Fantastic property with great pool and great views

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I stayed in this villa for one week in early May 2014.

The villa was exactly as it is pictured and described on the 'HomeAway' website. Having rented villas in other places around Europe, we were surprised to see how big and well equipped this one was for the money. The pool and view are fantastic and are the biggest selling points of the property. We spent a lot of time on the terrace by the pool admiring the view. There are several balconies all of which enjoy the same views and we had a bbq most nights which we ate outside. Inside is big and spacious with a full and well equipped kitchen.

The weather was sunny every day with temperatures around 24 degrees (C) for most of the day. It began to get a little cooler in the evenings at that time of year but still warm enough for us to eat outside every evening.

Location wise, the property is near Arco Da Calheta. The place was easy to find because Rosanne, the local contact, gave us good directions and kindly met us at the bottom of the hill to show us the way. The place is VERY hilly and a car is definitely needed to get around. There are a couple of very small shops nearby and the main supermarket is 10 mins drive away in Calheta. There is a very good pizza place just 5 or 10 mins walk down the hill (maybe 20 mins to walk back up in the sun! ?). Exact coordinates for those interested in looking on Google maps (although maps are old enough that the property with pool is not shown): 32.722165, -17.151362

A few things to be aware of: The shower has a tendency to go hot and cold. There is no internet and no information in the property about local attractions / things to do, so read up before you go, take a trip to the Tourist Info office in Funchal or I’m sure Roseann would be happy to help.

Overall, would happily stay again if going to Madeira and would recommend to friends and family.

A home away from home, fantastic house to rent

  • 5 out of 5
Really enjoyed our stay in this house. We stayed there in June 2011. The pool was crystal clear and the views are spectacular. The house was very comfortable and clean with all needs. The back garden was really a nice place to relax and enjoy, a peaceful setting. Would highly recommend renting. Was great to have satellite TV. Location was excellent as only few minutes drive from beach and marina and 30 minutes drive to funchal.

Overall a beautiful house to rent and to feel at home, will definitely be returning.

Upmarket home with fabulous views

  • 5 out of 5
The photos of this house barely do it justice. It is very attractively furnished and decorated with windows and balconies that make the most of the fantastic views.
LOCATION
The house is high up on a very steep hill which is quite a demanding walk, even for the nearby bars, small stores, pizzeria and bank. We relied on our car for just about every trip. The ER101 'fast' road is less than 5 minutes down the hill, via a choice of routes, of varying widths and gradients.
FACILITIES
Although the house only has two reception rooms and two bedrooms, these are all large and particularly nicely furnished. The house is also very well equipped, with far more kitchen equipment than you normally find in a holiday home. The dishwasher was much appreciated, as was the huge flat screen TV for the world cup. The rear garden is still getting established and has a large paved area around 2 sides of the lovely hilltop pool, plus an outside shower and seating.
ACCESS
Other than the staircase in the house, there is also a stairway down to the pool. Both are wide and would be accessible even to people with some reduced mobility. There is a gated and covered driveway alongside the house which requires some care when manouvering due to being narrowed by columns, our rental Megane was a tightish fit although we could open all the doors & boot once it was parked!
CALHETA
Calheta marina (with its Moroccan sand beach!) is just over a 5 minute drive away and we'd recommend the Blue Marlin down there for lunch or dinner, their seafood was excellent and we took one of their dolphin watching trips as well, (we saw more dolphins here than on any of our trips to the Indian Ocean or Med). There is a Dolce Vita supermarket opposite the marina which carries just about all you'll need for self catering.
PAUL DA SERRA
Driving up the hill from the house takes you through the tree line and onto the high plain and moorland of Paul Da Serra, as a complete contrast to the coastal landscape of cliffs and valleys.
WEATHER
The cliffs around Madeira seem to attract cloud fairly readily and the weather often varied accordingly, even in the short distance between sea level and the house. Answer - if the weather doesn't suit then just jump in the car and drive a little way to where it does!
SUMMARY
A lovely, well equipped, house in a dramatic setting. Roseann was very helpful with the booking and when we arrived, and both she and her husband keep the house and pool in spotless condition.

