Or maybe you’ll prefer to sleep in, dipped in the silence and comfort of your darkened room, protected from the blaze of the sun by shutters.

Rest calmly, knowing that the double grazed windows inserted in walls with exterior insulation, using high-end materials, provides for your well-being.

Take advantage of your new home to rest and recharge before another daily expedition discovering this easily reachable and wonderful triangle of Azorean islands, Faial, Pico, and s. Jorge.

Let Repouso do Milhafre be your home this holiday!

About Zelda Melo

Since 2007, we have been renting our own private vacation home and this experience and knowledge has made us aware of our guest’s needs and expectations. Our aim is to provide a quality vacation accommodation, personal, friendly service and useful informative options for all of our guests who choose to rent their vacation home through us.

We believe that staying at a private vacation home is a unique way of truly discovering everything that the Island of Faial has to offer. From the history, culture, the arts, to the gastronomy of its people.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A real highlight of the trip was seeing Capelinhos. My family and I thought that was amazing and beautiful. I thought the views from there were spectacular. We did not eat in many restaurants but we did love our lunch at the Casa Teahouse. Very nice owners and a lovely place.

The whole island is so beautiful that you have special views throughout the whole island. If you have a car driving around the island is very doable and worth it for the incredible sights. The gigantic rows of hydrangeas everywhere are breathtaking!

Horta is such a picturesque town. It is very easy to walk wherever you need to go, very friendly and helpful people. It is really safe with a lovely relaxed feel. It also has a very cosmopolitan feel with people from all over the world visiting the area. Really a bit of paradise in the middle of the Atlantic.

Love it and can't wait to return.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we made the reservations to stay at Repouso do Milhafre, Zelda was a great help in making plans for our family reunion on Faial to celebrate the 100 year that my Grandmother immigrated to the United States. Zelda answered all my questions quickly and set up the most amazing taxi tour of the island with Victor Goulart. Thanks to Victor we were able to find the property where my Grandmother was born. Zelda was also extremely helpful setting up taxis for all of my family when they arrived and departed the island plus an amazing taxi tour on Pico.

The apartment is modern, clean and exceeded all of our expectations. The furniture is very comfortable and the apartment is equipped with everything we needed. The views of Pico from every room was a bonus along with the close proximity of the grocery store.

My daughter and family were allowed to check in early and when our departure flight was delayed, we were allowed to stay at the apartment even though the owners were waiting to clean the apartment. Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality.

I highly recommend the Repouso do Milhafre Apartment. Everyone (Zelda, Victor and the owners) went out of their way to make our stay an amazing adventure. Thank you to all.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words about Repouso do Milhafre and our service. As our hostess Zelda has a large experience organizing stays in Faial, her knowledge and contacts around the island allow her to provide a service that goes beyond the simple lodging arrangements. It was our pleasure that once again our clients were happy with it and we hope that her cooperation continues to be useful and appreciated. We do what we can to make our guest’s stay as pleasant as possible, especially on arrival and departure days, minimizing luggage carrying times. That is why, whenever we need to clean the house for the next guests, we try to find an accommodating solution for all, such as storing the luggage as long as possible. We treasured the care you had with the house, which allowed us to prepare it quickly to the next clients. It was our great pleasure to have you here and we hope to see soon again. All the best from the owners, Lurdes and António.

Perfect house- loud street

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a scuba focused trip to the Azores. The house is clean and modern with an amazing view of Pico. The kitchen is well equipped and we hosted 13 people easily for a cook out. The outdoor space is perfect and allowed us to rinse and dry dive gear safely in the locked courtyard. Having the grocery store around the corner was fantastic- it is open from 8-9 daily and has all you need. We had a rental van to explore the island and shuttle the group and gear to the dock. It is a 10 minute walk downhill to the main street, a moderate uphill to get back. Zelda is responsive and quick to answer emails or calls. I requested fans for the bedrooms and had them the next day.

The downside is noise. The house sits right on the street, and due to very warm weather and no air conditioning we had all the windows open at night. The popularity of scooters and motorcycles means loud vehicles pass your bedroom window randomly at all hours. I slept with earplugs every night and was ok, but some others in the group suffered with the noise. So this is a fantastic house in a somewhat unfortunate location. The traffic and noise from traffic is not constant- but a loud one comes by often enough to be annoying. We hit a warm spell and needed the windows open- if the windows were closed it would have been fine.

I do recommend the house, but be prepared.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review and insight! We were delighted that you took advantage of our fabulous outdoor space and that you found our location most convenient for shopping, access to the marina and in transporting the group to and from your diving centres. Having these conveniences in the city centre tends to bring along a little noise. You were great guests, you are welcome back anytime. Zelda, Antonio & Lurdes

Lovely, well kept vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Repouso do Milhafre. The place is spotless, and very well maintained. Beautiful views of Pico and the convenience of a grocery store a minutes walk away are hard to beat. Zelda was a great host and was very quick to respond to any questions we had. She also had lots of great suggestions for making the most of our holiday. We loved the town of Horta and the island of Faial!

Repouso do Milhafre - Horta

  • 5 of 5

The Repouso do Milhafre guesthouse is a very good place for a weekend hide away in Faial island. I was really happy to be able to accomodate my friends over a couple of days while visiting me on the island. They were really happy with the house and they had a great time. It has plenty of room for 7 people. Nice dinning area and lots of bathrooms.

Perfect equipped apartment with a great view

  • 5 of 5

The very well equipped, clean and spacious apartment is situated on a hill above Horta but in walking distance to the harbour (1 km).

Behind the appartment (not visible) is a supermarket, so you do not need a car to stock up on food. From almost all rooms you have got a perfect view on the harbour and Pico. Very functional wifi and even a first-aid kit in the cupboard!

The owners live nearby and are very friendly.

Zelda, the property manager welcomed us with great kindness and has a lot of information of everything about the island. We would defintiely stay here again.

A pity that we have had only five days here.

Vielen Dank für die sehr schöne Unterkunft.

Repouso do Milhafre is placed on a prime residential area, middle slope of the amazing Amphitheater that is Horta’s city, and turned to the one bay in Azores that belong to The Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club.

From Repouso do Milhafre, you can depart on a walk around the city, visiting monuments, museums, commercial areas, restaurants or Peter Café, famous by its gin & tonic and by its museum, which holds one of the best scrimshaw art collections. When visiting the marina, the second with more international traffic in Europe and the fourth in the world, you’ll be able to find its walls and pavements filled with colorful paintings and a boarding dock for expeditions of whale watching or scuba diving with the sharks.

And all this within a 1000m radius from your home!

If you are willing to venture yourself further, on foot or by car, you must pay a visit at the Botanic Gardens, the Pedro Miguel lagoons (ideal for bird watching), the Caldeira and the Capelinhos Volcano, with its unique scenery of dark deserted sands trapped between the powerful green of the island and the deep blue of the Ocean.

But you shouldn’t feel trapped on Faial. By dawn, chose to journey on the ferry to Pico or S. Jorge, for another day full of adventure, emotions and discoveries. And by the time you return at twilight, appreciate the comfort and privacy of your new home.

Be our guest. We are waiting for you in Horta city, Faial Island, Azores!
