“A Dream Come True”

Words cannot express how much we loved this place but I will give it a try. Right from the very beginning of the planning stage of our vacation, I had my eye on this place because of its beauty and the services it provides.I picked Sao Miguel over the other islands because I wanted to stay here and I wasn't disappointed.
Josie was very helpful right from the beginning. Sadly, we had problems at the airport which required that we miss a day in Sao Miguel. That was very stressful for us but Josie was wonderful and took care of the changes to our car rental and made sure that we were still picked up on time which was a huge relief to us.
When we did arrive, Paula was there waiting for us with a warm smile and started taking care of us right away. Our car rental went smoothly with no extra charges. When we arrived at the cottage, we found it to be even lovelier than the picture. Cool inside, no mosquitoes, everything you could ask for as a selfcater. Paula had a lovely spread of wine, breads fruits and cheese. There was beer too and some local drinks to try. They also went out of their way to provide a yummy vegetarian meal for us which was very welcome after all the traveling we had been doing.
The house proved to be beyond my expectations. They had everything there that I could possibly need. The bed was super comfortable we slept better there than anywhere we stayed.We loved the garden, the outdoor sitting area and of course the beach, which is just a comfortable stroll away. My biggest regret was that we couldn't spend more time here. Of 6 places we stayed on this trip, Josie's was our favorite. Best for beauty, comfort and convenience. When you combine that with having someone like Paula,always just a phone call away, available to help with anything you might need, it is unbeatable.

Josie has a beautiful home with all of the amenities! The property is beautiful! Josie's staff person,Paula was absolutely the best! She met us at the airport and then had an incredible home cooked meal waiting for us at the house. I also arranged with Josie to have a catered dinner for several friends who were staying nearby and the food and decor were exceptional! We will definitely come back! Thank you so much Josie and Paula!

Even though our plane was delayed from Boston Paula was waiting for us at the airport (with a smile) to help with the rental car and lead us to the house. On the way to the house she stopped to show us the local grocery store and bakery (we went there every day for some of the best bread we ever had) Once at the house she had a home cooked meal ready for the Family (that was enough for 3 days) and it was delicious. The house was clean,cozy,secure and had great character. Paula went out of her way to make our 8 night stay pleasant. Josie, the home owner was so very helpful and accommodating. She even reserved our rental car for our stay in sao miguel and a week in terceira and then back for another week. If you want more information about our stay you can contact me at N9817h@aol.com (I usually never give out my contact information or leave reviews but this time was special) Thank you

Dear Raymond M. I must say that I am pleasantly surprised; I mean you are still on your travels on the Island of Terceira and yet you thought of us taking the time to write. You were such a delight that right from our initial contact you made for very easy dialogue it was a complete pleasure dealing with you. To know that you and family enjoyed everything about your visit and stay with us and plan on future visits is awesome. I am very grateful that you placed your trust in me, not only with hosting your stay, but also with your car rental needs.
Sao Miguel Ribeira Grande and we at Azor’Oasis are proud to have met you, your visit, patronage, and expression of gratitude with this glowing review has enriched us. Enjoy the rest of your vacation in the Azores, and if at anytime we can be of assistance, please know that you can count us. We remain in the hope see you again, until then, we send you an Ocean filled of sunshine and warm Azorean hugs :)!

“Perfect sea-side luxury cottage”
Reviewed 23 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The house was the perfect base for our Sāo Miguel vacation. It is beautifully appointed and was extremely comfortable for two adults and our teenage son. Two bunk beds allow it to sleep four adults and four children comfortably. I should point out that this is not your normal rental house or AirBnB -- the cookware, appliances, bedding and other details, like fluffy robes, are all of high quality. The house also has access to the sea for sunrise viewing or bathing/snorkeling in warm and calm weather. Plus, you get a delicious traditional Azorean meal to welcome you on your first night!

