Amazing views overlooking the ocean! The breakfast was a feast, and made for a great start to a day of exploring Pico. Helen is a very generous and attentive host with great tips for exploring the island. Laundry service is also available for a reasonable price, always helpful for those on longer trips!

Stayed here 2 nights and greatly enjoyed the experience. The host, Helena, truly cares about making the visit to the guest house and the island enjoyable. She gave us good points of interest to see and explained what we would see on our drive. The breakfasts were prepared at our desired times and were very good. Highly recommend staying here.

We were there the 2nd time in August 2018. We, a family of three, had a great week in the "Sofia" appartment. Breakfast is also fantastic, usually outside if weather allows it (which was the case everyday during our stay). The suite has also a fridge, which is important for us. A great place to rest after climbing Pico or swimming in the Atlantic!

We had a wonderful experience staying at this B&B and this is due to the fantastic ladies that took care of us during our stay. They are: Helena, Vera and Daniela and we send our love and appreciation to them. We've never been treated so well and efficiently then here, compared to all the other places we've ever stayed in our past history of travels. Our stay here really did "feel like home!" I've already recommend this place to everyone I know and raved of its excellence!

Our second visit to this brilliant B&B and it just confirmed how good it was. Perfectly located for us and as comfortable a place as you will find. The House was immaculate and the rooms excellent once again. The welcome is brilliant the staff could not be more helpful. We are returning later in the year to enjoy their hospitality once again, why change a good thing once you have it.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay as the guests of John, Helene and Paola in this lovely house. Our room (Sophia) was huge with sitting room, bedroom and full bathroom. Our hosts were great - friendly, courteous, helpful and always willing to go the extra mile for their guests. The standard of the House is high and maintained that way with room service every day. Breakfast and BBQs are taken on the terrace and in the round which helps to create a lovely atmosphere for all the guests. We shall return.

My stay at Miradouro Da Papalva is hard to put in words as i felt overwhelmed with the tender Love and care of Helena, Jon and Pam. It is such a beautiful place, with seaviews all around, even from my bed!!, hills and the beautiful mountain of Pico just in the backyard.. Every mornig i woke up with the smell of fresh coffe and homemade jams, being spoiled and pampered by Helena. The location of the house is stunning, the room has a very nice atmosphere is big and the bed is nice and comfortable, with views on the sea- and coastline! I felt relay welcome and at home, thank you so much for this beautiful stay! You've found a special place in my heart and i will deinateley come back to your place! With Love, Antoinette from Holland

Beautifully located guest house. The staff are warm, friendly and always willing to lend you a hand, be it driving you to a place, picking you up from the airport or giving a recommendation for a restaurant or boat trip. The house itself is really pretty, with comfortable rooms, a small but nicely laid out garden and multiple outdoor eating/relaxing areas. The view of Pico from Sao Joao is stunning, as is the Guest House's proximity to the sea. As its up a country lane, the area is quiet at night. Bathrooms are well fitted, while the beds are extremely comfortable. There is no food served, not even breakfast, although the corner shop down the road does provide the bare essentials. This is, nevertheless, the perfect spot for a bit of relaxation on Pico.
