The accommodation surpasses the photos! You should have a car to stay here. It was a treat to have such a large house and access to a patio set under the grape vines, plus an outdoor dining table with an umbrella that seats 6. The clothes washing machine was a definite plus and there is an outdoor line to dry clothes. The unit is newly built and the appliances, furniture and spa like bathroom are wonderful. When we arrived we were greated warmly and also were able to say goodbye when we left. We were met with a home baked chocolate cake and some Madeira wine made from the grapes on the property. The house does not face the street but is down a short path. Use the geo coordinates and watch for the sign on the group mailboxes. Parking is on the street, but we had no problem finding a place. For driving around the island in all directions it was just as easy to drive all directions from the house as if you had started from Funchal. We appreciated being able to be active all day and to come back to quiet in the evening. I definitely would recommend that people consider this property. We have stayed in 7 rentals so far on this trip and this is definitely the best.
