The tourism registered accommodation gives you the best that Madeira can offer by way of self-catering. Guests comfort & security are the owners priority. A fully equipped kitchen with all crockery, cutlery & cooking implements, en suite facilities & two days per week maid service. The apartment is leading out to the guests swimming pool or balcony. Property story. The wealthy Artoguia family constructed the original house in 1929. They owned the majority of the surrounding land, which was used for agricultural purposes. Grapes were grown for the production of Madeira wine. Citrus fruits and bananas were also cultivated. The property was purchased in 1998 by the present owners, Ian & Maria. Restoration started soon after, to bring the building back to life again. Care was taken not to change the Portuguese style of the building. It was not until two years later that plans were set in motion to renovate the wine cellar under the house to accommodate two self-catering studios. Initially they were used by close friends and family. In 2001, plans were passed to allow the building to accommodate two more studios, registered with Madeira Tourist Authorities. Therefore a third and final phase of construction was undertaken to create on the top floor roof level that housed Maria, Ian and their children. Vista Oceano self catering was launched. A joint decision was made to stay living on the premises to enable the couple to keep the family atmosphere with the guests, by being available to meet and greet as well as being available to offer any help or assistance when needed. A very important part of what McBride's strive to achieve here at Vista Oceano is a warm and friendly 'home from home'. Maria grew up in Funchal, Madeira & Ian grew up in Newport,south wales.More

Just spent a great week at Maria and Ian’s. The apartment was perfect - large balcony, comfy bed and spotlessly clean. I would definitely recommend.
