The BEST home away from home.

  • 5 of 5
We have rented apartments or villas in many places around the world. Maria's home by the sea has the loveliest view of all. And Maria is the best home owner we have known.

The duplex villa is birght, open and airy and has everything you need for a home away from home. The view of the sea and sunsets from the terrace are incredible. The location is convenient to shopping, buses and town activities. We were delighted to experience two days of a town festival and also took in the events of an Island election. (The candidates all came by the house and one,the eventual winner, even came up on the terrace for a picture that he said would be posted on his Facebook page!) We appreciated the proximity to one of the prettiest place on the island, Cete Cidades, where we did a number of really extraordinary hikes. (go throught TUNNEL but bring a headlamp!)

But the best part of the whole Azores experience was getting to know Maria. She was helpful beyond all expectations, and FUN. Often she lefts little gifts of figs or vegetables from her garden at the back door. She answered questions, made valuable suggestions and took a real interest in the happiness of our stay. We've never met anyone quite like her. To be fair, the people of Mosteiros and the Azorians in general were delightful, but Maria topped them all.

We travelled around the island a good bit, but never saw anywhere we thought could compare to our little villa by the sea.

Wonderful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5
Although we had only a week on Sao Miguel, we quickly felt at home in this lovely holiday house. Maria provided us with the warmest hospitality imaginable, including a delicious welcome package that was highly appreciated after a late arrival. We enjoyed playing cards with her in the evening and benefited from a thorough explanation of where to find what in Mosteiros. The house provided all necessary amenities and we were particularly fond of sitting on the patio, taking in all facets of village life, activities in the small fishing harbour, and the wonderful sunsets. Its location makes this house a great starting point for strolls to the sandy beach, the rock pools, or a short drive up to the magical scenery at Sete Cidades.

Great property, Magnificent views, Wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5
Read the other reviews for this rental and you will find all the great things that I could say about it. What I want to point out is Maria’s secret weapon. Maria was called away to Lisbon just before we arrived, so she left her friend Di to be her stand-in. What a delightful person to deal with. She was very helpful with anything we asked of her. Because she seemed to be related to many of the people in Mosteiros, we immediately had family there. I felt that we had made lifelong friends with Di and her husband after only a few days. All of the people in Mosteiros were friendly and a cheerful. “Bom Dia” was exchanged with most as they walked past our front patio daily. The front patio was a great place to sit in the morning with that first cup of coffee and in the evening with a glass of wine. The nitty gritty parts: The accommodations were suburb. The location was fantastic. The island is a scenic wonder. The people are wonderful. Even the small dogs running around were entertaining to watch. If you go to the Fabrica Ceramica in Ribeira Grande early in your visit, you may be able to have some custom tiles made up to take home with you. Prices are reasonable and they try to please. While there, a trip to the Alabote Restaurante down by the ocean is well worth it. The food is great, the view pleasant and the staff is friendly and efficient. While there is much to see on Sao Miguel, we spent more time each day back at our haven by the sea, the Casas do Porto. We needed our “unwind time” each day to enjoy the sea and sunsets. We did meet Maria before we left and she was as gracious as the other reviewers have indicated. I really can’t imagine a more enjoyable two weeks than we experienced and want to thank Maria and Di for a memorable vacation.

Just as described in the advert and Maria is great

  • 5 of 5
The accomodation is as described and had all the facilities necessary for our party of 4 to enjoy our 2 week holiday. Maria and her husband were the best of hosts and gave unstintingly of their time and knowledge of the island to help us make the most of our stay. The location had excellent views over the bay and waching the local's fishing and scrambling over the volcanic rock seashore vied with the beautiful sunsets as our favourite evening activity. We were there late in the season and the capricious Storm Nadine spent an unusually long time in the Azores area thus giving us very mixed weather including a couple of days of very high winds and heavy rain. We hired a car and drove extensively across the island which has some beautiful views and interesting places to visit such as the volcanic vents and lakes set in ancient volcanic coldera. Due to an unfortunate incident my wife had to have an emergency visit to the Hospital at Ponta Delgada where she received exceptional treatment culminating in a minor operation and an overnight stay. Both of us want to go on record to say how appreciative we are of both the medical treatment and the pleasant, helpful and highly skilled staff. All in all we had an interesting and varied holiday with our friends but have to say that Mosteiros is a very quiet place and if you are looking for lively night life rather than a place to chill and relax this is not the place for you.

