“Very friendly.”
Reviewed 4 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The house was small but well situated and very convenient.
The owner of the house was so kind and friendly. She prepared a road book with all the nice things to see and the good places to eat. She really is a passionnate of her island.

“A True Cultural Immersion”
Reviewed 21 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

person found this review helpful

If you like to dive right into someone else's culture, Aunty Arlete's House is a great starting point for the independently minded population of Terceira Island in the Azores. The owners went to great lengths to introduce us to the unique dialect, customs and history of Terceira. Their insider knowledge accelerated our learning experience, so that the two weeks we had on the island were as rich as if we had months to wander around it. We went for professional meetings, but would happily return for any reason at all, as long as we could stay in Aunty Arlete's House.

“Felt like home”
Reviewed 15 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

people found this review helpful

When I met Maria at the airport I felt such a connection as if I had met a long lost sister. Her warm smile and hug makes you feel so welcome. As we arrived at the house and she handed me the key and I opened the door I felt like home. It was so welcoming, clean and the view is to die for. In the front you can sit on the porch and see Mont Brazil and watch the boats go by on the ocean. The beautiful view of the mountains and the small towns. In the back you also see the ocean and the islands of Pico and Sao Jorge when it is not fogy. Maria and Arlindo are such wonderful persons that I will never forget and I hope to be friends with them for the rest of my life. So if you want to go to Terceira c onsider this place because you will love it.

“Totally Azores”

If you truly want to be immersed in the culture in a friendly, ideal setting, then look no further. Set above Angra with great views of the city below, we walked with Maria through the very clean and complete home atmosphere of this house, in true Terceira custom, with full furnishing and appliances. Then by the awesome vegetable garden in back (some of which made a great soup), along the walkway to the view to the West, where you can see the islands of Sao Jorge and Pico. During our 3 weeks there, Maria was an excellent host, recommending places to go, events to see, and places to dine. A great time and memory.
