    About this property

    Outstanding Views/spacious/ Wi-fi Internet/tv/bbq/gym/licensed

    …and yet easy, quick access to the centre of Funchal and promenade, only 10 minutes by car. Recently I put Air conditioners which doubles as heating too, in every room. It’s the ideal house for sun, quietness and nature lovers, near beautiful eucalyptus forest for daily walks. Thanks to wood flooring throughout and ventilated Venetian window shutters a comfortable temperature inside the apartment is always pleasant, even on the hottest days. It is light and airy thanks to floor to ceiling French windows throughout. Recently I installed air conditioner and heating in every room. The 3 bedrooms Apartment in Casa Alegra, a substantial, fantastically appointed modern detached house on the central, sunny hill, is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. It is the only one Apartment to rent in this house. You will find it very quiet and private. It has incredible views over the bay of Funchal and is the perfect base for exploring the whole island. If you want to spend most of your time in almost traffic free area, and clean air, while enjoying spectacular views over the hills, town, Harbor and sea, then this is the place for you. The internal living accommodation is 200m2 (square meters) over two floors (gym and barbecue area are in addition to this). The spacious sitting room, with real log fireplace and French windows is open plan to the dining room and opens onto the surrounding covered terraces. There is a large flat screen television with cable access (many language channels), fast Internet and some DVDs, books and magazines for guests to enjoy. There are 4 terraces: each bedroom has a terrace with view of the sea, hills, town below and the harbor. All the rooms have French windows, leading onto terraces. In each bedroom are curtains, daylight blackout curtains facility, and ventilated shatters. Each bedroom has a large, double wardrobe. The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom. There is one more bathroom and one further cloakroom / WCs. The kitchen is a spacious, modern, fully equipped with all the necessary appliances and utensils: induction hob, big and small oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, coffee maker, blender, toaster and so on. Outside there is cultivated garden, two generous terraces, where you can enjoy magnificent views, dine outside in the sun, then, there are loungers and hammock for lazy afternoons and a traditional stone barbecue area. The terraces are the perfect place to enjoy Madeira's famous New Year's fireworks. Located in a tranquil, upmarket residential area, Casa Alegra is only 10 minutes drive by car from the center of Funchal with its restaurants, art and culture or 20 minutes by bus. One of the biggest Supermarkets in Funchal is only 5 minutes drive from the house. Drive to the beach is about 15 minutes. The walkers will enjoy local forest, when they can’t be bothered to go for lengthy Levada walks Madeira is famous for. Every part of island is within easy reach and renting a car is highly recommended for enjoying all the best that the beautiful island of Madeira has to offer. IMPORTANT NOTES Cancellation policy: 100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date. This is relevant to deposit which you pay now and that’s why I ask for a minimum deposit. As for balance you are asked to pay only 2 weeks before arrival. Arrivals welcome on any day. The time of arrival and departure is flexible too. Beach towels are supplied for 6 people and of course bath towels too. You don't need to bring any of yours. Hairdryer is supplied as well. No smoking on the premises, except for one outside terrace, further from the living areas, where you can smoke. There are supplies of guidebooks and local maps for initial use. A baby and toddler’s cot is available, if required, (please request when booking). Airport transfers and general taxi services can be arranged on request. Any additional changes after booking, like adding extra people or changing dates has to be dealt with HomeAway and not with me directly. Only Agency you booked with can deal with these changes and adjust the bill accordingly. The house is registered and licensed with Madeira’s Authorities and registration number is: ALOJAMENTO LOCAL, Numero 30764/AL.

    4/5 Good

      A great location with superb views necessary to have a car.

      Owner very friendly and informative and provides everything you need for a great holiday. If you want to relax with great views it is ideal. Does not take long to go anywhere as only a 5 minute drive down to the Rapida. Many thanks.

      5/5 Excellent

        Well-appointed villa with fine views

        Enisa was a very welcoming and attentive host who was anxious to ensure that we enjoyed our stay in Madeira and we certainly did. Living in her beautiful, spacious and well-equipped house, with a hired car to explore the scenic island, a pleasant, relaxing holiday is guaranteed.

        5/5 Excellent

          Absolutely everything was perfect

          The house is exactly as described and even nicer. There is plenty of space and enough dishes, pots, pans, appliances, etc to cook your entire Christmas dinner. The host was always available, extremely helpful and friendly, and even offered to watch our kids while my wife and I went for a run up in the mountains. We really enjoyed chatting with her, but she also will respect your privacy if you prefer. The views over Funchal are beautiful. The wifi worked well. I really can't think of anything but positive feedback. Renting a car is a must. There is a bus stop close to the house, but we never used it. If you want flexibility and ease, then you need a car. The road up to the house is very steep, but this is true of almost all roads in Madeira. With the car, we could be in the center of Funchal in about 10-15 minutes, even less to get on the East-West highway. Access from the airport was easy (again, with a rented car). We were able to explore pretty much the entire island from this starting point. Myself, my wife, and our two young children highly recommend this holiday home!

          4/5 Good

            Excellent spacious property

            Lovely position comfortable well equipped house with helpful owner nearby.

            5/5 Excellent

              Best of both Worlds

              This is an exceptional property which offers the ideal location high above Funchal. If you like heat and action go down the hill into the city and if you like to stay cool then sit on the balcony and take in the fabulous panorama of mountains and sea. There is a huge amount of space, with a corner or balcony to suit everyone and excellent facilities including a gym. If you are keen to see more of this spectacular island then the main road access is ten minutes drive away. It is possible to stay without a car and use buses/taxis but I wouldn't miss the incredible variety of landscapes on offer within short driving distances. Enisa was the perfect host- even thoughtfully making dinner for us when we arrived late and we are grateful to her for allowing us the use of her beautiful home and passing on vital tips on what to see and do. Couldn't ask for a better stay and hope to return soon.
