Guestbook comments from the manager

Group of 5 University students based in Lisbon wrote in the Sunny House Guestbook:



"Paul do Mar is really beautiful. It was always sunny! Bananas were awesome. You can explore nature and see the nicest sunsets.



Sunny House is amazing. It was nice and clean. It is big and comfortable. We liked terrace the most! Amazing just to sit there and watch the sea, waves and sun.



We recommend Sunny House to everyone who is traveling to Madeira to spend a nice holiday there."

Great vacation in Sunny House East

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation in Sunny house East was great. Nice situation between the mountains and the sea. Paul welcomed us warmly and give us good advices to spend a good week in Madeira. The house has a confortable terrace when we had wine tasting at evenings (not the good week for sunsets but however we had beautiful lights).

Reaching the other parts of the island was easily with a rented car. The Pingo Dolce at Calheta was great for cooking by ourselves at home.

Thank you Paul and hope to see you again (I left some beers in the fridge, in case you're in lack of water again at your home :-) )

Best place ever....

  • 5 of 5

Hidden in the banana fields, Sunny House East offers a wonderful Madeiran experience. It is situated a little back from the sea, along a passageway, with a security door onto its own courtyard and three stories - ground floor with very large well-equipped kitchen/dining room, huge shower room and double bedroom - a middle floor with two more bedrooms (one with own balcony) and shower room and top floor with living/utility room (+ washing machine) and a well-positioned balcony, from which you can see the sea as well as the mountains behind. The 'East house' balcony (unlike West house), has a roof over which is handy when weather is either baking hot or drizzly, and also allows some shade from its position. It has a built-in barbecue which works well and a large table for meals outside, plus washing line.

The house is meticulously clean, very spacious and comfortable. The huge fridge was very welcome and small freezer. The cooking hob was a fascinating electronic version, plus a microwave and loads of crockery, cutlery & pans. Oddly there is no oven. There was a generous size dining table in the modern, well-designed kitchen. Plenty of hot water, plenty of electric sockets, spare blankets, loads of towels, toilet rolls, and a stash of household items like salt, washing up liquid, oil etc. to get things started.

Paul, the landlord, is exceptionally helpful - a mine of information and accessible nearby for other enquiries. This was especially useful for us, as we knew little about Madeira or how to get the best out of our holiday. He was particularly kind, warning us about things like sea spray and small stones on windy days potentially damaging our hire car, advising us to park a little way away, like the locals.

There is a delightful sea-front restaurant, called Sol-e-Mar, within easy walking distance, which does wonderful local seafood at good prices, and where the staff speak enough English and are very friendly and welcoming. The far end of the main street houses a couple of bars and a hotel (Hotel Paul do Mar) whose 3 pools + jacuzzi can be used by external people at a modest cost (including drink) which is great as the sea is too rough, generally, and the beach's big stones hard to walk over. Above all, it all felt very safe, even at night. I can only think of one negative - no shop in Paul do Mar. You have to drive to Calheta or Prazeres a few miles away.

verblijf november 2014

  • 5 of 5

We verbleven 3 weken in "Sunny house east". Wee werde zeer vriendelijk ontvangen door Iva. Ze gaf ons zeer veel info over de mogelijkheden in de buurt.

Alles wat op de site staat is aanwezig en was zeer proper.

We beklagen ons zeker niet dat we voor dit huisje gekozen hebben.

Prijs kwaliteit heel goed.

groetjes Linda en Dirk

A nice place to spend peaceful holiday

  • 5 of 5

[+++]

Great time in the Sunny House.

The water very close, the sound of the waves at night, the possibility of going quickly to Porto Moniz, Sao Vicente, Jardim do Mar, Calheta, Ponta do Sol, Ribeira Brava, Rabaçal, ...

The restaurant Sol & Mar and the pub Maktub (good caïpirinha !).

Easy to go walking and to go bathing.

Paul do Mar isn't as pretty as Jardim do Mar but it has a hidden pleasantness.

The house was perfect for both of us.

Cool inside when the sun was hot outside, 2 terraces.

Everything was ok : space, furniture, electrical equipment, the bathrooms, the TV, the decoration : simple, white walls, pretty linen, etc...

Hosts very friendly :-)

[-]

No supermarket in the town. Just a little shop.

Popular amongst walkers, fishermen and swimmers with several safe swimming areas and closeness to famous mountain and levada walks PR 6 and the 'Rabacal/25 fountains' PR 19 walk. Attractions include white sand beaches next to Calheta Marina 10 minutes drive, a rum factory Engenhos with a museum, Prazeres village with 17th century church, fruit and vegetable market and ‘Quinta Pedagogica’ - a free animal park, art gallery and cider house! Plus, there is the award-winning international art centre: ‘Casa das Mudas’ & UNESCO-protected Ancient Laurisilva Forest. Whale/dolphin-watching and big-game fishing boats operate from Calheta marina.