Atemberaubende Aussicht

  • 4 out of 5
Wir haben hier vom 27.08. – 10.09.2014 unseren Urlaub verbracht. Das Haus ist recht groß. Die Schlafzimmer haben einen wundervollen Panorama-Ausblick aufs Meer. Die beiden Doppelbetten sind allerdings recht klein. Das Bad mit Dusche ist auch sehr eng und wer Wechselduschen mag ist hier genau richtig :).Man kann die Temperatur nicht richtig einstellen und es wechselt immer von heiß bis kalt. In der großen Wohnküche steht eine Schlafcouch. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet und verfügt über einen großen Kühl- und Gefrierschrank. Wir haben keinen für uns passenden Fernsehsender rein bekommen außer einem englischen Musikkanal (sehr zur Freude unserer Töchter). Ein Auto ist unbedingt erforderlich. Allerdings war der Stellplatz für unseren Kombi recht eng und es war immer ein Akt mit dem Einparken. Ein kleiner Lebensmittelmarkt ist gleich unten im Dorf (zu Fuß in 10 Min., hoch braucht man ungefähr eine halbe Stunde). In Calheta gibt es einen etwas größeren Supermarkt. Da kriegt man alles was das Herz begehrt. Einheimische Produkte sind billig (portugiesischen Wein für unter 2 Euro). Sehr nette Nachbarn, die uns auch mal mit einem Brot „Bolo do Caco“ ausgeholfen haben und noch nicht einmal Geld dafür haben wollten. Das Haus ist wirklich sehr ruhig gelegen. Der Pool ist recht groß, allerdings war mir das Wasser viel zu kalt. Habe erst zu spät gelesen, dass man es hätte für 60 Euro pro Woche beheizen können. Am Pool befinden sich zwei Liegestühle und ein kleiner Sonnenschirm. Vormittags haben wir Roseann eine SMS geschrieben, ob es möglich wäre weitere Liegen und noch einen Sonnenschirm zu bekommen, mittags wurden sie geliefert. Die eine Palme im Garten ist mittlerweilen auch um ein vielfaches größer als auf dem Bild und bietet zusätzlich für gut 3 Personen Schatten. Die Temperatur tagsüber war sehr angenehm, nicht zu heiß. Allerdings wurde es abends dann doch etwas frisch und man braucht eine Strickjacke. Na ja, das Haus liegt ja auch ganz schön weit oben. Das nächste Restaurant ist das Pizzeria & Rest. Grill Loreto in ca. 400 m Entfernung. Sehr leckeres Essen. Wir haben den ersten Abend Pizza gegessen (sieht so aus und schmeckt so wie in Italien), dann allerdings nur noch die Spezialitäten aus Madeira (Espada und Espetada). Super lecker und die Preise sind ok. Die Bedienungen sehr freundlich. Der Sonnenuntergang ist ein Traum und wir haben noch nie so viele Fotos geschossen. Der Kontakt mit Roseann war sehr nett und wir werden mit Sicherheit wieder kommen.......

Très belle maison avec vue magnifique

  • 3 out of 5
Rien a dire sur la maison, très belle prestation avec quelques points négatifs, télé avec satellite uniquement qu'en anglais, même pas une chaîne portugaise!! wifi moyen contre paiement. Aucun plat pour mettre au four. Gazinière tous les feux ne fonctionnent pas. Problème de lit : sommier plus grand + matelas trop petit + un sur-matelas trop grand, donc drap trop juste, sur-matelas qui tombe. L'annonce devrait indiquer l'altitude de la maison. On nous avait dit que le ménage + changement de drap et entretien piscine devrait se faire toute les semaines, sur les 3 semaines nous avons eu juste les lits de fait une fois, et l'entretien de la piscine aussi par ce qu'on a réclamé.

Maison magnifique avec vue imprenable

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons passé un superbe séjour, l'accueil de la propriétaire est chaleureux.
La maison est superbe, très bien équipée, avec une piscine qui surplombe Calheta, la vue est magnifique.
Les gens sont sympas et la vie n'est pas chère.
En résumé, tout est beau, les fleurs, les "villages", et très propre.
Voyage à faire absolument et prévoir une voiture car énormément de choses à voir!!!
