Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a lovely holiday here and enjoyed sitting on the garden terrace. Gilberto & Anna's help was much appreciated. The local Sa supermarket, which Gilberto directed us to, had everything we needed.

We found a reasonable selection of restaurants within walking distance, along the lavada, to the bottom of the hill and across the road. The chalet we liked, a villa cafe and around the corner The Mar Brando. The Dona Amelia and Casa Vela were also very good but a bit further down the hill. There are others in the same area which we did not try. A night out in the old town is also easy as the buses run until late.

We enjoyed our trip to watch the football at the stadium in the mountains, Nacional vs FC Porto.

There is a walkway from Praia Formosa to Camara de Lobos, about two and a half kilometres. We caught the bus to get us close to the beach , line 01, 02, 43 and 04 all take you within reasonable distance.

Very well kept villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is situated 30 minutes walk from the centre of Funchal and it is easy to get a bus back to the hospital nearby. It is close to a noisy road but I think it is difficult to find anywhere in Funchal that is not. The villa itself has been well looked after and is more like a family home than a rental property. The bedrooms have 1 double bed, 1 x 4 foot bed and one single bed. It is fully equipped with washing machine and dishwasher. Free parking outside.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and our stay in this villa and we would recommend it to anyone who is looking for great Madeira holiday.

Thanks Bruno for all your help before our holiday and thanks to Gilberto for your help and advice re some levada walks.

Modern home

  • 4 of 5

This is a very clean, modern well equipped home.

We enjoyed our month's stay. We couldn't fault the property, but we did not hire a car and we felt this is necessary as the bus stops are quite a walk from the house. And a good walk into town, alright going down but a very big uphill on the way back.One of the down sides, there is a busy main road in front of the property but the double glazing helps with the noise.

If you are prepared to hire a car this is a very good house to rent.

Ein schöner Urlaub in einem tollen Haus !!!

  • 5 of 5

Die Kommunikation mit dem Vermieter klappte prima.

Vor Ort erwartete uns ein herzlicher Empfang durch Gilberto, der hervorragend Englisch spricht.

Bei einer Führung durchs Haus wurde uns alles ganz genau erklärt und wir waren begeistert von der reichhaltigen Ausstattung. Hier fehlt wirklich nichts!

Sogar ein paar kulinarische Willkommensgeschenke standen für uns bereit.

Danach zeigte uns Gilberto einen großen Supermarkt und wartete, bis wir unsere Einkäufe erledigt hatten.

Zurück am Haus half er uns noch beim Ausladen. Welch ein Service!

Noch ein paar Anmerkungen zum Haus.

Es war sauber und auch die Außenanlage war sehr gepflegt.

Besonders gut hat uns die große überdachte Terrasse gefallen.

Jeden Abend haben wir dort gemütlich zusammengesessen und dabei das ein oder andere Getränk aus dem riesigen Kühlschrank genossen.

Den Grill haben wir ebenfalls benutzt und für gut befunden.

Im TV gab es deutsche Sender und das WLAN funktioniert einwandfrei. Auch auf der Terrasse.

Wir hatten nichts auszusetzen, aber es gibt ja auch empfindlichere Menschen.

Die Schnellstraße ist bei offenen Fenstern natürlich zu hören, ebenso die Hunde der Nachbarschaft.

Außerdem dauert es eine Weile, bis das Wasser warm wird, aber Zeit sollte man im Urlaub ja haben.

Wir können die Unterkunft nur weiterempfehlen und geben 5 Sterne! Gerne wieder!

Vielen Dank an Bruno und Gilberto für alles!

Super Aufenthalt!

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr schön, top ausgestattet und sehr sauber. Die überdachte und windgeschützte Terasse haben wir bei jedem Wetter sehr genossen.

Gilberto ist äußerst nett und hilfsbereit. Er holte uns vom Flughafen ab und brachte uns gleich zum Supermarkt, weil am nächsten Tag Feiertag war.

Am Abreisetag brachte er uns wieder zum Flughafen. Nach der ersten Woche wurde das Haus geputzt, die Bettwäsche und Handtücher gewechselt.

Wir können die Unterkunft ( die wir schon zum zweiten mal gebucht haben) nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen.

Great house for wonderful holidays

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean and well-equipped, near the city center. It's comfortable for six people. The caretaker of the house is very friendly and helpful. When we arrived, he took us to the supermarket and showed the city.

I strongly recommend this property.

P.s. Thanks GIlberto :)

A casa tem tudo o que necessitamos no dia a dia e estava bem localizada.

A pessoa que nos recebeu (Gilberto) era bastante simpático e prestável e deu-nos várias dicas sobre a ilha.

Recomendamos esta casa a qualquer pessoa.
