About Marilyn and Marc

My husband, Marc and I (Marilyn) are from Cape Town, South Africa. We moved to the UK in 2003 but decided that we needed to find a place that reminded us a little more of where we came from. We first visited Madeira in 2008 and eventually moved here in 2010. We bought our house on the South West coast as it is the warmest part of the island as well as wanting more of a rural and outdoor life-style for our 12 year old daughter who also attends the local Portuguese school and is now fluent in the language after a year!

Perfect, relax and enjoy the view

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely place to spend a relaxing holiday and a great base from which to explore the island. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed and Marilyn & Marc were fabulous hosts. They did everything to make us feel at home. The best place of the apartment is the balcony, where we had breakfast with the first sunbeams, and enjoyed a glass of wine during the sunset. In the meantime we had a beautiful view over Arco da Calheta and the ocean. Romantico Cabo Vista is a perfect accommodation for 2, right in the middle of a peaceful and quite village, so you can experience a bit of local life. From the balcony you’ll see and hear cows, goats, cocks and chickens, birds and dogs. Next to the balcony there is a garden with fruit trees and a BBQ. Levada walks start only a few minutes from the apartment, Funchal and other major tourist activities can be reached within half an hour. So we can only recommend this apartment.

A wonderful Christmas in Madeira!

  • 5 of 5

Our Madeiran Christmas lived up to all our expectations!

Marilyn and Marc struck a good balance between attentiveness and giving us our own space.

The apartment was one of the best we have stayed in. Simply but tastefully furnished, had everything we needed (even some Christmas decorations had been put up for us!).

One of its main assets was the amount of light that came in off the terrace. We had a rain-free fortnight and ate nearly all our meals outside, which was wonderful.

Calheta is a small hamlet on a hillside and the driving, initally, takes some getting used to, but the uninterrupted view of the sea is magical.

There is a well-stocked supermarket 10 mins drive away, and Calheta beach is lovely for a swim - one of only two sandy beaches on Madeira.

The slow pace of life on Madeira made us stop and relax, which is what we needed. We normally come back from frenetic city breaks exhausted and in need of a holiday; this time we truly did stop and read some books in between a few walks and drives to a few places.

We would heartily recommend this property for its location, its quality and its friendly owners. And we hope to visit again for another quiet Christmas when circumstances allow.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, spacious apartment for 2 with gorgeous views off of the balcony. My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon in early September. We wanted to have a relaxing base to go hiking, away from the tourist crowds of Funchal and we could not have found a better place. Marc and Marilyn are fabulous hosts, greeting us when we first arrived and giving us excellent insider tips and recommendations for the area. The apartment is comfortable, spotlessly clean and kitted out with everything you could need from wifi to a BBQ in the garden. STRONGLY recommend a rental car. We are already planning our next stay. Thank you Marc and Marilyn!

Excellent in every respect.

  • 5 of 5

This is a well appointed excellent one bedroom penthouse apartment. The

owners, Marilyn and Marc are very friendly and helpful, meeting us on arrival and providing a useful welcome pack. The driveway is quite steep and the turntable quite challenging at first but great fun once you get used to it. The stunning views from the balcony of the nearby villages, the coast and even the odd hang glider never cease to be of interest. A good base for walking and exploring the island. Always a relaxing place to return to after a marvellous day out and we couldn't wish for better. Excellent value and we hope to return next year. Thank you.

Map

Car: necessary

This is a well proportioned 1 bedroom penthouse above the owners house. It is situated in a mixture of rural small holdings as well as suburban houses. If walking is your passion, there are many routes directly from the penthouse, or just hop in the car and take a drive up to the top of the mountain where you can simply hike for hours or find various levada walks. If you want to chill out and relax, this is the place to do it!
