About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 6

This spacious house is 42 years old. Located in a quiet neighborhood, away from tourist resorts, 110 meters above sea level. It's a 15 minute walk to the center of Funchal and a 17 minute drive from the airport. A perfect location from which to explore the island as it's very central to go either east or west, as well as north. The city is a monument in itself. There are many things you can see and do in Funchal, like visiting the market, the Madeira wine museum, taking a boat trip to watch dolphins and whales, taking a cable car to the gardens of Monte, going on levada walks, etc. From the front side of the house you have views over the mountains and from the backside views over the ocean and the center of Funchal. The house has 3 bedrooms (all three with a double bed) and 3 bathrooms, a living room leading to the front yard, a dining room and a kitchen leading to the backyard. TV and Wi-Fi internet available, as well as a washing machine and laundry lines. All the windows have mosquito screens.

About Sietske and Aurelio da Costa

I'm from the Netherlands and my husband is originally from this beautiful island. We are temporarily living in Madeira and are enjoying the pleasant climate. Our children are grown up and are studying in France.

Why Sietske and Aurelio da Costa chose Funchal

The climate is pleasant all year round and the sun shines more often than in other parts of the island.

What makes this house unique

It's well located, away from the tourist area, on a hill overlooking Funchal and the ocean. In this location it feels more like living in a quiet town rather than in a city and yet you are in walking distance to the center of town.

The backyard is ideal for sun bathing because it's private. It's also a great place to sit or have a meal outside all year round. You can drink coffee on the balcony upstairs, and enjoy the wonderful views.

  • 5 of 5

The view from the patio is just magical.The town of Funchal is so laid back you just get carried away with it all,so many great restaunts,easy and extremely varied shopping great trips out,never stuck for something to do. Sietske's property is amazing,so much room,great sunbathing,all the equipment you could wish for if you decide to eat in,and great information from the owner.One thing is sure we will be back next year just as soon as we can book flights.See you then Sietske.

Lovely house in great area.

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean. An easy walk down to the Old Town and shopping districts - much harder walk back uphill but one bus brings you to the door and 3 more drop you just around the corner for a short downhill stroll back! Some dog noise overnight but it certainly did not stop me sleeping better than I have in years, and evenings on the balcony looking over the harbour with a glass of something were thoroughly enjoyed.

Sietske is exemplary in her communications and the information provided at the house was comprehensive. In Sietske's absence we were met at the house by her friend Pauline who was also very welcoming and helpful. We would be very glad to stay here againg when we next get over to Madeira.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this lovely review! We're very happy you enjoyed your time in Madeira and in Casa da Costa! That spot on the balcony is a favourite among our guests, great to enjoy a coffee in the morning, or relax with a little glass of Madeira wine or a cold beer at the of the day :-)

Schönes Haus und sehr nette Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist riesig (120 qm) und die Vermieter sind sehr nett. Nachdem uns der Vermieter vom Hafen gegen einen vernünftigen Preis abends abgeholt hat saßen wir noch gemütlich bei Kaffee und kalten Getränken noch mindestens 1 Std zusammen. Viele nützliche Tipps wo man preiswerter essen oder einkaufen kann haben wir an dem Abend erfahren. Ein Tipp von uns ist , besucht das Bistro ca. 150 mtr den Berg runter (sehr leckere Gemüsesuppe und andere Speisen!!

Vielen dank nochmal für alles!!

Clean and huge house with nice view

  • 4 of 5

It is a huge house that can accomodate even a big family too. It was clean and everything worked very well however don`t expect a fully refurbished, modern place. Most of the equipment was old-fashioned therefore it had a special time-back atmosphere.:)

But to be honest who cares about this when you have got such a lovely welcome from the owners, Sietske and Aurelio? They were always at our disposal and showed true care when they showed around Funchal and gave accurate guidance and tips about the island.

I can highly recommend this house to anyone who wants to stay in a cosy place where you can feel that you are at home.

Owner's Response: Dear Gergo and Kinga, Thank you for your review! It was really nice to meet both of you! Amazing how many walks you managed to do in your 10 days in Madeira, and even a day-trip by ferry to neighbouring Porto Santo island with its 9 km stretch of golden beach. Concerning the special time back atmosphere of Casa da Costa, which you mention in your review :) the antique style dark furniture that is used in the house is the kind that is found in traditional Madeiran homes. We hope you come back next Summer!

Sehr zufrieden

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schöne Unterkunft,

schon der Blick von der Terasse über die Stadt und den Hafen überzeugt.

Das Haus ist gut ausgestattet, sauber und eher großzügig.

Es liegt sehr verkehrsgünstig zur Stadt und zur Schnellstrasse, ist aber trotzdem sehr angenehm ruhig.

Besonders angenehm war auch die Freundlichkeit ud Hilfsbereitschaft der Vermieter Sietske und Aurelio.

Wir waren sehr zufrieden.

Great stay in Fuchal

  • 5 of 5

The house exceeded our expectations and had everything and more that was promised. The hosts graciously met us with drinks and cookies and made certain that we were settled. They even gave us a tour of the neighborhood. The house was clean, quiet, spacious, and comfortable. It had a view of the cable car and mountain as well as a spectacular view of the city and ocean from the garden. We had gated off street parking. The apartment was a short walk down to the commercial and tourist and restaurant center and on the bus route for non walkers. The access to the highway was quick and easy for touring and hiking the entire island.. A few moments away was a small bistro with drinks and good, inexpensive food. We would recommend this listing and would stay there again on return.
