You get the top floor with a good-sized bedroom with double bed and lots of storage, small bathroom (with shower, not bath), long living space with comfortable furniture and a small balcony looking out over the little garden onto the street. Much of the interior is lovely warm wood. It feels quiet and enclosing. Street is busy and a bit ordinary but not too noisy - quite nice to watch life go by. You get a great view beyond the street/houses beyond to the hills above he town. There is on-street parking (assumes you have a car which you will need). Miguel very welcoming, helpful and plenty of local advice. You get the feeling of living in a family home but the top floor is private despite having an open spiral staircase to the floor below. Miguel and his children are very quiet and wouldn't dream of disturbing guests.
Povoacao is a mix of working and pretty. Landscape is stunning. The Portuguese are charming and helpful. Restaurants and cafes abound. Favourite: Jardim but the restaurant at the harbour is very good too and has the views).
If you can figure out to dates of the March and September festivals go then! Povoacao was briefly full of marching bands and streets filled (literally) with flowers and a great buzz.
The Atlantic in September is warmer than the swimming pools :-) Paradise is a walk around Lagoa do Furnas :-))

The place is perfect for discovering the southern part of Sao Miguel with its picturesque viewpoints, beaches, natural hotsprings, waterfalls and a ton of other beauties. The room is very nice, clean and spacious if you need your privacy.
Miguel is the most welcoming host, so if you need anything, he's always there to help you. He is a good company as well, so if you want a taste of true island - just ask him.
I would definitely recommend this place.
Miguel is a very kind person, he waited us at our arrival even if was very late and he provided all information we needed.
The house is comfortable and clean and every morning we enjoyed breakfast.
We had rent a car and from this point we visited the island up and down left to right based on the suggestion we received from Miguel.
We had a nice stay!
We'll never forget our stay in Povoacao!
Miguel is really an astonishing host.
He has given us every information we needed and he has assisted us to organize our trip to Azores Islands also before we left Italy.
Then he has received us in an extraordinary way and has been a real friend for us.
Miguel does the best to make his guests feel at home!
His house is wonderful, large, very clean and equipped with every kind of facilities.
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts to Miguel and a lot of kisses to his lovely children, Catarina and Pedro.
We hope to see them soon again!
we received a warm welcome from Miguel. The place is really nice and beautifull, the house as well as the village!
With the bikes, we were able to go around and it was one of the best adventures in azores!
Moreover, we met the two kids of Miguel and had a good time together!
Hope to see you soon guys!
