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.

Great little house in a good location.

5 of 5
We had good communication with Andrea who was friendly and helpful when she welcomed us to the property. We hired a car for our stay on the island so the electric gate with onsite parking was a bonus. It felt very secure. The house had everything we needed with a good outdoor barbecue area at the rear. Wifi was excellent and beds were comfortable. It is well located for exploring the island and a five minute drive to the harbour of Lagoa where there are some great fish restaurants. We thoroughly recommend the seafood risotto at O Capitao's! There are natural pools to swim in near the harbour too. All in all a good choice to round off our two week holiday on the beautiful island of Sao Miguel.
