Thanks to the managers Ivor and Paul for a great stay! We have always stayed in Funchal and fancied a change and chose the south coast..west.The village was pretty with a fishing harbour and the locals were friendly. The village was not spoilt by hotels. We ate in the local restaurants a few times which were good. We chose fish most of the time and it was fresh and delicious! The house was quiet, large, clean and comfortable with amazing ocean and mountain views from several terraces. The most sout west sunsets in Europe were unmissable from the house sun terraces. We hope to return in 2018 and recommend Sunny House West , Beach House
We stayed there in May 2016 and enjoyed it.
The house is very quiet and well equipped. The kitchen is small, but has four hotplates.
There are a lot of towels for free use and everything is very clean.
Paul and Iva are very helpful and they can give you a lot of infomations.
Don´t forget to stop at the bar "One Love" and the other next behind; for a poncha or caipirinha.
To sit there on the seaside and watch the sunset with a poncha is great.
The beach in Paul do Mare is very stony, and not really possible to walk in.
But there is a nice sandy beach in Calheta. (10 min. drive)
We really enjoyed our stay Sunny House West. The house was clean and well equipped, everything we needed was there. Paul gave us some good information about the island and what to do there. We mostly enjoyed the beautiful view from the house at the mountains and the sea, while having a nice barbecue on the balcony!
We had a wonderful week in Madeira thanks to the ideal location of this house in Paul do Mar. The rooms were clean and tidy, and the house comes equipped with everything you could need to enjoy your time here. Paul and Iva were very helpful in providing tips and information on things to see, both prior to and during our visit. I would recommend this place to any couple or family looking for a homely place within reach of some great walks and close to the ocean.
If you are looking to take an adventure in Maderia, prefer to be off the tourist track and want to experience more of the local feel of a place, go straight to Sunny House in Paul Do Mar. The owners of the property, Paul and Iva assisted us in making our stay as easy and as pleasurable as possible by pre-booking a taxi from the airport; after a few days helping us locate and obtain a rental car from a reputable agent (who also delivered it to us) and also supplied us with delicious fresh fruit from the area (bananas/passion fruit and mango) and a delicious bottle of wine on arrival. The property was exactly as we had hoped it would be and it was very easy to settle in and make a home there for 2 weeks. Lots of linen and towels (including beach towels) were supplied and the rooms were lovely and clean. At the top of the house, there is a sun room including a sun terrace which gave stunning views of the ocean and the mountains at the back. We stayed in the Sunny House West property and had a bird's eye view of the amazing Maderian sunsets. The house still retained privacy even when more guests arrived to stay at Sunny House East because of the top floor terrace and a slightly different lay-out. The small kitchen was really well equipped and the living room has a lovely modern leather sofa and chair and a large TV. The village has an excellent local restaurant, a small mini-market and a couple of bars but don't expect a beach....there are not many of them around the Island but the man-made beach at Cahleta, about a 15 minute drive away was good for a dip as it did get very hot. This is a local village with a few tourists and you can be very well catered for here for a few days. But to make the most of the Island you would be recommended to get a car as there are fantastic trips to make just up the road (and wonderful walking along local lavada trails). Nowhere is far away using the fast roads and tunnels but for more sensational scenery you need to get up in the mountains.
In our opinion, the property represents excellent value for money and is very comfortable. We would definitely go back there again.
John and Sheila (UK)
For us it was the perfect location, the perfect time and perfect 10 days. The place is quiet and you can get to bed with the roaring of the sea in the background. There is a very good restaurant 500m away and you can walk near the ocean to it (and back). A good swimmer which is not afraid about 18 Celsius water temperature can swim with respecting the oceans power. A not so swimmer can drive to a beach a few minutes away.
I can write a lot of more lines but as remarked in the title: take it if you can
