“Madeira vacation”
Reviewed September 20, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Great hosts, fantastic views and a very relaxing place to stay. The apartment has everything you need to enjoy the best of Madeira. Quiet location and sheltered. To sit outside or inside and watch the island activity was truly a memorable occasion.
Thankyou Nuno and Carlotta for looking after us
We hope to come again.

“Memorable Holidays!”

On our arrival we rented a car at the airport.
The apartment was very easy to find following the instructions provided.
We arrived in the evening and were meet at for the check-in.
As soon as we step inside, we imediately had this wide impressive front view.
The apartment is very comfortable and stylish and we didn’t miss anything.
Everything an more than we could expect in the kitchen (4 different coffee makers and even a wok).
We slept like angels in the good quality mattresses.
Always had breakfast on the balcony watching the boats and the cruise ships.
We also had dinner when we cooked at home. And we made much use of the hammock.
We often used the excellent WiFi and the iPod dock.
The 2nd week we used the Bus service just a few meters away.
The apartment completely lived up to the description and all our expectations.
All in all, we had a memorable holidays and surely will return soon.

The booking and arrangements all were very smooth. The apartment is roomy and stylish. Both bedrooms are spacious with good wardrobe space and ample hangers. The kitchen is very well equipped . The living area is very comfortable. The wifi was good . The star selling point has to be the fabulous view over Funchal and the bay with the cruise ships coming in and out. The balcony is a lovely place to sit in the afternoon and get the sun or sit in the evening with a glass of wine. It was so relaxing. The is a bus stop at the end of the street . The walk down to the old town takes about 25 minutes down a very steep hill and you will need a taxi back up

The flat is exactly as promised. Clean and convenient, picture windows on to the balcony in both main rooms. Comfortable furniture and a full kitchen.
Drawbacks? No local supermarket, a car is needed. You will need drinking water as the tap water is heavily chlorinated. No local shops at all, but town is a convenient bus ride away if parking defeats you. Carlos, the caretaker is very helpful, and offers is services 24/7. We were met at the airport, and helped with our luggage. He has good recommendations for food and sights.

Many thanks for your review.
I'm glad you enjoyed our comfortable holiday apartment and the views.
In fact car is not necessary as there is a bus stop a few meters away from the apartment entrance. If Guests don't want to rent a car, the bus is a good option as it takes 10 minutes to get to the city centre.
Best wishes.

Beautiful views but quite a long walk into funchal and the nearest restaurants. We always took a taxi back up the hill. We hired a car for the week and although the roads are incredibly steep, we had no problems and were able to explore the island. Good weather for walking but too cold for lazing around.

We always try our best to make our Guests "get the feel of Funchal".
The restaurants are downtown with no view.
There is a bus stop a few meters away from the apartment. The city centre is 10 minutes distant from the apartment by bus.
We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again in the future.

We stayed in Murteiras apartment in May 2014 in time for the annual flower festival. This is a beautiful apartment and is very clean and of a high quality. The views from the bedroom and living room are fantastic! You can watch the cruise liners coming and going and oversee Funchal and up in to the surrounding mountains. Funchal is a beautiful, unspoilt town and holds it tradition and beauty. Be sure to plan your visit well and book on to plenty of Levada walks...a must see! We also went big game fishing for Tuna, Whale & Dolphin watching and sampled the local cuisine. The Flower Festival was outstanding. I'd recommend this apartment at New Year for fantastic views of the fireworks. The owner arranged our taxi transfer and responds well to emails. The taxi driver was very helpful with tips and history on the area. Funchal is very steep and narrow, driving isn't for the faint hearted! We didn't use a car and managed by foot. However you need to be fit, it took us 45 minutes to walk back from town and it's all up hill. There is a bus route outside the apartment but only runs hourly. The apartment is located on the side of town populated by the locals. It's ok but don't expect a taxi rank on your doorstep or shops. We arrived around 7pm in the evening tired and hungry. A welcome pack or bottle of wine, bread and milk would have been helpful. If I stayed here again I'd email ahead asking for some basic provisions which I wouldn't mind paying for. All in all though, this was a beautiful apartment, was fully equipped with bedding, towels, glasses, kitchen utensils. It was good value for its quality and sea views which you can't get anywhere else. Just be aware of the steep climb and it's location out of town. If you're looking to escape the hotels and noise this is a quiet spot to retreat to.

“THE BEST PLACE TO STAY AND THE BEST VIEW IN MADEIRA ISLAND”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 for a stay in September 2012

people found this review helpful

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Nuno's beautiful apartment in Funchal - Madeira Island.

The apartment was absolutely delightful. The moment you walk through the door you can instantly feel how much attention to detail went into designing and equipping it.

From the highly tasteful decor to all the little extra special touches, the owner has ensured that every need was catered for whilst providing a very welcoming and luxurious feel.
A good selection of electrical appliances was available in the spacious kitchen, even a Nespresso coffee machine.

Murteiras Apartment is ideally situated above the city, the view from the balcony affords an outstanding panorama over the bay and mountains of Funchal. It was a pleasure to sit on the balcony in the evening with a glass of wine and enjoy the view.

We often find very difficult to get a good night’s sleep when away from home, this was certainly not the case here, it was a joy to be able to fall asleep on a comfortable bed.

The owner was extremely helpful in providing lots of information on places to visit, restaurants, etc, which really made our holiday.

We were able to explore the very best that Madeira Island has to offer and enjoy beautiful places in the 7 short days we were there.

I strongly recommend to visit the Mercado dos Lavradores to see what’s available in fresh produce and then stock up the kitchen. If you like seafood you’re in for a treat, be sure to try the amazing Black Scabbard (Espada Preta) fish.
There is a cafe/bakery and a grocery store within easy walking distance.

We went swimming to Caniço just a few kilometres drive away, the water was 22 degrees in September and crystal clear.

Madeira Island is incredibly beautiful and the people are genuinely friendly.

I will highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to enjoy a relaxing holidays in Madeira Island, specially if you want to stay away from the tourist crowds.

We can not wait to return.
