Five Bedroom Villa, Sleeps 10

Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
A fantastic villa beautifully laid out, lovely gardens & pool with great views over the harbour.
Would be even better if:
More than one tea towel provided.
Sufficient toilet rolls/bin bags etc. supplied for the duration.
It's a minor irritation but considering the cost, just add €50 to the rental and cover those basic requirements. I am sure that anyone prepared to pay the required rental for this villa, would still book it for a few euros more.
Having read previous reviews, would totally agree about the need for instructions for the "gadgets".
Nonetheless, we had a great week and would definitely recommend this villa to others.
Would also recommend using Our Madeira car rental option. Fully inclusive package with no pressure for any additional payments for full insurance/additional driver etc. Very efficient and effective process.
Thank you very much for your comments and feedback.
The Ultimate 'State of the Art' Holiday Property
We. as a family, have for many years stayed in Villas/Holiday properties in locations including the USA, Canada, The Algarve, Tunisia, France, Cyprus, Spain/Majorca, The Channel Islands, North and South of Ireland and, of course, Madeira.
This Villa is the ultimate in terms of the architecture, the layout, the furnishings, ( with a few reservations), the facilities and the location. It is extremely clean and well maintained.
The Lounge is literally in the sky and provides stupendous views over Funchal.
I cannot praise Colleta enough - she was a star ! Call with a problem and she was there almost immediately and it was attended to or advice was given in the most charming and helpful manner.
Whilst the furnishings and equipment were first class there were a number of very small matters which, as a 'semi'- retired Architect and Interior Designer, I consider deserve attention.
The very large and heavy doors to the pool and patio, the patio toilet,
and from the 3rd floor corridor to the laundry room would benefit from
having handles fitted, both inside and outside.
Similarly the sliding windows/doors to the 3rd floor bedrooms and, in particular the lounge doors require handles to make them easier to open and close.
There are no small shelves in the showers in which to put soaps and shampoos.
The bedrooms would benefit from having a small chair.
There are myriads of switches for lights, windows blinds and curtains.
The inclusion of a guide as to the function and location of the switches would have been a great help. ( Perhaps in more than one language ?).
The ladies in my party complained about the poor lighting around the
mirrors in the bedrooms which were not directional and which didn't help in applying make-up !
Similarly there are no illuminated shaving mirrors for men with an adjacent electrical plug for electrical shavers. !
I would have liked a pool thermometer to convince the ladies in my party that the water was not cold !!!
Please do not consider these observations as being destructive they are intended to be both constructive and helpful.
In conclusion I would not hesitate to recommend the Sky Lounge Residence to family, friends and anyone who asks.
Thank you for making our vacation as 'One to remember !!
We'll be back again.

Thank you very much for your constructive comments, always very helpful. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to your next visit.
Super Architektur aber leider heruntergewohnt
Das Haus ist sehr beeindruckend und wirklich sehr groß. Auch die Kommunikation mit der Agentur ist sehr professionell.
Leider können wir uns den bisherigen 5 Sterne Bewertungen nicht anschließen, da das Haus doch nicht unseren Ansprüchen genügt:
- die helle Stoffcouch im Wohnzimmer ist fleckig
- die Stühle auf dem Balkon sind speckig
- die Messer schneiden nichts
- das Geschirr, besonders die Tassen, sind schäbig
- der Staubsauger saugt nicht
- der größere Sonnenschirm ist defekt und nicht benutzbar
Was man ebenso wissen sollte: wenn man gerne bei offenem Fenster schläft, kann man morgens wählen, ob man von den rund 10 bellenden Hunden, dem Hahn oder den vorbeifahrenden Autos geweckt wird. Da hat man wenigsten etwas vom längeren Tag :)
A bakery and café and a small selection of restaurants are a mere 500 metres away, and the nearest supermarket 700m away.
Skylounge Residence is located in a traditional residential area of Funchal, and a downhill walk into the town centre (800 m away) will take around 10 minutes.
