Beautifully Refurbished Villa, Heated Pool, Superb Views | Casa da Pinheira II - 73

Fantastic and peaceful location overlooking the town and ocean.

This newly refurbished 5-bedroom sister villa do Casa da Pinheira I, allies peace and tranquillity of the residential area in which it is located with the wonderful views of the town and ocean due to its prominent position above Funchal. A high quality finish and light contemporary furnishings are complemented by a covered terrace, heated pool and garden that all benefit from those stunning views.

On arrival, the first thing you will notice is the fact that those superb views of Funchal and the ocean are always there - from the garden, whilst swimming in the pool, from the front terrace (what lovelier place to have your meals?) and from three of the four bedrooms.

The welcome holiday feeling is also created by the furnishings, which are light and of a very high standard.
The villa is very private, being positioned below the street has a large side and front yard (with good parking space) and is gated.
Access to the town centre is easy via the regular public transport that passes by the villa, or 5 minutes by car (a 20 minute downhill walk will also bring you to town).

This is a villa that offers everything: a great peaceful location with outstanding views, high quality furnishings, a heated pool and privacy.

The main living area and 4 of the bedrooms is all on one floor with access via steps to the front terrace or via a ramp to the kitchen entrance. It can therefore be recommended for people with mobility difficulties.
The 5th bedroom with double bed is located on the lower level which has a separate external access. There is also a small lounge area with sofa and TV.

Bedroom 1 Master Bedroom with queen double bed and views of the town and ocean. It has a vestibule that allows the bathroom to become en-suite or available for other guests.
Bedroom 2 Double bed and views of the town and ocean.
Bedroom 3 Double bed and views of the town and ocean.
Bedroom 4 Two single beds
Bedroom 5 Basement bedroom, exterior access, en-suite shower

Bathroom 1 En-suite to Master, washbasin, toilet, bidet, shower
Bathroom 2 Family bathroom, single washbasin, toilet, bidet, bath with overhead shower
Bathroom 3 Lower ground floor, washbasin, toilet, shower

The New Years Eve and June firework displays are renowned, and Casa da Pinheira II provides the perfect viewpoint for these - book early or you will be disappointed.

There is free wi-fi connection throughout the Villa
Although not essential, as in most villas, a hire car is recommended. There is secure parking space for at least 3 cars.

Swimming pool dimensions
Shape: Rectangular
Length: 8m
Width: 4m
Depth: from 1,40m
Swimming pool heating:
Pool heating is optional and costs 100,00€ per week for a setting of 24ºC, paid in cash on arrival. A supplement of 30,00€ per week applies for  setting of each additional degree up to a maximum of 26ºC
Pool heating should be requested at least one week in advance. Should it be requested after arrival at the villa, the minimum charge applicable is one week, which is payable from the time the heating is turned on.

The cosmopolitan city of Funchal with its Fruit & Vegetable Market, Fish Market (the best morning to visit is Friday), Marina, Harbour, Theatre and many shops and restaurants is only a kilometre away. Public transport is plentiful and passes just outside the villa.

The Botanical Gardens are a must for garden lovers, especially as they are so close to the villa, approximately 500 metres. However it is an uphill walk all the way, but the local bus service is frequent and on your door step. Only a 5 minutes walk are the lovely Orchid Gardens and Quinta das Boa Vista, definitely worth a visit.

Golf
Two championship courses, Palheiro (3kms) and Santo da Serra (15 kms) offer challenging golf amongst spectacular scenery. Alternatively you may like to take the ferry to the nearby island of Porto Santo and try the course there.

Most perfect location
we loved our stay in Casa da Pinheira II - the introduction was perfect, we received a beautiful "welcome food arrangement" and everything was explained very well. The villa is most beautiful, very clean, very good equipped and the location is perfect. Some shops are not far away - for the daily things you need. The VIEW is stunning. The pool was great and warm :-) We loved our week in this beautiful island and most of all in this perfect villa

Thank you for your kind comments and 5 star review. Delighted you enjoyed the house and the service you received.
Perfect stay
We were two families who rented the house for a week - 8 people in total. The host/owner was very friendly and helped us whenever needed. We rented a car with her assistance and were picked up directly at the airport - a good experience. The house has a fantastic pool area and terrace from where you have an amazing view over the city and the sea, and it's only a 20 minutes' walk to the city center, be prepared however for a steep walk downhill.

"Thank you very much for your super review. We do have lots of hills in Madeira, but the bus stop is just a few metres from the front door so no need to walk."
Wunderschönes Haus mit Postkartenblick über Funchal
Wir (2 Personen) dürften 12 spitzenmäßige Tage in diesem tollen Haus verbringen. In dieser Zeit haben wir uns dort pudelwohl gefühlt und es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Vier geschmackvoll eingerichtete Schlafzimmer (davon drei mit Meerblick) und zwei vollwertige Bäder sollten auch für 8 Personen einen angenehmen Aufenthalt garantieren, so dass wir schon über einen zweiten Besuch mit der ganzen Familie nachdenken. Der Postkartenblick von der Terrasse über den Pool auf die Stadt ist einzigartig und wir haben ihn jeden Tag auf´s Neue genossen! Wem die Straßen in die Altstadt für einen ca. 30 minütigen Spaziergang zu steil sein sollten, der kann auf die zahlreichen Busverbindungen in unmitteltbarer Nähe oder auf ein günstiges Taxi zurückgreifen. Eine super Empfehlung war der nahe gelegene Bäcker, auch wenn der sicherlich das ein oder andere Kilo Urlaubsgewicht beigesteuert hat. Wir kommen gerne wieder. Lieber heute als morgen. Danke für den tollen Urlaub!

