About Karen Pickering
Our first visit to Madeira was for our Honeymoon 30+ years ago and we have been returning ever since. It was our visit At Christmas 2014 when we found the house and are extremely happy to share it with you. We live in the UK, have one Son and are both working professionals.
Karen Pickering purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Karen Pickering chose Santa Maria Maior
We have been travelling to Madeira for over 30 years and have taken great care to obtain a property which suits the high expectations of visitors to Madeira. We wanted a property where we could watch the cruise ships and fire works and had undisturbed views of the sea. These requirements limited our available search to the one road (Rue do Lazareto ) which we were rewarded with finally found a house on completing in June 2015.
What makes this Villa unique
It was watching the cruise ships on New Years eve from the terrace which convinced us that this was the right property for us. We had been searching in this area for many years and the view sealed the deal ! We have just returned having spent 2 weeks watching the dolphins playing in the sea, a magical breakfast experience.

Ideally situated close to the old town, super views overlooking the sea, a kitchen better equipped than our own at home. There is plenty of room for 6 adults in ensuite bedrooms and spotlessly clean. Mirela who looks after the property couldn't have been more helpful and Rafael the taxi driver was great too!! Mike and Karen have the perfect holiday home.
Amazing, do not miss the chance to stay here!
Everything about this house is wonderful. Sitting on the terrace overlooking the sea watching the Dolphins was certainly a highlight. Everything you are likely to need during a stay is in the house with attention to those little things. Mike and Karen are very helpful (quick to respond to questions) and clearly take pride in providing the best experience they can for your stay. Mirella who's greets you and oversees the house is warm and welcoming and is available throughout to help if you have any questions. The house is very well maintained and spotlessly clean. It's only a short stroll into Old Town with its restaurants, bars, cafes and relaxed atmosphere. We often side stepped Old Town and walked along the seafront turning into the newer part of town then walked back through Old Town. We love the market and the outdoor markets the seemed to pop up
I would definitely recommend staying at this property and we intend to return ourselves as soon as we can
Thank you for taking the time write a review. It means a lot to us that you had a great time and are looking to return in the near future. We are very proud of our team and their commitment to maintaining the high standards expected by our guests. Looking forward to welcoming you back soon.
Brilliant villa, brilliant location !
Karen and Mike are great owners with really good communications and information. Finding the villa was easy and we were welcomed by Mirela who was very helpful throughout. The garage is perfect (plenty of room for even a large car), as parking is difficult given the villas close vicinity to the centre of Funchal. The villa is in a quite location with great sea views. It is very modern, clean and well equipped with comfy beds and inside/outside furniture. The location means that it is only a few minutes walk to the nearest cafe and many good restaurants, with the town centre a few minutes further. We would definitely return to this villa and would highly recommend it.
Thank you for your review and are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kare, Mike and Mirela.
