Eight of us arrived to a fine welcome with barbeque and wine which I had pre arranged with the Owner (Charlie). The accommodation was well designed, comfortable and clean.
We had a great holiday the highlight of which being the landing of a 70lb game fish on Charlie's boat (!)
The "den" by the pool is perect for bbq's and chilling out watching the sunset over this beautiful island.

Would we come back?. In an instant.

Lovely villa, great family holiday

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful family holiday at Charlie's villa for 11 days in August. It was perfect for a family with three children aged 15, 12 and 8. Loved the pool and spent the evenings playing cards outside after a BBQ or meal out. The clubhouse houses the kitchen and living area, separate from the main (en suite) bedrooms in the villa. Perfect for Hubby to get up early, watch the sunrise and make breakfast without waking the rest of us. Spent an afternoon on Charlie's boat and saw lots of dolphins with their babies, and some flying fish! Charlie is full of local knowledge and gave us several places to (try and) find. We found lots of hidden gems around Madeira whilst looking for them. The levada walks are exhilarating, especially if you don't know where you are going and have a fear of heights or sheer drops/mountain edges combined with over confident kids. Beautiful scenery. Lava pools are worth a visit. If you are going to the Botanical Gardens and/or wicker sledges at Monte, avoid the expensive cable car, and drive yourself. Thanks for a great holiday Charlie (aka Bill Nighy) and Mako. :o)

A unique and relaxing home, perfect for kids.

  • 4 of 5
As American travelers, we absolutely loved Madeira and thoroughly enjoyed this villa as well. There were 8 of us, 4 adults, and 4 children aged 12, 9, 5 and 4. It's the PERFECT place for kids really as the entire compound is surrounded by a wall and is gated. There are large amounts of space, but still feels intimate and cozy. There is a supermarket across the street from the beach (5-10 minute drive), or simply walk one block down the street that's across from the villa and there is a small market with all the essentials. Theres a nice cafe and bar there, and if you trek UP the road from the villa there is another nice cafe up the mountainside (5-10 min walk). GREAT pizza in the village of Loreto. Very clean upon arrival. Cable did not work when we got there however Charlie got someone out there THAT DAY to swap out the box and the kids were VERY happy about that. A++++ for that Charlie! All our favorite cable TV shows TLC, Discovery, CNN, Food Network, etc etc. are aired here. Really the only drawback was there was zero toilet paper when we arrived and the kitchen. Lots of chipped broken useless stuff (we had to throw out a few bowls we didn't want the kids messing with), broken knives, untensils/cookware/plasticware stuff that looks kinda gross and should be thrown out. But that stuff is cosmetic and can (and should) be replaced in an instant. Would we stay here again? YES! Did we love it here? YES!

Owner's Response: Well thank you our Amarican friends for a geat review,and tacking the time to do it.

As all things when renting a villa I always make a point of seeing the guessed in ,and doing a bank up check to see if all is correct,and that all are happy with what is supplied.

My cleaners always go thourgh the kitchen equipment ,and throw out all the damaged stuff
In the kitchen there are boxes of new things that can be taken ,and used as needed ,

Thanks again Charlie

loved everything about this villa!

  • 5 of 5
I'd come back again in a heartbeat!

The villa is simply gorgeous. Very well appointed with large bedrooms and high quality fixtures and fittings. Most of the bedrooms had top of the range en suite shower rooms, which we hadn't expected. A good size pool - perfect for a family or large group, and even the opportunity to BBQ inside and outside the clubhouse. Very clean, lots of kitchen equipment. The photo of the villa on this website doesn't do it justice.

Incredible views of the hills and the sea.

There are a few bars within easy walking distance as well as a couple of supermarkets or grocers and even a pizzeria, making this the perfect villa for a great holiday. The lovely beaches at Calheta are safe and clean, and are approx 3km away and a fairly straight forward drive from Funchal airport.

Great service from Charile, the owner, who was always around if we needed anything.

A great family holiday and by far the most luxurious villa we've ever stayed at.

Thanks Charlie!
