Property fully met description and photos on the website were truly representative of the property and its views. The owner was very helpful and responded promptly to emails we sent requesting advice/imformation prior to our stay. The local caretaker was also very helpful and checked we were fine during some particularly bad weather which was very much appreciated .
very well kept property with superb views over the ocean and mountains in quiet surroundings with a lovely garden.
The house itself so well kept, nicely furnished, cosy and impeccably clean.
further a warm welcome and any assistance wanted awaits from the adorable english/madeiran caretakercouple.
I hope to come back soon.
Fantastic sea views and a great location we can only endorse the reviews to-date. You will also be welcomed by Roseann and Gilberto who are brilliant hosts - Highly recommended. Liz and Howard Scott Sept 10
We thoroughly enjoyed our week in the villa. The balcony overlooking the sea is fantastic with shade keeping a wonderful stable temperature all the time and sun for those who like being out in the heat. The villa itself was delightfully cool and airy whenever we returned to it and we had everything we needed and much enjoyed table tennis and pool as a family. We were initially a little disappointed that we couldnt walk down to the beach/Marina at Calheta as we hadnt realised the way led through two tunnels. However, it is very quick to get to in the car with excellent free parking available whenever we went down. The owners were extremely helpful (we have a daughter with a severe peanut allergy and they let us know before we went about appropriate medical services in case of an emergency), while Roseann who looks after the property with her Madeiran husband, Gilberto, is English, so you get the benefit of having access to both English and Portuguese. There were many good walks from the property and around, including a couple of easy levada walks from nearby Prazeres. Thoroughly recommended.
This is a very nice property with stunning views. The kitchen facilities are perhaps a little basic and it could do with a dishwasher. We stayed at the villa during quite cold weather and had to request extra duvets, which were provided by Rose the next day. We also raised a few other issues with the owner that I am confident that he will ensure are fixed. All in all it is a beautiful and well kept property with just a few small problems which I am sure can easily be sorted. The owner seemed very happy to deal with any concerns that we raised.
