Our first visit to Madeira and an excellent destination choice and an equally excellent property. From our first enquiry to our departure Karen was easily accessible and responsive via email. The property itself was stunning, spacious and immaculate. The roof terrace is the crowning glory. It is a place to enjoy the sunshine all day, soak in the views of the sea, harbour, town and hillside. We loved the character of The Old Town. The nearest restaurant (Tasco) is at the end of the street and is highly recommended. 10 mins walk and the choice of eateries is endless, another 5 mins further is the Market & Supermarket. We hired a small car for a few days, the private parking was a bonus and we explored the Island at our leisure. Was so good we didn't want to leave. Hopefully we will return.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

First time in Madeira and we loved it. The experience was made all the better based upon the choice we made to stay at this wonderful property. It was extremely comfortable and had absolutely everything that we required. The views from the roof terrace were fab. We spent a lot of time here enjoying the sun and staring out over the ocean. Very relaxing and intend to return.

All we had hoped for

  • 5 of 5

Other reviews say it all. A perfect 2 weeks with added January sunshine every day and often breakfast as well as lunch on the roof. Newly refurbished Lido is 2 mins away, lifeguarded and 2 euros to swim in the Atlantic. One of us did. Taco bar/restaurant round corner delightful and welcoming. Easy big shop at supermarket and short taxi back. Buses, market and great choice of restaurants nearby. We have been looking for this house for many years. Have already re-booked.

Home from home in Funchal

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month at this delightful house in the old town of Funchal. It really did feel like a 'home from home'. Lovely big kitchen/diner which is very well equipped, comfortable lounge and bedroom. Wifi was really useful for keeping in touch with family and for researching the island. The roof terrace is our favourite part of the property. Having breakfast outside whilst watching the cruise ships arriving and sipping our Gin and Tonics in the early evening after a long day sightseeing and Levada walking. Perfect. So perfect in fact that we are returning for a month next year. Karen is always available via email to answer any queries that should arise.

A superb house with superb views from roof terrace. From collection at airport to departure we had a great holiday. Short downhill walk to bars and cafes, about 15mins walk to large supermarket and Funchal centre. The house is comfortably furnished, exceptionally clean and was ideal for our group of 4 adults.

Thanks Karen for our lovely holiday, hope to book again if your property is available.
