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
Aufenthalt 01.05.2013 bis 15.05.2013
Die Anreise verlief ohne Probleme und der eher kleine Flughafen auf Sao Miguel ist im Vergleich zu Düsseldorf oder Frankfurt schon an sich eine Erholung.
Natürlich ist das Wetter immer ein großes Thema. Die 16° in Deutschland waren eine Herausforderung – kalt, windig und eklig.
Die 16° bis 19° auf der Insel waren gefühlt sehr viel angenehmer und wärmer.
Natürlich ist der Garten von Eduino ein Traum. Viel Arbeit steckt darin. Umso erstaunlicher, dass man als Tourist, Fremder, diesen nutzen darf. Die Wiese darf man betreten, die Kräuter nutzen. Damit weniger ein steriles Ausstellungsstück denn ein Nutzgarten mit „Schlossanmutung“.
Gastfreundschaft wird sehr großgeschrieben. Sofern Bedarf besteht erhält man alle erdenklichen Tipps für Trips auch Apotheken und Ärzte stehen auf dem Programm. Nicht, dass wir das eingeplant hätten.
Die Insel ist sehr vielfältig. Für Geologen sehr interessant. Die Strände sind niemals eintönig. Steil, sandig, steinig, klein, groß etc.
Tourismus ist zwar ein Einnahmequelle, was natürlich legitim ist, aber man wird niemals belästigt“. Ich weiß nicht, wie man es anders sage soll. Es gibt die Annehmlichkeiten, die ein Tourist und auch wir erwarten - aber niemals aufdringlich. Einfach ein Traum! Wir kommen wieder.
With kind regards,
Friederike and Christoph, Germany, May 2013
