“Lovely property in peaceful surroundings”
Reviewed 22 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We had a lovely stay at this property. Miguel met us on arrival and showed us round this beautiful villa (only 2 of us but plenty of room for more!). Miguel gave us all the information we needed, very helpful. We were left to enjoy our holiday but had contact details if we had any problems. The taxi driver who picked us up at airport and collected us at end of holiday was excellent too, all arranged by Luis. Hill up to villa is very steep but after couple of days, going down was no problem and getting taxi home was very easy if we weren't up for the climb! All in all a lovely holiday in Madeira. Lovely meals had in old town and town centre. Thank you Luis!

“Fabulous House”
Reviewed 21 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

What a fantastic house, there were 8 people staying for the week. It had everything, the kitchen provided anything you needed, from bottle opener to tooth picks.
The bedrooms well maintained and lovely views from all of the windows, with the exception of the downstairs bedroom.
Downstairs was a lovely shaded room which housed almost a contained flat including a pool table.
Lovely outside area in 2 parts, 1 seating area outside living room and another down below where there are seats and a play area for children.
It was a 10 minute walk into town down hill, coming back up is extremely steep but you can get a taxi for 6 euros. We walked up everyday which kept us fit, a bit hard when the sun is blazing down on you.
A short walk up the hill is a lovely bar, everyone very friendly, even the dog.
Luis the owner of the house was a great laid back person and very accommodating.
Get it booked and go you will not regret it.

“Second family holiday to this beautiful, well located house in Funchal”
Reviewed 21 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

Revisited Casas da Martas for a week's holiday following a short break there last year. Pleased to report that the house is still superb and provides a spacious and peaceful location within easy walking distance of the old town and Rua Santa Maria's restaurants. Despite picking up a horrid cold on the journey we had a great week, three generations stayed at the house and there is plenty of room and privacy for families and friends. We enjoyed cooking in the excellent kitchen which is very well equipped. The local produce is fresh and seasonal so worth exploring small food shops and markets... try the Sunday farmers market in Serra de Santo. For evening eating out Rua de Santa Maria has some good Madeira food and makes a nice evening stroll...try the mint or passion fruit Poncha in Vende Velho...tastes fab and has a kick! Thank you Luis and his helpful, friendly colleague who welcomed us on our arrival (so sorry I don't remember her name). We highly recommend this house in beautiful Funchal.

“Great house for excellent New Year in Funchal”
Reviewed 11 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

This was a great house for our stay in Funchal over New Year - spacious, nice terrace to relax on and one of the best equipped kitchens I have come across. Plus a good view of the wonderful fireworks on New Years Eve.
Very convenient for Funchal centre, and even a great cafe 50m up the road.
No problems, and definitely hope to be back!

“Beautiful house in a great location.”
Reviewed 1 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We were 3 retired couples staying in this house for 7 nights. We found the house very spacious with plenty of bedrooms. The 3 bedrooms we used all had very modern spacious ensuite washrooms.
Our host Luis was very nice and met us nearby to show us where the house was and gave us a thorough tour of this beautiful property.
The location was excellent with just a 10 minute walk to the downtown area of Funchal which is where the market is and the cruise ships dock. Lots of bars and restaurants with outdoor cafes. The road back to the house was very steep so make sure you have good walking shoes or take a taxi which is only about 5 Euros.
Our only complaints were that the beds are even smaller than our double beds in North America. Also, whenever you moved on the mattress which was sitting on a piece of particle board it was very noisy. As we are not small people this made it very difficult to get any sleep.
