Nice villa with some deficiencies
The villa in itself is nice and large. We had a lot of space.The design is modern. Most of the furniture was expensive. And we really liked the pool. There is 1 restaurant within walking distance (Aconchego). Otherwise you'll need a car.
There is no beach within walking distance.
Apart from that, people in Madeira are very friendly!
As for the cleanliness of the villa and the state of the furniture and appliances, we were not quite as happy. We even informed the manager, who came around and had a look, but was not able to help. He apologized that, as the villa had been for rent without even one break, he had not been able to tackle the problems. Although we understand to a certain extend, still, it would only take a few hours for a handyman to repair it. This is what we found:
- The drain of the shower in the master bedroom was blocked, so it was very difficult to take a shower and not flood the bathroom.
- One of the sinks in the second bathroom was turned off as the drain underneath was not watertight.
- All windows and shower glass panels need a clean. Most of them were opaque.
- The dishwasher, apart from the fact that it did not clean properly, was under low voltage, so everytime one touched the metall by mistake, one got a slight vibration…
- The ice cube machine was broken.
- The Grill was broken inside and poorly fixed.
The manager, no offence, couldn't help us and ignored most of it. Every now and then a vacation home needs to be cleaned from top to bottom, old stuff (10 packages of salt, 3 bottles of vinagre, leftovers of wine and spirits, etc….) need to be thrown away. It doesn’t look good! The towels need to be replaced as most of them are torn or have stains.
We stayed at the Villa for 8 days in August. Unluckily, the villa is situated in an area where dogs rule. This might also be the case in other areas of Madeira, but for us, this was absolute horror. It wasn’t so that there was a dog barking every now and then, the dog next door barked for hours and hours, at all times of the day and night! All other dogs in the neighbourhood answered. We had to call the neighbours out of their bed several times in the middle of the night to ask them to take the dog inside. They weren't able to calm down the dog either. We had a hard time sleeping.
The manager of this villa is not responsible for this of course, but I would say, in that part of the island (S. Martinho, near Orca Praia), it is no use renting a vacation home, sorry!
I never expect that you will wrote such an unfair review like that about the Villa .
You said the villa is nice is good but you start say a lot of different thing . In the other sites I have only 5 stars and you go and check it . Thank you for coming . But praia farmosa Beach is a distance walking if you go it from the back but sorry that I didn’t tell you . Thanks
Sehr schöne und geräumige Villa
Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Aufenthalt auf Madeira in einer wirklich sehr schönen Villa. Die Lokation ist atemberaubend mit einem wahnsinnig schönen Weitblick aufs Meer.
Der Villa selbst fehlt es an nichts und der Aussenbereich lädt förmlich zum Relaxen ein. Die Insel selbst ist ein Traum in grün und bunt und bietet alles was ein super Urlaub so braucht.
Wir kommen wieder, Madeira!
