I simply loved to stay over. The location is absolutely great for a awesome and calm retreat. The 2 step away beautiful beach, the landscape, those sound of the waves, the local food and north coast of Madeira trip makes this propriety unique for rental to have so.
Definitely so recommend the Dock house.
A very cozy house with fantastic views over the north coast. Close to the sea and the mountains, is a fantastic retreat to end the days of island tours. Hope to return soon.
Is on the 1st place on my "dream places where i've been" list. <3
The house is amazing, the location wonderful, and in august the weather... magnific. = )
We had 4 nice days in Seixal - and the service was great. The dock house is a charming and different place. We had not read the material too well, so it was a surprise to us that the whole house is one big room - the bedrooms having one open side to the downstairs room. We're sensitive sleepers, so we took an ekstra room at the nearby and inexpensive hotel. Situated on the dock, the house offers a fantastic opportunity to be living with and by the see. A drawback to this is that the dock is a public place day and night, which at two occasions meant interrupted sleep. The equipment is functional and Seixal offers a nice walk: Caminho do Chão da Ribeira and free natural pools. But the major attraction is the sea.
By the time we arrived here we had travelled a lot, had colds and were in need of rest and relaxation, so that my colour my review.
I should have paid much more attention to a review posted here on TA in January 2017 saying that this would be a good spot for adventurous travellers, not for a relaxing get-away. We had booked three nights but left after one. We were very put off by tourists actually walking right into the house! Not relaxing and didn't make us feel safe and secure in any way.
The one double bed upstairs is NOT big enough for two nearly 6-feet tall people. My husband took that bed and I "slept" in a tiny very uncomfortable old, sagging single. When I moved the bed away from the wall to plug in a reading lamp, the floor was filthy. The bathroom in between the two buildings smelled "funky."
The kitchen and living area downstairs are dated but serviceable.
The owner, Joana is very, very kind and responsive. Her friend and property manager who checked us in was also very nice. There is a book in the apartment outlining nearby attractions. This place just simply was not for us. If you're okay "roughing it" a bit, and not really having any privacy, then this is for you. The location right on the protected ocean pools is gorgeous.
