“Disappointment after an otherwise satisfactory stay.”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Villa large and very well equipped. We were unlucky to have a wet and sometimes chilly stay in March.....always a risk of course! No heating system in the house (plug in radiators provided), so the gas fire was on for some time on some evenings of our nine day stay. On our return to uk we were charged £25 for 'excessive gas use' as it was reported that the gas bottle had been changed three times!! We were aware of one change after six days when we reported no gas. We would have prefered to have been told at the time. There followed a few exchange e-mails with the owner but the matter ended there.
The dismissive exchange was the disappointment, not the £25!

“Just great”
Reviewed 28 February 2012 for a stay in September 2011

We stayed for a bit over a week, it was a family trip (three generations); two of us had already been to Funchal.

The house is very nice, rooms are spacious, furniture and fittings done with very good taste and quality, the garden is absolutely lovely, and the view is to die for.
The welcome basket was a nice touch.
Kitchen is huge and well equipped, 3-4 people can easily cook at the same time without bumping into each other.

Just a few things which would have made it even better:
- a couple more deck chairs - just one for 6 is too short
- it would be nice to be able to eat on the enclosed veranda, at least for breakfast - 6 folding chairs and a folding table would be enough
- a few mosquito nets in the windows of the kitchen/living room/dining room/enclosed veranda area (bedrooms have them).

Joao, the local manager, is the friendliest and most helpful person you could think of.

I would definitely recommend for 4-6 people.
