About the property

3 Bedroom Rustic Villa Perched 30 Metres Above The Beach

SISTER VILLA TO VILLA DO MAR II (Ref 1544729) AND VILLA DO MAR III (Ref 1783409)

If you want to get away from it all, relax and simply enjoy the beauty of Madeira’s dramatic coastline, then Villa do Mar I is the perfect choice. Situated 30 metres above the almost deserted pebble beach, this idyllic, rustic 3 bedroom villa is the ultimate holiday retreat. The lounge/dining area is open plan and above there is a mezzanine with 2 single beds - ideal for children. The master bedroom, with en-suite bathroom, and one of the twin rooms, has direct access to the garden, and the third bedroom has a balcony with sea view.

The house has air conditioning and free Wi-Fi internet connection.

The outside space is fantastic and the views will take your breath away. The doors from the lounge open on to the wooden terrace which surrounds the front area of the villa. The garden is large with a variety of indigenous plants and palm trees and leads down to the sunny swimming pool area, with sun loungers and parasols. The perfect spot to relax with a glass of wine and watch the beautiful sun sets.

Adjacent to the pool area is a unique purpose built BBQ room with kitchenette and balcony overlooking the beach 30 metres below.

Villa Do Mar I has been the home to many a happy holidaymaker for the past couple of years. It was originally built and used as the owner’s summer retreat, and being a meat lover, the reason you will find a huge self contained dining room and kitchen at the bottom of the garden, at the side of the swimming pool, which is dedicated to those that love to barbecue, and your opportunity to create the local dish of ‘Espetada’ (succulent chunks of skewered beef grilled over wood embers).

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.

Just a perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

We love hidden places nestled amidst nature and this house is a dream. The garden is even prettier than on the photos and you can choose between a bunch of different corners to stretch out, eat or enjoy the surroundings. Don't miss the little barbecue house right on the beach!

We invited friends and had a wonderful time; we also tried the restaurant of the owner in Camara do Lobos and it was very good, nice view towards ocean and town.

What you need to know:

- the restaurant indicated as meeting point is right on the road facing the ocean, but its name is only written on shaky flags and if it's windy you don't see that. Take the number of the contact person with you, so you can call him if you have problems to find the meeting spot.

- the road to the house itself is very steep and narrow, but you get used to do it with a car, even at night.

- you have to be careful to not lock yourself out, as the front door can't be opened from outside with a handle. So once the keys are in the house, everybody is out and the wind shuts the door you have a problem (it didn't happen to us, but it's easy to happen).

- pets are allowed and we appreciated that very much; please respect house and garden if you travel with a dog, so they don't change this rule...

- you need to bring or buy tablets for the dishwasher, wastepaper bags and the basics for the kitchen (salt/pepper/sugar, oil/vinegar); there will be some bread, butter and jam upon arrival but the rest you need to buy and you can't reach a shop walking (a car is needed), so better buy groceries before you get there.

- be careful roasting things in the kitchen, the fire alarm goes off very easily. There is a frame on the wall next to the alarm system that tells you how to switch it off, but once you are stressed you might not see that... the alarm is VERY noisy.

A wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

Everything at the villa was perfect: the house, the pool, the view, the service.... Our stay in Madeira was a great experience with the beautiful nature and the climate. But the weather... unfortunately we had much of rain and storm. That was bad luck. We are happy to be back next year...

Stunning

Marvelous property and very nice, charming house at the sunniest spot on the island! Owner was very helpful and responsive when a problem occurred. The house and garden are even more beautiful than you would expect from the pictures.
