Stunning villa, Stunning views, , Fantastic host, we would thoroughly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented a number of villas previously but never seen one with such a high rating, also we have never given 5 stars to any villa previously. Christina was, as previously stated by other guests, an excellent host. The villa is large with every amenity we could want and beautifully kept. There was a lovely meal waiting on arrival which was very welcome after a long journey. The rooms are large and beautifully furnished. The pool is a good size. The indoor BBQ area even has its own dishwasher and large fridge and pizza oven. Maid service with clean towels and sheets mid-week. Stunning villa, Stunning views, , Fantastic host, we would thoroughly recommend!

This is a beautiful house set high above Arco Da Calheta. Elegantly furnished to a high standard. Plenty of nice crockery, cutlery, and fine glassware and table linens for when we had dinner in the evening. The kitchen was well provided for, and had no problems in making meals. The fridge was large and there was another fridge with a freezer it the outside kitchen. Great to have a dish washer. The main bedroom was very large, as was the bed. The 2nd bedroom was more than big enough if 4 people were staying. This house is huge. It is well looked after, and Dora came in every 3 days to change the sheets, towels, and clean. She always ensured that we had fresh flowers which was a nice touch. She did cook for us, but we had to ask her not too because of dietary problems. We did appreciate her effort though. The weather was not as good as we thought it would be so didn't use the pool much, however a nice place to sun bathe.The garden is beautiful, and there is a lovely large balcony/ patio area on the first floor with wonderful views over the village. The owner Cristina lives in a sectioned off part of the house. She is very discrete. She is very pleasant and is a wonderful host and nothing is too much trouble for her. In fact I left my camera, and she has very kindly posted it back to me. Thank you Cristina, and Dora . There is a wonderful Lavada walk on the mountain above the property. A bit exposed in places, so you would have to be extremely careful if you decided to do it. At the moment some Lavada walks are closed due to the building of the new hydro electric dam. It's not clear when you set off, only to come across a closed sign when you try to continue the walk.You are then faced with reversing your route, or trying to find away round which could take you miles out of you way.

A wonderful holiday in a fantastic property in a beautiful location. Cristina is the perfect host.

  • 5 of 5

Cristina has a beautiful, spacious house set in a lovely, well maintained garden with some unusual plants. The house is located high above Arco de Calheta and has a wonderful panoramic view across the hillside and bay.

The property is very comfortable and well equipped and had all that we needed to prepare meals at home. There is a fully equipped second kitchen, including barbecue, for preparing food for outside eating. Everything in the house is high quality and provides for a comfortable, relaxing holiday.

Cristina is a generous, welcoming host who ensures that everything around the property is well organised. She lives next door and is available to help with any problems or enquiries, but does not impose whatsoever. A special mention for Cristina's helper, Dora, who keeps the house immaculately clean and provides delicious, unexpected meals.

We had a hire car for our stay and enjoyed exploring the beautiful Madeiran countryside, even if the driving was a bit exciting at times - the hills are plentiful and steep. Thank you very much, Cristina, we hope to return before too long.

Great Accommodation and excellent hospitality.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at Sun and Moon. We had only been there 24 hours before we decided we would definitely been returning!

The booking process was easy and Christina, the owner, kept in touch when we booked, sent us the arrival details and met us easily as planned ( we were early and so was Christina!). We had an excellent introduction to the villa and Christina made sure we were happy everything was as we expected before she left us with a delicious homemade dinner and cake.

The villa was bigger than we expected and it was well furnished, tastefully presented, very well maintained and was good quality throughout. The bathrooms were excellent with loads of hot water and good showers, the kitchen was well equipped and if that was not enough there was also a fully equipped outdoor kitchen with BBQ and pizza oven. On the cooler evenings the log burning stove in the sitting room was a real treat.

Outside the garden was lovely and the view was awesome. The pool was a bonus though we decided that we would wait for a warmer visit before we tried it out!

The maid service half way through our stay was great with fresh bedding and towels and all our laundry attended to.

The location was great as we wanted to explore as much of the island as possible and though there were bars close by and restaurants a short drive away we ate in most nights (the supermarket was 5 minutes away by car).

Christina's hospitality was exactly right. She made sure we had her telephone number if we needed anything, she called in a couple of times to make sure we were enjoying our stay and we were always delighted to see her especially when she brought a selection of fruit from her garden! When we left she told us that if there was any problem at the airport (it sometimes closes due to high winds) we must call her immediately and she would ensure we did not end up stuck at the airport overnight!

Would we recommend Sun and Moon - most certainly and without hesitation. Would we return - most certainly and without hesitation. Was Christina a great host - most certainly. The only thing we would do differently next time is to make sure we stayed for longer and we picked a nicer week for the weather so we could take full advantage of the pool, outdoor kitchen and huge, sunny, balcony!

Thanks Christina for a creating the perfect holiday home that formed the basis of a fantastic holiday! We look forward to returning.

Beautiful house with great views

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa, very well maintained and so much space. Very clean and it was like staying in a posh hotel. Cristina had a meal prepared for us, roast chicken, which was very welcome as we had an evening flight. And to our surpise someone came in to change the bedding and towels midweek and left us a lovely supper! Thank you Cristina for your kindness. We are already planning our trip for next year!

Ultimate family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four: two hard working parents and two teenage boys. Sun and Moon was the perfect spot for us to unwind and enjoy just being a family. Christina was marvellous ! The perfect mix between respect for privacy and nice attentions such as the fabulous meal when we arrived en the cooking in between. The best summer house we ever rented.
