About this listing
I am lucky enough to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Do you want to share it with me? I live in a old stone house with quiet gardens, and a lovely sea view. This listing is for a stay in my cabin, just a few steps from the house. With this listing, you will have free use of the house for internet, tv, etc. And even the kitchen to make your own dinners. Cocktails and a picnic on the patio should suit most everyone.
Details: I am an American ex-pat who has lived here for 14 years.
One more thing, or perhaps two alerts. (1) I am an owner of cats and dogs, if you are allergic to them, my house will not suit you. (2) I am a smoker. The house is well-ventilated and I do not smoke indoors when hosting guests, but I recognize that this may present an obstacle to your enjoyment.
For a cabin stay, I offer a traditional continental breakfast featuring local cheese, jams, and breads.
You will be able to treat the whole main house as your own and have the cabin as your bedroom. You will share the bathroom with me and any other guests. Please see my other listing for house photos. tps:(website hidden)
Interaction with Guests
I am almost always present or a phone call away,
This neighborhood is on the western edge of the island, just a short distance from the Ferraria, Sete Cidades, Mosteiros etal.
Most of my guests have had rental cars, but it isn't really necessary. There is public transportation which stops just outside the house and I have had guests who successfully combined this with walking and hitchhiking.
Other Things to Note
Sorry, I do not accept children.
Just follow the Golden Rule.
About the Host, Susan
Me: partly kooky, partly intellectual, partly creative. I don't know what to say. I am old enough to have gray hair and wrinkles but refuse to lose my sense of wonder and enjoyment of life.
I am American, but have lived in the Azores since 1999. From my house, here in Ginetes, I can look out at the sea from one garden and up to the volcano from another. I have a two dogs who share my bed at night usually with one or more of my cats.
I am a widow, a mother, a grandmother. I make patchwork, am involved in the local theater groups, radio, and women's groups. I enjoy every moment in my adopted home.
