Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a super holiday at Casa na Colina. Peter & Jane were very helpful, friendly & welcoming, we had to give them a call when the pool pump and washing machine stopped (reset the fuse)-Peter solved the problem instantly. Great hosts. In summary:-great location & views, perfect having a local shop, the villa was much larger than it appears in the photos. Paula

Fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic location for an extremely spacious villa. The sunsets are to die for. We received a warm welcome from Catarina who gave us a guided tour of the villa which was spotless despite the previous nights storm. I would recommend this villa to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday in comfortable surroundings.

Good sized house in great location

  • 4 of 5

This house was lovely and big, clean and very well appointed. The description was accurate, Jayne replied quickly and Catarina was very welcoming. A small shop 100 yards away provided basics, and several restaurants in nearby Calheta were fine for supper.

The sea view from the property was great although to really see the island a car is necessary, one able to cope with hills! Our kids really enjoyed the baptismal scuba diving in the aquarium at Porto Moniz, and riding down the hill in basket sledges at Funchal.

The weather for us was a little breezy so the pool was not used much, but it was beautifully clean. I would recommend this property, and we found it a good location from which to tour the island but enjoy the best of the weather - as Madeira has many microclimates.

Tranquil and peaceful Villa on a Beautiful Island

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property, very well equipped in a tranquil and peaceful location. Brilliant assistance and communication from the owner Jayne. A very,very warm welcome from Catarina on our arrival. Could not have wished for more. Ideal location for exploring Madeira. The pool was idyllic.

The property far exceeded our expectations and the photographs show only part of this beautiful property.

I would recommend this property to anyone without hesitation.

A visit to Porto Moniz and Reid's Palace Hotel for afternoon tea are highly recommended. New Era Restaurant at Calheta Marina also worth a visit. All restaurants we visited were of a high quality and served excellent food. Madeira is an absolute Jewel. Everyone we met were so friendly and helpful without exception. Hotel Albertroz Hotel and Yacht Club is also highly recommended if you wish to be near the airport on arrival or departure.

Jayne thank you very much and please pass on our thanks once again to Catarina

Very good Villa

  • 4 of 5

The villa was a very nice place with everything you could need for a family holiday. The pool was the highlight for the children and they spent a lot of time in it.

A car is recommended but it is possible to get by just using the taxis. A trip to the local supermarket was around 8 Euros in taxi and you also have a small shop and cafe/bar just a couple of minutes walk up the road.

The villa also has internet via WiFi, dvd player and the local cable TV which includes lots of channels including kids TV and movies in English.

I would also like to add that Peter who looks after the villa did an excellent job helping us out when we had problems with out missing luggage.

The description is very accurate and I would definitely recommend this villa to friends and family.

There is a welcome book at the villa which gives a lot of information about local shops, restaurants in the area and much much more.

Relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing time at Casa na Colina in March this year, our second visit as we first came last June. Although the weather was too cold to use the pool (it was exceptionally cold this spring) the house was lovely and warm thanks to the wood burning stove. Peter and Jane were very helpful, rescuing us when we got lost, and Ilidio, at the local Madeiran shop and cafe kept us well supplied with his wife's delicious cakes. Looking forward to going back.

Owner's Response: Hello Sophie, we were pleased to welcome you back in March. I am glad you made good use of the wood burning stove - hopefully next time you come out you won't be needing it!

Activity and Interests

Car: necessary


The white sandy beach at Calheta is only 5 minutes away by car, where there are plenty of cafes, restaurants, banks, the marina and a supermarket. The gently shelving white sands are ideal for the youngest of bathers while the deep game fishing based at the marina will satisfy the more adventurous.


The recent road, tunnel and bridge developments on Madeira make for an easy 30-minute journey to Funchal or 50 minutes to the airport.


The nearby towns and villages on the south coast- Ribeira Brava (15 minutes drive) or Jardim do Mar (5 minutes) - make an interesting change from either the dramatic north coastal attractions at Santana (1.5 hours) Porto Moniz (1 hour) or Sao Vincente (1 hour) or the mountainous interior of Pico Arreiro (1.5 hours) or Paul da Serra (30 minutes).

Further Details:

A small general store and cafe/bar are only a few minutes walk along a flat , level road. The owner here is very helpful and speaks good English.
