About Karen Pickering

Our first visit to Madeira was for our Honeymoon 30+ years ago and we have been returning ever since. It was our visit last Christmas in which we found the house and are extremely happy to share it with you. We live in the UK, have one Son and are both working professionals.

Karen Pickering purchased this villa in 2015

Why Karen Pickering chose Funchal

We have been travelling to Madeira for 30 years and have taken great care to obtain a property which suits the high expectations of visitors to Madeira.

What makes this villa unique

It was watching the cruise ships on New Years eve from the terrace which convinced us that this was the right property for us. We had been searching in this area for many years and the view sealed the deal ! We have just returned having spent 2 weeks watching the dolphins playing in the sea, a magical breakfast experience.

Brilliant villa, brilliant location !

  • 5 of 5

Karen and Mike are great owners with really good communications and information. Finding the villa was easy and we were welcomed by Mirela who was very helpful throughout. The garage is perfect (plenty of room for even a large car), as parking is difficult given the villas close vicinity to the centre of Funchal. The villa is in a quite location with great sea views. It is very modern, clean and well equipped with comfy beds and inside/outside furniture. The location means that it is only a few minutes walk to the nearest cafe and many good restaurants, with the town centre a few minutes further. We would definitely return to this villa and would highly recommend it.

The villa and the service given by the owners surpassed our expectations. The photos don’t do it justice as it is even more stunning! Fantastic location and every possible thing you might need is supplied and all at a very high level of quality. We would thoroughly recommend this beautiful villa.

The property was clean tidy and of a high spec, just what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

we found the villa to be spacious and very comfortable. We particularly liked the Aircon and en suites in each bedroom, along with the balcony and terrace space which would be ample even if the villa had 6 people in it. The kitchen was also fully spec’d with a great coffee machine being the highlight for us. We spent most of our time outside so the comfortable outdoor seating was also much welcomed. The owners have clearly thought of everything well done to them!

We had a fantastic 2 week stay this January. Everything was perfect, from the chauffeur collecting us at the airport, the welcome we received at the villa by Ricardo, the villa itself which was appointed to the highest standard we have ever had, Mirella cleaning and looking after us, the general attention to detail which the owners should be very proud of, the gorgeous views and the icing on the cake was the weather! We could ask for no more and will definitely be booking again in the near future. A truly wonderful place to stay within easy walking distance of the town. If you are thinking of booking, then don't hesitate as you won't be disappointed.
