Guestbook comments from the manager

We have spent our last ten days exploring the island, sight-seeing and relaxing at the beach.

Your house helped to make it a special time we like to look back at.

The view from the balcony is gorgeous and we loved to sit outside and watch the sun go down over the glittering ocean in the evening.

Although we totally enjoyed our trips around the island, we always enjoyed coming back to your yellow house- whish become our temporal home as well.

Thank you for offering every help needed and for making these days a wonderful holiday!

Stunning property

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and well equipped house. Everything is spotlessly clean with lots of thoughtful touches, such as the very welcome local produce on arrival. We especially enjoyed sitting in the sunroom in the morning and early evening, to take advantage of the stunning view.The house is very quiet, with occasional very distant sounds from the town below. The weather was unusually wet, windy and foggy during our stay, but we were very warm and snug in the house regardless. Highly recommended and will be top of the list when we visit Madeira again.

Fantastic property in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Initially the drive up to the property was a bit scarey, but have driven all over the island we realise now how easy the drive was. The property has a excellent position, about 1000feet above see level, from the verandah you have a perfect view over what looks like a miniature model village of Arco Da Calheta. The property is lovely with everything you could want. Thanks to Rosa and family for a fabulous experience.

BEAUTIFUL House with AMAZING Views - The best!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a wonderful trip to Madeira Island. We had the privilege of staying in this home for 4 nights. (We would have stayed a full week but it was booked for part of the time we needed.) The house has EVERYTHING you need and more. It is located at the top of a hill, surrounded by other homes, but with a beautiful view. The closed in sun porch is amazing! We were able to watch the sunset each night. It was a chilly week but on the sun porch, it was nice and warm. For the meals when we didn't eat at a restaurant, we enjoyed eating them on the table on the sun porch. So lovely! The bedrooms are all large and beautiful. The bathrooms were large and have everything you need. Very clean, and warm colors all throughout the house. Rosa the owner lives right across the street so if you ever need anything, she is right there. She had left some nice little treats for us when we arrived and some things in the fridge to get us started which was so helpful and appreciated. We enjoyed looking down over the town/village and seeing the cars driving and hearing the church bells and other sounds and feeling like a "local". (The sounds were not too loud and were not bothersome - they were actually pleasant.) The house has an amazing viewpoint outside where you park your car. We sat there the last night after dark and watched the ocean and the lights on the hill. It was dreamy!!

About the location, we really enjoyed staying in Calheta. We had a rental car so it was easy to get to this town. There are so many beautiful places to visit on the North and West sides of the island and this location was very convenient for visiting those areas.

Rosa's English was so good, I would have assumed it was her first language but it wasn't. She was very helpful when we had questions about parking in the business area and about grocery stores etc.

I cannot say enough good about this rental property. I would highly recommend! Thank you, Rosa!

Lovely House wit Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a lovely and spacious house with everything you need for a relaxing holiday, we stayed for one week in early June but wish we had stayed longer. The friendly owner lives nearby and is there to help if required, she also provides a welcome gift pack which was well received. A perfect base to explore the island during the day and later sit on the terrace to enjoy the views with a glass of wine. Highly recommend.

Впечатление настолько сильное, что не описать словами. Дом, в котором живёшь, а не обитаешь. Красота каждого дня и момента в нём зашкаливает.

Неподалеку есть левады и сказочные пешеходные тропы.

Wonderful home, wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay. The house sits high on a ridge with wonderful views. The house is modern and spacious. 2 upstairs master suites each with its own full bathroom and ocean view balcony. 3rd bedroom is on 1st floor, smaller with a single bed. There is a full bath on the first floor. Spacious dining area and living room. Sun room with stunning views of the ocean and hillside. There is a casual. local restaurant a 5 minute walk up the road. Rosa is a wonderful and gracious hostess. She helped in so many ways, especially helping us with our search for people who might be related to our grandfather who was born on Madeira. We would definitely stay here again!
