|Minimum Stay||5 nights|
“Casa Bela Vista” is situated a short 20 kilometers from Funchal Airport in the quiet elevated area of Alegria, Sao Roque, blessed with magnificent views over the bay. Sao Roque, with its gorgeous vista of the marina and city of Funchal has a cathedral and miradouro (viewing point), bars, restaurants and a mini market.
The best thing about choosing” Casa Bela Vista” is not only its central location, but, it is situated on a regular bus route with a bus stop on your doorstep. The buses run a regular hourly service to and from Funchal Marina (6km) with many convenient stops. Car hire would only be essential if you wanted to explore the more rural area and North side of the Island.
New Year’s eve is the most special evening of the year in Funchal and from” Casa Bela Vista” you not only have a the best view in Madeira, you have the best viewpoint for the most special 180 degree fireworks display you will ever experience.
Being one of six townhouses in the Alegria area, the house has its own off road parking and private entrance.
Casa Bela Vista is completed to a high finish and is tastefully furnished. The house has two bedrooms and sleeps 4 people. It is spread over three floors and is south facing.
On the ground floor there is a well equipped modern kitchen, complete with utensils, crockery, espresso coffee pot, microwave, fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle and washing machine. There is a modern 5 station gas hob and an electric oven.
There is a bathroom down stairs which has a large shower with two shower heads, a modern wash basin, under counter storage, mirror and toilet.
The lounge and dining room has a beautiful fireplace, with large sliding doors leading out to a balcony with the most amazing views of the city of Funchal and the marina where you can see the luxury cruise boats arriving and departing daily.
In the lounge there is a large 42” television complete with Apple TV, local television stations and broadband WIFI.
From the balcony, there are steps down to outdoor area complete with wash line.
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms with luxury beds, bedside tables, fresh linen, built in cupboards. There are glass sliding doors leading out to the upper balcony with more magnificent views. The doors are completed with shutters which afford the occupants with complete privacy, fresh air and shade in the hot summer months.
The upstairs bathroom has a bath with hand held shower, bidet, toilet, wash hand basin and under basin storage. Both bathrooms have plug points for shavers and hairdryers.
500 meters, a short walk up the hill from Casa Bela Vista is a lovely mountain trail which traverses around towards the west… AMAZING views can be had in the tranquil shade of the forest whilst listening to tumbling streams along the way.
Your lovely managers have a wealth of knowledge about the island, its wonders and its attractions. Diving in Madeira is great and of course the levada walks, lido visits, town walks and rural villages and beaches are all a stone’s-throw from Funchal.
The house has a few travel books on Madeira, brochures and maps.
Suitable for older children or children over the age of 8.
Julian, Corrina and Cameron (our son aged 12) moved from Cape Town, South Africa in 2002 to the UK. They found the sun in Madeira shortly after that and have been holidaying in Madeira at least twice a year for the last 8 years.
We had stayed all over the island, north, south east and west but staying centrally in Maderia offered us the best options for our busy, action filled holidays. We love to walk, explore, swim, dive, fish and sail, so Funchal was the obvious choice for a lock up and leave home away from home.
The best thing about Casa Bela Vista is the regular hourly bus service. We find we hardly need a car now because the bus takes you right into the hub of Funchal. From there, the Lido, bars, restaurants, shopping, cable car and other buses are right there and are cheap to use. The bus to Monte and the botanical gardens is centrally situated and the cabs offer a great affordable service around Funchal and close environs.
The large supermarket is around 3 km from the house.

A 'Welcome Pack' is included when you book your stay at Casa Bela Vista.
We really enjoyed our stay in Casa Bela Vista. The view was magnificent and the house was well equipped and beautiful, with three terraces. Extra thanks for the welcome pack including food and drinks to start the holiday.
C'est la deuxième fois que nous venons à Madère et dans cette maison. L'accueil est toujours aussi sympathique, la communication excellente et la maison, toujours aussi charmante et bien équipée. Nous recommandons vraiment cette maison car en plus, elle très bien placée, la vue sur la baie est magnifique et elle est en dehors de la zone du tourisme "de masse". Merci encore aux propriétaires et à Marc et Marylin qui nous accueillent toujours si bien.
Casa bela Vista is a place I would recommend to my friends travellers : plenty of room, comfortable house, super view, friendly managers. We didn't rent a car and took great pleasure in our excursions and walks. Madeira is a wonderful island which makes you feel like coming back!
Nous sommes restés environ 12 jours dans cette maison qui dispose de tout le confort. Elle est tout d'abord très fonctionnelle : grande cuisine toute équipée, salon très confortable et salle à manger qui donnent sur la terrasse avec vue sur la mer. Une salle de bain et des toilettes sont également au rez- de-chaussée. A l'étage, 2 chambres avec une literie très confortable de grandes armoires et elles donnent toutes les deux sur une 2ème terrasse avec vue sur mer. Il t a également une salle de bains et des toilettes à l'étage. La maison est magnifiquement décorée et elle est très lumineuse. Elle se situe dans un quartier très calme et typique, sur les hauteurs de Funchal. La ville est très bien desservies par les bus, que ce soit pour aller au centre ou dans une autre ville. Néanmoins pour sillonner l'île en toute liberté, il est essentiel de louer une voiture. Nous avons été accueillis chaleureusement et il y a eu un très bon contact, que ce soit avant ou tout au long du séjour. En résumé, à louer sans aucune hésitation ! Merci encore à Corinna, Julian, Marc et Marylin pour ce séjour merveilleux, nous reviendrons !
The MOST wonderful and memorable holiday of our life.
We were met by a lovely couple at Casa Bela Vista, Marc and Marilyn, and greeted with a lovely 'welcome pack' to keep us going till we found our way down to the local shops, which are a short walk down the hill.
Casa Bela Vista is really well situated in Funchal. Being on a regular bus route was an absolute bonus. We did have a car, but next time we visit we will def NOT be hiring a car. The bus is cheap, regular, central and very well serviced. We used to get off at the Marina and catch the bus back at the same spot. Our daily early morning promenade walks and breakfast in town will be sorely missed!
From the old town we caught the cable car up to the Gardens, and of course Monte Palace where we spent many a day languishing in the lush gardens. We explored Monte and surrounds a lot!
We used the car to visit Macchico Beach, Ribeira Brava and Calheta Beach, but a lot of our time was spent at the many Lidos in Funchal. It felt wonderful knowing we could dine in town and hop on the bus back to the town house not worrying about parking charges etc.
The house is comfy clean and well equipped. The view from the bedrooms is amazing, the view from the balconies are terrific and many an evening was spent with a sun downer watching the sun set.
The kitchen is a dream and the shower... well... wished we could take it all back home with us.
For the technologically equipped, the Apple TV was lovely to have, and the collection of movies kept us entertained. Wifi connection is fast and reliable too!
We will certainly be back and next time we have an exciting snorkel dive planned with Marc and Marilyn.
Thank you Corrina and Julian for opening your holiday home to us.
Casa Bela Vista is everything it says it is in the advert and more. Spacious, comfortable and private. We hired a car, but found it really convenient to jump on the bus and head into Funchal for some lovely dinners without worrying about driving home after having a drink.
Contact with the owners from the first email was brilliant and they made the whole booking process through to arrival at the apartment and meeting the manager so easy and pleasant. We will definitely be back! Thanks again.
