The facilities are excellent; everything you could possibly need. Layout and decor made for a comfortable, relaxed environment. Keys provided on arrival by owners sister who explained everything within the apartment. On the dining table was a perfect welcome setting: bowl of fresh fruit, carafe of wine, with nibbles of crackers, sultanas, walnuts and a small cheese, beautifully presented and certainly most welcome. Location is perfect for visits to other parts of Madeira by car, or by bus ( which we used ) good Sam bus services. The apartment is also but a short distance from the town centre, small and charming, with plenty of eating places, offering very good value, and variety of food. Even has it's own "Market", similar to Funchal's in providing a wide variety of freshly landed fish, local fruit and veg stalls, and a few 'tourist' ones, but all on an a very much smaller scale. So no real need to travel to shop. You could even walk to the airport in fifteen to twenty minutes! When we visit Santa Cruz again we intend to capture this apartment ( unless you get there first! ). Highly recommended.

The villa is modern and well prepared - spotless when we arrived. Everything is as the advert claims and the photos are accurate. What is truly memorable are the views from this elevation - they draw you outside all the time, and the conditions were always clear, so you can see right out to the headland at the eastern end of the island, as well as the Desertas Islands straight ahead.

The villa was so fantastic we only went out one night because everything we needed was at our temporary home and the views we too gorgeous to miss - the photos could never do them justice. The bed was great quality so we slept well and the kitchen and utility room had everything we needed for our stay. It made a big difference that Marta provided some essentials to eat and drink as our flight was quite late in the evening. Also Jose took us straight to the big supermarket to buy essentials and not-so-essentials (wine!) I'm very glad we hired a car as it would have been quite a climb up the hill on foot. The undercover parking ensured the car was in shade so cool when not in use. The villa was beautifully clean and tidy without being clinical - a perfect balance of homeliness without the feel of being in someone else's home. We can't wait to return next year and would not stay anywhere else now that we've experienced the best. Some may see the lack of eating places within walking distance an issue but we loved the tranquility. Thanks to Jose, Marta and of course the beautiful Luzia
