Description

TDP Alojamentosaude Logos 07THIS 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.

Access is via a pathway with steps that leads from the level of the Villas do Mar down to the beach.

Vila do Mar II is a sister villa to the popular Villa do Mar I, which is situated next door which has been the home for many a happy holidaymaker for the past couple of years.

The house has air conditioning (lounge and bedrooms) and free Wi-Fi internet connection.

Madeira
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.

    Man fühlt sich in diesem Haus gleich total wohl . Es war unser zweiter Aufenthalt dort. Ich werde das Meeresrauschen sehr vermissen . Der Ausblick ist wunderschön und du kannst stundenlang aufs Meer schauen. Auch unseren Kindern hat es gut gefallen sie haben den Pool ausgiebig genutzt. Es war ein gelungener Urlaub und vielleicht kommen wir nächstes Jahr wieder.

    Dear Dunja, Thank you so much for your heartwarming words! We're thrilled to know that you felt totally at home during your second stay in our house. The sound of the sea is indeed special, and we understand how it becomes a part of the experience. We're glad the view brought you moments of joy, and it's wonderful to hear that your children enjoyed the pool extensively. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back, and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again for another great holiday next year. Warm regards, António
    Amazing location.

    Wir hatten eine schöne Woche in der Villa do Mar II. Das Haus liegt wirklich sehr schön. Umweltgeräusche, Autos, Bauarbeiten, andere Menschen etc. hört man hier nicht. Nur Meeresrauschen, aber das ordentlich laut :o) Uns hat auch der Zugang zum Meer gefallen, baden konnten wir leider nicht , Meer war zu lebhaft. Aber dort zu sitzen und den Wellen zuschauen ist prima. Der Pool mit der Gartenanlage ist sehr schön. Die Begrüßung mit großem Obstteller war auch sehr nett. Was auch gut war, dass es eine Filterkaffeemaschine und eine Kapselmaschine (Delta Kapseln, gibt es im Supermarkt) gab. Da konnte man auch mal nur schnell eine Tasse Kaffee oder Espresso machen. Aber die Zufahrt zum Haus, die hat es in sich. Nur sehr sichere, umsichtige Fahrer sollte diese fahren. Es ist eine einspurige, sehr enge Straße, heißt, wenn jemand entgegen kommt, muß eine/r rückwärts zurück. Geht alles, aber man sollte darauf eingestellt sein.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback about your stay at Villa do Mar II. We're delighted to hear that you had a fantastic week and enjoyed the unique beauty of the house's location. Your description of the tranquil surroundings and the soothing sound of the sea is truly captivating. It's always a pleasure when guests can fully immerse themselves in the serenity of the environment. The access to the sea, even if swimming wasn't an option due to lively waters, provided you with a peaceful spot to simply sit and appreciate the mesmerizing waves. We're glad you found it enjoyable. Our team takes pride in maintaining the pool and garden area, so we're thrilled to know you found it very nice. Also, we appreciate your positive remarks about the warm welcome with the large fruit platter. Your note about the coffee facilities is well-noted. We understand the importance of having various options to enjoy your coffee, and it's great to know you found it convenient. Regarding the access road, we understand it can be challenging, and your advice for skilled and cautious drivers is valuable information for future guests. We want everyone to be prepared for the journey to the house. We're truly grateful for your detailed and thoughtful feedback. We hope to welcome you back to Villa do Mar II in the future and make your stay even more enjoyable.

    Thank you for reviewing your stay at Villa do Mar II!
    Madeira is a magical island. And this is a very special villa. You feel very private and tucked away and you are right on the edge of the cliff so have amazing views of the ocean. The facilities were great too. We particularly loved the pool and the big beds. The driveway down is not for the faint hearted, you need to be a very confident driver to do it.

    Our second time at Villa Do Mar 2 and it was again amazing. What a beautiful place. The ocean view, the pool, the garden, the sound of the waves. If you want to truly relax and connect to the ocean and nature, come here. Also, Bruno is very responsive. Would love to come back. What a beautiful island and house.

    Dear Hailey, Thank you for reviewing your stay at Villa do Mar II. We are glad to hear that you found the location incredible and the views were stunning and also that the house was clean and beautiful. We look forward to host you again in the future. Kind Regards, António
    The views, pool and garden were stunning! The house was very clean and Bruno and the team were wonderful and always helpful. We did unfortunately badly damage our car on the narrow tricky road to the house when the wheel slipped into a ditch and got stuck. Bruno, Ruben and the host were extremely generous and kind with their efforts and help and managed to push the car back on to the road. The sound of the waves (which is lovely in itself) is ever present so light sleepers may choose to sleep in the better insulated top bedrooms. The 2 main bedrooms are above each other and share an open plan staircase, but the lower bedroom has its own door. The third bedroom is best suited for children. Thank you for your hospitality and help!

