About the property

Just the views already guarantee an unforgettable holiday

Spacious, well-maintained family house, at the coastline and boulevard of the beautiful and above all very cosy village of Sao Vicente. Luxuriously equipped, double living room with views of the sea, sun loungers, comfortable armchairs, a couch and a fireplace, free Wi-Fi, free parking space in front of the door, The spacious bedrooms provide comfortable beds: 1 with a king-size boxspring mattress, a sea view, an en-suite bathroom and a balcony. The other one has two single boxspring-mattress beds. The separate bathroom has a bathtub, a toilet and sea view. The spacious and luxurious kitchen with dining corner has a range of devices, such as a dishwasher, a washing machine, an oven, a microwave, an extra-large refrigerator with freezer drawers. There also is a large outdoor kitchen with a barbecue zone and a dining area. A Sony Bravia wide-screen television, and a stereo with deluxe satellite package. Several terraces all have a view of the sea; they are fitted with wooden garden furniture, in a private, flowered garden. There are 3 bathrooms, a set of towels is provided, and beds are made. Wonderful, large house at the spectacular Sao Vicente coastline. It is unique to stay so close to the shoreline. Close, but at a safe distance, as we always say. Enjoying the many different faces and colours of the ocean during both day and night, will bring you in the right, relaxing atmosphere straight away. The "real holiday feeling" enters very quickly here. A feeling and an experience you will think about, even within several years from now. The living room, bedrooms, garden, balcony and the many terraces all offer a direct ocean view. The ocean's game of waves will captivate you, and amaze you with the many shades of blue it displays daily. Fishing, surfing, swimming, canoeing, sunbathing, hiking or being lulled to sleep by the sound or the waves. Casa Azul is located at Madeira's most beautiful side. Next to the robust seashore, your eyes are constantly amazed by the great nature. Waterfalls, mountains, lavadas (ancient irrigation channels), caves, woods, flowers (all year long). It is stunningly beautiful. Do you still feel like having an active moment? Maybe you would like some swimming in the deep blue ocean or a natural swimming pool, fishing, canoeing, mountainbiking, hiking along the lavadas, dolphin spotting, tuna fishing, safari riding or just shopping in capital city Funchal (only a 40-minute drive away). There are plenty of options. In the village, you will find, apart from friendly people, a very cosy atmosphere. Enjoying the outdoor life is always possible, because everything stays open all year long. There are several nice restaurants in the village and along the seashore. Do you feel like preparing a meal yourself? No problem, the village has several bakeries and two supermarkets. So you can go out for having a meal, or get what you need for cooking in the supermarket...furthermore, it is still amazingly inexpensive in here! A cup of espresso, for example, costs less than a euro!

About Saskia Jacobs

May I introduce myself? My name is Saskia Jacobs and I was born in the Netherlands. With my partner, we visited Madeira 10 years ago: we immediately fell in love with it. So badly in love that within a week we bought a holiday house in there. We never regretted it though, because it is paradise in here! There is a lot of lovely, varied nature, a friendly and helpful population, and tasteful food and drinks for attractive prices. Because of the very pleasant temperatures, and the shops and terraces that are open all year long. We would love to introduce you as well to this wonderful place on earth. For this purpose, we restored a traditional house on a unique panoramic location. So I would say...let the falling in love begin! If you prefer something more luxurious and located directly at the coastline, then Casa Azul provides the right view. We are there for you, and we hope to welcome you soon!

Saskia Jacobs purchased this house in 2007

Why Saskia Jacobs chose Sao Vicente

Why we bought this house? In fact, we had no other option; it was love at first sight! When driving from the bustling Funchal, full of buildings, to the northern coast of the island, you will enter a true paradise. You will pass lovely mountains, lush valleys, and many vineyards. And then this marvellous seafront, with its spectacular waves and the plenty shades of blue.

What makes this house unique

Directly at the coastline of Sao Vicente there are not too many houses; there cannot be built new ones either. Casa Azul is located at this lovely coast, which thus is a unique advantage. You hear, smell and sea the deep blue ocean from about all terraces, the sleeping room and living room.

Perfect stay at the Casa Azul Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just competed a lovely, relaxing 12-day stay at the Casa Azul. The directions provided by Saskia from the airport to Sao Vicente were excellent.

Saskia, Jan (owners) and Ana (caretaker) met us at a local restaurant for a coffee, introductions and recommendations for local dining including a great traditional buffet , bakeries, grocery and local MEO store.

Following a short drive to the house, we were given a tour and instructions on operating the TV/audio system, wood stove, washing machine etc. We found the house to be even better than the pictures on the website and was perfect for 4 adults. Abosolutely great WiFi connection. We appreciated the tourist information and books that were available.

The house was clean, nicely decorated, with comfortable beds, lots of towels and a well stocked kitchen including all the basics. The weather was a little cool so the wood stove in the living room provided great heat and cooking fresh fish on the BBQ was wonderful.

We found the house to be very comfortable in every way and we felt as if we were at home. We were lulled to sleep night by the ocean waves. There is a short walking path along the ocean front with access just a short walk from the house.

We had a small issue with the automatic gate but Jan and Saskia came immediately and fixed the problem. We appreciated the prompt response and outcome! Other rental properties have not been so responsive.

We returned home rested and happy. We would stay again if we return to Madeira and would recommend to our friends and family.

Thank you Saskia, Jan and Ana for a great stay.

