Being on Pico Island is like stepping back in time. It’s rugged and gorgeous. This home is one-of-a-kind, with interesting architecture common to the area. It’s right on the ocean and the homeowner mentioned he spear-fishes right out front. The home is clean, comfortable, and you can fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves.
You will definitely need to rent a car or scooter ahead of time as they book up in advance, and fly right to Pico if you can (via SATA). There isn’t much for public transportation there. There is a small store and bar within walking distance but you’ll want a car to go hiking and visit all the small villages. Bring good shoes and clothing for all weather. I got to witness a storm while there and it was incredible.
The expat couple who own the place live there and are very friendly and helpful world travelers. The woman shared a local honey liquer with me which was very strong but good!
You’ll never find another place like this! I will definitely be back.
