Description

Welcome to our humble refuge. This cozy home has provided shelter for generations in this peaceful coastal fishing village.  Today is no exception if you are searching for a peaceful getaway from the modern busy world you live in.  

Enjoy this comfortable yet modest 3 bedroom Stonehouse. This home can be your escape into your emotional well being.  Open your mind and senses to the sea at your back door.

 Take advantage of the terrace for your entire day´s activities… breakfast, then that delicious second cup of coffee and a book, maybe a pre-lunch nap in the morning sun, and then it is time for lunch. 

 Ah lunch!  Now, remember where you are.  It is not familiar ground.  Sounds different, smells different, and feels different.  This can take some planning, but, you know what?  It is worth it!  Take a white baguette.  Not just a white flour thing that came out of the oven brown on the outside. No.  It has to look like a pale baguette that has never been sun tanned.  Slice and open it lengthways and spread mayonnaise.  Not too much, even if you are a mayo lover, you need to hold from this temptation.  You spread just enough to taste the tang.  Next, lay thin slices of fresh medium ripe tomato, followed by our famous Azorean St. Jorge cheese, the sharp version.  Finally the secret ingredient that combines the moment, the atmosphere, the sea and old Europe……fresh, garden grown like nature intended it – basil.  Accompanied with a side of olives, not the salty green ones the bigger the better, or the ones stuffed with the pimento that look like a Christmas ornament.  No.  Look for the container that says mixed olives.  They are funny looking, different sizes, pale-greenish brown, purple and black.  But, they have the olive oil flavor in them.  Frame this lunch composition with an Azorean wine that will complete the moment.  Produced in Pico, grown and nurtured in the lava rocks and bathed by the Atlantic sun…….Terras de Lava white 2009 or 2011, red 2011.

Enjoy the peaceful moments of high tide and splash away your tensions in the natural pool.

Finish your perfect day with a BBQ and dinner on the terrace.
Conclude your dinner by watching the sunset on the ocean while savoring the fruity flavors of our Azorean wines or sipping our famous port wine from mainland Portugal.

And to cap it all, reflect on your day as you lay your head on the pillow and allow the murmurs of the ocean at your window soothe yourself peacefully to sleep.

Make your reservation early to avoid disappointment!

Don´t forget to try the natural pools amongst black lava rock just a short walk from this house!
Winter cool season- portable heater and wood stove available. Firewood is extra cost.

Thank you Bonita for a wonderful stay! We loved the beautiful green countryside with all the cows and goats, the pasture-milking was a great revelation we could surely use in the United States. We explored everywhere, and will be back soon.

We had a lovely stay at the Stonehouse and enjoyed the natural pool and the beach. We enjoyed hiking around Sete Cidades and followed our hike with a trip to 4 Plantanos on the north of the island, which was very good. We loved the view, sunsets and the climate...

We arrived at the Stonehouse after many flight delays and with no luggage so it was not a great start to our trip. We stepped through the door and we immediately saw the magnificent view, heard the ocean, took a deep breath and relaxed a bit. The cottage was the perfect size for our family of three. We tend to get three rooms now when we rent because my son is 16 and my husband snores so that third bedroom is a place I can escape to if needed. The kitchen was nicely appointed and the bathroom was quite large for the size of the house. The deck, the upper deck and the hammock are all wonderful places to relax and enjoy the seascape view of Mosterios. And take the many steps down the cliff for a swim in an amazing man-made, ocean-fed pool that rises and descends with the tide. The cottage was very clean. I am a clean freak and have cleaned other rentals before using them but I did not feel I had to clean anything at this cottage. The washer and dryer are very handy, especially to wash towels after a beach trip or a trip to one of the many hot spring pools around the island. I wish the beds were softer. All three of us prefer soft beds and two of them were quite hard. And I would have preferred more than one extra very small trash bag. We ended up having to purchase aluminum foil, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. It would have been nice if the owners left more than a half roll of paper towels and more than one roll of TP. *One big thing people should know is that the road to Mosterios is very, very, very winding and you cannot easily or quickly get from there to other parts of the island fast, no matter that it says point B is only 13 miles away. That's like a 50 minute trip on these roads. We wouldn't have traded in the cute cottage and amazing views but it was not exactly convenient to get to other parts of the island. All and all, our family really enjoyed our trip to Sao Miguel and to the Stonehouse.

Amazing oceanfront location with the ultimate luxury - private access to a natural waterfront pool. Very few available on the entire island! Used it every day. Clean, well equipped house with restaurants and mini grocery nearby. Walking trails nearby. Hot spring and spa a short drive away. Mesmerizing scenery that will burn memories into your mind. Enjoy!

Jaw dropping once you open the door and look through the windows! Driving down the road the anticipation is quite thrilling. The view down the street just before you park looking down to the pink water fountain at the end of the road is very photogenic. Once you walk in the Stone House and look through the windows out to the sea you can't help but to drop your bags and run out the door to the patio and be memorized by the power and beauty of your view. The town and surrounding area has a view at just about every corner. Slow down and at not only the big picture, but also the small one. The Azores has so much to offer.

We arrived in the village of Mosteiros coming down the hills with dramatic views of the ocean. to arrive at the Stonehouse and see the absolutely amazing view off the terrace to find out that it was all ours for the week! Locals were great, foods were fantastic, wine was endless, sunsets were great. Wind was blowing hard. Natural pool below was fantastic in the sunshine "63F. Very cold when it came out. Unable to do a free dive to the heave winds/rain. But had fantastic time exploring the area. Would definitely come back again! Warwick USA

What a lovely place to spend our lst 5 nights on this lovely island! This is a special house by the sea with very good vibes and positive energy. Every day, we sit out and discovered new things. The outdoor agricultural market near Ribeira Grande was very interesting on Thursday. It had Gypsy feel about it! I just wish we understood the language. Serra Devassa hike was a good one. Its a real hiking trail with no quads or bikes (or cars!!) Ah time to head home- Thanks very much! Canada

Activities to experience
To visit Sao Miguel, known as the Ilha Verde (Green island), is also to discover a natural world that seems to have been hidden for a reason or purpose. The close proximity of attractions are easily accessible, however, to observe and admire it, will prolong your stay indefinitely. Nurtured by nature and time, one will find the crater lakes of Sete Cidades, Lagoa do Fogo (Fire Lake) and Lagoa das Furnas (Furnas Lake). For any traveller, there are a variety of activities; hiking trails, whale watching, sailing, beaches with warm waters, natural and thermal pools that soak away any kind of blues.

Winter Getaway : 
Visitors from the colder climates- Have you thought of migrating during the winter months?  
At Quinta das Acacias, we can accommodate your seasonal stay in the Azores starting October 1st to May 31. Affordable monthly rates available.  
Both travel and accommodation are at their lowest, giving you more to spend on your Christmas holiday.
The city streets are festive with lights and decorations, the stores are full of beautiful crafted gifts. Stop at a local cafe and have an espresso while watching the ocean waves crashing against the rocks or have a glass of local wine on a romantic evening after strolling through streets.  All, at your own relaxing pace.
The rich green countryside and temperate temperatures are great for exploring the island.
