"We stayed at Madeira house in September 2012. The villa was lovely and clean and we were pleased to find a welcome pack and bottle of wine and card wishing us a nice stay, surprised and really appreciated. Madeira house is in a perfect position for the beach and restaurants and really is only 2 mins away. The beach is lovely but it did cost 21 Euros each day for sunbeds which I thought expensive but after the first day relaxing on the beach I realised it was worth it. Madeira house was the perfect place to chill in the evening and enjoy a glass of wine on the upstairs balcony looking at the stars and listening to the sea. My daughter and I felt safe and the area is well lit at night. I must say we felt we had one of the best holidays ever staying at Madeira house and we cant wait to go again. Thanks Ed!

"We had an amazing time, it's a really special place! I'll be recommending it to friends. " - Ruth and friends, September 2012

"We had a wonderful time in Vale do Lobo and really enjoyed your house (and the fantastic cleaning service!). " - Werst Family, July 2012

"Vale do Lobo is a terrific resort. The grounds were well maintained and covered with flowers. The restaurants and bars on the resort provided a variety of food options and were facing a praca that had live music in the evenings. We have two young children and there were numerous amenities at the resort that cater to families at reasonable rates. There was a Kangaroo club with activities for the kids, miniature golf, staff at the common pool that would entertain your kids for a few hours, and activities in the evenings for the children (e.g., bounce houses, face painting). Madeira House was fabulous. It has one of the best locations on the resort since it is a very short walk to the pools, beach, and restaurants. The house was fully furnished and very comfortable for our family of six. There were several balconies to watch the sun set and air conditioning throughout to cool down at night. The layout of the home was terrific and the photos on the website were accurate so you know what to expect. We will definitely be back! " - Da Silva family, June 2012

"We had a great time staying at Madeira house, it was perfect for us being so close to the beach and the restaurant area. The terraces have wonderful sea views and are ideal for sitting and relaxing. " - Craig and Helen, June 2012

"As always Vale do Lobo is a perfect holiday resort with lots of lovely places to visit and eat, explore the surrounding areas within easy travelling distance, keep prices down go to local supermarkets etc in Almancil. It is certainly one of our favourite places (our treat) walking along a quiet beach sitting watching the waves, and of course a good base for the golf. This year we chose Madeira House to stay in and it was just delightful very traditional and well laid out giving enough space for everyone. On arrival wine, water, flowers and a wee note a more personal touch which made you feel very welcome. I would certainly recommend this house, its location is perfect for the praca and beach. Beautiful roll on next year many thanks. " - The Stewarts, May 2012

"Just home from a wonderful stay at Madeira House. Location is perfect just a 3 minute walk to the beach,Praca and communal pool. Supermarket is only a 10 minute walk away and is very well stocked. House was fantastic with everything you could possibly need. We requested a cot, highchair and stair gates all of which were provided and in excellent condition the real mattress in the travel cot was a great addition and the shutters on the windows helped keep the early morning sun out so a lie in was possible! Satelite TV allowed us to keep up with the soaps and all the goings on at home. Ed could not have been more helpful in providing us with relevant information and the manual in the house has details on absolutely everything in the house and the surrounding area. The welcome pack was greatly appreciated as well. We will definately visit Madeira House again. " - Louise, Jeremy and Thomas, May 2012

"On reflection this has been a fantastic holiday.The Villa was perfect and practical for ourselves and our three girls aged 12,8 and 4. In the fabulous sunshine we were fortunate to have, it was a blessing that the spacious beach was only a five minute walk away! The resort is maintained to very high standard and is beautiful, restaurants only a five minute stroll overlooking the sandy beach.Ed was really helpful prior to the holiday signposting us to a reliable taxi firm for transfers and always responded to our inquiries within a few hour, even organizing a DVD player, a godsend for appropriate TV viewing in the evenings! The only downside was that our holiday actually had to come to an end and it's been soggy England ever since!!! " - Jess and Family, June 2012

"Just to let you know we have arrived back safely after a fabulous relaxing week in Madeira House. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - albeit arriving on New Years Day was not good planning for grocery shopping..... more fool us! As you mentioned the resort was quiet but that's just the way we like things nowadays and the weather was really good for us. We will gladly recommend the property and location to friends and relatives. " - Alan, January 2012

"We had a lovely time thank you :) Definitely recommend to family and friends " - Young Family, October 2011

"I hope we can keep in touch as we did enjoy our stay in a such beautiful house. We hope to come back. " - Rodrigues Family, May 2011

"Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that we had a lovely holiday and enjoyed your villa very much. The weather could have been better (it rained most days!) but that didn't spoil things for us. " - Lane Family, April 2011

