Terceira Island House Rental Photos and Description
House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft + Office, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 5-10)
IF ONLY ONE COUPLE arrangements can be made for one bedroom rental @90 Euros/night. Breakfast included. Private room and bath. during January to May only.
This is a 5 Bedroom Home with a 180 degree view of the Atlantic Ocean to the South.
The house is spacious and elegant with five bedrooms. Each has a double/queen bed. The two bedrooms downstairs each have full private bathrooms. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms-two with views of the ocean. There is a sitting area and full bathroom as well.
On the main (first) floor there is a balcony/porch that wraps around the front and sides of the house. From this balcony, you have a greater than 180 degree view of the ocean, with the Ilheus das Cabras to your left and Monte Brasil to your right. There is also a patio outside the kitchen, with tables and chairs for entertaining.
Just a short walk down the road will bring you to natural swimming pools. Since the island is volcanic, there are very few sandy beaches. Instead there are designated areas where people can swim in mini rock pools. The swimming area at the bottom of the street is a local swimming spot, but there are many others that are worth a visit.
The house is optimally situated in Serretinha, right outside the main city of Angra. It's only a 5-10 minute drive to the port and the downtown areas. Angra do Heroismo has been designated by UNESCO as an historical town. Almost every other part of the island can be accessed in under 30 minutes. Praia da Vitoria is a 25 minute drive.

About The Owner
I was born and raised on the island of Terceira. I moved to the United States when I was 15 years old. I am an attorney and live in New Jersey. I also have three children.
I have seen many beautiful places in the world, but I always find the Azores to be the most enchanting. For that reason, I decided to build a house in my place of birth. You will find my home to be your 'home' . It is charming and comfortable. As my friends who stay there often say 'Your home has good karma'.
Thank you for reading my rental ad.

Why The Owner chose Terceira Island
I was born in the Azores - Terceira Island.
What makes this house unique
My house has a very traditional Portuguese feel, but also combines more modern elements in terms of decor and functionality. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the tools you need to create a great meal. All the rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable.
My house is also perfectly situated--it's on a steep hillside with amazing views. But it's also close enough to Angra. Also, having the 'beach' (natural rock pool) at the bottom of the street is also nice if you want a quick swim.
