THIS VILLA IS CERTIFIED CLEAN AND SAFE BY THE PORTUGUESE TOURIST OFFICE
SISTER PROPERTY TO VILLA DO MAR I, VILLA DO MAR III AND COTTAGE DO MAR
The owner has decorated the Villa in lovely colours that reflect the old fishing cottages of Madeira. The living area is full of light and has full length sliding windowpanes that provide full and direct sea-views and leads to the swimming pool terrace.
In addition to the sitting and dining areas, you will find a delightfully decorated open plan kitchen and separate barbecue. The Master Bedroom with en-suite bathroom is on the first floor; the second bedroom is below it and has next to it the family bathroom. The third bedroom and en-suite bathroom is in the loft of what was the barn, and is reached via a separate set of steps. The living area and all the bedrooms have air-conditioning. There is free Wi-Fi connection throughout the Villa.
The Villa is secluded and very private and off the beaten track and accessed via a narrow steep driveway. The whole house and grounds is perched on the edge of land, only 30 metres above the pebble beach, and affords astounding views - you feel as one with the ocean.
There are 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.

We have just returned from 12 days at the self-catering Villa do Mar II and we loved it so much we did not want to leave! This is a totally private villa nestled on the side of a cliff overlooking a private beach with spectacular views of the unlimited expanse of the Atlantic Ocean. The sea is almost within a stone's throw of the property. Looking out of the windows in several of the rooms makes it feel like you're on a cruise ship because all you can see is the ocean! The swimming pool was perfect for pre-teen children - one end deep enough for an adult to stand in, the other end very shallow, and large enough to play and swim in. The weather in Madeira in high season is so pleasantly warm and humid that the pool was essential to cool off! The facilities of this recently new property were very well designed and immaculately clean. The modern well equipped kitchen was a joy to use (but keep it clean to avoid ants), and it was also great fun to cook in the BBQ (effectively an outdoor wood oven). It really helped having free wifi in the villa also. Did I mention that you can see the sea from inside? - I have never seen such an amazing view from a kitchen anywhere else! We loved the way the villa has been thoughtfully, carefully and colourfully decorated - even the colourful chimney above the outdoor brick fire! It really is a bright and happy place. It was great to have access to the private beach (shared with the other local properties) literally directly below the villa, accessed via a nearly vertical wooden staircase down to a series of stone steps. This included use of the reasonably equipped beach house. This grey pebble beach was great but the waves can be very strong so take care when paddling as the waves can easily carry pebbles in them. (There is a man-made sandy beach in nearby Calheta). The villa is close to the resort of Calheta - great for dolphin watching trips, restaurants, shopping and the Pingo Doce supermarket. This was our first visit to the stunning island of Madeira, and we definitely want to return and stay in this property again. The section of track down to the villa from the road is certainly narrow and very steep, but we quickly got used to it - tip: keep your car in 1st gear all the way down as well as up it; a small car with less powerful engine could stall in 1st gear up this hill unless you keep the revs high enough.
Das Haus ist wundervoll direkt am Meer gelegen. Der Blick ist fantastisch. Wir waren zu Zweit in der Villa, es war perfekt, die Ausstattung ist sehr gut. Wir kommen wieder! Christine und Thomas
Herrlich gelegene Ferienvilla mit 3 Schlafzimmern inkl. Bad-en-Suite. Gut ausgestattete Küche und schön möblierten Zimmern. Liegen und Sonnenschirme am Pool vorhanden. Grundstück ist komplett umzäunt und der Mietwagen kann auf dem Grundstück abgestellt werden. Zur Villa gehört noch ein Strandhaus, dass über einen separaten Treppenzugang mitgenutzt werden kann. Strand wie auf Madeira üblich ist ein "Steinstrand". Zufahrt zur Villa etwas abenteuerlich, aber auch daran gewöhnt man sich recht schnell. Betreuung vor Ort durch Rodrigues (Mitarbeiter des Eigentümers) sehr gut. Insgesamt ist dieses Ferienhaus absolut zu empfehlen und wir haben unsere 2 Wochen Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Zumal die Villa auch verkehrstechnisch recht gut liegt und man sehr schnell auf der Autobahn ist bzw. auch die umliegenden Supermärkte in Calheta oder Ribeiro Brava ansteuern kann.
