Our accommodation was changed on our arrival. It would have been better if we were informed beforehand so we had the choice whether to still stay. The house did not have a great view it was overlooking a building site. The roof leaked and the house was not so clean. On checking out I received a very inappropriate photo and I can only hope that her mobile phone was hacked. All in all would not recommend.

The Cabana is such a lovely and cosy place, like a little paradise in the hills. It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful nature far off of the usual hotels and commercial driven spots. Martim and his wife where wonderful hosts, alsway available when we needed help, even at night. Thank you so much for that you two! At the Cabana you have access to an ecological garden with fresh vegetables, fruits and herbes. Everything super delicious. There are always fresh eggs from the chickens in the morning. The water from the tab is directly form the mountain well, so there is no need to buy bottled watrer. All in all we couldn't have wished for more! Thanks again for everything Martim!

Very unique experience, isolated in the mountains. It's not for those who aren't into nature but if you want hippy paradise then this is your place !

The wood cabin is every bit as lush as the pictures suggest. The place is tucked away up a hill side amongst the trees. It's a great place to feel away from it all, and provides a good base for exploring the west of the island. Really pretty, though maybe not the place for your if you don't like hearing insects, birds, and lizards around you.

An oasis in an oasis! As frequent airbnb users this has gone above and beyond anything we have experienced. The hosts have thought of everything and more to give you the most comfortable stay possible while blending seamlessly into the beautiful environment you are surrounded by. We were greeted with fresh produce from the gardens, eggs from the hens and fruits from the orchards. We are already missing the sound of bird song and the smells of the gardens. We will undoubtedly be back! Thank you to everyone at Casas Maravilhas

Absolutely stunning place. Nice a secluded. Car needed to get around but is good location for coast and mountains. Really can't stress how pictures don't do it justice. U have to visit to appreciate how amazing this place is. Thanks for a wonderful end to our honeymoon.

It was an awesome stay. We had everything we wanted cats, dogs, birds, turtles and a perfect view. It was close to the city center of Calheta and all the sights of the island were in good reach by car. The host, in our case Monica, was very friendly and considerate, especially when we asked for an extra bed. We got fresh eggs and vegetables from the garden. It was wonderful and we would recommend the cabana to anyone wanting to enjoy the mountains of the sunny side of Madeira.