    Die Lage des Hauses direkt am Meer ist fantastisch. Dank der schönen Einrichtung, der hochwertigen Ausstattung und der fröhlichen und lichtdurchfluteten Architektur fühlt man sich sofort wohl. Es passt einfach alles. Auch der Poolbereich und der kleine, aber sehr schöne und gepflegte tropische Garten ist ideal um sich nach einer Wanderung zu entspannen. Hervorzuheben ist auch die sonnige und geschützte Lage des Hauses. Während es in den Bergen und an anderen Orten der Insel wolkig war oder geregnet hat, konnten wir die Sonne am Pool genießen. Wir können dieses Haus uneingeschränkt empfehlen und würden es auf jeden Fall wieder mieten

    A super beautiful villa, like a sea eagle's nest, 30 meters above the calm to the raging Atlantic. Very close to nature. The ocean view is unbelievably beautiful. A very tasteful house with lots of extras and style. The driveway to the house is extremely steep, but you get used to it after a few days. We will come again.

    Thank you!

    Probably our best vacation rental ever. Pictures are probably a bit old: it's better now! the garden plants have grown up and it really enhances the property's charm. Special congratulations to the gardener: all looks neat and very well maintained like in a palace hotel, not one leave on the ground, great variety of plants to bring flowers at every time of the year: fantastic. The pool is quite large (10m) and really enjoyable with views on the garden, the cliffs and the see. The house is large, 3 independent bedroom with decent comfortable mattress. Very large living room (note: should improve the atmosphere with warmer light bulbs). Kitchen is much better equipped than any rentals we got in the past. As a cherry on the cake, there is a beach house down the cliff (shared with 3 other properties), which is absolutely fabulous: we got down there for drinks at sunset it was marvelous. Now the only downside: the access road is very narrow and stiff with only two places where you can cross another car. Must admit we only crossed one car in 8 days though! Need to be a confident driver and prefer a smaller car, possibly automatic gear box (start/stop in stiff road, but this is also true on many small roads in Madeira).

    A wonderful holiday in a beautiful house where you will feel like in paradise. You can listen to the waves and relax or wander around beautiful Madeira. In any case you will not make a mistake and you will definitely want to come back!

    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!

    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 ;-)

    So good we booked it again for next year

    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.

    Beautiful quiet location, well equipped.
    This is a lovely villa with a great view over the sea. Very well equipped and a lovely garden. We were invited out for a meal at the owners restaurant the second night, which was very good. There is a lovely beach house but you need to plan for a day down there as there are around 150 steps down to it. The beach is stony so plastic shoes are a good idea.The owners agent was as helpful as we could have hoped for. Especially for someone who usually drives on the left, the road is quite difficult, steep with sharp bends.

    Traumvilla in spektakulärer Lage
    Wir haben im Juni eine wunderschöne Woche in der Villa do Mar II verbracht. Es war alles perfekt: die wundervolle Aussicht aufs Meer, das beruhigende Rauschen der Wellen, die Ausstattung der Villa. Das Schlafzimmer hat ein Bullauge aufs Meer, sodass man sich wie auf einem Schiff vorkommt, zusätzlich noch ein Dachfenster zum Sternegucken! Die Betten sind sehr bequem. Das Wohnzimmer mit Küche und Essplatz ist modern eingerichtet, besonders haben uns die fröhlichen Farben gefallen. Der Außenbereich ist mit schönen Möbeln ausgestattet, der Pool ist ein Traum und die Bepflanzung sehr tropisch. Senhor Acacio hat uns sehr freundlich und gut betreut. Es lief alles völlig problemlos ab. Vielen Dank an den Besitzer für die Einladung in sein Restaurant Vila do Peixe. Wir haben das gute Essen in nettem Ambiente sehr genossen. Wir freuen uns schon auf das nächste Mal!

