Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had such an amazing time in Madeira, and the apartment was the icing on the cake. Very clean, great facilities and a really friendly and welcome stay. We enjoyed meeting everyone and especially liked having Sasha (the beautiful dog) around!!

  • C'est comme sur les photos ! La chambre est propre, le lit est confortable et Carlos est accueillant. C'est tellement magique de se lever face à l'océan... Nous avons passé deux jours fabuleux.

  • We had a lovely stay at Katty and Carlos' house. Santa Cruz is a very cute and lively little town. The house is a beautiful quinta with an amazing view over the ocean and the Desert Islands. The room is big, very clean, cosy and the private bathroom brand new and decorated with taste. Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet Katty, but Carlos made us feel at home straightaway. He is very easy-going, a great conversationalist and always willing to help. And the dog is wonderful!

  • This house was one of the best houses I have ever stayed in. The location is great and the views are incredible. The Atlantic Ocean sits right in front of you with steps in your backyard that take you right to the boardwalk and the coast. I recommend this house to everyone.

  • We stayed at the house by the beach in Santa Cruz in 8/2012 for one week.

    It's a room for a couple with a private bathroom in a very nice old villa located directly at the sea with a private stairway to the ocean and a 30 second walk to the (stone) beach. Everything is newly renovated and very nice and clean. You have your own brand new samsung flat tv in your room, and you enjoy an excellent view at the airport and the arriving planes.

    You share the rest of the house (living room, kitchen, salt water pool) with Katty and her fiancé, who live in it and rent the room to you. The grandparents live in the same house (on the top floor), but we only met them once. People usually smoke in the house, but when we asked them not to everyone went outside. There is a big and friendly dog.

    When we first contacted Katty about our travel plans, she told us about some construction work going on (the new BBQ was about to be built), so we arrived two weeks later. Thank you for noticing us, and thanks for letting us take part at your BBQ night later on - the Espetada truly was delicious.

    Santa Cruz itself is a nice small town that offers access to the sea with long stone beaches and three swimmers docks built 30 meters into the sea. There is a public open air pool (free of charge), too; a local fish market at the beach and a big supermarket.

    How to get there: You have to take the expressway from Funchal (!), exit at Santa Cruz Oeste and take the very first (!) right, which is not a public road, but the access road to the house (marked with two "excepto residentes" signs). If you pass by, you have to go around since there is no access (by car) from the other direction.
