About the property

Large balcony, terrace and very big glass windows to watch and enjoy all day sunshine and sunsets of sun go down over the sea. Sleeps 8 - 4 bedrooms. Our beautiful stone Villa 'Sunshine' is just 25 minutes drive from Funchal on excellent motorway - Via Rapida. Our friend and agent Ezekiel will show you where the house is and can arrange transport from the airport if you prefer. As you approach the property there is a gated area and an inside private car port. The road level accesses direct the ground floor into 2 bedrooms and the ground floor living, sitting area, kitchen, bathroom and pool, so you don't have to heave luggage up and down stairs. An internal and external (this one independent beside the house in front of the car port) staircases leads to the First floor living accommodation with double sitting areas, 2 bedroom (one En-Suite), balcony and big glass windows facing the fabulous ocean and mountain view..

The villa has a big space in the front enter and approached via the pool terrace, All this area a very nice place to be outdoors. On the this ground level the kitchen, main enter door, one bedroom, laundry room and living room opens out onto a covered patio with the pool. The pool is approx 5x8m and 1.5 m deep with steps to get in or out and an staircase in aluminium. There is a large tiled area round the pool. 1 loungers and a table with 4 chairs. Beside the pool there is a small garden and if you swim from the pool you can see the see as a Crystal infinity pool.

Funchal is the only airport on the island and it is approx. 45 minutes from the house. We recommend hiring a car at the airport but keep it small. Once off the main roads Madeira roads are narrow.

There are no natural sand golden beaches in Madeira but one has been created only 5 minutes drive away. The rocky beaches are great. The house is in the village of Arco da Calheta, only 25 minutes drive to Funchal and all it offers. It is a great location for walkers.

For snorkelling or scuba diving. The fish are wonderful and the waters clear.

Living rooms: They are 2 double living rooms; The ground floor living room has a very large refectory table and 8 chairs and 3 double sofas for 6 capacity. The first floor living area has a 3 sofas suite and table with 4 chairs. Satellite TV and DVD are installed and there are a few DVDs. Guests can also swap their books if they wish. As well there is large balcony. Cleaning/towels/linen/maid service: Each room has 2 complete sets of bed linen and bathroom towels. The house will be serviced weekly. Rubbish should be bagged and if you feel like a walk taken to the nearby disposal point. There are 2 pool towels per person.

Owner's Response: Dear Kestutis, We're sorry you did not enjoy your vacation. The pool was clean but as we had placed the products the water seemed murky. The house has direct access with car as seen, but it answered me that it was not a good conductor Regards, Ezekiel & Ana

Trés belle demeure avec vue magnifique sur la mer

  • 5 of 5

Très belle maison sur les hauteurs de CALETHA où l'on peut loger facilement 8 personnes voire plus .Très lumineuse avec ses baies vitrées jusque dans les chambres Vue sur mer sublime Facile de faire ses courses à Loreto (5mns en voiture) et " cantine " conviviale au Miradouro qui domine la vallée (3mns ) Belle piscine où il fait bon de se reposer après les randonnées . Il serait bien par contre de rajouter un peu de vaisselle

Nous avons été enchantés par cette location
