Casa da Baleia - Beluga

House - Entire home/apt · Caniçal, Madeira, Portugal

The Space

Recently renovated, the house is divided into two units of accommodation, including South accommodation and East accommodation. The house have shared areas that include a natural seawater swimming pool (untreated, renewed every three days), a large solarium and a patio with barbecue and a garden area with some tropical fruit.

House description:

South Accommodation - 2 Bedroom unit with lounge, kitchen and 2 suites.

East Accommodation - 1 Bedroom unit with living room / kitchen and suite

Located less than 100 meters from the sea and 300 meters from the Caniçal center, a fishing village with about 4,000 inhabitants in 12 km2. At a distance less than 300 meters are available 2 access to the sea and two pebble beaches. A little further away, about 1 km, is located Prainha, the only natural beach (with black sand) of Madeira and many points of interest that allow tourist footpaths of extreme beauty (eg access to Cais do Sardinha / Ponta de São Lourenço .)

In the Caniçal center there are several restaurants, mostly fish and seafood, and all kinds of trade (pharmacy, supermarkets, banks, post office, museum, etc ...).

The site has excellent access, because the freeway is located less than 1 km from the villa, and a uncovered parking is available in front of the house. The parish is served by sub-urban transport which connect to the municipalities limitrofes (eg Machico 2.5 km), the city of Funchal (less than 20 km) and the airport (5 km) expeditiously.

The high accessibility and proximity to the sea, with warm and crystalline water (with an average temperature of 21 º), the mountain and the sea view, the quality and comfort of the house and the existence of various footpaths nearby housing makes us consider the villa as a unique space for recreation associated with beach and nature.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a lovely stay at this apartment, which was very quiet and overlooking the sea. When we arrived Nuno's parents where there to give us a very friendly welcome. The outside area is particularly nice, with a large unheated sea water pool and an outside table that is good for breakfast. The kitchen was well equipped and the rooms were nicely done up. Minus points where that the bathroom was rather small and that there was no separate sitting area, which is joined up with the kitchen.

  • Amazing place to stay if you go to Madeira. Canical is the most authentic village on the Island in our opinion. Go to the local restaurant 35 metres away for amazing sea food. Have a beer or espresso 60 meters further away from the most friendly bartender we ever met.

    The house is cool, amazing view, clean, fresh, relaxing, silent, perfect sized pool with fresh sea water, great host +++ What more to say, just go there:)

  • Amazing house, ideal for a family/couple holiday. The house is well equipped and you'll feel very private. The view is absolutely breathtaking and the area is very calm and authentic, with good restaurants nearby.

    By car you'll easily get around to the Islands' attractions (hiking, levadas, funchal, etc...).

  • Ich und meine zwei Kinder haben wunderbarte Tage in Caniçal verbracht. Nuno und seine Familie waren sehr, sehr freundlich und haben uns bei jeder Gelegenheit unterstützt. Ihre Informationen waren sehr hilfreich. Nochmals herzlichen Dank!

    Die Unterkunft ist in einem hervorragenden Zustand und die Infrastruktur lässt nichts zu wünschen übrig . Alles ist neu und von angenehmer, sauberer und gepflegter Qualität. Vor allem auch die Betten waren sehr bequem und wir haben wie die Götter geschlafen. Ein einziger Minuspunkt könnte die Grösse des Appartements sein. Bei schlechtem Wetter kann es für drei Personen unter Umständen etwas eng werden. Zudem fehlt leider der direkte Blick vom Appartement auf's Meer. Aber in wenigen Schritten ist man am wunderbaren Pool und kann die tolle Aussicht geniessen.

    Der Ort Caniçal ist ein hübsches Dörfchen mit einigen Restaurants. Diese bieten hauptsächlich frischen Fisch an. Dazu gibt es einige Supermarkets und Bäckereien, welche feines Brot und süsse Gebäcke im Angebot haben. Man kann sich also mit Lebensmitteln (unter anderem frische Früchte) eindecken und in der gut ausgestatteten Küche im Appartement kochen. Sehenswert in Caniçal ist der Hafen und auch das Wal-Museum. Zudem kann ich eine Wanderung auf die nahe gelegene Landzunge empfehlen.

  • Casa de Baleia is even more beautiful in real life. The house and the atmosphere is great and far away from tourism. We had a great and relaxing time. Highly recommend! For couples or for a bunch of friends :-) Nuno is the perfect host. He gave us lots of advice and picked us up from the airport!

  • Would like to thank Nuno, his brother and dad for a wonderful stay we had at Casa de Beluga! They are lovely and caring hosts, and the place is lovely itself - very stylish, comfortable and suitably located - close to the beach, to the sights and to the airport. The house is absolutely like on the pictures or even better - everything is new and clean. Kitchen is equipped with everything you may need. The pool with salty water is clean and very nice to have a morning swim - and hosts were so kind even to bring us bathrobes. And the lightning around the pool and the house in the night is so romantic! Must visit place for a honeymoon :) but also good for a family stay. And we liked Canical very much - it is absolutely non touristic, authentic fishing village with port facilities and cheap restaurants serving delicious seafood. By car you can easily reach any other place on the island - for example, the western tip of the island Porto Moniz is only around 1,5 drive. Thanks again to Nuno and Gonzalo! We will be back!

  • La casa es estupenda, las fotos son justo como es. Llegamos un día por lo noche y Gonçalo, el hermano de Nuno estaba esperándonos en la casa con toda la información sobre la casa, el pueblo (Caniçal) y la isla. Nos ofreció ir a buscarnos al aeropuerto, pero como habíamos alquilado un coche quedamos directamente en la casa, que es muy fácil de encontrar y está bastante cerca del aeropuerto.
    Tanto Nuno como Gonçalo como su padre son muy serviciales y están disponibles para todo lo que sea, y si surge algún problema al momento está solucionado. Para cualquier plan que hagas en Madeira ellos te dan su opinión y siempre te ayudan a mejorarlo.

    El pueblo es muy tranquilo y tiene buenas comunicaciones con el resto de la isla al estar cerca de la Vía rápida que va de punta a punta de la isla.
    Y de la casa nada malo se puede decir, ya que tiene todo lo necesario para relajarte cuando estás en ella.

    Volvería a repetir sin ninguna duda!

  • We stayed at the beluga a week in September. The pool and the patio was very nice as well as the apartement for two people. Nuno was very friendly and helpful giving us tips on what to do and what to see. The apartement was nicely furnished and very neat. We happened to be there on a festival weekend so the town was very alive and loud until late at night, but this shouldn't be a problem on other weekends.

  • We had a really pleasant stay at Casa da Baleia. The house is nice and decorated with taste, the pool is refreshing and the view on the sea is awesome. Nuno is really friendly and helpful. We hope to come back one day.

  • The place is amazing. In a quiet fishermen village far from tourists. The villa is very convenient and charming. A wonderful view on the ocean from the terrasse. And the pool is very nice.

    Nuno was very hearty. He gave us good addresses and helpful pieces of advice.

    Thanks again Nuno, we spent a wonderful moment in Casa de Baleia !
