We love this house!! Gisela and Jose have created something wonderful and we wish we could pick up the house and take it home. The view of Horta is incredible and you could honestly just live on the terrace!! It is also so close to everything else in Horta. The highlight was taking a trip with the Naturalist whale watching which is run by Gisela and Jose, who are not tour guides, but marine biologists who share a passion and commitment to the sea life of the Azores. Their knowledge and understanding, and the fact that you are helping research that will support whales and other marine life is really special. We saw many sperm whales, whole pods of dolphins swimming by us, and had the most exhilarating rib boat ride to find the whales. The wonderful Maggie also helped make our experience - everyone at Naturalist were very friendly and welcoming. If we return to Horta, there is only one place we would stay. Thank you for making our holiday so special!

We didn't stay at the fisherman's cottage in this listing. Jose &Gi made a last minute arrangement for us to stay at Porto Pim apartments due to a booking error on their part. This all turned out fine, and the reception staff were very helpful in giving details about the hikes.

What a great hidden gem! A serene location with a beautiful view. Our complaint is. . . we didn't have enough time there. Until we meet again.

Perfect place to relax ashore after our 12-day Atlantic crossing! Best view in the whole town, and amazing deck!

Didn't meet with Jose & Gi personally, but they arranged all from a distance so check-in worked out effortlessly. Best of all were their connections with local "science & tourism" people, part of (URL HIDDEN) We had a superb trip to Capelinhos (the 1957-58 volcanic eruption area that looks like a moonscape), with Franz, a fantastically knowledgeable local (since the age of 12 years) and a native German speaker (which gave us the opportunity to have holidays from having to speak English). Obrigado!

Casa do Porto is a extremely nice, clean and charming place with awesome views of the Harbour and beautiful sunrise from the window of the bedroom. It is located in the center, close to everything. Absolutely recommended.
