The three showers rooms are well equipped with sink, shower & toilet in each. The lounge furnishings are great and the log fire amazing. The kitchen was very well equipped (in fact so well equipped little space for food). The pool was lovely but a bit cold...but hey we were in November so expected. The bbq hut was great and the fruit trees lovely. However I would respectfully suggest that the villa is not suitable for people with walking difficulties due to the number of steps .... However this seems to be the norm for Madeira. Finally what can I say about Mr.Janes???? Absolutely perfect host (best we have ever encountered) he met us on arrival, put us totally at ease as he showed us around and was particularly informative. We did encounter a tiny problem at the villa but we called him and he had it fixed promptly. The lovely Maria (the cleaner) is also fabulous and does a pretty impressive job. Villa was spotless. Would highly recommend!

The host was prompt and helpful on arrival and leaving. Right by the sea. Loved the huge 1st floor veranda for sunbathing & dining. Two full bathrooms and another toilet, kitchen has everything you could need. Large under home garage keeps the car cool. Perfect!
