“Like staying with family”
Reviewed 14 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Everything was surreal, from landing to leaving. John picked us up at the airport. The house was even better than the pictures. There is a patio off the kitchen and balconies off two of the upstairs bedrooms, both could be considered "Masters". Each with its own bath. A third bedroom and loft can fit a crew.
On arrival, John gave us a tour of the house and all necessary info. The place was stocked with wine, beer, milk, juice, butter and bread. All cooking and dining ecessentials are there. Cable TV and laundry as well. John gave us his cell phone number and was always available and helpful for any questions.
Walking distance to beach and restaurants. If you love seafood, you can't get any fresher. Caught that morning, dining at lunch or dinner. All the food and wine, thumbs up!
Walking distance to grocery store and the quaint green. You will have to experience for yourself. Can't describe. We loved it.
Wonderful people, wonderful house, amazing stay.
Can't wait to see you John and your family again! Nessie, Tatiana, and little John, miss you already!
Obrigado!
Ok, I won't try to speak Portuguese.

“Awesome rental, location and people.”
Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The house was great, more room than we needed, plenty of space and everything that you need is pretty much provided. Grocery store is close, along with a few shops, the main street, the beach, cafes, restaurants. It was on a quiet safe street with friendly neighbours. There was nothing that we lacked. It was a great stay, our first visit to the island and would definite stay there again.

“Excellent location in traditional, yet comfortable home”
Reviewed 8 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Very spacious 2 bedroom 3 full bathroom home situated in the perfect central island location on the north shore, within easy walking distance of two beaches, restaurants, grocery store and Ribeira Grande town. This home also has a loft space with several additional beds, plus a sofa bed and futon, providing space for up to 14 people! The living room and kitchen are very open and bright, and although traditional to the island, you'll find all the amenities and comforts you're looking for! Added bonus is the attached garage and very private back yard, though our car was too big to fit in the garage!

Diane was extremely accommodating and helpful both before and during our stay. She provided us with many suggestions of things to do and see, and restaurants to try. She also surprised us with a bottle of wine chilling in the frig, along with cheese, juice and water. Her brother and father live adjacent to the home, so were there to greet us when we arrived and answer any questions we had. It was comforting to know that someone was just next door should anything have come up.

I would highly recommend this rental home to anyone planning on touring the island - it's the perfect central location, and has everything you'd need for a comfortable and relaxing stay.

“Wow - Huge house on a wonderful island”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016
1
person found this review helpful

My teens couldn't have been more surprised when we opened the door. The house looks deceptively small from the front but it is by far the largest place we have ever stayed in with room for everyone to spread out and have their space. All the rooms are huge. It is very clean, tastefully decorated, well fitted out with I think, everything you could need and then some. There is a courtyard area and two small balconies at the back of the house leading out from two of the bedrooms.
The location is in a residential area and you can park easily on the road or in the garage. The nearby beach is big with big waves and fun for body boarding or jumping the waves even if you can't surf. Old town and large supermarket are close by. Monte Verde fish restaurant is very good and 10 mins walk. There are a few more places but we didn't get around to eating in them.
As for exploring the rest of Sao Miguel, the central location is perfect. This was our first time to the Azores and I hope not our last. There is so much to see just on this one island. Really peaceful and stunningly beautiful.
Diane and the contact John who lives next door are both very friendly and helpful. If we come again, we'll definitely be staying here.

“Great and comfortable house”
Reviewed 18 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were 5 people who stayed in this great place for two weeks.
House is really big and even much better than on photos. There was wine and some food to make breakfast waiting for us.
House is located very good as you are almost in the middle of island and you can get to every of beautiful places in the island very fast.
In few minutes walk is perfect beach, great restaurants and big supermarket.
House is perfectly equipped, we were even surprised about so fast WiFi.
We are perfectly satisfied with choosing this place and hope to stay here during our next visit to this Wonderful island!

P.S. super bonus was that we were met in the airport absolutely for free.
