Traumhafter Ausblick auf das Meer/Küste von der Terrasse, sehr nette Vermieter, 5 Gehminuten zum Strand, Gute Ausstattung (Spülmaschine/Waschmaschine etc.) und saubers Ambiente. Einziges Manko ab und an gab es Kakerlakenbesuch.

We have just returned from this property having never been to the Azores before. If you like clubs lots of restaurants and all mod con's then this place is not for you. However if you like peace and quiet stunning scenery and are willing to drive through some pretty narrow and steep streets into little villages then this is your perfect destination. The house has everything you need to cater for yourselves and is very clean. The only downside was this house was advertised with two bathrooms but this is actually incorrect. It has one full bathroom downstairs and a hot water shower on a balcony on the lower balcony. This was disappointing as there is only 1 toilet, so you do have to go downstairs at night. I thought this may have been more of an issue as there was five of family and friends in our party but we managed. It's a typical Portuguese house and it soon felt like home. There are very few choices of restaurants nearby so we did cook on several occasions and had a couple of barbecue's. The balcony is lovely to sit and eat breakfast and watch the rollers come in on Mohinos beach. There are some lovely walks nearby and some stunning scenery It's like going back in time in most of the villages we wondered why we could not get fresh milk In the supermarkets as the island is covered in cows but it's delivered to residents early in the morning in milk churns on horses or flat bed trucks. An eye opener for us Manchester folk who take most things for granted these days. Overall we had a lovely holiday in this relaxing beautiful place, Give it try you won't be sorry!

Las islas Azores, además de otras muchas cosas, puede ser un destino de playa muy especial, muy diferente de otros destinos más populares (es cuestión de gustos). Moinhos es una bella playa de arenas grises, en una pequeña bahía con unas pocas casas, entre pastos y vegetación salvaje. Tiene un café con especialidad en hamburguesas y un pequeño restaurante suministrado por los pescadores locales. Tiene mucho del carácter de la isla, y un mar algo agitado, quizás no apto para niños pequeños y personas que no sepan nadar (enseguida se llega a un escalón que te hace perder pie). La casa se encuentra a tan solo 5 minutos de la playa, aunque la pendiente exige algo de esfuerzo. Se aparca en la acera y en cuesta, lo cual el primer día, con el coche de alquiler, puede ser algo problemático. El mar se ve y escucha cerca desde cualquiera de su 3 terrazas situadas en 3 pisos diferentes. La del piso principal tiene toldo, mesa y sillas, tumbonas, barabacoa. Tiene salón abierto a cocina, 3 dormitorios cómodos y un solo baño, aunque la terraza inferior tiene una ducha exterior que evita llenar de arena el baño. La casa es muy agradable, y esta equipada más que como un alojamiento turístico, como una vivienda, con todo lo que se puede necesitar (y más). La localización no solo es buena por la playa y el entorno, sino también por la cercanía de Ribeira Grande (no perderse la playa de Santa Barbara) y de las atracciones de la isla (la mayor parte en un radio de 30 minutos). La gestión del establecimiento es muy profesional y atenta. La atención de un incidencia con el agua caliente, fue casi inmediata. El precio nos pareció muy bueno para lo que se ofrece.
