We enjoyed our stay at Vista Mar: Well-equipped, especially kitchen and DVD collection, patio with a great view, good starting point for tours around the island and committed hosts. We arrived late in the evening and didn’t have to worry about what to eat for breakfast, because we found some important things in the fridge (Thank you!!!).
We can recommend staying at Vista Mar.
The rooms were larger than they appeared in the photos, as was the terrace, which has an unobscured view of the sea and sunset. The house was very clean, and adequately equipped. The owner met us and explained how everything worked. The situation is unbelievably quiet, with no traffic noise, and the air is unpolluted. The directions to get there were good, though it would help to know that the penultimate turn is at a roundabout. It was great to have a washing machine. We could pick oranges from the tree and at other times people have been able to pick avocadoes. The weather was quite chilly when we were there and we would have appreciated more heating and warmer bedding. We hired a car to get to the house and travel around, and you do need one, as the nearest shops are a couple of miles away. We cooked for ourselves, having shopped en route at the large market (Mercado dos Lavradores) in Funchal and subsequently at the supermarket in Calheta and in village shops. At the time of our stay, the centre of the island was very misty and rainy so we did not do some of the more famous levada walks, but enjoyed visiting other areas. We explored the sunnier western side of the island - there is excellent access by car from Vista Mar to a number of villages and levada walks. One day we walked from the house itself to Prazeres and the Levada Nova. We spent two days visiting gardens close to Funchal. The Botanical Gardens are outstanding, and the Convent of Santa Clara is fascinating. Christmas is colourful in Madeira, with lots of delightful cribs in the villages. Overall we had a peaceful and enjoyable week.
We stayed for two weeks in Oct 2013 at Vista Mar. The house lies only one or two minutes away from the street and it is very quiet and peaceful place. The interior is lovely and provided everything we needed (also for self-cooking). We enjoyed having lunch and breakfast on the sunny terrace. Furthermore it is a good basis for hiking. We recommend this beautiful place to everybody.
I must say Vista Mar exceeded our expectations and proved to be a good place to explore Madeira. The location is very quiet and private. The house is spacious and well-equipped and and the large terrace with its avocado tree and sea views couldn't be better. Unfortunately for us, the weather wasn't always kind - no rain for months until the day we arrived and a much better forecast on the day we left!
We were particularly impressed with the ample supply of consumables such as kitchen paper, sandwich bags etc. The house was clean and tidy and the owners happy to help.
We would like to return to Madeira maybe to see it in a different season and would not hesitate to return to Vista Mar.
We spent two weeks at Vista Mar and enjoyed every second. It is easy to find with the provided description and lacks nothing one might need. The view from the terrace is, as promised, just wonderful, but the location is also great to start a tour to anywhere on the island.
We can highly recommend Vista Mar and will definitely stay there again if we come back to Madeira.
