Superb 5-bed in Calheta, pool, gym, billiards, seaview | Casa da Rosalina

Calheta, Portugal


This beautiful contemporary 5-bedroom property, located in the sunny hills of Calheta, offers everything you need to be the perfect holiday villa in Madeira - views of the sea and the surrounding countryside, a large and spacious outdoor space, a billiards/games room and a rooftop gym! It is additionally only a short walk away from a good selection of facilities.

Refurbished and extended from an old farmhouse cottage, the large solarium, swimming pool and garden now occupy what was the agricultural land in front of the villa. On one side of the solarium is the large covered barbecue area (with built-in barbecue and outdoor dining facilities). Next to this is the pool shower-room and toilet, and the billiard and games room (with PlayStation and table games).

As you enter the villa, the hall leads to the stairs to the first floor and to the open-plan living area. The front lounge/dining benefits from the great views and opens to the solarium. The modern, contemporary open-plan kitchen kitchen with central island and downstairs guest toilet occupy the older part of the house. Upstairs there are air-conditioned 4 bedrooms, two with double beds and en-suite shower-room and shared balcony, and two with two single beds each that share a family shower room. In the annexe, above the billiards room, there is a self-contained 5th bedroom with en-suite shower room.

At the rear, there is a large car-park (enough for 4 cars). The whole villa is walled, so safe for children.

Some seven hundred kilometres west of the African coast, Madeira is a stunning mountainous emerald island, lapped by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. The first island to be discovered by the Portuguese navigators in 1419, Madeira became an important resting place on the long trip to the new world. From these humble beginnings, the holiday trade was formed and this spectacular island, which used to be the favourite place of the rich and famous, is now the preferred choice of all sorts of visitors, from those seeking year-round warm temperatures to nature lovers and sightseers, sports and active enthusiasts of all ages. Culture, history, stunning nature, a myriad of sea and land activities, added to a great foodie scene means Madeira has something for everyone. No matter where you go on the island you are rewarded by fabulous scenery, tiny villages and friendly people. With a population of over 100,000, Funchal is not only the capital, but also the 'heart' of Madeira and home to many of the islanders. This makes it a busy, chic, cosmopolitan and fun city, full of shops, shopping centres, bars, cafés and a great variety of restaurants and entertainment; a vibrant, cosmopolitan town where historic splendour and breath-taking natural beauty combine with a thoroughly modern atmosphere.

    Wir waren gemeinsam als 6 Erwachsene und zwei Kindern vor Ort. In der Unterkunft befinden sich einige Spielzeuge und ein gut ausgestatteter Fitnessraum. Die Unterkunft ist in einer ruhigen Gegend gelegen. Ein Auto ist aufgrund der höheren Lage durchaus zu empfehlen. Die Kommunikation mit dem Gastgeber lief einwandfrei und alle Fragen wurden zeitnah beantwortet. In der Küche sind alle notwendigen Gewürze und die Utensilien zum Kochen vorhanden.

    Wonderful villa - the photos don't do the property justice! It was an ideal setting for our family holiday travelling with two young children and three grandparents. The kitchen included outdoor barbecue area was very well-equipped, and the villa had all the accessories we needed for the kids (travel cots, high chairs, baby bath and decent selection of toys). The villa is a located on a steep hill in the hills above Calheta and is a 7-10 min moderately strenuous walk from the local village, so a car (or reliance on taxis) is essential.

Sal was so amazing as our contact. Great pool,outdoor area, large villa for all 6 of us to stay in. Highly recommend! Exactly as you see on the photos too. Breathtaking views, amazing sunrises and sunsets to watch each day. Locals were all friendly and felt very safe too.

    Amazing villa and great value. Plenty of space with a heated pool, bbq, gym and games room and a great location. Couldn't ask for more! Mid week cleaning was good and the host and service throughout can't be faulted. Thank you

    Superbly appointed comfortable accommodation

    Stayed with our sons 4 and 2 during the October half term just before the second UK national lockdown. Villa Rosalina is a large 4/5 bed Villa (they locked the 5th annexe bedroom when we stayed) located I'd say a 5-10 minute drive from the main resort area of Calheta. It's marble type floors and luxuriously appointed high spec bathrooms and kitchen help make this accommodation a very comfortable experience for anyone who appreciates quality. We stayed in October when things were getting cooler but it was still nice to have air conditioning units in each bedroom. Our 2 year olds cot was all ready and made for him when we arrived late in the evening which was a relief with young children. Outside there's a medium sized swimming pool, fine for smaller groups, which we paid an extra €200 to have heated to 26 degrees which for us was worth it. There's a good outdoor bbq you can use too which we cooked some steak over one night. It's quite handy having a decent well stocked small supermarket a 5 minute walk away. Our boys enjoyed playing with the toys in the separate games room and I enjoyed the pool table with a couple of glasses of wine! Everything very clean and COVID conscious throughout the Villa. It's a gated Villa with room enough to comfortably park I'd say 4 vehicles and we had no issues with our hire car (use Williams car rental they were excellent) getting in. There's a couple of cafes within walking distance but you would really need a car to get about and enjoy Calheta - especially if your not good with the steep hills which Madeira is famous for. My only real comment for improvement, as I mentioned to the host from 'Our Madeira' as we checked out, is the lack of any child safety gates or barriers. It's a 3 storey house with hard flooring and steep steps leading to the car parking area. We kept an eye on the kids but it would have made the visit even more relaxing just to have a couple of child gates handy. Again not a criticism we still had a superb time. I wouldn't have thought to visit Madeira before COVID and travel corridors but we had a fabulous time and would thoroughly recommend Casa da Rosalina.

