Tremendous potential, great views, isolated location

  • 4 of 5

My wife called the kitchen "minimalist". It has 4 pots, with a 3-burner stovetop and no range or microwave; and, a refrigerator slightly larger than my small fridge at work. When I offered to buy a microwave if I could get reimbursed, the owner noted "I personally never use a microwave and so far nobody else has needed one, so no I do not want one in the house..". And, that the house description was accurate: microwave not advertised, range oven not advertised, refrigerator advertised. All true. THIS IS A RENTAL HOUSE WHERE PEOPLE WITH DIFFERENT HABITS THAN YOUR OWN MIGHT VISIT, NOT YOUR PERSONAL EVERYDAY HOME.

The owner lives overseas. We had to get and return the house keys from a "housekeeper" at his place of work, whereas in 3 other cases when we rented houses the hosts met us at the airport or ferry port and escorted us to the rental. The owner will claim that his place of work was on our way to the airport. Indeed, which doesn't take away from the fact that if there is to be an inconvenience, the renter will experience it. The directions to the house were advertised as "easy", which makes sense when you know the way. We found it eventually. In all 3 of the other Azorean islands we have visited we were escorted. For the readers who think we are spoiled, we agree. The owner will claim that never before has there been a problem with the directions. For a new and modern house, it was annoying that the shower drain took hours on end to drain as we showered. I had water shoes for the natural swimming areas, never thinking that me and my 2 family members would need to use the shoes during our showers to avoid standing in undrained water. I like to sip my coffee during the morning. I had to use a saucepan each time to reheat the coffee, then off to clean the saucepan - annoying. We like pastries. Each time we had to use the skillet, turning them over and over and then off to clean the skillet - annoying. We had leftover food some of the time. Each time we wanted to heat it up... - annoying. The owner agreed to a nightly charge refund after I communicated that SATA had changed our return by 1 day. She could have claimed "too bad", although she was told well before the cancellation policy date. Having binoculars on the property is nice. There are comfortable lounge chairs available for the patio area. The large trash can in the kitchen was very functional. The beds and the living room couches were the most comfortable of the 3 rentals we had this trip.

beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice holiday in Manhanha at the tip of Pico island. The new house is equipped with all that's necessary and the view from the couch/terrace is unique. Sunrise over the ocean, what else do you need for a perfect start of the day?

Sehr schönes Haus an toller Lage

  • 4 of 5

Das Ferienhaus ist wunderschön gelegen, toller Ausblick aufs Meer. Bei der Ausstattung ist alles dabei, was man braucht.

Was für uns fehlte, war ein Tisch mit Stühlen auf der Terasse, damit man beim Essen den Panoramablick auch draussen richtig geniessen kann.

Alles in allem ein modernes schönes Haus, wir kommen bestimmt wieder.

Komfortables Haus

  • 4 of 5

Der Kontakt zur Vermieterin war sehr gut. Die ganze Mietabwicklung verlief positiv. Die Schlüsselübergabe vor Ort durch einen Verwalter verlief ebenfalls sehr gut. Dieser versorgte uns noch mit weiteren Infos.

Das Haus ist neuwertig und hatte grosszügige Zimmer, welche sehr schön ausgestattet sind. Die Küche war gut ausgestattet und hat einen Geschirrspühler.

Besonders hervorheben möchten wir, dass das Haus mit einer Waschmaschine und einem Wäschetrockner ausgestattet ist.

Als negativ Punkt wäre, dass der Fernseher und das W-Lan nicht funktioniert haben.

Da das Haus am Rande, fast schon ausserhalb, des Dorfes liegt ist hier Ruhe Garantiert. Hier ist man von keinem Haus umgeben. Der Ausblick aufs Meer ist aber sicher.

Traumurlaub und 100% Weiterempfehlung

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus auf der Insel Pico hat uns sehr gefallen. Man wohnt mitten in der Natur (Vögel, Fledermäuse u. Gelbschnabelsturmtaucher kann man sehen u. hören) und hat einen grandiosen Ausblick auf das Meer von der großen Terrasse, wie auch aus dem Wohn- u. Essbereich. Das Haus ist neu und modern eingerichtet mit geräumigen Bad und großer Dusche. Die Schlüsselübergabe durch den örtlichen Verwalter war problemlos. Sehr empfehlenswert ist übrigens auch das Fischrestaurant unten im Dorf. Wir würden immer wieder gerne hier noch einmal den Urlaub verbringen und geben 100% Weiterempfehlen.
