Perfect 5* Holiday Home
Submitted: August 21, 2012
Stayed: May 2012
Lovely villa located up the winding roads of Canhas. We were met by the owners, who gave us a typically Madeirense, warm welcome! We were shown around the villa, introduced to the maid, presented with our welcome gifts and then left to our own devices for the remainder of our stay.
The house was beautifully presented, clean and well maintained. The maid turned up every day, and cleaned everything! Bedrooms, bathrooms, the pool, the kitchen, she washed everything in site!
The pool, paddling pool and the jacuzzi were constantly used, we really liked the fact that you could lock the gates to the pool as we have young children. We made good use of the games room and spent alot of time there! The barbecue facility is lovely and we enjoyed quite a few espetadas. Our children enjoyed the garden and loved playing there. There is also wi-fi, which we found invaluable. There is plenty of room to park your car(s) and the villa is quiet, peaceful and secure.
There is a restaurant, supermarket, ATM's and a pharmacy literally 2 minute's walk from the villa.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we are a family of 5 with 2 young children and we cannot hold Casa do Retiro in high enough regard.
I think the one thing that sums up how much we enjoyed our stay here, is that my children are constantly asking me, "when are we going back to the holiday home?"
To the owners I say, congratulations on having such a beautiful home, we hope to see you again soon, when we next visit Madeira. Obrigado!
