Casa Serena was built in 2003 - 2004 to provide a high standard of accommodation and is personally supervised by the owners.
Casa Serena provided the perfect base for our holiday. The property was exactly as described and was immaculate clean. The owners are superb hosts and make a special effort to make you feel welcome: fruit and wine is waiting for you as is a very hospitable welcome on your arrival. I would have no hesitation recommending Casa Serena to anyone and this is definitely a place we will return to.
Arco da Calheta is ideally placed on the SW of the island: Calheta itself is easy to reach and has a super hotel (the Calheta Beach) where excellent meals are available at reasonable prices); there is also a supermarket and other small shops. Travel is easy to anywhere on the island - even travelling to Funchal only takes 45 minutes if following the express roads.
Casa Serena provided us with the perfect base for walking and driving excursions and enabled us to see the great variety the island has to offer.
This was an excellent property to stay in and offers everything needed for a long or short break.
We booked this apartment for almost a month. From the moment you drive up the hill to this immaculate place and then walk into the apartment it just is amazing!! You have everything you need there, the owners have made sure that you are comfortable, they have put their heart and soul into this place and they are also the friendliest people too. We would HIGHLY recommend the apartment and it has such a gorgeous view of the ocean, along with seeing the paragliders, even saw Dolphins ( with binoculars). there is a lovely village within walking distance if you need any groceries, coffee bars and also if you walk up to the viewing platform which is about 100 metres away with a glass of wine you can watch the sunset. It was nice to come back to after a day's outing, and we felt like it was a home away from home. Thanks to Brian and Catherine for such a memorable place to stay.
Casa Serena was a delight to relax in or return to after a day of activity. It was fully equipped and spotlessly clean. The balcony was accessible from the living or bedroom areas and was a lovely place to sit and enjoy the view.
The Wisteria clad garden was a delightful spot for an al fresco lunch. The popular Rabacal walks were within a 15 minute drive, and other levadas even closer. We especially enjoyed the variety of scenery and wildflowers on the walk from Ponta del Pargo via Cabo. The chocolate cake at Fio Mio afterwards was an added bonus! The shop/cafe in Loretto was a good place to drink a coffee, purchase fresh bread and observe local life. The friendly, English speaking staff at the restaurant at the top of the hill cooked us delicious, fresh fish.
Our grateful thanks go to Brian and Catherine for their prompt response to all our queries both on-line and while we were staying
Our only slight niggle was the lack of on site access to the internet. However, sitting in the car with the laptop, outside the social centre, was a novel experience!
Everything exceeded any expectations we may have had. The apartment was spacious, very clean and exactly as described. Thank you to Brian & the warm welcome along with the introductory fruit and wine.
The location was ideal for non city folk, although a visit to Funchal was easy via the express way and was all the better because we had this base and its surroundings to come back to.
The ocean view was as good as portrayed. The access for touring and Levada walking was also excellent. Local amenities were as listed & all Madeiran people we met were friendly and welcoming. The weather was fantastic through out our stay. Take courage and use the old roads to see the best of Madeira.
This was our first time on Madeira and would not hesitate to come again and to come back to Casa Serena. We would gladly recommend both to our friends and family.
Congratulations also to this website - easy to use, loads of information.
Casa Serena was a fantastic choice for exploring all parts of Madeira. We enjoyed many long lazy breakfasts and evening meals with wine on the balcony watching the sun set. Casa Serena provided the perfect base for a relaxing break. Brian and Catherine were perfect hosts, and the wine, water and fruit on arrival certainly set us up for our holiday!
We recommend exploring Porto Moniz, Funchal, Levada walks as well as local Calheta, with a lovely sandy beach, supermarket and fine restaurants.
We have recommended Casa Serena to all our family and friends and if you are looking for a relaxing holiday, amongst the peaceful Madeiran life then chose Casa Serena, it truly was an amazing place to stay.
Thank you Brian and Catherine for making our stay a memorable one.

Our first visit to Madeira couldn't have been nicer. The location, apartment and view were all that one could wish for, posing the difficult decision as to whether to remain on the balcony all day with the customary 'red' or 'white', or to risk a tan on Calheta's superb beach.
The weather was excellent during the two weeks and nothing was too much trouble for Catherine and Brian when any help or advice was required; the perfect hosts. Thanks again for everything.
