Guestbook comments from the owner
This was one of the best holiday we've ever had. The Villa was immaculate, all the rooms were very sizeable with two very large bedrooms both ensuite, the kitchen had loads of attractive solid wood cupboards, with everything you need (4 ring hob, oven, microwave, toaster, lots of glasses, cutlery etc, etc). Everything was built and decorated to an attractive and high standard. There is a large balcony (on the ground floor and on the upper floor) on which the sun shone from about 9:30 a.m. to about 6:00 p.m. even in the winter; the sea was easily visible right in front of us. The garden was packed with lovely colourful flowers and even had a small banana tree with a cluster of bananas dangling from it! The owners, Sarah and Ciaran, are extremely nice people. For us the location was perfect; villa with a southern location and southerly aspect, it was in a quiet town and the surrounding houses were quite well spaced out and were very pleasant, colourful and natural. Being on the south coast the weather was much better than in the north; we didn't have a day's rain the whole fortnight with just loads of sun. The other thing about the location is access to the levadas; I think we were in the best place for levada walks which we love, giving beautiful views, many of spectacular gorges; quite a lot of flowers and butterflies were out even in the winter. The roads are very windy but no problem and driving around was scenic - and so little traffic! No Funchal for us! Oh, and we went on a great whale and dolphin watch from the Calheta Marina (see www.madeirawhalewatching.com). The Madeiran people were very friendly and nice to us, they deserve support from the tourist industry.

We are living in Madeira for ten years. We have always worked with holiday rentals and tourism and we enjoy it very much. We live in the next village so are on hand should you need any help in finding your feet. We love madeira and know all the very best places to explore. The Island has much too offer.
We built Villa Murphy in 2006; we designed the build ourselves having found lots of other villas for sale quite small and dark. We wanted to offer our quests open space and lots of light. We also wanted nice big balconies from the bedrooms and panoramic views of the ocean. The villa is a beautiful large building with lots of space throughout the property and never fails to impress our guests: hence our reviews.
The village location too is very typical of rural Madeira and is a great base to explore the surrounding nature. The people are very friendly and local bread, vegetable and fish vans still deliver in old Maderian style to your door.
The villa is a large, spacious, bright and airy property with wonderful ocean views. The balconies, bbq terrace and bottom garden patio provide even more space. You can enjoy breakfast on the top balcony; bbq your dinner on the bottom terrace and retire to the garden patio for an evening drink. Perfect. This property easily accommodates up to 6 people, but is ideal for couples who like their own bedroom and bathroom with plenty of space.
The location is ideal to get out and about and explore: all the best sites are only a short drive away starting with the marina and beach being a 5 minute drive to the famous rock pools of Porto Moniz only a 25 minute drive away.
This side of the Island is renowned for warmer weather and beautiful levada walks.
The villa is the perfect holiday accommodation; very well appointed and in a great location to explore.
