“great family villa”

person found this review helpful

villa is set back from the quiet road on the sea front tucked behind a row of houses and a banana field. Only 40 metres or so from the road where you park the car. Nice light and airy villa on 3 levels and a nice sun terrace and BBQ on the top level.
Well equipped. Everything worked and was clean and presentable as you would expect.
Very happy to recommend. Paul and Iva were excellent hosts

You do need a car. Paul do Mar is a working fishing village. The beach is long but very large stones rather than pebbles so you wont be walking along it dipping your toes in the atlantic. Nice to be this end of the island though. More real than Funchal

Would you recommend this hotel to a friend?   Yes.

Although you did not like the large stones on the natural beach we hope that you swam from the steps at the end of the village and at the harbour or that you swam from the 3 artificial sand beaches next to the marina 10 minutes drive from Paul do Mar in Calheta town

We hope that you return again soon and consider staying at SUNNY HOUSE WEST Beach House or another property that we have managed since 2008. Follow us and what´s happening in Madeira on our blog; best of Madeira ! Best wishes the owners and managers of SUNNY HOUSE WEST Beach House since 2008

We stayed here for a week with family of 5. Our stay was great. The house was clean spacious and well furnished for our needs. It was equipped with all the things we needed so was home from home.

Paul and Iva (managers) were fantastic and made great effort to ensure our stay was a good experience from day one. They met us and showed us around, we arrived late in the night and they provided us some basics to see us through the night. Paul and Iva have excellent knowledge of the island and provide a lot of up to date information on the local area and other parts of the island. Very useful guides he prepared. There are two walks straight behind the house if you are fit enough you can attempt and have spectacular views of the village from different view points.

The house is also equipped with some basic walking equipment. We were grateful Paul provided us with water sports gear( snorkeling kits).

The house is in the middle of a banana plantation and a few metres from the see. You can hear the waves from the bedrooms and balconies.

The house receives a significant amount of sunshine from 10.00 to 21.00hrs you are bathing in the sun. You always have beautiful sunsets guaranteed daily.
There are plenty of local amenities restaurants and pubs which close as late as 02.00. There is a supermarket in Calheta 10 minutes away from the village. This is where you can find the sand beaches ( man made) sand imported from Morocco.

If you are after a peaceful stay in a quiet corner of the island this is the place to stay. You can easily stay in the village for the whole duration however we used it as a base to explore the island. A car is not compulsory but essential if you want to explore.

Thanks to Paul and Iva we will definitely be coming back and recommend Sunny West Beach House.

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.

Sunny House is a delightful villa set in a really peaceful fishing village with excellent access to walks, local shops, cafes and bars. It sits right among the walled banana and fruit gardens, and one can walk though them to the village centre. The house is very well equipped, including beach towels, BBQ and a full range of patio furniture for use on the two beautiful sun terraces.

There are many places nearby to visit including Jardim do Mar, Calheta, levada walks and the surrounding hills. The exhilarating cliff walks at each end of the village are experiences not to be missed.

Paul and Iva are very welcoming and extremely helpful.

Dear B.F. from Germany
thanks for the '5 star' 'excellent' review for Sunny House, Paul do Mar and that you would recommend the house to your best friend.

We are over the moon that you wrote that:

Thanks for so many likes..particularly:

- Sunny House was great and was fully equipped with everything we needed.
- The ocean, the waves, the sun ... of Madeira
- The better known trails of Paul do Mar: Caminho Real and Vereda dos Zimbreiros
- The lesser known trails of Paul do Mar: along the beach to Jardim do Mar (only possible during low tide)
- The Sunday market in Prazeres with local fruits and vegetables

Also, you wrote:
"We only had time to stay one week, which was definitely too short. So, we'll try to return to Madeira in the future."

So, naturally, we look forward to your return to Madeira and hope that you will base yourself again at Sunny House for another activity and relax holiday!
