“Great stay !!”
Reviewed 27 April 2017 for a stay in July 2016

Perfect stay in Miguel's home. In the city center, very clean. Miguel is very nice and helped us to find good places to visit. He likes his island and likes to share with his guests.
I really recommend that place to visit the east part of Sao Miguel. Thanks again, Miguel,for smile and hospitality !!!

“great value for money”
Reviewed 9 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Miguel is very friendly, easy to talk to, can make soup and he is not boring; he is a wonderful person, feels like a friend, not a host. His house is nice, very clean, well located (but there is school very close to, and children from there will not let you sleep long in the morning); it's easy to park on the street. The double bed is big but a bit too hard. Be aware that house can be difficult to find, there is no logic in numeration of houses on the street. Area is one of the most beautiful on the island on my opinion. All in all - great value for money

“Very good, very comfortable and a good welcome.”
Reviewed 17 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

You get the top floor with a good-sized bedroom with double bed and lots of storage, small bathroom (with shower, not bath), long living space with comfortable furniture and a small balcony looking out over the little garden onto the street. Much of the interior is lovely warm wood. It feels quiet and enclosing. Street is busy and a bit ordinary but not too noisy - quite nice to watch life go by. You get a great view beyond the street/houses beyond to the hills above he town. There is on-street parking (assumes you have a car which you will need). Miguel very welcoming, helpful and plenty of local advice. You get the feeling of living in a family home but the top floor is private despite having an open spiral staircase to the floor below. Miguel and his children are very quiet and wouldn't dream of disturbing guests.

Povoacao is a mix of working and pretty. Landscape is stunning. The Portuguese are charming and helpful. Restaurants and cafes abound. Favourite: Jardim but the restaurant at the harbour is very good too and has the views).

If you can figure out to dates of the March and September festivals go then! Povoacao was briefly full of marching bands and streets filled (literally) with flowers and a great buzz.

The Atlantic in September is warmer than the swimming pools :-) Paradise is a walk around Lagoa do Furnas :-))

“The place is perfect”

The place is perfect for discovering the southern part of Sao Miguel with its picturesque viewpoints, beaches, natural hotsprings, waterfalls and a ton of other beauties. The room is very nice, clean and spacious if you need your privacy.
Miguel is the most welcoming host, so if you need anything, he's always there to help you. He is a good company as well, so if you want a taste of true island - just ask him.
I would definitely recommend this place.

Miguel is a very kind person, he waited us at our arrival even if was very late and he provided all information we needed.
The house is comfortable and clean and every morning we enjoyed breakfast.
We had rent a car and from this point we visited the island up and down left to right based on the suggestion we received from Miguel.
We had a nice stay!