Nice as it is, however, what really puts it over the top is the way Josie looks after every detail to be sure to please her guests and how warmly Paula the housekeeper makes sure that you lack for nothing. She met us at the airport, showed us where to shop, helped us with various recommendations and got us out of several situations, most notably when I left my computer on board the plane. She drove out to the airport to make sure they'd found it so that we didn't have to interrupt our planned activity!

Dear Michael F; Thank you for visiting amazing São Miguel Azores Portugal, we hope that this was the beginning of many more future visits! I can humbly say that we are touched by your well expressed approval for our product; as well the 5 star rating is very much appreciated. From the onset of our contact you were a pleasure to deal with and we are privileged to have met such a wonderful family as yours. Also your very sweet e-mails of gratitude have not gone unnoticed. It pleases us to do the little things we did to alleviate some of the worry and make your stay a more enjoyable one. After all we are here to host and eager to serve. We are especially thankful for the lovely recognition and generosity given to our housekeeper Paula. Although this is a self catering home, included is that we are in close proximity of the house ready to be of service when needed. Our pride is to be set apart from the rest and do we go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure our guests are well, comfortable and free to enjoy their holiday and stay with us!
Until we meet again we send you wellness, an ocean filled of sunshine and warm Azorean Hugs

Josie is super friendly, prompt with her responses,and full of tips and suggestions. This was a birthday celebration trip for us and an opportunity for my 3 granddaughters to visit their roots. Josie's agent and housekeeper Paula met us at the airport, made sure our car rental went smoothly and then escorted us to the villa where she had prepared a sumptuous welcome dinner complete with wines for the adults and juices for the children. The villa was just perfect - from the fresh cut flowers to the hotel quality linens and kitchen equipment. Accommodations were clean, spacious (for 6 of us - 3 adults and 3 children), perfectly located for easily exploring the island and the views from the cliffs and beach were breathtaking! We would highly recommend this villa to our family and friends and hope to return one day soon. My granddaughters will have many stories and memories for their Vovo and Vavo back home in Canada. Many thanks Josie & Paula , Pat, Ruben, Belinda, Elise, Olivia, and Penny

Dear precious Pat and family; we are very pleased, humbled and blessed for this lovely review, the five star rating is definitely very encouraging. Pat from the moment of your first contact, it was such a pleasure dealing with you. I encourage everyone to ask as many questions as necessary to become comfortable in their decision to stay with us. When selected as a holiday home of choice, besides being excited, it is then, that the real work begins for us to ascertain that all is as perfect as can be.

We are delighted to have met your approval; this means a lot to us, especially when after your checking-in you took the time to e-mail me a lovely precious photo of your granddaughters swimming onsite in the ocean. Pleasantly surprised that you found our hosting style with special touches indicative of expertise. Your sincerity confirmed by the fact that you shared that all of you have a hosting background. I confess that I am by no means an expert, other than the fact that I and staff enjoy very much hosting, and we take what we do very seriously.

This unique and special home has a very high standard as self catering optional home. After all, it is a special place that will contribute and add to your memory lane. Providing a supper clean home, meeting you at the airport and the gratuity full welcome meal is our way to show you how much we value you. The safety comfort and pampering of our guests is top priority and the reason we exist. We have a big vision for this place, to add amenities such as a pool and much more.

Pat, before I forget, I must send a special thank you for the ever so thoughtful gift, the lovely Christmas stars decorations the girls left for us; we can?t wait to decorate for Christmas and proudly display them. The very generous gratuity and beautiful card you left for Paula made her very happy and emotional. The special way you cared for your holiday home, generosity toward Paula and added comments in our onsite guest book deserves to be noted.

PS today the 18th Ruben celebrates a special milestone Birthday in Lisbon Portugal may it be perfect in everyway.Our best wishes for a lifetime of Happiness and all in life that?s good!

We conclude for now in the hope for return visits maybe you can bring along Vav� & Vav� and all your friends. Until then be well an Ocean filled of sunshine and warm Azorean hugs:)
