Impressive villa, nice pool
We stayed in the Skylounge villa for a week in April, the villa is very impressive, very large and modern. We have stayed in 2 other villa's with pools in Funchal so were able to compare previous holidays. The villa was clean and well presented, the pool is a really good size but cool, we did pay for it to be heated but the weather wasn't very good during our stay and we needed the pool to be warmer than it was. The villa is well placed for Funchal, it is a 20 minute walk down a really steep hill, we walked down but got a taxi back! We enjoyed the games room in the villa.

Thank you very much for your comments.
Amazing villa, great pool, brilliant service
We've just come back from an amazing week at the sky lounge in Funchal. The house is fantastic and the photos probably don't do it justice, it is a really stunning house, kitted out incredibly well and in immaculate condition. There is loads of space so great for kids to run around, while the balcony and pool terrace are both great sun traps! It is as described in a residential area but only a 15 min walk from the town centre and 10 mins to a supermarket - and the bus stops outside the house. We got cabs back most evenings which were v reasonable - c. 5 euros (and I don't think I've ever seen more cabs per person in a town before so never had to wait!). The pool was a real highlight - much bigger than most villa pools we looked at, long enough to do proper lengths and warm enough for kids to jump in (though heating the pool is an extra but worthwhile cost). Our 16 month old loved going up and down in the lift (and his grandmother found it very useful too!) and the games room/ pool table was great in the evenings. Carlota was very helpful - the only major thing the villa could do with is a bit more info in the house - e.g. Which switches do what for the lights and blinds. But overall a stunning place, we had a great time!

The Ultimate 'State of the Art' Holiday Property
We. as a family, have for many years stayed in Villas/Holiday properties in locations including the USA, Canada, The Algarve, Tunisia, France, Cyprus, Spain/Majorca, The Channel Islands, North and South of Ireland and, of course, Madeira. This Villa is the ultimate in terms of the architecture, the layout, the furnishings, ( with a few reservations), the facilities and the location. It is extremely clean and well maintained. The Lounge is literally in the sky and provides stupendous views over Funchal. I cannot praise Colleta enough - she was a star ! Call with a problem and she was there almost immediately and it was attended to or advice was given in the most charming and helpful manner. Whilst the furnishings and equipment were first class there were a number of very small matters which, as a 'semi'- retired Architect and Interior Designer, I consider deserve attention. The very large and heavy doors to the pool and patio, the patio toilet, and from the 3rd floor corridor to the laundry room would benefit from having handles fitted, both inside and outside. Similarly the sliding windows/doors to the 3rd floor bedrooms and, in particular the lounge doors require handles to make them easier to open and close. There are no small shelves in the showers in which to put soaps and shampoos. The bedrooms would benefit from having a small chair. There are myriads of switches for lights, windows blinds and curtains. The inclusion of a guide as to the function and location of the switches would have been a great help. ( Perhaps in more than one language ?). The ladies in my party complained about the poor lighting around the mirrors in the bedrooms which were not directional and which didn't help in applying make-up ! Similarly there are no illuminated shaving mirrors for men with an adjacent electrical plug for electrical shavers. ! I would have liked a pool thermometer to convince the ladies in my party that the water was not cold !!! Please do not consider these observations as being destructive they are intended to be both constructive and helpful. In conclusion I would not hesitate to recommend the Sky Lounge Residence to family, friends and anyone who asks. Thank you for making our vacation as 'One to remember !! We'll be back again. Kind regards, David J. Wood. ( And on behalf of Pamela, Brian and Valerie).
