I cannot recommend Ruben and Andreia's Northcoast Guest House enough! I loved my time there! They welcomed me into their home, provided a large bedroom, very comfy bed, beautiful cotton sheets, and a balcony from which to see the mountains and the sea. After a good breakfast, it's a perfect location to get to many of the amazing walks on Madeira -- and the village of Sao Vincente is a wonderful spot. I found it very difficult to leave, I felt so at home -- and slept so well after hiking. I will definitely be back very soon!
This beautyfull BnB is owned by a nice couple. You have a great view on both the mountains and the sea. The breakfeast includes fresh bread and more. The house is very beautyfull.
Big Thanks for you, Ruben and Andreia. You were great hosts and we didnt feel like strangers but like your personal guests. your house is nice and huge - lying at the sea in a beautiful valley between all those great mountains of the northcoast. Even the breakfast was great - with freshly baked rolls, cake and fresh fruits. All the best and go on surfing the big ones!
Very nice room and splendid terrasse!
We didn't stay a lot but Ruben and Andreia are very nice and they know to be discret and friendly at the same time.

Great guests, awesome home and the views..! You can see how the house is really nice inside on the photos, and its location is ideal coz its not a touristic hotspot, more quiet and peaceful with amazing sceneries around and the sea just 10min away and a local shop and a place to drink poncha or eat dinner is just 5 min away. Breakfasts were nice with fresh bakery every morning and Ruben and Andrea are always there to answer your questions or help in any other way, they are enthusiastic surfers with open mind.
Both Ruben and Andreia are more than just pleasant hosts, they really get out of their way, trying to make you feel as comfortable as possible. You really feel like staying with friends for a few days.
I have spent a week in their lovely house in Sao Vicencte, which they recently renovated and they did a great job with it. The bedrooms are nicely furnished and very clean, each one has a small balcony from which you can enjoy the view to the sea and the mountains.
The very clean bathroom is shared with the other guests, but we never collided. But I can see with two couples staying there at the same time, that some coordination may be required, Towels were provided as well.
Ruben also is a very experienced surfer and gave me a few private lessons. And in case you are a more experienced surfer you can just walk to the nearby somewhat rocky surfing spot which has decent waves. They also have plenty of boards to rent or if you spent some more time, Ruben can even build you a customized one.
Since I came to Madeira on very short notice I was not ablr to rent a car in advance (and a car is strongly recommended to have, no matter where on the island you stay), I was able tp rent an older VW Transporter from them during the day, for pretty cheap, considering that most cars on the island cost about twice as much a day. .
I travelled by myself, but never had to feel alone. I met their friends and together we had dinner or went to the local festivals, which were going one during my stay.
The home was absolutely beautiful and the hosts were very, very gracious! The stay was really enjoyable. The views were stunning. The hosts helped with local maps, suggestions, activities, airport shuttle services and great food! I highly recommend staying at this location!
They have a sweet dog that will sit with you for morning coffee on the porch however if you have an aversion to dogs please note their dog does not come into the house and is easily avoidable if you need to stay away from dogs. There is a separate porch entirely that you can use.
The house has big rooms, comfortable beds and beautiful hardwood floors. The breakfast provided is plenty of food including a taste of local fruits, cheeses and pastries.
Ruben is also a surfing instructor and has many beautiful surf boards so if you're inclined he's readily available to take you out in the waves.
I wasn't able to get a rental car so they were very kind in letting me rent their extra car. It was a life saver for me and made the trip on the island much more doable.
Ruben and Andrea were both very kind, helpful and welcoming hosts. Their house is beautiful, and anyone can tell that it has been a labor of love for them. They have really done an amazing job with the layout, design and (re)construction of the house and garden. The room that we stayed in was very comfortable, clean and cozy; the breakfast that they provided was healthy, tasty and filling; and their local tips and suggestions were very well received.
My Wife and I had a wonderful stay at the guest house, and would HUGEly recommend this space to others. Located in Sao Vicente, the guest house is in an incredibly beautiful valley. Please go to Madeira, and please stay at Ruben and Andrea's guest house. You won't regret it!
P.s. Their dog is very sweet, and will definitely cozy up with you while you lie in the Hammock - If you're in to that sort of thing of course. He is also very well trained, and will not go into either the Kitchen or your Sleeping room.
Superbe île, superbes vacances et chambre d'hôte parfaite où nous sommes restees 5 nuits. Les chambres sont grandes et propres et le petit déjeuner varié et copieux! Ruben et Andreia nous ont accueilli comme des amis!
Bravo à tous les deux et bonne continuation.
Ruben and Andreia are very nice and welcoming hosts. The house is beautiful, the room very comfortable et the breakfast is perfect :) And the location is very practical to enjoy the north of this beautiful island. Thanks for everything !
