Exceptional view and close to the nature!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Viewpoint house during one week in February and had a fabulous time.

The house contains of a kitchen, with an attached outdoor dining area (very well covered from wind and rain), one bedroom, one bathroom with access from the bedroom and another bathroom with access from the patio. The bedroom can be quite cold during this time of the year, but as soon we mentioned to our host he showed up with a portable radiator and the problem was solved.

The patio is fantastic place to get some sun, chill, relax and just enjoy the spectacular view!

And the attached garden with herbs and vegetables is very nice, but can need a little bit more maintenance.

J Nelson Silva is the best host we met so far, he is very thoughtful and mend about his guests. He met us when arriving to the house and helped us with the luggage, and there were some wine, fruits and cakes waiting for us in the house. When leaving, he was also available and assisted in an excellent way.

To enjoy Calheta and its surroundings you definitely need a car.

We were not able to park the car at the parking area, instead we had our rental car parked on the street (without any problems) not too far away. But to be aware, there are quite many stairs to reach the house from the road.

If you want to stay close to the nature, with an exceptional view, hear the ocean and the wind we can definitely recommend the Viewpoint house in Lombo do Doutor!

What stunning views

  • 5 of 5

What a find, this little house is all it says it is, perched high on the cliff with stunning views, all the amenities and equipment you will ever need. there's nothing better than cooking up on the BBQ pit in the evening and enjoying a couple of beers in the tranquil surrounding on the balcony. There's an abundance of herbs, salads and fruits in a garden that you have access to.

Joao is the perfect host met us on arrival and provided tea, coffee, wine and Madeira wine and cake. any problems he was on hand to assist and even gave us a gift of Madeira liqueurs as we left. Thoroughly recommend at stay at viewpoint house, Thank you Joao for your hospitality.

Breathtaking view, crashing waves, fragrant gardens, and friendliest host ever!

  • 5 of 5

Finding our way to this remote, gorgeous and fragrant spot on the southern coast of Madeira was worth the effort. Nelson couldn't do enough for us -- welcoming us with wine, cake and fruit from the ample gardens. The photos don't do justice to the breathtaking views, straight down to the wild Atlantic (made wilder during our late October visit, which featured more rain/wind than average). The Viewpoint House -- more than 100 steps down from the parking area -- consists of two levels: the terrace, kitchen, glassed-in dining area and full bath below, and the bedroom and a second full bath above. The protected yet open dining area worked very well for us, providing shelter during downpours but still allowing us to enjoy the view, the rainbows and the and tropical plantings. Though the drive in and out (and all over mountainous Madeira, for that matter) required strong driving skills, the town of Calheta, with restaurants and grocery store, was easy to access from Viewpoint House. Most memorable, though, was Nelson's exceptional friendliness, which left us with a very positive impression of Madeira's people. Obrigada!

Owner's Response: Thank you Paul and Rose, for coming to Madeira and you have chosen to Viewpoint House to stay. I would like to have provided a better climate, since during your stay it rained a lot. You'll have to come back to experience this magnificent place with better weather. Do not forget to invite your friends to visit Madeira. It is a small island, but with so much to see and enjoy. A hug for you, the size of the world!

We want to say the 12 days we spent on Madeira in the Viewpoint where like living on top of the world. Our host Nelson did everything to make our stay so memorable. We shared many good times with him and met his wonderful family. The Viewpoint is a must if going to Madeira or one of the other houses as I had a chance to see them all and I could highly recommend any of them. We so enjoyed the garden and used a few veggies to make a omelette for breakfast also thank you for the beautiful welcome package. There are many things to see and easy access to the beach or to the grocery store for anything you need. Well we can only say THANK YOU Nelson we miss you and your family.

Hugs Mr & Mrs JO JO

Amazing House, Wonderful View, Perfect Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 days on Madeira for our Honeymoon Trip - and it was perfect. Nelson was a great host, we couldn't have had a better house. The viewpoint house is wonderful, it has a beautiful view (including the sunset). Nelson took care of everything we asked him. It was a very personal and unforgetable vacation - even if only for 4 days. The house has a garden where we could take anything we wanted from. There are also a lot of fruits we could eat. Grilling is possibile, we did it twice. The house and was cleaner than any hotel I ever was. All in all, I would not hesitate to come back and I hope we manage to do this some day.

Madeira is also very beautiful, lots of different facets. We went there in October and the weather was very good. It did rain some times, but not long and it stayed very warm all the time. We still could take a bath. The food was also very good, especially Nelsons recommendation.

Thanks you Nelson, very much!

Idyllic and peaceful place, wonderful views!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful vacation and really didn't want to leave. Although January, we were able to have breakfast on the terrace and also a late dinner after a long hike. The wind and sun protected outdoor seating area with a wonderful view to the Atlantic was our favorite place from the first day! The photos do not promise too much. Everything was just as we imagined and even better! We were able to view the other two Houses which are also great. We will definitely be back! The House is lokated on an idyllic cliff, surrounded by gardens full of tropical fruit trees and vegetables, but also central in Calheta. It was a pleasure to sit in the garden and listen to the birds. Nelson offered us self-grown organic vegetables and fruits directly from the garden. Nelson and his family are very very nice people, friendly and helpful with absolutely everything and we are looking forward to seeing them again. The central location offered an ideal access to the Encumeada with many starting points for Levadas and mountain trails. We quickly reached the coastal roads and other popular places. Calheta has many restaurants, bars and cafes, beach promenade, sandy beach for swimming, a small marina and everything you need. We really felt at home!

Wir verbrachten einen wundervollen Urlaub und wären am liebsten nicht abgereist. Obwohl Januar, konnten wir schon die Frühstückszeit auf der Terrasse genießen und ein spätes Abendessen nach einer langen Wanderung. Die wind- und sonnengeschützte Sitzecke im Freien, mit Blick auf den Atlantik war vom ersten Tag unser Lieblingsplatz! Die Fotos versprechen nicht zu viel. Alles war so, wie wir es uns vorgestellt haben und besser! Wir besichtigten auch die beiden anderen Häuser, die auch toll sind. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder! Das Haus liegt in idyllischer Alleinlage zentral in Calheta, umgeben von Gärten mit tropischen Obstbäumen und Gemüse. Es war toll, einfach nur im Garten zu sitzen um den Vögeln zuzuhören. Nelson bot uns biologisch angebautes Obst und Gemüse aus dem Garten an. Nelson und seine Familie sind sehr sehr nette Menschen, freundlich und hilfsbereit bei allem und wir freuen uns, sie wiederzusehen. Die zentrale Lage bot idealen Zugang zur Hochebene mit vielen Starts zu Levada- und Bergpfaden. Wir erreichten schnell die Küstenstraßen und weitere Ausflugsorte. Calheta hat viele Restaurantes, Bars und Cafès, Strandpromenade, Sandstrand zum Baden, einen kleinen Hafen und alles was man braucht. Wir fühlten uns zu Hause.
