We enjoyed our stay here very much. The place is clean and well equipped. The location is very convenient. It is easy to get to all parts of the Island from here. Beautiful views of the water. Mr. Martins is very responsive and easy to work with. We would love to return.
It was our pleasure having you with us.
Enjoyed my stay, the view is incredible!
Comfortable home with gorgeous views
We couldn't have been more happy with our stay at the Martins' home in Ribeira Grande. They were such generous hosts: When our phones failed us and our car GPS wouldn't work, Mr. Martins drove to meet us at a grocery store in a nearby town to lead us to the house. They also welcomed us with a lovely gift basket since we were celebrating our 10 year anniversary there.
The house was very comfortable for our party of five (which included my two young children.) There are three terraces with amazing views of the nearby beach. The mattresses were good and the kitchen was well equipped. It is only a short walk down the road to the beach, which had a life guard, very nice bathrooms and outdoor showers. It was as nice as any beach we saw on the island, and it kept my kids occupied for hours without even needing to get in the car.
Overall I highly recommend this property. We hope to come again!
It was pleasure to have you and your lovely family in our beach house.
Charmante maison située dans un lieu paisible et enchanteur
La Casa das Hortensias est une jolie maison très confortable située dans un lieu enchanteur avec vue sur la mer et les collines verdoyantes des environs. Le propriétaire et ses fils sont très aimables et efficaces. L’endroit est calme et en retrait de la cohue, mais sa situation au centre de Sao Miguel permet de rayonner partout sur l’île. C’est un lieu parfait pour passer des vacances extraordinaires et nous y retournerions avec plaisir.
Ce fut un plaisir de recevoir Louis et sa famille dans notre maison de plage. Merci
Nice house with a fantastic view
The house was large, clean, and had everything we needed. Josè was easy to work with and very accommodating about check in and check out.
The house has three great patios that face the crashing surf and cliffs of the island. The retractable awning is especially nice to have. The waves really are crashing very close and you will hear them with the windows open.
Saò Miguel was also phenomenally beautiful. Our advice is to plan extra time while driving and take every single scenic turn out you see. There are many and they are all amazing and often surprising.
Fantastic view, comfortable house in a quiet setting
We were very happy with our stay. The house was comfortable and well equipped. The deck outside the kitchen overlooks the ocean and dramatic cliffs- a wonderful place to enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the sunrise. The house is located a short walk from a small village, close enough to be convenient but far enough away that it's very quiet, with just the sound of the ocean. The house is a relatively short and easy drive from Ponta Delgada and the airport making it a good base for exploring the island. Jose was a very good host- all questions were answered promptly, Jose was there to greet us when we arrived and was very helpful. We would definitely consider renting this property again if returning.
Thanks you. We really appreciate your staying with us. We hope to see you soon in a near future.
