This delightful guesthouse felt like a home away from home. The owners made us feel so welcome and always went the extra mile to make sure that we were as comfortable as possible! We were delighted to learn that each room had a complementary bar fridge – what a treat! The views are breath taking and the gardens are beautiful!...

Unfortunately their was a problem with our booking and we ended up in the standard room - which was actually also a nice room (no view though)! The guesthouse is great, the personal attention and dedication of the hostst is wonderful and the views from the pool, lounge and deck are breathtaking. Definitely worth a visit!

This is a charming guest house with friendly hosts in quiet part of the island. It's location is great for walking - there is access to the levada just a few hundred yards away from the guest house. The breakfasts are a lovely, lazy affair with a great buffet, proper tea and beautifully cooked eggs. It's a great break away...

We've just got back from a lovely week away in Maderia staying in the Architect's Beach Cottage. The directions and instructions to get to the property were very clear and easy to follow.

We have just spent a fabulously relaxing week at the Architect's Beach Cottage. It is all that the website says, and lots more. The views are absolutely spectacular, and the terrace is large and completely private. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and furnished.
