Vila Rostrum stands at the end of a cul-de-sac on the western outskirts of Funchal. Its elevated position on a steep hillside grants it spectacular views over the whole of the Funchal amphitheatre, but the setting need be no impediment to guests with walking difficulties, as one of the luxuries provided is a private lift, whisking you up from the street level entrance hall to the main accommodation level some 20feet above.
One of the advantages of Vila Rostrum is that smaller parties can rent part of the house, thus enjoying the exclusive use of its splendid facilities without having to pay superfluous bedrooms.
The main entrance opens on to a large hallway, where there is an oval dining table at your disposal and a piano.
The ground floor of the villa sleeps 2-3 people, and has a spacious living-dining room, an extremely well equipped open plan kitchen, a bedroom with electronically adjustable adjoining twin beds, a small TV room with internet access and a sofa bed for a third person. There is a full bathroom with under-floor heating, a bathtub/shower and a spacious separate shower cubicle. There is an additional cloakroom.
Upstairs are two further twin bedrooms with balconies, one with a television and both with direct dial telephones. There is another full bathroom also with under floor heating, bath/shower and separate shower cubicle shared by the two bedrooms.

For parties of up to 11 people, there is an additional self contained apartment on the second floor. It has a lounge/diner with plasma cable television, DVD and music centre and doors to the front panoramic balcony. The open kitchen is fully equipped, including a dishwasher. There is a guest toilet, full bathroom and a twin bedroom that also has doors leading on to the panoramic balcony. Stairs from the lounge lead up to the mezzanine floor where there is an open area with internet access and a double bedroom with full en-suite bathroom.

Ideal for families or friends travelling together, as all the outside areas are shared, but you have the privacy of your own accommodation.

The panoramic views from the terraces and garden area that adjoin the lounge are truly breathtaking, and the private swimming pool has been designed to appear suspended above the town and the ocean. There is a poolside changing room with shower and toilet and a utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Furniture for dining alfresco is provided on the covered terrace, which also has a terrace heater for the cooler evenings. There are plenty of sun beds and chairs and the spacious barbecue area is covered.
The small indoor pool has an exercise jet stream for those that are feeling energetic.
Although Vila Rostrum is set away from the town centre, a hire car is not essential here, as a frequent bus service stops just 300 meters or so from the villa. A couple of local restaurants and simple shops are within walking distance, whilst the near by Madeira Shopping Centre boasts a huge supermarket for stocking up on groceries and fresh produce, as well as numerous boutiques and a multi-screen cinema. Then again who needs the silver screen, when the night time views from your terrace across the city are so mesmerising?