THREE REASONS TO STAY…..

  • 5 of 5
Firstly this is probably the best location in the whole of Sao Miguel. The house is right by the sea, looking across the harbour and bay to Mosteiros’ famous rocks offshore. A walk of about 150 metres takes you to the local mini-market, while the village boasts two restaurants and a couple of cafes, all within easy walking distance. If you want a swim, the beach is a half mile stroll in one direction while the sea pools are the same distance in the opposite direction. For children there is a tiny beach and safe sea pool right opposite.

Secondly, the house is both immaculately clean and well equipped. Don’t be deceived by the photographs. Inside there is a spacious lounge with full height window and double glass door. overlooking the sea; large double bedroom, and smaller room with two single beds, a bathroom with shower on each floor (with endless hot water) and an adequate and well equipped kitchen. For outside dining there is a table and four chairs out at the front where you can watch the sunset, whilst at the back is another table and chairs together with two sun beds backing on to a large private garden with lawns and flower beds. Incidentally there is also a barbecue at the rear.

Thirdly, and most importantly is the welcome and the hospitality of the owner. Maria is on hand whenever you need her, be it for advice on places to visit or assistance in organizing activities. Maria was so kind and friendly to us, and her English made up for our total lack of Portuguese. Throughout our stay little gifts of fruit and vegetables kept appearing at our door.

There is just one reason not to stay. If the kind of holiday you like is the type you get in Blackpool, Benidorm or Bodrum then Mosteiros is not for you. A glass of wine with your neighbours and passing the time of day with the passers by is about as busy as the nightlife gets in the village and nobody ever tries to sell you anything on Sao Miguel!

Delightful accommodation close to the sea

  • 5 of 5
4 of us had an excellent few days here in July 2012. The balcony has a lovely view and is great for relaxing and watching the sea, the fishing boats and the sunsets over the sea. The accommodation is pleasant and there is a separate bathroom for each of the 2 bedrooms. A mini-market for food is very convenient only few minutes walk away.
Mosteiros has a couple of sandy beaches, but it is black. There are also a few large rockpools for swimming. The hot pool a few miles to the south at Ferraria is worth a visit for a hot water swim in the sea - a unique occurrence, which is not mentioned in most guide books.
To explore the island a car is nearly essential. The famous large crater of Sete Cidades is only a few miles away and a must for a visit. There are several good picnic spots on both the blue and green lake shores. Several walks are possible, but a complete circuit of the crater rim is rather too long for most people. There is an unsurfaced road/track along the north and east side of the crater rim, which is drivable, but is not recommended unless you have a high clearance car - small drainage trenches have been dug across the road and most cars will bottom out on some of them ! Near the SE side of the main crater there is a good circular walk around 2 lakes starting from the car park on the main road near lake Canario.
Other recommended trips include Lake Fogo with a pleasant walk down to the lake for a picnic; Lake Furnas, where the locals cook stews below the ground near the sulphurous fumeroles; Formosa or Gorreana tea plantations -- which are the only ones in Europe; the pottery at Lagoa on the south coast and of course a whale and dophin watching boat trip from Ponta Delgada- we can recommend Futurismo, which has 3 types of boat and als has spotters on the mainland.
New dual carrigeways have recenlty been opened on San Miguel, so it is now possible to reach the NE corner of the island in about 3/4 hr from Ponta Delgada, which is about 3/4hr from Mosteiros.
The house owner Maria speaks good English and is very helpful.
We highly recommend the house for a holiday.
