Our home is a traditional Azorian home - my father built it in the early 50's. The home and the yard have been kept to reflect family traditions and our respect for the local community and culture.
As our guest, you will be completely immersed in the local culture and share the pristine beauty of the islands from an Azorian perspective.
All household items, (website hidden), dishes and silverware have been in the family for many generations. We do expect our guests to be sensitive that each item is a family treasure. Please make children aware of this and be extremely careful.
Being that we live on an island, we are very sensitive and responsible stewards of our environment. We maintain an eco-friendly home,
•Place all trash outside in barrel next to garage
•Rain is part of life in Azores – please close all windows when you’re not home
•Henrique is our gardener – you may see him occasionally around the yard.
•Leonor will provide Wi-Fi password
Very noce house, in a very quiet area, with a nice patio , clean and cozy.
From here We easily visite d the whole Sao Miguel island also following the valuable suggestion of Manuel.
It was a great pleasure to know Debora and Manuel , two people still love their land.
Thank you for the wonderful evening and dinner
This house was amazing. Centrally located to walk everywhere in Lagoa. The house had everything we needed and more. We were able to cook meals and sit on the back patio to enjoy the beautiful landscape. Manuel was very helpful with directions to the house, a local contact in case we needed anything and suggestions with things to do and delicious restaurant recommendations. Thank you, Manuel, for sharing your home with us!
beautiful traditional azorean home, a lovely garden and very friendly hosts. high quality furnishings, comfortable bedroom and bathroom. quiet, upscale neighbourhood.
lagoa is a sea side town, the house 5 minutes from the public swimming spot. there is a bakery, several restaurants and small shops to get groceries nearby.
bus connections to ponta delgada are once an hour good.
would love to return, highly recommended accommodation.
The Azores is a great place that I would recommend to anyone to experience.
Manuels place is a little paradise on earth, the garden/terrace is absolutely lovely with its passions fruits, lime, bananas and different herbs.
We were picked up in the airport and well taken care of.
A few extra guest were staying in the kitchen cabinets,...spiders. But think we scared them away :)

Leonor is a fabulous host.
She picked me up at the airport and got me immersed that same night into the Sao Pedro fiesta!
She had prepared for me a beautiful basket of cheese, grapes, jam and local sweet bread. Fantastic.
She helped me to discover the island. It was wonderful.
The house was extremely clean. The garden is nice. Lagoa is very quiet so it was wonderful for sleeping. I didn't have a car but with wheels, Ponta delGada is about 10 minutes away.
I really liked the fact that the natural swimming pools complex (built right into ocean) is only a few minutes walk. It is beautiful there. Good seafood restaurants too (I love polvo). There is everything nearby.
