Excellent location and stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely and clean. The owner was helpful and available to answer questions during our stay. A walk to the natural pools down the road was a perfect way to end each day.

rustikales Wohnen

  • 4 of 5

gute Lage, nah zum "Strand" (natürliche Becken), mit schöner Terasse,

relativ dunkel, schön für Liebhaber des Rustikalen (alte Möbel, einfaches Bad, einfache Küche)

Owner's Response: Alexandra, Já podamos a trepadeira que estava a a tapar a janela da cozinha e da casa de banho, agradeço o seu comentário. A cozinha é simples mas todos os electrodomésticos são novos, é muito funcional. Esta casa sempre foi uma casa de férias tipicamente de campo, não é uma casa típica de "cidade".

Kim and Crosby, Oregon

  • 3 of 5

This house was very nice, however, it was also quite dark and cold. The only source of heat is a wood burning fireplace, which we actually loved, but may be a bit difficult for others.

It is in a good location. We loved the pools nearby and also Pedro's Restaurant within walking distance.

The owner was kind and helpful.

Owner's Response: Obrigada pelo seu comentário, para os meses mais frios já temos um aquecimento a óleo para o quarto, a lareira é grande e funciona muito bem.

Hurricane Alex

  • 5 of 5

Due to Hurricane Alex hitting the Azores on 17/18 January and the grounding of flights from Pico to Teirceira Island we missed the first day of our 3 day stay in Biscuits with Isabel

She very kindly agreed to cancel the fee for the 18 th Jan and advised contacting you for online reimbursement

Your attention is appreciate your attention

Ideal para relaxar/Ideal for relaxing...

  • 5 of 5

Uma casa linda. Ideal para relaxar. Muito bem decorada e de uma forma simples... da maneira que gostamos porque a vida é simples, basta querer. Com condições exemplares até nos pequenos pormenores que nos dá um ambiente aconchegado, ou melhor, sentimos em casa. Situada numa freguesia (Biscoitos) idílica onde se sente o mar "violento" do norte mas ao mesmo tempo ... a paz de estar "longe de tudo". Esta casa defende bem o conceito de "HomeAway" porque sentimos em casa apesar estar longe. Recomendamos vivamente!

Michael Godinho e Helga Estrela.

A wonderful house. A great place to sit back and relax. Very well decorated in a simple way ... just the way we like it because life is simple, all you got todo is try. A house with great conditions even in the smallest aspects that gave us a cozy atmosphere, in other words, we felt like we were at home. Located in the picturesque parish of Biscoitos where you can "feel" the strength of the Atlantic Ocean but at the same time the peaceful surrounding giving you the sensation that you are far away from everything. This house definetly honors the concept (title) "HomeAway" because you do feel at home even though you are away. We vividly recommend this house!
