Funchal House Rental Photos and Description

Tranquil Retreat:near the forest, easy, quick access to the centre of Funchal.

Casa Alegra is a substantial, fantastically-appointed modern 3 bedroom detached residence with incredible views over the bay of Funchal. It is the perfect base for exploring the whole island, and Madeira's renowned, world-class golf courses are within easy reach: (Palheiro 20 minutes and Santo da Serra 30 min).

Perfect for singles, couples or large groups of friends and families.

The internal living accommodation available to you is 200 square meters over two floors (gym on the ground floor and barbecue area are in addition to this). The spacious sitting room, with real log fireplace is open plan to the dining room and opens onto the surrounding terraces. There is a large flat screen television with cable access (many language channels) and a well-stocked DVD and book library for guests to enjoy.

The 3 bedrooms are upstairs with large double beds sleeping up to 6 people comfortably. All bedrooms have plenty of wardrobe space and terraces. The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom. There is 1 more bathrooms and 2 further cloakroom / WCs. Every bedroom leads on to the terrace.

I retired to this lovely island seven years ago. Before that I lived in central London for over 30 years. That's why I now prefer to live further from the center of town and heavy traffic.

Enisa Stricker purchased this house in 2007

I bought this house because I wanted to live close to unspoilt nature and yet have an easy and quick access to the centre of Funchal.

I am very near a beautiful forest ideally suited for daily walking and enjoying this exquisite, peaceful region of unique natural beauty and diverse scenery.

The house is built at such an angle that even during the hottest weather the inside of the house is just pleasantly warm, never oppressively hot.

It is suited in a lovely, quiet suburb, residential area on one of a small central hills, 10 minutes by car to the centre of town.

You can enjoy daily walk and run in the forest and go for a swim in the sea on the same afternoon.

This is an ideal place to get away from it all, stay and exercise in a fresh air, far from noise and traffic, connect with nature and enjoy the most spectacular views over surrounding hills, the Funchal harbour and the sea beyond.

We enjoyed a relaxing stay at Casa Alegra. The house is even more comfortable and spacious than the description and photos suggest. Enisa was charming and whilst she didn't intrude at all, was always ready to help and give advice. The kitchen has all you could need but we often ate out because there were so many nice, inexpensive restaurants. Casa Alegra is tastefully furnished and very clean. Taking a leisurely breakfast outside with wonderful views of Funchal is a very pleasant way to start the day. You will not be disappointed.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • 5 of 5
Enisa,s house was ideal for the month that we stayed there.The house was spacious, clean and warm.The kitchen is well equipped.The living room was very comfortable and Enisa provided us with as much wood as we needed for the cooler evenings.All the bedrooms and bathrooms were well provided for with fresh linen and bath towels,the water was always hot.
The view from the balcony was stunning and we enjoyed watching the cruise boats coming and going.
There is a lovely walk through the woods just up the hill from the house and it is a short drive down into Funchal or onto the motorway to start exploring the Island.
I would highly recommend a stay here to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you Claire. I am so happy you enjoyed your stay here. My place is perfect for people who want peace and quiet, fresh air, easy walks in the forest and when you want hustle and bustle of town or swimming, it is easily accessible be it by bus or renting the car which I always highly recommend. It is the best and easiest way to see all the most beautiful and interesting parts of island.

REVIEW OF PROPERTY IN AUGUST 2013

  • 5 of 5
The property was very spacious, clean and well maintained it particularly suited our extended family requirements of family with children and grandparents. Spectacular views both day and night from all terraces. The facilities available were excellent: well equipped kitchen, laundry facilities, WiFi, multi language TV channels - many genres. Bedding, towels, furnishings and crockery were of the highest standard. We also made good use of the barbecue area. We did have own transport and also used the reliable local bus service to and from the house. A warm welcome was extended by the owner along with overview of the property and facilities. The owner lives on site in a separate self contained accommodation, this in no way impacted on our privacy and enjoyment of the property, friendly advice and information/tips were readily forthcoming on request. We recommend a visit to the local bakery, a short car journey away, stocked with fresh bread, pastries and some savoury takeaway items. The house is well appointed in a residential area allowing easy access to the main roads resulting in straightforward journeys around the island. We recommend this property and would hope to return again.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay in Casa Alegra and hope you will stay here again next time when you visit Madeira.
This lovely island is one of the few places in the world where a lot of visitors keep coming back again and again. There is really so much to see, enjoy and have a real rest from everyday hectic life. After visiting Madeira you definitely don't need "rest from a holiday."
Kind regards and many thanks

COMFORT, TRANQUILITY & MAGNIFICENT VIEWS!

