“Absolutely Perfect!”
Reviewed April 26, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We absolutely LOVED the cottage at Faja. The location is stunningly beautiful and wonderfully private. Zelda and Lawrence are great hosts, and they've thought of everything you might need. They've even compiled a great resource of information about Faial, places of interest and local restaurants. They were super friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay there again!

“Perfectly Secluded Cottage by the Sea”
Reviewed April 5, 2015 for a stay in July 2014

If you are looking for a private holiday cottage by the water's edge, then Os Salguieros is the place for you! Completely secluded at the bottom of rugged, green hills sits a pristine cottage while your only "neighbor" is the ocean with it's hypnotic waves crashing upon black volcanic rocks at the coastline that borders the property and a short walk to the beach. One can gaze upon the sea from the rooftop terrace of the cottage while watching the sun set over the sapphire blue ocean and enjoy a glass of locally produced wine with that special someone and feel like you are far away from civilization. To me, nothing says Paradise quite like that!

Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung unserer Cottage, wir haben euer Aufenthalt sehr geschätzt. Es ist uns ein Anliegen unseren Gästen eine qualitativ hohe Unterkunft anzubieten. Aus diesem Grund statten wir unsere Häuser mit Gegenständen und Gebrauchsartikeln, die von Qualität her über den Durchschnitt liegen: robuste Matratzen, Wäschetrockner, Klimaanlagen, Internet, Festnetz, Geschirrspülmaschine, Strand-Badetücher und viele andere extra Details. Unsere Gäste sind auf der Suche nach Privatsphäre, Frieden und ruhiger Umgebung. Durch die privilegierte Lage, in der unsere Cottage situiert ist, fehlen in der unmittelbaren Nähe die Restaurants, Cafés und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Aber es ist ein Stück vom Himmel und wir lieben es! Trotzdem, wenn ein Bedarf besteht die Stadt zu besuchen – es ist nur 25 Minuten Fahrweg entfernt.
Liebe Grüsse von den Inhabern, Lawrence & Zelda
