We're almost reluctant to review this property but that would be selfish of us. Having found it, we don't want to share it.
We can honestly say that we have never stayed anywhere like it. It's like a different world - peace and quiet reign. The cottage was beautifully furnished and had everything you could need - a fully fitted kitchen, balcony, TV , dvd player, books, Wi-Fi. There is even a washing machine and a tumble dryer available. Every home comfort is provided.
Outside is spectacular with vines and banana trees. The large pool is beautiful with loungers and umbrellas. We spent every morning at the pool and sometimes returned for a swim later in the day.
Buffy and Frank made us very welcome, as did the dogs who came to see us most days.
The property is well within walking distance of the centre of Funchal and all amenities including supermarkets and restaurants.
We've fallen in love with Casa do Feitor and hope to have many more holidays there.
We really can't praise this beautiful property highly enough.
Thank you for your comments
Perfect in every way
This was our first visit to Madeira and we found Casa Do Feitor to be perfect in every way. We felt so at home surrounded by the banana trees. Some days we were reluctant to open the gates and venture into the outside world.
The owners, Buffy and Frank, are special people

Delighted that you enjoyed our little oasis in the middle of town.
It is indeed peaceful and the weather was kind.
It is always good to have people who appreciate the property and hope to see you back again.

This was our first visit to Madeira and we found Casa Do Feitor perfect in every way. We felt really at home and instantly relaxed. Some days we were reluctant to open the gates and venture into the outside world.

Thank you for your comments
A great place to stay and relax
Our stay here was part of our 50th Wedding Anniversary celebrations. The accommodation here did not let us down. The comfortable apartment is fully equipped for self catering although there are many places to eat out close by. We had a car and although the entrance is a bit tight after a while presents no problem. Owners Frank and Buffy made us most welcome. We would definitely recommend this property.
Congratulations again on your Golden Wedding and delighted that part of your celebrations were with us. We do advise guests to hire a small car which is easier to drive into our entrance gate. Yes, guests comment on our central location where we re surrounded by many restaurants within walking distance. Many thanks for your comments.
Based on previous reviews these cottages had a lot to live up to!
We stayed for, sadly, only one week in Casa das Vinhas. It certainly lived up to every one of our high expectations. Right from the start, walking up through the vines and bananas to our front door, we felt instantly at home. The surroundings are lovely, private, calming. The cottage itself didn't really feel like a rental property, more like someones little home we had borrowed. A lovely atmosphere. Everything there we could want.
We swam, laid by the pool, drank wine on our patio, generally chilled out.....exactly what we needed and this cottage delivered it in spades !!
The sea, Funchal's shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance. We didn't have a car and didn't miss one.
The owners, Frank and Buffy were away for the first few days of our stay but came to see us once they returned to ensure all was well and were we happy and did we need anything. That was such a kind personal touch which made us feel so welcome. They also came to say goodbye when we left.
Its not often that we say this but we would definately return to Madeira and without doubt we would return to "our" Casa.
Wonderful that you enjoyed your stay so much! Yes, we are very lucky being in such a unique location; people describe this as an "oasis" in the middle of town. We enjoyed meeting you and would welcome you back to "your" Casa anytime.
Clean spacious and comfortable
Apart from a couple of niggles, which could have been avoided had the owners, who were on holiday, left someone on site to ensure that guests were OK, this is a def recommend from us.
Do not, like us, make the mistake in hiring a car, unless you are a professional driver, or a masochist, or own an Insurance Company. The only access to the cottages is so difficult that we elected to largely stay on site, as the thought of having to return through the entrance spoiled any excursions.
We were sorry to be away during your stay and had sent you an e-mail advising you about our absence and giving you various phone numbers to call should you have any problems. There is also a welcome handbook in the cottage asking you to contact various people with any queries.
Our employee, Ivone, was on the premises Monday to Friday and would have been able to help.
Our entrance is rather narrow but it was an existing gateway when we restored the cottages and could not be changed. Most people with a car do not have a problem. Many of our guests do not hire a car as we are so central with so many amenities, especially restaurants, within walking distance and local transport is excellent. For walking, which Madeira is renowned for, it is often easier to take a bus and be able to walk from A to B and get a bus home, rather than having to retrace your steps back to your car. Taxis are very reasonable too.
Thank you for recommending us and we hope to be able to personally welcome you back.
