“Charming Home”
Reviewed 10 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Our recent trip to the Azores was wonderfully enhanced by our stay at this charming home.
We enjoyed a taste of the rural countryside in a rustic setting. I found the country kitchen to be an inspiration due to a marvelous gas stove with electric oven and my partner perfected his fire-making skills utilizing the heatilator-fireplace which created ambience while taking the winter chill out of the air. The owner, Manuel, is a friendly host who provided many herbs and a wood supply, and will offer additional services such as fresh eggs & meal preparation. The photos on trip advisor are true to the home, beautiful grounds and vistas, vaulted ceilings with original timber, modern bathroom facilities, etc.
I recommend this choice to gain an appreciation of the island.

“A charming 300yr old farmhouse with modern amenities”
Reviewed 21 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We chose this as our second stop in our 10day trip in Sao Miguel after staying in a beachfront house in Moinhos. We chose this place mainly for our kids who love animals. We weren't disappointed. The kids absolutely enjoyed the animals. We went in December and the heaters and towel warmers were a blessing. The natural fireplace in the living room, the full size kitchen, the spacious bedrooms were all a plus. The house has the master bedroom upstairs and two guest bed (with disability access) downstairs.

About the place: It is located about 1/2 hr away from Ponta Delgada near Fenais da Luz in residential areas. There are grocery stores nearby (Spar) and Sol Mar supermarket where you get everything under the sol(!). Even though there is no direct beachview, we had no complaints since the grounds are well manicured and it was a different experience altogether. Mosteiros and and Sete Cidades are nearby.

The pictures listed are 100% accurate and the house looks exactly like what is listed. Nothing more, nothing less. The owner, Manuel lives right in the same compound and easily reachable and was very helpful and answered all emails before the trip. Directions to the place was fairly easy. Overall, a nice experience.

“Highly Recomended”
Reviewed 20 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

A group of us stayed for about a week on Sao Miguel and it was an unforgettable experience. The island is very unspoiled and the people are some of the nicest I've encountered on earth. This includes Manuel the property owner who went above and beyond to make sure we had the best possible vacation. His years of experience in the hotel industry definitely shows as he certainly knows how to take care of guests. The property is very well kept and has everything you could need. Large bedrooms (the master has a great view of the ocean), a comfortable living room and great kitchen.
The location is outside of town, but that makes even more lovely as its peaceful and very easy to get anywhere on the island with a car anyway. I'd recommend Sao Miguel to anyone who loves nature and is looking for a peaceful vacation. I'd recommend Quinta dos Afectos to anyone coming to the island who doesn't mind being a little outside of town.

“Fantastic home.”

The two of us were pleased to no end with this very spacious, well appointed 300 year old farmhouse which had all the amenities one would expect to find a four star hotel. Extra large high quality bathrooms and very comfortable beds.
The owners have been the perfect hosts to us.
The location is rural, quiet and close to the ocean , the property is a little bit of Eden even in January.
Fortunately Sao Miguel has not been spoiled by mass tourism. ( yet)
There are so many remarkable places to see and experience and on our next visit we will stay for a month.
