Description

TDP Alojamentosaude Logos 07THIS VILLA IS CERTIFIED CLEAN AND SAFE BY THE PORTUGUESE TOURIST OFFICE

Located in a peaceful residential area of Garajau, yet within easy walking distance to all amenities - supermarkets, bakery, restaurants and bars, Villa Aquarela was totally refurbished to a very high standard in 2012. The end result is a stunning 3 bedroom villa in Madeira, with 627 square metres on living space, beautifully furnished and equipped to a very high standard.

Of the villas in Madeira, this one occupies one of the finest premium ocean front positions, with sensational 180º far reaching views. With a private heated swimming pool, garden, sea view terraces, games room, newly fitted fitness room, air-conditioning in bedrooms and two wood burning fires for cooler winter evenings.

On the first floor is a bright, spacious open plan lounge, with leather sofas, flat screen television and wood burning fire. Adjacent to this is the dining area and fully equipped kitchen and separate laundry room. There is a additional sun-room with wood burner and surrounding views of the sea, pool and garden below. Patio doors from both lounges open onto the south facing terraces.

Also on this level are two of the bedrooms, a twin with separate shower room and the Master Double Bedroom with en-suite bathroom and sea view balcony. On the lower level is the third double bedroom with en-suite shower room and direct access to the terrace, patios and swimming pool. All bedrooms have individually controlled air conditioning units.

The very large lower floor are provides a playstation 4 corener with flat screen monitor, a pool table, ping pong table and table football - so plenty to keep the children (and adults) amused at any time of the day! The new fitness room features a multifunction fitness machine, eleiptical cross-trainer, bicycle, wights and yoga mats, has the paricular benefit of direct sea-view.

There is plenty of outdoor space with a variety of patios for you to relax and enjoy your days in the sunshine. There is a large wooden dining table and chairs by the built in barbecue, and just below, perched above the sea cliff, is the swimming pool, sun loungers and shower and tropical garden, all with 180º views of the ocean.

    Fantastic

    Aquarela was perfect; location, amenities, space, views, - I could go on and on. Norberta at check-in was helpful and available for questions throughout our stay. There are restaurants and shops within walking distance and a full-service mercado just a short drive. Don't miss out on this gem. You won't be disappointed.

    A truly beautiful villa. There is so much space. We loved the pool, games room and gym equipment but the main attraction was the spectacular view. Sunrise and sunset were amazing. Thanks to Carolina too who, from booking to check out, was so helpful. We can't wait to return to Madeira

    Perfect house in a good location
    The house was even better and bigger, than we expected from the pictures. We were 6 adults, we used and enjoyed every corner of the spacy house. Preheated pool was a must for us, and it worked perfectly. Linda, who meet us at the house, was very kind and helpful. Big sunny barbeque area. Everything just modern and in good condition. Highly recommended.

    Bonjour, Voilà maintenant près d'une semaine que nous sommes rentrés sans encombre chez nous et je voudrais vous remercier pour la qualité des prestations que votre agence nous a fournies. En effet que ce soit pour le transfert de l'aéroport, la mise à disposition à une heure tardive de la maison très confortable, la propreté dans laquelle nous l'avons trouvée, la parfaite concordance avec la description et les images sur le site internet, la réactivité à régler au plus vite les petits problèmes constatés, la facilité de location du véhicule et son prix tout compris, tout a été parfait. Merci encore et bonne continuation Bien cordialement, G.André

    Tolle Aussicht
    Da das Haus am Ende der Zufahrtsstrasse steht gibt es keinen Verkehrslärm. Es ist gut eingerichtet und genügend Platz zum Entspannen. Bei Fragen war Linda sehr hilfsbereit. Störend war nur, dass in jedem andern Haus Hunde sind, die bis Abends spät und in der Nacht bellen. Die Insel selber ist sehr schön und interessant, speziell der Wechsel innerhalb kurzer Distanz von Sonne zu Regen.

    "Thank you very much for taking the time to post your review. Madeira has lots of dogs and I am sorry if they disturbed you. Usually they are not a problem for Villa Aquarela.
    Das Haus ist sehr komfortabel ausgestattet.

    Das Haus ist sehr komfortabel ausgestattet. Toll ist die untere Etage mit Fitnessgeräten, Tischtennisplatte, Billardtisch und Kicker. Die Küche ist perfekt ausgestattet. Es gibt gemütliche Sitzecken mit grandiosem Ausblick aufs Meer.

