Description

SISTER PROPERTY DO VILLA DO MAR I, VILLA DO MAR II AND VILLA DO MAR III Located on a flat piece of land at the foot of the cliff in the sunny Calheta area, off the beaten track and accessed via a narrow steep driveway, close to its sister villas (Villa do Mar I, II and III), Villa do Mar IV has been finished and decorated beautifully throughout and makes the most of the lovely views over the surrounding banana tree plantations to the sea. Unusual and surprising features keep delighting you as you come across them. The lovely swimming pool with a wide shallow shelf where you can sit or lay or even place a sunbed and listen to the the water lapping around you; a great private nook overlooking the swimming pool with a shelf with mattress and sitting area, perfect for relaxing or reading; a striking private zen garden to the side where you can see a trickling waterfall incorporated into a working levada; a vine-covered veranda for relaxing in the evening and watching the sunset.

The vine covered veranda with outdoor dining table and relaxing chairs of Villa do Mar IV is reached via steps (either from the gate or from the double car garage). Steps from here lead to the swimming pool and sun deck located on the western side of the property. To the opposite side you will find the secluded zen garden, the perfect place to relax and contemplate.
This whole floor is occupied by the sitting area, that meanders through the open plan dining area and fully equipped kitchen and laundry (with built-in barbecue), all featuring large patio doors to make the most of those wonderful views of the sea and surrounding banana trees.
Both bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms are upstairs and benefit from these same views.

A lovely little beach hut is located right on the rocky beach 30 metres below, and shared by, the four Villas do Mar. A front terrace with sunbeds, outdoor shower and built-in barbecue and large table (seating for 16), is complemented with a kitchen (fridge, 4-ring hob) and toilet. Access is via a pathway with steps that leads from the level of the Villas do Mar down to the beach.
The many walks around Calheta and easy access to the plateau of Paul da Serra, with its many levada walks, makes this villa perfectly located for walking in Madeira and for enjoying a lovely holiday surrounded by the beautiful Madeira countryside.
All in all, a little corner of paradise.

    Reviews

    An absolutely gorgeous Villa. Very modern, clean and tidy. Excellent communication from the owners and support manager. Its very very quiet and relaxing and the private beach access and beach cabana were a real treat. This is the place for resting in nature, swimming and reading a book by the pool. You do need a car to do other things but there is a garage. There are lovely places to eat in the area or have a cocktail, its a very nice part of the island. I don't think this Villa is for small children due to steps and the way the pool is laid out - but we went as friends with no kids so no issue.

    Dear Lorna, Thank you for your time reviewing your stay at Villa do Mar IV. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in this idyllic location in the middle of a banana plantation. Please feel free to reach us if you need assistance for your future holidays in Madeira. Kind Regards, António

    Die Villa steht in einer traumhaften Lage. Es führt eine (steile) aber private Strasse zur Villa. Es ist noch schöner als auf den Bildern. Der Gastgeber Bruno ist sehr gut erreichbar und sehr hilfsbereit. Wir würden diese Villa auf jedem Fall weiter empfehlen und kommen sicher wieder zurück!

    Thank you for your kind words about our property!

    This AirBnb is a must-book! The location of the house was awesome; totally secluded and private with the most incredible view and Calheta and Funchal still easily accessible by a short car drive. The pool and outdoor areas were incredible to soak up the abundance of Madeira sunshine. We loved cooking dinner on the indoor wood-fire grill and the kitchen was perfectly equipped to live and cook within. Our host Bruno and housekeeper Rueben were great; answering all our questions promptly and keeping the pool clean and ready to use. Can't recommend this AirBnb enough; we secretly wish we lived here.

    Thank you!

    The AirBnb was just perfect. And whenever we had an issue Bruno or Ruben helped us immediately. We really want to come again.

    Villa do mare IV
    die Villa ist wundervoll eingerichtet, der Poolbereich ist ebenfalls wirklich schön und geschmackvoll gemacht, alle Zimmer verfügen über eine Klimaanlage, sind wundervoll eingerichtet und habe einen wahnsinnigen Ausblick. Die Villa selbst hat eine wirklich tolle Lage und das Grillhaus unten am Strand sollte man unbedingt einmal am Tag nutzen es ist herrlich und Ruben freut sich immer über Leute (wenn er da ist) ich würde immer wieder über oumadeira buchen, die sind wirklich toll vor ort und lösen alle Probleme schnell und wirklich super.

    Great Stay

    We enjoyed the house in and outside very much and had a great stay. I recommend taking a smaller car, because the road is extremely narrow. We come back for sure.

    Great location, very close to the ocean you can hear the waves.Great design

    Driving down the small road not for the fainthearted! Great to have heating ! Kitchen complements very basic and improvised. Open BBQ in kitchen/living kroom not ideal. The garden/pool manager Ruben, excelled in his work, and always helpfull.
