Fantastic private estate
The home is up in the mountains and feels very secluded and yet it is 10 minutes from the airport. It is exactly what we wanted. The grounds were beautiful, the home was quaint and comfortable. We loved everything about the home except the lack of insulation between the upstairs and downstairs. Any noise in the upstairs bedroom is amplified into the rooms below. That being said, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would rent the property again. The owner was very easy to work with!
Special location and beautiful vista
In our opinion the house shines for its view overlooking the eastern half-island of Madeira and the garden in front of the house. We liked the peacock in the garden that was quite social and came onto the patio whenever we were at home. Unfortunately, the peacock seems to like the vista from the patio as well and leaves the place in need of cleaning. The house itself is functional; dishes were a bit stained and kitchen equipment is sufficient but a bit dated. Sleeping on electronic blankets would not be our preference but can make sense during colder times of the year. The fireplace works great but glass door was cracked in places. The place is absolutely quiet and we can recommend without hesitation if luxury within the house is not your main interest.
Thanks for staying with us. The balcony patio is cleaned before each guest checks in and this is no exception before Ms. Bellwald arrived. However, daily cleaning is not included in the service package Ms. Bellwald purchased. If she needs the house to be cleaned daily, she should let us know.
