“Absolute delight”
Reviewed May 23, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

It is such a joy to read the reviews of all other people as they only reconfirm what we have experienced during our week's stay in Quinta Esperanca. It all starts in our case with very kind, caring and generous Helena & Roberto who made us feel very welcome and at home at this beautiful house with wonderful sea and town views, spacious garden and most of all, very comfortable and delicately decorated rooms. Me and my friend, we invited our mums for a holiday and this place was a real treat for them. Staying at the Orchid and Lavender rooms, meeting up at the garden seating area in front of our room or in the terrace, we could share a nice time together and rest, watching beautiful sunsets above Funchal. The location was perfect for exploring old town Funchal as well as venturing to other places in Madeira. The clear instructions made it easy to find it. Actually the whole process of booking, arrival, stay and departure went as smooth as possible with prompt email reply from Helena when necessary. Dear Helena and Roberto, thank you very much for this 'absolute delight'. We hope the competition on Sunday went well for Roberto. We hope to see you again at our next trip to Madeira. Andrea & Danka & (grand) mothers :-)

“We will be back; wonderful location, property and hosts.”
Reviewed March 4, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We stayed in the Lavender appartment which is the smallest of the 4 appartments and is on the ground floor. The room itself is small but perfectly adequate as you will not need to spend much time inside. As described you will spend most of the time outside. There is a table and chairs outside the appartment and although there are 2 other appartments on the ground floor this feels like your own space. There is a 2 storey spiral staircase outside the appartment which takes you upstairs to the covered terrace. This has comfortable chairs to sit, read and drink while taking in the stunning views out over Funchal below. There are large gardens surrounding the house with flowers and fruit trees throughout. We had a large banana plant outside our appartment and there are mangoes and passion fruit as well in the garden. There is an unheated pool which was a little chilly in February!!
The apparments are fantastically placed within Funchal. It is an easy but steep walk down into Funchal old town with its restaurants and bars. It is a stiff walk back but there are plentiful buses back up the hill with 2 routes stopping right outside the house with another 3 routes stopping about 200 yards away near the bakery (The bakery is fantastic with fresh baked bread available from 7am to 11pm 7 days a week).
Helena and Roberto, our hosts, could not have been more helpful. Booking the and paying for the appartment was easy and they arranged a taxi for us to collect us from the airport and take us to the appartment. The property is a labour of love for the owners. The property is a nineteenth century hotel and was then a private house within the family. The property had been in a severe state of disrepair but is gradually been restored room by room. There a big plans for future developments and we look forward to returning to see how they continue to restore the building to its former glory.
Mr Alves, the taxi driver recommended by Helena was also very helpful. He took us to and from the airport but also took us out to start points for walks when the bus service did not suit and he was a mine of useful information.
Thank you again to Helena and Roberto for a wondeful holiday. Keep up the good work in restoring this beautiful house. We look forward to returning to see how things progress and would also like to try out on of your other properties at some point.
Best wishes.
Mark and Wendy

“Lovely Place”
Reviewed October 28, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We had two wonderful weeks in Quinta Esperanca.
The appartment (we stayed in Orchid) as well as the complete surroundings, garden are done with a very loving hand. We enjoyed the spectacular view from our balcony as well as from the common terrace (which we had for our own as most of the other guests did not use the spiral stair) during sunset, sunrise, day and night. Could not get tired of it.
All very well organized by Helena and Roberto who always and immediately helped in case there was a problem or we had questions.
The area is residential, beautiful houses around, bakery Mariazinha for fresh rolls in the morning and a small supermarket in walking distance.
Old city and centre with restaurants, bars, cafes can be reached by a 15 minutes walk. It is steep though, for the way back we often took a short taxi ride (unless we needed to loose some calories after dinner)
We would definitely recommend the Quinta, especially for individual holidays which you will not find in the big Funchal hotel area.
Hope to come back one day...
