Guestbook comments from the manager

Needless to say, this house is awesome! We had a wonderful time in Madeira and a lot of it is because of this place. The infinity pool defnitely added that extra special touch to our honeymoon and we loved the extra arrangements that were made for us.

We highly recommend using the "Madeira Car Tours & Walks" book - this offers a good tour of Madeira for people who don't want to walk too much!

Thanks for this wonderful holiday

What a wonderful place to stay. We have been to Madeira many times and can honestly say this is the best villa we have stayed in.

It has everything you need for an enjoyable stay.

We were just sad we couldn't spend more time in that delightful pool, the weather just was not kind enough, far too windy for three days, but that is unusual for us to get weather like that and we go around the same time each year.

Next time!

Thank you Vanda. We had a parking ticket on our last day whilst picking up some shopping in Calhetta, it was very early and we thought there won't be any traffic wardens around at this time...Wrong! Anyway after a quick phonecall to Vanda she offered to sort it our for us if we left the ticket and payment (4.50 euros). Such a relief!

Thank you Tony for letting us arrive earlier than usual, we were already in Madeira and there was no one in before, so very much appreciated.

Many thanks once again for a very enjoyable stay

Owner's Response: What a great, appreciative review you’ve submitted Chrissie and Tony! Nothing gives us more pleasure than knowing that guests have had a really good holiday (even if the weather wasn’t particularly kind) and feel happy with their accommodation. And it’s especially pleasing to hear that from you who have been to Madeira many times before. THANK YOU! Best regards, Tony.

EXcellent with outstanding views

  • 5 of 5

Having spent 30 hours getting here from UK via Tenerife and overnight in Gran Canaria, we were more than a little weary on our arrival (especially my 85 year old father!). However, the villa more than made up for this- as it is very well appointed with everything that you need to have a stress free holiday.

It certainly helped that the sun shone every day and sitting by the pool, on the terrace or one of our bedroom balconies overlooking the sea was just magical and allowed us to completely recharge our batteries!

Everything we needed had been thought of and we even pre-ordered some delicious home cooked food through the owner. Our thanks to Vanda also for making us feel so welcome. We hope to return soon!

The villa is about 45 minutes from the airport in a quiet village but you will definitely need a car to get out and about!

Owner's Response: What a horrid journey you had from UK and no wonder you were weary when you arrived. Bravo to you all, especially your Dad! You deserved all that October sunshine and it seems the villa with its pool and ocean views gave you just the total switch-off you all needed. Thanks for sharing it with us. Best regards, Tony

Great villa, with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

We booked a holiday in Madeira, just because we'd never been there before. We'd certainly go back. The island is stunning and there's loads of things to do. The contrast in scenery from the coast to the top of the mountains adds to the interest.

We picked Casa do Mar after an online search. We wanted a villa with a private pool and loads of space. We have 3 daughters, so having plenty of room and WiFi was an important consideration. The villa didn't disappoint. It's huge, and has a great pool that looks straight out over the sea. It's very well equipped, and had everything we wanted.

We'd certainly go back.

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house in a great location away from hustle and bustle of Funchal. Property was the most well equipped that we had ever stayed in. House was spotless and Vanda was very attentive and helpful. The heated pool was especially enjoyable. Have already recommended villa to everyone.

Excellent villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Casa do Mar is an excellent villa that is well maintained, well-equipped and very spacious. The pool and outside terrace is lovely with stunning views and plenty of room to relax - luckily for us the weather was in the mid 20s even though it was December! The TV, sound system, security etc was great and there were plenty of towels, blankets and heaters in the bedrooms. The bathrooms were good although the showers were a bit limp! At least they were hot. The property was very clean and Vanda who met us was very friendly. The meals we had pre-ordered were also great and I'd highly recommend these. Tony was also kind enough to get us some essentials in from the shop as we were arriving late.

Some people have complained about a dog next door but I only heard it bark once for about 3 minutes so we didn't have a problem.

We went to the restaurant up the road and had a lovely meal - excellent steak! Funchal was good for a day visit as was Calheta - the beach side restaurant at the hotel here was great. The shops and cafes up the extremely steep hill were great and perfect for a well-deserved drink. There are no pavements though so you have to be careful.

Casa do Mar is truly excellent and I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to get away from it all for a while.
