About Anamaria Bercik
I was born and raised on the island of Terceira. I moved to the United States when I was 15 years old. I am an attorney and used to practice in New Jersey. I also have three children. I have seen many beautiful places in the world, but I always find the Azores to be the most enchanting. For that reason, I decided to build a house in my place of birth. You will find my home to be your 'home' . It is charming and comfortable. As my friends who stay there often say 'Your home has good karma'. Anamaria
Anamaria Bercik purchased this House in 2005
Why Anamaria Bercik chose Municipality of Angra do Heroísmo
This house is light and airy with floor to ceiling windows. It combines traditional Portuguese touches with modern conveniences. The house is decorated to reflect my Azorean heritage and my eclectic taste in art. It's comfortable, clean, and full of energy.
What makes this House unique
My house has a very traditional Portuguese feel, but also combines more modern elements in terms of decor and functionality. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the tools you need to create a great meal. All the rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. My house is also perfectly situated--it's on a steep hillside with amazing views. But it's also close enough to Angra. Also, having the 'beach' (natural rock pool) at the bottom of the street is also nice if you want a quick swim.

The property owner was very welcoming and easy to communicate with as she speaks perfect English as well as Portuguese. She was close by in a guest house, so any questions we had she was available to answer. The island is pristinely beautiful and totally charming! We had a lovely time and our rental was comfortable and beautifully furnished. It is so nice to travel so far and be welcomed into a comfortable home. A short walk down the hill puts you at a swimming area. We had 4 teenagers with us who were very comfortable on the second floor as there are 3 large bedrooms up there. My sister and husband and I shared the two master bedrooms on the first floor. The view of Monte Brazil and the Goat Islands is the best on Terceira.
Thank you so much for your review and the lovely gifts. Thank you a million
Wonderful stay, nice people :-)
Words just can't describe.....
We returned to the island after 38 years. A family trip of 7 for our father's 75 birthday. Nothing less than AMAZING..The Island has changed a bit, but our childhood home near the Airforce base at Lodjes was still there...what great memories... Anamaria, you are just wonderful! Everything was perfect, we were met at the airport, helped with our luggage, and when we arrived at your home everyone was just speachless! We could not have stayed anywhere better...spacious...everyone had plenty of personal space...and lots of room to sit and mengle together. The view of the ocean and "Sheep Island" is like looking at a post card...Thanks for making everything so perfect and easy...Our father said it was the "best trip of his life"..Serving in the U.S. Airforce for 22 years, he has been to and seen a lot of places, so his comment means alot. My brothers and sister are already talking about a future trip to Terceira with our children so they can enjoy the same wonderful experiences. We could not have picked a better time to visit as the Sanjoaninas festival was going on. What a way to get emersed into the Azorean culture...bull fights...parades...food...and people.
Thankyou...Thankyou...Anamaria for the trip of a lifetime...your simply the best and we are looking forward to our next visit.

I did not realize you had given a review of my house. Thank you so much. I am so happy you had a great time. it is always a joy to rent my house to those who have some ties with Terceira.
Hope to hear form you again
Beautifull and peacefull only way to describe it.
My husband and two kids just returned from Terceira where we stayed in this beautifull home. The location was perfect. Close to the sea which we all loved and close enough to the nearby towns. I hadn't been to Terceira in 30 years so it was wonderfull to see my small island but also to stay in such a comfortable and enviting place. If you choose to rent this house you will not be disappointed the pictures don't do enough justice. Thank you so much to Anamaria and her cousin who helped us during our stay!
Mike & Angy July 2010
We rented the property for 10 days in July 2010 with family and had the most wonderful time. The house is everything and more.
I would recommend it to anyone. The people are helpfull, the fish at the little restaurant we ate almost daily was wonderful, the weather was absolutely gorgeous
and the view, well spectacular.
As far as renting a car, take a taxi it's cheaper and you can drive into Angra for 8 Euros one way. Wonderful city by the way, we will miss it.
Thank You again Anamaria
This house is a palace!
We went for two weeks in April 2010 and had a perfect visit, despite the rain.
I asked everyone (all six of us) what they liked best about your house:
D says location - between Monte Brasil and the islands to the east
L says the wrap-around patios.
M says the beautiful, comfortable bedrooms.
J says the many, many windows.
R says the new villa being built - looks great and sits on the land beautifully.
I say all of the above plus the big table we've spent so much time being a family around.
Thank you so much for this lovely refuge and perfect family vacation spot.
Enjoy whale watching, exploring other islands by ferry/plane, touring the island's volcano, and seeing the traditional Azorean bullfights that take place in city streets. During the summer there are numerous festivals--every week you can find street fairs and colorful events that celebrate Terceira.
