This house was the perfect location for a slow-paced, relaxing, and very-much-fun holiday. The only frustrating thing was that there were no friends or family around to share it with. This house is excellent for entertaining with seating and settings for around 20 people. The outside bar-b-q area is terrific with a wonderful wood-burning grill (we did steaks, burgers, and heated a left-over pizza on the grill), oven, and "stove-top." The table on the outside patio area is brilliant--in 30 seconds it goes from cocktail table height to dinner table height; the stools around it are also of a unique and original design.

We had fires in the house almost every night (sorry if we used up too much of your fire wood Nelia and Francisco) and really enjoyed just listening to music and watching the fire. The inside of the house is cozy and comfortable, with nice sized rooms and everything you need for cooking and living.

A 15 minute walk downhill through a very pretty, charming, and at times rustic neighborhood takes you to the wonders of the natural swimming pools of Biscoitos. It was a bit cold for swimming for these Florida boys but watching the huge waves rolling in, smashing into these gigantic rocks and the overflow forming the swimming pools is in itself worth a visit to the island.

We were sorry to have to leave this wonderful house and can hardly wait to come back next year for a longer visit--nine day was nice but not enough. I seriously cannot imagine anyone staying at this lovely home and leaving with any negativity. It was a joy. Thank you for sharing your home with us Nelia and Francisco. Sean and David

New, updated home with Traditional Island charm

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place, hands down. It was well maintained and recently built, but kept the traditional charm one would expect from a home on the islands of Azores. Really enjoyed the vast property with many trees and flowers and a beautiful fig tree that continuously supplied us with fresh fruit. The property had all the basic amenities one would expect and more. The amazing covered porch and outdoor bbq area was great for our whole family to entertain even to have guests, or just enjoy a simple morning coffee under the blue sky's and listening to waves, or late night coffee under the blanket of stars. It is very close to one of the most desirable swimming spots on the island "Biscoitos - Abismo" where we enjoyed a lot of our time.

If I can offer one suggestion would be to have the internet access, however, I do not necessarily think with was all bad as it allows you to completely disconnect and truly focus on your time there.

I would highly recommend the property to anyone, the owners were great and made themselves available before, after, and during our stay for anything we needed. I would look forward to renting the property again, again.

Thank you Francsico and Nelia.

A rare pearl!

  • 5 of 5

We found a rare pearl when renting this beautiful home! Our hosts met us at the airport and guided us back to their home. The house is fully equipped, homey, and included many different amenities to make it feel like our own getaway retreat. Special Portuguese treats were waiting for us from our hostess!

A mini tour of the Biscoitos visiting the local bakery and butcher shop (which we found absolutely wonderful and so reasonable!!) followed. A drive along the ocean gave us a picture of what our next ten days of heaven would be like.

Even though the weather for the first few days was not on our side, it did not hamper our lengthy walks, hikes, and visits on the island. Our days ended with a glass of vino at the small, but , oh, so very friendly port café. It is a short ten minute walk from the house and one cannot pay for the view of the ocean, it was well worth the walk!

Would we recommend this place, totally!!

Gemütliches großes Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Die Vermieter haben uns sehr herzlich empfangen, alles ging sehr unkompliziert.

Das Ferienhaus ist sehr gut eingerichtet, mit genügend Platz und Zubehör.

Das Grundstück ist groß, genügend Platz zum Grillen, relaxen....

Das Haus ist gut erreichbar, es ist nur ein kurzer Weg zu den Badebecken.

Auch alle anderen Ziele auf der Insel sind vom Ferienhaus gut erreichen.

Vielen Dank für den schönen und gemütlichen Aufenthalt und weiterhin viel Erfolg.

Einfach Klasse!

  • 5 of 5

Ein sehr schöner Aufenthalt auf der Insel!

Nelia und Francisco waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Das Haus war in einem Top-Zustand und lag nahe zum Badebecken im Meer.

Besonderes: Wir wurden herzlich mit einer Obstplatte empfangen. Toilettenartikel waren kostenlos (Toilettenpapier, Ohrstäbchen, Seife, Seifenschaum, etc.) Auch Gewürze standen zur Verfügung. Das Haus ist liebevoll eingerichtet und bietet viel Platz. Viel Möglichkeit, die Wäsche aufzuhängen und abends gemütlich beisammen zu sitzen. Von der Waschmaschine bis zur Obstpresse alles vorhanden.

Ich bedanke mich nochmals bei Nelia und Francisco und wünsche Ihnen weiterhin viel Erfolg mit dem schönen Haus!
