“Perfect base for exploring Sao Miguel”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Firstly, many thanks to Jaime for his prompt responses to our questions pre-arrival and his friendly meeting to guide us to the property at the start of our stay.
You will need a car but the house is perfectly situated to use as a base for day trips to the island's attractions. Only a 15min drive to Ponta Delgada.
The house is beautifully light and airy with stunning views of the ocean. We were lucky with the weather during our stay and had mostly sunny days. The top terrace is in sun all day so perfect for a little sunbathing.The lower terrace has shade so is perfect for outside dining at any time of day.
Everything was spotlessly clean, we did have an ant problem, but kept them away with the ant powder provided and extra care over food waste.
Kitchen is well equipped including both a filter and Nespresso coffee machine. Basic provisions such as olive oil and seasonings were available. Nice fresh fruit basket on arrival.
A very steep walk up to the village centre is rewarded by stunning views, charming square with small bar and outside seating to watch the locals argue over their cards and dominoes. There is a supermarket and nice restaurant.
The weather was very hot and humid during our stay which made sleeping without airconditioning a bit tricky for me (rest of the family didn't mind). In a way though I think aircon would have taken something away from the sensorary experience of our stay on the island. There is a nice fireplace if your stay is in cooler months.
Deposit refunded exactly when due. We felt it was good value for money.
No hesitation in recommending this property and Jaime.
