Come stay in our newly renovated Azores luxury rental properties on São Miguel Island. Unit 1 is two bedrooms and has access to our amazing garden. Unit 2 is one bedroom with original volcanic arches. They are a short walk to Ponta Delgada’s city center and many amazing restaurants.
Our space is different than many rental apartments on Sao Miguel. You’ll find comfortable beds (with 100% cotton sheets), a washer and dryer (Unit 1 has a dryer), heating/cooling units, and well-equipped kitchens. Also, unlike much of the city center, our street is still home to many locals providing a more authentic experience. Finally, our house is solar powered (see below for our sustainability goals).
As added enticement, it’s only a 4.5 hour direct flight from Boston, and you can get a free stopover on the way to mainland Portugal (flight details). Learn more about the Azores and the best time to visit (spoiler alert: the shoulder and off season are a great times and it’s great for kids). If you stay at our house, you’ll get a 50% discount off the Travel Honey Azores guides and 25% off Travel Honey Trips and Travel Honey Trips Lite (assuming there are 4 people in Unit 2 or 2 people in Unit 1). See pricing for the units here. Email email@example.com if you’re interested in renting!

In both building and operating our house, we have tried to be as eco-friendly as possible. The house is powered by solar panels, and the hot water heaters and heating/cooling units are powered by energy-efficient heat pumps. We hope to add a composting system soon.
We’ve tried to use local materials when possible. The kitchen tiles are handmade in the nearby town of Lagoa and the terra cotta tiles are made in mainland Portugal. The furniture is all handmade made by local artisans, including some by Arrisca, which is a non-profit who employs economically and socially disadvantaged Azoreans to make furniture.
Solar panels powering the house
The house is located in Ponta Delgada and is walking distance to the city center. There is a wonderful restaurant a few doors down, and most of the other tasty restaurants in Ponta Delgada are within a 15 minute walk. Our street is lively and full of friendly locals who have been wonderful to us during the renovation project.