    Casa da Rosalina, Calheta
    Wir haben den Aufenthalt im Casa da Rosalina sehr genossen. Das Haus ist sehr komfortabel und traumhaft in den Bergen inmitten von den Häusern der Einheimischen belegen. Diese waren immer sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Zu empfehlen ist ein Mietwagen, weil man fußläufig in der Umgebung nicht viel erreichen kann. Das Inserat hat vom Haus nicht zu viel versprochen, alles ist neu und sauber. Wir würden es jederzeit wieder buchen. Die Kommunikation mit der Agentur hat prima geklappt, jederzeit wurden unsere Fragen hilfreich und schnell beantwortet. Alles in allem ein ganz toller Urlaub auf Madeira und aufgrund der aktuellen Situation gar nicht überlaufen. Für uns war das sehr vorteilhaft

    Nice relaxing stay
    Property is modern and high spec, overlooking a nice valley and the ocean. You get the sun for the majority of the day which is a bonus as other Calheta properties we have stayed at before suffer from either morning or evening shade due to the valleys. It has shops and various cafe/bars within walking distance. The property managers were very helpful throughout given all the issue we had regarding flight cancelations and date changes. Because of initial quarantine on arrival whilst waiting for covid test results they went shopping for us and got us some essentials to tie us over for the first 24 hours which was appreciated, they even came round at 21:30 on a Saturday evening after the trip switch (hidden in a locked cupboard) tripped for the air-conditioning during a thunderstorm, I said i was happy to wait until the Sunday morning but they are very proactive if there are any issues. Internet speed is very good +60mbps. Gym is well equipped, shame it doesn't have air conditioning considering it is so exposed to the sun. The only things i would comment on would be 1) The pool is very shallow at one end and an odd shape meaning that you can't do any exercise swimming but its fine for relaxing and would be great for those with young children given how shallow it is at the one end. The cover is a pain to put on and remove everyday given its odd shape. The listed sizes are not correct, it should be more like 60cm-140cm depth 2) Watch your head when cooking on the hob, the cooker hood on the island is so low that anyone over about 5'6" will hit their head on it when trying to check/stir your food in the pans, it got me and my partner many times during our stay! 3) Listing says PS4 in games room when infact it is a PS3 so if you bring PS4 games with you, you will be disappointed. We never usually return to the same property twice as we don't find the second time is ever the same experience however if we did we would happily return to this one.

    1- excellente localisation : à 300 m d'un petit supermarché très bien fourni (incluant coin boucherie et boulangerie), non loin d'une pharmacie, d'une banque, d'une station service. Très belle vue sur la mer de la terrasse, Bon point de départ de différente ballade, la maison est dans une petite rue calme. 2- maison moderne, nous avons particulièrement apprécié le coin billard et la salle de musculation. Piscine bien entretenue. 3- coin cuisine d'été sympa avec un grand barbecue 4-beaucoup de salle de bain, y compris une proche de la piscine 5-quand nous sommes arrivés il y avait tout ce qu'il fallait pour le premier petit déjeuner : confiture, pain, café, gateau et biscuit de madère. C'était appréciable

    Schitterend gelegen moderne ruime villa. De host (Isabel) stond klaar om uitleg te geven en de sleutels te overhandigen. Er stond bij wijze van welkom vers brood en drinken klaar zodat er niet direct boodschappen gedaan moesten. Villa was zeer schoon, goede WIFI overal, moderne binnenkeuken met alle apparatuur.

    This house is incredible, every bit as good as it looks in the pictures. We were 9 people (3 generations of family) and stayed for a week. There was plenty of room for sleeping, grilling, big family dinners on the deck. Host was very friendly and responsive to all questions. This was one of my favorite Airbnb experiences. Definitely recommend.

    Simply stunning villa and location

    We stayed here end of May, and can not fault anything about this villa. Wonderful welcome on arrival, they had also arranged car hire for us which was so easy on arrival at the airport. The villa has been restored to an excellent standard throughout, our kids loved the pool and pool table. Amazing sitting outside in the evening as the sun sets with a view to die for. Oh and you have to get steak from the shop at the bottom of the hill and cook them on the BBQ. We will be back next year . Thank you for all your help and suggestions for our first time in Madeira. We were a family of 5, children 10, 14. & 16 and we also took my in-laws overs.

    Nice location: nice view

    . Nice location: nice view, 5 minutes drive to best good beach (15 minutes walk), close to small supermarket, but you can buy everything there, close to good hiking trails. 2. Modern house - newly renovated house with everything you need. Good to have separate bathrooms for all family members :-). 3. Fast reaction on any challenges: we had problem with shower, which was replaced immediately. 4. Cool playroom: pool table, which we were spending every evening with :-) 5. Hated pool. Even if it is +20 outside, it can be +28 in a pool. Kids were happy. 6. Small nice garden, where you can pick up some

    A great review and very useful for future guests, as this is a brand new rental for 2019, so thank you for your perfect rating. Comment about the pillows noted.
    Perfect family friendly villa

    This was our first trip to Madeira and we could not have been more happy with Casa da Rosalina as a choice - the location is great for exploring the island, located in a quiet little village 5 minutes drive above Calheta beach. It is a short walk to the local supermarket. The villa itself is stunning - brand new, beautifully designed and incredibly well equipped for a rental villa. The pool and outdoor area is beautiful, we ended up making BBQs here watching the Sunset almost every night. The view from the gym is unbeatable and the games room complete with pool table and playstation is a fantastic addition for older kids and adults alike in the evening or during the occasional rain shower. The history of the villa itself makes it all the more magical. Isobel was a wonderful host and could not have been more helpful during our stay. We would definitely recommend Casa da Rosalina to anyone and hope we will make it back very soon.