Comfort, tranquility & magnificent views!
  • 5 of 5
What a lovely home! It suited us so well! We had no car, but the bus stop was around the corner. Madeira's bus system is a great and inexpensive way to get around and see the beautiful parks, town, coast and shopping centers and take you to the amazing Levada Walks. The view from the terrace is spectacular! We made good use of the fireplace the first week when the weather was a bit cold! We can truly recommend this beautiful place. It's not easy to make a choice when you see how much is available. We picked an excellent one! If you don't enjoy walking, we'd recommend a car. Thanks Enisa!

SCHÖNE AUSSICHT AUF FUNCHAL UND DEN HAFEN

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren mit der gewählten Unterkunft sehr zufrieden. Es ist eine sehr große Wohnung, die sich über 2 Etagen erstreckt und Platz für insgesamt 6 Personen bietet (3 Schlafzimmer). Die sehr nette Vermieterin Enisa wohnt im selben Haus in der unteren Wohnung. Wir hatten sehr nette Gespräche über das Reisen mit Ihr und Sie ist sehr zuvorkommend. Falls es einmal kühler werden sollte, macht Sie auch gerne den Kamin für einen an. Die Wohnung ist insgesamt sehr umfangreich und hochwertig ausgestattet. Eine so gut ausgestattete Küche hatten wir bis jetzt noch in keiner anderen Unterkunft. Im Wohnzimmer gibt es einen großen Flachbildfernseher mit Kabelanschluss (auch deutsche Programme), außerdem DVD-Player und ein Heimkinosystem. WLAN kann auch umsonst genutzt werden. Die Aussicht von der Terrasse ist atemberaubend, Funchal und der Hafen liegen einem zu Füßen. In die Stadt ist es nicht weit mit dem Auto und auch der nächste große Supermarkt ist mit dem Auto in ein paar Minuten erreicht, ausserdem gibt es eine Bushaltestelle, direkt am Haus. Bei uns haben auch die Hunde gebellt, aber das hat nicht wirklich gestört. Wir fühlten uns wie zuhause!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. It is so important for me that you enjoyed your stay at my house and felt at home. As for the dogs barking it is like that all over Madeira... well, almost, all over.... many travelers are mentioning them, even people staying in the hotels. It seems cure for that is strenuous Levada walks, and you will sleep through anything. You two did just that. That’s why you did not mind. I for one do not even hear them any more, like you city people when you get used to traffic noise. At least dogs do not bark permanently, they get tired of it, but traffic noise you have all the time. Otherwise it is so peaceful and quiet here... almost too quiet.
I hope to see both of you again some day.... when walking in Madeira is again on your list. Regards

URLAUB IN FUNCHAL MIT 4 ERWACHSENEN UND 1 KIND

  • 5 of 5
Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Unterkunft oberhalb von Funchal mit wunderschönen Blick auf den Hafen.
Das Ferienhaus ist gut eingerichtet und in einem sehr sauberen Zustand. Ausreichend Wäsche steht ebenfalls zur Verfügung.
Im großen Wohnzimmer befindet sich eine Eßecke mit Kamin, der regelmäßig von der Vermieterin angezündet wurde.
Die Rundfunk- und Fernsehanlage ist neu (mit deutschen TV-Programmen). Der Internet-Empfang funktioniert schnell und zuverlässig.
Die Küche ist optimal ausgestattet mit ausreichend Geschirr.
Von der Terrasse aus hat man einen faszinierenden Ausblick auf die Stadt, den Hafen und die ankommenden Kreuzfahrtschiffe.
Leider sind die Bäder nicht beheizbar und somit war es zu unserer Reisezeit etwas kühl im Bad.
Wir können das Ferienhaus jederzeit weiterempfehlen und bedanken uns nochmals herzlich bei unserer hilfsbereiten und freundlichen Vermieterin Enisa.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ramona for you nice review. I am happy you enjoyed your stay here. As for bathrooms not being heated I do my best to keep it warm during the winter, by supplying plenty of wood for the fireplace, taking hard work out of it and supplying electric heaters for the bathrooms. It is important to keep bedrooms and bathrooms doors open when fire is on. Nobody else complained about cold bathrooms and actually other guests didn’t use heaters at all.
During the winter months, mornings and evenings are chilly here and many properties don’t have a fireplace. That’s how it is on the islands and many Mediterranean countries... lovely and warm during the day and colder in the evenings. On the Continent you are used to central heating at all times, so putting a bit of an effort to warm up the place is alien to many people.... but Madeira is so beautiful it is worth it... I think.
