we had some issues about the cleaning of the house at the check in, but Luis behaved perfectly in order to fix this issue the very next day. For the rest, he was super responsive to every our demand, the house is big and in a perfect location in order to go in the city center walking, so in the end we really had a good experience staying in his house! They also have a wonderful movie collection, so no risk to get bored if someday you would like to just relax a bit in their beautiful living room!

What a great place. Wonderful location, everything you need is walking distance. The apartment is very spacious, clean and bright. Hosts where very welcoming and available for any questions we had. Would definitely return to the same apartment on our next visit to Ponta Delgada. Highly recommend!! Don't look any further. Thanks Luis & Margarida !

We had a great stay at Luis & Margarida's house. The location of the house is very good and we enjoyed to get to the harbor, restaurants and other good places by foot.

This house is a really nice place that is conveniently located on a residential street in Ponta Delgada that allows you to have a relatively quiet place to stay and hang out while only being a 5-10 minute walk from multiple shops, bars, and the large public market which is just a few minutes away. The space is spacious and would easily sleep 6-8 people, but also didn't feel excessive for a couple. It is either a short taxi ride, or a 20 second walk from the airport shuttle stop, and about 5 minutes to the marina. The kitchen has the basics for preparing and cooking meals, so that you can easily cut back on some eating out if you should so desire. The DVD collection is also quite robust and allows for some quiet nights in. The back patio is great for sitting out in the evenings (or mornings), and had a great view of the old church, some rolling hills, and a peek of the ocean all at once. Luis was very communicative, and answered any questions we had very quickly - he was also very kind to allow us to drop our bags off a bit early (our flight got in around 7AM) so that we didn't have to wheel them around town while we waited for the space to be readied for our 'official' check in. This space is highly recommended for anyone wanting to visit Sao Miguel/Ponta Delgada and stay close to the action while still having a quiet place to rest and relax.

Luis & Margarida User ProfileLuis & Margarida is a superhost.

Just a regular guy, wife, two kids, worked at McCann Erickson and Fischer America before opting to live in paradise. Founded HDG Azores, wrote a children's book dedicated to Frederica, the girl of the family and the oldest one. I like to play tennis, cook and read. And all the time I have left is to make you feel welcome in my house and in the Azores.
