The house dates from the early 20th century, with italian architectural lines. It opened in 2015 with a modern touch. It has 5 bedrooms, from bunk beds with shared bathrooms, to suites with private bathrooms. Overlooking the mountains and the sea.

The space

A Casa da Cascata GuestHouse opened to the public on July the 1st, of 2015, after an architectural rehabilitation of 4 months. It is a House that dates from the early 20th century, of an italian architectural current . It's divided on 3 levels, with original floors and high ceilings. We kept as much of the original, but modernize it in favor of its new use and users.
The rooms and suites can be rented individually, with shared common areas: two bathrooms, kitchen, living room, gallery and outdoor space with barbecue area.

The house has a view on one hand to the main monuments of the city, Largo Gaspar Frutuoso and mountains. On the other side overlooks the north shore of the island, the sea and the sunset and sunrise.

It's a very unique place and well located in the historic city center, next to the Main Street, shops, services, events, beaches and pools.

The house dates from around 1907 and was designed by the architect Ayla Antonio Sanches, the same architect of the biggest show house in the Azores, the Micaelense Colosseum, built in 1917.
With italian architectural lines it distinguishes by its facade features with reliefs, textures and gables, bays arched doors, windows, breathing grills, wrought balconies and verandas (wood and iron), foot high duties and well house divided and illuminated.
Ayla Antonio Sanches was himself a disciple of the great engineer Gustave Eiffel ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)), author of the Eiffel Tower project for the Universal Exhibition of 1889, and co-author of the Statue of Liberty (1886). Both came to live in Portugal, where he designed buildings attached to it.
His whole building stands in relation to its surroundings, by the grandeur and beauty that has, with no doubt, of architectural interest, historical, cultural, and tourism.

A special place in a paradise in the middle of the Atlantic.

Guest access

Interaction with guests

As a hostess I will welcome guests and help them with everything necessary, from issues related to their stay, as with everything they may need. I am always available and accessible at any time.

Other things to note

Great location for visiting the island, because of it location in the middle of Sao Miguel Island, in the north coast.

And in Ponta Delgada, only 20 minutes away, the Feast of the Holy Christ, the pineapple plantations, etc.

The house is absolutely gorgeous and very centrally located. It's right in a square and 1 block from the main town center. Vanessa was helpful and offered suggestions about activities and places to eat. I highly recommend.

A Casa da Cascata tem a fachada verde menta. Por dentro é branca nas paredes altas e em soalho de madeira antiga. Mantiveram as carpintarias antigas o que lhe dá a senhoridade que o tempo impõe. Tem um pátio muito agradável. As escadas interiores vencem o pé direito elevado confortavelmente. A cozinha é pratica é muito funcional e as casas de banho também. A decoração é simples e de muito bom gosto. Os anfitriões recebem muito bem e fazem nos sentir em casa.
