“A large,very comfortable house perfect if you have teenagers”
Reviewed January 1, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We spent Christmas 2017 here. 2 families with 2 16 year olds and 2 18 year olds. Really perfect for them. Great WiFi, warm pool for swimming every day and the games room (snooker,baby football) was in constant use. Plenty of bathrooms and lots of hot water. The house had Christmas decorations up and we had a lovely stay. 10 minutes walk to the nearest massive and excellent supermarket. An easy downhill 40 minute walk to the centre of Funchal, and easy to get a taxi back for €15 (for both families in a people carrier). We couldn’t have had a nicer holiday - thank you very much.

“Home from Home. Can't wait to return”
Reviewed November 24, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Sometimes you view villas online and think it can never be as good as it looks. That's where this villa is wrong. It's as good --- if not better. Clean, modern, spacious, private, and with amazing views over Funchal.
From the moment we were given a warm welcome from Petronella herself, things were amazing in this property. It has a private gated entrance with, secure parking for the car on the front drive. The villa is set over 3 levels, with a games room (pool table, table football, matted yoga area and a pull-up bar for those looking to do exercise) on the ground floor. There's also a bedroom down here with shower room but we never used it.
Middle (main) floor houses the amazing living area and kitchen and a double bedroom, with lots of access to the pool area. The kitchen is equipped with everything you'd ever need, and the TV has all international channels along with a DVD player and a PlayStation3. Upstairs are 3 further double bedrooms, all with their own doors to a large outdoor terrace.
The pool area was simply fantastic. A great pool, lots of inflatable toys (the kids loved them), hammock and outdoor dining space, and even a charcoal BBQ.
Location itself isn't in the centre of Funchal but on the upper outskirts next to the motorway. We couldn't hear any traffic and it was peaceful at night. There's a supermarket 5 minutes drive away and the city centre is just 15 minutes away by car, or a short taxi hop away.
Many people want to be right in the action on holiday, but we would advise staying out here, relaxing and simply taking transport (even the local bus) down into the centre.
Can't recommend this highly enough. An amazing property, and we can't wait to go back.

“Excellent, well kept villa, suitable for large family party.”

Great week spent by our family. Petronella was very helpful with our numerous requests for taxis and advice on restaurants, supermarkets, etc. Villa is spacious and very well equipped. Outside patio and pool great space to relax and enjoy Madeiran weather.

“A beautiful peaceful family villa”
Reviewed June 6, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We have all returned from a wonderful holiday due in no small part to an ideal villa. There was a large age range in the party from 5 months to over sixty but the space and set up was ideal. A cot, High chair, Baby bouncer, toys and the Disney channel were provided for the children, while the adults enjoyed playing pool and table football. There was plenty of space for us all to enjoy ourselves and the pool was lovely to use. We did as asked and kept the cover on when we were not using it so it retained its heat and cleanness.
Everything we needed was provided in the kitchen and we loved eating outside on the patio area. We had lovely meals cooked on the brick barbeque.
The whole villa was beautiful with large rooms catering for all our needs. The owner met us and showed us round then regularly kept in touch to check we were enjoying ourselves, she could not have been more helpful.
We hired two cars, which easily fitted into the large front courtyard behind secure gates but we did have to go through a narrow entrance and passage to reach it so we were pleased we had not chosen to hire a people carrier.
Before we went we were concerned about how close the villa was to the motorway but we were amazed how quiet and peaceful it was. We were able to easily reach all areas of the island quickly.
I would recommend this villa to any family group.

person found this review helpful

A total of 12 of us (10 adults, 2 children) stayed at this villa. The property was perfect for us and had all the amenities we needed (we particularly loved the kitchen/living room area and pool!). The location was close to the local supermarket and also the centre of Funchal, which is only a short bus or cab ride away. The owners were very helpful and stayed in touch to ensure we had everything we needed. Overall, we're very pleased and would certainly recommend to others!

“The best choice for nice days on Madeira!”
Reviewed May 27, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our stay at Casa Petronella was great. It looks exactly like we've seen on the pictures. It's also perfectly for children. The son of my friend (5 y/o) was very happy there!

Petronella and Jorge supported us the whole stay on madeira. They've booked some of our trips or our car and they've helped us with every problem. Everything was very uncomplicated.

So for wonderful holidays on Madeira we will advise to choose this house. We would like to come back in a few years to hike on Madeira.

Many thank's to Petronella and Jorge for those great holidays.

Best regards!

Laura, Jonah and Sven
