Great location and spacious apartment
Only downside is there were only two sun loungers for all the apartments and a broken umbrella
Thank you for staying with us and for your feed back.
The building administration has been requested to add more sunbeds and umbrellas to the pool area and we hope that will be done for the summer season.
Hope you will visit us again sometime in the future.
Lovely appartment retreat
Apartment easy to find from the airport and easy to explore the island from Calheta. Apartment it's self, very spacious, fine for 4 adults (2 staying in single beds). Kitchen well equipped, and we made some lovely meals during our stay, however it is not far to venture to the local restaurants or a short drive to the marina for eating out. The pool is shared but apart from one day we were the only guests using it, generally a very quite area. Very clean apartment, and felt at home, easy to relax there. I would have liked some Wifi, but not essential. There is so much to explore in madeira and we would certainly stay again should we re-visit the island! :)
Lovely apartment in a peaceful location
The apartment has everything needed for a peaceful and comfortable holiday. There are exceptional views over the Atlantic Ocean. The apartment was easy to find. Car hire is essential to get around the island. There is plenty of free secure parking available. Calheta is situated to the west of the island. This makes it ideal for exploring the central and westerly parts of the island. Funchal can be reached in about 30 minutes. There are several restaurants and cafes within walking distance. The Convento das vinhas restaurant is recommended. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. If you prefer eating in the apartment then there is a well stocked supermarket in the marina. The cooking facilities in the apartment are the best we have had on holiday.
Not a bad view to wake up to!
The apartment is perfectly set up for a self catering holiday. Waking up to the view pictures and having breakfast in the balcony, in such a peaceful spot is a great way to start any day. All the appliances are in good working order and the secure parking is good. The only negative is the uncomfortable double bed, which I have fed back to the letting agents. They are a great team, who are easily accessible and very helpful. I would advise having a car, as the closest shops are a long (and steep) walk away. The West of the island is beautiful and peaceful and the rest of the island easily accessible. I really do recommend this apartment and Calheta to any potential visitors. Enjoy!
Plaza Bay is stunning apartment. Excellent value.
Plaza Bay is stunning apartment. The apartment was immaculate, nicely furnished with a modern feel. The views were spectacular. The owners provided everything we needed, (hairdryer, ironing board, iron and a good range of television stations). A supermarket and several restaurants were within easy reach of the apartment. The food at O Convento da vinha was very good. The beach at Calheta was lovely. The people in Madeira are very helpful. Funchal is well worth a visit, we booked an excursion through Calheta Beech Hotel. Other trips were available, hotel staff were more than happy to help. We would have loved to have taken a boat trip to see the dolphins, but ran out of time. Boats leave Calheta Marina on a daily basis. The weather in May was perfect; it was hot without being too humid or muggy. We stayed for a week but would have liked to stay longer; we will definitely return to Plaza Bay. Excellent value cannot be faulted. Thank you
Thank you once again for letting us stay in your amazing apartment. We had an amazing holiday and honestly we couldn't have asked for more. It was outstanding.
Calheta is a coastal town with 2 golden sandy beaches. The apartment is approximately 45 minutes from the airport and 30 minutes from Funchal.
There is a bus service from Calheta to Funchal and Ponto do Pargo in the west of the island.
The self catering apartment in Madeira is in within easy reach of many of the islands attractions.
Collection and drop off at the airport is available if required. Car hire can also be arranged. Please let us know at the time of booking
The area is an excellent place to experience Levada walks. These can either be self guided or arranged as part of a group excursion. Rabacal is an area which is popular with walkers but rarely crowded. To get to Rabacal guests need to drive about 10 minutes to the top of Paul da Serra.
For those who would like to visit the regions capital, Funchal, this is within easy reach.
