This house was very close to the city with a bakery and market nearby. It also has a driveway and parking nearby if needed. It has all the basic needs for your stay. You will have to deal with some noise as it is on a busy street. The nearby rooster might also wake you up early but that is part of the Sao Miguel experience. For my first time not staying with family it was a very good choice.
Very nice, clean apt. Very pleasant hosts. Convenient location for traveling (near highway), short walk to city center, supermarket. Nice residential street.
Convenient, free parking.
A few minor drawbacks- no air conditioning or fan; gets noisy in the evening from cars and barking dogs. I would add a few more basic extras- toilet paper, coffee, washing machine detergent...
all in all- I recommend this vacation apt.
My sister, my son and I stayed here for a week during July 2015. From beginning to end the whole experience was faultless and an absolute pleasure. The Pereira family are the most gracious and welcoming hosts anyone could hope for. They tirelessly answered my many questions, always responded immediately and even waited until after midnight on the day of our arrival because our flight from London was heavily delayed. The house itself has everything you need and it spotlessly clean. It is close to the town centre so everything can be reached on foot. Close by are several cafes and a little supermarket as well as a take away. I can whole heartedly recommend the Pereira family and Casa do Basalto to anyone who is planning a trip to the stunning Azores.
