Hi Just got back to Vancouver late last night.Your condo was everything and more that was described.
Arrived in the middle of a wind storm and so enjoyed watching the wild ocean from the comforts of this condo. The views are spectacular - fabulous kitchen, expansive deck, comfortable beds and yes a working Wi-Fi. A home away from home!!
Loved wandering through the town finding the best coffee shops. Beautiful place to run, walk or hike. With a rented car, we could easily travel the entire island. We dined with some of the locals, John and Goretti - a wonderful experience. Golf at your fingertips. Grocery stores around the corner. But nothing equals the view. Just go and enjoy!!
My husband and I stayed here 3 weeks-end of May to mid June. The condo is in a great location. We rented a car and drove to many tourist attractions as nothing is very far away.
Condo has wi-fi, washer/dryer, microwave, dishwasher, coffee machine everything you would need. It also has a huge balcony where we sat having a drink and watching the sunsets. There is a large modern supermarket nearby. Parking in front of the condo not a problem.
So close to the ocean you can hear it at night, lovely! There is a municipal pool nearby which opened the week we left. Wonderful pools and right by the beach. We bought a cheap disposible phone at the supermarket as this is how we communicated with Goretti and John who were a huge help to us. I would recommend this condo and would love to come back. Hope you enjoy it as much a we did. :-)
We stayed 8 days in this condo, the second week of September. Everything was as advertised, except we couldn't get connected to the internet. We used the free WiFi mostly at the small restaurant above the wonderful pools, Let It Be and A La Bote, our favorite place to get a great dinner, with amazing views of the ocean. There were also great ocean views from the Condo's veranda. Goretti was nice enough to go out and buy a small table to use outside with the chairs provided. We rented a car and drove all over the island, our most interesting activities were snorkeling on the islet off Vila Franca do Campo, the breathtaking views of Sete Cidades, and swimming in the volcanically heated pool at Terra Nostra. We would love to return!
Just got back from renting condo for 10 days in August.
I would recommended this condo. Great location . Not far from highway and all towns.
Condo was very clean and Goretti and John were very helpful and telling us were to go for dinner and beaches.
I would book this condo again.
We really enjoyed staying at your property. If we make it back to Sao Miguel, we'd definitely stay there again.
The beds were comfortable and it's very spacious. It's also great that you have wifi. It came in handy for my wife and kids.
The property is also in a great location. It's pretty much 15 to 20 minutes to everywhere we wanted to visit on the island.
We spent nearly everyday at the pool/beach and had several meals at Let It Be. A dip in the pool or beach and a coffee started each day.
Thanks again and we hope to come back in the future
Our family (5) enjoyed our stay in Ribeira Grande. The condo was great: beautiful view and easy access to beach and pool. The condo was very clean, the appliances in great condition and easy to use.
An extra set of keys would have been greatly appreciated specially when travelling with young children.
Other Activities: Shopping, Boating, Parasailing, Shelling, Health/Beauty Spa, Beach Volleyball
