Gianni and Federica welcome you to Azores Bagus Surf Stay Explore. Azores Bagus offers a relaxing and a good vibes environment in a strategic location.
Gianni and Federica are an Italian couple with the passion for the ocean, the surf, and nature. Federica has a background in fashion and Gianni in scuba diving. Separated between Milan and Genoa, they decided to change their lives and to start this new adventure together. Some of their greatest ideas come from sitting in front of the sea, and for them it was during their last Indo trip at Desert Point. That's why they chose the name Bagus, which means "Good" or "Beautiful" in Bahasa Indonesia; as a way to recall where everything started with their new life here on this beautiful island.

I spent about a week in the house, Azores Bagus Surf Stay Explore, and I can say that I was pleasantly surprised at how the hosts, Federica & Gianni, managed to create a welcoming atmosphere in the house... dinners together, daytime surfing, evening conversations... it's impossible not to mention the guests... just super! It was just a nice feeling to be part of this beautiful family... good luck, guys, if you're reading this ;)

"Unforgettable 2 weeks @ Azores Bagus"
Gianni & Federica were the most fantastic hosts who went out of their way to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves. This might sound straightforward, but is far from easy to achieve. Their secret seems to be sharing a genuinely fun, happy and relaxed atmosphere - something which one cannot learn...you either have the natural gift of hospitality or you don’t! They managed to strike the tricky balance of making sure everyone felt included without imposing a strict regime of overly-organised ‘compulsory fun’ for those who wanted greater independence. Being fluent in Portuguese, English and Italian a great asset that allows Gianni and Fede to make a ‘home from home’ for all (though inevitably English was the prevailing language). Whilst principally advertised as a surf hostel, Gianni and Fede have a deep knowledge of the Azores and were able to make endless recommendations for those who were not there to catch waves or just wanted a day of doing something different. They of course have the advantage of being located in Azores, which is a natural playground offering something for everyone. The house was always kept clean and tidy and the daily breakfasts consistently delicious. A large choice of sleeping arrangements allow something to suit everyone. Maximum occupancy of 10 (soon to be 12) guests ensures enough variety without the feeling you are living with strangers. Weekly BBQs (plus impromptu additional dinners at request) were provided in the garden and a special highlight.
