“Brilliant place to enjoy Madeira”
Reviewed 24 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Celio is a great host and he's got a wonderful house. We arrived around 10 PM and he waited for us to hand us the keys and do a thorough tour of the house. He also gave us a lot of tips regarding what needs to be visited around. I really enjoyed the fact that there were plenty of guides and maps along his slides with the most important sights on the island.
Celio was in contact with us throughout the whole period making sure we're OK and checking if we needed anything.
The house is lovely, with a large garage where you can safely park your car (you don't have to keep it on the street). The living room is spacious with a large TV and a nice sound system. The kitchen is very well equipped and you have access to both a stunning terrace with a sea view (in the front) and the barbecue area in the back - where you have a second gas cooker.
There are also three bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms (even one with a Jacuzzi tub) so this is the ideal place to go either with friends, kids or just for a very romantic escape.
It's definitely one of the best places where you can enjoy Madeira at its fullest whilst feeling like you're at home.

“Fantastic rental”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

One of the best holiday rentals I have been in. Quality house from top to bottom. From the automatic gate and garage door, to the immaculate wooden floors, great kitchen and BBQ, tastefully decorated living room and bedrooms, to the balconies with fantastic views. Both Magarida (the key keeper) and Celio (the owner) very friendly and helpful. Ribiera Brava is a great place to stay, away from tourists, but close to the motorway so that most of the island can be reached in 20-40 mins. Recommend Muralha Grill (by the beach, on the way up the hill) and Dorisol Pousada dos Vinhaticos on the way to Encuameada.
Thanks for a great stay - see you again.

“Relaxing days”
Reviewed 17 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We enjoyed our stay in that lovely house. Beautiful equipped, located in a quiet rural area (but also farmers have to work during the day), surrounded by banana plants with a fantastic sea view. Very friendly neighbors – they welcome us like friends and not like tourists – thanks a lot to Margarita, her husband, her daughter … The WI-FI connection was very good. A small issue with the dish washer was fixed as soon as possible. We enjoyed to go swimming every afternoon at Ribeira Brava public gravel beach. Ribeira Brava is not far away (2,5 km) but it’s a very steep road – we went by car within a few minutes.
Ribera Brava is a very nice village and for me the best location to discover the island – short distances to all destinations. If we return to Madeira we will come back to Villamar.

“Lovely relaxing villa and location within minutes of supermarket and easy driving distance to funchal”
Reviewed 17 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Villamar is a modern, stylishly furnished villa. This was our second visit and we'd definitely return again. Weather over Xmas was excellent and the local festivities delightful.
I'd totally recommend this villa and a stay in madeira to anyone.

“Beautiful views”
Reviewed 30 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We found Villamar just right for our week in Madeira. The house is modern and well-appointed, with safe indoor parking for our rental car (Celio told us his trusted neighbour has a car rental service, which we would have been happy to use if we'd thought to ask!). We stayed as a pair, but there are certainly enough facilities for anything up to 6 adults, plus a baby. We did experience some noise from the construction work going on next door, but of course this won't be going on forever and doesn't reflect badly on the quality of the house. Anyway, the real star of the show is the huge sea view from the balconies - perfect for an early evening book and glass of wine, with lovely sunsets.

As a host, Celio was very helpful and offered to buy in some food so we had something for our first night, which was useful for us. He also provided clear directions, was there to greet us at the property and made it clear he was available to help if we needed anything - we didn't. Highly recommended overall.
