Even of we never met Gena the check in/out were smooth and easy. The Property Manager was waiting for us and gave us a brief tour of the flat. The flat has fantastic views of the Atlantic and Monte Brasil. The terrace is huge and you can enjoy breakfast outside in the morning sun and a glass of wine in the evening. The flat is very comfortable and has all modern facilities you can expect in a new build. It is comfortable and ideal for a short or longer stay. The only downs are that there is no wi-fi and apart from some hand soap there is no supplies like salt, pepper, oil & vinegar, dish washer tablets, ... As we only stayed 3 nights but wanted to cook we had to buy all of them. Having said that, these are minor downs compared to the value you get for your money. Gena also provides some good tips about restaurants in the area. Overall we had a fantastic stay :)

Response from Gena:
Thank you for taking the time to leave your kind comments Aurelien. You had mentioned that there is no Wi-Fi, however, I wanted to make a correction to that statement. As stated on our listing, we do offer Wi-Fi upon request for an additional charge. In regards to having some basic supplies (salt, pepper, etc.), we've decided to take your comment into consideration and provide our guests with a "starter pack". As you mentioned, our condo is offered at a great value; we try and keep our pricing low so that more people can experience our beautiful location and only pay for what they use/need. This is why we can not include spices, oils, detergents, etc. for the duration of our guests' stay; otherwise we would have to charge more. In the end, the comments our guests leave only help us come up with ways to make a stay in our condo even more amazing, so thank you again for taking the time and thank you for inspiring the "starter pack".

Perfect place to settle in on the island. The location was great with a car and we drove all around the island. Gena was easy to work with and Ana checked us in and was so gracious and helpful. We were two couples and the condo had two bathrooms and 2 bedrooms with comfortable beds and a wonderful deck to sit out and eat with a beautiful view.

First of all, pictures do not do this apartment justice! It was spacious and super clean inside. When you open the doors to the porch area the view is breathtaking! We spent every morning on the balcony, even the foggy mornings. When we came back from being out all day, we enjoyed wine and cheese outside. Truly peaceful! This is a gated condominium type complex, which made for easy parking, two spots! Ana checked us in and out and she was so kind and a pleasure to talk with. Gena, the host was attentive to all my questions, getting back to me very quickly. We will be back to Terceira and I already told my husband that's where I want to stay!!! Thank you so much!

we were met by a representative who opened the unit and showed us around. This is a modern ground floor unit with two bedrooms right next to the ocean. Close to restaurants, and recreation. The two bathrooms make it easy for two couples to stay with lots of room to spread out. Parking is easy.

Sold our business and most our belongings to move to the Azores and explore what else the world has in store for us. For now, my husband runs our dairy farm, I am a holistic health coach, and during our spare time we discover the simple beauties of the island.

We also offer our "Happy Cow" tour for FREE to our Airbnb guests. Those of you that can't be our house guest, but would like to partake in the tour, feel free to send me a message and I would be happy to provide you with details.
