About Zelda Melo

As the property manager, I have proudly represented Olimpio Apartment Since 2011.

Why Zelda Melo chose Azores

This Olimpio Apartment because it has absolutely everything travelers want: Central location, comfortable modern interior and a view to die for!

What makes this apartment unique

Unique are the patios of Olimpio Apartment, the living room patio overlooks the Marina of Horta and the Bedroom patio overlooks the Matrix Church and the commercial district.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Erg prettig appartement met een fraai terras. Alles zeer netjes en verzorgd. Locatie gunstig en eigen vervoer niet noodzakelijk.

Er zitten een aantal walvis/ dolfijnen spotters op loopafstand evenals een aantal restaurantjes. Prijzen zijn zeer redelijk.

Zelda is zeer vriendelijk en hulpvaardig. Al met al een aanrader!

Walvis spotten is "een must".

Zelda, nogmaals bedankt voor de goede zorgen en enthousiaste mails!

Excellent Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Zelda's apartment. It had everything you could ask for, including use of a washer and dryer, much appreciated mid-way through our two week tour of the Azores. The location is beautiful with an amazing view of Pico Island. Our favourite ritual was coffee on the deck each morning enjoying the vista. The stay was made even better by Zelda's greeting upon our arrival, her recommendations and suggestions. She was also a great help prior to our leaving home, with prompt responses to any questions we had. We could not have enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, super clean apartment any more. Thank you, Zelda!

Great apartment in Horta with view of Pico!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our apartment in Horta. The apartment was very clean, spacious, decorated comfortably with all that you could want and in a great location. Easy to walk to the marina and plenty of fine dining nearby. Zelda helped us with an introduction of what and where to go as soon as we got there. She had a beautiful bottle of wine and local cheese waiting for us. Thank You! Go see the calderio for a natural surreal landscape if it is a clear day, which we luckily had . She also organized a taxi pick-up and drop-off to the airport. The best thing was the view of Pico from our front deck. - we were mesmerized by the mountain peak.

We will definitely go back. And recommend a stay in this apartment to friends or family.

Thank You Zelda.

Slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment in the beautiful city of Horta. Great location to be able to walk all around the city, as well as use a rental car to get around the island. Zelda was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed when we arrived. We didn't want to leave. Thank you for sharing your wonderful place.

Great property, location, and host

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation in Horta was everything we hoped for. The apartment was spotless, well furnished, had a comfortable bed and the location is ideal. The apartment manager, Zelda, was readily available when we had questions or needs. We spent two weeks just walking in and around Horta and then rented a car for our third week so we could explore the island. We found wonderful restaurants (some were Zelda's recommendations) and interesting shops. It was the off season and perfect by our way of thinking. I was easy to get a table for dinner and we did not have to fight the crowds. The weather is dictated by the sea and most days were perfect for hiking with a light jacket, and that led to good sleeping temperatures with the windows cracked open. We highly recommend this property, and it is one of the nicer places we have vacationed (we have been lucky enough to enjoy the opportunity to vacation in many countries around the world).

Owner's Response: Thank you to a an experienced well -travelled and delightful couple who visited us in January 2016. We agree that during our off-season months (November to April) our weather can be volatile therefore its important to be close to all the restaurants, cafe, and museums. Our apartment is always prepared to receive travellers all-year-round in our climate control environment, only the best for our guests. We are happy that you were comfortable and appreciated our service. And we wish you future adventures on your next travel adventure. Zelda & Olimpio LDA staff

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't ask for a more perfect location in Horta. The apartment is located right on the main road along the water, within easy walking distance to the ferry terminal, the whale watching boats, Porto Pim beach and numerous restaurants and other attractions. And it has one of the best views of Pico on the whole island. We enjoyed several nights sitting on the large balcony enjoying the view and the weather. The apartment is also very modern and clean, with all of the amenities you'll need for a stay. Zelda was also extremely helpful in arranging transportation and tours, and answering other questions before and during our stay. Highly recommended!
