Casa Amaro Mar

  • 4 of 5

Casa Amaro Mar is a very nice and fresh holiday house. The beds are good and most of the things you need to make your food is there. There were sometimes not enough hot water for the shower. We thought that a car was necessary. Over all we liked the house and the sorrundings. The staff that we met were very nice and did everything they could to make our stay as pleasent as possible. We will absolutely visit Madeira again and rent from this Company.

Understated luxury with amazing views

  • 4 of 5

There is no doubt that the description of the property on the website is accurate. The views are amazing, the villa beautifully appointed and surprisingly easy to find. There is a definite wow moment when you walk in. The villa was very clean and well presented with a stack of towels neatly laid out on every bed. We were greeted with friendly professionlism and our questions answered succinctly - even when it came to a late evening telephone call to find out how the hob worked! The welcome gift of bread, milk cheese and wine was greatly appreciated, although it would have been nice if there were some hand soap provided. The pool is beautifully clean and just big enough. There are ample sun beds provided. The kitchen is well laid out and of high quality with plenty of crockery, cutlery and glasses. Wi-fi is plenty fast enough and seems to work throughout the villa. The deck that surrounds the pool could do with a bit of attention however. It is somewhat bouncy underfoot and there was a broken slat when we were there. The village is the perfect place from which to explore this stunning island. Make sure you get a diesel car if you are hiring. The very steep hills can easily stump a small engined petrol car. The supermarket in Cahleta is an easy 10 minute drive away. It is surprisingly well-stocked for a small supermarket and open til 10 every day. All the staff I spoke to had some English. Remember to have change for parking. Only a couple of downsides. The steep side road up to the villa is pretty hairy to negotiate and could really do with a barrier. Satellite TV is provided but you should be aware that there are only a handful of English channels. There is a dvd player in the second reception room but no dvds to play on it. If you have kids, you might want to consider packing some. Double glazing would be a bonus too as the constant barking of dogs throughout the night really disturbed our sleep. Obviously this is not the fault of the owners and many people may not find it an issue, but it drove me crackers! All-in-all though, this is a tremendous place to stay and one to be recommended.

Ferias Em Familia

  • 3 of 5

Gostamos muito da nossa estadia na Casa Amaro. Tem excelentes condiçoes para uma familia com crianças passar excelentes dias de descanso com conforto. Tal como os outros clientes, tambèm nos queixamos muito do latir constante dos caes que incomoda imenso o descanso, mas ....... que fazer? È algo incontrolàvel.

Foi a segunda vez que recorremos a este tipo de alojamento para ferias e recomendamos a todos.

Deixamos os nossos cumprimentos
