Ribeira Grande house description

Creek side is the perfect place to return to after a day of Azorean exploration, golf and adventure on beautiful San Miguel island!
Inside, the house has been tastefully transformed into a most comfortable gathering place with beautiful furniture and cozy beds. A full designer kitchen featuring Angolan granite counter tops, 5 burner flat cook top stove, 2 wall ovens, espresso and N. American style coffee machines plus dishwasher is sure to please the chef in the group! A dining table with 4 chairs is complemented by the large, granite topped center island with 4 uber chic' bar stools.
The terrace or placa is the main feature of the beautifully remodeled backyard. It's perfect for star gazing or that morning coffee while planing the days activities. There is also a seating/dining area complete with both gas BBQ and a wood burning outdoor fireplace for relaxing and sharing the days experiences.
Vivenda Clayton boasts a fully climate controlled environment with full laundry facilities ensuring your maximum comfort.


Don't feel like cooking? No problem! About 5 minutes in Ribeira Grande there's the 'Alaboat Restaurant' with local cuisine as well as cuisine from around the globe!!! A must go!!
Directly across the street from the front door is a gentle stream flanked by huge Eucalyptus type trees and rose bushes climbing across on trellises--a beautiful sight, to be sure.
A short 2km down the road is the town of Riberia Grande whose amazing beach has played host to the Billabong World Cup of Surfing qualifying event 3 years running.
Vivenda Clayton has full internet access with free WIFI and digital HDTV programing
Come and enjoy yourself on the beautiful green island of San Miguel, and relax at Vivenda Clayton. You won't be disappointed!

P.S. - When checking for flights you must look up Ponta Delgada airport (PDL) as that is the main airport on the island.

          Of course all of the religious 'Festas' festivities throughout the Islands are one of the main attractions every week of the summer where the local culture is at it peak and the regular traveler gets to sample a bit of everything the Island has to offer.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2010

          About the owner: Margarida was born on the island of Terceira, grew up on San Miguel, and now lives near Toronto, Canada. Her husband Daniel is a hockey loving Canadian, through and through! They purchased Vivenda Clayton and completely revovated it with the intent of having a clean, safe, central, yet familiar small-town feel home for Margaridas' elderly parents, and it proved to be just that. Now, they would love to share that with anyone who wants to visit this beautiful, most wonderous island. There are so many incredible things to see and do here on San Miguel we are certain that one day you will return! Daniel has made the trip from Canada 14 times now, and never tires of the endless beauty, incredible sea foods and especially the fresh bread and myriad of local cheeses!

          Why the Owner Chose Ribeira Grande:
          Anyone and everyone who unwinds at Vivenda Clayton shares in the comforts that we've created for ourselves. Daniel has visited San Miguel island on numerous occasions and realized a need for a climate controlled environment within the home, and the heating & air conditioning system works fantastically. If you don't know, you should!! first Sunday of August and after the 6th, that week is dedicated to the town, the house is located beside the church and if you are not into festivities of the type you should not visit the Island then as it can be to much fun... the whole town partys.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The backyard is the Clayton's favorite retreat within the home. It's two separate and distinct levels offer a great combination of lower level outdoor fireplace with upper level star gazing or morning coffee. Try to make friends with the host of tiny gecko's living in the lava stone walls or plan the days adventures....
