FABULOUS, COMFORTABLE NEW HOME WITH HEATED POOL IN VILLAGE OF ARCO DA CALHETA

Calheta Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 bed, 3 bath, very private, large terrace, gardens, stunning views, car port

Completed in 2008 to a very high standard, this house (mostly ground floor) was built for comfort and as much outdoor living as possible. You'll be surprised and delighted by the space and light both inside and out, and by the breathtaking views over the village to the Atlantic. The private driveway leads into a large courtyard with carport and access to the hacienda, pool and terrace area. Here you have complete privacy for sunbathing, swimming and eating, and the pool has a constant depth of 1.40 metres. The large and superbly-equipped Miele kitchen is the first room you come to, and from there an archway opens into a huge sitting/dining room with comfy sofas and armchairs, dining table, floor-to-ceiling double glazed windows, 40 inch LED TV, an open log fire and under floor heating for winter. Beyond is the study (a child can sleep here on a Z-bed) and, opposite, a guest WC/shower room. Further on is the en-suite double bedroom (ideal for anyone with mobility difficulties).

Upstairs, the master bedroom with en-suite shower room has a large balcony.

It was very difficult to put in writing our wonderful 4 week stay in this villa. We had a fantastic time with every comfort possible. Vanda was a great help too and looked after us extremely well. Home from Home. We were blessed with good weather and out more or less every day walking the Levadas. Madeirans are so friendly and chatted to many 'locals' (in the best way possible considering we couldn't speak portuguese) We also walked around paul de serra and rabacal. Brilliant. We will be back! Thank you very much Tony and Judith, your villa is wonderful.
Owner's Response: Hello K & M and we are so pleased you enjoyed your four weeks in Casa Madrinha in January 2013 so much and found the local people so friendly. Thank you for your lovely comments and we hope you'll be able to come back to Madeira before long. Happy New Year from Tony and Judith!

Perfect home

We spent a nice week here on Madeira. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t as good as we expected. A few days it rained a lot so we couldn’t see as much as we wanted but what we have seen was very beautiful.
Highlights were a hike to the “25 Fontes”, cute cows with their calves on the road at 1400m elevation and 10m visibility and, during a boat trip on the Atlantic, dolphins.
Thanks to your warm and perfect house even the rainy days were comfortable. Overall we had a great time. Thank you so much.

Owner's Response: Lovely to receive your review and thank you. Sorry you had some rainy days but you obviously overcame the wet and made the most of your stay! Best regards to you all, Tony and Judith

Great holiday, beautiful island, lovely house

We spent a wonderful relaxing 14 days in your lovely home. Upon arrival we enjoyed a lovely beef lasagne from Paula – your food suggestions are a very welcome extra!
Thank you for the hiking and dining out tips. Our favourite hikes were the Ponta de Sao Lorenco and Pico Ruivo. After a day out in the heat – great weather throughout – it was a relief to cool off in the pool and hang around the house.
Overall – a great holiday, beautiful island and very friendly people.
Best regards,

Casa Madrinha - a perfect home from home

What a wonderful place to celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary – and the last 19 have been on Madeira. Without exaggeration, this house is the most pleasant, best designed and welcoming place we have stayed; it really has been sharing a home. Ideal central island location for Levada walkers and island sight-seeing.
Owner's Response: Many thanks, J & J. Not long now until your return visit in March to celebrate your 45th wedding anniversary! Congratulations from us both and have another wonderful holiday. Tony and Judith

Review for Casa Madrinha - Oct14, 2012 (1 week)

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
We (my husband, our son (6 y) and myself) had a perfect stay in Casa Madrinha. Communication before and during our stay with Tony, the owner of the house, was very professional and friendly.
Directions to the house were without any faults and all guidance and support (e.g. rental agency) was accurate and prompt.
The house was in a perfect state. Everything was clean and working and very well maintained. The house is perfectly equipped. Decoration of the house is very lovely and the personal items in the house provide a cosy atmosphere and we felt really being at home. Maps and information material provided in the house were very helpful.
The location of the house is outstanding. It has a wonderful pool and from each room you have a stunning view over the ocean. The whole house and pool is absolutely appropriate for children, our 6 years old son also felt very welcome. We ordered food from Paula the day of arrival which was very delicious. Paula also had very helpful tips where to find what.
We very much liked our stay in Porto Moniz, a small village located in the north shore of Madeira Island which is very well known by it’s crystal clear water natural swimming pools. This was a lot of fun for our son.
One thing we remarked in Madeira was that children are not necessarily the target group of Madeira´s tourism. It did not bother us at but if you are looking for entertainment for your children I would not choose Madeira.

To make a long story short: We would definitely recommend Casa Madrinha to our friends and family and thank Tony for this wonderful relaxing week.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a wonderful review, Regina. It will be of great help to future guests. We are so pleased you all had such a great holiday here. Happy New Year from Tony and Judith

A perfect holiday destination, well away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist areas on Madeira. Situated 250 metres above sea level and accessed by its own driveway, Casa Madrinha sits privately and with stunning views on a terrace in the pretty, rural village of Calheta, next to banana plantations and small holdings. Thanks to the new road system you can drive round the whole island in a day so the island's top attractions, including Funchal, are within easy reach. Only 5 minutes' drive brings you to Calheta with its protected beach of golden sand, a marina offering dolphin/whale watching excursions and deep sea fishing boats for charter, a hotel, supermarket, bank, art gallery and good choice of restaurants; or 15 minutes away you have the laurel, levada and waterfall wonderland of Rabaçal and the wide open expanses of the Paul da Serra - fantastic walking terrain. Car hire is necessary to enjoy all that this area has to offer and to explore this beautiful island
