Spacious Villa with Large Garden, Heated Pool, Sea Views | Villa Albatroz

Caniço de Baixo, Portugal



Villa Albatroz is a well designed, large family villa with an abundance of space inside and out. Furnished to a very high standard we think you will find that this holiday villa has everything you would expect to find in a quality rental property.

Perched on the top of a cliff, it benefits from panoramic views of the sea second to no other villas in Madeira. With the exception of the lounge, all of the rooms are one level. All 4 bedrooms are a good size and have en-suite bathrooms. There are two twin bedrooms, a double and an exceptionally large Master Suite which can comfortably accommodate 2 extra full size single beds, so perfect for a family of 4. All bedrooms have individually controlled air-conditioning units which also provide warmth in the cooler months.

The split level open plan lounge and dining area is south facing with large windows overlooking the garden, swimming pool and ocean. Outside on the terrace is another dining table and a fixed barbecue, ideal for dinning al fresco. Surrounding the villa is plenty of space for youngsters to run. There are 8 sun beds to laze around the 12 metre swimming pool, and you even have your own private 'Miradouro' (viewpoint), to watch the passing ships. All in all a first class villa that will not disappoint.

In addition to all the facilities at the villa you also have complementary use of all facilities at the Albatroz Beach & Yacht Club, seven minutes drive away, including access to the sea, sea water pools, fresh water pool and tennis court (

The village of Caniço is about a 20 minute walk up hill and there is a regular bus service. There you have the main supermarket, chemist, post-office and a small shopping centre and yet more restaurants. Central to the village is the church and its square, where you can sit with a cup of tea or something stronger and watch the world pass by.

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.

    Thank you for your kind words about Villa Albatroz. Kind Regards, António

    Excellent house in a stunning setting overlooking the sea. Really spacious - each bedroom has its own ensuite. Kitchen good and the welcome pack is always kind. We were met at the house by the representative after calling from the airport as requested. Pool was lovely and we paid for heating as it was February - worth every penny as it made the pool useable. There are a few restaurants in walking distance as well as a shop, but you need a car here in reality if you want to visit anywhere. A quiet location at the end of a cul de sac. I saw a review saying it was a little tired and that's probably a fair comment, but I would absolutely recommend it. It's probably not a great house for toddlers because of the garden slope and steps to the pool.

    A beautiful, spacious villa set in a calm, quiet location with amazing sea views. The house is very well-equipped and the service provided is rapid and efficient. We can highly recommend this villa for a peaceful holiday.

    Thank you!

    The villa is wonderful and you can see the ocean cliffs from the backyard, a very relaxing, spacious and beautiful home. The only downside is the pool temperature - the water was cold - and the Canico neighborhood from Madeira is the most windy in the island. Probably not a big issue during July/August months.

    Many thanks for your nice comments, see you soon

    What a wonderful house! Villa Albatroz sits on a cliff with stunning views of the ocean. The house is big enough for two families with 4 en suite bed rooms. Our kids really enjoyed the heated pool, which though it requires an extra charge was worth it for us in the middle of the winter. The area is quiet, but within convenient distance from the facilities in Funchal. There are a couple of up-scale hotels nearby and therefore there are several pretty good restaurants nearby.

    Great comments - thank you . Delighted you enjoyed the villa

    Fabulous Christmas stay. Large, modern and well maintained villa in peaceful location at end of cul-de-sac. Minimal traffic noise. Terrific views from lounge, two bedrooms and garden. Brilliant setting on cliff edge with fantastic ocean views to desertas isles, especially glorious sunrises. Private and peaceful rear garden with sound of sea and birds. Clean and homely. Smallish kitchen but cosy with electric cooker, dishwasher and fridge freezer. Very large king size master bed with terrace and sea views. Slept well. 4 en-suite bedrooms with marble wash basins. Bathroom plumbing fast and reliable. Individual air on/heating in every room. Electric front gate and parking near front door on level for bringing in shopping without steps. Owned by 5 star Albatroz Hotel who provide complimentary airport transfers 8 minutes to villa. Complimentary use of hotel pools and facilities. Staff at hotel very friendly and helpful with queries and maintenance man attended very promptly to resolve a couple of issues. 15 minute drive to Funchal. Enjoyed wonderful mountain and levada walks on this beautiful island. Staff at Our Madeira very helpful with bookings and speedy replies. Already booked Villa Albatroz again!

