Thank you for this great week here in Quinta Santa Luzia. We felt like living in a dream castle. In the morning we had the pleasure to enjoy the beautiful view from the Terrance, in the evening the light of the moon and the lights on the streets made a beautiful scenario.

Your hospitality, and the helpful service in the morning made us feel really comfortable.

Thank you again

We were a group of 12 – 8 adults & 4 kids. This property was much more than we imagined. We were blown away by the scale of it. We spent most days playing & hanging by the pool & only left the Quinta to stock up supplies. The Garden is a magical place. Thank you to Andrew for sharing it with us. I really hope that we will be back.

What an amazing vacation and in the most beautiful setting! There were 13 of us here for the New Year’s celebration, which was absolutely spectacular!! We have enjoyed walking the grounds and two of us were brave enough for swimming! Many thanks to Andrew for sharing his home and for arranging two wonderful island tours for us. We loved having Maria and Leika hang out with us, as we are all “dog People”. We have told many friends about this place already and hope to return with some of them!! Many Thanks for a very memorable vacation!

We have been in this wonderful house & garden for 2 weeks, it’s been the best place we’ve ever stayed by miles! Much Bigger than we expected, the view from our bedroom balcony is outstanding have enjoyed many breakfasts on it before the kids were up! We loved the pool area or teenagers particularly appreciated the depth of it great to have a kitchen there too, and a table tennis. Our favorite days out here was getting to Pico do Areiro by 8 am and walking above the clouds, Porto Moniz watching the wave’s crash it, also loved faial bay, the go-kart track there was a big lit with over 3 boys. We’ve enjoyed some wonderful steak on the stone too! It was our 1st time in Madeira we loved the diversity, dramatic coastlines, mountains and cliffs even more hilly than Sheffield – ha-ha-ha! This will definitely be a holiday to remember & we hope to return one day!

Thank you Andrew, we’re sure your wonderful former home will bring much pleasure to guest for years to come, we will certainly recommend you to all our friends!

Kind Regards, L, G, J, E, B and K & B for 10 days

August 2015

Back Again!! Another fantastic time has been had at this fantastic house! We are again taken full advantage of all the facilities including the snooker table. We would highly recommend a “hit the road” land rover tour with Jeff, who took us off road, to a reggae reggae bar (best mojitos in Portugal) to see the sunset and then to a relaxed roof top restaurant. Our family’s favorite day, has to be the trip to Porto-Santo, where we relaxed on the beautiful sandy beach and body boarded in the brilliant sea! We would again recommend callheta with its inflatable in the sea and the restaurant by the harbor New Era. We have also enjoyed two great meals at the India house! As a family we have had a lovely time exploring Funchal and all its brilliant small shops, as well as the Cristiano Ronaldo Museum!

As you see we’ve had a fabulous time, so thank you very Much!!

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. The beauty and history of the house is truly breath-taking. Every time we walked through the entrance, or even entered a new room, we always felt we were in a special, historic place.
The house was also a lot of fun. Whether playing tennis, billiards or a board game on the verandah. Not to mention the perfect location to enjoy the view or wonder into town. A special location for the perfect family holiday. D, C, R, J
