I don't even know where to start but I had the most wonderful experience with Rimi and joao. Two wonderful people that work hard at taking care of there people. If your into yoga or just need to find yourself please please try this place and let Rimi bring calm and peace into your life with all her teaching of yoga and mindfulness. The grounds are so beautiful and peaceful too. The pool is always clear and beautiful. The staff is spectacular at taking care of there guests. One person especially is Luis who is your to go guy if u want to know anything and everything about Sao miguuel. His English is amazing and for a young man he had more knowledge then most people. If your planning to go to Sao Miguel u must stay here. Oh yea one important person I forgot, moo there dog. The most entertaining dog and welcoming one too. Even if u dont like dogs u will fall in love. Thankyou to Rimi and joao and the whole staff. I will never forget this experience.

This was one of my favorite Airbnb stays! The room was stunning right off the pool with a beautiful rooftop terrace above our room. There are large grounds to explore and very scenic off the property as well. Also felt very safe. We walked back from dinner every night around midnight without issue. There are a lot of extras you can choose to partake in such as yoga, a delicious group dinner on Friday, breakfast every morning, as well as guided hikes. Rimi was very helpful in getting us set up with reservations at amazing restaurants, whale watching tours, and pointing us in the right direction for so many things to do and see on the island. It is a great central location and there are many excellent restaurants within walking distance. Highly recommend!

The property was incredible and the room charming and perfectly clean. Rimi and Joao are experts on the island so there's no better place to stay if you want to experience Sao Miguel to its fullest. The personalized guidebooks they provide to guests are 10x better than anything you can find at a bookstore. Location is also great to get to many places on the eastern or western half of the island in a reasonable amount of time, and a 15 minute drive to the airport.

Rimi was great has a host. Whether we needed advice on fun activities or looking for dinner recommendations, Rimi would go out of her way to ensure you were taken care of. The place was lovely and in an ideal location. I would definitely recommend staying here and hope to visit the island again soon.

We had a great stay at the Orchard Lodge. The lodge is fairly central on the island, so you are well situated for day-trips around Sao Miguel. Be sure to take part in their optional hiking/cooking experiences as they made the trip that much better! We arrived early in the morning from our red-eye flight, and Rimi allowed us an early check-in which was awesome, and very well communicated. There are several restaurants within either a nice walk, or close drive, as well as the Centro grocery store a close drive away.

Rimi and João were exceptional hosts and the cozy apartment in the beautiful residence offers everything one needs. Breakfast is good and includes local foods and fruits from the garden, but could be a little more diverse. Would definitely come again.
