The experience from booking our stay, up until leaving Summerplace (which we really didn't want to do) was top notch. Having received my online booking but then having a temporary glitch with their internet connection, Barry phoned me to answer any queries I had and to tell me all about Summerplace. And what you see on their web page -...

We stayed at Summerplace for 3 nights recently in late October My wife and I + her Parents, everything there seems just so right, from the atmosphere created by the furniture, to the wonderful breakfasts and views. Barry was an absolute Gent and host who just knew instinctively how to pitch things for the varied needs of his guests, sadly...

We enjoyed a very peaceful week at Summerplace thanks to Barry and Johannes' careful and professional hosting. They moved to Madiera from CapeTown, and the excellence at running guesthouses so evident in South Africa is all here: thoughtful interior design in the rooms, excellent three-course meals with wine included (all fo just 30 euros per person) three days a week,...

With 26 out of 28 TripAdviser reviews rating Summerplace Guesthouse as "excellent", expectations were high for our week-long stay. The friendly greeting by the owners was a good start and we were pleased to find that the 'three times a week' dinner was on that night, and so we joined four other guests on the terrace for a glass of...

We have been for nearly one week at Architects Cottage in Jardim do Mar. It is separated from the guest house in Faja da Ovelha, which lies several miles away. Jardim do Mar is a lovely seaside town with a small number of restaurants (recommendation: "Tal Mar"). Parking places are located only a few footsteps away. The cottage has a...

We spent six days here and had a wonderful time. The location is perfect, very quiet and the views are perfect. Johannes and Barry are outstanding hosts and the food is very good indeed. If you are looking for a romantic getaway, then this has to be your first choice.

We went there two years ago (in November 2008 exactly) but the memories still linger... It was a fantastic stay certainly because of the island and its treisures, but also thanks to that fantastic little guesthouse and its friendly owners. They gave us the best tips for eating and sightseeing. Though they aren't Madeiran (one is German, the other is...

Barry and Johannes should be proud of what they have achieved here. We had the most relaxing holiday ever. The location is fantastic. Breakfast took an hour, not just because of the first class food, but because it was just a great place to be. I would strongly recommend having an evening meal at Summerplace......sublime. We went as guests but...
