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 last Christmas in which 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 Madeira

We have been travelling to Madeira for 30 years and have taken great care to obtain a property which suits the high expectations of visitors to Madeira.

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 !

Villa in Old Funchal - Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying @ this villa and once again was not disappointed. The location is perfect in Old Funchal, within walking distance of fabulous restaurants, the ocean, the marina, pier and the Farmers Market. The home looks exactly as shown in the pictures and is immaculate.

The owners have though of everything ensuring the home is completely equipped. Highly recommend and will return for sure.

Beautiful villa, lovely location, very well equipped

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for 4 nights to extend our holiday in Madeira. Karen and Mirela - (their housekeeper in Funchal) could not have been more helpful in regard to our booking and gave us exceptional service and were so accommodating to assist us before and during our stay. Communication was also exceptional with prompt responses to any questions. The villa itself is beautiful, so clean and very well presented and the air conditioning was a real plus due to the very hot weather during our stay. Everything has been thought of to ensure you holiday runs smoothly and the villa is very well equipped, so no need to keep constantly running to the shop- a real home from home. The location overlooking the sea in the old town is brilliant and it only a short walk to restaurants etc and into the main town. We will definitely return and would like to thank you all for a lovely holiday ...the slight delay in writing this review is only due to the fact that I was so chilled when we returned to the UK I forgot to write it!

What an amazing villa!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned after a week in Madeira and I can't recommend this villa enough! The attention to detail was fantastic, the villa was everything we expected and more! A beautiful view, great location near all the restaurants and the old part of Funchal and lovely people that made our stay even more enjoyable: Mirela who made sure we had everything we needed and Rafael who took us to some amazing places. Thank you so much Karen and Mike for sharing your beautiful house, we will be coming back!

A perfect holiday home

  • 5 of 5

W.O.W. This property is by far one of the best we have stayed in during the many years of traveling. Beautifully appointed. Well equipped. Designed and refurbished to a really high standard. They have absolutely everything you'll ever need. First impressions count for everything and it is quite simply a 'wow' moment as soon as you walk through the front door into the lounge and kitchen area. This beautiful living area provided us with spacious opulence. All the essentials were laid on, ready for our arrival. There are three perfectly appointed bedrooms, two upstairs, one in the basement, all with en-suite bathrooms. The views overlooking the harbour entrance from the balconies leading out from the lounge and main bedroom were lovely.

The property is maintained by Mirela and another young lady who made us all feel very welcomed and valued throughout our stay.

The photos often mislead but these most definitely do not. They initially sold the property to us along with the previous excellent reviews and we were not disappointed. You won't be either! What you see is exactly what you get, a stunning property, perfect location with just a short walk into Funchal old town. Quite simply the most perfect base for your break to Madeira. Highly recommended.

Amazing place, fabulous all round!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I booked this I was over the moon- Karen kindly organised transport to the villa. When we all walked in we all went wow!!!....as we spent time there we realised how much thought had gone into customers needs.....we all decided we need to add some things in our own kitchens!

The location is perfect, just a short stroll into the old town which is stunning and with amazing sea views. A special mention for Mirella who greeted us & was so helpful.

We loved this place that much we are already arranging next year!

Thankyou Karen- love your house! Xx
