Self-catering 2-bedroom apartment on top floor of owners own house in rural area, with views over adjacent farmland,on a bus route, 15 mins to golf/horse riding/tennis/country park/levada walks - closer to nearby restaurants.
Traditional Madeiran apartment, spacious, comfortable & well-equipped; Sleeps 3, but sitting room has sofa bed in case of an extra guest.
Apartment has its' own front door plus a small private terrace for guests to relax, & which overlooks the road & neighbouring properties.A small laundry room is available, shared by 'The Adega' apartment on lower floor.
My husband & I live on the middle floor between both apartments, so are usually on hand for help/information for guests.
Minimum length of stay usually 1 week, but willing to discuss other requirements.
No smoking inside apartment & no pets allowed. Also please do not encourage into the apartment the feral cats who 'patrol' the property - this is rural farmland & the cats do not belong just to this house - they are not domestic pets. As this is a self-catering apartment, cleaning materials are supplied for guests to ensure that they can leave all clean & tidy on departure ( & all dishes etc., washed & put away). We do have cot/highchair for babies, but please ask first if you have children.
I am an Englishwoman, but have been married to a Madeiran husband for the past 11 years; & we moved from England to Madeira in December 2013. We have converted the old wine-cellar (adega) of our house to an apartment to host tourists (golfers, levada walkers, etc) & also work the fazenda (farmland) & keep chickens & ducks. I love the Madeiran Fado music, but am also a lifelong Status Quo fan & love reading (when I have previous experience of hosting for Airbnb, but used to own a hotel in Devon, England. My life motto - keep busy to stay young! Can't live without coffee, & my hosting style is probably like Nanny McPhee in the films - if you need me, I'm around, if you don't need me , I won't intrude.
