I was extremely fortunate to stay in Connie's apartment back in 2009 (sorry for the date on this review but it didn't give me the option to put the right date in!).
I take my elderly mother away every year and we have had some terrific holidays but this one is definitely one of the best. The apartment has absolutely everything you need including the most fantastic terrace where you can spend many a happy hour watching the boats, having a bbq or just sitting and admiring the pot plants that are lovingly cared for by an irrigation system!
The penthouse is easily accessible via the ground floor car park and there is no need for a car as transport is arranged by Connie on booking and there is a bus stop just outside the apartment which will take you into Funchal if you fancy venturing further afield.
That said, there is everything you would need in Garajau. A well equipped supermarket, some great restaurants and just next door a fabulous bar where you will be welcomed at all hours and fed the most delicious food, all for about half the price you would expect to pay in other European holiday destinations.
If we go back to Madeira, I would only want to stay in this apartment - I really don't think it can be beaten!!!
