Guestbook comments from the manager

good and clean accommodation from Annemiek Coenen 14/Sep/2014

This accommodation was good with a beautiful view over Horta.

You need a car, Because it is on top of Horta, but that’s useful why you have a beautiful view.

Magnificent view and lots of space

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place to stay in Horta. Though, you need a car!

It's on top of the hill with a magnificent view over Horta and Pico... the sunrise over Pico is just amazing....

Could not point anything bad about this....

Fantástica vista!

  • 5 of 5

Uma fantástica vista sobre o pico com um amanhecer de cortar a respiração e um entardecer encantador.

Saliento ainda a qualidade do apartamento, capaz de nos acomodar a todos (éramos 6) com toda a comodidade e conforto. Um destaque especial para a nossa anfitriã, Zelda Melo, que foi de uma simpatia, eficácia e disponibilidade sem limites. O nosso alojamento contribuiu para umas férias inesquecíveis. Recomendo.
