The house is situated in an unique place: the protected nature reserve of Caloura in São Miguel island, with its own particular microclimate. Inside a modern condominium, with a contemporary architecture and a careful maintenance, it also provides its residents two swimming pools with stunning sea views during the summer period and a tennis court.
Around the house there are pleasant gardens and lawns, as well as in all surrounding areas.
Nearby you can find the traditional fishing port of Caloura (diving and whale watching available), the volcanic sand beach of Caloura and the village of Água de Pau, famous for its festivals and processions. There you can find grocery stores, shops and markets.
Due to its location is the ideal place from which to explore the magnificent island of São Miguel or just to enjoy the quiet, climate and the breathtaking landscape of Caloura.

Sara's home was a wonderful base for a week in Sao Miguel. She had someone meet us at the gate and lead us to the unit. The complex was a bit difficult to find at first. I'd recommend Google mapping Aparthotel Do Mirante Caloura before arriving. The home was as described and very spacious. Kitchen was equipped with enough to make a few meals from home. There is only a Nespresso machine and no pods and nowhere that we could find to buy them. If coffee is your thing in the morning you'll need to create a makeshift system or head out. Besides that I would definitely recommend this home for anyone making the trip to the Azores and hope to visit again one day myself.
wunderbares Haus mit viel Platz auf zwei Etagen und schönem Blick aufs Meer. Zentrale Lage an der sonnigen Südküste, ideal schnell zur Caloura Bar und zum Strand. Eine tolle Dachterasse und in der Hauptsaison auch ein schöner Pool.
Dealing with Sara was great. She's prompt to reply and very easy to work with.
Overall, the condo was very clean, modern and spacious, and everything was as described. It was a touch difficult to find the actual condo, as most of the units in the complex aren't marked with an address. A quick conversation with a resident had us on track in no time though.
Although the location is a bit remote (I'd suggest a rental car), you are walking distance to Hotel Caloura and a reasonable hike to the wonderful Bar Caloura, where you'll find an amazing ocean water pool and some of the freshest fish on Sao Miguel. The local beach in Caloura is certainly among the best on the whole island.
The condo's pool area is pretty run down (pics here must be pretty old), but the water does seem to be maintained on a fairly regular basis. Our boys had no issues with regular swims.
We really enjoyed our time here and would certainly have no hesitation renting from Sara again.
Had a great stay at Sara's house in Caloura for a few days. The house has a very spacious living area, and the balcony and pool views are unreal. Tricky to find at first, but I got the hang of it quickly. Would definitely love to stay here again for a longer period of time.
We stayed at the casa for four nights. Sara had a couple of her friends meet us at the house and show us around. Sara and her friends were all very nice and accommodating. The house itself was wonderful. Probably way more room than the two of us needed, but it was well worth the money. The house was clean, very well decorated and safe. There was also a garage for our car which was very nice. We would definitely stay again, thanks so much Sara!
Really nice and comfortable accomodation. Friendly and helpful people, warm welcome.
Our flight got delayed so we arrived late at night; there was bread and cheese and fruit waiting for us which was great since we had no time to buy our own food and we were travelling with kids.
The house was very nice and clean, we found everything that we needed. I would definitely go there again.

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 city of Lisbon, with tips, good advice and helpful insights.
