Excellent stay

Bernd and AngelikaFrankfurt/Germany We have stayed at the house for one week and we enjoyed it very much. It is very quiet there and we loved it watching the sunset from the roof balcony. The house is well equipped and we missed nothing. Paul and Iva are excellent hosts, very friendly and helpful. We liked them very much. We will recommend a stay there to everybody.

You will not be disappointed...

Thorsten & SabineHamburg, Germany When we were planning our first trip to Madeira, we were not so sure if it´s a good idea to stay so far out in the west of the south coast. Turned out that we didn´t regret our decision for a second! Not only did we find out that you can reach almost any point on this beautiful island easily in less than an hour by car, but we also discovered that all the nice things we had read about the helpful hosts and their Sunny House are absolutely true. Located in a quiet, down-to-earth village, surrounded by banana trees, close to the sea shore, very well equipped, tidy and, yes, sunny. With great views of the mountains and the ocean from the balcony, where you can spend your evenings having a barbecue and just chill or even go online via Wi-Fi internet access if you feel you have to stay in touch with the world out there. If you´ld ask us, whether we missed anything, we would have to say: an electric coffee maker. But from what we´ve heard, they even got one of these machines now! Can´t wait to go back there... Als wir unsere erste Reise nach Madeira geplant haben, waren wir uns nicht so sicher, ob es eine gute Idee ist, so weit im Westen der Insel zu wohnen. Tatsächlich haben wir unsere Entscheidung nicht eine Sekunde lang bereut! Wir haben nicht nur gemwerkt, dass man so ziemlich jeden Punkt dieser wunderschönen Insel in weniger als 1 Stunde mit dem Auto erreichen kann, sondern konnten auch feststellen, dass all die netten Dinge, das wir über die hilfsbereiten Gastgeber und ihr Sunny House gelesen haben, wahr sind. Es liegt in einem ruhigen, bodenständigen Dorf, umgeben von Bananenpalmen, nah am Meer, ist sehr gut ausgestattet, sauber und, ja, auch sonnig. Auf dem Balkon kann man abends mit tollem Blick auf die Berge und den Ozean beim Barbecue entspannen oder auch über WLAN ins Internet gehen, wenn man meint, man müsste mit der Welt da draussen in Kontakt bleiben. Wenn man uns fragt, ob wir irgend etwas vermisst haben, würde uns nur eines einfallen: eine Kaffeemaschine. Aber wie wir gehört haben, hat man inzwischen auch die angeschafft! Wir können´s kaum erwarten, wieder hin zu fahren...

We are so happy that you had a great holiday in Madeira particularly as it was your first visit and that your stay in the house and location was 5 out of 5. We look forward to your return and yes, the house now has an electric coffee maker to go with the traditional Italian ‘mokka’ machine! Paul & Iva

Great Location and hospitality

Dave&SamPlymouth A very nice house on 3 levels set amongst the Banana plantations within the unspoilt fishing village of Paul Da Mar. Paul and Eva were very friendly and helpful hosts, with us dining out with them on our arrival, in Joe's Bar at the adjoining village. Lovelly food and great company. Eva was brought up in Paul Da Mar so was able to provide us with an interesting insight into the history of the village and surrounding area. The village is very unspoilt, so you get an insight into local life. The house is set about 200 metres back from the sea. You can sit on the top floor balcony and see the wonderful sunsets dip beyond the horizon. Also lay in bed and listen to the waves lapping the shores. The house is very clean, the kitchen is modern with all necessary cooking utensils, should you wish to eat in. The beds are comfortable and the two bathrooms have a nice shower with plenty of hot water. The top floor living room and external balcony are elevated so you get great views, and the sun to your south and west all day. You can stroll along to the older part of the village, or walk up the very steep hills to the top of the cliffs! We like to explore the island so hired a car and drove around the island. There is plenty to see both locally and further a field, but it was always nice to return to our base for a relaxing evening locally. The village has a small bakery and convenience store. The nearest supermarket and petrol station are a 10 minute drive away. Definitly recommend it to friends and family but would say unless you want to do absolutely nothing and are happy to just stroll along the sea front i would recommend you have a car to explore as there isn't much to do locally without one. Recommended for: Age 55+, Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway Owner's Response: Dave & Sam thanks for the 5/5 review.We are very happy that you enjoyed both ‘Sunny House East’ its facilities, equipment and Paul do Mar. Your review confirms that the location is quiet and relaxing, great for short, easy walks whether along the ocean front or longer ones up to the top of the cliffs - such as the PR19 about one hour! And that everything you need whether it’s a restaurant or shopping is in the village or about 10 minutes away by car in Calheta town by the Ocean or up on top of the cliffs. We always recommend hiring a car in Madeira for convenience and comfort and according to UK newspaper reports in September 2010 Madeira is one of the cheaper places in the world for renting a car even if you are only renting for a week! We hope that you will return to Madeira soon and explore more of it! Best wishes Paul & Iva

Good adress

Claudine/France We have been very happy with our stay in the home of Paul and Iva. The house is very clean, well equipped, just what is needed and also very quiet. It is spacious and pleasant. The points of view on the sea and on the gardens from the terraces are beautiful. The owners gave us all the information necessary for the functioning of the house and are really a nice. In Paul Do Mar you can easily swim from the pier. The village is calm and we just felt like the end of the road without being far from the sites visited, such as the plateau Da Serra, Porto Moniz and the coast northwest and southwest. This location allowed us to go hiking on the day in this region west of the island. In our opinion, this is a good address and a fair price, adding to the good impression that we have.

Amazing holidays in Sunny house

Solène Rennes / France We had very nice holidays in Paul do Mar. The house was very clean with a gorgeous view on the sea. The sea was only a-2 minute walk away and the area is really quiet and beautiful (into bananas field). Thanks to Paul and Iva advice we could go out on a boat trip and see whale and dolphins, it was crazy ! We recommand this house to everybody ! thanks again to Paul and Iva for their warm welcome. Recommended for: Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway Owner's Response: Dear Solene, thankyou for the 5/5 review and recommending the house to everybody! Your review of Sunny House East emphasises the gorgeous ocean views and how close the house between banana fields is to the ocean front. We appreciate that you took our advice to dolphin & whale-watch and it was crazy! We hope that you will return to Madeira soon and stay with us again! Paul & Iva

A Quiet Haven

I have just came back from 8 days in the Villa Dobrevo and all i can say is it was brilliant. Its very peaceful but well equiped with everything you need. The neighbours next door brought us round tomatoes and they lasted the whole time we were there, abosolutely gorgeous. There is a pub a five minute drive and cheap, so cheap and everyone is very friendly. Its quite far out from anywere really but thats what we wanted and we absolutely loved it. The villa wasnt quite ready when we got there but the owners text us to apologise which i thought was really nice and it didnt bother us anyway. All in all, lovely place, lovely villa, shops cheap as chips, defintely 10 out of 10 and would recommend it to anyone. I am just looking at the pictures and wishing I was back there now. zena

Fabulous, Luxurious, Best Holiday Ever!!!!!

My family and I (3 teenagers, my hubby and myself) stayed at the 3 bedroomed amazing villa in March. From the moment we arrived we knew this was special, we were met at a pre-arranged spot, taken to the villa where the Cava was on ice for us and a great welcome pack of bread, milk, beers, Cava, wine and various other goodies were waiting for us. There was even little chocolates on the pillows for us! We had amazing weather and spent most of our time in the villa, it was so nice we didn't want to leave....We dined a few times in a lovely Chinese restaurant on the beach front of Altea, all of us for under 30€!!! Amazing!!! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone...... We will definitely be back next year.......
