Rented this house with our two children. The house its self was fantastic. It was so nice to stay in a traditional plantation home. The house was decorated beautifully with french doors in every room facing the sea. The house is located in ponta do sol, and where Funchal was often cloudy we would always find the sun waiting for us when we got home. The infinity pool was amazing and a favourite spot of mine was just resting on the pool wall looking out onto the great Atlantic sea. The gardens where wonderful full fruit tress and lush grass with levada running all through the property. The kids had a wonderful time playing in the garden that was all gated. We could walk down into town, but you have to climb those step all the way back up. My six year old could do it, so there is still hope for us. I loved reading the guest book and there was a wonderful artist who stayed and drew a picture of the house. It was just perfect.
