Stunning location & views BUT hospitality needs to be better
Firstly, what a stunning and secure villa with beautiful views of the ocean, with easily accessible beach very close by. We felt safe and the area is lovely and quiet.
Having said that, we feel that the hospitality in terms of help should be better considering this is a villa and not AirBnB after-all. Firstly, it would be good to have a starter bag of basics like tea bags, oil, sugar, eggs, bread, washing up liquid etc. as we were not familiar with the area, particularly if you arrive at night as the closest shops are about 20 mins walk away. Secondly, we lost two days of our short break due to the pool being very cold, despite being told it was a heated pool, this is even after a guy came to check the pool on the second day and told us that it would be warm however it remained cold for the remainder of the stay (which was very frustrating as the heated pool was one of the main reasons we booked this place). In addition, nobody came to clean the pool regularly (the pool cleaner turned up just the once on the second day only after we requested that the pool be checked) which was unacceptable as there was a large tree by the pool so many leaves and ants/other bugs were in the pool all week.
Lastly, just a suggestion if you want to make a pool more child-friendly perhaps consider adding some softer material or something to the pool edges to avoid accidents such as injuring heads as the pool is relatively narrow compared to other pool sizes.
It would be good for these points to be taken on board to improve the villa experience and increase the likelihood of people returning to stay.
Dear Mr. Wiam Saad,
Happy New Year.
About your comments we would like to clarified that you always left for our guest: Oil, Vinager, Suggar, Salt, Pepper, washing liquid & coffee caps. We already check with our housekeeper & we had it on your stay.
We have Heated Swiming-pool on request. As you do it you improve it immediately but just on second day will be perfect on Winter.
We leave the swiming-pool cleaned, we did it ourselfs.
We also buy you a second bike as you ask us.
It was a special request from you and we except that you recognized it in your comment.
Thank You for staying with us.
Stunning house. Beautiful location
This is very luxurious house. Simply stunning. Bit disappointed the owner does not do a welcome pack of essentials as standard. I queried this when we arrived by email and he said we should have asked. All places we have stayed at in past this is a standard thing. We arrived late and didn't know area so finding shops etc was difficult. Nonetheless the location and house design is amazing. The pool is beautiful and looks out onto the ocean and the statue of Christ. Great location. Not far to the botanical gardens and only 15 minutes drive into Funchal centre. We hired a car to get about. Highly recommend house of jazz restaurant and the magic dolphin trip. We will be back. Thank you joäo.
Fantastic property, beautiful place.
Beautiful villa with sea views
This is a beautiful villa with sea views within walking distance of shops and a few restaurants. Taxi into Funchal easy and we made links with our taxi driver Sonja who was always available to drive us or pick us up. Villa large and clean a few more sun loungers for our party would have been good. Also no basic ingredients to start us off and we arrived in the evening. Restaurant Central a few miles away good food and lively atmosphere (and they collected us and drove us back to villa). Levada walks lovely.
Lovely clean luxury villa superb views and in a beautiful island. Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
Dear Liz Gajjar
Thank you very much for your comments!
About your suggestion we already improve it!
We hope to welcome you again in our home!
Sea House Madeira is the most luxurious holiday home that we have ever stayed in. It made our trip to Madeira really special.
The views were stunning both day and night, the pool was a welcome relief after a hot day and the facilities were just like a 5 star hotel. The house was spotless and the kitchen was well stocked with all you could need - not that we ate in much as the local restaurants catered for our needs well.
Set just outside Funchal it gave us the incentive to explore the Island with all its beauty and history. Taxi rides to Funchal and beyond were quick and easy and we soon struck up a relationship with a local driver who took us all over the island. On route he was always happy to update us on the local history and give us advice - even where to go on the last day to catch the best sunshine.
The main reason for the trip was to swim with the dolphins and to snorkel which was incredible and coming back to the house at night gave us the opportunity to unwind in luxury. It really was a holiday of a lifetime we will never forget.
I would defiantly recommend to anyone and am looking to return next year.
