To say this villa is incredible would be an understatement. Walking around, you can see all of the meticulous detail Max put into the house when it was built. The saltwater pool and lookout point at the end of property were also extremely well-maintained and clean. You can see Ponta Delgada lit up at night from afar from the west side of the house, and the hills and coast from the other sides of the house. This is in my opinion one of the most unique and comfortable properties we saw to potentially stay at (having driven around the entire island) whether you're 5 people or 10. Max's place is very flexible and he is one of the best hosts I've encountered during multiple years on Airbnb.
The location of Max's place is priceless. Being located in the middle-southmost part of the island, either side of the island is a mere hour away by car. This means many of the sights and activities to do in Sao Miguel are noticeably less than 45 minutes away (Furnas, hot springs, Caloura bar, Sete Cidades, etc).
My friends were very impressed by small touches such as the occasional complimentary bottle of wine or fresh loaf of bread. Thank you again for all your help and for letting us stay at your place Max. We will definitely be coming back to the Azores, and would love to be able to stay here again sometime! :)
