“Dirty uncomfortable house.”
Reviewed 7 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

House looks good and in a not too bad location but that's all the good things i can say. The house was dirty and hadn't been cleaned. Kitchen worktops are black but you don't expect the cloth when you wipe them down to be black as well. Cockroaches and resident mouse came out for breakfast every day. Cupboard under sink mouse's favourite place as you can tell by the droppings. No grill as mentioned in the detsild or garden- 3 pots in front of bottom balcony does not constitute a garden. Where were the fluffy towels and nice bed linen? Just a miss mash and the towels smelt horrible. Stairs to first floor narrow and steep. No cupboard space in the first floor bedroom. Beds uncomfortable. Shower for this room was disgusting and had to be cleaned before it could be used. Shower room had snorkeling gear which made room smell. No instructions left for washing machine. Balcony flooded every time it rains as floor slopes in wrong direction to drain. Hard flannelette sheets which were stained for bedding! Stairs to upper bedroom wider so not too bad. Bed also uncomfortable. Bedding was either dark brown or dark green so couldn't see any dirty marks. There was a wardrobe and bedside cabinets we could use. Again shower room not the cleanest. Balcony had street light to the side so it was light in the room all night. No air conditioning in the house anywhere except for fans which had to whirr away to keep rooms cool. Chairs in kitchen have dirty yellow cushions and the cushions on the teak patio chairs have seen better days. We hired a car and were out every day and saw the island. Can't complain there but house is something else needs to be fumigated and made comfortable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accomodation is to a high standard and conveniently located with fantastic sea views. There are places to eat in easy walking distance with a small shop and bank for the basics. Locals are friendly and the only noise at night is the sound of the sea breaking on the rocks. We were impressed by the local agent who responded very promptly and efficiently when we had a minor issue with the water supply.

“Lovely beachfront location”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Really enjoyed staying here, great location close to a few local bars and restaurants. House was really clean and well presented, comfy beds and all the cooking stuff you would need although we ate out mostly. Loved being so close to the beach but having the option of the balcony too. Would definitely stay here again!

“Fantastic View”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 for a stay in June 2013

A four day stay was not enough. The house overlooks the harbour and has open views around the bay and beyond. We went walking (4 adults) each day, loads of variety of walks to choose from - easy to hard. Back at the house, we enjoyed chilling out on the balcony - great having balconies on each floor or eating in the local restaurants. If you enjoy walking or sightseeing then I would recommend staying at this harbour home. It is a wonderful house, spotless and in an enviable position over the bay

This was our second time in Maderia. House is situated less than an hours drive from the airport - easy to find, parking available just in front of house. The house was more spacious than web pictures suggest, great having balconies on all floors. The view across the harbour is fantastic, great just chilling out at night on the balcony having a BBQ and a beer/wine and watching the activity around the harbour. During our stay here we had excellent weather, we went for a lot of levada walks from the house and completed the steep walk up the hill immediately behind the house - great that there is a hotel at top - thoroughly recommend lunch/beer before would head home, there is a circular route back as well. Overall we had a brilliant time and will most definately be returning

Liked best: Location, able to just sit and look out to sea and look at the occasional activity around the harbour.
Liked least: Good walks from the village - could walk to the levada walks rather than drive and find a place to park.
