“Best Villa we have ever stayed in”
Reviewed 21 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My husband and I have just been for a week for our 29th wedding anniversary. We thought the property we stayed in last year in South Africa was outstanding and nothing would ever beat it ...WRONG!! This villa is just beyond gorgeous. From the moment we emailed regarding this place the correspondence was so prompt. Solanda who greeted us was just awesome. This villa has everything, and the most personal touch was just superb, from shampoos, toilet rolls, tea/coffee etc, a load of thought has been put to make each guest feel welcome. The view from each window is gorgeous, and stand in the pool overlooking the infinity edge you can watch the birds chirping away in the aviary. The bed was so comfortable and lying in bed seeing the fishermen out in boats was so relaxing. I can go on and on about this absolute diamond of a property. Without a shadow of a doubt we would recommend highly !!!! Thank you for allowing us the property to enjoy Madeira, what a gorgeous country.

I'm so sorry; due to us being on holiday at the time of your visit, I totally forgot to reply to you lovely review.
We were so pleased to read you'd enjoyed your time here especially as it was for your 29th anniversary! We couldn't run the Villa without our 'Awesome' manager Solanda, she is a gem.
Thank you

“An amazing house in a stunning setting”
Reviewed 7 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed here for a week with extended family and my one year old daughter. The house is so well equipped for all the family and furnished to a very high standard. I would recommend the house to anyone for a relaxing lazy week in the sun.

“Amazing place..amazing views!”
Reviewed 13 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Beautiful villa, well equipped and presented throughout. We stayed here with our 2 girls, 11 and 12, plus parents-in-law. The villa had everything we needed and was kept clean and well maintained by Solanda and Nelson.
We were made to feel extremely welcome and were even given avocados, lemons and passion fruit from the garden.
The villa has amazing views from all bedrooms and all beds were very comfortable- great to wake up looking out at the sea, felt like I was on a cruise ship!
Thank you for a great stay, despite the weather!

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 6 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This villa exceeded our expectations in every way, from the advice given in the lead up to arriving, its stunning location and views, to masses of space, fantastic decor to the highest standards and thought that has gone in to making the guests feel welcome. Solanda and Nelson were extremely helpful throughout our stay, my husband loves to barbecue and was impressed with the barbecue area that was well stocked with wood and the barbecuing Madeira style tips he received from Nelson! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would be back in a heartbeat and will have no reservations recommending the villa to all our friends and family! Many thanks for having us!

“Beautiful accommodation of exceptional quality.”
Reviewed 25 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is a very special villa. You will find yourself, as our party did, staying in comfortable and beautifully designed surroundings. A great deal of thought has been put into the villa, creating an exceptional holiday experience.
The accommodation interior is contemporary and stylish. There is plenty of space for dining or relaxing on sofas in the light and airy downstairs area. The equipment and facilities in the kitchen, utility room and en-suite bathrooms are of excellent quality. The bedrooms all have stunning, uninterrupted sea-views and harmonious colour schemes: most conducive to a restful night’s sleep! Outside, the colourful gardens are beautifully landscaped and border onto a large terrace area. We found the barbeque easy to use and well-stocked with necessary supplies. All of us think the adjacent, well-sized, heated infinity pool, which overlooks the sea, is a joy!
The whole establishment was immaculately presented and maintained this way throughout our stay. Some of the personal touches we appreciated were: the welcome basket of Madeiran produce on arrival, the numerous books and magazines available, the music system, the availability of reference information to make our stay at the villa easy, the provision of brochures for places of interest and activities on the island, a pair of binoculars and visits from Zulu, the labrador.
When advice or information were needed (this being our first visit to the villa and to Madeira) Amanda and the support team were exceptionally helpful. Meeting them added much to our happy holiday and we extend a great, big “thank you” to all.
Do not hesitate to book - you will be so glad you chose to stay here!
