A great apartment with amazing hosts! Near restaurants and a bike ride to town.

  • 5 of 5

This was such a lovely stay. The hosts are 110% the best I have ever come across. They are so helpful and great with communication. Their little apartments are new, clean and very modern with A/C. You have use of a washing machine, clothesline, and bicycles. Quick ride to the main part of town, where we would bike in the evenings to dinner. The apartment we stayed in had the view of the ocean, and they are located right next door to a yummy restaurant. We would definitely recommend this place, and we would gladly stay here again. There is also 2 parking lots close by to park a car if you are planning to rent one. Thanks again!!!

Perfectly located, clean, welcoming place with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Elisabete and João are amazing hosts. We felt like family the moment we entered.

Property faces the beautiful ocean and cliffs, walking and biking paths run from the front door to the center of Ponta Delgada. We used provided bikes to easily pedal to the city and nearby beaches.

Inside the unit is super clean, modern and has everything we needed.

Parking our rental car close to the property was not a problem.

Why not!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time using VRBO at 74-80, great experience and accommodations. No autos are going by you, only, people and bicyclist, as the picture is accurate. A proper restaurant entrance side entrance 12 ft away, you can get a beer and local shrimp 10-12, for $2.50 each, and much more.

Joan (John) and Elisabeth are perfect hosts, and they could not do enough for us, maybe our age? No, they treat all the same and point out the highlights of Sao Miguel. A public saltwater ocean pool steps away, when open.

Just sit back and enjoy life, we did.

Wonderful Island Apartment with Kind Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This sweet little apartment is everything described in the listing and more. So clean and well-maintained with a fabulous view and right on a scenic waterfront walkway/bikeway that takes you to the main part of Ponta Delgada. A restaurant is right next door that serves delicious seafood and traditional family type meals if you don't feel like going into town. Elizabeth and João were so kind and helpful! They picked us up from the airport upon our arrival and had coffee, fruit, English muffins and other goodies in the refrigerator there for us. They provided bicycles with helmets that we could use. These were a bit small for us but served perfectly well to allow us to ride a couple of miles around the area before we got a rental car. There is convenient free parking nearby, within a couple minutes walk.

The island has plenty of activities and places to visit. We went whale watching one day from Ponta Delgada and spent several other days visiting Lagoa des Sete Cidades (don't miss the great view from Monte Palace - an abandoned 1970s resort), Lagoa do Fogo, Furnas and more. Everywhere you go there are scenic views from this volcanic paradise. We had a great vacation!

Great apartment. Clean, conveniently located with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect! The location was right on the water and you could see the ocean from the windows. It’s just outside of Ponta Delgada in sao roque. However there is a walking or biking path along the water that takes you right into Ponta Delgada. Bicycles with helmets and locks are provided by the host. There is a parking lot for your car which is very convenient as well. The host was absolutely wonderful. She was quick to answer us and even left us some locals snacks and treats upon arrival. She offered to dry our clothes that we were washing in the machine that’s provided and when we came back our clothes were even folded. I couldn’t believe it! The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting sao Miguel!!

I wish you all the best for your lives, and I hope one day to see you again- Genevieve, Laura and Kate. Cheers Elisabete

Car: recommended

The Casa do Ilhéu is in the parish of São Roque, in the Municipality of Ponta Delgada. It is a parish facing the sea, with 3 beaches and a natural swimming pool. Along the coast of the parish, there are several walks and bicycle paths, where daily several people walk and exercise, walking, running or cycling. Right next to our house is the famous restaurant / seafood restaurant "Cais 20", and also on foot you can go to 2 other renowned restaurants on the island: "Mariserra" and "Galego". There are also several bars with live music, grocery store, frutaria, butcher shop, pharmacy and parks. You can most probably find the famous football player: Pedro Pauleta (who is from the parish), who was a player of Paris Saint Germain and the Portuguese Football Team. The city of Ponta Delgada offers a range of entertainment, such as horse-drawn carriage rides, boat trips, dolphin and whale watching, diving, water boating, countless restaurants / bars, nightclubs and shops. In the summer there is almost every day live music in the City, as well as cultural activities. It has a museum, several centennial gardens, the famous Carthusian Cave (lava tunnels), which extend for kilometers below the city.
