“Perfect location next to one of the worlds most beautiful beaches!”
Reviewed 14 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Every year we return to Sao Miguel where I was born..this year we decided to rent this house because it was across the street from our favorite beach! This house truly does not disappoint. Immaculately clean and well maintained. Brand new renovation. This house boasts 2 master suites both with their own private bathroom and balcony. An additional bedroom also could sleep 2 more. Also has a loft space with 3 beds in total if you need more room. This home is just wonderful. Spacious and comfortable. TV is amazing and works great with an unlimited amount of channels. Wifi was PERFECT especially for the kids and their IPads and Netflix! No pests (that are common in the tropics of the Azores) this house had zero! Joao the attendant of the house was superb, kind..eager to please and sweet as can be. The Dad (senhor Manuel) lives next door and is an absolute sweetheart. These people became like family to us. So very good to us. We just got back and we have already booked again for next year. Thank you Joao, Senhor Manuel and Diane. It was truly a privilege to stay at casa Santa Barbara. Can't wait for next year!

“A nice, spacious house with two ensuite bedroom / bathrooms”

We enjoyed staying in Ribiera Grande. The location was convenient to travel around the rest of the island. The owners were very helpful in all ways. Very prompt with answers to questions and provided us with maps and direction and instructions for our arrival. It was very nice to find bread, butter, cheese, beer and wine waiting for us on arrival. Our damage deposit was returned to us within ten days of our return.

“This house is like opening a gift when you pass through the front door.”
Reviewed 1 March 2017 for a stay in January 2017

person found this review helpful

Your eye is led through the front hall all the way to the garden patio at the back of the property. The second floor, is as gifting as the first. This house is fully equipped. We stayed one month, made ourselves at home, this being our first visit to the Azores
Location ideal, small garage for small car rental, quiet with privacy. Looked forward to morning walks everyday on the beach, rain or shine.
Fresh bread, fresh fruit and vegie trucks, meat products all passing by the door for your convience. We are hopeful to make a return visit.

“A LOVELY BIG COMFORTABLE HOUSE.”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

person found this review helpful

A big suprise !!, when you a view the house from the front it looks very small,just a garage door and front door but once inside it is massive having been extended at the back. Everything has been built to a high quality and we were well looked after by the neighbour "John" who met us at the airport and took us to the house. There was a nice welcome pack with wine,bread, milk etc and we used Johns family to taxi us around the island for a couple of trips for a reasonable fee.
We enjoyed the Island and used the buses on the first week, bus stop 2 minutes away and hired a car for second week. Lots of suprises on Sao Miguel we enjoyed all of it.
The house was very comfortable and had everything and a good central base on the island for travelling around.
