The space

North Coast Guesthouse was born from a young couple that searched balance with Nature, combining the pleasure of welcoming people "Hosting guests is our way to travel without leaving home."

A very Nice place in Madeira. Ruben and Andrea are welcoming and warm. They are present to talk with their guest and give us good advice about the island. The home is tastefull decorated. And what about the garden... it's wonderful. To resume a very good stay in greenery. We recommend and we Will definitely return over there.

A wonderful place to stay in a beautiful and peaceful setting. The bed was super comfortable, and the space was very clean! I enjoyed sitting in the sun on the chairs outside the room everyday and lounging in the hammock, reading the books that are provided :) The breakfast was cute and had a variety of food from yoghurt and fruit to pastries and bread, juice and coffee :) Ruben is kind and let us check in early after many hours traveling, and Andreia is so sweet and I loved their dogs so much. We will always remember our time spent there. Thanks guys :)

This place is very well taken care of. A beautiful place, with a wonderful flowery garden and a amazing mountain view. The host, Ruben and Andrea, are really dedicated people and made us feel at home. We had a lovely time in Sau Vincente.

We stayed with Ruben, Andrea and little Antonio in their beautiful house for two nights. While very welcoming to us you also feel like you have your own space as the room is in a separate building set at the other end of the garden, with a view of the Sao Vincente mountain range. The room was great and felt authentic and suitable for surroundings. We jumped at the chance of our first experience of stand up paddle boarding with Ruben (SUP guru) and it did not disappoint! At night whilst taking advantage of the BBQ we found the grounds of the house relaxing and very peaceful, whilst the centre of town is just a short walk away. If back in the area we would definitely book to stay again

This is undoubtedly our "coup de cœur" in Madera. The Quinta is just fantastic in a wonderful environment of flowers and beautiful garden. Andreia and Ruben are extremely kind people and this makes the stay particularly unforgettable. The place is also quiet and very resting. Andreia and Ruben share their kitchen, therefore it is possible to cook there. We recommend to stay there at least one year every year. The place is so valuable that we would like to keep it secret for us!!!

Great location, tasty breakfast, charming people, absolutely worth visting. We would recommend a car for this (as Ruben already mentioned) - although we did a more or less good job by traveling by foot, taxi and public transportation.

Very lovely place to stay and get away from the congestion of Funchal (about a 45 minute drive from Funchal). The home has a nice garden and patio for relaxing (with 2 very sweet dogs who love belly rubs). The hosts are very warm and instantly make you feel at home. They provided us with good suggestions for local hikes with minimal crowds and offered samples of local foods. We would love to stay again sometime.
