It was a really nice experience. Someone from Flores recommended Banana Manor for me. First I met James, but later also Claudia and their lovely son. The room was really nice, the living room and the kitchen have great ambiance, I had a nice dinner with a great CD. Next morning we had breakfast together, I've heard their story and... More

I stayed at the Banana Manor "out of season" - but never felt out of place! While some accommodations on other islands seemed a little gloomy with not many travelers around, I felt safe and comfortable at the Banana Manor with the added pleasure of enjoying delightful conversations with my hosts. Jim, Claudia and their wonderful son Tiago made this... More

My husband, mother and I stayed for 4 nights and we found the rooms spacious and comfortable and the kitchen fantastic. We... More

James was very informative about the area and made recommendations for where to eat. Tiago proved very helpful in showing me around the garden and introducing me to... More

We stayed 2 nights at Banana Manor, and we wished we had more time on Faial! It's a very homely, lovely large house with a kitchen and livingroom for the guests. We were met by James, who owns the guest house with his wife Claudia. He showed us our room and showed us around. The owner's adorable little son, Thiago,... More

It got a bit rainy and chilly while we were there and she brought sever space heaters for the bathroom and to take the chill out. Fresh bananas in the kitchen every morning was a real treat, Very...
