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.

Everything as advertised and the views are amazing. Great location near groceries.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 adults and 3 small children stayed here for 6 nights. The apartment is very clean and kept. The amenities are as promised. The apartment shows true to the pictures listed on the website. The views were spectacular. Freezer had an ice maker!!! Horta can get hot but the apartment has modern windows and doors allowing for shade and for a nice breeze with screened windows. Zelda was a great help in orienting us to the island and the owner who lives nearby brought us fresh towels. Proximity to groceries is maybe 50 steps, a wonderful perk. 5 stars all around!

The house was exactly as shown and described on the HomeAway page. The place was super clean!

  • 5 of 5

Zelda's house was perfect. It was in a great location, within a brisk walk of the Horta marina, and downtown shops and restaurants. It had a breathtaking view of Pico island, the ocean, and Horta port.

Zelda greeted us at the house. We had been communicating on a regular, so it was great to finally meet gere and be there. The house was large and super clean. Everything our group of three needed was there. Plenty of bathroom towels and kitchen linens were provided. Every bedroom had a beautiful view, as did the kitchen, dining room and livibg room. Even one of the bathrooms had a great view! Zelda went over any details we might need to know. She also sat down with us ro go over our planned activities and helped us set up a tour around Fayal island the next day and a Pico island tour the say after that. She called and arranged everything with her great contacts right then and there. She also gave us recommendations on restaurants.

Zelda was very welcoming and made us feel like she was there to make our trip the best, which she did!

The kitchen was modern, with the appliances needed to make our stay comfortable. It had a washer and dryer, so convenient for us. The beds were comfortable too!

We could lavish praise on Zelda and the property on and on. The bottom line is that out of four vacation rentals on our 3-week trip in Europe, , this was by far the best one that we had. We want to return as soon ad possible!

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!
