Amazing owners

5 of 5
Unfortunately due to the collapse of monarch airlines we were unable to make our stay at this villa. However Mr & Mrs MelHuish were incredibly understanding and helpful. If I get the chance to visit madeira again there's no where else I'd rather stay. Many thanks

The villa was perfect for our family

5 of 5
The villa was like home from home it has everything you need for a perfect holiday. The pool was ideal for little ones as was the games room. The view is spectacular and a perfect way to watching the sunset. Whilst there were very minor faults this did not in anyway spoil our time here. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and would return here in a heartbeat. Thank you so much Mr and Mrs Melluash
