A superbly equipped apartment overlooking the town and waterfront of Funchal. A ten minute walk from the centre (uphill - you don't get these views at sea level!), the location has the advantages of being in a peaceful residential suburb but with easy access to the towns great shopping, eating and drinking facilities. If you choose to hire a car then parking is not an issue and there is easy access to the roads heading out of town. The apartment has everything that you could possibly need and it's indoor and outdoor areas provide a very nice place to relax (especially the swing chair!). Michael was an impeccable host and we felt thoroughly looked after and spoilt. From being driven from/to the airport (very reasonably) to our customised welcome pack on arrival, he could not have been more helpful and thoughtful. He was always available with local advice and recommendations without being intrusive. Quite simply put, we would not hesitate to recommend a stay at Casa Pico Musica and we will certainly look to stay there again on our next visit to Madeira...
If you want a genuine experience of Funchal, this is a place we definitely recommend. The apartment is located only a few minutes walk from the center of Funchal and is very comfortable. After a long day exploring Funchal and its surroundings we were happy to enjoy a break on the terrace viewing the rooftops of the city, the mountain and the ocean (all at the same time!). Michael is a fantastic host and helped us to not fall for the tourist traps and to see things we otherwise wouldn' have seen, which was invaluable!
Thanks again Michael for an unforgettable stay!
Spent 2 weeks in this apartment and had a fantastic time. As one review stated Michael was never intrusive but was always there for advice and help. The apartment is roomy and clean and ticks all the boxes. Only downside for anyone of a certain age is that it is up a hill, however there are plenty of taxis available at all times. Could not speak highly enough of Michael. A fantastic host and so very kind. Goes out of his way to make your holiday enjoyable. Hope to visit again
Casa Pico Musica was a wonderful place for us to stay for our honeymoon. Anyone who wishes to have a very relaxing and peaceful place to stay however long we would certainly recommend it. With an amazing view of Funchal and the harbour and many activities within 10-15 mins walk away from Casa Pico Musica then this accommodation is the place to be. We loved every minute of our stay and treasured every memory made. Many thanks to Michael our host for making our stay so warm and comfortable and also for the airport pick up and drop off - we appreciate it all.
Amazing apartment with great views. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Michael couldn't have been more welcoming and was always available when needed. The apartment was immaculate throughout, fully equipped, with a beautiful open air living area/ terrace which looked out over Funchal, facing the sea. I could have sat looking at that sea view forever! Left feeling thoroughly rested and refreshed. Thank you for a lovely stay and here's to the next time!
Stayed in this lovely apartment for 9days and we thoroughly enjoyed it and was the best decision for our holiday to Madiera. It was clean and comfortable, had everything you needed in the kitchen, there was a large selection of fruit waiting for us for when we arrived, the host even went out of his way to get us some basics, bread, butter, tea, wine etc for when we arrived which was a nice touch.
The apartment had fantastic views of the harbour and sea. It was a 10minute walk away from Funchal centre. Be aware the walk up to the apartment is pretty steep and there is a metal stairway to climb up to the apartment as well, we didn't mind this at all but probably not best for those who struggle walking. An all round fantastic stay / apartment, would highly recommend.
This is a brilliantly located apartment which sits above the owner's house with Southern views from the open-fronted day terrace, over the the town below, the coast and the sea beyond. It has a bedroom and ensuite shower room with separate kitchen, accessed from a side street through a lovely shady patio full of scented semi- tropical plants then up an outside spiral staircase.
Nearly all of the museums are within a couple of minutes' walk and the main town likewise is very close a little way down the hill.
Michael provided a very generous and kind welcome pack and explained about the apartment, having collected us from the airport (and took us back).
Michael was brilliant at giving information on how and where to go in the town and on the island and as he has lived here for 12 years knows an awful lot of 'inside information'. He was never intrusive but seemed to be around if we ever wanted advice.
Suffice to say if and when we return, we will stay here again.
We don't think you would fine anywhere better than this Casa Musica!
