Superb Villa in a Stunning, Private, Peaceful Location

Overview

Property

Updated: 02-Dec-2016
A Delightful 3 Bedroom Modern Villa W/ Pool Perched 30m Above The Pebble Beach

SISTER VILLA TO VILLA DO MAR I (Ref 1544748) AND VILLA DO MAR III (Ref 1783409)

Located on a fajã (a piece of land at the foot of a cliff) in the sunny Calheta area, and perched overlooking the ocean, Vila do Mar II has been beautifully converted from a farmers barn into a colourful, charming villa where tranquillity and privacy reign.

The owner has decorated the Villa in lovely colours that reflect the old fishing cottages of Madeira.

The living area is full of light and has full length sliding windowpanes that provide full and direct sea-views and leads to the swimming pool terrace. In addition to the sitting and dining areas, you will find a delightfully decorated open plan kitchen and separate barbecue.

The Master Bedroom with en-suite bathroom is on the first floor; the second bedroom is below it and has next to it the family bathroom. The third bedroom and en-suite bathroom is in the loft of what was the barn, and is reached via a separate set of steps.

The living area and all the bedrooms have air-conditioning.

The swimming pool may be heated on request.

There is free Wi-Fi connection throughout the Villa.

The Villa is secluded and very private and off the beaten track.

The whole house and grounds is perched on the edge of land, only 30 metres above the pebble beach, and affords astounding views - you feel as one with the ocean.

A lovely little beach hut is located right on the rocky beach 30 metres below, and shared by, the three Villas do Mar.

A front terrace with sunbeds, outdoor shower and built-in barbecue and large table (seating for 16), is complemented with a kitchen (fridger, 4-ring hob) and toilet.

Access is via a pathway with steps that leads from the level of the Villas do Mar down to the beach.

Villa do Mar II is a sister villa to the popular Villa do Mar I, which is situated next door which has been the home for many a happy holidaymaker for the past couple of years.

A hire car is recommended, and secure parking inside the villa grounds is available for one car.

What a lovely surprise!

  • 4 of 5

What a fantastic stunning villa! Madeira was a lovely surprise too. We never expected it to be so diverse and pretty. Loved exploring the island - down by the sea and way, way up in the mountains above the clouds. We loved the terraced terrain, so interesting and stunning flowers all around.

The villa has the most amazing views of the sea (it's almost ON the sea) and to hear the crashing waves constantly is a unique bonus. The sunsets were the best we've ever seen. The villa itself is so pretty and has everything you'd need for a relaxing holiday - apart from the road down which is terrifying and daunting (and we are not easily scared - one star has been taken off for it!).

I'd have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Our Madeira who were always helpful and quick with their responses. Mr Rodriquez was always on the end of the phone even when we had queries non-villa related (our telescope tripod broke so he advised us where to go to get a replacement).

Our complimentary dinner at Vila do Peixe in Camara de Lobos was really delicious - and very kind of the owner.

We were very lucky to have had fantastic weather for our two week holiday and found Madeira interesting in every way and recommend that everyone should visit at least once in a lifetime!

Perfekter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa überzeugt sowohl von der Architektur, Lage als auch Einrichtung und entspricht den gezeigten Bildern. Wir haben die 14 Tage sehr genossen. Der Blick direkt auf den Atlantik ist unbeschreiblich. Einzig die letzten 200m Anfahrt sind etwas abenteuerlich, da eine steile Stichstraße zum Haus führt. Aber daran gewöhnt man sich recht schnell. Supermärkte finden Sie 5 bzw. 15 Minuten vom Haus entfernt. Gleichwohl es sehr viele gute Restaurants auf Madeira gibt. Wir haben die Villa genutzt um ganz Madeira zu erkunden und würden jederzeit die Villa wieder mieten.

Das Haus ist wundervoll direkt am Meer gelegen.

Der Blick ist fantastisch. Wir waren zu Zweit in der Villa, es war perfekt, die Ausstattung ist sehr gut. Wir kommen wieder!

Clean, well designed villa with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 12 days at the self-catering Villa do Mar II and we loved it so much we did not want to leave! This is a totally private villa nestled on the side of a cliff overlooking a private beach with spectacular views of the unlimited expanse of the Atlantic Ocean. The sea is almost within a stone's throw of the property. Looking out of the windows in several of the rooms makes it feel like you're on a cruise ship because all you can see is the ocean!

The swimming pool was perfect for pre-teen children - one end deep enough for an adult to stand in, the other end very shallow, and large enough to play and swim in. The weather in Madeira in high season is so pleasantly warm and humid that the pool was essential to cool off!

The facilities of this recently new property were very well designed and immaculately clean. The modern well equipped kitchen was a joy to use (but keep it clean to avoid ants), and it was also great fun to cook in the BBQ (effectively an outdoor wood oven). It really helped having free wifi in the villa also. Did I mention that you can see the sea from inside? - I have never seen such an amazing view from a kitchen anywhere else!

We loved the way the villa has been thoughtfully, carefully and colourfully decorated - even the colourful chimney above the outdoor brick fire! It really is a bright and happy place.

It was great to have access to the private beach (shared with the other local properties) literally directly below the villa, accessed via a nearly vertical wooden staircase down to a series of stone steps. This included use of the reasonably equipped beach house. This grey pebble beach was great but the waves can be very strong so take care when paddling as the waves can easily carry pebbles in them. (There is a man-made sandy beach in nearby Calheta).

The villa is close to the resort of Calheta - great for dolphin watching trips, restaurants, shopping and the Pingo Doce supermarket.

This was our first visit to the stunning island of Madeira, and we definitely want to return and stay in this property again. The section of track down to the villa from the road is certainly narrow and very steep, but we quickly got used to it - tip: keep your car in 1st gear all the way down as well as up it; a small car with less powerful engine could stall in 1st gear up this hill unless you keep the revs high enough.

Owner's Response: Wow! What absolutely amazing comments. Reviews are always so important for our future guests. As this villa is new for summer 2015 reviews are even more important. We couldn't have asked for a nicer one. We are delighted that you loved the villa, the location and that you fell in love with the island. Come back soon - we will be waiting for you. Thank you.

Fabulous villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The villa excelled expectations in every way. The view was stunning and the villa itself was perfect. The location is very peaceful indeed and ensures a totally relaxing stay. A very slight downside was the approach road which, if you are a nervous driver may be a little daunting but I'm sure if you have a hire car and are willing to drive abroad, it wouldn't pose a problem. The villa isn't cheap but I guess you get what you pay for. The property manager was really helpful and at the end of the phone if need be. All in all a perfect place to escape but not too far from reality to explore the rest of the beautiful island.

Unschlagbare Lage und Aussicht.

  • 5 of 5

Villa do mar II ist unserer Meinung nach das schönste Ferienhaus auf Madeira.

Die Lage ist grandios direkt am Meer mit privatem Strandhaus und Privatstrand die über eine Treppe zu erreichen sind. Die Einrichtung ist sehr liebevoll ausgewählt.

Der Poolbereich ist eine Oase der Entspannung. Der Eigentümer und sein Team sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Für uns gibt es nur eine Adresse auf Madeira und das ist Villa do mar II.
