HEATED /AC CLIFF SIDE HOME, VIEW OF MOSTEIROS VILLAGE & OCEAN

Sao Miguel Island House Rental Photos and Description

Family home with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6, overlooking Mosteiros

This villa is professionally managed by Quinta das Acacias.

Majestically positioned on the cliffs above the town of Mosteiros, nests this welcoming and peaceful getaway place. Imagine! You open the gate and follow the semi-curved paved driveway that leads to the house, breathing the beauty and scents of nature lined on either side. Hydrangeas, bird of paradise, hisbiscus, belladona lilies, camelias, wisteria and many more too numerous to mention. Enter the house and walk into a warm glow of space and light. Filtered through ceiling windows the sun shines into this home. Take your meals in the dining area surrounded by windows and ocean views. Start your morning with a lazy breakfast in the sun room just off your bedroom and watch, hear and smell the ocean on your door step. Finish your morning with a book in the comfort of a cushioned wicker chair or step onto the garden and bath yourself in our Azorian sun. It is your holiday, you deserve it!

Stress free holidays: Enjoy the flora of our property. Take advantage of our BBQ facilities and enjoy an evening meal in the moonlight. Dine 'el fresco' on our rustic lava table and chairs under the wisteria arbour overlooking the panoramic view of Mosteiros and ocean.

Casa Livet Dinamarca awaits your presence to serve you. Our aim is to give you an experience, a dream, a memory to take with you. We want you to lose yourself in this paradise. Sleep in, eat hardy and slow, nap and let yourself be nurtured by our clean and natural little corner of the world.

Make your reservation early to avoid disapointment!

Guestbook comments from the manager
This past week has been a lovely combination of hiking and exploring as many towns as possible. We´ve had quite the range of weather-hail, rain, fog, and the occasional but spectacular sunny days-one of our favorite days was reading by the fire while the hail pounded on the sunroof. We also loved watching the roaring waves crash on the coast and seeing the brave locals surfing on them. I can easily say that our favorite food was the sweetbread!´

We all can´t wait to come back in the summer and swim in the many natural pools!

Lovely house,

Amazing Views! Private retreat...

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here on a family trip and loved the setting of the property. This spacious home overlooks the town of Mosteiros. It is situated on the western part of the island making it easy to explore this side of Sao Miguel. We enjoyed the beautiful panoramic views of the ocean (+famous rock formations!) and village down below. The grounds are well kept with all sorts of different flowers in bloom. The best part was being able to kick back, relax on the large grounds, and take in the gorgeous sunset from our outdoor loungers / screened porch. We even heard some dophins at night / early morning! The listing description is completely accurate. Although there is new furniture in the common area, some of the decor and the bathrooms are a bit dated. The property manager, Bonita, always responded promptly to our questions and is very friendly. She provided information on where to eat, what to see, etc. There's a bakery with freshly baked bread/rolls, a small mini mart for groceries, and a couple of restaurants in town. We highly recommend this property to friends & relatives and certainly plan to return ourselves.

Stunning cliff side oasis!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures do not do this place justice! As soon as we turned into the driveway we were impressed with the amazing landscaping & awe inspiring views of the beautiful village of Mosteiros. Bonita was an amazing host and gave us great recommendations. We were hesitant at first to stay outside of Ponta Delgada but could not have been happier with our decision. A car is a must in Sao Miguel & we didn't mind driving....half the fun is getting lost & finding a new place to explore! Hard to find any cons in this place. A propane grill would have been nice (we used the outdoor fireplace instead for grilling). Other guests have left brochures, maps, etc which was helpful!

