This apartment on the 2nd floor of a residential block is in a perfect location being central to all you would want to see and do in Funchal. The apartment has a wonderful view from the main balcony over the bay. There is a smaller balcony to the side for when the sun shifts. The apartment is directly over from the casino which means you have the town and old town to the east and the hotel district and Lido to the west, all within walking distance. The apartment is spotlessly clean and modern with comfortable beds and all amenities. There is a large supermarket in the ground floor of a shopping complex 5 minutes downhill and some cafes, a bakery and a bistro round the corner. Carlota met us on arrival and was always available by text, phone or email during our stay. Many thanks to Carlota for allowing us a few extra hours in the apartment on our departure day as there was no-one coming immediately after us - it made a big difference.
We had a great stay at this apartment. It has good amenities and a lovely view over Funchal. It was clean and the host was helpful and friendly. The location was ideal for us, within a short walk to central Funchal and is close to the local bus stops and bus tour pick up points. It is near a large supermarket and shopping centre and it's less than 5 Euros in a taxi back to the apartment from there, which is handy when stocking up with heavy food and water. There are some very nice restaurants and a great bakery at the end of the road, as well as the Casino and a large park with a small play area for the kids. Overall we had a excellent time at this apartment and would definitely recommend it.
