Spaceous house, with nice oceanview from the balcony. We had lovely evenings there. Poolarea is nice. Also with great oceanviews! Sometimes a bit crowdy.
Unfortunately the house is quite damp. Especially the first days it had a bad smell.
The interieur is just like the pictures. The washingmachine a bit rusty, but it works. No dryer.
Thank you for your comments. We always appreciate our guests feedback. Nevertheless, we would like to clear some of the points you have highlighted. Firstly, the island has a semi-tropical weather, with a high percentage of humidity (normally above 90%), so the smell you felt is only a reflection of that. The fact the house is located near the sea also increases the humidity. That's why our guests have a air dehumidification equipment at their disposal inside the house. About the rusty washing machine (the rust is only external) I must say it is also connected with the high level of humidity. All electronic devices in the island have a short life because of this.
A estadia na casa da Sara foi excelente.
Começou com uma comunicação muito fácil e direta com a Sara que sempre mostrou muita (website hidden) chegada a casa fomos surpreendidos com a amabilidade dos proprietários que nos deixaram alguns artigos típicos dos Acores.
A casa é super espaçosa e com tudo o que é essencial para uma excelente estadia.
We had a very nice experience staying at the Casa da Caloura. The location is quiet and perfect for a family vacation.
This house is an excellent choice to stay in S. Miguel. The location is great to explore the island and it's a wonderful location by itself.
The house is like you see in the pictures - if not better - so me and my family could only have a great experience there.
The village is about 10 mins walking from the house, with nice restaurants, cooking excellent traditional dishes.
People from the house - mister Jorge - were very kind too and gave us a handful of great tips!
If I have to comeback to the island, this will be the place to stay. No doubts about it!
It was perfect!! Everything was organized nicely by the landlord and lady, they were really nice, showed us the place, helped us find the way there, and they were ready even though we got there a bit earlier then expected.
They also had a food basket for us with typical stuff from azores (cheese, cookies, pineapple..) which was so kind of them, we loved it! The house itself also was amazing, really big, lots of light and space, new furniture, everything clean, we even had an italian coffee machine! Towels are included, we just needed to ask if we wanted more or needed something else, they were really helpful and forthcoming.
We had an amazing time there, both the island and the house were awesome!
Wundervolles Haus mit ausreichend Platz zum Wohlfühlen und zwei Terrassen. Freunde von Sara haben uns herzlich in Empfang genommen und haben uns alles gezeigt. Es empfiehlt sich definitiv ein Mietwagen, um das Haus zu erreichen. Die Lage ist aber absolut perfekt für Tagesausflüge in alle Ecken der Insel. Wir, vier Erwachsene und ein Baby, haben uns allesamt wohlgefühlt und können Saras Haus absolut weiterempfehlen.

About the Host, Sara
I love to travel and I've lived many years abroad, so I gathered a lot of foreign friends that come and say hello every now and then. That's why I am almost a professional tourist guide! I will help you to discover the lovely island of São Miguel, with tips, good advice and helpful insights.
