Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: Mario & I both born in S. Miguel, in the late 1960's then in our early teens as a result of hard economic oppression, our families uprooted immigrating to Canada ready to work hard with hope for a brighter future. In the year of 1978 Mario & I got married & 1981 'twins son & daughter' Over the years we have visited S. Miguel often, we both love the Azores especially São Miguel Island, with Mario's love for the ocean, we adventured and purchased this piece of paradise. We would be honoured at the opportunity to have you make this your holiday home too. Let us be the ones to Welcome you to this wonderful & enchanting Island of São Miguel.

Why Ponta Delgada:
This location is perfect, with easy access to all parts of the Island. We purchased this home for the simple fact that it is situated right by the ocean! This very cozy home provides us with plenty of privacy. We enjoy our daily walks through the property all the way to ocean side. The abundant six acre parcel of land surrounded by many century old trees and the sound of chirping birds is very delightful. The fact that this house up until the early 1940’s was the local primary school for the then very small population of this town became very intriguing to us. This town’s population today is less than 2000. Here we satisfy our love for the ocean by snorkeling and fishing alone or by joining the locals. We also love driving right into our property via an automated gate, we park in total privacy, We love the fact that this location offers the best of both, privacy and a sense of being disconnected from the rest of the world, while at the same time it is well balanced with all the conveniences very close by.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
The very appealing unique feature of this home is that you can walk down its very own private way all the way to the ocean; you can go for a swim or you can just take in the ocean's grandeur and amazing endless views. Homes like this one that offers direct access to the ocean is not the norm here, this is mainly due to the fact that São Miguel like other islands nature is that of cliffs around the ocean. The added fact that the original stone oven is still operational, and today and is being used to cook authentic Azorean food is an absolute gem! The very thick stone walls of this house add a constant regulated indoor temperature, making it a very cozy place to spend a lot of time indoors. We carefully renovated, by bringing the entire house up to date, while at the same time maintaining the integrity of the old world charm; Most recently, year end of 2012 we have introduced the private in property parking behind a remote controlled gate. For our Golf enthusiasts We have a special arrangement with the Batalha Golf; We offer you the same special Golf rates as the Hotels that cater to Golf Tournaments!
