Biscoitos residence

  • 5 of 5

We know Terceira from both past Lajes AFB transience and subsequent vacation visits. This is a great location, both the town and residence. Francisco and Nellia have offered a most private and accomodating home. It is ideal for two couples but three also would be comfortable if willing to share a common bathroom. A Bicoitos stay does require a car to enjoy the whole island but it is a nice rural/town atmosphere with the lava baths close by. I wish my Portugueses were better because I would like to ask Francisco about the home details which are masterful. Great owners, thanks and will return!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This home me and my family stood in was absolutely perfect. From the 15 min walk to the natural swimming pools, to the beautiful view of the landscape, absolutely stunning. It is located in the beautiful rustic village of Biscoitos. If you want a quiet, relaxing spot on this island, this home is the one to book your stay with. Very clean, plenty of towels and very spacious rooms. Francisco & Nélia were awesome. They were prompt when meeting up with us and gave us a tour of the house and local things to do. We will definitely stay again hopefully in the near future. Thanks again Francisco & Nélia for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

Best Regards

This house was the perfect location for a slow-paced, relaxing, and very-much-fun holiday. The only frustrating thing was that there were no friends or family around to share it with. This house is excellent for entertaining with seating and settings for around 20 people. The outside bar-b-q area is terrific with a wonderful wood-burning grill (we did steaks, burgers, and heated a left-over pizza on the grill), oven, and "stove-top." The table on the outside patio area is brilliant--in 30 seconds it goes from cocktail table height to dinner table height; the stools around it are also of a unique and original design.

We had fires in the house almost every night (sorry if we used up too much of your fire wood Nelia and Francisco) and really enjoyed just listening to music and watching the fire. The inside of the house is cozy and comfortable, with nice sized rooms and everything you need for cooking and living.

A 15 minute walk downhill through a very pretty, charming, and at times rustic neighborhood takes you to the wonders of the natural swimming pools of Biscoitos. It was a bit cold for swimming for these Florida boys but watching the huge waves rolling in, smashing into these gigantic rocks and the overflow forming the swimming pools is in itself worth a visit to the island.

We were sorry to have to leave this wonderful house and can hardly wait to come back next year for a longer visit--nine day was nice but not enough. I seriously cannot imagine anyone staying at this lovely home and leaving with any negativity. It was a joy. Thank you for sharing your home with us Nelia and Francisco. Sean and David

New, updated home with Traditional Island charm

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place, hands down. It was well maintained and recently built, but kept the traditional charm one would expect from a home on the islands of Azores. Really enjoyed the vast property with many trees and flowers and a beautiful fig tree that continuously supplied us with fresh fruit. The property had all the basic amenities one would expect and more. The amazing covered porch and outdoor bbq area was great for our whole family to entertain even to have guests, or just enjoy a simple morning coffee under the blue sky's and listening to waves, or late night coffee under the blanket of stars. It is very close to one of the most desirable swimming spots on the island "Biscoitos - Abismo" where we enjoyed a lot of our time.

If I can offer one suggestion would be to have the internet access, however, I do not necessarily think with was all bad as it allows you to completely disconnect and truly focus on your time there.

I would highly recommend the property to anyone, the owners were great and made themselves available before, after, and during our stay for anything we needed. I would look forward to renting the property again, again.

Thank you Francsico and Nelia.

A rare pearl!

  • 5 of 5

We found a rare pearl when renting this beautiful home! Our hosts met us at the airport and guided us back to their home. The house is fully equipped, homey, and included many different amenities to make it feel like our own getaway retreat. Special Portuguese treats were waiting for us from our hostess!

A mini tour of the Biscoitos visiting the local bakery and butcher shop (which we found absolutely wonderful and so reasonable!!) followed. A drive along the ocean gave us a picture of what our next ten days of heaven would be like.

Even though the weather for the first few days was not on our side, it did not hamper our lengthy walks, hikes, and visits on the island. Our days ended with a glass of vino at the small, but , oh, so very friendly port café. It is a short ten minute walk from the house and one cannot pay for the view of the ocean, it was well worth the walk!

Would we recommend this place, totally!!

Great apartment in best location

  • 5 of 5

The location: The apartment is very central but still quiet.

The apartment: Very spacious and clean. We only needed two of the three bedrooms. Kitchen and bathroom has everything you need. A water cooker would have been helpful for breakfast. Beds are good. WIFI over LTE router from the landlord. Washing machine available.

Surroundings: Very large garden with a nice terrace. Open barbecue next to terrace.

The landlord: Very friendly and attentive landlord. Surrender everything has worked out uncomplicated.
