Fantastic base for nature & walking holiday: This is the perfect house for a group of friends to rent out together, or for a family who would like to discover Madeira´s natural side. The walks around the island are amazing, so are the beaches as the water is heated by the gulf stream. Explore the wild natural mountains with forests from before the ice-age, go on whale and dolphin diving expeditions. The tropical gardens are also of great interest. For serious golfers there are two golf courses close by, a short drive away and you can be playing at Santo da Serra where the Madeira Open has been staged so many times. The best feature of staying at Casa do Mar is your contact with the sea, you will have it as a constant backdrop in every room of the house. We hope you enjoy this dream villa.

Levada walks, golf and swimming nearby: The villa is the ideal base to explore the beautiful island of Madeira, its strategic location in the heart of Funchal means it is just by the seaside were you can swim, water ski, scuba dive, sail and much more. The 2 golf courses are very near, Palheiro Golf is just 10min away and Santo da Serra Golf is just 20min away. Madeira is a walkers paradise and from here you can reach the mountains and discover the levada trails. A bus stop is nearby, and the main road to the airport is very easy to catch. Local café and corner shop is a couple of meters down the road.

Authentic local culture: Escape the tourist areas and discover this jewel of a neighborhood in central Funchal, the old part by the sea. There are no tourist traps, just nice Madeiran houses with gardens, great sea views, local cafés and restaurants. Enjoy the buzzing old town by day and night, try the local fish restaurants and the new poncha bars. Its a safe and peaceful area, know for the excellent sunny climate by the sea.

Surround yourself in nature: Whether its walks or gardens this is the perfect base to explore Madeira´s natural side.

We love living in Madeira (in the old town naturally) and only invest in absolute dream houses with a sense of history and character right by the sea. The climate of Madeira makes it a great place to live all year long and its a privilege to meet guests that stay in our houses and to learn from them as well.

Location, location location. Right on top of the sea in the heart of the old town of Funchal. This is prime real estate, very very rare to find and impossible to buy as its the most sought after location in all Madeira.

Right on top of the sea, with the joy of watching the port and harbor activity. Central location so all the attractions and restaurants are just down the road. Sea views from every single room in the house. Relaxing to the sound of the sea and very good sun exposure year round as there is a sunny microclimate in this part of Madeira.

After our third stay at the casa do mar we still think, that it is the best place to stay in Funchal. The house is even more beautiful than the pictures, it is well maintained, equipped with everything you need and the location is just incredible. The owner or her representative are always available for any help or question. We really can recommend this house!

Dear Mrs. Abreu!
We want to say that we have had a very nice holiday in your house. Everything was perfect. We felt like living on a ship and enjoyed "living onboard" very much. My english cant find the best words for your pretty, comfortable and luxury house. Thank you very much. Maybe it wasn't the last time we have been there.
With kind regards

Great Natural Beauty

Absolutely stunning location and house, we felt so lucky to have booked the house as it made our honeymoon so much more special. The never ending sea views we got from every room in the house will be cherished memories for many years to come, and thanks for the great restaurant list and levada tips that made our stay much more local and interesting. Loved Funchal and the old town, the market is a real joy to go to walking every day, please thanks Moses for being a great driver and Madeiran Ambassador. We hope to return to Casa Mar very very soon.

In Awe of the setting, thanks for a 5 Star Holiday

Many thanks for such a great holiday, we felt so lucky to have booked Casa do Mar as the house really ticked all our boxes, and the ocean front setting is beautiful. House is equipped with everything we could want, nice and clean, very fresh when we arrived and found a free welcome pack waiting for us with delicous white wine, internet was fast and good (very important to us as my husbad had to work). The old town of Funchal is the nicest part of the city by far with a very authentic feel, beautiful crumbling traditional houses (we are quite tempted to buy something here and start our own renovation project). It was bliss to enjoy the sunshine, the house has sun loungers and it was such a treat to relax here after a mountain walk enjoying a cool drink and waving at the Cruises as they passed the house. Owner was very friendly and gave us restaurant tips (booked us a table at the Forte restaurant) We have booked to return next year in May.

Dear Cristina
Just to say how much we loved Casa do Mar. It is one of the the best holiday houses we have ever stayed in. Did you do the conversion? What was it like before?
Thanks again, and we hope to return one day.
Best wishes, Margaret

Stunning location, right above the sea you can see the waves breaking on the beach just below the house. Set in the charming old part of Funchal, just by the old fortress, typical Portuguese restaurants and village life. You can walk to any place in Funchal from here. A couple of metres away is the Barreirinha Beach, Funchal market, cafés, florists and the shopping heart of the island. Peaceful residential area, very rare to find a house in such a fantastic location by the sea so close to the city centre. Ideal for watching ships and port life while catching sun all day long on the vast terraces of this villa.

Other Activities: Big game fishing, levada walks, tropical gardens

Golf: Palheiro Golf 10min by Car. Santo da Serra Golf 25min by Car.

Notes:
Very comfortable and elegant interiors, just perfect for Madeira´s warm climate. Everything is new and carefully chosen to provide the best holiday possible in style. Plenty of outdoor furniture including sofa, sun loungers, hammock and dining table and chairs to make the most of Madeira´s lovely outdoor climate all year round. This part of Funchal is specially warm and sun exposure is the best on the island. The house has 3 stories so not very suitable for unsupervised toddlers or people with mobility problems due to the stairs. There are no barriers or baby-gates on the stairs although we do have nice solid banisters for good support. The house is well maintained to a high standard, our property manager is on call seven days a week for anything you might need or tips and information. The house is fully equipped for a short or long stay of many months, fully of charming details and elegant touches throughout the house. A dream vacation in the prefect setting.
