We loved the location and the view. The owner was great to work with and very accommodating. Madeira has so much to offer and we took full advantage of it. It was a little cool when we were there by our standards. It would have been nice if there was heat in the apartment, but otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed it! Highly recommend.
Beautiful view from balcony
Well appointed appartment and helpful hosts. The fruit and wine were very welcome on arrival.
Thank you Victoria, we are glad you both enjoyed your time at Casa Serena

Immaculate apartment with gorgeous views
We stayed for a week in July 2017 immediately following a week in Funchal. Brian and Catherine, the owners, live at the property and Brian met us when we arrived to show us round the bottom flat. He was very welcoming and informative about the accommodation and the area. There was a bowl of fruit and a bottle of wine waiting for us. We met Catherine later and she was also very friendly and helpful. The flat is very spacious, modern and clean. The balcony is large (bigger than the 2 flats above) and looks down over local houses and crops and also out to sea. It is quite high up, so the views are lovely. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the lights go on in the evenings.
The apartment has masses of storage and all you need to do your own catering. There is a washing machine in an outhouse and a drying rack. Our towels were changed mid-week. There aren't many restaurants within walking distance and you do need a car to get around. You can park on the road outside the house which is fairly quiet. You don't need to drive far to get to stunning views and high mountains. We loved the levada walks and the gardens. There is a supermarket and pharmacy in Calheta, about 10 minutes in the car, and a small fruit and veg shop, cafe and post office in Arco.
We loved this place and would love to return someday.
Hi Paul & Jo,

Wonderful Apartment with a magnificent sea view
Beautiful flat, very spacious and very comfortable- a real home from home. Catherine, the landlady is a very friendly and helpful person. There are lots of shops, restaurants and a great beach nearby as well as easy access to Funchal and roads to all parts of the island. However the highlight of our holiday must be sitting on the balcony after a relaxing day watching the sun go down with a glass of Madeira.
Many thanks guy`s glad to hear you had such a great time at Casa Serena.
This helps our future guests, book with confidence.
Look forward to your return
Catherine & Brian
The most spectacular apartment we've ever stayed
Amazing! Very spacious apartment with all facilities. Large kitchen/diner, bedroom we want to transport home! Views from the wide balcony are stunning - ocean to the right, mountains to the left - sunrise and sunset are spectacular.
Brian and Catherine are very friendly, helpful and gave us plenty of tips on what to see,
where to go.
Centrally placed for the sandy beaches at Calheta and Madalena do Mar and levada walks in the mountains.
We couldn't recommend a stay at Casa Serena more highly and if Trip Advisor would allow, this would be a 6 star property!
Hi Chris,Thank you so much, we are please that you enjoyed your stay at Casa Serena.

We are always trying to improve,so six stars I will take any day
