We welcome you to enjoy this spacious 4-bedroom family home with pool, beautiful gardens, entertaining area, fireplace, 3.5 bathrooms over 2 levels. Perfect for families or couples get-away.

The space

The ground floor has a lovely open lounge with split level dining room and a huge kitchen, as well as a guest suite. The lounge and the kitchen both have large sliding doors leading directly to the private garden with its delightful swimming pool and barbecue area, providing a perfect setting for entertaining and intimate gatherings.

The gourmet kitchen is a centerpiece of the villa, with beautiful black granite countertops and backsplash, Electrolux appliances including refrigerator/ice maker/water dispenser, dishwasher, microwave, cooktop and oven. A regular and EXPRESSO coffee maker, cookware, dishes, utensils and more are all furnished. The gas countertop, 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 neighboring 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.

We enjoyed a wonderful time in this lovely villa during August.  Villa Garajau is maintained to a high standard and provides exceptional accommodation in beautiful surroundings.  The pool, landscaped gardens and outstanding sea views were enjoyed by the entire family and was ideal for spending time together.  Equally the space allows for quiet time such as reading under the palm trees, which was a particular favourite outside of the pool!  Our host, Susana, was responsive and friendly and especially helpful when making arrangements for airport transfer.  The location of the villa provides access to well stocked mini supermarkets and a variety of places to eat/drink, all within a 10-minute walk.  We would definitely visit again!

WOW! We spent 9 Nights in this Beautiful Retreat for our Honeymoon. Highly recommend to anyone, for a Romantic Getaway or a Family / Friend Fun Holiday in the sunshine... Within walking distance of all the local amenities & beach, so no need to hire a car! Garajau Bar at the end of the road is where we spent most of our evening drinking the lush Cocktails! Highly recommend Frango Da Guiia Garajau Restaurant, their Prawn Cocktail & Paella is exquisite! If you fancy something a little more relaxed the Pizza Place at the end of the road is delicious, they do great takeaways too! Thank you Susana for a memorable Honeymoon & with all the added extras to make it so Special! We could not fault this Villa & we hope to return with Family soon! Thank you again... Mr & Mrs Hammond xx

An absolutely stunning, well equipped, eloquently decorated villa with a beautiful pool, bbq area and lovely surroundings in a charming, residential part of Madeira. Just 15 minutes from the airport with shops, bus links and super bars and restaurants within walking distance. Get ready to feel totally relaxed as soon as you walk through the doors of this wonderful villa. The housekeeper welcomed us with fruit and fresh bread and a tour around which was a nice touch. We have fallen in love with Madeira, its chilled out, friendly vibe, everyone was lovely and welcoming. For those of you sensitive to noise bring earplugs for sleeping as the dogs in Madeira do like to bark!! Thank you so much to Susana and her house keeping team! We left with heavy hearts and hope to be back.

We had a fantastic week staying in Villa Garajau. The house is beautifully decorated to a very high standard and was immaculately clean and tidy. We were met by the housekeeper who showed us around on first arrival. The house is very private and secure with electric gates and totally secluded from the road, yet the gardens and patios open out into beautiful views of the sea. It's only a two minute walk to a small village centre with a choice of restaurants, cafes and small shops. Bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable, the big walk in shower and jacuzzi bathtub were lovely, and the kitchen was very spacious and well equipped for home cooking. The pool is just lovely, although it isn't heated and was a bit cool in late June, but still very refreshing on hot days. There are lots of pool inflatables left in the garage too! We stayed with our one year old daughter and the house was very well set up for families. Susana provides a cot, stroller and high chair, and there is a huge selection of toys and books our daughter was delighted with! One of the reasons for picking this villa was the gated pool meaning we could let our daughter run around freely. Those with young children should be aware the main staircase is open (and therefore vey attractive to climb!) but we barricaded it with a few dining chairs which seemed to make a deterrent. All in all a wonderful week in a very comfortable home and we will definitely recommend to others.

We stayed a week in Susana's villa in June 2017. The property is absolutely stunning and the pictures on airbnb don't give it justice! On arrival we dealt with Rosario, Susana's housekeeper, who showed us around the property, explaining where everything was and making sure we were comfortable and settled in. Rosario also made sure that there were freshly cut flowers throughout the villa and left some lovely bread and fruit to make sure we didn't go hungry upon our arrival. The villa itself was in an immaculate condition. The whole place was so clean, I'm pretty sure you could eat off the floor :). The villa has an excellent kitchen, with high standard appliances (especially useful was the ice maker in the American style fridge freezer!), bright and comfortable living area and cosy bedrooms with comfortable beds and bathrooms built to a very high standard. Everything was in full working order. Another point to make is that Susana / Rosario made sure that there were sufficient supplies for the likes of bin liners and dishwasher tables (which isn't always the case with holiday rentals elsewhere). The pool area is well furnished and I noticed that there are a number of inflatable toys in the garage for those of you travelling with kids. The outdoors also features a lovely garden, which is a pleasure to spend time in and a BBQ area. Again, charcoal was here for our use initially and Susana pointed out where we could go to replace it. In terms of contact, Susana was absolutely spot on. We would get a message back within a few hours of contacting her and she ensured that the covered all the bases. The villa comes with binders with carefully prepared information about the villa, the local area and directions to places of interest in the vicinity. Susana also emails some of this information before you arrive so that you know what's what - found this very useful. Would thoroughly recommend staying in this villa and it will be my first point of call next time I plan to go to Madeira.

This is a wonderful villa, which delivers all comfort you need for perfect holidays! It is fully equipped with everything, no wishes left! Beautiful garden with pool, BBQ place, chimney and great view to the ocean. We enjoyed breakefasts and dinner cooking in the great kitchen (contains all utensils) sitting outside and enjoying the nice weather. At the first day we were warmly welcomed by the housekeeper with fresh bread and beautiful fresh flower arranchment. Susana was a perfect host, immediately reacting to massages and providing plenty of usefull informations for the staying. Perfect holidays, the villa highly recommended, thank you Susana!

The villa is excellent in all respects - spacious, clean, well equipped, nicely furnished and decorated. There is a lovely pool and sun lounging area outside plus outside dining and bbq facilities. The villa is located in a quiet area within a few minutes walk to local shops and restaurants. It has very good security with an intruder alarm and electric gates for car access. Susana's communication both before and during the stay was excellent. She sent some very useful information including directions to drive to the villa, local facilities and bus routes. We had a problem with the boiler but this was very quickly resolved (a new boiler was fitted on the day!) and didn't impact on our holiday at all. We cannot fault the villa or the service provided by Susana in any way. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

I'm a traveller at heart and when the opportunity arose to host others on their journey to beautiful Madeira I jumped at it.

Villa Garajau is our piece of paradise, our holiday haven for ten years and we are so happy to share it with you. Garajau is a picturesque village with a pristine safe swimming beach and a selection of fabulous eateries nearby. Madeira it's a perfect place for walking, swimming, nature watch, snorkeling/diving and relaxing. There are two golf courses on the island too. We love the people, food and spectacular, pristine environment of Madeira; this is an amazing place to unwind.