Vue à couper le souffle !
Idéalement situé, à 2km du centre 5min en voiture, La maison est conforme aux photos ! La vue panoramique est fantastique, idéal pour se reposer et profiter de l'île.

Merci Beaucoup!
Schönes Haus mit traumhafter Aussicht!!!
Wir haben im März eine Woche in dem tollen Haus verbracht. Es ist sehr schön eingerichtet und man fühlt sich dort pudelwohl. Wir haben uns jedoch größtenteils auf der traumhaften Terrasse aufgehalten, wenn wir mal nicht „on Tour“ gewesen sind. Der Terrassenbereich ist riesig. Die Aussicht einfach nur spektakulär. Man hat einen wunderschönen Ausblick über Funchal, den Hafen und den Atlantik. Es gibt zahlreiche Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, die innerhalb von wenigen Minuten mit dem Auto zu erreichen sind. Wir wären gern noch länger geblieben und werden das Haus bestimmt wieder mieten, wenn wir das nächste Mal auf Madeira sind. Wir können dieses Haus anstandslos empfehlen. Carlota ist eine sehr sympathische Gastgeberein.

Thank you very much for your comments and recommendation. We are very happy that everything was to your liking. We hope to welcome you back again one day.
Ideal for a relaxing and an active break in a great location
Casa da Pinheira II sits in a beautiful location above Funchal with stunning views down over the harbour. The location is also incredibly convenient for public transport with bus stop almost outside the gate and regular buses up and down to to Funchal or up to botanic gardens where you can get a cable car to Monte.. Turn left and 47 bus at the end of the road will take you up to the Hortensia cafe and the Levada dos Tornos. Villa itself is spacious, elegant, very comfortable and immaculately clean and well equipped. We chose not to cook as too many excellent places to eat in Funchal but everything including a barbecue was there. We did eat ( all too often) at a very nice bakery nearby. Turn left out the gate and take first right up the hill. For a nice local bar turn right out the gate and try the poncha....

Thank you so much for your super review and kind comments. The local bakery is deliciously dangerous! Great that you tasted the local poncha. Hope to welcome you back again on of these days."
Schweben über Funchal
Ein wundervolles Haus, geräumig und sauber in schönster Lage! Die Übergabe und Abnahme durch Carlotta war freundlich und klappte reibungslos, als Ansprechpartnerin war sie immer erreichbar. Und so half sie uns auch bei einem kleinen Internetproblem. Ansonsten war alles vorhanden und funktionierte prima, sofern wir es zu zweit überhaupt brauchten. Ganz besonders haben wir uns über die normale Kaffeemaschine gefreut und zusätzlich zur Gasheizung gab es auch zwei elektrische Heizkörper. Der Pool war wie von uns gewünscht beheizt und das war super, die Temperatur wurde großzügig eingehalten, vielen Dank! Die Aussicht ist phantastisch, man schwebt geradezu über der Stadt, da brauchten wir den Fernseher ( mehrere Programme in Englisch ) nicht. Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen, vielen Dank und vielleicht dürfen wir noch einmal zu Gast sein in diesem schönen Haus.

Fantastic Property
A truly outstanding property in every way. Secluded with stunning views and fabulous pool alongside open and shaded seating areas. Inside the property did not disappoint with classy and spacious accommodation that combined traditional furnishings with modern twists and decor. All rooms were light and spacious and furnished with high quality fixtures and furnishings. Both bathrooms and kitchen had everything you could possibly need. The house was extremely clean and well presented. The area itself was fine with a relatively straight forward downhill walk of about 20 minutes into the old town restaurants. A cheap taxi ride back at night. All in all a fabulous house that was far beyond our expectations. Thanks!

The best view in Funchal
This was the first time I have rented a property for a holiday but I would certainly do it again.We were met on arrival and shown around it is a lovely house lots of space both inside and out ,well maintained and clean and had every facility you could wish for ,the decor and furnishings are superb and we felt at home straight away.None of us wanted to drive while on holiday so we bought weekly passes for the bus service which worked very well for us,the taxis are also reasonable costing 12euro for seven us to travel to Funchals center. As my title for this review says the view from pool and patio area looking over Funchal must be one of the best on the island.Overall a great holiday and the property lived up to everything we expected and thanks to the owner for making the property available for others to enjoy.

Casa da Pinheira II Beautifully Refurbished Villa
Es ist ein wunderschönes Haus mit traumhaften Ausblick. Alles sehr gepflegt und ordentlich. Schlüsselübergabe und Hauseinweisung klappte problemlos. Ein Ansprechpartner war immer vor Ort und so gab es keine Probleme. Sehr freundlich und kulant. Zum Beispiel ging die Kaffeemaschine kaputt, und wurde noch am selben Tag ausgetauscht, obwohl es ein Feiertag war, das war großartig, vielen Dank. Wir haben uns hier sehr wohl gefühlt und haben jeden Augenblick mit unserer Familie genossen. (9 Personen) Und wir können dieses Haus und seine Gastgeber nur weiter empfehlen.

Thank you very much.
lovely property and amazing service
We could not have been happier with the villa, it was spotless and had everything you could possibly need. It is situated in a very quiet area yet close to the town centre and we walked down every day,all be it a very steep walk. We had a couple of minor things as in wedding a second heating as we had some unusual weather at the start and it was delivered very quickly. Every request or message was promptly replied to and dealt with which was wonderful. We would have no qualms about recommending the villa to family and friends and will stay again in the future with my brother and wife.
