Featured in a corner is a large flat screen TV with cable channels, surround sound system and DVD. ...Located overlooking Funchal, yet within easy walking distance of the town centre, in an upmarket residential area, Villa Luzia has superb uninterrupted views of the town, hills and sea and is probably one of the very best on the island.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Certainly has the WOW factor
WOW Villa Luzia is absolutely FABULOUS and, as it says in the heading, ‘The Height of Luxury’ We stayed as a family of 3 generations and loved that there was plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the beautiful lounge, gardens and terrace. We all, especially the kids, loved the games room and indoor pool. There is everything you could possibly need to self cater, which we made the most of. Everyone loved the Carpe Diem beds, too as it was like sleeping on a cloud. Just 15 minutes walk downhill to the centre of Funchal (taxi back ;) although there are buses too, but we never got the timing right! Perfect house for a family or group get together, you cannot fail to be impressed.

Absolutely Fantastic
Whatever you do make sure you pick this stunning villa. We loved it. Spotlessly clean. We can't wait to go back. There was everything there that you needed or wanted. Lovely welcome pack too. Plenty of room for eight of us and still space to chill on our own. Very safe and secure too.

Beautiful Villa, Large, Comfortable and Well Equipped
We stayed in Villa Luzia for a week in January. It is a beautiful villa, large, comfortable and well equipped. The private indoor pool is amazing and also the very large games room with table tennis, pool and table football. For a family group with mixed ages, everyone was happy! Plenty of secure parking space and lovely grounds and patio looking out towards the sea. We tended to take the car most places but, if you are fit, you can walk down to the shops/sea/cable car and back. We would recommend this villa.

Just Wow
The villa is just beautiful, the pool, the views, the space…..all just fantastic. We went as a group of 8 (2 families) loads of room for everyone. The games room downstairs is huge and well equipped, we had great fun playing pool, table tennis etc. The team at Our Madeira were great, sorted out transfers (very reasonably priced), made some great restaurant recommendations, and we’re always quick to respond to any questions. Wound definitely recommend both the villa and Our Madeira as a booking agent

The height of opulence!
Oh my goodness, where does one start? This villa is truly exceptional and caters for every possible need. Suitable for a large family gathering, one could never be bored, given the large games room and indoor swimming pool. Bathed in sunshine most of the day, we spent almost the whole time outdoors and ate outside on the days that we didn't go to a restaurant. Very clean and comfortable throughout; convenient for the centre of Funchal (an easy stroll downhill) and taxi back, for all of €6. For anyone who doesn't know Madeira - go! There is so much to do and unbelievable value for money. We hope to return to Villa Luzia.

Outrageous luxury and location
Its difficult not exaggerate the superlatives here. The house offers beautifully decorated spaces for anything from a relaxed pool party to a formal evening. Very private suites/bedrooms with the best beds imaginable beds, and private balconies. Stunning views of the bay of Funchal from floor level and all bedrooms. Huge games room with billiards, table tennis, etc. One of the few indoor pools of Madeira with direct underground access from the main house, allowing comfortable usage year-round. Walking distance from the center, and a good distance from the busy tourist areas.

as luxurious as advertised with everything we needed
a stunning villa with spectacular views over the town and harbour that had every facility you could need.The pool house being the standout feature .A pity there were no shops near but the town main town is only 15 mins walk away and a 6 euro taxi fide will get you and your shopping back up the steep hill.The bus stop is only a few steps away and the bus ride to the top is an experience on its own. The Monte palace gardens are not to be missed or sitting in a harbour side bar to watch a cruise ship dock. For the more adventurous there are great levada walks and trips through the hills to the north of the island. Maybe a little too well furnished for any but the very best behaved children to be let loose in.

Perfect place, for perfect vacation
I spent 7 nights in this amasing place with my relatives. This was the best place I have ever been-the location, interior, the garden, the pool and etc. Everything was perfect.
