Vila Jasmim is situated within Funchal’s prized resort area of the Lido which offers easy access to the sea. Our family home of 30 years has been recently renovated and now provides you with the style and convenience one expects from modern living as well as the opportunity to relax and enjoy the views from the privacy of your own holiday get-away. The house was renovated with the intention of creating a guesthouse where most of the features, old furniture and contents could be up-cycled and reused to offer our guests a cosy feel of a vintage bohemian style - an eclectic mix of old and new! The house can accommodate up to seven guests in four bedrooms and has plenty of communal spaces to entertain or seek refuge for a bit of quiet time.
If you are interested in renting Vila Jasmim for your holiday or if you would like to take a group of people for a specific activity such as yoga, walking, diving or something else, Get in Touch with us. We can help you organise your stay at Vila Jasmim. For more photos of the house go to Gallery.
Location and Access
Vila Jasmim is located in the tourist area of Funchal, very close to the sea. The house sits in a residential area called Ajuda, at walking distance from supermarkets, shopping centre, restaurants and cafes. By the sea, which will take you about 5 minutes walking, you will find the Lido coastal promenade that will take you all the way from Lido to the picturesque fishing village of Camara de Lobos on a 5km walk. All along this promenade you will find several opportunities to go for a swim: there are three public swimming pool complexes with access to the sea and facilities - Lido, Ponta Gorda and Doca do Cavacas - or, if you prefer a natural pebble beach for a wild dip into the sea, choose either Praia do Gorgulho or Praia Formosa.
The centre of town is a 30 minutes walk from the property or you can take the bus just outside the property on the main road. If you hire a car the access to the house is done through automatic gates into a covered parking space. There is enough space for a second car to park inside but there is also free public parking on the road. At the back of the garage there is a washbasin for cleaning your beach and/or diving gear, bicycles, mountain boots, etc, as well as a clothes drying space.
Description of the House
Vila Jasmim is a two floor house with an enclosed garden that can accommodate up to 7 guests in 4 bedrooms. The outdoor space was designed to give our guests different corners of social gathering or solitude. Apart from the parking space and the utility outdoor space, the property has a well loved garden with a lawn and a diverse collection of fruit and ornamental plants that thrive in a subtropical climate. Outside the kitchen there is a an eating area with a big table, a parasol and stunning views over the ocean. From the lounge you can access a covered veranda that works as an outdoor extra lounge in the shade when is too hot, or a winter garden for cooler weather. On the west side of the house there is a big patio with sofas and a parasol, surrounded by tropical plants which is the perfect spot to watch the sunset with a drink and some nibbles! On the top floor there is a veranda along the front of the house with breath taking views, shared by the three bedrooms.
On the ground floor there is the entrance hall and staircase leading to a big lounge, dinning area and kitchen all in an open space with french doors overlooking to the garden. There is also an en-suite twin/double bedroom with direct access to the garden. At the back of the house there is an utility space with a washing machine and a space to hang your coats and leave your shoes and a toilet. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. One en-suite double room, one single room, another double room and a big bathroom.
