“Awesome wiew!”
Reviewed 10 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We stayed in the Viewpoint house during one week in February and had a fabulous time.

The house contains of a kitchen, with an attached outdoor dining area (very well covered from wind and rain), one bedroom, one bathroom with access from the bedroom and another bathroom with access from the patio. The bedroom can be quite cold during this time of the year, but as soon we mentioned to our host he showed up with a portable radiator and the problem was solved.

The patio is fantastic place to get some sun, chill, relax and just enjoy the spectacular view!

And the attached garden with herbs and vegetables is very nice, but can need a little bit more maintenance.

J Nelson Silva is the best host we met so far, he is very thoughtful and mend about his guests. He met us when arriving to the house and helped us with the luggage, and there were some wine, fruits and cakes waiting for us in the house. When leaving, he was also available and assisted in an excellent way.

To enjoy Calheta and its surroundings you definitely need a car.

We were not able to park the car at the parking area, instead we had our rental car parked on the street (without any problems) not too far away. But to be aware, there are quite many stairs to reach the house from the street.

If you want to stay close to the nature, with an exceptional view, hear the ocean and the wind we can definitely recommend the Viewpoint house in Lombo do Doutor!

“FANTASTIC”
Reviewed 12 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Last year we stayed in the cliffhouse which was great but as there was only the two of us we stayed in Viewpoint, Wemanaged to get a look around this property last year when we were here. This house has the best BBQ by far and the longest balcony with views of the ocean as far as you can see, great photos of the sunset and the moon at night over the bay.
NELSON was once again the perfect host with cake and wine waiting for our arrival . We were lucky enough to spend the day with him on our 3rd week stuffing ourselves with Espatadda, This has got to be tried if you are a steak lover.
We love this place and the new pool made it even better than last year.
Thank you Nelson and family, love to all and not forgetting JOAO at the local Cafe/Bar who does a wicked Picada (more steak).If you want the best weather the Island has to offer it is always in Calheta. Do not look for good weather on the North coast it is only about 40km away but what a difference those mountains make.
SEE YOU ALL AGAIN SOON.

“Panoramic sunset”
Reviewed 4 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

It was our first visit to Madeira and Viewpoint House exceeded our expectations.

The panoramic view from the sun terrace above Calheta is stunning and we spent many hours just relaxing and enjoying the view during the evening and watching the stars at night.

It's an ideal base to explore the beautiful Island of Madeira. Taking about 45 minutes to travel from the Airport to Viewport House. The main roads are very good and the tunnels straighten out the route.

You definitely need a hire car as there is so much to explore on the Island.

There is a good supermarket in Calheta and a Petrol Station at the end of the road leading up to the house.

I would point out that the house is reached by walking down quite a few steps, due to it's location on the cliff side, which may not be ideal for some people. It did keep us fit going back up them though :-)

Hopefully we'll be back to visit again in the future

Many thanks to João for renting us your beautiful holiday home :-)

Thank you for your visit!

“If you are not afraid of heights and want to escape then this is the place for you”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The owner has managed to develop this quaint two up, two down holiday home into a great little get away. Admittedly you will have to be good on your feet to get there, be able to manage many steps and travel with little luggage but you will be rewarded when you do. The 'Viewpoint' does exactly as is proclaimed in the title - the view over Calheta bay is idividual. The terrace overlooks the vegetation below and the sandy enclosure of the bay but you are not overlooked at all. There are subeds to relax on and if you are a little hot then the downstairs shower is perfect to cool down in. The kitchen has a fridge/frezzer, hob, microwave, toaster and microwave and an outside BBQ with fully operational sink units are there for those who wish to cook outside. The owner Mr Nelson will provide you with a key fob that will enable discount on items at the local supermarket so just stock up and chill out. A great little find for both relaxing or touring around the west side of the island. Also great for bird watching. Great supply of hot water in both the showers, lots of crockery and cooking pots/utensils, free wifi, tv and hifi sound system - the owner is lovely and will be there to meet and greet and even carry your luggage for you.

Thank you Ulrike and Roland for the kindness and detail of your comment.
It was a pleasure to welcome you to my house and Madeira Island.
This is indeed a special place, for those who seek peace and contact with nature; the sea, the beach, the sun, the luxuriant vegetation, the sound of the birds and the unforgettable sunsets.
For all this and for what only those who live this place can experience, I can say, it is good to be here.
Thank you once again Ulrike and Roland for coming to the island, living and feeling, a bit of my world.

Danke!
