Fantastic house with the best sea view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Maria’s house from December 15 to February 16 and had a fantastic time in Porto Santo. The house is exactly as described. We were warmly welcomed in Madeira by Maria and in Porto Santo by the 2 Claudias. They are the contact in Porto Santo and looking after the house. The property was spotless clean and we got an introduction of the entire house with the washing machine, the gas for hot water, the BBQ etc. and a lot of tips which made life easier on the island. We can strongly recommend the house to all interested parties.

Our plan was to relax and get new power for the future. That plan worked perfectly. We played a lot of golf in the Porto Santo Golf Club. There are some nice restaurants on the island, but quite a lot are closed in winter time. Our favorite restaurants were Torres, Casa d’Avo and Vila Alencastre. But mostly we had dinner at home looking over the sea and enjoyed life.

We highly support the comments from the other reviewers, who liked this house as much as we did.

We will be back next year.

Perfect house with great sea view

  • 5 of 5

We spent an absolutely relaxing week in this great house and would highly recommend it to everyone. It was totally clean and equipped with everything you need. Fantastic kitchen with everything you need to cook on a high level. The house is decorated with very good taste (and love) in yellow, orange and blue. The sea view from the large terrace is just amazing. You can see from one end of the beach to the other. You see the waves and we never got enough of sitting there just enjoying the fantastic view.

We met the very sympathic owner Maria in Funchal before we came over to Porto Santo and she brought us fruits and herbs from her garden and gave us a lot of useful information. When we arrived at the house, Claudia who is working for Maria, welcomed us and we were surprised to find more welcome gifts like bread, cheese, vine, biscuits, water, many exotic fruits etc. Claudia is a very nice person who speaks good English and we could call her and ask for help if needed. Maria also organized a taxi driver in advance who picked us up when we arrived with the ferry. Everything was perfectly organized to let us feel like very appreciated guests.

The beach is amazing and it looks like in the Carribean Sea. We would recommend to walk along the beach until the end of the island and you will really experience privacy, nature, water in all shades of blue and much more.

The village is nice and clean and you can buy everything you need in the supermarket (also fresh fish).

We recommend the restaurant/beach bar 'Pe Na Agua'. It is at the beach (very close to the house) and you can sit inside or outside with great view. The food is very good and the prices more than reasonable. All in all we had a perfect stay and nothing to complain. We will definitely come back to this house and this beautiful island which is still a kind of secret address (at least in Germany many people haven't heard about it). Thank you Maria and Claudia for making our holidays perfect.

A unique villa with a terrific view over the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed for 2 weeks in this luxury villa with our 3 kids of 7 years, 5 years and 2 years old.

This villa is truly unique, the view over the ocean is gorgeous. When it is quiet, you can hear the waves. We have eaten every day outside on the big terrace.

The villa has a great kitchen which supports everything you need. The shower outside as well as the hammock were favorite by our children.

The host has given us a very warm welcome!

But not only the villa is terrific, the island Porto Santo has a lot to offer. After a couple of days we decided to hire a car to see more of the island and that was a great decision. We walked all the way up to Pico do Castelo and we have made some other hikes as well. We were surprised by stunning views over the island!!

We have had a superb holiday in a terrific villa on a lovely island!!

Stunning Villa with excellent views

  • 5 of 5

This luxury lifestyle villa was a real joy to stay in and the panoramic views from the terrace are just stunning.

We have stayed in Porto Santo many times and this is by far the best place we have stayed in, both in terms of location and quality of accommodation.

We found the owner to be very professional and friendly to deal with,

The property is presented to the very highest of standards and is exceptionally well equipped with everything you could every wish for in addition to being spotlessly clean. Lovely open plan lounge/diner/high end kitchen plus good sized bedrooms.

Great house, great location - Could not ask for more

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We staied in this wonderful house from 01 to 05 june 2015.

What can we say....we really loved this place! It is a full accessorized house, comfortable and with a great sea view!

