Nuno’s Place was amazing. Really a fantastic house. It was in marvelous condition. We so enjoyed listening to the waves and the beautiful view from the balcony. The game room was such a fun place for our teens (and as a family too!). And the pool was heated, so we enjoyed it, even in November. His mom was such a delightful hostess that met us at the house and oriented us and even gave us a homemade cake. The only downside is that the location is so far from most things to do on the island. A car is a must. Possibly time of year was to blame, but there were very few dining options in Ponta Delgada during our stay (only once did we find a restaurant open), so we had to drive to other towns to eat, even on days that we stayed home.
The accommodation surpasses the photos! You should have a car to stay here. It was a treat to have such a large house and access to a patio set under the grape vines, plus an outdoor dining table with an umbrella that seats 6. The clothes washing machine was a definite plus and there is an outdoor line to dry clothes. The unit is newly built and the appliances, furniture and spa like bathroom are wonderful. When we arrived we were greated warmly and also were able to say goodbye when we left. We were met with a home baked chocolate cake and some Madeira wine made from the grapes on the property. The house does not face the street but is down a short path. Use the geo coordinates and watch for the sign on the group mailboxes. Parking is on the street, but we had no problem finding a place. For driving around the island in all directions it was just as easy to drive all directions from the house as if you had started from Funchal. We appreciated being able to be active all day and to come back to quiet in the evening. I definitely would recommend that people consider this property. We have stayed in 7 rentals so far on this trip and this is definitely the best.
