This home has such a gorgeous beautiful view and we could sit on the porch watching the waves crash on the rocks for hours! A very relaxing spot. The bed is very large, but we found it a bit hard for our preferences - if you prefer a more fluffy bed you might keep that in mind. We visited in July and found it quite warm when we closed the sliding doors, but the birds were too loud at bedtime if we opened the doors. But again, that is due to our personal preference - if you don't mind warm air (or loud birds!) while sleeping, you would probably be perfectly comfortable. The kitchen is big enough to cook plenty of meals and the washer/dryer are very convenient. We loved plugging in our phone to listen to music on the speakers around the whole house, and we couldn't get over the gorgeous views!

Response from Thomas & Alessandra:
Thank you for your feedback and very happy you enjoyed the views, music and relaxation. The bed is an orthopaedic bed, so harder than usual, but actually much better for the back and neck, but we understand your comments. As for the Cory´s Shearwater birds, they are an exotic, protected and much loved species on the island. They are only there during the summer. They mate for life and return to their exact same nests every summer. The house is in the middle of nature and the nests were there long before we arrived so we did not want to disturb their habitat.

By far the best place we have ever stayed. The view is amazing, from almost every room in the house. The house is well equipped, loads of space. We were picked up from the airport and dropped off at the house after a 20min drive. Two small local grocery stores in Biscoitos, and a larger supermarket 20mins drive in Angra. Two good restaurants in Biscoitos, or another highly rated one in the next village up. There's a natural swimming pool in a Biscoitos, on the coast, viewable from the house. We're told in the right conditions you can see Whales and Dolphins from the house, the owners have left a pit of binocolors in the house, but we weren't lucky enough. Thanks for a great stay, we'll be back again soon.

The house and views are spectacular. You can tell the car taken in building this remote-feeling getaway on a beautiful island. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here.

The house is just amazing and breathtaking, exactely like on the pictures. We loved our stay there in complete privacy. It is stunning that you can live so close to civilisation but so close to nature. Check-in was perfect and Rui was so helpful with everything! Would definitely recommend to stay there (forever :D)
