Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Beautiful view but no privacy
The view is definitely lovely and the house is very nice and comfortable. We loved it- except from 10.a.m. to 7 p.m. During this time loads of tourists are walking round the house, looking inside, sometimes even trying to enter. There is no privacy at all, so we decided to leave the house before 10 a.m. and did not return before 7.p.m. If you aren´t afraid of that, we can recommend this place, it´s very unique and the landlady and her parents were very friendly. If you are looking for privacy, you should look for something else.

Casa do Cais ...Uau
Uma das minhas melhores escapadinhas de sempre. Longe da cidade , perto do mar e no melhor local, foi esta minha experiencia na Casa do Cais . Esta fica num local absolutamente espetacular ,com o som do mar sempre presente , foi terapia aos meus ouvidos . Fica no Seixal-Porto Moniz, a uma curta distancia do Funchal , lugar que recumendo a todos. A casa é de uma beleza maravilhosa , quando lá entrei senti me tão entusiamada , tinha uma arquitetura muito diferente de tudo aquilo que já tinha visto antes, sala é uma espaço aberto , quartos são grandes e com vista mar . A casa fica "literalmente "na praia,foi a melhor surpresa.Claro que tenho que mencionar tambem que as pessoas do sitio são muito agradaveis e simpaticas. 5 Estrelas

The "Dock House" is literally in the sea, it´s a unique location, just love it!
The house has everything you need to spend some quality time with your friends or lover, everything is well thought and practical on the inside! The location is just magic, you can wake up whit the sea around you and having a beautiful view of all the mountains in the north coast of the island, if you want to swim there is a natural swimming pool 3 meters from the house, and if you prefer the ocean the sand beach is 10 meters away from the house! The parking area is right next to the house! If you prefer to eat out the local restaurants have all the traditional food, cooked with local products, at great prices! Hope you enjoy as much as I did!
