About Aurelio and Sietske da Costa
We are a Portuguese/ Dutch couple and we are the proprietors of this holiday home. We would like to welcome you!
Why Aurelio and Sietske da Costa chose Santa Luzia
The climate is pleasant all year round and the sun shines more often than in other parts of the island.
What makes this House unique
It's well located, away from the tourist area, on a hill overlooking Funchal and the ocean. In this location it feels more like living in a quiet town rather than in a city and yet you are in walking distance to the center of town. The backyard is ideal for sun bathing because it's private. It's also a great place to sit or have a meal outside all year round. You can drink coffee on the balcony upstairs, and enjoy the wonderful views.

Lovely home away from home
Great location. We walked into town although the hills were a bit of a challenge. Aurelio and Sietske had everything that we could need during our 4 night stay. We appreciated the well stocked kitchen. I also liked sitting in the back with a glass of wine chilling after long days of sightseeing. They are both gracious hosts, taking time to show us everything in the house as well as giving us sightseeing tips. I have already mentioned this property to my sister (and her family of 5)! Many thanks Aurelio and Sietske for a wonderful stay in your second home !
Thank you for your kind review! Very much appreciated! You were great guests! Welcome back!
Another great stay in this property,bus stop close to house,so easy to get into and back from Funchal.Aurelio and Sietske are a lovely couple and they could not be more helpful if you need help decicing which places you want to visit.The house has everything required for cooking drinking etc.Proper home from home,I'll be back,
'A house with a view"
The first thing to say, when we arrived was the warm welcome we received from Aurelio and Sietske. We had the full rundown on how everything worked. Seiske's welcome folder was brimming with useful information and we often referred to it.
The house was clean and very spacious, especially for the 2 of us. We decided on the bedroom with a view of Funchal Harbour, because it had a balcony. The bed and pillows were very comfortable.
We agree with other guests comments regarding the dogs.
As we are ourselves owners of a holiday home in Spain, we would recommend the upgrading of the TV to meet today's entertainment criteria, because you have excellent internet service. We had a similar situation in Spain and we upgraded the TV and now enjoy positive feedback from guests.
We would suggest bringing binoculars to view the cruise ships coming into port on a regular basis and the many beautiful views across the island. We rented a car for 3 weeks of our holiday this allowed us to see the beauty of the island.
Walking down to Funchal took 20mins.The number 26 bus was ideal for the return trip, also Number 19 Bus is only a 5 minute walk to the top of the road.
We also recommend the bar just down the road from the house, and their 'picador' dish very reasonably priced and friendly. Our 5 week stay was very relaxing.
Hi Ann and Richard! We appreciate you taking the time to write such a nice and extensive review! We've taken note of your comment about the TV and we'll surely look into it.
Thank you for mentioning bus number 19 as a second option, besides bus number 26 for getting back to the house from town, and for your other tips for future guests.
It was a pleasure for us to meet you and we hope to welcome you again at Casa da Costa! Wishing you all the best for your holiday home in Spain!
it was really what we espected
Verry beautifull eiland and for once more we will go for it
Thank you for your review! Good to know that the house met your expectations! You were very good guests and we enjoyed meeting you. We hope that all of you can come back!
The view says it all
The view from the patio is just magical.The town of Funchal is so laid back you just get carried away with it all,so many great restaunts,easy and extremely varied shopping great trips out,never stuck for something to do. Sietske's property is amazing,so much room,great sunbathing,all the equipment you could wish for if you decide to eat in,and great information from the owner.One thing is sure we will be back next year just as soon as we can book flights.See you then Sietske.
Jim and Christine
Thank you very much Jim and Christine for this kind and detailed review! We look forward to having you back! No matter how many times you come, there is always more to discover in Funchal and around the island! ;-)
Lovely house in great area.
The house is spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean. An easy walk down to the Old Town and shopping districts - much harder walk back uphill but one bus brings you to the door and 3 more drop you just around the corner for a short downhill stroll back! Some dog noise overnight but it certainly did not stop me sleeping better than I have in years, and evenings on the balcony looking over the harbour with a glass of something were thoroughly enjoyed.
Sietske is exemplary in her communications and the information provided at the house was comprehensive. In Sietske's absence we were met at the house by her friend Pauline who was also very welcoming and helpful. We would be very glad to stay here againg when we next get over to Madeira.
Thank you so much for this lovely review! We're very happy you enjoyed your time in Madeira and in Casa da Costa! That spot on the balcony is a favourite among our guests, great to enjoy a coffee in the morning, or relax with a little glass of Madeira wine or a cold beer at the of the day :-)