    The Villa itself is very spacious - two very nice en suite rooms perfectly suited four adults and baby. There was a third room with twin beds probably best suited for kids rather than adults. Good facilities and very relaxing to hang out. The views: amazing. Full sea views with sunrise and sunset; and actually sea view from most of the rooms in the villa. Typical day was to take a 5-10 min stroll up the hill to the local market and bakery for fresh bread, orange juice, eggs and of course the fantastic pastries. Then back to villa for breakfast on the terrace. You really need a car here if you want to explore - we did and enabled us to see quite a bit of the island. So typically we would go out for the day then either dinner at the villa or at the local restaurants, which whilst not much choice were perfectly decent. Tips: we paid for pool heating which was probably a waste as we weren't swimming that much and I doubt it made a huge difference (but with a baby we didn't want to chance it). We stayed one week and got transfers with our Madeira and hire car for four days - this seemed to work really well for us - could not fault it and the transfer is worth the money in my opinion. Other tip for driving: go slow! It is very steep and windy. Baby was car sick. Also we tried to drive to Monte and the car was not powerful enough to climb the steep road, so don't try it in a small car full of passengers! Would I stay again or recommend: yes. We loved the local feeling of Garajau, and it was ten minutes to Funchal by car, few minutes to supermarket. Thanks Our Madeira team!

    Thank you!
    A perfect holiday home.

    We were two couples so villa size was a little overwhelming. For a family with kids it would be magical. Sadly weather not warm enough to use pool since we are wimps! Our absolute joy was the outside space and the glorious view and sunsets over the ocean. Location was good, mainly quiet area apart from the dog choir at night ! We only ever managed to get the bus once to Funchal it was really scary ! Taxis from outside hotel Dom Pedro and the whole island were very reasonable and a great way to see the island. Eating out locally was good. The villa was spotless & well managed, transfers excellent, contact with team easy and effective. Would definitely return. Thank you

    A great villa on a beautiful island.

    A fabulous villa, clean,tidy and well maintained with everything you could possibly need provided for you. Positioned with an easy walk into the local shops and restaurants, so although we had a car we seldom used it on an evening. Would definitely recommend this villa.

    Wonderful villa with great view
    We had a perfect week in this wonderful and very well equipped villa. We loved the great view from all rooms onto the Atlantic Ocean and we liked the balconys , terraces , we very much enjoyed the pool! The children liked the games room. The villa Aquarela is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday! We would highly recommend it!

    Die Aussicht und die Ruhe sind einfach unbeschreiblich. Und dieser viel Platz, die wunderbare Außen Küche, der Pool den man beheizen kann. Das war einer unserer schönsten Urlaube. Auch die Kommunikation war sehr schnell und sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Einmal klemmte die Türe und nach 2 std war es wieder repariert und tiptop. Wir werden wieder kommen

    Ocean front villa - Garajau, Madeira
    This villa was as described. It is spacious, but also has quiet comfortable areas to relax. Everywhere was clean and beautifully presented. The kitchen is well equipped; we stayed for 2 weeks and used most of the domestic appliances including the cooker and washing machine. There is a games room downstairs with snooker and I recommend the table football...great fun! The views are simply breathtaking, with nothing to obscure the gorgeous blue sea. The pool was clean and maintained and the gardens appear to have recently had newly planted flowers and shrubs. . Each terrace is a delight to use and the owners have put a lot of thought into providing the essentials for their visitors. It is about a 10 min walk to the shops and restaurants which cater for your every need. We found the local bakery and coffee bars offered delicious cakes bread etc. The restaurants in Garajau are of a high standard with a good selection of fresh fish + meat. We used both the bus and taxis with ease and found local people helpful and friendly. The owner has a handbook which was very useful. I would recommend this villa the location is excellent and the facilities made our stay in Madeira a delight.

    Amazing views, spacious villa

    We spent a wonderful week in this villa. The location is great with breathtaking views. The house is in a residential area, very quite, still close to restaurants and shops. The garden is amazing, full of beautiful flowers. The pool was a must for our kids, nice size and deep enough. Norberta was very kind and helpful with everything we wanted. Thank you. We often used the entertainment area in the evenings and the hometrainer was a big plus for me. Starting the day there while watching the morning ferry to pass by. We loved to have breakfast outside on the terrace before we left for our levada walks. We recommended this villa already to many of our friends and we will be back for sure.
