Roberto was a kind host. He was a little difficult to reach, but nothing to worry about. The house itself was lovely on the exterior, just as in the photos. The interior needs updating on the walls and floors. All appliances worked just fine. Overall, I would recommend, but don't expect great luxury.
It was a beautiful view to say the least. Everything worked at the house, plenty of room. Beds were comfortable.
Thank you for everything.
and a very sympathetic and very organized group
and thank you
I hope you see them again, or some friends or family.
Great value. Modern. Comfortable
We were a group of 9 people. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep comfortably. The pool is lovely but it was too cold to swim in at the time of year we were there. We still spent time outside by the pool enjoying the views of the ocean. All the conveniences in the kitchen were available. As well as a washer and dryer for clothes
Beautiful Ocean View
I would like to start by saying that Sao Miguel is breathtakingly beautiful and the ocean view from the house was no exception. The pool was a welcome spot after a hot day of sightseeing. We arrived a bit early and had to wait a few minutes for the house to be prepared for our stay. Roberto was very attentive and quickly dealt with issues that would arise. He gave us a quick tour of the house and explained how to use the appliances etc. What struck me first was that the house is in need of some TLC. The exit to the pool screens needed to be repaired or replaced and some of the furniture both inside and out should be replaced. The hot weather meant that we had to leave the doors open and had issues with flying insects etc. We also had a difficult time locking the doors and often would leave them unlocked. I've rented many properties over the years and understand that there are different expectations when it comes to kitchen supplies, but was surprised to find that there was nothing in terms of staples available, we had to go to the local market to purchase salt, sugar, paper towels and napkins etc. Also wasn't happy with the level of clean in the bathrooms, the corners of the tub/shower stalls were dark with mildew and the edges of the faucets were also dark. The most disappointing was the "grill", I was surprised that there wasn't a propane grill, only a rough stone bbq with a rusted grill that hadn't been cleaned. Limiting all our meals to be prepared on the stove. The stove took some getting used to, as it was convection and wouldn't work unless a certain type of pot was used, so my little expresso maker couldn't be used on it. All the other appliances were great and very clean. The house was large and generally comfortable with wifi etc. We liked to walk from the house into Villa Franca and it was only a few minute walk to a lovely dark sand beach. Grocery shopping was also a short 5 minute drive away. The house and it's location was perfect for adults, I would not recommend this house if you have small children. There is a major drop from the edge of the property beyond the pool with no fence or any safety. When walking into town there are spots with no sidewalks making it dangerous for children. Although we had some issues, we enjoyed our stay and I would have rated the property higher if the screens weren't is such bad shape. I would spend each morning at the edge of the property overlooking the ocean and fishing port below. Loved it!

Beautiful View and Pool!
I loved my stay at this villa. Let’s start with the view; it is incredible! It overlooks Ilheu da Vila, with Vila Franca do Campo to the right. The pool has a beautiful blue tile with an infinity edge. Frankly, I could have just lounged around by the pool for a week and called it a successful vacation. But, do go out and see the island, as it is very beautiful.
You should know that the listing’s description for the number of bedrooms and bathrooms is incorrect. Rather than “zero” bathrooms, it has at least three full bathrooms. I believe it has four bedrooms, rather than five, but I may be misremembering that as there were only two of us (and we only needed one).
The interior of the house is well appointed, with nice décor and nice surfaces/finishes. A previous reviewer complained about a lack of pantry items (e.g., spices, paper towels, etc.), but I did not find it to be different from other villas I’ve rented in Europe. Those items are typically not provided.
Roberto was easy to work with and very accommodating. When you consider the location, view, pool and number of bedrooms and bathrooms, this villa is a great value. If I come back to Sao Miguel, I would most certainly rent this house again.
This villa is fantastic, seven of us got back today, we had a amazing time. The jacuzzi in the master room is amazing, more so with a glass of wine watching the sun set. Everything you need is here.
The only thing that we didn't appreciate was the constant visits from the owner and them entering the villa when we was all out, however, I do understand why he does this as the property is so amazing, he doesn't want it ruined.
Fantastic villa would recommend to anyone.
Um grupo muito simpáticos
As minhas visitas constantes a casa era para ver se esta tudo bem ,e para limpar a sujidade da casa porque estava sempre uma lastima com garrafas de cerveja por todo o lado da casa . piscina etc.
Grupo bebia muito e muito álcool , e nem só !!
Mês correu tudo bem .
