What’s the equipment of the house?
When travelling, you want to travel as light as possible. You certainly don’t want to drag unnecessary stuff with you. Especially if you would like to take some nice souvenirs back home, the weight of your suitcase is something you don’t want to worry about. Therefore, we include a list of the important equipment of the house that may help you to decide what things to pack.

Zoals je kunt zien beschikt het huis over WiFi kabel- en satelliet-TV met een aantal Duitse zenders. Door de ligging van Madeira ten opzichte van de Astra-satelliet is de ontvangst meestal goed, maar bij bepaalde atmosferische omstandigheden kan de ontvangst gestoord zijn of zelfs wegvallen. Dan blijft gelukkig het schitterende uitzicht vanuit het huis over. Daar bent u uiteindelijk ook voor gekomen.
De enige Nederlandstalige zender die legaal op Madeira te ontvangen is, is de Nederlands-Vlaamse zender BVN. Op dit moment bevindt dit station zich op de kabel kanal 270.
You can see a lot of our equipment featuring in the images of our house we have gathered in a longish slide show on the page ‘picture book‘.
We have tried to be adequate in summing up the equipment of the house we think essential for you to know. If there is any question you would like to ask, don’t hesitate. You can contact us using the information in the ‘contact‘ page or use the form in the page ‘how to book the house’.
Much of the equipment in the above list are also visible in the images on the various pages. The page ‘picutre book‘ shows the house in use, with people sometimes, sometimes with a messy kitchen, in other words, like a real home looks when there are people living there.
You may think that with all this equipment, the rent will be outrageous. Let us reassure you. The prices are very moderate. We don’t wish to be the cheapest, but you get a top house for a medium-range price. Have a look at them here.
In the course of time, some items in the above list will break and have to be replaced. However, the functionalities of the house will not be affected. Therefore, change of the items that appear in some photographs will never be accepted as a cause for a complaint or a refund.
The flower in the background is the Sapatinho, the Venus Shoe, an orchid that you will find in many Madeiran gardens and on many terraces and balconies. It is a typical Christmas flower as it is flowering in winter.
