Exceeded expectations! Super cute and updated apartment, small, but well designed. Location was ideal for us to explore the local area and beyond. The apartment was stocked better than most which included a basket of fruit, treats, wine, coffee, jam, milk, and butter).
Thank you very much for your words about my apartment. It was a great pleasure to receive you and to know you kristi and Matt, and you will always be very welcome when you want to come back!
Until one day...
Awesome apartment in a great location
Elisabete created a clean, well-appointed little home with a terrific view of the sea. We can’t say enough about this rental - we’ve used VRBO a dozen times in the US and Europe, and this was the best! Sao Roque, the village, is outside of Ponta Delgada which is advantageous for exploring the island. Tent this property!
Immaculate, pretty, convenient, and beautiful view--easy access to everything you want to see
This was the perfect home away from home. As a solo traveler, I felt welcomed and safe. Elisabete met me and oriented me to the island and my lodgings. She could not have been nicer or more helpful--checked in with me a few times throughout the stay. I had everything I could have possibly needed. Great care and attention has been paid to anticipating needs and a little extra like the fruit, cheese, and Bolos Levedos provided, all of which I heartily devoured.The location is amazing, both for its view, access to walking or bike path, and for taking the car to various sites around the island--none more than 30 minutes away. It was great for people and ocean watching but also quiet. I would recommend staying here to friends and family. I hope to return as the island and Casa do Ilheu made me feel at home while surrounded by great beauty and joy..

We had a wonderful stay!
I have to say that this was one of the best apartments that we have stayed in through VRBO/Homeaway. Elisabete was a wonderful host. She met us at the apartment and provided awesome area information and tips so that we could make the most of our stay. Location was great for exploring the island. Elisabete had stocked the apartment with fresh fruit, coffee, and snacks and a bottle on wine. So very thoughtful and appreciated! The apartment was so clean and comfortable. We had a grat stay and would highly recommend! Thanks Elisabete!
Hi, Lisa :)

It was a great pleasure for me to welcome you and to meet you and you will always be very welcome when you want to come back. You are a beautiful couple and very dear ones :) :) :)
Until one day...
A great apartment with amazing hosts! Near restaurants and a bike ride to town.
This was such a lovely stay. The hosts are 110% the best I have ever come across. They are so helpful and great with communication. Their little apartments are new, clean and very modern with A/C. You have use of a washing machine, clothesline, and bicycles. Quick ride to the main part of town, where we would bike in the evenings to dinner. The apartment we stayed in had the view of the ocean, and they are located right next door to a yummy restaurant. We would definitely recommend this place, and we would gladly stay here again. There is also 2 parking lots close by to park a car if you are planning to rent one. Thanks again!!!
Thank you so much Tabitha and Kelly for your kind words :)
It was a great pleasure to receive you and to meet a couple as lovely as you.
When you want to come back, we will be here to welcome you with great joy.
We wish all the best for you
Until one day
Elisabete and João
Perfectly located, clean, welcoming place with everything we needed.
Elisabete and João are amazing hosts. We felt like family the moment we entered.
Property faces the beautiful ocean and cliffs, walking and biking paths run from the front door to the center of Ponta Delgada. We used provided bikes to easily pedal to the city and nearby beaches.
Inside the unit is super clean, modern and has everything we needed.
Parking our rental car close to the property was not a problem.
Thank you so much Yuriy for your kind words about us, about our house and about your stay here.
It was a great pleasure to know you and to receive you all and also for us since you arrived we sympathized with you and we felt that we already knew each other, like a family
You are extremely friendly and we hope that one day you will return and we will be there to welcome you :)
Hugs, Yuriy, Beatrice and Rebecca