"we had a great time in your lovely house, were very lucky with the weather. We all enjoyed the faultless organization, the clean and tastful house and the serene atmosphere of Val do Lobo (this was our 3rd time there), but, naturally, most of all the beautiful beach and water. " - Padberg Family, September 2011

"We arrived back this afternoon after a good flight. We really enjoyed our stay at Madeira House and thought the bathrooms were very nice and the air conditioning was very welcome at times. It was also good to have some english channels. My husand could keep up on the news! " - Mr and Mrs Collins, June 2010

"We had a great time in Vale do Lobo and in the Madeira House. I found it very nice and thoughtful the welcome pack you had waiting for us! " - Vervoorn Family, July 2009

"Just wanted to send a quick e-mail and say how lovely the villa was; it truly made the holiday much more enjoyable and we had such a nice time. Thank you for being so efficient before we left in replying to my countless e-mails and messages! You were so incredibly helpful. You have a lovely home out there and I'm glad we chose there to stay! I will most definitely be in touch again in the near future!" - Forzoni Family, July 2009

"We have visited Vale do Lobo before and wanted to ensure that we would be in walking distance of the beach and Praça so that our teenagers could enjoy the freedom to come and go as they pleased. This villa could not have been in a more perfect position, wonderfully peaceful and quiet and yet literally a couple of minutes walk to the Centre of Vale do Lobo.

The regular maid service was excellent and unobtrusive, the welcoming bottles of water and wine were very welcome!

The owner was always very prompt with emails etc which made the booking procedure very easy. We would not hesitate to return to this villa or to recommend it to friends." - Jolly Family, May 2009

"My husband and I spent a happy and enjoyable week at Madeira House in May with our daughter and 2 small grandchildren. There was 2 lovely vases of roses, some wine, water and fruit as a lovely welcome. The villa was comfortable and we felt very at home and had plenty of room especially with small children who made good use of the beach toys left in the cupboard! Everything was very clean and the new bathrooms and kitchen were a bonus. It only took under 5 minutes to walk to the beach and as the villa is in a cul de sac there was not a lot of traffic, and the children could play on the patio in the shade of the trees.

In May it was very quiet which made it all the more relaxing. We miss the balcony sea view at breakfast and in the evening.

Ed is very friendly in his communications and helpful in every respect. All in all Madeira House represents good value in what is an expensive upmarket resort and we wouldnt hesitate to use it again." - McNulty Family, May 2009

"We have just returned from a two week stay in Madeira House. It was wonderful. We arrived to fresh fruit, wine and water to welcome us, very much appreciated. It was immaculate, couldn't ask for more. Everything you could need was provided. The villa is very spacious, clean and airy. We made full use of the balconies soaking up all the sun we could from breakfast through to dinner and with 4 kids with us the 2 bathrooms were essential. The resort is amazing, and the beaches are out of this world. There are restaurants everywhere if you want to dine out or the kitchen is fully equipped if you choose to eat in. We will definitely return." - Kent Family, April 2009

"We enjoyed a fantastic week at Vale do Lobo staying at Madeira House. A fantastic property in an excellent location within the resort. Very clean and well equipped. Great just sitting out on the balcony looking out to sea, we loved the view. The owners had even left a lovely bowl of fruit and a bottle of wine to welcome us. Tremendous value for money and even maid service thrown in too! Highly recommended to anyone considering a stay at Vale do Lobo. Hope to come back some time soon." - Ian and Eleanor , February 2009

"We had a very nice holiday in your villa Madeira House, thank you. The beach was really near and very clean and perfect for our little daughter. And above all we had perfect weather during October!" - Bispo Mendes Family, October 2008

"My family went to Madeira House this year (2008) in September and were very impressed, it completely exceeded our expectations. The house was immaculately clean and very user friendly especially if you have children, and the views are beautiful. We will definitely be going back as the house and the area, offers various entertainment, good quality food and exceptionally good beaches which are 5 minutes walk away." - Race Family, September 2008

"Thank you so much for making our holiday go so well, the villa is wonderful and the extra you did for my husband's 70th well, words fail me, we ate and drank it all! Thank you." - Wharton Family, June 2008

"You have a lovely house on a quiet section of Vale do Lobo, it's very beautiful.

Everything is well arranged as far as organization is concerned, the neighbourhood of the property is highbrow and golf is everywhere. If you want rest, here is where you will get it.

