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

Very pleased with this villa - it really is a lovely place in beatuiful surroundings. We all agreed we had never stopped at a place so well equipped. not once did we have to say "If only they had........" or "I wish they had a ..........". It really is a home from home and we certainly did not want to return to the UK. The pool was enjoyed by all, once we got over the feeling of falling into the sea! We all fell in love with Madeira and will most definitely return.
Will definitely recommend this property to friends.
The idiot guide on how to get from the airport was foolproof.

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.

November Break

  • 5 of 5
We loved the villa and its view over the sea. Even in November we found the weather was hot enough to sunbathe (on some of the days) making the pool very welcome, and the weather was never cold, but could get wet for a short time. It could also get wet if you drove up into the mountains.
Villa was well equipped, more than we really needed, and the wifi was useful.
Nearest restaurant, up the hill, was excellent, as were those in nearby villages, Calheta and Jardim do Mar. Nearest supermarket in Calheta had all the essential stuff. A car is essential.
Other reviewers have mentioned yappy dogs but they were only noisy for brief periods, and didn't spoil our enjoyment.
Highly recommend staying here.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5
Excellent property with stunning views and accommodation. My 20 and 17 year old girls were amazed by the house and pool and it exceeded expectations.

Large bedrooms, a luxury bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and very large shower cubicle. Sound systems and Sky TY that all worked. Wireless available but we deliberately didn't use as trying to escape.
Plentiful choice of garden furniture for sunbathing, eating or reading.

Very quiet and secluded yet within easy access of mountains and coastal road. Can walk to local shops and cafes but they are up a steep hill, great for a first day explore. Good supermarket in Calhetta 10 mins away by car and choice of 4-5 reasonably priced reastuarants down by the Marina. Walked down one day but a steep climb back up.

Visited Funchal, the mountains and North and West of the island. Walked from Rabacal via a levada to beautiful pools and waterfalls.

First time in Madeira. A good holiday enjoyed by all. We hope to return
