About This Listing
This is the original Wave House apartment - only 1.5 years old - contemporary minimalist style (solar powered) - we call it unit 1 and it is a 1 bedroom oceanfront - T1 with fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops inside and out on the balcony, bathroom with shower, WIFI, outdoor shower (cool water only) on spacious veranda (2.6 meters by 8 meters), amazing view of ocean from every room, laundry room all in the best village in Madeira!
" THE WAVE HOUSE is designed to maximize the unobstructed panoramic view of the sea and coastline and tastefully blend into the seascape. Boasting the closest proximity to the famous peeling waves marching down the point and soul-soothing sea breezes, both of which are natural remedies for the stress of modern living. Breathe in the fresh salty air and fall asleep to the waves rhythmically crashing on the shore. Premier oceanfront location in picturesque village of Jardim Do Mar (Garden of the Sea) - solitude amidst pristine beauty. "
Being world travelers, there is no better place in all the 35 countries we have visited! The best climate - never too hot or too cold!
Jardim Do Mar is a farming village of 200 people - very safe and peaceful, the apartment has one neighbor on the right side, but they are from Holland and rarely are there. To the left (facing the sea) it is all vineyards, gardens and coastline.
In front of the apartment is the sea and below you have the promenade to walk down to the Portinho about 200 meters for coffee, lunch, dinner or drink. The hotel is 35 meters from the backyard, and it has a nice restaurant and bar too. Joe's Bar is down a pathway from the village center, and it is where lots of locals are to be found watching soccer, having a drink or lunch and dinner. Great place to eat! Tar Mar restaurant is the best seafood restaurant and attracts people from all over the island. It is a short walk just past the central carpark.
There is a small market in the village, and bread trucks come every morning twice a day between 8 to 10 AM. There is a medium size market in the next village (3 kms) and a supermarket at Calheta Beach (7 kms) away. There is an ATM in Paul Do Mar (3 kms). The waves, Portinho sunbathing and swimming area (ask if the waves are safe in the Portinho cafe first) nature walking up to Prazeres are the main attractions in the village, but just strolling through gardens with the meandering waterways is so pleasant and relaxing. There is a great lookout overlooking the village on the trail up to Prazeres, great place for a picnic.
Public transit is minimal - local bus comes a few times a day, taxis can be requested at the hotel just behind us, and we have a friend who provides affordable and excellent tours - by car and boat! There is whale and dolphin watching, deep sea fishing, snorkeling, canyoning, paragliding, paddleboarding, surfing, mountain biking, downhill biking, nature hiking - it is truly an adventure island!
Prices are for 2 people or small families. If there are additional people please contact us for new quotes. Also please do not smoke inside the house and please have a wonderful time!
The wave house appartments are fabulous, with a beautiful terrace right on the water front just where the waves are best for watching and surfing. The appartments are comfortable although the kitchen is a little under-equiped.
Ein Apartment zum Wohlfühlen! Das Wave House hält was es verspricht: Meeresrauschen rund um die Uhr, Wellen rollen unentwegt direkt unterhalb der Terrasse ans Ufer. In dem ruhigen, gepflegten autofreien Ort Jardim do Mar konnten wir uns vom ersten Augenblick an entspannen. Ein entgegenkommender Gastgeber und die freundliche Betreuung während unseres Urlaubs liessen keine Wünsche offen.
Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit!

Nous avons passé un séjour fantastique dans l'appartement Unit 1 de Jardim Do Mar: c'est un véritable petit coin de paradis! Appartement spacieux, très propre, bien équipé, une vue incroyable sur la mer avec des couchers de soleil à couper le souffle. Bref, c'est un véritable petit bijou où nous avons complètement déconnecté, loin de l'agitation de la ville. Nous recommandons fortement ce logement à quiconque souhaite passer des vacances inoubliables. Dernier point, nous avons parcouru 1600 km sur l'île et c'est sincèrement le seul endroit où il fait beau tous les jours !!!
Merci Kristjan de nous avoir permis de passer de si belle vacances.
Een prachtig appartement, heel mooi uitzicht, we hebben genoten.
Jammer dat er geen buitenterras meubilair aanwezig was. Helaas geen 3 barkrukken. Appartement op 2 manieren bereikbaar. Vanaf de centrale parkeerplaats ongeveer 50 trappen naar beneden ( 100 meter), dus ook naar boven of via de boulevard ongeveer 250 meter lopen en dan 15 treden naar boven. De laatste optie was de gemakkelijkste.
We rented this flat as a trio of friends and I honestly think, it's really difficult to get anything better than this for that price.
The view is simply stunning since the flat is situated directly on the ocean walkpath.
The apartment is new, with beautiful glass windows and a very well organized kitchen and it sports a beautiful and wide balcony which is perfect to sunbath, having dinner or even grill (since grill is also at disposal)
Jardim do Mar itself is a tiny village, with few basic shops and bars but cozy and in general, if you have a car, you can go basically anywhere on the island in 30 min.
All in all, we are really satisfied with the experience at Kristjan's apartment and we suggested it it to anybody who really wants to enjoy the beauty of this Island.

About the Host, Kristjan
We are a family of seven that loves life and loves being outdoors. We are renting our oceanfront house in beautiful Madeira because our family had to move back to the United States due to our child's medical needs. Our village, Jardim Do Mar, is amazingly beautiful surfing, nature hikes, fishing, swimming etc. all around. The Wave House is the best located property right in front of the waves and surrounded by terraced gardens and vineyards descend towards the sea and surround our house. Please come stay at our house and support our family!
