We made a rather spontaneous trip to Sao Miguel and were pretty worried that we wouldn't be able to find an accommodation that fast - but Alfredo made it work and we couldn't have hoped for a better place to stay!
Alfredo was the perfect host, very friendly, uncomplicated and provided us all the information we needed for one amazing week on this beautiful island.
The studio is very bright and sunny and has everything you need ready to use. The terrace is calm and has a beautiful view.
Would definitely come back again! :)
Alfredo was an excellent host, checking in with me to see if I was enjoying his island or if I needed any advice or recommendations days before I even checked in to his place!
His home is beautiful, tastefully decorated, bright and sunny.
Everything that I needed was provided
Alfredo has a great knowledge about the island and is willing to share it. He has plenty of travel info and maps ready to use. We had a very good time on Sao Miguel despite not so great weather.
Our first time using AirBnB! We chose to stay at Alfredo's Studio based on the reviews - and without a doubt they were all accurate in their descriptions and our stay was great. The location was quiet and idyllic. Alfredo had a lot of material and information about the island at the ready, which was great because we were ill-prepared and came with no itinerary whatsoever! He was very accommodating and welcoming. We had rented a car for the week as well, so it was relatively easy going back and forth between the Studio and other locales.
Great apartment a little way out from town but otherwise very very good. Alfredo is a perfect host.
Alfredo's house was very clean, comfortable and inviting, with a super neat blend of modern meets old world (in terms of both the surrounding landscape and the older house that's attached to this addition). The outside patio is enormous and a good spot for some al fresco wine drinking.
It's best to think of this space as a masterpiece in progress -- this place is very much a labor of love, and one that will only get even better with time as Alfredo continues to improve upon it.
As a host, Alfredo is hands-down the best we've ever met -- gracious and inviting, and a fount of knowledge on places to see and things to do around the island. Staying with him gave us a chance to experience Sao Miguel with far better insight than we'd expected, and for that alone it was worth staying here!
Highly recommend. Pick this place if you're looking for an authentic experience with a host who truly knows and loves his home and homeland.
Me and my parents spent 4 wonderful days in São Miguel and there is significant Alfredo's contribution in our positive experience! If you take his place, you get not only the apartment (which itself is very nice and comfortable), but also extremely warm receiving, useful hints and a set of ideas what to do on the island. Alfredo is great host and we will recommend his place for all our friends, who will stay in Ponta Delgada one day.
We stayed only 3 nights at Alfredo's place, but we really enjoyed it. The terrace is beautiful and the room has everything you may need.
As Alfredo already recommended in his description, a car would be quite convenient. However, the bicycle was a nice alternative to get to and from the city.
Unless you're very athletic, I wouldn't recommend exploring the island on a bicycle.
Our stay was wonderful and peaceful. We really enjoyed relaxing in the terrace at the end of the day. Just make sure you have a vehicle to move around. Alfredo is a very nice host and provided a lot of helpful tips.
We spent a week in this cosy apartment and enjoyed it. Alfredo is a great host and he will help you out with whatever you need. He knows a lot about the island and can give valuable advice.
