We stayed at the villa for 10 nights. The accommodations were very comfortable, and the kitchen was well appointed enough to cook every other meal in. The pool was gorgeous, and we rarely had to share it because other guests were often away from the property. The view was breathtaking and ever changing from sunset to sunrise (a photographer's dream). We managed snorkeling at the ocean crater of Ilheu, a fishing charted from Ponta Delgada, and many island drives to all the Vistas. While an updated GPS and your own car are a must, it's easy enough to get around once you've learned the highway, but the drives within small towns leave almost no room for error...very tight but doable if careful. A nice bonus was being able to visit the pineapple greenhouses attached to the property...we loved learning the history and bought and enjoyed two of the island beauties! Finally, while the ocean pool was gorgeous, it might not be the best choice for swims, depending on your tolerance for chilly water, and if you have children who might be a bit to adventurous with the "out of bound" rocks. All in all, Miguel was a wonderful host and we would recommend this place to anyone who wants a true home in the Azores!
