It was here in the town of Povoação that settlers landed.
It is from here that you can discover the island of São Miguel.
The municipality of Povoação is considered the most beautiful of the Azores.
Come yourself find out why.

The space

It's a whole floor consisting of bedroom, private bathroom, large lounge and balcony with partial views of the garden city.

This floor will provide you with more comfort and better privacy. Great for families with children, or groups, it is possible to put more two single beds.

Is allowed access to the kitchen.

Price is just for the room, the remaining members of the group will be considered case by case.

My house is located in the town center of Povoação, right next to the hospital, the school, the church, the bank, the grocery store, the fire service of snack bars and restaurants. There is also a bus stop very close, as well as a tourist information center. The two beaches of Village of Povoação are just at a distance of 500 meters. The lines of communication on the island have recently been improved so it is very easy to navigate around the island based on the Povoação Council.

It is recommended to rent a car in order to discover the island of St. Miguel.

I also have two bicycles and a scooter for rent.

Miguel is a great host. He helped us with dinner suggestions, hiking, and questions we had about the Azores. His house is in a perfect location as it is really close tho the main square. We loved the town of Porocacio

The rooms where well kept and cleaned, better than expected. The house is a stones throw (block and 1/2) from the garden center and some restaurants. I would rate it *****. Host was very helpful and knowledgeable.

If you need a place to stay while in Sao Miguel, I would recommend this place. It's very easy to get to most of the more popular scenic attractions. Everything was great and Miguel can give you some traveling tips while you are there. He definitely goes out of his way to make sure his guests are completely satisfied. Highly recommended!

Miguel's house is good value given how nice, large, and private the guest space is. I would stay again and recommend it to any Airbnb user. >> The guest space included the whole upstairs floor with a private bedroom, bathroom, couch area, and access to a balcony. The bedroom and bathroom ceiling, shower, and bed is a bit small if you are over 6 foot / 1.8 meters. Nevertheless, the bed was very comfortable with many extra blankets, and the bathroom head readily accessible hot water. >> The neighborhood is safe, quiet, and next door to a grocery store, Povoacao's best restaurant, cafes, and the water. >> Miguel is a thoughtful and communicative host. He laid out a breakfast setting for us in the kitchen. Although being out of town during our visit, he responded quickly to messages through Airbnb and provided us detailed directions to the house via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), including pictures of where we needed to go and how to get there. >> This house and Povoacao were the perfect places to end our 9-day stay in the Azores: relaxing, many amenities that make life easy and enjoyable, delicious sea food, and beautiful.

Miguel is a wonderful host who took the time out of his schedule to really make us feel welcome in his home. We had a lovely experience, and if you're staying in Povoaçao his place is definitely worthwhile and conveniently located. If you are tall, though, be careful in the bathroom so you don't hit your head! :)

Sou o Miguel Cabral, sou natural desta bela ilha de S. Miguel e resido no concelho da Povoação, que se situa no litoral sul-sudeste (SSE) da ilha de S. Miguel. Este concelho é considerado o mais lindo do Arquipélago dos Açores.

Vivo com os meus dois filhos, a Catarina de 13 anos e o Pedro de 10 anos.

Já há bastante tempo que tenho ideia de partilhar a minha casa. Não só com o objectivo de rentabilizar o meu espaço, mas também com a finalidade de conhecer novas pessoas, com culturas diferentes.

Embora não domine muito bem o inglês, faço-me entender minimamente. Sempre que convivo com pessoas de culturas diferentes, normalmente comunicamos em inglês, o que tem melhorado significativamente os meus conhecimentos da língua inglesa. Espero que me ajude neste processo de aprendizagem.

Gosto de fazer caminhadas. No Concelho da Povoação existe uma boa rede de trilhos pedestres, que transmitem boas sensações e nos aproximam da natureza. Gosto também do Verão, nas idas à praia.

Actualmente o único desporto que pratico é o parapente. Embora seja considerado um desporto radical, é um desporto que me transmite boas sensações. É lindo o sentimento de liberdade e de tranquilidade que o parapente nos proporciona. É uma forma diferente de desfrutar da natureza, que aqui nos Açores é bela, muito bela.

Se aceitar este meu convite, espero poder-lhe ajudar a tomar as melhores decisões para as suas férias.

Seja bem vindo/a
