The property is close to the sea, we loved watching the sun go down over the sea from our balcony. The property had everything that we needed as a base for our walking holiday. The house was very clean and set over three stories.The furniture and decor was basic but suitable for our needs. The location is good for access to the many walks in the northern part of The island. It is walking distance to the old fishing village and restaurants although we drove most times after a day walking!
We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.
quiet and off the beaten track; only 50 metres from the beach and bathing area in a former fishing village; cheap and good restarants in the vicinity; uncomplicated and helpful landlord
We are a “hiking-style” couple who love nature and know the island pretty well as travelling here every year (sometimes twice a year) and also pretty much familiar with rentals in Madeira–also at Paul do Mar form earlier. We are also mostly self-catering that is why a well-equipped house/apartment (kitchen) is essential for us. Here we ve found absolutely EVERYTHING we needed. Sunny Beach House is located at the lower (western) part of this village. It is built as a twin-fashion-house where we ve got the eastern section. A row of houses at the beach then comes banana plantations in front of the house and on both sides. Parking is at the beach ca 100 m down from the entrance door.There are 3 levels inside (kitchen+one bedroom and bathroom at the base-bedrooms and bathroom+ terrace at the middle and smaller living room+terrace at the top. ) As I ve mentioned we’d been living in several rental apartments/houses in Madeira but this one was really unique as very well equipped-meaning that we ve found all the things that we are using at home and as such the stay for us here was like “being at home” (for us)!
Quiet surroundings, birds around, the sound of the wind and waves–something a “must have” for us and ve got it here. Above all of this we had the opportunity to meet the very friendly owner Paul who has supplied us with a lot of useful information firstly regarding the house , then possible sites places-museums to visit and also information regarding facilities, wines ,gastronomy, shopping ,whale watching options in Madeira itself….etc
Provided us brochures-books-maps so very well equipped could start our stay in Madeira again! (even walking sticks for the 2 of us-as we ve forgotten to take ours with us this time!!
We ve never before met such a careful host as You are! You ve made our stay here even more pleasant as it uses to be …! We d definitely come back again –probably this year ! Best wishes for You and Iva and we d also wish You lots of satisfied and happy guests at this place ….as we are!!
Since a couple of years we were back again and Paul and Iva are so nice and helpful like the first time.
The house is fully equipped, the beds very good and the view from the terrace to the sea is beautiful.
Just returned from a 7 night stay at Sunny House East - simply wonderful! Extremely clean house with everything you need to make this a home from home - hair dryer, washing machine, clothes airer, kitchen hob, BBQ, games etc. Beautiful location overlooking banana fields out to sea and it was a joy to sit on the covered veranda each evening watching the sunset. Paul do Mar is a lovely fishing village and makes a superb base to explore the island by car. We also enjoyed walking from Sunny House along the sea front and through the old street to the little harbour and waterfall at the other end of the village - so peaceful, quaint and not touristy at all. The owners must be congratulated on their attention to detail and excellent customer service. From original enquiry to check out I felt that everything was handled quickly and professionally. When we met them, they shared a wealth of knowledge on the local area and gave us many ideas of the best places to visit which was appreciated. I also noticed that they run the house in an eco friendly manner and are very caring and compassionate towards the local wildlife which was wonderful to see. Thank you for a lovely holiday!
