Incredible, beautiful, wonderful place to stay. So unique and with the most breathtaking views and the loveliest hosts. We read the extensive and positive comments in the guestbook and echo them all - this place is a true paradise and we would recommend it to anyone.

Staying in the cottage was one of the highlights of a fantastic to trip to the amazing Azores. Susanne was a very thoughtful host, and very accommodating. We would, and will, highly recommend the watermill and the Azores! Obrigados Susanne!!!

Mae d'Agua - Riverside Cottage is a great place for a quiet break surrounded on 2 sides by water, up a track, it feels isolated but is within easy walking distance of the centre of town and is in the centre of the island so driving anywhere on Sao Miguel from the cottage is quick and easy. Susanne is next door if you need help but doesn't intrude. Can recommend this cosy individual cottage if you want to get away from it all.

A genuine gem, fabulous hosts in a rare location, a unique experience. It is over running water so be prepared for occasional Mosquitos, though nets are provided.

What a truly wonderful place in all respects! Fabulous location, lovely self contained home beautifully renovated and kitted out with everything we needed, and very comfortable. And Susanne is so helpful and welcoming and just knows exactly what her guests need. I can wholeheartedly recommend this gem of a place and will be back! Thankyou!

These islands are magical and very beautiful. The cottage is the perfect place to stay in a wonderful location. Susanne, Jan and Paula (the dog) are also very friendly and great hosts. Susanne is also a lifesaver as I forgot my sunglasses and she very kindly posted them back to me - thank you so much! The cottage has everything and fits the landscape and ethos of the island so well, I can't think of anywhere I'd rather stay on the island and anytime I return I would have no second thoughts about checking the availability here first. I can't wait to come back soon.
