“If you are not afraid of heights and want to escape then this is the place for you”
Reviewed June 8, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The owner has managed to develop this quaint two up, two down holiday home into a great little get away. Admittedly you will have to be good on your feet to get there, be able to manage many steps and travel with little luggage but you will be rewarded when you do. The 'Viewpoint' does exactly as is proclaimed in the title - the view over Calheta bay is idividual. The terrace overlooks the vegetation below and the sandy enclosure of the bay but you are not overlooked at all. There are subeds to relax on and if you are a little hot then the downstairs shower is perfect to cool down in. The kitchen has a fridge/frezzer, hob, microwave, toaster and microwave and an outside BBQ with fully operational sink units are there for those who wish to cook outside. The owner Mr Nelson will provide you with a key fob that will enable discount on items at the local supermarket so just stock up and chill out. A great little find for both relaxing or touring around the west side of the island. Also great for bird watching. Great supply of hot water in both the showers, lots of crockery and cooking pots/utensils, free wifi, tv and hifi sound system - the owner is lovely and will be there to meet and greet and even carry your luggage for you.

Thank you Ulrike and Roland for the kindness and detail of your comment.
It was a pleasure to welcome you to my house and Madeira Island.
This is indeed a special place, for those who seek peace and contact with nature; the sea, the beach, the sun, the luxuriant vegetation, the sound of the birds and the unforgettable sunsets.
For all this and for what only those who live this place can experience, I can say, it is good to be here.
Thank you once again Ulrike and Roland for coming to the island, living and feeling, a bit of my world.

Danke!
