3 bedroom in Calheta, stunning views, private heated pool | Casa Amaro Mar

Arco da Calheta, Portugal



The lovely Casa Amaro Mar is very comfortable, located in a tranquil area and provides beautiful sea-views from all areas.

The bright lounge is a place where you can relax after a day in the sunshine and meals can be taken in the adjoining dining area, or Al-Fresco by the swimming pool (optionally heated), where you have a covered built in barbecue.

From the carport, stairs lead down to the front door. On this floor are the three bedrooms (2 king doubles and one with two single beds) and the two bathrooms (one en-suite, the other a shared family bathroom). Stairs lead down to the open plan living space with those lovely sea-views, which opens to the south facing outdoor garden and pool deck with outdoor furniture, sunloungers and umbrella. The large kitchen is fully equipped and modern.

The good-sized heated (optionally) swimming pool is at the front edge of the garden and allows superb views of the sea and surrounding countryside. In a shaded area is a built-in Madeira barbecue and dining table and chairs. Behind the kitchen is the games room with ping pong table and darts.

    Understated luxury with amazing views

    There is no doubt that the description of the property on the website is accurate. The views are amazing, the villa beautifully appointed and surprisingly easy to find. There is a definite wow moment when you walk in. The villa was very clean and well presented with a stack of towels neatly laid out on every bed. We were greeted with friendly professionlism and our questions answered succinctly - even when it came to a late evening telephone call to find out how the hob worked! The welcome gift of bread, milk cheese and wine was greatly appreciated, although it would have been nice if there were some hand soap provided. The pool is beautifully clean and just big enough. There are ample sun beds provided. The kitchen is well laid out and of high quality with plenty of crockery, cutlery and glasses. Wi-fi is plenty fast enough and seems to work throughout the villa. The deck that surrounds the pool could do with a bit of attention however. It is somewhat bouncy underfoot and there was a broken slat when we were there. The village is the perfect place from which to explore this stunning island. Make sure you get a diesel car if you are hiring. The very steep hills can easily stump a small engined petrol car. The supermarket in Cahleta is an easy 10 minute drive away. It is surprisingly well-stocked for a small supermarket and open til 10 every day. All the staff I spoke to had some English. Remember to have change for parking. Only a couple of downsides. The steep side road up to the villa is pretty hairy to negotiate and could really do with a barrier. Satellite TV is provided but you should be aware that there are only a handful of English channels. There is a dvd player in the second reception room but no dvds to play on it. If you have kids, you might want to consider packing some. Double glazing would be a bonus too as the constant barking of dogs throughout the night really disturbed our sleep. Obviously this is not the fault of the owners and many people may not find it an issue, but it drove me crackers! All-in-all though, this is a tremendous place to stay and one to be recommended.

    All in all a great review - thank you. Seems as if you had a great time and enjoyed the house and the area.
    Casa Amaro Mar

    Casa Amaro Mar is a very nice and fresh holiday house. The beds are good and most of the things you need to make your food is there. There were sometimes not enough hot water for the shower. We thought that a car was necessary. Over all we liked the house and the sorrundings. The staff that we met were very nice and did everything they could to make our stay as pleasent as possible. We will absolutely visit Madeira again and rent from this Company. Family Lundin Gothenburg, Sweden

    Thank you very much for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We agree that to make the most of your holiday in Casa Amaro Mar, a hire car is required.
    Very comfortable House with fantastic view
    The house is fantastic. Very comfortable furnished. Very Space. Good service with a welcome package with coffee, milk, water, wine, cheese, toast and butter so that the next supermarkt visit can wait. Really can recommend a stay here. Thanks to Vanda for her assistance.

    This is our second time in Madeira booking through Our Madeira. Our Madeira make the whole experience easy and slick. The house is exactly as it looks in the web images, its really stunning. The view over the sea and hills are breath taking. Its a few minutes drive to the beach and supermarket and whilst here we explored most of the Island. Madeira is simply wonderful and we cannot wait to return. We did struggle a little with the beds, the matresses are incredibly hard and whilst that may suit some, we found them quite uncomfortable. We got around this by laying up the duvets on top to make them softer. As is normal in Madeira there are a lot of dogs which bark overnight, which seemed to be amplified as we were higher up. Whilst I love the different sounds of on holiday it didn't bother me at all but my husband was glad he had brought his ear plugs. This is a truly stunning place, packed with everything you need and in a great location. I would highly recommend this place and cant wait to return to Madeira again soon.

    Thank you

    A wonderful stay in beautiful Madeira. The location gave amazing views of the Atlantic and offered us the best sun spot the island could give. The house is very well appointed and which meant we had a relaxing stay. Thank you!

    We chose to move to another house nearby Calheta Charm also hosted by Our Madeira. You can judge quite accurately from the website descriptions what the houses are like, which is high standard. Arco da Calheta is a good place getting the better weather in Madeira, the setting is a bit suburban but quiet enough and you get great views of the hillside and sea. You can have confidence in Our Madeira who will do their best to give you a great holiday, we had a great week

    100% satisfied with everything, got just what we expected from the description, could not have been happier. The support was good before and during the stay, going over and above what was reasonable. Thanks

    Thank you very much. Glad everything was to your liking and we appreciate your taking the time to submit this super review.
    Toller Meerblick
    Schönes und geräumiges Haus in toller Lage mit einzigartigem Meerblick, sowohl vom Garten/Pool, als auch vom Wohnbereich und zwei der drei Schlafzimmer aus. Calheta mit dem Sandstrand ist nur 5 Autominuten entfernt. Und durch die vielen Tunnels sind sowohl Funchal, als auch Rabaçal und der Westen Madeiras in einer halben Stunde mit dem Auto erreichbar. Wir haben die Südwestküste ausgiebig erkundet und mehrere Wanderungen, insbesondere Levada-Wanderungen unternommen.

    Einfach wundervoll! Tolle Villa! Traumhafter Ausblick! Klasse Pool!
    Wir hatten einen wundervollen erholsamen Aufenthalt in der Pool-Villa in Calheta! Toller Pool, perfekt mit Kindern, traumhafter Ausblick, ruhige Gegend! Das Haus ließ keine Wünsche offen, Service Dame Wanda war für Rückfragen jederzeit ansprechbar und Mängel (Geschirrspüler funktionierte bei Ankunft nicht) wurden sofort behoben! Neuer Geschirrspüler innerhalb eines Tages am Wochenende! Dankeschön Wanda! Kommunikation mit Agentur immer freundlich und zeitnah, auch am Wochenende! Fragen zur Coronasituation wurden ausführlich beantwortet! Vielen Dank Linda und Norberta! Insgesamt alles super! Würden in der Villa auf jeden Fall nochmal Urlaub machen! Wir hatten einen wundervollen Aufenthalt!
