“Beautiful accommodation of exceptional quality.”
Reviewed 25 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is a very special villa. You will find yourself, as our party did, staying in comfortable and beautifully designed surroundings. A great deal of thought has been put into the villa, creating an exceptional holiday experience.
The accommodation interior is contemporary and stylish. There is plenty of space for dining or relaxing on sofas in the light and airy downstairs area. The equipment and facilities in the kitchen, utility room and en-suite bathrooms are of excellent quality. The bedrooms all have stunning, uninterrupted sea-views and harmonious colour schemes: most conducive to a restful night’s sleep! Outside, the colourful gardens are beautifully landscaped and border onto a large terrace area. We found the barbeque easy to use and well-stocked with necessary supplies. All of us think the adjacent, well-sized, heated infinity pool, which overlooks the sea, is a joy!
The whole establishment was immaculately presented and maintained this way throughout our stay. Some of the personal touches we appreciated were: the welcome basket of Madeiran produce on arrival, the numerous books and magazines available, the music system, the availability of reference information to make our stay at the villa easy, the provision of brochures for places of interest and activities on the island, a pair of binoculars and visits from Zulu, the labrador.
When advice or information were needed (this being our first visit to the villa and to Madeira) Amanda and the support team were exceptionally helpful. Meeting them added much to our happy holiday and we extend a great, big “thank you” to all.
Do not hesitate to book - you will be so glad you chose to stay here!

Liked best: The peaceful comfort in which I could watch the sea.
Liked least: Although I have the capability to be critical, on this occasion I do not find it necessary.

“Cannot recommend highly enough”
Reviewed 22 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Staying here really made our family holiday to Madeira. Our hosts and the extended team were fantastic and could not do enough to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The villa itself has real wow factor: we didn't think it was possible but it's even better than the pictures in real life, and it is extremely well equipped. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else if we were to return to Madeira, and hope to visit again one day.

Thank you again Amanda and team!
