An Unexpected Find

Posted Sep 5, 2014
Pros: The cottage was well appointed and the kitchen had everything we needed to make a few home-cooked meals. And the garden was fun to explore!
Cons: Detailed directions to the hotel from the airport (you can't get there using Google Maps).
My family and I decided to spend a couple of days exploring Sao Miguel, the largest island in Azores, Portugal. During my search for a hotel on Expedia I happened across the Quinta das Acácias Guest Houses, which had an impressive 5-out-of-5 rating. And this is in spite of their unique policy to have guests clean their own houses. Intrigued, I decided to try them out. Within a couple of hours of booking my stay, I received an email from Bonita, who manages the hotel. She provided directions to the hotel and answered all of the questions that I had before we started our trip. When we arrived at our "hotel," Bonita was waiting for us. She showed us to our small house/cottage, which was nestled within an elaborate garden (lovingly managed by Ed, Bonita's husband). After we got settled, Bonita then gave us the rundown of all the sights we could see during our 3-day vacation. Since our house had a full kitchen, we were also told were to get groceries if we decided to cook some of our own meals. And although our house was small, it had more than enough room to comfortably fit my wife, daughter, and me. It would be an understatement to say that we enjoyed out stay. If we had any questions or requests, they were addressed quickly. And Bonita and Ed were very friendly and willing to do whatever they could to help make our trip more enjoyable. More importantly, this hotel was an unexpected and pleasant discovery during our vacation. We will definitely be staying here again!

Cottage Paradise

Posted Aug 19, 2010
Beautiful small cottage property. Well cared for gardens. Superb value. Make your own meals and coffee. We stayed for 6 nights and explored the entire island. The hosts are super friendly and very helpful recommending restaurants. You will need a car. No air conditioning...but it is not needed. No pool...but you can swim just about anywhere in the Azores. No daily housekeeping...we didn't need it. We would definitely return here and would highly recommend it to others.

Thank you Mickey for your nice review. Our self catered accommodations allows guests to enjoy their homes at their own speed. No one to bother them while they remove all stress. Populo beach with restaurant is just 2km away through the village of Livramento. Sculptures by Eduino M. Sousa are only available to enjoy in this private gated gardens in all of the Azores. We look forward to you returning again in the future.
