About Enisa Stricker

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

Why Enisa Stricker chose Funchal

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Beautiful views over the city of Funchal

  • 5 of 5
We have spent one week in the summer of 2014 in this lovely house. We are a family of 5, and we really enjoyed our stay at the property. The most important feature is the beautiful terrace, which has an amazing view over the city of Funchal. Here is where we spent most of our time. Since the house is located on one of the mountains of Funchal, it has a nearby hiking route into the forest, which also provides great views over the city. The house is very spacious and has two floors. The kitchen is fully equipped, and even has a dishwashing machine. The bedrooms, bathrooms and living room are all very well furnished. The owner is very kind and helpful, and we very much appreciate this. Overall, we had a wonderful time in this house. We recommend it to anyone that would like to have an active and outdoor holiday, as the location is perfect for such activities.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. You are absolutely right when you recommend it primarily to holiday makers who want active and outdoor holiday ( the best kind of holiday as far as I am concerned), though house has everything to make you comfortable to spend a lot of time in. But when you are in Madeira you want to be out, to enjoy what Nature has to offer, and in Madeira it offers a lot. To spend a few hours in town and nearer the sea it takes only 10 minutes drive down the hill and rest of the time is bliss to spend on one of my terraces ( there are 4 of them, every room leads out to the terrace, all facing south and south east for that magnificent views everybody loves, enjoying the peace and tranquility and lovely fresh air, because it is almost traffic free.
Hope to see you again some time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for finding the time to write this review. I am so happy to know you enjoyed your stay here. Hopefully, I’ll see you in Madeira again, some day. There are so many more Levada walks for you left unexplored… and Madeira is definitely one of the best walking destinations.

Urlaub in Funchal

  • 5 of 5
Die Ferienwohnung / das Ferienhaus ist außergewöhnlich. Die luxuriös ausgestattete, sehr große, gepflegte und saubere Wohnung läßt keine Wünsche offen.
Atemberaubend ist die Lage des Hauses und der herrliche Blick über den Hafen von Funchal.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, auch dank der äußerst freundlichen, zuvorkommenden und hilfsbereiten Vermieterin Enisa.
Die Wohnung können wir nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen. Besser kann man es nicht antreffen.

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
