A dream home, located on the north side of the island of S. Miguel conveniently situated near the SCUT which makes all kinds of tours and discoveries easily accessible by car.

Casa Canada
We stayed for 10 nights and enjoyed Antonio’s home in the Azores. He provided lots of information and answered any/all questions. The house gave us a feeling of traditional, rural Azorean countryside living - Complete with cows and a lovely little horse in the pastures beyond. It is well situated and central to main highways and roads. António’s description of his house is completely accurate.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect retreat
We loved the cottage and enjoyed the location and views. We had everything we needed and Antonio is very helpful with trip planning and easily reachable.

5/5 Excellent

lovely house
Our stay at Antonio's house was wonderful. It really looked as beautiful as pictured, surrounded by the beautiful countryside. You can see mountains from the back of the house and the sea from the porch. The immediate area is surrounded by farmlands, just wonderful. You will need to rent a car for this house but at the same time pretty much everything on the island can be reached within an hour by car from here. The main town Ponta Delgada is only 25 minutes away by car and there are closer smaller towns dotted along the way. There is a big supermarket Modelo Continente located about 10 minutes from the house so if you want to make your own meal or do some grocery shopping this is the place to go. There is a beautiful black sand beach behind the supermarket what more can you ask for?

4/5 Good

The drive up the flower and tree lined driveway was very welcoming.
The Stonehouse from the outside is very beautiful, and accomadating for unloading and loading vehicle. The 360 degree view is very pleasant all around. Add the many chirping birds making there living in the trees, and comfortable chairs on the porch, what is there not to like. The inside was a bit tight for 3 adults. Watch for ants making there way to food and sweet drinks. Keep it clean and tight and it shouldn't be a problem. Some sharp knives in the draw would be nice, at least one for cutting up food. English directions on how to use washing machine would be a p lus. Never did get it right. Door stop for front door a necessity when other doors or windows are open. It will slam shut on you. Also a latch for bathroom window to prevent it from slamming shut when airing it out. These are my suggestions for a better stay. Overall the Stonehouse was a pleasant stay. We loved the privacy even though you could see the highway. It was not intrusive at all.

The perfect place
Toda a experiência nesta casa tornou a nossa estadia nos Açores mais especial. O António, dono da casa, foi uma simpatia, sempre disponivel para dar as melhores dicas e garantir que estávamos bem. A casa é maravilhosa em tudo, desde a localização central, vista para o campo e para o mar (com por do sol lindo), até ao conforto grande de uma casa bem equipada, arrumada e asseada. Se voltarmos ficaremos no mesmo sítio! Obrigada
