The gas counter top, two large sinks and spacious area make entertaining delightful and guests will enjoy mingling over a cocktail before sitting down in the dining room, or outside, on the covered patio. Tropical plantings and Madeira's light enhance the ambiance.

The first floor hosts three large bedrooms and the main bedroom suite is a dream. From this floor, the views of the Atlantic Ocean and the neighbouring Desertas islands are the ideal 'wakeup' view.

Immaculately maintained garden, filled with dozens of plants varieties, and pool area offer total privacy that's perfect for entertaining. Spend a day in the sun enjoying the kids-safe swimming pool, have fun preparing a meal on your own private BBQ grill, or just relax poolside reading a book.

The garage, in contrast to most houses in Madeira, is on the same level as the kitchen with an interior door between the two, which is great for bringing in the groceries.

Location description from owner

The Madeira Islands region

Madeira boasts year-round springlike weather. Thus, there is a wide range of opportunities for your leisure requirements. The Atlantic invites you to go sailing, fishing, whale and dolphin spotting, surfing, diving and of course swimming. Sea temperatures vary between 18 to 24 ºC depending on the time of year.

On land there are a many leisure activities available:

- Madeira coach tour to the best parts of the island. See the rugged North and West, the mountainous South and East or just take half a day for the famous Nun's Valley Tour.

- Levada walks in Madeira are some of the best opportunities to get in tune with the nature, landscape and peace of this island.

- Madeira is home to two superb golf courses, both with lovely views and excellent conditions: Palheiro Golf (5 km from the villa) and Santo da Serra Golf Club (17 Km), so there's plenty of opportunity to perfect your swing with a relaxing round of golf.

- There are several private leisure companies offering horse riding in Madeira, exciting adventure tours and private stables opened to public with horse riding courses.

- Madeira offers excellent conditions for practising outdoor sports throughout the year, and Villa Garajau is perfectly located to provide quick access to all.

Looking for a lifetime fishing experience? Madeira Island is located on the migratory routes of big game fish, record size catches of Blue Marlin (with more than 1,000 lbs) and Big Eye Tuna are not uncommon during the season from June to September. In Funchal's Marina you will find some of the best-equipped boats for big game fishing in the Mid-Atlantic with very experienced crews for your unforgettable fishing trip.

If you are a water park lover, Madeira has just the place for you. Santa Cruz Aqua Park is a 9 minute ride from the villa. Open only in the summer months it is a viable option for a sunny day during your holiday. Bring all the family and the grown ups can relax in the picnic area whilst the kids take to the slides.

Canico

This beautiful home is located in the exclusive area of Garajau. This quiet village is the preferred island location for sunshine, relaxation and access to activities. Close to the motorway, Garajau is less than 15 minutes to Madeira International Airport (7 Km) and charming Funchal (Madeira's capital and largest city).

The home is within walking distance to Supermarkets, Restaurants, Cafes, Pharmacy, a mouthwatering Bakery, and Fruit and Veg Shop (the best on the island).

Garajau is most famous for its pebble beach. You can take the cable car down the small bay, where you can sit on the pebbled beach in the sun and swim or paddle in the sea. Located on a pristine and spectacular Marine Nature Reserve (first in Portugal), it is THE location for snorkelling and scuba-diving. The water in the nature reserve is stunningly clear. In the summer months you can enjoy visibility of 50 metres, enabling you to see the captivating life that exists beneath the Atlantic's surface. There is a diving centre/school on the beach.

You can enjoy a slow stroll around Garajau, or you can join one of the walking tours available, taking you across the mountains, hillsides and valleys of Madeira. If you feel like heading somewhere livelier for the day, the island's capital, Funchal is just a short drive away.

“Magnificent stay”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2014

We were two families (in total four adults and four children aged between 2,5 and 7 years old) who travelled from Norway to Madeira for one week to spend New Year’s eve some place warm for a change. We decided to stay together but at the same time we needed some space for our kids to be able to play outside so we decided in favor of renting a villa. I’m so happy we stumbled (thanks to Tripadvisor, of course) upon magnificent Villa Garajau which was available for our dates despite of very short notice! It was a bit on the expensive side but totally worth it. The owner, Susana, was very helpful and promptly responded to my questions during our quick and effortless booking process. Upon our arrival we were pleasantly surprised with very high standard – the villa looked much better than on the pictures! Located on two levels, the villa has three quite spacious bedrooms each having its own bathroom. Outside there was a big pool (which we didn’t use because of the weather) with four sunbeds, a big party table, a barbeque corner and a big yard which our kids used for their games. The pool is wisely guarded by a fence to keep the toddlers outside. One of the bedrooms on the second floor has a small balcony with great ocean view. The living room downstairs has a big party table and a fireplace which was very convenient because it gets quite cold in a stone house during the winter (each bedroom had a heater which helped a lot). There’s a garage inside the house which fits two cars and another two can park outside in the inner yard. Lady housekeeper who met us upon our arrival doesn’t speak a word in English but it wasn’t a problem since I’d just call or email Susana whenever we had questions. One time there was a problem with hot water and 10 minutes after I sent an email someone showed up and the problem was solved. If I were to mention one downside it would be a very low internet bandwidth (even after moving the router close to the laptop speed didn’t go higher than 1 mbps) but that might be a general problem on Madeira, I’m not sure. Garajau, where the villa is located, is a nice small village only 10 minutes drive from Funchal (€15 for a taxi), 2 minutes drive from a big supermarket and 15 minutes walk from the ocean. Oh, and the island itself is absolutely amazing – you should see it to believe it. Overall, we are very happy with our stay and we’ll definitely consider returning to Villa Garajau the next time we go to Madeira.
