“Wonderful stay and spotless house”

What a lovely place among the banana trees and a minute's walk to the ocean. The photos don't do it justice. My husband and nine-month old daughter and I stayed for a week, and were very pleased to have found the place. The views are spectacular, and the apartment/house is spotless and well-equipped (including with a real baby cot and beautiful linens for baby and adults alike). Iva and Paul were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. There's a good mini mart and bakery in the town, along with a very good seaside restaurant. The beach in Calheta is good for kids and there's an excellent supermarket there. Nearby to walks, easy to get to other towns and into Funchal. Highly recommended!

Sunny House, Calheta - highly recommended!

Dear clients
thanks for the 5 out of 5 review. We are so happy that you would highly recommend Sunny House in Paul do Mar. Your review confirms what a special location the house is in in the National Park of Madeira a minute's walk to the ocean with spectacular views. Also, we are very happy that you found the special baby equipment which is included in the rate 5 out of 5 too.

As you wrote "There's a good mini mart and bakery in the town, along with a very good seaside restaurant." and an excellent larger supermarket not far away in Calheta town. Thanks for confirming that the white sand beaches about 10 minutes drive away is "good for kids". And for confirming that walks are nearby for those that want to explore the nature and that with the new roads it's "easy to get to other towns and into Funchal" the capital.

We hope that you return to Paul do Mar soon and stay at Sunny House again. Keep in touch and best wishes

“Comfortable living in a banana plantation next to the sea”
Reviewed 21 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011
2
people found this review helpful

Sunny House is in a fantastic location in the middle of a banana plantation about 50 yards from the sea. Inside it is very comfortably furnished, with 2 sizeable double bedrooms + a single. There's a kitchen, bathroom & a pleasant lounge on the ground floor: no views from this room, though the location means it's sheltered from the heat. But the real highlight is the terrace on the second floor, which has lovely views of the sea (spectacular sunsets every evening) & the cliffs behind.
Paul do Mar is in an awesome location: you drive through a 2.5 km tunnel & come out on a flat piece of land totally surrounded by cliffs & sea. It's peaceful & atmospheric - but also a good base for exploring the western half of the island. We loved walking along the sea wall, with waves crashing on our right & the cliffs on our left, to the friendly bar/restaurant half a mile away which did very reasonable meals.
We'd really recommend this place!

Dear Richard and Marjorie
thanks for staying at Sunny House Paul do Mar, recommending it to other travellers and an awesome review!

Your review confirms how special the location house is being in the Natural Park of Madeira on a flat piece of land 'a faja' between the Atlantic Ocean and mountains peaceful and with lovely views including the spectacular sunsets.

Also, as you wrote nothing is far away including a friendly bar/restaurant and with the walks in and out of the village and the new roads it’s “a good base for exploring the western half of the island”.

We hope that you return to Madeira soon and consider staying at Sunny House again!

Best wishes

thanks for the 5 out of 5 review. We are so happy that Sunny House "exceeded" your "expectations". Your review confirmed that the location is safe and welcoming and great for walks along the sunniest and hottest coast in Madeira and further into the Natural Park of Madeira with the PR19 walk to Prazeres and the ancient Ladeira walk connecting to the Levada Nova. And a location for some sea swimming.

We are happy too that you valued our advice on things to do and facilities in the area including the health spas and beauty treatment centres.

We hope that you return soon and consider staying at Sunny House again,
Paul and Iva

Sunny House was extremely clean, well-equipped, reasonably priced, and beautifully located in a charming town. It is a great base for hiking, swimming, and exploring the wonderful towns and cities in the area. This place if for those wanting to avoid hotels and mass tourism. Paul and Iva were very accommodating and helpful. Our entire family, including our 12 and 17 year old daughters, had an unforgettable experience, and hope to return.
