We (my husband, my son and I) spent 5 nights at Rita's place. Pros: Location - fabulous!, plenty of free parking right in front of the door, quiet, clean. Rita is a great host, she provides you with tons of information: things to do in Furnas, places to visit, restaurants... She prepared a travel bed for our 2,5 y.o. son, beach towels etc. We had a daily cleaning service which was unexpected and appreciated. The garden is really nice, especially for a breakfast. Cons: The apartment that once was very nicely decorated needs a serious facelift. In the bathroom water drains poorly both from the sink and the tub, split hot-cold water faucets look nice, but are really unpractical. I believe that they already started a renovation, but for us personally it meant quite a lot of noise during the day and contractors walking back and forth in front our garden door. One more negative point: when we arrived at 4pm (after a long flight), the apartment was still not ready and we could get in only around 5:30pm.

Thank you, Irina. Yes, the renovation work has already started and I very much regret the movement of workers and the disturbance during the day.

It was a wonderful experience! Rita is very very kind and precise and the house is amazing, clean and in a very good position to visit Furnas and the eastern part of the island. Having breakfast in the garden is something unforgattable. We surely suggest Rita and her accomodation!

Lovely place to stay with a very tranquil garden shared with other guests. The well equipped kitchen and shared laundry facilities were both very useful. Rita was away but her housekeeper checked us in and cleaned the flat for us and was lovely.

Rita & Luis thank you so much! we really enjoy our time at your place. My friend and I stayed at Rita & Luis's place. The place was dreamy, very pleasant, with large garden. The house was very clean, and neat. The house is located in the heart of Furnas, There is a supermarket and restaurants a 2-3 minute walk, very convenient! I highly recommend the Rita & Luis's place.

Rita and Luis' apartment was great. The location was perfect to be able to walk around in Furnas, close to the grocery stores, tourism office, and some restaurants. It had a lovely garden that you share with one or two other apartments. There's as well a washing machine in case you need to use it. The conversations with Rita were easy and she was available. Although she wasn't there when we arrived she arranged it so Dercilia, the housekeeper, could greet us and show us the place.

The house was in a great location and we loved having the back garden to sit out and enjoy the sun and a glass of wine!

We were welcomed by Dercilia, who is very helpful and nice. The house was clean and charming. The garden so cool! It was an extraordinary holiday, also because we found this house. The only problem we have, was with tha wifi that does not work very well (we were able to connect with the laptop only, and not with the phone). Thank you Dercilia, thank you Rita!

We are brother and sister sharing this holiday house in the Azores and running it together.
We live most of the year in mainland Portugal, just to finally find pleasure a few days a year in this volcanic paradise of the Azores. Here, we like to totally disconnect going back to the simple life of our childhood holidays. The Azores islands are the proof that there are still places on this planet where you can loose yourself in nature, swim in the warm waters of a deep blue ocean while interacting with authentic and friendly people.
We love to share our love for the Azores and although we might not be present to receive you, one of us will always be available by phone or email to give you directions and suggestions. We will do our best so your time in our house exceeds your best expectations.
