Lovely balcony and view

  • 4 of 5

The apartment has a lovely balcony and is a short walk to a beautiful beach and 2 nearby hikes. The beds were not comfortable though and the apartment could use a fan to circulate the air but otherwise the apartment is spacious and homey. The property manager left us a wonderful assortment of fresh fruit, local bolo bread, jam and milk which we enjoyed as our breakfast on the balcony for all 4 days. Overall a pleasant experience.

Perfect location, great place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks with our two young children and our only wish is that we could have stayed longer! The apartment is perfect for relaxing and is great for the children too. It is literally 3 minutes walk from the beach. The apartment has enough space and is very clean and comfortable, a good kitchen, the owner is very friendly and helpful and also left some gifts when we arrived so we had a nice breakfast on the first morning after a late arrival!

The apartment is at Praia dos Moinhos and is the perfect location to explore the island. We could drive for 20 minutes and be in Lagoa do Fogo, or Furnas, and so many other places to explore are easy to reach from here. Its also only 25 minutes to Ponta Delgada as the roads are very good.

If you have never been to the Azores we couldn't recommend a better place to visit, and this apartment is a perfect base to explore the island, but also to relax on the balcony and look out over the beaches, cliffs and ocean.

Everything You Need :D

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the apartment owner is one of the most genuine and approachable people I have ever met. He picked us up from the airport despite us arriving late at night and left us many complimentary local foods and drinks in the apartment. He also offered us the possibility to rent a great 4x4 car for a good price.

Secondly, the apartment had everything we needed. The view from the balcony of the best beach on the island was spectacular and breathtaking. The kitchen was very well fitted out and in particular with coffee making appliances. There is even a barbecue with all the items you need to start one one (e.g. coal, matches, lighting cubes). The owner provides replacement towels and can send someone to clean the apartment during your stay if you so wish.

Thirdly, we found the location to be very good as it was away from the more touristy cities like Ponta Delgada but still within a close distance and well connected by motorways. The apartment is a 5 minute walk downhill to the beach, where you can access wifi for free.

The only 2 very small remarks I can possibly think of are that hot water ran out after 3 people showered in a row but that is to be expected and I'm sure you can easily get by that by altering settings on the boiler. The second is the absence of wifi in the apartment in the summer but as mentioned above, the beach has a bar with free wifi so it's not a big deal.

Overall, I very highly recommend this apartment and highly advise to rent out the car as well.

Car: recommended

Beach "Praia dos Moinhos" one of the most beautiful of the island is just 2 minutes walking from the apt.

Near have a beach bar, famous by is burguer and a restaurant with great fresh fish and seafood. In just 10 minutes walking you have a waterfall.

Great place to relax and enjoy the fantastic view above the sea and mountais.

It is recommend to have a car or jeep, so you can discover gravel roads that end in beautiful lakes.

Located on the north side and in the middle of the island, it's a fantastic Location to visit all the island. Near you have great places to visit like Furnas, Lagoa do Fogo, Chá do Porto Formoso, Caldeiras da Ribeira Grande, and more.