Prior to our trip, I had done research regarding restaurants, etc in Mosteiros and found little information. I hope our tips can help others in the future:
- Pizzeria Fantasia was our favorite restaurant. A true "mom and pop" shop, reservations are a must & its hard to find (Rua Moinhos 54, look for cement looking sign with graffiti like writing that says "pizzeria italian cucina"). The pizzas, pastas, and dessert were amazing. Everything was reasonably priced & the local wine was delicious. Bonita was nice enough to make us reservations the first night!!
- Gazcidla is a local watering hole & we enjoyed drinks here (did not try the restaurant but other guests seem to enjoy it)

Other favorite restaurants outside of Mosteiros:
- Restaurante Da Associacao Agricola (hard to find but worth it): delicious, melt in your mouth steaks, you know its good when the farmers are eating lunch there!
- Bar Aliança in Ponta Delgada: amazing steak and fries, does not look appealing on the outside but the dining area inside is quite nice & service was excellent
- 4 Platanos in Ponta Delgada (San Antonio): modern restaurant, great views, good menu

And our favorite experiences/memories of the island:
- Cha Gorreana Tea Factory: oldest tea plantation, go to the shop to enjoy free tea & the waffles with honey were amazing (1.50 euros!)
- Exploring Monte Palace, an abandoned hotel situated right on top of the mountain overlooking Sete Citades, at Mirador do Rei (amazing view)
- Drive the windy roads of Lagoa do Fogo & go all the way to the top in the clouds......Caldeira Velha (waterfall) is on the way up & a nice place to stop!
- Nordeste & Povoação were nice towns to explore

Bring medicine for motion sickness (winding roads), get a gps (there are no signs) and bring cash!!

Thanks again!!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the excellent description of your vacation. Good information that will help everyone who comes here.
Glad to hear you tried the BBQ grill with wood. There are no gas BBQ on the island unless a foreigner has bought them from other countries.
We hope you will return again for a longer stay. There is so much more to enjoy that you will need to come back . The normal with our guests has been 14 day stays.

Until your next visit,
Bonita

Gorgeous Setting

  • 5 of 5
We rented this beautiful and spacious house (Livet Dinamarca) for a month in the fall of 2012 and found it to be very clean, nicely equipped and well appointed. Property Managers, Bonita and Ed were very helpful and we enjoyed getting to know them.

The best features of this house are the stunning views and gorgeous estate-like grounds. The house sits directly above the ocean and overlooks Mosteiros. From the property we watched birds and fishing boats and saw many rainbows during our stay.

Mosteiros is a very small town with only a few restaurants and cafes, most of which were closed during our off-season stay. A car is certainly a necessity. Ponta Delgada is 30 minutes away and Ribeira Grande 45 minutes away where you can find major grocery stores and lots of restaurants. The food is simple and very good. Most menus have English translations. In the house guestbook we listed our favorite restaurants and activities.

We have traveled to many places and we were pleasantly surprised to discover the beauty of Sao Miguel. This small island has it all: stunning views, flowers everywhere, an amazing network of hiking trails, beautiful mountains and an abundance of peaceful green pastures. We felt like we had stepped back to a simpler time.

A highlight for us was being able to fly directly to Sao Miguel from Boston's Logan Airport in just 4.5 hours on SATA Airlines. We certainly recommend visiting Sao Miguel and staying at Livet Dinamarca. We hope to return one day.

Wonderful spring break

  • 5 of 5
This is a terrific spot in a quaint town on the beautiful island of Sao Miguel. The view is unforgettable - we could have justifiably spent our entire vacation relaxing while watching the waves role in. The house was immaculate and gorgeous, better than expected. Our hosts, Bonita and Ed, were quick to help with ideas and thoughts on the island. Bonita arranged our car rental, and Ed helped with a dinner reservation and directions. They lent us a cell phone to use for the week, which was reassuring as a safety net. We took advantage of the fireplace as the evenings were 14C and often windy. The storms we had for a few days couldn't dampen our spirits in this setting. The beach below is striking black sand with beautiful views along the coast and back up the cliffs. The distance to town was just far enough along a windy road that we drove to leave, maybe nearly 1km. We decided this was an advantage, as we couldn't hear sounds of the village over the waves. All in all a great stay in a house we hope to go back to soon.
