Casa da Rainha, near Calheta. 15/12/15 to 5/1/16

  • 4 of 5

A nice, clean, house with a good outlook and good sun exposure, in a convenient location for exploring the beautiful exotic island of Madeira. I think it is about 600 metres above sea-level. The owners are very friendly and speak English and other languages. It is equipped with all one might ever want, but it is marred a little by a noisy thin floor overhead, creaky beds and a hot-water system that needs upgrading. There is only one indoor toilet/shower-room (we did not use the outdoor one, but it might be useful in the summer). It overlooks the main road nearby and is adjacent to a fairly busy local road. There is a supermarket not far away, a car is essential.

I recommend highly this property for people who prefer the country to the city.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind review. We would only like to clarify that the wooden floor is a particularity of the traditional houses in Madeira and even though this house was completely refurbished, we kept its originality as much as possible. We do hope to have you back again in our property.Madeira has always new beauties to discover!

Ein Haus mit gemütlicher Atmosphäre und schönem Außenbereich

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns als Gast in diesem sehr schönen, rundum liebevoll, mit allem Notwendigen eingerichteten Haus, in guter Lage, bestens aufgehoben gefühlt!

Einzig in der Küche und im Bad wünschten wir uns helleres Licht.

Great family holiday in beautiful Casa da Rainha

  • 5 of 5

We had absolutely lovely vacations with our 14-months-old daughter on Madeira in the beautiful Casa da Rainha. We spent nearly 3 weeks in February in this great house in Calheta. Located close to the city Center with shopping possibilities of Calheta, Casa da Rainha is just a 5 minutes drive up the mountains, the beautiful sand beach of Calheta again is only a 5 minute drive away.

The house itself is very cosy and has got 4 beautiful teraces, so you can enjoy the sun at every moment of the day - and you get to see the sun quite often - even if the weather forecast is bad and most of the island is covered in clouds, Calheta obviously is quite a sunny spot! It is very quiet up there, and there is nothing like enjoying the sun set with a glass of wine on one of the teraces. The rooms are tidy, clean and comfortable. The fire place makes the living room very cosy when it is getting colder in the evenings and provides enough warmth for the ground floor; in the rooms in the first floor there are electric heatings, so we had no problems at all to keep it warm enough for our little daughter.

The kitchen is very well equipped and so are the bathrooms.

Mrs. and Mr. Goncalves were very friendly and helpful, and we were welcomed by a basket of fresh fruits and great Portuguese wine. Also, the directions from the Airport were very detailed and we had no problems finding the house. We would definitely recommend getting a rental car, because Calheta is quite a good spot for day trips to the southern coast, the mountains or even the northern coast.

All in all, we had a wonderful time in Casa da Rainha and would strongly recommend this house to everyone who wants to spend relaxed vacations on this beautiful Island!!!

Haus der Königin Cassa da Rainha

  • 3 of 5

Casa da Rainha ist ein gemütliches Häuschen. Wir waren zu Viert und uns war die Küche sowie das Wohnzimmer zu klein. Natürlich ist dies auch Wetter abhängig. Wir hatten viel Regen und konnten darum die wunderschöne Terrasse und den Pool zu wenig nützen. Die Ausstattung ist gut durchdacht und es hat alles was man braucht. Wir haben den Aufenthalt schön gefunden.

Owner's Response: Mrs. Pfirter, Regreting the bad weather conditions of your stay in Madeira, that didn't allow you to enjoy the external areas of the Casa da Rainha B, I inform you there was a mistake because your review was placed in the advertissmente of the other house. Indeed the pool house is smaller, but its dimensions are mentionned in the advertisement and till now, all the reviews are of 5 stars. People usually know they are renting a small but very cosy and well equiped house. Thank you!
