“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 18 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We were a couple in our 50s staying here. The accommodation was ideal.
Previous reviews and the description cover the key points and there is nothing we would not agree with in terms of its advantages as a location. There is now a microwave that would appear to be an oven and grill now although we only used the microwave part and there is a good 4 ring hob. The wonderful and consistent weather meant that we BBQ'd most nights and this was very convenient.

The restaurant up the road is great value. The supermarket about 300 metres away met all our day to day food needs and apart from at the butchers within everyone seemed to speak good English where ever we went on the island.

There is a fantastic balcony both by the pool and at the top of the steps next to our back door that meant it was a great place to sit for a bottle of wine in the evenings and we spent many nights just relaxing there looking across the town.

Luiz and Isabelle were the perfect hosts and provided a mass of information and guidance that made our stay even better!

If we go back to Madeira again this will definitely be our location of choice to stay in the Funchal area.

We spent a great week in this lovely cottage (we found out from Luiz it's actually a converted water tank!), Luiz made us feel very welcome from the beginning with a lovely glass of Maderia wine on the patio. It was a great base to explore Funchal and the surrounding areas, the No.17 bus stop is just around the corner, which takes you to the centre of Funchal in about 20mins. The cottage itself was very comfortable - it's one of 3 within the boundary of the property and the views overlooking the port are just stunning. Luiz stays in the main property with his family, so they are on hand in case of any issues but not intrusive in any way. There are a few bars, a restaurant, a baker and a small supermarket, with an ATM close by, in the immediate vicinity, so you have the option of just hanging around the area or hopping on the bus down to Funchal. The streets surrounding the property are quite narrow and steep in places, so be aware of this if you plan to hire a car - we didn't as it was so easy to use public transport. Luiz organised a taxi for us from and to the airport (30 euros each way), which was convenient for us as we arrived in the dark and had too much luggage to lug around on public transport but if you're travelling light, it would be very easy to catch the express bus from the airport to Funchal and the No.17 (Lombo Segundo) local bus from there (it's the last stop, opposite the church).

“Happy holiday home”
Reviewed 7 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This is a converted farmstead. The old house has been extended and provides the owners' home; a range of farm buildings has been converted to guest accommodation. Stylish presentation internally, each with its own outdoor sitting area (one has a roof terrace with sea and forest views) and basic facilities inside. There are shared barbecue area, pool and sun decks too and the site has levada on two sides. All within its own walled, well-kept garden so children cannot get out onto the road - they just need to be old enough to be safe near the pool.

The location is excellent: 10 mins ride from the centre of town at the end of the 17 bus route. Several other bus routes within a couple of blocks walk, including the 48 to Monte. A quiet suburb with its own facilities - cafe, bar, restaurant (excellent espetata, very friendly, multilingual staff, great views) and a supermercado within 10 mins walk. We tried them all. This is not tourist area, so a good place to practice your Portuguese and drink and dine with the locals.

Luis, Isabel and Vitoria are perfect hosts. Always friendly and helpful. An excellent, relaxing stay. Thank you!

“Beautiful view, great service”
Reviewed 19 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

It has been the first time that our family stayed in a rental house for a holiday. I was uncertain at the beginning ,however,the owners’` hospitality lifted my doubts. They made us felt so welcome. Isabel ordered a Taxi to pick us up from the airport. Luiz speaks good English, he provided us with the local map and bus timetable. We were even offered a bottle of Madeira wine!

The view is beautiful looking over from the house.The location is very convenient. Bus 17 is at round the corner of the house, it goes to Funchal centre regularly. It is walking distance to local bakery, restaurants , supermarkets, so that you can explore local culture easily.

The service was fantastic, we were welcome to use all the common area and facilities. The linen was changed during the week. The last day, we were allowed to stay until the taxi picking up us in the afternoon.

“If you are thinking about going to Maderia for a holiday?”
Reviewed 19 March 2016 for a stay in January 2016

The must place to stay is with Luiz and Isabel at the Casa do Poco in Sae Roque
A fabulous setting with panoramic views over Funchal and wonderful hospitality from the owners. We stayed for over five weeks and cannot recommend this place too highly.
Hope to return again and again

“Lovely Apartment”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

Lovely apartment, which is one of two situated behind the main house.
Luiz and Isabel were very welcoming. We were provided with maps, bus timetables, and some advice on the places that we might like to visit, as well as a lovely welcoming glass of Madeira. The apartment was spotless and the linen was changed during the week.
The bus service was a few yards away and went to the centre of Funchal, about 15 minutes.
We found a nice little local coffee shop and bakers, and went there most mornings for coffee and cakes before venturing out for the day.
My only comment would be that the traffic could be noisy on occasions, but all together a really lovely place to be.
