A lovely big house, perfect for large groups who want a big communal space but also plenty of spaces for people to be on their own to read etc. Beware if coming as 5 couples- there are four big airy double rooms and one very dingy basement double room without a window. However if you don't mind that it comfortably sleeps 13. The location up the hill made for beautiful views and was about a 30 minute walk into town, there's also a taxi rank around the corner during the day. Fatima seemed very kind, and even had snacks and Madeira wine for us on arrival! However communication was very difficult as she doesn't speak any English and none of us spoke Portuguese. It might be worth encouraging her to get an English translator just for the check-in as it was quite long and we had no idea what was going on! There are also two dogs on the premises, one of which was chained up constantly which we found a bit distressing, but that may just be a cultural difference. Overall, great value for the price, not especially fancy but lovely place to spend a relaxing week with friends.
This house is wonderful! Fátima and her husband are very kind! We had a wonderful stay in Funchal. The views are fantastic and the pool is lovely. Two friendly dogs live on the property (outside only) and it was fun having them around. If you rent a car there is plenty of parking. Wonderful stay over all!
Fatima was a very welcoming and hospitable host. There was a language barrier as her English is limited and my Portuguese is very little. She showed us around including local bakery, ATM, bus stop and taxi rank up which is up road from the house. The neighbourhood is quiet minus the dogs people own. The accommodation is very spacious, plenty of room for the 9 of us who stayed, and the rooms were a decent sized. The kitchen and living room are also good size to use. The views were amazing from the house especially during sunrise and sunset. The location of the home is up in the hills, it will take 15min to drive into the main town, going via taxi is the most effective and cheapest for a large group of people. Fatima's dogs Simba and Victoria are lovely and well behaved also Simba is the younger dog who is more hyperactive, not good for people who are scared of dogs.
A perfect house for families with children, even babies. Great view. Sun all day long. A swimming pool for adults and children. Plenty of space. A bakery and taxi just around a corner. Well equipped kitchen. Fatima and her husband Lucas are excellent and experienced hosts. We warmly recommend this house.

Response from Fátima:
Nós pedimos desculpa, mas como viram o incêndio que assolou o Funchal e deixou-nos 6 casas dos arredores totalmente destruídas, incluindo a da nossa vizinha que diáriamente e logo de manhã, varria, limpava, deitava comida ao cão, etc. Como ela deixou de lá habitar, enquanto a sua casa não é reconstruída, cujo processo já está, burocràticamente, em curso, pedimos a vossa compreensão. Esperamos que brevemente tudo fique corroborado. De resto não sentimos mosquitos e as pessoas devem fechar os tapassóis quando têm estão dentro de casa com a luz ligada ! Agradecemos, no entanto a vossa observação e estaremos atentos adentro do que nos cumpre e é possível, pois o Ambiente é nosso e de todos. Enquanto a casa for vossa, sugeríamos também a vossa colaboração adentro do possível, no vosso próprio interesse, como alguns o têm feito. Muito obrigada pela vossa visita. Quando voltarem, certamente os arredores com as Estações, Natureza e a Ajuda humana, esteja mais alegre ! Bem hajam. Muitas Felicidades ! Maria de Fátima
