Guestbook comments from the manager

Vila Rostrum is easily the best villa we have stayed in. It really is a gem, a place of relaxation and relative peace and quiet. That is until Isabel (6) appears. We could have just stayed here for the 7 days but did drag ourselves away to visit Calheta.

Monte with the baskets. Isabel loved them and the cable car. Porto Santo and the beautiful beach.

The Aquapark and Santa Cruz, São Vicente and the caves, Porto Moniz and the lava pools.

We have had brilliant BBQ’s, swims in both pools and played table tennis.

Very sad to leave this lovely place.

Thank you for an amazing holiday.

Stunning-Stunning-Stunning!

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Rostrum is a slice of paradise, in paradise! The vila is in the perfect location in Funchal, a few minutes from Central Funchal and all the amazing adventures you could imagine with the most amazing views! Great for a larger family with the main house and the apartment downstairs, and perfect for those with limited mobility. Garage access level to a lift that takes you to both the main house and the apartment, with the master suite on the main level made it perfect for the older generation.
The vila is nicely appointed with everything you might need, plus a wood fired grill with great vistas to cook and entertain. We will definitely be coming back, and wouldn't stay anywhere else! Thanks for helping us make some great memories for my mothers 80th birthday in the birthplace of both her grandfathers!

Wonderful house with a fantastic view

  • 5 out of 5
We love this house. It was our 2nd stay. The house is very well maintained and very clean, and it has everything you need.
We love the view of Funchal from the livingroom and the terrace.
It is a perfect house for a big family. We were 9 persons and we had plenty of space.

Stunning Villa with Spectacular Views

  • 5 out of 5
This spacious, well equipped luxury villa was spotlessly clean, and had beautiful, well maintained gardens and infinity pool. The beds were especially comfortable, and there was an electrically operated easy chair which was perfect for putting your feet up after a busy day negotiating Madeira's hilly terrain.
We used Tony's tours for a trip to The Nun's Valley and also the West Coast of the Island (including a Levada walk and spectacular cliff walk down to Paul do Mar) We learned so much from our guide about the history of the Island, its native trees and plants and Industries and can thoroughly recommend these 2 excursions.
We received exceptional service from Linda who was there to to meet us on our arrival and departure and co-ordinated the linen change and mid week clean so that our day was not disrupted.
We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives, and look forward to staying there again in the future.

Family celebration

  • 5 out of 5
Hi Judith

What a wonderful week on Madeira. We returned home yesterday with great family memories. The Villa was gorgeous and more than met my expectations.

I had made arrangements with Paula to come & cook for us on Aug 9 and to leave some prepared meals for the freezer. She is a great cook, we all enjoyed every morsel. Paula has a warm outgoing personality and was the perfect start to the trip.

Another perfect match for us was Roberto, one of Marco's drivers. We made arrangements to have him give us tours of the island. The rest of the time we called Carlos, Marco or used taxis from Funchal.

Please, please thank the owners of the Villa for opening their beautiful home to us. What a fantastic treat.

I would like to thank you for all your help, patience and planning to make this vacation as smooth as it was.

Sincerely
Mrs. Anita Berg

Owner's Response: Thank you for your glowing review! This party of all ages and some from as far away as the USA came for a memorable family reunion using all 5 bedrooms at Vila Rostrum. Booking agent, Judith, and a great team of others helped plan what to do and see; suggested restaurants; booked transport; organised a caterer; etc. and it gives us such pleasure to know what a success the holiday was. We look forward to doing the same for others!

What A Gem

  • 5 out of 5
Exceptional design, both inside and out of this luxury villa made it the ideal home for our Easter holiday. We are a family of 5 vacationing with my husband's parents. The interior and grounds are so spacious and exceptionally well presented. You are able to be together as a family yet have private space, such as separate balconies and garden areas to enjoy the stunning views that this property affords. We enjoyed evenings around the outdoor grill area watching the daily cruise ships come and go. Bedrooms and baths are exceptionally designed and have screened shutters allowing for fresh air and darkness for lay-ins in the morning. We were especially impressed with planning details like an easy access parking space in Funchal center and extras such as a lovely welcome basket filled with start up goodies. The ladies appreciated details such as Vista Alegre china, beautiful wall decor and an ample supply of linens. Apart from the obvious, not one but two pools, my 3 daughters enjoyed the table tennis, Playstation, and local lizards. There is a covered breezeway connecting the two garden areas which make an ideal space for play.

I commend the owner for a job well done and also offer kudos to the team that manages this property. Judith, Linda, and Emily were all so delightful, professional, and exceptionally helpful with all of our booking and on-site management needs. We had some initial issues with the pool and their response was prompt albeit a holiday weekend.

I recommend Villa Rostrum, especially for larger family groups, without reservation. Oh yeah, and least I forget, Madeira is a lovely holiday destination. The natural beauty is breathtaking.

Absolutely beautiful! Would LOVE to return!

  • 5 out of 5
My family of 7 (my husband and I plus our 5 young adult children/spouses) stayed here in early January 2008, and it was unbelievable. It was booked for the amazing fireworks on New Years Eve, so we stayed somewhere else until we could check in here. The villa and the harbour view are amazing! We were all so impressed. My husband commented after checking in that he would "be happy staying right here (on the deck of the pool) the rest of the trip!" The only negative is that there is not much within short walking distance, so we had to taxi to town for dinner or shopping. We did have a driver to take us around the sights of the whole island, which I highly recommend. Our agent was Claire..and she was so helpful before and during our trip!

Madeira’s charming capital town of Funchal, with its 140,000 inhabitants, sits in a large bowl that rises from a natural deep-water harbour on the south of this sub tropical island to an impressive backdrop of high mountains. It is the island’s centre of activity, with something for everyone: an opera house/theatre, chic shops, street stalls, open market, wine lodges, museums, city parks, bars, cafés and restaurants without number, multi-screen cinema, a Roman Catholic cathedral dating back to the 14th century and an English Anglican Church built in 1822. This beautiful island is famous for its tropical gardens, two championship golf courses, truly wonderful mountain and coastal walking, ocean swimming, sailing, game fishing, etc. and, above all, its friendly Portuguese inhabitants. Verdant and with varied topography and stunning scenery, it is definitely worth exploring the island and the new network of roads and tunnels make this so easy now. Google Earth 32°39'28.13'N 16°56'19.83'W

Other Activities: visit the famous tropical gardens of Madeira

Golf: Two championship courses, Palheiro and Santo da Serra, are within 20 minutes drive and offer challenging golfing amongst spectacular scenery. Or you might like to take a day trip to the nearby island of Porto Santo to try out the new course there.
