“Contentment in the Azores”
Reviewed July 4, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

My wife and I chose Sofia's cottage for it's location just across a quiet road from the beach. It was perfect!
We had space to spread out both in the house and in the garden and on the barbecue terrace.
We were very comfortable and found three reasonably priced cafe/restaurants within easy walking distance.
Mosterios was a delightful small town with beaches and natural swimming pools amongst the rocks.
You won't be disappointed!

We stayed 3 nights in Mosteiros. This property was very good with great views on the beach.
Our children loves the house and the beach.

“Quaint cottage with great views”
Reviewed July 6, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Sofia and her mother greeted us warmly and left us with lots of nice things to eat and drink. The cottage is in a great location in Mosterios, just across the road from the beach , with a couple of restaurants and a grocery shop nearby.The house itself is spacious, furnishing and fittings a bit on the old fashioned side especially in the kitchen and bathroom area but with everything you could need for a good holiday including beach rugs, loads of towels, umbrellas etc, also good wifi reception. The outside of the house was our favorite part with a big lawn to the back of the house, 3 separate seating and eating areas as well as a sink and barbeque area and an outdoor shower, a great place to listen to the crashing waves and enjoy the sunsets.

“Beautiful Location!”
Reviewed November 11, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

Sofia was fantastic to work with. Great communication, and made sure we were set with rental car, and anything else we needed. House is large, and well appointed. The best is the location...right across from the most beautiful, black sand beach. Although we had large, storm surf, it was still fantastic to watch, and hear the ocean at night. The town is very nice, and the local store carries essentials. A larger market is 10min drive away. Location of house is ideal to get to lakes, the hot springs, and to Nordeste for a canyoning experience-Highly recommend!

“Spectacular sunsets!”
Reviewed September 29, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

people found this review helpful

We were met at the airport by Sophia's mother, who gave us the keys and some information about parking at the cottage. (The parking is just a short distance down the hill on which the cottage is situated).
The beach house is very pretty with plenty of space, both inside and out. There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with a double, single and cot. (Unfortunately, there didn't seem to be anywhere to store our clothes as the chests of drawers were full of linen etc. So we had to live out of our cases.) The kitchen is small but there is also a dining area and a large seating area with a second table and chairs. The cottage is well equipped with cooking and eating utensils.
At the back there is a large lawn surrounded by giant reeds, and there are plenty of plastic seats. At the front there is a large balcony (the cottage is raised up above the road), which looks out on to the black sand beach and the sea. Every morning two lifeguards came to the beach, and two men raked up any plant material which had been washed up the night before, so it was all very clean.
We loved sitting on the balcony each evening, watching the spectacular sunsets.
We enjoyed our four night stay very much and we hired a car for a couple of days to explore the surrounding area, including the blue and green lakes at Sete Cidades. We also took a whale and dolphin watching trip from Ponta Delgada. Unfortunately we did not see any whales, but the hundreds of common dolphins doing their courtship displays all around the zodiac was an amazing sight.

“Amazing view”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Sofia and her family were very friendly and help us feeling at home. They also help us to organize our holiday, with the precious help of Pedro, who found us a car and reserve a trip for whale watching. We've spent a wonderful week in Mosteiros, relaxed ourselves with spectacular views and the Music of the Ocean with us day and night.
