About the property

2 bedroom apartment with private patio on the ground floor of the villa

A Quinta’ MORAZES ‘located on the north shore of São Miguel was for a long time a wine-producing property. The main building with its two floors was built in the 19th century; the ground floor had a wine cellar and the top floor a summer residence.

Some years later was added an extension 'the Stone house' and labyrinth garden. Then in 2000 the main house underwent remodeling; the wine cellar was transformed into a two bedroom apartment to accommodate guests, the top floor Remain for family use and the stone house as a art studio.Today guests can contemplate the centennial garden, ocean and mountain views, or simply enjoy a drink by the fire pit.

About Carlos Miranda

I love to spend my afternoons at the art studio painting or simply having a drink with friends or guests.

There are two dogs in estate but, if guests are uncomfortable their presence they can be kept locked away.

Note If you are an artist and wish to use the art studio please contact me for information availability and conditions.

Why Carlos Miranda chose Ribeira Grande

The apartment is very calm and private, there are no other guests in property and you will not be disturbed.

Santa Barbara beach is about 10 minutes by car, and not far from the town of Ribeira Grande

What makes this farmhouse unique

location, nature, country side, best surf beaches, and the outdoor fire pit is great way to relax after a long day of activities.

Best of all worlds in Old Europe!

It is rare that you are able to have everything in a vacation property. Usually you have to give up one thing for another. For example, if you would like a stress free trip with amenities and attention to all your needs by staff you might choose a hotel. If you are willing to give up the concierge and hotel amenities for more space, and often a lower price, you may choose a house or apartment.

Fortunately you can have it all with Carlos' property, and at an unbelievable price. With this farm house you get an amazing property with gorgeous gardens, a fire pit with plenty of wood, views overlooking the fishing village of Rabo de Peixe, and unequaled privacy. The inside of the property is a totally renovated space with all modern amenities. The space was originally the wine cellar of the property. The location is ideal in that you are close to everything. Rent a car and nothing on the island is far away. There is also a washer and dryer, and a perfect interior courtyard. The beauty and amount of space cannot be overstated with this property.

The best part of this rental is Carlos himself. He provided more than any hotel can offer. Our flights were massively delayed, causing us to arrive in Sao Miguel at 2:00 AM. Carlos was at the airport awaiting our arrival. He led us to the farm house and made sure we were comfortable and acclimated to the home. Carlos also provided us with a cell phone to be used for whatever we needed to use it for. He provided us with a crib for our son and groceries to get us started. He was always a phone call away if there was anything we needed. Anything.

This property truly is special, and much like the rest of Sao Miguel, it will blow away your expectations. In all my travels, I have never seen this much for this little (price wise). Please say hello to Carlos for us and enjoy your stay!

Great house, garden and location

  • 5 of 5

Carlos picked us up in the airport, which helped a lot because the house would have been difficult to find, probably. The house is perfect, clean, equipped with all what's needed and very nicely decorated. Not to mention the great garden. Coming from a big town, we had a slight feeling of isolation, but the house and the garden are very comfortable. Carlos was very helpful and available during the whole stay.

Eine Oase zum Entspannen!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Urlaub hier. Carlos, der Vermieter, hat uns schon am Flughafen freundlich empfangen und uns die gesamte Zeit mit der gebotenen Zurückhaltung, aber immer ansprechbar begleitet und uns sehr oft schnell und zuverlässig geholfen. Das war wunderbar! Das Objekt selbst hat einen herrlich großen Garten mit Feuerstelle und vielem mehr. Nicht nur, aber auch für Kinder ist das Haus mit den beiden Aussichtsterrassen und dem großen Garten ideal. Nur wenige Minuten entfernt befindet sich der - sofern der Wellengang nicht zu hoch ist - kindergeeignete Sandstrand von Santa Barbara.
