Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

Casa do João da Eira was hands down the best vacation home experience I've had. Rui met us at check in to greet us and show us the property. It was well-cleaned and everything had been thought of--fresh handsoap in every bathroom, towels, outdoor fireplace prepped, and a bottle of Madeira wine and a bolo de mel cake for us.

The property is amazing. It was cozy for just two of us, but would easily accommodate 8 people. The water heater is even tankless, so nobody gets a cold shower. Every floor of the house has a view--the beds in the attic are the only ones you can't see the sunrise from without getting out of bed. The ground floor has the kitchen and a generous living room, as well as a half bathroom. The ground floor terrace has several tables and chairs to use while cooking on the outdoor fireplace--not to mention the gorgeous view. And, yes, you really can see a waterfall through the kitchen window while sitting at the table. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The master bedroom has a balcony with an even better view than downstairs...and two cozy chairs and a light to enjoy at any time of day or night. The attic has twin beds and a slightly separated snug area with couch & tv.

Rui was incredibly responsive, giving us great restaurant recommendations and making sure we had everything we needed. He was very welcoming & friendly, and his daughter, who helped check us in, was as well. The town of Seixal is beautiful and has a beach as well as tidepools to swim in--we were there in January so didn't go swimming, but even then the water was warm.

If you're looking for a beautiful, relaxing vacation stay, I can't recommend this place enough. We're already hoping to return!

Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. Rui met us there with a bottle of Portuguese wine and a warm loaf of

bread. The house is lovely and had everything we needed. It is a peaceful setting with a world

class view. There were 5 of us and we all want to go back again. If we could give more than

5 stars we would.

Absolutely fantastic cottage in Seixal

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place to spend family holidays. Quiet and peaceful Seixal offers great views, beach, two local restaurants and a natural swimming pool. Cottage is clean, well equipped and very friendly owner is always willing to help and provide information. Seixal is also a great place to explore the island, only 10 minutes from Porto Moniz and 45 minutes from Funchal.

Il miglior posto in Madeira

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo apprezzato moltissimo la casa, la sua posizione e il paese di Seixall, a nostro avviso il meno contaminato dal turismo di massa. La casa è comoda (anche per un numero maggiore di persone, rispetto alle sette del nostro gruppo), ben attrezzata, con un giardino che abbiamo goduto appieno, ristrutturata senza renderla anonima e inserita in un paese vero, vissuto. Per non parlare della gentilezza del proprietario, sempre disponibile!

Owner's Response: Grazie per la vostra gentile e accorate parole circa la "Casa di João da Eira" e il villaggio di Seixal. In realtà, Seixal è una città "benedetta" con le verdi montagne scendono verso il mare blu in un ambiente davvero rivolto per il relax. Parole attento, la sua, circa il problema del turismo di massa che contamina, poco a poco, la nostra bella isola.

Historisches Haus an einem zauberhaften Ort

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben Ende Oktober /Anfang November diesen Haus in vollen Zügen genossen. Es ist wirklich geschmackvoll und mit Liebe zum Detail sachkundig renoviert. Die Terasse ist ein Traum, die Zimmer sind gemütlich und individuell. Die Kücheneinrichtung ist vollständig, die Bäder sind sehr schön und gepflegt. Der Eigentümer ist sehr engagiert, hat uns nett empfangen und ein kleines technisches Problem sofort beheben lassen. Die gute Fee des Hauses, Rita, kümmert sich rührend um alles. Der Strand ist in 5 min zu Fuß zu erreichen, wir haben dort viele schöne Sonnenstunden verbracht, womit wir eingentlich gar nicht gerechnet hatten. Seixal ist nett, verträumt und wir fanden es viel schöner als Porto Moniz oder Sao Vicente. Wirklich empfehlenswertes Haus für Individualurlauber! Ein Auto sollte man allerdings mitbringen.

Owner's Response: Hi Anke. Thanks for your kind and sincere words about Seixal and your stay on "Casa do João da Eira". Seixal is really a small fortunate land, with its cozy little beach and verdegantes surrounding landscapes. The Sun sometimes escapes to other parts of the island, but when it appears it provides truly fantastic days.
