The location, the facilities, the view - Villa Boa Vista has it all!
With a stunning view of Funchal and the harbor, this villa is located within walking distance (approx. 20 minutes) of the restaurants in Old Town, the waterfront promenade, the cable car to Monte and a range of local shops. Every morning we bought fresh bread for breakfast and most evenings walked into Funchal for meals or to explore. For trips to other parts of the island we rented a car. Parking at the villa was never a problem as it has its own, secure and private garage.
Inside the villa met all of our expectations: clean, spacious, modern, well-furnished and well-equipped, with comfortable beds and ample storage. Most days, after returning from our daily sightseeing and walking trips, we enjoyed the heated pool and what was left of the afternoon sun. When we dined in, the kitchen was well stocked and met the needs of 4 amateur chefs.
Without a doubt, we will return again!
Fabulous villa about 20 mins walk to Downtown Funchal. Located in an elevated position with an amazing view over the harbour and mountains. Never got tired of the view. The villa itself is very modern with every facility you could require in a holiday rental. On arrival villa was extremely clean and we were met by Maria who is the owners local contact who was also very helpful.
The owner provides a video to show directions on how to find the property which is invaluable, watched it a couple of times before we left home and found the property with our hire car with no problem. The same on how to get to a local supermarket would be useful as it took us several attempts to find one.
The pool was well looked after and although a a little chilly didn't stop my daughter swimming in it.
If you want to have a luxury self catering property in Funchal, I can recommend this place.
Fabulous modern villa equipped to a high standard with everything you might need. Our contact at the villa, Maria, was very friendly and helpful and made us feel extremely welcome. Madeira lived up to it's reputation for being a spectacularly beautiful island, especially when we visited the highest point of Pico do Arieiro and the people are very friendly (especially the taxi drivers who we relied upon to bring us back up from the old town!). The location of the villa takes advantage of the fantastic views but a taxi ride back from the old town would be recommended.

My husband and I stayed with our two adult children for a week in this beautiful villa. It is very spacious, spotlessly clean and with every amenity you could wish for. Maria was lovely. She was there to meet us when we arrived and was very friendly and helpful. Lovely pool with stunning views from all rooms. Extremely comfortable beds and a great kitchen with coffee maker, microwave etc. You can walk into town, though the streets are really steep, there isn't much in the way of pavements and the cars whizz by really close! There is a bus stop but I'm not sure how often the buses run. Its useful to get a taxi back , after doing a big shop in the supermarket or after a meal out. They are very plentiful and only cost 5 euros back to the villa. We would recommend going up to both the Tropical Gardens and the Botanical Gardens on the funicular. The ride up is a treat with brilliant views from the carriage and the gardens themselves are well worth a look. Lots of lovely restaurants and shops in Funchal. Overall, a great holiday and I will definitely tell my family and friends about the villa.
It was a great pleasure to stay in John's villa. It was beyond my expectations. Such a luxurious place! We have 7 person and we really enjoyed the stay there. Maria is very kind and helpful host, we received very warm welcome. This villa is an interesting piece of architecture, interior design and decoration with the most breathtaking views. Everything is new and very clean. Great kitchen is fully equipped with high quality machines. The villa is located in a good place, 10 min walk to Funchal city center Av do Mar. The villa has a huge garage, so there is no need to worry about parking. WOW factors: Swimming Pool, Amazing Views, garage, space. Personally, I recommend villa to everyone who want to explore and relax in Madeira,Funchal.
