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.

Eduino and Bonita Sousa purchased this cottage in 2006

Wir kommen wieder

  • Submitted: Aug 12, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
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

As I stated in the guest book. "When the gates opened and we saw the beautiful scene before us we were overwhelmed by the beauty of it all." The gardens were thoughtfully pleasing to the eye and beckoned to be strolled through. The entire stay was perfect, quiet and relaxing. I love everything about this lovely place as well as all of the Acores Islands. I truly felt home in my heart. I will return someday soon, so my children may share my joy and pride in our Azorean ancestry.

Sincerely,
David & Kathleen Stark, Jackson California

Vilpitön Ystävällisyys

  • Submitted: Dec 2, 2012
  • Stayed: Nov 2012
Vietimme yhden mieleenpainuvimmista lomistamme Azoreilla. Saari, sen luonto ja asukkaat, pääsivät yllättämään meidät päivittäin positiivisesti. Isäntäväen ja asukkaiden vilpitön ystävällisyys ja avuliaisuus sekä puutarhan kauneus ja rauhallisuus saanevat meidät palaamaan tänne vielä uudestaan ja suosittelemaan paikkaa varauksetta. Tässä muutamia vinkkejä paikan päälle matkustaville.

Vuokra-auto on lähes ehdoton. Bussit, taksit ja valmismatkat toimivat, mutta parin päivän totuttelun jälkeen liikenteessä pysyy ihan hyvin mukana. Ruokailu ulkona on edullista ja Bonita suosittelemissa ruokapaikoissa kannattaa käydä. Vaellusreitit löytyvät juuri niistä paikoista mihin ne on karttaan merkitty, mutta niistä osa on suljettu aika-ajoin. Ponta Delgadan rantakadun varrelta olevasta turisti-infosta saat kartat avoinna olevista reiteistä. Infosta saat osoitteen paikkaan josta voit ostaa kalastusluvan laguuneihin ja joihinkin jokiin, muista ottaa passi luvan ostoon mukaan. Luvan hintaan homma ei kaadu, sillä 10 vrk lupa oli hinnaltaan 1,03 €. Sisämaan kalastuksesta ja vaelluksesta kiinnostuneille voin antaa lisävastauksia enemmänkin, kun pyydätte Bonitalta e-mailini.

Saaren opasteet kyliin, vaellusreiteille ja kohteisiin ovat vähän niin ja näin, mutta kysyvä ei tieltä eksy. Me eksyimme noin viisi kertaa päivässä ja löysimme itsemme milloin lehmän lypsypaikoilta tai ajamassa takaisin päin tulosuuntaan - ei kannata hermostua - nähtävää riittää joka suunnassa.

Katsottavista kohteista jokaiselle muodostuu varmasti omat suosikkinsa, mutta meille luontoihmisinä parasta antia tarjosivat Sete Citades, Caldeira Velha, Terra Nostra, Correanan teeviljelmä, Lagoa da Fogo ja ehdoton suosikkimme oli Furnas. Kylistä meidän ykköseksemme nousi Povoacao ja siellä ravintola Jardim.

Jottei pettymyksiä tule, niin tulee muistaa, ettei Azorit ole sään puolesta mikään auringonottokohde, mutta ulkoilijalle se on just hyvä. Ravintoloihin sinua ei kiskota sisään, eikä kaulallasi todellakaan roiku kiikareita, objektiivejä, t-paitoja, rantapyyhkeitä tai aurinkolaseja sadan metrin kaupunkikävelyn jälkeen...

Emotional experience

For me, during my brief stay here, it was a spiritual and emotional experience of nature. Ed and Bonita, you have a stress-free and tranquil environment that feeds one´s soul. This is a place that I find peaceful and able to escape from life´s problems. Hearing the songs of the birds and church bells, smelling the sweet scents of flora; this combination describes ´paradise´.

We will return and recommend you to our friends. Thank you, Ed and Bonita for providing and sharing your paradise for us! Wish you the best that life can bring to you in happiness and health for many more years!|

We wil never foget the ringing of the church bells, the parrots and the cat... We are sure to see you again. Thank you very much for a pleasant stay.

Os 5 Magnificos
Que bela quinta
Onde viemos para
Na linda ilha de S. Miguel
Com paisagems de encantar
Bons momentos passamos
Mas e pena o temps de pressa passar
Nao prometemos para o ano ca estarmos
Mas quem sabe nao iremos nos encontrar
Pois nao sabemos o dia de amanha
Mas com certeza um sitio a voltar!

Para a quinta melhorar vamos recomendar
Para este sitio tao agradavel
Uma piscina para mergulhar
Que iria tornar um local mais amavel

Contra vontade nossa temos que volta
Para nossa terra temos que partir
Adeus Sao Miguel
Adues, temos que nos depedir
