About Carlos Resendes
My name is CARLOS and I am from the island of São Miguel (Azores). I studied and started working in Lisbon, but in 2000 I returned to São Miguel. I am married, I have 3 children and I live in Ponta Delgada. In 2015 I began to dedicate myself to rent holidays homes, being currently my main activity. I am the owner and manager of some properties in Ponta Delgada: 2 apartments in the center of Ponta Delgada and a house at seaside. I like to welcome my guests and to give them an excellent holiday in São Miguel. In addition to the quality and good location of my properties, I am always available (WhatsApp) for guests, with information on tour guides of the main places to visit and recommendations for restaurants. I am a rent-a-car partner, and I can book the car. I can also arrange the transfer from the airport to the property and vice versa, at any time.
Carlos Resendes purchased this Apartment in 2000

Enjoyed the property. Walking distance to most areas including the marina. Carlos picked us up at the airport and dropped off our bags in a storage area until our room was ready. He then dropped us off at the marina. Our flight landed at 730am from the US. The only thing I would suggest is reserving the apartment the day before if you are coming in from an overnight flight. We were so exhausted when we got there and had a hard time staying awake until the room was ready. But once we got into the apartment, all was well. Its a great space for families. Had 3 bedrooms and a nice living and kitchen area. There was some construction going on outside during the day across the street but that didn’t bother us since we were not around during the day. The bed is a bit hard but when you are tired, it doesn’t matter. Also, it can get pretty hot and humid even with fans going but the breeze did help some while we were there. Great pastry place walking distance and grocery store is close by. The location was perfect.
Amazing Apartment in Ponta Delgada
This place was Amazing!!
Carlos Picked is up at the airport and had a few local snacks waiting for us when we arrived. He gave us lots of information on the best sites to see! We loved our stay and can’t wait to come Back!!!
Very nice apartment!
We had a great stay at this apartment. Carlos was very helpful before and during our stay. He gave us great recommendations for things to do around the island that were very helpful. We have 2 young children and we felt very comfortable with them in the apartment.
This place was the best. Owner was very friendly and helpful, the place was in a great location walking distance to everything. We would definitely stay here again if and when we come back to Ponta Delgada.
We enjoyed our trip very much.
The apartment was very nice, convienent to everything. Megasabor, sol mar and walking distance to the avenida. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who is planning to go to Sao Miguel. Thank you Carlos Resendes.
Thanks for the review.
Glad you and your family have enjoyed the stay.
See you next time.
This apt makes São Miguel even better!
My husband and I stayed at this fantastic apartment for 3 nights (September 28 through October 1 in 2016) and we would not hesitate to book it again! We cannot thank the owner, Carlos, enough! This review is a little long, but I want to make sure I am being thorough and helpful.
We know a 3 bedroom & 2 bathroom apt is a lot of space for 2 people, but, from my searching, this rental seemed to be a way better deal than some of the hotels and other rentals in the area. (I hope this doesn't mean Carlos will raise his price, but he has every right to!) Plus, it was great that my husband and I could each have one full bathroom to use =0)
Carlos was extremely easy to deal with, easy to contact with very fast responses, helped with booking a rental car, and sent a great list of recommendations. We super appreciated him driving us to/from the airport. He was very hospitable, showed us through the apartment, and even placed some local products for us to try in the kitchen (I'm a huge fan of São Jorge cheese!). The in-apt washer was very convenient for us especially since we only had an 8kg allowance for our luggage!
The apartment's location is very convenient as it is quiet (so we never felt disturbed) yet still walkable to food options, supermarkets, and the downtown marina area (~10 min walking). We never had issues finding a parking spot near the apartment.
Below are some places near the apt we enjoyed:
*Sol Mar supermaket - off R. de São Gonçalo & near roundabout - we always drove here, but it's only an 8 min walk from the apartment. Prices are very reasonable, very huge supermarket with almost everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed stocking up on some food items here and bought some gifts to bring back home.
*Megasabor - a bakery practically next door to the apartment
*Taberna Açor (15 min walk from apt)- great petiscos (tapas)!
*Nut' (15 min walk from apt)- interesting gelato concept place
Below are some places on the island we really enjoyed:
*Bar Caloura - great fish and great view while dining
*Poça da Dona Beija - for bathing in hot springs
*Miradouro de Santa Iria - heard this is great to watch sunset, but our view was blocked by fog
*Miradouro Lagoa do Canário
*Ferraria - though, the water was not as warm as I've read on the internet
Huge thank you, Carlos, for helping make our first experience on São Miguel great! We hope to return to the island and we highly recommend your apartment!
Many thanks for this great review.
