About Simone Silva

Paul and I fell in love with Madeira the first time we visited and purchased Magnolia house on our first visit. We visit Madeira every year, to keep up the standards of the property both for ourselves and the guests who stay there. We are retired and love travelling and sunshine. Paul loves golf so is a member of both the golf courses in Madeira and we have met many friends since we first visited. It now feels like home to us.

Simone Silva purchased this house in 2007

Why Simone Silva chose Madeira

We chose Garajau because it has everything to offer whether your are on holiday or live in Madeira. It has shops, restaurants, bakery, car hire, newsagents and supermarkets. We chose Magnolia house because of its close location to the beach, the bus stop into Funchal and all the amenities within a 2 minute level walk. Magnolia house is in a perfect location. It is also in an upmarket residential area so avoids the noise and night life of Funchal but it is only a 10 minute bus or taxi ride away.

What makes this house unique

Magnolia house has 4 bedrooms and 2 en suite and a main bathroom. It also has a downstairs toilet. It has sea views. It is open plan with a large spiral staircase with a glass roof so the house is very light. The reason we chose this house was its excellent location and as Paul loves to cook, the large outside BBQ area appealed to him. We love the house.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in this lovely well equipped house. Everything you need and more is provided, just pack your clothes and go. Cafes, shops and bars are just a short walk away in Garajau. There is an excellent bus service into Fungchal and other areas. Convenient for the airport which is just 15 minutes away. Magnolia House is an excellent home away from home.

May break

  • 5 of 5

A well positioned, equiped house ideal for all amenities within walking distances. A wonderful few days relaxing in a lovely home.

The house was within easy access of the main routes to all tourist areas. The house was on a bus route for Funchal which was great to leave to car at 'home'.

I would highly recommend this 'home' as a great find. Well done the owners for presenting a lovely home in a central area.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Magnolia House for a month and enjoyed it every day. The house was well fitted, comfortable and convenient to Funchal. The outdoor space was fantastic (just needed to be a bit warmer to really benefit). We didn't book a car but has great bus service from Garajau to Funchal all days and taxis were easily available and relatively inexpensive. Would recommend the home to anyone wanting a larger, comfortable and well-maintained place for a stay near Funchal.

Spacious and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely 2 week holiday in Madeira in Magnolia House, which was spacious and very well equipped. The local shops, bars and restaurants provide all you need but we travelled by bus into Funchal and beyond most days using the regular, cheap and reliable bus service. The January weather was far warmer than the forecasts would have you believe. High points were, cooking in the outdoor bread oven, Levada walks, Mozart's Restaurant in Funchal and Fado evening with the locals in the bar on the Canico road. Claudio and Simone are available to help with any glitches, bringing extra wood for the outdoor oven and picking us up from the airport. Thanks for making our first trip to Madeira so good, we'll be back.

Stunning property, beautifully furnished

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house, very well equipped, lovely balcony overlooking the ocean. A short walk to bakeries and cafés. I thoroughly enjoyed our boat trip dolphin watching, and drive around the island. Funchal has everything you need, lovely restaurants, shops and pavement cafés where you can enjoy listening to violinists, guitarists and singers. I was lucky to be there during the fabulous firework displays, amazing! I would definitely recommend this villa and madeira for a lovely holiday! Linda

Magnolia house is a 2 minute walk from the centre of Garajau , which contains all the necessary shops to make your self -catering holiday a pleasurable experience, including a varied choice of restaurants for those nights you might choose to dine out. It is 10 minutes by bus to the bustling city of Funchal, where you can enjoy the shops or pass your time sight seing, perhaps taking the cable car to Monte. Canico de Baixo, Lido Galo Mar and Praia dos Magos are all about 5 minutes away and are excellent places for swimming. Camacha is about 10minutes away and is the centre of the wicker industry and is home to one of Madeira’s largest handicraft centres. Machico is about 15 minutes away from Garajau and was the former capital of the island, here you can enjoy a walk along the new promenade and its lovely man-made sandy beach and marina. Walking is a popular leisure pursuit in Madeira along the famous Levadas, (fresh water canals) most of which are situated within a reasonable distance.
