Guestbook comments from the manager

Wir haben uns im Casa Azalea sehr wohl gefühlt. Vor allem die Lage direkt am Meer mit Blick auf den kleinen Fischerhafen haben wir sehr genossen. Die Unterkunft ist sehr geräumig und gemütlich mit angenehmer Atmosphäre. Für zwei Personen ideal. Für vier Personen würden wir das Casa Azalea nur bedingt empfehlen, da zwei Betten im OG quasi nur durch einen Vorhang zum Hauptwohnraum unten abgetrennt sind. Man sollte auch wissen, dass sich eine gewisse Feuchtigkeit auf der Terrasse niederschlägt je nach Wetter. Wenn Sturm ist, beschlagen die Fenster nach ein paar Stunden hartnäckig mit Salzdampf vom Meer. Störte uns jedoch nicht.

Bonita & Ed haben uns sehr herzlich empfangen. Es war schön die beiden kennenzulernen und sich mit ihnen zu unterhalten. Sehr sympathisch und hilfsbereit. Ed hat uns sogar vom Flughafen abgeholt.Die ganze Abwicklung war sehr professionell.

Mosteiros ist ein idyllischer, ruhiger Ort. Es gibt zwar wenige Restaurants. Wir haben dennoch zwei gefunden mit sehr herrlichem Ausblick und leckeren, frischen Fischgerichten.

Es gibt zwei kleine Tante-Emma-Supermärkte im Ort. Einer davon nur ca. 100 m entfernt.

Mosteiros liegt etwas abseits, so dass die Anfahrt zu einigen Ausflugszielen auf der Insel etwas länger ist. Uns hat das nicht gestört. Die schöne Unterkunft dort war es uns wert.

Within the village of Mosteiros one can enjoy the black sandy beach that is only about 200 meters from the Casas do Porto.

There is a convenience grocery store within 50 meters and a pharmacy at about 100 meters. There are a few café bar types where one can get an espresso or something stronger. Two traditional small restaurants in the village offer lunch meals on daily basis, and dinners during the summer months.

If you are a fish enthusiast, you may get the opportunity of buying fresh fish at the port when the local fishing boats come in around nine in the morning.

In the neighboring village of Ginetes, a 20 minute drive, you will find a place called Ferraria, where a thermal spring is found on the ocean´s edge where you can swim in the warm water.

Visit the Azores and come see the green island known as Sao Miguel. Allow your senses to go back in time and let us make this a special holiday for you.

Beautiful home with amazing sunset view

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Sao Miguel was wonderful so many places to explore. The entire island is so beautiful with many hikes and stunning lakes. The house is exactly as it appears in the photo, away from the city and a great place to unwind at the end of the day exploring. Watching the sunset at the end of each day was simply spectacular. Bonita made sure we had lots of information about places to see. Wonderful visit and accommodations. Thank you

Mosteiros is a beautiful little place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 1 week. The property had a beautiful veranda overlooking the ocean. Lots of room to park, nice courtyard behind the house, walking distance to a convenience store. We were very happy with the accommodation.

The property had the most wonderful views. My husband, myself and my 2 teenage daughter stayed for one week and loved everyday. The house was spacious, very clean and well equipped. Bonita met us right on time and was very helpful. She guided us to some adventures and gave us a rundown of the island. Pointing out some great hikes etc. It was very nice because I felt like we had a contact there if we had any questions, problems or concerns. We had relaxing breakfasts on the patio every morning, along with several dinners with wine while watching the sunset, absolutely beautiful. It is a lovely town to walk around and enjoy the beautiful scenery. There are a couple markets and restaurants within walking distance. But once things close you are pretty much stuck, we got back late one night and missed dinner, we did have snacks in the house though. We happened to be there for Bonita and Ed's annual music evening and were lucky enough to hear Rafael Carvalho play the viola. What a great evening!

I would definitely recommend the property especially if you just want to be somewhere to relax. We went exploring most days, so a little on the downside was driving back each day, the road to Mosterios is winding (especially when you are not used to it) and seems long, although it is only about 35 minutes from the airport.

We enjoyed the place very much and hope to return.

Prachtige plekje

  • 4 of 5

We vonden sao miquel fantastisch, heel relaxed, prijzen zijn voor nederlandse begrippen laag, mooie natuur, veel te doen, prima temparatuur.

Casa azelea ligt op een prachtige plek. Uitzicht is ongelooflijk, heel ruim mooi huis, van alles aanwezig zoals een droger en heel attent parasols als je naar het strand gaat. Bonita is zeer behulpzaam.

Als je met meer dan 2 personen gaat, zijn de 2 slaapplaatsen op de overloop ( geen aparte kamer maar afgescheiden van de woonkamer met gordijnen) wat pover.

In mostereiros is alles dichtbij en is het leuk om bij de natuurlijke zwembaden s'avonds wat te drinken of een ijsje te eten. Het is nergens druk. Wij hebben erg genoten. Er is ook een goed restaurant in het dorp met prachtig uitzicht op de zonsondergang. Hier loop je in 5 minuten naar toe.

Alhoewel het niet in de info staat, kent het huis een prima gratis wifivoorziening.

Owner's Response: Good morning, Thank you for your great review for Casa Azalea. Because we care what our guests tell others, we have now built a wall with door to separate the second bedroom. We feel confident that you will be happy about it when you come back.

The BEST home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We have rented apartments or villas in many places around the world. Maria's home by the sea has the loveliest view of all. And Maria is the best home owner we have known.

The duplex villa is birght, open and airy and has everything you need for a home away from home. The view of the sea and sunsets from the terrace are incredible. The location is convenient to shopping, buses and town activities. We were delighted to experience two days of a town festival and also took in the events of an Island election. (The candidates all came by the house and one,the eventual winner, even came up on the terrace for a picture that he said would be posted on his Facebook page!) We appreciated the proximity to one of the prettiest place on the island, Cete Cidades, where we did a number of really extraordinary hikes. (go throught TUNNEL but bring a headlamp!)

But the best part of the whole Azores experience was getting to know Maria. She was helpful beyond all expectations, and FUN. Often she lefts little gifts of figs or vegetables from her garden at the back door. She answered questions, made valuable suggestions and took a real interest in the happiness of our stay. We've never met anyone quite like her. To be fair, the people of Mosteiros and the Azorians in general were delightful, but Maria topped them all.

We travelled around the island a good bit, but never saw anywhere we thought could compare to our little villa by the sea.
