“Spacious charming home in a busy area”
Reviewed 22 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017
people found this review helpful

We enjoyed our weeks stay in this spacious home with 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and high ceilings. Lovely wood floors, vintage furniture and decor in the Madeiran style. The weather was chilly in February so space heaters were brought in. We had fun hitting the balls around the snooker table.
If you like the lido area and are traveling with children or a few couples then this house would be ideal. Located on Estrada Monumental which is fairly flat, but roads leading off it are very steep down to the promenade and concrete pool/beach area. Busy area with tons of hotels, apartments, restaurants, shops and tourists lining the roads, mostly older Germans and Brits.
The house and yard is surrounded by 8-10 storey hotels and apartment buildings, giving us the feeling of being on display. Located off the main road, behind a tourist apartment/mini market/cafe building. There was traffic noise from the front street and the street behind even with the shutters and windows closed. Very moldy smell in the house and cabinets, drawers and chests, and some mold in the upstairs bathroom. No oven, only a microwave and the dishwasher was broken. We were told not to use the fireplace. The bed was small, a double and quite firm. Very narrow bush lined driveway with gate leads to the house. It was great to have a washer, but no drying rack or clothesline. We enjoyed lunch on the outside terrace but the thorny vines need trimming. Even with some issues this house is a very good value.

“Perfect Madeiran home!”
Reviewed 4 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015
person found this review helpful

My husband and I had a very comfortable stay in this lovely villa, which was much bigger than we expected. The villa had been recently renovated, but retains traditional furniture and a spacious balcony for enjoying the sunshine! Facilities Even included a full size snooker table!

We received a very warm welcome on arrival from Sandra and she made sure we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.

Can't believe we had full use of a private house and grounds for the same price as a hotel room! This property is ideal for a family or 2 couples and is accessible via a private drive.

We didn't need to hire a car as taxis and buses are just a few minutes walk.

I definitely recommend this lovely holiday home!
