About Eduino and Bonita Sousa

Eduino and Bonita Sosua made a life transition when they moved to Sao Miguel in 2006. Eduino, born on Sao Miguel, immigrated as a young boy with his family to western Canada in 1968. He met Bonita in College. Throughout the years they have developed expertise in several career environments. Eduino´s profession as a welder developed into a successful art career in metal sculpting. His sculptures are displayed in Canada, United States, France, Belgium and the Azores. A private collection of his works is displayed in Quinta das Acacias; the only private sculptural gardens in the Azores. Bonita, born in Canada has worked more than two decades in sales, administration and bookkeeping. These career experiences have led Eduino and Bonita into a rewarding business of investment and property managment.

After travelling to the Azores on vacation with their sons, they pursued the idea of purchasing a vacation home. In the process, they were introduced to Quinta das Acacias. They purchased the quinta in December, 2006 and opened the doors to world travellers in 2007 with new and improved operations.

Today, the proven success of Quinta das Acacias enables Eduino and Bonita to help outside visitors with the purchase and management of their dream vacation home,.

Our goal is to greet and service our guests to the best of our capabilities and see that they leave as new friends with many fond memories to return.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed in cottage #6 for a week. Accommodation & appliances were good, location was excellent, conveniently near to the highway leading to Ponta Delgada, the airport or the nearest supermarket in a few minutes (but very well protected from any nuisance such as traffic noise), but on top of that, we will never forget the heavenly garden, and most of all the kindness and hospitality of our guests, Bonita & Ed.

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely gorgeous. The grounds and gardens were spectacular. Place is clean and very well equipped with all the cooking utensil you will need. Bonita and Ed were very helpful with guiding us on good places to eat and things to see. I would recommend this place to anyone that wants to visit the island.

We will definitely be back

Un bel giardino...

  • 4 of 5

Location incantevole sotto l'aspetto botanico e logistico: un giardino rigoglioso, come lo sono d'altronde le Azzorre, una cura quasi maniacale dell'ordine: sembra di essere in un giardino zen.

Logisticamente per la visita dell'isola è situato in una posizione strategica: a metà dell'isola, nella parte sud a 5 minuti da Ponta Delgada, a due minuti dalla super strada a 5 minuti da Lagoa. Come dicevo ordine pulizia impeccabili sia dentro l'appartamento che fuori. Luogo sicuramente tranquillo allietato dal carillon del campanile della vicina chiesa ogni mezz'ora a scandire il dolce passare del tempo. L'unica cosa che suggerirei un restyling dell'arredo del bagno ed una TV un po' "aggiornata": a colpo d'occhio andrebbero a migliorare ancor di più la già ottima impressione che già c'è. Per chi cerca la pace a due passi dal resto del mondo...

David & Kathleen's holiday

  • 5 of 5

As I stated in the guest book. "When the gates opened and we saw the beautiful scene before us we were overwhelmed by the beauty of it all." The gardens were thoughtfully pleasing to the eye and beckoned to be strolled through. The entire stay was perfect, quiet and relaxing. I love everything about this lovely place as well as all of the Acores Islands. I truly felt home in my heart. I will return someday soon, so my children may share my joy and pride in our Azorean ancestry.

Sincerely,

David & Kathleen Stark, Jackson California

Our stay at Quinta das Acacias

  • 5 of 5

Peace and tranquility begin the moment the gates open up to allow you to enter this little piece of paradise! Bonita and Ed go above and beyond the "call of duty" . The care and attention to detail that Ed and Bonita put towards their gardens and cottages are equal to the attention and care that they extend to their clients.

We have lived on this beautiful island for a year and have yet to see an area of this island as enchanting as this Quinta.

We have lived on this island for a year and have yet to meet a more friendly, knowledgable, and giving family as the Sousas!

A hidden gem that MUST be experienced

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing quite like being at Ed and Bonita's Quinta. A view of the ocean, a smell of the flowers, a sense of serenity. If anyone is looking for a place unique to this world, I highly recommend Azores. And what better way to appreciate it than in a comfortable vacationing area like this quinta.

The central position of Quinta das Acacias exposes unreserved access to the visitor that seeks a world of discovery. An 8 km drive to the center of Ponta Delgada will expose several botanical gardens dating back to mid 19th century. Centuries old architecture of basalt stone, traditional markets, quaint shops in narrow streets with cobblestone designs, sidewalk cafes and the numerous restaurants that will help the visitor taste this travelling experience. Populo beach with its clean waters and warm temperature is only 2 km to the south. To the west, one will find the legendary twin lakes of Sete Cidades. To the east, the hills of Nordeste displays an almost rain forest appeal. Beyond, villages with timeless traditions line the coast that so often is bathed by some of the most spectacular sunrises of the Atlantic. The true lover of nature will not resist the affair that Sao Miguel has to offer. (Google Earth-Lat. 37´45´16´34´N,Long.25´36´12´61´W)

Other Activities: hiking, whale watching, historic parks, museums

Golf: Two Golf Courses on the island of Sao Miguel. Both equally spectacular, scenic-wise and challenge-wise. The Batalha course supports a 27 hole, par 72. Approximate distance 12 km or 15 minute drive. The Furnas course is an 18 hole, par 72. Approximate distance 35 km or 45 minute drive. Batalha Golf course hosted the Senior European golf tournament in 2008.

Thermal pools of Poca Dona Beija in Furnas is fantastic during the cooler seasons.
