Beautiful View and Pool!

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay at this villa. Let’s start with the view; it is incredible! It overlooks Ilheu da Vila, with Vila Franca do Campo to the right. The pool has a beautiful blue tile with an infinity edge. Frankly, I could have just lounged around by the pool for a week and called it a successful vacation. But, do go out and see the island, as it is very beautiful.

You should know that the listing’s description for the number of bedrooms and bathrooms is incorrect. Rather than “zero” bathrooms, it has at least three full bathrooms. I believe it has four bedrooms, rather than five, but I may be misremembering that as there were only two of us (and we only needed one).

The interior of the house is well appointed, with nice décor and nice surfaces/finishes. A previous reviewer complained about a lack of pantry items (e.g., spices, paper towels, etc.), but I did not find it to be different from other villas I’ve rented in Europe. Those items are typically not provided.

Roberto was easy to work with and very accommodating. When you consider the location, view, pool and number of bedrooms and bathrooms, this villa is a great value. If I come back to Sao Miguel, I would most certainly rent this house again.

Beautiful Ocean View

  • 3 of 5

I would like to start by saying that Sao Miguel is breathtakingly beautiful and the ocean view from the house was no exception. The pool was a welcome spot after a hot day of sightseeing. We arrived a bit early and had to wait a few minutes for the house to be prepared for our stay. Roberto was very attentive and quickly dealt with issues that would arise. He gave us a quick tour of the house and explained how to use the appliances etc. What struck me first was that the house is in need of some TLC. The exit to the pool screens needed to be repaired or replaced and some of the furniture both inside and out should be replaced. The hot weather meant that we had to leave the doors open and had issues with flying insects etc. We also had a difficult time locking the doors and often would leave them unlocked. I've rented many properties over the years and understand that there are different expectations when it comes to kitchen supplies, but was surprised to find that there was nothing in terms of staples available, we had to go to the local market to purchase salt, sugar, paper towels and napkins etc. Also wasn't happy with the level of clean in the bathrooms, the corners of the tub/shower stalls were dark with mildew and the edges of the faucets were also dark. The most disappointing was the "grill", I was surprised that there wasn't a propane grill, only a rough stone bbq with a rusted grill that hadn't been cleaned. Limiting all our meals to be prepared on the stove. The stove took some getting used to, as it was convection and wouldn't work unless a certain type of pot was used, so my little expresso maker couldn't be used on it. All the other appliances were great and very clean. The house was large and generally comfortable with wifi etc. We liked to walk from the house into Villa Franca and it was only a few minute walk to a lovely dark sand beach. Grocery shopping was also a short 5 minute drive away. The house and it's location was perfect for adults, I would not recommend this house if you have small children. There is a major drop from the edge of the property beyond the pool with no fence or any safety. When walking into town there are spots with no sidewalks making it dangerous for children. Although we had some issues, we enjoyed our stay and I would have rated the property higher if the screens weren't is such bad shape. I would spend each morning at the edge of the property overlooking the ocean and fishing port below. Loved it!

Excellent holiday

  • 4 of 5

This villa is fantastic, seven of us got back today, we had a amazing time. The jacuzzi in the master room is amazing, more so with a glass of wine watching the sun set. Everything you need is here.

The only thing that we didn't appreciate was the constant visits from the owner and them entering the villa when we was all out, however, I do understand why he does this as the property is so amazing, he doesn't want it ruined.

Fantastic villa would recommend to anyone.

I haven't enough words to...

  • 5 of 5

I haven't enough words to express the excitement of the palce we had at arrival. Everything was perfect! Roberto came to pick us up from airport, although we were mistaken about the time, but he tried to locate us anyway. He was so polite, helpful, gentle, nice, I have no word of cricism. The house met our wildest dreams, and the island is just a paradise. One complemented the other. Beides, the ananas he grows are devine. I am already fantasizing in the next holiday there.

Es war traumhaft

  • 5 of 5

Für unsere Azorenreise Mitte März suchten wir eine Unterkunft. Es sollte auf jeden Fall ein Ferienhaus sein und es gibt jede Menge schöner und interessanter Objekte auf der Insel...zu guten Preisen ...in der Nebensaison...(finde ich :-)). Wir hatten uns ursprünglich für ein ländliches, kleineres Haus entschieden und bekamen dann vom Vermieter dieses Objektes ein Angebot, dass wir nicht ablehnen konnten. Wann hat man schon mal die Möglichkeit auf 400qm, mit Pool und Hanglage, direkt am Atlantik zu übernachten!? Wir konnten unser Glück nicht fassen und waren etwas skeptisch, ob es bei der ganzen Sache noch einen Haken geben würde...gabs aber nicht! Die Kommunikation mit dem Vermieter (Roberto) klappte einwandfrei und unkompliziert. Wir kamen am späten Abend in Ponta Delgada an und Roberto empfing uns direkt am Flughafen und fuhr mit uns ins Haus und zeigte uns alles. Es war sehr angenehm und wie gesagt..unkompliziert! Wir sahen unsere Vermieter die ganze Woche nicht, hätten aber sicher jederzeit Hilfe oder Rat bekommen. Die Villa hat einen sehr interessanten und modernen Stil. Der Aussenbereich ist großzügig und der Blick auf den Hafen von Vila Franca do Campo sehr schön! Ein Highlight hatten wir idR gleich morgens, wenn wir Frühstück auf der Terrasse vor dem Pool aßen...mit Blick auf den Ozean...es war einfach nur grandios! Wir waren zu dritt und hatten so viel Platz und es war ein Genuss jeden Abend von unseren anstrengenden Touren nach Hause zu kommen und den Abend auf der Terrasse ausklingen zu lassen. Eine bessere Unterkunft hätten wir uns nicht wünschen können und ohne Übertreibung war das sicher auch die beste Unterkunft, die ich in einem Urlaub je hatte. Es gab ein paar kleine Abweichungen von der Beschreibung (Solarium, Garage fehlten,..3 statt 5 Bäder..keine Heizung!), aber das hat uns nicht gestört..wir waren einfach nur glücklich in unserer Villa. Internet ist da...Geschirrspüler, Waschmaschine...Fernseher..3 Bäder (eines mit Badewanne). Dass die Heizung fehlt, hat uns zuerst etwas erschreckt, da wir nie mehr als 20 Grad hatten und es nachts bis 11-12 Grad kalt wird...aber das hat uns im Nachhinein eigentlich nicht gestört. Wir haben drinnen nie gefroren...und in der wärmeren Jahreszeit ist das ja überhaupt kein Problem. Unser Fazit ist: Mit dieser Villa macht man alles richtig! Es war eine ausgezeichnete Entscheidung und wir hatten einfach nur eine traumhafte Zeit in Vila Franca do Campo und überhaupt auf der ganzen Insel!

  • 5 of 5

«A casa é excelente e conrrespondeu às expectativas. A vista é magnifica sobre o Oceano e como pano de fundo, o ilhéu a não perder.Para umas férias em grupo esta é a casa ideal e recomenda-se. A ilha é deslumbrante e mereceu todos os dias da minha estadia. Pela beleza e pela forma como a mesma é cuidada o povo de São Miguel está de parabéns.

A todos o meu obrigado, pela beleza que eu e o meu grupo de amigos pudemos desfrutar durante a nossa estadia.»
