“Not as expected”

Joana communicated easily. Ernesto welcomed us warmly and showed us around the house which was furnished tastefully and exactly as described. The views are indeed spectacular.
It became immediately clear to us that the sentence declaring that there is no private backyard means that you are surrounded 360 degrees by a lot of people churning around as they go to and from the beach, the tidal pool, and the jetty/water break. The house is in the parking lot for these 3 attractions. When you open the big doors for air (there are no other windows downstairs and the ones upstairs are small and at the top of the wall), people try to come in because it looks like an interesting place - maybe a restaurant or shop or museum.
In the evening it empties out but it is a dark and secluded parking lot and very inviting for people who don't want to be seen.
We sat outside in the evening and watched the sea in relative quiet. I went inside and my wife came in a few minutes later quite shaken after discovering a man who had been sitting in the shadows watching her.
So we bailed on the rest of our reservation, and took the hit on the cost.
The pictures of the outside of the property do not represent the true status of the daytime traffic (human and automotive), and "no private backyard" should read "house is situated in middle of a public sidewalk bordering a parking lot for 30 cars"
There are a few reviews that mentioned this, so bad on us for not reading enough.

Management Response

Thank you for your review Mr. Haim!
The location is as described very public, It's a shame it didn't fit you're expectations. Also take some time to study the culture you are visiting, for example in the Netherlands they have huge windows facing the sidewalk and it doesn't mean people will stare.
Kind regards,
Joana

“Most likely the best place of the north coast of Madeira”
Reviewed 12 February 2019 for a stay in September 2018

Fantastic setting and gorgeous, super clean and heartwarming lodge! The unbelivable "jurassic park" mountain scenario this priceless sence of cozyness at this place, where the serenity of the sea will just let you float away.

“The best in the island”
Reviewed 28 September 2018 for a stay in September 2018

An awesome place and a must to visit. Life is built on experiences and this is one of the best so far. Where the moutains kiss the sea with a very cosy beach, with an Epic sunset sunrise and moonlight that will let you rest and recharge your energies and soul! The host is 5 stars! Thank you for everything!

“The perfect spot!”
Reviewed 19 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Absolutely brilliant location, with fantastic views and great energy! A very nice house in a very nice village, perfect to stay some days to relax and get inspired by the mind blowing landscape, the sea and the mountains.
The people were always very nice, the stay was awesome and I absolutely look forward to come back.
For sure one of the great spots of the island so far.

“What a unique stay”
Reviewed 7 March 2018 for a stay in September 2017

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.
