About this listing

Here you can enjoy a priveleged space right on the sea front. Open the door and smell the sea! Watch beautiful sunsets from the garden, lounging on the garden chairs and fall asleep to the softly pounding waves - simply paradise! Just you and nature, no traffic, no noise, fresh air and sweet garden scents.
The bedroom has a private bathroom and a patio overlooking the sea. A second bedroom (with 2 single beds) for guests in excess of two people available if needed. (at an extra cost of 12 euros per person per night – ask about the conditions in your pre booking messages.) The bedroom doors open onto a beautiful green lawn and garden.
Cable TV with a range of international channels is available in your room.
Car Parking space. Free Internet Wireless Access. Guests are welcome all around the house and they enjoy a private terrace with sea and mountain views perfect for reading, purely contemplating the horizon or sunbathing! If you love the sea and swimming, then just throw a towel over your shoulder and walk down to the beach, where you can relax under the palm trees at the local beach bar (Dona Maria).
We will be delighted to interact and guide you to make the most of your holiday experience in Madeira. We will try doing so in a discreet, non-intrusive manner of course, hoping to find the right balance of your preference.
In Terms of Our Location: We are located in a semi-rural area very quiet and peaceful, please do not expect big infrastructural establishments (malls, supermarkets, etc) those are normally in city areas. Nonetheless there are two good supermarkets in the proximities of the village. My house is also within walking distance of good restaurants, a pub, the beach and local church. A walk along the sea side promenade in front of the house is also very nice.
The island enjoys mild weather conditions with bright sunshine all year round. No need for heavy clothing and thick coats though, even during European winter season better to go for layers and a water/wind proof jacket for mountain expeditions.
We provide clean fresh towels for you and bed linnen.
ATM Machine 2 min walking distance.
The fully equiped kitchen can also be used during your stay. (private - not shared). You may also use herbs from the organic herb garden in front of the kitchen, with a selection of parsley, basil, thyme, rosemary ..... etc.
The garden is spacious and colourful - delightful to see all the different plants and flowers in the garden.
Interaction with guests
We are always available to help you in any way, giving you information and basically showing you how the locals live. Discover the traditional cuisine and enjoy the food as a local!
In your room, you will also find a guide book carefully prepared by me, with suggestions of what to try while staying with us, as well as details of what activities to do, information about supermarkets, restaurants etc.
Madalena do Mar is a sunkissed strip of land between the sea and the mountain. Surrounded by banana plantations and a beautiful sea front - ideal for jogging or walking. From november to april, the sun sets directly in front of the house - absolutely breathtaking!
