What a truly wonderful place in all respects! Fabulous location, lovely self contained home beautifully renovated and kitted out with everything we needed, and very comfortable. And Susanne is so helpful and welcoming and just knows exactly what her guests need. I can wholeheartedly recommend this gem of a place and will be back! Thankyou!
Susanne and Jan,
Thanks for picking us up from and bringing us back to the busstation!
Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise.
Great place, great house.
What could be more welcoming than fresh flowers, eggs, milk, butter, coffee and homemade bread on arrival?
I had dreamed of staying at Mae d'Agua for a couple of years - had it bookmarked in my travel folder - and our visit completely confirmed this excellent choice of accommodations in Ribeira Grande.
Susanne and Jan are excellent hosts: knowledgeable, helpful, lovely people. What they offer in this gorgeous place is beyond my ability to describe. It is simply magical and we already look forward to our return.
nice house, beautiful views , very calm, you can hear the ruver all the time.
Susanne very kind, she helps us during our staying.
the house is close to the towwn, ribeira grande ( calm and nice village)
Susanne's place is realy wonderful, you feel like you're in paradise. Lovely nature with the water always running under you and a beautiful sunset. The house is spacious and has everything you need. Susanne is a lovely lady, very helpful and wellcoming. We're sorry that we did not meet Jan, her partner, but maybe we will some day , we would surely love to come back. Paula the dog may look big but she is very friendly, just like her mistress. Thank you Susanne for a great time at Ribeira Grande.
Staying at Mae d'Agua Cottage was perhaps our favorite spot throughout our whole trip through Portugal. While the cottage is tucked away behind the town, it is still very central and we enjoyed walking to and from the restaurants in town on several different occasions. Susanne was a great host and very welcoming. The cottage was fully equipped and made for a comfortable stay.
Beste Unterkunft bei unserem Aufenthalt auf der Insel. Entspannung pur und trotzdem nur ein paar Minuten zu Fuß in die "city". Susanne und Jan waren spitzenmäßige Gastgeber.
