About Owner/Property Managers

I am a teacher who works part time, and have been dreaming about remodeling my house for many years. I live in California and can only come to the Azores for a month or so each year. I´d like others to enjoy it just as I do. It is safe and secure, and the community is friendly. It is a very safe place, but probably not for people with mobility issues as Manadas, Sao Jorge is a hilly area.

Owner/Property Managers purchased this cottage in 1991

Why Owner/Property Managers chose Azores

The property is absolutely beautiful as a simple rustic stone cottage, and has all that you need.(A Pin can be purchased if you need Internet service, or some restaurants have this too.) The views are spectacular, and it is completely private. Only I have lived here as the owner until now, so I have made it homey and my own. It has a parking area next to the house for your convenience. Also there is a private outdoor patio with views of the sea too.

What makes this cottage unique

It is located on a quaint cobblestone path going up a hillside called Caminho de Igreja. It is a 3- 5 minute walk up a hill,with breathtaking views of the sea. At night, the sunsets are sometimes a complete wonder. You won´t be disappointed.

Cottage with a View

  • 4 of 5

My new bride and I had a wonderful experience in MaryAnne's beautiful cottage. It has a beautiful view of the ocean and Pico from the bedroom. It is a short drive away from many of the best parts of Sao Jorge. The cottage has all the necessary modern amenities including a wash machine.

A perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the stone cottage in Manadas was one of the most wonderful experience of my life. If there is a paradise on earth, that location is it. The cottage feels cozy and has beautifully but comfortable furnishings. Everything is there to make your stay feel like a home away from home. I highly recommend this cottage for anyone who wants to get away from it all. I'm going back, and staying longer.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent our honeymoon at Mary Ann´s house on Sao Jorge, and couldn´t have made a better choice. We loved that cute little cottage, it was very clean, quite and romantic. It was our third trip to the Azores, we love the islands, the very nice and relaxed azorean people and the feeling to be right in the middle of the Atlantic. We had never been at Sao Jorge though, and we enjoyed this island very much with its beautiful landscape. But we also could spend the whole day just sitting outside of Mary Ann´s house, drinking a coffee or a glas of wine, just relaxing and watching the environment. The view is outstanding - even if we didn´t see the Pico all the time - just looking over the ocean was like being at a SPA. One day we even saw dolphins out of the window by looking through binoculars.

Mary Ann, Teresa and Manuel made sure that we had everything we needed and that we felt like home. They are very nice people and really took care of everything.

Highly recommended!

Comfortable and cozy cottage with great views

  • 5 of 5

Although all the islands of the Azores have their special charm, we enjoyed Sao Jorge most of all, also because of Mary Ann's house. Her cousin Manuel and his wife Teresa did everything to make our stay as comfortable as can be.

Although the house is not big, it has everything you need, including a large and comfortable bathroom. Although there is a small secluded terrace behind the house, we especially liked to sit on the garden bench in front of the house. It is a great place to drink a coffee in the morning or a beer in the evening, just sitting and watching the ever changing see, the sunset and the clouds around Pico mountain, meanwhile listening to the sounds of Cory's Sheerwater.

The house is also a good place for hikers, because it is conveniently located in the middle of the island and on the south cost, close to the best walking trails and the most beautiful Fajas. And after a good day of hiking, you can have a swim in the ocean at a short walking distance, at the small harbor of Manadas.

O lugar mais bonito de São Jorge.

  • 4 of 5

Local excelente, muito rústico, numa zona lindíssima perto do mar e com uma vista privilegiada para o Pico. A casa dispõe tudo o que é necessário e a Mary Ann e o Manuel são super acessíveis e sempre pronto a ajudarem.

Un petit coin de paradis / A little paradise

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été ravis de cette maison. Tout en haut d'une petite montée, nous avons vue sur la mer et une très grand tranquilité. A 5 minutes à pied nous sommes dans le port de Manadas où l'on peut se baigner et à 10 minutes en voiture même pas, nous sommes à Urzulina où l'on trouve tout ce dont nous avons besoin : restaurants, wifi, épicirie. La maison est toute mignone et adaptée pour 1 couple avec max un enfant. Nous avons été très bien reçus par Manuel qui nous a bien aidé au niveau de la voiture. La maison été impécable et c'est agréable de disposer à notre arrivée déjà de l'eau, de fruits et de petites sucreries locales.

Wonderful place to stay if you are searching for a calm and beautifull house in the nature, which is the highest interest of São Jorge Island!

we have coves more than beaches-less than 5 min.
Car: necessary

This is for nature lovers who enjoy walking, sunsets, quiet time, hiking. There are some beautiful coves and lagoons to discover on this small, less touristy island than most. It is safe and you can easily island hope with the local boat transit nearby. There are several painters who live in this during the summer months. It's natural beauty is a rare find.