We certainly had a great rest, thanks." - Boer Family, May 2008

"We very much enjoyed our stay in Madeira House. It is the second time we have stayed there, and we had the benefit of several improvements. Two lovely new bathrooms, and a nice new kitchen. Next door is a lovely orange tree bearing fat oranges, and next to it the orange blossom tree smelt heavenly. A lot of spring flowers were out and the scents that floated in the air were very relaxing." - Bondi Family, March 2008

"We had a lovely time at Maderia House, the house was very comfortable, and the maid sevice every day was far superior to services we have had with previous rental properties; and the wine and fruit was a very welcome touch arriving late at night with three small kids!" - McGoff Family, October 2007

"Within 50 minutes of the plane landing, we were opening the door of the villa! Amazing!

When we saw the bottle of water and bottle of wine waiting on the dining room table for us on our arrival, we knew Madeira House would be a bit special. We couldn't believe our luck when we saw how close we were to the beach and restaurants.

The villa was wonderful, 2 upstairs terraces, the front terrace with sea views, it was ideal early morning to sit with a cup of coffee, watching the sun rise! Lots of hot water for our showers not like most hotels when the water runs cold halfway through. Very spacious and the newly fitted kitchen was great!

We'll definitely recommend Madeira House to all our friends and we'll be back again in spring 2008." - Marie, Sue and Pauline, October 2007

"Thanks so much, We had such a super holiday. The house was perfect, so convenient and close to the beach. The local management firm where so helpful and things done straight away when we needed it to be.

I will definitely recommend it to other. The whole process was hassle free!" - Pryce Family, September 2007

"We had a lovely stay for our holiday, with loads of room for the children, close to the beach, swimming pool and restaurants. Everyone was very friendly and it was a place we'd recommend for future holidays." - Clark Family, September 2007

"We spent a fantastic week in Vale do Lobo! Madeira House is in an ideal location and with four kids ranging in ages from 9-16, it was also ideal for them to get around. The house is very well fitted out and cool inside (great when its so hot!) and we even had two great barbeques as well as using all the local restaurants. Definitely worth a visit." - Adrian and Kim, July 2007

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Madeira House, and will most certainly be going back there again. The resort represents the perfect balance between a quiet beach break, and being in the perfect location to do all the things we want to do. The villa itself is in a perfect spot - everything is within a short walk. Lastly, the personal attention (such as the wine) was a really nice touch." - Andre and Sofia, July 2007

"We had a great time at Madeira House in July 2007, in a good position with wonderful sea views just 5 minutes walk to the beach. Vale Do Lobo is a very exclusive resort with restaurants close to the beach. We didn't want to leave and come back home to the rain!" - Craig and Helen, July 2007

"Madeira House = A fantastic property in a fantastic location. With 4 adults and 2 children, we were worried that things could be a bit 'cramped', but upon arrival we quickly realized just how large the house is and had a superb 2 weeks. The online photographs are accurate and the beach seemed even closer than advertised!! 10 out of 10 - Many Thanks from the Jenkins family." -Jenkins, June 2007

"We stayed at Madeira House in May 2007 and it was fantastic. For a family of five, there was more than ample space and the location of the villa was superb just a five minute walk from the beach, bars and restaurants. The villa itself is well equipped, full of character and I would definitely recommend to anyone." - Eyre, May 2007

"We absolutely adored the property, full of character and extremely spacious and well kitted out. There was everything we could need. We made good use of the new kitchen, the barbeque and of course, the wonderful terraces!

The position of the property was superb, really close to the Praca and the beach. The views from the terraces were great too. We loved the 'pueblo' style and all the flora, which was in full bloom. A beautifully maintained and tranquil location.

The lovely fresh roses, fruit basket and bottle of wine were very much appreciated and were a very nice and unexpected touch - thank you!

We are not golfers, however, the courses looked wonderful. We hired a car and explored a little, taking trips to Loule, Alte, Almancil, Quarteira, etc - all of which were easily and quickly accessible.

All in all, we had a wonderful time and couldn't really fault anything about the property, the booking service and communications with yourself, or the resort. The maid service was excellent and frequent. Should we visit the area again in the future, we would definitely look to book Madeira House - and will also recommend this to friends and family.

Thanks for allowing us the experience!" - Baker, May 2007

"My family and I have just returned from spending Christmas in the Madeira House. We had a lovely time there and found the house ideal for our holiday. The house had everything we needed for a family holiday and is perfectly situated close to the beach, bars and restaurants. We had such a good time that we are already talking about the possibility of going back in the summer and possibly next Christmas. A perfect house for a family holiday. Thank you very much." - Falkiner, Christmas 2006

"We enjoyed our stay in Madeira House. It was a house full of character and very well equipped. The location was good as it was near the sea and we had many pleasant walks along with beach watching the red ball of the sun sink into the sea. The house was a comfortable size and there was a pleasant balcony upstairs where we could sit and enjoy the sun. There was also a nice patio at the front which would be beautiful in the warmer weather." - Bondi, February 2006
