'SUNNY HOUSE EAST'

Calheta House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 5/6 3 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms 2 Terraces Ocean Mountain Views

Appreciation submitted 21 July, 2014

Review #8833007 'Très bien'

'Maison ancienne remise au goût du jour. Beaucoup de personnalité. Près d'une bananeraie. Près de la plage (gros galets). Très calme. Totalement équipée. Endroit très reposant avec un côté balnéaire bien sympathique mais sans la folie de la ville ni les touristes. A proximité (vers la jetée), bons bars à mojito et caïpirinha (et ambiance jeune mais pouvant convenir à des 'vieux' comme nous). Bon restaurants à Paul do Mar (Sol e Mar) et Jardim do Mar (Tarmar).'

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."

Séjour à Paul do Mar

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour à Paul do Mar.
si vous cherchez le soleil, la tranquillité, la nature preferez Paul do Mar à Funchal qui est plus touristique.
La maison était impeccable, grande propre et lumineuse.

Wir haben die Zeit im Sunny House sehr genossen! Das Haus ist schön gelegen, sehr sauber, sehr ruhig, mit Meersicht und sehr gut ausgestattet, sogar mit WLAN. Die Vermieter sind super nett und sehr zuvorkommend. Ein Mietwagen ist allerdings sehr zu empfehlen. Das Nächste Mal Madeira sicher wieder das Sunny House. Danke für die schöne Zeit!

Naprostá spokojenost

  • 5 of 5
Domek je velmi p?kný, ?istý a modern? za?ízený (spousta v?cí byla úpln? nová). Je tam vše, co vás jen m?že napadnout v?etn? ohništ? s grilem na horní terase. Poloha uprost?ed polí?ek banánovník?, kdy n?které trsy visely i p?es p?íchodovou cestu, se d?tem moc líbila. Paul do Mar je klidná vesnice, kde spíš než davy turist? vidíte b?žný život místních obyvatel. Byli jsme nadšeni a dáváme 5 hv?zdi?ek. Karla a Martin, Praha

Great family holiday

  • 4 of 5
We are a family with 2 adults and 3 children aged 5, 7 and 9 from Sweden. Our trip to Madeira was a success: the house was ideal for us with children who are big enough to go in stairs, otherwise it would have been to dangerous. Big bathrooms with space to take care of our kids. The only thing we would have liked to have was an oven in the kitchen.
Peaceful surrounding with fantastic view, the sunset at dinnertime and sunshine during breakfast on the veranda.
The description of the house was accurate, the property very clean and well maintained and the owners provided very good service. I would really recommend it to friends and relatives.
We liked the variation of activities: walking in the mountains, going for a whalesafari, exploring old vulcan channels, bathing at sandy beaches, enjoying the fantastic nature and incredible waves....
Unfortunately we obviously we unlucky with the restaurants we choose: one at the marina in Calheta and the other in Port Moniz. Visiting the mercado des levatores i Funchal be prepared for to be cheated, thats really a pity.
Worthwhile to visit this fantastic ireland both one and several times.

Nice holiday

  • 5 of 5
We really liked our stay at the Sunny House East and it is recommendable in all aspects.
The quiet little fishing village south of the island is a tourist-free zone and was well suited as a starting point for our excursions. From the location of the house we enjoyed the sound and view over the sea. The house itself is in a very good condition. The equipment is optimal and all was very clean and tidy. In our opinion, the best was the top covered terrace from which you could watch the sunsets in the evening very well. The owners were very welcoming and gave us very good tips for our vacation.


Das Sunny House East hat uns sehr gut gefallen und es ist in allen Belangen weiterzuempfehlen.
Das ruhige kleine Fischerdorf südlich der Insel ist Touristenfreie Zone und eignete sich gut als Ausgangspunkt für unsere Exkursionen. Die Lage des Ferienhauses mit Meerblick und Meeresrauschen war wunderschön. Das Haus selbst, befindet sich in einem sehr guten Zustand, die Ausstattung ist optimal, es war alles sehr sauber und ordentlich. Am besten hat uns die oberste überdachte Terasse gefallen, von der man abends die Sonnenuntergänge sehr gut beobachten konnte. Die Vermieter waren sehr herzlich und haben uns sehr gute Tips für unseren Urlaub gegeben.

EXCELLENT séjour dans la Sunny House East

  • 5 of 5
Simplement EXCELLENT.

La maison est vraiment géniale et correspond parfaitement aux photos du site. Grande cuisine, un salon, deux terrasses, deux salles de bain, 3 grandes chambres, c'est pas la place qui manque. Le gros plus de cette location, tout est parfaitement équipé (transats, parasol, barbecue, vaisselle complète...), le linge de lit est fourni (même les serviettes de bain et de plage, trop cool). Tout est très propre.

Les barbecues en terrasse le soir, au milieu des bananiers, au pied des falaises, face au coucher de soleil sur la mer c'est tout simplement superbe. La vue est magnifique.

Paul, le propriétaire est vraiment super sympa (rendez vous dans un bar pour récupérer les clés et il nous offre un petit café, merci) et donne d'excellents conseils sur Madère.

Rapport qualité/prix IMBATTABLE. Allez y vraiment les yeux fermés, vous ne le regretterez pas!!!

Madère est vraiment une superbe île et la maison est située sur la côte sud, la plus ensoleillée.

Si nous retournons à Madère, on réserve la Sunny House.

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.
