Calheta

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us arrived to a fine welcome with barbeque and wine which I had pre arranged with the Owner (Charlie). The accommodation was well designed, comfortable and clean.

We had a great holiday the highlight of which being the landing of a 70lb game fish on Charlie's boat (!)

The "den" by the pool is perect for bbq's and chilling out watching the sunset over this beautiful island.

Would we come back?. In an instant.

Charlie saved our holiday!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely man and superb villa! After our cruise ship "Black Watch" caught fire in the mid atlantic en-route from The Azores to Madeira we found ourselves stranded in Funchal, with no power on board ship, faced with our cruise holiday being curtailed and being flown home. We were a family of 9, having a really great time up until the fire, only 1 week into our 2 week holiday, and we didn't want our holiday to end so soon. I Googled for a 5-bed villa in Madeira and this is how I found Charlie and his lovely holiday villa. It was perfect for us & available for the few days we needed it. Unable to book online, I found Charlie's phone number, explained our situation and couldn't have hoped for a more helpful person on the other end of the phone! Not only did he arrange to get the villa ready that afternoon for us, he sent a minibus to meet us at the port and take us to a supermarket for valuable supplies on the way to the villa, and when we arrived he even lit the BBQ for us! The villa was perfect for our group, ages ranged from 23 to 61 and we all enjoyed the facilities; especially the pool, feature BBQ, and the well equipped kitchen area in the cabin by the pool with 2 fridges (1 for beers, the other for food! :-). Under unexpected circumstances we found Charlie's villa, but we would definitely return! Thank you Charlie!

Chill Out in Madeira

  • 4 of 5

5 of us arrived at this quirky but fantastic villa. The property was enormous, would easily sleep up to 10 and the owner and his dog so friendly. If you want a holiday away from it all, then this is the place to come. Charlie (the owner, not the dog) can organise your group fishing trips or sunset cruises, tailor made. The property was clean and well furnished. As it is away from it all, you would be wise to hire a car if you want to visit the rest of the island. A true chill out place.

Thank you Charlie for a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just had a 10 night stay at this great villa, would definitely go back again. We were 3 families with teenage children and had enough space for us all. The garden and pool were very relaxing and well used. We particularly liked the club house and cooking area, as all of us love cooking and made the most of the excellent fresh fish and meat available. Although it is only a 5 min walk to the local shop , you really need a car to make the most of the places to see in Madeira. Charlie was very helpful but never intruded on our stay at his beautiful house. Thank you once again Charlie hope to return one day.

Fishing in Madeira

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I decided to take my father 'Big Game' fishing in Madeira. This was supposed to be a 'one off ' experience but the whole experience, from the fantastic accommodation to the fishing trip itself, which was all provided by the owner Charlie, couldn't have been any better. Fantastic trip with perfect accommodation, can't be rated high enough. We will definitely be going back again.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Amazingly located, close to the beach, this villa is ideal for a nice and relaxing holiday!

3 of us stayed over 2 weeks in September...

The villa is clean, spacious, the pool is lovely, it's makes you want to stay in, sunbathing and relaxing, which is exactly the purpose of holidays anyway!

Close to the beach and local amenities, the villa also has an outstanding view, both to the sea and the mountains.

Would definitely recommend!