Die Villa überzeugt sowohl von der Architektur, Lage als auch Einrichtung und entspricht den gezeigten Bildern. Wir haben die 14 Tage sehr genossen. Der Blick direkt auf den Atlantik ist unbeschreiblich. Einzig die letzten 200m Anfahrt sind etwas abenteuerlich, da eine steile Stichstraße zum Haus führt. Aber daran gewöhnt man sich recht schnell. Supermärkte finden Sie 5 bzw. 15 Minuten vom Haus entfernt. Gleichwohl es sehr viele gute Restaurants auf Madeira gibt. Wir haben die Villa genutzt um ganz Madeira zu erkunden und würden jederzeit die Villa wieder mieten.
Traumlage, sehr freundliches und hilfsbereites Personal
We booked this last minute because of COVID and Madeira was one of a few places that we could go without quarantining on arrival back in the UK. The photos on the HomeAway and Our Madeira websites looked fantastic. As usual, the photos don't tell the whole storey but unusually this time it was the photos that didn't match the actuality. The place is stunning- there is no other way of putting it. We have been renting houses and villas for about 10 years and this was, without doubt, the nicest place we have stayed in. There are no houses overlooking it and you don't see any other houses from the villa or the grounds. The villa itself is set up about 100 feet on a cliff above a pebbly beach and the only sound is the sound of the waves breaking- no traffic and noisy neighbours. The place has been very well thought out with lots of really nice touches and was very comfortable for three. Four would be fine but six might be a touch tight. In the main part of the house, two sides are glass patio windows opening onto the sea view and the garden /pool area. The place was spotless and the beds comfortable. The whole house is airconditioned if needed. Somebody came around every day or two to clean the pool and because we stayed more than a week, the house was cleaned during our stay. The only potential issue is the very steep and narrow road down to the house. This was certainly "exciting" the first couple of times we drove it but we were certainly much happier (if not exactly blase) after a few days. The road is well lit in the evening so returning after dark was not a problem. We had a BMW 3 series and I would not want anything larger than this. Having an automatic made quite a difference and I would recommend getting that rather than a manual. We've been back three days and I just booked it again for next year - hence solving the quandary of wanting to leave a good review but not wanting to tell everybody about it :). The booking was very straightforward. I intend to leave this review on TripAdvisor, HomeAway and Google so if you see it in multiple places you will know it was me doing it.
beautiful spot, and the beach is almost private, we have seen only a couple of people during our stay. The little extra house at the beach is fun, and excellent for a drink and bbq at sunset. If you are lookig for a week to relax and calm down this is an excellent place.
Sehr schönes Haus, traumhafte Lage und super Blick aufs Meer.
This is, so far, the best airbnb experience I've ever had. Bruno went beyond and above to make our stay comfortable. The location is simply amazing.
Eine spektakuläre Lage und ein Haus in dem wir uns sehr wohlgefühlt haben - der beheizte Pool war die minimalen Mehrkosten wert !! Sehr nette Hausübergabe - da zu unserer Ankunftszeit die Läden schon geschlossen waren wurde eine von uns erstellte Einkaufsliste besorgt. Die steile Zufahrt ist unvergesslich... aber nach ein paar Tagen gewöhnt man sich auch daran ;-)
The views at this home simply can't be beat. You're right on the waterfront and can enjoy the sound of the waves. The little cabin down on the beach is also a nice bonus. Internet works fast and there is a router in each room (great if you have to work while enjoying the island!). The hosts are great and the farmers in the area are very friendly. Super quiet, peaceful, and a great place to just unwind and enjoy the stunning scenery. Highly recommend and we'll be back!
