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.

Great Villa, Location & Views

  • 5 of 5

The perfect luxurious villa for a perfect holiday. The location was great, amenities nearby, Funchal was 10 minutes drive away. The facilities at the villa were as described, we did not want to leave. It was clean, spacious, private and quiet. We would recommend anyone to stay, it's perfect for couples to families to large groups. If you did not want to relax with table tennis or swimming at the villa and are quite active, there are lots to do on the island, from dolphin watching, snorkling to mountain climbing to popping down to the casino, affordable shopping and eating out. The people on the island are so helpful and friendly, we can't wait to visit again.

Fantastic family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Rostrum was a perfect holiday getaway. Linda and Norberta were very helpful in making our family vacation at Villa Rostrum fun and memorable. The weather was cool so we couldn't enjoy the pool or outside area that much, but our family enjoyed the Villa and Annex family rooms that overlooked Funchal. The view was especially enchanting at night. We loved the New Year's Eve fireworks display! It is something to behold and we will all remember it for the rest of our lives. We highly recommend Villa Rostrum and would love to return in the warmer months.

Owner's Response: What a lovely review with such kind comments. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Vila Rostrum over the New Year. It is without a doubt the most perfect place to view the fireworks on the 31st. It is also good to know that we were able to assist you with your holiday arrangements and that it added to your overall holiday experience. Our aim is always to provide as much assistance as possible in the planning stages of your holiday, and of course we are in Madeira, so on hand always during your stay if the need requires. Hope to welcome you all back again one day. Thank you!

Stunning-Stunning-Stunning!

  • 5 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 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 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 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!

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.
