Charming setting, clean comfortable well-equiped space and welcoming helpful hosts. We highly recommend staying with with John and Eldi.
One of the best travel experiences we have had in many countries and many private apartment style bookings. João and Eldi go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable and the pride they take in their property and your experience is inspiring.
Everything is clean, well kept, they provide you with clean towels each day, the garden is beautiful and yours to assist with any meals or snacks you might want to prepare. We had fresh oranges and eggs each morning.
The location is perfect, close to what you need but a little retreat from the main city. Restaurants on the Capelas side of the island are less touristy and crowded. If you want to get back to Ponta Delgada it's just 12 minutes away.
I cannot capture, in words or pictures, the magnificent beauty of São Miguel. I can say that our stay at a Quinta dos Sentidos made it that much more memorable.
The place is absolutely amazing. The accommodation was very clean and cosy. We loved the traditional decor, and everything was designed and hand made by owners with extreme attention to detail.
We have been shown around the lovely gardens and explained how to get the most out our time on the island.
We were able to use all the facilities around the property like bbq, etc, and help ourselves to fresh fruit and veg from the garden.
Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly. It was an absolute pleasure to stay at Quinta dos Sentidos.
We would definitely recommend this place to anyone, especially to couples who seek peace and quiet.
Best holiday ever!!!

We stayed at two other AirBnB's on this island, and this was the best. We wish we stayed here the whole time. If we could give them 10 stars for communication, we would. They really take the time to answer all your questions, assist with car rentals and give you detailed directions. They put their heart and soul into the design and decoration of this place. It truly is an extension of themselves. The garden is charming and we appreciated the access to fruits and vegetables. Their location is close to the airport and is very central to all the main things you want to see on Sao Miguel. You will be in good hands if you stay here. We are going to recommend our friends and family to come visit the Azores and we were going to encourage them to stay with John and Eldibranda
Wow! We genuinely don't quite know how to begin in describing our beautiful week at The 5 Senses Garden with Eldibranda and John. So we'll start by saying that it was pure bliss! The spacious old wine shed conversion is modern, extremely clean and equipped with absolutely every home comfort you could wish for. Neat kitchen, great wet room type shower with fabulous water pressure, quirky original wine producing features (barrels etc) which were such a lovely touch. The exquisite garden sprawling out back and up a hill with very tasty organic fruit and veg as far as the eye can see seems to be a labour of love for the hosts. They're down to just a few grape trees now from an entire vineyard but we were lucky enough to sample a special grape juice which was utterly divine and a fun experience to see it break free from a barrel! The island is amazing, but you'll learn that for yourselves. It was great to have a car but as John said to us- take your time, feel the place. Don't be in too much of a hurry. There are some wonderful experiences to be had but these steep better at a leisurely pace. As hosts, Eldibranda and John are gentle, warm and they both seem to glean happiness from sharing their special place with appreciating souls- and trust us, you'll appreciate every inch of the environment they've created. They went above and beyond to make us feel at home. They patiently stayed up late for us when our flight was delayed, sorted a hassle-free local hire car for us, welcomed us into their immaculately clean and thoughtfully restored accommodation and made us feel completely at ease. They had even stocked the fridge with some essentials which was very welcome as our arrival was late. We are staggered at how smoothly the entire trip went. Don't hesitate just book and go! Incredible value and every detail thought of. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
