My wife and I traveled for the first time to the Açores. We were so lucky to have stayed in Barbara and Manuel's home with unbelievable views and startlingly breathtaking walks to dizzying, precipitous drops to the Atlantic. Whew! The home was also a great base camp from which we traveled to other sights of Sao Miguel. We had a very pleasurable stay.
Barbara and Manuel are lovely, warm, and generous people. Their little doggies, Scruffy and Fina, are engaging and affectionate critters who further enriched our visit. We had a grand time and hope to return someday. Muito obrigado a Barbara e Manuel!
What an amazing place. We could have spent our entire 4 nights (not nearly long enough) looking out at that vista. You feel as though you are on the edge of the earth...but it's a short drive into town, restaurants, and the market. Manuel is very kind and helpful and we had a wonderful time!
The view from the house is breathtaking. We arrived late at night thanks to SATA airline delays, and had a pleasant night listening to the waves breaking, but were completely stunned by the beautiful view we woke up to the next morning. As mentioned in previous reviews, the house is well kept with a stocked kitchen which we did not use as the restaurants in nearby Ribeira Grande are outstanding. Thankfully there is lots of walking/hiking to be done after all that eating. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and our wonderful hosts - Manuel, Barabara and our two new furry friends Fina and Scruffy and would recommend to all!
The bungalow is located on a wide site close to the ocean, there you have a fantastic view (sunset!). On our last day we could even see a whale swimming along the bay! From the Miradouro da Vigia das Baleias you have a stunning view over the estate and the surrounding.
The house is wellmentained and offers plenty of space for 4 persons. From the veranda you have a wonderful on the ocean and the cliffs. Far and wide just water and sea gulls! What a quiet and peaceful place.
You reach the house on a dusty road and at its end the funny little dogs are allready expecting you. The exceedingly friendly landlord and his lovable wife are very helpfull and provide a pleasant stay.
From the accomodation you can easily explore the isle with its treasures, for example Furnas or Caldeira Velha. We recommend the Oceans Edge for everybody who loves nature and would love to spend another holiday here!
We stayed here back in April and had a great time. Manuel was an absolute pleasure to deal with, he was very helpful with answering our questions and providing useful information as it was our first time there.
The property itself was very nice and well kept. Absolutely loved the location of the house as its off the grid away from any other houses, which provided a nice and quiet peaceful atmosphere, because of this you will need a car to get there but its totally worth it. Did I also mention that the views are absolutely incredible from the house? The pictures don't do justice!
Overall I was very satisfied with my stay here and felt that I got my moneys worth. I hope to be able to return here again one day.
Thanks again Manuel
It is a very impressive place for nature loving people. Everything was fine - except the weather. To much storm and rain. It was to could and wet, and there is no heating in the house. But Manuel is a very friendly, helpful guy, so it was okay for us. A problem was for us, that we didn't know, that the house has American electricity.
If you are staying here, so you have to go to Ribeirinha restaurant Ogatomia. It's excellent.
A promontory; East side small bay and cliffs, a Lighthouse and lookout point. West side large bay with views to city and numerous villages.
