About the property

Fantastic and peaceful location overlooking the town and ocean.

With wonderful panoramic views that make you feel you are standing over the town and ocean, Casa da Pinheira II has been refurbished in a contemporary style to become a lovely holiday villa with heated pool.

This newly refurbished 4-bedroomed sister villa do Casa da Pinheira I, allies peace and tranquillity of the residential area in which it is located with the wonderful views of the town and ocean due to its prominent position above Funchal. A high quality finish and light contemporary furnishings are complemented by a covered terrace, heated pool and garden that all benefit from those stunning views.

On arrival, the first thing you will notice is the fact that those superb views of Funchal and the ocean are always there – from the garden, whilst swimming in the pool, from the front terrace (what lovelier place to have your meals?) and from three of the four bedrooms. It makes it the perfect location from which to see the New Years Eve and June firework displays.

The front entrance via the terrace leads to a lovely spacious lounge from which a corridor provides access to the four bedrooms and kitchen/dining room.

The welcome holiday feeling is also created by the furnishings, which are light and of a very high standard.

The villa is very private, being positioned below the street has a large side and front yard (with good parking space) and is gated.

Access to the town centre is easy via the regular public transport that passes by the villa, or 5 minutes by car (a 20 minute downhill walk will also bring you to town).

This is a villa that offers everything: a great peaceful location with outstanding views, high quality furnishings, a heated pool and privacy.

Swimming pool heating:

Pool heating is optional and costs 120,00€ per week for a setting of 24ºC, paid in cash on arrival. A supplement of 30,00€ per week applies for each additional degree set up to a maximum of 26ºC

Pool heating should be requested at least one week in advance. Should it be requested after arrival at the villa, the minimum charge applicable is one week, which is payable from the time the heating is turned on.

This property is registered and has an Alojamento Local lodging license nº24595/AL

Top Haus mit einzigartigen Blick über Funchal

  • 5 of 5

Wir (2 Personen) haben 12 tolle Tage in diesem wunderschönen Haus verbracht und wären gerne länger geblieben. Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und bietet mit vier Schlafzimmern und zwei Bädern sicher auch 8 Personen Platz für eine entspannte Zeit. Alles war bei Ankunft top hergerichtet und der Poolyservice (2x wöchentlich) und das fleißige Reinigungsteam (1x während des Aufenthalts) haben dafür gesorgt, dass es so bleibt. Das absolute highlight ist aber der Postkartenausblick vom Balkon über den Pool auf die Stadt. Dieser ist am Tag genauso faszinierend wie in der Nacht! Wem die Straßen für einen ca. 30 minütigen Spaziergang in die Altstadt zu steil sind, der findet in unmittelbarer Nähe eine Bushaltestelle oder kann auf die günstigen Taxis zurückgreifen. Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit und empfehlen die Location unbedingt weiter! Vielen Dank für einen tollen Urlaub! Wir kommen gerne wieder, das nächste Mal mit der ganzen Familie!

Just perfect

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Casa de Pinheira ||. Everything was fine, the house is fully equiped and clean. The view over Funchal is stunning. Just two little negative aspects. A normal coffee machine is missing and they didn't clean the pool on tuesday, as it was mentioned.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

A truly outstanding property in every way. Secluded with stunning views and fabulous pool alongside open and shaded seating areas. Inside the property did not disappoint with classy and spacious accommodation that combined traditional furnishings with modern twists and decor. All rooms were light and spacious and furnished with high quality fixtures and furnishings. Both bathrooms and kitchen had everything you could possibly need. The house was extremely clean and well presented. The area itself was fine with a relatively straight forward downhill walk of about 20 minutes into the old town restaurants. A cheap taxi ride back at night.

All in all a fabulous house that was far beyond our expectations. Thanks!

The best view in Funchal

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I have rented a property for a holiday but I would certainly do it again.We were met on arrival and shown around it is a lovely house lots of space both inside and out ,well maintained and clean and had every facility you could wish for ,the decor and furnishings are superb and we felt at home straight away.None of us wanted to drive while on holiday so we bought weekly passes for the bus service which worked very well for us,the taxis are also reasonable costing 12euro for seven us to travel to Funchals center.

As my title for this review says the view from pool and patio area looking over Funchal must be one of the best on the island.Overall a great holiday and the property lived up to everything we expected and thanks to the owner for making the property available for others to enjoy.

Casa da Pinheira II Beautifully Refurbished Villa

  • 5 of 5

Es ist ein wunderschönes Haus mit traumhaften Ausblick. Alles sehr gepflegt und ordentlich. Schlüsselübergabe und Hauseinweisung klappte problemlos. Ein Ansprechpartner war immer vor Ort und so gab es keine Probleme. Sehr freundlich und kulant. Zum Beispiel ging die Kaffeemaschine kaputt, und wurde noch am selben Tag ausgetauscht, obwohl es ein Feiertag war, das war großartig, vielen Dank.

Wir haben uns hier sehr wohl gefühlt und haben jeden Augenblick mit unserer Familie genossen. (9 Personen) Und wir können dieses Haus und seine Gastgeber nur weiter empfehlen.

Immaculately clean but cold

  • 3 of 5

The villa was immaculately clean and spacious but the weather wasn't the best and we found the villa cold and with just one gas heater it wasn't that cosy, perhaps with better weather we wouldn't have noticed. The pool, although heated, wasn't warm enough to use. Could do with some new crockery as most was chipped. Superb views of Funchal from the villa and nice quiet location, perhaps the timetable for the buses that go past would be a help (31 and 31A) for those of us who like to use public transport. Local baker is well worth a visit !!

Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting your review. I am sorry that the weather was not the best and that the villa was not warm enough. More heaters could have been provided had you mentioned it whilst here. The swimming pool is always heated to 24º, but perhaps because of the air temperature it didn't feel as such. Thank you for your comments in regards to the crokery. This will indeed be replaced.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Funchal Airport at 18 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Bar at 300 Metres Nearest Ferry : Funchal Port at 3 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Palheiro Golf Club at 3 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Via Rapida at 1 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Restaurant and café at 350 Metres Nearest Beach : Barreirinha sea-level complex at 2 Kilometres Car: recommended

There are some local restaurants, bakery/café (one of the best on the island) and a small supermarket.

The cosmopolitan city of Funchal with its Fruit & Vegetable Market, Fish Market (the best morning to visit is Friday), Marina, Harbour, Theatre and many shops and restaurants is only a kilometre away. Public transport is plentiful and passes just outside the villa.

The Botanical Gardens are a must for garden lovers, especially as they are so close to the villa, approximately 500 metres. However it is an uphill walk all the way, but the local bus service is frequent and on your door step. Only a 5 minutes walk are the lovely Orchid Gardens and Quinta das Boa Vista, definitely worth a visit.

Sea access for swimming is easily available, either from the beaches, the many seafront hotels or from the ‘lidos’ which, for a small daily charge, offer swimming in sea water pools and protected sea areas.

Golf

Two championship courses, Palheiro (3kms) and Santo da Serra (15 kms) offer challenging golf amongst spectacular scenery. Alternatively you may like to take the ferry to the nearby island of Porto Santo and try the course there!
