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 Municipality of Funchal
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 ! We have just returned having spent 2 weeks watching the dolphins playing in the sea, a magical breakfast experience.

Karen mike and the team.
The villa and the service given by the owners surpassed our expectations. The photos don’t do it justice as it is even more stunning! Fantastic location and every possible thing you might need is supplied and all at a very high level of quality. We would thoroughly recommend this beautiful villa.

Thank you for your feedback on the photos we will have a think about how we can improve them. We hope to welcome you as our guests again should you wish to return to Madeira. Karen and Mike.
Home from home comfort,wonderfully equipped,great position excellent holiday home.found Mirela very friendly and welcoming also helpful,would recommend to others would probably return in the future thanks to Karen and mike
The property was clean tidy and of a high spec, just what we were looking for.
we found the villa to be spacious and very comfortable. We particularly liked the Aircon and en suites in each bedroom, along with the balcony and terrace space which would be ample even if the villa had 6 people in it. The kitchen was also fully spec’d with a great coffee machine being the highlight for us. We spent most of our time outside so the comfortable outdoor seating was also much welcomed. The owners have clearly thought of everything well done to them!
Thank you very much for your super 5 star review we really appreciate it and are happy you liked our house and it met with your expectations. We hope many future guests will read your review and understand what a fantastic and unique place we have here right over the sea in Funchal. Thanks again and kind regards Karen & Mike
Like home from home
We had a fantastic 2 week stay this January. Everything was perfect, from the chauffeur collecting us at the airport, the welcome we received at the villa by Ricardo, the villa itself which was appointed to the highest standard we have ever had, Mirella cleaning and looking after us, the general attention to detail which the owners should be very proud of, the gorgeous views and the icing on the cake was the weather! We could ask for no more and will definitely be booking again in the near future. A truly wonderful place to stay within easy walking distance of the town. If you are thinking of booking, then don't hesitate as you won't be disappointed.

Thank you for your positive review.
It is always nice to know that the efforts of our team are appreciated and that the Villa meets with your expectations .
We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Excellent location with good views over the sea.
The property is in easy walking distance to the old town, though being Madeira it is of course uphill on the way home. There are lovely views over the sea and a large terrace well equipped with tables chairs sunshades etc, to do that from.
The house is extremely well equipped with good quality goods and really does have everything you need. There are 3 ensuite double bedrooms. One has a seaview and a small terrace, the second has a small terrace and no real view and the third is on the ground floor and we always referred to it as the cellar. This third bedroom is the only downpoint of the whole property.
Another bonus is that there is a garage. You do not actually need a car, you can walk to town and there is a bus stop outside. However if you choose to have a car, the garage is really good news.
Finally Karen answered our queries by return. Thank you
