About Susana da Costa

I am 33 born in South Africa, my parents are Maderian and we decided to move to this magnificent island 12 years ago. I designed and decorated the house for my personal use, however I have not had the opportunity to use it, hence why I decided to share it with people who want to visit this amazing island.

Susana da Costa purchased this house in 2005

Why Susana da Costa chose Madeira

It is ideally located, with its welcoming locals and choice of bars, cafes and restaurants. Some of the areas best known attractions are only a short drive away. Funchal city centre is a 10 minute bus drive away. You are ideally situated as you able to easily explore the island and return to a relaxing home.

Excellent property, excellent landlady

  • 5 of 5

Afternoon all,

What an understated advert I must say, spending 2 weeks in this amazing property was better than I could have expected. The house was perfect, exactly like it was in the pictures and completely spotless.

If you’re looking for a 5 star hotel but don’t want to pay the stupid hotel prices (came up at £2500 for me for 2 weeks for 2 people), or you want to have more room and enough breathing space for 3 - 4 couples comfortably then this is the perfect place. I chose to stay in this property over the hotel because I enjoy cooking and I didn’t want to go out for dinner every night.

I'll just bullet point out the best bits

1. Everything

2. Suzy is a great Landlady, we had family over and she didn’t have any complaints and even joined us for a BBQ on Tuesday, when you invite her get her to make her cheesecake :D

3. Bathrooms were amazing, Lovely shower, lovely bathroom, spotlessly clean, no mould at all anywhere (unlike most hotels).

4. Rocky the dog :D, I spent 2 weeks trying to get him to play with me but he’s a little chicken, cute dog though.

5. Huge BBQ available on the terrace for you to use, it was big enough for me to do dinner for 15 people on it.

6. TV has cable and a number of English programs on it (albeit with subtitles, but it’s not England is it)

7. Suzy couldn’t do enough to help us, she called us cabs, recommended where to go, pointed out dinner options and even told us about seasonal events (firework competition)

8. Far enough out of Funchal to be pleasantly quiet but close enough for a 7 euro cab journey.

9. Huge kitchen with a great stove and oven.

10. Washing machine out the back which is very handy, it’s normally pretty hot so clothes will dry quickly.

11. Really, Really close to Madeira Shopping, you can walk it but I recommend the 4 euro cab. It’s pretty much uphill all the way. However you have the superstore there where you can do your weekly shopping and get drinks/breakfast etc etc.

12. You can walk around in your dressing gown and go and get a coffee from your huge kitchen, sit on your huge terrace and drink it whilst sitting in your swing seat checking out the views of funchal… Much better than having to have a shower in a cramped room, getting fully dressed and then waiting in a queue like a lemming at a busy Hotel breakfast room.

I really can’t give this property enough praise, I was so surprised when I got it for the price I did, all was perfect!

Nous avons découvert en famille l’île de Madère : SUPERBE !!

Depuis l'aéroport, nous avons trouvé facilement la villa et nous avons été accueillis avec le sourire par la mère de Suzana (malgré l'heure tardive de notre arrivée : 1 h du matin)... c'est une personne charmante, attentionnée et à l'écoute. Malgré notre problème de communication (notre anglais est vraiment du niveau scolaire !!!), nous nous sommes toujours compris et nous avons bien ri ensemble de cela.

La villa est spacieuse; chacun de nous a pu y trouver sa place. les literies sont bonnes. Prendre son petit déjeuner, dehors, au soleil, avec la vue sur le jardin magnifique fut un régal, surtout qu'en France, le temps était minable.... Elle est située à proximité de Funchal, des voies rapides et proche des supermarchés, des commerces.

Je ne regrette qu'une chose : que notre séjour n'ait duré qu'une semaine !!!

Je recommanderai cette location sans problème à un ami.

Nous souhaitons à Suzana et sa famille une bonne continuation dans le "tourisme" et nous pensons souvent à Rocky et à Cocorico :-)

Maison agréable sur les hauteurs de Funchal

  • 5 of 5

Une semaine passée à cinq adultes dans cette maison très spacieuse sur les hauteurs de Funchal qui vous donne une envie d'y revenir un jour ...

Le contact pour la réservation avec Suzana est super et l'accueil lors du séjour fait par sa mère est très chaleureux; de plus la réponse au moindre problème est immédiat et efficace.

Je recommanderai cette location sans hésitation pour une grande famille.

Stilvoll und sehr geräumige Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten über Ostern ( eine Woche ) diese Unterkunft für 5 Personen gebucht.

Sie war einfach Spitze. Stilvoll eingerichtet und sehr geräumig und sauber.

Wir hatten ein Mietauto und waren in 5 min in der City und am Supermarkt, somal ein kleiner Markt / Pizzeria (total leckere Pizzen) auch per Fuss zu erreichen ist.

Der Hahn weckte uns früh, so dass wir unsere Tage auf Madeira immer früh beginnen konnten :-) was auch unser Ziel war.

Das Wetter ließ es auch zu , dass wir morgens auf der Terasse frühstücken konnten, da die Sitzecke sich auf der Sonnenseite befand.

Der Blick in den Garten auf die Zitronenbäumchen und das safte Grün war einfach top.

Ich würde jederzeit diese Unterkunft wieder buchen, da sie eine gute preiswerte Alternative ist. Es stimmt alles , der Vermieter Susan Costa hat uns jederzeit unsere Fragen beantwortet und vor Ort hat sich ihre Mama gekümmert.

Stilvoll und sehr geräumige Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren sehr angetan von der Unterkunft, die sehr stilvoll, liebevoll eingerichtet ist. Der Garten war ein kleiner Hingucker und wird mit sehr viel Liebe gestaltet. Für Langschläfer ist die Unterkunft allerdings nicht, da der Hahn uns relativ früh am morgen weckte und wir unseren Morgen bei einem leckeren Frühstück auf der geräumigen Terasse beginnen konnten.

Es war alles da , was wir für eine Woche Madeira benötigten und hier gibt es nichts zu nörgeln. Wir würden die Unterkunft jederzeit weiterempfehlen.

A lovely house - except in winter

  • 4 of 5

Villa Costa is a lovely house, large, modern, very well equipped, practical and delicate. And the owners are splendid - fantastic hospitality and friendliness! They really gave us very important help on our stay.

We stayed in the house 5 weeks for Christmas and January 2014/2015. It was a somewhat unusual cold winter, but the house was very cold at this period. (16-18 Celsius) The house is very spacious and there is no heating (a small fan heater did not help much)A guest who stayed there another winter wrote in the guest-book that the house was to cold for winter, so it probably is relevant for more than this winter. But for the rest of the year - it is highly recommended!