Perfect villa at north of Madeira

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Casa Azul over 2015 December's Holidays. Saskia and Jan were amazing hosts during our stay. Casa Azul is the perfect villa to stay at the north of Madeira as it is settle in the middle and towns like Porto Moniz and Punta Delgada are a 15 min drive. Casa Azul is very well maintained, nicely decorated, with all the amenities and comforts one could need during holidays, we even turned the chimney on! Funchal is a 30/40 min drive through a well maintained highway. We always find a hike to do, a town to visit, a restaurant to try... Madeira is worth visiting!

Awesome Views and Super Clean

  • 5 of 5

The little path that winds you up to the cabin lets you know you're in for a treat upon your initial drive to the cabin. When you first step out onto the deck overlooking the mountains, it's a beautiful site. You can see for miles. My wife, baby girl and I just sat out there on the rocking chairs, talked and breathed in the fresh air.

The cabin is super clean and very well-appointed. We take several trips to the mountains each year and this one is our favorite so far.

There were a few nights where I popped a cold beer, got in the hot tub and sat there until it got dark.

We came to celebrate our 3rd anniversary and so far it's our favorite yet!

Thanks Fred and Jan for providing such a lovely cabin and awesome experience!

Ein Traumurlaub in einem wunderschönen Haus

  • 5 of 5

Casa Azul ist ein Traumhaus. Die Beschreibung des Hauses wurde in Wirklichkeit weit übertroffen. Die Ausstattung des Hauses ist sehr luxoriös und übertrifft die Anforderungen an ein Ferienhaus.

Die Lage des Hauses ist wunderschön. Man hat von jedem Zimmer ein Blick aufs Meer. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig und von der Straße hört man sehr wenig.

Das Haus ist sehr hochwertig ausgestattet und sehr gepflegt und sauber.

Die Räume sind groß und wohnlich eingerichtet.

Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet und es macht Spass darin zu kochen.

Das Wohnzimmer ist heimelig und es ist schön sich vor dem Ofen zu entspannen,

Die Kontakte mit dem Besitzer war sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Bei Schwierigkeiten wird gerne geholfen.

Die Hausverwalterin ist eine sehr nette , hilfbereite und freundliche junge Frau, die jeder Zeit erreichbar war. Die Verständigung war sehr gut, da sie sehr gut englisch spricht.

Ich würde das Haus jeder Zeit weiterempfehlen. Wir haben schon während des Aufenthaltes das Haus an Andere weiter empfohlen.

Der Ort selbst ist nicht sehr groß, bietet aber alles was man zum Leben braucht. Er ist ruhig und idyllisch und nicht so hektisch wie z.B. Funschal.

Alles in allem ein wunderschönes Haus und eine herrlilche Umgebung mit netten freundliche Menschen. Wir werden wieder kommen. Danke für die schöneZeit

Locatioin is phenominal!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! That is the thought that went through my head every time I looked out the windows of this house. The main bedroom has a window and patio door that face out onto the amazing, epic ocean waves. It was breathtaking every time. We always had a window or door open so we could hear the wonderful sound of the crashing waves. The house itself was beautiful and had everything we needed and more. Lots of thoughtful details throughout the house. Umbrellas by the door, which we luckily did not have to use, little back pack and canvas bag etc. Wine sleeves in fridge. They really had thought of anything a person might need. The house is decorated with interesting antiques and big bonus points for the reclining chairs in the living room! The bed was big and comfy with nice soft sheets, fluffy pillows and plenty of towels provided. Parking right outside the property was also very handy. Location is phenomenal! We traveled all over the island and, in all honesty, did not see a place we liked better than ours! It is a short drive outside the village of St. Vincent, which is quaint, but we actually spent more time at the handy strip of restaurants, supermarket, wine bar and bakery just a 2 min drive away (or leisurely walk). This area was always busy, as the beach there is very beautiful and rugged as well. I would highly recommend staying here.

Onvergetelijk mooi uitzicht!

  • 5 of 5

Mooi, ruim, schoon en lux ingericht huis. Een werkelijk fantastisch uitzicht vanuit alle kamers, tuin en terrassen. Ruime overdekte buiten keuken en bbq plaats maakt het feest compleet. Heerlijk relaxen en genieten van het buiten leven en het ruisen van de zee. Helemaal top

Casa Azul is located at the Sao Vicente Boulevard with its spectacular coastline. Because of the great waves, the beginning of the boulevard is a popular surf spot. Here you can have a go at it yourself, or you can enjoy the surfers' wonderful tricks. At the end of this boulevard: Club Naval. Here, a swimming basin was constructed, so you can easily dive into the ocean. The children even have their own basin. There are facilities for changing, taking a shower, using the toilet, enjoying a drink, having tapas or even having a full meal. Surf gear, sun loungers and canoes are for rent in this place. The coast is also a favourite among line-fishing enthusiasts. The Laurasilve woods are a 10-minute drive away. This is a conservation area with lovely waterfalls, panoramic views and hiking trails called 'lavandas'. Sau Vicente is also well known for its volcanic caves, which are open to visitors. You could also hike along the chalk route. In town, but even more so along the shore, there are loads of possibilities for enjoying a drink of eating something on the cosy terraces, which are opened all year long. Sao Vicente is also famous for the plenty of festivities and activities it organises regularly. A few examples are marathons, triathlons, car racing events or a range of traditional town festivities.