    Our stay at the Villa Albatroz
    The Villa Albatroz is exactly what we wanted. Spacious and with a fantastic view. There were only two things that we could complain about. We had to wait ages for someone to come and let us in even though we phoned from the airport to say that we'd arrived. The second thing was that we arrived on a Tuesday but the pool wasn't cleaned until the following Thursday. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can heartily recommend it to anyone else.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We will discuss the issues you have raised with the owner, as normal everything at Villa Albatroz is tip top.
    Traumhaft gelegen

    Sehr sauber und ordentlich gepflegt, mit zusätzlicher Reinigung während unseres Aufenthaltes, tolles Swimmingpool und herrliche Sonnenecke mit Blick auf den Atlantik. Weiteres Plus: kostenloser Transfer vom Flughafen zum Haus!

    Vielen Danke
    Villa Albatroz ist eine wunderbare Oase im leider kalten Madeira

    Das großzügige Haus und der herrliche begrünte Garten mit großem Pool in atemberaubender Lage an der Steilküste von Canico de Beixo wurden 10 Tage zu einem traumhaften und ruhigen Domicil, um das uns Freunde, die uns besuchten, zu Recht beneideten. Wir waren 5 Personen, aber auch zu 8 hätte man mit 4 Schlafzimmern, 4 Bädern und 1 Gäste-WC bei bestens eingerichteter Küche (nur ein Tablett und ein Oelpinsel fehlten) und großzügigem Wohnbereich viel Platz gehabt! Wir können Villa Albatroz ohne Vorbehalte für einen entspannten Ferienaufenthalt empfehlen! Friedrich-K. Winkler

    Beautiful villa

    We all loved this villa and it has everything you need. It is so nice you could spend the whole week in the villa without going out. I would say a car is needed if you like to go into Funchell as it is too far to walk but you can get taxis easy enough. There are a couple of bars within walking distance but quite steep so a car is needed really.

    Einmalige Sonnenecke mit fantastischem Blick auf das Meer!
    Sehr sauber und zweckmäßig eingerichtet, haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Besonders toll: der Zimmerservice, der einmal kam und u.a. die Betten neu bezog und Handtücher wechselte.

    Amazing villa in a breathtaking location!

    This villa is in a breathtaking location! It's located on a cliff side giving you AMAZING views and a perfect spot to relax in. When we arrived the villa was very clean and the fridge was full with the essentials (bread, butter, jam etc) for the first day or two which we really appreciated! We stayed there with a group of our friends last July and it was one of the best holidays we've ever been on. The staff which was in contact with us was of a very high standard helping us out with any needs or questions we had. The transfer from the airport was very fast and the villa is located very close to local shops and restaurants. It's also about 30min (by bus) away from a big town centre. You can also use the hotel which is connected to the villa and use their facilities like the swimming pools or the jacuzzi and restaurant. The hotel staff will help you with that too ordering you a taxi there and back. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone who loves a relaxing holiday! Like I mentioned before the whole experience was amazing and we look forward to returning in the future.

    Ein Traumhaus
    Wer einmal abschalten möchte und für 8 Personen ein Domizil auf Madeira sucht, dem kann ich die Villa Albatroz nur empfehlen! Wir waren 8 Erwachsene (4 Paare) und jedes Paar hatte sein Zimmer mit Doppelbett und eigenem Bad. Besonders schön ist die Suite, die einen eigenen großen Balkon hat. Das Wohnzimmer mit zusätzlichem Essbereich ist groß und geräumig, die Terrasse mit Garten und Pool und Blick aufs Meer einfach schön! Unterhalb vom Pool (ein schön großer Pool, in dem man wirklich schwimmen kann) ist ein kleiner Ausichtsplatz - hier auf seiner Liege zu liegen und die Seele baumeln zu lassen, ist Erholung pur) Die Villa ist so wie beschrieben und die Vermietung hat einwandfrei geklappt. Wir wurden am Flughafen abgeholt und sogar am Abreisetag morgens um 4 Uhr früh an Karfreitag abgeholt und zum Flughafen gebracht. Am Ankunftstag hatten wir sogar alle Zutaten für ein Frühstück als Empfang - Ich kann nichts Negatives finden und würde immer wieder diese Villa buchen!

    Second time we have stayed in this villa and it wont be the last, The villa and its location make for a superb place to relax. The organisation of Our Maderia from booking transfers and care hire delivered to the minute all help on the travel day. An excellent property exactly as described and excellent location also as described. I would reccomend to anybody though i hope not too many take up the option as we will want to return next year