    Superbes vacances
    Nous tenons à remercier l'agence locale Our Madeira pour les conseils ainsi que le propriétaire et M. Acacio sur place qui nous ont réservé un acceuil formidable pour ces vacances superbes. La maison Villa do Mar II est en tout point identique au descriptif, avec en prime des conseils et des prix sur les visites. Un accompagnement en or tout en restant discrets. Chapeau ! Attention tout de même à l'accés final jusqu'à la maison qui est un peu périlleux en voitures ! Mais il est toujours possible de laisser sa voiture en haut et puis, c'est un peu le cas de toute l'île !! Le coin de Calheta est le plus ensoleillé de l'île et les couchers de soleil garantis chaque soir. Les commerces sont à 10min en voiture et les plus éloignés des sites de visite à moins d'une heure. Pour la saison, cette fin d'avril était douce mais c'est le tout début de la floraison. Privilégier peut-être juin pour profiter de toutes les couleurs. Prévoir de bonnes chaussures, ne pas avoir le vertige pour les randonnées (ne pas les prendre à la légère même sans dénivelé !), ne pas oublier le coupe vent pour les hauteurs souvent chargées. C'est une île magnifique où il y a toujours quelque chose à voir et la Villa Do Mar II est idéale pour cela avec sa piscine pour le soir !! A refaire.

    Well equipped property with a stunning view
    My wife and I spent 10 days at this property with our 3 children and everybody loved it. The house is very comfortable, well equipped and offers direct access to a private beach. The swimming pool was large enough for us all and we certainly made the most of it. If you are after a quiet property with beautiful views out to the sea then this could be the one for you :)

    Thank you very much:)
    Vila do mar is a extremly lovely place!
    We have already been several times to Madeira, this time we could afford a little "more" for the place to sleep, eat and "live" - so Vila do mar was the very right choice. It is situated that spectacular, you nearly can't imagine even if you look at the pictures. However the house is renovated and decorated with so much care and the special look for lovely details - each corner has something special. The same about the garden and the surrounding! Palms and plants are now grown up - and the roses were flowering even in December. Special thanks to the owner for having created such a beautiful place!

    We are glad that you chose Villa Do Mar II for your stay in Madeira, and are delighted that you love it as much as we do. Thank you very much for your comments.
    What a lovely surprise!
    What a fantastic stunning villa! Madeira was a lovely surprise too. We never expected it to be so diverse and pretty. Loved exploring the island - down by the sea and way, way up in the mountains above the clouds. We loved the terraced terrain, so interesting and stunning flowers all around. The villa has the most amazing views of the sea (it's almost ON the sea) and to hear the crashing waves constantly is a unique bonus. The sunsets were the best we've ever seen. The villa itself is so pretty and has everything you'd need for a relaxing holiday - apart from the road down which is terrifying and daunting (and we are not easily scared - one star has been taken off for it!). I'd have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Our Madeira who were always helpful and quick with their responses. Mr Rodriquez was always on the end of the phone even when we had queries non-villa related (our telescope tripod broke so he advised us where to go to get a replacement). Our complimentary dinner at Vila do Peixe in Camara de Lobos was really delicious - and very kind of the owner. We were very lucky to have had fantastic weather for our two week holiday and found Madeira interesting in every way and recommend that everyone should visit at least once in a lifetime!

    Perfekter Urlaub

    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.

    Vielen Dank für Ihre große Kritik. Thank you very much
    wir hatten einen wunderschönen Urlaub

    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.

    A wonderful, quiet house near the sea

    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

    Clean, well designed villa with spectacular views!

    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.

    Wow! What absolutely amazing comments. Reviews are always so important for our future guests. As this villa is new for summer 2015 reviews are even more important. We couldn't have asked for a nicer one. We are delighted that you loved the villa, the location and that you fell in love with the island. Come back soon - we will be waiting for you. Thank you.
    Fabulous villa with stunning views
    The villa excelled expectations in every way. The view was stunning and the villa itself was perfect. The location is very peaceful indeed and ensures a totally relaxing stay. A very slight downside was the approach road which, if you are a nervous driver may be a little daunting but I'm sure if you have a hire car and are willing to drive abroad, it wouldn't pose a problem. The villa isn't cheap but I guess you get what you pay for. The property manager was really helpful and at the end of the phone if need be. All in all a perfect place to escape but not too far from reality to explore the rest of the beautiful island.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to post your lovely review. We are delighted that the villa exceeded your expectations and that you enjoued the villa, its amazing location and of course the island.Hope to welcome you back again one day.
    Unschlagbare Lage und Aussicht.
    Villa do mar II ist unserer Meinung nach das schönste Ferienhaus auf Madeira. Die Lage ist grandios direkt am Meer mit privatem Strandhaus und Privatstrand die über eine Treppe zu erreichen sind. Die Einrichtung ist sehr liebevoll ausgewählt. Der Poolbereich ist eine Oase der Entspannung. Der Eigentümer und sein Team sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Für uns gibt es nur eine Adresse auf Madeira und das ist Villa do mar II.
