Calheta, it made for easy exploration of the island and the many hikes, beaches, restaurants and views. I only wish we could have stayed longer! The grocery store is a few minutes drive away and the kitchen has everything you require so most nights we were happy to return to BBQ and sit on the lovely patio overlooking the sea. The entire home has been recently renovated to a high standard with no detail overlooked. The showers were great, modern smart tv, and what looked like a very cozy fireplace (though we didn't need it as the weather was great!) Finally, your hosts are some of the loveliest people you will meet! The communication was great, check in seamless (they were waiting for us to help with bags, show us around and make sure we were comfortable) and we also really appreciated the high chair and baby cot being setup for us on arrival which made traveling with our 8mo old even easier. Overall, a great stay. Can't wait to return!
