About the property

Villa with one bedroom, private terrace and access to the property pool

This wonderful house is inserted in a centennial property right in front of the sea in the Old Town of Funchal. With the freshness of being protected by stone walls and surrounded by garden, it has a private terrace right in front of the sea overlooking the bay of Funchal and has access to the pool of the property shared with two other houses.

The property entrance as well as the pool are shared with Isabel's Villa (ad 672230) and Villas can be rented together.

Recently renovated it has an equipped kitchen, a spacious bedroom with dressing room and a modern WC with walk in shower.

The modern, comfortable décor is designed to make guests feel at ease in the tranquility of a garden while lounging by the sea from the windows.

The property is located in the Old Town of Funchal in a quiet street but with restaurants and bars less than 5 minutes walking distance. The city center is less than a 10-minute walk away, which allows many guests to dispense the car. However street parking is free, easy and safe.

  • 5 of 5

Great location in the Old Town and the elevated position means there are beautiful views over the sea and to Funchal. Greeted by Mara, the housekeeper, who made us very welcome. She showed us round the property and there was a lovely welcome pack of provisions. Property was spotlessly clean and well appointed. We met Carlos, the property owner, on many occasions and he was always keen to ensure that everything was OK for us and to ask if we needed anything. Useful notes of recommended restaurants and activities, which we tried and enjoyed. The environment is very comfortable and welcoming and we would definitely recommend the property and very much hope to return ourselves.

The perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with this villa, set in a peaceful residential area away from the large hotels etc. of Funchal. The small villa was part of a larger house occupied by a Madeiran family and they and Mara, their friendly and charming housekeeper, could not have been more welcoming and helpful. It was a pleasant short walk to the old port of Funchal with a good selection of restaurants en route. We had our own secluded terrace with plenty of shade by the side of the accommodation and another private roof terrace with superb views of Funchal. We will be returning!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Patricia's place was perfect! We were met by Mara (the housekeeper) at the gates who showed us around. She was lovely and very helpful throughout the stay. We didn't meet Patricia but her dad Carlos who was

also very friendly. We travel a lot and have stayed in many nice places, but Patricia's was the best we've stayed in and we'd love to come back, for the following reasons:

-Perfect location - 5 mins to the first restaurants and bars, yet very quiet and peaceful

-Amazing views and stunning garden

-Very well equipped apartment - everything you might need is there (sunbed towels, kitchen accessories, spacious walk in wardrobe, super comfortable bed, great blackout curtains, BBQ complete with charcoal and fire lighters, washing machine; which was used twice as we got pretty muddy doing the levada walks! even washing tablets provided)

-For all coffee lovers: machine in the apartment seemed to be better than our Nespresso one. There were a few capsules provided but we bought some stronger ones from the supermarket and the coffee was amazing

-One of the loveliest touches was fresh fruit, a bottle of wine and some snacks; all of which were very welcomed after a late evening flight

-Great hospitality - we felt like we wanted to stay there for months and were sad to leave!

-No problem parking outside - one of the quieter streets and there was always plenty of room to park

-Spotlessly clean

-Apartment was very spacious (big shower too) and the terrace also very large

-In another review someone said: "They really mastered the balance of being just the right amount of helpful and we really appreciated their presence" - we couldn't agree more!

-Even the wifi was good!!

-Patricia also provided a guide with recommended restaurants; we tried a lot of them and we were really happy with her suggestions

-Top tip; don't follow the SatNav shortest route suggestion to use Tv. Do Lazereto to enter/exit Funchal; this is an incredibly steep (and narrow) road. Best to use R. da Ribeira de João Gomes. We would recommend an automatic or at least a decent powered manual (diesel preferable for the pulling power) for driving around due to the incredible hills; we had a small manual petrol car last time and the clutch was constantly smelling of burning! Soooo much easier this time with an auto.

We are not surprised she is classed as a 'superhost' - you can see that everything has been organised in a very thoughtful way and all that is left to do is relax!

Haus am Meer was will man mehr...

  • 5 of 5

Wenn man Ruhe, ein Brise Meeresrauschen und einen unvergleichbaren Ausblick über die Fenchelbucht sucht, den man auch vom Pool aus genießen kann, dann ist man hier richtig. Ein sehr freundlicher Vermieter, ein sehr aufmerksamer Haus-Service und die zentrale Lage, in nur 15 min zu Fuß ist man an der Markthalle, am besten Supermarkt der Stadt und an der Uferpromenade, ergaben für uns einen optimalen Aufenthalt. Kostenloser Parkplatz direkt vor der Tür. Das Frühstück auf der sonnigen Terasse, umgeben von Palmen, Bananenstauden und pinkleuchtenden Bougainville half uns in kürzester Zeit zu entschleunigen. Man kann sogar den Kreuzfahrschiffen früh oder abends beim Ein- und Auslaufen aus dem Hafenbecken zuschauen, ein schönes Schauspiel, das Lust macht, mal die Seiten zu wechseln.

Für die Erkundung der Insel, natürlich mit Mietwagen, ist die Lage auch top, denn man ist ruck zuck auf der West-Ost-Schnellstraße, auch der Abzweig in den Norden nach Sao Vincente ist nicht weit.

Das Appartement selbst ist geschmackvoll und zweckmäßig eingerichtet. Es findet sich alles, was man so braucht. Von der gut eingerichteten Kitchennette, Esstisch, Couch bis hin zum Flat-TV auch mit deutschen Programmen und kostenlosem WLAN ist alles an Bord. Die Betten sind gut, nicht zu weich. Überall an den Fenstern sind Mückenschutznetze angebracht, doch manchmal stechen die Biester einen doch. Summa summarum können wir das Appartement sehr empfehlen und für uns war es ein wunderbarer Erholungsort.

Little bit of heaven

  • 5 of 5

The scenery is something that can only be descrived as breathtaking. The imense blue ocean at our feet, an infinity pool facing the city landscape and the quietness of a semi-tropical climate. All this 10 mn away from the city center on foot. To return again and again. Thank you Patrícia and Mara for everything

Car: not necessary

Inserted in a century-old property, Isabel's Villa is less than 5 minutes' walk from the beach and less than 10 minutes from the city center. The property includes two other Villas, each with its own private leisure and relaxation area. Numa lives the host family with two small children who can assist guests in whatever they need.

With a wonderful terrace overlooking the sea, do not forget to relax overlooking the Port of Funchal in a charming atmosphere in a house full of details. A BBQ in the late afternoon with the sea as company or a breakfast while watching the dolphins and whales in the sea will make you want to return to this house year after year.

The property has an organic garden that guests can enjoy being a private part of Isabel's Villa.

The Market with the best fruits and vegetables and fresh fish is less than 10 minutes away on foot and you have a lot of choice including organic products.

For those looking for a dream vacation with a paradisiacal view but inside the city, this is the ideal house. Inside the city but with a feeling of having no one around.

Within walking distance you can also visit the historic center, go by cable car to the Monte or the Botanical Gardens and go to some of the best restaurants to sample fresh fish.
