Guestbook comments from the manager
The Ocean Cottage stands on a black beach, the sounds of waves roiling up against a sturdy coast all night. corey shearwaters caw late night, and you wish you were one of them, riding the wind. It's so wild. All of it, seen, from the rooftop terrace, below a cozy room, wifi, the best bacon you've ever tasted bought from the quickstop atop the ridge. And the smell of the Atlantic, wafting in, on smooth tropic breezes. I don't know if life can get any better. I still dream of the place. And I want to go back again. Again and again."

VERY GOOD OPTION FOR FAMILY STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed in this house for 3 days in May 2014. The description was absolutely correct and we enjoyed the house very much. It was clean, comfort and ready-for-use by the arrival. I used car navigation to reach it and the coordinates are ok. The owners are nice people and provide an overview tour for us explaining everything we need. It is really close to the beach and our daughter liked it. As for restaurants we would recommend to try shrimps at Bela Vista, just on the way to Horta.
Hope to return on Faial again!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind words and reply to your stay we are glad you and your family had the chance to stay at our cottage and enjoy the many fine features of our island Faial. I hope you will stay longer on your next visit to see the things you didn't have a chance to see on your first visit, such as the many hiking trails along the coast and inland, whale watching and enjoy the many festivals throughout the year that happen in all our villages on Faial. It was great you got a chance to visit Pico witch is just a short ferry ride from Faial and being able to take your own car gives you a chance to see the many other sites in the Azores. Hope to see you again on your next visit to Faial.
Yours truly
Lawrence and Zelda, Owners Os Salgueiros

LITTLE HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Now as we came back to our noisy Moscow, it has been great to enjoy ocean, sounds of seaguls and salty taste of the air.

The place is a pure heaven. The house it very cozy, clean. It has everything for being comfortable. Kitchen is equiped with everything you need for cooking. BBQ on the terrace was great!

It takes just one step to reach the ocean. Five minutes and you are on the beach! We enjoyed fishing as well!

Thanks to our hosts for a plate of strawberries and taking care of us during our stay. We would definitely recommend this house to our close friends!

Kind regards to Zelda & Lawrence from Fikrat & Alexandra from Moscow.

This April when you were here was a beautiful time of year in Fajá, when the Cory Shearwater birds arrive to announce Spring is Here!

We saw it in your eyes when you arrived that you needed to be here! And on your departure day, with your gratitude and appreciation you shared with us, reminded us of the reasons why we wanted share Os Salgueiros Cottage with other travelers since 2007.

COIN DE PARADIS

  • 5 of 5
Une maison très agréable à vivre, avec une vue magnifique depuis la terrasse et un emplacement idéal à quelques mètres d'une très belle plage de sable noir.
En plus, on peut partir à pied de la maison pour de remarquables balades.
Et puis, il y a la gentillesse, la serviabilité et tous les bons conseils de Zelda, la propriétaire. Ce fut parfait !

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We had a truly wonderful stay at this villa by the sea. Before we arrived we were worried that our 14 year old and 9 year old children would get bored without any organised activities or other children to play with, but there was plenty to do, including visiting the volcanoes, boat trips, swimming in the warm sea and collecting driftwood for the barbecue. The local beach was too rough for our daughter but our son loved cruising the waves. The views are stunning and the island is beautiful - nowhere is very far to get to and we loved the wildflowers and hydrangeas everywhere. It is very unspoilt - we spent the whole time marvelling at the fact that we saw very few other English people anywhere!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments on our cottage, Os Salgueiros!
I am delighted that you and your family had a wonderful stay at our cottage. And I am so glad that your family got to experience something totally different than what they are used to! LIVING OUTSIDE THE BOX!
So pleased that you had this region ALL TO YOURSELVES! Without the crowds of the tourists! ...not even in July and August FANTASTIC!
I also find getting around the Island easy, and worry-free; there is only one traffic light! NO TRAFFIC! With a sense of freedom.
Nice to hear that your active teenagers found this region intriguing and they had lots of interesting things to do. Tryston……we are looking into getting a boogie board and fishing rods for our guests to catch their own lunch! Lydia, thank you for your art!
It was my pleasure to arrange your transport, whale watching, boat tour, and your special shopping lol!
My goal was to share Os Salguieros cottage with your family and to help you experience that ULTIMATE FAMILY VACATION! On the Island of Faial.
We welcome you to return anytime! our gate on Rua do Porto is always open for your family!

EXCELLENT OCEANFRONT LOCATION WITH GREAT VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We had stayed in Zelda´s cottage in February. Driving on the road to the cottage there were many old stone houses and ruins. The cottage in Praia do Norte, was in a very peaceful location next to the village. It had everything we needed to relax after a day of touring the island. We woke up to crashing waves against the rocks and the beach (5 minute walk). Walking through the old farm roads near the cottage was a great way to start our mornings. We took time every day just enjoying the plants and the mountain cliffs above us.

On one of our strolls in the old road, we met a farm woman walking her few cows down to another pasture. We felt we were back in time. Occasionally, you would meet the farmers moving their herds along the main roads to other pastures. The village of Fajã was very quiet and occasionally you came across a farmer and his wife working a plot of land by hand. You felt you were definitely in the old world of Europe.

The Bela Vista Café-Snack bar near Capelo was one of the best restaurants. The food was very regional and excellent price. I would highly recommend eating here at least once on your way to Horta from the cottage. The other restaurant we enjoyed immensely was Peter´s Café in Horta. They have an excellent menu with great prices,a very friendly owner and home cooking; service was 5 stars.

This cottage is highly recommended for a couple for a romantic getaway or small family. We would like to return again for a longer stay. Four days is not enough to see Faial. I would recommend a minimum of 7 days for Faial and then another 7 days to see Pico and Graciosa (depending on the hikes available).
Thank you, Zelda for your hospitality. Keep up the great work. We will definitely be back soon.
