EVERYTHING YOU COULD WANT IN A HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Brilliant house. We wanted for nothing. Sergio and Maria are very helpful and friendly. They organised a car for us and picked us up from the airport. They also bought a cot and high chair especially for our little boy. On arrival we found a well stocked fridge with lots of local produce which was fab. The house is exactly as it looks on the pictures - spacious, very clean, comfortable and amazing views. Would thoroughly recommend it!

BEAUTIFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Sergio owns this house as well as Casa Do Canto, and our party rented both in April 2013. I'm partial to Casa Do Canto (homeaway #434428), but its true what the above says-the house is bright and airy, with floor to ceiling windows on two sides. There is also the fantastic view of the ocean, and of the two tiny dogs who were always wrestling next door. Plus, it has really beautiful gardens (although so does Casa do canto), and a croquet 'court' or whatever you call it.
I also want to add to what the above renter said-the owners really are fantastic. They will do as much or as little as you like. One evening Sergio brought out a nice bottle of Port, and another night brought the most fantastic sweet bread/doughnuts that his wife made. They were unbelievable, probably the best thing I had on the island. I said this in another review, but it really needs repeating.
Plus, Sergio gave us a deal on the houses to match what SATA was paying for accomodations because of the pilots strike, for three nights, and more importantly let us stay right up to the day when new renters were coming in.
If you have a large party, I definitely recommend either of these homes, or you can do like we did, and rent both. During the off season, getting a car and van, the price per day really is unbelievable.
I was also quite interested in the street signs-if you do some research you will find that early portuguese explorers were amongst the first to explore Canada. And you will see 'Canada" on many streets- it means 'dead end' or 'nothing there':)

MORE THAN MET OUR EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
Casa Criptomeria is a lovely place to stay - light, airy and surrounded by lovely gardens. The photographs on the site do not do it full justice. The house is well equipped and lovingly maintained. As a family of 5 we felt that we had plenty of space.

What really added to our whole stay were the owners - Sergio and Maria. They made every effort to make sure that we had a good experience. On several occasions they went way beyond the call of duty and were always friendly, helpful and generous. Maria would bake an Azorean delicacy for us, Sergio always ready to advise or lend a hand. We spotted 3 serious pastimes of Sergio's
- gardening : he loved to explain his garden and fresh fruit and veg was always available to us.
- croquet : Sergio has built his own croquet court in which some hotly contested matches take place with the local men. He was always ready to teach us and play with us.
- motor vehicles : he is an engineer. He has built his own buggy, and took us on a great ride round the nearby crater.
We really enjoyed the company of Sergio and Maria and their family, and thank them for their hospitality.

If you stay in the months November to April, Sergio gives you full use of the family car without any charge. This makes the whole package extremely good value. He also meets you at the airport and drops you back, which makes arrival easy and stress free.

The island is lovely. If you like to walk, explore, photograph in a beautiful environment, then this is the place for you. The island is one giant garden. We found plenty of mountain and crater walks. The craters of Sete Cidades and Lagoa do Fogo are stunning, and well worth a good long walk around. Nordeste is well worth exploring, with a stunning waterfall along the way. There are plenty of volcanic pools to bathe in - even heated waterfalls and a sea inlet that has waves come in cold and go out warm (nearby Ponta da Ferraria). Whale watching costs about 50 euros a person - we saw plenty of dolphin and a fin whale. We had 3 days scuba diving - we can recommend Azores Sub in Vila Franca, who were very attentive and professional.

Sao Miguel is very green and fertile. In order to be so green sometimes it has to rain! We had quite mixed weather, but when the bad came it usually passed through pretty quickly. It is an ideal place for those who enjoy natural beauty and the outdoor lifestyle.

We highly recommend Casa Criptomeria and will definitely return ourselves.

EIN PARADIS DER RUHE UND ENTSPANUNNG

  • 5 of 5
Liebe Maria und Sergio,
Danke schön für den Flughafentransfer, die Lebensmittel inklusiver Flasche Wein und warmen Kuchen von der lieben Maria, am Ankunftstag. Danke für den Tag, an dem Sergio uns die märchenhaftschöne Caldeira Sete Cidades, auf der abenteuerreichen Special Tour mit seinem Buggy ausführlich präsentiert hat. Auch für den sehr wohltuenden, warmen Thermalbad in der Ferraria. Vielen Dank für den frischen Salat und Kräuter aus Euren schönen Garten und für das sehr leckere selbst gebackene Brot zum Ostern sowie andere azorianische Spezialitäten von Maria. Danke auch für die portugiesisch -Sprachkurse von Sergio. Wir werden das alles hier sehr vermissen. Die Wärme, Ruhe und Geborgenheit des Cryptomeria Hauses. Den wundervollen Farbwechsel von den Ozean und Himmel, die vielen Grüntöne und Blütenfarben der Insel, den täglichen Orangenblütenduft aus Eurem Garten, die Schönheit von Sete Cidades, Furnas mit Fumarolen und Terra Nostra Park, Calderia Velha, das whale watching-Erlebnis die vielen warmen Thermalbäder, die gesunden und schmackhaften regionalen Nahrungsmittel und nicht zu vergessen Euren lieben, treuen und sehr intelligenten Hund Lord, der besser als manches Mensch erzogen ist.
Tipp für die nächsten Hausbewohner: Lord liebt Presunto, er konnte aber auch wehrend wir gegessen haben ruhig und lange warten. Er folgt ausgezeichnet den Befehlen.
Die malerische, grüne Insel Sao Miguel hat mehr zu bieten als man glaubt. Zahlreche Parks, Erholung, Entspannung, warme Badequellen, gute Cafes und Restaurants, Whale-Watching-Erlebnis.

WUNDERBARER URLAUB

  • 5 of 5
Es waren 2 wunderschöne Wochen im August hier. Die Insel hat uns mit ihrer abwechslungsreichen grünen Landschaft, den Seen, Bergen und den Stränden sehr gut gefallen. Insgesamt haben wir Glück gehabt mit dem Wetter – kein einziger Regentag. Viele freundliche Leute haben wir angetroffen. Candelaria ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt, um die Insel zu erkunden.
In Casa Criptoméria haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus ist gepflegt und sehr gemütlich, bietet viel Platz sowie jeglichen Komfort. Unser Lieblingsplatz war die Veranda, wo wir die Ruhe mit Blick auf das Meer sehr genossen haben. Es war schön, nach einem erlebnisreichen Tag noch mal in den Pool zu gehen.
Die Vermieter, die nebenan wohnen, haben wir als sehr freundlich und entgegenkommend erlebt. Es gab nette Gespräche und sie waren auch sonst jederzeit ansprechbar. Wir durften uns mit Obst und Gemüse aus dem Garten versorgen, was wir auch gerne genutzt haben. Zwischendurch wurden wir mit Selbstgebackenem verwöhnt.
Wir haben bei ihnen auch das Auto gemietet. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis war gut. Sergio hat uns vom Flughafen abgeholt und hinterher wieder dorthin gebracht.
Wir können einen Besuch in der Casa Criptoméria uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

FANTASTISCHE ACCOMODATIE

  • 5 of 5
Heel fijn huis op een prachtig eiland. Alles heel schoon en netjes. Sergio en Maria zijn zeer gastvrij en laten graag de mooiste plekjes zien. Zij komen zelf van Sao Miguel en maken je vakantie tot een unieke belevenis. We werden uitgenodigd voor een buggytour en werden getrakteerd op door Maria zelfgemaakte malasadas. Jammer dat ons verblijf er bijna op zit maar we zouden graag nog een keer terugkeren. Het is echt een uniek adres om vakantie te vieren.
