Some nice features but overall mixed feelings

  • 3 of 5

We booked the house from April 22nd until April 30th.

The house is certainly no standard villa with all boating decorations and the 'outside' living and sleeping area. The village of Arco da Calheta isvery quiet, some small minimarkets and local bars in walking distance.

The owner Charlie has a relaxed/laidback attitude but is helpfull in giving tips about things to see/do and drawing maps for getting there.

On one early morning heavy rains caused severe leakages in the living area and cabin bedroom. A lot of our clothes and other stuff got wet, and we were forced to put everything in our suitcases...

After reporting the issue to Charlie, it took quiet some time (and anger from our side) for him to take our remarks in and do something about it. Luckily the rain stopped, and after that a 'dehumidifier' machine was placed in the room and a new mattress was put on the bed. After some coercion from our side Charlie also promised to provide alternative (hotel) shelter if the rain/leakage would reoccur.

Fortunately we finally had some hours of sunshine to dry all wet clothes, and also to brigthen our mood. But the horror wasn't over yet: at 01.00 another thunderstorm caused leakages again for some hours during the night. Lluckily not as bad as the previous night and we were better prepared ourselves this time. But it robbed us (again) from a good nights sleep.

The next day we went for a drive and some sightseeing, and in the afternoon Charlie came by for a chat. We complained about the returning leakages, but he was not at all receptive to our remarks. According to him we should have woken him up for reporting the issue immediately. He kept on saying he is not responsible for the unusable weather conditions , something we did not disagree on.

In our perspective he simply failed in being a good host: when we reported our leakages the first time, he counterparted with his own bedroom leakages and also told a story about a big flood in Funchal some years ago that caused a high level of casualties. Indeed a very sad story, but not something you expect as a paying guest when your bedroom has turned in to a bathroom.

One other annoying fact is the occasional piles of poo from the owner's dog, and the owner let it stay there. So, especially in the dark, you have to be aware where yout put your feet.

All things considered, we would recommend this house if you don't mind the dog poo, a wet bed on the occasion and a host who doesn't seem to care much.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I, 13 of us altogether stayed at the villa for 3 weeks.

The villa was fantastic with lots of character and a fab rustic cabin/clubhouse by the pool.

There was plenty of room for us all and Charlie and Maria were lovely and always helpful.

Mako the dog was a star and loved all the children.

Car hire is recommended to explore the island although the taxis are reasonable if just traveling locally.

We would definitely return.

Thanks Charlie and Maria for a great holiday!

Lovely comfy rustic villa.

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a brilliant ten day holiday in this beautiful place. We are a family of five, two adults, a daughter of ten and twin boys aged four. Plus my parents and brother with his partner. It was perfect for us, a great Base to explore the island, a lovely private pool and the quirky cabin kitchen and dining area for the evenings. We felt at home and relaxed straight away when we were met by Charlie who lives at the other side of the house. We hired cars, which is essential here as it is in a village, but also so we could see all the things this beautiful island has to offer. Would definitely recommend the property, the only trouble we found was with this website but as soon as you're put in touch with Charlie then you're in safe hands! Thank you again!

Reactie van de eigenaar Well it is so rewarding to have had happy guests it means a lot to us . The children were in seventh heaven here ,and hardly got out of the pool, needless to say they were reluctant to leave , and a few tears on the going there was ! great kids ! This villa is situated in a lovely location with the sea in front ,and the mountains behind with all the graces of a quiet country house . The website of home and away has been a bit of a problem ! it has become quite difficult to use both for the guests + myself , But it is still the best ,and the safest to use ! so stay with it okay . Best from us in Madeira Charlie and Carminha

Lovely week had by all

  • 4 of 5

We are just back from a week's stay with Charlie and Maria.

We were a mixed family of 8. 2 adults, one OAP , 2 under 12's and 3 teenagers. Charlie's villa was the perfect base for us and offered flexible accommodation to suit our needs. The villa is clean and very spacious. The outside cooking and bar area was a hit and perfectly set off by lovely lights.

Charlie and Maria were great hosts and very helpful. I wasn't going to hire a car but get taxis from the airport but Charlie made it clear we needed a car. Thank god he did as it was essential. I would also recommend a diesel car with a bit power as the roads are steep!

Charlie popped in every evening to make sure we were all good and to give any instructions/suggestions for the next days activities. His hand drawn maps made it easy for us to get about. The waterfalls are a must see but I recommend getting the taxi bus back up the hill to the car park after your walk. At 3 euros it is worth every penny!

We loved our time in the villa. It is a really quirky villa with lots of drift wood and art. It was the perfect villa for outside dinning and evening drinks. There is a local shop and a supermarket near by and a nice beach at the very bottom of the hill with nice cafe's by the beach.

We loved every minute of our week. We also loved our wee mascot Meko who popped in to see us too - Charlie's lovely friendly dog who just adores kids.

The villa is situated in a quiet spot but less than 25 min away from all attractions each way in the car. Funchal shopping was a hit with the teenagers. They spent a fortune on clothes.

Thanks for being such great hosts Charlie and Maria.

PS Maria, I will visit soon for a yoga session or two by the pool :)

Best wishes

Jayne and the gang

Charlie saved our holiday!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely man and superb villa! After our cruise ship "Black Watch" caught fire in the mid atlantic en-route from The Azores to Madeira we found ourselves stranded in Funchal, with no power on board ship, faced with our cruise holiday being curtailed and being flown home. We were a family of 9, having a really great time up until the fire, only 1 week into our 2 week holiday, and we didn't want our holiday to end so soon. I Googled for a 5-bed villa in Madeira and this is how I found Charlie and his lovely holiday villa. It was perfect for us & available for the few days we needed it. Unable to book online, I found Charlie's phone number, explained our situation and couldn't have hoped for a more helpful person on the other end of the phone! Not only did he arrange to get the villa ready that afternoon for us, he sent a minibus to meet us at the port and take us to a supermarket for valuable supplies on the way to the villa, and when we arrived he even lit the BBQ for us! The villa was perfect for our group, ages ranged from 23 to 61 and we all enjoyed the facilities; especially the pool, feature BBQ, and the well equipped kitchen area in the cabin by the pool with 2 fridges (1 for beers, the other for food! :-). Under unexpected circumstances we found Charlie's villa, but we would definitely return! Thank you Charlie!
