About the property

Our space is not exactly a 5-star hotel, but is fully equipped with everything you may need to enjoy a fantastic holiday. It has a bed for two above the seats, and the second bed and more spacious is created by lowering the living room table. The kitchen is equipped with refrigerator, two burner stove, sink and all the tools necessary to cook and eat. This will be surely the best choice for people who want to be in touch with mother nature and enjoy every day to the fullest, without having schedules to return home, be free ;)

The four existing windows plus the sky lights allows you to enjoy the outdoor environment while you are cooking or simply resting and all have mosquito nets and blakouts.

It has also a generator and a converter that allows to obtain power to 220W, so you can power up your phone, personal computer, music and photo devices, without having to turn on the generator. There is also a boiler that produces hot water for your shower :) in the full equipped WC. We provide all towels, linens, pillows and blankets.

About Bastos Joel

We are a young couple who fell in love with motorcaravanning in 2012, after an amazing experience in our country - Portugal.

Later that year, we had the opportunity to purchase our camper and now decided to make it available for everyone who wants to try out a new way to discover our island (Madeira), with total freedom to sleep every day in a different place.

We also intend to meet new people, exchange experiences, practice our English, be happy and most of all provide our future guests unforgettable holidays.

Bastos Joel purchased this mobile home in 2013

Why Bastos Joel chose São Martinho

This is a special space because it was reconstructed, painted and decorated by us, reflecting some of our energy. It is fully equipped with all that you possibly need on your holidays including a table and chairs to enjoy the views outside and have your breakfast in the most wild place you can imagine. For us it can be a escape in the weekends, for others a way of life and for you we hope it represents a memorable experience of freedom.

What makes this mobile home unique

A baby chair can be provided for an extra fee.

Pick up and drop off at the airport is possible but an extra fee will be applied per trajectory.

Internet wireless router service is also possible for an extra fee.

Rules of the house:

You must be at least 28 years old.

We ask for a security deposit in cash which is fully refunded on the day of check-out.

Some questions that may worry our future guests without any need:

Every time you need water to supply the deposit, remember that you`re on a small island, and you have water in abundance, so don’t stress because you can always ask a local where is the nearest water point and of course we`ll also suggest some water points easy to find and with easy access in distinct parts of the Island.

Sanitary deposit is very practical to empty once there are a few public wc available all over the Island and even on almost every fuel station.

Madeira Island is the perfect place to explore by this way once it is possible to stay safely overnight wherever you wish, just keeping in mind you are well parked. We know some fantastic places to advise you but of course you are free to chose!! This is one of the great advantages:)

Truly unique experience exploring a special island with special people!

  • 5 of 5

Well, where to start! Me and my girlfriend hired Lucio and Claudia’s beautiful campervan and we couldnt of wished for a better holiday. It truly is the best way of exploring the beautiful island of Madeira having total freedom and no worries of having to go back to a hotel/apartment plotting up wherever you want.

We camped in some unique spots and enjoyed the island to its full potential! This is ideal for anyone who doesn't want your average holiday avoiding tourist hotels and places.

Lucio and Claudia were truly amazing hosts and were available whenever we needed them, even meeting during the holiday for a poncha or two and gorgeous food 👌🏼

The van has everything you need in shower, toilet, kitchen etc and we ate from the camper most nights using supermarkets across the island with plenty of places to stop and rest, fill up fuel and access whatever is needed.

This isn’t the last time we will be using this van as there is much more we both want to explore so it is highly reccommended from me and my girlfriend! Beautiful island with beautiful people.

Obrigado Lucio and Claudia,

Take care and see you again soon.

Peace and love,

Nic and Becca xxx

Best vacation ever...

  • 5 of 5

7 nights campervan rent in Madeira was so great that we are going to do that again as soon as possible. Hosts was very pleasant and helpful and everything went so smoothly. Good contacting before arriving and 24/7 "helpdesk" via Whatsapp with excellent tips make this holiday so easy and safe. Campervan was good enough for any kind of holiday. All around Madeira were many places to spend nights included all services you need with campervan. I really recommend this for everyone. Thanks again Cláudia and Lúcio, much love and se U next year <3 Cheers from Finland. Juha, Nina & Lempi

An unforgettable adventure!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful and exciting way to discover a beautiful island! We went to Madeira in June 2017 for our honeymoon and decided to travel around by campervan - something we have never done before. This comfortable home on wheels offered the ideal way to explore so many bits of Madeira we would have otherwise not managed to enjoy them as we did. Claudia and Lucio have been lovely, always on the phone when you needed them and happy to give tips and advise! This has definitely been one of the greatest trips ever!

Thank you very much and all the best!!

Amazing Christmas trip

  • 5 of 5

We spent one an amazing week for Christmas in Madeira with Luçio and Claudia campervan.

Everything was perfect :

- Before the trip : they gave us advices and all the informations necessary for our trip : places to visit, spots for sleeping, advices for parking, restaurants and bars adress, activites, description and informations about the campervan …

- During the trip : Luçio and Claudia were very available and reagents when we had some questions during our trip. The campervan is full equiped, very clean and usefull. We did all the round of the island and we stopped everywhere we wanted, we didn't have any problem it is very safe. Travel with a campervan was the best option to enjoy Madeira : sleeping in amazing spots, stop when and everywhere you want, don’t waste time …

- After the trip : we enjoyed to talk with them on the way back to the airport

Claudia and Luçio are very friendly, we hope to see them again !

Thank you so much !
