Beautiful house in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything we needed, and even more. It is more beautiful than what the pictures show. The views are amazing. It is perfectly located, not too far from Funchal but quiet, and very convenient to visit the island. Linda was very helpful. We hope to come back soon to Cala Bela Vista.

Lovely villa - lots of space and a superb view

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic villa with everything you could want and excellent standard . The views were breathtaking. Ideally placed for exploring this beautiful island. The staff on the site were very helpful and even a bought round a bottle of bubbly for my wife's birthday! Very impressed with the amount of times the villa was cleaned and linen was changed. Would definitely recommend this villa to others and looking forward to returning again.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

This house is fantastic, we had a very nice stay there. You can find everything necessary in the kitchen, the bedrooms have a wonderful view as well as anywhere in the house. Beds are really comfortable. Cleaning is done frequently. The swimming pool (heated) is very big and warm. We loved swimming in the evening, we were alone in the swimming pool most of the time. Being close to Funchal makes it very easy to get anywhere in the island quickly. Supermarket is only 5 minutes away. I hope of coming back soon.

An ideal villa in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

Stunning property with amazing views. A very clean and well maintained villa with very spacious rooms. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Linda was a very welcoming face upon arrival and Norberta was kind enough to offer us an extended check out time due to our evening flight, which was very much appreciated. Location is a 15 minute drive from Funchal so not necessary to hire a car if you want a relaxing week (without any driving!) and a taxi into Funchal is only 15 Euro one way, if you need to visit the Supermarket etc. We would have no hesitation in renting this property again or recommending it to friends and family. Plenty to see and do on the island and we look forward to visiting Madeira again soon. The only negative point was the opening times of the golf restaurant, the resort literature implied the restaurant was open later on Tuesday evenings, so that was the day we chose to eat there. We arrived at 7.45 but were informed last orders for food were 7.30. Thankfully they still agreed to serve us (after we had walked up the steep hill to get there!) but the food wasn't really that great. I ordered the calamari and it was very over cooked. Apart from that one minor negative point, we cannot fault anything else with our stay, it was fantastic.

la casa es fantástica, cómoda y con unas vistas increíbles de Funchal y el mar. Estuvimos 7 personas y teníamos todas las comodidades posibles. Todos los días desayunábamos y cenábamos en la terraza y las chicas hemos pasado horas en el jardín. La piscina está "pegada" a la casa por lo que estábamos en 4 pasos.

las habitaciones, los baños, la cocina......todo es espectacular. Estuvimos muy a gusto.Gracias

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at this stunning villa. The view from almost every window is sublime - there is even a spectacular view from the shower. The villa has everything you might need and the kitchen in particular is very well equipped with everything you might need. Weighing scales, cake tins and sharp knives are not usually found in holiday homes so is was a pleasant surprise.

The villa is beautifully furnished with beautiful furniture and artwork so it really does feel like a home from home. The garden area is delightful and plenty big enough for our toddler to run around. We loved the terrace outside the kitchen for drinks and the odd meal - if only the weather had been kinder!

We were three generations (grandparents, us and our toddler son) and the villa suited us all perfectly though there are lots of hard steps so we had to keep a close eye on our son (and my elderly father!).

The pool could hardly be closer so we didn't miss having our own pool at all. In fact it was far safer with a toddler in tow. There is a nice honesty bar and children's play room at the pool too and it was nice to be able to swim in a good sized pool rather than a smaller private one. It was almost always either empty or just one other family/couple swimming. We loved it!

We will hopefully return. We loved being so close to Funchal as we have previously rented villas in Calheta. We also enjoyed the use of the clubhouse restaurant and hotel spa.

The only improvements would be cushions for the outdoor seating (there were cushions for the loungers) and a decent coal BBQ. The gas BBQ was a little disappointing. But these are minor niggles.

We love madeira and this villa made out holiday very special. The photos simply do not do it justice.
