The house was as good as its description

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, modern, well equipped.

Although on the main road of the village it was very quiet at night.

Great little supermarket across the road and a wonderful bakery / cafe selling the most delicious breads and pastries.

Excellent value for money and would recommend it to others however you should hire a car as it is not easy to get around otherwise. But the link onto the main highway is only a minute away and that connects you to the whole island. Funchal only about 25 minutes away and the beaches of Calheta about 20 minute drive

Great Views / Wonderful Owner

  • 5 of 5

Maria's home is well kept, clean, spacious, comfortable, and has nice views. Maria and Isabel gave us a lovely greeting on arrival and were there if we needed anything. We were getting ready to leave for the airport and found that our rental car battery was out of juice. Maria stepped right in and helped us get the rental car company out to start the car and got us to the airport in time. We would not have made it without her and she was so sweet about it. I am so appreciative. The house itself was only about 10 minutes by car away from Funchal and it's a nice place at the end of the day to relax on the upper deck with a view of the water and the beautiful flowers she maintains there. When you decide to call it a night, you have a lovely lit up view of a church on the opposite hill from your bed. A nice convenience is the local store and bakery just across the street. I'm glad we chose to stay here.

Most grateful to you Maria!

Wishing you many blessings,

Great value for a lovely home with a fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean, very spacious home , with all the basic cookware and utensils provided in the kitchen for preparing and serving meals . It is convenientky located across from a grocery store. And the view!! It is stunning looking out over the valley from the terrace or living room. Maria was prompt in corresponding and answering questions, friendly and had an English speaking friend meet us to show us around. We vacationed there over Christmas so temperatures were cooler on Maderia that time of year and though we found the house a little cold at times (no heat) as we sat around (the very comfortable roomy plush sofa) in the evenings , we were warm at night in our beds with plenty of blankets provided and lovely soft, flannel sheets. . We noted an A/C in our bedroom so no worries in the summer . The beds were too firm for our American tastes--our only complaint. We felt the house was a very good value for the money!

Ruime woning met alles wat je nodig hebt.

  • 5 of 5

De woning is erg ruim en alles wat je nodig zou kunnen hebben is aanwezig. Bij aankomst werden we hartelijk ontvangen door de eigenaresse die ons ook nog van leuke eettips en wandeltips heeft voorzien.

Verder was de bakker en winkel aan de overkant van de straat ook erg aangenaam! Elke ochtend verse broodjes! De woning is eenvoudig te bereiken en je kunt prima parkeren voor de deur. We hebben een heerlijke tijd gehad en bevelen deze accommodatie van harte aan.
