“Great Avocados, terrible dogs!”
Reviewed 5 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were very happy with our stay in Casa dos Agapantos. We were welcomed with a wonderful guided tour, a table full of buns, fruit and the most incredible avocados we've ever eaten. The apartment is comfortable and a great place to spend your time in Sao Miguel. You are a two minute drive out of the City or a ten minute walk into the town centre.

Ponta Delgada is a bustling town with an energetic young nightlife, but also catering nicely to the tourists with loads to do on land and at sea. But make sure you explore the rest of the island as well as there's so much great stuff, although in April there is a lot of rain and bad weather to contend with.

The only negatives we obliged to make people aware of is the dog that lives behind the apartment, we lost a couple of nights sleeping to its incessant barking and growling, and nights we chose to have in were punctuated by a soundtrack of aggressive dog yapping, not quite as relaxing as we'd hoped.

The bed is also not the most comfortable, I wouldn't recommend it if you suffer from back trouble.

But this doesn't take away from the overall loveliness of the appartment and the location and wonderful welcome from our host.

“Amazing place with charm”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was our first experience with booking a private residence versus the normal hotel travel stay on vacation. Maria was very accommodating right from the start. She welcomed us and provided us with baked goods, jam and tour area information including places to eat. Her place is walking distance from the supermarket, farmers market and close by to the city central. The studio apartment was very clean, cozy, and had everything we needed to feel at home. We would highly recommend this studio apartment to others traveling to Ponta Delgada that want to get away from the typical hotel stay life.

My wife and I stayed at Casa dos Agapantos for 10 days in September. and had a wonderful time. Our owner, Maria, greeted us on our arrival with maps, tour books and information on restaurants and things to see and do as well as stocking our kitchen with milk, bread, homemade jams, and fresh fruit, which was perfect for us after an overnight flight. She then took us on a tour of her beautiful grounds and gardens and our studio for the next 10 days. You can see immediately the love and care that Maria and her family have put into this property. I still can't get over the size of the property, ie the gardens and grounds, for a property in the city. The apartment is very clean, a good size for an extended stay, has its own private entrance, and within walking distance to the downtown area of Ponta Delgada. We had no problem parking our vehicle on the street each night. We simply had a wonderful stay and strongly suggest that you don't book anything in Ponta Delgada until you call Maria. Its that good.

“A little paradise!”

Everything in the city was walking distance. The property is lovely and clean. The pool was great! Also close to the highway for our road trips around the island. Perfect for our 2 week stay.
Best of all, our hosts were lovely! We felt very welcome and comfortable. Maria Antonia was like our own personal concierge, with many tips and information. Places to see, places to eat, etc. We felt very welcome and comfortable. When Armando realized it was our 25th Wedding Anniversary, He and Maria shared a bottle of sparkling wine with us by the pool.

Maria, thanks so much for the orange cake recipe. I haven't made it for my mom yet, but I will let you know how she enjoys it.

With great affection and appreciation. Thanks so much for opening up your home to travellers!

“Unforgettable, amazing stay in a clean, fully equipped nice house, walking distance from downtown”

What an experience! We came from Sweden to spend two weeks on this legendary island of Sao Miguel, and to see the town of Ponta Delgada. We actually only needed a place to sleep and eat, since we would be exploring the place and the surroundings. But we got much more, far more than we would expect.
We were received by Maria, one of our hosts, with a warm smile, local bread and some local specialty she makes.
The kitchen was well equipped, we had our privacy. The swimming pool and Maria's garden were quite an experience, too. And the weather was perfect - you don't have to be lucky. The Sun shines every day. There may be a short shower, but don't worry. Those make this beautiful island so intensly green. The Sun will be back shortly, anyway.
What a pleasant surprise when we experienced the kindness, the hospitality and service mindedness of our hosts. They really offered far more than they needed to. Maria, a truly charming and sympathetic lady who is in charge of the two houses, demonstrated how wonderful one's stay can be when the hosts express genuine caring, warmth and friendliness. We don't take these qualities for granted. We could sense the love our hosts feel for their work.
We had a fully modern shower, modern kitchen with a new infrared stove, refrigerator with a small freezer inside, all necessary kitchen utensils, a micro, etc. Everything worked just fine.
Now that our time here is up, we actually don't feel like going back home :-( This place is a magnet.
