The Ideal Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Hi Louise & Raul
We would like to thank you both for your kind reception on our arrival, and the hospitality throughout our stay at your cottage.
The cottage was ideal, with all modern amenity's, quiet, lovely scenery form the veranda, nice pool, just what we needed, a brake and to do our own thing, go out and eat the lovely local food, witch was all very good, and with good service.
The tour that you kindly recommended with Manuel was absolutely fantastic, he showed us all the places to visit in the south of the island, and told us the history as we went from place to place, well worth it.
He also showed us the north of the island. stopping at a restaurant, and advising us on a local dish to try before dropping us at the airport on the way back.
( very nice man )

Thanks again
Colin & Sue
PS
Looking forward to returning

Tranquil Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the cottage which is finished to a high standard and is a home from home experience with all your home comforts.

Louise and Raul were very welcoming and friendly, great hosts the place has a relaxed atmosphere.

If you intend to walk take good footwear as the town is a 15 minute down hill walk but the reverse walk is challenging on your carves which we did every night but you can jump in a cab as there are plenty on hand. You can drive but the roads remind me of our visit to Sanfransisco so not for the faint hearted but motorways fine.

We will definitely stay here again when we visit Maderia again.

Tranquil retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the cottage which has every thing that you need and is finished to a very high standard. We will definitely stay there again when we visit Maderia.

Louise and Raul are both lovely and you feel like you are at home and have known them for ages such a warm friendly welcome.

Definitely take good footwear if you intend to walk as the accommodation is at the top of a steep hill. An easy 15 minute walk down town but challenging on your carves as we walked it every evening as easier than driving as Sanfransisco comes to mind not for the faint hearted driving down town but motorways are fine.

This was our first visit it Maderia and we had a great holiday as all the people in bars and restaurants friendly and helpful speaking very good English.

A Wonderful Week in Madeira

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I were lucky to spend a week in this lovely cottage for Christmas, and we had a fabulous time! Louise & Raul are simply wonderful. From the very first email, Louise was very professional, prompt and helpful. She was always available if we had questions or needed anything. They both did a marvelous job restoring the cottage.

The cottage was just as it's described. It is in great condition, very clean, and perfectly sized for 2 people. The layout was great, the shower wonderful, and the bed very comfortable. We used the kitchen (and outdoor bbq) a good bit and it was equipped with everything we needed. The TV/DVD worked great, as did the stereo. The WIFI was a bit moody, but we were still able make phone calls and check email when needed. The washer was really nice to have, as it enabled us to travel light and not have to check luggage. There are some books and maps about the area in the cottage as well. An iPod docking station and more DVDs would be a nice addition someday. We really enjoyed the courtyard area, but we didn't utilize the terrace with the view much. We didn't get to use the pool either (too busy exploring!)

As mentioned by others, it is a 15 minute very steep walk to the city center (restaurants, grocery store, etc). We usually walked down, but took a taxi back up. We almost rented a car, but so glad we didn't - as we didn't need to. For the same price, we had Manuel pick us up and take us to the airport, as well as take us on two full day trips to see different parts of the island (the West side and the East side). Manuel is really nice, speaks English, is professional, punctual, and a wealth of information! He knows all the roads, the short cuts, the best views, the good restaurants, the best things to see and even where to park. We never felt rushed and we saw (and learned) so much more than we would have had we tried to do those trips ourselves.

We both would have liked to stay another week - to do more walks and explore more areas, but the cottage was already booked for New Years. The island is beautiful and there is so much to see and do. Great weather, good restaurants, lovely city, and fantastic people. I could easily see returning here and staying in the cottage again or trying one of Louise's other properties.

Owner's Response: Hello & thank you for taking the time to make a review of The Cottage. I am so pleased that you enjoyed the accommodation and thought that everything was finished to a high standard. We have just installed a new Wi-fi modem just for the cottage so the internet is now 100% in & outside the property. We have ipod speakers in our other rentals so i think your right, it is about time we upgrade the cottage from the stereo & cd´s to an ipod doc! It´s great you made use of the public transport, taxi´s and went on one of Manuel´s Island tours, he looks after you very well, there is still so much to see & do without a car and this way you got to relax too! Once again thank you, best Regards Louise.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a week spent in Louise's cottage in March and had a fabulous time. Louise was extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for her. The cottage is furnished to a very high standard with everything you could possibly need which made our stay very relaxing. Funchal is a very busy town especially when the cruise liners come in. The market and the old town are a must as well as the cable car and the toboggan ride. We would highly recommend the accommodation.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your great review and kind comments, we aim to please and always like our guests to feel that nothing is too much trouble. Well done for taking the Toboggan ride from Monte, it´s great fun i´m sure you´ll agree. The "Old Town" with it´s many restaurants, cafés & bars, & the Markets are lovely to visit, i think this area has so much character and is not too far to explore from the cottage either, thank you again for choosing our property, Louise.

We would just like to say thank you to Louise and Raul for a very enjoyable holiday. From start to finish we found it very easy to book,travel and explore Madeira. The cottage had everything we required and lots of information which was very helpful.
We had a lovely day trip with Manuel who told us about the Island showing us some wonderful scenery. Graham and Paula.
