The Ultimate 'State of the Art' Holiday Property

  • 5 of 5

We. as a family, have for many years stayed in Villas/Holiday properties in locations including the USA, Canada, The Algarve, Tunisia, France, Cyprus, Spain/Majorca, The Channel Islands, North and South of Ireland and, of course, Madeira.

This Villa is the ultimate in terms of the architecture, the layout, the furnishings, ( with a few reservations), the facilities and the location. It is extremely clean and well maintained.

The Lounge is literally in the sky and provides stupendous views over Funchal.

I cannot praise Colleta enough - she was a star ! Call with a problem and she was there almost immediately and it was attended to or advice was given in the most charming and helpful manner.

Whilst the furnishings and equipment were first class there were a number of very small matters which, as a 'semi'- retired Architect and Interior Designer, I consider deserve attention.

The very large and heavy doors to the pool and patio, the patio toilet,

and from the 3rd floor corridor to the laundry room would benefit from

having handles fitted, both inside and outside.

Similarly the sliding windows/doors to the 3rd floor bedrooms and, in particular the lounge doors require handles to make them easier to open and close.

There are no small shelves in the showers in which to put soaps and shampoos.

The bedrooms would benefit from having a small chair.

There are myriads of switches for lights, windows blinds and curtains.

The inclusion of a guide as to the function and location of the switches would have been a great help. ( Perhaps in more than one language ?).

The ladies in my party complained about the poor lighting around the

mirrors in the bedrooms which were not directional and which didn't help in applying make-up !

Similarly there are no illuminated shaving mirrors for men with an adjacent electrical plug for electrical shavers. !

I would have liked a pool thermometer to convince the ladies in my party that the water was not cold !!!

Please do not consider these observations as being destructive they are intended to be both constructive and helpful.

In conclusion I would not hesitate to recommend the Sky Lounge Residence to family, friends and anyone who asks.

Thank you for making our vacation as 'One to remember !!

We'll be back again.

Kind regards,

David J. Wood.

( And on behalf of Pamela, Brian and Valerie).

A bakery and café and a small selection of restaurants are a mere 500 metres away, and the nearest supermarket 700m away.

Skylounge Residence is located in a traditional residential area of Funchal, and a downhill walk into the town centre (800 m away) will take around 10 minutes.