We never expected to find such a beautiful home, just sad to leave from there.

Unfortunately the weather was often cloudy, but it wasn’t a problem because we often had walks on the sandy beach or used bikes (they are free of charge!) to go and visit nearby.

At our arrival there was a private taxi to wait us and bring to the house. Excellent service.

Thank you really much Armanda!

wunderschönes haus

  • 5 of 5

wir hatten einen wunderschönen urlaub in dem sehr schönen, gepflegten, sauberen geräumigen haus. maria, die vermieterin ist eine sehr nette frau, als wir anreisten hatte sie uns ein warmes essen einschließlich nachtisch gekocht. den tisch wunderschön gedeckt, eine flasche rotwein mit tollen gläsern stand auf dem tisch.......eine riesenschale frisches obst und noch viel mehr.

maria hat an alles gedacht was einen urlaub erleichtert. selbst 2 rucksäcke für unterwegs und einkaufstaschen sind vorhanden, sowie ein elektrischer fliegenschläger, der jede schnake trifft.....das haus ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet, alles ist vorhanden, selbst zusätzlich 2 gemütliche sitzssäcke. von spülmaschine bis waschmaschine. waschpulver ,. toilettenpapier u.v.m.- alles da.

ganz toll ist die terrasse von der man einen wunderschönen blick auf das meer und strand hat. selbst bei dunkelheit kann man die brandung sehen, da der strand z.t. von der beleuchtung angestrahlt wird.

eine große glasscheibe (glaswand) ermöglicht bei fast jedem wetter draußen zu sitzen, auch wenn es noch so windig ist und regnet.

wir waren im november da und lagen dennoch bis in der nacht draußen auf der schönen terrasse, wenn auch mit einer decke zugedeckt. es war herrlich.

porto santo ist eine schöne, überschaubare insel mit einem tollen langen strand. uns hat es sehr gut gefallen, in diesen 2 wochen war es uns nicht langweilig, den strand hatten wir für uns alleine. außerhalb der saison ist es sehr ruhig hier, aber genau so wollten wir es. das wasser ist glasklar, wer keine badewannentemperatur erwartet kann bei ca. 20 -22 grad im meer baden.

im supermarkt kann man frischen tollen fisch kaufen, zu sensationell günstigen preisen...die fähre bringt fast jeden tag frischen fisch von madeira. schön von der terrasse aus zu sehen, wenn sie richtung hafen einläuft....

man kann wandern, stundenlang am strand oder auf die berge,( es gibt 3 oder 4) oder radfahren,

uns hat es sehr sehr gut gefallen, wir haben uns sehr gut erholt. eine insel und ein haus zum erholen, wer den rummel. sucht, dem wird es vielleicht ein wenig langweilig. in den sommermonaten soll es anders sein, da ist dann auch viel mehr "los".

und so "kahl" ist die insel auch nicht, es gibt palmen, kakteen und blühende sträucher und blumen etc.

liebe maria, nochmals vielen dank für alles und die nette betreuung.

Located in the Atlantic Ocean, the island of Porto Santo is one long beach with a bit of an island attached. The beach of soft golden sand is a bather's paradise and stretches for nine kilometers along the southern coast and it is bathed by a very clear, turquoise blue sea. Not only is the water that surrounds the island clean and calm, but also its sand has rare therapeutic properties, which have been scientifically tested, due to being rich in Iodine, Calcium and Magnesium, making this island, a privileged spot where health and well-being go hand in hand.

The safety, as well as the island’s hospitable people makes this holiday venue a quiet and relaxing place, where the island’s natural beauty captivates everyone that goes for a walk or a bike ride on its many trails.

Other than the beach, the island of Porto Santo has a large range of different activities: walking, recreational fishing, diving, sailing, boat and canoe trips, windsurf, kitesurf, jetski, cycling, equestrianism, tennis and also golf, on a course designed by the ex-champion Severiano Ballesteros.

For all this and much more, we can say that this little island is the perfect getaway from the bustle of everyday life.
