The house was ideal. The 3 bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen had everything one would need. The view from the living area and the outside veranda was picture perfect - wonderful for breakfast and evening cocktails! The owners were very helpful. The location of the house was an unexpected delight - you could get to any part of the island, which made it great for sightseeing within 30-45 minutes. We traveled the entire island - finding majestic views, wonderful hiking trails and the flowers were the icing on the cake. Great gardens around the entire island. We would definitely stay there again if our travels bring us back to Sao Miguel!
