Bonita and Ed Sousa have created a wonderful getaway on the island of Sao Miguel just minutes from the airport but tucked away amidst gardens lovingly tended and cabins thoughtfully appointed. They were attentive hosts who helped us connect to island attractions and events, provided insight into the island and its people, and overall made our stay a pleasant one...

Encouraged by reviews from numerous others, we decided to book a week with Ed and Bonita for a quiet getaway after a hectic summer. Bonita's welcome late at night in pouring rain was a great relief.

My family and I decided to spend a couple of days exploring Sao Miguel, the largest island in Azores, Portugal.
