About Ciaran & Sarah
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 to offer.
Ciaran & Sarah purchased this villa in 2006
Why Ciaran & Sarah chose Calheta
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.
What makes this villa unique
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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Firstly I want to apologize that I didnt write you earlier. I was waiting for my older daughter. She wanted to write you a message, but she was abroad. Martin S. Dear Sarah and Ciaran, thanks a lot for a nice week that we spent in your house at Madeira. We really loved the view on the ocean from the teracce and balcony. Every day we had a breakfast at the terrace. The next think we loved was the levade behind the house. In your house was everything that we need. The only think we missed a little bit was a dishwasher. Otherwise was everything perfect. Madeira is an amazing island. We rent a car and we saw the whole island. We also visit some levadas, for example two levadas near Rabacal (25 fontes,...), Caldeirao Verde and also some small levadas. One day we went to Porto Santo by boat. The weather was erratic, because two times was raining there. On the other side a sun was also shining, but we said that we dont need any sunscreen. It was a big mistake, because we burned a lot, especially me and my father. We were looking like crayfishs. We went also to Pico Ruivo. We started at Encumenada and then we went to Pico do Arieiro. The tour was very hard and exhausting. It took almost 9 hours. But the scenery was very nice and lovely. We like walking of this type. Every year we are visiting Austria and our longer output took us 12 hours. In the annex I will send you a photo of our family in Austria this year. We have visited a lot of beaches. At most we liked the beach in Porto da Cruz. We really liked the nature on Madeira. Sometimes it looked like in Vietnam. Our way home was a little bit complicated. We flew with three planes. We flew right, but we missed one bag in Prague. It stayed in Frankfurt and there were some wines from Barbeito and also wet swimsuit and towels. The bag came after two dayes hopefullly. Thanks a lot for writing us. Best reguards Aneta S (the older daughter) and the whole family
