On the water

  • 4 of 5

First, thank you for everything Denise.

If you want to spend as much time as you can in the water this is the place to be. It has 2 swimming areas nearby and the main swimming area in Porto Martins (piscina do Porto Martins) is a quarter mile walk. On the way to that swimming area is an excellent walk way for strolling around, running, or riding your bike. Seriously the location of this place is amazing.

The house itself is great as well, in particular the balcony. My family and I spent a lot of time on that balcony. It was great.

The only issues were parking and the wifi. Wifi worked but it couldn't handle any heavy lifting (i.e. uploading pictures or accessing my bank websites). From what I understand they are limited on their wifi selection. As for parking, it's a tight driveway and probably best to park in the street. Despite that I would do it again and I plan on it. Thank you Denise.

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

First of all I have to say that Denise and her son Daniel are great people, from the time we got to the island to the time we left they were very accommodating. The house is located in Porto Martins one of the most beautiful locations of the island. The kitchen and master bedroom overlooks the ocean (priceless) the sound of the waves braking on the rocks bellow is something no money can buy. I you are thinking about going to the island, give Denise a call you will love it

Beautiful house, conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

Well-equipped little house with a beautiful view. Porto Martins is a nice little town, perfectly located near to the airport, Praia da Vitoria, and not much of a drive to Angra do Heroismo. The house is also within walking distance of a nice little restaurant (Buzius) and several swimming areas. There is no sidewalk though, so be very careful coming in and out of the house! The kitchen has a beautiful view, as does the bed upstairs. We spent a lot of time on the balcony too. Amazing place. All you hear are birds chirping, the sea crashing on the rocks below, church bells from the Church down the road, (and the occasional passing car). Denise and her son were very helpful through the whole booking process and stay. Would definitely consider staying here again if we're in the area :)

One thing to note about the location: it doesn't quite match the map on the listing. The house is a little further south, on a road called "M509" on the map.

My friends and I really enjoyed Denise's lovely home! Being right there by the ocean was fantastic & being so near ( within walking distance) to two swimming areas was a wonderful treat! There was definitely some relaxing in this Santa Margarida Rexaxing House! The title is right on! It's also a great location for hustle & bustle too! Of which there was some, too! Easy to get around to everywhere on this beautiful island. The balcony was the best part & sleeping with the windows open to the sound of the wind and waves is something money can't buy! I met a few friendly neighbors which is why I loved staying here much better than a hotel. Can't wait to come back again! Thanks, Denise

Couldn't get any better!

  • 5 of 5

The views from this beautiful cottage are simply breathtaking. The upstairs balcony is the highlight of the house. There are two hammocks and a couch that make the perfect place to sit and relax. Denise and her son, Daniel, were wonderful hosts. The house is nicely appointed and Denise made sure it was stocked with some basic essentials to get your holiday started. There are two bathing areas, a delicious restaurant, and a small market within walking distance. The bus stop is also nearby, but I highly recommend hiring a car to properly see all the island has to offer. I will miss the sound of the wind and surf lulling me off to sleep.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect small rental home for a couple or family. The 2nd floor bedroom opens up and looks right out on the rocks and ocean. The sound of the ocean fills the home. Kitchen and bathroom are adequate. One of the best restaurants on the island is within walking distance. Owners are very nice and accommodating.
