About Susana da Costa Gomes
I am 33 born in South Africa, my parents are Maderian and we decided to move to this magnificent island 12 years ago. I designed and decorated the house for my personal use, however I have not had the opportunity to use it, hence why I decided to share it with people who want to visit this amazing island.
Susana da Costa Gomes purchased this House in 2005
Why Susana da Costa Gomes chose Municipality of Funchal
It is ideally located, with its welcoming locals and choice of bars, cafes and restaurants. Some of the areas best known attractions are only a short drive away. Funchal city centre is a 10 minute bus drive away. You are ideally situated as you able to easily explore the island and return to a relaxing home.
What makes this House unique
Villa Costa has an amazing mountain view, which can be appreciated from the patio, It overlooks a beautiful garden which includes a childrens splash pool

Beautiful, spacious villa, very good value
This is a beautiful, extremely spacious villa, both inside and outside. Incredibly good value.
It is not essential to have a car as there are fairly frequent buses in to town, No 9 and No 16, make sure you check the bus timetables in advance to avoid waiting. There are a lot of steps up to the villa which is not a problem at all if you are able bodied but means it is not easily accessible if you have mobility issues. The owner's mother is very friendly and helpful. I can't recommend this villa enough. Enjoy your stay!
Excellent property, excellent landlady
What an understated advert I must say, spending 2 weeks in this amazing property was better than I could have expected. The house was perfect, exactly like it was in the pictures and completely spotless.
If you’re looking for a 5 star hotel but don’t want to pay the stupid hotel prices (came up at £2500 for me for 2 weeks for 2 people), or you want to have more room and enough breathing space for 3 - 4 couples comfortably then this is the perfect place. I chose to stay in this property over the hotel because I enjoy cooking and I didn’t want to go out for dinner every night.
I'll just bullet point out the best bits
2. Suzy is a great Landlady, we had family over and she didn’t have any complaints and even joined us for a BBQ on Tuesday, when you invite her get her to make her cheesecake :D
3. Bathrooms were amazing, Lovely shower, lovely bathroom, spotlessly clean, no mould at all anywhere (unlike most hotels).
4. Rocky the dog :D, I spent 2 weeks trying to get him to play with me but he’s a little chicken, cute dog though.
5. Huge BBQ available on the terrace for you to use, it was big enough for me to do dinner for 15 people on it.
6. TV has cable and a number of English programs on it (albeit with subtitles, but it’s not England is it)
7. Suzy couldn’t do enough to help us, she called us cabs, recommended where to go, pointed out dinner options and even told us about seasonal events (firework competition)
8. Far enough out of Funchal to be pleasantly quiet but close enough for a 7 euro cab journey.
9. Huge kitchen with a great stove and oven.
10. Washing machine out the back which is very handy, it’s normally pretty hot so clothes will dry quickly.
11. Really, Really close to Madeira Shopping, you can walk it but I recommend the 4 euro cab. It’s pretty much uphill all the way. However you have the superstore there where you can do your weekly shopping and get drinks/breakfast etc etc.
12. You can walk around in your dressing gown and go and get a coffee from your huge kitchen, sit on your huge terrace and drink it whilst sitting in your swing seat checking out the views of funchal… Much better than having to have a shower in a cramped room, getting fully dressed and then waiting in a queue like a lemming at a busy Hotel breakfast room.
I really can’t give this property enough praise, I was so surprised when I got it for the price I did, all was perfect!
Wunderbare Basis für Wanderurlaub / Great base for hiking holiday
[English version below]
Wir waren mit drei jüngeren Kindern zum Wanderurlaub über Ostern in der Villa Costa. Trotz eines stark verspäteten Fluges wurden wir noch mitten in der Nacht herzlich empfangen.
Das Haus ist super eingerichtet, sehr groß und komplett ausgestattet. Für uns war besonders die Lage ganz toll: nahe der Schnellstraße über Funchal, von der man dennoch nichts hört.
Unsere Kinder haben sich im bunt eingerichteten Garten gerne umgesehen, die Tiere bewundert und sind ums Haus gerannt (wortwörtlich; für lebhafte Kinder ist die Möglichkeit der kompletten Umrundung super und in der Stadt nicht selbstverständlich). Das WLAN war toll, um hin und wieder etwas bei Netflix oder Amazon zu gucken.
Insgesamt ein sehr, sehr schöner Aufenthalt auf Madeira, nicht zuletzt wegen der Villa Costa. Wir empfehlen das Haus gerne weiter.
We visited Villa Costa for a hiking holiday with our three young kids during the Easter holidays. Although our flight was terribly late, we were warmly welcomed in the middle of the night.
The house itself is furnished in a great way, has large rooms and a huge ground floor and kitchen and three bathrooms had everything we needed. The location is especially great for a hiking holiday: near to the highway above Funchal and still not at all affected by its noise.
Our kids explored the little things, structures and bird cages in the garden with great joy, were delighted if they spotted Whitey the cat and ran around the house (literally; the ability to go around the house is great for restless young ones and not a given in an urban context). The wi-fi was great for the occasional episode on Netflix or Amazon.
All in all it was an extremely enjoyable holiday on Madeira, not least because of Villa Costa. We will heartily recommend it to everyone.
Estadia maravilhosa super bem localizada e com um acolhimento espetacular muito simpáticos. Se voltar à Ilha da Madeira não tenho dúvidas quanto a onde ficar alojada. Obrigada por tudo
Belle maison fonctionnelle
Belle maison fonctionnelle sur les hauteurs de Funchal.
La maison est très spacieuse, bien équipée, très agréable à vivre, à quelques minutes en voiture du centre-ville.
Seuls petits bémols : la connexion wifi est mauvaise et les aménagements extérieurs sont insuffisants pour une maison pouvant abriter jusqu'à 6 personnes.
VILLA AGRÉABLE EN FAMILLE
Nous avons découvert en famille l’île de Madère : SUPERBE !!
Depuis l'aéroport, nous avons trouvé facilement la villa et nous avons été accueillis avec le sourire par la mère de Suzana (malgré l'heure tardive de notre arrivée : 1 h du matin)... c'est une personne charmante, attentionnée et à l'écoute. Malgré notre problème de communication (notre anglais est vraiment du niveau scolaire !!!), nous nous sommes toujours compris et nous avons bien ri ensemble de cela.
La villa est spacieuse; chacun de nous a pu y trouver sa place. les literies sont bonnes. Prendre son petit déjeuner, dehors, au soleil, avec la vue sur le jardin magnifique fut un régal, surtout qu'en France, le temps était minable.... Elle est située à proximité de Funchal, des voies rapides et proche des supermarchés, des commerces.
Je ne regrette qu'une chose : que notre séjour n'ait duré qu'une semaine !!!
Je recommanderai cette location sans problème à un ami.
Nous souhaitons à Suzana et sa famille une bonne continuation dans le "tourisme" et nous pensons souvent à Rocky et à Cocorico :-)
